I know many of you really hate the Seahawks. Believe me, I do too. But, as much as it pains me to say, I had a very nice time with Brian over at the Hawk Blogger podcast on Thursday night. We discussed all kinds of NFL-related things, most importantly the upcoming matchup between the Rams and Hawks. Brian was great, and Ryan Burns from Footballsickness.com, who was also a guest, was outstanding as well. If you have some time, head over to the link and give it a listen. It’s about an hour long, but I’m not on the whole thing, so feel free to listen to however much or little you feel like. Just FYI, it’s a bunch of Seahawks talk after I get off, so if you want a nice preview from the opposing point of view, make sure to make some time to listen to Brian and Ryan go. Here is the link, so check it out and make sure to give a look to Hawk Blog and Footballsickness.com. I just want to say thanks again to Brian for letting me on the show.
Quick Injury Update: SJ39 didn’t practice again today, and he is still being listed as day-to-day. I’m really starting to think that he won’t be able to go this Sunday, but we probably won’t know until just before game-time on Sunday morning. OJ Atogwe didn’t go today either, but I think we will probably know more about his status on Friday. Craig Dahl did go fully today, so the special teams and defense should get a boost. Clifton Ryan was out with migraines again, and it sounds like this issue isn’t improving. Laurent Robinson was out again, but like Atogwe, we should know more about him before Sunday.
Chauncey Watch: New running back Chauncey Washington is making progress, but it sounds like he will be limited offensively as he continues to learn the offense. He did some work with the 1’s today, but he said after practice he is still getting a grasp on the play-calling. I think he could be a big contributor down the road, but he might not be ready just yet. He might get tossed into action if SJ39 doesn’t go, so it with certainly be worth watching.
