As always
, the Swerving Points column does not concern itself with the tier-one highlights of the game completed. Usually it finds the plays that shaped the game on a secondary level, because theyíre important too, and itís nice to remember that a football game is more than just the scoring plays or interceptions.Today Iíll bring up three developments and decisions from Glendale that figure to shape the rest of the Seattle Seahawksí 2018 season. None of them are Earl Thomasí injury. There has been much e-ink (eenk?) spilt all over this site and others about that crappy turn of events.Fine, before we dive in, you can have one Sportscentery highlight, one actual turning point. Itís Mike Davisí second touchdown. Since weíll be seeing more of him, again, than a lot of us figured. Partially because he is good.Now, we swerve.Interior pass rush shows up, by Jarran Reed and Poona FordSamuel Gold hooks us up again. If youíre on Twitter, you probably want to follow him.The sack is Reedís third of the year. Needless to say, but gonna be said anyways, if an interior lineman were to produce a 12-sack season, that would be news, and would surely earn Reed some accolades and honors.The fact that it comes on the Cardinalsí first drive is a bonus because it forces adjustments. On a third down, too. But whatís equally important here is that Reed got help.ďPoona Ford got a good Pro Football Focus grade. So what?ĒI hear your skepticism. In fact itís quite rare for me to cite PFF grades at all, because their opaque process is questionable at best. But he was in for 17 plays and made a positive impression. Itís one thing for PFF to give Aaron Rodgers a negative grade on a 333-5-0 day. A false positive seems much less likely. If Ford was disruptive, it would be reflected in a good grade. If he was absent or a non-factor, not very likely. Anyway, the Seahawks are a team that desperately needs interior pass rush because the defensive ends are beat up. Ford trucking people would have a (C)heavy impact, allowing Seattle to maybe Dodge a loss or two.The Will Dissly sadnessSlightly overshadowed by the gameís other significant injury (and controversial hand gesture) was Disslyís injury. He played all of eight healthy snaps, and on the ninth one the ghost of Jimmy Graham stole Disslyís patella tendon, wrecking his 2018 and maybe even sending his 2019 season into doubt.The stadium that has often been called Seattleís home away from home for excellent reasons, such as this 2013 post-game scene ó ó has turned into a real-life haunted house
, where Seahawk seasons and careers end. Among other unfortunate events.Dissly has been a revelation. In a Brian Schottenheimer offense, the tight end is heavily featured. Now itís up to Nick Vannett to take up the much-targeted mantle of TE 1 until Ed Dickson returns, though return is the wrong word since heís never played a snap for Seattle.Through three games, Dissly had served as Russell Wilsonís most productive target besides Tyler Lockett, ranking second in yards and TDs with 151 and two scores. Heíd also won the starting job and validated the Seahawksí decision to use a fourth-round pick on a supposed blocking tight end.Without him, itís not clear what production the team will get out of its TE room. Itís not even clear who the room will feature a week or two from now. For as inconvenient as Doug Baldwinís injury and Brandon Marshallís numerous drops have been for the offense, losing Dissly might be the biggest setback of the year so far. Which wouldíve been a silly sentence to write a month ago, but NFL seasons have a way of doing their own thing.The decision to play for threeSchottenheimer and Pete Carroll teamed up with Wilson to get Seattle within striking range for a long game-winning field goal ó and it worked! It also didnít work against Atlanta or Arizona last year. Itís bad process, to play for three. The longer the kick, the worse the process.Itís baffling to me how the Seahawks coaches can watch a cautious strategy fail for them twice last year, then once for their opponent in this same game, and decide to put their eggs in the kickerís basket at the expense of their playmakers.The trend is worrisome. Carroll didnít wake up on Sunday and decide to play it safe at the end of the game. Itís his reflex now, after seeing it in action thrice in his last 13 games.These paragraphs arenít about how Sebastian Janikowski redeemed himself with a buzzer-beater after missing twice earlier in the afternoon. Itís really cool that he doesnít have to be the goat. Itís really cool that he made the kick, because a) that was the first winning kick as time expired in the Russell