Doug Baldwin certainly wasn't the only member of the Seattle Seahawks who was unhappy about the team's offensive struggles during a 30-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
But he certainly was the most vocal about it.
The fourth-year receiver was caught on camera yelling in star quarterback Russell Wilson's face.
And Baldwin was still fired up after the game, using plenty of expletives to let reporters know exactly how he felt.
“What do you think, man? We’re frustrated,’’ said Baldwin, who made two catches for 32 yards and also had a blocked punt, which a teammate returned 25 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. “The offense can’t ... move the ball. We’ve got too much ... talent over here not to be moving the ball.”
Wilson had what was easily his worst game of the season, completing 14 of 28 passes for 126 yards with no touchdowns and one interception for a quarterback rating of 47.6. But, despite the on-field confrontation, Baldwin said he's not putting the blame on the quarterback.
“It’s not on Russ,’’ Baldwin said. “I’m just saying, in general, our offense, we’re just too ... 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.”
One of the most frustrating parts for Baldwin seems to be that these struggles didn't just appear Sunday. He said he saw similar issues during the Seahawks' 27-17 victory over the Washington Redskins last Monday night.
“We need to be honest with ourselves and hold each other accountable and be real. The ... that we had last week about how great our offense played, that’s ... In all honesty, that’s ... because we played like ... last week. We didn’t correct those things, and it caught up to us.”Twitter: @chewkiii
