Thursday cyber surfing: Rocky’s redemption

Good morning. Here’s what’s “out there” about the Seahawks for today, Feb. 2:

Mike Sando at takes a look at Rocky Bernard’s opportunity for Super Bowl redemption. The former Seahawks defensive tackle lost in Super Bowl XL, but gets another crack with the Giants on Sunday: “I don’t want to feel that pain again,” Bernard said. “It’s something you can’t get over. You work so hard to get to that point and we were so confident going into the game, felt like we could win.”

Speaking of Super Bowl losses, Sando also ranks the Top 10 Super Bowl losers. At No. 1 is the Patriots’ loss to the Giants four years ago: “The only 16-0 team in regular-season NFL history outscored opponents by 19.7 points per game, a record. Tom Brady’s 50 touchdown passes exceeded by one the record Peyton Manning set in 2004. New England scored at least 38 points in half its regular-season games. The Patriots drew fines for illicitly taping opponents’ signals and criticism after twice going for it on fourth down while leading Joe Gibbs’ Redskins by 38-plus points.”

Rob Rang at has a new mock draft and it includes a new selection for the Seahawks: Penn State DT Devon Still. Says Rang: “Many expect the Seahawks to consider a quarterback to compete with incumbent starter Tarvaris Jackson with this selection but in beating the New York Giants and Baltimore Ravens last year, and matching up well with division champion San Francisco, the club may not be willing to reach to fill a perceived need. Don’t be surprised if Seattle instead turns its attention to a bounty of talented defensive linemen likely to be selected in the top 15. Still, a 6-4, 310-pound defensive tackle, showed his talent and despite all of the distractions in Happy Valley last year, was the Big Ten’s Defensive Player of the Year. Still could help inside at defensive tackle as well as provide the Seahawks with some flexibility at the five technique defensive end position should incumbent starter Red Bryant be heavily pursued in free agency.”

Here at, we take a look at a couple of off-field situations where Cortez Kennedy also stood out during his Hall of Fame-worthy career with the Seahawks: “Like in 1996, when then-owner Ken Behring was attempting to move the franchise to Southern California. Behring was determined to make it happen, and even started the team’s offseason conditioning program at the Rams’ old facility in Anaheim. But Kennedy’s resolve proved to be just as firm. He refused to participate; pointing out that the contract he had signed was with the Seattle Seahawks.”
