Seahawks offense rolling again in building 21-0 lead over Bears


The Seattle Seahawks first-team offense scored on each of their first four possessions in building a 24-0 lead last week against the San Diego Chargers.

The offense hasn’t slowed down at all this week against the Chicago Bears either.

Seattle scored touchdowns on each of their first three possessions in the first quarter of Friday night’s preseason game against the Bears.

Marshawn Lynch carries three times for 16 yards on the opening drive and scored a 7-yard touchdown to give Seattle a 7-0 lead. The one drive was all Seattle needed to see from their starting workhorse back as he took to the bench after the opening series.

Russell Wilson then led Seattle on a 14-play, 89-yard scoring drive with Wilson scrambling for a 7-yard score to give the Seahawks a 14-0 lead after the first quarter.

The Seahawks scored again on their third possession of the game. Wilson connected with Jermaine Kearse for a 12-yard touchdown to cap an 11-play, 83-yard drive to give the Seahawks a 21-0 lead.

Seattle has now scored on seven straight possessions with their first-team offense dating back to last week’s game against the Chargers. Six of those possessions have ended with touchdowns.

The Seahawks defense is still expected to be one of the league’s top units. If Seattle’s offense can play like this during the regular season too, they could be a nightmare for the rest of the league.

    We are better then last year. But our schedule is tougher

    Seahawks had their last year… this year it’s the Broncos year

    Yikes, this team is no joke. Too bad the season opener will set the tone for the Packers season.

  5. mkelly534 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:15 PM

    I have high hopes for Russell Wilson this season but it is still pre season now. Defenses are not showing all their wrinkles and not game planning as much.

  6. greej1938l says: Aug 22, 2014 11:16 PM

    They already are a nightmare

  7. number1hawkfan says: Aug 22, 2014 11:17 PM

    They could be a nightmare?? The will be a nightmare!!! Russell Wilson gets better every game.

    Now 28-0 beatdown currently in progress

  12. KIR says: Aug 22, 2014 11:21 PM

    Rusell Wilson is one of the BEST Quarterbacks in the NFL (period). He doesn’t make mistakes and he’s a Big Time PLAYMAKER.

    Who’s better? Brady, Manning (regular season), Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger, Brees. Considering Wilson’s age, I wouldn’t trade Wilson for any of them except Rodgers.

  13. kkalama1 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:25 PM

    Lets go Seahawks!! Im done talking trash with all you fans of other teams. I believe in JS and PC, the seahawks are tough

  14. kidsamoa260 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:35 PM

    Bears 1st and goal from the half yard line and don’t get in. Haha.

  15. KIR says: Aug 22, 2014 11:37 PM

    Cutler still sucks when under pressure, things aren’t going good and in Big Games. $126.7 million, $54 million guaranteed, Really?

  16. arianil985 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:39 PM

    I knew the Bears defense was bad, I didn’t know they were “Viking” bad though!!!!

  17. hyzers says: Aug 22, 2014 11:40 PM

    It doesn’t count it’s against the Bears D. They aren’t very good at bearing down.

  18. “I impacted the game and as an official you never want to do that," Bill Leavy said in reference to Super Bowl XL. "It left me with a lot of sleepless nights and I think about it constantly. I’ll go to my grave wishing that I’d been better.” says: Aug 22, 2014 11:40 PM

    And Bill Leavy is officiating this game.

    Go Hawks!

  21. edavidberg says: Aug 22, 2014 11:43 PM

    (1) Decammillis and Tucker are incompetent.
    (2) Jerry Angelo left a defense that essentially needed to be completely rebuilt. And he’s only been able fix the d line.
    (3) The Bears linebackers are bad.
    (4) The official that called that phantom pass interference should be fined and drug tested.

  22. bassnw says: Aug 22, 2014 11:43 PM

    31-0 at halftime. 1 Penalty.

  23. shawkfan51 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:43 PM

    And for the record: as of halftime in game three, Seattle’s starting secondary has ZERO illegal contact or defensive holding calls this preseason. And have given up 7 points total. Maybe they aren’t cheaters but are just that good?

