Locker Room Buzz: Seattle Seahawks
By Terry Blount
SEATTLE -- Observed in the locker room after the Seattle Seahawks' 45-17 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars:
What letdown? The players had a lot of I-told-you-so looks over not having any letdown after the emotional victory over San Francisco last weekend and not falling into the so-called trap game against the lowly Jaguars. “We talked about it early in the week,” receiver Doug Baldwin said. “We addressed and said we weren't going to waste this opportunity.”
Just throw it: The communication between quarterback and receiver was a factor in two Seattle touchdowns. Russell Wilson said Sidney Rice signaled for him to just put it up when it appeared Rice was well covered in the end zone, and Rice leaped and made the grab. Baldwin said quarterback Tarvaris Jackson gave him a “little smile,” letting Baldwin know he was going to lob it up down the sideline and let Baldwin make a play, which he did for a 35-yard touchdown.
Touchdowns for the twins: Tight end Zach Miller was beaming about what his two touchdown catches meant to him the day he brought twin baby daughters, Remi and Kaydence, on the field. “I got one for each of them,” Miller said. “I had them on the field before the game, so now I guess I have to bring them on the field before every game.”
