In something that will be a regular feature through the season, I wrote a list of five things that were learned from the Seahawks’ win over the Chargers last night.
And yes, I agree with the sentiment of many of you that the main thing we learned is that Seattle’s backups are better than San Diego’s backups.
That overall assessment aside, however, I focused more on some individuals and positions that we also may have learned a few things about.
As many of you have pointed out, it was just an exhibition game and all that that entails — lots of backups, no gameplanning, regular guys who could play resting, etc.
It’s also all we — and the coaches — have right now, and in this era of shortened training camp and fewer full-contact practices, performances in exhibition games takes on a bigger importance than ever in deciding positions and roster spots.
