“Blogging” (aka Tweeting) during training camp is not allowed by the players. But don’t worry, we will continue with updates throughout the morning with everything from fan reaction to things overheard on the field.
Thank you Lord for blessing me with a new day!!

From fantastic Seahawks.com writer Clare Farnsworth: What do the Seahawks have to prove? Everything. http://www.seahawks.com/news/articles/article-1/Seahawks-open-training-camp-with-a-lot-to-prove/4228a763-c736-4687-ae07-3529b0329cf1
Doug Farrar of SI.com thinks Richard Sherman is the best corner in the game. Don’t you?
From SI.Com: In the postseason, Sherman was even more impressive, and this was really the tiebreaker. It’s unfortunate that Peterson’s Cardinals didn’t get to see what they could do in the playoffs with their 10-6 record, but Sherman was absolutely ridiculous in the Seahawks’ final romp to the Super Bowl — he was targeted just seven times on 117 passing snaps, allowing just two receptions for 10 yards. And when Peyton Manning, of all people, started overthrowing deep passes to avoid Sherman late in the Super Bowl as the Broncos fell further and further behind, that said all that needed to be said. Richard Sherman is just as good as he says he is.
Today marks the first of 12 training camp practices at the VMAC in Renton.
