What the hell happened? The teachers in my kids school district are striking. People at work are causing so many fire drills that I have started wearing asbestos boxers and my favorite sports team got so pummeled on opening day that I felt the need to take a breather.

Now I come back to find we released Jordan Kent, Justin Forsett, and Ryan Plackemeier and that Rob Sims is out for the season with a knee injury. AAAnnd the best player to add at WR is some guy named Billy McMullen?

Can we start over? Hi, my name is Hawkblogger. I like long walks on the beach and obsessing over minute details involving the Seattle Seahawks. Who are you, and what have you done with my team?

Quick hitters:

– Rob Sims: See ya. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. I’m not sure we can do worse. Better hope Mansfield Wrotto is practicing REAL hard because Pork Chop never lasts more than a game or two before getting injured.

– Jordan Kent: Huh? What? Why? The guy that showed the most during the preseason that plays Nate Burleson’s position got released? Holmgren was always cautious about positive feedback and Kent. Maybe there are things in practice we don’t see. We really are going to keep Coutu over this guy?

– Plack: Please let the door hit you on the way out, punk. You suck.

– Forsett: We knew it was happening. I think we’re safe with him. Not worth more insight.
