Reposted to highlight the awesome catch he made against the Eagles. Click on the picture of Joe to watch.
Here is another video clip of an outstanding Jurevicius catch.

We all thought that Joe Jurevicius was a good pickup for the Seahawks, but this article on Seahawks.com removes any shred of doubt there may have been!
He's already completely focused, politically savy, and has that "blue collar" attitude that all the the great ones seem to possess.
"I know we have some great receivers here, and I’m just looking to come here and help this football team win. Whether it’s working in the slot with Bobby Engram and the other guys outside, or maybe add a little bit bigger target in the endzone. I think there are some things I can do. I’m not here to step on toes, I’m just here to help the Seahawks win football games.”
Not much there to diagree with! But not to be outdone by his new hire, "Tinkering Timmy" couldn't pass up the opportunity to throw a few subtle hints at the rest of the WR corp, about the importance of catching the damned ball, and doing the extra things, like downfield blocking. (from the Newsday article on the same press conference)
"He'll do everything he can to catch the ball," Ruskell said. "He'll do the little things. Joe loves to block, and you'll see that in his play. He's a nice presence, a great teammate, a good guy to have on your team."
Jurevicius has already settled in, and seems to be hanging out with the "right" crowd
I played football with Bobby Engram at Penn State, I had dinner with Matt Hasselbeck, and these are the kind of guys that I like being around. When everything transpires on the football field it's pretty important to get along with the guys. Jerry Wunsch was kind of instrumental in getting me here too. I ran into Jerry a couple weeks ago in Atlanta. I do know a few people here and I’m looking forward to working with these guys. They have had success here the last couple years and I’m looking forward to maybe adding something to it. Kind of add my own flare, add my own spice."
Sounds like he's punched in, on the job, and ready to work overtime if needed...let's get this guy one of those blue Seahawks hard hats, and a lunch pail with a thermos!
