Seahawks Gameday Preview

Man I have waited far too long to write these words. It's Seahawks gameday!!!

Sure it's just a preseason game, but it still means that the Hawks are back, and football season is here. Oh yeah!

Tonight the Hawks open their preseason at San Diego with a game against the Chargers

I'll be watching it and report on my thoughts after the game. And yes Brandon, I'll be wearing my rave green jersey. The one you hate so much. The one pictured beside this article. Hehe. But the best part about that jersey is that with both the Sounders FC and the Hawks playing, having a neon green jersey allows me to support both teams. Epic.

Game time is 7 PM. So an hour before the Sounders FC get going. The game will be shown on KING 5 as well as 710 KIRO AM.

According to, new rookie Aaron Curry will be playing a lot during the game. Here's the article.

When linebacker Aaron Curry checked into training camp last Saturday, the Seahawks’ first-round draft choice had three priority items on his do-to list:

One: Show the coaches enough in practice during the week that he would be able to play in the preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers.

Two: Play as much as possible, despite missing the first eight days of camp while his six-year contract was being finalized and the tradition where starters typically play only a couple of series in the opener.

Three: Make the kinds of plays in his NFL debut worthy of the fourth pick overall in the NFL draft.

Check, check, and check back.

Curry will start, and play a lot, against the Chargers on Saturday night.

“You’re going to see him do a lot of different things, and you’ll see him play into the third quarter and through the third quarter,” coach Jim Mora said.

Mora’s checklist for Curry includes: playing “a significant amount” at strong-side linebacker in the base defense; playing as one of two linebackers in the nickel defense; and even rushing the pass as the right end in the nickel.
