Seahawks photo blog: 49ers get humiliated

49ers at Seahawks photo blog

All I wanted for Christmas was a Seahawks victory, what I got was a 49ers butt whoopin’!

Zach Miller could be preparing for life after football. Seen here practicing his tight rope walking. Could he be a long lost cousin of the “Flying Wallendas?”

This was one of Colin Kaepernick’s better moments in Seattle. He looked dazed, sick and confused the entire game.

Chris Clemons chases down Colin Kaepernick from behind.

Marshawn Lynch was about to score a touchdown, Sidney Rice had the best seat in the house.

Steven Hauschka made sure he punished the 49ers when he had the chance.

Kam Chancellor forced a Frank Gore fumble, somehow the Seahawks didn’t come up with the ball.

It is no wonder Sidney Rice almost threw an interception on this play. His toes are pointed almost directly at me, not even close to his intended target.

Leon Washington was not the shortest person on the field Sunday.

Jermaine Kearse drags his right foot in bounds to make a big 3rd down reception late in the game.

Zach Miller snaps his head around to find the defender after making a reception.

Seahawks player grades vs Titans: Receivers/Tight ends

Seahawks pass catchin’ player grades


This is the final part of my Seahawks player grades for week one of the preseason.  The grades for QB, RB, OL, DL, LB and DB’s have already been completed earlier in the week.

Wide Receiver

Charly Martin #14

Charly Martin really impressed me against the Titans. Every opportunity Charly  was given he made the most of. If Martin had a chance to go for YAC (yards after catch) yards he went for them without hesitation. He showed decent rout running ability and never gave up on plays until the whistle blew. The most impressive play was on Russell Wilson quarterback keeper late in the 4th quarter. Charly locked on the his man and blocked him for over ten yards down the field. That action allowed Russell to get by and score the touchdown that sealed the Seahawks victory.

the grade: B+


Deon Butler #11

Honestly, I am surprised we are still talking about this kid after his brutal injury a couple years back.  He continues to impress. Deon Butler was running very good routes against the Titans and was able to get some separation. He also showed a willingness to get in and throw some blocks in the running game.

the grade: B

Braylon Edwards #17

the good:

Braylon Edwards made an outstanding play on a ball while it was in the air. Russell Wilson threw the pass up and gave Braylon a chance to go get it. Braylon delivered by stoping just short of the pass, out jumping the cornerback to go up and get it, while scoring a touchdown in the process. Plays like that are the ones I expect to see from him, spectacular receptions. Later in the game Edwards made a nice cut inside after catching the ball and gained about 5 extra yards in the process.

the bad:

Braylon Edwards needs to play smarter. The block in the back penalty that he picked up was pure stupidity.  Russell Wilson had already given up on the play and was running out of bounds after a nice pickup so, there was no need to even attempt to block at that point. That is the kind of play I would expect to see from a rookie not an 8 year NFL veteran.

the grade B-


Lavasier Tuinei #19

The rookie undrafted free agent out of Oregon had a very solid game as far as blocking from the receiver position goes. Lavasier Tuinei never caught a pass during the game, but his blocking was solid enough to earn him a good grade.

the grade: B-


Ben Obomanu #87

The Good:

Ben Obomanu had a better than average game blocking.

the bad:

Ben missed a block that led to a tackle for a loss. He flinched at the line of scrimmage on one play but, luckily for the Seahawks the false start was never called. I also need to see him start creating more separation at this point in his career.

the grade: C+


Jermaine Kearse #8

Jermaine Kearse really does a nice job fighting to get open once the quarterback starts to scramble. He recognizes the field gets cut in half and tries to become an outlet if he is on that side of the field, or hurries to break towards that side. Kearse showed great awareness by a young receiver.

the grade: C+


Golden Tate #81 and Kris Durham #16 both received C’s


Tight end

Zach Miller #86

Despite having a couple of missed blocks during the game Zach Miller did a nice job blocking in general throughout his time in the game. Unfortunately, his time was cut short when he took a shot over the middle and was concussed. Zach was able to hang on to the pass after the big hit.

the grade: b+

Anthony Mccoy #85

Anthony has to clean up the dropped passes because he is driving me nuts.  McCoy had a better than average day blocking. He was doing a nice job fighting to get open while running routes. Against the Titans he had a chance for a first down and had difficulty hanging on to a pass that hit him in the hands.

the grade: C+


Sean McGrath #45

Personally, I would keep this kid over Anthony McCoy.  I believe Sean McGrath has a much higher ceiling. He made some very good plays in the blocker game and a couple really nice reception. Unfortunately, he also made the mental mistakes that I expect a rookie to make and blew a couple plays.

the grade: C+


Cameron Morrah #88

Am I the only one who is tired of waiting for this kid to develop? With 4 years experience, we shouldn’t have to wait any longer. On Saturday I watched him run the wrong route. At that point, I felt the Morrah experiment was over. Commissioner help us if he ends up with a final roster spot on this years team.

the grade: F
