Seahawks’ offensive line a cause for concern?

The offensive line was considered by some to be a strength of the Seahawks, a unit that features a pair of Pro Bowlers and is beginning its third season under Tom Cable’s tutelage.

It didn’t exactly look the part during Sunday’s win over Carolina.

Seattle’s offensive line committed three penalties, the Seahawks ran for only 70 yards – their lowest total since December of 2011 – and quarterback Russell Wilson was sacked twice, a total that belies the constant pressure he faced.

“They wound up doing all right as the game wound up,” coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Monday when asked about the play of Seattle’s offensive line. “We needed to help them a little bit scheme-wise and some things that we needed to fix in the run game that against that opponent didn’t work out right for us. Really, I don’t think it’s anything but we need to get back to business and we’ll make this go in the right direction.”

In the video below, Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby discuss what to make of Seattle’s offensive line as it prepares to face San Francisco, which has one of the best front sevens in the NFL.
