Seattle Seahawks Notes, Quotes 2009-04-23
--DE Lawrence Jackson knows he can't hit the reset button and start his NFL career anew this season. Besides, the 6-foot-4, 270-pound defensive end doesn't want to. Seattle's first-round draft pick in 2008 understands he did not live up to expectations last season -- his and others -- with his rookie performance, finishing with two sacks in 16 games.

Tasked with learning two positions, playing both defensive end and defensive tackle, and playing most of the season with an injured right foot, a reflective Jackson said after the final day of Seattle's veteran minicamp that he's not making any excuses.

"For me, I'm done with last year," Jackson said. "I watched the film -- I still watch it and I go over it -- but last year was last year. The disappointment I felt is gone. That was year one. I take what happened, good and bad, into preparation for year two and move forward, and that's kind of my plan for things."

--Southern California QB Mark Sanchez said Seattle is one of four teams he has met with heading up to April's draft. The others are Detroit, Jacksonville and San Francisco.

Sanchez said Seattle would be a good fit if the Seahawks selected him with the No. 4 overall pick.

"I've talked to Coach (quarterbacks coach Bill) Lazor and Coach (offensive coordinator Greg) Knapp and Coach Mora," Sanchez told Seattle-area radio station KJR-AM. "They've all been excited about me. They saw me work out at pro day. I visited with them quite a bit, and at the end of this week I'll have gone to Detroit and Seattle, met with St. Louis, Jacksonville and San Francisco.

"I mean you hear everything. I'm all over the map. And I had a great time with coach Knapp and coach Lazor. So I feel comfortable with their system, and it's very similar to what we ran at SC so it would be a seamless transition. I think it would be great."

--For the first time since 1983, the Seahawks will not have a nationally televised game. They can blame a 4-12 season for that. Still, Mora had to be content when the 2009 schedule was recently released, with the Seahawks slated to play four of their first six games at home.

However, the Seahawks do have six 10 a.m. starts on the road -- tied for most in the league -- and face a tough stretch late in the season when they travel to Arizona, Minnesota and St. Louis in weeks 10 through 12.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "You can probably be dominant in one or the other and maybe get to the playoffs. But in order to win it all you've got to be balanced. You've got to be able to throw the ball efficiently in order to score points. And you've got to be able to run the ball to win games at the end of the game." -- Seattle offensive coordinator Greg Knapp on the need for a balanced offense to win games in the NFL.
