numbers 50-59 are for LB's, so is Avril going to play Stronside LB for us and move KJ to MLB and Wagner to WLB? That would beef up pur run D, at least size wise.


Thats kind of like saying were moving Wilson to Slot since OBO is gone so Percy can be a duel threat as a QB/RB.

Jesus does this stuff never end, there is a reason Wagner is MLB, he was in the running for DROTY there, he's much better at run vs pass. Thats kind of like saying were moving Wilson to Slot since OBO is gone so Percy can be a duel threat as a QB/RB.

I know. :laugh: It seems that every time we get a player that excels at a position, somebody crawls out of the wookwork and says, well if he was good there, he'd be even better at this position, because.....well, he looks like he should play there.

Sometimes I wonder if fans pick players' positions by hair color or facial hair or shoe size or something.

Don't forget name too. I am convinced Manti Te'o wouldn't have been the sensation he was during the college regular season if his name was Herb Smith.

Hill is the only UFA not listed on the Seahawks.com roster. At this point Patrick Chukwurah has a better shot at coming back.

Interestingly, he's wearing a number that can play both DE and LB.


That's a key point here. I'd guess our strategy is going to go even more in this direction, with guys being more versatile and interchangeable. They're like Legos. Plus, when you try to step on them, it's gonna hurt like hell.

The same can be said of Steve Stonebreaker.

So, uh, Leroy has been let go?
Well, just a second there, professor. We, uh, we fixed the *glitch*. So he won't be receiving a paycheck anymore, so it'll just work itself out naturally. :sarcasm_off:

Can't LB's wear numbers in the 90's as well? You all really want this dude to be something he isn't.

LMAO

Everyday in my house: "how many times do I have to tell you to put these fricking Legos away when you're done?!?!?"

I really like what we're doing with these pick-ups. The guys we're getting are the guys we targeted specifically for their athleticism and versatility. At some point we will grab a bulldog- another FA or the draft for 1 or 3-tech type player that can hold his ground on a double team or collapse the pocket one-on-one.

As far as our needs now as a team however, we're starting to just get nitpicky. We're fine how we are. We're not going to see a lot of running in the latter parts of games (another reason for the ultra-athletic types we've grabbed) so I wouldn't be surprised to see us grab a slot corner early and another athletic DE/Will type guy with versatility. Who is out there in the draft that fits this bill?

I do have one burning question...

WHEN DOES FOOTBALL START?????? Wooooo Hoooooo!

How about if it was Herb Smoak?
