This is exactly right. This season, we are built in a way to beat a defense like Seattle's that relies on speed and movement for success.
Aaron Curry is big, but the corners are tiny and won't be much help in force situations. The other LBs are on the smaller side, and Hill won't be playing.
The Hawk's D line relies on stunts and sliding to get penetration and pressure, and will be vulnerable to straight ahead and zone blocks.
And a big part of their scheme is edge pressure from Kearney and Tapp. If we can run successfully and only throw 25 times they have less of a chance to disrupt the offense.
We can definitely win this game!!!
