  1. if Geno Smith were to get injured I do not think that we would put in Drew lock. Mark my words; we will put in Holton Ahlers…and that kid will LIGHT UP THE NFL. REMEMBER THAT YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.

  2. What a huge amount of young UDFA’s. I looked at the remaining list of Seahawk free agents from last year’s roster & see a couple that I was hoping might come back on the cheap. Shelby Harris is one that I specifically would love to see at the Veteran minimum. He deserves & likely gets more, but still hoping. The rest, are clearly not in the team’s plans, going forward.

  3. I feel like Seattle is going to really improve on defense this year…it will be interesting to see some unique combinations on the field…I think they will be really fast…no doubt the Seahawks are going to RUN…THE…BALL this year…with play action passes as well….
