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.
If we just discuss on personnel first, we need to set a single-minded new direction. Even up to this year's draft, although we did place more emphasis on physicality we are still drafting some small bodies. If Pete Carroll can come up with an idea of using 6'3"+ 220 lbs+ guys for corners and safeties, we can definitely go big too.
Starting with WRs, we go bigger, taller, faster and more physical, think Julio Jones, Roddy White, Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall type guys. (as opposed to our usual smaller 5'10- 6'0" 180-200 lbs picks such as Kyle Williams, AJ Jenkins and Quinton Patton)
RB, go for a power back, essentially a younger, bigger, faster, more explosive and physical version of Marshawn Lynch.(as opposed to our usual 5'7"-5'8" 195-200 lbs smaller backs like Hunter and LMJ)
In terms of draft strategy, go aggressive, trade up and only focus on say 3 high round specific prospects and put lower priorty on stockpiling picks in the short term until we can fill those roles with legit talents.
