Another couple of HC positions have been filled. The leftovers are substantial. Our Seattle Seahawks will name a coach soon-ish, but are taking their time. In other news, Devon Witherspoon continues to garner off-season praise and accolades, being named recently as one of the finalist for Rookie Defensive Player of the Year. Much deserved recognition for this young man. A bright star, indeed, amongst several young stars that may just need a scheme adjustment, and some new blood in the building to get them going in the proper direction. Big news looms. Thanks for being here.