Wilson era, and b) winning is fun. Weíre talking here about how Carroll didnít trust his best players to take the chances that would have led to a better shot at winning. Seabass made it, but itís such bad process,Whatís even worse is that not five minutes earlier, heíd just seen the Cardinals employ the same strategy and fail miserably, costing Arizona a chance to win. With a first down at the Seattle 31 and 2:59 to play with, the Cardinals called three David Johnson runs and set up for a go-ahead 45-yarder. Phil Dawson pushed it wide right.I understand that Janikowski was acquired specifically for situations where a long kick makes sense. Big leg, blah blah blah. But when you have 2nd and 1, at the opponentís 43-yard line, with 1:06 left, you need to do better than:3-yard run up the middle6-yard pass in bounds0-yard run up the middlespikekickThe two Seahawks runs combined to remove 0.52 expected points off Seattleís drive. They also were a clear signal that no shots would be taken at the end zone
, or at the sidelines to increase the kickís percentage.Again, it is good that the field goal was successful. Iím just afraid the positive result will prompt Carroll to trust a negative process even more. And it doesnít appear too likely that a couple well-timed field goals will get the job done against the Los Angeles Rams this coming Sunday.Where the Seahawks rank in pressure rate on offense and defense In our handy dandy photo tool, you wonít find a ton of pictures of Quinton Jefferson, which is a bit unusual for a starting NFL defensive end. But not so unusual for a defensive end who has just six tackles and no sacks through three games. However, Jefferson gets a lot more done ďbehind the scenesĒ than heís given credit for on a normal box score.According to FootballOutsiders premium charting stats, Jefferson leads the Seattle Seahawks with five pressures this season, 1.5 more than Frank Clark, even though Clark does have three sacks. Jefferson usually doesnít play as many snaps as Clark does (though in Week 1, he led the defensive end group with 48 snaps to Clarkís 43), but heís a very regular member of the defensive line rotation. Itís a long way from being waived, as the former fifth round pick was a year ago, spending a brief amount of time with the LA Rams before returning last year, quietly winning the job opposite of Clark, and then recording a team-high four QB hits against Dak Prescott on Sunday.Heís no doubt helped Seattleís pass rush, which now ranks 16th in the NFL at 25.2%, per FootballOutsiders. (I would link to a full list, but itís behind a paywall.)The Seahawks are tied with the Carolina Panthers in that category, and are a step behind the LA Chargers at 15. The team apparently leading the way in pressure rate: the Dallas Cowboys. Though Seattleís defense was the star of the game, the Cowboys did sack Russell Wilson and hit him seven times. They have 11 sacks on the season and itís come from all angles, with nine players recording at least a piece of a sack. The Seahawks next test is Chandler Jones and the Arizona Cardinals, who rank third in pressure rate on defense.Neither the Seahawks nor the Cardinals have anything to brag about with the pressure rates allowed by their offensive lines, however.While Seattle is often described as having the worst pass protection in the league, they actually rank 27th in pressure rate allowed, per FO. Thatís bad
, but itís not the worst. There are five teams below them ó including the high-profile, high-paid unit in Dallas, and Arizona, a team that ranks 31st in pressure rate allowed at 38.5%.Only the Houston Texans are worse.The top two teams in the NFL are no surprise, with the Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders ranking first and second, while the surprise Miami Dolphins are third.For now, I think the Seahawksí protection is where it is, and while the unit hopefully improves as the season goes on (weíll see what the return of D.J. Fluker means in the long run, as well as the health and positional futures of Justin Britt, Joey Hunt, J.R. Sweezy, and Ethan Pocic), I donít expect Seattle to end the year ranking as the top offensive line in football. I donít think the Seahawks will lead the league in sacks either, but I think pressure rate on defense has a lot more potential.Depending on the progress of Rasheem Green, the health of Dion Jordan, the formula on how to use Barkevious Mingo, the potential breakout of Jarran Reed, and greater coverage by a secondary that seems to get better each week, maybe Seattle can finish in the top five there. It starts with guys like Clark, but Jefferson is doing his part too.
