This is going to be a fun game to watch this weekend, mark my words. Cleveland has an explosive offense right now and Cormiell is a savvy defensive head coach.
Here are Seattle Sports Blogs Keys to the game:
1. Contain Edwards, Winslow: They are two of the hottest WR/TE's in the league right now and can tear our smaller CB's apart with length and speed. We need a lot out of Russell and Grant this game to lay a helmet on them early and often.
2. Running game: Seattle cannot expect to win games with Alexander running for 2.5 yards a carry. Get the ball into the speedier Morris and Weavers hands.
3. This is going to be a high scoring game, so it's key that we have the ball and lead late in the game. Matt Hasselbeck has not been able to prove himself on the road in clutch situations, so we'll need to control the game late with a lead....hopefully.
4. Mix up the play calling: Holmgren and Marshall need to do a better job of play calling and clock management. Marshall continues to not figure out what the rest of the league is doing by crowding the LOS and Holmgren continues to struggle with running the 2 minute offense.
I see Seattle in a sqeaker, 27-24.

It has become VERY apparent that the non-conference schedule that Ty Willingham put together has done little to boost the UW confidence level this year. The Pac 10 is STACKED like never before, so it's key to recruit locally and get some studs from the surrounding areas like Don James used to do. Let's make our non-conference schedule a bit easier next year so we can have more confidence going into these games vs. USC and Oregon.

Good to see that we at least stayed competitive against Denver last night. Where was Swift and Ridnour last night? We are in trouble if Delonte West is our top offensive player. Watson needs to step up in a game like last night and did not perform. Durrant is the real deal, but it's going to take time for him to adjust.
