Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson held his usual mid-week meeting with the media today, and an obvious topic was the struggles of the offense Sunday — and struggles obviously being a somewhat relative term since Seattle beat the 49ers 29-3.
Said Wilson: “I think the biggest thing is we’ve just got to execute. At the end of the day we’ve just got to not back ourselves up on offense. We are moving the ball well, but then we are pulling ourselves back. If we eliminate that, I think we’ll definitely do a great job the rest of the season. And we are 2-0 right now, that’s the good thing about it. And we haven’t even hit our stride yet, so the biggest thing is continuing to play one play at a time, focusing on the things we need to fix, and I think that’s the penalties and just the execution here and there, the attention to detail and we will definitely do that.”
Wilson called it a “collective effort” to get the offense back on track.
He also reiterated that he simply missed a few throws early.
“I think one or two of them were mechanical or just a little bit off,” he said. “My biggest focus this week is making sure I have the depth of my drop and delivering an accurate football, all things I know I can do every day. I’m used to it, just one of those things you have to keep working on, harping on, and I’ll be ready to go.”
