The Seahawks have their bye-week work cut out for them.
During the two practices this week and the bonus workout next Monday, the team will get to hunker down and clean up their offensive and defensive schemes, while also pouring great effort into evaluating their players without the constraints of a game plan to focus on. The development of young players will also be a key part of the week’s aims as the coaches concentrate on finding out “what can we do, not what we can’t do,” Coach Pete Carroll said.
The break arrives at an ideal point in the season, with the Seahawks 2-2 and tied for the division lead, yet still leaving much to be desired.
“There’s a long season ahead of us,” Carroll said. “We’re still getting better. We’re not close to being as good as we’re going to be.”
