The Seahawks have excelled since the PED suspensions were announced, and while Browner served his suspension, the Seahawks got to see some exceptional play at CB from more rookies and young players. Now, with Sherman winning his appeal and Browner coming back for the playoffs, is our Defense even stronger now? Hard to believe, but I say yes.

(Oh, and John Clayton can suck it)

I say YES as well. The chip on their shoulder got a little bigger.

It very well may prove to be some sort of motivational, galvanizing type thing that gets the team believing that: 1, The league is out to get us so we are going to show them, and 2, We now know that we can overcome adversity and we have good players top to bottom.

The charmed season continues

Lane, Thurmond, Maxwell, and even Ron Parker are all better players than three weeks ago. Real experience.

Adversity is opportunity.

I say yes. Good to have the young pups get some playing time in case someone goes down in the game against the rams, or if someone gets hurt during the playoffs.

Didn't hawkblogger lay out the same argument prior to suspensions......something makes me remember that. I didn't agree with the rest of his blog but remember that part

LOL...well ya. But something tells me he may get some of that back from somewhere. I just hope Browner comes back ready to shred.

INVALUABLE experience for guys like Lane and Maxwell.

Marcus Trufant just got permanently benched which is a good thing. Lane and Thurmond will be the nickel players? Man, I am so excited for the playoffs now.

Thurmond was hurt most the time. I think he got like 5 min experience due to the suspension.

I hope that we can put Thurmond in as the nickel receiver. Tru should get a parade, but I'm ready to move on. A nickel set with Browner, Sherman, Kam, Earl, and Thurm? That's nasty.

No, he played a whole game. Which tripled his previous in game experience.

I agree. Our CB depth needed to be tested in order to see if anyone's a likely candidate to replace Browner sooner or later.

It's also going to be fantastic to have Lane and Maxwell's confidence on the rise when they're lining up across from the feisty little slot receiver bastards we're going to see against the Falcons, Redskins, Packers (and maybe) Broncos and Patriots.

From a reputation standpoint, no--and I'm not just talking about fan opinion. The league will likely assume, like many others, that all three guys were guilty regardless of what is or isn't true. And they'll look harder at the team going forward. Browner and Guy also lost four games, practices, etc., and paychecks.

On the other hand, the situation forced us to use depth players in game situations, which was invaluable to their development.

Overall, I'd prefer not to have had the suspensions occur, but I'm very glad the team was able to mitigate the circumstances.

The accusation probably cost Sherman the pro-bowl, and maybe all-pro honors. Words cannot describe how much that bothers me. He's right up with with Wilson as my favorite Seahawk. I thought he was snubbed last year, so this is salt in the wound.

We are better off for it. And Sherman has a really huge chip on his shoulder going into the playoffs (and next season). So I guess it turned out very well for us. But honestly, I'd gladly give all of those perks up in a heartbeat if it meant Sherman getting his all-pro. I am an irrational fan.

I find it interesting that so many DB's were tested and found positive over the last couple of months, seems very weighted considering WR's RB's and LB's should be represented in the same amount or at least closer.

best part is marcus trufant is getting replaced, i love you trufant but youve been holding this elite defense back.

I do hope he returns as a DB coach one of these days though

Yes, for all of the reasons above.

Browner is also going to be rested and fresh. Now, will he be rusty ? That's the biggest question for me to answer. It's possible he could be facing Dez Bryant next week.
