Update: After working out 4, Seahawks to sign Brady Quinn

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Don't give a damn. If Russell goes down, Marshawn gets the ball. As long as he can hand it off (Brady has experience doing this with Charles), I don't give a shit. Without Russ, we have little chance of winning. I'd like to get into good draft pick territory if Russ goes down, and Quinn gets us to that point.

  • I'm sure Pete and John are making an informed decision based off much more evidence than our knee jerk reactions about these players. If they liked Quinn best, they're probably right.

    Personally? I think Seneca was a great backup qb, possibly as good as it gets without someone deciding to make him their starter.

  • If he plays, I am just going to squint a lot while muttering his first name only.

    It's as if John Schneider doesn't know the rules. You never trust a man with no first name. Especially at the most important position, backup QB.

    I bet within the week we will have a story about how Pete recruited Quinn to go to USC but didn't get him back then.

  • I heard Pioli on nfl radio say that he is a team guy,hard worker and knows his role as a backup qb. He also said he is one of the greatest people he has ever been around of all his years in the league. According to Pioli, his short comings as a player is his accuracy.

    I don't lose any sleep over who the hell is the backup QB but I would rather have a hard working team guy than a guy thinking he should be a starter somewhere. If Wilson gets hurt for an extended period of time its "maybe next year" time anyway. Teams that have won with a backup usually win with defense and a run game anyway. Hell Charlie Batch was 3-1 to start the year a few years ago so look no further than that as your model. I'm sure if the right guy in the right spot is on the board in the draft, we take a guy. I don't see it as a must have draft pick however. There will probably be many more guys to choose from on the street this summer including T-Jack. So welcome aboard Brady and maybe Mr Wilson can bring the very best out in you to.

    Man.. I dunno about that. I think I like McCoy better than Quinn. Scrappier for sure. Look, all he has to do is dump it off to Harvin and hand it to Lynch. I guess that is OK by me. Anything past that? I dunno. Those guys must have seen something in Quinn that no one else has in the last few years, because I think that guy STUNK :)

    Keep on slidin Russell!!!!!

    +1, McCoy is a better backup, he's less turnover prone and a better runner. I personally would want a backup who doesn't turn the ball over, that's just my two cents.

    Quinn, who is from Dublin, Ohio, said he was briefly recruited by USC but never considered going there.

    "I really had no desire whatsoever," he said. "They recruited me a little bit. I committed earlier in the process."

    Pete Carroll NEVER FORGETS.

    *Cue Pete Carroll staring into a mirror like Mark Wahlberg in Fear, shirtless, with Brady carved into his bloody chest.

  • I think this will work brilliantly.

    You'll have Dangeruss out there, driving for a crucial touchdown over the 40-Cupcakes, when PC will give the order for BBQ (Boy-toy Brady Quinn, wearing a junior high-sized uni) to do some inappropriate stretching on the sideline. With half of the 'Cupcakes defense gazing upon Mr. Handsome w/lustful eyes, Russ will hand the ball off to BeastMode, who'll break the limp-wristed tackles of blushing suitors and go in for the score. Final Score: 'Hawks 77, Whiners 3.

    Of course, then Harbaugh will jump up and down like a monkey flinging his feces, yelling "WHAT'S YOUR DEAL?!? SCREECH IS NOT MY REAL COUSIN!"

    Yeah, I trust this maneuver 100%. Until Boss Hog catches up w/JS, I'm all in w/everything he does.

    So I wonder if Quinn's completion percentage on handoffs is around 55% like his pass completion percentage is?

    Sweet so besides one of the most important trait for a qb he doesn't really have any shortcomings.... :thirishdrinkers:

    Probably, it's just Schneider doing his due diligence on these guys.

    manuel is going to be gone before we have a shot at him... and we don't want him anyways.. coming from a guy that watched him his whole career at fsu.. he's one of those guys with all the tools.. just doesn't seem to put them together on the field and take control like he should.

    Figures. Dump Flynn, get Quinn, and all the Flynnisms are already set to become Quinnisms. :34853_doh:
    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.
