    Defensive end Wistrom placed on Hawks' physically unable to perform listl

    A bad back kept Grant Wistrom off the field for the Seattle Seahawks' most recent minicamp. It now appears Wistrom will miss the start of training camp as well.

    The team's prized defensive end was among four players placed on the "physically unable to perform" list Saturday, indicating he failed a physical examination.

    As much as I hate to see a former Ram down on his luck, there's a part of me that would be laughing wholeheartedly if Seattle doesn't get their money's worth on the first season.

      I'd have to agree.

        That's too bad. Wistrom is a good guy. I saw him on NFL Total Access just yesterday and he looked fine to me. I hope it is not serious.

          I hate to see a player of his stature going out like that. Lets hope he is fine and I for one, wish him all the best.

          Although a possible relapse just before the Rams games is always a favourable event to look forward to ;)

          Keeping the Rams Nation Talking

            Pesonally I would love to have him in the lineup when we play Seattle.
            I really want to see some proof that we did the right thing. Watching our highly skilled line shut him down would be great. Not to mention a mental boost for the players. You always get fired up when playing against a former teammate so I say bring him on I hope he miraculously recovers by tommorow.

              he's a good guy and a great player. BUT, he left us for a divisional rival. I wish him well as a former Ram, but I can't say I'd miss him come Seachicken week.

                Wistrom: We played like crap at every position on defense

                Wistrom: We played like crap at every position on defense

                We're still 3-1. Mistakes are correctable.

                Grant Wistrom didn't mince words on how the Seahawks defense played in the fourth quarter against his former team. "We went out there and we played like crap at every position on defense," said Wistrom. "It was a total breakdown. We werenít getting pressure on them, guys were running around free because he (Bulger) had so much time to throw. We pretty much self-destructed out there."

                Q: How can that happen when you dominated the first half?

                Grant Wistrom: "We made mistakes, but they made plays. Theyíre a very good team. I've said it all week that they are 2-2, but they could easily be 3-1 or 4-0, as Coach Holmgren stated. They are a very, very talented offense. Any lapse in your assignment theyíre going to exploit, and thatís what happened."

                Q: Does this change the preparation for next week's game?

                Grant Wistrom: "We just have to look inward now. We will really find out what this team is all about. Itís easy to get along and everybody has fun when youíre winning every week. Now we have to refocus our efforts and come together as a family, and go out there and play better and play harder."

                Q: How was it playing your old team?

                Grant Wistrom: "Itís just more distractions: warming up and trying to say 'hi' to people. Thatís the main difference."

                Q: What's the status of the division now?

                Grant Wistrom: "People who handed us the division donít know a lot about the Rams, because they are a very, very good football team, and they are going to come ready to play every Sunday. They have had a couple of slipups this year, and thatís why they were 2-2, but I think they showed today why they are still a team to be reckoned with out there."

                Q: How do you feel you played today?

                Grant Wistrom: "I donít think I played very well today. I think I can play much better, and I expect to go out and play a lot better next week."

                Wistrom on HS Coaching Staff
                by MOM
                Turns out the rumors were true.

                Parkview High School football coach Wes Beachler confirmed Monday that former St. Louis Rams defensive end Grant Wistrom will be an assistant coach at Parkview.

                Word first leaked that Wistrom, 30, was planning to coach at Parkview in a Seattle Post Intelligencer story last week, in which Wistrom hinted at his retirement from the NFL and the Seattle Seahawks.

                Chance Wistrom, the Parkview principal, is Grant Wistromís brother.

                Wistrom has played 10 years in the NFL at defensive end, six with the St. Louis Rams, with whom he won a Super Bowl in 1999. In college, Wistrom helped the University of Nebraska to three national championships. He played his high school football at Webb City.
