  • Sucks... i really like him as a second TE.. minus the couple drops, he was a real good playmaker.. Happy Healing, hope he can return from that.

  • He goes on IR for the Seahawks unless someone claims him, which is unlikely given his injury and status as a UFA after the season. Doesn't affect much.

  • Hopefully he ends up getting placed on IR shortly after this, like the Hawks did with Cameron Morrah last season. However, hopefully his career path doesn't end up mirroring Morrah's (try saying that 5 times fast!).

    Can't wait to see whether my Adopt-a-Rookie, Luke Willson, can fill the void.

  • A very serious situation for McCoy. He knows that he has, at best, a 50% chance of making the team next year.

  • Interesting. I suspect they weren't that high on him to begin with, which pushed the decision more in this direction. But I doubt anyone claims him, so he will end up back on our IR.

    Or perhaps they are just more realistic about an Achilles tear than Harbaughdouche.

  • Yeah, achille's tears are very serious and I'm sure they realize this. I had simple growing pains in my achilles tendin when I was a kid and it sidelined me for a year from soccer when I was a select player. And we're talking about a 12-13 year old skinny little kid with achilles pain, not a tear in a 250 pound full grown man.

  • Parallels with Cam Morrah are uncanny.

    Edit -- yeah McCoy was more productive, but the basic storyline (low draft pick, 3 year backup TE, showed some ability) is the same.

  • Well, at least they won't rush him back on to the field. :229031_shrug:

    Seriously, I hope he comes out of it OK. It's a tough injury for sure. I thought he was coming around and about to have a decent season for us. Well, hope the rook steps up.

    Yes...except McCoy actually made plays on the field. Morrah had the one big catch against New Orleans in the Beast Quake game, but not much else to show for his time.

  • It will be interesting to see if Crabtree makes it back this year. Suggs pulled it off last year. Hopefully McCoy will be back next season

    If McCoy was nearly the player that Crabtree is and had the same kind of value to the offense that Crabtree does for San Fran then they keep him on the roster, put him on the PUP list, activate him after game six and keep him deactivated for games until he's ready to go. He doesn't have the same amount of value so therefore: waived/injured.

    I much as I can't stand Harbaughdouche, this is a different situation and the 9ers are doing exactly what they should be with Crabtree.

    Yes, or said another way...the 49ers are desperate since Crabtree is their only bona fide playmaker at WR. That's why they are clinging to hope and wishing he comes back in six months.

    They better come up with something in the meantime. Boldin and Manningham are not game-changers, by any stretch of the imagination. Davis seems to be the guy to focus on, but defenses will know that and since you can get away with single coverage on Boldin and Manningham...the Niners are going to be hurting in the passing game.

  • A snippet on Fells and Willson. Should help Willson that he is getting more time with the big boys

    Some tidbits

    * The Seahawks announced that tight end Anthony McCoy, who suffered an torn Achilles tendon that required surgery, has been waived/injured, and offensive lineman Jake Bscherer has been added to the roster in his place.

    With McCoy out, fifth-round choice Luke Willson had an opportunity to step up and show he can be a reliable target in the passing game. But Willson showed he still has some work to do, with two drops and another couple Russell Wilson interceptions that were intended for the Rice product.

    Wilson talked to Willson on the side after the second interception, appearing to talk about the route concept.

    * Linebackers K.J. Wright and Kyle Knox both had the interceptions while guarding Willson, making nice breaks on the ball.

    * TE Darren Fells had a couple nice catches on underneath routes during 7-on-7 passing drills.

  • Good link.

    Off-topic, but it was nice to read this:

    * Cornerback Antoine Winfield provided sticky coverage in nickel situations, and appears a nice fit for Seattle’s defense.

  • This was the only real option for the Hawks with McCoy. He wasn't eligible to be a 'designated for return' player on IR, and the odds of him being physically ready to play at any acceptable level late in the season were very, very low, making the PUP list an unlikely option. By doing this, there's the 1% chance that another team will claim him and take his salary off of the Hawks' hands, and if not, it give the Hawks the option of working out an injury settlement with McCoy if he's interested in that. I don't expect he will be, so we're likely to see McCoy spending the season on the sidelines in a cheerleading role while he rehabs for the 2014 season and perhaps gets brought back on a low-dough prove-it deal.

  • Sorry to hear, but not at all surprising. You don't come back from that in one season and as much as I like McCoy, he's not worth burning a roster spot on hoping he recovers. Well, all the McCoy haters out there get a chance to see what somebody else might be able to do. Best of luck to Willson with 2 L's and Fell. Next man up!

  • No surprise, given his injury and contract status.

    I'd like to see them look at Dante Rosario, he's a similar player, but a bit more polished as a receiver. I think he's still a free agent.
