He's a backup QB. Gotta have one. Don't care who it is. He's perfect!

Feels good to have a franchise qb. Clip board holder is irrelevant now. Who cares who it is.

He fits this offense well so I like it for that. He isn't a great backup, but he can do the job well enough.

Spoke to someone close to Thigpen. Nothing done yet with Hawks contrary to @PFCentral report. I'll pass along anything if that changes

The best part of signing Thigpen is it improves Portis' chances of becoming the backup.

These guys are competing for a backup job, with some luck they'll play late in games they are winning or they will develop real skills as a clipboard holder.

Underwhelming!

It seems to me that VY is a more viable choice than Thigpen, but either one can win games in the NFL.

I'd prefer Vince Young and Josh Portis to be the #2 and #3, but Thigpen would be adequate. Just as long as it's not Leinart.

I would have to think that PCJS are going to draft a QB and let them compete for the backup job with Thigpen and Portis. I think it is to early to worry about who the backup is he may not be on he roster yet.

PFCENTRAL IS NOT A LEGIT SOURCE

It's the second coming of Incarcerated Fraud. Take a look at the back catalogue. They do exactly the same thing as ICB. They pre-empt things. A deal that is speculated by the media is then a 'done deal' on PFC or ICB, they write a few lines of copy and leave it there. They hedge their bets on it coming true. If it does, then they force the link down your throat to prove how they 'got it right'. If it doesn't, then they delete the post.

When Glazer, Mort, Schefter, La Canfora etc report this, we should talk about it. The title of this thread should include the word 'speculation'.

Incarcerated Bob is just some guy who became a 'personality' by ringing up the New York phone-ins every day. He has a thirst for attention. Whoever started PFC clearly felt like they fancied a crack at it too. Don't get duped by these phoney websites.

I'm guessing this is just the start of a QB pile for TC. Hopefully we end up with a decent backup once the competition has weeded most of them out.

I think it's great that the Hawks are at finally a place where we are having this much conversation about the backup QB...
and not still trying to figure out who the heck the starter is going to be to lead the Hawks!

Wow, thanks for the info. News Flash: our Quarterback better not get hurt.
Um, that's kind of how it works, you don't want your quarterback getting hurt.

In other news, the sun will come out today. :)

That being said, I agree 100 percent, we need to draft a RT, needs to happen.

Clayton has been saying that the Hawks should go after Thigpen ever since Flynn's trade to Oakland has been imminent.

^^^ This right here.

Another "hand wringing", "this guy, no that guy" headed-for-10 pages thread over something that doesn't even look like its official yet. And if, when it does go official, so what... what has the current administration shown any of us since it took over that makes us believe for one minute that Thigpen, Vince Young, Joe Schmoe, et al that are signed in April, for any position, let alone backup QB, are written in stone for the coming season. Damn near as likely they'll be cut before the season even starts...

Carry on.

Exactly. Remember back earlier in Free Agency came across this jabroni who honestly tweeted out something like "Jake Long to the Rams done, worked hard for this so give credit where it's due" (this was about 2 weeks before Long actually did sign with the Rams also) Seriously who says that? Dude Clearly just tries hard at connecting the dots and throws stuff at the wall.

All that's stopping me from becoming the next Incarcerated Bob or PFCentral is a twitter account and some self respect. Seriously, ANYONE can do this stuff... but why would you?

I'm still hoping that even if we sign Thigpen, we bring in Portis and a rookie to compete for the 2 available QB spots on the roster. Or will they go with 2 QB's on the roster again this year, with 1 on the practice squad? Probably, right? If they were confident enough in Wilson to stay healthy as a rookie to only carry 2 QB's on gameday, why wouldn't they do that again now that Russ is more of a known commodity?

IF this is a legitimate done deal, it's not the end of the world. My guess is they'll bring in three or four QB's total for camp, kick the tires and divide the reps up to lighten the load. They'll figure out who the best one or two backups are and dump the rest. We'll probably end up with a very cap-friendly quarterback situation, with adequate insurance against possible Wilson injury, when it's all said and done.

Hopefully, Russell isn't so critical as Manning is, about how the backup should properly hold the clipboard...

Great signing. He can run the pistol read option very well.

He isn't nearly as good as RW in the pocket, but he is a mobile QB that can run the Seahawks offense effectively.

Honestly, all we need to do is get whomever we use as a backup to a level where they can effectively manage the game if they are needed. There were/are no real options right now (outside of the draft) for a quarterback to put any faith in as more than a game manager.

It isn't... and I can't believe PFCentral has generated a four page thread discussing.

It might happen... but rest assured this is just a complete guess from PFC/IncaceratedBob/whoever...

They don't need to post just ground breaking stories to generate a faux reputation. They just need to guess what 'might' happen in the short term future. If Thigpen signs in two weeks, then they 'called it'. If he doesn't, they'll delete this thread or pretend it never existed.

It's how it works.

We'll know this is a 'done deal' when Schefter, Glazer, Mort or La Canfora reports it... or the Seahawks make an announcement.

hopefully if it turns out to be true we don't just hand him the job.

Everyone else has to compete for their spot I say we end up drafting a guy and bringing in another out of work QB or two and letting the best guy win the job.

TBH I don't know much about Thigpen so I don't have an informed opinion either way on him.

If this was true you would think they would have announced it on .com by now.

Hey, being able to stand on the sidelines while holding a clipboard and watching a legend in the making is a pretty big deal. That's a dream job right there. He'll be able to tell his grandkids that he once touched Russell Wilson's hand after a touchdown in the preseason. Pretty groundbreaking stuff if you ask me.

I'm still hoping that even if we sign Thigpen, we bring in Portis and a rookie to compete for the 2 available QB spots on the roster. Or will they go with 2 QB's on the roster again this year, with 1 on the practice squad? Probably, right? If they were confident enough in Wilson to stay healthy as a rookie to only carry 2 QB's on gameday, why wouldn't they do that again now that Russ is more of a known commodity?


Well, you do have a blog. So all you really need is a twitter account. ;)

As long as it wasn't someone who played for the Cardinals last year, I'm totally okay with it.

PFCentral once reported Seattle was close to signing John Abraham: http://www.profootballcentral.com/2013/ ... ham-close/

Nearly a month later, Abraham is still a free agent and we signed Avril and Bennett instead.

Pure guess work on their behalf.

They might have said a deal is close but everyone knows that the hierarchy of done deals goes close, almost done, nearly finalized, and then imminent. Once reports say the deal is imminent, we'll know that a deal is really just weeks/months away.
