It eliminates double teams on someone. The OL can handle it however they want, but if they're blocking with six, they can only double one guy.
He has been quiet. I don't think he's been absent though. I think some of the push up the middle has gotten to the QB before him. He needs to have a good run-stopping day tonight.
Play their safeties back and make sure they have someone over the top whenever possible.
It's spread around but it doesn't seem to have decimated them. Most of those affected are backups.
Kind of a weird start time, really. Different for the players. Their schedules were different today.
Typical rookie year for a defensive lineman. He has so much to learn. He was lucky not to have to play every snap. He got a chance to learn from two veteran starters. I think we'll know more next year, but I think he's been fine.
I don't know. You're right, they seem to come out this time of year. Pete Carroll is notorious for them, especially on special teams.
He is not on the injury report.
Yes, we will see that. Whether it's the entire game, I don't know. Depends on how good the game plan is and whether it works.
Typically, I do not stalk them in their homes, so I'm not sure.
Tell me about it!! My parents let me play in the dirt as a kid so I've been exposed to everything.
Not yet. I'm not as quick to give that label. I've learned too long that guys like Kyler Fackrell can come back and bite you in the rear. Just watch and see how much he makes in free agency. Fans wanted to cut him on the spot two years ago.
Saving his energy I would guess. It's also possible he's there just for emergency purposes and Veldheer will start. No announcement on that yet.
He is inactive with illness.
OK, let's have a roll call.
