Observing the 12th Man: Aaron Curry, Defensive End?

Chris Sullivan of Seahawks Addicts looks into the possibility of a 3-4 defense in Seattle. After hearing that Aaron Curry may take some snaps at defensive end, Sullivan couldn’t help but think about how Seattle’s defense could transform in the future.

John Morgan of Field Gulls looks back at Will Herring’s 2008 season. Offering an extremely favorable report on the young linebacker, Morgan notes that Herring could see some additional playing time at weak side linebacker if Curry occasionally plays at defensive end.

Dave Krieg’s Strike Beard is not a fan of San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary. Singletary was a great player and can talk tough, but that does not guarantee success as a head coach in the NFL.

Jeff Richards of Next Season Sports continues a countdown of the top ten moments of the decade. The latest entry: Hasselbeck leads fourth-quarter comeback against Chargers in 2002.

Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times briefly analyzes the secondary’s recent struggles and how it may impact next season. Without a complete overhaul, can the Seahawks expect to see better play from a secondary that allowed more passing yards than anyone last season?
