More defense!

It'll be nice to see Peyton play but I could really care less.

We'll see what T.O has, see the QB battle develop more, and hopefully continue our success on defense.

I want to see the WR situation unfold a little more.

I'm pretty much stoked and pumped to watch the #1 defense wreck the Broncos.

I voted Russell to TO. Hopefully that'll be a deadly combo all year.

I'd like to see Edwards step up again, show he's back.

FWBrodie
08-16-2012, 11:34 PM
I'm looking at Tate to rack up some quantity. He's flashing all the time, I'd like to see 3 or 4 catches.

I want good play from our offensive guards, and Turbin to show consistency in the run game.

Good point, makes me look stupid as ****. I'll say Flynn to TO then; I'm pumped for TO this season.

What's the deal with Marshawn Lynch?

08-17-2012, 07:40 AM
I'm going to go with Wilson and Lockette. Wilson will outplay Flynn again and Lockette will get the most pt of all the receivers.

The question really meant which WR and QB will have the best game. Don't have to be together.

Fantasy!

He's been banned from team facilities and will likely be suspended for 8 games. Do not draft.

When and where the heck did you see that? Everything I keep hearing is just a game or two if at all.

jej

Yeah, I've heard he could avoid it this year because they want to stretch out the trial, and the league won't take action until he is proven guilty.

Also want to know where he heard Lynch was banned from team facilities. I have not heard that.

I think Brodie is pulling your guy's leg.

I think Lynch is going to get off easy it's been 2 years since he has had any kind of incident and the League doesn't seem to take DUI's to seriously.

I could be wrong though i have to remember this is Roger Goodell lol.

Maybe not lightened, but brightened. If you look at th green jerseys we wore once, they are a little more dull. Now it is too neon for me. I really like the jerseys tho.

Why did we choose to change em when no one else did?

Change and i am sure there is a good marketing strategy here since a lot of young people will buy them.

I like the change though i never liked our old blue unis i wish we would of done a retro 90's alternate.

But then I grew to love them after like a day. Lol. The grey alternates are gonna be diiiiiiiiiiirty.

Flynn looks a little erratic today. Just some miscommunication or something.

Also, I hate audibles. Hasslebeck ruined it for me with all his ****** play changes.

Burleson81
08-18-2012, 09:41 PM
Well, Peyton Manning and Willis McGahee still got it. That drive was humbling. I guess our defense will have film to look at later. :D

Mile High is such a unfair advantage glad we don't play them during the regular season.

jej
08-18-2012, 09:46 PM
Flynn looks rediculous in a football uniform. Sleeves are loose, helmet is shaped weird. Not to mention he is white.

Burleson81
08-18-2012, 10:00 PM
Aside from a deep throw that was dropped by T.O., Flynn has been unimpressive.

jej
08-18-2012, 10:01 PM
Breno always does that ****.

Burleson81
08-18-2012, 10:08 PM
Our defense loves turnovers.

Burleson81

After a third altercation, commentator says, "maybe it was the tex mex" and "he seems a little irritable." :D

08-18-2012, 10:29 PM
Hahah yeah. He is obviously the problem, it's been multiple different people that he is fighting with. He is looking for it.

kyuss275
08-18-2012, 10:47 PM
Flynn did not look very good, but i think a lot has to do with the recievers not being able to get open. TO has to make that 50 yard td catch. Need Rice and Baldwin badly. Running game looks good.

NateyB24
08-18-2012, 11:04 PM
Yea but that was about the best throw he made though Wilson looks very in command now to bad Caroll hasn't played Wilson against the 1's yet he looks totally in control and with the 2nd string receivers.

jej
08-18-2012, 11:29 PM
Yeah Flynn wasn't great, but part of it was not being on the same page as TO. Which may not have been Flynns fault.

shen
08-18-2012, 11:32 PM
I don't think TO makes it to week 1, he gonna be cut before then. 5 targets not a single catch, and at least 3 of them are all on him. His hands have def declined even further, exponentially further then last he was in a NFL uni.

shen
08-18-2012, 11:33 PM
Also saw a couple huddles where he was standing a little away and looking everywhere but the huddle.

Baller1
08-18-2012, 11:42 PM
What a play by Wilson.

shen
08-18-2012, 11:42 PM
Under same number of attempts Wilson has 1 more completion and 40 more yards. Though Flynn is not totally to blame, if he had not kept trying to get TO a completion his numbers would be better.

jej
08-18-2012, 11:43 PM
That's a definate possibility.

08-19-2012, 12:02 AM

I missed the whole game because of an MLS game tonight. My uncle said Wilson looked incredible.

