Cowboys defensive tackle Jeremy Mincey has an idea of how to slow down the Seattle Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson--in a word, discipline.
Of course, that’s easier said than done.
“It’s obviously tough to stop them, but we’ve just got to be disciplined. That’s the key to beating Seattle, a lot of discipline,” Mincey told the team’s website. “I was watching the San Diego film. They played with a lot of poise and discipline, and they walked away with the victory. With this team you’ve got to be focused and disciplined and swarm the ball and have a bunch of hats on Marshawn (Lynch) and just be aware of Russell’s feet.”
Mincey, more than anyone else on the Cowboys defense, knows how daunting of a task beating the Seahawks is. He was on the Broncos team last year that made it to the Super Bowl, where they were drubbed by Seattle, 43-8.
“We didn’t match the intensity in the Super Bowl... that’s what happened,” Mincey said. “You’ve got to match this team’s intensity. You’ve got to come out there just as fired up as they are. They play well at home, obviously. And we’ve been pretty good on the road. We’ve just got to keep doing what we’re doing and focus on what we do best.”
