Yes, the Saints got away with 2 illegal “pick” plays in the 4th

The Seattle Seahawks lost to the New Orleans Saints this past Sunday and on two separate occasions the Saints got away with illegal “pick” plays. Now, I normally don’t like discussing penalties, but after watching the game closely I couldn’t ignore how much these two plays impacted the overall flow of the game. Before we

How Earl Thomas’ range and intelligence leads the Seahawks

In a purely defensive battle last Sunday, Seattle Seahawks’ free safety Earl Thomas was one of the premier stars to behold. He was all over the field making plays and nearly came away with two interceptions. Versus the Arizona Cardinals, Thomas lined up as the deep free safety, but also played a fair bit of

The most casual sack of Cliff Avril’s career

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, coming off a dominant performance against the Atlanta Falcons, was no worse for the wear versus the Arizona Cardinals. He finished the game with 2.5 sacks, six quarterback hits, and two pass deflections. This was easily his best game of the season. As I was going through the game

The matchup between Richard Sherman and Julio Jones that had everything

Controversy, a dominant first half by the home defense, and busted coverages in the third quarter, defined the Week 6 matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons. All three of those things involved two of the NFL’s most elite players: Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones and Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. In the end, Jones

How Cliff Avril disrupted the Falcons’ offense

The Seattle Seahawks played in another wild one on Sunday, blowing a 14-point halftime lead before rumbling back for a 26-24 victory over the red hot Atlanta Falcons. The first half was a defensive domination by the Seahawks with much of the pressure on quarterback Matt Ryan created by defensive end Cliff Avril. He finished

Kirk Cousins’ fake completely fooled Jimmy Smith

Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins faced their Beltway rival in the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday. With the Redskins’ obvious deficiencies in run defense, many expected the Ravens to stick to the ground to move the chains. This looked to be the case early as Terrance West collected 60 yards on his first five carries.

Russell Wilson’s perfect lob to Jimmy Graham

Before we move on to the Seattle Seahawks-Atlanta Falcons this weekend, I wanted to take a step back and look at the offensive tape from the New York Jets game back in Week 4. Instead of posting this in my usual video format, I decided to do a write-up of my favorite throw Russell Wilson

How Greg Olsen gained 181 yards without Cam Newton

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen collected 181 yards off of 13 targets and 9 receptions on Monday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was the consensus difference-maker on the field where the Panthers used the flood concept to vertically stretch the Bucs’ defense. In this video breakdown, I explain the flood concept and

Brandon Marshall beat Richard Sherman on Sunday … Barely

Two All-Pro players, Richard Sherman and Brandon Marshall, squared off in MetLife Stadium this past Sunday. Sherman, who covered Marshall for the vast majority of the game, was used in both man coverage as well as in the Seahawks’ Cover 3 defense as the outside cornerback. In this video breakdown, I tracked all 12 targets

Odell Beckham Jr. wins rematch vs Josh Norman

In their first rematch of the 2016 season, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. faced off against Redskins cornerback Josh Norman. Their matchup last season ended with a game suspension and many circled this game on the calendar as one of the big one-on-one’s of the whole year; we weren’t disappointed. The game featured multiple
