Ladies and gentlemen, family, friends, and followers, welcome to the first installment of SeahawksCentric. SeahawksCentric is a spin off of the Cleavie Wonder blog that focuses on the greatness of the Seattle Seahawks. This blog is not for the casual fan that hopes the team does well this season. This is for the fans that have a Seahawk schedule posted in their cubicle and an extra one in their wallet. For the fans that forget their anniversary, but remember Russell Wilson's birthday. THE DIEHARD FANS THAT KNOW THE SEAHAWKS CAN AND WILL WIN THE SUPER BOWL THIS YEAR!!! If the 12th man is an army SeahawkCentric represents the Green Beret Special Forces.
Unlike the Cleavie Wonder blog SeahawkCentric is completely biased, irrational, and unapologetic in its support of the Seahawks. Some of the statements and opinions will only make sense to those emotionally and psychologically invested in the cause. Outsiders are welcome to read and comment on this blog, but don't expect the cool, calm, and collected responses. I fully expect SeahawkCentric fans and readers to be territorial and down right rude in their defense of the Hawks. As the season goes on we'll see how it shakes out.
The Hawks had their first pre-season game last night and made easy work of the San Diego Chargers 31-10. Although Seattle started out a little sluggish they quickly turned things around with big plays on defense and a strong running game (have you heard this before?). From the 2nd quarter on it was evident the Hawks were the more talented team with a greater sense of purpose. The Chargers looked like they were happy to be playing football while every player in the Seahawks looked like they were auditioning for a starting job. In general the team looked in mid-season form, but a few players stood out more than the rest. Here is the unofficial honor roll list.
John Lotuleilei, Malcolm Smith, and Allen Bradford all had big games. After the Legion of Boom the linebacker position has the most depth and talent on the team.
Stephen Williams definitely made his presence felt getting behind the defense and displaying a nice set of hands. Catching touchdowns in pre-season is a good way to make the team.
Jesse Williams is a massive human being that will eat up lots of space allowing linebackers and safeties to make big plays. Please stay healthy.
Benson Mayowa is a pass rusher that came out of the wood work last night. We all know the importance coach Carroll puts on that skill set so if the trend continues we'll see plenty of this guy all season long.
That's all for now. Until the next time let's all keep a SeahawkCentric state of mind shall we?
