    I very well could work out great for the Seahawks, but as of right now, he only looks the part exactly where he stands in the picture...on the sidelines.

    I agree with the other poster that said this will very likely help define the Carroll era at the Seahawks. If this succeeds, it's a great move. If he doesn't become the long-term QB answer, then this will be a huge failure.

    Another potential failure could be that he succeeds as the starting QB, but the seahawks fail to extend him and he ends up leaving after two years to be the starter somewhere else....we take the risk to see what this guy can do and then someone else sweeps in and gets him long-term.

  • Earlier in the day I was going to give Pete & Co. the benefit of the doubt with the direction of our team after trading away the likes of Tapp and Seneca. But this trade just hit me like Tiger Woods in his Escalade...WTH is going on at the VMAC?!?

    Prove me wrong, Whitehurst. I hope you hold that clipboard with high regard.

  • usually to move up in the drat you have to give the other team a pick the followin year included with maybe a player....BUT INSTEAD...seattle decides...Hey! san diego you give us your 3rd string QB and you can move up 20!!!!! spots in the draft and to say thank you we will also give you our third rounder next year!!!.....I can hear the City of San Diego laughing at us!

  • Before the deal was announced Brock thought Whitehurst was worth no more than a couple million and a late draft pick. I don't know if this is just me, but I seem to get the feeling that some of these retired QBs with ties to Hass, (aka Tim Hasselbeck and Huard), are threatened by a move for a new starter. It would certainly sever some strong ties they have with the team. Maybe I'm off, but could be a reason for their impassioned dislike.

  • I'm not going to get too upset over this. I'm willing to give Whitehurst a shot the same I did with Matt back in the day. That said, this trade sure feels like a lot to give up for the guy.

    Why does it feel that the Hawks are on the crap end of every trade they make. Whether it be them trading away a player or trading for one. A 7th for Seneca. Tapp gets a 2nd round tender and is traded for a 4th. And Whitehurst gets a 3rd round tender and the Hawks have to give up 20 sports in the 2nd round and next years 3rd? Ugh.

    Yet another year in which we aren't going to have a 3rd round pick. And I don't even want to be on this board during the 2nd round for picks 20-39 and hear all the teeth gnashing that is going to go on about all the players taken that the Hawks could've had.

    I don't know what to think in regards of this Carroll/Schneider FO we got going. I don't know if they just are being out-negotiated or if they just really want to do certain moves to the point that they don't care about getting fair value. Color me a good deal less optimistic about the future from what I was this time last month.

    Oh well. At the very least, it's interesting. :229031_shrug:

  • Touche Kyle: To me, the bottom line is our staff didn't want to spend (or trade up and spend) a high pick on a QB this year.

    No doubt--If he turns out to be a quality starter, great deal. Ditto for any unknown quarterback that's traded for. But it's not like Whitehurst is Schaub, there was at least some sample size of his work in this league when Houston traded for him. Hasselbeck was a different case too--Holmgren had seen Hasselbeck in practice every day for 2 years.

    He's been well coached for a couple of years, great, but I don't think that justifies the cost. Didn't Whitehurst look terrible in the preseason last year against us?

    This stings, at least, for now.

  • Brock couldn't play a lick i don't know why he is trippin, Charlie will be a better quarterback than Brock ever was. I like this deal third next year is a bit much but it also says how much San Diego thinks he is worth. If he comes here and leads the Seahawks to the Superbowl then They will be kicking themselves saying we should have kept him. I think they will trade back from 6 unless McCoy drops to them. :0190l:

  • Well, all of you who thought this free agency period was too boring, hope you're happy now.

    I can wait to see if Whitehurst develops, but quite frankly, I really wanted Lamarr Houston at #40.

  • One thing about Whitehurst: he's a tough SOB. I remember the first preseason game in San Diego last year when the Chargers had one last chance to drive down and win the game. The Hawks were blitzing on every play and Whitehurst kept getting the crap beat out of him every single time he dropped back to pass. But he'd get back up and call another play like nothing had happened. Looked pretty good on that drive, though of course it was against our 3rd stringers.

