Seahawks QB Wilson on facing Jets: ‘No doubt’


NFL Rumors: Seattle Seahawks to Resign Tarvaris Jackson as Russell Wilson's Replacement

The Seattle Seahawks are 2-1 after knocking off San Francisco last Sunday 37-18.

Seattle added a run in the eighth on a two-out single by Leonys Martin, a walk to Zunino and Ketel Marte’s RBI single. The Seahawks’ offensive line?

“We eased him into the week so we didn’t have a complete week”, he said. He sprained his right ankle in the opener. In a boat. With Ryan Fitzpatrick. OK?

The Jets lead 3-0 after the first quarter. In my preview piece, I said that Wilson was not going to play and I was wrong on that.

“If I do go on the trip it would be good to go back”.

“I don’t worry about questions about his play”, Bowles said of Fitzpatrick. The Jets rank third in the league defending but have been much softer against the pass. They’re done with him professionally. “At times like this you don’t want to start a snowball effect and that losing streak mentality where people stop caring or something like that”. It’s a challenge enough to go on the road and we try to make it as familiar as possible. That’s what he has to do. He made the types of plays that the Seahawks need him to make: a tough one-handed catch along the sideline against a smaller cornerback, a twisting, leaping catch for 24 yards against a linebacker. That’s a barely competent one, and that falls on head coach Todd Bowles to fix.

“He can’t play any worse”.

Ryan Fitzpatrick will curb his many mistakes.

WR Quincy Enunwa, Jets – Without Eric Decker, the Jets will be relying more on Enunwa to fill the void. Led by Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Bobby Wagner, the Jets’ offense will have its hands full on Sunday. Yes, the season is getting away from them. But that didn’t stop Revis from bristling when Sherman’s name came up.

Fine, then. Let’s talk about Doug Baldwin. Marshall ended the game with 89 yards – including a touchdown – on four catches, the longest of which being a 41-yard catch and run where he flat out beat Sherman.

If there ever was a time for the Jets’ D-line to feast, it’s now.

Howard has averaged 5.6 yards per carry through two games played, but it’s only on 12 carries.

And the Jets believe they have a top-five defense? The Jets trailed at the half 14-10. It’s.583, including the Jets. Yet he will play on, for the 78th consecutive time to begin his career on Sunday.

A week after throwing six interceptions, Fitzpatrick played fairly well through three quarters. The Jets’ 32-31 win over Seattle in 1998 helped bring instant replay back to the National Football League as Vinny Testaverde was credited with a 5-yard touchdown run when only his helmet crossed the goal line. “This is a guy I go way back on, way back to recruiting days (when Carroll was at USC until January 2010)”.

“It is a shock”, Brandon Marshall said. “Matt Forte is a Hall of Famer too”. “I expect more out of our offense”. Tony McDaniel is the likely replacement. Graham sat out Thursday’s practice due to back spasms but participated fully Friday. “You got it?” said Marshall, measuring his words. I don’t like how any of us are playing – him, myself, all of the starters.

Early bye weeks are pretty annoying, unless your quarterback is hobbled and a bevy of other big-name players are making it back from injury.
