Dave Boling of The News Tribune writes about the impact Seattle’s young cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman are having on the rest of the defense. At 6-foot-4 and 6-foot-3 respectively, Browner and Sherman make up the biggest cornerback tandem in the league.
Boling: “Both were expected to be backups when this season started but now comprise a tandem of corners that have to be among the most sizeable in NFL history.
Sherman is a rookie, and Browner is essentially an NFL rookie, so mistakes and miscues can be expected. But Sherman has been responsible for three opponent turnovers in the past two games, and Browner set a franchise record with a 94-yard interception return for a touchdown in the win over the New York Giants.
Along with safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, the secondary has limited opponents to 10 touchdown passes in the first half of the season, a huge improvement over last year when 31 scores came by air.”
