Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, August 8 - about your Seattle Seahawks one day after their preseason opener against the Denver Broncos:

From The Coach

Pete Carroll said he liked what he saw out of quarterbacks Tarvaris Jackson and Terrelle Pryor, wide receiver Paul Richardson, and defensive end Cassius Marsh during last night's 21-16 exhibition loss to the Broncos in Denver, but the head coach gave a less-than-glowing report of the early work from his team's offensive line.

“We’re just surviving," Carroll said of the Seahawks O-line that was without Pro Bowl center Max Unger (groin), former first-round pick James Carpenter (calf), and Pro Bowl left tackle Russell Okung (toe). "We’re really surviving right now. We have guys on the second team that have been here about three or four days. We are just not very sharp right now, and unfortunately it showed. But we survived it, got through it.”

From The Players

After last night's game,'s Tony Ventrella caught up with the aforementioned standouts Pryor, Richardson, and Marsh, and also managed a one-on-one with rookie linebacker Brock Coyle, who performed well in place of two-time leading tackler Bobby Wagner (hamstring).

You can find all four interviews embedded below.

LB | Brock Coyle | No. 45

DE | Cassius Marsh | No. 91

WR | Paul Richardson | No. 10

QB | Terrelle Pryor | No. 2

From The Owner

Allen Family Foundation is supporting American Red Cross International Services and your gift can help combat crises around the world.
