Da Fort is Back!

Danny Fortson's knee might still be gimpy, but it sounds like his elbows are in mid-season form:
For the first time in training camp, Danny Fortson participated in a scrimmage, which was open to the media. He fared well until getting frustrated and flooring rookie free agent Kenny Adeleke with an elbow.

Fortson, who has not played in a game since Jan. 23, then left the scrimmage, iced both knees and went into treatment. It looks more and more as if he will open the season on the roster and could receive playing time if his gimpy left knee holds up.

Read the rest in today's Seattle P.I.
And, in case you missed it the first time around, here's our Dannny Fortson comic book in all its glory:

Sounds like a new episode for you and Chunks to draw up. Make sure to include Danny abusing Swift and doing the cross-over on him. LOL!

It's going to be a long season for our centers... (groan!)

Yeah, Paul, get working on the new script! I don't do those fruity "no-talking or violence" cartoons you know.

Has anyone figured out why we like Fortson so much? There are a number of possibilities, including his ridiculous hair, the fouls, the girth, the way he attacks the boards ...

Honestly, I can't put my finger on it, but my own personal reason is the way he seems to play the game with abandon, but unlike Reggie Evans, he actually has some ability.

The craziest thing about Fortson is that he didn't come into the league as a wide-bodied banger, but as a scorer and shooter.

Personally, it's because he's pretty much the only player on the team that can do much of anything down low, both on offense and defense.
