Quick bits before practice

Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman again had their press conferences on Thursday before practice. Wilson agrees with Carroll that he’s not entirely happy with the offensive performance and used some of the same descriptions. Penalties and occasional miscues are killing their efficiency. Wilson said they’ve been getting too far off schedule and forced into third-and-longs. He says improvement will be a matter of better focus each play. He reminded that Jacksonville is also an NFL team and each game provides a championship opportunity. The Gus Bradley defense of the Jags looks a lot like the Seattle scheme, he said, but they sit back in more Cover 2 than the Seahawks do now.

Sherman was typically amusing. Asked about so many of the Hawks’ interceptions being off tipped balls, he said when the ball is in the air: “It’s like throwin’ meat to wolves.” Asked about a purported Colin Kaepernick quote that the Seahawks didn’t really take much away from the Niners, Sherman pointed out that they took away three interceptions and a 29-3 win.

I asked Max Unger in the locker room about the inefficient offense, he said it’s a surprise since they had so many starters back. He cited the Panthers and 49ers as having two really good front-7s, but that’s not an excuse.

For entertainment purposes: Greg Scruggs, still rehabbing a knee, did some interviews with Breno Giacomini, busting him for for his “unibrow.” Scruggs asked if he shaved the gap between his brows every week, Breno said “every hour.” Scruggs told him that fans have been writing him to say that Breno looks like Bert on Sesame Street. Breno thanked him for the Halloween costume idea.

Turnover Thursday practice coming up. Dan Quinn interviews afterward

    The Real Scruggs report??

    LMAO – Scruggs and Breno. Good stuff.

    Dave, Eric hinted that Max’s subpar performance this year smells like he might not be completely healthy. Is there any merit to that theory, and are you aware of anything?

    Hello Dave,
    What do we do about the Seahawks insider pick’em that Eric was running here?

    I believe the penalties is part of it(offensive struggles), but I also believe with the lack of contact in practices(new cba rules), that the zone blocking concept needs time to come around and guys putting themselves in great position to cut block! I doubt the coaches let them cut their own team in practice. Around week 6 should be enough time hopefully!

    Thanks SandpointHawk!

    I don’t know about the pick ‘em, I’ll ask

    If Breno dresses up as Bert, does that make Luke Willson the Ernie?
    I think whoever is QB’ing the Jags will be tossing out a lot of meat!
