Not gonna lie, getting more and more excited about this season. Already had a solid team, now have a legitimate three-way competition for starting QB. Russell Wilson is starting to excite me. I liked him a lot before the draft, and it's looking more and more like the only bad thing people can find to say about him is the "HT" number next to his name. (But he's got huge hands!) He's a tremendous athlete, he's going to be able to move around to find throwing lanes, he improvises well, and for Pete Carroll to say he's just as much in the starting battle after one minicamp as Tarvaris and Flynn says a lot.
Irvin, by all acounts looked good in minicamp and Carroll was raving, as usual, about his speed, but also said something else that I liked - said he was asking a lot of questions at team meetings - "good questions." Turbin's got people talking, and as much as I would've preferred Kendricks over Wagner, and as much as he reminds me of Aaron Curry, he's fast, he's rangy, he's stout and could very well turn into another good player. I haven't heard much about him from minicamp, but I liked what I saw when I was watching Winston Guy's gamefilm from Kentucky and am excited to see what kinds of defensive packages Pete Carroll is going to come up with. Really, really liking the way our defense is starting to look (And Trufant's back!), and the offense has gotten a shot in the arm, too.
