Seattle Seahawks Twitter Playcall Was Less Than Aggressive

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll promised to use a playcall pulled from a massive pool of Twitter users to open the team's first exhibition on Thursday night. So as the Seahawks lined up at their own 20-yard-line to battle the San Diego Chargers, hopes were high. Would it be a flea-flicker? A reverse pass? Some wild sandlot play?

Let's go with none of the above. Instead, this is what the play looked like on the NFL gametracker.

1-10-SEA 20(15:00) M.Lynch right tackle to SEA 22 for 2 yards (L.Castillo, A.Garay).

The Twitter playcall was a simple give to Marshawn Lynch. That's it. Tarvaris Jackson turned around, extended his arm and handed the ball off to Lynch. This was mildly disappointing.

Either Twitter under-delivered, and I don't think this is the case, or Carroll went the conservative route. Either way, we can do better than this. Carroll is a gambler that would like to win forever and this is a meaningless preseason game. Go for broke next time.
