    Good one, I had totally forgotten about him. He did well in Green Bay for a while too though, didn't he?

  • Those are all good names guys. But again, I'm sorry but given all of what he was supposed to be ... and all that he ultimately wasn't, there is no Seahawk who will ever top the Boz as far as Flash in the Pan is concerned. Most definitely he's the biggest of all time ...

  • Warren Moon. Looked like our QBOTF after his first season in SEA, then played like a 40-something for the rest of his career. Just sad. Whatever happened to that guy?

    He went on to become an absolutely horrible radio announcer.

  • Byron Franklin. I think it was a knee that derailed his brief but promising career. Sat with him in the Kingdome against the Pack...very polite, nice young man.

    To be a flash in the pan, you have to have been good at one point.

    That was one of Holmy's F-ups. I believe it was a pre-season game played in Vancouver that Green put the ball on the carpet. To make an example of what happens to (awesome) RBs that fumble, Holmy let him go and that was just dumb as hell. I remember how he ran thru our awesome Dawg defense like a hot knife thru butter. When we drafted him I knew we had our RBOTF. Instead, he crushed it for the enemy.

  • Michael Boulware for sure. Although, with Pete as his coach, I think he'd be damn good. He was miscast in a scheme that played two deep safeties on almost every play. In the box, playing short zones far more often, his strengths would be amplified and his weaknesses minimized. He might have been as good as Kam, he was a better athlete and had great ball skills to boot. Not as hard a hitter (funny that we're saying that about a former LB) but not bad in his own right.

    Sean Locklear. He was so good in 2005, and below average every year after that. Can't believe we started him as long as we did.

  • Dan McGwire.

    I was going on 20 years old at the time, and was POSITIVE he would be the QBOTF. Plus he looked awesome at 6'8" with the dark visor. Out of the league a few years later, he'll be remembered as the guy who couldn't beat Stan Gelbaugh or Kelly Stouffer for a chance to start.

    Made irrelevant by the above mentioned Rick Mirer.
