The Seahawks made some interesting moves Tuesday, waiving Christine Michael and Sealver Siliga, promoting fan favorite Troymaine Pope and signing an interesting D-tackle, John Jenkins.
Michael simply never earned the trust of the coaches (and still had that entitled attitude that goes counter to Pete Carroll’s mantra).
Thomas Rawls is finally ready to roll again (which explains the timing of Michael’s release).
Earl Thomas apparently punctured Rob Gronkowski’s lung on that big hit, but both players have a lot of respect for each other.
Lots of people going gaga over Kam Chancellor’s return.
An unsung and largely unknown player, Marcus Lucas, played a big role in how Chancellor and the Hawks stopped Gronkowski and the Patriots on the fourth-down play at the end of the game.
Carroll went against conventional wisdom on his two-point try vs. the Patriots.
Carroll said the win in New England was special — and Patriots fans are not. He correctly pointed out they are spoiled by success and don’t support their team very exuberantly.
Mike Morgan will come off IR in a couple of weeks.
Perhaps overlooked from the Patriots game, Steven Hauschka set the franchise record for field goals.
Interesting stat: The Hawks were 1-6 in 2015 when giving up 20 points; they are 3-1 in those games this year.
Russell Wilson was a Sonics fan as a kid, which is partly why he has fired up Seattle sports fans by jumping on the Sonics Redux bandwagon.
Doug Baldwin went on a diatribe about the state of American society.
A first look at the Eagles, who bring a rookie QB and a good defense to Seattle.
