he's had a year off to train and rehab and has said a few weeks ago he feels ready.

he's going to do more than 6-8 plays during this run.
He's going to finish the season with 5.5 sacks
I'll be content with him giving Justin/RayMac a breather for about 10-12 plays a game and not get blown off the line of scrimmage on 1st/2nd down. Talk about being thrown into the fire, he'll be asked to sink or swim with his first NFL snap. I guess I'm just not expecting much out of a rookie coming off a major injury, going against NFL interior linemen, who are the biggest of the big boys.

I'll take the under please.
Damn i'm so excited for the Carolina game to see our DLine with Tank and Aldon coming back. This season is looking so much better then it did week 3. I almost jumped off a bridge.

he can have instant impact like any other top draft pick coming into the nfl playing their first game. he's healthy. completely 100% healthy he was probably at 80% coming into the 1st game of the season..and they waited 8 weeks after that point

Me too.
I am excited to see Tank play, still think it would be epic if Tank and Dial have Reid like talent and make big contributions going forward.

I know it's not the same, but at least he is getting two weeks of practice before his first snaps...much better than being pressed into duty on the fly.
Reinforcements are on their way.

lol, i wonder if seahawk fans were as delusional about YOLO Williams as we are with Tank.
