  • Mark my word. Write it down. This is not happening.

    Most of these "experts" don't realize that we are not spending that much money at our QB position.

  • That seems kind of reactionary. I think Sidney will be gone eventually, but I would expect him to be here next year. Unless they need to free up money for another big time FA(defense)

  • Hmm. Makes sense from the cap number and one had to figure Rice and Miller's numbers were pretty substantial, such that they would be needing to adjust or leave next season. This season seems a bit pre-mature until they know that Tate can put back to back solid seasons up.

  • Absolutely ridiculous. The only reason Rice's stats are lower is that we were breaking in a rookie QB and we like to move the ball around to other pieces of the offense.

    If we targeted Sidney 10-12 times a game, he'd be a 1000 yard, 10 TD guy easily.

    Stupid.

  • yeah well this guy can go screw himself. Rice isn't going anywhere and if you think have Vanilla the offense was the first half of the season you can see why. PLUS RW likes to spread the ball around. It was Rice's first year playing fully healthy with a ROOKIE QUARTERBACK.

    Sadly, I do. He's getting paid a lot of money for middling production. He's good for stretching the field but his play style makes him an injury risk (he falls down hard after almost every catch), and Golden Tate is establishing himself as the bigger threat. Much as I'd love to see Harvin, Rice, and Golden on the field together, it seems likely that Rice is the odd man out.

    Except we're not in a salary cup crunch (especially if we move flynn), so there's no reason to do it. Maybe in a year or two, but not now.

  • You can't justify the Harvin trade if they cut Rice, which means that guy has no idea what he's talking about. That would mean Seattle essentially gave up a 1st, 7th, 2014 mid-round pick, Leon Washington and Sidney Rice to acquire Percy Harvin. They can't possibly be that stupid.

  • Like Missing_Clink said, it's hard to speculate cap ramifications without knowing how much we're paying Harvin, and how it's structured.

    I can see us needing to restructure Rice or Miller after next year, but we don't have a ton of FA needing to be signed, lots of our draft picks probably won't make the team, and we're saving a TON of money at certain positions, as has also been mentioned.

    If we're paying Harvin what he wants though, then yeah, it's logical speculation. That's just too much money tied up in Harvin, Rice, and Miller.

  • Remember - cap now rolls over so cutting Rice today gives us room under the salary cap NEXT YEAR

    I still don't think it happens and agree with DavidSeven then we gave up a first, fourth, seven and Rice for Harvin. There is trade value in Rice (I think :) )

  • I think that Sidney may be asked to restructure his deal but even if he says no, he may be able to survive for this season w/o facing the possibility of being cut.
    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.

    Beat me to it. Florio's a schmuck. What he doesn't seem to care about is they have cap room THIS year. Rice and Miller's deals are much more cap friendly this year. If we're going all in to win now, it would be ridiculous to cut Rice. Look at his numbers with harvin and favre in minnesota.

  • Having 2 small starting receivers would be against the Carroll philosophy on offense. We have no big guy to take Rice's place if released, if he was you'd have to figure they already have another big guy targeted somewhere.

    Here's the quote:

    PC: One of our put out transcripts and I was raving about trying to stop him. He gets the ball so many ways and he is such a dangerous runner after the catch. They got it to him in a multitude of ways and one of the great things is that Bevell coached him into the league and respects the hell out of him. We're going to fit him and we have a really nice group with Sidney Rice, Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin. He does have some qualities - he carries the ball out of the backfield like a tailback and

    I guess it doesn't matter how many times it is said as people don't seem to get the concept. THE CAP SPACE ROLLS OVER TO NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!!!

    that would be what we need the money for.

    With that said - PC stated today what we all think. Rice isn't going anywhere but this doesn't change the fact that every dollar saved today is available tomorrow

    Yep, he was so incensed about the "Fail Mary" that was all he talked about last season, to the point where he's got a post all about "The Impact of the Fail Mary" less than two hours after our 42-13 beatdown of the Niners.

    His latest agenda is pushing for the Redskins to change their team name.

  • If we release Rice, who would be one of our few big receivers that produces, then this trade starts to veer in the the stupid/foolish category.

    I don't want this to be like the Vin Baker trade where we get some guy that we feel is a star with just a few problems, but that the cost of keeping means gutting a few players - players that turn out to be important. Any Seattle fans of any sport are probably conditioned to listen for the sound of the other shoe dropping...so maybe this is that.

    But getting rid of Rice so that we can have a squadron of 4ft tall receivers does not sound wise.

    I am already bothered we lost Leon, this would just grind it in.

  • People talking about cuts in reaction to the Harvin trade don't take into account that trading Flynn and installing a decent backup QB at a backup's salary gives the Hawks a lot of bang for very few bucks at QB...

    Makes sense to use a little of the cap space freed up by the QB bargain to give RW the best receiver corps they can get.
