Daft Hawks

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger:  'member all that hubbub about strength & conditioning coach Chris Carlisle?

The recent talk around Seahawks headquarters has been centering on the incredible improvement taking place in the players’ strength and conditioning.

Hawks are lifting 40-50% more, already.  Brandon Mebane's up.  Jamar Adams even broke 3 bills on the bench, not too shabby for a safety.  Red Bryant,too, although at first I laughed when I read the numbers:

Red Bryant, who was putting up 75 pounds per dumbbell in February, lifted 135 pounds per dumbbell on the incline bench press this morning

until I realized that was per dumbbell.  And on the incline.  Still not big numbers for a guy his size, but that doesn't mean squat.  But the thought of a backup safety hovering over the cut being able to bench more than the guy who invented the term "country strong" was still a funny thought.

So yeah we're going to the Super Bowl.
