    I’m a little surprised we have 7 linebackers and only 2 eight Ends. I see us picking up a TE on waivers and releasing Heath Farwell. What happens when Irvin and Harvin return? Any chance Tom Cable could train a Lineman to long snap? Such a waste of a roster spot.

    • Hawk_Eye

      Sorry, should read tight ends.

    • skeletony

      Release Farwell?! That seems odd considering how good that guy is on special teams. I would rather they released Sweazy.

      • 12thMan_Rising

        Farwell’s impact on Special teams isn’t was it used to too. Team actually has better special teamers now, and the overall quality of it’s units means there’s really no need for a guy who can’t contribute on defense as well. I expect him to be released when they sign a TE.

        • skeletony

          You may be right about that. I did not take notes on the special teams play but it seemed like Farwell was still doing his thing when I was watching. I guess we will find out soon enough…

  • Hawkman54

    Farwell might get released later , BUT I told you all he would make the 53- HE DID !

    • skeletony

      Yeah I know he is a ‘special teams’ guy but he is pretty good at what he does and I think our special teams will have to be good this year if we want to go to and win the Super Bowl. I hope we keep him.

  • Hawkman54

    Besides the injuries on the D-line – My biggest concern is the O guard play , especially at ORG – Sweezy was so inept against the Pack it was ridiculous!

    • 12thMan_Rising

      everyone was in that game. He played fine one the drive against the Raiders. We’ll see. There isn’t a solution out there. learning the zone blocking scheme takes considerable time. They can’t just plug another guy in there who hasn’t been with the team in camp, and none of the backup guards are any sort of an upgrade.

      Did you really study Sweezy’s play closely, or is this a rough general impression? What specifically do you think he did wrong?

      I studied it fairly closely and he looked fine. Even the holding call was very questionable. Now that Carpenter is playing, the Hawks can use McQuistan at RG, but they won’t because Sweezy is better.

    Practice Squad prediction:

    Michael Brooks
    Sean McGrath
    Ryan Seymour
    Jared Smith
    Siliga
    Ty Powell
    Shead
    Jaye Howard

    Honorable mention:

    Cherrington
    Chris Harper
    Ron Parker

    • bobk333

      Forgot about Fells and Helfet at TE, who could make the PS, especially if MCGrath gets signed by another team.

  • bobk333

    Farwell is and will be a lock.

    The Seahawks take special teams seriously and their special teams were spectacular during the preseason, maybe the best I have ever seen. It is definitely a major consideration when deciding who to keep and who to drop.

    Farwell is the greatest special teams player of all time, imo. Coach Brian Schneider is fantastic, maybe the Seahawk assistant who would make the best head coach. Farwell is like another coach for special teams — and a great one at that — the way he analyses video and schemes. These are two smart guys who have embraced special teams play their entire careers. Farwell totally embraced special teams even when he was a superstar LB in college.

    The leadership with Schneider and Farwell is great, Hauschka has become a great kicker, Ryan is great, the athletes are great, the commitment from the head coach and players is great. The Seahawks special teams as far as coverage, returns, blocks, FG kicking and punting will be — by far — the best in the league.

    As good as the defense and offense are, the special teams is, relative to the rest of the league, the best squad on the team. I think they are worth almost a touchdown a game — adding much more value than some marginal second teamers who are cut — and the closer the game the more valuable they are.

    I think the decision to cut Sean McGrath was based on all the young athletes who could take his place on special teams. Why do they need a third TE on the 46- man active squad unless they need him for special teams. McGrath can be parked on the practice squad and brought up in case of injuries. As far as speed and muscle for their special teams, the Hawks added Mayowa, Lotulei, Bradford, Willson, Coleman, Shofield and Ware to go along with an already strong squad from last year.

    What do you all get from the Hawks trading for a DT from Jacksonville? Did Thurmond’s play cause the release of Winfield?
