Wow, thanks for the info. News Flash: our Quarterback better not get hurt.
Um, that's kind of how it works, you don't want your quarterback getting hurt.

In other news, the sun will come out today. :)

That being said, I agree 100 percent, we need to draft a RT, needs to happen.

Clayton has been saying that the Hawks should go after Thigpen ever since Flynn's trade to Oakland has been imminent.

^^^ This right here.

Another "hand wringing", "this guy, no that guy" headed-for-10 pages thread over something that doesn't even look like its official yet. And if, when it does go official, so what... what has the current administration shown any of us since it took over that makes us believe for one minute that Thigpen, Vince Young, Joe Schmoe, et al that are signed in April, for any position, let alone backup QB, are written in stone for the coming season. Damn near as likely they'll be cut before the season even starts...

Carry on.

PFCENTRAL IS NOT A LEGIT SOURCE

It's the second coming of Incarcerated Fraud. Take a look at the back catalogue. They do exactly the same thing as ICB. They pre-empt things. A deal that is speculated by the media is then a 'done deal' on PFC or ICB, they write a few lines of copy and leave it there. They hedge their bets on it coming true. If it does, then they force the link down your throat to prove how they 'got it right'. If it doesn't, then they delete the post.

When Glazer, Mort, Schefter, La Canfora etc report this, we should talk about it. The title of this thread should include the word 'speculation'.

Incarcerated Bob is just some guy who became a 'personality' by ringing up the New York phone-ins every day. He has a thirst for attention. Whoever started PFC clearly felt like they fancied a crack at it too. Don't get duped by these phoney websites.


Exactly. Remember back earlier in Free Agency came across this jabroni who honestly tweeted out something like "Jake Long to the Rams done, worked hard for this so give credit where it's due" (this was about 2 weeks before Long actually did sign with the Rams also) Seriously who says that? Dude Clearly just tries hard at connecting the dots and throws stuff at the wall.

Thigpen? My first thought was,"A former Steeler?"

All that's stopping me from becoming the next Incarcerated Bob or PFCentral is a twitter account and some self respect. Seriously, ANYONE can do this stuff... but why would you?

I'm still hoping that even if we sign Thigpen, we bring in Portis and a rookie to compete for the 2 available QB spots on the roster. Or will they go with 2 QB's on the roster again this year, with 1 on the practice squad? Probably, right? If they were confident enough in Wilson to stay healthy as a rookie to only carry 2 QB's on gameday, why wouldn't they do that again now that Russ is more of a known commodity?

IF this is a legitimate done deal, it's not the end of the world. My guess is they'll bring in three or four QB's total for camp, kick the tires and divide the reps up to lighten the load. They'll figure out who the best one or two backups are and dump the rest. We'll probably end up with a very cap-friendly quarterback situation, with adequate insurance against possible Wilson injury, when it's all said and done.

Hopefully, Russell isn't so critical as Manning is, about how the backup should properly hold the clipboard...

Great signing. He can run the pistol read option very well.

He isn't nearly as good as RW in the pocket, but he is a mobile QB that can run the Seahawks offense effectively.

Honestly, all we need to do is get whomever we use as a backup to a level where they can effectively manage the game if they are needed. There were/are no real options right now (outside of the draft) for a quarterback to put any faith in as more than a game manager.

I'm laughing at the fact that everyone thinks that this 'unreliable source' of a website would go through the trouble of conjuring up a "groundbreaking" Thigpen-to-Seattle story.

Rotoworld is also reporting that everything is pointing toward Thigpen coming to Seattle.

It isn't... and I can't believe PFCentral has generated a four page thread discussing.

It might happen... but rest assured this is just a complete guess from PFC/IncaceratedBob/whoever...

They don't need to post just ground breaking stories to generate a faux reputation. They just need to guess what 'might' happen in the short term future. If Thigpen signs in two weeks, then they 'called it'. If he doesn't, they'll delete this thread or pretend it never existed.

It's how it works.

We'll know this is a 'done deal' when Schefter, Glazer, Mort or La Canfora reports it... or the Seahawks make an announcement.

hopefully if it turns out to be true we don't just hand him the job.

Everyone else has to compete for their spot I say we end up drafting a guy and bringing in another out of work QB or two and letting the best guy win the job.

TBH I don't know much about Thigpen so I don't have an informed opinion either way on him.

If this was true you would think they would have announced it on .com by now.

Hey, being able to stand on the sidelines while holding a clipboard and watching a legend in the making is a pretty big deal. That's a dream job right there. He'll be able to tell his grandkids that he once touched Russell Wilson's hand after a touchdown in the preseason. Pretty groundbreaking stuff if you ask me.

PFCentral once reported Seattle was close to signing John Abraham: http://www.profootballcentral.com/2013/ ... ham-close/

Nearly a month later, Abraham is still a free agent and we signed Avril and Bennett instead.

Pure guess work on their behalf.

They might have said a deal is close but everyone knows that the hierarchy of done deals goes close, almost done, nearly finalized, and then imminent. Once reports say the deal is imminent, we'll know that a deal is really just weeks/months away.

It seems to me that VY is a more viable choice than Thigpen, but either one can win games in the NFL.

Is that opinion based on Thigpen's 1-11 record as a starting QB?

Take a look at the back-up Qbs around the league. Most teams are in bad shape if their starter goes down. Which, shockingly, is what back-up Qbs are back-ups in the first place.

Not worth worrying about it IMHO.

I am not vouching for the validity of the story, but .com doesn't usually put it up until the contract has been filed with the league office. This usually takes a little time, and depends on when the player can actually get the contract signed and returned. This is why we hear things as "official" on nfl.com, on the radio, ESPN and other sites before you read it on .com.

Whether this is real, the rumored portis signing is real or whether they are in talks with multiple guys, it's all just fodder until we get to at least mini camps and more likely, training camp and actually see who's getting what kind of reps. Until then, any signings are best to be thought of as "another arm" until we are told or see for ourselves otherwise.

We should have at LEAST 3 quarterbacks going into camp, and I believe the first voluntary workout/minicamp is April 15. I would think they'd want to have another guy signed by then to get him as much off season time as possible.

So this may not happen good Pigpen is not a good signing, for those that said he is i'm not buying it because it simply would not be a anything but an act of desperation. The only thing good i have to say about him is he's not a rookie. If they do sign him i'll give them the benefit of the doubt untill i see him throw the ball in a seahawks uniform.

For a smartass comment we now need to sign Tebow

Then we could have an Elbow and a Pigpen on the same team.

So the answer is no. He hasn't signed. It is a rumor. Thread should say rumor on title.

Bleh. Not impressed.

Tyler Thigpen is average, at best.

I totally agree with you. Pete should definetly bring in one of the above average backup quarterbacks that are still available.

Oh, wait.........

I mean, that's probably true, but what do we expect from a backup quarterback? Seneca Wallace was probably average at best, and hell Flynn is probably going to be average at best. Thigpen is cheap and he's a guy where if Wilson has to miss 4 games I think he could probably give you a good shot at winning at least 2 of them. If Wilson misses more than that our season is going to be in serious trouble no matter who we can reasonably expect to be our backup QB.

most 2nd string QB's are average at best. as long as they aren't hurting the team.

We would be a good team with an average QB.

We just happen to have an excellent QB, hence in the superbowl discussion.

We should bring in Thigpen to start, so we can above an above average backup . . .
