Admittedly, we’ve missed a number of impactful stories in the past few days. March Madness will do that to you. But since many of you have looked for our take on these issues, we’re here to offer the official Seattle Sportsnet opinion up in the second all-time edition of our Super Megapost.
Because some things are simply too big to be ignored.
Charlie “The Second Coming” Whitehurst
I’m not going to pretend I’m some expert on Charlie Whitehurst. The only thing I really know is that he bears a strong resemblance to Ryan Gosling’s character in The Notebook.
But here’s the rub. Whitehurst is the first major acquisition for the new Seahawks braintrust of general manager John Schneider and president/head coach Pete Carroll. These three guys are now and forever inextricably linked to one another. They are a tripod, in essence. If one leg falls, the entire pod comes crashing down.
Which means that Charlie is under some serious pressure for a guy that, two weeks ago, was a glorified clipboard-holder in San Diego.
