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 seek Alexander replacement?

I thought this was a fairly interesting article by ESPN's Len Pasquarelli, which insinuates that Seattle has reopened discussions with Buffalo about running back Travis Henry. Buffalo has been requesting a third-round pick for their back, which seems like a small price for a tough 1000 yard rusher.

I don't know if Henry is better at what we're looking for (short yardage, pass blocking) but if he is I would recommend pulling the trigger and then making Shaun a free agent.

When it comes to Shaun Alexander and his "principles", note that we cannot sign him to a long-term deal until after he signs the franchise tender. Yes, it's unfair to him, but it's also the rules.
