Congratulations to Pro Bowler Russell Okung!

Discuss any and all NFL-related topics and matters of interest here. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13


  • Russell Okung is so much better off playing in a disciplined Philip Rivers offense.

    In his first season with the Chargers, Okung brought a veteran presence to the offensive line. He helped bolster a unit that allowed the fewest sacks in the NFL (18). His two sacks allowed (according to STATS LLC) equaled the best single-season effort of his career in which he played 10 or more games.

    Additionally, Okung aided Melvin Gordon to rush for over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career, the Chargers ended up with the league’s top-ranked passing offense and Philip Rivers had one of his best seasons as a pro.

  • The problem with Okung here was injuries ...from my perspective.....couldnt tie up that money in him when he was only playing half the time

    Didn't he offer to play for $0 guaranteed after he left here? Makes me think he may have been a casualty of Cable more than anything...hard to say.

  • The previous pro bowl Okung attended was during the Tom Cable era in Seattle. Okung left as his own agent. His departure had little to do with Cable.

    In the end, Max Unger, James Carpenter, Breno Giacomini, Paul McQuistan, J.R. Sweezy and Okung all thrived under Cable but were all lost to cap or trade concessions.

    I'm happy for Okung's good fortune with Philip Rivers and company. It all worked out for him.

  • He would have been a very good fit on our 05 line.

    Of course not. Jones is probably the best in history. All I was trying to say is he would have fit in well on that amazing 05 line. 2 of the best five Seahawk lineman in history played that year. Okung is the fourth or fifth best lineman in Seahawk history, he would have fit in really well on than line on one side of the other of center.

  • Sean Locklear was pretty damn good. They wouldn't need Brokung.

  • Really wish we had found a way to keep Okung, but reports were that we may have offered more than the Broncos to keep him and he wanted to walk. I'm happy he is doing so well. Always seemed like a great guy.

  • Yeah, good player, good guy. Just very injury prone, and no way in hell worth what he's getting now.

    Okung was always solid here when he stayed on the field. A non-Cable OLC and he might have had more pro-bowls as well.
