Not terribly surprisingly, the Seahawks' new receiver Deion Branch will most likely sit for this Sunday's home opener against the Cardinals.
Every indication is that he'll start the next week against the New York Giants, which would be a good team for Seattle to uncork the ol' "shock and awe."
Update [2006-9-13 23:7:53 by Shrug]: Or not. Holmgren said on his radio show Wednesday that he has not made a final decision.
Update [2006-9-16 19:19:54 by Shrug]: Sando reports Branch will not be activated until Sep. 24 against the Giants. We really, really mean it. Really. Mean it, we do.
