**please read the instructions and information before you make your vote**

You guys should know the drill by now

But here are a few changes:


-I will stop accepting votes for this poll the following day of the OP date @ 11:59pm

-If you vote, PLEASE in turn post in thread 1) Who you voted for 2) Who you would like to be added to the next poll

-Thread is open to discussion about anything pertaining to the rankings. You may respectfully disagree with someone's selection, but please do not "bash" or criticize someone for making a selection. I would like each selection to be made purely off of opinion, no pressure

-If you are a fan of another team just dropping by, feel free to submit a vote or join the discussion. Outside perspective is always welcome

-I will keep this going until we 1) Complete a 30 man roster 2) or interest drops off to the point where the process loses its function, in which cases the amount will be rounded off. At the end i would like to get this stickied as the official 2013 Seahawk player rankings

I voted Harvin. He will be called on to catch the ball, run, and returns. RW might do less running this year since he has another option to pitch or hand off the ball.

Zack Miller could be added to a poll since he catches well and can block. Just a good player that can do everything his position has to do.

Earl. Without him the D changes dramatically.

Earl is more important to this team and a top 2 FS. I take him.

steelers fan who lives in seattle area. Earl Thomas would be my pick, by a hair over Richard Sherman. I don't think he's a top 2 safety, I think he's a top 1 safety. He does too many things and he does them too well, causing offenses to force adjustments.

as for who to replace him with in the poll, untli proven otherwise, gotta be Bobby Wagner

I went with Lynch but could have easily went with Earl or Sherman instead.

Earl is more valuable to the team, but Sherman is the better player. They're both monsters though.

This is kinda where I'm at, though I think Sherman's value to the team is really understated. We always talk about how much ground Earl can cover and how much of the field he takes away, but do we realize that Sherman essentially takes away his third of the field and the player he's covering? I think Sherman is downright elite at his position with very few (if any) glaring weaknesses, whereas I cannot say the same about Earl. Sherman is a top 20 player in the NFL, whereas Earl falls somewhere between 25-45 for me.

Sherman's the best player on this team.

Sherman does benefit from Earl though. At least 4 of his intercepts he was able to undercut a route because he had Earl behind him. The fact of the matter is, people are right when they say Sherman's role in Seattle's scheme is easier than Revis' role in the Jets scheme. Now the difference is difficultly is overstated greatly, but Earl helps Sherman more than some us, the Seattle fan base, care to admit.

That's not me saying Sherman is worse than Earl, it's very close and I can understand the votes for Sherm.

The question does become muddled. If we're purely looking for the best player, regardless of positional value, weird guys like Jon Ryan should make it onto the list ahead of Wilson and Mebane.

As far as positional value, I value what Earl brings to this team over Sherman.

Sherm has a major crush on Earl.

Lol

Earl: "God, this stretch feels good"

Sherman: "I bet it does. I. Bet. It. Does"
