Newcomer Wahle has solidified front wall



August 14, 2008

Although the Seahawks currently have their share of issues at center and right guard, daily camp observers tell us the stabilizing force that veteran newcomer Mike Wahle has been providing at left guard has certainly helped to partially offset those concerns. “His impact was noticeable right from the start,” a longtime team insider told PFW. “He immediately became like another coach in the weight room during the team’s offseason conditioning program, and although he’s not overpowering like Steve Hutchinson was, he’s very solid and very quick, particularly pulling on screen passes and runs to the outside.” Clearly, the former Pro Bowler has solidified what has been a sore spot since Hutchinson split the scene for Minnesota. “He will definitely make life a lot easier for (longtime OLT) Walter Jones, the insider said. “Unlike some of the other guys who have been working next to Walter since Hutchinson left, Mike really appears to know what he’s doing.”
