    Reggie shouldn't and won't cave. You don't let a guy hold you hostage like that. If Penn had a better track record with the front office he probably could have come in on time and asked for the bump and got it with no issues but with the turbulence last year as well I doubt he even thought about that. I can't wait til we replace this dude. And Newhouse isn't garbage. Look good last game tho I wouldn't like the depth going into the year with what we have minus Penn at the position.

    None of those guys are edge players though, or have a lot of experience at holding an edge and turning runs inside keeping outside contain. Bowman, Smith and Foster all have the ability, or should/used to, to make pursuit plays, to be in coverage, and the athleticism, quickness and instincts to read the blocking and shoot gaps to make plays. That ability is mitigated if we put them on the line and allow blockers to get hands on them immediately. Is there much difference between the SAM and LEO? That I'm not too sure on, it seems that their roles can switch depending on how we are lining up according to the defense. With the exception of course that maybe the SAM drops back into coverage a bit while the LEO has more pass rushing responsibility. But again, those roles could switch on any given play. Brooks as @Forge said is our starter at SAM and has experience setting and edge and getting after the QB, Harold to some extent does as well, Watson seems capable of doing the same, all to varying degrees of success mind you. I don't think we'll see Armstead, Lynch or Dumervil drop into coverage too often so our SAM needs to be able to do both. Our MIKE and WILL are your more traditional LBs. All that being said we are talking about very average players or common players in the NFL. In order to have trade value a player must stand out in a certain area whether I'd be age, athleticism, potetential, pass rushing ability, etc. and be valued enough for another team to give up something to acquire said player. None of Brooks, Harold, Tank and even Dial really offer anything more than depth to another team I would assume. Maybe Dial can be a two down DT for a team or a base 3-4 DE but how many of those exact players exist in the NFL? Quite a few for probably a cheaper total than Dial would cost, we here about UDFAs and guys getting signed off the street to fill that exact role. Our team is still in the early stages of rebuilding therefor the talent on our team I believe is quite as tempting to other teams as some of us would believe, especially our depth players at that. I would love to be able to move McDonald and Dial for a potential CB, WR, OG, SAM/LEO but I just don't really see us getting any sort of return value for the guys mentioned above, atleast not anything that we don't already have on this team.

    Trip was amesome. Best pasta for sure, pizza was really good, but I prefer American pizza to Italian. Give me LaRosas any day of the week. I will say, Italy was absolutely beautiful. I want to live there one day. I'd recommend anyone spend a week or more there.

    I really hope none of the Tackles that showed up for the team get injured. It would improve his leverage while he is letting his teammates down.

    Sorry for not posting as much, I have been away on business. My thoughts coming into the game last night - I am really looking forward to the Seahawks continuing to build off of their week one victory over the Chargers. Earlier in the off-season when the Seahawks did not sign Colin Kaepernick there was a pretty big fraction of fans who were disappointed because the backup quarterback situation behind Russell Wilson was highly questionable. Last week Trevone Boykin played well and I am hoping he can continue to progress throughout the preseason. Last night it was really obvious to see that Russell Wilson is now healthy. He suffered through nagging ankle and knee injuries last season that really limited his mobility. Last night he looked very mobile and limber. Kasen Williams has been extremely impressive so far in the preseason. He's a big target and seems to have terrific hands, even in tight coverage. On the Vikings side, I have really high exceptions for Dalvin Cook. Really fluid runner and terrific receiver out of the backfield.

    Yep, the main question is which QB is going to take a foothold in this competition. You would hope that they realise that this is an important chance for them to step up and take the starting position. Hoping to see good play from them. If we can get through the game without any more players getting injured that would be a nice bonus. Hoping for some good performances.

    Reports are we turned down a 2nd Round pick before the draft. Guessing it would take a 2 2nds or a 1st and 3rd to pry McCarron away. Most likely won't happen.

    They are doing the New 52 Justice League lineup I believe, though they should have done the same lineup as the "Justice League" cartoon series (except maybe keep Aquaman and lose Hawkgirl, though I wouldn't have been opposed to them keeping Hawkgirl). It's an almost universally loved cartoon series that a huge portion of their target audience grew up on. I still watch that show...it's amazing.

    Watt needs a year with Harrison to put on muscle and get some training for his hands. Just one game but once the tackle locked on he was mostly stuck. What we do not know if that is what he was suppose to do. Contain rather than pass rush. If contain, he did a very good job. Otherwise he was not very good in bending the edge or beating his man. For me the breakout player will be Dupree. I think we see double digit sacks from him this year.

    Im hoping Bud Dupree and/or Arite Burns. I wouldnt be shocked if Jesse James has somewhat out of a breakout year.