  24. hawksfan10 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:43 PM

    Go Hawks!

  25. trollhammer20 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:44 PM

    As far as dress rehearsals go, you can’t really do better than 31-0 at halftime.

    The offense is going to be fun to watch. Just have to keep continuity on the O-line, and keep Percy on the field. If Harvin is healthy, this offense is explosive.

  26. vancouversportsbro says: Aug 22, 2014 11:50 PM

    It’s preseason but these guys are playing like champions again. Last preseason they were 4-0 and they won the superbowl. This preseason once again they look dominant. Unlike the chumps in Santa Clara. Hahahaha

  27. thebirdofprey2 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:50 PM

    Seattle is playing some exciting football on both sides of the ball. Russell Wilson looks in complete control of the offense.

    Percy Harvin has such an effect on the game when he is out there. Beast Mode 3 carries and looked completely “about that action”

  28. firstlisten62 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:51 PM

    31-0, to start the 2nd half 😉
    Just like Richard Sherman’s Campbell soup commercial, the Seattle Seahawks look mmmmm good!!!

  29. gilby49 says: Aug 22, 2014 11:51 PM

    Who cares it’s Preseason!!!

  30. packfaninchitown says: Aug 22, 2014 11:52 PM

    Bear down… 🙂

  31. axespray says: Aug 22, 2014 11:59 PM

    Bear’s fans like to call the Packers “soft”.

    If soft is actually putting up a fight against one of those NFC West Powerhouses – then what does that make the Quit-lers?

  32. garyridgway says: Aug 23, 2014 12:04 AM

    Theirs the Seattle seahawks and their is everyone else

  33. mrplow3 says: Aug 23, 2014 12:18 AM

    I could see Wilson having a break out year. He looks more than ready.

  34. dalcow4 says: Aug 23, 2014 12:18 AM

    As expected– people are jumping on the Seawagon as fast as possible.

    Playing “preseason = regular season” is a game for fools. I can’t see that offense doing much this year as Russell Wilson’s limitations are further exposed. and the defense will be very, very good but not great because they will get called on all the holding they do.

    Add that up with a more lax attitude and we are looking at 10-6 or even 9-7.

    And without home field– no way this team goes to the Super Bowl.

  35. dirtysanchez619 says: Aug 23, 2014 12:19 AM

    So much for those big bears receivers manhandling the legion of boom LOL

  36. kerzondax says: Aug 23, 2014 12:22 AM

    So opening game vs the Pack … the over/under will be 100?

  37. KIR says: Aug 23, 2014 12:41 AM

    The Bears are soft and the defense is horrible. I see a 6-10 team. “shrugs”

  38. jason9696 says: Aug 23, 2014 12:51 AM

    If the Seahawks offense starts to match their defense. Who exactly is going to beat them?

  39. skoobyfl says: Aug 23, 2014 1:01 AM

    To prove a point.

  40. bleedburgandyandgold says: Aug 23, 2014 1:09 AM

    They are looking good

  41. largent80100 says: Aug 23, 2014 1:26 AM

    I don’t brag about preseason, but people told me that the Bears WRs would burn our secondary.

    Well, there was no penalties today and no score too.

  42. largent80100 says: Aug 23, 2014 1:31 AM

    By the way, trade Clausen to Cleveland, Chicago!

    He would start there.

  43. mediasloppy says: Aug 23, 2014 1:33 AM

    Jared Allen might be asking himself if made the right choice.

  44. hawkstradamus says: Aug 23, 2014 1:39 AM

    We are already 8-0.

  45. number1hawkfan says: Aug 23, 2014 1:43 AM

    There’s not much to say anymore. Niner fans have nothing on us. They just have to take it. And don’t give me your dusty twenty year old trophy nonsense either. Today there’s no debate that the hawks are just beginning and the niners are watching their window slam shut.

  46. deathonwings410 says: Aug 23, 2014 2:22 AM

    Seattle will return to the SB. Not sure if they’ll win but it looks like they picked up right where they left off while SF looks very off. And they are their only real challenger in the conference.

