Seahawks Redskins Rookie Showdown
 
Let's get this started!

I am nervous about this one.


Good read but not to calm your nerves.

Seattle has a pretty good oline and Lynch, I think it will come down to whether or not we can stop their run consistently and force Wilson to win the game on the road. Our offense will be able to put up points, depending on how well our defense can get off the field.

Nothing in the stats or schedule info will calm your nerves either. These two teams parallel each other, with the exception that they have the cb's that we would die for.

In common opponent games (which there aren't many) They beat the Cowboys 27-7, beat @Carolina 16-12, and split with the Rams.

I do think you have to definitely just discount the Arizona and Buffalo games as aberrations, and even the SF game in Seattle was due in large part to the crowd, and the 49ers not being able to be coherent in the first half of the game.

That said, Seattle is a tough team, and they figured out a lot about road wins against Chicago and Buffalo, so they will come in confident. I don't expect a 200 yard game from Morris so this game will fall on Griffin, Paulsen and Cooley. Garcon and the WR's will still be depended on for their blocking, and stretching the field. But Seattle will be ready for our base pistol formation and any zone read plays.

As for our defense, I think they are up to the task, and the one good thing is that I think we can keep their TE's in check. I don't think the blitz heavy scheme that worked against Dallas will work against Wilson, so I hope Haslett did a lot of homework Monday and Tuesday.

Did I mention this is going to be a tough game? One big advantage is homefield, the west to east flight is the hardest to make, remember they lost to Miami in Miami right before there win streak started. I also think it's good that St. Louis played them tough, we can use that tape especially in prepping for them.

I don't expect our offense to put up a lot of points. Seattle just hasn't allowed it in any of their games. The most they have allowed is 28 points, but generally they have allowed in the teens. And they won't be unprepared for our offense, they held Carolina and SF to 12 and 13 points respectively. And they only gave up 23 to NE. We need to figure out how Miami and Detroit scored 24 and 28. I definitely think we need to be able to score 21 or more points to win the game.

Skittles defense is vunarable to the run and they are not the same team at home vs the road. Haslett gonna have to mix it up on defense.

Being at Fedex is a huge advantage; mainly because it is not in SEA.

Their WRs don't scare me at all. If we shut down the run, I think we're good. No team has shown they can stop us offensively and until someone does, then I have no reason to believe we won't score on them. Wasn't Cleveland a top ten scoring defense? We all know how that worked out...

The best thing about our offense, which is awesome by the way, is that we can and do attack all the areas of the field. This game may very well be dominated by mid length passes, which means the TE's and Morgan/Moss should have big games and if they do, we will win.

Another point of similarity is turnovers. We are +17 (31 takeaway/14 giveaways), they are +14 (31/18).

These two teams are so similar it is amazing. And both young. Remember, we took Trent Williams, they took Okung. and both have built up in similar manners. I doubt this is the last playoff meeting between these two teams.

Another thing in our favor, RG3 has another week to heal and get that knee better.

Exactly what I was thinking, around low 20's like 21 or 24. But that defense does play differently on the road, obviously the home field advantage has a lot to do with teams not being able to score on them.

I wonder if we'll see the removal of the brace. I keep wondering how long he needs to wear that if he's past the healing time for that type of sprain.

I was thinking that the Griffin/Wilson match-up could be the next Brady/Manning rivalry. Since we will be winning the division for the foreseeable future, they could meet up regularly if Seattle does the same.

I think a real X Factor here is MS. I am hoping his playoff experience trumps Pete Carroll.
