According to The Sports Xchange's Len Pasquarelli, "even some people in his corner" privately question whether Tarvaris Jackson is capable of elevating his play at age 29.
In other words, even T-Jack's closest supporters question if he'll ever emerge as more than a backup-caliber player. Pasquarelli reports that news of Jackson receiving first-team snaps to open Seahawks camp "generated mixed reactions" both inside and outside the Seattle organization. Jackson will open camp as the starter, but he's very likely to be overtaken by Matt Flynn in preseason.

Good news, in my opinion.

I agree. If anything happens to anyone who starts, I know that we'll have a good backup. Whether that will be TJack, Flynn, or even Wilson. QB position isn't going to get any worse. If all else fails and we BOMB this next season, then we can draft Barkley.

Barkley, Flynn, and Wilson would be a bit much. I wonder what'd happen with that QB situation.


We'll never be that bad, though. Our defense will be top 5.

I don't think even with Josh Portis as QB we'd be bad enough for Barkley. Too many worse teams, and we have too much talent. If Flynn doesn't work out Wilson will be next in line.

Hey guys. Do you think the hawks have any FA targets they will go after between camp and preseason?

Not any big names, I wouldn't think. The rest of FA's will probably be depth, backups, filler.

Carroll has been known to turn over the roster (200+ roster changes or however many) but he's over that since our team is much more stable now.

Simple answer: No people have been rumored that we're chasing that I can recall. News has been slow for Seahawks PSD.

We'll have about 46 tryouts by guys not on the roster. Some random veteran will make the team, several random undrafted free agents will hang around and probably play. We'll cut a QB and a veteran that no one expected, maybe two.

Not Seahawks related, but wasn't sure were to put this. But I heard that Sacramento Kings plan to stay fell through and they could be moving next year. Top of the list was Seattle, could you imagine that? Tyreke Evans, Cousins, Fredette, Isaiah Thomas, and Thomas Robinson. That's gonna be a good young talented team pretty soon.

Former exec Softli tells Clayton he believes Wilson will be the starter by the 2013 season if not sooner.

From what I've heard, the Seahawks plan on waiting a year on Wilson. He had great mini camps, but he still needs to learn the playbook. If you look at recent Carroll interviews he doesn't outright say it, but he definitely makes it seem like it's down to a two man race.

I think he could definitely take it next year though. Even though he's extremely smart, and capable I think ANY QB (including RG3 and Luck) should sit a year. Get comfortable ya know? The way fans are nowadays he'll get booed out of town for one poor season. Especially this year when expectations are so high. I don't think he'll see a start all season. Tarvaris will be kept one more year at the #2, and Wilson will take control (of either the back up or starting job) next season.

Seattle4Ever
07-12-2012, 02:21 PM
I'd be extremely satisfied with Flynn starting one season, Wilson taking the reins next year, and having Flynn back him up. Flynn is more than capable of being a good backup.

Also, the need to figure out whether they're going with Flynn or Wilson soon, because they need to get them all of the first team reps. Or at least majority.

I'm assuming T-Jack doesn't stay first string. That would be a catastrophe, to me.

Mike Williams - WR - Seahawks
Seahawks released WR Mike Williams.
Williams' release comes just four days after the Seattle Times postulated his roster spot was up in the air. Still rehabbing from a gruesome late-season leg injury, Williams was set to count $3.6 million against the cap after catching just 18 passes for 236 yards in 12 games in 2011. The move is good news for Ben Obomanu and Deon Butler, who now have one less body to compete with. Although Williams' 2010 comeback made for an excellent story, he should draw scant interest in free agency heading into his age-28 campaign.

Seattle4Ever
07-13-2012, 05:41 PM
Didn't expect this, but I'm actually pretty glad it happened. He played extremely poorly last season.

Now the only WR I don't really want/care for to make the roster is Obo :shrug:

Jackson wasn't his problem, he was his problem. I've been expecting this move since the season ended. He's lazy, period. Just take a look at his fat face and you have everything you need to know. Football became a priority for one season and then he relapsed to the same lazy guy he always was last season, and with his injury he just wasn't going to have it in him to put the work in to stay in shape.

I agree for the most part. I disagree on behalf of T-Jack not even looking his way. Yes, he got fat. Yes, he got lazy. Yes, his route running was subpar. But it's hard to catch it when your QB doesn't even bother to see if you're wide open :shrug:


Anyways, this should have been done awhile ago.

