    Bennett? When he came here, people were like "who?". Same with Avril.

    Just because you haven't heard them bark, or they don't bark loudly enough for you, don't assume we don't have dawgs.

    They proved it on the field, THEN they barked. Give this group a chance to prove themselves. Otherwise it's bark without bite, and nobody's afraid of that.

    Avril and Bennett were actually known by anyone who followed the NFL actively. Avril had 11, and 9.5 sacks the two years before he came here. The year we got Bennett he was coming off of a 9 sack season. These weren't exactly nobodies, people were especially aware of Bennett because he was originally a Seahawk. We let him go after an explosive preseason to keep TWO kickers.


    Again Avril was looked at as someone who benefited from Suh, and Bennett was a system guy presumably.

    The smaller-statured Lockett is a menace against press coverage. He finished the 2017 campaign with a WR rating of 128.8 versus press coverage, catching 75.0 percent of his targets for 125 yards and one touchdown, while averaging a very healthy 15.6 yards per reception.

    I remember differently. Bennett and Avril were rated the #1 and #2 free agent DEs and both were in the top 10 available free agents on nearly every list that offseason. I was extremely surprised when the DE market tanked and the Seahawks were able to acquire both at ridiculously low cost.

    There is no doubt if healthy Lockett is a beast. I just hope Wr #3 is over 6 foot since Lockett and Doug are under. Be nice to have some size.

Ask Harden how Soft Steve Largent was, as everyone who lined up against Reggie White on the football field, or Alex Karras. All were great people off the field or as team mates.


    Great point. Merlin Olsen comes to mind.
