at his age, winfield is not suited to play outside CB, so the idea that he's here because he'll get on the field is retarded. If Browner or Sherman goes down it will be Lane, Thurmond, and Maxwell stepping in while winfield remains in the slot.

I don't think it's beyond the realm of sanity to at least consider that there could be future drug issues with browner/sherman; It's up to them now to steer clear of any issues.

but, the idea that winfield came here in hopes of earning some playing time behind players likely to be suspended for drug abuse is idiotic.

Wow, remember when Florio used to be a credible journalist?.........yeah me either.

So basically this article boils down to "Winfield chose Seattle because it currently has two CB's that MIGHT be suspended in the future." As opposed to every other team that has two CB's that won't ever be suspended? Awesome logic there Florio.

BREAKING: Winfield chose Seattle because he wants a ring.

There is only one reason that Winfield signed with us. He wants to win a ring. His choices were to stay with broken Minn led by Ponder or come to Seattle who was a pash rusher away from going to at least the NFC Championship game with a dynamic rookie QB and a shut down D. Come on, there really was no choice.

Article wasn't worth the seconds I wasted reading it.

This. Thanks for letting me know how much of a waste of time to read the article is also.

Man I hate PFT. Where did logic go. That makes so little sense it's unbelievable. If he wanted a starting job he would go somewhere where he would be offered a starting job which is probably no where. He'd have just stayed in Minnesota.

How is this stuff allowed to be printed? Or typed I guess.

It's not a news source. It's a printed rumor reel. Sports equivalent to TMZ

Blame the internet. No longer are there only 20-30 really good sports writers in the country who work for reputable newspapers that make them write quality articles that have to be approved by an editor before being printed for public consumption. Now any idiot can puke up ridiculous opinions on websites or blogs.

In fact, now the Skip Bayless's of the world are ENCOURAGED to say or type insane things, because it brings eyes and clicks to the company they work for.

Florio should stick to lawyering. He knows nothing about football, and is a known Seahawk hater.

Interesting perspective this article presents...

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... o-seattle/

Ok, I thought this was all behind us? Do any of you folks think there is a real concern over whether a drug test is going to come up dirty again?

I'm putting the Adderall episode behind me and considering it a non-issue moving forward. I'm also confident that Pete & John are too. I mean, are we really thinking we need to protect ourselves against future transgressions by bringing in a "top-shelf" backup CB? Nope, our FO saw an opportunity to grab a sweet acquisition to augment an already killer group.

I'm going to say AW is here because he just wanted to be part of something special, and there is no reason to believe he is thinking he's joining a team of speed junkies that gives him the best chance to eventually start. Who thinks-up this crap?

Thoughts?

So, since Bleacher Report also linked it, it basically proves your point then?

If an identical article had been published about ANY other team, none of you would get this girly. We really are a bunch chattering, sensitive hens as a fanbase.

Good lord.

Normally, I'd agree, but this particular article warrants the hate. Please feel free to point out a single legitimate or logical thought contained in that entire piece...

I would have the same reaction if he wrote the same piece about a QB joining the Steelers because he thought Roethlisberger was likely to committ another assault. I just wouldn't write about it anywhere because I don't care about the Steelers.

The chances of that douche raping another chick is far greater than a Seattle cb going anywhere near adderall again

I dont go to PFT for logical thoughts. I go there for breaking news and tabloid type journalism.

Should we all criticize TMZ using the BBC as a contrast?

No. But no one's hating on PFT for not being up to the standards of the NYTimes. They wrote something objectively stupid and unsourced, and people are calling them on it.

And people bash TMZ all the time. It's like the new synonym for worthless online publication e.g. "PFT is becoming the TMZ of sports reporting."

I think the Vmac played into it as well. If you have seen the Vikings facilities compared to the Vmac it's like comparing a single wide to the playboy mansion. There's tons of reasons to vacate the Vikings squad though. Not just for a ring. Pretty much everything about that organization is swirling around the bowl at an ever increasing rate. We were just smart enough to extend a life ring to those worthy.

Sorry your team, FO and facility sucks so bad Florio.

I go there to read the hilarious comments. It's pure entertainment, and the people who comment there and get into e-wars.... comedy gold.

I'll say one thing, Florio has some "Nards", trouble is, one of them is the size of a "Pea", and the other is just a little tiny sucker.
I wasn't even tempted to click on the link, because I flush better stuff than what he says down the toilet. :141847_bnono:

Winfield could start almost anywhere. He didn't pick Seattle so he would have a shot to start. In fact there are probably less than 5 places in the whole league where he wouldn't be a 3 down starter.

He picked Seattle because we treat our players well and have an excellent shot at a Super Bowl.

Half the time I think the whole logicalvoice shtick HAS to be an act, because no human being could possibly be that foolish. Then I remember that I'm on the Internet....

Quote:
[Schneider] said Winfield's agent was very aggressive in pushing for a deal with Seattle. Schneider considered that an indication players are eager to join a strong Seattle defense. He theorized that Carroll's reputation for treating players as men has gotten around the league, making Seattle a more attractive destination.
