Tonight marks the start off the NFL preseason for many teams, which means tons of rookies get to make their official debuts. One of the most highly-regarded rookies playing tonight is Heisman runner-up Manti Te’o of the San Diego Chargers.
Tonight the Chargers take on the Seahawks in San Diego, and some Notre Dame fans are wearing awesome custom shirts supporting Te’o, as well as the former Domer Golden Tate:
The fronts of the Te’o jersey tees support the Fighting Irish (with gold numbers that even Adidas would be proud of), but the backs reflect his new team:
There’s no question though, that the best of the bunch has to be the Te’o/Tate split jersey tee — here it is:
These are definitely the best dressed people at tonight’s game — it’s no contest.

Seahawks rookie running back Christine Michael looked good in Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Chargers. Michael got his share of opportunities in Seattle’s 31-10 win over the San Diego Chargers. He ran six times for 21 yards in the first half. In the second half, he turned it up a notch, carrying 10 times for 66 yards — including a 24-yard run — for a total...
Seahawks rookie running back Christine Michael got plenty of opportunity, carrying the ball 16 times for 89 yards as well as returning kickoffs. Rookie tight end Luke Willson got his fair share of reps playing with the first team offense. Other drafted rookies Ty Powell, Spencer Ware, and Michael Bowie also got significant playing time.
But while all of these players were drafted...
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michaels has been making a lot of noise at training camp, and coach Pete Carroll and his staff wanted to put him to the test. Michael got his share of touches in Seattle’s 31-10 win over the San Diego Chargers.
Seahawks have released wide receiver Early Doucet after he struggled with an
injury in his first practice with the team, according to Darin Gantt of NBC Sports. The team stated that their reason for releasing Doucet so soon after
acquiring him is because he “failed to disclose a physical injury” prior to
signing his contract. It is currently unknown what that injury...
The Glory Hogs
Yada Yada Percy Harvin‘s hurt yada yada. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, where was I?
Ah yes, the Seattle Seahawks wide receivers that will be healthy from week 1 forward and their projected stats lines.
They may not have the flashy big play ability of Harvin for the majority of the season (and potentially longer), but there are no shortage of stars in...
Let There be Depth!
I don’t care that for the most part I was watching second and third string players. I don’t care that this game meant absolutely nothing. It was Seattle Seahawks football, and for the first time in over six months it graced the screen of my dirty, dust-covered television.
The Seahawks kicked off their preseason last night with a week 1 romping...
Fight To The Death
Going into the week one preseason match up between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Diego Chargers, an important position battle is on the line that has gotten very little media play.
What happens if Russell Wilson goes down?
For a team with Super Bowl aspirations, and an offensive attack that can lead to a few hits on the franchise quarterback, the need to have...
A nice showing from Seahawks No. 3 running back, rookie Christine Michael, in the preseason opener - 16 carries for 89 yards.Fantasy Spin:Unless Marshawn Lynch gets hurt or has more legal issues, Michael shouldn't have much fantasy value this season, but keeper league owners should keep an eye on him and he could give backup Robert Turbin a run for his money.
The Seattle Seahawks have beat the San Diego Chargers 31-10 in their first preseason game.
In a game that ultimately means nothing at the end of the season, there was some good things to take away from this game. Philip Rivers finally looked comfortable in an improved offensive line. Unfortunately for the Chargers, there isn’t much depth behind the starting five offensive linemen...
The Seattle Seahawks will visit the San Diego Chargers in each teams first preseason football game of the season.
Ah. Preseason. Where the games do not matter but the roster spots do. If nothing else it will be interesting to see how San Diego plays under first year coach Mike McCoy.
Kickoff for this game is set at 10:00 pm ET.
The spread favors the Seahawks by 2.5 points...

The title of this article may seem ludicrous to some of you, but hang in there and let me explain the eerie similarities between the two clubs. Image: USATSI
