Sunday’s 17-3 victory over

Capers Turns To Thomas

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. SEA

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from yesterday’s game against the Seahawks: 1) Due to his lack of speed and quickness, Richard Rodgers will never be an elite player.
