    You could have 5 QB's on the roster and nobody will be able to do what Wilson can do...deal with it!

    OR...just cut Wilson now and you won't have to get over the fact that it is Wilson's way or NO WAY!

    No, I think it was trading Flynn for Tjack then trade Tjack and Kearse for Megatron and Suh.

  • I'm pretty sure Jackson is a free agent, so you wouldn't need to trade anybody.

  • You want to trade Flynn straight up for Jackson?

    Aside from Flynn being a better QB than Jackson, and aside from Flynn being a better fit for Carroll's philosophy (doesn't turn the ball over on a regular basis), Flynn just doesn't have the arm that Buffalo wants. Jackson is a better scheme fit for them.

  • What can tony G do that we didn't get out of Miller? We don't pass that much as it is.

    TJ? Why? What did he do that was so impressive ? Throw 2:1 INTs to TDs?

    I would go with another rookie I like the kid out of Oklahoma if I could get him

    Matt Moore in Miami would have a closer skill set to Wilson that Flynn

  • NOPE. TJ....No, No, No.....Gonzalez?....NO, we could use a WR that gets seperation.

    I just don't get the trading Flynn thing. Money?

    No. We have to maintain a decent option at backup QB, and Jackson is not that.

    Then why is TJ having such a hard time hanging on to their third QB spot? I never said a straight up trade. TJ is mobile but he would never see the field unless we are up three TD's in the last five mins. He would only be a clipboard jockey. I don't know if Buffalo would need Flynn or if he would be a good fit for them. They gave up Lynch so I don't believe they are the brightest bulbs on the tree. They DID take Jackson.

    Look.... All this whining about defense is stupid. We have the lowest scored upon defense in the NFL.

    What we do not have is the highest scoring offense. Tony is clutch. Tony is an animal in te redzone. Tony will catch a football in the first quarter as well as the last most desperate 30 seconds we could get ourselves into.

  • Dude, we don't need Tony. Didn't need him last year and don't this year either.

    We lack a true speed WR, is that hard to comprehend?

    We also need help rushing the passer, which our coaching staff has said is a priority.

    It isn't rocket science, and we definitely do not need to bring retreads into the fold. This is about winning a championship.

    I dissagree "Dude". We need a quick kick start to our offense with short passes ...until the defenses show their hands on the long stuff. Miller isn't enough. He's great but two like him would be better in the first two quarters. Sometimes we just can't get Lynch a hole in the early going. This is just an option not yet explored.


    Must I repeat..we led the league in defense scoring. That was with the "rushers" we already have.


    We need to score more points in the first halves of games.

    The OP isn't being rational at all. Gonzalez has given no indication that he wants to change teams, only that he's done playing football. If Gonzalez were to come back I figure he would go back to Atlanta, to say he has a better chance of winning a ring here when they just beat us in the playoffs is silly.

    I'm not saying that I think Atlanta is closer to a super bowl then we are but from his perspective, with Matt Ryan and two better WR's than we have, I doubt he feels like he can't win a ring in Atlanta.

    Good grief!! I'm just talkin a warm body and Buffalo needs a QB.

    I'm just exploring getting his cap money back. There is no "Love" for TJ. If anything annymosity. I never want to see him in a Seahawk uniform again..

    Who do you guys think can step in for Wilson anyway..???

    There is NO ONE! What he does is so unique that what "reality" we really have to adjust to is that all our eggs are in Wilson's basket.

    I'm down with that. I'm all in. It's Wilson till the wheels come off!

    Wilson with Gonzales and Miller book ends with Rice and Tate to pass to...

    It wouldn't even be fair to the rest of the NFL.

    They could just save all the trouble and hand us the Lombardi trophy for 2014.


    Every time somebody posts about a backup to replace Flynn somebody always brings up Jackson. How about this. Bring in a talented young guy that can develop? I'm not talking a QB that is on par with RW, that's just too much to wish for, but a guy that if, while holding down the backup spot, can develop good enough to get us something in return down the road. You'll never have that with Jackson.

    That is absolutely an option. Most teams approach their backup as either a vet who can go .500 while your starter is out, or a developmental guy (assuming you only keep two).
    I think many fans wishing that this offseason is more about bringing in contributors rather than developmental guys.

    Did you have a QB in mind that you would like to target?

    My choice is Matt Moore at Miami. Cap friendly started the last year of a 2 yr 5 mil deal last year, Out of Oregon State and a youngish vet at 28. Moves well and I think would be a good fit.

  • You're all just a buncha YO-YO's! OP is HELLA smart! He has it all figured out! All we need to do to win it all is sign Tony Gonzalles! Couple that with MY genius plan to go back in time and kidnap a 25 year old Warren Sapp to play 3-tech DT and train a donkey to kick field goals, we'll be unstopable! UNSTOPABLE!!!

    Because we all knew that the 3rd Rd 5'11 QB was going to break out?

    Follow the timeline:

    1. Flynn Signed
    2. Russell Drafted
    3. QB Competition
    4. Tjack traded BEFORE the season even started.

    Hind-site is 20/20.

    No one is saying Tjack is the starter, but he is a good value as a backup coupled with the money invested in Flynn when we are going to need to save our bucks to sign our other underpaid breakout players.

    Sorry, I should have added that I was being sarcastic. I do think T-Jack is a solid backup and would love to have him back. But if money was not an issue I would rather have Flynn.

  • I'd give Gonzalez about a 3% chance of ever being a Seahawk, but if he went back to Atlanta thinking they have a chance, he'd be making a mistake. They are a team with a great passing offense and nothing else, and their 13-3 season came with one of the easiest SoS of any team in the NFL.

    New Orleans isn't going to be 7-9 next season. Tampa will probably continue improving. Carolina finally looked like the hyped preseason pick in the second half of the season when both Newton and the Panthers defense went on a tear. The NFC South could rival the NFC West and NFC North as the toughest division in the NFL next year.

    If Atlanta does make it back in the playoffs, it is very unlikely it will be with another 13-3 record. Especially since they had a completely unsustainable record in close games last year.
