    KCHawkGirl you wake up on the wrong side of the bed or are you always this horrible?

    Just trying to convey he isn't as bad as some people think. Probably doesn't make this team but he will make another team and probably be a starter. This kind of thing is the downside of being a fan of an elite team. I just don't like the tone of the criticism of him some are taking.

  • Maybe on another team Guy would be safe, but this team is just too stacked with quality DB's for him to make the squad I think.

    IMO he shouldn't still be making the same mistakes in year #2. If you didn't know him, you'd think he was a rookie. Still looks like the game is moving too fast for Guy to catch up.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

  • I actually think Maragos will be the odd man out. His veteran minimum is too much to pay for a special teams guy. With all the other DBs that have more potential, it would a waste of money to keep him.

    He's the only FS behind Earl Thomas though and he's solid.

  • Chill out, KCFakegirl. Hernia might have been a bit curt, but his point is a very valid one. Guy will likely be cut and will likely end up on one of those two teams, as SF has a need at the position, and the Jags have our old D-coordinator who seems to like snapping up our cast-offs. i don't think it was necessarily an indictment of Guy's play necesarily, as much as it was an acknowledgement that he's likely to be the odd man out this season and will end up on another team.

  • Guy's game is kinda like Loutulelie's game . . . Looks good in preseason because it suits individual effort. Reckless, out of control, big plays that stand out . . . But also selfish. A guy who will be out of position too often, and whose stupid penalties, including needless celebrations of the self, will get the team in trouble.

    Yesterday was no different. He was fortunate that his reckless play led him into plays rather than past them, but he was still reckless and selfish. And frankly, he got a lot of credit on the broadcast for mop up tackles that other players made the play.

    Have you tried to antisipate the angle on a guy that runs a 4.3 40.

    Yes, in fact, I have. Angle becomes exponentially more important. Especially with the sideline as the extra defender.


    Incorrect. You don't want to let a guy with speed get outside of you, as he'll do what Pryor did, then get out of bounds without getting touched. You play a sideline angle to force him back inside to your own pursuit. Johnson looked like he took a poor angle because he misjudged Pryor's speed, but in that case you don't use the sideline as a defender with that much field to play with.

    You have to force him back inside where more guys can get to him. NEVER let speed get outside of you. The defense is weakest there.

  • I'm not going to comment on the quality or precision of his play, but Guy definitely popped on the field tonight. He seemed to be everywhere. There was one sequence where he was in the mix every single play for about six or seven plays in a row. Sure he was probably out of position for some of those plays, and might have been late on some of those plays, but he gets to the football with energy every time.

    He may very well not stick on our roster but he will show up on someone else's, and I give him a good chance of being a starter somewhere if he continues to develop.

    Nice try, but you don't seem to be following along with what actually happened. He had the sideline and still let him get around and outside of him. You sure you just don't want to argue about something?

  • The weird part is why everyone won't just give him credit for a good game.

    Here is the deal, I believe he was something like a 5th or 6th round pick. We have had him for 2 years?

    During that time he was on the PS, which means he was working hard or they wouldn't keep him and it means that his effort was making our other players better. He has been a Seahawk for us, worked hard for us and should get some credit for that.

    Yes, he had a few plays in camp that were reckless and maybe even dirty. But it is clear that he is still finding himself and so to compensate is a little bit exuberant. And that is where 30% of this weird hate comes from, people don't like him because he looks awkward on some backstage video thing.

    But he hasn't cost us anything in games that any of our other backups haven't, he made a lot of plays in that last game and deserves credit for it.

    I just find it odd that people want him to play better and then when he does, they won't even give him credit for it. They have their mind made up about the guy and like to throw stones at him for really no reason other than to be a whipping post. He isn't Chris #*(@#$ Massey out there, he is a kid that was on the PS that is trying his best to make a team that is so talented at his position he has little shot. But the "I can't wait for that guy to be gone" stuff is frankly weird.

  • The reaction to this is.....interesting. It really has much to do with the vast majority of the human population having the propensity to accept what is considered a known vs actually having to review empirical evidence and have to formulate an analysis.

    There's always the next game, people.

    Would you have preferred the poster to have written, " In my humble opinion, Winston really hasn't shown enough improvement to warrant a roster spot this year." "A trend that's been occuring this year (though I'm sure it's more of a coincidence and/or because of talent evaluation) are ex Seahawk players being claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars or the San Francisco 49ers.

    Just because the execution of their post may be in poor taste, doesn't mean that the idea behind it is shortsided or stupid.

  • Guy had a good game last night. He took full advantage with his last opportunity this preseason.

    Will he make the team? Well that depends on what the Special teams coach has to say.

    Because great football players are all really articulate and well spoken. I'm not sure that I am willing to make a judgement on the guy's football intelligence based on the way he talks. I'm just not that talented.

    I guess I just disagree with most here. We are not talking about a starter, but a backup SS to Kam. Me personally, I would rather have the guy who is more talented and coach him up, than a guy who gets left wheezing an athletic QB's dust on two separate plays. I just hope people are as tolerant if Jeron is in the game when SEA sees Cam Newton or Kapersnacks twice. :roll:

    Jeron played against Newton and Kaepernick last year. He didn't seem to have a problem. Jeron doesn't celebrate a routine play like it was the biggest thing to ever have happened. Guy seems to think making a simple tackle is the cause for a huge celebration. Act like you've been there before. As for stupid penalties, Guy is sure to make at least one a game. He's like Breno on defense and special teams. It's over-aggression and he's doing it in practice too. Somebody valuable will get hurt because of his recklessness. That's not a good thing. Dude needs to learn to control himself better. He is a good player, no doubt.

    Your making a judgement on Johnson without watching Guy having the same chance, Johnson may have missed, but given Guys record of going for the big score or hit I would think he may over commit and completly take him self out of the play hoping for a highlight hit,Johnson missed but then again Pryor has a whole scrapebook of making guys miss. I'll take smarter and someone that will learn or practice contain while waiting for help to arrive then someone that loves to take chances hoping that he makes the play, which is how I see Guy right now, not saying he can't improve, but he's record to date doesn't imply thats his style.

    ...and speaking of Cam. I'd like Winston Guy a lot more if he didn't celebrate every half tackle like he was Superman. The dude is fighting for a roster spot but conducts himself like he's the second coming of Ray Lewis. Like Barry Sanders once said "act like you've been there before".

    I will credit him with some good plays this pre-season and trust the FO to make the right call. I'm fine with or without him.
