Analysis: Seattle Seahawks Using Tight Ends More Often

Scout.com’s Brian McIntyre has posted an analysis of the Seattle Seahawks’ play-calling on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers and revealed some interesting new tendency this season.

The Seahawks ran 47 official offensive plays against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

After rarely using 2-TE sets during the 2008 and 2009 seasons, the Seahawks used at least two tight ends on 53.2% of their plays on Sunday.

Seattle frequently had a tight end lined up next to Polumbus, and in the running game, would have two tight ends, or Ganther lined up as an h-back, on the right-side of the line.
