The NFL is a copycat league.
So when an offense or defense in the NFL does something phenomenal, expect an off-season of NFL coaches and scouts searching out the parts to try and emulate that phenomenon.
We can expect several NFL teams to try and emulate the Seahawks fast, physical and stingy defense. Aaron Rodgers for one thinks emulating the Seahawks will be unrealistic for so many NFL teams.
“With all due respect, I don’t think it’s possible to play at that kind of level for many other teams in this league, if any,” Rodgers said. “That’s a talented group. I don’t think that should be our goal. We do need to improve on both sides of the ball, but that team has a unique mixture of secondary talent that’s as good a group in the league as you can see, and then a front seven that really plays well together. It should be maybe the standard we’re going for, but it might be a little unrealistic to think of any defense being as good as that for the next couple years.”
Rodgers is right.
You’re not going to snag franchise changing corners in the 5th round. Teams aren’t going to land a Bruce Irvin, Russell Wilson, and the list goes on.
