It's been a pretty exciting week actually and there were some good discussions had here at Field Gulls. In case you're not addicted to the internet like I am and haven't seen what's going on here lately, now is your chance to catch up.
The Replay Booth: Lofa Tatupu - He's Still Got It Folks - Field Gulls: For what it's worth, Lofa Tatupu still finds ways to impress the hell out of me. I was reminded of one of those instances as I was re-watching the Divisional Playoff game against the Bears last night. In a third and four situation, he came up with a big sack to end a drive in a game that was still very much in hand for the Hawks as they trailed 7-0.
The 4-3 Under Defense, Part I: An Introduction - Field Gulls: I delve into a series of posts that examines the Seahawks unique 4-3 Under with Elephant defensive philosophy and schemes. Part one is an introduction to the alignments and terminology.

Key Seahawks Statistic of the Week: Power Rushing - Field Gulls: While I think most people sort of have an idea how bad our rushing attack was, I'm not sure people really KNOW.. just how bad it was. To help with this, I've consulted NFL.com's statistical page and picked out one key metric that I will undoubtedly harp on in the coming weeks and months.
Around the Internets: Matt Hasselbeck and Mike Williams On Player Organized Workouts, Via Doug Farrar - Field Gulls: Great couple of videos taken by Yahoo!

More on North Carolina WR Dwight Jones - Field Gulls: UNC's Dwight Jones has got the size at 6'4 220 that makes you drool, and because he's got high end speed to make him an effective deep threat, you have to like him as a potential Seahawk.

Pete Carroll Kicking Tires for 2011 - WR Dwayne Jarrett - Field Gulls: Dwayne Jarrett came in for a tryout in late November when the Hawks were experiencing injuries at receiver (now-retired Bobby Engram was invited too). He wasn't signed at that time, but I still find myself wondering if Pete told him to get his crap together, get in shape, lift hard, and be ready for next year's camp.