I'd be shocked if both Obo and Butler made the team. Pete Carroll likes his players to have something about them that is an advantage. Height, speed, explosion, power, length, hops, things like that. Butler has the speed. Obo has, well nothing special. Obo has the special teams, but we have such a fantastic group of backup DB's I wonder how important Obo would be anyway. He had some extremely costly drops last year, coaches don't forget those. I wouldn't be shocked if both were eventually let go though.

Rice
Tate
Baldwin
Durham
Lockette
Butler
Obomanu

Jackson looked his way. Not as much as Matt when BMW was our only guy most of the time (remember it was Williams, Obo, and Stokely 123 that year). Seemed like every contested opportunity Williams had he didn't come up with the ball. He certainly wasn't getting open much so he's got to catch those. He wasn't. I don't blame Jackson.

FWBrodie
07-13-2012, 08:07 PM
The injury to the ankle had little to nothing to do with his release. According to the trainers and what I could get from Carroll, Mikes weight coupled with last years performance were enough to get him released. Too many times, Mike would just quit on a route, decreasing his stats and (apparently) making it hard for Jackson to want to throw the ball in his direction. Right now, Mike is not in the shape he needs to be in to play at the NFL level.

Mike, when asked said he was not surprised by his release, and had been expecting it for some time. The Hawks made the move early enough for him to maybe catch on with another team, if his ankle heals well enough.

This now leaves big questions at the receiving position. Butler, Baldwin, Lockette and Tate are really going to have to shine if Seattle is to not become a one deminsional team. Rice will be double teamed where ever and when ever possible, so we really need a star to emerge. If we dont have one, we need to buy one.

So who's out there in Free Agency?

Fantastic Russell Wilson interview (http://www.wralsportsfan.com/ncsu/audio/11304069/). It's on the radio back home and he's kind of back in his comfort zone away from the NFL spotlight so you kind of get a different side of him than most of the other cookie-cutter interviews in Seattle. He gives some candid observations of the northwest, the Seahawks, and coach Carroll, and he even defends the weather.

So could Baldwin or Tate really.

I think that's what it came down to. Why expend all the effort it would take to babysit Mike and keep him motivated when we've got all this young talent so hungry to get on the field and show what they can do.

Doug Baldwin says he'll approach every season like he did last year, as if he's an UDFA desperate to make the team. Mike obviously doesn't have that in him. Never get comfortable.

Unless Flynn plays like utter trash, or gets injured I don't see Wilson playing this season or next. He was a 3rd round pick. He has a lot of talent, and he's smart, but this is the NFL. He's got a lot of learning to do.

Lavasier Tuinei looks like a serious redzone weapon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__6dwDilIl4&feature=colike). 6'5" and ran a 4.5, he has good hands and fantastic body control. I think he's going to make it tough for Obo or Butler to make this team. I'm excited.

FWBrodie
07-15-2012, 09:17 AM
At 6-foot-4 1/2 and 222 pounds, Tuinei provides a massive target. In three seasons, he caught 108 passes for 1,212 yards and 12 touchdowns. As a senior, he had career highs in receptions (48), yards (599), touchdowns (10) and average (11.2 per reception). He closed his career by being named the Rose Bowl’s top offensive player after riddling Wisconsin for eight catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns.

Tuinei is projected to be an undrafted free agent, according to NFL scout Dave-Te Thomas. His physical attributes, however, are highly intriguing and easily could move him into Day 3. Among receivers in this draft who are at least 6-foot-3, Tuinei boasts:

— The fourth-fastest 40, at an average of 4.52 seconds at his pro day.

— The second-longest broad jump, at 126 inches.

— The fastest three-cone drill at 6.71 seconds, a figure that would have ranked third among all receivers at the Scouting Combine.

— The second-fastest 20-yard shuttle at 4.12 seconds.

On an Oregon offense that ran the ball 62 percent of the time, Tuinei made the most of his opportunities. Of the 15 touchdown catches by the Ducks’ receivers, Tuinei hauled in 10 of them.

