Seattle Seahawks: Two 100-Yard Touchdowns are Absolutely Meaningless in Grand Scheme of Things
The Seattle Seahawks have had an eventful summer, specifically at the wide receiver position. With new addition Percy Harvin suffering an injury that will keep him out a while and questions regarding Sidney Rice’s knee, the team has had their shares of issues.
Saturday night, Seattle faced off against Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos, putting a 40-10 beat down on the arguable Super Bowl favorites. Quarterback Russell Wilson didn’t seem phased by the loss of Harvin, though, as he played almost as good as he could have been going 8-12 with 127 yards and two touchdowns, with zero interceptions.
One of those touchdowns came by virtually-unknown wideout Jermaine Kearse on a 12 yard pass. Kearse had himself quite a game as he also took a kickoff return 107 yards for a score.
In a game that featured yet another 100-plus yard score, the Seahawks got a 106-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown out of defensive back Brandon Browner. According to Elias, this pair of 100-plus yard touchdowns has never happened in the regular season — making it even more impressive.
Wait, no it doesn’t.
While I’m sure fans were excited to witness such a feat, it can’t be blown out of proportion. This is after all, the preseason. If something like this were to happen in the regular season, momentum would be carried out in a much more important fashion. But, because one of these guys isn’t even a starter and probably never will be, it’s just another great preseason highlight reel.
I am of the opinion that Seattle could easily end up in the Super Bowl and very well could end up winning it. So, don’t take this as a hater’s point of view. There are very few things that truly matter in the preseason in the grand scheme of things, and something like this must be taken with a grain of salt.
