    So .. our season is over.

    We have the 21st pick.

    We have some people who's contracts just expired.

    We have Russ going into his last year .

    We have some holes to plug and upgrades to make.

    If we want to make 2019 a bigger success, what are your preferred moves to make?

    I don't think they actually ran it as much as people think on first downs. It's just that the first 3 possessions they had no first downs so it's skewed the perception. Go watch first downs.. it was 50/50.

    The onside kick was not great but there aren't a lot of options. Probably need another tweet to the rules . Not gonna harsh on Dickson.

    Defense has to take responsibility. The fade TD reception.. a CB with ball awareness picks that off. After Earl went out we had very few interceptions this season. Gave up a season high in rushing yards. 1 sack against Dak.. with the Cowboys using a back up guard.

    Regarding the drop kicks I wonder if there is an angle thing Pete is worried about.

    All season we hear Dickson would try a drop kick.. and in warm ups he does them.. but Carroll just couldnt make himself try one.

    The world is outraged at so many running plays. I was ok with that, but I thought more variety of running plays would have benefited things.
    But really..go after coordinators and play calls is kind of going after low hanging fruit, isnt it? Those plays worked all season and to a degree against the Dallas Cowboys. Gotta win your matchup. Gotta move your guy. I suspect Sweezy shouldnt have played. Admirable for fighting through everything and coming back from what is usually a month long injury..but if he couldnt move his guy because of it.. well.. I would have like to have seen more read option early.

    But the defense wasnt all that awesome and doesnt get a complete pass. We had a lead. Then the defense committed 2 PIs (one of of which is debatable) then gives up a 3rd and 14 QB draw when Wagner misses just his second tackle of the season...

    For me there wasnt one thing... just didnt have their A game.

    Its a bummer..I thought that the combo of FS McD and SS Hill had surpassed FS T2 and SS McD by the end of the season. In TC and early season I thought the opposite but Hill might be the type that just needed real playing time.

    Oh well...

    About to watch this again. During the first half I was distracted by work..
    Man the play calling in the second half was aggressive. What a game..

    Excellent compilation! Thank you!

    Chief fans getting nervous.

    Wilson finally getting MVP hype.. he will probably get a few votes for it and somehow wasnt even voted into the pro bowl...

    So your argument is there is no one in the NFL worth spending any money on except Russel Wilson...? That giant contracts DONT actually affect your ability to pay other people...?
