ORTNER’S ORDERS - ‘A student of the game’: QB lets it fly for Seahawks

Published: Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 04:22 PM.

"I love the new offense it's the best ever," Ortner said. "It works, and it's hard for the other teams to keep up.”

Just to show how fast the Seahawks move, last week against the Buccaneers, the Seahawks went 81 yards in five plays in 58 seconds for the score.

"We practice the way we play," Ortner said. "And it gets easier every week."

Although Ortners' stats were good last week, he said, "There was something I could have done better. I made some mistakes, some things I need to work on."

Topping the list is "making better reads and staying calm.”

However, he admits it’s hard to keep cool when the defense is closing in.

As for getting ready for a game, Ortner said he doesn't do anything special, but he looks to the coaches for guidance.
