Tyler Lockett on D.K. Metcalf: Stopping both of us isn’t going to work

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson‘s scorching start to the 2020 season landed him NFC offensive player of the month honors this week and it has landed two of the team’s wideouts in the top 10 in receiving yards to this point in the season.

D.K. Metcalf is third with 297 yards on just 12 catches while Tyler Lockett is 10th with 259 yards on 24 catches. The duo has combined to catch seven of Wilson’s 14 touchdown passes and Lockett shared his view of why he doesn’t see things slowing down anytime soon.

“I think a lot of teams [last year] were going to see what he could do first,” Lockett said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “Now that everybody was able to see what he could do, I think the second season he’s already showing, like, ‘Y’all better pick your poison. Like do whatever you want to do — if you’re going to try to stop both of us it’s still not going to work. If you’re going to try to stop one of us the other is going to ball out.'”

The Dolphins will get their chance to prove Lockett wrong this Sunday and their effort will get a boost if cornerback Byron Jones is able to get back into the lineup. Jones was limited in Thursday’s practice after missing Wednesday’s session with groin and Achilles injuries.

  1. I’m so glad the Eagles passed on Metcalf. Not believing all the predraft hype and drafting a true stud in JJaws.

    Way to go Howie.

  2. Let’s see whether Lockett and Metcalf are unstoppable when they start to face defenses that aren’t riddled with injuries, lacking in talent, and/or transitioning in a new defensive scheme in a shortened offseason. In the early season, matchups can greatly skew our perspective of the quality of teams and units. Perhaps they’ll be on top when it’s all said and done, but we’re far from there yet!

    LOL! Right, because this is the first season they’ve played together. Oh wait…

    I mean…they both showed out quite nicely last year.

    Every team deals with injuries. It isn’t their fault. They still have to perform, which they have. That’s all they can do.

  5. Packers could have him and DJ Chark on their roster and wouldn’t have given up very much. Rodgers is lights out with undrafted free agents. Imagine him with those two.

  6. LOL He’s talking like they are the Chiefs….Try stopping Kelce, Hill, Watkins, Hardman, CHE and Mahomes…

  7. For years Tyler Lockett has been under the radar on the national stage. Seattle didn’t pass as much as other teams but his catch rate was always top of the league and he made big plays. There are only a handful of players who run routes as well as he does.

    He can plays the slot or outside, I think with Metcalf on the outside, he’s shinning in the slot. I think the OC should get some credit too because Schottenheimer came with a poor reputation but the last 2 years the play calling is great. This year Wilson is throwing TDs to guys in the end zone without a player within 5 yards.

    4 17 Rate This
    ———————————————————————–
    Mahomes = Wilson
    CHE = Carson/Penny
    Hill, Watkins, Hardman = Lockett, Metcalf, Gordon, Moore
    Kelce = Olsen + Dissly + Hollister

    Not saying that these comparisons are in anyway correct, but showing that an argument can be made that the Seahawks skill position players are just as good as KC’s

    Patriot’s defense was ranked #1 last season. They are currently ranked third. Metcalf had 92 yards on four catches and a TD. Lockett caught 7 out of 8 thrown his way, and a TD.

    But please…continue.
