Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

Hawks continue decent offseason

Look, I'm complaining as much as anyone about the Seahawks inability to sign a playmaker on defense. However, we have to be excited about how many of the 16 free agents we have resigned, with Robbie Tobeck and Alex Bannister signing yesterday. Tobeck has widely been recognized as one of our leaders, and if there's anything we need, it's solid veteran leadership. Bannister is a bust as a wide receiver (thanks a bunch for losing the Green Bay game for us) but he was a Pro Bowl caliber special teams player, and our special teams play was anything but while he was injured.
At this point we have only lost two players we cared about, Chike Okeafor and Ken Lucas, and we have replaced both with at least adequate replacements. So even without the big splash, the Hawks offseason has to be looked at as a success.
