Interesting reading

Posted by Jose Romero

After watching Josh Brown's appearance on the Gospel Music Channel's taped airing of the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration from Phoenix, I ran across a couple of interesting pieces that mentioned the Seahawks.

First, let me say that it was kind of funny watching all of the NFL players in the NFL All-Star Gospel Choir do their thing. Seahawks FB Leonard Weaver looked very much into the song they sang -- it was an upbeat number that had the crowd on its feet -- while Brown didn't move his feet much. But then again, he's paid to kick and not dance, right? I'm joking of course.

Anyway, Mike Florio wrote the following for Yahoo! Sports. It mentions the possiblity of the Seahawks opening the 2008 season on a Thursday night against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. The game would be in New Jersey.

And here's a story from from the Associated Press about players at the Pro Bowl this week who are talking business. As in free agency and where they might end up playing in 2008, including Seattle CB Marcus Trufant.

It's likely that the Seahawks re-sign Trufant, but that doesn't stop other teams' players at the Pro Bowl from making sales pitches.

Speaking of the Pro Bowl, it might be kind of hard to focus on the four Seahawks in the game with 13 Dallas Cowboys playing for the NFC.

A DL? Last time I checked he needed an OL. Last time I checked defenses don't play very hard in pro-bowl. Last time I checked they weren't even allowed to blitz. Last time I checked Matt had a pretty good year with the line he has.

I was just trying to make the point that our line played pretty well in pass protection. Matt had his best year to date. Our line is under enough scrutny with the way it run blocks. Lets give them some praise for the way it kept Matt upright and healthy for the most part. Lets also hope that Rob Sims can go from a pile of elephant dung to a solid guard or we find a nice replacement for the aforementioned elephant dung.

Are you on vacation, or have you given up covering the Hawks? We've been losing coaches left and right and it appears that you are asleep.

Just askin......

Look on the Internet at a guy named Gregg Valentine, if you want, he's 5'6" tall, 28" arms, achieved with steroids. He thinks it looks good, he's a freak! Got nailed for selling steroids, lost everything, getting it from the Mexicans gangs in california. Beings there isn't any Seahawk post or news...take a look, something to do?

I have been slightly fed up with Danny and Jose for quite some time. We had an O-lineman that Carolina just released, Chris Whale visit the Hawks today and there was no coverage. I got the little info that there was from kjr, but would have loved to find something on here. I know it is the offseason, but at least give us Hawks fans something to discuss.

I think Chris Whale would be a great fit in Chris Gray's spot. I think he is 31 and was a two time pro bowler. A good veteran pressence on the O-line. Sign him up.

Its Mike Wahle. He's 30 and made the pro bowl once. If we can get him for half the price of Faneca we should take it. He would definitely be an upgrade.

We signed Wahle. Whats the scouting report on him compared to Hutchinson, Faneca, or Deilman (last years option)? same level, lower?

Tried to research Wahle a little, what I took from it was that at one point he was a dominant player but because of injuries those years might be behind him. I think he's obviously a guy they think will add a veteran presence along with depth. The fact that he played for Holmgren before leads me to believe he's a good charecter type. I am hoping he will be at right guard. I say this because i'm holding out that they will find another solution at left guard possibly a little more of a short term fix until sims can prove himself a little more.

Yeah, Danny you are kind of slacking a bit. Maybe he is on vacation. Does anybody know how much he signed for?

Posted by B-Dog

Tried to do a little research as well but could not find on or cbssportsline any information regarding sacks allowed, pancakes, etc. I agree that I hope he is the solution at right guard not left guard so we can make one more big o-line signing.

I'm hoping Wahle can run block.
