And I’m the farthest guy from the game. I’m all the way in the back. So if a guy maybe has leverage on a block or a guy’s getting beat, I can see it. I can adjust to it.

The Seattle Seahawks’ Big Problem - WSJ
The Seattle Seahawks have stalled. They’re no longer the steamroller that crushed Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl last season and redefined how to defend the pass. At 3-3, they look mortal.
