This Seattle defense is interesting. They've played the entire season just beyond the legal. Making it a standard, which means that flags don't fly when they hold and push and PI. Obviously they seek to intimidate, to punish, to hurt any receiver in their path. And if possible to put them out of the game. How do you counter that when a natural part of a passing game leaves your receivers always vulnerable?
You counter it with the power passing game.
We saw just a little bit of what the power passing game means when little Wesley Welker knocked Aqib Talib out of the game a couple of weeks ago. Honestly, I'm not sure what the fuss was about after that game. CBs and Safeties hit receivers all day long and It's football, Aqib Talib was hit legally once by our little Wesley Welker and it was the talk on ESPN for for a week
But that hit was legal and it's football and it actually needs to be developed more completely.
Next time we meet Seattle we need to have a developed screen game that features Green, Tamme, Decker, and Julius as blockers while Demarius is the outside "WR/RB".
Next time, we need to have a screen game that features designed cutbacks for Demarius with cutback blocks by Julius. Next time we feature picks with Juluis and Demarius crossing. And more picks all day long.
We have the people to create a power passing game to counter the Seahawks. Anyone notice little Richard going down repeatedly every time he hit Demarius?
