With the emergence of David Hawthorne, many Seahawks fans are asking, "What do we do when Lofa Tatupu comes back?"
It's a tough question. Playing Tatupu means playing a proven leader of a defense and a guy who knows opposing schemes like the back of his facemask.
On the other hand, Hawthorne has steadily and rapidly improved as a defensive playmaker, with three interceptions and a plethora of the hard hits he's known for. He's also a superior athlete.
I say, instead of choosing one or the other, why not both?
