EDIT: And one backup safety? What is even going on?

We gotta be picking a TE up OR the fact that Spencer Ware and Derrick Coleman both made the team absorbed the additional spot.

Trading for D'Anthony Smith leaves us:
Mebane
Daniels
Hill
Smith

Hill will sit out as an inactive for those games. Game days only suit up 46 players.

Surprised they cut McGrath? I guess someone else will be coming in. Have to think one of the linebackers will be cut by Monday to make room.

Also think Ware is a candidate for being cut if they bring in other players.

NateyB24
08-31-2013, 09:26 PM
Mcgrath was good but he didn't have anything to seperate himself really Zach Miller is an all around TE and Luke Willson provides a strength receiving hopefully he improves his blocking though.

I don't see them cutting Ware after cutting Robinson.

I think this whole FB thing is a smoke screen. The FB market is dead so there won't be a ton of interest in him. I think this illness is bad especially if it's MRSA. Rob loves it here and we love him. This is almost like our PUP. We maybe cut him and get some work with these guys then once he comes back we sign him back.

I'm not so sure... Treatment is iffy and no real timetable for recovery, PLUS the $2M in rollover for next yr. I believe the educated/calculated thoughts of Coleman/Ware replacing Robinson produced the conclusion of little to no drop off and the team rolled w/ it

MRSA and staph infection are both very similar to my knowledge.

I had staph infection my freshman year of high school. I had a cut on my cheek at a wrestling tournament and it got infected with staph. After a couple of days it spread from a little mat burn in the center of my cheek to a bunch of acne looking stuff all over my cheek. It essentially was eating away at my face.... disgusting. It can be deadly.

Because we got Harvin, and we had Baldwin and Golden. We needed a different type receiver, a big bodied one, physical one. After pre-season that may develop to being Williams if he can add on weight and be more physical.

Harper is a good prospect with a lot of clay to build with, but it speaks volumes that Seattle doesn't have space for any project WR's while SF will basically carry nothing but projects at the position behind Boldin.

Also, guarantee SF would prefer Stephen Williams or Jermaine Kearse who made it impossible to keep Harper on the 53.

Pete referred to Mike Person as a tight end, so I guess that's your third TE. They must have big plans for him in the run game as the 6th lineman and probably backing up Miller.

I do think Harper will end up back on Seattle's practice squad. Apparently the 49ers are trying him at TE. If he is cut, which i think he will be, i doubt he would want to sign with the 49'ers practice squad as a TE.

I do hope we get him back.He has some talent and if he had made that TD catch probably would have made the seahawks. Lets not forget he ran a great route, but blundered on a catch that he would make 99.9% of the time.

To be fair to the 49'ers they are without Crabtree and Manningham for 6 games. It's not like this was their game plan.

Also while i guess Patton could be considered a "project", i think he is going to have a great year. Really wish the Hawks had drafted him.

It's funny because the 49ers are taking all of our scraps and putting them on their 53, while the only player we've claimed from them was a LS that was only used to push Gresham into restructuring his contract.

The only draw-back of having a team with a legit chance of a superbowl is that you go all in. If this is last year he makes the team, even with the Oakland game.

Said it in another post that if he makes that TD catch he makes the team and hawks go with 6 WR to start the season. It was a calculated risk that Carroll took and he almost got away with it. He probably thought that the Oakland game was bad enough for him not to get claimed. He was close, but no cigar.

He didn't separate himself from our WR's even with the advantage of having a different skillset and body. Also, LOL at Hopper making fun of Seattle's depth at WR. Last time I checked you just picked up a WR that didn't get picked up off waivers and made our practice squad.

Kind of interesting that we chose a blocking TE rather than a recieving one if they are going to fill in for Willson. Maybe Person as a TE isn't as serious as we think?

Niners fans want NFL to make 12th Man pipe down
by TRAVIS PITTMAN / KING 5 News / NWCN.com
Posted on September 18, 2013 at 7:04 AM

A couple of San Francisco area residents think Seahawks fans were just a tad too loud in Sunday’s win. They want the NFL to make fans pipe down or lose the rights to home games.

Seahawks fans set a new world record for the loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium, cheering for their team at a whopping 136.6 decibels. The noise disrupted the Niners and helped the Seahawks to a 29-3 win.

