Seattle Seahawk fullback Mack Strong announced his retirement today, a day after suffering a herniated disk in his neck that was causing trauma to his spinal cord. The loss of their lead blocker is a fatal one to the already struggling Seahawks. In a whopping 15 years in the NFL, ironman Mack Strong has blocked for three 1,000 yard rushers in Chris Warren, Ricky Watters, and Shaun Alexander. As an active member of the Seattle Church of Christ and President Bush's Pro Bowl friend, Mack Strong has been one of my favorite Seahawks. Thanks for a great career Mack.
