Locker Room Buzz: Seattle Seahawks
By Terry Blount
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Observed in the locker room after the Seattle Seahawks' 34-22 win over the Arizona Cardinals:
High-fives for the defense: Seattle had a season-high seven sacks among eight players. “We’re taking advantage of all our depth,’’ said linebacker K.J. Wright. “The rotation is really good. Everybody is getting a piece of the action.”
Praise for Wilson: Receiver Golden Tate is amazed at what he continues to see from Russell Wilson, who threw three touchdown passes despite being under constant pressure. "He’s grown tremendously," Tate said. "I’m very proud of him and very happy to be playing with him. He’s such a dangerous quarterback with his speed and his arm. He’s definitely our leader.”
Sherman teases Browner: Richard Sherman was giving fellow cornerback Brandon Browner a hard time about stumbling and falling down before reaching the end zone on what would have been a 50-yard pick-six. "I’m giving his knees a hard time," Sherman said, looking at Browner. "His knees collapsed on him. But that’s my boy. He’s known pay dirt before, so he wanted to let Marshawn [Lynch] get another touchdown."
