  • Reinfeldt is still available and was more talented than Idzik.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    You want to lose your coaches and personnel, it means you're successful.

    Pete and John is all we need, the rest of the staff is just frosting. Look at NE, Belicheat's lost just about every coach 2-3 times over, and they're still on top.

  • When your FO is talented you lose guys to teams that have needs. That Jets cap situation has been horribly managed and is just a bad joke; Idzik is going to be reviled for the things he will need to do.

    Maybe that is the point. How has shown some talents OUTSIDE of figuring out the cap and calculator

    The Jets are some $10-$15 MILLION over the cap going into 2013 from what I read (don't recall the exact number). They probably figured the best guy at figuring out the cap and contract negotiations is what they need.

    I think 99% of sports fan could have told them that when they resigned Sanchez last year.......

    And even if he was, do you think Pete and the Schneid are going to listen to him if he says some dumb shit like "Release Earl Thomas and we'll save 2.6% against the cap in 2016!". They'll tell him to cork his cry hole and go back to playing with his abacus.

    I remember Ruskell saying he and Reinfeldt thought it was prudent to make Hutch a Transition Tag player and some of it was based on Reinfeldt's thinking that guards just weren't worth the type of money Hutch would have gotten. This was around the time Holmgren was catching wind of the change in tags while at the winter meetings.

    I still believe that the NFL should have allowed a re-do of the tagging process after they reached the 11th hour agreement on the CBA back then, which gave teams a nice boost in cap space. Figured that was part of the penny-pinching efforts Ruskell and Reinfeldt opted for.

    In hindsight, Ruskell should have figured on the increase and anticipated the poison pill, though Blue Talon will dispute that last thought.

    The cap guy doesn't make that decision. The cap guy tells the decision makers what the cap status of the team is and how it will be affected in different situations. You can't blame the cap guy for the GM deciding that it was better for our bottom line and worth the risk to hang Hutch out there for the taking. You also can't blame a cap guy for another team using trickery to make a deal. All he is responsible for is giving the proper information related to the cap to the right people. What they do with that information is on them.

    With that said, I don't see this as a huge loss for us. We have lots of room under the cap and not too many guys even eligible to re-up their contracts yet. Because our team is so young, anyone who is brought in now, will have a relatively easy job of it and plenty of time to get used to our situation before things start to get interesting.

    http://www.komonews.com/sports/5756051.html

    Reinfeldt was part of the decision to designate Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson a transition player instead of a franchise player last offseason. Hutchinson signed with Minnesota in free agency after the Vikings included an unprecedented "poison pill" contract provision Seattle could not match.


    I'm not saying I would expect him to do exactly the same thing again, but to me, this signified a guy who didn't understand the value of Hutch to the O-line and team as a whole. I would worry about him having a voice in the FO if he still has blind spots that big.

    I don't think you "want" to lose them. Especially if those guys truly did get you to where you are (we won't know until we see the effect of them being gone). I'd say it's more of an unwanted compliment.

    Look, let us pretend that the whole Hutch mess was all on Reinfeldt...that doesn't change the fact that he is known to be very good at NFL franchise economics. Also, who hasn't screwed something up in their life and then grown from it, there is no way he lets something like that happen on his watch a second time. So this may not be such a bad match.

  • The Vikings pulling the poisen pill routine was unprecedented, guaranteeing that Hutch would be the top payid lineman as part of his contract was an obvious situation to not be able to negotiate a contract with him with Jones here. They knew that. Historically teams did not pull that stuff and Reinfeldt was basing his thoughts on a degree of good sportsmanship between front offices at that time.

    Yes we put him out there and the thought was it should have been the franchise tag after the fact. But the process up to then had been one of good will in negotiations between teams and not undermineing one.

  • The Poison Pill wasn't a new issue in 2005, it just never had been "officially" used in an NFL contract.

    The advent of the poison pill was first introduced to the public by 49ers President Carmen Policy in 1996. The 49ers intended to sign Giants running back Rodney Hampton to an offer sheet with a poison pill that stated Hampton would be "on the field for 70% of the offensive plays over the next 2 seasons." The Giants had drafted Tyrone Wheatley with their first round pick in 1995 but he was largely ineffective in his first season. Since he played the same position as Hampton, the Giants had planned to ease him into the offense with Hampton on the back end of his career. For the Giants to match the 6 year deal, they would be forced to play Hampton in 70% of the plays, thus making the previous year's draft pick of Wheatley a loss. The 49ers later decided to not include the clause, as they felt the NFL would never approve the terms. Their assumption would be proven incorrect following the 2005 season, with the historic offer sheet Steve Hutchinson signed with the Minnesota Vikings.



    Poison Pills. Only the Seahawks would fall for it.

    83, best question I have heard all day.

    My guess is Idzik is there to get them out of the salary cap issues, and is not expected to have say so in personnel. Woody and Rex are handling that.

