Miami said they were going to stop the run in fact they have one of the best run defenses in the league. If you read anything during the week leading up to the game in their fan forums or listened to Shannon sharpe on nfl network yesterday he said the same thing about the run defense.
In other words this was a day when we needed big yards in the passing game I would take a 90 QB rating and 300 yards and three touch downs knowing this was a game in which Russell Wilson was going to be dared to win it. It is time for this to happen. If the coaching staff is doing this then they need to change. If they feel he is not ready then we are not ready to take the next step forward which means another 500 record and based on what I saw today we could be 7-9 or 8-8 with our remaining schedule.
Here's the thing. Maybe Russell can audible out of some running plays, into some passing plays. Perhaps more than other rookie QB's can. But if Darrell Bevell is constantly sending in 2 RB, 1 TE personnel; or 2 TE, 2 RB; or 2 TE, 1 RB, 2 WR, there's only so much Russell can do.
If we wanted Russell to throw for a ton of yards today, than Darrell Bevell needed to send in 3 WR, 4 WR, 5 WR personnel groupings that would allow Russell to do that.
