Russell Wilson looks good vs Colts in 2018 debut He was facing an Indianapolis Colts defense that figures to be bad this season regardless 4Justin Britt Jersey , and in a preseason matchup without a full slate of starters or an entire playbook by the coordinators, but Russell Wilson is off to a hot start in 2018. Facing the Colts at home on Thursday, Wilson played in the opening drive and went 4-of-5 for 43 yards and one touchdown.He also kept the ball on the ground twice, gaining 14 more yards.Wilson showed off his legs, arm, and brain in this short touchdown throw to tight end Nick Vannett:The Seahawks took the lead and Wilson was replaced on the next drive by Austin Davis. Things didn’t go as well for Davis in his opportunity at the Indianapolis goal line, as he threw an easily-picked interception shortly later in the first half.Wilson targeted Vannett three times on the drive, signaling a potentially big role for Vannett depending on how long Ed Dickson is out with injury. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer could end up featuring both tight ends heavily anyway, as well as rookie Will Dissly. It’s a good sign for an offense that was without Doug Baldwin and Dickson.Another expected starter who played well in the opening quarter was running back Chris Carson Tyler Lockett Jersey , who carried the ball four times for 26 yards. Rookie Rashaad Penny was stuffed for a loss on his first play, but had a nice six-yard run later on in the half. David Moore had perhaps the highlight of the half with this 28-yard grab from Davis:Tre Flowers’ first ever game as a cornerback to come Sunday in NFL debut The Seattle Seahawks placed Dontae Johnson on IR on Saturday, leaving them with these five cornerbacks after a corresponding roster move: Shaquill Griffin, Justin Coleman, Tre Flowers, Neiko Thorpe, and Akeem King. As expected, unless the Seahawks thought that their next-best option at outside corner was the guy they just pulled off the practice squad, Seattle is going to start Flowers opposite of Griffin.Thus far in his football career Authentic Frank Clark Jersey , Flowers has only been a safety on the defensive side of the ball. He’s going to play his first game at corner as a starter against Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, and/or Courtland Sutton. It’s a hell of a way to make an introduction.While I can’t say for sure that Flowers did not play corner in high school, he was always listed as a safety recruit. During four years and 51 games at Oklahoma State, Flowers only played safety. The Seahawks selected Flowers in the fifth round this year, fully intending to move him to cornerback due to his 6’3, 202 lb, 33.75” arms measurements with a 4.45 40, 33” vertical Youth Will Dissly Jersey , and 10’2 broad jump. Theoretically that transition would be most ideal if it’s taking place over the course of a year and a half while learning and growing behind a more experienced starter, which is why the team brought in players like Byron Maxwell and Johnson and had a workout with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, but Maxwell and Johnson got hurt and clearly DRC didn’t wow them. Now it’s on Flowers to show if he’s that fast of a learner and at least capable of not getting beat with any damaging consistency. You would have to at least think that Pete Carroll wouldn’t put him out there if he thought that there was a high probability of that; the curve here has obviously been much different than their attempted transition of Mike Tyson, a sixth round safety-turned-corner a year ago who could not stick with the team in either of the last two seasons.At this point, it’s no a longer a question of “if” Flowers can start. He’s starting. Now we wait to find out if he can start next week. And the week after. Or if Seattle’s corner search continues.
