What would the team look like if fans coached the team?

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • I am loving the team that Pete and JS has built here in Seattle with a lot of head scratching moves that turn out perfectly. Seeing all the ballers we have gotten in late rounds of the draft and noticing all the usually negative news associated with players the fans really wanted to go after (Carson Palmer, Albert Hansworth, etc.) made me shudder to think what this team would look like if we had our way:

    QB: Carson Palmer
    HB: Justin Forsett
    WR: TO, Lockett, Crabtree, etc.
    TE: Carlson
    OL: Spencer, etc
    DL: Tapp, Nick Reed, etc.
    LB: Lofa, Kouts
    CB: Josh Wilson, Tru, etc
    SS: Milloy
    FS: Earl

    ...and who knows who else if the drafts went the way the some people had wanted. So I guess what I am trying to say is yay Pete.

  • If we are counting FAs, many on here wanted us to go all-in on Mario Williams and a bunch of us wanted Vonta Leach at FB and Johnathan Joseph at CB when they were available.

  • You mean if decisions were made by majority rule or popular "concensus"? We'd be 0-16 every year. Take it to the bank.

  • Taco Wallace would be starting WR. Mike Teel would be right there pushing Carson Palmer.

  • LOL…
    Not sure if the players would do it, but if the FANs were in control NO apposing QB would ever complete a pass and NO apposing RB would gain a yard. Every offensive series would be a 3 and out

    Meanwhile our starting QB (be he the original starter or the backup coming off the bench) would complete every pass and all the RBs would rush for somewhere between 100 to 300 yards a game.

    Of course that would be impossible because every punt return would be ran back for a TD… ;)

  • QB: Anyone but the current starter
    HB: Someone younger
    WR:A bunch of small, slow white guys picked in the late rounds to compare to Largent
    TE: The guy you made in Madden
    OL: 5 huge road graders that are also small and quick for zone blocking
    DL: Doesn't matter as long as Mayock says they are "high motor"
    LB: Isiah Kacyvenski
    CB: Definitely no one from the CFL, LMAO
    SS: Someone strong, obviously
    FS: Anyone that can hit like Kenny Easley and has the range of Ed Reed. Not picky.

  • We'd have zero picks left due to the incessant trades to move up in the draft and we'd have all new coordinators every few weeks.

    Wait you said coached? They'd be pretty much left to rely on their natural talent and my madden playbook.

  • There is no doubt in my mind that the starting RB for the last 4-5 years would have been Jesse Lumsden.

    I can't remember anyone ever get as much love on this board than him. EVER

  • We would play man and blitz every down. The DC would be shot whenever we tried to play zone. And don't even be thinking about no stinking 3-man rush, you hosers!

    We would pass every down, then get to try all 3 downs again running. Which ever had the best results would count for our series. Rinse and repeat. Profit!

  • Also, who ever the offense coordinator was he would never be allowed to run a draw on 3rd and long.

  • I'm surprised at all of you.

    If the fans ran this team, it would be comprised of street FA's and cast offs because we'd be cutting half the team every week and signing guys on our practice squad to long term lucrative deals.

    Duh.

    I think that would be Jake Locker at QB, but I do get your drift…

  • The team would be comprised almost entirely of players from the PAC 12 and the SEC. Other conferences need not apply unless they have once-in-a-lifetime talent.
