Eric Spoesltra is native of Portland, Ore., which is not too far away from the Seattle Seahawks training facility. Well today the NBA Champion coach spent the day at the Seattle Seahawks team headquarters, which included a talk with the full team this morning.
Spoelstra also hung out for practice, talking with defensive passing game coordinator Rocky Seto along the sideline. Russell Wilson and company are not that far off in my opinion from winning a ring, something that Spoelstra has a couple of.
“Just having him here in front of the team, just having him in meetings with us, and having him at practice with us is an unbelievable experience for everybody,” Wilson said. “For him to talk about how his basketball team was successful and they went about their business in terms of sacrificing – basically that’s what he said. The whole idea of sacrificing everything, the players like Lebron (James) coming to Miami and Dwayne Wade sacrificing all of that.
“That sacrifice that it takes to be great, and to be great so often is kind of what he was talking about for the most part, and having that discipline too as well is something that he also talked about. Just working hard, continuing to work hard, continuing to believe in yourself, and ignoring the noise and that kind of stuff. That’s the main message he gave, and it clicked with us. – Per The News Tribune
Richard Sherman and others greeted the coach today, but was this speech enough to put the Seahawks over the edge? I think if the Seahawks could get a solid few receivers they would be a Super Bowl contender. Until that happens, I still don’t see that happening for the time being. With Percy Harvin on the PUP, the team will need to get great play out of former Stanford WR Doug Baldwin.Do you follow the NFL Draft?
