When asked about the quiet games Brandin Cooks and he put up, Randall Cobb responded ""In the passing game, it takes a lot to build that chemistry and that trust. It'll come. It's a matter of when. Obviously, we've got to have that urgency moving forward."
Cobb disappointed in his Texans debut as Houston was pounded by the Kansas City Chiefs. Watson will be the receiver to run short and intermediate routes, routes that Watson need to be ran so he has a safety valve with the team's porous offensive line. Look for him to rebound Week 2 in another higher scoring game against the Baltimore Ravens.
JoeFann of NBC Sports Northwest believes Greg Olsen could have a prominent role in Seattle's offensive scheme Sunday against the New England Patriots. "D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett feasted in Week 1, catching a combined 12 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown," wrote Fann. "They’ll have a much tougher time getting open on Sunday against the talented corner duo of Jackson and Gilmore."
"That leads me to believe that this could be a game where Greg Olsen shines. Pete Carroll said after the win in Atlanta that Olsen will have games where he catches 8-10 passes. This one would certainly seem like a game where Olsen has the more favorable matchup compared to Lockett and Metcalf."
Olsen will have to produce against the Patriots' excellent secondary for Seattle to win. Pete Carroll and the Seahawks prefer an up-tempo pace and have to connect through the air to keep their pace of play. The tight end position has had injuries burden the position already this season, so Olsen finishing as a TE1 is not a surprising thought.
