1. Sherman faced an old Roddy that has lost a step. When people compare Hopkins to him, they aren't comparing him to the Roddy we see today, they are comparing him to young Roddy who was quite dangerous.
2. Yes I would rather have a Roddy at his peak, rather then a 5-9 175 guy in the Percy Harvin mold. Our offense doesn't always line up with 3 WRs which lowers the chances the kid will get the ball and then cream himself on a 250 pound LB like PH.
3. Russell is a smart QB, he doesn't lock on to anybody and spreads the ball around, further lowering Austin's impact. Add to that we run for 55% of the time and it lowers it that much more.
So yeah, I'd rather have a Roddy clone since we have 2 outside receivers on the field quite often and he could contribute more in our style of offense.
Wouldn't pay Austin first round draft cash for the impact he'd have in Seattle.
