Wyman: Why Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett’s 69-yard TD catch was so impressive

Sep 14, 2021, 3:48 PM

Much of the attention after the Seahawks’ 28-16 win over the Colts in Week 1 of the NFL season was given to new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, but if there’s any one player who shined the most in Seattle’s new offense – quarterback Russell Wilson notwithstanding – it was Tyler Lockett.

Heaps: Recipe for Seahawks D-line’s success on display in Week 1

The veteran wide receiver and franchise record-holder for most receptions in a season got off to a stellar start Sunday, hauling in four catches for 100 yards, including two touchdowns. Both of Lockett’s touchdowns were highlight reel-worthy, but it was the second – a 69-yarder on a long bomb from Wilson – that really turned former NFL linebacker Dave Wyman’s head.

Wyman, who co-hosts 710 ESPN Seattle’s Wyman and Bob and calls games as the color commentator on the Seahawks Radio Network, puts that play under the microscope to kick off a new season of Seahawks Football 101 for 710 ESPN Seattle. Watch the video embedded at the top of this post for Wyman’s breakdown of Lockett’s route as well as his overview of what Seattle did in its first game in Waldron’s offense.
