Seattle Seahawks: Shaun Alexander's Prime Is Not Over

Cameron VaccarellaContributor IApril 20, 2008

Shaun Alexander is not a man of mystery. He is a man of pride, confidence, and honor.

The Seattle Seahawks have and always will be a team of chance and wisdom. The situation with the running back who has Hall of Fame credentials and helped put this team on the everlasting NFL map has been figured and debated and finally has an answer that makes logical sense...Someone obviously needed to light a fire under his ass to make him run with his pride from 2005.

I can think of no better source of lighter fluid than the signing of two running backs with the ability to challenge him for his beloved starting position.

Seattle will enter training camp with four or five running backs and one of them definitely will be Mr. Shaun Alexander. The only player I doubt will be there is another talented back named Maurice Morris. He stepped into the starting backfield position last year and produced little, if any, good results.

Alexander was an unhealthy, under-appreciated, non-protected superstar at 30 years old last season. Thirty is generally the age when most running backs are near the end of their prime, not past it.

Alexander needs nothing but a push in the right direction to run like he used to.

Get Ready Seattle Seahawks fans, a.k.a. "12th man,” this team will be in the Super Bowl before you blink your eyes.

Go Hawks!
