CJ finished his unforgettable campaign with 2,006 yards via his 36-carry, 134-yard/2 TD performance in today’s Titan 17-13 victory over the Seahawks.

I thought I’d take a final look at the Seahawks defense before today’s Tennessee Titans – Seattle Seahawks game and in particular, compare some of their stats with Chris Johnson’s.

First, the Seahawks have, by most measurements, an average, or slightly above average rushing defense. Seattle is 14th against the run in yards per game and in a tie for 15th in yards per carry.

Also, as Vince Verhei noted in this week’s question and answer session with Drexel, Seattle is 13th in run defense DVOA, slightly above average.

The Seahawks didn’t fare too well last week in Green Bay. The Packers rushed 32 times for 153 yards (4.8 avg) and 5 TDs. It should be noted Green Bay has a good run team, rushing for 4.4 ypc, which is in a tie for eighth in the league. (more…)

Titans/Seahawks Q&A with Vince Verhei

January 2, 2010

In preparation for tomorrow’s season-ender between the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks, I exchanged emails with Seahawks aficionado Vince Verhei.

In addition to his Seattle allegiance, Vince authored the Seahawks’ team chapter in Football Outsiders Almanac 2009 while also contributing a weekly column to ESPN Insider regarding each week’s biggest upset.

Tennessee Titans at Seattle Seahawks preview

December 30, 2009

The Seattle Seahawks, who will host the Tennessee Titans this week, are not a good team. They’re now a team with a 5-10 record on a three-game losing streak.

If not for a very weak schedule, the Seahawks could easily be 2-13 right now. Two of their wins came against the cellar dwellers in their division, the St. Louis Rams. Titans fans saw how bad the Lambs were in Week Fourteen, in a 47-7 mismatch.

Another Seahawk win was against the 2-13 Detroit Lions. Hey, somebody had to win that game and fortune smiled on the home team that day. Fortune did not smile on the homestanding Seahawks two weeks ago, as they were upset by the then 1-12 Bucs. (more…)

Titans/Seahawks Q&A exchange

December 28, 2009

Next weekend, the Tennessee Titans (7-8) will conclude their topsy-turvy 2009 campaign with a visit to the Emerald City to face the Seattle Seahawks (5-10).

As usual, we’ll be conducting a question/answer exchange with a blogger/writer who muses about the Titans’ upcoming opponent.
