Watching Bobby Wagner play, the first thing you might notice is his speed. That swiftness, once clocked at sub-4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash, makes him a sideline-to-sideline nightmare for running backs and once prompted the venerable Frank Gore to say, Kam Chancellor Jerseys “Bobby, man, he's f—— fast as f—.”But the Seahawks' middle linebacker—who has surpassed 100 tackles in each of his five NFL seasons, and last year made a franchise-record 167 stops—views his athletic ability as a mere complement to the most important aspect of his game. That may seem like a stunningly large percentage for a physical game, until you hear Wagner describe how he does his job. He prepares so well, he says, that he knows what play is coming on about seven out of every 10 plays before the ball is snapped. After thinking it over for a few seconds, he Marshawn Lynch Jerseys reconsiders that appraisal. “It might be higher,” he says.Wagner is the Seahawks' defensive signal-caller, the guy in the middle of a defense that has been the NFL's stingiest, in terms of points allowed, in four out of the past five seasons. (In their outlier season, 2016, the Seahawks finished third.) Seattle's defensive scheme is often described as relatively simple, as the unit plays mainly Cover 3 zone (first and second downs) or Doug Baldwin Jerseys man-to-man (third downs). But what each player does Richard Sherman Jerseys on the field is much more complicated than those schemes might suggest.This is Smarter Football Week Russell Wilson Jerseys at The MMQB, in which we're spotlighting the mental side of the game and what often goes unnoticed to the naked eye. Quarterback might be the only position on the field that gets due credit for the brainpower that goes into making plays. So we set out to understand the mental process of a non-quarterback who, if you will, has a Ph.D. in the sport. As we solicited suggestions among players and coaches, Wagner's name kept coming up.
