In my story this morning, the Seattle Seahawks could see a replay of last week when they face the Cowboys because of the team’s inability to effectively handle the blitz.
“That would be probably the smart thing to do,” Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said. “If you watched that game, whenever you leave yourself open for things like that, as we always say, it’s a copycat league. And until you prove you can stop it, then somebody’s going to continue to (try to do) that.
“So it just falls right back on us to make sure we’re right with our communication, and all the things we’re trying to do to go along with that.”
The Cowboys have one of the best pass rushers in the game in DeMarcus Ware, who had two sacks against the N.Y. Giants in the season opener.
Jon Machota of the Dalllas Morning News talks with Ware, who says Seattle will use a lot of two tight-end sets to make sure Russell Wilson is protected.
Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com provides more information on defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo, recently added to Seattle’s practice squad.
710 ESPN Seattle’s Liz Mathews talks with Golden Tate, who believes if healthy he could have been a factor on Seattle’s final drive last week against Arizona. “Yeah, obviously just me being a competitor and me wanting to be out there so bad and the camp I had. I felt like – we all would have felt like – I would have made the catch, or some of those catches.”
Every one of the Cowboys’ media contingent that covers the team for ESPN Dallas picks the Cowboys to beat Seattle on the road this week.
Jim Moore of 710 ESPN Seattle is picking the Seahawks over the Cowboys, 24-17. Last week Moore correctly picked Arizona over the Hawks.
Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times writes that you either love or hate “America’s Team”, the Cowboys.
ESPN’s John Clayton wonders if the offenses around the league can keep up with the record-setting pace. In Week I 791 points were scored, an opening-week record.
Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telgram writes that Dallas tight end Jason Witten expects to be more of a factor this week. Witten still is recovering from a lacerated spleen.
