  1. So I can read the first four comments, is it my computer or is something wrong with the page?

  2. Got it now, yeah.

  3. “Comment From PalerydrPalerydr: ]

    Don’t let Bobbyk know you like Portis god only knows what kind of rant he’ll go on”


    Lets clear the record: I have ***NO*** problem with Portis as a developmental football player.

    All I have said is that I want someone to play the QB position, for my favorite professional franchise, who can represent his family, fans, city, etc. in the most positive light possible.

    Look. I’m not stupid. I know that there are plenty of NFL players who are not choir boys. That’s fine. Those guys can be dumber than a box of rocks, criminals, or whatever… I don’t care. There’s no way you’re ever going to get 50+ angels. I get it.

    However, the QB is the face of your franchise. He’s the guy people care about. You want someone good. That’s the most important consideration.

    However, you want someone who will represent everyone in a positive light. You want someone you can be proud of. You want someone you can root for as a person (T-Jack has this part down pat!). As the father of a 7 month old little guy, you want someone whose jersey you can buy and know you’re setting him up to have a role model who is worthy (I know that I’m his most important role model, but the fact is that young ones are influenced by the famous too).

    All I’m asking the Seattle Seahawks is for them to get me (all of us) someone we can all be proud of at the most important position in all of professional sports. This position goes beyond football, I don’t want to become a laughing stock because our QB gambled too much (Art S.), killed dogs (Mike V.), etc.

    or aledgedly did inappropriate things with a drunk college girl in the bathroom of the local pub…not that I’m mentioning any names here.

  5. Rapistburger, the wife beating Warren Moon (he was here in MN when that happened; not even mentioning the drunk driving stuff), or whoever… I want a good guy at that position!

  6. FleaFlicker says:

    What’s wrong with taking a couple lower round QBs like Cousins or Moore and seeing how they do? Those guys are leaders. Maybe I’m just too in love with Moore being the small-town Washington kid that could, but his production in college was just too sick to ignore. It’s kind of like putting some small bets on the roulette table and maybe you can hit a big payday. We just don’t have the draft position to land a big fish.

    Save the higher round picks for areas of need like DE or LB or second WR. And save the cap space for FAs of opportunity.

    I need a time machine. 58 days is too long to wait for the draft!

    Gentlemen, your thoughts?

    Clayton was just on with Pete, and was told that Pete definitely has interest in Mario Williams and that people feel as if the Seahawks will definitely be one of the top teams in pursuing Williams’ services. I have recently commented on the matter, and am obviously all aboard. I know many do not “want” Williams in Seattle, because it would almost certainly negate any chance of Seattle spending big money on a QB, due to the vast amount of money that it would take to land Williams. However, I certainly wouldn’t be bent about landing Williams and drafting a QB such as Cousins or even Tannehill (although I am not completely sold on him). It would obviously mean another season of Jackson, but I feel I can endure that. I speak only on my behalf, but it is just an opinion.

  8. HawkfaninMT says:

    Williams, and Tannenhill would be a fine way to fill our QB and DE needs… T-Jack for a year and Tannehill is the QBotF. I’m in if that’s what PC/JS think is best

  9. Palerydr says:

    Ok I rarely read this section but glad I did. I agree with you Bobby a QB is held to a higher standard whether he likes it or not. Whoever we get has to be a solid citizen for sure.

  10. freedom_X says:

    If somehow Robert Griffin slips past the #2 pick (I don’t believe St. Louis will ever trade with Seattle unless Seattle massively overpays on an already high price) – signing Mario Williams could help Seattle move up from #12.

    I think Chris Clemons could be trade bait if Williams is signed. He’s a highly productive pass rusher with a very reasonable contract. Thus, he’s very valuable to Seattle. But you have to give up something to get something, and so he’s a valuable, proven commodity that could help make a deal possible if Mario Williams comes on board.

    That could be enough to make the move up – perhaps 2 1sts, 2 3rds, and Chris Clemons.


    A movie entitled the sea hawk, starring Errol Flynn? Could it be an omen?

  12. “A movie entitled the sea hawk, starring Errol Flynn? Could it be an omen?”

    LMAO! Looks like BobbyK with a sword.

  13. My dream scenario is still Matt Flynn in FA and Nick Perry in the draft.

    If you put a gun to my head and asked who I thought would make the most Pro Bowls from this draft class, this is what I’d say…

    1. Luck
    2. DeCastro

    The problem here is that we’ve got a good, future LG (Carp) and a guy I really like now in Moffitt. I like them (and McQuistan as depth for G/T).

    I believe there’s a balance between need and BPA…

    However, if we don’t address the QB position… then I don’t care and I’ll be hoping for DeCastro as BPA, as I’ll know 2012 really doesn’t matter to the organization anyways (so why should I care?).

  14. chuck — I hate that phrase too. Settle…

  15. Errr… “Pay the Man!”

    Not, “settle…” lol

  16. RDPoulsbo says:

    I wouldn’t call Portis’s character issues the biggest flag, but the idea that he was jumping from one college to the next is the one for me. He never stuck around a single place long enough to show any type of leadership and pull through adversity with those around him. As a QB, leadership is one of the most important qualities. Last year, even with all the skill, Mallett fell to the 3rd round on questions about his leadership and he looks like Gen. Patton when you compare his leadership to Portis.

    Williams would an interesting FA pickup, but wouldn’t he want to go to a true 3-4? Yes, Seattle is a hybrid scheme, but my guess is he’ll be harder to land than just talking dollar figures.
