Giants getting ready for Whitehurst as Seahawks QB
Offensively, the Seahawks will probably limit their gameplan. They can try to establish the run to keep the pressure off Whitehurst, or run shorter pass patterns or keep more players in to protect him in passing situations.
“He is an NFL quarterback, so he is capable of throwing the deep ball and things of that nature,” Rolle said. “I don’t think they are going to change much. They are going to stick to the gameplan.”
After practice on Friday, the defensive backs held a meeting and watched videotapes of Whitehurst in the preseason. Cornerback Corey Webster plans to look at the clips a few times over the next two days, including on the team flight to Seattle on Saturday.
“I remember him from Clemson,” said Webster, a former LSU player. “He’s been in the league five years preparing for a start, so he is going to be comfortable and he’ll go out and run this thing. We have to be ready.”
“You know the gameplan. You know what the plays are,” Manning said. “You know what everybody is running. It’s just a matter of understanding, vs. this coverage I have to work here, vs. this coverage, 1-2-3, the progressions and getting through it. It’s just growing within the offense, knowing what looks are good and what looks are bad, and the different checks and getting everyone on the same page.”
When asked if nerves came into play in his first game, Manning said probably.
“Seven years ago,” he said, “I don’t remember what I was feeling at the time.”
