Seahawks Waive Kacyvenski, Sign Weeks

The Seahawks, today, waived former starting linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski in order to promote running back Marquis Weeks off the practice squad. Kacyvenski, a Harvard graduate and special teams standout, would seem to fit in well on a certain team that used to collect these sort of guys like they were Pogs and has about twelve million dollars in cap room.

But Pogs went out of fashion. I mean who'd want Pogs?

Doh. That should be fixed within a few minutes.

Who's Wells? :-)

I'm just glad they're not going to try out Ran "I can't block" Carthon again.

Weeks was a training camp standout - kind of a Morris clone - and I'm glad to see him get a chance, though it's at the expense of Kaz. He would be a model Patriot. Great guy, great story, and if you like the "Moneyball" turn the Seahawks have taken over the last two seasons, he sort of personified that on the surface, though his tenure went back the the Whitsitt era. He'd also be an interesting cog in a 3-4.

Count me as a big Kacyvenski fan. There are a whole lot of teams that could use more guys like him.

He's not like Mike Mazlowski is he? Because that did not work on for the Chiefs.

Man, I hate to see this happen, because I liked Kaz as a Seahawk. Still, I'm not sure where else you'd cut if you're Tim Ruskell.

Kaz didn't set the world on fire when he played on D, but he's a great special teamer and a class act. If the Patriots are thin at LB, they could do a lot worse.

Marquis Weeks? From UVA? I went to high school with him...that's just kind of weird. He was our star wide receiver back then.

I never even realized that the Unabomber played for Seattle.
