Let the Derision Begin: Alexander Back in Practice

Last year we would have rejoiced at this topic. This year, I clutch my Seahawks Foam Head with trepidation. Seahawks Insider reports that Mike Holmgren intends to put Shaun Alexander back in the lineup against the Eagles this Sunday.

But this will be in a seriously reduced role, right? Not so fast. Holmgren also indicated that backup RB Mo Morris sprained his ankle last week against the Rams, and that may mean Shaun will be falling in front of defenders, swatting down passes, and blocking like a turnstile for most of the game.

Here we go again.

LATE UPDATE: Mo Morris practiced and may be available after all. Shaun is still wearing the %&#$ing cast.


  1. Main Entry: de·ri·sion
    Pronunciation: \di-ˈri-zhən\
    Function: noun
    Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French, from Late Latin derision-, derisio, from Latin deridēre
    Date: 14th century
    1 a: the use of ridicule or scorn to show contempt b: a state of being derided
    2: an object of ridicule or scorn
    3: How you feel about 2*2*2

  2. Is God involved at all? I'd like to hear his opinion. He obviously hates Andy Reid and Mc Nafro, so I'm thinking Shaun is a full go.

  3. I can't speak for God, but my Seahawks Foam Head is nodding as I read your post aloud.

  4. McNafro...that's so funny I'm going to have to work it into a future lolhawk piece!

    I love the third definition there Bloof, although the Dueces and I have kissed and made up on the Blue.