NateyB24
08-19-2012, 12:33 AM
I know it was 2nd and 3rd stringers but Wilson's arm is so incredible he can fit balls in tight windows very accurately.

I don't know man i mean T.O did drop that pass but he did get past the starting secondary i couldn't believe he got that much separation just gotta finish the play and not drop the ball.

1 play he got seperation the DB was reading the QB who was not on the same page as TO... i dont see him getting seperation vs #1s today, not after what he showed tonight and the fact hes almost 39, and hes not going to play ST....

Speed means 0 if he CAN'T CATCH THE BALL. He has terrible hands and is a huge liability.

You can point to that 1 play where he dropped the pass and the come back earlier in the game but other then that you could blame either or in my opinion Flynn wasn't exactly accurate out there.

If Owens makes the team get used to drop balls he does that a lot he usually came back and made up for those though.

Coach has a tough decision to make on Monday regarding QB's. I thought Flynn deserved the start this week, but Wilson looked great again. Like the announcers said tonight, who ever he choses for game 3 is essentialy the QB the coach thinks will start the season. I don't think there is much chance for T-Jack.

Seahawks will intensify talks on Tarvaris Jackson trade this week. Green Bay a possibility. Won't be seeking big compensation and ...

What reason would T-Jack have for helping out the hawks by restructuring his contract?

If he is cut he can go to any team he wants. I don't think any team looking at T-Jack would want him at $4million.

Flynn was awful, was no were near his target and poor decision making. I think he held the ball to long. I think Owens just needs to get on the same page, he wasn't to blame for most of the miscues.

How do you know he wasn't to blame for the miscues? Those 2 were not in sink at all except for the one play when TO dropped the ball. Flynn was 6-8 when throwing to other recievers.

Flynn would have been great today if he and TO were on the same page. TO's first game. Give it time. Wilson was a beast today, but again against 2nd teamers. Not tyring to take away from what he did, just saying. Flynn is going to start so we need to accept that and embrace him. I think he will do great.

You are a idiot. Flynn was trying to get in sync with TO. TO dropped a TD pas that was gift wrapped. Flynn is going to start and if TO makes the team it is because he got on que with Flynn. Next week will tell the story. This was TO's first game. Flynn has started 2 games , and TO hasnt played since 2010. It is what it is.

shen
08-19-2012, 01:22 AM
Sorry but 1st or 2nd stringers does not matter when you watch Wilson. He is calm and has complete control of the 10 other Seahawks on the field. He is a general, Flynn is a manager. I truly believe Wilson does just as good with 1st string. Remember he is also working with 2nd and 3rd string players. Give Flynn 20 plays with first team and Wilson same exact plays and I believe Wilson does better.

again Wilson has worked with those guys. Flynn's only downfall was TO and he has been here a week. TO makes his plays today and Flynn has a huge game. Flynn was probably over targeting TO too cause he was probably told too. This is a audition for TO so he may have been told to look his way to see if there was any chemistry. Not hating on either QB, just saying we should embrace Flynn cause this season is on his shoulders in my opinion. Wilson may be our future, and I like what I have seen, but both QB's have looked good and Flynn is getting paid to start.

1st and 2nd string does matter. You also have to remember that the hawks have great depth. I would say there 2nd unit is one of the best in the NFL. Another thing to consider is that Carroll is the master of half time adjustments.

All that said i really want to see Wilson given his shot with the 1st stringers. I kind of wish there were 3 more pre-season games. Maybe Coach does not do the conventional 2 series and out for 1st unit on the final pre-season game?

Flynn is getting paid to compete. Beyond that it's best man for the job.

Mojo76
08-19-2012, 01:34 AM
Flynn threw the ball way behind Owens, granted that was probably Owens fault as much as Flynn, he still looked horrible. Held the ball to long is one of the biggest problems. I hope he turns it around. I would love to see what Wilson can do with the first team also

i missed the TO drop but watching the replay that was set up by play action, TO won on the route and flynn made a beautiful pass on what shoulda been a game changing play... id grade TO a D, and flynn a C and think thats generous.....

wilson may benefit going against backups but playing with backups failed him on a couple plays.... dont get a fair assessment til he goes against 1s but his body language and command looks better than flynn as well.

shen
08-19-2012, 01:51 AM
Can u see Flynn leading a 80 yard under 2 minutes 1 timeout drive to win? nope. He does not have physical or mental tools. Wilson looks like could do it every week if asked.

NateyB24
08-19-2012, 02:00 AM
I was listening on the radio and they made a good point Flynn needs to get rid of the ball quicker instead of trying to get on his 3rd progression which was causing the Offensive Line to start holding.

