It's finally time to select the winner of the Adopt-a-Hawk contest for the 2012 Training Camp!!!! Who else is excited?!?!?!!?!!?!11?!?!

Seriously, glad i was able to finally get around to this today. Really bummed that I didn't get to follow through on certain aspects of this competition over the past few weeks (stats and articles updates). It's been a whirlwind in real life as well as hawkville, RW really stole the show on this one. Doesn't mean this is decided quite yet, however. We are still judging this thing top to bottom based on:

1. Improvement and Growth from the start of Training Camp to the finish

-How much better did each player look throughout out each game?

-Were there positive updates from Bing Training camp reports?

-Which players broke out during August?

-Did a player with an outside shot make the roster?

2. Potential on this team going into the Season.

-What do you expect form each player this year?

-Did they increase their role on this team, or allow themselves to get beat out by another player?

-How much is each player going to contribute on gameday, from your point of view?

-Is the player still on the team, or did they fall to the PS or Waiver wire?

3. How much Overall Talent does each Seattle fan's Roster have?

-How many impact players are on each 4 man roster?

-Who has the most talented and gifted group of guys top to bottom?


***Rules of Voting***

-Try to remember to judge each category equally for each Participants team. All 3 should weigh heavily into your decision. Just because someone had the most recognizable talent, doesn't mean they had the best training camp group. Also, choosing the premier breakout from camp shouldn't be the final deciding factor either

-I have decided to divide this into 4 "Sectors" (or divisions) for voting. We will be voting for 1 team (based on the criteria above) from each Sector. The the winners from each of the 4 Sectors will participate in a head to head competition that will also be decided by vote. The poster from that "4 team Playoff" who wins both head to head matchup will be this years winner for the Adopt-a-Hawk Challenge and receive a sig to commemorate their accomplishment


Without Further Ado, here are the Contestants and their teams for this Sector:

Team seahawks22

Sidney Rice

Leroy Hill

Pierre Allen

Allen Bradford


Team Imani

Doug Baldwin

Ricardo Lockette

Greg Scruggs

Jeron Johnson


Team TheDudeAbides

Robert Turbin

Cordarro Law

Ben Obomanu

JR Sweezy


Team Seaducks

Review each team, jog your memory, and CAST YOUR VOTES NOW!!!!.......Anyone can vote

This was a pretty difficult Sector to judge.

I like Seahawks22's team because Sidney Rice came back from injury earlier than expected, has put on 15 pounds of muscle, and looks good. Hill has looked really solid in run defense. His team is held back however, by the early cut of Pierre Allen and Bradford not doing much of anything.

imani unfortunately has his 1st round pick holding him back as Baldwin didn't do anything but appear on the injury report thus far. Lockette went from player with huge hopes for the 2012 season to sitting on the practice squad while Charly Martin is on the 53. Scruggs was one of the best training camp stories of all and gives this team huge points while Jeron Johnson's big offseason to keep him as safety #3 also helps.

Obviously the Dude has a team full of potential. Turbin might be the week 1 starting RB after being a 4th round pick out of Utah State. He was one of the NFL's leading rushers for the preseason and looked better than advertised during preseason games. JR Sweezy might be the best value pick of the draft as he went from a 7th round pick many questioned to the starting RG over our 3rd round pick from a year ago. Cordarro Law looked good but didn't make the team or PS, which hurts, and Obo did almost nothing but his spot on the team was known.

seaducks has Jason Jones who looked good but not great, Unger who was the same as 2011, McDonald who was solid but didn't shine, and Tunei who didn't make the team. Solid team, but not great.

It was tough, but I ultimately went with the Dude. Both imani and he have two very good players in Scruggs/Jeron and Turbin/Sweezy, but the Dude doesn't have any negatives to his team. Baldwin was expected to look much better this offseason so that's a negative for imani's team and a lot of people had high expectations for Lockette, and he's not even on the 53 now. Obo was who we thought he was and Law actually played good and wasn't assured a roster spot in the eyes of fans regardless. Scruggs was great, but he's still a backup and Sweezy was chosen after him and is now a starter. Sweezy went from likely PS candidate to starting RG in the matter of 4 weeks. One of the strongest players for this competition.

I'm assuming we can't vote for our own team, so I went with Imani.

Jeron Johnson couldn't have made a better case for himself in the preseason games and Scruggs has definitely emerged as a fave.
