It was always going to end badly.
Mon Sep 17, 2018 7:05 pm
  • The end of Pete's time at USC and the end of his time here in Seattle are strikingly similar. Everything was going well for Pete when it was really going well. After a heartbreaking loss in the Rosebowl, the USC team bottomed out not as fast at the NCAA level because the turnover rate is much higher. After 49 the team was never the same and has finally bottomed out. I trust that Paul Allen will find the next coach to lead this team into the next decade.

    Paul Allen has rebuilt this team twice. He hired two different coach/GM combinations to get the team to three Super Bowls since 2005.

    February 2006 the first Seahawks played in a Superbowl.

    February 2014 a second Seahwaks team that was completely rebuilt won the teams first Superbowl. I trust Paul will do what needs to be done.

  • I thought this thread title was about Russ, because I figured the downside to a guy like him is once he loses his speed, he's not going to be that great anymore. He has lost some speed, so he's not as dangeRuss anymore.

    I agree on Pete though. He had a good run, but he peaked a while ago.

    That was always my fear with Russ. Steve Young was similar but he was 6' 3" so he was able to become a pure pocket guy. Russ is too short to play as a slow pocket QB. He will go to the CFL and do awesome things.

    Wrong. I walked right past Steve Young on the way into a Rattlers game and he's the same height or shorter than me. 6'1"

  • This is the realist post here tonight (beside the pilot joke). Pete's post-Rose Bowl teams were completely hot/cold and headscratchingly inconsistent.
