Golden Nuggets: The Year of Forsett

Justin Forsett has been locked in a battle for the starting RB role for the Seattle Seahawks.  Forsett's chances are even better now that Seattle has cut LenDale White (though White would not have been a threat to Justin).  

Forsett said the experience last season let him know that he can get it done at this level.

"It meant a lot, just knowing I could start and get the ball," Forsett said. "I’m OK with getting the ball, 22-23 times a game. And I’m excited about the opportunity. It’s been going well so far, so I’m ready for the season to start.

"I couldn’t have asked for a better situation. I’m getting an opportunity and everybody’s fighting for the job. It’s open competition, and every time you get competition everybody’s level is going to rise a little bit. We’re getting better everyday and fighting everyday, so it’s going well."

While Forsett continues to get reps with the first unit along with Jones and White, he’s also working on special teams as a punt and kick returner. So no matter who emerges as the starting running back come September, expect Forsett to be an important playmaker for Seattle on offense and special teams.

"When everything is settled and whatever my role is, I want to excel at it," he said. "If it’s me coming in and helping out the offense sometimes and doing kickoff and punt returns, I’m going to do that. I’m going to settle into it and help this team win."

After the jump women's crew is the runner-up for the 2010 NCAA Championship, tennis' Jana Juricova advances to the national title match, baseball wins two crucial games against Oregon, softball's postseason comes to an end, and more.

  • ESPN's NFC West beat writer Mike Sando enthusiastically supports Forsett as the starter at Seattle.
  • In his five thoughts for summer, Wilner says Cal (and Washington) could be a surprise team in the Pac-10 this season, as expectations are low and the Bears are lead by an experienced offense.  He also says Cal is among the teams least equipped to deal with an injury to the starting QB.
