Exactly. I mean, look who our new coach is now. Hollywood Pete Carroll took one look at Hass and decided we needed an upgrade!

Hahaha, when I read that I heard Bill Murray's voice. Too funny

I guess I'll take a wait and see approach. If he plays well, good trade, if not... well it wasn't.

It's all up to Whitehurst to live up to it. We have no idea if it was a good value or not at this point because we are paying for his potential.

Let's see what happens.

We moved from 10 to 17 in the first round and got a 7th for Hasselbeck. So, it's probably comparable on the point chart.

However: our coach and GM at the time watched Hasselbeck practice for at least a year and had pretty huge intel on him. What can our staff really know about Whitehurst? I guess we can't know.

One thing about Whitehurst: he's a tough SOB. I remember the first preseason game in San Diego last year when the Chargers had one last chance to drive down and win the game. The Hawks were blitzing on every play and Whitehurst kept getting the crap beat out of him every single time he dropped back to pass. But he'd get back up and call another play like nothing had happened. Looked pretty good on that drive, though of course it was against our 3rd stringers.

I don't mind that we traded for him but despise the fact that we dropped 20 spots in the second round and traded next year's 3rd. I've never been a fan of Carroll and Schneider and so far they are doin nothing to change my opinion.


That's the only part of your post that I saw. :34853_doh:

The only thing that was going to make a first round pick for Marshall even somewhat palatable was that we still had that number 40 pick so close to the first round, now that is gone. Who is Whitehurst going to throw too? Housh will be doubled, Branch will be broken and Deon needs more game experience. If we keep this same horrendous line even Carlson is going to be gone as a target as well because he'll be sitting back trying to help keep the QB upright.

Now San Diego can move to pick up Jahvid Best like they wanted. I almost feel like this is a big "FU" from Pete Carroll for WA State taking Sark and ruining his year this past year and now he's out to stick it to the state's most beloved team.

Granted, it's from his college days, but he seems to have good mobility for his size and a pretty quick release. I'm not a fan of the move, but i'll remain hopeful that he turns out to be really good.

Can any of our resident scouts provide better analysis of his game?

Oh, ya, you're right. My bad. Hass was probably more expensive then.

However, if we had the option of moving back from 6 to 17, I'd like that better than 40-60.

and we might even be in position to take Locker, because we'll probably suck it up mightily again this year.

Not getting Marshall isn't really the end of the world, and who knows? Maybe on draft day Denver will realize the #60 is the best offer they can get. Anyways, having the 6 and the 14 gives us a ton of flexibility, so I'm just not going to panic for now.

You know, 'SC to San Diego is really not that far. Maybe Pete Carroll saw more of Whitehurst than we can ever know.

All I know for sure is, Whitehurst is apparently now a Seahawk. That means he's got my 100% support. And really, all we gave up was next year's 3rd? I don't have that much of a problem with it.

We did. We moved down from 10 to 17 and gave up a 3rd. Based on the value chart, we gave up the #33 pick for Hass.

Indeed. I corrected, ^above^, but this thread's like wild fire.

Moving from 40 to 60 in this draft seems huge to me. Really huge. I loved that high 2nd round pick--at 60, guys like Lamarr Houston, Branond Ghee and Chad Jones are likely gone.

Still sitting here a bit shell shocked that we may be looking at the successor starting QB in Seattle with Charlie Whitehurst. Of course there are tons of question marks - but when you really think about it - this is a strong and sound move for the Seahawks.

First - take a look at the other three teams in our division:
- Alex Smith - HUGE contract, nothing to show for it
- Matt Leinart - HUGE contract, nothing to show for it
- Sam Bradford - will be a HUGE contract, and has NO experience

At least with this move, you are taking a very well calculated risk that Charlie Whitehurst could be your heir apparent without screwing up your salary structure and you can use those picks you have left to fill some gaping holes. I think it's obvious that Matt Hasselbeck is not in competition for the #1, but one injury and/or ripe opportunity for a substitution to CW is forthcoming. Hence the VERY logical reasoning to dump Seneca Wallace in favor of finding a more future-proof backup.

Anyway, just thoughts...

I know what you mean, but the 2 first rounders softens the blow quite a bit for me. Thats still 3 picks in the top 60. We will find 3 good prospects in 2 rounds

Good stuff, but Matt Leinart had a Super Bowl QB to sit behind, and Alex Smith has Rocky Bernard to thank for his career struggles. ;)

I guess it seems to be a fair deal. Just appears we got completely pilfered at first look. I don't think I understand the, next year a 3 round.... equals a 4th round today deal, but that seems to hinge on us getting better or worse. Not so matter of fact.
He better breakout like Schaub did. He isn't 23, he will be 28 when the season starts.

I don't think you can count either Smith or Leinart out yet. Smith is only 25 and made some strides last season. Leinart has been playing behind Warner his entire career. Both could still pan out.

I think Hass is in very real competition for #1.

I'm aslo glad we probably won't be drafting Jimmy Clausen. This move, if for no other reason, has me stoked.

Guys like Hardesty are looking a lot better for the hawks now that we are at 60.

This deal is an act out of desperation, IMO. SD came away the winners and the Seahawks lost. The Seahawks gave up too much. They should have parted with 4th rd this year and 2nd rounder next year. Instead they move down 20 spots which doesn't make the choice attractive for Denver re: Marshall. There's a big difference between #40 pick and 60. Also it takes them out of many options - Ryan Matthews, Jahvid Best, Damian Williams, etc may not be there at #60 (as mentioned previously by others). I guess they got the QB they wanted hopefully he pans out.

I'm aslo glad we probably won't be drafting Jimmy Clausen.


Agreed. This team's luck with 1st Rd QB's has been abysmal over it's history... I even bought a Rick Mirer jersey. The shame.

Yeah, you don't sound like a "complete doucher" at all...

Okay. Now let's trade him to Denver for Marshall.

I believe he sees it as bad...


He's also against drafting Clausen and Bradford with the #6 or #14 picks. In that sense, if picking up Whitehurst changes that philisophy, it's good. However, the Seahawks got mauled in this deal. They gave up too much for Whitehurst. Not a good start, Schneider, Carroll, and Co.

Still loads of options at #60. Ben Tate, Major Wright, Reshad Jones, Corey Wootton... etc etc.

Not the end of the world unless you really wanted Marshall without spending 6 or 14.

If we trade Sims, I hope we net a third, doesn't Cleveland have a bunch of them?
