Owen Schmitt landed in Philadelphia last year embittered and angry.

Schmitt returns to Seattle in much the same mood. He played in 30 games in 2008 and 2009, but the Seahawks cut Schmitt out of training camp in 2010 because new coach Pete Carroll's system does not employ a conventional fullback.

"Not that I haven't been playing hard, but I'm sure there will be a little animosity built up a little bit," Schmitt said. “It was a scheme thing. Everybody’s got their way of doing things.”

The Seahawks have gone 11-16 under Carroll and stand at 4-7 this season. The offense is the worst in the NFC. Does that make Schmitt feel better?

“Nah. After I was done there, it was all Eagles,” Schmitt said. “So I haven't worried about it too much.”

Until this week.
