Despite 2-0 Start, Seahawks Unhappy With Execution

Posted: Updated:
RENTON, Wash. (AP) - They're 2-0 coming off an impressive performance the entire nation got to see and Pete Carroll is still not satisfied.
   
The Seattle Seahawks' offensive execution has left plenty to be desired.
   
Penalties and a sluggish run game hampered the Seahawks in the opener against Carolina. In Week 2 against the 49ers, it was again problems with penalties, but this time it was the Seahawks pass game that was deemed lacking.
   
Making those fixes could become more difficult if starting left tackle Russell Okung is out for a significant period. Okung was getting a second opinion on his injured toe Wednesday and Carroll has ruled him out for Sunday's game against Jacksonville.
   
Paul McQuistan will slide from left guard to left tackle against the Jaguars with James Carpenter starting at guard.
