Seattle Seahawks to Use Trick Plays

And I don't mean shotgun formation. Behold! Trickeration:

Expect to see more. Mike Holmgren wasn't much on trick plays, but Mora said that's going to be something the Seahawks will implement this season.

"We've got to be able to do some things like that," he said. "We've got to be able to make the defense defend the whole field, and so you'll see that. You'll see some reverses, you'll see some flea-flickers, you'll see some reverse passes.

Trick plays work if a team has the personnel and practices them regularly. Seattle's trick play personnel is Seneca Wallace, and so though the team is stepping up its practicing, I'm not sure this is going anywhere good. The play that precedes the above quote was a fake-reverse wide receiver pass by T.J Houshmandzadeh. Housh threw at Nate Burelson and into double coverage where Brian Russell intercepted. Russell isn't going to get an easier interception than T.J. Houshmandzadeh throwing into double coverage. Houshmandzadeh has no professional pass attempts and his days as a rusher are behind him. So the play was telegraphed and attempted by someone without the ability to execute it.
