Green Bay’s season looks like it has regained some life after defeating the Seattle Seahawks 38-10 on Sunday. But, even during a relatively normal game between the two teams, there has to be some kind of controversy that pops up.
In the waning moments of the contest, the Packers lined up in their victory formation to run out the game clock. Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane decided that would be a good time to get a quick shot in on the opposition.
Randall Cobb was on the receiving end and wasn’t at all happy about being targeted during a meaningless play. He has every right to take exception to the cheap shot that could have injured him late in play.
The star wideout told the media after the game: “They’re just cheap. Bunch of front-runners. That’s Seattle, for you. That’s what they do. It was all over the field.”
Emerald City’s team always finds itself in these altercations in tight games. The fire that their defense carries themselves with often spills over onto the field in high leverage moments. Aggression is core to their identity as a team.
But, the Seahawks need to control their emotions in the event that one of these moments of poor judgement could come back to bite them. They were once a part of a huge dust up that broke out during the Patriots win in Super Bowl XLIX.
Pete Carroll’s team has been one of the most entertaining outfits in the entire NFL during his tenure in Seattle. His defensive unit has been composed of some of the league’s most outspoken and interesting characters.
Richard Sherman is boisterous, well spoken and a great character off the field. He and his other leaders on that side of the ball need to make an effort to get everyone on the same page.
They all need to tone it down just a little bit for the betterment of their team. They can’t keep playing with fire and expect to evade getting burned.
