Seahawks mostly quiet in another uneventful Pro Bowl game

Yes today we got to see the NFL Pro Bowl game where the rules are made up and the points don’t matter. For the Seattle Seahawks, who were eliminated in week 17 from a playoff appearance, this was the last opportunity for fans to see some Hawks on display–perhaps a couple of them for the last time in a Seahawks helmet.

The NFC built a 20-3 lead at halftime, but would eventually lose to the AFC 24-23 when Derek Carr hit Delanie Walker with just a 1:39 left in the game.

The game was marred with sloppy play as is standard for an exhibition game where effort tends to be muted in an effort to stay healthy.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson had a messy game throwing a pick. The interception came on a complete communication breakdown between Wilson and the saints Michael Thomas. Wilson threw a deep ball, however, Thomas broke the route short. Russell did have 9-14 passing for 69 yards, but couldn’t muster much in the way of points.

WR Doug Baldwin caught 3-35 including a pass where he nearly ran for a TD, but just barely stepped out of bounds, bringing the ball back. Late addition, OT Duane Brown made an appearance with yeoman like work.

Defensively, we say FS Earl Thomas showed off passion on an off the field. As seen above he could be seen dancing in excitement for teammate Doug Baldwin’s potential TD. However, off the field, he candidly clarified that he will hold out if his contract is not extended.

Also making an appearance is DL Michael Bennett who would jump offsides 3 times. As with his history of offsides, a fan could laugh or shake their head with shame.
