Week 4 vs. STL
Receiving: 4 / 62 / 0 on 8 targets
Stokley got open deep in the second half as Hasselbeck threw from the shadows of his own goalpost, and the the acquisition Stokley also got targets early on simple routes where just found open space in the defense. There's no reason to think that he won't continue to split the meager production in this passing game even further for the rest of the season.
Week 6 vs. CHI
Receiving: 3 / 17 / 0 on 3 targets
Stokely played a very low key and complementary r ole on
Sunday and will likely keep this role throughout the season at this
stage in his career. He worked underneath routes, often option routes
or after play action for very short gains. He often looked like the
check down option for Hasselbeck, rather than a real target.
Week 7 vs. ARI
Receiving: 1 / 16 / 0 on 2 targets
Working out of the slot some but his best days are clearly behind him right now. Things would get bad for Seattle is they had to rely on this guy for more than a few spot catches a game.
Week 8 vs. OAK
Receiving: 1 / 13 / 0 on 1 targets
Stokley didn't see a lot of opportunities, but was reliable when called upon. He did a great job with a quick catch, managing to get out of bounds in last minute of half.
Week 9 vs. NYG
Receiving: 2 / 26 / 0 on 3 targets
Stokley wasn't involved enough to make a difference, but perhaps he should be. He seemed to have more reliable hands and route running ability than both Butler and Williams. On one of his catches, Stokley made a nice grab near the turf on a poor throw, nearly getting the Seahawks a rare first down.
Week 11 vs. NO
Receiving: 6 / 76 / 0 on 6 targets
Stokley didn't see the field right away, but when he did, he made his presence felt in the red zone, getting the Seahawks close to the goal line with two consecutive catches. He got open consistently, and showed sure hands on every catch. His fourth catch of the game, an 18 yard gain on a quick slant out of the slot, put the Seahawks in position to score a field goal before halftime. He ended the game 6-for-6 on catches-targets.
Week 12 vs. KC
Receiving: 5 / 51 / 0 on 8 targets
The Slot Machine had a nice game for the Seahawks, one of the few bright spots in the game. Stokley worked his magic in the slot and managed to get separation from Chiefs defensive backs throughout the game. None of his plays were explosive, but Hasselbeck trusts him and in games where the Seahawks are trailing, Stokley is likely to see a lot of action.
Week 13 vs. CAR
Receiving: 4 / 47 / 0 on 5 targets
When the Seahawks offense was having trouble getting going, Hasselbeck began relying on Stokley, and his veteran ability to get open. Stokley was able to find the open spot and Hasselbeck did a good job of finding him. Hasselbeck has begun to rely on Stokley more over the past few weeks as he's integrated himself into the offense.
Week 14 vs. SF
Receiving: 3 / 35 / 0 on 4 targets
Stokley proved to be a reliable target early on, as he found little cushions in the zone defense to help move the chains. As the Seahwawks fell behind, he was no longer used in the same way. Hasselbeck at one point threw a fade pass to him in the end zone, which he clearly had no chance at all to go up for.
Week 16 vs. TB
Receiving: 1 / 6 / 0 on 1 targets
Given the pressure that Whitehurst faced most of the time, it was surprising that Stokley --- generally an ultra-reliable target out of the slot --- saw only one target. It was a short catch over the middle for a first down, and he was shaken up on the play. No word of an injury, but also no further contributions from him in this game.
Week 18 vs. NO
Receiving: 4 / 73 / 1 on 4 targets
Stokley had a vintage performance in this game --- reminding many of his time not only with the Colts but also with the Ravens, with whom he caught a touchdown in a Super Bowl. Most of his work was done in typical Stokley fashion, catching short-to-medium passes and working the middle of the field. His "splash" play, however, featured him running a go route out of a trips bunch formation for a 45-yard touchdown. Stokley's skill set is a lesser version of the other Seahawks' receivers though --- more possession-style than deep threat.
Week 19 vs. CHI
Receiving: 8 / 85 / 1 on 11 targets
Brandon Stokley lacks the quickness in and out of his breaks that he used to have, but he can still find the hole in the defense and exploit it. Stokley acted as the security blanket for Hasselbeck in this game and came up with some nice catches, albeit most were for short gains. Stokley scored a late touchdown on a coverage breakdown from the Bears defense.
