What player(s) are you most excited to see tomorrow night?

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • I was just curious what player(s) everyone is most interested and/or excited to see play tomorrow night?

    For me it's Christine Michael, along with other draft picks: Jordan Hill, Jesse Williams and Luke Wilson.
    I think Avril, Bennett, Winfield etc. will all contribute and we know what they can do. But, the way Beast Mode runs the ball, he needs some relief imo. I'm hoping that Michael and Turbin get enough carries to keep Lynch fresh later in the season. With Clem fighting to get back, Irvin suspended for 4 games, hopefully Jordan Hill and/or Jesse Williams will step it up, and with the quickness. A lot to ask of a rookie, but they should get some reps in the rotation.

  • The more I see, read and hear about Michael makes me want to see him in action! How cool would it be to have the total Ball-busting Running corps to compliment the Defense and the emerging Passing game! After that the Winfield and Thurmond competition is going to spark some intrigue. Followed closely by the Avril, and Bennett additions and whether Clemon's is good to go from the off!

    Speaking of Steve Williams (okay If he catches on, I'm calling him Dr. Death) I found this good article by Doub about him. Might have been posted here before, might not have been, but here it is anyway...

  • Christine Michael and the whole front seven in every permutation. Am I wrong to be getting a little excited about that front seven? It seems like the secondary in that we are going to end up cutting some guys that will contribute elsewhere and maybe even start. It doesn't have the in-season performance that the secondary does, but in terms of potential, wow.

  • Since the game is going to be mostly scrubs, I'm not terribly excited about any individual player just yet. However, that also means I'm interested in seeing how rises out from the muck.

    Based on what I've been reading the past couple of days re player injuries and who is practicing and who left practice early, I'll be surprised to see Michael and #51 play tomorrow night.

    Speaking of Vandal bias, is Korey Toomer still hurt? I remember he was on the non-football injury list. He still on it?

    Benson Mawoya and Allen Bradford are the two that immediately come to mind.

    Mayowa - DE or OLB?

    Allen - ILB?

  • NinerBuff: Pretty much. Mawoya will be at DE at the LEO/9-tech and Bradford is looking for playing time at MIKE next to Bobby Wagner.

    I think that, if you are watching the game tomorrow, you will want to focus on the front seven in terms of UDFA/low draft picks if you want to get an idea of where that sort of competition is for Seattle. I would also bring up John Lotulelei at LB as a UDFA that the regime is excited about, as well as Jesse Williams (of course) at 3-tech.

  • FA sign up Stephen Williams will probably make some noise. He was an UDFA in AZ and they let him go, we picked him up before OTA's.

    So, as an under the radar signing, this would probably qualify for me: an UDFA that cut by the freaking Cardinals.

  • I saw Christine M. play his entire college career (he was on a rival team) and I believe that he is honestly "average" at best. Lynch is and will definitely be better, and maybe Michael can be a factor in year two or so. This year, I think he will contribute positively, but don't expect a game changer.

  • New DL players; specifically Williams and Hill. Also want to see if Howard has made a real jump towards being a quality contributor.

    For me it's all about the pass rush with the interior being the more pressing need.

    As a secondary goal, the OL performance of the rookies to see if we picked up another late round Gem again.

  • Christine Michael

    You're going to see Christine Michael right off the bat," Carroll said. "I don't mind telling you that. I'm kind of anxious to see that myself."

    Percy Harvin's absence leaves an opening at kickoff returner, and Michael – the running back Seattle selected out of Texas A&M – is going to get first crack. Cornerback Jeremy Lane and receiver Golden Tate are also considerations.


    Expect a good deal of the carries to wind up in the hands of Michael on Thursday night.

    "He's going to get a load," Carroll said.

    I don't get this one. Most of the guys on the opposing coverage teams won't be on NFL rosters ever again. You see guys in the preseason all the time that return kicks back and get cut the next week.

    Defense . . . DT's Hill and Williams and CB Thurmond.
