For the second straight week, Brandon Browner was struggling. After a rough game in Indianapolis, the Tennessee Titans were not shying away from going after the Seattle Seahawks cornerback. Pete Carroll felt Browner needed a break. So for most of the second quarter last Sunday, Browner was a spectator on the sideline in the role of student.
Most teams don't possess the depth in the secondary where a starter and former Pro Bowl selection can be given a break such as Browner was. But it's another sign of the depth the Seahawks have built in a secondary that remains among the best in the NFL.
While cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas are the All-Pros of the group, there is other talent surrounding the pair that elevates the status of the group.
