When the Seahawks open training camp today, there won’t be a three-way quarterback competition to dominate headlines for a month. And team’s depth at seemingly every position means we’re not likely to see another Terrell Owens-esque signing that creates a sudden mid-camp upsurge in buzz.
But the next six weeks leading up to Seattle’s season opener will be anything but boring.
When the Seahawks begin their fourth training camp under coach Pete Carroll, they’ll be preparing for a season of extremely high expectations and doing so under a spotlight that’s brighter than anything they’ve known – why yes, that is Richard Sherman on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated.
And while we won’t fully know just how well the Seahawks handle all of that until winter, they can do plenty, starting this week, to prepare for one of the most anticipated seasons in Seattle sports history.
