Seattle’s Tampa-2 style D is built around lean, quick twitch defenders that have missed just 7 games via starters with 4 coming via CB Browner’s 4 game suspension as the Seahawks have the league’s best secondary. The LB unit is solid with Wagner and Hill locking down the middle and they are very mobile. The Seahawks DL is designed to be aggressive and they accept giving up yards on the ground (4.5 ypc) to get to the QB (#14 sacks by). SEA has my #8 ST’s unit this year thanks to one of the best returners in Leon Washington.
Washington paid a steep price for Griffin but it has been more than worth it. His 8 gms of 100+ QBR are the most by a WAS QB since ’91 (Mark Rypien). Griffin is just the 2nd rookie QB selected for to the Pro Bowl (Marino) that isn’t an injury replacement. RB Morris is only the 5th WAS RB to tally 1,300 yds rushing ever. Last year WAS had 8 different OL combinations due to injury but they had the same through the first 14 games which as been vital for both rookies success. The Skins system excels in spreading the ball around as shown in the ydg/ypc totals. Garcon is the most important as the team is 8-1 with him and 1-5 without him with Moss being the slot WR. Prior to the bye WAS allowed 398 ypg and 28 ppg but since then its 361 ypg and 24 ppg as they adjusted to the early season injuries. The sum is greater than the parts for the #30 D that hasn’t been put in bad spots thanks to Griffin. The strength of the D is the LB unit thanks to Fletcher’s leadership and Kerrigan/Jackson improving since the bye. The secondary is a major weak point that has only faced one top 10 off (DAL) since October 7th. WAS has my #24 ST’s unit due to below avg return units.
Griffin had miraculous numbers for a rookie, throwing 3,200 yards with 20 touchdowns and just 5 interceptions, a 65.6% completion percentage, and a 102.4 quarterback rating. Of course, operating that pistol offense keeps defenses guessing, and allows him to utilize his athleticism. He also ran the ball for 815 yards and 7 touchdowns, including a long on the year of 76 yards.
