as troubled as most people seem to be by the Oakland Raiders' lack of a pass rush.The way Johnson sees it Cory Littleton Jersey , there are other ways for the defense to impact games.Yet with only two sacks in two games, Johnson also realizes something has to change."It's a lot of ways to contribute to being a really good defense besides getting sacks," Johnson said Thursday. "Don't get me wrong, sacks help big time but red zone defense is a big part of being a really good defense. Turnovers for sure. It's still early."Oakland's pass rush, or lack thereof, has been heavily scrutinized since the team traded 2016 defensive player of the year Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears a week before the season opener.Mack has had a sack and a forced fumble in each of his first two games while helping the Bears to an NFL-leading 10 sacks. Mack also scored a touchdown in his Chicago debut against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.Conversely, the Raiders pass rush has been sparse at best. Defensive end Bruce Irvin got to Rams quarterback Jared Goff for a coverage sack in Week 1 while rookie defensive lineman Maurice Hurst dropped Case Keenum in Week 2.Like Johnson, Oakland defensive coordinator Paul Guenther believes there are other ways for the Raiders to be effective. During Guenther's stint as Cincinnati's defensive coordinator, the Bengals had more than 33 sacks only twice in four seasons but finished in the top 20 overall three times."Obviously you'd like to have sacks but if you really look at it, when you look at the statistics year in and year out http://www.theramslockerroom.com/authentic-john-kelly-jersey , the teams that are up there in sacks aren't necessarily playoff teams. A lot of times they're not," Guenther said. "You'd always like to get a number of sacks. It kind of feeds off each other and the kind of personnel you have. That's not the most important thing but obviously you want to get after the opposing quarterback."Oakland has forced only one turnover in two games. The Raiders are also 26th in defensive third-down efficiency, allowing opponents to convert 12 of 27 opportunites.Johnson said there is a sense of urgency in Oakland's locker room, although the 35-year-old sounds more concerned with the Raiders' inability to stop the Broncos on their game-winning drive in the final seconds last week than he is about the pass rush."Really the last two games the first half was pretty good team effort but we have to finish the close ones, win the close ones," Johnson said. "As a defense we have to be hoping for that situation, saying, 'Hey, if we stop them it's over.' It's not the whole defense. It's a play here, a play there. Not being tight enough here or communication. Just a little something on each play of that last drive hurt us."With nine new starters and a 10th — Irvin — playing a different position than he did a year ago Womens Troy Hill Jersey , the argument could be made the Raiders are still going through growing pains.Johnson isn't buying it."That's too easy of an excuse," Johnson said. "We've been together for a little bit. We know the plays. We just have to execute better. Our defensive coordinator knows we can do that. We need to help him out by making some plays. We have to make plays."__ By the time December rolls around, the Seattle Seahawks may have more regret than they currently do about what transpired the first two weeks of the regular season.Because in hindsight, those first two games appear such outliers from where the Seahawks are headed based on the way they've played for the past month."I'll never not be frustrated by the way we started this season, but we're moving," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "This is kind of how we've done it over the years and we got a chance to be a really nice team."The Seahawks sit at 3-3 going into their bye week, but a .500 record doesn't fully tell the story of what Seattle has shown through six games.For two weeks, the Seahawks were lost in trying to discover their identity. No matter how much they said during the offseason they were committed to running the ball, relying on field position and defense, putting that mission statement into practice when the regular season began proved difficult.That's why Seattle seemed so out of whack offensively during season-opening losses to Denver and Chicago. It was counter to everything Carroll and his staff preached leading into the opener.And it's why a reset before Week 3 has proved the difference in putting the Seahawks in position to be part of the playoff conversation as the season progresses.The reset Seattle made offensively before facing Dallas in Week 3 involved two key aspects. The first happened on the offensive line. D.J. Fluker returned from injury and was slotted in at right guard Robert Woods Jersey , sliding veteran J.R. Sweezy over to left guard. The shuffling on the line instantly made Seattle a significantly better run-blocking team. Fluker has put together his own personal highlight tape of flattening defenders in recent weeks, while Sweezy's demeanor and style is akin to the Seattle teams he played for several years ago when the Seahawks were making Super Bowls.The second came with Seattle's stable of running backs. Rather than trying to be equitable, as the Seahawks were through the first two weeks, the decision was made to make Chris Carson the primary ball carrier. No more splitting carries just for the sake of doing so. Only when Carson needed a break would another back get the chance.The results for the past four games — when the Seahawks have gone 3-1 — have completely changed the course of Seattle's season. In those four games combined, Seattle is one of three teams to have rushed for more than 600 yards, along with the Rams and Cowboys. The Seahawks' 180 total rushing attempts are second only to the Rams. In the past four games, Seattle has 142 rushes, the most of any team during that span.And the Seahawks are getting these yards with only limited contribution from Russell Wilson as a running threat a year after he was Seattle's leading rusher.At a time the league is going wild with passing and scoring, the Seahawks are bucking the offensive trend in the other direction with a formula that appears to be working."This is winning football," Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. "You run the ball http://www.theramslockerroom.com/authentic-andrew-whitworth-jersey , you convert on third down in passing game when you have to. You play stifling defense and stopping the run, and you don't turn the ball over. Usually you win the games when you do that."The most telling stat comes from looking at Wilson's numbers. In the first two games, he was sacked 12 times, completed just 59.4 percent of his throws and had a passer rating of 89.3. In the four games since, Wilson is completing 67 percent while attempting significantly fewer throws; has a passer rating of 116; and has been sacked seven times.Just as eye opening is his lack of runs: Wilson has just 17 rushes for 62 yards through six games. Last year, Wilson had already run 32 times."Russell's doing more than he's ever done before. He's orchestrating and controlling the play calling, the adjustments at the line of scrimmage when he can," Carroll said. "He's just been brought to a different level of responsibility and he's doing a nice job with it. He's putting us in position to run the ball effectively now as well as in the passing game, so he's grown, yeah he's improved."Whether that formula is capable of keeping Seattle in the playoff race will be tested when it returns from the bye. The Seahawks face a challenging five-week stretch in which four of the five opponents have above-.500 records. Three of those games — at Detroit Womens John Johnson Jersey , vs. Green Bay, at Carolina — come against teams Seattle could end up competing against for a wild-card berth."There's a real style about it where we can sense now. It's one week at a time, we just need to keep riding that and see how far it takes us," Carroll said.
