Who's your most dissapointing player?
Thu Jan 03, 2013 11:35 pm
  • What player did you have high expectations for that never really lived up to your standards? For me, it would have to be James Carpenter. I'm not dissapointed in his performance, I'm just very dissapointed that he is CONSTANTLY injured. Same with Thurmond. Both play great ball when they're in there though!

  • Good question, I'd have to go with Thurmond. The guy has talent obviously, but flat out RARELY sees the field.

  • I really hope we don't let him go because of his injuries. I think he's to good of a talent to release. I would almost take him over Browner when you consider the amount of penalties Browner commits due to how big snd physical he is.

  • Brandon Browner for being a dumbass and missing 4 games for PED...I know we won those games but now that we got him back I'm skeptical that he can come back after a month off and play at the level he was playing at before his suspension...I'm hoping he can return and play without a hitch because we'll need him at full capacity for this playoff run.

    If we're talking about any Seahawks team, I'm going with Mike Williams. He was disappointing a few years ago.

    This year I would say Carpenter though. I wonder if he will ever get and stay healthy.

    That's a disappointment based on last year, not this year. In the 2012 season, Browner has had only 6 penalties in 12 games; that's .5 per game. Hardly can be called a lot.

  • I'm disappointed in Rice. For the talent and body of a #1 WR, he doesn't show up in the game enough. A few times here and there, yes, but not consistently week in and week out.

  • Jason Jones, really thought he'd be a huge addition to our interrior pass rush. Glad this is a great year for D Line in the draft. Kipe has 12 DE/DT's in his top 25. It's also a decent year for big 2nd-3rd round WR's and we could use one of those too

    True. Never saw that stat. Now I'm not so anti Browner. I used to not like him, thinking he's a penalty machine. Glad you could open my eyes.

  • Baldwin. After the year he had last year, I was hoping he'd be at least as effective, and remain our 3rd down clutch receiver.

  • Carp - injuries, but highly, highly talented @ LG.
    Moffitt - fairly big, but not as powerful as weight would indicate in the run game. Still a good angle/wall off blocker.
    Lockette - As physically talented as there is, but raw and inconsistent.
    Flynn - Maybe an odd choice, but I actually still think he can't start in this league. Obviously not here with a star rook.
    Moore - Has the makings of a nice pass catching TE as a former WR. Dropped balls here. Went to PHI and dropped the game winning TD pass of their last game.

    Jason Jones - Not as explosive off the snap as I saw at TEN. Good player, but not worth a big contract. Don't think he'll require one for another year or two though.
    Clinton McDonald - We have some of our biggest troubles in run D when he's in for Mebane @ 1 tech. Not a stout as we saw in TC. Gets blown off the LOS too often.
    Jaye Howard - Has combine measurables that are as good as you want from a DT. Quick, fairly fast with a 4.7 40, can anchor, and even take on a double team sometimes. That was watching Florida film though and he hasn't touched the field hardly at all here
    Leroy Hill - Still a solid player. Injuries and the speed of some of his backups make him look a step slower. He's being challenged. Again, still a solid player though. If he switches to SLB he's better than many players in the league at that position. With how we shift strong side sometimes he ends up playing SLB up on the LOS for us anyway just like Wright does. Depends on time allowed and the play call.
    Toomer - kid has talent through the roof. Rushed the passer a lot from DE as well as LB. 4.4 and a 40 some odd vert. Shows explosion. Couldn't get his responsibilities down and we already have 3 other 4.4 LBs on the team. Really hope he sticks and makes himself useful next year.
    Guy/Shead - I think Johnson is a good player and made the decision for everyone, but I was hoping either Guy or Shead could use their prototypical size/speed combination in that 3rd safety role. Again though, Johnson stepped up and took it before the rooks knew what was going on.
    Thurmond - getting injured again is actually what I expected, but still disappointed.
    Tru - He's been picked on at various times of the year. Some times he's been a step slow and sometimes he's been mentally beat whether it be not locating the ball or turning his hips late. I'm hoping this is his last season after a SB win. Time to hang it up, man. Hate to say it, but....


    Some of these aren't actually "disappointments" per se, but made note of it anyway.

  • How can you not like Browner regardless of if he gets penalized alot?? That makes no sense to me. Watch him play. ..

