We'll need to put Cooley/Yoder/'Zo Alexander/Portis out there for help. Kerney vs Heyer is our biggest concern from a matchup perspective. Luckily though, Kerney would not be coming from Collins' blind side. Fumbles are a major concern when a DE is coming around the blind side on an immobile QB. As long as Collins can see Kerney coming, the probability for fumlbing goes down. I can deal with the occasional sack, but what kills you in the NFL is turnovers. We need to keep Kerney in check, Collins needs to have a clock in his head, keep an eye on Kerney, and step up in the pocket consistently.

Collins' immobility + Kerney vs Heyer = The highest chance of Seattle causing turnovers.

And we can't forget that as our attention turns to Kerney, Samuels needs to hold up in one-on-ones on the other side.

Re: What's Our Weakness?

I would echo's Schneed's point re: pass protection. JC and TC were stripped far too often this year. If we win the next 2 games and face GB in 3 weeks, Heyer is going to have his hands full against Patrick Kerney (14.5 sacks), Greg Ellis (12.5 sacks), and Aaron Kampman (12 sacks). Yes, we can keep Cooley in to block, but to the extent that we do so, we limit our passing attack.

I also think we may have trouble with our secondary. What we have done in the last few weeks is nothing short of miraculous, but we have yet to face a strong passing attack supported by a full cast. The Bears' passing offense isn't exactly scary, the Vikes don't know what "passing" means, no team could pass on that windy night in the Meadowlands, and the Cowboys were missing T.O. I'm concerned that, going against Seattle, our defense might slip a bit. Again, I emphasize that I do not mean to take anything away from the amazing 4-win run, but I think we might have trouble against Seattle without Taylor and Rogers.

Re: What's Our Weakness?

Does Alexander pass block? or is he strictly in on the jumbo package?

Honestly, a Tight End lined up on Kerney's side should be good enough to nullify the pass rushing advantage. If we force him to line up in a seven technique, as opposed to a five, Collins will have more than enough time to throw any football, provided the receivers get open.

**A seven technique refers to an end lined up outside the tight end, and a five refers to an end lined up on the outside shoulder of the tackle.

Re: What's Our Weakness?

Our greatest weakness could be a defensive scheme.

Remember those crappy games against passing teams when Williams had the secondary play "off" so far to avoid big plays?...that sucked

That is my greatest concern.

other weakness is the Oline (right side)

Wk 08 - BYE
Wk 09 - CLE (#24 passing D) - 318yd, 2TD, 1INT
Wk 10 - SF (#22 passing D) - 278yd, 2TD, 1INT
Wk 11 - CHI (#27 passing D) - 337yd, 2TD, 0INT
Wk 12 - STL (#21 passing D) - 249yd, 1TD, 1INT
Wk 13 - PHI (#18 passing D) - 187yd, 2TD, 1INT
Wk 14 - ARI (#28 passing D) - 272yd, 4TD, 0INT
Wk 15 - CAR (#17 passing D) - 274yd, 1TD, 0INT
Wk 16 - BAL (#20 passing D) - 199yd, 2TD, 2INT
Wk 17 - ATL (#23 passing D) - 353yd, 3TD, 1INT

The Redskins finished #16 in passing defense (in terms of yardage allowed), and we're actually tied for 8th in passing scores allowed.

Note that the Seagulls faced exactly TWO opponents ranked in the top half of the NFL in passing defense this year. The first was week 1 where they beat a sluggish Tampa team, the second was a shutout beating they took at the hands of the Steelers.

So no, I am not terribly scared of Bobby Engram. Or Deion Branch, or DJ Hackett or Nate Burleson. Even against extremely poor teams, Hasselhoff is good for at least one pick. Hell, he's only had a single game this year where he didn't throw at least one. I think he can be bullied into making a lot of mistakes.

Excellent Research!!
Thanks!

Either way, SEA has 2 DEs that have both had great years. Heyer and Samuels have their work cut out for them. At times like these, I'm glad we have Portis to help in pass protection.
This is where Collins shines vs Campbell.

Collins has great timing with late releases by RB who are held in for pass coverage...dont be suprised to see a ton of this.

Re: What's Our Weakness?

I'd have to say that our biggest weakness is consitancy. We can't afford dropped passes, blown coverage and missed blocking assignments if we expect to win. Our entire team is going to have to bring thier A-game throughout the playoffs. If we don't get on a roll early, I think we are going to be in trouble. Collins is going to have to have another great day, and I think he will. I don't think he'll be affected by the loud crowd, or the pass rush. I do wish he had some legs though.

remember just a couple of weeks ago we had to stop osi uminyeora and michael strahan and Chris Samuels and Stephon Heyer did a good job there.
