Personally i think thats whats going to happen here, other then Seattle isnt exactly limping, but I dont think they really understand what Manning and that offense can do to them. Sherman is used to covering receivers smaller then. I dont think hes going to look like the greatest db against a receiver his size, faster, and more physical then him.
Do you think our defense, if we made it past Seattle with a healthy Bowman, could have stopped Manning? I think we could have slowed him down enough and we could have won. Now I think Seattle with their speed on the Dline and LOB is equal to, if not better, than our D. (My friend said before the game he heard Eric Davis say Seattle has the better D). As much as I hate Seattle, their D can contain Manning. It's up to their Russel and Lynch to help them.
Sherman, no matter how much we may hate him, is way better than Brock or Brown, and it's not even close.
