Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable on the play of rookies Bailey and Bowie
Asked what he saw from those two, offensive line coach Tom Cable said, "Some really cool stuff. I’m really excited about their future, our future. I thought both those kids went in there and knocked people off the ball, protected really well. They go comfortable really quick, which was a huge moment of growth, if you will, that they’re OK. They can handle it in a regular NFL Game. I’m very pleased with what we saw."
"I think we saw it in camp, you just don’t know until they really have to go do it. It’s like anything—probably a little reserved that way until they prove it, and they certainly have proved it."
Asked what that experience does for those players, Cable said, "It’s like gold. Now you feel like you’re not just starting over if you have to do it. They’ve been there, they’ve done it, so it’s just normal preparation, and if they’re called upon they’ve just got to go do what they’re capable of doing. Don’t do anything more than that."
That experience could be important this week given the uncertainty about Giacomini's knee.
