Every weekday at 5:30am, we'll start your "Sports Day"
Not a whole lot of offense vs. defense today as a lot of individual unit work was done for most of practice. The two sides did get together for about the last 40 minutes and there were some notable plays/performances.
Good to see Sidney Rice running routes and making plays apparently without discomfort. He caught a TD pass over the middle from Russell Wilson and did have his knee iced toward the end of practice but did not appear to re-aggravate anything.
You won't hear me talk much about an incomplete pass being a highlight of practice but Russell Wilson threaded a perfect back shoulder throw on the sidelines to Golden Tate who made and incredible catch with Kam all over him but he was ruled out of bounds but great throw, great catch, great coverage.
Russell also used his legs as he scampered to the left and saw the seas part and he took off downfield toward Lake Washington. Had the whistle not blown to stop the play early, he would have gotten wet.
The play that got the biggest reaction from the crowd today was a go route down the right sidelines by Jermaine Kearse against Richard Sherman. T-Jack decided to try to pick on #25 which is usually a terrible idea. The ball was a bit under thrown, just enough for Sherm and Kearse to tangle up, Sherm falls down and Kearse comes up with the ball and races to the end zone. As you would expect, Sherm got up and dismissively waved to T-Jack as if to say "fluke". It got some laughs from the crowd.
Overall, I give the nod to the offense today.
Rice getting a little ice after a very good looking day for him.
