Seahawks Cyber surfing: Monday

Published on June 13, 2011 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

Good evening. Here’s what’s “out there” about the Seattle Seahawks for today, June 13 – and was “out there” over the weekend:

Prompted by a question from a reader, Mike Sando of ESPN.com revisits the free-agent wide receivers the Seahawks have signed or acquired during Matt Hasselbeck’s tenure as starting quarterback. It’s a group that includes T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Deion Branch, Joe Jurevicius, Nate Burleson and Bobby Engram. Says Sando: “None of the wide receivers Seattle has signed in free agency during the Hasselbeck era were coming off a Pro Bowl-caliber season when he signed with the Seahawks. Therefore, no one should be surprised that the free-agent receivers Seattle signed during this era failed to reach that level with the team. That is the most direct, succinct answer to your question.”

Friday, we offered an item on the most underrated and overrated players on each NFL team. Sando provides his list of the most underrated players in the NFC West. His choice for the Seahawks: “Leo” defensive end Chris Clemons, who produced a career-high 11 sacks in his first season with the team and was Seahawks.com’s choice as defensive player of the year.

Sando on Clemons: “The Seahawks hoped Clemons would benefit from a change of scenery in 2010, but there was no indication the seventh-year veteran would suddenly become one of the better pass-rushers in the league. Clemons collected a team-high 11 sacks in his first season with the team. His toughness stood out. Clemons played through injuries and brought needed attitude to the defense. After six seasons with three other teams, the 29-year-old Clemons appears to have found a home in Seattle. He was particularly productive against NFC West teams, collecting seven of his sacks against division opponents and adding one more during the postseason.”

Sando also provides an update on recent polls that appeared on his NFC West blog, including the Seahawks organization and Qwest Field being the top vote-getters in the division in their respect polls.

John Clayton at ESPN.com puts Seahawks linebacker David Hawthorne on his all-underrated team. All Hawthorne has done is lead the team in tackles the past two seasons – from two different positions. Clayton on Hawthorne: “Some of these underrated players are classic overachievers. David Hawthorne of the Seahawks was a top special-teams player, but injuries at the Seahawks linebacking corps gave him starts. Hawthorne made the most of them. He’s had 117 and 106 tackles over the past two seasons and continues to get better each year.” Also on the team is Rob Sims, the guard the Seahawks traded to the Lions last year.

As for the give-us-this-day-our-daily-labor-update item, we offer Albert Breer’s blog posting from NFL.com. Breer says representatives from the owners and players have been holding face-to-face meetings in between the talks that took place last week and those scheduled for this week. Breer labels that “another sign of the seriousness of these talks.” Please let him be right.

Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com has this review of the labor situation, complete links to other articles.

Here at Seahawks.com, we continue our series of stories reviewing the first 35 seasons in franchise history with a look at 1977, when an expansion team took a giant step toward becoming a team. We also provide a glimpse of then-coach Jack Patera through the memory of Sherman Smith, the leading rusher on that team who now coaches the Seahawks running backs.
