Seaside Joe 1271, 8/28/22: Don't fall for traps that are begging Seahawks fans to get caught in during these tumultuous times
I dont do twitter nor facebook.. both are dredges on society.. but back to football.
The cardinals writer is just football ignorant.
If the trade was Wilson for Lock he would be correct. But it wasn't. It was two 1st and two 2nds.. plus Fant, Harris, and ok we'll take Lock too..
The CBS writer is also Football ignorant. As he doesn't know Seahawks history and did 0 research..
Cause he sure as hell doesn't know about the Kelly Stouffer, Dan McQuire, Stan Gelbaugh Qb competition of 1992...
I mean i was only 16 years old but i remember 2 of the 3 qbs that year... had to google Stan Gelbaugh...
I find most sports writers care more about clicks than putting out real content..
No one cares if its garbage as long as it gets clicks..
Problem with todays media.. the money is more important than the truth or good reporting..
The main problem I have with Geno being named the starter is that it will make it much harder to watch the Seahawks offense. His career average passing yards per game is barely over 150. At least there would be the possibility of a great play involving DK or Tyler if Drew was the QB. Alas, I am anticipating a "3 yards and a cloud of dust" offense and a lot of 3 and outs. One silver lining I just thought of though is that the young guys on defense will get a lot more playing time and experience, although at the expense of the young guys on the offense.
I see that guy’s tweet as just a bad taek. It’s like Evan Hill’s food opinions. His prepubescent taste buds might be genuine, but his opinions on food for adults is sad.
Unfortunately The Algorithm[TM] likes trolls and bad taeks equally well. It’s sad that either gets rewarded. The Algorithm[TM] is a sociopath.
Kenneth, why are you hoping the Hawks don't sign Jimmy? Assuming he's cut by San Francisco and he signs at a reasonable price? You were the guy saying we shouldn't be rooting for the kind of season that lands the #1 pick. I don't think anyone thinks Garoppolo is the answer to our problems. Would be fun, though, to win against the 49ers with him under center. File it under ways to spice up an uncompetitive season.
Just to be clear: Is Garoppolo the answer to our need at QB? Absolutely not. Is he an improvement over Smith and Lock? Probably.
We as Seahawk fans, are wittinessing firsthand, the evolution of a SB team, what they go thru. I know Pete doesn't want to mention it, but the Seahawks is going thru the rebuilding stage. Which includes, finding a new franchise QB. But, I Lov what I see with the development of the new OL. Someone must of lit-a-fire under the defensive backs, they were hitting and tackling like their job depended on it; in the last game against Dallas. At this point of the evolution, I'm more interested in seeing how well Pete and John do rebuilding the Seahawks. Was it just a fluke the first time, finding the talent to win a SB, or do they really know how to spot talent needed to get to another SB?? Can they create a dynasty?? Time will till....... I like what I see so far !!
This might be my favorite post you've done since I've been a subscriber. You won me over many articles ago and this isn't just good food for thought but actually and genuinely positively impacted my day. Kudos sir, and keep up the great work.
If you consider what the season would have looked like if Wilson had NOT been traded (and no Cross, Lucas, Walker...) the Seahawks' record this season would likely be very similar to what it is going to be without him--except that now we have Cross, Lucas, Walker, Boye... and the prospects of a much brighter future.
The question of Jimmy G (should he become available) is really one about whether the offensive scheme/players can develop as well with Geno (or Lock) running the show. Would Jimmy G be a better bridge for the 23 draftee? That kind of thing.
The so called competition never really never got off the ground. I find it hard to believe Pete had a knee jerk reaction because Lock had 3 ints. If you watch the film only one of the ints was Locks fault. For what ever reason Lock missing his start against the Bears due to Covid, was the nail in his coffin, FOR NOW..
Lock will get his chance, as it is unlikely the Seahawks have a winning record over the first eight games. I don't know why the game two start was so important. I would certainly like to know the reason as would most.
Perhaps Geno plays a little more freely. I am buoyed by our O Line and the impressive stable of runningbacks. It would be great if KW3 returns at 100% to start the season. He is a nightmare for defensive coordinators. If they focus to much on him, Dee Eskridge and possibly Goodwin will likely be open.
Lastly Ken this was a good article, and mostly your speaking to the choir. There are very few if any trolls that are subscribers to Seaside Joe. The general opinion of our society, is the Seahawks will struggle this year, but wilk probably be very good come September of 2023. The rest of it is most of us would rather rally around the excitement Lock adds to the game.
Arizona guy seems like a troll to me. That take is just so bad...
I had a dream!!!
Geno Smith was named QB1 Aug 26th
Geno Smith tested positive for Covid Sep 10th
Drew Lock starts in Denver game Sep11th
Seattle vs Denver 3rd quarter ………………………….
Was it a dream or a nightmare?
I sure hope we have a functional offense. We want our team to be good but limited, which is a free agent magnet, not bad and almost worthless, which decreases morale and starts a vicious circle of badness (as of recently Jags, Browns, Dolphins, Lions, etc, though the two last ones seemed to finally have turned the page) that no high picks can solve.
The Bengals were a mediocre team. But always fighting. They had a pretty bad season, got Burrow, Burrow got hurt and even then they had a slightly better season, got Chase, made to the Super Bowl, and are building from that. Same for the Chiefs, keeping things respectable with Alex Smith until Mahomes could start.
Do we have an Andy Dalton or Alex Smith in our roster? If Geno can perform like Dalton, that's good. If not, I want someone at or a little bit above the Dalton Line. It can be Garoppolo, we can kick the tires on Kellen Mond, Mason Rudolph, or Skylar Thompson if any one of those get cut. But if Geno is under the Dalton Line, no amount of good drafts and expert cap magic will make us competitive in the next years, because no one will want to play for us.
You can tank if you're Miami or LA. Not Seattle.
I'm curious about Geno's contract even more now. You made a good case for Geno being released and resigned if Lock was named QB1 for purely financial reasons. Does the same logic still hold true if Lock takes over in week 3 or 4? What if that transition doesn't occur until week 8 or 9?
Mostly agree, but 5% correct is way too high for Josina. Just a shill for agents and other that suggest click bait... is that a troll?
Agreed, no reason for the next two weeks, months, or this year.
Pete sees the QB as one player on a roster of 53. Well, he achieved that.
Geno Smith does not stand out amongst the other players, and even his contact says that.
The talk should be about the RB room; the receivers, the defense--and even that by groups.
The QB on the Seahawks is just another guy. The Seahawks have proven that well.
Now we get to see how well that philosophy works out.
And with Denver too. We'll let THEM commit large cap space to their QB.
SJ, is there anyway to send you a personal message on this forum? I can't seem to find a way.
Some hot takes are stupider than others, but that "worst trade" one challenges for the title of dumbest. That trade was about dumping current and future salary and stocking up on young talent through the draft first, second and third, with getting serious value exchange through players from Denver a distant fourth. So, at best, it was so premature as to be completely useless.
