Found January 04, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:

According to Brian Tinsman of Redskins.com, cornerback Josh Wilson is ready to ‘ball’ this weekend, against the team that drafted him in 2007.“We just went out there and balled,” he said in the locker room after Sunday’s game. “We’ve been playing like this for the last seven weeks. We knew we had to win eleven in a row to be able to accomplish our goal and we’re doing it.After an emotional victory at home, the Redskins capped off their eleventh consecutive win with a collaborative effort. Wilson is first among his fellow defensive backs in four vital categories: passes defensed, forced fumbles, defensive touchdowns, and leads the whole unit in recovering fumbles (2).In 2007, the Redskins traveled to Seattle for their Wild-Card showdown and gave a lackluster performance in front of Seattle’s home crowd. It wasn’t as embarrassing as it was boring. Only a rookie then, Wilson contributed by recording two tackles and gained a lifetime supply of unforgettable playoff experience. As a veteran now, Wilson will unload the knowledge that he obtained on the three babies (Morris, RG3, Robinson) that will significantly affect the outcome of this game.Without Brian Orakpo or Adam Carriker, the Redskins have adjusted well – from allowing 27.6 points per game to only 20 after their bye week.It will be interesting to see how the Seahawks prepare for the game on Sunday and how they will utilize and maneuver the other Wilson, Russell, around the likes of London Fletcher and Ryan Kerrigan.Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