“I just feel like I didn’t get the opportunities like they did,” Tuinei said of the draft’s other big receivers. “Coming from an offense that ran it (62) percent of the time, the opportunities were limited. I just tried to make plays as much as I could whenever the ball came my way.” http://gnb.scout.com/2/1180923.html
His dad, Van Tuinei, was an NFL player.

No matter how talented they are, we still have little to no experience at the WR position. We need a veteran IMO. T.O. anyone? Lol JK.

I definitely wouldn't count WR as a strength though. We're average at best at that position IMO.

Rice-Needs to be healthy

BMW- Fat and gone

Obo- Average

Butler- Below Average

Lockette- Talented but unproven.

Isn't that by just some forum poster though? In my opinion he was cut more due to the injury he suffered he hasn't been able to practice at all.

Makes me wonder if the FO didn't think he was going to stay healthy or be able to start and WR is our deepest position.

Weight could be the issue though i did see a video on the Real Rob Report where he didn't look like he was in real good shape but i would like to see something more official before jumping to that conclusion.

That's just an IMO. I haven't liked Butler for awhile. He's fast with subpar hands IMO. I really don't know where to put Tate. He's had spot of good things to come, but he's yet to show consistency. I just wouldn't call it a strength.

I don't know anything about Phill Bates and Tunei. They're undrafted free agents, and I don't think there's even a guarantee they'll make the team. I don't want to grade them before I see them play in the NFL.

Seattle4Ever
07-16-2012, 03:33 PM
Actually, weird that you say consistency is a problem with Tate.

He didn't drop one ball deemed "catchable" the whole entire season in '11. Only WR in the league to do it. It is a smaller sample size (35), but Obomanu had 45 catchable balls and he dropped 8. Devin Hester had LESS (30), and dropped 4.


This wasn’t exactly the biggest surprise in the world as Tate has only dropped one ball (Week 13 versus Carolina in 2010) since entering the league. His perfect Drop Rate score just adds to our feeling (he scored a +5.2 for his receiving) that Tate’s playing time in 2012 needs to replicate the end to his 2011, and not the beginning.

He's fat, lazy, old, and injured. Pete Carroll got through to him and got him to give a **** for one season. After that, Mike went back to the laziness that has followed him throughout his career. With an injury making staying in shape more difficult, you just knew he wasn't going to put in the extra effort it was going to take. We've got a bunch of guys who don't need to be babied and pushed every step of the way. Mike knew it was coming, he knew he'd gained weight and played poorly last season. In Pete Carroll's locker room either you're in or you're not.

Actually, weird that you say consistency is a problem with Tate.

He didn't drop one ball deemed "catchable" the whole entire season in '11. Only WR in the league to do it. It is a smaller sample size (35), but Obomanu had 45 catchable balls and he dropped 8. Devin Hester had LESS (30), and dropped 4.

I meant consistency in production not dropped balls. By that I mean he doesn't string together a lot of good games in a row. Maybe if he earns the #2 spot he'll show what he can really do. He didn't seem to be targeted too much last season in the first place.

Yeah. He made plays where they counted. I'll have to look at some of last years games again when I get some time. See how his route running has progressed because he wasn't very good at the beginning of his career. Getting picked on by Sherman and Browner for a year must make you a pretty strong player/guy considering both of them like to talk a lot during practice, and they're both great corners. If he's still on the team, and still in the mix he has to of gotten better.

This is a Bilitnikoff Award winner, with strong hands, an extremely low center of gravity that makes him very hard to tackle, and 4.4 flat speed. We knew he was raw as a route runner, and found out he was probably a little immature as well, but after two seasons, several flashes of his upside, and consistently turning his opportunities into production, it's time for him to put it all together. I think he's our future kick/punt returner, a guy who can be counted on to make tough catches, a gimmicky guy that can be involved in a lot of ways, and probably our best big play threat. Earlier in the offseason I predicted 8 TD's for Tate this year.

He does make a good point though Brodie. There hasn't been an official weight brought in by the Seahawks (although I don't recall anytime where a team reported someone weight when releasing them). This could of been more to do with his laziness on the football field, and the fight that happened a few weeks ago. I heard he wasn't in the greatest shape, but he definitely didn't look like he did for Detroit or Oakland.

Captains. The players will vote on the captains for the regular season. But it’s up to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll to determine the captains for each preseason game.

“Those are kind of randomly selected at the last second, when I remember to do it,” Carroll said.

