Not an overreaction at all. The run game hasnt been the same since Kaep took over. Like you mentioned yourself, the run game has not been effective in the pistol. It comes down to gameplan with Kaep vs gameplan with Alex. Yes the gameplanning has been lacking all season, but this team IMO was much more effective with AS under center. No way in hell they come out gunslinging this week with AS under center, Frank Gore has had a career of stoping the seahawks and we come out slinging the football? and thats where the mentality is all wrong with Kaep.
Not going to blame the game on 3 straight passes to start it off. It didn't work, but if we ran the ball on 1st and 2nd and got stuffed and had to punt it's the same result.
This game was a complete team failure and to think it all unraveled because of the first 3 plays is just silly.
I get the larger point that our rushing attack has regressed which is a bit surprising because the read option has actually improved Seattle and Washington's rushing attacks but I don't think this is the week to point fingers. When we got blown by NYG, and Min we stopped running the ball as well. That's football.
