Week 11 MVP’s
The Seattle Seahawks have won two straight games! On Sunday, the defense showed up and put the clamps down on Sam Bradford, a red-hot Steven Jackson and the St. Louis Rams in St. Louis. That makes two road wins in their last three – a rare feat for the notoriously brutal road Hawks.
For once, the Defensive Game Ball was an easy decision and the Offensive Game Ball was a little more difficult to determine. If I could give the whole team a Game Ball I would but there is not enough pigskin to go around on Dave B’s shoestring budget.
However, both of these players were runner ups for the Week 11 Game balls!
RB Marshawn Lynch – It took Lynch a while to get going on Sunday but when the Hawks put the game in his hands he did not disappoint. A shout out has to go to Tom Cable and the Offensive Line for making Lynch look so good.
Lynch rumbled for 88 yards and a score on 27 carries on Sunday – a heavy workload once again for the emerging rushing threat in Seattle.
Marshawn has now scored in six straight games! Amazing. Lynch’s hard running style has allowed the Hawks to close out the game in two straight weeks and for the second straight week; Lynch has been rewarded with a Game Ball!
Congratulations Marshawn, you are a worthy recipient!
DE Chris Clemons – Number 91 came to play didn’t he? He terrorized the Rams all game long and registered three huge sacks and forced two fumbles! Clemons was a beast on Sunday and may just hear his name called later on this week as the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.
Until then, Clemons will just have to bask in the glory of receiving Dave B’s Seattle Seahawks Week 11 Defensive Game Ball.
