LANDOVER, MD. - Seattle Seahawks defenders weren't afraid of the running threat posed by a gimpy Robert Griffin III.

They actually wanted him to run it; were even daring him to do so.

And that was before Griffin aggravated his injured right knee!

"We knew from watching film of Washington-Dallas that this guy wasn't 100%," Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright told me after Seattle's 24-14 defeat of the Washington Redskins on Sunday night.
