#3 is gonna be a fixture on this team for 12+ years.

    If that's the case, it was stupid since it cost pretty much everyone their jobs.

    Considering that teams that perform poorly enough to end up picking #1 tend to end up changing coaches, I don't see how someone comes up with this "gut feeling." Like Caldwell and Co. were thinking, "Hey, we're already a pretty criticized coaching staff... why not tank the season to see if we can get the #1 pick for whoever takes over once we're fired?"

  • I was one of the people who was not impressed with Wilson in the last few weeks, but I have to say after watching yesterday he was amazing, nearly perfect on every single throw and decision. very impressive

  • Yep, I'm so relieved that he has progressed as quickly as he has. When he went down clutching his knee yesterday I was thinking Oh no! Not when he's finally found his groove.
    Richard Sherman doesn't just wanna get in your head, he wants to build a vacation home there.

  • I've been a believer since the preseason and at this point I say: I never want to see Russell Wilson in a jersey other than a Seahawks jersey. If Rice can stay healthy and be his Marvin Harrison, let's get this kid a Reggie Wayne and watch them all destroy this league for years to come!!!
