Film Room: Russell Wilson used rub concepts to move ball efficiently against Eagles

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Seattle Seahawks Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

We have the excellent Sam’s Film Room here at Field Gulls with Sam Gold, but there are some other SB Nation blogs with talented NFL videographers as well. Perhaps none at the other 31 blogs though are as good as Brett Kollmann from Battle Red Blog and his Film Room. We are lucky then to get a video breakdown from Brett this week on the MVP-type performance by Russell Wilson against the Eagles last Sunday.

In this video, Kollmann shows us how the Seattle Seahawks used rub concepts to move the ball against Philadelphia as a pseudo-running game knowing that they’d rarely be able to successfully run on Fletcher Cox and that defensive line. Kollman also shows us the “Gun Wing Slot Left” formation, calling Seattle’s offensive game plan against the Eagles “simply spectacular” as the Seahawks won 24-10.

Kollman calls Wilson “one of the most dangerous deep ball passers” and “fearless in the pocket,” which you’ll obviously see plenty of in this breakdown. Another check mark for Wilson’s MVP candidacy in 2017. Wilson takes on another elite defensive line and an even better pass defense against the Jaguars on Sunday, so take note of some of the concepts and formations in this film.
