Day 18 highlights

Four downs with ...

Mike Green, SS

Height: 6-0. Weight: 195.

Experience: Seventh year.

College: Northwestern State (La.).

Hometown: Ruston, La.

Born: Dec. 6, 1976.

Any interesting nicknames? "Uh, Greenie."

Three things you have to have at training camp: "My cellphone, a radio and sweets. Like cakes and stuff."

What was your first car? "A Pontiac Grand Am. Nine years ago."

The funniest Seahawk is: "Jimmy Williams, by far. He just says whatever comes to his mind, and he's crazy."

Josť Miguel Romero

Practices: One practice in the morning, with full pads.

Big plays: WR Tony Brown held on to a pass after bobbling it in stride. CB Kelly Herndon, limited because of soreness in recent days, knocked down two passes and intercepted another when he caught a ball that glanced off WR Peter Warrick's hands. LB Julian Peterson was unstoppable in one-on-one pass-rush drills, as has often been the case. DE Robert Pollard knocked G Jeff Bolton on his back during a drill, and WR Nate Burleson hauled in a Matt Hasselbeck 40-yard pass with a leap over S Oliver Celestin.

Temperatures: 63 degrees when practice began.

Snapshot: Coach Mike Holmgren talked about his decision to take the team to a private screening of "Invincible." The film is about Vince Papale, a teacher and bartender who tried out for and made the Philadelphia Eagles' roster in 1976. The team saw the movie Thursday afternoon in lieu of practice. "They've been working real hard and we had a pretty long week," Holmgren said. "We were able to get a hold of this movie ... just to change it up a little bit for the coaches and players, give them a little break." The team still held its nightly meetings, but moved them to a later time.
