Wow! Rookie against rookie. Both of these quarterbacks have shined in their NFL debut season. It was thought that RGIII could be a star, but nobody new how much. On the other hand, it was presumed during off-season that Matt Flynn, who shined in the 2011 season finale of the Packers versus the Lions, would be the starter for the Seahawks. Then, gasp, Old Pete picked Russel Wilson instead.
But it’s not just the quarterbacks that shine in these two offenses. Both have excellent running backs in Alfred Morris and Marshawn Lynch. Lynch was more of a known quantity, but Morris? Another Washington rookie — but he seemed to come out of the blue (not out of the blue, exactly. He came from Florida Atlantic.)
Washington will have to prepare for Seattle’s ability to put up big points. 58 points against the Cards, 50 against the Bills, and 42 against the 49ers. Those are impressive numbers.
Another scary aspect of Seattle is their secondary. Sherman is a tough and talented cornerback although, a little hot-headed. He was the one that started talking smack to Brady as Mr. Bundchen tried to walk off the field when the Patriots lost to the Seahawks. You don’t have to like the guy, which I don’t, but you do have to prepare for him.
So here is what it really comes down to for me. I don’t like Pete Carroll. I don’t like Sherman’s attitude. I don’t like the Fail Mary that got them here and cost my Packers the 2nd seed. On the other hand, I do like RGIII, I do like the fact that Washington is in the playoffs because they beat two teams that I despise — the New York Football Giants, and America’s team, the Cowboys.
