Dion Bailey admits to making huge error in Seattle Seahawks loss

Published Add your comment

The Seattle Seahawks were so close to making a winning start to the 2015 season, before succumbing to a crushing overtime loss against the St. Louis Rams.

Seahawks Heartbreak

After Jimmy Graham hauled in his first touchdown as a Seattle player, the 'Hawks looked certain to start the season 1-0, only to see a slip at a critical moment allow the Rams to tie up the game on a last minute TD.

It was young safety Dion Bailey who made the crucial mistake, and the second year player admitted to his big error after the game.

Costly Mistake

Bailey was speaking to Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times following the loss, where he admitted to the error and stated that he has to do better if he wants to keep his place in the team.

“It’s just something that just can’t happen,” Bailey said, speaking in hushed tones with a towel covering his face. “I was just too flat-footed. My foot stuck in the turf when I tried to open up. At that point, I’ve got to tackle him. Just tackle him and live to fight another day.”

“I’ve got to go 100 percent on my opportunities, and I missed a big one today,” Bailey admitted. “I’ve got to learn from it and represent my family name better next week.”

Chancellor Needed

Bailey only played because All-Pro star Kam Chancellor is currently in the middle of a holdout that has now stretched into the regular season. Chancellor's presence was sorely missed  and it was extremely evident, with the Rams targetting Bailey several times.

Whatever Chancellor wants, surely the Seahawks now have to give it to him. Because the other outcome is a lot worse if it ends in more costly mistakes from the incredibly green Bailey.
