Opponent's View: Seahawks on AB, Ben


The Steelers make the long road trip to take on Seattle on Sunday, and the Seahawks are giving their take on Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, DeAngelo Williams and more.

Here is what they had to say.

Quarterback Russell Wilson on Ben Roethlisberger:
"He is a hard worker, talented and I have a lot of respect for him. I have watched him ever since he came into the league. His success right away was staggering, just watching the way he was able to win Super Bowls and be clutch when he needed to be. Also watching him extend plays, it's pretty cool to watch.

"I have watched him. Watching his ability to extend the play and how he gets the ball out and the throws he makes. I try to take something from that. He is so clutch. He is a battler, a competitor, and he is pretty special to watch."

Wilson on playing the Steelers:
"I am excited about the opportunity to play a very tough team in the Steelers. Every game is a championship style game. It's a very good football team across the board. Coach Tomlin has them coached extremely well. Big Ben is a spectacular player. They have great guys on defense as well. It will be a great matchup. It's going to be a battle. We are looking forward to it."

Coach Pete Carroll on the challenge Antonio Brown presents:
"He is a great player with a system that is really constructed to show all of his strengths. He has a great quarterback that has great chemistry, so it's just as difficult as it can get to try and stop him."

Carroll on Roethlisberger:
"Ben is a phenomenal pocket thrower and a great mover. He is one of the most resourceful quarterbacks ever to find a way to make a play."

Carroll on the value of the Steelers having running back DeAngelo Williams:
"It's extremely valuable that you don't lose the nature of your team. You don't want to shift gears. Le'Veon (Bell) was dynamic and could make all kinds of special things happen. DeAngelo has always been a tough guy to tackle, can make you miss and has a great burst. They aren't the same, but they are both very dynamic and can break your heart in a second with a big play."
