Seahawks Sign Michael Bennett!!! one year 5 MM

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • True enough..I was merely pointing out that he was overlooking the main position Bennett will likely play here and that is DT. He, like Jones, is labeled a DE, but in our scheme will play mostly DT.



    duly noted, but I was agreeing with your point that we could have 3 or more pass rushers playing at once. I like Clem/Bennett/Mebane/Avril and Irvin at OLB and someone like a blitzing Matt Elam on nickel packages.

    Because we need size. Outside of Rice, we have a lot of short dudes. Having a 6-3+ type would be nice.


    Yep, like Mike Williams was in 2010, like Pete hoped Kris Durham would be for us in 2011 and hoped Evan Moore would be for us last year. It's the last piece of the offensive puzzle.

  • The amount of clueless people talking about how we are going to hit "cap hell" or are comparing us the Eagles as "dream team v2.0" is hilarious! I cannot wait to start smashing faces and see them sitting around 2 - 3 years from now saying "wtf wtf wtf??" hahaha

  • Exactly. The best part about all the moves the Seahawks are making is that they're "All In" for 2013 yet still have plenty of chips left for the future.

  • i have heard great things about tampas d-line last year. It was the teams strength by far.


    I was extremely dissapointed with Red Bryant last year, He will never pressure the QB which i would be ok with if he was a run stuffer which he is not. I saw him get hooked to many times last year and teams just run right past him.

    Yeah, I am hoping he will bounce back and play like he did in 2011.

    I agree, can't say I'm that impressed with Red but with Quinn back maybe he'll be better.

  • PCJS does not reward the rational and realistic.

    Realists were made fools last year when they said that an undersized rookie would not be the starting QB. He went on to shatter records.

    This year, anyone saying that we couldnt afford high end pass rushers had egg on their face after the whirlwind of deals we experienced in the last few days. God favors the Seahawks.

    People here are so fickle. Bryant IS a run stuffer. Anyone here who thinks he is not doesn't really pay attention to football or doesn't understand the game.

    Yes he had a down season, no it's not because he got paid. The man is a monster, and played on a foot injury that a lot of guys of his size wouldn't even get on the field with. Before the injury, he was playing great, and after the injury, our defense actually declined especially in the run protection. Combine that with Kam's ankle injury and our run defense was weakened quite a bit the last part of the season. These two getting an off season to heal will improve that aspect again.

    However......I do not want to be called the Dream team and turn out like the Eagles a couple years ago.

He says he wants to play the rest of his career with the Bucs and that he's willing to wait for them to match any offer that he gets. Would be nice if the Hawks offer him a contract and the Bucs refuse to match. Just another dude with a chip on his shoulder. He's versatile, can move along the line, and get after the passer. I'm a bigger fan of his than I am Bryant, but hopefully he can be had for cheaper since consensus is that Bryant's the better player.

  • Our team is nothing like the so called "dream team" so there is nothing to worry about. People see big signings and make crazy accusations with no intelligence behind them. Hate and fear will do that to some people...

    Mee too, and I think adding more Offense in the draft TE please and mabye even a big WR to compete with Tate at the X, I think he will bail next year and I'd rather have a guy with some familiarity with the offense.


    Agreed. I never thought we would be going DL crazy in the draft like so many pundits think.

    I'll almost guarantee we go LB, TE or big WR at #56.


    LB, TE, and big WR are my top 3 desires for the draft. This draft is very deep at TE and WR this year. Could you imagine if a 6'4 Hunter slipped to us in the 2nd, or a 6'5 Zach Ertz. This offense is already scary, but both McCoy and Tate could easily loose their spot to a 2nd round pick at their position because TE and WR will be that good this year.

  • I'm so stoked. Bennett give the Hawks the option to play a typical 4-3 front, generating more pass rush than when Big Red is in. He's played some snaps at 3-tech too.

    The versatility shaping up in the defensive front has me all kinds of excited.
