Attributing Seattle’s poor offensive performance solely on the performance of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson would be unfair.
The Seahawks have the worst offense in the NFL, gathering only 254 yards per game. A big part of the blame has to go to the team’s offensive line.
Center Max Unger and his fellow linemates have already allowed 14 sacks for a loss of 100 yards. In addition, the numerous offside and holding calls make it even more difficult for the offense to get into some sort of rhythm.
The O-line also struggles creating holes for running back Marshawn Lynch. The team has the second-worst rushing offense in the whole league (67.5 yards per game).
Seattle’s offensive line has been unable to provide any protection for Jackson and close to zero forward push that would make Lynch’s job easier.
Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable has to come up with quick solutions because otherwise 2011 could turn into a debacle.
