Everyone gets knocked on their butt
While watching Seahawks rookies Russell Wilson and J.R. Sweezy struggle in their NFL debuts on Sunday, I was reminded of something a former teammate once told me while I was a rookie.

    Dave, your commentary reinforces my belief.
    Wilson should be holding a clipboard and learning the game this year. He should only be playing in mop-up scenarios or if Flynn is injured. The QB position, more than any other on the field, is best served with some time as an apprentice. I believe strongly Carroll has mismanaged the QB position this year (just like he did last year and just like he did when acquiring Charlie and just like he did in New York and just like he did in New England).

    Lugnut?
    Seahawks vs Titans the First play of the game. Try not to forget that great victory for the Seahawks. Where Matt Hasselbeck played a Key role. By throwing the ball to his old team mates wasn't that Fun!.

    Newton, you win the award. Congratulations.
    You are, without question, the one poster who posts regularly on Seahawk stories who brings the least to the table. In golf it would be the "I should have gone bowling" trophy. Here I'll call it the "I should have stuck to the comic pages" trophy. Congrats!!!!

    I can think of at least a half dozen plays where Wilson dodged pressure with his feet and got out of trouble, at least enough to get out of the box and throw the ball away. Flynn would have been face down in the grass in all those plays. Given the facts, the numbers, the money, players and draft picks saved, I fail to see exactly how Carroll "mismanaged" the QB situation last year.

    The professional insight.....
    ....makes for a great post-game career. A tip of the helmet, sir. And to the rookies on the OL, lets hope they hold their ground. Thats about all they can do, period, even if it takes all remaining games to find out. At least it makes for entertaining viewing, if nothing else.

    Can't we wait until Sunday before judgements are made? I would hate for my bosses to fire me after 1 day on the job.

    JoeChuck, if I were you, I'd hate it if my boss put me in a position where I was likely to fail because I hadn't been prepared properly.
    It's not FIRING Wilson, it's putting him in the proper position to succeed when the time is right. I'm not going to hire someone from college and put them in a position too high on the latter where they don't belong - no matter how much I love them. I'll let them get to that spot on the latter in good time.

    Wineman?. Out of Control.
    Seahawks did not get thier butts Kicked. Thats Pure B/S. They where doing some kicking on them Cards pretty darn good in my book. Why do you avoid the most basic question!. "The" "Seahawks" could not punch it in from the goal line when it was first and goal. Just like Last Year. Darrel Bevell is the problem not Russell Wilson who played great. Come on Crusty.?

    Hawks are actually on the rise, in a continuing rebuild that started 2 years ago and on the threshold of contention.
