Looks like Leroy Hill is for sure gone now

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13

  • Ah, love me some Leroy Hill. One of my favorite Hawks from the last decade. Not always the best decisions off the field but you knew he would bust his ass and thump some people on the field.

    And Marcus Trufant is the last survivor from the Super Bowl team. (although officially he's not on the team at the moment either since he's a free agent).

  • Ah, Leroy. It's been fun.

    Unrelated, but I see that Toomer is on the roster. I thought someone just posted yesterday that he had been cut?

  • I'm going to miss Leroy and his 1 year deals. He was always worth 1 good thread per year on. NET after his yearly off-season arrest. Good times.

  • RIP Leroy. You were undoubtedly the seahawks cockroach of the past several years. And I mean that in the best way possible.

  • Seatown81's ownership of a LeRoy Hill jersey is the sole reason I have not stomped on him in 4 states.

    3 states and a province, technically.

  • Isn't 56 a weird number for a DE? I am not familiar with the numbering sytems but it seems as if most DE's are in the 90's or 70's.

    Chike disagrees with you.
    I am a firm believer in luck, and I found that the harder I work the more I have of it.

    Chike Okeofor wore 56 at DE before Leroy Hill got the number. Chris Doleman is another all time great DE who wore 56.

  • According to http://www.jt-sw.com/football/pro/index ... -jers-nums

    numbers 50-59 are for LB's, so is Avril going to play Stronside LB for us and move KJ to MLB and Wagner to WLB? That would beef up pur run D, at least size wise.

    Here's a good numbering system resource. Also, Bruce is #51.

    Thanks. Yeah I wasn't even thinking of Irvin. Great point.

  • Don't read anything into the numbers as regards position. When it come to D-Line it's pretty useless.

    Jesus does this stuff never end, there is a reason Wagner is MLB, he was in the running for DROTY there, he's much better at run vs pass. Thats kind of like saying were moving Wilson to Slot since OBO is gone so Percy can be a duel threat as a QB/RB.

    I know. :laugh: It seems that every time we get a player that excels at a position, somebody crawls out of the wookwork and says, well if he was good there, he'd be even better at this position, because.....well, he looks like he should play there.

    Sometimes I wonder if fans pick players' positions by hair color or facial hair or shoe size or something.

  • Hill is the only UFA not listed on the Seahawks.com roster. At this point Patrick Chukwurah has a better shot at coming back.

    That's a key point here. I'd guess our strategy is going to go even more in this direction, with guys being more versatile and interchangeable. They're like Legos. Plus, when you try to step on them, it's gonna hurt like hell.

    LMAO

    Everyday in my house: "how many times do I have to tell you to put these fricking Legos away when you're done?!?!?"

    I really like what we're doing with these pick-ups. The guys we're getting are the guys we targeted specifically for their athleticism and versatility. At some point we will grab a bulldog- another FA or the draft for 1 or 3-tech type player that can hold his ground on a double team or collapse the pocket one-on-one.

    As far as our needs now as a team however, we're starting to just get nitpicky. We're fine how we are. We're not going to see a lot of running in the latter parts of games (another reason for the ultra-athletic types we've grabbed) so I wouldn't be surprised to see us grab a slot corner early and another athletic DE/Will type guy with versatility. Who is out there in the draft that fits this bill?

    I do have one burning question...

    WHEN DOES FOOTBALL START?????? Wooooo Hoooooo!
