Danny O'Neil covers the Seahawks for The Seattle Times.
A light moment in practice
Posted by Jose Romero at 1:31 PM
Coach Mike Holmgren can be pretty serious in practice, but even he couldn't help but turn around and laugh at left tackle Walter Jones when Jones started barking during practice.
But let me give you the backstory: Rookie DT Brandon Mebane is often ordered to bark out the word "huddle" by his veteran teammates. So as the defense huddled up Friday -- and countless times before -- someone had Mebane shout the word. Only when he does, it sounds more like a dog or sea lion barking.
Jones was watching and started laughing, then barked back at the defense in mockery of Mebane. Jones happened to be standing by himself, and Holmgren was the closest person in earshot.
Maybe you had to be there, but it was pretty funny.
