Seahawks Football 101: Dave Wyman compares his old highlights to a modern day trap play

On the latest edition of Seahawks Football 101, Dave Wyman does something different – he puts a play from his own NFL career under the microscope.

Rost: Honesty is the best policy for fixing Hawks’ offense

Those that know Dave will likely be surprised at this development, as he’s never been one to put his own highlights in the spotlight. We were able to convince him this time around, however, after the Wyman and Bob Twitter account shared this video of 710 ESPN Seattle’s resident linebacker intercepting Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino in a 1990 Seahawks-Dolphins game.

That’s the exact play Wyman breaks down in this Football 101 session, but don’t think for one second that he would just leave it there. He uses it as an opportunity to draw a link to today’s NFL game.

As Wyman explains, his interception of Marino come on a trap play, which is something still used regularly in the league today. So after going through how his 1990 Seahawks defended the Dolphins’ attempt, he pulls up a trap play that Russell Wilson and the Seahawks’ offense ran against the Philadelphia Eagles in 2019 – to much more success than Marino and the Dolphins did against Wyman.
