August 18 Practice

Some observation from the August 18th practice at Husky Stadium

 

I spent most of the practice watching the defensive lineman and the cornerbacks through binoculars, so I likely missed much of what happened elsewhere on the field.  

 

Josh Wilson practiced with the first team defense, Kelly Jennings with the second unit.  Jennings defensed two passes.  Generally it looked like most of the second team WRs had a tough time gaining separation from Jennings, who appeared to be working hard to impress.   

 

First team defensive line practiced as Redding-Cole-Mebane-Kerney.  But in the 11-on-11 passing drill that closed the practice, the first team defense rush line was Tapp-Redding-Mebane-Kerney.  That line looked like it could get after the QB.

 

Brandon Mebane looks lighter and quicker than last year.  He practiced with energy and reminded me of the spinning Tazmanian Devil from those old Bugs Bunny cartoons.  When the D lineman were practicing stunts - with the DE crossing over the DT - Nick Reed lined up next to Mebane to rush side-by-side and they looked like two Tazmanian Devils spinning into the backfield.  

 

Red Bryant - as tall as our tallest DEs but as stout as a DT - looks like the closest thing to Marcus Tubbs I've seen in Seahawks blue since Tubbs.

 

With Julius Jones and T. J. Duckett getting a rest, Justin Forsett and Devin Moore shared all the reps at RB.  Forsett looked sharp during a couple of impressive runs and receptions.  Moore looked overwhelmed trying to block pass rushers in the pass protection drill.
