http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/bradley-mcdougald-jersey-authentic , three weeks. Three weeks and three days exactly, to the season opener against the Broncos.Will Disslyís setting franchise TE records. Shaquem Griffinís starting at linebacker. Rasheem Greenís fresh off a preseason of pressuring and sacking fool quarterbacks, and Rashaad Penny has just begun teaming up with Chris Carson to form a two-headed rushing attack quite different than recent versions of the team.Michael Dickson spends the afternoon impressing, with two punts that land within six yards of the end zone. Two! Itís September 10, 2018, and the future of the Seattle Seahawksí recent draft class is bright. Itís blinding, even. Although Seattle will depart Denver with a defeat, thereís much reason to hope. Itís only been a preseason and a single game, but there are scant reasons to doubt that John Schneider and his scouts have #DoneItAgain.Fast-present to... the present, and the tune has changed. With the caveat that itís far, far too soon to judge the 2018 draft class entirely, there are far-reaching consequences to all the things that have gone wrong regarding their health and development. If the franchise wants to return to postseason glory, and /checks texts from V-Mac/ they do, cheap good labor will be necessary. Physical setbacks just push eventual title contention farther and farther into the future. The HurtDisslyWas second on the team in receiving yards and touchdowns through three weeks, then of course tore his patella tendon in Glendale, Arizona, graveyard of Seahawks. Now on injured reserve, facing a rehab process that is often estimated at one year.GreenMissed Week 4 Womens Jarran Reed Jersey , and Week 5 is in doubt. Has four tackles and no sacks in 102 defensive snaps. Is not a factor on the field, yet, even when healthy. Given how cryptic or misleading Seattle is officially about the severity of any injury, itís hard to tell when heíll return. Jamarco JonesOn IR too, this after pushing Germain Ifedi in the preseason for the starting RT job. Many speculated he could start immediately, or later in the year. Instead, heíll sit out and try again in 2019.The Holding PatternPennyFinally, in Week 4, Penny began to look like the running back advertised to us in May. Or the one you were familiar with if you watched San Diego State football. 49 yards on nine attempts; he was decisive, quick to cut, hard to bring down, and useful.Those descriptors would not fit his first three games with the Seahawks. A line of 20-43-0 has a way of making a rookie look like a questionable pick. But guys develop. They actually get better with time, often. Itís quite unfair to judge him on his first three pro games. So, holding pattern it is.Griffin To be perfectly frank, Griffin has been more hype than results so far. Again, itís been four games. Again, heíll progress. But the coaches certainly havenít seen enough from him to reward him with extensive playing time since the opener against the Broncos.Austin Calitro and Mychal Kendricks (acquired after Griffinís first game) have been complementing Bobby Wagner in the linebacker corps since. Griffin has not. Heís still making plays on special teams. This is a frickiní awesome open-field tackle.But heís not playing defense right now. Letís see what happens now that Kendricks is suspended indefinitely for his definitely-way-worse-than-domestic-violence* offense.* free editorializingJacob MartinThe defensive end, Seattleís sixth-round selection Youth Shaquem Griffin Jersey , has been active and inactive on game days, and he managed to stick to the 53, which is good. Hasnít made any impact though ó just one tackle. Itís pretty hard to say how he fits in right now other than the last line of depth. Again, wait and see.The Practice SquadderAlex McGoughNot much shame in a seventh-rounder failing to beat out a veteran such as Brett Hundley for the backup QB job. But McGough also wonít get much time on the field in 2018 now, unless another devastating turn of events materializes. In a sign that the Seahawks arenít completely committed to him in the near future, or someoneís secretly hurt, they brought in Paxton Lynch for a tryout on Monday.The Good!Still-bright spots exist.Tre FlowersThe starting cornerback is part of a pass defense that looks good, maybe very good. Theyíve allowed as many touchdowns as theyíve garnered interceptions (seven) and their yards/attempt against is 4th best in the league. If Flowers is a weakness in the scheme, one opposing quarterbacks ought to exploit, they havenít done so yet, at least not well enough for it to matter. Flowers gets his hands on the ball regularly, with two passes defensed, and he... rose to the occasion Week 4 with this gorgeous forced fumble.DicksonAlthough heís cooled off substantially from his Denver exploits, Dickson remains an upgrade at punter (look