Six games into the NFL season Seahawks fans have come to learn two primary characteristics about the 2017 version of the team.
It’s not that hard to build the argument that the Hawks could enter the December 3rd nationally televised night game at the Clink versus the Eagles with a pretty gaudy record.
The time between kickoff of the Washington State/Cal game on Friday night and the conclusion of the Washington/Arizona State game on Saturday night was, without question, the worst just over a day in the combined history of the Evergreen State’s two Division One college football programs.
Sherman has become such a presence with the Hawks and in the NFL that it’s sometimes difficult to remember that he wasn’t drafted until the fifth round in 2011 and at the time the Hawks were probably reaching a bit because they were taking a guy who had been recruited to Stanford as a wide receiver.
Watching the Seahawks slog and slug their way to a win in Los Angeles last week I was struck by two thoughts.
Last week’s column dealt with the inconsistencies and massive personnel changes in the offensive line. By comparison the running back position has been a non-stop revolving door the past two-plus seasons after two-plus decades of stability.

“My love of sports started early and has been a constant companion through my life. The longer I’ve lived the more I realized that one of the things I love the most is the unique way in which sports can bring large, diverse groups of people together for a short period of time to share a commonality.”
In a position group that relies on consistency and stability, Seattle has sent 21 different men out to start a game on the offensive line since their win over the Broncos in Super Bowl 48.
So, where do we go from here?
