In the NFC Division Wildcard, you must account for the Seattle Seahawks’ MEAT. I know it’s not the flashiest thing to talk about. I will concede that it’s easier to talk about Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson (because we all know flashy quarterbacks win playoff games1). Hell, ESPN has virtually made it a quarterback combine competition. At this point I’m surprised that they haven’t disrobed both of them, and picked a winner based on whether they live up to their imagination. Meanwhile the deciding factor that will easily win the game is being overlooked. The Factor: The Seattle Seahawks have a whole lot of MEAT on defense.   Why is no one talking about the Seattle Seahawks’ shutdown defense, in their upcoming playoff matchup against the Washington Redskins? Now when I say, “MEAT” I’m not sure what image comes to your mind. I would ask you to guess, but I don’t want my inbox over flowing with the images that you would find on the internet. So allow me to tell you and ruin your fantasy. MEAT, refers to intimidating team defense, and the Seahawks have a lot of it (I’m about to stop capitalizing meat because it’s starting to get weird), mainly in the defensive backfield. We know both teams have a good offense. So why do people keep breaking it down who has the better quarterback or running game. As good as both of them are, neither is going to decide the game. This game will be decided by meat. I know the Redskins went on a great 7 game win streak, but they haven’t seen a defense like the Seahawks. Seattle has a ball hawking secondary that knocks back Adderall like a sorority girl trying to win a drinking contest. To make matters worse Brandon Browner is coming back, which means they’ll have a locker full of it. I fully expect the Washington Redskins to lose by two scores. They will be overwhelmed by the Seahawks’ MEAT. Sorry, but I had to capitalize it one more time. MEAT     Michael Vick, Dan Marino, Tony Romo, Randall Cunningham, and Jeff George. All flashy in their own way and never won big. So you can say I was using sarcasm. Okay two more     personally I Dont want to know.
