Bump’s Seahawks Breakdowns: How Waldron and Hurtt have shined

Nov 3, 2022, 4:58 PM

The Seattle Seahawks are 5-3 and in first place in the NFC West, and they’re in a great spot heading into the final nine games of the year.

Fann: Shelby Harris has been a sensational addition for Seahawks defense

A few big reasons for Seattle’s success are the emergence of Geno Smith at quarterback as well as the stellar play of the team’s rookie draft class, but Michael Bumpus thinks that the Seahawks’ two coordinators need some love and have been big reasons for the team’s success so far.

The man leading the charge on offense is Shane Waldron, who is in his second year calling the Seahawks’ plays on offense. Bumpus, a former NFL receiver, shares what stands out about the offense, such as the usage of tight ends, and what Waldron needs to do to adjust over the rest of the season.

On defense, Clint Hurtt is running the show in his first year as the Seahawks’ defensive coordinator. It was a slow start for Hurtt’s defense through Seattle’s first five games, but over the last three weeks, that unit has really come together and played very well. Bumpus discusses what’s been working for that unit of late and the adjustments that Seattle’s defense has made.

Watch and listen to Bumpus’ latest video breakdown either at this link or in the video player at the top of this story.
