Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com thinks that Owen Schmitt should receive discipline equivalent to Donte Stallworth, whose drunk driving killed a man last March. Because Schmitt was in a position to “learn from Stallworth’s mistake,” Florio thinks that Schmitt should be suspended for the entire year.

Aaron Weinberg of Next Season Sports investigates how “Runaway Beer Truck” became Owen Schmitt’s nickname at West Virginia. It is ironic that the “Runaway Beer Truck” was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The blogger at Dave Krieg’s Strike Beard supports Owen Schmitt receiving severe punishment. I agree that Schmitt demonstrated very poor judgment and his actions were nothing short of stupid, but a first offense shouldn’t draw a punishment equivalent to a manslaughter charge, in my opinion.

Rob Staton of Rob Staton’s Seahawks Draft Blog has a cool video posted that features Aaron Curry talking sports cards at the rookie shoot for Topps TV. He also has a video available of Deon Butler, another Seahawks rookie.

Chris Sullivan of Seahawks Addicts put together a nice list of the top ten Seahawks players of the decade. At the top of the list: Walter Jones. I couldn’t agree more; Jones is arguably the greatest Seahawks player of all time.
