Seahawks were interested in Mike Wallace

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Personally, I don't think the choke artist stuff in regard to Romo is blown enough. He doesn't just choke away playoff games. He's played horribly in almost every prime time game he's ever been involved in. This guy doesn't do well when the spotlight is bright. Look at their record the last three seasons: 8-8, 8-8, 6-10. We've had QBs who could have taken us to those records with the same surrounding talent in Dallas.

    I think you should watch Wallace's last season highlights

    Yeah, but he was stuck with Bryant, Witten, Austin and Murray. Hard to win games with guys like that. ;) In fairness to Romo, he has a crap line, but that does not excuse his deer in the headlights look every time a play has to be made. Perhaps one of the most over-rated QBs of this era and I am now convinced he has pictures of Jerry Jones wearing a little bo peep outfit.

Once we saw just how much money was being talked about was probably the cue to stop pursuing him.

    Mike Wallace Jr. claims his son actually turned down more money from the Minnesota Vikings. The St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks were among the teams that also showed interest, according to Wallace's dad.

    John Schneider specifically said they "Were not involved with any of the Free Agent WR's"

    - I smell BS here. Either Schneider is lying or Wallace's dad is trying to compensate for his son for some reason?

    I think it's safer to bet that Schneider was the more truthful. Both Pete and John have been very honest about things in past interviews. They have told us exactly what they were going to do and have gone out and done it for a few off-seasons now.

  • "Dads" should just shy away from the media, IMO. I too trust JS over some malcontents daddy. What else has he told his dad? That Paul Allen offered him a share of the Trailblazers? That he is secretly working for the CIA and once smothered Beyonce' in mayonnaise?

    All of this has to be taken with a grain of salt. The good news is we got Harvin and NOT Wallace. Wallace Sr. only needs to know he will have nice seats, a Rolex and a T-shirt featuring a mammal jumping through a hula hoop.

    "Showed interest" is not the same thing as "was involved with." It's possible the Seahawks phoned the Wallace camp just long enough to find out what the starting numbers really were -- which Wallace's dad could fairly interpret as "interest", but wouldn't qualify as "involvement" to JS. I don't assume either side was lying in this situation.
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

    Peyton Manning is a choke artist too.
    Romo is no better/worse than Matt Ryan

    Romo is way better than Matt Ryan. If we hadn't lucked out in the draft last year, and the Cowboys had let him go, I'd be thrilled to get Romo for what the Cowboys got him for.

  • Romo will continually get your team into draft position #17.
    It is not whether he has blown big games, it is that his w/l record in big games is about 1-16.

  • If we had a Mike Wallace paired with Percy Harvin, I would probably say in 2013 the Seahawks will field a record-breaking offense, for sure.
