Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Tuesday, October 25 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Seahawks Rookies Kenneth Walker III & Coby Bryant Earn Praise For Week 7 Performances
Seahawks fans tuning into Good Morning Football today were greeted by rookie running back Kenneth Walker III and rookie corner Coby Bryant atop host Peter Schrager’s Fabulous Five for Week 7. This segment of the NFL Network daily broadcast is comprised of Schrager's best rookie performers each week, with Seattle landing the two top spots following their 37-23 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
At No.2 comes Bryant, the league's current forced fumbles leader (4). Bryant lands a spot ahead of former Cincinnati Bearcats teammate and current New York Jets rookie corner Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner. Schrager discussed what the Seahawks have in Bryant on the live broadcast.
"He was all over the field," said Schrager. "Had himself a day. You look at these Seahawks rookies, obviously you have the running back (Kenneth Walker III), and the two offensive tackles (Charles Cross and Abraham Lucas) who are starting. Tariq Woolen is a stud, he's one of the guys in the defensive backfield. Coby Bryant is the other."
Bryant's first interception of the year didn't count due to a penalty, but he did record six combined tackles (5 solo) as Seattle held the Chargers to 23 points.
"The rookies in Seattle are a story guys," said Schrager.
At No.1 comes Walker, who is now tied for No.7 league-wide in rushing touchdowns, after carrying the ball 23 times for 168 yards and two scores against the Chargers. Walker is now third in yards per carry (6.1) and knocking on the top-15 in rushing yards with 411.
Kenneth Walker for six, Raible style:
"Kenneth Walker, this dude's a beast," said Schrager. "Now he's getting the No.1 carries, it's not even a question this guy's going to be toting the rock for them all season."
Schrager finishes the segment by praising Seahawks general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll for having a "smirk all summer" as national media determined Seattle would "stink."
Sentiments may be changing in the national media's eye about the Seahawks' potential this season, but the team remains focused on the task at hand. That task for this week is defeating the New York Giants.