But the honor still means a lot to those randomly selected, last-minute selections.

Against the Titans in the preseason opener, former Titans defensive lineman Jason Jones was a co-captain, along with veteran linebacker Leroy Hill, Pro Bowl fullback Michael Robinson and Heath Farwell, who led the league in special teams tackles last season.

“It meant a lot. Actually, it was my first time being a captain,” said Jones, who played the previous four seasons with the Titans. “I told coach Carroll after the game and before the game that I appreciate that. Going up against my old team, that meant a lot to me. It was cool.”

Against the Broncos last week, former Broncos kicker Steven Hauschka joined center Max Unger and nose tackle Brandon Mebane at midfield for the pre-game coin toss.

“It’s always nice to go out there and do the coin toss,” said Unger, who won it by calling tails which allowed the Seahawks to defer taking the kickoff until the second half. “Tails never fails.

“It was awesome.”
http://blog.seahawks.com/2012/08/23/thursday-in-hawkville-calling-all-captains/
Pete Carroll sure knows how to build his guys up.


With Alan Branch (knee) and Jones (knee) watching, rookie Greg Scruggs got some work as the three-technique tackle with the No. 1 defensive line.

I think Bruce needs to develop a move to the inside. Whether its a spin move after starting to the outside or whatever. He can't expect to get the edge every time on good tackles in the NFL. He'll tear up the nobodies, but he'll need to develop a second move if he wants to be a premier rusher.

I don't have a problem with Bull rushing as long as he uses his speed to get the tackle off balanced first. He just hasn't seemed to put it together quite yet, but we knew going into the pick that he was a very athletic special talent that needed to be coached up. Even Bruce knew that.

Hes on a 1-yr Franchise tender of $9.5M. Id offer a conditional 3rd for him pending a 3-4yr/deal

What in the world happened to the Thurmond thread?


Seahawks coach Pete Carroll called it a "bonus Monday" practice as his players returned from a weekend off with fresh legs.

Following the session inside team headquarters in Renton, Carroll assigned his team to watch "Monday Night Football" between the Lions and Bears. Seattle plays at Detroit on Sunday, and Carroll believes there is value getting an introduction to the opponent through the television broadcast. The Seahawks also face Chicago this season.

Cornerback Walter Thurmond's long journey back from a broken leg is nearly complete. The former Oregon Duck is eligible to come off the team's physically unable to perform list. Thurmond practiced Monday and told reporters afterward he is eager to have coaches trust him enough to play on Sunday.

Carroll said guard John Moffitt practiced but wasn't sure whether his knee injury had progressed enough to play this week. Receiver Doug Baldwin was held out of the workout with an ankle injury.

I forgot to mention this the other day. Lasavier Tuinei has been added to the Practice Squad to replace Jermaine Kearse. This kid has good size/speed (6'4", 220lbs/4.5). When we originally signed him as an UDFA, rumors were he could be used as a TE. I hope he does well and gets to see the field. I know it was only one game, but Kearse didn't do crap other drop a pass for an EASY 1st down.

We have one open roster spot and its for Thurmond. Last week our roster was full. We then made 2 moves:

1. Placed Obomanu (WR) on IR and signed Kearse (WR)
2. We released Gorrer (CB) and signed Person (OT)

We released Martin (WR) to make room for Thurmond (CB). We typically only carry 3 OTs, but w/ Carpenter out w/ a concussion and Omiyale missing practice, we needed an additioal OL. I think things will remain quiet for a while. I have heard Tuinei was brought onto PS to get familiar with playbook and he could see the 53-man at some point

Well Sidney Rice was on tape saying he has the best hands of the WR core, so that might be a reason. I also heard he does really well in practice, its just in-game moments where he messes up. He seems to be trying to move before he catches the football; as its similar to when a player in basketball turns it over because they took their eyes off the ball.

Penalties that would negate a potential sack are acceptable in my eyes. A sack yields a loss of down and yardage. I get so PISSED when Giacomini gets a penalty though. Its usually a stupid unsportsman-like after a big play and negates it.

Marshawn Lynch has eight carries with two or more players missing tackles on him, which is the most in the league.

On average, the 49ers have averaged 3.2 yards before their runner is contacted, thanks to a great run-blocking line. That is the highest rate in the league.
