Was reading Dr. Lano's column from the Examiner link CRZ posted, and it appears as if Mike Tice is trying to pull some old Seahawks together in Minnesota. He tried to hire the man, the myth, the legend, and my personal hero Jim Zorn for his offensive coordinator, but he very smartly stayed put in Seattle.
Now he's tapping Rusty Tillman (late head coach of the XFL's Hitmen) to be his special teams coach. Rusty was probably the best special teams coach the Hawks ever had, and I wish him luck in MN (just not against the Hawks since they're in the same conference next year!), and am glad Zorn is staying put.
Who's next. Chuck Knox? Ken Patera?? Tom Flores??? Dennis Erickson???? Former Seahawks coaches unite!
I hope he brings back the BOZ! Brian Bosworth 4-ever baby!
If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.
Wow. Has anyone ever gone from a 7-year, $47-million contract signing to being traded for a 6th-round pick and a player to be named later in ONE YEAR? In any sport? It even took the Mariners TWO years to trade Jeff Cirillo.
