2012 Game Summaries
Week 1 - For a majority of the game it looked as though Edwards may have become Wilson’s favorite target, but the start and finish were pretty rough. His first catch was a two yard reception that should have been four. Edwards was hit in the hands right at the first down markers and bobbled the ball back two yards before he was tackled. A clean catch would have meant a first down, but he was bailed out by a penalty. Edwards’ success came mostly on short to intermediate hitches, and his timing with Wilson was impeccable. He showed good effort getting every yard he could after the catch, and good hands for most of the game. On the Seahawks last offensive play of the game Edwards had his hands on a ball in the end zone but was unable to hold on under duress. He could have done a better job using his body to shield the defender.
Week 6 - Edwards (2 rec for 21 yards and a TD) plays a niche role for the Seahawks when they are in the red zone. He is a tall, vertical WR that has yet to emerge in the WR corps for Seattle. He may, however, begin to eat away at Golden Tate’s snaps after he hauled in a 10-yard touchdown at a crucial point in the 4th quarter.
Week 7 - Edwards will receive some criticism for dropping a pass in the endzone in the second quarter, but he showed excellent athleticism to high point a pass that was simply thrown up between he and two defenders. It was by no means an easy reception as the defenders were in good position and Edwards had to extend his body.
Week 15 - Claimed on waivers only six days ago, Edwards started and played most of the game despite practicing in a limited fashion. Edwards showed no fear as he worked the middle of the field and took advantage of match-ups against safeties. Edwards beat Michael Griffin on a slant route and secured a 17-yard gain. Sanchez came back to Edwards, finding him down the seam for another 15-yard gain. Edwards is nursing a hamstring injury, but looked comfortable catching passes from Sanchez.
Week 16 - Edwards was the Jets go-to guy in the red zone, though he was unable to convert any into scores. He was targeted in the front corner of the end zone on a quick out, but the ball was overthrown out of bounds. He later saw another target in the end zone, and drew a pass interference penalty call. Edwards DID catch three passes, one of them a TOUGH catch with the defender hanging all over him. But with QB Greg McElroy under so much duress from the San Diego pass rush, Edwards’ deep routes never had a chance to develop.
Week 17 - Sanchez’s favorite target on Sunday, Edwards was targeted eight times with four catches for 42 yards. Edwards’ long went for 19 yards and showed flashes of his breakout season in Cleveland. An attempted back shoulder throw, Sanchez actually threw it too far inside, but Edwards was able to elevate and avoid CB Aaron Williams’ flailing arms to bring the throw in. Coming down hard on his back, Edwards maintained control despite the tumble. Edwards again made a great grab on an errant Sanchez throw, this time picking the low throw from his shoe tops for 12 yards on a 3rd and five.
