Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, Aug. 10 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Doug Baldwin's Training Camp Takeaways
Saturday's "Mock Game" that took place during the Seahawks' eighth practice of the summer signaled the end of what Doug Baldwin dubbed "phase two" of training camp, and the Seahawks wide receiver took to his Facebook page to post a few more notes about what he's seen so far.
Here's what Baldwin had to say about Seattle's first eight workouts of 2015:
1. Cassius Marsh and Frank Clark are starting to come into their own. It's exciting to watch these young guys excel because they have worked extremely hard to do so. I have a strong feeling our pass rush has the potential to be dominant from top to bottom.
2. During our practices prior to the Super Bowl earlier this year, Dion Bailey got my attention. His athleticism and football IQ showed up again these past few days when he made several impressive plays from the safety position. He's got the speed to play deep and is aggressive enough to play close to the box. Keep your eye on this guy.
3. The offense has made big strides this last week. As a group, we are way ahead of where we were this time last year. The chemistry between Russ and the WR's is evident and we are starting to find our identity earlier than previous years. It is going to be exciting to watch it all play out.
The Seahawks' ninth practice of training camp takes place today at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center. The team will hold two more practices open to the public this week (on Tuesday and Wednesday) before hosting the Denver Broncos on Friday night at CenturyLink Field in the first preseason game of the year. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. PT with television coverage on Q13 FOX and NFL Network.
