According to Howard Balzer of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, the Seattle Seahawks have released safety Kevin Ellison due to a failed physical just days after the team announced his signing.

With Ellison gone, Seattle’s situation at safety remains the same, with Earl Thomas, Lawyer Milloy, Jordan Babineaux, Kam Chancellor and Jamar Adams all competing for time.

  1. Conclusion or concussion? Where did that come from?

    A concussion? Oh come on, that’s nothing a hundred vicodin can’t cure.

  3. snydro22 says:

    I think Eric must have been in a hurry. No reports of a concussion. Most likely his knees.

    Btw, very sad news about Chad Jones, the Giants 3rd round pick out of LSU. In a car accident, and doctors are trying to save his leg.

  4. Must have been one serious concussion.

  5. Window shopping……………

  6. BobbyK – just to touch on your comment on the 1986 team – the end of the year win streak coincided with a much easier schedule than the losing streak that preceded it. Of course, the thrashing of the AFC Champion Broncos tends to skew our feelings on that team.

  7. I can’t say that I remember the specifics of who we played, what their record was, etc. but I can say with certainty that we kicked butt those last 5 games.

    So, doing a google search, I see who we played and what the scores were.

    The Raiders were fighting for the play-offs and sporting an 8-5 season record and we beat them 37-0.

    I’m a big confidence guy, I know we’ve had that debate many times with respect to Matt Hasselbeck (once he trusts, and it is earned trust, his OL, and then WRs, he gets in a groove and it’s easier for confidence/success, etc.), but once the Hawks beat the Eagles 24-20 to get back on the winning track, things got good with 3 of the final 4 games being blowout victories and, as you said, one of the teams being the AFC rep in the Super Bowl. Now, ashamed as I am, I did have to look this up just now and things can fade or grow with time but I remember a lot of media talking about how hot the Seahawks were and they were the team that nobody wanted to face in the play-offs. Luckily for them, the cards didn’t fall in the right place on that final weekend and we missed out on the post-season. That sucked. Then came the Tony Woods, David Wyman, Brian Bozworth love fest for LBs with early picks and thing went downhill. Sure, you can say a division title followed, but all of us who remember knows that our better teams were earlier in the decade; not later in the decade. Then the, gulp, 90s came. Not good.

  8. If I recall correctly Bobby Joe Edmonds (BobbyJ not BobbyK) started the run with a great return TD against the Eagles.

    Of the final 5 games (all were Ws), just the Broncos finished with a winning record. The previous 4 games were all losses but the Seahawks played teams with final records between 10-6 and 11-5.

    But then again, the Seahawks went 2-1 that year against the Super Bowl teams, giving the Giants their only loss in their final 18 teams. So I agree there is a lot of what coulda been memories, but for the most part this team lost against the good teams and beat the bad teams – which is pretty typical of most Seahawks teams in history.
