Week 14 MVP’s
The Seahawks did what they have been doing in the second half of the season – wear the offense down with Marshawn Lynch, take some chances in the passing game and finally letting Marshawn Lynch close it out.
Seattle is 6-7 and head to Chicago next week to take on a Bears team that was hit by Tebowmania in Week 14.
In an impressive and efficient performance on both sides of the ball it was a tad difficult to determine this week’s Offensive & Defensive Game Balls. So here we go!
WR Doug Baldwin – Ya, it would have been easy to give it to Marshawn this week – he’s the man. But Baldwin’s punt block to set up a touchdown set the tone for the game right away. His seven catches for 93 yards and a touchdown didn’t hurt either.
Baldwin’s stamp was all over this game and therefore receives my Week 15 Offensive Game Ball. Enjoy it Doug – Marshawn is going to own this column for the rest of the season.
CB Brandon Browner – In his first NFL season after four years in the CFL, he now has a team-high five interceptions after picking off the first pass of the third quarter on Monday night.
Browner has four interceptions in the last three games and was a total headache for Brandon Lloyd all night long.
Ya, I guess that I am kind of buyin what John Gruden was selling on the ESPN Broadcast.
Brandon you just had more exposure in your last two games than you have had in the rest of your football life combined!
Relax, and enjoy this week’s Defensive Game Ball.
Honorable Mention to LB K.J. Wright. He’s turning into a legitimate football player. He’s going to have a nice career in the NFL if he keeps doing what he’s doing.
Kudo’s to the Seahawks front office for finding guys like, Browner, Kam Chancellor, K.J. Wright, Doug Baldwin, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas. Plus roster moves. The Red Bryant position switch, the Clemons and Branch moves, and resigning LeRoy Hill.
I could go on and on. I’m very very proud of this Seahawks defense. I’m very proud of Pete Carroll and John Schneider for developing players they can work with in the Pete Carroll system.
Steven Jackson 20 carries 66 yards. Yes he had 1 big 3 yard catch that went for a big gain. But the defense still beat him up.
Jackson must really hate getting on the plan to Seattle.
