Found October 24, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:

The Seahawks responded to comments from 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and his belief that Seattle’s defensive backs were overly physical with San Francisco’s wide receivers in the Thursday night game, to the point he intended on speaking with the league. You’re supposed to be happy after you win a football game, right? I’m not big for media anyway. That’s just who he is, I guess, since they won the football game. It’s obnoxious to me since they won the football game. We play a physical sport. – Seahawks CB Brandon Browner, on 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh Harbaugh said Friday he felt Seattle’s defensive backs were pushing the rules on the amount of contact allowed downfield and making it difficult for receivers Michael Crabtree, Randy Moss and Kyle Williams to break free. Seattle coach Pete Carroll didn’t agree. “I just looked at the film. I heard about the comments and wanted to see what was the point, and I thought it was a very normal game,” Carroll said Monday. “I thought our guys played really hard and tough, and they did too, and that was it. I don’t know what the reference was about. I just hope it doesn’t go any farther, like to the league. There is no need for it to.” Browner went on to say ”I just went out there and did my thing, I Didn’t get any penalties called. I thought I played a good game from that aspect.” It seems like the Seahawks young defensive backs are beginning to worry teams in the NFL with their tough play.  Both Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are no joke in the defensive backfield. They are tough as nails and showing it, even in the media.

A Tale of Two Halves

Last Thursday’s road game against the 49ers was supremely frustrating to watch.  The Seahawks looked awful, and that’s led to a lot of fans voicing opinions of the “fire coach X and/or bench player Y” variety.  That’s understandable, but I think it’s premature to be calling for changes that drastic.  Right now, the Seahawks are 3-0 at home and 1-3 on the road, with...
