Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 10 vs SF (10 / 6 / 70 / 0 rec)

Once again, Metcalf's target share led the team (tied with Hollister). Metcalf had his moments, and contributed some important catches to help move the chains late in the game. But he also remained inconsistent, as you might expect from a rookie. Unfortunately, his most memorable play ended in a lost fumble. Metcalf received the ball at the line of scrimmage, ran down the sideline in traffic, until, inside the five, Metcalf was overwhelmed by three 49er defenders. As he pushed and extended to the goal line, the ball was stripped. After much replay checking, the 49ers were given the ball at the two-yard line. Metcalf impressed in small ways, though, like his first down catch that started with some improvised route running as Wilson scrambled, and excellent concentration and strength when he got drilled at the sideline almost immediately. Lastly, Wilson threw a jump ball down the sidelines on a couple of occasions, but in each case he was covered tightly and wasn't able to make the play.

2019 Week 9 vs TB (9 / 6 / 123 / 1 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

Metcalf started slow, but proved reliable as the team kept him involved. He and Russell Wilson are still figuring each other out, as evidenced by the first pass, which was thrown behind him. Metcalf then took a reverse for 8 yards, and remained relatively quiet, but adding a couple of big plays along the way. He made a 2-point conversion look easy, as he caught a laser throw in a crowd; then looked fast and elusive on his 53-yard TD catch, as he gained separation before the long catch, and then ran in untouched. Once Metcalf has the ball, he's tough to take down - on one short catch, he effortlessly pushed away a defender for extra yards. He capped off his day with a couple more in the final minute to set up the (missed) field goal. And finally, the big downfield catch in OT, was a tough one in coverage, and brought the ball to the 6 yard line.

2019 Week 8 vs ATL (5 / 3 / 13 / 2 rec)

Metcalf had no targets until his TD catch in Q2. On his first score, he lined up tight, and quickly got wide open in the middle of the end zone, making the easy catch to cap things off. His one non-scoring catch was a short sideline reception on a first down. It looked like he and Wilson had finally hooked up for a longer TD, but after doing a great job of getting open and then dragging his toe to stay in bounds, Metcalf dropped the ball as he went down.

2019 Week 7 vs BAL (9 / 4 / 53 / 0 rec)

Metcalf saw a huge amount of targets (9), showing how important he can be to the offense. Unfortunately, the results were mixed, and he played the goat in the end. Some attempts, like his first target, which went off of his fingertips, look to be catchable balls. In those instances, he really does look like a rookie. On others, however, he shows such poise, that it seems just a matter of time before he's a difference maker. The Wilson-to-Metcalf bread-and-butter play (albeit, it's not quite working for them yet) is a toss about 30 yards down the sideline in solo coverage. His second target was one of these, which was a great catch, for 37 yards. Then he drew a pass interference call on a similar play in the second quarter. Still another of basically the same play, this time in the end zone, and a non-call this time, upheld on replay. Late in the game, he made a terrible mistake, fumbling the ball while untouched deep in Seahawks territory, and it was returned for a TD. Metcalf had one more end zone opportunity after the fumble, but the ball was well out of reach. Despite the disappointing overall line, the opportunities are there - and especially with big red zone target Will Dislly out for the season -- for Metcalf to make an impact.

2019 Week 6 vs CLE (5 / 4 / 69 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)

Metcalf's game appears to still be growing. Like the other Seahawks receivers, his volume was not high, but he made the most of his workload, gaining a first down on each of his four catches. He was surprisingly elusive as he sniffed the end zone, bringing it to the 8-yard-line) on an underneath crossing pattern which gave him a lot of room to run. While he saw no end zone looks in this one, he still leads the team in that category, and if Will Dissly's injury is serious, then he's likely to see more going forward. It's encouraging to see that a couple of catches were in stride and gained him yards after the catch, so in a game in which he was never targeted only for his size mismatch, Metcalf was still fairly productive.

2019 Week 5 vs LAR (3 / 2 / 44 / 1 rec)

Metcalf's day was a case of quality over quantity, as he made the most of his three targets. The highlight was in the second quarter. He lined up on the left side, and was turned on the jets to burn past Marcus Peters on a post pattern for an easy catch as he walked into the end zone for a 40-yard score. His missed target was a red zone throw near the goal line, but was thrown too high.

2019 Week 4 vs ARI (4 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Good news/Bad news. The positive here is that three of his four targets were in the end zone, so he's got a pretty important role in this offense. However, all three were more or less uncatchable, two overthrown, and a jump ball in tight coverage but he couldn't get both hands on it.

2019 Week 3 vs NO (6 / 2 / 67 / 0 rec)

Metcalf had his chances in this one, but also took a firm back seat to Tyler Lockett. His first catch was a big one in double coverage no less, for 54 yards, but unfortunately closed out the half with the clock at zero. Outside of the one big play, Metcalf did not see many opportunities. With the team playing from behind, Wilson latched on to Lockett much more.

2019 Week 2 vs PIT (7 / 3 / 61 / 1 rec)

Let's say this again, shall we: Metcalf, for the most part, did not look like a rookie out there. On the first play from scrimmage, he worked the defender expertly on the sideline, coming back for a slightly underthrown ball, and an easy first down. He was not targeted for a while after that, and in the 2-minute drill, finally reminded us that he is a rookie after all, when his second offensive Pass Interference call in as many games stalled the drive. In the second half, he really used his size advantage. After a short mid-field catch, he manhandled the smaller D players for extra yards. Coverage was tight on him all game, but he did a beautiful job tracking the ball on his TD catch. It came over his shoulder in the end zone for a 28 yard score.

2019 Week 1 vs CIN (6 / 4 / 89 / 0 rec)

Metcalf mad a splash in his NFL debut. He did not get on the score sheet, but did become Russell Wilson favourite target, and deservedly so. Metcalf looked not only dependable, but also showed off some acrobatics, catching the ball in traffic and on the run for a big gain of 25, which set up a touchdown the following play. Perhaps most importantly, he made a lot his catches look very easy. Metcalf also contributed by drawing a pass interference call in the end zone. Oh, and he was also called for offensive pass interference. Win some, lose some.
