It doesn't seem like long ago and Pete was kind of a joke to a lot of people outside of Seattle. a lot has changed. keep winning and this could be a crazy fun run.

I think Finley would want more money than we'd be willing to pay him. I'd rather see us spend a draft pick to get ASJ with another nice and cheap rookie contract.

Must... wait... three more days... before... rosterbating...

Argh! I can't hold it in anymore. I think Jared Allen will be a Seahawk this March, and if the Steelers axe Troy Polamalu to get out of his $8.25 million cap hit, I think he'll be on the first flight to Seattle as well. Cleanup on aisle three!

Course, we are going to lose some guys. Rice and Clemons are obvious cap casualties, with Bryant and Miller being in play. I think Seattle will have the flexibility to go after some value free agents, and usually the best bang for the buck FAs are defensive players over 30. Finley though? It's cool that he wants to come here, but I don't think he really fits what the Seahawks do.

Why do this given we have better options in house? Though if the price is right....Finley would be a major get and the price will be reasonable if Green Bay decides to play hard ball ala Wes Welker.

Please bring me Finley on a platter. He is a TE on Graham's level. Same type of big, fast, great hands --almost a massive WR. I would rate him as Graham, Julius Thomas, Vernon Davis, Gronk, etc. --that type of TE. He is very good. His only downfall is that he is Percy Harvin like injury prone. But that may be good news, due to his injuries and thus his sub par production this year, he should come at a great deal like price.


What Jermichael Finley have you been watching lately? He's nowhere near the elite TE's.. the guy has hands like Jerramy Stevens used to have. The Graham comparison is incredibly off too.. Graham already has 1000 more yards in his career than Finley in 3 less seasons..

Bringing back McCoy and restructuring Miller would be a better option.

Luke is obviously not going anywhere.. and I wouldn't mind having McCoy back and letting Davis go. But I suppose the difference is pretty minor

Who wouldn't want to play for the Hawks?

Great HC who has fun and runs his team like a college program.
Awesome training facilities at the VMAC.
Amazing home game experience at the Clink where we're almost unbeatable.
And to cap it off we've got the key players to be Superb owl contenders for another 5 years+

Big Nickle. After Jeron Johnson went down Seattle couldn't do their true big nickle defense. JJ has been just average in the NFL outside of the preseason anyway. Our depth at safety is lacking as well. Totally expect 1-2 moves at safety this offseason. And if Troy P. comes for a Winfield type pricetag, I think it's actually a pretty obvious move. Pete will move heaven and earth to get the players he loves, and there wasn't a player at USC he loved more than Polamalu.

Remember how Seattle's "amoeba" defense was a lot of fun early in 2010 and Lawyer Milloy was a terror? They've gone away from that recently because of personnel issues, but if Seattle added just one more very good safety they could be a lot more aggressive with DB blitzing.

In the 2012 draft Seattle had Mark Barron rated extremely highly on their draft board, tied with Bruce Irvin and Luke Kuechly. Mark Barron was a safety, both Kam and Earl were coming off pro-bowl seasons. There was a rumor about moving Kam to LB, but it's equally possible that Seattle was trying to load up with 3 elite safeties to perfect their big nickle defense. Seattle is constantly in nickle defense, it's just that personnel issues this season made them go with a 2 safety version.

Now THIS I could get behind. That would be one hell of a secondary

I think Finley is an awesome player. But we barely use the receiving TE we have now. And we have a good one.

Agreed.

Cheap veteran deal, a last dance for a ring.

And it'll be awesome.

On local (Wisconsin) sports talk radio, hosts were discussing Finley's potential return. There's a general feeling here that the GB staff won't clear him to play following the single-fusion surgery on his C-3 and C-4 vertebrae. Of course Finley 'wants to play'. But, folks here aren't optimistic that he could/will ever be a game-changer again.

i mentioned this in a previous off season thread. glad to hear im not a complete madden head and some knowledgeable folks think this too. i just think allen would be ultra motivated being a vet and sitting in that stink hole in minni for so long. plus i also think his personality would be great to add to the mix. what spot would he be taking, not sure if hes more clemmons or bennet???

i also hope he rocks his mullet, as thats a crucial piece to our d i think we are missing.

Finley - Meh. If there is free agent money we have needs at OG. That being said...

Jared f-ing Allen - that would be excellent.

Our high priced free agents (AKA Wilson, Thomas, Bennett and Sherman) - I wonder how high priced they will be. They are great players but they are playing in a scheme and in an environment where they can really excel. I'm sure as individuals they must realize they have perfect conditions right here.

Liked Finley a lot, but he is one hit past the "you shouldn't play anymore" level.

He would have to be REALLY clean medically, and even then he would be a lower priority for our cap space than retaining some of the other guys we already have.

Dude may play TE, but he is every bit the WR as well. In a perfect world, I would love to see it.

Well that would just be amazing, I love it! Here's hoping you're on to something! :thirishdrinkers:
