Seahawks cornerbacks a tall order for Redskins
Browner, Sherman present issue in NFC wild card game
But one thing the Washington Redskins and all opponents know about them.
“They’re very good at jamming guys. They’re very physical. They try to beat you up all the way down the field,” offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said. “They compete in the run and the pass game. They have a lot of confidence in them.”
“Both guys have a real knack for the position as well. They’re not just tall guys out there playing. They both have a style and they’re different, but they have a style that allows them to be aggressive and a factor on players they play against,” Carroll said. “They both ball-hawk and can catch the football well. They both run real well. We’ve just been fortunate. We lucked out that we found both those guys in the same lifetime and they can play together.”
“We’re not worried about them guys. We’re worried about us going out there and being on the same page, us doing what we got to do, us making plays,” Hankerson said. “I don’t think it do because you’re doing the same thing you would do against any other cornerback. Win against your [isolation], breaking him off, getting open, running routes and catching the football. I don’t see it being different or an advantage for us or an advantage for them.”
The Redskins‘ receivers recognize the size they’re dealing with in Seattle’s secondary, and tight end Niles Paul was quick to praise safeties Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas, both of whom he played against in college.
But there is one advantage Washington has.
“We do got a lot of speed,” Garcon said. “Hopefully, we can put it on tape on Sunday.”
“They’re just aggressive,” Paul said. “They’re one of the more aggressive secondaries in the league and they make plays. They come up in your face and they hit you.”
