Seattle Seahawks announced this afternoon that they released defensive tackle Barrett Moen and replaced him on the roster with defensive tackle Jonathan Lewis.

Lewis was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the sixth-round of the 2006 draft. Lewis also spent time previously in Seattle, along with Oakland, Detroit, Jacksonville and Cleveland.

    I guess he was in camp this week on a tryout basis. I presume he’d be working at RDT.

  2. Sando is no longer the “man”. No mention of Red Bryant being moved to LDE suggests he no longer uses TNT as reference. The ‘SHAME”. Slowly becoming another ESPN blow hard. To bad knowing his large following from this blog.

    Lawrence Jackson and his 1.5 sacks are more than a little concerning. Just hearing that Red may have won the starting position is good news. That is if he can better the unspectacular production of Jackson.

    Lord forbid I must witness Mebane and Bryant eating sushi rampant at Pike Place Market. What an ungodly sight that would be.

    excile – Sando has been on vacation most of this week. That Seahawk DE piece was written by Matt Williamson and yes, it was not very good at all. It read like something that was done in haste rather than anything relevant to what’s been happening this spring. He even mentions that they’ll be running some “true 3-4″. Wrong. Williamson was woefully unprepared to write that article.

  4. Dukeshire says:

    Ellison sure didn’t last long. I’m curious if he failed a drug test, considering his arrest.

    Is Golden cetting a cut of this or was this all part of the master plan…?

  6. Nice save Duke. I should have read the author after clicking More Sando. My bad. And thanx a lot Eric. Lol

    I was in the mood for disagreeing with Sando from the previous article claiming 05 was the best Seahawk team. Over the past decade it hasn’t been a secret that the NFC West has been a cup cake div. The SB representing Hawks faced

    Because the ‘84 team faced much stiffer competition a statistical comparison would make for an inaccurate barometer to use before coming to judgment.
    O-line
    The strength behind the 2005 team.
    QB
    Krieg vs. Hasselbeck – Had Mat played behind the line of “Muddog” we would not be having this discussion.
    WR
    Steve Largent and Daryl Turner carried the team
    RB
    Unfortunately Curt Warner was lost on the first play of the season or again, we would not be having this discussion.

    Overall, the 2005 team led the league in offense. Jones, Hutchinson, Tobeck, Strong, Alexandra and Hasselbeck all made the Pro Bowl. Offensively the 05 team won out over the 84

    DEFENSE
    Green, Nash, Bryant backed by CB Dave Brown and FS Kenny Easley IMO were the stronger unit.

    Losing RB Curt Warner was a tragedy for the ‘84 team as was the officiating tragic in ‘05.

    I would agree that 2005 was a slightly better team but c’mon with 06 & 07… Get a grip!

  7. The greatest Seattle Seahawk team was the December version of the 1986 squad. They were the best team in football the final month and a half of the season. If it would have been today’s NFL where 294,430,393,390 teams make the play-offs, they would have most likely made it and done some serious damage. Instead, their final 5-game winning streak to end the season meant nothing and their 10-6 record wasn’t good enough to get ‘er done. That was the best I have ever seen a Seattle Seahawks team play for an extended period of time (I don’t think ’84, ’06, or ’07 were as good, even though ’83, ’84, and ’05 have been my favorite teams).

    Obviously, I can’t argue that they were better than the Super Bowl team of ’05 but I would argue they were a superior team to what we had in ’06 or ’07. They played in a good division (’06-’07 did not) and that finish had them on top of the world. They were also the only team to beat both Super Bowl participants. Simply put, IMO, that was a great team who got hot too late to overcome a 5-6 start (they finished 10-6).

  8. excile – I totally disagree about your assessment of the 1984 Seahawks offensive line. While they were not as good as the ’05 line, they were a solid unit. They were an asset to Kreig, not a liability. They may not have filled up the Pro Bowl roster, but they were good as a unit. That’s what I pray this years unit can do (but still have my doubts).

  9. Dukeshire says:

    Not sure how fair it is to compare a team’s play for a month to one that spans an entire season. But I get your point.

    I don’t think there is any question the the ’84 defense was the best in franchise history. 38 ints! (Easley had 10) 55 sacks (Bryant and Green had 14 and 13 respectively) Just dominance, pure and simple.
