Practice in the rain

Posted by Jose Romero

Everyone got lucky yesterday as far as the weather, but today's Seahawks practice was conducted in a constant shower.

The team probably would have gone back to the UW's Dempsey Indoor facility today if this wasn't the last practice of the week. The team gets Friday-Sunday off and resumes the mini-camp Monday.

The team slogged through the rain. Highlights of the day included a couple of nice catches from WRs Michael Bumpus and Trent Shelton in one-on-one drills against defensive backs and an interception by Josh Wilson during team drills.

I'm not sure if I've ever seen the team so happy to be done with practice. When Kevin Hobbs ended the day with an interception, the entire defense mobbed him and chanted while jumpiing up and down. Then guys broke off and headed for the locker room and out of the rain.

From the previous blog it seem Jordan Kent is carving a niche for himself. What was the last time you even saw Hasselbeck throw a deep ball in a competitive game?

If he can make a few plays early in the year, just putting him on the field to give other WRs a breather can place concerns in the opposing defense. Here's to his continued development!

AZ, I think it depends on what you qualify as a deep ball. If you are looking for a 60 yard bomb you are not going to find it in the arm of Hasselbeck. His is 50 yards maybe. 40 yards might be more within his accuracy range though. Even then, its been awhile. The last one I can recall was at St. Louis in 06. He threw a beautiful 42 yard pass to D-Jack as we were making our comeback in the 2nd half.

It might be because its Monday morning, but I can't think of any that he had this last year that were 40 yards or more in the air.
