Bennett's take on the secondary...
Wed Apr 24, 2013 1:41 pm
  • Pretty neat.


    “I’ve never played with a secondary with this caliber of talent,” Bennett said. “That’s one of the unique things about this defense and this team. I’ve played with some OK secondaries since I’ve been in the league, but this is my first time playing with a secondary like this.”

    And make no mistake, the Seahawks were Bennett’s destination team even before he hit free agency last month.

    “I turned down money to come here, and came here on just a one-year contract,” he said. “This is where I wanted to be. I love this place.”

  • It certainly is a long way from the days where players like Kris Dielman would only look at the Seahawks as leverage for a bigger contract elsewhere.

    Awesome indeed!

  • I think most of us realized that players took less money or smaller deals to come here this year but it is nice to see some of these guys coming out and making public statements to that fact. It's no longer just a rumor that players want to come here and will take less to do so but it's a fact. That will surely give us leverage with agents going forward that we are a desired destination and only play into Pete and Johns hands even more.

  • What is more important an SB ring or the money? The players know they are going to have work hard to make it happen. Just fattening the wallet and collecting a paycheck, no glory. If they reach that goal they will get paid.

    Not necessarily. If sports agents are anything like literary agents, best fit for future potential is at least as much a factor as cost of contract. Maybe more. "Best deal for the client" is the sentiment, which isn't necessarily "show me the money!"

    Yep, ever since this FO has been here players are interested in this place.

    Amazing what a change of philosophy will accomplish and about 725 personnel changes.

    The fact the team is winning again, has great ownership, excellent facilities, treats their players fairly, has great coaches, and is prepared to put aside many staid preconceptions regarding veterans doesn't hurt either.

    The future is looking brighter and brighter!
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken. The OLine still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    Agreed. For future negotiations, it'll be "Super Bowl" linebacker, D-Lineman, whatever. That will add value to the player, and it's definitely a win for the agents in the long run.

  • It probably worked out better for Bennett that he got cut since he went to a team that was willing to use him. Though keeping a kicker over him was and still is a idiotic choice of monumental proportions.

    I think we benefit mightily from getting him back after getting some regular season snaps in Tampa.

    To me, this was Ruskell's unforgivable sin, not the Hutch thing. Too many moving parts in that one, but the Bennett thing was all Ruskell.
