Montana’s Brock Coyle, BC’s Kevin Pierre-Louis Threaten Seahawks’ Vets on Stacked LB Unit

What’s up 12′s! Well I only have three position groups to talk about and today we get into the heart and soul of Seattle’s defense. You may have thought that was L-O-B, but not so, at least in my opinion. I’m talking about the LB’s.

Amazingly in consideration of the turnover in today’s NFL, the Seahawks were able to keep their linebacking corps completely in-tact from the Super Bowl, but of course we know it’s never good enough to not improve, so they went out and got at least marginally better this offseason. The Seahawks may have done even better than that though, when all is said and done.

    I tend to agree…Farwell and Morgan will be gone…I like Louis to make the squad…Toomer (they kept him on IR for a reason) may be the Thurman of LB’s maybe even get rotation this year….Coyle has a shot…all of this depends on injuries and how they look in camp…they have a contract year with Wright next year as well…

    • AllCoug’dUp (Joshua Davis)

      Yeah we’ll talk about Wright when the time comes. I think KP-L was brought in to eventually replace Wright cause I don’t think there’s any way SEA can afford that contract on the defensive side along with Wags, Kam, Sherm, Bennett and Thomas all with their big contracts.

        That would make sense…Toomer I guess has been looking real good in mini camp and OTA’s…

          more good points

    You forgot about Korey Toomer, who is coming off Reserve/Non-football Injury.

    Toomer will surely make the 53-man roster and might challenge Irvin and Smith for a starting spot.

    Like they are at every position, the Hawks are loaded at linebacker. Unlike the other positions, everyone is back on this unit. L

    Pete is serious about competition. Because they were already loaded with returning players at every position, there will be fierce battles to make the roster, especially at the backup spots.

    One thing is for sure: the Seahawks will be much better this season than they were last season — there is no comparison.


    • AllCoug’dUp (Joshua Davis)

      Nope I brought up Toomer in my final analysis. He’s not an acquisition though, just returning from injury.

    FCS isn’t D-2 like you’re saying Brock Coyle is, it’s also division 1, just championship subdivision.

    • AllCoug’dUp (Joshua Davis)

      Call it what you want, I still think of it as D-2. I know they changed the names or whatever to make everything below “FBS” seem higher than what they are, but the fact remains FCS is still considered by most college football fans to be D-2.

      • just a guy

        Actually, there have been two “subdivisions” and the so-called “BCS” is officially called “Football Bowl Subdivision.” Your perception is not reality.

    3 Montana O lineman also signed with NFL Teams…they must have had a pretty good program for a smaller school..They have another 9 players currently on NFL rosters even as we speak

    • AllCoug’dUp (Joshua Davis)

      Yes, well Montana is a juggernaut at the FCS level in football. They are usually very good and generally have several who could play at the FBS level

  • justaguy

    Montana is NOT a D2 school and you hurt your credibility when you make such glaringly wrong comments. For chrissakes if you don’t even know what division a school is in (repeatedly) nothing else you write can be trusted. Where was the editor on this one? Mistakes happen, but that is so basic it’s unreal it got published.

  • dave

    FCS schools play and beat FBS schools all the time. Ive never heard of division 2 schools beating or even competing with FBS schools. So those who think FCS and div 2 are they same are way off and should not have the privilege to write about football like they know what they are talking about, or orts for that matter. Get you facts right.
