Curry annoyed the hell out of me. He has to be smarter on the field.
Hill is not eligable to play until the second week of the season and his knee is projected to only keep him off the field for a couple of weeks.
Tatupu is not banged up. He had a sore hammy. Its just precautionary benching so Lofa doesn't turn a sore hamstring into a torn hamstring. He will be fine by the regular season.
Something to consider with these guys is how terrible the hawks d-line has been the last few years. Their lack of excution has caused the LBs to step up and be placed in situations that were not condusive to their health. This year our starting d-line will have a combined weight of over 1000lbs. That is a lot of beef for on o-line block. This year our LBs should have more freedom to run around and make plays. Instead of focusing on making up for the lack of ability or our D-line.
Speaking of Curry, and knowing what you know now, who would you rather have? Curry or Crabtree? I live in downtown Seattle and some of my Seahawk buddies were really disappointed you guys passed on him.
I was happy with getting Curry but I thought his impact would be more immediate. Had we not selected him, I would have rather had Sanchez personally. QB is a more important position.
I am not ready to throw in the towel with Curry though. Ken Norton Jr. just needs to tighten the leash and teach Curry how to play a more disciplined game. If Curry does not show drastic improvement between now that the end of the 2011 season then I will consider him a bust. If I remember right it took Julian Peterson a few years before his talent really started to shine through for you guys.
