Okung named Pro Bowl starting Left Tackle!

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13

    I was pretty nervous after that first Arizona game, but he really elevated his game after that and has been fantastic ever since. Well deserved.

    :13: He got healthy and his play the rest of the season was Pro Bowl level no doubt. Here's to big Russ staying healthy the remainder of his career.

  • Okey destroys defensive players. He throws them around and laughs and laughs and laughs. All day long. We've got the second leading rusher in the NFL. We can rush on anybody. Weren't the Niners first against the rush? This not by accident. Just watch the huge goddamn holes our oline rips in the defense. ... l-vacation

  • To replace a Hall of Famer with Russell Okung is a sign of a blessed franchise.

    Seriously. With all the other news on the day regarding Sherman, this kind of gets lost in the shuffle. Congrats to the man, he's persevered through a lot to get to this point. Everyone wondered if we'd ever see another Walter Jones and while we probably won't, we've gotta love Okung for being Russell Okung. Which is a damn fine player.

    Funny how people ragged on him and Leon Washington and now they're both Pro Bowlers.
