Richard Sherman says nothing has changed in the Seahawks lockerroom after the suspension of Walter Thurmond and reported pending suspension of Brandon Browner.

“As always, it’s next man up,” Sherman said. “We don’t really have any other feelings toward it. Thurm is still in the lockerroom, still great friend of ours. Great player, great teammate, great man.

“Browner, great teammate, great man, great father. We don’t view them any differently. I’m not disappointed or taken aback with them. Men make mistakes. They’re men and they’re being held accountable and they’re taking it in stride.”

> Russell Wilson reiterated every game is a big game to him, when asked about the excitement for Monday night against the Saints.

> Wilson said he thinks the offense took off late last year because of “our consistent approach to everything.” Wilson said they were getting incrementally better as the season moved along and it all came together toward the end of the season.

> Wilson again said he doesn’t get nervous before games.

> Wilson talked more about his appreciation of Saints quarterback Drew Brees. He said his dad told him he should watch Brees when Brees was at Purdue. Wilson, a Virginia native, said he didn’t know where Purdue was at the time.

> Asked what’s similar about Brees and Wilson, Sherman said, “They’re not particularly tall.” He found that hilarious.

> Wilson said he asked Brees what separated him from year one to year two, then from year two to the rest of his career, and Brees told him to be consistent in his approach.

> Sherman said they just have to be aware of where Darren Sproles lines up throughout the game.

> Sherman said he can take away some thing from what the Patriots and Aqib Talib did to Jimmy Graham, when they held him to zero catches. But, pointed out the the Patriots and Seahawks are vastly different in their defensive schematics.

> Wilson said if he walks into somewhere, like the team cafeteria, and see himself being talked about on ESPN, he walks right back out. That, in part, is a way that he “keeps the noise” out.

    Lol Sherm and his bad jokes

  2. Wilson/Sherm/ET… They are three guys who, IMO, make the HOF if they remain injury free…

  3. SandpointHawk says:

    @ Bobby K…although it’s way too early to say, but in agreement I gotta say…YEP.

    @ Thursday…You get another big…YEP.

  4. BobbyK I agree 100%. Hope to see all three do it in Seahawks blue.

  5. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Agree BobbyK, and Lynch and Harvin has an outside chance Imo.

  6. Speaking of HOF, I was just reading this! Loves how Wilson always trolls.

  7. Excellent link, Q. Funny. But I don’t understand why everyone got all bent out of shape about Favre texting pics of his genitals. Wouldn’t that just fall into the junk mail category?

  8. Can you imagine if New Orleans had been smart enough to draft Wilson?!

    You gotta appreciate what Wilson has accomplished without (1) his father, (2) a strong mentor on the roster at his position, and (3) a former NFL QB as his QB coach.

    How much further would Wilson be right now than he already is if we had Hasselbeck, Zorn, and Wilson in the filmroom this past two years?

    I wonder what Holmgren would have done with Wilson, if he were still our coach. Say anything you like about Holmy and his coaching philosophy…but you sure as hell cannot criticize his work with quarterbacks, except possibly that he left us without an heir to Hasselbeck upon departure.

  9. “junk mail”, clever…LOL

  10. tealskin says:

    Do you think the present coaching staff has not done well with Wilson? Don’t miss Holmgren at all. The only thing that could hold RW back is if the supporting cast isn’t up to snuff.

  11. No, not at all…However, clearly, Wilson the sort of guy who makes the most of his opportunities.

    Holmgren has a brilliant offensive mind, and his work with QBs is legendary.

    Wilson has everything I think Holmgren was hoping for from Seneca Wallace. I think it would have been a great pairing, and it would be fun to see Wilson in a pass oriented offense where he could put up big numbers. But, obviously the situation as it is now is not too shabby either :-)

    I used to be envious of teams like the Patriots who rarely have bad years, but not anymore. I believe we’re seeing the making of a dynasty, a football machine, that hordes talent to the point they’ll eventually be forced to trade draft picks for higher future draft picks, not as a luxury, but out of necessity, just to grab players with the talent to make the roster.

    Am I in a Kool-aid induced stupor? Hardly! In three years…starting with one of the league’s weakest teams…they overhauled the entire roster and built one of the youngest, toughest, most talented teams in the entire NFL…in THREE YEARS!

    What will this team be like six years from now? I think the key is to keep Schneider at the helm. Hopefully, Carroll too…but at least the Carroll coaching tree should produce enough coaches that we can continue his legacy if he retires. Fortunately, he’s the most immature 62-year-old I have ever seen, so it’s hard to see Carroll leaving the game until at least well into his 70s.

  12. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Again Audible, You say it well.

    Nothing more to say except Audible has a good understanding how Carroll and Schneider works together.

  13. Holmy was old school – would he have been willing to start a rookie after he signed a guy to a big contract
