When Deon Grant sat down to consider his options and figure out where he wanted to play in 2007, he narrowed down his options with a quickness.
"One reason I considered coming to Seattle is the fact that they've been to the playoffs for four years straight," Grant told the Florida Times-Union Thursday. "They're definitely there."Done deal sweety, bring on the cigar because the Seahawk secondary just gave birth to it's new age, and it's golden child is in the house.
I won't bore you with stats other than the big ones, namely an average of just about 65 tackles a year since he got into his first game in '01.
You want more reason to get excited about the landing? How does 18 interceptions float your boat? If you asked him how he did that, he might just come back with a line from one of his favorite Adam Sandler movies:
"You underestimate my sneakiness."
Grant also boasts 4 1/2 sacks to his credit, and he's only 27 years old.
"They're missing a few pieces, but I think with guys like Patrick [Kerney] and myself, we'll be able to make some things happen on that defense," Grant said to the Times-Union. "You bring in guys with playoff experience and Super Bowl experience with a coach that already has Super Bowl experience, we really feel like we can make it happen here in Seattle."
I think it's safe to say he's not alone on that sentiment.
Unfortunately with progress comes change, and the people of Seahawk Nation will likely be saying good-bye to local favorite Ken Hamlin as a result. Also with the addition of Brian Russel, even Michael Boulware will likely have to run his beak into the ground to prove he still belongs.
So now, right out of the Blue, you have sheer evil brewing in coffee town. All of a sudden opposing quarterbacks will not only toss and turn at the thought of Julian Peterson and Lofa, but also will have to account for Patrick Kerney and Mr. Sneaky as well.
To sum up that scenario, I give 'em each the same four words ...
Sucks to be you.
