Cam was right.
Pete Carroll was instructing Wagner during the timeout before the play. I wonder if Pete Carroll told Wagner to shoot that gap.
That's nonsense. As I showed a few days ago, what he did in the playoffs that year was superior to anything done by either Antwain Smith OR Corey Dillon. He's was superb.
Still waiting for Harry to break a single tackle for a nice YAC play or make one contested catch in the endzone. For someone that got by on his physicality and jump ball ability in college he has shown next to none of it so far. I do like that Cam is trying to force the issue and has his back when he messes up.
Gilmore had a rough night. Teams including the Pats had no business passing on Metcalf and he took it to the best CB in football last night.
Agreed on Harry. Also defenders have managed on several occasions to lunge at his feet and ankles through a blocker to take him down, sort of lucky plays defensively.He showed some of that physicality last year. My guess is that the shoulder injury is limiting him physically right now.
But Wagner knew where Newton was going.
"That ball's going right," safety Jamal Adams said after the game, relaying what Wagner told the defense in the huddle. "That ball was going straight right."
So Wagner made the call for Seattle's defensive line to slant in that direction. That put L.J. Collier, lined up at right defensive end, in perfect position to bring down Newton after splitting two blockers. Newton said afterward that he should have bounced outside instead of running straight into traffic that safety Lano Hill helped create when he took on fullback Jakob Johnson off the edge.
"They were running the same thing all game," Collier said. "Bobby came to us before that and said they were going to run the same play and that we were going to slant on it just to go with it. I really just followed my captain and went with him and we came up with a big-time play. So really, credit to [defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr.], Bobby and the rest of the defense."
True, but do you think Sony can bounce back this season, realistically? Or is he a JAG at this point
