A letter to my younger self

  • Do yourself a favor and go to Twitter to read Baldwin’s letter to a younger self, very well done. I’d try and link from here but it’s multiple posts .

    Doug is a good man.

  • That there my friends is the thoughts and writing of a true blue caring person. Will be wearing my Baldwin jersey with pride (along with Kam's and Marshawn's), unlike others who have left for one reason or another with spite in their mouths.

  • As a GOT fan, my favorite tweet from that bunch was this one:



    Totally bittersweet - but what a great way to sign off.......

    I hope he is able to find a home within the organization, but we'll see.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up in politics someday.

  • I like Doug. I appreciate everything he's done as a Seahawk, and I have no issues with him expressing himself as an individual while retiring in a way unique to him. This stuff never resonates with me.

    He's 30 years old. He's made millions of dollars. He claims praise from fans is good for the ego bad for character, yet he retires in a way that seeks to extol virtue from his fans. Good for him.

  • Doug's such a competitor.
    Now that he is a free agent he will likely going to heal up and keep himself in shape. Watch for midseason WR injuries, joining contenders or possibly reuniting with Luck. Like Sherm, I doubt Baldwin comes back.to Seattle on a discount.

  • Nope, he's done. And that's ok, it's on his terms.

  • No one does a gif of him crapping in an end zone celebration on ultimate prime time. For me, that was his signature moment.

    Good play trumps all and he did a geat job of moving on.

  • I was listening to 710’s morning show podcast for the day after it was announced that Kam and Doug had been cut. They had a good set of clips from throughout Doug’s career that really showed how he’s grown and matured from ADB to a very thoughtful man and leader. Yes, the episode with the ball in the Super Bowl was dumb. That doesn’t define him. He’s a very good man.

  • Dang I didn't know Doug was from Gulf Breeze. My father was stationed there when I was 5. A tornado hit our apartments in the early morning hours. We got out with little but our lives. Gulf Breeze and Pensacola took care of us though.
