  • I have always though Joey Galloway sorta flashed, then after the whole contract dispute thing he simply played angry. The poster child for "I want more money...dammit" I really wanted him to just keep doing a few more of those 1000-yard receiving seasons before griping about his paycheck.

    His departure did yield us both Shaun Alexander AND Koren Robinson though....

  • Rick Mirer popped in my head first. I remember on draft day being stoked we didn't get stuck with Bledsoe.

  • Another vote for Chris McIntosh. Thought our right tackle was set for a decade, then a freak neck injury ended his career.

    Tubbs too. Dominant but too often injured.

    So many great players already listed, but Ruskell's my vote too. Sure, he wasn't a player, but he's my "Flash in the Pan" because he was directly responsible for a lot of Seahawks flash in the pan players (and years, for that matter). Remember how high so many people were on him? Remember all the early love for his "high motor/high character" picks? Remember "In Ruskell We Trust?"

    What retrospect we have now!

    I agree.

    Remember that game in Denver when Turner caught the long bomb first play of the game? I think it was even the first game of the season, not sure.

    Turner was so fast we all thought he'd be a cornerstone deep threat for 10 years. But the dude just couldn't run routes or lose his penchant for drops.

    Sad thing is the Hawks are still looking for a deep threat receiver 25 years later.

    How does a guy like DT do the things he did and then just disappear? He still holds a few Seahawks and NFL records. :34853_doh:

  • Lawrence Jackson, oh wait you have to get more than 2 sacks and 29 tackles in a season before you become a flash in the pan.

    L. Jackson would be one of the biggest Seahawks busts then..

    Good one, I had totally forgotten about him. He did well in Green Bay for a while too though, didn't he?

  • Those are all good names guys. But again, I'm sorry but given all of what he was supposed to be ... and all that he ultimately wasn't, there is no Seahawk who will ever top the Boz as far as Flash in the Pan is concerned. Most definitely he's the biggest of all time ...

    To be a flash in the pan, you have to have been good at one point.

    That was one of Holmy's F-ups. I believe it was a pre-season game played in Vancouver that Green put the ball on the carpet. To make an example of what happens to (awesome) RBs that fumble, Holmy let him go and that was just dumb as hell. I remember how he ran thru our awesome Dawg defense like a hot knife thru butter. When we drafted him I knew we had our RBOTF. Instead, he crushed it for the enemy.

  • Michael Boulware for sure. Although, with Pete as his coach, I think he'd be damn good. He was miscast in a scheme that played two deep safeties on almost every play. In the box, playing short zones far more often, his strengths would be amplified and his weaknesses minimized. He might have been as good as Kam, he was a better athlete and had great ball skills to boot. Not as hard a hitter (funny that we're saying that about a former LB) but not bad in his own right.

    Sean Locklear. He was so good in 2005, and below average every year after that. Can't believe we started him as long as we did.

  • Dan McGwire.

    I was going on 20 years old at the time, and was POSITIVE he would be the QBOTF. Plus he looked awesome at 6'8" with the dark visor. Out of the league a few years later, he'll be remembered as the guy who couldn't beat Stan Gelbaugh or Kelly Stouffer for a chance to start.

    Made irrelevant by the above mentioned Rick Mirer.
