Seahawks Links: 5-19

The Seattle Seahawks stadium, Qwest Field Event Center, is adding solar panels to its roof.

The solar arrays from Fremont, Calif.-based Solyndra are racks of thin-film CIGS (copper, indium, gallium, and selenide) solar cells shaped like tubes. The racks will cover approximately 2.5 acres, about 80 percent, of Qwest Field, Solyndra announced yesterday.

Unfortunately for the Seahawks, they cannot be sure whether Hasselbeck will re-sign with the team. And as Hasselbeck has said more than once, relatively few Seattle players have stuck around this offseason, in part because few live in the Northwest and also because massive roster changes have made it tough to know which players will return.

Hasselbeck has been throwing with Justin Forsett and John Carlson this offseason, according to various Twitter accounts. Those players and any others hanging out with Hasselbeck this offseason should emerge with a greater understanding of the concepts Bevell is bringing to the passing game.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the Seattle Seahawks agreed upon a noon PT starting time for a recent conference call with season-ticket holders.

How hard was that?

Alas, the NFL will force the Seahawks and other West Coast teams to rise 21 times this season for games kicking off at 10 a.m. in their local markets, despite complaints Goodell acknowledged in that very same call with Seahawks fans. The Arizona Cardinals will play three additional games kicking off at 11 a.m. Phoenix time.
