Not a lot happening at VMAC today. Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson took the podium.
Sherman was asked why he thinks the Seahawks have been so adept at snagging draft picks outside of the first round who have turned out to be quality players. He had an interesting answer.
“It helps when you don’t listen to the idiots in the (TV) draft room,” Sherman said. “You know what I mean? When you don’t listen to the idiots you find players like Jeremy Lane, Byron Maxwell, myself, Russell Wilson and the list goes on. If you sit there and listen to the idiots like Mel Kiper and Todd McShay and people like that, you miss a lot of good players.”
> Russell Wilson said he “loves the blitz” because there is a lot of green grass behind it. He should be thrilled Sunday then. Arizona blitzes about half the time and did it almost 70 percent of the time in the first game against Seattle this year.
> Wilson said his No. 1 goal is to be consistent and said he has been better at that this season.
> Wilson also said that Marshawn Lynch “could play receiver in the National Football League.”
> Sherman said he thinks that Arizona is a more confident team at this point.
> Sherman also said he thinks the team as a whole is “finally getting close to playing up to our potential.”
> To fill Brandon Browner’s roster spot, the Seahawks signed WR Bryan Walters from the practice squad and re-signed DT Michael Brooks to the practice squad.
> Kam Chancellor was not fined for his 15-yard personal foul in the Giants game. Chancellor said he tried to pull his head back and even lightened up on the hit, yet was still flagged.
