Seattle Seahawks Notes, Quotes 2009-01-30
--Linebacker Leroy Hill apologized following an arrest Jan. 24 in the Atlanta area on suspicion of marijuana possession. He reportedly was arrested after falling asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle. "We are a team always striving for good, consistent character, so it is disappointing when something like this happens," said team president Tim Ruskell.


--Seattle linebacker Julian Peterson has been named a Pro Bowl injury replacement for Tampa Bay linebacker Derrick Brooks. The trip to Hawaii will be Peterson's fifth overall Pro Bowl appearance, and third straight with Seattle.

--Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck spoke for the first time since Jim Mora officially took over as the team's head coach. During an interview with a local radio station Hasselbeck said his rehabilitation on the bulging disk in his back is going fine, and he should be ready to participate in Seattle's first mini-camp in April. Hasselbeck also said he's had conversations with new offensive coordinator Greg Knapp, and the language used to call plays should be much simpler than Holmgren's offense, which will help with the transition of free agents, draft picks and new additions to the team.

--New Seattle offensive coordinator Greg Knapp has never had an offense finish out of the top 10 in rushing, including stops in San Francisco, Atlanta and Oakland. The Falcons led the league in rushing all three years Knapp was in Atlanta.

--Mora already is looking into how to improve Seattle's struggles on the road, particularly on the East Coast. Mora said he's contacting some track coaches who train elite athletes to compete in international events to ask them how they deal with time changes from one event to the next. The Seahawks are 1-8 the past two seasons in games played in the Eastern time zone.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Our defense is going to play on their toes. They're going to play in your face. They're going to play with energy. They're going to play with passion. They're going to play with relentless effort. They're going to be situationally smart. They're going to make you proud. They're going to make our fans proud." -- Seattle head coach Jim Mora, when asked how his defense will look under the new regime.
