  • I see Mike Solari is flanked on either side by his two prized young rookies ..... Skyler Phillips and Jamarco Jones.

    Good looking group of 15 which is two more than last year at this time IIRC.

    EDIT: Woops ...... Make that 16 which is three more than last year.

  • Is that a new line formation they are toying with? Someone should tell them they can only line up 5!
    Go Hawks!

    A measurement that we never see is inseam. Comparing the "photo apparent" knee height of #72 to #73 suggests one is an interior lineman and the other belongs outside. A high waist lineman needs to become exceptionally good and consistent at sinking their hips to play on the inside. Where as the conventional thinking on the outside holds that, the more leg the better for pass blocking kick slides.

    Marcus Henry, Center from Boise State. The roster lists him at 6' 2" and 303 lbs.

    Standing beside Henry is Joey Hunt, #53, who is listed at 6' 2" and 299... essentially the same size.

    An undersized inside overachiever with lots of grit to help launch the process. IIRC, was one of 3 tryout linemen signed.

    It is never too early for the coaching staff to begin to look at quickness, pad level and balance.

    Isaiah Battle, who was once listed at 290 lbs, looks to be a legitimate 310 lbs now. K.C. Chiefs might very well get that conditional draft pick from Seattle. Always encouraging to see a trade on schedule to become a win / win / win.

    This! I'm hoping Roos will be legitimately involved in the guard competition.

    This group is more exciting than any I can remember in years. There seems to be a lot of promise here. I think this is the year that this team has a top 19 O-line.

    The man has a Viking beard and a smile while he's doing drills.
    What exactly makes him "look the part" more than the others?

    Unless of course it's doing weighted box jumps to improve explosive power.

  • What I see is Solari is starting from ground zero and starting with basics, fundamentals and technique. Teaching the right way and trying to get them to unlearn the ummmm other way. He is going to be the hardest worked coach on the team thru OTA's and training camp. Unlearning is harder to do then learn.

    Also true. The picture I remember seeing was the linemen doing there on field stuff and Cable was having them jump and not box jump kind of jump.

  • This season, our rebuild, our resurgence, Pete career with the Hawks, heck Pete’s legacy is in solaris’ hands. A single point of failure.

    Little doubt that Pete lost part of the locker room since the fatal interception. This season is the much needed reset to cleanse the stench, with full support from Paul and homers like Toffee. As far as reset goes, Pete has done the least when it comes to OL, only adding Fluker; hence the beating we having been taking from so call experts.

    I suspect the lack of personnel changes on OL has a strong input from Solaris. He must saw something that other experts couldn’t and Pete trusted him.

    As a 12, I am praying Solaris’ correct.

  • I'm hoping that under Solari's tutelage that the offensive lineman can actually perform the primary responsibilities of their position. Unlearn the things like "diving at one's knees" that Cable attempted to teach them. That picture from the Packer game last year says it best how the OL functioned under Cable. Orange cones would have been more effective at blocking.

    I should note my error ........ in that given that he was released twice, that presumably negated the conditional draft pick.

    Battle was drafted, as a development project, by St. Louis in the 2015 supplemental draft, and spent all but seven weeks of his two years with the St. Louis and Los Angeles Rams on the practice squad.
    After two seasons with the Rams, he signed with Kansas City after the 2016 season. The Chiefs obviously didn’t have a home for him, so they packed him off to Seattle for a conditional draft pick. He was never active for the Hawks, and when Duane Brown was added at the trade deadline in late October, Battle was waived from the 53 man roster to make room. He was unemployed for only a matter of days, however, as Seattle signed him to the practice squad the next week. In 2017 Battle twice was waived by the Seahawks and spent a weekend unemployed. Seattle signed him to a futures contract January 3rd of this year. This will be his 4th year so as a development project he is very due to put it all together. He needs snaps.

    Given that the front office has been persistent in it's interest in him, a bigger stronger faster Isaiah Battle presents an interesting student for Mike Solari.

    He was betrayed by one of his best, and most trusted friends, Cable. He didn't know why he had to run drills jumping up and down, but he didn't question it. Cables word was law, and he would bring young Roos into the promised land. Alas, Cable proved to be a fraud, once Tom was found out he swiftly delivered a punch to the head that left Roos, dead.

    At the gates of Valhalla he was greeted by Odin, a rare occurrence. Odin looked the young man up and down, then decided to lead him to the great halls to have a drink with him. After spending the night drinking mead, Odin decided 'tis was not this majestic warriors time to spend his days drinking in Valhalla, and that he had much work to do yet.

    Odin took the spirit of young Roos, and zapped him back into his now still body. Roos rose from what was meant to be his mortal bodies eternal slumber. Cable, the wandering gypsy had now gone to another land to sell his scams, and snake oil. Roos, under the great lord Solari has lived to fight another day in the north. He has dined with the great Odin, and was given another purpose and lease on life. One that the NFL would soon come to fear.
