An era has ended.


This is a sad day, my friends.

One of the cornerstones of our franchise, a man who was here through feast and through famine, who captured our hearts and our souls, is gone forever, riding off into the sunset on a white horse.

I know I will never forget where I was* when I learned that the Seahawks had cut Darren Fells.

But do not be sad, gentle Twelves, for while he may be gone from this plane, his memory lives on in our hearts. I like to think there's a Darren Fells in all of us. His [number not assigned] jersey will share a proud space on my wall next to my signed neon green Lofa Tatupu jersey* so that that I may pass his legend on to on to my children, once they get around to actually existing. Lazy theoretical kids. You didn't get this kind of thing in my day.

I know that we can never truly replace such a Seattle legend, but we'll all have to manage the best we can.

*I was on the toilet surfing the interwebs, in case anyone was wondering.

**He wrote "Best wishes [my real name]." Oh my god! Lofa Tatupu knows who I am!
