How would you feel about this starting OL?

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • Russell Okung-LT-12 million a year
    James Carpenter-LG-6 million a year
    Justin Britt-C-8 million a year
    JR Sweezy-RG-6 million a year
    Breno Giacomini-RT-2.5 million a year

    Don't know that it would be that much better but I found it pretty amazing that all of these guys are still starting in the NFL. I probably should have put Max Unger in at Center.

  • Looks expensive but really good...
    In a 176 million cap, what is the typical total OL allocation?

  • For this lineup, $35 million (not including backups) doesnt seem like much for 176 million cap

    And I never liked letting Breno go. Remember when we all thought he was a penalty machine? Ah, youth.

    Yep. Ifedi is a s******* version of Breno. Same discipline and penalty issues but no talent to go along with it.

  • That looks exactly like the lineup that played in sb49 except for no unger. The last time seahawks were a legit contender.

    Sound silly. I guess opinions do this.


    I already provided stats that show ifedi was on par at tackle for first yr NFL players. Less sacks by far and little above the flags. So that'd be like cutting a rookie and they could turn out to be solid like many did.

    At guard? He was average as a rookie.


    But no, you guys all continue on your hate. Opinions when bashing are way better then facts.

  • Imagine how good those guys would communicate with each other after the years of continuity too.

    This. For many hawk fans it is cut this lineman and we will be fine. They never get 3-4 years together to learn their position or rest of line communication.


    The main issue is tom cable.

    I don't like any of these guys. Not one. That being said, I may be jaded because I don't think they were that good when they were here, and they certainly played better elsewhere, especially Carpenter. I'd rather have him than someone like Joeckel, that's for sure.

    Bottom line, I don't know if anyone can be successful in Tom Cable's 'scheme'. I don't think we have a chance to be successful wrt the O-line until Cable is gone, regardless of personnel.

  • That line was absolutely shredded in the court of public opinion. They (and not just Breno but Okung) were a penalty machine to rival this year, guards could road-grade like nobody else but still whiffed in pass pro with regularity.

  • Okung was a stud this year for the chargers. Brent was AWFUL for the Texans. You might as well have thrown Unger in at center haha.

  • I need to go through and see how pff grades these guys against out OL this year. I didn't like any of these guys outside of Okung when they were here either but they must have been better the i thought since they are all still starters in the NFL.

  • Grass is always green on the other side. We thought we could just walk down the street and find competent linesmen. Watching this year's running game ... made me want to throw up.

    Breno was the attitude along the offensive line.

    Remember when Tobeck was around? Tobeck was the attitude during the Walt and Hutch years.

    Ifedi just might be the "attitude" guy currently, difference is, Ifedi is also horrible.

    Smh.

    He was fun to watch and nasty in the run game but he was gawd-awful in pass pro. Made Glowinski look competent.
