    Housecleaning continues

    Both coordinators, and a few assistants out

    Michael Bennett traded to Philadelphia with a 7th rounder for a 5th and WR Marcus Johnson

    Richard Sherman released due to two Achilles surgeries and a high salary; subsequently signs for big money in SF.

    Jeremy Lane released because of performance issues, injury issues, too high a salary and a DUI, not necessarily in that order.

    Free agents include Jimmy Graham, Sheldon Richardson, Paul Richardson, all of whom likely won't be back

    Cliff Avril likely to be released given his one remaining year on his contract and his career-threatening injury

    Kam Chancellor won't be released because his cap hit would kill the team, so he either plays or spends the year on IR.

    It's going to be an interesting year. They still have Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas, and Bobby Wagner. The draft will be key. Seattle is certain to trade down from #18, maybe multiple times, to acquire multiple picks.

    Seahawks keep S Bradley McDougald, who did a fine job filling in for Kam Chancellor and is his likely replacement, for 3 years, $13.95M. He should be worth every penny.

    I'm still shaking my head at a RB pick in the first round. Penny will need to pull an Elliott out of the gate to be worth this investment.

    Hate hate hate this pick. Have a hard time believing they couldn’t have traded out of the first round, pocketed a 3rd or 4th and still gotten him in the 2nd if they liked him so much.

    They don't have a second round pick, so they'd have to hope he slid to the third.

    After reading more about him, I don't mind this pick. They want to get back to running the ball and they don't have anyone in house that can do that. Guy is great at breaking tackles and has good speed.

    Should have been more clear: they should have traded 1/27 for a 2nd & a 3/4. Don’t mind the player, just think they left draft capital on the table taking him at 1/27.

    I think this pick is a result of hoping a player would have slid a bit more last year. The Penny pick can lead you to believe that the Seahawks may have missed their guy in last year's draft with Kareem Hunt, picked 86th overall by the Kansas City Chiefs. The Seahawks ended up choosing Shaquill Griffin at 90th overall. This year, the Seahawks get a guy that profiles similar to Kareem Hunt, and move on from the running back play they endured last year.

    Clearly they didn't have that kind of offer or they would have taken it.

    He’s not technically retiring, he’s “not medically cleared,” which means he will make about 11.5 million the next two seasons as part of his injury guarantee. Glad he has it, and hopefully this doesn’t impact his life much moving forward.

    Well, that sucks. Easily my favorite Seahawks defensive player from this run. But glad he's hanging it up before anything worse happens to his body.

    I'll always remember his Super Bowl helmet-hit on Edelman and how Julian popped up and kept running, possibly delirious, downfield.

    Should have been a 15 yard penalty - clear helmet to helmet.

    Jules was definitely concussed.

    Yeah, there's no way Edelman should have been allowed to play the next play, that was a *stamp*

    Not to get lost in the Kaepernick stuff, but Shaquem Griffin is also one of the featured Nike athletes this campaign:

    [​IMG]

    Dude was one of the best players in college football with one hand, tore up the Combine, got drafted, made Seattle's 53, and now figures to start with K.J. Wright recovering from surgery. Unbelievable story.

    Scathing piece on the internal turmoil in the Seahawks front office and locker room. Russell Wilson is at the center of it and comes out like a spoiled brat that goes to Daddy Pete while Daddy does not hold him accountable for anything.

    An interesting exerpt about the play on the 1-yard line.

    I read that article. Sounds like the seeds for destruction were sown before the Super Bowl, but really... the Patriots broke them.

    It also goes to show that while for some players BB's system may not be as "fun" (whatever they mean by that), they know he's consistent and it works. The Patriots have had plenty of huge stars and egos on the team and the team just keeps winning. How remarkable it is, really.

    haha, boo hoo. Bill goaded the Seahawks into a pass play. If Pete wanted Russ to be the star that badly, he would have thrown on 1st down, after a timeout, with some time to think about it. Not in real-time panic on 2nd down.

    But people will believe it. You have a player saying it.

    These moments are tough to overcome. We have geniuses saying B.B. threw a SB to make a point re Malcolm Butler.

    Is Kendrick even going to be eligible to play? He pleaded guilty to a felony, have to assume that there's a significant suspension coming

    It's time. Pete needs to go. The team needs a reboot. His insistence on hiring shitty offensive coordinators is wasting the prime of Russell Wilson's career. The defense played its heart out last night, terribly undermanned missing three starters including 2 Pro-Bowlers. And yet they held Chicago to 17 points on offense on the road despite being on the field for more than 2/3rds of the game after 3 quarters. Russell was fucking awful last night, even if you threw out the pick-6. I don't know if it's the scheme or if he's lost his confidence, but he looked worse than your average rookie QB last night. Pete claimed in his postgame press conference that he overruled Schotty's offensive play calls to start the second half, calling for more passing than sticking to the game plan. If true, that's criminal. He's a fucking defensive coach; he needs to stop meddling in something he knows squat about. This team has enough talent to finish 6-10. I'd rather the wheels fall off completely, Paul Allen talk Pete into "retiring" and getting a top 5 pick in the draft and begin the rebuild/retooling.
