    The thought of this kid matched up on a Dez Bryant, Pierre Garcon, Hakeem Nicks/Victor Cruz is scary.

    Man we're in big trouble if Sherman loses this thing and WT3 can't go.

    Kelly Jennings. The Return.

    And there's always Pete Hunter.



    Jennings can never, ever, come back. Ever.

    We have to give Alphonso Smith a try! Why? Because he is the player the Denver drafted in 2009 after we traded our second round pick to them for their 2010 first rounder, which turned into Earl Thomas.

    Complete the cycle of awesomeness: Alphonso Smith comes to Seattle and actually plays really well. It would be a pretty cool story at least.

    Your right, and Aaron Rogers is still Aaron Rogers. It's very clear the offense needs to keep it up. The O line needs to come up big. WT3 needs to get healthy and quick.

    If Clayton is right that'll be huge, and they pull off a W, clinch a playoff spot an get BB back for the playoffs.

    It's not about whining. It's about the league doing this now. It came out in Week 3 and now we are just dealing with it. And forgive us for wanting our ALL PRO players wanting to play, not our backups.

    Lighten up, Nancy. As I pointed out, the Pack kept chugging along with all their vital peices (a bit more all-pros and a DMVP). The Hawks can and will get past it.

    You're right, but I think his point is there is depth on this team, and hopefully enough talent spread through the rest of roster can make up for the loss of Sherm.

  • And playoff games ARE NOT equal to regular season games. If it's a four game suspension regularly and it goes into the playoffs, it should only equate to 1 playoff game just because of the far more dramatic consequences of having guys unavailable during the playoffs (especially when it's your All Pro starting corner). NHL pro-rates suspensions during the playoffs b/c those games are so much more valuable, so why can't the NFL?

    Oh yeah, cuz Goodell is "THE ENFORCER". pfft. What an F'ing joke of a human being.

  • Whining aside, this is a bad time for Sherman to be suspended.

    He will miss the playoffs - unless we make the superbowl. and if we don't we won't have him for the beginning of the 2013 season either.

    If sure hope Sherman can win the appeal... but I doubt it.

    Really sucks. WTIII can't stay healthy for crap. Lets hope Lane is healthy for the game and he and Maxwell can not screw it up too bad.

    Yeah, it's real adorable.

    They can't whine anymore. They used up their yearly allotment after the MNF game. And their offense, which is more pertinent to their type of game is helping alot, and it hasn't been hit hard, it's mostly intact.
    Our defense, however, which is pertinent to our game, is being affected by this. And I will take Sherman's importance much more than Clay's.

    Im not trying to produce the tin foil hat scenario... but the amount of time it took to pull out the suspension notices, and then have sherman appeal for so long, and now the hearing will be just before one of their largest televised national games. Whatever, if we cant win simply because we dont have Sherman, we dont deserve to win, one man does not make a team. Stevie was making him look silly last week anyways.

    I'm sure this is sarcasm, but this mother effer needs to be healthy or suck it up. Hammy's are no joke, but if you want to prove to the FO that drafted you, that you can be dependable this is your shot dude. If not guarantee you'll be seeing guys at your position being drafted.

    It's not just losing Sherm that hurts, it's Sherm, BB and Thurmond. Now your playing a Lane, Maxwell, Parker and Shead from the PS.

    And on Stevie making him look ridiculous. He was getting burnt when he would have to go opposite of his normal side, which I've heard is a totally different technique. Not to make excuses for the guy, but there's a reason they didn't have him shadow receivers before.

  • Am I missing something here? Why would anyone be upset with the appeals process, NFL, or Goodell? Sherman is the one who blew it if he loses his appeal.

    Thats typical of our society though. Everyone wants to blame someone instead of being accountable.

  • Schefter made a comment on the MNF pregame show about it that he's heard Sherman has "a pretty good case" so it's not a forgone conclusion that the suspension is upheld.
