There are lots of different variables you could factor into the question but I want to leave it as simple as possible to see the variation in replies.

So simply, who is the best football player on the Seahawks current roster?

I think there are 7 or 8 guys who i could make a legit argument for. Most of them are defensive players of course, but at least one guy on offense belongs in the conversation.

Going into the season I would have said it was Earl Thomas. After 5 weeks I think our best player is Brandon Mebane. He's played great this season.

What say you?

Tough call. Marshawn Lynch would be mine but Browner has done some great stuff.

Mebane has been the core of the run defense though and has a devastating effect on the passing game allowing the ends to get pressure because there is no place to step up to.

Lynch on offense for sure.

Defense is tough for me. I'd go with Mebane, but Clemmons has been huge, as well as Browner and Sherman. Those two could both still get better and that's just scary.

No Chris Clemons mentions yet?

Shitt......

Kam is making a say. Earl never gets thrown at, same with Sherm (except for the Rams game). Browner is explosive at making plays happen.

I want to say Brandon Browner. The guy gets beat sometimes but he is a playmaker in every sense of the word. Also first post wooo

Welcome to .net. The Hawks seem to have quite a following in New Jersey. Lots of you guys around here.

I don't know...........I want it to be Russell Wilson as that will mean that we are having success on offense. But right now I gotta go with Marshawn and Sherm.

On offense it would have to be Lynch. On defense it's pretty much everyone, but I personally think that Clemons has made the biggest impact.

The whole defense it really is hard to pick ONE guy, they're like one big machine.

Too many to chose from IMO but I'd have to say Sherman or Clemons on D and Beastmode on O.

I'll say ET because of what he allows the rest of this defense to do. Plus his speed his ridiculous and I'm still in awe of the hit he put on Bradford and how fast he got there.

This. There is a reason his name is rarely called all game. He quietly shuts down the down field option every game

Richard Sherman and Brandon Mebane are complete standouts on the defense, but this is REALLY hard to say.

The best part of that list is that over half of them are still youngsters and will only get better.

Sherman, but I could probably list 5-10 other players that are very close to his level. Mebane might be my choice later on if he keeps things up.

Lynch.

And noone else is even close.

Sherman and the rest of the DBs are physical but I don't know if there are many, if any players like Lynch in the league. He sets the tone of our entire team. When Lynch is out there dragging 4 guys for a 4 yards, it has to fire up the rest of the team. Lynch may have weeks when he doesn't get the stats (which are becoming more rare nowadays) but every single week you can guarantee he is going drag some defenders for 25% of his yards.

I'm beginning to think it's KJ Wright

but Bobby Wagner is getting exponentially better with every game
It's amazing to think that SIX of our starting defense has less than 2.5 seasons of NFL experience (4 of those less than 1.5!), plus a rookie DE that's got 4.5 sacks already.

Is there anyone in the team NOT contracted through 2013 as well? Leroy Hill?? (who is possibly the "weak" link of the D, which is hardly an insult)??

It's hard to not choose my FAVORITE Hawks, but I don't know if that would be easier.

On Defense? Red Bryant. On O? He may or may not be the best, but Lynch is the most important - maybe on the whole team.

Seattle doesn't need a "best" player.

All the success we are having now on both offense and defense are about how the TEAM plays together. They are playing pretty together right now and I think that's their strength, and their "best".

Lynch because he's the one most on an 'island'. I also can't pick anyone on defense, because they're all so damn impressive and defense is a joint effort. Also, some props need to go to Unger. I have a feeling he's doing a lot of work we don't see on the field with line calls and such.

What?! No love for Ryan? He's the model of consistency on Special teams. He's an important part to this Defense in that he sets them up deep in enemy territory, making those drives long and difficult. More Ryan love, Number 9 all day!

Dunce knows the score!

+1--- Epic run in a player who is becomming beloved by Seattle fans. Shaun Alexander was terrific, but there's something special about Lynch- the toughness and physicality he's displays, something that SA never had.
