On a team with little history at the position, who stands on top?

Not Fauria, that's for sure...

Tice had the longest tenure and was a great blocker.

Rob, this poll is a thinly-veiled attempt to try to get everyone to vote for Fauria, so that McGruff can tell Flying Greg he's wrong. Nothing more.

I'm honestly curious. I've always thought it was Fauria for his career achievements. Before the freaks took over the position, Fauria was a pretty standard NFL TE . . . Good hands, outlet receiver and quality blocker.

But maybe I'm alone on my desert island.

Well, you're at least obligated to say the name, Sister Christian Fauria, thats where it starts.

Oddly, I think Erickson was VERY underrated when it came to NFL personnel. BUT, not with Mr Middle Act Fauria.

Just looked through the team's history at the position, and I'm going to go with "none of the above."

I don't think we can justifiably name a "greatest Seahawk TE" because I don't think one actually exists. What a crapfest at that position.

We haven't drafted him yet.

Edit: How does Stevens have two votes?? That's way too many.

just because we haven't had all the pieces in place to utilize TE position to the fullest capability, it doesn't mean that Zach Miller isn't a phenomenal TE.
He was a pro-baller when he was a Raider and he surely played as one as a Seahawk. he surely has no issue with blocking assignments or catching the ball.

Miller is a beast at blocking and catches everything thrown his way. Obviousy, it's weird to say at this point that he's the "best Seahawks TE ever," but we've only scratched the surface with this guy. The dude has Pro Bowl talent. He just needs to be utilized to his fullest potential, and we're starting to see signs of that.

I'm going with Stevens. Not because of his talent or stats, but because he's a world class idiot who's never gone more than 12 months without being arrested, kicked off a team or done something stupid.........yet he was still able to marry a hot goalie.

Miller will probably get my vote after next year, and I hope we can find a way for him to stay longer, but right now Mili gets my vote. He was consistently good for what, 4-5 years, before the Stevens debacle began? Carlson was always an under-performer (with some flashes here and there) and Tice was mostly a big, likeable dummy with decent hands.

I was going to pick Tice, but then realized that Miller is just a stud. The guy is a total gamer and we need to keep him around for a few seasons. He saw a lot more action this year and made so many clutch plays.

Wouldn't mind another one though, one that is closer to WR than TE, with some blocking skills but that can really get moving after the catch. Miller is great for his size and build, but McCoy looks very clumsy at times.

I voted Mili, but Miller is nipping at his heels. Ask me again this time next year and the answer will probably be Miller.

Expect when he's prancing along behind the line of scrimmage in motion... HE LOOKS LIKE A COMPLETE AND UNADULTERATED DORK.

One of the few benefits of age. Tice could catch the ball too, he was a great player. I was glad to see Mili on the roster. He was a knee injury away from big time greatness.

Also, at the 2006 camp in Cheney, there were kids on the barrier calling players over to sign autographs. They were all yelling "hey 88" over and over again. My kid, all of 8 years old yelled "Mr Mili" and he walked right over, grabbed my kids brand new unsigned ball, with his pen and took it out to the field as practice was ending. He got signatures from Hass, Robbie Tobeck, Wistrom, Big Walt, Morris, Strong and even caught Tatupu who was out of the way. To top it off, Holmy was driving by in a golf cart and he stood on front of it (which was actually pretty funny because Holmy was all "hey, I don't want to hear it" in a joking manner) then he signed it with all the rest.

When Mili came back, he handed the ball to my kid and told him that he was the only kid that called to him by his name that entire day. That Mili signature meant EVERYTHING to my then 8 year old son. So Mili will always be the coolest to me.

Great story. I miss the training camps in Cheney. I went to VMAC for this first time this year, and it was still fun and is an awesome facility, but there was something about Cheney...seemed more informal I think.

We did have a guy named McNeal once back then.. him? He wasn't all that "bad" as a TE either.

Could be, maybe. Flores/Early Erickson era?

wow no offense to any of those guys but that's a sad collection of TE's.

Fauria has pretty much been removed from seahawks history in my mind from all of the garbage he spews on tv.

I would have to go with Miller under the assumption he picks up where he left off. I refuse to use stats with other teams to talk about the greatest SEAHAWK ever for the same reason I'm not going to pretend that Jerry Rice is the greatest seahawk receiver ever. '

The only thing Miller has against him is his time with the team. Last year he was asked to block a lot for a sub-par QB. He did that job and didn't bitch about it. This year he obviously was huge for us in one of the top 2 or 3 seahawk seasons ever.

Its killing me, not remembering who it was.

Had to be 1998, so I went back and looked at the roster, and there's no one with that name (what a LOADED roster...Erickson could put together a squad...for sure). I remember the chick, approaching for the kill and feeling insecure because I'm Irish and she was used to non-Irish.

Maybe it was Trey or even Carlester? My mind keeps saying the chick was from Carolina, but that entire era's a haze. Or, maybe it was a temporary player brought in, because I do remember they lived in a hotel.

On topic, it's Mili in my book.

Has to be Miller. He has averaged 47 catches a year, and this year with 38 was still better than any single year Fauria had. Good blocker too.

Miller had good seasons catching from Jamarcus Freakin Russell. Fauria went to play with the Patriots and his best year with Tom Brady he had 28 catches.

Fauria's best season he had 377 yards receiving. Miller has had only one season below that number, his single season with TJ.

I think the answer is pretty clear.

Why no mention of John Carlson?

I used to take the RV to some Yogi Bear RV park for training camp and it was a short drive from there everyday.

That 2006 camp had a HUGE crowd, daily. I have to add one story to it.

The fans would line up at the exit ramp from the locker room, so my kid would always want to get there early and have the best spot. He wouldn't leave.. On the ramp, in the shade, the players had a game console set up. Tobeck and Wistrom were playing something and arguing, swearing and talking trash to each other when a group of trainers came out with a kit behind Tobeck. Wistrom got up and held Tobeck down in his chair while the trainers proceeded to administer what appeared to be an extremely painful shot, in both of his shoulders. He SCREAMED f-bombs, regardless of the fans not 50ft away. After they were done, they put huge ice packs on his shoulders, wrapped in big Ace bandages. Tobeck got up, walked out towards the parking lot and just grunted, walking line a beat-up zombie.

Not a single fan tried to talk to him as he slipped through the barricade. As he neared a vehicle, he turned to Wistrom and said "your driving me back, I can't even put my (expletive) arms on the wheel" and sort of fell into the vehicle.

On topic, it's Mili in my book.


The guy was great and was actually on the roster for a long time, but it just seemed like the guy was always hurt.

Why no mention of John Carlson?


I wondered that also. That first season, in the first game I think Hass hit him for two TD's, he scored at least one from a ways out too. Then his use tapered off. I liked that guy a lot, but I looked at the Miller signing as an upgrade.

Miller is the best all around I have seen.

Miller was an absolute stud in the playoffs, and I'm excited to see he and Wilson develop together, but if this poll had been posted two games ago, he'd hardly have any votes. He needs to produce for a little longer before I put him at the top of my list.

Mili gets my vote. Very solid and dependable for a considerable amount of time. I remember how clutch he was in the days where it seemed like nobody else on the team could catch a cold.

Would Miller be getting all this love if his last game wasn't his best as a Seahawk?

I hope so. It isn't his fault he has had to block for the majority of his snaps in Seattle. last year was silly stupid with how grossly underused he was. So was this year.

I think he ends up north of 50 next year.
