Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll (Ted Warren/AP).

After a wacky week with several upsets, Leijur, leads our weekly pick ‘em contest with 15 correct in Week 1, followed by Druvenille, The Real Trublu, JeffyJu and Nwnasty1966, who all finished 13 correct.

Well, this was not the kind of start I was looking for. I got just eight right in the opening week, so there’s plenty of room for improvement.

Ryan Divish got 10 correct.

    King5 reported last night that Steve Largent is on our very short list of people to take over as CEO..

    Personally, as much as I love Largent as a football player, I’m not sure how thrilled I’d be for this.. I don’t particularly care for him as a person.

    I had all the posters, the Riddell jersey, even a Steve Largent autographed mini-ball..

    But then in 1994 he decided to take a run at politics and become the most conservative hypocritical member of congress. He was the ultimate right-wing Christian conservative: banning gay and lesbian adoptions, voting against abortions, going on hunting trips during 9/11 and getting caught swearing on camera when he didn’t like a line of questioning from a local news station..

    This would be like if Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh had played for the hawks a few decades ago and then wanted to come back and run the franchise now, already having isolated half of the nation’s population.

    Currently Largent is the CEO of a “non-profit” wireless communications agency.. I’m not sure that gives him the needed qualifications to run the Seahawks.

    Put his face on a billboard, put his name on the ticket stubs, but don’t put him in charge of anything that matters.. This isn’t a football/personnel position, this is a business position..

    My fear is that now that this information has been leaked, the Hawks will hire him, afraid of the backlash.. Or maybe they are floating it out there to see how fans feel? Unfortunately most fans only know the Largent who scored touchdowns, and not the Largent who tried to strip people of their civil rights, ban programming on TV and Radio, took huge amounts of campaign donations from lobbyists and helped de-regulate a mortgage and banking industry that has since collapsed and left a large number of American families in foreclosure and out of work..

  2. Congrats to Leijur. Just glad I beat Divish.

  3. I think you may have blown your load so to speak with that picture Eric. It would have had more impact later… well, maybe it still can. Its certainly hilarious.

    Snydro, shame on you AND Largent for bringing politics in here. LOL @ Glenn or Rush playing football, although concussions would explain a fair bit… zing!

    JoSCh,

    You’re right.. I hate politics.. I basically think both sides are corrupt..

    All the more reason to keep a politician out of the Seahawks front-office!

    LOL @ the concussions..

    Browns are considering starting Seneca this week..

    Goodbye 7th round, hello 6th!

  6. Thanks for the kudo’s pope. I was 15-0 going into the KC vs SD game I was going to go out and buy a lottery ticket if that went according to plan.

    This is usually a politics free place, but floating Largent’s name automatically means that we will be debating politics….probably means that it is not a good hire. I think that a whole lot of people feel like snydro on this issue.

  8. What?

    Snydro – somehow …. how should i put this …
    U ever get the sinking feeling you’re on an island out in the S Pacific?

    - Paul Allen will make the final decision. Not U,,, I or the 12th Man
    - It will be PA seated beside the new CEO, courtside at the Blazers games.
    - Now, I don’t claim to know the personnel beliefs of the MAN but possibly PA too has Christian values. And just maybe, others in the NFL business world feel the same.
    - Special interest put aside, PR wise, no one holds a candle to Hall of Fame former Seahawk WR, Largent.

    Snydro wishes for a team owner nut job hermit like Howard Hughes more likely to hire a CEO deadbeat the likes of recently departed DT, PittCock.

    Duke – Thought my 8 correct picks were terrible down at the end of the list until your name popped out just below at 7.

    Snydro, I still can’t stand you but, I DO share your opinion on Largent 100%.
