offense so fast that he caught a TD pass on his first drive with the team five days after being acquired by the 49ers in a trade from Denver.Sanders only built from there by posting the most prolific receiving performance this season for the 49ers four days later as he already has become Jimmy Garoppolo's No. 1 outside target."I'm not surprised Seattle Seahawks T-Shirts ," Sanders said. "I really didn't give it any thought. My job is to come in, make plays and be in the perfect spot. His job is to deliver the football. We were able to do that."The Seattle Seahawks can only hope for as seamless a transition from their new big-play wideout. Josh Gordon could make his debut on Monday night for Seattle (7-2) in an NFC West showdown against the 49ers (8-0).The addition of Gordon to a wide receiver group that already includes the dynamic Tyler Lockett and impressive rookie D.K. Metcalf will make Seattle's passing game even more dangerous as soon as he becomes more comfortable in the offense and forms a good chemistry with Russell Wilson."It can be difficult. It can be hard on the fly," Gordon said. "You want to be able to just move without thinking as much. Getting to that part of the game is the most important part for me, making everything kind of more second nature. As long as you study and ask questions, the less doubts you have. For me, that's been my experience. I'm pretty well knowledgeable about certain offenses, talking to Coach Schottenheimer, talking to Russ. They've been instrumental in bringing me along in this process."Gordon was claimed off waivers by Seattle last week after being waived by New England following injuries to his knee and ankle. He passed a physical with the Seahawks and got on the practice field this week.Before being released, Gordon was among New England's leading receivers this season, with 20 catches for 287 yards and a touchdown through six games. He has dealt with several substance abuse suspensions in his career but also has shown great ability, with a league-leading 1,646 yards receiving in 14 games in 2013 with Cleveland."Josh is such a natural https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/hats ," Wilson said. "He understands the game so well. How he catches the football, understands how to use leverage and catch the football and do all that. He makes it easy on me. He just comes in just ready to roll. He understands the route concepts. He understands what we're trying to do, and he just does a great job with it. To be honest with you, it's been a very smooth transition."The Seahawks can only hope it goes as well as Sanders' did in San Francisco after being acquired along with a fifth-round pick from Denver for third- and fourth-round draft picks in 2020 on Oct. 22.Sanders took a quick crash course in an offense that was similar to the one he played in with the Broncos, whose coordinator Rich Scangarello spent the previous two seasons as quarterbacks coach for the 49ers.Sanders then caught two passes on his first drive with San Francisco, including 4-yard TD from Garoppolo in a win over Carolina. He finished that game with four catches for 25 yards.Sanders was even better last week with seven catches for 112 yards and a touchdown in a 28-25 win at Arizona, giving the 49ers the No. 1 receiver that has been one of the only missing ingredients this season."He'll go over the middle, he'll go across, he'll go deep, he'll go outside, he'll go inside," 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman said. "That's how a receiver is built. At 180 pounds going across the middle with no fear is not the way you always see it drawn up. You'll see 230-pound receivers who won't go across the middle. I don't think it's about the weight or the size of the dog Seattle Seahawks Hoodie , it's about the dog in you and he has huge dog."But there's more than toughness that has helped Sanders assimilate. There's also a trust with Garoppolo that has led to the early success.Never was that more evident than on a third-down play last week against Arizona, when Garoppolo started his throw well before Sanders began his break, only to have the ball arrive at precisely the right moment for a 22-yard gain."He's savvy," Garoppolo said. "He knows what to do, feels space when it's zone and he beats the guy when it's man. It's a nice combination. He's so smart that he just does things that, as a quarterback, you love to see, and it makes it easy on you to throw the ball to him." CHICAGO (AP) — Russell Wilson looked to his left and his right. He looked for help in the middle of the field. He looked short and he looked for deep balls.No one was open.It was that kind of Monday night for the Seattle Seahawks.Wilson was surrounded for most of Seattle’s 24-17 loss to the Chicago Bears, and he got very little help from his teammates until the fourth quarter. He was sacked six times for the second straight week, including five in the first half, and made a game-sealing mistake in the final period.“We’re still a work in progress,” coach Pete Carroll said. “You can see how hard our guys played http://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Phil-Haynes-Jersey , see how they fought throughout all the way to the last seconds on the clock.”Seattle (0-2) played without guard D.J. Fluker and receiver Doug Baldwin due to injuries, and Baldwin’s absence was particularly noticeable. Tyler Lockett was the Seahawks’ top receiver with five catches for 60 yards, but he got most of his numbers in the fourth. Brandon Marshall struggled to get open against one of his former teams.“I can always do better,” Marshall said. “There’s some things I definitely have to clean up. Just got to be sharper in everything that I do. We got to find a way to make plays.”The rushing attack also was shut down by Chicago’s refurbished defense, finishing with 74 yards on 22 carries. Seattle went almost 24 minutes of game time between rushing plays at one point.Wilson began the fourth quarter with just 69 yards on 9-for-20 passing, but he tried to rally the Seahawks down the stretch.“The fourth quarter showed us who we are and who we can be,” Wilson said. “We just got to get a better start and try to figure out how to catch that fire that we had in the fourth quarter, let’s put it in the first, second, third if we can do that, which I don’t think we’re far off by any means.”The four-time Pro Bowler found Lockett for 20 yards and tight end Nathan Vannett for 11 to move Seattle deep into Chicago territory. He then threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Lockett to trim the Bears’ lead to 17-10 with 10:13 left.Chicago (1-1) went three and out on the ensuing drive and punted the ball right back to Seattle. But Wilson’s pass intended for Rashaad Penny near midfield was picked off by Prince Amukamara, who returned his first interception since 2015 for his first career touchdown with 6:37 remaining.“You can’t even remember the last time Russ did that Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey ,” Carroll said.Wilson also lost a fumble on Seattle’s next drive. He passed to Will Dissly for a 2-yard touchdown with 14 seconds to go, but the Seahawks’ onside kick was unsuccessful and the Bears ran out the clock.The lackluster showing for Seattle’s offense wasted a solid performance for its defense, led by two second-quarter interceptions for Shaquill Griffin. The second-year cornerback made a nice play on an underthrown ball by Mitchell Trubisky, and then had a diving grab on a tipped ball.Mychal Kendricks had one of Seattle’s two sacks in his first game since he signed with the Seahawks on Friday. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges, but he isn’t expected to be sentenced in the case until January and the NFL has yet to impose any discipline.“Just having this opportunity to play it means so much more to me,” said Kendricks, who was released by Cleveland on Aug. 29 after the charges were filed. “That being said, I plan on doing the most with it.”It just wasn’t enough, not with the Seahawks’ ineffective offense.Wilson was 22 for 36 for 226 yards. Penny was the top rusher with 10 carries for 30 yards as Seattle possessed the ball for just 25 1/2 minutes.“The fighter mentality in me is always going to be there so you can’t play scared,” Wilson said. “You got to be able to go for it. I think we were still able to do that. We had a lot of fourth-quarter comebacks and I believe those are going to happen.”
