It’s a happy Top 10 on this day as the Seahawks are basking in a blowout win over the Green Bay Packers that only heightens the thought that the Seahawks can indeed make a run at repeating this season.
1, We’ll start with ProFootballFocus’ review of the game, which gives high grades to Cliff Avril and Marshawn Lynch, and a not-so-good-one to Byron Maxwell. PFF also had this piece on the impact of Percy Harvin and this saying that Russell Wilson’s receivers bailed him out a little last night.
2, It appears Richard Sherman let Aaron Rodgers know after the game last night that he noticed that Rodgers avoided him all game.
Sherman made his own comment about it on Twitter last night:
"When you are great, you make your opponent adjust to you. You don't adjust to suit them."
