I love finding the voice of the people. When I ran this poll on current favorite Seahawk, I would have expected it to fall something like:
4) Other ("other" always does well in polls, he must rock)
As of 9AM Wednesday morning, with 64 votes in, Golden Boy John Carlson is the clear leader with 32% of the vote. Bald Boy Hasselbeck is a distant second at 21%.
Is it his new car smell? People always like the new guy that bursts onto the scene. Although, I'd think Housh would get a lot of those votes. The novelty of a true Pro Bowl-quality tight end in a franchise that has never had one? Just the fact that he is not Jerramy Stevens?
I like Carlson's no-nonsense, humble approach to his work and his dependability. I still am a Hasselbeck guy, although Burleson is in the ballpark. It's hard to go against the best QB in franchise history, a good family guy, and a great interview. Making me smile is a requirement for all my favorite players.
