The stories about the Hawks today seem to have taken a specific look at may different players on the team. No problem with that. Take a look and learn about the boys.
Dave Boling is a believer. He lists Logan Payne as the Seahawk most likely to go from unknown to major contributer. One reason Boiling cites that he will be on the field…he excels in run blocking, a new focus for receivers this year.
Frank Hughes takes a look at Josh Wilson, but mostly the fact that he was hazed as a rookie. The team envisions Wilson playing a key role this year, they do from every second round pick in their second year. Frank thinks it will take an injury to get Wilson much time except on special teams.
Scott Johnson takes a look at everybody’s hot button topic of the week, the centers. Not much to evaluate right now, except the backups, and according to Johnson they are struggling.
We have a tail of two backs going in Seattle as well. Clare Farnsworth talks about Julius Jones and the big shoes he has had to fill, first Emmitt, now Shaun. Aaron Fentress of the Oregonian, takes a look at the half of the rotation who knows the system, Mo Mo. Lots of people are discounting Morris already, but he had a career year last year. He may see more touches this year, especially the early part, and I am not ready to count him out.
Lawrence Jackson has little spotlight on Sportsnet, Canada. Lofa says….”He’s a real humble kid. It’s those quiet ones you want to watch out for. You don’t know when they’re going to snap. They don’t say much, and then they let things build up and build up, and then when they get it off their chest, it’s scary. We’re really lucky to have him on our side.”
