I have to disagree about him being a mirror image to Browner (or perfect replacement). He's awful in press coverage and in hand usage. He would have been perfect for Gus Bradly's soft zone's on third down, but otherwise he will have some learning to do. He'd be an excellent dime corner for the next season or two while we nurture him into that role at #2

He's physical, willing, and physically talented, it's just a matter of technique. I doubt Kris Richard struggles to coach a guy with this much raw talent. I doubt it's a big issue by the time we'd ask him to step in.

The things he brings that Browner doesn't are what cannot be taught. His hips are much more fluid turning and running with the deeper routes, his ball skills on are better when the balls in the air, and he's just generally a faster player. I think he'll end up being an upgrade.

I don't think that is being debated, I think that the comparison is a bit off as well. I see more Sherm in Simon than Browner.

Maybe he is a better pro player this was the case with Richard Sherman.

Not saying he's a bad player. Justt hat he's in no way shape or form a press corner. If you look up press corner in the dictionary, you'll find a picture of brandon browner

Sherm's better in press than Browner. Browner isn't quick enough to press the quicker WR's of the NFL.

Meh, you could say that browner does a better job with the stronger receivers (CJ, AJ, Marshall, ETC). It goes both ways. Browner does a better job at stop players at the LOS, Sherman is better at interrupting route breaks

GM John Schneider said the Seahawks are "comfortable" with fifth-round rookie CB Tharold Simon's legal situation.

Simon was arrested last Thursday night for public intimidation, resisting an officer and a noise violation. His attorneys are confident the charges will be dropped. Simon insists that the officers overreacted and he says he has 30 witnesses. We wouldn't expect any league discipline to come down here -- especially because Simon wasn't on a team when the incident went down.
