NOW BACK TO TALKING FOOTBALL

Posted August 03, 2013

SEABASS has been inked for the next five years! Today he's 35 and we'll have him until he's 40 or circumstances dictate otherwise. This works for me! What's funny is how the article that reported this doesn't even MENTION the other Kicker Eddy Carmona in relation to this re-signing. Can you say "camp leg"? LOL!

I wish like hell that we'd have been able to keep Shane Lechler too, but he seemed bent on playing for his hometown before he retired. Given what he's given the team and the fact that it may be a couple years before we're a good team again, he deserves a chance to play for a contender before he hangs it up. As someone who'll always be a Lechler fan, I can't say I begrudge him that. 

On the other hand we have a promising situation at Punter nonetheless. Between vet (Philly guy) Chris Kluwe and Marquette King (I keep accidentally typing MARQUEZ); whomever we keep will be truly the better option and not just who we got stuck with.

When you add in Josh Cribbs at KR and Bobby April at coach, I have to say I don't remember EVER being this juiced about Special Teams before. Considering the grind-it-out style we'll be employing on both sides of the ball, ST will have to make a visible difference in games if we're to have a chance at winning. In fact I'll right now go so far as to say that for the next couple years, when we claim a 'W', ST will usually have their fingerprints on it.
