You're right, they beat us DOWN! No Mercy! The Seahawks was the bowling ball and we were the pins in the strike zone. We have to find a way to be physical on offense. The Packers during the Farve tenure did the same thing to us.

They were more physical. I'm not sure how to fix that.
We need another WR who can play against their BIG corners.
Seriously, their entire team looked ripped...who knew Sherman @ 6'3" could stay with VD stride-for-stride on a deep sideline pass. Normally, VD would have at least a 5 yard cushion and have to come back for an underthrown CK deep ball.
To me, that will involve personnel and team culture. I have some ideas, but is part of a bigger discussion. I think is hard to turn it around with what we have right now. What I am thinking about involves a major rejig and rethink.
In the meantime, let's see whether we can develop the new players we got especially the wideouts and see how we play as a team with this new unit. But, one thing for sure we will need to instill a new mindset into the team.
If you look at the Seahawks, the type of guys they like are quite different to ours by and large. We are far more specific and put quite a heavy weighting on personality. They are far more relaxed in that regard. They don't mind taking a chance as part of their culture and allow their guys to be themselves far more. Let me give you an example, if Vernon was a draft prospect today and if he was like the way he used to be when he first came into the league, under the Harbaugh Era, I seriously doubt we would draft him. If you get my drift, I guess what I am saying and sensing is we may lack a certain edge in terms of attitude and the way we play football. I don't want to go too deep into it unless you guys like to discuss it.
