Lynch has been big in the post season, no doubt. But over the season, he averaged around 4.0 yards per carry. He also rushed for 1200 something yards. This isn't a prediction thread--he might have a big game.

But does the overall body of work line up with the hype that comes with it? And has too little been made of Denver against the run?

He bounces too much before the LOS, but if he gets going he's gonna be tough to handle. Hopefully get some runs for losses early and make them ditch their gameplan.

Moreover, hopefully Denver scores early to diminish that as an option.

Well, this is one thing no one on TV even wants to think about, let alone discuss.

Like Chris Harris said, all the Broncos have to do is tackle.

1. Without the 40-yarder against the 49ers, Lynch was 21 for 69 yards.
2. The week prior, he went off against the Saints, who truly have one of the worst rushing Defenses in the NFL. They gave up 4.6 YPA for the season (28th in the NFL).
3. Before the playoffs, Lynch didn't break 100 yards for 6 straight game.

Yes and no. I would say their passing game should be better based on how heavily they lean on their run game. They have decent receivers, but it's basically all go routes. You'd think that would lure some safeties out of the box, but they don't scare enough to warrant that. So it's all Lynch.

Seattle's success on the ground sets up their underrated passing game. Ball control, no turnovers, and big plays. Wilson's not going to force a pass. He'll take the sack or escape for positive yardage. He may have been sacked a lot, but he's not in the top 10 sack yards lost. The threat of him escaping on the ground opens up a dangerously effective passing game.

Apparently, not from the pocket and rolls to the right. I'm really hoping he defense is emphasizing not letting him roll out to his right.

If we set the edge at DE then he shouldn't have success rolling at all.

The only thing I fear from Wilson is running away from Pot Roast up the middle to continue a big drive late in the game.

Well Seattles run game does play in a division with 2 legit top 5 D's and St Louis D is pretty damn good in itself. Their OL under performs and is pretty average though.

That's where spies come in.

Lynch was under 4 yards per carry in 9 out of their 16 games.

We were told we were going to be torn up by Blount. They're hyping Lynch and paying little attention to Denver's stout run defense.