In a letter to the editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, Judy Spelman and Rich Schiller said Seahawks fans were “juiced on noise” and they accused the team and fans of “unsportsmanlike conduct." They said the noise “surely creates as big an advantage over an opponent as any performance enhancing drug.”

The pair want the Seahawks to ask fans to quiet down. They also want the NFL to implement a new rule to allow the visiting team to stop a game if the noise surpasses a certain decibel level. If the rule is violated in more than three games, the “offending” team would lose all its home games for the remainder of the season and playoffs.

“At a time when the world seems sour, sports give us a place of joy, community and hope, and to have it spoiled is a bigger loss than it seems on the surface,” writes Spelman and Schiller.

Larger excerpt from the letter.
Was anyone else appalled by the unsportsmanlike conduct of the Seattle Seahawks and their fans, juiced on noise, which surely creates as big an advantage over an opponent as any performance enhancing drug and which, to their shame, NFL officials turn the same blind eye they have to concussions and drugs?

It would be simple to fix. Seahawks players and managers would ask their fans to cease and desist, and the NFL would implement a new rule: The visiting team may stop the game when fan noise is greater than a specified decibel level, and should this rule be violated in more than three games, no home games will be played at the offending field for the rest of the season, including playoff games. Things would quiet down.

At a time when the world seems sour, sports give us a place of joy, community and hope, and to have it spoiled is a bigger loss than it seems on the surface.
Also, a follow up response from another fan.

I couldn't agree more with "Unsportsmanlike conduct in Seattle" (Letters, Sept. 17).

It wasn't a game of skill anymore; it was an exhibition of excessive stadium noise, posturing obscenities in your opponent's face to draw a foul and street-punk behavior to fire up tensions to gain any advantage to get the win.

I hope the NFL will listen before the fans go deaf. Please stop the excessive stadium noise, and just play football.

Should Oakland forfeit for being too scary? Should the Rams be punished for being too quiet and lame? Get out with this.

A friend just shared that article with me. He--my friend--recently got out of SEALs training and is now rekindling his dream of making it as a professional golfer. When I was a freshman in HS he was a senior on the team. Crazy good. Went onto play for a D2 university and was twice the national D2 player of the year.

Kind of went off on a tangent there, but if anyone would be interested in donating to his fund raiser I can get the link. He is using Rallyme and offering "gifts" based on donation size.

On Topic: Sherm is the man. Just hate to think that we'll likely lose him when having to pick between him Thomas, Wilson and Okung.

Came in to post this though:


How good is Seattle? Scary good is the answer. The Seahawks have faced two pretty good defenses in San Francisco and Carolina as well as Jacksonville. Through those first three games, Seattle is 14.59 percent better designed than its opponents and has won the turnover battle by an average of +2 per game. New England was 9.19 percent better than its regular season opponents and won the turnover battle by an average of +1 per game the year the Patriots went 16-0. In 1972, the unbeaten Super Bowl champion Dolphins were 10.45 percent better designed than their regular season opponents and won the turnover battle by an average of +1.29 per game.

To make space, the Seahawks waived Lotulelei who also showed some potential in preseason.

I'm on the fence on this one.

Seattle4Ever
10-03-2013, 02:13 PM
I don't like it. We don't need a third QB. Getting rid of Lotulelei makes sense with Irvin returning, but he looked great in the preseason. The one thing that would make this make sense is if we released T-Jack and developed Daniels. T-Jack currently makes more than Wilson, so there's that.

I'm not sure we have room to play games like this. We are low on able bodied players as we have a slew of injuries. We don't need a 3rd string QB right now. We have Harvin coming back really soon. Roster spots are precious. We can't move BJ to the practice squad or we might as well put him right back on the 49ers where he was. The only thought of why we might have done this was to move him to the practice squad later in the season in hopes that the 49ers pick him back up and are forced to carry him on the active roster during a critical time.

IMO, I don't think Rice going would be too bad. Players talk, they know what others are being paid and they see production. With the "Always Compete", I think the players know that loyalty is HUGE, but so are contributions.

