Posts tagged Isaiah Stanback
Last week C+
Sidney was running his routes well and had sharp cuts getting good separation from the defender. He was an active blocker for teammates on the wide receiver screen, screen, and running plays. Twice he had very nice chop blocks.
On one play he was running a come back route but was a little lazy at the top of the route and instead of driving back towards the ball he was moving slow which allowed the defender to come up and knock it out of his hands.
2) Ben Obomanu (B)
This was his first action of the preseason.
Ben was running good routes and was also able to find the soft spots in the zone. He showed some moves getting enough Yards After Catch (YAC) to pick up the first down. Obomanu also did a nice job crashing down on the line to block in the running game.
When he caught the screen pass he had the outside open for big yardage but chose instead to cut it inside where defenders were waiting.
3) Mike Williams (B-)
Last week C
He was blocking down field in the running game, running good routes and used his big body to shield the defender from the ball on a slant route where he was well covered.
He fell down on a comeback route that would have led to a first down.
4) Doug Baldwin and Isaiah Stanback (C+)
Last week Doug Baldwin B+ and Isaiah C
Doug had a 105 yard kick return for a touchdown. Isaiah had a big hit on the punt returner after he muffed the punt ensuring that the returner would have no chance to recover the ball.
Baldwin fair caught a punt when he had more then enough room to make something happen. Stanback did not see much action during the game.
6) Kris Durham (C)
Last week he led all receivers with an A
7) Pat Williams and Ricardo Lockette (C-)
Last week Pat D- and Ricardo C
Neither player had any above average plays but neither was in very much either.
Pat got called for holding on a punt return and Ricardo was off sides on a kickoff.
1) Dominique Byrd (B-)
Last week C
He was able to get wide open in the back of the end zone and caught the pass for a touchdown.
That is the only time he was targeted in the game.
Last week C-. Worth noting is that he was not targeted during the game.
3) Anthony McCoy (C-)
Last week he led the position with a A-
He made a defender look silly when he leaped over him because the defender put his head down.
Was unable to seal the edge in the running game and Gallery had to help him and then Anthony tried to get to the 2nd level but was unable to quickly enough to make a difference. He also gave up a sack to Von Miller.
I apologize that these are coming out a little slower this week. The short week and being under the weather has slowed me down but I will get them all up before the game tomorrow.
Don’t forget to follow us on twitter @NWProSports if we reach 1200 followers by the season opener we will give away a Seahawks Jersey.
Part 5 of 8 of the Seahawks player grades from the Chargers game. Quarterbacks, Offensive Linemen, Running Backs and Tight Ends have already been posted. This is a series that will go position by position, player by player evaluating the single game performance of the players on the Seahawks roster.
We saw the return of Mike Williams and the Seahawks debut of Sidney Rice and Kris Durham. Ben Obomanu remains out but should make his debut this week in Denver.
1) Kris Durham (A)
Kris is a rookie 4th round draft choice out of Georgia.
As you can see from the picture to the right Durham is a competent blocker. This wasn’t the only time he had a nice block in the game. On the end around by Baldwin he had no trouble blocking the corner down the field. As a receiver he was able to find the soft spot under the coverage and found a way to get open in the end zone. Kris made Charlie Whitehurst look good on a play where he came back toward him and dove for an under thrown ball catching it as he went to the ground. Durham was able to use his body to shield the defender from a ball and had the concentration to make the catch with the corner draped all over him.
I don’t have anything from last week to compare it to.
Last week he led all receivers with a B.
As a kick returner he saw his hole and went for it aggresively. He was a willing participant as a run blocker. Speaking of running he had a nice end around showcasing his speed. He caught the ball with his hands and once secured turned up the field trying to get some YAC (Yards after Catch) yards.
If you are Deon Butler, Ricardo Lockette or Pat Williams and he continues playing this well your probably going to be released.
Something I had noticed watching games from his Vikings days was that he is always participating in the running with his blocking and saturday was no exception. When he caught the ball with two defenders around him he was still able to turn and dive between them to pick up extra yardage and avoid a big hit.
Tarvaris seemed to be trying to force the ball to him and out of 6 targets he only caught 2.
4) Mike Williams, Isaiah Stanback, Chris Carter and Ricardo Lockette (C)
Pat will not be on the final roster.
Golden took the opening kickoff 6 yards deep in the end zone and hesitated on the return. The result was an opening drive that started at the 11. He cut a 3rd down route short of the 1st down marker giving himself no chance to get the first down. Tate had trouble catching the ball having two drops including one that was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. Pat hesitated at the top of a route, I’m not sure if he lost focus or forgot what the route was but he seemed lost. He fell down on one route and the ball was almost intercepted. Later he dropped the ball in the picture above.
