Apparently there wasn’t a whole lot of excitement to report from the Seattle Seahawks’ scrimmage at Lumen Field, but that’s fine! We want the excitement in the games that count, and we’re only a month away from regular season football kicking off.
However, there is one highlight that I’m sure everyone will cherish even in a mock game and would love to see in an actual game of consequence.
In front of over 15,000 fans on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, defensive tackle Poona Ford showed off his “all about the ball” skills when a toss play from Geno Smith to running back Josh Johnson was botched. Johnson tried to pick up the ball but got knocked off his feet by Aldon Smith, clearing the way for Ford to scoop and score.

Hey, the Seahawks went the whole of 2020 without a defensive touchdown for the first time in franchise history, it’s good to see it even if it’s just a scrimmage! Ford has quickly become one of Seattle’s more important defensive figures, anchoring the run-stuffing unit while vastly improving his pass rushing skills last year.
The starters (blue team offense) beat the backups (action green for 2nd team offense) by a score of 22-3, proving that the only team that can stop the Action Green Seahawks are the Seahawks themselves.
