    Well if you were rebuilding the World Trade Center or the Alaska Pipeline and told your boss you’d be done in one year, you’d probably get the same reaction as if you told an NFL GM you were going to rebuild his team in one year…

    Odds are they get a nice chuckle and you don’t get the job…

    By the way, now that you’ve moved from GF where are we going to have that beer at???

  • Screw four years,
    this Defense is ready now
    this special teams is ready now
    if you want "we don't need touchdowns just don't turn it over" offense bring in #15
    but Wilson is better than that if you take the reigns off.
    We are the 2014 Superbowl champions and it can never, ever be taken away.
    Greatest defense in NFL history.

  • Bump....from 2012. Wilson's rookie year. The Seahawks 2-2. Fans freaking out because Flynn isn't playing.

  • Kearly, this isn't fair. You gave your thoughts and they were fair. You just didn't count on our boy to actually get it in year four. Enjoy it you deserve it. Ignore the haters because I do.

    I did skim. So what's up? I mean I knew he was HoF from the start like Tyler Lockett given I actually watched both in person. So please inform me given I'm not a football guru.

    Being a Seahawks fan right now is eerily similar to being a Pittsburgh fan in the 1970's. Just ask my brothers. Big time drafts and more coming.

  • Definitely fun reading through this thread from 35k feet high on my way to Minnesota. Really entertaining and how different we all think. I was very excited for picking up Russ. I became his fan from the preseason game we played against Kansas City on the road. I was thinking finally we have someone who can throw the ball and on target with an awesome arm. Then games like against GB Pattiots the Hail Mary, the throw to Siney Rice, those were the ones that made me a solid believer in Russ. Lucky to have him, lucky to be a Seahawks fan.

    I'm not quite sure what the question is here, but Scott's always been a great poster, and him keeping a level head and addressing everyone's concerns with great points and opinions was a perfect example.

    I got you. I thought it was directed to me. Scottemojo is among the best and level headed. That's why I told you I did in fact skim. I wasn't totally sure your post was directed at me so I felt I needed to explain my position a bit.

  • This thread shows it's a good thing we are not the ones in charge of the team. Even though some arguments for Flynn made sense it still would have meant we wouldn't have won a Superbowl and would probably have been pretty mediocre right now.

    I wonder what 2016 thread will be revived in 2020 that sounds absolutely crazy then.

  • Patience is the most difficult thing is sports.

    And I am not any kind of expert. But thanks for the nice words.

    I will share what my thought were, and why.

    I disliked Flynn as our QB intensely, even the day after his huge game for GB I said some stupid team is going to pay that guy a lot of money. I watched his Detroit game over and over and despite the numbers, saw a couple of bad habits, and posted such, and got a bit roasted by some for it. Conversely, through preseason, Russ showed a quick release and could make plays without being in the gun. After the opening loss to the Cards, I was higher than ever about the future. I was 6 rows back in the endzone where we could not score a TD to win that game, and saw Russ put an outgunned offense in position to win, then saw him give players chances to catch tds that they could not quite catch. We lost, but the tools were plain.



    I now subscribe to the idea that while Flynn was brought in to compete, he also served a perfect smokescreen to pick Russell. I also gained a ton of respect for Pete, who endured a lot of second guessing for sticking with Russ the first half of that season.

    Anyone remember the miserable look on Flynn's face during a postgame celebration? IIRC, he got the game ball for being in victory formation or something like that. Everyone else is happy, and he looks like a bird shit on his lip. Pete has mastered the art of subtley being a a dick to guys who don't really buy in, and that was one of those moments. I knew Flynn was gone after the year right then.

  • Flynn's game against Detroit was the six most overrated touchdowns in NFL history.

    I don't remember that, but I do remember Flynn's face on the sideline at KC in the preseason. Dude knew he was totally screwed.
