    I remember him, right about the time I was learning about football and watching my first NFL games. A shame he's gone so young. RIP.

    Hey, Bada, what do you think about the rift in the Seahawks locker room that's been reported the last few days? Any truth to that? Just Sherman being uber-competitive, as usually?

    As much as I would like to say it is much to do about nothing, there is too much smoke for there to be no fire. And yes, it IS in part because of Sherman being a pain in the ass from being uber-competitive. He barks at everyone... when things are going great, easy for teammates to laugh with him... things are not as good, it causes friction. And he is not afraid of calling specific players out.

    So many parallels I think with Draymond. Imagine if the Warriors were under acheiving and were running 6th or 7th in the West and not playing well, Draymond would be very vocal and it would wear on some people and cause friction.

    At the same time, the Seahawks seem to play better when they are pissed and have adversity. So we will see. I suppose this is the downside of Pete's philosophy of letting people be individuals. He never tries to control who you are... players love him for that, but also the loose atmosphere can cause issues at times.

    Yeah, Pete's approach is great when everything is going well, not so much when there's turmoil.

    This statement could pretty much apply to any coach of any sport.

    Not really. Can you imagine Bill Belichick with a laid-back attitude and letting trouble brewing in the locker room?

    Not saying that's what happens in Seattle, but you can't see Bill losing a locker room like that, while plenty of coaches do...

    I know what you meant TMC, I'm just joking with you.

    In Belichick's case, Sherman would have already been traded.

    Seahawks acquire Sheldon Richardson for Kearse and a 2nd rounder! So badly wanted Kearse off this team and to get Richardson... NICE!

    Sub packages with Avril, Bennett, Richardson, and Clark as the front 4....WOW... how do you block that

    Damn, what a great deal for Seattle. Losing the second hurts, obviously, but you won't get a player like Richardson without adding something to lure NY.

    The draft pick I am hearing is conditional. He is a free agent after this year... if they resign him, it is a 2nd, if they dont, it is a 3rd. The beauty is that if they can't resign him, they will likely get a 3rd round comp pick for him so it will only cost them Kearse (who was going to get cut anyway) and a few spots in the 3rd round. If they can resign him, they get one of the best DL in the league for a 2nd rounder. HUGE!!!

    man, what a game yesterday. That was fun to watch. Both QB's were dialed in... not sure I have seen a game where both QB's were going nuts like that. Unreal. Watson is legit.

    FINALLY the Seahawks try to seriously address their offensive line. Starting to reach the tail end of his career but Duane Brown is a HUGE upgrade at LT for this team

    Don't really get this deal from the Texans point of view. Brown was their best lineman and, while they have improved, it's not like their line is a particularly great one. It wasn't cheap, but it's a very good deal for Seattle.

    Damn, as amazing as Russell Wilson is, if he's running for his life constantly, Seattle is going to have a very hard time winning games in the playoffs.

    They were my NFC favorite, but after losing Sherman for the year, I don't know... Seems like every turn goes Philly's way at the moment.

    I haven’t been paying attention to football much, so I heard Sherman & Chancellor are out for the year. Is Earl Thomas healthy or injured, too?

    Either way, I was reading that 2 of them are in a contract year and it’s hard to imagine Sherman getting paid at his age & Kam missing all those games.

    Makes you remember to appreciate this Warriors team now because one day, we may be feeling the same way about the big 4 when they get out of their primes. Because the LOB were a heck of a force.
