Hawks Cast Forum
The main area for talking about Seahawks news, insights, opinions and general knowledge to share
People dont talk about Special Teams as much as they should and the Thorpe signing kind of proves it. Back in the day..we used to wonder what Thorpe would develop into and going in to Training Camp we would hope he took a big leap forward and was going to be a starter or what not.
Instead he has made a 6 , going on 7 year career for what he does on 4th downs and after scores. There is a lesson there. If youre a talented but not special football player heading into college.. dont play running back. Try to be a cornerback, failing that a linebacker, failing THAT a safety.. and make sure you can do a lot of things. If you can sorta cover man, and sorta cover in zone, and you tackle and block and get off outside blocks..you are gonna make a lot of rosters.

The Grid Iron
The Forum to talk about all kinds of Football; Pee Wee, High School, College, and NFL Football.
Never was a big fan. Probably because he seems the type I don’t get along well with in real life. And man I think people don’t consider his injuries enough when evaluating him. But no doubting how much he changed the game and titled the table for the Patriots. And his coach sure knew how to use him.
Oh.. and Jeremy Macklin retired today too.
Thanks for the highlight reels guys. Except the ones against the Seahawks. And Gronk has some painful ones.
Gonna hurt most in Fantasy football because even when Gronk would miss 4-8 games a year someone would take him in the first round. Will miss that.

So Barr has released a 4-summary saying there was no collision or Trump attempts to interfere. He also states that the investigation was warranted and not excessive.
This means that Trump and his allies will treat this like a victory because they weren't obviously engaging in corrupt acts... I personally believe they were just stupid and didnt realize they were being taken for fools.
The Water Cooler
Chit chat with the community and discuss work, life, family, hobbies, food, and your place in the Cast.
Im a huge Karate Kid fan. As in, wrote papers as an undergrad seeking out the real wisdom behind the cheese of Miyagi's lines and actions. I dont like Karate Kid 3...and refuse to watch the Karate Kid with the Hillary Swank. But the first 2 were my really important to me as a kid.
Last year obviously they made this show Cobra Kai on youtube.. and I meant to watch it but last year was a tough year workwise and I missed it for a while then just forgot it.
Stumbled on the commerical for Season 2 a week and a half ago.. and immediately sought out and watched Season 1.
Have you watched this? Ok..so..there is some cringe worthy stuff in there and the production value is ...subpar and uneven.
BUT.. they have some talented writers, some cool ideas and most of the time they hit the balance right between nostalgia, poetic parallelism, and originality. You never get comfortable with a label, you never forget what got them to this point.. and being a tv show not a movie, man do you get to know the characters better. So much better by episode 9 I just wanted desperately to get Johnny and Daniel in a room with a six pack of diet pepsi and just work all this out. I know I could!
Some episodes are simply fantastic.. I think I physically missed Mr. Miyagi during the episode that was dedicated to Pat Morita.. and the episode where Daniel and Johnny end up spending a day together..Ive waited for years to see what something like that would look like. And hence this show.
Im a bit afraid of season 2 because I dont think its a great idea to bring in Kove. He just looks so "never let go so I spent too much on plastic surgery".. but Im very interested in where this goes.
