The Washington Redskins' receivers have their work cut out for them when they take on the Seattle Seahawks Sunday night.
The Seahawks corners are big, a very big group all on one team. Richard Sherman is 6' 3", 195 lbs and Brandon Browner is even bigger at 6' 4", 221 lbs. Strong safety Kam Chancellor is 6' 3", 232 lbs. That's a tall order for any team, but not an impossible feat.
Especially for the Redskins receivers, who are no slouches in the height department themselves. Leonard Hankerson is 6' 2", Josh Morgan 6' 1", Pierre Garcon 6', and Santana Moss and Aldrick Robinson are both 5' 10".
“They’re very good at jamming guys,” offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan told the Washington Post. “They’re very physical. They try to beat you up all the way down the field. They compete in the run and the pass game. They have a lot of confidence in them. They play a lot of single safety, and they get after it."
“It’s definitely going to be a challenge, but it’s not going to be bigger than any other week,” Morgan said. “Yeah, bigger guys, but you can’t look at it as a harder challenge.”
Garcon's thoughts - “I just go out and play hard regardless. You have to have very precise routes, and great angles coming back to the ball, and attack the ball. This is one of those games where all the little things matter.”
“You never worry about the other opponent", Santana Moss added. "You watch them, but you try to do what you do, because at the end of the day, they have to watch you also.”
