  • This is the poster the NFL decided to roll out for it's 100th year anniversary. Bosworth for the Hawks? WTF?.......and they made him look like an albino. Great job NFL.

  • Nice 4th grade project, to be honest. 4th graders have a bit more creative talent than they used to.

    Dan Marino looks a bit like the Einhorn version of Finkle but with lighter hair, and the two Tom Bradys (before and after) are a nice touch.

    Also, putting both Ray Lewis and Michael Vick in the poster is a criminally underrated move.

    Yeah, MANY questionable choices. Why even put guys like Vick and Bosworth in the poster? What could possibly be the rationale?

    And of course Brady had to be front and center.......cause nothing NFL fans outside of NE love more than having the Patriots shoved down our throats at every possible turn.

  • I think the 2nd Tom Brady you’re referring to is supposed to be Jim Kelly. This poster is, nonetheless, ridiculous . How you don’t have Largent, Tez, Big Walt or Russ as the face of the Hawks is a joke.

    Naw, number 56 is the Bills player.

    And number 33 is old school Cardinals, which makes me wonder why they also have Larry Fitzgerald in the picture.

  • If I were making a list of the Seahawks who should be representing the team on the poster, The Box would be way, way down the list.

  • Nice to see Rice make it over Montana, which is the correct decision.

    Cunningham over White is a weird decision.

    This is clearly a homage to the late 80s/early 90s cartoon style. It's nice. I like it.

    Bosworth is on there because he has a distinctive look. Honestly as a non-Hawks fan save for Alexander he's probably the only Seahawk not from this era that I could identify by picture alone. It's not that complicated.

    LOL at caring about this poster tho.

    If you want to learn how to not take this too seriously, the Steelers have won six super bowls and for them it's Juju Smith Schuster :lol: .

  • hmm. no offense to anyone but some people seem to just love to complain. its a fun poster, i was looking for the seahawk player and when i saw boz i was like "oh cool, didnt think anyone besides hawk fans even knew who he was"

    its not meant to pick the best player on each team. i think the animations and faces are awesome. sweet old haircuts and head gear...personalities was the big key i think. pretty sweet

    Nicely done :lol:

    Should have put Deion in the Falcon jersey, way more deserving Cowgirls to choose from. Hard to argue with Lewis even with the bloody suit issues.

  • Bosworth himself tweeted about this, stating "understand not the obvious choice from so many great @seahawks part/present"....... "proud to know once a hawk always a hawk".
    I think he understands it should have been Largent.
    They are cartoon characters. Who was THE biggest "character" on the Hawks? BOZ was.

    Biggest "character?" I'd put Marshawn Lynch above Boz for both that and for being on the poster. Boz just bragged and then couldn't deliver when his body gave out. Lynch gave us drama (of the good kind) both on and off the field. Should have been Largent, but if we're talking "characters.," then Lynch takes it.

    C'mon man, Lynch is not only distinctive looking, but he's far more well known especially if they're going after a younger demo with this poster............which obviously they are if they're putting guys on here like Kamara, Mahomes, Vick and Ladainian Tomlinson over better players on those teams.

    Boz is just a terrible choice. Largent, Lynch, Russell, Sherman, Kam, Jacob Green, Easley.......I could go on and on over who should be ahead of him for the Hawks.

    You seriously didn't think anyone besides Hawk fans knew who Boz was? Relatively speaking considering the changes to the media, he might be the most famous college football player ever.

    Lol 56 is LT mate. Please don’t further the stereotype that 12’s came into existence in 2012 hehehe. Just kidding.


    But seriously, 56 is a Giant. Probably the best pass rushing OLB that ever lived. And 12 on the righr is Kelly. One per team.

    Oh and 33 is Sammy Baugh of the Redskins.

    Yeah, sure, I have no problem with saying Lynch should be on there.

    I just don't really think there's much to any of this.

    If we're going to be debating over who to include, the Steelers have won five Super Bowls, have as many distinctive players as anybody, and they put JuJu Smitch Schuster on there. :lol:

    Any complaint anyone wants to make has to be in the context of that. :D

    Makes you wonder if they had some brand/licensing/approval issues with some of the more famous players.

    Does the NFL need Lynch's approval post retirement for them to use his likeness? Or other famous retired players? I get that they don't need approval if the player's currently under their control, but after? Idk, it'd be interesting to find out.

    Cause ain't no way the people who put this poster together were like "hey I know for the Steelers, JuJu Smith Shuster! Yeah that's who the Steeler fans would want!"

    I know. I'm just ragging on how bad the poster is. I mean, I still haven't figured out who #55 is for the Broncos, and they have two Jets #12 there - Randall Cunningham and that other quarterback.
