Parry goes on injured reserve

The Seahawks placed FB Josh Parry on injured reserve today, making room for the addition of TE Bennie Joppru to the 53-man roster. Meant to mention that in our initial report on Joppru’s signing, but Parry has been out so long, the move lost its impact. Joppru is wearing No. 47 (apparently unretired following its use by Lance Laury). But you knew that because you already downloaded our 33-category roster.

Drops, turnovers and a victory

Our updated Season Log shows drops and turnovers are back on the rise. I counted five dropped passes Monday night, not counting one wiped out by penalty. I’ll watch the video to double-check those when time permits, but for now we’ll just make the season log available and call it a night.

Red-zone defense on the rise

The Seahawks are now 25th in total offense (16th rush, 20th pass) and 19th in total defense (17th rush, 19th pass). Seattle ranks ninth in red-zone offense (.542) and 20th in red-zone defense. The red-zone defense has risen from 31st to 26th to 20th in recent weeks. That is a good sign for Seattle (and also a reflection of playing the 49ers). It’s obvious Seattle does not have a dominant defense. But if the offense comes around and the defense plays its best in the red zone, Seattle can win games (and even playoff games, probably depending on venue). That

Two players, eight false starts

Our updated 2005-2006 Season Log shows quite a few things. A couple jump out: Seattle’s offensive line is on pace for 16 false-start penalties, double its total from last season. Tom Ashworth and Chris Spencer have four false starts apiece even though (or perhaps because) they have not been in the lineup every week. I’ve found a few other statistical nuggets in there, one of which will probably play itself into a story. Also: Our big-picture breakdown compares 2006 stats against 2000-2005 stats on both sides of the ball, with

Where they stand

The Seahawks are 22nd in total offense (14th rush, 21st pass) and 18th in total defense (13th rush, 22nd pass). Seattle has inched up to 26th in red-zone defense. Seattle’s defense leads the league in sacks per pass attempt (.111 … thank you, Raiders). Seattle’s offense ranks 29th in sacks per pass attempt allowed (.112). Sortable league-wide rankings are here.

False-start penalties nearly double

Just a heads up: Our latest roster and Season Log are available. The log shows a few interesting things: Seattle has already matched its 2005 full-season total for dropped passes (22), according to me; the Hawks are on pace for 34 false-start penalties, up from 18 last season; the offensive line is on pace for 18 false starts, 10 more than last season; the offensive line is on pace for five fewer holding penalties (19 last season, seven so far this season); and the special teams are on pace for 22 penalties, same as last season. False-start penalties
