Totally agree. Jeezus, the Seahawks figured out that RG III was badly compromised right before the TD that put us up 14-0, that's why they geared their defense entirely toward stopping Morris after that point. They saw how hurt RG III was and said, let's stop worrying about him beating us (which was helping Morris pile up yards in the 1st Q) and focus entirely on not letting Morris beat us. Hence, Kyle moves away from running Morris (because the Seahawks were geared primarily to stopping that) and trying to get RG III to make things happen - which he wasn't physically capable of doing (not to mention the lousy field position after the 1st Q).

At least with Cousins in there, the Seahawks D would have to worry a bit that our QB might be able to help the offense in some way, which could have opened things up a bit for Morris. How is it that the Seahawks were so quick to figure out that RG III couldn't make a play, but Shanny was never able to do so? To me, that speaks to the rigidity of his mind-set - the guy just does not adapt to changing circumstances very well.
