Seahawks S Marcus Blair out for season with knee injury


Recommended Posts

As stated in the other thread, this loss is a bigger hit than Irvin. Blair was taking to slot corner like a fish to water. And flashed some major playmaking ability in and around the LOS. Didnt see the field much as a rookie (as Seattle prefers to red shirt rookies on defense. Both Kam and Sherman spent their rookie years on ST and in reserve. KJ started the year behind Aaron Curry) but played really well when given a shot (the Ravens & Falcons game last year are good examples). Posied to be a very important player this year. Sucks to see him cut down just on the cusp of having a huge impact.

That being said, Ugo Amadi is more than capable of replacing Blair as a slot/safety/ST ace. Not sure if has the playmaking ability Blair flashed though.
