Yeah, I took a break from blogging. But I'm back, and so is this feature.
- You've probably already heard the Seahawks acquired former first round pick Jason Babin in trade for discouraged safety Michael Boulware. Did you know Babin is a rancher? Did you know what he thinks of his opportunity in Seattle? King5 shares a moment with the new defensive end:
Seems like a GREAT move. I love it, man." Babin, generously listed at 6-foot-3, 267 pound, said with a big smile Monday night after his first Seattle practice. "Got a team that's got a chance at Super Bowl. Can't want anymore than that."
- As if there wasn't enough reasons to hate Steve Kelley, he writes a nice article about the most overrated Seahawks player. Don't get me wrong, I respect Chris Gray. I just wish he would get out of the way so a young, strong, althletic guard could take his place, even though he will make some mistakes along the way.
- George Bush blesses Hasselbeck and Strong. What else is there to say?
I want to thank Matt Hasselbeck and Mack Strong. These are champs. (Applause.) These men are champs on the field and they're champs off the field. And they set such a fine example for people who look at the Seattle Seahawks and they look at these players and say, gosh, I'd like to be like them. And I thank you for being such good family men, setting such a good example for the kids here. And I'm honored to have the jersey. (Applause.)
