Just a hunch on the unsung hero

  • Just a thought I had earlier tonight when people talk about someone unexpectedly stepping up. With all the guys who get attention on our defense who get attention, particularly in the secondary, what if the guy who makes the play that either turns the game for us or secures the win ends up being Maxwell, a guy who only got into the starting lineup due to injury and suspension and then played well enough to keep his job.

  • He has not only played "well enough" he is second only to Sherman in terms of passes defended, interceptions, and passer rating - albeit he has a much lower snap count than Sherman does - for obvious reasons.

  • Maxwell is the 2nd best corner in the nfl and has the numbers to back it up.

    I really dislike how analyst seem to exclude maxwell from the legion of boom and dont talk about him like the elite corner than he is.

    How unfair is it for a nfl team to have the best and 2nd best corner in the league.

  • Unsung heros are guys that are not expected to make an impact, Maxwell is a impact corner, Lane, Walters, Turbin, Falwell, Lockette, or Bowie as a TE that catches a pass or something is what I look at as Unsung. Even Willson could not be considered a unsung guy since he has been a factor in our offense. Miller and Him have been the two guys Wilson will go to if the defense plays to deep and leaves those lanes open.

  • Clinton McDonald (due, in-part to Mebane beasting as well). I'll go bold and say 2.5 sacks for McDonald with a FF that Seattle recovers. I'll even go one further saying his pressure is directly responsible for either an errant pass that is picked off or he tips it and it's intercepted.

    I know, highly unlikely. My other guess would be Luke Willson has at least 3 catches of 25+ and ends up with 100 yards receiving (give or take 10 yards).

    I like the Willson pick he seem due for a break out game

  • This game seems to me, to be on the first three 2012 Draft Picks.

    Manning is not going to attack this secondary. He is too smart. He IS going to attack Bruce Irvin -- with Wes Welker and the RB's. Mark my words. Ya''ll know it's coming.

    I expect Bobby Wagner to understand this and give the proper direction to Bruce, but ... Irvin, this is his time to prove Carrol's faith in him.

    Wilson. They are going to throw the kitchen sink at him, they are going to run blitz, put 8 in the box, spy him, those cagey CB's will use the sideline and force everything to the middle of the field, which will be wide open in the short and medium range. This is where Russell Wilson proves he is a legit NFL QB, in order to win this game he will have to overcome is primary weakness -- throwing down the middle of the field to Miller, Wilson, and his slot receiver.


    If both Irvin and Wilson play great games... Seattle blows Denver out.

    If they have mediocre games (as they have been recently) it's going to be another nail biter.

    If either plays poorly, Denver wins the SB.

  • Not sure he would class as 'unsung' but put Harvin down for a special teams touchdown that is a huge momentum turner.

    On D i pick Malcolm Smith to add to his NFCCG pick with a turnover generating play (probably a FF)

    On O i pick Bailey to be heavily involved in 6OL package and to help spring Beastmode for a 20+ yard TD run

  • TEs have had big games against Donks all year, so I'll go with Miller AND Willson.

  • I just heard on the radio that Denvers kicker only had 2 touchbacks when they played there in Sept.

    Which means if there is wind we should get some run backs.

    Guess who we will have back there?

    Yup.......Mr. Harvin

  • I think it would be foolish of them to allow Percy to have a run back of any kind. Likely a priority for them on ST. The D line and/or the Line-backing corps are where the potential for a standout performance lies for me. Either through constant pressure on Manning or the neutralization of his mid-field assets. I have faith in Thomas,Sherman and Maxwell to make life difficult for the long game. So that leaves the Dink and Dunk or the run game. I think we have the answer to their run game so that leaves the Welker, Decker and some of their lesser receivers on slants and crossing routes. Bobby, Bruce, KJ, Kam and the boys will feature heavily. I will take Irvin as my standout pick.

  • I really think it will be Jermaine Kearse. The Broncos do not have a DB capable of staying with him on his deep go routes.

  • I'll throw one out there that is unexpected.... the much maligned Robert Turbin.

    I can see Turbin coming in for a play or two to spell Beastmode... perhaps on a 2nd and long. With Lynch out... the Denver defense relaxes expecting a pass play and focuses their attention to Harvin in the slot. Instead Seattle sticks with the run game... and for once Turbin slips a tackle and hits the seam resulting in a huge gain...(much like his run against the Saints the got called back).

    He is just a forgotten man in the run game, who I think is capable of hitting a big play at an unexpected time. He could become an unsung hero.

  • I can't get Baldwin out of my mind as the "unsung" hero that comes up big. Maybe it's just my love for the underdog or something, but he has been big for us all season.

    It takes character to win when you get there.