Besides T.O i think Braylon Edwards was disappointing as well he couldn't put up big numbers against backup's in the secondary while playing with Wilson.

shen
08-19-2012, 02:04 AM
Edwards can jump higher and as better hands, far better then speed. Keep Edwards, cut TO.

Doesn't it worry you though that Edwards struggled against the 2nd/3rd stringers though? He was silent all game.

shen
08-19-2012, 02:40 AM
Seemed more like coaches wanted other people involved more then he was doing poorly. Seems both Flynn and Wilson where told to look for certain WR's first and more then others. Edwards seems to have already taken to a mentor and vet role with rest the roster, both on offense and defense side the ball. Players on both side seem to seek him out and try to pick his brain and work with him.

08-19-2012, 01:37 PM
Keep both imo. 1.Rice 2. TO 3. Baldwin 4. Edwards 5. Tate 6. Obomanu (Lockette, Durham, Kearse Practice Squad) Rice and Edwards are injury prone. Might as well keep both for insurance.

ccg34
08-19-2012, 01:55 PM
I will be upset if Flynn gets the next start.What kind of 3 way competition would Pete be running? T Jack gets no chance to prove himself. Wilson outplayed Flynn two straight starts. It is unfair. Pete should have just named Flynn starter and should have got him as much reps as possible. No need to screw over T Jack. He ain't the greatest player but he was a trooper last year. He earned more respect. No need to mess with Russell Wilson's mind.

Caribou Lou
08-19-2012, 02:10 PM
T Jack is entering his 7th year in the league and has 34 regular season starts under his belt; he's already proven what he can do. As for Wilson and Flynn, I do think Wilson should get the start next week in order to gage how well he does vs. a #1 defense. As someone mentioned earlier the seahawks have one of (if not the best imo) second/third teams in the league.

How well he does in that game probably/hopefully determines the starter for week 1.

I'd like Wilson to start a game, too. But in Flynn's defense, he hasn't had a complete 1st team WR corp to play with. I like that coach is continuing to build the rookie's confidence while he destroys the opponent's 2nd and 3rd team defense. In any case, I completely trust Coach Carroll in whatever choice he makes.

What impresses me about our team is in New York, you have players tweeting about who they think should start. And the Seahawks players are patiently waiting for the coaches to decide. Discipline and trust earned.

And our team appears to be super deep. I don't want to cut anyone. :D

I agree with your assessment of T Jack, but I don't think he was given a fair shot to compete with Flynn and Wilson. He gained some respect from me. He at least deserved a shot to show that he improved. He didn't even get a chance to play any this preseason. I think this competition was fixed from the get go. Flynn will be our starter come week 1. I hope I'm wrong though. I'm pulling for Wilson.

shen
08-19-2012, 03:01 PM
T Jack has been distant 3rd in training camp from everything I hear, Coaches know we have 2 better QB's so why would they wast time putting in Jackson? They knew before the first preseason game they were going to trade him.

Wilson also seems to be more of a leader in my opinion when he missed Edwards on that throw in the end zone he went over and talked to him.

Just the way Wilson leads the huddle it feels like a huge difference to Flynn who just seemed kind of uninterested.

I think TO would be the 4th guy if he were to make the team. I also don't expect Obo to make the team. He is of better use to a team as their 4-5 rather than our 6. Rather have an upside guy like Lockette or Butler in the 6th spot. There is a good chance they would get picked from our practice squad too.

Butler seems to be clicking with Flynn. I don't see T.O. making the team unless someone goes down with an injury.

Anyone thought Trufant didn't look good as our nickel corner? I thought he gave away easy completions to Stokely. Too bad because I really like Tru.

Jeremy Lane could steal that job if he isn't careful. I think Thurmond could return and possibly vy for the spot as well.

Apparently Roy Lewis is good there. I like Phillip Adams too. I think Tru will be alright. He doesn't have experience there. He has lost a step, but I think he will be ok.

I do like Lewis. I don't think Adam will make the team though. The NB has to have speed and VERY fluid hips. Trufant will need to stay healthy this year. With Thurmond out, I see us having 5-6 CBs.

1. Browner
2. Sherman
3. Trufant
4. Lane
5. Lewis
6. Maxwell

Lewis and Maxwell are great ST guys

I wouldn't of minded Tannehill he has all the physical traits you want in a QB i was kind of in the middle with Cousins he reminds me a lot of Kevin Kolb you put pressure on him and he panics.

Can u see Flynn leading a 80 yard under 2 minutes 1 timeout drive to win? nope. He does not have physical or mental tools. Wilson looks like could do it every week if asked.

