    Nah they punished him for that fumbled snap from under center.

    We've all been a little fickle as fans at some point. ;)

    Off topic... but the fact that the NFL counts intentional spikes and kneel-downs in player and team stats is really stupid. Should be a separate category.

    And i never liked the spike as a "legalized intentional grounding" play to stop the clock. What a stupid contortion of the rules! Teams should just be able to line up and, from a legal formation, call a special timeout that costs a down instead of a standard timeout.

    This has been discussed, but one of my fav moments of growth was him chewing out his teammate and holding him accountable...Some are turned off by this but I loved it. Your qb needs to not just lead by example on the field but be a vocal leader as well. This never would have happened in year 1. Stay hungry Kyler.

    This is why I hate QBR!

    I'm all about Kyler now. Keep that dude healthy and he'll make a lot out of things. Not that DHop doesn't help, haha.

    By the rules of intentional grounding it technically wouldn't be because he would have an eligible receiver in the backfield with him. So it would be in the area of an eligible receiver.

    that moment and the huge SMILE on his face when he sees single coverage on the Nuk deep TD were things I loved. The above showed fire I hadn’t seen yet and the smile is just a pure love of the game moment.

    the great ones have to love the game. It’s what drives them to ultimately be great. Last season, I was a little nervous that Kyler wasn’t one of those guys... going down too easily, not turning back inside on runs to get extra yards, sliding too early or running out of bounds a yard shy of the first. NONE of that is happening this season. He obviously put a lot of work on his body to shake off arm tackles and he’s maximizing on big runs and lowering his shoulder enough to get what he needs to get.

    I’m also not worried that until last game he had been so inconsistent throwing mid-deep passes this year. Seeing the leap he’s made in his aggression and vision and speed running the ball shows me a guy who recognizes an area that can be improved on from the previous season. So I expect the same passing wise next offseason where he can really put it all together and possibly be unstoppable.

    hell, maybe that happens over the second half of the season. All I know is we got a superstar in the making behind center. Only question is how high that star is going to rise.

    if he’s really driven, sky’s the limit.

    I really don't blame the TEs here so much as it seemed Seattle had the play sniffed out before it was even ran.

    That's certainly not necessarily true - though i believe teams used to do this with an RB or TE before the special rule was adopted:
    Just seems to me that making an exception to the intentional grounding rule, and counting the spike play as a "real" play in the stats, is a silly way of, effectively, allowing a team to trade a down for a clock stoppage.

    Well, let me be the first to complain that he should have had 50. :)

    Cheese, I STILL complain that he slides too early for FWIW. :)

    But he's keeping himself health and that's what counts.

    play sniffed out or not, B Wags went right by two of our TEs and neither of them touched him.

    It's not like Seattle put 3 players over our two blockers and just beat us with numbers. Awful execution on the TEs part and Im glad Kyler yelled at them... Cant wait for Max to be back!
