    Winfield isn't invincible but if he stays healthy buys the Seahawks time to find a long-term 3rd corner (with long-term being 3-4 years since anything over that doesn't seem realistic).


    I agree Trufant is a sure tackler but the slot is not his normal position it was one he was still learning. Winfield is I believe, an even better tackler and playing the position he has played the bulk of his career. I think Winfield is an small upgrade at everything Tru did well but a huge upgrade in the area of instincts and that makes him much more versatile and dangerous.

    Love Tru but there is no shame in being replaced by a guy of Winfields caliber.

  • In particular, two things stood out.
    1. He controlled a zone against Detroit that we had trouble controlling with Trufant.
    2. He laid wood on Alfred Morris. That is no easy task.

  • So I noticed that Winfield has worn #26 his entire career, first with the Bills, and then with the Vikings.

    If #26 in Seattle was held by a practice squad guy, I imagine he could get it here, too... but I don't see Mike Rob giving up his number.

    What number does Winfield get? 27, since it's one better than 26? 23, since Winfield is essentially replacing Tru and was drafted #23 overall back in 1999?

    What say you all?

    21. It's available. 27 is Guy.

    And no need to pick the number of the player that you're expected to replace. A bit of a respect issue to me.

  • Great for scramblers and outside runs. Winfield looks like he lives for that stuff. Screens are gonna be tough for teams with him and KJ out there. I single out KJ because he's always in the backfield on screens.

  • He should also have a big impact on scrambling QB's like Cam, RGIII and Kaep. Offences will have to factor him into their game plan and with a decent pass rush , Wagner and our secondary, that doesn't leave alot of room for error.