From my understanding, Mike Rob is still dealing with medical issues and isn't even cleared to play yet. He was on NFL network 2 weeks ago and you could see he's lost mass (muscle). Some times there are tough calls to make. I think the team knows the correct decision was made

Coleman hasn't played great, but he hasn't played bad either. Spencer Ware is still out with a real bad high-ankle sprain, so our options are limited. He is not seeing a significant amount of snaps on the field, so keeping him and building rapport doesn't hurt. He's healthy, hard-working and if we can find a better alternate, we should do our due diligence.

Well we use it even less now with Coleman. At a time when our offensive line is struggling so badly due to experience, injuries, and sometimes flat out lack of talent, we could really use him.

I just think Lynch doesn't seem to trust him on some plays. He uses him like a decoy in the open field.

Carroll said doubting fans need to “do their homework” about the explosive capabilities of his offense.

“I think we’re just concerned with the points not on the board,” Carroll said. “We’re moving the football, doing some good things. Red zone has not been quite as sharp, third down has not been quite as sharp as we will be. I think we’re on the verge of being really good, and fortunately we’re 5-1 here and we’re still improving.”

“At the end of the day,” Wilson added, “the ultimate goal is to win and that’s what we did. The defense made some big turnovers. The offense made some big plays when we needed to. Going into that fourth quarter, it was a close game and we were able to separate ourselves a little bit there and get a touchdown when we needed to.”

+1 for spelling duct tape correctly.

And yeah, I agree. Take away the left tackle, the right tackle, the center, the top TE and the #1 receiver from any QB in the league and see how they do. The fact that Wilson has kept us in games and led us to wins under those circumstances says a whole helluva lot more than his raw stats for this year do.

“Marshawn (Lynch) almost cried when he saw Mike Rob walk in,” practice squad wide receiver Ricardo Lockette said before he, Robinson and Percy Harvin all practiced with the team for the first time in varying degrees of time.

Awww....


It was a business decision, and one that Robinson understood. But it also was rooted in the illness he was battling, which caused his weight to drop from 245 pounds to 212 and put him in the hospital a couple of times..... “They just said it was a perfect storm. I felt like I was just getting the flu. Come to find out it was real bad; liver, kidneys almost failed. It was pretty bad.”

Now I understand why they had to release him. Can't play FB at 212.


“Pete (Carroll, the coach) and John (Schneider, the general manager), they did a great job of communicating with me. They were very upfront when they were cutting me. We were in there talking and they said, ‘Mike, we know it’s going to come a point down the line when you’re going to be healthy and we’re probably going to need you. If the opportunity presents itself, we’re going to come get you. You’re part of the family. You’re part of us. You helped us start this thing.’

“It just felt really good to know an organization feels that strongly about you.”

The Seahawks are a classy organization. MikeRob was part of the team even when he was apart from the team.

http://blogs.seattletimes.com/seahawks/2013/10/22/video-michael-robinson/


Robinson said he wasn’t sure if the RealRobReport will return this year, saying he doesn’t want anything to be a distraction to the team. Said he planned to talk soon to Pete Carroll about it.

The OL concerns are weeks away from remedy. The issue with a ZBS is finding personnel to match the scheme, learn the playbook and then mesh with the other guys... Bowie is learning trial by fire and McQuistan has shown that there is NO replacement for Okung, clearly showing how important a FRANCHISE LT is.

I think so. Even if he can't, his production this year has been > Rice's with less opportunities. I wonder if Lockette gets brought up from the PS, too.

I don't think Tate's inconsistency has to do with his abilities. Not very worried about the height of our WRs, but he's a tad under 5'11.

Kinda surprised with that injury that they didn't push for a move before the deadline (Maybe Britt?). Money at the WR spot is likely tight though and not easy for a guy like Britt to learn a new system, but still. With all the upcoming contracts, it should be win-now mode.

Wonder if they accelerate Harvin's return now. Gonna be tough, b/c the success that Harvin can have in the slot is greatly increased with a big guy like Rice on the outside (and Tate opposite).

Definitely excited to see Kearse get more opportunities though.

...it's likely Seattle will activate Tharold Simon or practice squad CB/S Deshawn Shead.

It also may be an indication that they knew this Thurmond suspension was coming for some time.

I bet you Payton will have Sproles in the slot just to test this and it could be scarey Lane and Maxwell are fantastic on the outside but they tend to give up to much of a cushion for my liking.

Then again Thurmond has barely played for us due to injury and we did a great job of covering for Browner during his suspension.
