I’m taking a little R&R this week with family here in the desert. So that, along with the down time for the league, means there will not be a lot of posts on the blog this week.
I will however check in periodically if there’s news, and I have a couple blog posts planned for this week. And you may see a Ryan Divish appearance this week as well if I can coax him to take a break from Mariners’ stuff. Here’s a few links I dug up this morning.
Peter King of Sports Illustrated addresses the possibility of Michael Vick reuniting with ex-Atlanta Falcons head coach Jim Mora, saying it has no legs.
Here’s an excerpt.
1. I think, for those of you speculating that Vick could end up with his former NFL coach, Jim Mora, in Seattle, partly because there’s no quarterback of the future behind Matt Hasselbeck, I can assure you that Vick and Jim Mora will never be on the same team again. Let’s just say it didn’t end too well the last time they were together. Not just the ending, but the middle part, too. The entire Atlanta organization wasn’t crazy about Vick’s work ethic in the offseason. It’s illogical to think Mora would stake any portion of his future on Vick.
2. I think, though, when the Seattle quarterback depth chart is looking as if it will be Hasselbeck, Seneca Wallace and the immortal Mike Teel, it’s pretty logical to wonder why you wouldn’t consider bringing Vick in-house.
Dave Boling of the TNT says quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s is looking healthy this offseason.
Rob Rang of CBS Sports counts rookie Seahawks receiver Deon Butler as one of the rookies around the league making a good first impression.
ESPN’s John Clayton talks with offensive coordinator Greg Knapp about the zone blocking scheme and the running back situation. It’s about 19 minutes into this audio file. Knapp says he will not used the fullback as much as in the past, with more two, tight end sets.
