Seattle Seahawks Notes, Quotes 2008-08-28
--Wide receiver Nate Burleson started working at slot receiver last week in order to allow Courtney Taylor and Jordan Kent to work as outside receivers in a three-receiver set. "We're hoping that Deion (Branch) can get back, but you just never know the timing so they're moving me around," Burleson said. "We've opened up the offense and freed up the younger guys outside. It just gives us more of an option from game to game."


--The Seahawks have begun using a short-yardage backfield of Owen Schmitt as fullback and Leonard Weaver, another fullback, as tailback. It has taken away some responsibility from T.J. Duckett. "I love it," Leonard Weaver said. "Love it."

--Because they played the Monday Night Football Game and finish up the preseason Friday night at home, the Seahawks had only one day of practice between games.

--There was such a stiff breeze blowing off of Lake Washington at practice this week that both kickers came up 10 yards short on 45-yard kicks.

BY THE NUMBERS: 11. Number of defensive starters returning.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "He's a young man and he has a back like mine. It's not good." - Coach Mike Holmgren on long snapper Tyler Schmitt, the team's sixth-round draft pick, who was placed on injured reserve.
