Good morning, 12s. Happy first day of fall! Here's a look at what's happening today – Wednesday, Sept. 22 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
Damien Lewis Joins 710 ESPN Seattle's "Wyman and Bob"
Seahawks second-year guard Damien Lewis has been a constant force on Seattle's offensive line since being drafted in the third round last year.
He started all 16 games in 2020, allowing just three sacks and being named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team. The LSU alum allowed just three sacks as a rookie and thrived in run blocking, according to Pro Football Focus.
Lewis battled through a groin injury and played 83% of the Seahawks' offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Titans. Despite the result, the home opener was extra special for Lewis, who spent his entire rookie season playing in an empty Lumen Field.
On Tuesday, Lewis joined 710 ESPN Seattle's "Wyman and Bob" for their player spotlight interview. Lewis spoke about how long a loss sits with him, how he feels physically after Week 2 and what it was like playing in front of 12s. He also discussed how he analyzes his game film, his workout schedule during the season and what it was like playing for Ed Orgeron at LSU.
You can listen to the full interview here and read some of the highlights below:
On how long a loss sits with him as a player:
"It was a really tough game, tough loss to lose like that at home in front of the crowd. But it's a long season. We got 17 games. We can't get stuck on every game, we have to move on. It's in the past now, and we're just looking forward to this week, building on these days and just trying to get better."
On how he feels physically, and if health limited him in Week 2:
"No sir. I'm 100 percent, I'm feeling great, healthier than I've ever been. There's a little ache here, but no setbacks and I'm just ready to go. Looking forward to this week."
On experiencing the 12s at Lumen Field for the first time:
"This was my first time with the crowd at this stadium and they were going nuts. I couldn't even hear myself think out there. The place already doesn't have a roof, but they were blowing the roof away. I felt the vibrations. That crowd was loud out there."
On what it's like blocking for Chris Carson:
"Chris is going to be Chris. He's a hard-nosed running back who's going to get all the yards he's going to get. He's a team player. Everybody loves him here, so he's a great (running) back. I'm glad that I'm blocking for him."