    Jason Jones, Braylon, and in a different sense of the word, Earl Thomas. He's dropped SO many potential INTs... Yes he's been great but he had enough opportunities to take that next step to truly elite, unbelievable game changer, #1 safety in the league hands down etc. He's even admitted in a number of different interviews I've heard that he could of had 8 or 9 picks. I truly thought this year was going to be an insanely productive year for him. Just didn't happen. .. but obviously his play had still been fantastic. I might be the only one in this position but I just love the guy and have such high expectations for him.

    Maybe I shouldn't have phrased it that way. I think Browner, I really think he's a great CB obviousley. I'm just still a little bitter from all his penalties from last year. After looking at the stats, he's done a great job keeping the penalties low.

  • I'd say Trufant, but my expectations were probably higher than they should have been due to my ignorance. As someone with a pretty limited knowledge of the Xs and Os and not being someone who has played the game in any serious way (unless Joe Montana Sports Talk Football counts), I didn't realize how different playing in the slot is from playing outside, and I assumed moving a decent outside corner to the slot would be a huge coup for us, making our secondary officially insane. I'm still disappointed in him, but I think that a lot of it was unnecessarily inflated expectations.

    Jaye Howard or Thurmond for me. If Howard had turned out to be what was hoped for he'd be a huge asset to the team right now, though there's still time for him to turn around in the future, and Thurmond playing one game before getting hurt again is a huge bummer, definitely could've given our pass defense the huge bump I was hoping for from Trufant initially if he had stayed healthy. Not Walter's fault, but that doesn't console me too much.

  • Evan Moore by a country mile. Come on guys, how did so many of you miss this one?

    If I based this off of the 90 players that were on the roster in early August, I'd say Terrell Owens. At first I thought it was a joke when Seattle signed him, but then I saw the his workout footage and was really impressed with how well he held up. He seemed like a very strong candidate for comeback player of the year (at the time) and Seattle needed a big power WR like him. For about a week I fully expected him to be a roster lock. He ended up being among the first round of cuts, and that was after having one of the worst pre-season performances I'd ever seen.

    I actually really liked Rice this season. He stayed mostly healthy in a year where he took some brutal hits. He was our #1 WR for the season statistically. And when he wasn't 100% in the final two games, it had a big impact on Wilson's ability to find targets quickly.

  • Thurmond probably. If he was healthy, even Brady or Godgers would be afraid to throw. 3 elite cornerbacks (I truly believe Thurmond can be elite) with elite safeties, and it's probably the best secondary league has ever seen.

  • I can't believe I'm seeing Rice's name. Dude was huge for us this year. Game winning catches in both the Patriots and Bears games. He took a bunch of brutal hits this year and laid out on the line for us time and time again, so I'm OK with his relative inactivity the past two games.

    I'm most disappointed in Sherman. I expected him to have more interceptions. :P

    (Or I'm most disappointed in Jason Jones. Since he's been gone, I feel like our pass rush has really suffered. Baldwin would also be on this list for regular receivers. And Flynn was a huge disappointment as T-Sizzle mentioned, but moreso because his contract is now a bit of an albatross on the team's neck.)

  • Im going Moffitt, I expected a lot of things with him and Carp, Carp has had some injuries, but the most part Moffitt has been healthy and to lose your position to a rookie who's never played the position before is very dissapointing.

    I think it is more or less because he didn't lose the position per se, he just got beat out (injury probably helped). I was hopeful RW was our future cause I was hoping we would draft him, but man I think all of us are just happy as hell we have a QBOTF.

  • I'm sorry, but Miller?

    You're criticizing a guy for not having the offensive stat based production you expect because the coaching staff needs him to block?

    If you want to be disappointed in that, be disappointed in the coaching or OL that makes it necessary for Miller to block as much as he does.

    Miller is arguably the best blocking TE in the league, without him our run heavy offense doesn't perform as well. Ask any of the coaches and they don't hesitate to sing his praises.

    Carpenter is hands down the biggest disappointment. Not all his fault, he should have never been drafted in the first round which raised the expectations. But anytime a first rounder is drafted to be a cornerstone tackle and is immediately moved to guard because he can't hack it, and can't even start there either = disappointment.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.
