Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin rips team's offensive performance
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin criticized his team’s offensive performance after losing to Dallas 30-23 on Sunday, saying the offense needs to be real and accountable for their performance.
The Cowboys held the ball for almost 38 minutes and Seattle compiled only nine first downs and 206 total yards. The Seahawks lost for only the second time at home in the past two seasons.
“The BS that we had last week about how great our offense played, that’s BS,” Baldwin said, according to the Seattle Times. “In all honesty, that’s BS because we played like (expletive) last week. We didn’t correct those things, and it caught up to us.”
Baldwin wasn’t done with his critique of the offense, which ranks 28th in the NFL after the first six weeks of the season.
“We’re frustrated,” Baldwin said. “The offense can’t (expletive) move the ball. We’ve got too much (expletive) talent over here not to be moving the ball.” said Baldwin, "We had plenty of time to make plays. We've got too much talent not to be moving the (expletive) ball."
Baldwin, who had two receptions for 32 yards and blocked a punt leading to a touchdown, said he is not mad at quarterback Russell Wilson, who was 14-of-28 for 126 yards and one interception against Dallas. He was also sacked twice.
“It’s not on Russ,” Baldwin said. “I’m just saying, in general, our offense, we’re just too (expletive) good not to be moving the ball down the field. It’s a collaborative thing. We’ve all got to pitch in and do our part. We’ve all got to do better.”
The Seahawks (3-2) play the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
