As far as the Seattle DB's tactics, it isn't actually holding all the time. There is some grabbing at times, but all corners will do some of that. What I notice from Seattle is more strength related. Arm bars to knock a receiver off their route, or hinder progress ... using their bodies in general for the same reason. I think that the Seattle model of CB's will be mirrored by many teams. Strict cover corners are rare, but a Addrealled up (errr ... strong and attentive) player is easier to come by.
What I would do if I was a receiver is swing down right on top of the DB's arm when it is either holding or hindering. If anything it would draw the refs attention to it.
Yep, swing the fist down hard on the forearm every time they do it. That will get pretty sore over the course of the game.
Might even cuase them to keep their hands/arms to themselves for once.
