Charlie Whitehurst trade looking pretty good now

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • That trade resulted in us somehow getting Golden Tate. Plus he got us in to the playoffs where we hosed the 'Aints :)

  • Remember when people were clamoring for us to cut Tate in the 2011 preseason finale?

    Idiots....

  • I would have at least considered cutting Tate early in 2011. He really was horrible back then. He couldn't block, he couldn't get open, he'd run backwards 5-10 yards after catching the football. He was an embarrassment. He's obviously the complete opposite of that player now. I have to give the coaching staff props for that. If there was ever a guy who screamed "lost cause", it was a young Golden Tate.

    I'd have to think about it a bit, but he might get my vote for the most improved Seahawk I've ever seen. Max Unger would be in the running too.

  • I don't know, we had the 40th Pick that year, we could've easily taken Tate with that pick had we not did that trade.

    That plus we still lost a 3rd rounder. And it's not like CW carried the team on his back against the Rams.

    In hindsight, I am so glad we won that game against the Rams though. Not just because of the Beastquake- but because if Seattle is picking 8th overall they would have likely drafted Blaine Gabbert. Gabbert was JS's #1 QB that year.

  • By "got us into the playoffs" you mean somehow managed not to cause us to miss the playoffs.

  • Charlie had nothing to do with it so "somehow" just seems like an excuse of no facts somehow lol

    I would say the only good thing he did for our club was buy us time to Get RW