  47. orivar says: Aug 23, 2014 2:36 AM

    It is just preseason and defenses don’t game plan as much, which I believe is stupid tbh however it does show that their offense has complete chemistry.

  48. veence69 says: Aug 23, 2014 2:43 AM

    The bottoming out of this team is going to be spectacular. Especially when the “12th Man” becomes disenfranchised again and stops showing up like the fair weather fans they are.

  49. veence69 says: Aug 23, 2014 2:44 AM

    Gino Terretta looked like a HOF’er in preseason too..

  50. restorativejusticeprogram says: Aug 23, 2014 2:58 AM

    This beating will only help the Bears going forward.

    p.s. — The huuuuge commitment to Jay was unnecessary and may prove a mistake.

  51. bert1913 says: Aug 23, 2014 3:09 AM

    i can’t wait for santa clara, it’s gonna be a beat down

  52. brend0 says: Aug 23, 2014 3:14 AM

    Bears got hosed on the offensive PI, but still would’ve only been 28-7. If Hawks O is now as good as their D, look out.

  53. 12hawksfan1976 says: Aug 23, 2014 3:20 AM

    “I see a 6-10 team.”

    Actually, at 31-0 at the half, you are not seeing a 6-10 team. You WISH you were seeing a 6-10 team, but that’s not what you are actually seeing.

  54. beastmode5150 says: Aug 23, 2014 4:08 AM

    The Seahawks looks pretty good. Almost like the other team doesn’t like to play them.

  55. osiris33 says: Aug 23, 2014 4:23 AM

    Complete physical domination. Get used to it NFL. Get used to it.

  56. dbara43 says: Aug 23, 2014 4:27 AM

    55-7 the last 2 weeks in the first half against mostly No. 1’s. San Diego was a playoff team last year.

    9 first half possessions, 7 TDs, 2FGs, 55 points. There is no better team on this planet.

  57. upyoursanus says: Aug 23, 2014 5:29 AM

    Once again people are bragging about a preseason game lol… Can’t wait to see this team fall from grace

  58. mackie66 says: Aug 23, 2014 6:27 AM

    Seahawks could be the second team in NFL history to go undefeated.

  59. swampcannons says: Aug 23, 2014 7:02 AM

    Must be Lovie’s fault right bears fans?! We’ll be just fine in Tampa where, you know, we actually have a defense.

  60. voiceofreasonsays says: Aug 23, 2014 7:16 AM


    -Colin Kaepernick

  61. fishfiletkray says: Aug 23, 2014 7:23 AM

    Can’t blame it on Lovie anymore.

  62. iowahbr says: Aug 23, 2014 7:44 AM

    A shame that the Bears can’t schedule the University of Chicago club team so we can see their real abilities. First Lovie and now Trestman as the stoic sideline guys show no emotion as their team really stinks it up on the field. Here comes another 8 and 8 year unless the NFL adopts Canadian rules

  63. dukeearl says: Aug 23, 2014 7:53 AM

    For those claiming it is only preseason, and following that up with “the opposition isn’t showing all the wrinkles of their game plan” keep in mind…

    The Hawks aren’t showing all they have either.

  64. theeclevelandsteamer says: Aug 23, 2014 8:05 AM

    0-1 after week 1. Paybacks a bitch. Still Gb’s JV. Packer offense is better at EVERY SINGLE position and will expose Seattle def.

    Wilsons legs wont help. Lynch cant run v. 9 in the box (which u will see thx to that stellar wr core).

  65. senseikiainospape says: Aug 23, 2014 8:08 AM

    @ 12hawksfan1976, they were clearly talking about the bears when they said 6-10 team.

  66. jimmysee says: Aug 23, 2014 8:09 AM

    So what does Coach Ditka have to say?

  67. ausernamethatisavailable says: Aug 23, 2014 8:10 AM

    Not surprising Seattle is a damn good team. NFC is a 4 team race. Only GB, NO and SF can challenge Seattle for NFC crown. These 4 teams are clearly above the rest and while some of these 4 will likely get unlucky with injuries, not all of them will. If your team is in the NFC and is not one of these 4, good luck.

