  • No shame for a safety to get beat by the best Tight End in NFL history. I would say tha Kam quietly performed at a lower level than last year, but he still had a solid season. But it will be interesting to see if they can resign him. If he makes it to FA I bet someone would overpay

  • Screw everyone that wants to make Kam the new ".net whipping boy". If you think this you are a moron who deserves public shame and ridicule.

  • The Johnny come lately ruthlessness of this board is startling. Irvin and his rookie leading 8.5 sacks? Bust! Cut him! Kam as one of the top five safeties in the conference while play with a severe injury? cut him! Our leading receiver Sydney Rice? cut him too! Our defensive captian and best run defender who fought through injury as well? cut him!

    We need to be adding complimentary pieces to our core players, not cutting our core players.

    Ya, I'm with you.

    I don't get where this attitude is coming from. Did Kam's performance take a slight dip from the previous season? Yeah, maybe. Did Kam play through a severe foot injury? Yes. Why does there always have to be a whipping boy? No team is full of All-Pro players. This team, especially the secondary was lights out. I'd hate to see the numbers if Kam was not in the secondary. Be careful what you wish for people. If Kam "gets replaced" it's not going to be by someone of his caliber.

  • Kams a Keeper, come on fella's. How many passes over the top were we beat for this season? .. he could tighten up on his coverage IMO, but he's definitely an asset back there, and he is extremely solid against the run...

  • Don't forget we drafted another large and physical SS in Winston Guy, who by all accounts tore it up in the preseason, and was better in coverage in college than Kam was. Hell, there were rumors of Kam going to OLB because Guy was playing so well at one stretch.

    Kam has seen what's happened with this team. They are always drafting a guy to try to take your job; you're very rarely going to be comfortable here. Guy will get better and provide solid depth, while pushing Kam to get better. You have to realize, even after that hit to Davis in the SF game, Kam pulled up a few more times when he could've blown someone up. No one likes getting flagged for 15 yard penalties, and it also usually means that Goodell is going to get into your pocket after the game. It's hard to light someone up every time with those thoughts in the back of your mind.

    And that's cool if Guy can rise up and take the starting SS position because he's better, but we're not in a position of needing to replace Kam because he's bad. Kam is a great player and had a pretty good year last year.

    Having an abundance of talented football players is never a bad thing. If Guy takes over at SS and Kam is able to fill a big need for us at Will, then that is a wonderful (and maybe even possible) thing. Not something that requires a whipping boy.

    Happens when you're popular I guess. Bandwagoners are in it for the instant gratification, and when the gratification isn't instant; they go looking to assign blame. But if that's the downside of success, I can deal with it. I earned my stripes.

    I just read every comment on this thread, and the ONLY guy who said to cut Kam was being sarcastic. So pump the brakes Cpt. Overreaction.

    Good lord some of you guys are tender titties. Any negative comment on here is met with a wolf pack mentality of defensiveness, like it's a personal attack on your family.

    This is a forum, full of people with their very own opinions. It's OK to disagree, that's what makes conversations interesting.

    Agree totally with the above. As well the tone of the conversations here seem as well to be descending into screw you type conversations instead of discussion. It is possible to disagree with another person's view without being nasty about it even if that others viewpoint may be off the wall or something you personally feel is ridiculously wrong. Let's try not to personalize the remarks and to comment on the post and not the poster.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken. The OLine still needs work.

    Read McGruff's quote. He's talking about the board not the thread.

    And he is right. There is a lot of chatter on this board about people thinking Irvin will never be an everydown player (Um...Rookie?), that Red is a liability (injury), that Kam can't cover (Injury and 1 year removed from Pro-Bowl), and that Browner should be moved to SS (Because we're going to get Revis and Kam is a Liability). Is that the general feeling of the ENTIRE board? Of course not. But those are the kind of threads that are being started this time of year, and it's hard to have a conversation with positive threads that don't exist.

    Opposing opinions are absolutely allowed. You said, "Any negative comment on here is met with a wolf pack mentality of defensiveness, like it's a personal attack on your family."
    I know you have seen what this board is like after a loss. It goes both ways. God forbid a poster like me has something positive to say after that because i'm supposed to let other posters "vent".

    I've read all the threads, again no one said cut anybody.......except the sarcastic dude who said it as a joke or troll.......or both. People have asked the question about individual players if they were worth the draft pick? Or worth the money they're being paid? Or worthy of a starting position? Or what's wrong with certain players cause their productivity dropped off? But no cut talk warranting a full on forum freak out.

    I love the passion, but it's annoying when posters exaggerate what others are saying so they can get up on their soapbox and use lots of bold and exclamation points.........like their the lone protector of everything Seahawk.

    The only rumors were those spread by stupid fanboys. I saw enough of Guy in the Falcons game to know he isn't half the player Kam is, either in coverage or sending the run.

    +1. I follow his Twitter feed and I'm not liking his approach to the post season either. Winston Guy that is.

    Yet these posts are just as dumb. Nobody said to cut him and you know it, but you can't make your point without sensationalising it to hell.

  • Also keep in mind that everyone adjusts and gameplans and schemes against every other player. That's why you usually see a dropoff in production year 2 because adjustments have been made and tendencies have been notated.

    jkitsune wrote:People are way too reactionary to year-to-year fluctuation in a player's performance. Kam is only in his 2nd year of starting, was incredible last year, and merely good this year. He was injured, sure, but didn't play at as high of a level in general. Naturally, you tend to over-react to the most recent set of data and assume that it's going to be the trend going forward.

    Over both years, Kam has shown that he is a very good player, with good athleticism, excellent hitting ability, and decent coverage skills. He probably won't be a perennial Pro Bowler, IMO, but I suspect he'll make a couple more before his time is done, and that you'll feel silly looking back on this post, for having been so concerned after his second year was only "good" instead of "incredible."

    Kam has also done a great job covering TEs and RBs this year, and I can only recall one game where that wasn't true, and that was our last one. Another instance of remembering the most recent information more clearly - we forget that other great receiving TEs and RBs were essentially non-factors against us this year.

    I'm not worried about the guy at all.