    Oh right, people should always expect something that has never happened before... :roll:



    For people who need a refresher, poison pills in contracts have a long history. One was used early in the existence of NFL free agency requiring more money from the player's old team than his new team -- after that, such contracts were banned. Since that time, perfectly legal and legitimate poison pills have been commonly used by teams trying to spirit a player away, in the form of front-loaded contracts, trying to leverage the other team's cap situation. That was something the Seahawks were prepared for in the Hutch situation. What they were not prepared for was the never-before-seen use of guarantees, and language involving other players' salaries and arbitrary dates, to effectively do what was previously banned.

    Doesn't matter now. Lesson learned, life goes on. I'm over it. :thirishdrinkers:

  • Schneider/Carroll, then Cable, in descending order of who we can least afford to lose. Everyone else who cares. LMAO at teams thinking that installing Bradley or Bevell as HC is going to change their fortunes. Bradley was here before JS/Pete came in and began making pro-bowlers out of 5th round castoffs on defense, and oddly enough Bradley's defenses weren't so great back then.

    A cap guy doesn't even make the radar.

    I'm ecstatic we haven't heard many rumors about Cable leaving. Okay so pass pro hasn't been outstanding, but Cable seems to be able to fashion a run blocking line no matter who is injured, and after the years where we'd be screwed all season when one lineman would go down, this is euphoria.

    However we need to avoid listening to Cable when it comes to drafting players. The Carpenter/Moffit picks aren't exactly living up to their slots. Well not yet at any rate. I'm assuming those were his suggestion.

  • Bradley: Carroll:: Idzik: Schneider.

    Or that's my guess.

    Oh right, people should always expect something that has never happened before... :roll:

    And again, I don't agree with your review of the history

    The advent of the poison pill was first introduced to the public by 49ers President Carmen Policy in 1996. The 49ers intended to sign Giants running back Rodney Hampton to an offer sheet with a poison pill that stated Hampton would be "on the field for 70% of the offensive plays over the next 2 seasons." The Giants had drafted Tyrone Wheatley with their first round pick in 1995 but he was largely ineffective in his first season. Since he played the same position as Hampton, the Giants had planned to ease him into the offense with Hampton on the back end of his career. For the Giants to match the 6 year deal, they would be forced to play Hampton in 70% of the plays, thus making the previous year's draft pick of Wheatley a loss. The 49ers later decided to not include the clause, as they felt the NFL would never approve the terms. Their assumption would be proven incorrect following the 2005 season, with the historic offer sheet Steve Hutchinson signed with the Minnesota Vikings.


    I agreed with the original call done by Ruskell, though I didn't know of the possibility of a Poison Pill. I was just joking around so I am not sure what is up with the "rolling eyes" icon. Thought we were better than that.

    That wasn't the operative icon.

    Yeah, I know. Blue and I have hung out IRL so the expectations were a little different. With most it just is the way it is. Doesn't mean this is how we all have to act. So yes, I am living in the land of lollipops and rainbows. Now if it was you, I wouldn't even bat an eyebrow. I would expect it.

    Can I take the strait jacket off now?

    No we are good. I was just giving Roland some lip. Next brew is on me if we ever get to another Mariner game. Though you living on the eastern side of the state, that might be tough. :thirishdrinkers:

    Really? I'd love a link cuz I was convinced it was nearly if not all Timmmaaaaay. He made jokes about being 'the guy that lost Hutch' being put on his tombstone and by looking at his drafts it was obvious he saw o-lineman as eminently and consistently replacable.


    http://www.komonews.com/sports/5756051.html

    Reinfeldt was part of the decision to designate Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson a transition player instead of a franchise player last offseason. Hutchinson signed with Minnesota in free agency after the Vikings included an unprecedented "poison pill" contract provision Seattle could not match.


    I'm not saying I would expect him to do exactly the same thing again, but to me, this signified a guy who didn't understand the value of Hutch to the O-line and team as a whole. I would worry about him having a voice in the FO if he still has blind spots that big.


    If anything, this would now be a PLUS for Reinfeldt. He's seen it all. I guarantee his blind spots are small to nonexistent in that area. And as part of a team with a CAPABLE GM, like Schneider, instead of a FOOL like Ruskell, Reinfeldt would probably be a great fit.

    If you were just served with divorce papers by a soon-to-be ex who has a sociopathic personality disorder, wouldn't you want your attorney to be someone who's seen it all, been through the battles, got the scars, and the had the experience and LEARNING on effective strategies on how to keep from having to fight the battles in the first place? When someone like a Reinfeldt goes through a situation like the Hutch thing, you better believe there was some serious education and experience gained.
    It's like that old saying, "when a man with money meets a man with experience, the man with the experience is going to get some money, and the man with money is going to get some experience." Reinfeldt would have "experience" now.

    All that said, I'm sure JS/PC will find someone good as the next man up for that job, Reinfeldt, or whoever.

    The front office is going to have to decide who's worth the money and who they can replace. It would not surprise me if Browner and Chancellor end up casualties in the secondary for instance.