  68. cwdonald314 says: Aug 23, 2014 8:18 AM

    Biggest takeaway from this game is the Bears still have defensive problems,

  69. squackduckhawk says: Aug 23, 2014 8:19 AM

    Besides being a little short, I am curious to find out exactly what “weaknesses and shortcomings of Russell’s” are being exposed.

  70. hawkstradamus says: Aug 23, 2014 8:35 AM

    Up here

    Your team down here.

  71. jahmic says: Aug 23, 2014 8:37 AM

    What happened to all those “game manger” comments?

  72. qdog112 says: Aug 23, 2014 9:07 AM

    So much for the new “emphasis, aka Manning’s Rule”. What the NFL doesn’t know is that defense is played with your feet. You don’t deflect or intercept balls, if yo’re not in position.

    What next:defenses must only tackle after the catch? 75% completions, 80% redzone efficiency, etc. Wilson is the best young QB in the game, with an arrow point straight up.

    By any measurement “experts” come up with, he knocks them down and continues to improve. It’s almost funny how they try to find weaknesses. Wilson puts in work and is rewarded with wins.

  73. realitycheckbaby says: Aug 23, 2014 9:19 AM

    Love all the “it’s only preseason” prayers.

    If Hawks were rolling up these points with the 2s and 3s you may have a point.

    But it’s the 1s vs the 1s, against the AFC SB team (but over half the offensive starters out), against a playoff team and now against a team who missed the playoffs on the final game of the year and who is supposed to have a great offense.

    I told you Harvin would make this a different team and that the offense would improve by 50%. Maybe I was being too conservative.

  74. realitycheckbaby says: Aug 23, 2014 9:28 AM

    Seattle won’t lose at home.

  75. coolherc says: Aug 23, 2014 9:33 AM

    The regular season record may not reflect it, but the Seahawks will be a better team this season than they were last year. Not good for the other teams in the NFL.

  76. realitycheckbaby says: Aug 23, 2014 9:42 AM

    Wilson 158.33 QB rating.

  77. peytons5head says: Aug 23, 2014 9:48 AM

    This is entertaining reading all you eager hawk fans ready to crown your team. ITS PRESEASON, they don’t give out a Lombardi at the end. Its nothing more than evaluations for most teams, and here are the hawks still throwing their first team offense out to play against the bears 2nd and 3rd teams…but I guess you gotta try to pump that lil midgets ego up somehow right? Won’t be surprised when the packers tear you up week 1

  78. brownsmakemecrazy says: Aug 23, 2014 9:49 AM

    Seahawks are repeating. No one can match their defense and their offense is really really good.

    Another ring for Seattle barring a major injury to Wilson and Lynch

  79. fluffybunny74 says: Aug 23, 2014 10:10 AM

    Seahawks have two defensive penalties against their 1st stringers in two games. For those calling the over-emphasis on defensive holding and interference the “Legion of Boom Rule,” you might want to re-evaluate.

  80. larryboodry says: Aug 23, 2014 10:13 AM

    The Packers are one of only 2 teams in the last 2 years to go out in front of the Since ’12 Man and beat the Seahawks. Seattle didn’t beat us, the refs did.

  91. boogerhut says: Aug 23, 2014 10:55 AM

    They get beat in preseason, “it’s just preseason”. They win in preseason, “we look awesome, give us our ring, who can beat us”? Signed, every obnoxious, 2nd year fan that will fade just like all the Flacco freaks.

  92. realitycheckbaby says: Aug 23, 2014 11:03 AM

    The funniest part of Seattle’s easy win over the soft mushy Packers opening night is going to be the moment when you and the rest of the nation realize the Seahawks receivers are better than the Packers.

    A lot better.

    Last season wasn’t the Bears’ offense second only to Denver in scoring? And wasn’t GB’s tied with Seattle’s @#8?

    Now granted, Rogers was hurt as was half the Seattle offensive line and #1 receiver.

    But I’d lay a bet that Seattle’s offense improves vs. last year more than GB’s.

