Pro Football Focus reviews Seattle season

Here are a few stats and observations on Seattle’s season from the guys at Pro Football Focus:

Offense

- Both Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch ranked 2nd at their positions in rushing grade.

- Paul McQuistan played the 3rd most snaps on the offense at 802, but graded very poorly in pass protection and didn’t fare well as a run blocker either.

- Formerly a backup, Michael Bowie played his way into the starting lineup and achieved the highest run blocking grade on the team, despite playing just slightly over half the offensive snaps.

- Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin played 790 and 773 snaps respectively. The two also tied for the 22nd highest overall wide receiver grades on the season.

Passing

- Russell Wilson with no pressure: 184-of-259 (71.0%) for 2383 yards, 9.2 per attempt, 16 TD, 4 INT, and a QB Rating of 113.8. When pressured, the numbers are 73-of-148 (49.3%) for 974 yards, 6.6 per attempt, 10 TD, 5 INT, and a 79.1 QB Rating.

- When throwing more than 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage, Wilson’s cumulative PFF grade is +25.9. On throws traveling less than 10 yards beyond the line, his grade is -3.8.

Rushing

- Despite a team run blocking grade of -39.1, Marshawn Lynch managed to pick up 1,262 rushing yards on 301 carries, including 752 yards after contact. Lynch forced a league-leading 75 missed tackles on running plays.

- Russell Wilson gained 434 yards on 51 scrambles, good for an 8.5 yard average. He had 15 kneeldowns, and his other 30 carries went for 123 yards.

Defense

- Seattle had 16 different defenders with +2.4 overall grades or better and over 450 snaps played. They missed only 78 tackles as a team.

- Defensive linemen Brandon Mebane, Tony McDaniel, Michael Bennett, and Red Bryant all played the run very strongly throughout the year, each graded out in the top 11 at their positions.

- Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril both rushed the passer with great effectiveness. Bennett picked up 65 total pressures and Avril had 47. Each was top five among 4-3 defensive ends in pass rush grade.

- Richard Sherman and Byron Maxwell each achieved top 10 coverage grades among cornerbacks, while Earl Thomas earned the 4th highest among safeties.

Special Teams

- Jeremy Lane’s +9.5 special teams grade tied him for 3rd best in the league.

Kicking/Rets.

- Steven Hauschka had a +33.8 overall grade, good for 5th best among kickers.
- Golden Tate’s +11.6 grade on kick and punt returns placed 2nd best in the NFL.
