Seahawks eyeing potential lineup change on offensive line against Titans

The Seattle Seahawks offensive line continues to be a work-in-progress.

Having scored just 21 points through the first two games of the season and not getting their first touchdown until the fourth quarter of last week’s win over the San Francisco 49ers, the Seahawks have hinted a possible lineup change this week along their offensive line.

Offensive line coach Tom Cable indicated that the right guard spot held by Mark Glowinski (pictured) the first two games of the season could be subject to change for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

“We will certainly find out in terms of competition where we go with that (position),” Cable said on Wednesday.

The replacement at that spot would be veteran Oday Aboushi, who battling with Glowinski throughout training camp for the starting job. Aboushi – having played the last two seasons with the Houston Texans – has seen Dick LeBeau’s defense multiple times and knows what to expect from their pressure packages. That familiarity with the Titans was cited by Cable as a big positive for the team this week.

“For him and Luke (Joeckel) both there’s great familiarity with this group playing them twice a year,” Cable said.

“It’s good for the room actually, talking to them about not only players but the scheme and all that I think has been really kind of a nice deal for us this week.”

While no one with the Seahawks is specifically confirming the change, Aboushi said he’s looking forward to the chance to play if called upon.

“Yeah, 100 percent,” he said. “I think every time you get a chance to go out there in this game, that’s never promised, I think it’s a blessing. You’ve just got to take it and have fun with it.”

  1. Joeckl has been beaten by Lebeau’s and every other defensive coordinator’s scheme out there. So yeah, he’s familiar all right. Not sure that is a big positive. I suppose if you are the coach for that wretched position group for Seattle you got to try and spin it.

  2. Great idea! Reminds me of the time the captain of the Titanic realized they might have an iceberg problem, so he had all the stewards move the deck chairs to one side of the ship.

  3. Great-Bradley Sowell and Drew Nowack signings will be next.
    Nervous to think how Cable is gonna keep Wilson upright all season long.
    His Houdini act can’t be something we expect/ count on, something needs to change.
    Good luck this week Titans- I am lucky enough to be in Nashville for game this weekend and love your city and fans.
    Everyone has been really cool we have met , and the football fans can’t wait to get a shot at
    our OLine and I understand why…..

  4. Man, everybody a pessimist today. I think they could solve their problem by getting wee lineman. That would allow their tiny QB to see well enough to throw the ball more quickly.

  5. The Hawks are a victim of their own success the past few years. They had to pay their stars on defense and the QB who wanted to be the highest paid player in the league. The penny pinching had to come from somewhere else. Unfortunately, they chose to go cheap on the offensive line. Games are won and lost on the line

  6. Since Russell Wilson joined the team in 2011, the ‘Hawks have gone to the playoffs 5 straight years, winning at least one game in each of those playoffs. They NFL has been around since 1920, and in that time only 14 teams have ever done that. This year, the ‘Hawks will make it the 6th straight time.

    Our offensive line has not been very good in any of those years. Yet we have still managed to go to the Super Bowl twice, win once, and we’ve had that amazing string of playoff victories. We will be just fine. It won’t be pretty and I will be cussing at the offensive line every game, but come playoff time, we’ll be in the thick of things again.

  7. …Seahawk fans are use to a slow start at the beginning of the season and low expectations for the offensive line the first two or three games into the season…and they still go to the play-offs….

    When your one year dynasty started your oline was a strength of your team…now that you’re paid up everywhere else, it’s not.

  9. Brady2gronk Your football knowledge is astounding. Seattle had a strength at Oline the year they won the SB? Why, because you said so? They were ranked 27th in pass block and 29th in run block. Oh yeah but you are right sir.
