This Defense has no idea what awaits them in Atlanta. It will be the Legion of Bust come Sunday. I'll come back afterward whatever the outcome but Julio, Roddy, Gonzo and Douglas are going to light up your slow secondary. They won't be bullied like the Redskins tiny receivers.
You have a couple good points, but this secondary has shut down far better receivers than the Redskins' midgets. I acknowledge that Atlanta's foremost trio of receivers will be the year's greatest test of this secondary and I do expect to give up some yards.
But Seattle's scheme doesn't require their corners to be fast. They play excellent press, which helps neutralize speed, and leverages receivers in towards safety help from Earl Thomas. And Earl Thomas IS fast. Crazy fast. He frees up our corners so much it's not even funny. Without him, I have no hesitation in saying that our corners would be nothing.
Our linebackers, on the other hand, won't be pushed much. Beyond Roddy/Jones/Gonzo, I'm not much scared of anyone else you have to offer. Our LB's should be up to Jacquizz's challenge and free to do other things, like blitz Matt Ryan (we have some talented LB blitzers who haven't been given the chance to show their chops).
I'm not sure what you're talking about when you speak of Sherman's nervous giggle.
