  • The guy can't start over a 7th round d lineman that was horrid today. He can't even be active so what's the deal, is he that bad?

    for reals yo! he obviously skips practice to work on his cameo appearances.
    I am a firm believer in luck, and I found that the harder I work the more I have of it.

    Yes. I am not happy so much. I am too seriously! .. Kap is not a great leader period!! Hurt my heart and s**t my painfully. ..

  • Tweeters claim that Moffitt's work ethic is something the coaches frown on. Who knows but he was a healthy scratch from all indications.

  • It is probably more a maturity issue with Mofitt. He is a smart, fun-loving guy but maybe they want him to become like the guy in Full-Metal Jacket. Hope he doesn't take Cable out prior to terminating himself.

  • I think Moffit is being scrubbed because he hasn't taken it all seriously yet...
    He's the class clown, he thinks he's cute...
    This guy could be a monster if he worked as hard at football, as he does trying to be clever...
    I hope Carp can come back and stay healthy next year...
    He looks 'Road Graderish' when healthy.

  • I'm a big fan of Moffitt's. Hopefully he's back for the playoffs. He's been our rabbit's foot this season. Whenever he's started, we seem to have a big game running the ball. I'm hoping that the team has just been taking it easy on him, with his injury history and all, and using the time to allow Sweezy the opportunity to develop.

    I haven't given up on John just yet. And he's definitely not garbage.

  • Best guess I have is that Moffitt is still not 100% after assorted injuries and rehab and loss of time and fitness, maybe Moffitt's 85-90%, and Sweezy is healthy and simply out-working Moffitt. Recall Moffitt is still coming back from MCL knee surgery, and then had his elbow torn up earlier this season. Sweezy may already be a better run-blocker. Obviously the coaches think Sweezy gives the team as good or better chance to win, and if it's a wash, they'd rather get the young guy the experience. So now Sweezy at 100% is even with or better than Moffitt at 90%. Sweezy had a nice game against the Niners last week. I noticed on one of Lynch's longer runs today, Sweezy was hustling his ass down the field, and was in position to make a springing block if the play went a little differently. It was, "Wow, there's an OL downfield on that play??!! Sweezy!!"

    It does seem like Moffitt is a better pass blocker, or for sure, is better at the reads and reactions needed as part of the OL unit. But the coaches' call is Sweezy... "Always Compete", and Sweezy wins. Isn't it great to have OL depth??!!
    I tend to doubt that Moffitt is in any doghouse. I wouldn't be surprised if the team is also wanting to save wear and tear on him to have him closer to 100% if he's needed due to other injuries.

    The NFC West blog said this: 'Moffitt, a former starter, is inactive for a second consecutive week. The team has decided it's better off with rookie seventh-round choice J.R. Sweezy in the lineup at right guard. Sweezy started in Week 1 and again against San Francisco last week."

    There are other OL in the mix who could also step in, though if Sweezy got injured, I'm not sure who would step in. Omiyale? Wasn't McQuistan already playing the other guard spot?

    Has anyone noticed if Sweezy plays on special teams much, and if he's effective there?

    It will be interesting to see if Moffitt is activated for the Redskins playoff game. My bet is YES.

    Incorrect.

    There are SOME here speculating, but not "everyone." You have no proof as to whether he takes his job seriously or not. Which doesn't change the fact that your comment is ridiculous.

  • Calling him garbage is just stupid, I'd love for him to be further along but Sweezy is an awesome run blocker. He had an amazing block last week where he cut down Pat Willis on Lynch's TD run.

    Sweezy and Giac got switched up on the sack in the second half where Long went untouched but I think he's going to get better. I think the Hawks have a really solid OL, just need one of our OG's to step up, whether that's Carp, or Moffit, I don't care who. I wonder if they draft one in the mid-rounds? Keep the competition going.

  • After yesterday's O-Line performance .... I don't care what adjustments/changes that need to be made, I just don't want to see our QB getting smashed like that again. That looked like the seahawks O-Line from last year/ early this season. Bring on the pass-pro.

    [x] Tate
    [x] Bevell

    Safe to add him to the list?

  • Every season I put together my own Seahawks calendar for the following years (the ones sold by the team suck for the most part), so I scour tons of pics every season. I don't really pay attention to the offensive linemen in pictures until we make the playoffs, so I can put together a sweet screen saver such as:

    Image

    This season, when I started looking at the Lynch pictures, I was noticing a trend of Moffitt being in a lot of the touch down run photos. So, when I started looking for the offensive lines pictures, it wasn't surprising that Moffitt was there opening a lot of the holes for Lynch. Moffitt is no where near garbage.

  • I think people need a whipping boy just to stir up conversation, So can we just plan it out so we can all be on the same page.
    So if its moffit this week. who will it be next? Here are some suggestions in all fun, ofcourse.
    Wilson - why does he always jump when he passes mid to short routes.
    Unger.... he isn't taking it seriously, he hasn't shaved since September. and hikes the ball to the right ALWAYS. Never left.
    Lynch... not eating skittles much lately.
    Rice... where has he been not many catches lately. I think he has an offer form san fran.
    Mike rob..... those videos are defiantly affecting his ability to catch that screen and get yards.
    Punter..getting sick... wtf..... unacceptable.
    Kicker... he isn't trying should be able to hit from 60 always in the snow.
    Lets not forget the coaches.
    I seen ken Norton staring at the scoreboard and NOT the game..... while we were on defense.. pete threw his gum at him. he is gonna be gone.
    Tom cable should watch his weight, he gonna have a heart attack, that can't be good for our team.
    breno... Get a bigger helmet, he is TRYING to get hurt.

    lol I can't think of any more quick ones .heheh
    But we do need one.. so .net mods plan it out. k lol
