“We’re going to be good…Real good. Everybody stays healthy, ah man. We’re going to be something special. The talent we have on this team and then coach Mora brings everything together just right. Cool dude. Not because I just got there, but everything I’ve seen from Jim Mora has showed me that we’re going to be really good just the way he relates to the players. The other coaches he has on the staff, Greg Knapp, ah man, I couldn’t believe it. Just being around him the short period of time I’ve been around him, I’m surprised his name hasn’t been brought up for a head coach.
Gus Bradley walks around the building with a smile on his face. High energy. We’re going to be good. I can’t wait to smack some people in the face.
They didn’t put us on TV so when we start running through everybody like a wet paper bag, don’t flex us in late in the season when we’re the best. Don’t flex us in, we’ll have our coming-out party in the playoffs.”
For a Seahawk fan, this is fantastic. It has been so long since we heard something this exciting; usually it is a bunch of double-talk and clichéd jargon – but “Housamazooli” (Championship!) seems to have actual pride about what is happening with the Seattle team.
That is painfully obvious after Shaun Alexander’s complaining in San Francisco the other day, (If you haven’t heard it, you can hear it here) where he threw the front-office under the bus saying:
“Sometimes, unfortunately, I was only compared to myself, you know what I mean? So it’s like, ‘Oh, you’re not doing the same thing, we’re getting rid of you.’ So it’s like, ‘OK, who are you going to bring in to replace him’. I don’t even think they had combined the yards I had with a broken hand, a buckled knee, you know At the end of the day, you’re like, ‘OK, well, if you’re comparing me to me, I wasn’t the same, but if you compare me to them, you probably would have stuck with me if you would have thought about it.’ “
Not to burst his bubble, but Jones, Duckett and Morris did outpace Alexander (who would have most likely declined further…he couldn’t even catch on in Washington).
Guys like “Hooshamazood” (Championship!) are the anti-Alexander: they are going to tell you what you want to hear but still be honest and back it up. They won’t say they were “stabbed in the back” because they didn’t get their stats. And they won’t smile about things when they are defintley not good.
Let’s hope that “Howsyourvanilla” (Championship!) rubs off on the other players.
