"12" (1RB, 2WR, 2TE) has been used on 53 plays (54.7% pass, 45.3% run)
"21" (2RB, 2WR, 1TE) has been used on 40 plays (47.5% pass, 52.5% run)

"20" (2RB, 3WR) has been used on 4 plays (100.0% pass)
"01" (0RB, 4WR, 1TE) has been used on 3 plays (100.0% pass)
"23" (2RB, 3TE) has been used on 1 play (100.0% run)

The Seahawks' offense has passed on 60.7% of their offensive plays. Below is a breakdown of Matt Hasselbeck's performance out of each personnel grouping:

"11" (1RB, 3WR, 1TE): 35-of-57 (61.4%) for 353 yards, 2 TDs, 2 INTs, 5 QB sacks for -26 yards (76.1 passer rating)
"12" (1RB, 2WR, 2TE): 16-of-26 (61.5%) for 184 yards, 2 INTs, 3 sacks for -20 yards (50.8 passer rating)
"21" (2RB, 2WR, 1TE): 9-of-18 (50.0%) for 156 yards and 2 INTs (40.3 passer rating)
"22" (2RB, 1WR, 2TE) : 6-of-10 (60.0%) for 36 yards, 1 QB sack for -5 yards (67.0 passer rating)
"13" (1RB, 1WR, 3TE): 4-of-4 (100.0%) for 32 yards and 1 TD (139.6 passer rating)
"10" (1RB, 4WR): 2-of-4 (50.0%) for 6 yards (56.3 passer rating)
"20" (2RB, 3WR): 3-of-4 (75.0%) for 27 yards (92.7 passer rating)
"01" (0RB, 4WR, 1TE): 2-of-3 (66.7%) for 20 yards and 1 TD (125.0 passer rating)

With 3WR+, Hasselbeck is 42-of-68 (61.8%) for 403 yards, 3 TDs, 2 INTs for a 80.1 passer rating. Hasselbeck has been sacked 5 times when there are more than 3 WRs on the field.

When the Seahawks empty the backfield, Hasselbeck is 12-of-17 for 95 yards and 2 TDs, a passer rating of 123.4. Hasselbeck was sacked once, with an untouched San Diego Chargers linebacker Brandon Siler getting to #8 for a 7-yard loss and a safety in Week 3.

Jeremy Bates' offense is going to use a lot of two-tight end sets, which means a lot of single-back formations. Removing kneel-downs, the Seahawks gained 117 yards on 29 running plays out of "11" personnel, with one touchdown. Out of "12" personnel, the Seahawks have 24 carries for 103 yards (4.3 per), and have 3 carries for 0 yards out of the two other single-back personnel packages.

With two running backs, the Seahawks have 29 running plays for 109 yards and a touchdown. On the six plays that Quinton Ganther was the lead-blocker, Seattle gained 24 yards, with one negative run. With Michael Robinson the lead-blocker, the Seahawks have gained 72 yards on 18 carries, with six negative plays.

Both of Seattle's rushing touchdowns belong to Hasselbeck, one on a sneak (out of a 2-RB, 3-TE grouping) and one on a scramble out of "11" personnel.
