Seattle receiver Doug Baldwin was the face of Seattle’s frustration last Sunday following a 30-23 loss, with pointed comments about the offense and the need of the team to “stop BS-ing ourselves.”
Baldwin, though, had a much different tenor after Sunday’s loss at St. Louis in which the Seahawks gained a season-high 463 yards and had scoring drives of 82, 91 and 80 in the second half.
Baldwin was a big part of the offense, playing more at the slot position with Percy Harvin now gone — the same spot Baldwin played primarily the last three seasons — catching seven passes for 123 yards.
“I don’t really believe in moral victories but we try to be positive when things don’t go our way and our motto is you win some you learn some,” Baldwin said. “We didn’t win the game but there’s a lot we can learn from a lot we can get back to. We got back to who were were as an offense. There are a lot of things to clean up, but there are a lot of positives we can take out of this game. Just very proud of my teammates and this team as a whole just how we fought to the very end. Like I said, we’ve still go a lot of things to clean up but I think we are back on the right track.”
Asked later his mood following the game, he said “Positive. Like I said, I think offensively it felt like we got back to what we do. (Offensive coordinator) Darrell Bevell called a great game, I think. Our offensive line played pretty well. Receivers, there are a lot of plays we could have still made but a lot of positives. Completely different than the game last week where I felt we didn’t have any growth. This game, you could feel the growth within our offense. So I’m excited about that going forward.”
