The Seahawks added center Chris Spencer to the injury report on Saturday because he is suffering from a bad back.

Steve Vallos actually was getting reps in practice on Friday, which led to some questions about whether he and Spencer were going to split time during tomorrow’s game. Mike Holmgren laughed and said he didn’t even realize Vallos had been taking snaps. Now we know why.

Spencer missed a bunch of time during training camp because of the back, though it has not bothered him since, at least not that we have been told. This may not be the worst thing, though, because it could give the coaches an idea of what Vallos can do in a regular-season game.

    Vallos needs the look.

    By the way, Ty Willingham is a terrible football coach.

  3. Vallos has already played in a regular season game – he was overmatched. Just when Spencer was getting good – he’s been starting to blow some people away, though the media hasn’t noticed at all – not that they know what to look for.

  4. I wonder how many Seahawks are so good they would start for most teams. On offense there is Walter Jones. On defense, maybe Brandon Mebane. For sure Hill, Lofa and Peterson at LB and Tru at corner. Any others?

    John Carlson might not be there yet but I think it is just a matter of time.

    Spencer has never been good and never will be. It’s about damn time Vallos got to play in real games. I thought Spencer’s shoulder was the problem in camp?

    Kerney when healthy could start for other teams, I think Mebane could too. And Engram.
