Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, August 11 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Schneider On The Airwaves
John Schneider joined 710 ESPN Seattle's 'Danny, Dave and Moore' for a 25-minute sitdown interview on Thursday afternoon and the Seahawks general manager commented on a variety of topics as his team readies for its first preseason game this Sunday against the Chargers in Los Angeles. Here's a few highlights:
- On his early impressions of Seahawks training camp: "Really excited about every position, really, especially to play on Sunday night and get going and have these guys compete against other people. It's great to finally get some film against another team and kind of get in that flow of the weekly schedule. The fans have been great, guys have been working their tail off, and we're to that point now — it's time to start playing against somebody else."
- On the Seahawks' running back competition: "Starting with Thomas [Rawls], he's back to himself, really the way he was his rookie year, the way he's attacked it. You guys can see him finishing runs out here and doing the extra things, kind of working himself on the runs and bouncing things outside and really finishing everything, so I'm excited about him. Eddie's [Lacy] doing a great job. It's nice to have C.J. [Prosise] on a consistent basis, he was a little banged up last year, all throughout the offseason had some soft tissue stuff going on and then obviously had the injury against Philadelphia. Alex [Collins] is in great shape, he's 206 pounds and showing great feet. [Chris] Carson's done a nice job. We got Mike Davis back today who we claimed from San Francisco and Mike had a phenomenal preseason last year in San Francisco, so excited about that."
On what traits the best offensive lines he's been around have had:"The cohesiveness. The center that is a smart guy that can think on his feet, has quickness at the second level, and can lead the group. Then guys that can just move in sync, they know what each other's doing. They don't necessarily have to completely give each other signals, they can just tap each other, they can just communicate. It's very similar to wide receivers, like Peyton Manning playing with Marvin Harrison, right? They talk about how they can look at each other and they knew what was shaking."
