Roster bubble player(s) you are rooting for the most vs. OAK

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • It can be any player that isn't a lock for roster (psst: Stephen Williams and Jermaine Kearse are locks for the roster). So guys like Derrick Coleman, Spencer Ware, the fat seal guy from Denver, Chris Harper, Cooper Helfet, etc, etc. I think Mayowa is a lock given how promising he is long term and how depleted we are at DE, but I guess it's fair to say that his status is up for debate.

    My two are Spencer Ware and Michael Brooks. I am pretty sure that despite their strong preseason play and bright outlook, they will be cut anyway in favor of inferior prospects.

    In the case of Ware, he is too far away as a FB prospect even though he has impressive talent as a runner and special teams player. The team seemed alarmingly comfortable with the idea of missing Robinson in real games, which pretty much tells you that they must really like Coleman, because Ware and Bates would not inspire that kind of confidence at FB. I want to be wrong though- I want Ware to make it. His resilience, power and vision make him a poor man's Marshawn Lynch even more than Michael and (much more) than Turbin. I think he could be a vicious lead blocker too if his special teams play and ability to deliver hits as a runner are any indication. I think the only way he makes it is if Coleman is a disaster or gets hurt, or if Ware looks suddenly very good at FB, or if he has a ridiculously good performance at RB.

    I only saw Brooks in the game for two snaps vs. the Packers. When Benson Mayowa dominated backups, he got promoted. When Michael Brooks dominated backups, he didn't get promoted before essentially being benched. Maybe Brooks just got the short end of the stick because Seattle is jammed with DTs right now and it's nothing to read into, but I'm 99% sure that Brooks needs a huge game vs. Oakland to make the roster. I feel like the staff still hasn't noticed him yet, or perhaps they are trying to hide him to sneak him on the PS. Brooks is far superior to the rookie version of Jaye Howard last year, and they stashed Howard on the inactive portion of the roster. A year later, that's looking like a smart move. I hope Seattle makes it 2 for 2, but I'm nervous they will not.

  • Jeremy Lane is definitely on the bubble, and I think that his ST play is very good as a gunner, and I think he played reasonably well on the outside in spell of Browner. People here think that he looks confused in coverage, and I don't think he's a finished project, but I would hate to lose him to Jacksonville and then watch them make good use of him covering #2 WRs.

    The problem is that I'm also rooting for Byron Maxwell, and I suspect that only one of these two guys is going to make the roster.

  • Coleman, Mayowa, and Sealver Siliga.

    In my mind, Lane and Maxwell both have made the roster.


    Into regular season play, some random team finds injury issues at corner and Seattle trades Winfield to open room for a player to come off IR in week 6. Thurmond looks better than Winfield from my seat.

    Just one of several possible scenarios, but a corner will likely be traded before it is all said and done.

  • Brooks is definitely on my list, but I'm gonna go with Coleman. He needs to improve blocking, I agree, but he also seems like a stud on ST and a viable receiver.

    Ware? I just don't know what to say. I'm praying we can hide him.

  • Mayowa for sure, got tools and looks like he could play this game.

    I like a lot of these fringe D players but keeping each with promise is impossible especially with Avril, Clemons, and Irvin out, with 3 spots spoken for not sure that Mayowa stays.

    I like what I've seen from Ware and McGrath, like them to make it somehow.

    McDonald has been solid at the nose as well.

  • This is difficult with so many talented players on the edge, Bowie, Bailey, Ware, Brooks, Coleman, Harper. I would like to see Ware and Bailey stick and hope we can slip the rest thru to the PC or some way stash them.

  • Honestly, with injuries at the D-line, I see Mayowa as a shoe-in and I don't think he'll be going anywhere.

    Chris Harper and Spencer Ware for sure.

  • Mayowa.

    I have developed a tendency to shout BENSSSSSONNNNN! at the tv when he comes up with a sack or a tackle.

    Plus he said his mother died recently, so he hasn't got anything left to lose. How can you not cheer a guy on when he says something like that?

  • 1. Deshawn Shead: He's my darkhorse candidate to make the roster. However, Chris Margagos has been looking pretty legit as Earl Thomas' under study. Margagos just has such quickness combined with great foot speed where he just looks incredible in space like Thomas does. However, what I want to see if the Seahawks possibly trade a CB if Shead can standout to make it as a 6th CB/5th Safety type of DB.

    2. Ron Parker: Pretty much see Shead, he's like an alternative backup plan to Shead. He's also been injured much of camp, this last game will be an important one to his chances.

    3. Jeremy Lane: I would like him to restore my faith in his Cornerbacking abilities and not be a rag doll when being blocked.

    4. Back-Up TEs: I want to see a big game or two from somebody like their really is a competition going on here.

    5. Most importantly, I want to see a HUGE game by Brady Quinn, not for him to make the roster, but so we get enough trade value for a 7th round pick.

  • I think Pete has deliberately kept Harper's reps down in pre-season. We have good depth at wide receiver and he is a long term project with huge upside. He is more than likely destined for the practice squad, so keeping him under raps for now makes sense.

  • Coleman for sure, I doubt he'll make the team, but am hoping he catches on somewhere. Really gonna' be watching the D-Line (what there is left of it) in this one. Also, Winston Guy/Jeremy Lane, just seeing how they play etc. I have a feeling Guy won't make the team, but you have to think that Jax will pick up another one or two of our cuts on Saturday.

  • I am very interested in the Coleman / Ware competition as I view FB an important position in our offense.

    I want Mayowa and Howard to have a good game against starters, even though Oakland is not good.

    Also, every other D-Lineman on the roster. Very interested with the injuries we have at the moment.

    Bradford, Mayowa, Bowie, Bailey are almost guaranteed at this point IMO.

  • Lotulelei and Sealver Siliga. Hope that Siliga is worth giving up Moffitt for (I think Moffitt was worth a 6th or 7th round pick from someone--to have that value thrown away on a two week rental is pretty tough).

    I like your list, though I think Lane is pretty much a lock.

    I can't imagine us not keeping 6 CB's
    The obvious 6 would be: Sherm, Browner, Thurmond, Winfield, Lane, Maxwell.

  • I think Mayowa will make it based on what happens in practices, since he hasn't gone against the murderers row of Oline talent in games but in practice against Okung, Breno, and even Bailey and Bowie. I hope he is showing enough to earn that spot on the roster.

    I don't. Dude's dumb as a stump and lacks fundamentals. His awesome forced fumble was a whiffed tackle for a TD waiting to happen. He was out of position and got lucky. I don't think he gets the love in the locker room either.

    Lane and Maxwell would start on any other team IMO. Fantastic depth in the secondary and great special teamers. Winfield and Thurmond are duking it out for the nickel corner. Maragos and Jeron Johnson are excellent depth for the safety spots. Guy is totally the odd man out in the secondary (litterally odd. That kid seems weird to me).

    I think Mayowa makes the team no problem, but the real question is if he'll be able to stick once Avril, Irvin and Clemons all come back (assuming Clem isn't ready for week 1).

  • I realize I may be alone on the Winston Guy bandwagon but I watched him his whole college career and really believe he can play at this level. He is a safety that can play in the box and help takeaway the read option that a lot of teams run now. If he doesn't make the Seahawks roster he will make someone else's(probably Jax).

  • Just wanted to confirm the following:

    There is room for both Turbin and Michael in the final roster of players.

    Assuming they are both included, there is no great significance to who Carroll designates as Lynch back-up in first game, as Carroll can switch them around as he pleases.

    Do I have that correct?
    Thanks