Jon, I didnít want to say it out loud, but objectivity got the better of me). His potential to cause turnovers and confound special teams with drop kicks and floaters has not been fully tapped. Anticipating more of that as the weather intensifies. Also he appears to be an adequate holder, which doesnít hurt. Until this article jinxes him. Why any of this matters All of the setbacks, be they physical or playing time-related Womens Barkevious Mingo Jersey , have an effect on 2018 and 2019. Right now, players such as Green, Griffin and Jones are missing out on reps they canít get in practice, or in the offseason. Thereís no substitute for live action.Impacting even further the situation is Earl Thomasí injury ó had he been traded, the 2019 draft would be bolstered. Had he stayed healthy and walked, a compensatory pick could reasonably be expected. Now Seattle will get neither the benefit of Thomasí presence on game day, nor the 2019/2020 assets, nor sufficient knowledge about their 2018 picks, all of which would be helpful in completing their rise back to the top of the division mountain. What initially looked like a banner year of new exciting talent is quickly turning sour. Hopefully the other shoe has already dropped and Week 5 marks a turning point toward more health and production from the new Seahawks, not even less of each.Kicker Consideration: Sifting through potential replacements for Sebastian Janikowski During Week 1 against the Broncos in Denver the special teams play was quite the mixed bag. While Michael Dickson continued his MVPunter campaign in fairly convincing fashion, Sebastian Janikowski struggled on back-to-back field goal attempts from 51 and 46 yards respectively. I am not exactly the biggest Janikowski fan, if you follow me on Twitterówhich to be clear is a terrible ideaóyou have seen me rant loudly about signing a 40-year-old kicker who didnít play last year coming off a back injury multiple times. Two missed kicks from beyond 45 yards is way too early to start freaking out and planning his replacement, but for a kicker whose career field goal percentage is lower than that of Blair Walsh, Iím going to start anyways.Obvious but expensiveDan Bailey has been mentioned repeatedly as an option for the Seattle Seahawks should they want to upgrade at the position and secure the second most accurate kicker in NFL history. But, Bailey reportedly has four offers and could be looking to get as close as possible to his pre-cut $3.4 million dollar Dallas Cowboys salary. According to Over the Cap Seattle is sitting at just over $5 million in cap space, a $3 million dollar kicker effectively empties the tank on acquiring any other free agents or players via trade that require extra money. Donít get me wrong, I would love for Bailey to come to the Seahawks. I just donít think itís going to happen because of the money. Steven Hauschka was cut over a cap hit that was one million dollars less than what Bailey is likely to command.Other optionsOf course the organization could just gut it out and look to move on from Janikowski in the offseason, which seems most likely given how Walsh was handled. But if the organization wanted to kick some tires Womens Nick Vannett Jersey , who is out there?Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty ImagesKai Forbath: Former kicker for the Minnesota Vikings. Struggled the last two years with PATs. Heís 47-of-53 on field goals over the last two years, including 7-of-10 from beyond 50 yards.Matt McCrane: UDFA brought in this offseason by the Arizona Cardinals to compete with Phil Dawson. Cut by the organization during preseason despite not missing a kick. However, his sample size is very low at the pro level. College stats are good, but not great: 81% on field goals and 3-of-6 from beyond 50 yards would effectively make him a league average kicker if he directly translated. His cap hit, however, would be very low.Denny Medley-USA TODAY SportsCairo Santos: Cut from the Jets after healing from a groin injury, currently unsigned. Heís a career 84% on field goals, but struggles a bit at long range posting a 64% at ranges beyond 50 yards. However, this is another kicker Seattle would likely be able to sign for under $1 million in cap space, as his last two contracts were in the $600k range.Both non-Bailey pro options listed above have career numbers better than Janikowski, but cutting and replacing the special teams captain would likely have an effect beyond just the numbers, even if he hasnít been with the team long. Additionally, youíd be asking Dickson to switch his holds a few weeks into the season. All of this culminates into a situation where it seems likely the Seahawks wonít go searching for replacements. Is it way too early to start panicking about the kicker position? Probably, but with the wounds of Walsh still open, perhaps youíll forgive a little unnecessary indulgence.
