    Smith got away with retaliation against Sherman (until he finally got flagged for it), I'd bet $$ that Smith would have only retaliated > ONCE < before Browner would have shown him what " contact" really means in the phrase, "contact sports". :16:

  • Adding Winfield would be an A+ move, on our part. And I'm up with giving him a decent contract, too. At this point Winfield > Woodson.

    Winfield will improve this team in 4 criteria.

    1) Give this young secondary as someone said a Lawyer Milloy veteran presence. Trufant is good, but he's not legendary and has a more quiet demeanor.

    Guys like Lane, Thurmond, Maxwell, and Snead all can learn from this guy.

    2) Gives the Seahawks, a quality backup at either starting CB spot if one of our guys go down.

    3) Gives the Seahawk, a player in speculation that could be a top notch nickel corner or....

    4) Gives the Seahawks, a player in speculation can also convert to FS in place of Thomas allowing the Earl of Boom to kick down as an elite slot defender.

    Winfield is deserving for whatever contract the Seahawks give him and I won't question it or disapprove.

  • He'd fit in well with the LOB no doubt. Still has some left in the tank, big hitter, leader in the locker room etc. Hopefully they'll sign him.

  • After reading Vikings' forums about Winfield, I really hope we sign him now. He sounds like a very good player still.

    I also noticed how much animosity a lot of their fans have against the Seahawks. You can tell they are still actually butthurt over the Harvin deal(whether they admit it or not).

  • Honestly one of the best highlight video's I've seen in a while. The music makes it even more epic, but the play is just amazing. Just dominating like it's high school football all over again. I really hope he ends up a Hawk.

    How funny would it be to see all these ex-Vikings win a ring with the Hawks this season? The ULTIMATE revenge for the Hutch "Poison Pill" fiasco. Karma.

    Edit: Forgot my whole point of this post. The Bernie. We need this guy so that he can do The Bernie before every game. That's the only thing this team is missing. Oh, and a kicker, but The Bernie is definitely more important.

    So much this. In the NFL forum where that video is also in a thread I said how that is the best part. Ty Lawson got's the move down pretty well to.

  • when is the visit? anyone know?

    Been living in MN for awhile, and outside of Harvin, Allen and Peterson, this is the only Viking I really like. And I know when he went out to Washington for a visit the local sports radio were tracking that more than when Jennings was visiting. they dont want to lose him.

    Would be a great addition for a team trying to get to a Super Bowl.

  • I really like Winfield and I think he deserves to get paid decently but that is part of the problem. I don't for one second think that JS and PC think the time is "now" as expressed in this thread. They are building for long term success while making moves that they think can make them win now but not hurt the team to badly over the years.

    Yes Sherman and RW will need to get paid but you can minimize the hits of those contracts by having some cap room coming in, lots of signing bonus spread over the years and then take the bigger hit when the cap starts increasing more again (tied to the next tv contract). So we are coming in under the cap in good shape and setup for the future.

    The more we sign players to large contracts the more we "mess" with long term success. So the question which I believe JS and PC will answer much better than us is what is the value of the player vs the cost and our ability to keep being succesful. One key injury and a season can go down the tube so you can't sell out hoping that everything aligns the right way.

    I see Winfield playing with the Seahawks if he takes less money than he is worth for the chance to win it all. If he wants to maximize / near maximize a deal he won't be playing for us.

  • Spent the morning with a (hardcore) Viking fan today. He described Winfield as relentless and fearless. Felt he was still one of the best corners in the league and shook his head in disgust when I told him he was visiting Seattle today. I asked him why the Vikes would let him walk and his one word answer was "stupid".

    In other parts of our conversation he was obviously bitter (and biased) re Harvin. Called him a "nut-job" and said he was "happy" Harvin was no longer on the team (LOL). Went further in saying if he had his choice, he would take Rice over Harvin 10 times out of 10.

    I argued his points on Harvin but found him to be an astute guy that identified the fact we were not as good vs the run as we'd like to be. He gushed about Winfield and felt he would contribute to fixing that problem, immediately. Let's get this done, JS!

  • I have been really excited about the prospect of Winfield joining the Seahawks, I've voiced how I think he would be a perfect fit and an instant upgrade to one of our few flaws towards the end of last season - run defense and nickel cornerback.

