Kicker Competition Gets Interesting

by: Michael Steffes

Brandon Coutu has a hurt groin. He did not suit up for practice today. Some you may remember that Olindo Mare had a hurt groin last season, and it has been well documented how that turned out. Lets hope this isn't too severe. It will give Mr. Mare a chance to further stake his claim on the Seahawks kicker spot on Monday.

As it seems these days, when one goes, another returns. In this case it was Larry Tripplett, who practiced and then did some conditioning drills. Too little, too late Larry, but he may be the first guy called if there is an injury on this team. Thanks to Danny O'Neil for his practice report. He seems willing to give the fans an update before banging out his nightly stories, which is much appreciated by Hawk nation. ~END~
