Thursday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Brady Quinn tells Jonas Knox and LaVar Arrington how Seattle ran a unique offensive game plan which may have eventually frustrated Russell Wilson.

Brady Quinn: "There's no doubt you got a sense that offense was more built to run the football, take shots, and then let Russ be special when it was called upon. They felt really comfortable and confident going into the fourth quarter if the game was tight being able to pull away or in the final minutes being able to out execute either with their defense or offense. That was their mindset like they owned the fourth quarter. And look it was effective. They went on to win a Super Bowl that year... but down the stretch of things, we saw instances of this when he'd have a six game stretch where he was on fire, but the problem was their defense was getting abused, and Pete Carroll didn't want that. I think that's where the frustration probably grew over the course last four years."
