An even better question would be: Hypothetically of course, would the Seahawks front office trade Golden Tate for Calvin Johnson or Julio Jones today with no salary implications? Just a simply Player for player trade?

It is possible to be a run first offense and still have a HOF receiver... just ask Michael Irvin of the 90s Cowboys.
Seattle doesn't seem to have a problem competing big pass plays, Wilson seems to be on target most of the time. I maybe mistaken, but isn't Seattle the top big play team (20+ yards) in the NFC?

Okay I can buy the trade thingy except for one thing, I wouldn't trade for Julio Jones as it seems he is always hurt. Another problem is the Lions would never give up Johnson. But trade for him....in a New York minute if he was available. Hypothetically of course.

Get some new material man... I could give a #*#& about the Falcons season that was over in week 4. If you wanna hurt my feelings you should talk about all the Super Bowls the Seahawks have won...

Oh wait... a common trait shared between our teams!

Tell me, is that why the Seattle fans get all butthurt when SF fans talk about Super Bowl trophies?

Not really... the season ending foot injury was the first significant injury of his 3 year career.

Kees,

I am just curious. You are on here every day/week and talk a bunch of crap about the Seahawks. I get they are not your favorite team. But you are like on a mission or something, like you can't get enough.

I'm just talking football. I disliked the 2000's Patriots and the 1990's Cowboys just the same... I'll shut up once the Seahawks are bounced from the playoffs.

Russell Wilson is a class act though. Maybe next year I'll jump on the bandwagon. It's already full this season.

wilson is good but honestly is lacking talent around him. lynch is obviously a beast, miller is underused, tate is alright and thats about it. a bunch of other mediocre players. now if harvin can be who he once was that would help a lot.

Seattle Children's Hospital says 'thank you' to Russell & Ashton Wilson - Field Gulls

More reasons I like this guy. I just might have to go buy a #3 jersey.

You should. Those of us that have been around Russell for a while know this is just him being him. All around good person and just has that "it" factor in all facets really, whether you are talking life or football. He was like that in college at both NCSU and Wisconsin and still the same guy in the pros. Very consistent personally and professionally.

I love wearing my #3 jersey around town in NC as a) no one else is wearing one b) always gets compliments and c) its easy to feel good about wearing it when you're promoting a good person, not just football player.

Alfred Morris has now rushed for more yards than Marshawn Lynch. So that's now one prong of your argument that has to go out of the window.

The problem with that statement is Marshawn Lynch is going to the playoffs and Alfred Morris isn't. Now which would you rather have on your team?
