“Off day” might just be a major misnomer.
Even though today, like every Tuesday during the season, is a day off for players, Virginia Mason Athletic Center still bustles with activity. Already this morning, players have been conducting voluntary workouts in the weight room, getting in rehab sessions in the training room and watching film in the meeting rooms.
Coaches, as always, are grinding away on the game plan for Sunday’s game, sitting in offensive and defensive staff meetings to crystallize the schemes and plays that’ll be installed on Wednesday and used this weekend in Chicago.
So team headquarters continues to buzz on a supposedly quiet day, meaning the “off day” term might need to be clarified — it’s an off day from practice and meetings, but not from the dedicated prep work the Seahawks are putting in to get ready for their next game.