    For those of you concerned that his stature conflicts with the Legion of Boom, I don't think there's anything to be worried about. Some people think the L.O.B. is characterized by its size, but I think what really sets the L.O.B. apart from all other secondaries and really is the most crucial aspect is the physicality. Antoine Winfield may only be 5'9" but he has physicality and toughness in bunches. I love Marcus Trufant, but it's hard to argue that he's as physical as the rest of the L.O.B. No other corner in the league last year came CLOSE to how well Winfield defended against the run last year, not even Browner. And Winfield still finished in the top 20 CBs in terms of pass defense too, I believe.

    I'm starting to feel sorry for Minnesota, I feel like we've been steadily siphoning their talent since the mid-2000's. They've become our minor league farm team. XD

    You might want to do a little homework before posting things like this, because saying that you prefer two wholly unproven options (incl. one with a major injury history) to the premier nickel/slot corner in the entire NFL is patently absurd. Also, Winfield isn't signing "for the minimum" somewhere "to compete" like he's some form of camp fodder. He's an elite player at what he does, he has a healthy offer on the table from the Redskins to be a starter, the Vikings are trying to get him back, and anyone who wants him is going to have to pony up.


    You've got an AMEN !! Despite being, what, 36 years old the guy is still a player to be reckoned with.
    I see nickel corner as being the most needful piece of the pass defense and Winfield is one of the
    best in the business. And, yes, he would not come cheap. At least it would stop a lot of us (myself
    included) from having Badger dreams.

    I also like Lane and, especially, Thurmond trey. Seems every time he makes a play though, he breaks a nail.

  • The thing about Winfield is, he is really playing his best football of his career in his 30s.

    I get that there is the age thing that generally is a golden rule. But Winfield legitimately is bucking that trend. Not going to say he's Moyer like -- but the guy is not showing decline at all and in fact is showing he's playing better than he ever did in his 20s.

    He's a unique player. I would table the age related concerns on him. They really aren't proving to be accurate at all. In fact, there is going to be one team out there who is going to ignore conventional thinking and be happy they did.

  • At 35 he might just want to have a chance to go all the way. My biased view is the seahawks have the better chance. Playing in front of our crowd and getting to be part of this team has to be worth quite a bit I suspect.

    Nope, Browner and Trufant were the starters until Trufant got hurt, Thurmond came in and got hurt, Sherman came in and the rest is history


    Can easily explain that by pointing out PC sometimes playing veterans while prepping rookies. It doesn't mean that Browner's coverage skills are superior to Thurmond's, because they're just not. Browner has his role, but he got burned all the time in ways that Thurmond, even in limited playing time, showed strength against.


    Browner made many more plays on the ball. We're arguing a Pro-Bowler versus a guy who can't even stay healthy, this isn't a discussion.

    To say Thurmond is better than Browner in coverage is still a stretch. Better at playing man? Maybe, better in zone? No, better at press? No.

    Winfield is still scheduled to visit another team or two. So unless the Hawks make him an offer he can't refuse, I don't see this getting done for another week or two.

    Winfield's 35, so he's going to sign with the team that pays him the most. If all things are equal? Then we have a shot because we're a contender for a title. IMO he's the perfect CB for our slot needs. He had one of the highest defensive passer ratings in all the league from the slot last year.

  • I would be ecstatic to bring Winfield aboard but he would have to want championship over money for such a deal to happen. I've read that he is asking for somewhere around 7 mil (per year!) and I don't see JS offering that. Unless he's squandered his years of NFL money, he should be equally happy with 5 mil and a ring, IMO.

    It's no wonder he is scheduled to visit the Skins. Only Snyder (and Jerry Jones) throw money around as recklessly as that.

    Highly doubt he's offered $5 mil. IMO he will sign with us for $3 million.

    Considering he made his mark by offering great run support...offering half of his asking price would, IMO, be fair compensation. Our opposition won't have the luxury of running the ball after halftime, so the math works. Let's get it done JS!

  • Clayton believes Seattle may take the stance of waiting until after the draft to make a decision on bringing someone like Winfield in to compete for the nickelback position assuming the dynamic duo isn't sold on anyone in the draft or on their current roster.

  • Ed Werder just said something along the lines of this on NFL 32: "Winfield was in Seattle all day yesterday and I've been told there is mutual interest, I expect negotiations to start soon."

    pls.

    Besides, I don't think he'd be available after the draft at this rate.
