SEATTLE — Being a Seahawks fan in Switzerland can’t be easy with the 5,243 mile distance. Fortunately, Sidney Rice was able to make two fans feel a little closer to Seattle on his recent trip to Zurich.
Rice flew to Switzerland last week for a treatment similar to Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) on his knee. Knowing Rice was in town, Seahawks fan and Zurich resident Moritz Luescher tweeted Rice a barbecue invite and a Madden game challenge.

Rice responded to the tweet by sending Luescher a private Twitter message asking for the home address.

Rice“One of the coolest things I’ve done,” Rice explained. “After my treatment I actually showed up to this house and played a game of Madden with him and his brother. They were pretty stoked.”

The game of Madden came down to the final seconds, but Moritz Luescher and brother, Simon Luscher, took the win.

“They beat me on a field goal the very last second, 26-23,” Rice said.

Rice was back Sunday at Seahawks training camp. Rice said, the treatment will take some time to see a significant change, but is sure it is headed in the right direction.

Gotta respect Rice for something like this. I hope he earns his contract this season, cuz he's a great guy to have around on and off the field.

Seahawks guard James Carpenter limps off field, misses practice

http://blog.seattlepi.com/football/2013/08/06/seahawks-guard-james-carpenter-limps-off-field-misses-practice/

Quote:
Seahawks guard James Carpenter did not practice with the team Tuesday morning after limping off the field during Monday’s practice.

Seattle’s first-round pick out of Alabama in 2011, Carpenter has been limited to 16 games over his first two seasons due to two major knee injuries. The Seahawks originally slotted him in at right tackle before moving him inside to guard last season. Despite his injury history, coaches hoped Carpenter could be a major contributor on the line this season, and he’s spent much of training camp as the No. 2 left guard behind Paul McQuistan.

No further details are available at this point, but if Carpenter misses more time it’s yet another setback for a once-promising prospect.

I'm really excited about Walter Thurmond this year.


And James Carpenter is headed toward Marcus Tubbs territory. High potential guy that just can't stay healthy.

I don't think it's anything major based on what i've heard so far, I just think it's getting more attention givev his history. Doubt he's anymore banged up than Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett or Michael Robinson just were.

If it is indeed serious though, he needs to go. We can't rely on a player who can't rely on their own body, especially in the Oline. Outside of QB, the Oline has a way of being the uprise or the downfall of a team rather quickly. We need to get that together because Okung has a History too. We can't just have a glass left side.

It would be huge. Can get his feet back under him before we go up against the 49ers. Going to need everybody to beat them, even at home.

#Seahawks G James Carpenter not at practice Tuesday, but take a deep breath, because it's believed to be a sore foot, not a knee injury.

Former Seahawks Safety, Deon Grant announces retirement



http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/08/07/deon-grant-announces-retirement/

Quote:
For a guy whose career nearly ended before it began, Deon Grant had a long run in the NFL.

The veteran safety announced his retirement Wednesday, per multiple reports.

Grant played 11 years with the Panthers, Jaguars, Seahawks and Giants. But a broken hip his rookie season nearly ended that run. The former second-round pick came back from that and played 176 consecutive games. He was out of the league last season, and decided to call it a career.

Seahawks' Kearse has taken his game to another level



http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20130807/SPORTS/708079952/1004/sports

Quote:
RENTON -- Percy Harvin has been the Seahawks' most talked about receiver in training camp. Golden Tate, as has been the case in years past, has been the most spectacular. And Sidney Rice, he of the quick jaunt to Switzerland for treatment on his knee, has been the most-traveled.

But quietly, while the outside world frets over Harvin's hip and Rice's knee, Jermaine Kearse, of all people, has arguably been the most consistent performer in his position group through the first two weeks of camp. Kearse, who went undrafted out of Washington last year, signed with the Seahawks and landed on Seattle's practice squad before a midseason promotion, isn't suddenly making people forget about Harvin, Rice, Tate and Doug Baldwin, but he is certainly making everyone feel better about the depth behind them.

"He's in better shape than he has been, he's looked good in practice, making a lot of plays," receivers coach Kippy Brown said. "He shows up."

Kearse, a Tacoma native, showed potential last season, but he has clearly taken his game to another level with a strong offseason and the confidence that comes with getting a shot in the NFL. During the offseason, Russell Wilson invited his receivers and tight ends to a workout session in Hermosa Beach, Calif. Kearse was one of the attendees, and he impressed Wilson there and has continued to do so in training camp.

"We went down to California together and Jermaine was one of those guys that stood out," Wilson said. "He looked unbelievable down there and he's looked unbelievable since we have been training here in Seattle. He's just got great hands, he's got great instincts. He's got great hips in terms of moving and adjusting to the football. He's got a lot of ability. I'm really excited to see where he goes this year. He can do it all."

Kearse has shown a knack for making big plays going back to his days at Lakes High School and the UW, but the one thing that always seemed to hold him back was the occasional case of the drops. Brown said he's seen less of that from Kearse this year, and Kearse hopes more experience and practice time, as well as offseason Lasik surgery, will help him continue to catch the ball more consistently in big moments, not just practice.

"Things are a lot clearer and I don't have to worry about contact lenses moving around or getting blurry," Kearse said of his Lasik surgery. "So it definitely helps."

In addition to being able to see better, Kearse says the biggest change is simply being more confident and comfortable in the offense.

"Being comfortable with the offense enables me to play faster, so that's a big thing," he said.

Knowing the offense allows Kearse to play all three receiver positions, a big plus for any receiver battling for a roster spot and playing time.

"The more you can do the better, so I've learned the slot and the outside," he said. "Wherever they need me to go, I'm able to do it."

Kearse's impressive camp, his versatility and Harvin's injury, have helped propel him from roster hopeful to near lock to make the 53-man roster. Yet the reality is that unless more injuries happen, he'll spend more time helping do the dirty work on special teams than he will catching passes from Wilson. Kearse earned his promotion to the 53-man roster last year not just because he was improving as a receiver and the Seahawks had a need, but also because Pete Carroll saw a player who could help on special teams, which is a big deal for a coach who puts a lot of emphasis on the "other" part of the game.

"We like him across the board," Carroll said. "One of the great statements for him is that he's one of our core special teams guys, and (special teams coach Brian) Schneider has raved about his work there. That tells you a lot about his first year. He's on our kickoff team, and he's one of the starters on the kickoff team as a wide receiver. He's a tremendous asset.

"Now beyond that, he's versatile, he's very quick, his catching range is excellent. He can play all three spots, so he's a vital part of what we're doing, and it's really all him. He's busted his tail, and really come through. He's a nice guy on our team."
