DK Metcalf is just beginning his greatness…
Last week against Arizona, DK flashed off his greatness with that ridiculous chase down of S Budda Baker. In the win over the Niners, DK displayed his great catching ability. Week after week, DK finds a new way to amaze me. Yesterday, he recorded 12 catches on 15 targets for 161 yards and 2 touchdowns.
He was making it look easy as he just found the spots in the zone. He was very effective on the slant routes and had a couple of plays up the sideline. The first touchdown of the game came when DK caught a little end-route, had some space to work it, rounded the corner and hit top speed, running into the end zone untouched. There really is no one like him with that combination of size, speed and physicality.
Perhaps, my favorite play of the game for DK came when Russell Wilson was hit when sliding. Last week, we saw Cowboys QB Andy Dalton get hit when sliding and none of his teammates came to his aid. When 49ers CB Jimmy Ward, hit Russell Wilson while sliding, one of the first guys to come in ready to fight was DK.
Metcalf isn’t known to be a hot head or a drama queen. In fact, Coach Carroll praises him for how humble he is and the great work ethic he has. It is no secret that he is close with his quarterback and so, he came to his aid. I love the fearlessness Metcalf plays with when he steps on the field. While he is a great wideout, he has really committed himself to be better as a run blocker.
DK praised his pink suit for his phenomenal play in the victory.
He matched the pink suit with the pink hair. Hey, whatever works, as long as he continues to produce.
