The Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) come to town and they’re bringing a lot of familiar faces with them. Their new head coach, Gus Bradley, was Seattle’s defensive coordinator under Pete Carroll until he was presented the chance to take over the Jaguars. It’s going to be a huge project to turn around what is widely considered the worst team in the NFL.
Joining Bradley is former running back Justin Forsett and safety, Winston Guy. As soon as Guy was released during roster cuts the Jaguars picked him up, and he’s starting for the Jaguars. That shows both how deep the Seahawks were in the secondary as well as how week the Jaguars are.
The big news this week for the Seahawks is that cornerback Brandon Browner and defensive end Chris Clemons will be seeing their first game action of the 2013 season. Both have missed the first two regular season games against the Panthers and 49ers and fans have been anxious to see what the NFL’s top defense looks like with two of the better players on the squad. Walter Thurmond has been doing very well subbing for Browner and will now play more inside as the nickel CB. Clemons has been the Seahawks’ best pass rusher the past three years and he joins a defensive line that has seen solid play with Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett thus far.
Russell Okung will not play for some time as he has been placed on the IR with a designation to return due to a torn ligament in his toe. Rookie Alvin Bailey or Paul McQuistan will start at left tackle in his place.