  100. leevi98 says: Aug 23, 2014 12:06 PM

    Funny how with certain teams the media hypes them preseason means something and for others its “just preseason” one thing I will say..most teams that look dominate in preseason are not in regular season.

  101. bassplucker says: Aug 23, 2014 12:11 PM

    The Bears have serious problems at LB. Briggs looks fat, old and slow. This will be his last year in Chicago if this all he’s got left. And the young guys — McClellan, Bostic and Greene — all look like busts. Can’t cover, can’t get off blocks, can’t tackle and are all dumb as bricks.

    Phil Emery will likely have to do a total rebuild of that unit for 2015 since he didn’t get it right the first time. Very hard for Bears fans to take.

  102. leevi98 says: Aug 23, 2014 12:14 PM

    it’s preseason..end of discussion…games in which teams do NOT game plan at all and it’s used as a tool for situational football for evaluation purposes…But yeah go ahead a crown them in week 3 of preseason after they barely winning the bowl and they wont have that awfully easy schedule this year either..

  103. seahonky says: Aug 23, 2014 12:22 PM

    Who can watch Seattle and not see a budding megastar in Russell Wilson? This kid is mesmerizing. He makes it look easy.
    What separates the Seahawks from past defending Super Bowl champs is that not only do they have a No. 1 defense but they also have a top-10 offense. Plus, they are YOUNG. I’d say Seattle is a dynasty in the making.

  107. aldavisfortytime says: Aug 23, 2014 1:06 PM

    Seattle fans after losing to Denver in the preseason: “Whatever it’s just preseason. GO HAWKSS!!!!!!!”

  108. slipperpimp says: Aug 23, 2014 1:07 PM

    As expected– people are jumping on the Seawagon as fast as possible.

    Playing “preseason = regular season” is a game for fools. I can’t see that offense doing much this year as Russell Wilson’s limitations are further exposed. and the defense will be very, very good but not great because they will get called on all the holding they do.

    Add that up with a more lax attitude and we are looking at 10-6 or even 9-7.

    And without home field– no way this team goes to the Super Bowl.
    ===================================you know, it’s funny everyone said the same thing when the Hawks beat down the donkeys in the preseason last year. and yet, the SB looked eerily similar.

    seahawks #1 offense has scored 7 tds and 2 fgs in 10 possessions against the Bears and Chargers 1st team defenses. their defense look as mean as ever. what games are you watching?

    you don’t see much, clearly. this team looks more explosive on offense than the last 2 years, they haven’t lost anything, and what lax attitude? you clearly aren’t watching. but good job making it evident to everyone else you have no idea what you’re talking about.

    The Seahawks earned that Superbowl, and the Packers are going to have their hands full with that ridiculous D. What a great game to kick off the season.

    Everyone wants to make excuses as to why the hawks look good. they never use the excuse that they are really that good though. there are nfl teams and then theres the seahawks who are men among boys.

    For those of you saying preseason doesn’t matter, you’re wrong. It doesn’t count, but it matters.

    Seahawks 2012: 4-0 preseason, 12-6 with a road playoff win
    2013: 4-0 preseason, 13-3, Super Bowl champions
    2014: 2-1, out scored 1st string opponents 55-7 last 2 weeks

    Wow, Da Bears suck! I cannot believe I was worried that they might have a shot at the Division, but the were straight crap. Their defense wasn’t there and the offense…..what offense? My Vikings won’t finish last in the division guaranteed.

    Scary looking team no doubt. Russell Wilson is unbelievable, if Im the Packers, the only guys I use to blitz him are CBs and Safeties, DL and LBers are too slow or not agile enough to catch him in the backfield.

    It’s funny how people complain about NEW Seahawks fans. Like new fans didn’t join the Broncos after Peyton went there or God forbid, the Browns didn’t get new fans because of Johnny Bieber.

    I’m a Panthers fan, but I followed Russell Wilson (the underdog) from NCSU to UW to Seattle and I like how they do it. I’m a new Settle fan, since Russell hit town, but I still like my Panthers.

    Is that wrong? If it is, I don’t wanna be right. The NFL is 75 years old. If teams got no new fans, you wouldn’t be one. You started somewhere.

