For that kind of salary cap hit Sidney Rice might find himself looking for a new team next off season if he doesn't restructure significantly or put up a monster season that gives him big time leverage in negotiations. I think Red will be gone for sure after this season so long as there isn't a contract quirk that sticks the team with a huge cap hit like there is this year.

On another note, how many of you in here would take a Super Bowl win even if you knew we'd get our roster scavenged of all the young talent like Baltimore has? I think I would, as long as we keep Russell Wilson. Very Happy


I take the Superbowl. The team needs one dreadfully and now could be the best chance to do so.

depends on who that young talent is. Unlike the ravens, young talent MAKES this team. This roster would be be barren. I don't know if i'd trade a superbowl for another 5-10 years of rebuilding. There aren't ET's, Okung's, Sherman's, Harvin's, Lynch's or Wagner's in every draft. And wilson is once in a generation in terms of his overall mold...so my answer would be no, if we're going to lose them.

We have have the young talent that can grow into winning multiple superbowls, or at least appearing at them

Here's another that's a little longer. Has a few more passes.

Edit: Also, he made the 2013 top 100 list. Few appearances from Sherm and Pete.

I'm sorry siren but this doesn't make any sense. You say there's no doubt he will be one of the all time greats in SEA history, but then say we can't annoint him a once in a generation leader? His leadership is a huge part in what makes him so great. If you have been following his career throughout college and the pros, it shouldn't be a stretch to make that statement.

Is Peyton Manning a HOF player right now? Nope.

Will he be? Yup.

Russell Wilson has 1 NFL season under his belt, he hasnt accomplished anything other than that 1 season. Hes not a once in a generation anything yet.

Didn't realize being a leader requires you to be in the NFL, let alone have 1+ years playing in it. If you don't feel the same way as me, that's fine, but searching my own feelings and how I respond to different people, RW is a special person, a once in a generation person, no question. And at the end of the day, being a leader is about how you affect people, how you influence people, so that's just how I feel.

Good thing we don't have to worry about that for a couple of seasons but i take the Super Bowl.

Does anyone really think Sidney Rice is going to restructure after seeing what his old teammate received? Sidney Rice is the best pure receiver on the team, and his agent isn't going to let the team forget that. I like Percy Harvin as an offensive weapon that can be used in many ways, but I think a guy like Sidney Rice is more valuable to Russell Wilson and his development as a prolific passer.

Percy Harvin is a lot better than Sidney Rice. He'll restructure or he'll be shipped out as there are plenty of WR's to be had that could replicate Sidney Rice's skill set/impact. Seattle isn't drafting someone beyond the first round that can do what Harvin can do, hence them dealing a first round pick for his talents.

I understand you're uncomfortable with the Percy being a quarter inch shy of 6ft, and very critical of him falling 33, and 132 yards short of 1000 yards receiving in his last full seasons, but I think you'll learn very quickly why he was valued so by Pete and the offensive coaches when he's streaking down the field for 6 in a Seattle jersey.

Unless you think Wilson's passing skills are as poor as Ponders, I don't think you'll have to worry about Harvin being limited to gadget plays.

Despite the reported sour relationship, Percy Harvin told USA Today he could have continued playing for Vikings coach Leslie Frazier had he not been traded. Harvin said he and Frazier have talked since the trade and exchanged text messages within the last month about Harvin's impending fatherhood.

maybe becoming a father will allow Percy to order his priorities better and mature, it certainly had a big impact on Jared Allen. Winfield, who has always been regarded as a very mature man and teammate, had a child while still in college.
