Ok, so I had to post this but I have no idea how to get a video of the play and post it here. Hopefully someone who does will do so..

So I'm watching the replay of the Seahawks/Bears game and I saw something that about floored me. On the 4th quarter 97 yard drive to take the lead, It's 1st & 10 from the Seahawks 45 with 2:01 on the clock. The play is another zone read play with Wilson keeping and running to the left. Now, take a look at what happens to #33 Tillman on this play. It's as nasty of a stiffarm as anything I've seen from Lynch, shoving Tillman to the ground before picking up another 5 yards and getting out of bounds.

If Tillman makes the tackle, he holds us to a 3 yard game and we're at the 2 minute warning. After the play is completed, you can see Tillman jumping up and down in anger for getting schooled in the open field.

As such, and in honor of Marshawn's baby stiffarm, I deem this the baby baby stiffarm. It's a thing of absolute beauty.

*Edit - here's a screencapture of the event. Hopefully someone can .gif the whole thing, or post the video.

Oh I saw that too! My friend and I was laughing so hard!

I don't remember Tillman being mad... if I remember right, Tillman was actually laughing in embarrassment in more of a "he got me, he got me lol" type of deal. Correct me if im wrong. Ha.

Someone help the newb out, wood'ja? :2:

I recall the play but i don't remember seeing that baby stiff arm. Go figure.

Side note. Is Russell the only offensive player that doesn't wear the lime green cleats?

That was straight up filthy by Russell. Tillman's reaction is awesome.

While I would term that stiff arm as efficient, I feel the term " baby" is inappropriate. We all know that RW's arms are longer than his legs.

It was nice, but im not excited about RW stiff arming anyone, ESPECIALLY with his throwing arm. Its all fun and awesome until hes out.

Too bad Rice couldn't deliver the wood to Peppers, or it would have been an easy first down. But, I'm not hating on Rice, as Peppers is a hard guy to block.

Awesome and hilarious. Almost as funny is how Rice wanted no part of a stampeding Peppers. He spun away (smartly avoiding serious injury potential) but still made enough contact to slow Peppers' momentum and let DangeRuss get out of bounds.

I loved the stiff arm but there was one thing I loved more and that was

the pickup of the fumble. I know that if this play gets reviewed the ball is deemed out of bounds as it hit just barely out of bounds but nobody knew that at the play. Wilson finished every play in this game - on the read options he all out went for it without the ball to keep defenses guessing as long as possible, he followed right behind lynch and when the ball bounced out he was there that one time when it was possibly needed.

he played all out all game long and I loved it. I will give someone else credit for the same thing and it is the gw indy game where luck throws that pass knows it was the last option and starts sprinting upfield to lay a block if needed. These rookies are laying it all on the line for their teams and it is fantastic to see. Maybe this is the biggest advantage of the $70 million rookie contracts having dissapeared.........

As an NCSU alum, I have been following Russell since his freshman year. Get used to seeing that stiff arm. Russell has sneaky elusiveness. He doesn't look fast, but he usually makes decisive cuts and makes excellent use of that stiff arm to get where he wants to go. I'm hoping the Seahawks make some noise this year with Russell at the helm. You guys got the steal of the draft in my opinion and I was excited to see Pete open up the competition. :D

First - Go Pack! Hopefully Doeren will bring back the excitment we first had when "The Chest" was hired....

Secondly -- seen it before as well but I don't like the increased amount of the running game with RW. Remember his first year at NC State was very much the running attack game even though it was more of a straight on running type like GT. He got injured twice that year including the bowl game against Rutgers in which we were crushing them in the first half but lost since RW didn't play the second half.......

I remember Russell getting hurt as well, but I also remember him being more judicious with his decisions while running as he gained more experience at the college level. In the same manner, I think he has shown a maturity with his run decisions as he has gained NFL experience. His ability to learn and correct at such an incredible pace is one of the most astonishing gifts he has. I don't foresee this offense turning into a tremendous amount of read option, but a nice mixture creates just enough hesitation in the defense to allow Russell to pick the weakness he wants to attack. I'm looking forward to seeing him take a second crack at the divisional teams. Oh yea, Go Pack!!! And, Go Hawks!!!