    You wanna shut up the loud mouth Hawks fans, beat’em!

    Amazing how fans (fanatics) get all revved up for a preseason game.

    The first game of the season with the Seahawks hosting the Packers will be an excellent game!!

    You can’t be the best without beating high level competition. The first game will be important in determining home field advantage. It is like beginning the season with a deep playoff quality game.

    Whoever wins that game gets immediate front runner status in the much tougher NFC.

    …and, my favorite player was only playing in his first game, so got no hits while getting the rust off. Lacey? Wait til my man, “Bam Bam Chancellor,” warms up and starts knocking the snott out of an offensive players breaking throw that defensive line.
    Our defense against the run and slant routes was all, my “anal” self saw as not being perfect…and Sherman’s usual attention to detail, along with Doug Baldwin not getting open, as he usually does when Russell is scrambling.
    Yes, this is only preseason, but our starting Middle Linebacker Bobby Wagner was out, Bam Bam just getting back after offseason surgery is getting his game speed…this is a very scary team folks…a window here to go undefeated and in the middle of a dynasty…bank on it!

    Looks like Pete is building SOMETHING in the great northwest just like he did when he was here in SoCal. Just think Jets fans, what might have been if he hadn’t been fired after all of ONE season. I know the Pats fired him too, but they seem have done all right.

    Thanks again, Pete, for the SPECTACULAR job you did at Souther Cal! If and when L.A. gets a team and you bring your Seahawks to play, the loudest ovation will be for you, starting with me.

  120. firstlisten62 says: Aug 24, 2014 12:23 AM

    Pete is absolutely. AWESOME!!!

  121. RegisHawk says: Aug 24, 2014 8:05 AM

    The Bears are who we thought they were. But it didn’t matter. No team walking into Seattle for the dress-rehearsal was going to walk out with a W. All the haters trolling only shows how many are afraid of the truth and will do anything to convince themselves that it isn’t true.

  122. firstlisten62 says: Aug 24, 2014 10:57 AM

    I will never get this generation’s need to troll and hate. It’s definitely not good for the game and speaks more about the troller than the object of their hate. Very sad.

  123. jdrewsy says: Aug 24, 2014 12:18 PM

    This is very encouraging! Go Hawks!

  124. deweyaxewound says: Aug 25, 2014 1:54 PM

    Kneejerk overreaction to a largely meaningless game.

    The fact is – the Seahawks aren’t as good as that game would suggest, nor are the Bears THAT bad.

    Anyone who understands football knows that ultimately a team’s success is not about how they play in the pre-season, but how they answer these questions:

    A) how do they stack up within their division? (and/or can they win on the road?)
    B) can they stay relatively injury-free?
    C) can they get hot down the stretch, when it REALLY matters?

  125. iowahbr says: Aug 25, 2014 2:50 PM

    you are right and wrong at the same time: right in that it is pre-season – wrong as it just showed the same issues as last year when the Bears couldn’t shut down the other team when it really mattered.

  126. deweyaxewound says: Aug 26, 2014 10:11 AM

    And how – or when – exactly in that game did it “really matter”?

    It only “really mattered” to the Seahawks, who treated that game like it was Super Bowl Pt. II – see Pete Carroll acting like an obnoxious dolt, jumping around and gesticulating and cheer-leading like it’s the damn playoffs, players talking smack, obvious actual game-planning, leaving starters in well into the 3rd even though you’re up by 4 scores, using their Pro Bowl Safety to return kicks in the 3rd quarter for crying out loud!!

    I’m not downplaying the Bears weaknesses, by any means (LBs and Safeties, Special Teams)…but it was obvious the Bears were just being a lot smarter and more conservative. The Bears pass rush/d-line play is and will be much improved. It was clear Tillman and Briggs never left second gear, for one example. Those wiley old vets know better. And Trestman used the game to test & assess individual players – not to risk injury for a pyrrhic victory in a meaningless game.

    I wouldn’t be overly concerned by what you see in pre-season. Case in point – Lions went 4-0 in preseason the same year they went on to a glorious record of 0-16 in the regular season.
