I think the Seahawks have plenty of film on the Giants playing against a WCO without a running game...imagine if they confront a WCO with a running game...like today.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Corey Webster wished he knew.
"I can't explain it," the Giants' left cornerback said.
Sam Madison had the general answer.
"We can play better," the Giants' right corner said.
They had better. After watching the secondary struggle through two games now, the worst of which came over the first three quarters of last week's win in Philadelphia, it is clear the defensive backs have had trouble covering people.
Tomorrow they will face a Seattle offense that not only is trying to find its identity, but will try to do it this week with the deepest set of receivers the Giants have played yet.
Former Patriot Deion Branch is ready for action, and Darrell Jackson leads the way with 10 catches for 174 yards and a touchdown. Bobby Engram follows him with nine catches for 103 yards.
While former Viking Nate Burleson and second-year wide receiver D.J. Hackett await extensive use, the first-time activation of Branch since his trade from New England last week gives the Seahawks a dangerous recipe of experienced possession receivers and downfield speed.
