Tuesday Round-Up: Seahawks Reporters Review a Memorable Media Combine

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about the Seattle Seahawks.


Good afternoon, 12s. 

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, March 1 - about your Seattle Seahawks: 

Seahawks Media Survive The Combine, Mostly

The inaugural Media Combine took place yesterday inside Virginia Mason Athletic Center's indoor practice facility. The results were less than remarkable, but it made for an enjoyable afternoon for the 24 individuals who took part in the six events, including the 40-yard dash, 3-cone drill, shuttle run, broad jump, vertical leap, and 'gauntlet' receiving drill. 

John Boyle at, who finished with the fastest 40-time (5.19 seconds), provides a first-hand account of his involvement, "In addition to Slickhawk crashing and burning, in a full Seahawks uniform no less, other highlights included 710 ESPN Seattle's Liz Mathews going through drills barefoot, 710 ESPN Seattle's Danny O'Neil participating in a suit and headband, KJR's Dick Fain showing off some impressive speed and agility, and so many goofy faces while people ran. As for me, I'm still walking without a limp several hours later, so for me the day was a success."

Gregg Bell at the Tacoma News Tribune recaps his experience, noting he won "the 44-to-46-year-old-with-twins-a-wife-a-dog-and-jet-lagged-from-Indianapolis Division of the Seahawks' first Media Combine."

Bob Condotta at the Seattle Times made "the me of 40 years ago proud" by catching a pass from former Seahawks quarterback and current Ring of Honor member Jim Zorn. 

Seahawks media members, Sea Gals and Blitz competed against each other at the Inaugural Media Combine. See how their faces compared to their NFL Combine counterparts in the 40-yard dash. 

Despite tweaking his back, Nick Patterson at the Everett Herald says he was glad he took part, "It gave those of us who write about the game a chance to experience a small piece of what the players go through, and I think everyone who took part enjoyed themselves. Even those who ended up injured."

Brady Henderson at says the Seahawks players on site "appeared much more entertained than impressed" by the action on the field. 

KING 5 News' Chris Egan received some sound advice from Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman: "Run fast, and try not to tear anything."

Mike Ferreri at KOMO 4 News showed up dressed to impress in a one-piece Seahawks jumpsuit. His goal? "Not to fall and break my face, so I could come to work this afternoon."

And Aaron Levine at Q13 FOX came in looking to break his 40-yard dash time from five years ago, a feat that will unfortunately remain on hold. 

Tweet Of The Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from American Football Without Barriers, an organization led by NFL players that's working to globalize the sport in Cairo, Egypt this week with the help of Marshawn Lynch, who had some fun riding a camel yesterday
