If you were concerned about right tackle Germain Ifedi as a potential issue along Seattle's offensive line, nothing in Saturday night's 24-14 loss to the Chargers would make you feel any better. The 2016 first-round pick got bulled over on one play and was beaten badly off the edge several times. He also may have gotten away with at least one false start by jumping the snap a split second early, something he did often last year when he led the NFL in penalties. In fairness to Ifedi, he was matched up a few times with Melvin Ingram, who will make a lot of tackles look bad. But it's not as though it'll get much easier when the games start to count. The Seahawks open the regular season at Denver against Von Miller and No. 5 overall pick Bradley Chubb, and they don't have a viable alternative at right tackle to Ifedi. It's a good thing Russell Wilson can get out of trouble better than any NFL quarterback.
