What lifeless showing means for Seattle

By Mike Sando

Four quarters is a long time. Perhaps the Seahawks can fight their way back from a 17-0 deficit to Houston after one quarter.

But if Seattle continues to perform at this level, the organization might need to think about a more extensive overhaul this offseason.

(The Texans have extended their lead to 24-0 since I started typing this entry.)

Houston is taking out its frustrations on Seattle after a disappointing stretch. The Seahawks appear to lack urgency beyond what coach Jim Mora is showing with his sideline tantrums.

This performance reflects negatively on Mora, the assembled talent and overall team leadership.

A few offseason tweaks might not be enough to fix what this type of showing suggests is wrong with Seattle.