Today? No. By the time the season starts? Yes. I want to see Wilson start a game too. See what he does with the first unit, against first stringers. Could be a eye opener for Pete. or a way to shut the Flynn haters up. A lot of different play calling for the QB's too. I would like to see Flynn against second stringers with a kinda more relaxed play calling and doing different things. Lynch also hardly played so Leon Washington was the RB for Flynn and the run game wasnt all that strong in the 1st half. Turbin had some nice runs in the 2nd half.

I don't see how Wilson having a bad performance is going to shut the Flynn doubters up i wouldn't call them haters because he has had a pretty mediocre performance.

Basically what i am saying is if Flynn is bad he is going to hear about it no matter what just like Jackson did doesn't matter who the backup is or what he does.

Jaye Howard and Scruggs had some good games. The d line depth is insane right now. Howard gets off the snap super quick and still has enough power and size to hold his ground. Scruggs looks like a legit edge rusher.

Butler has been better than all of the players you have mentioned, minus Rice and Baldwin ( injuries). People talk a lot about the QB situation, but WR is looking like a major concern for this team. Baldwin will be fine, but if Rice can not stay healthy, Seahawks could be in trouble.

I've seen tons of posts on several forums talking about Flynn this and TO that. I've watched the replay 4 times now focusing on the Flynn to TO passes, in slow motion over and over. I will detail what I saw.

1. The first attempt looked like Flynn thought TO was going to break his route and do a 10 yrd hitch or comeback. TO was still in a full stride pushing the corner and the ball landed 1 yard behind TO. Obiviously, they were not on the same page, only they know who was right or wrong.

2. The second pass was a 10 yard-in, crossing route. I watched this route several times and TO did his job. He was in the soft spot of the zone with the DB trailing by 2 steps. He had created seperation on the break and if the pass would have been on target it would have been a completion. Instead, Flynn threw it 2 yards behind him and it was almost intercepted. In my opinion this was just a bad throw by Flynn.

3. Third throw was a longer throw to the corner of the endzone. Flynn put this way short and To appeared to be double covered with a third DB in the area as well. I've heard many say that this should have been a comeback, I disagree. TO had 2 steps on all DB's and a comeback would have brought him right back to them. You only do a comeback when the DB is playing over the top thus creating seperation coming back to the ball, never when the DB is trailing. This could have been miscommunication but it looked like a bad read on Flynn's part to me.

4. This throw was a slant by TO, he made a good initial move and was open for about 4 steps before the Bailey reacted and was then on his hip. I have seen where many say it was a perfect pass that a good defensive play was made. I've watched this play several times and though it was a good pass, it was a poorly timed pass. The window was 3 steps sooner. Flynn had time and was looking at the route. He just threw the ball late. It was on target but he let the DB recover and knock the ball down. Flynn's fault on this one as well.

5. Last throw that we all know was pretty much picture perfect by both players right up until the point where it hit TO's hands and went through his arms. Obviously, TO's fault.

So say what you will I can only see really one time when TO just plain messed up. The majority were either bad throws by Flynn or the 2 just weren't on the same page. A bad read by the QB or the WR regarding what the defense is giving them.

What I personally saw was a 38 soon to be 39 year old guy who consistently got behind 20 somethings and ran some decent routes. He drew many double teams which will be good with our athletic TE's and for the Baldwin in the Slot.

I think just based on what I have seen our WR's will look like this.

Rice/ TO at Flanker, with TO playing Split End some times, but insurance for Rice
Edwards/ Tate at Split End. I thought Lockette would win this but he has shown nothing
Baldwin/ Butler at Slot. Tate will move around and play some Flanker and Slot as well.

This group gives the coaches a well rounded receiving core with several who can play multiple positions and bring diffrent things to diffrent packages. I really though Lockette would be there but so far I don't even think he's caught a pass in preseason. I could be wrong but nothing comes to mind.

I think Lockette and Martin or possibly Kearse make the PS. Martin has to me shown that he is worthy and Kearse had a couple good plays. Durham has done nothing to make me think he is worth keeping. He's tall and that's it.

I think Obo is gone. I've seen several other people playing ST, and I really don't see them keeping him just because of that role.

NateyB24
08-20-2012, 11:25 AM
^Yea, The only one i can really blame on T.O is the ball that hit him in the hands.

I thought we might keep Obo but it wouldn't surprise me if Schneider looks into trading either Butler or Obo to somebody for a draft pick.

Find it kind of odd that they aren't playing Obo unless i am missing plays which might mean they are doing the same thing they are doing with T-Jack.

Keep Obo from playing so he doesn't get hurt and have his money guaranteed from a injury.

I agree with the white and blue for away games. Blue on Blue home is not doing it for me. Maybe to much Neon, not sure. Blue with white pants or Blue with grey pants would be better.