    I don't mind that we traded for him but despise the fact that we dropped 20 spots in the second round and traded next year's 3rd. I've never been a fan of Carroll and Schneider and so far they are doin nothing to change my opinion.

    Hahaha, when I read that I heard Bill Murray's voice. Too funny

    I guess I'll take a wait and see approach. If he plays well, good trade, if not... well it wasn't.

    It's all up to Whitehurst to live up to it. We have no idea if it was a good value or not at this point because we are paying for his potential.

    Let's see what happens.

    We moved from 10 to 17 in the first round and got a 7th for Hasselbeck. So, it's probably comparable on the point chart.

    However: our coach and GM at the time watched Hasselbeck practice for at least a year and had pretty huge intel on him. What can our staff really know about Whitehurst? I guess we can't know.

  • The only thing that was going to make a first round pick for Marshall even somewhat palatable was that we still had that number 40 pick so close to the first round, now that is gone. Who is Whitehurst going to throw too? Housh will be doubled, Branch will be broken and Deon needs more game experience. If we keep this same horrendous line even Carlson is going to be gone as a target as well because he'll be sitting back trying to help keep the QB upright.

    Granted, it's from his college days, but he seems to have good mobility for his size and a pretty quick release. I'm not a fan of the move, but i'll remain hopeful that he turns out to be really good.

    Can any of our resident scouts provide better analysis of his game?

    Oh, ya, you're right. My bad. Hass was probably more expensive then.

    However, if we had the option of moving back from 6 to 17, I'd like that better than 40-60.

  • Not getting Marshall isn't really the end of the world, and who knows? Maybe on draft day Denver will realize the #60 is the best offer they can get. Anyways, having the 6 and the 14 gives us a ton of flexibility, so I'm just not going to panic for now.

    You know, 'SC to San Diego is really not that far. Maybe Pete Carroll saw more of Whitehurst than we can ever know.

    All I know for sure is, Whitehurst is apparently now a Seahawk. That means he's got my 100% support. And really, all we gave up was next year's 3rd? I don't have that much of a problem with it.

    We did. We moved down from 10 to 17 and gave up a 3rd. Based on the value chart, we gave up the #33 pick for Hass.

  • Let's Draft CJ Spiller and Jacoby Ford and then we can rename the team Clemson U when Whitehurst and Spiller take us to the promised land. :sarcasm_off:

    Indeed. I corrected, ^above^, but this thread's like wild fire.

    Moving from 40 to 60 in this draft seems huge to me. Really huge. I loved that high 2nd round pick--at 60, guys like Lamarr Houston, Branond Ghee and Chad Jones are likely gone.

  • Still sitting here a bit shell shocked that we may be looking at the successor starting QB in Seattle with Charlie Whitehurst. Of course there are tons of question marks - but when you really think about it - this is a strong and sound move for the Seahawks.

    First - take a look at the other three teams in our division:
    - Alex Smith - HUGE contract, nothing to show for it
    - Matt Leinart - HUGE contract, nothing to show for it
    - Sam Bradford - will be a HUGE contract, and has NO experience

    At least with this move, you are taking a very well calculated risk that Charlie Whitehurst could be your heir apparent without screwing up your salary structure and you can use those picks you have left to fill some gaping holes. I think it's obvious that Matt Hasselbeck is not in competition for the #1, but one injury and/or ripe opportunity for a substitution to CW is forthcoming. Hence the VERY logical reasoning to dump Seneca Wallace in favor of finding a more future-proof backup.

    Anyway, just thoughts...

    However, if we had the option of moving back from 6 to 17, I'd like that better than 40-60.


    I know what you mean, but the 2 first rounders softens the blow quite a bit for me. Thats still 3 picks in the top 60. We will find 3 good prospects in 2 rounds
