  • Alright, my post about the long offseason got me thinking - what's your favorite part of the season before the season? Is it Free Agency? I know a lot of folks like the draft, but is the scouting combine more fun? and WHEN is Pehawk ever going to get the hint???

    'restraining order' is three words? The two words are being said to Pehawk. I'm fairly sure my punctuation indicates that Pehawk is the subject of the words immediately following the colon. You sir, need to brush up on your reading comprehension.

  • I think this is an answer that changes from off-season to off-season.

    For me it's the draft because I anticipate us going after some play-makers on both sides of the ball to bring in and let them duke it out for roster spots. I could easily see us focusing on a few positions and drafting multiple guys at those spots, and letting the best man win it.

    Not really very interested in FA this year because there isn't anyone I want to spend the money on.

    My most anticipated moves aren't on your list; which would be re-signing guys already on the roster. Never an 'exciting' move but it's important.

  • The Draft but honestly nothing... I want the season to start right back up again.

    The NFL should have minor league games during this time or something. Or here is a crazy idea. They need something like baseball where people go down to the minors after being selected to the team to hone their skills and if the team thinks there good enough they bring them up to the majors. It would end up kind of like a practice squad with games but we would have more people on it that the team could pick from and use.

    I'm ignoring punctuation today, and I like it better my way.

  • I went with draft. The last few years it has been a real interest of mine. Watching and reading about potential players etc. This year though I don't know but I'm not as excited. Maybe because the team is, while not complete, we aren't waiting for the savior. This year the draft will peak my interest eventually but I am going to be rather bored.

  • It is the bring TJ back threads. And / or the we need to sign Joe Jabroni threads.

    Really?...This team was built in 2 to 3 years using a completely different model than that BS.

    And I do not see a reason to start changing anytime soon.

    But it's not an off-season for Wilson because he's studying film and training. Are you gonna watch film with him?

  • Had to pick draft 'cause it's always fresher and tastier than bottled!

    And here's hoping Kap has the worst sophomore slump ever.

    Agreed. There should have been a "None of the above" choice.

    If I had to pick from the choices, I'd pick "the draft" -- but the draft sucks because:

      The talking heads are really annoying and clueless;
      High-round draft picks often end up being busts, resulting in undue excitement for us fans;
      Low-round draft picks sometimes end up being useful, resulting in fan excitement later -- when football is actually played;

    I'm not saying I'm not grateful that we picked up Wagner in the 2nd and Russell in the 3rd. But did anyone know these guys would be that good at the time they were chosen? Maybe the Seahawks FO -- otherwise, no -- certainly not any of the talking heads.

    So I just don't see the point. The talking heads tell you you made a great pick (see: Curry) or that you reached (see: Irvin), and they might be right, they might be wrong* -- but no one really knows until you play football.

    Watching draft-day is about as much fun as watching weather forecasts, and less accurate.

  • I love free agency.

    Every year you see some big name surprises signed to teams you'd never thought of. Or that shocking release of a supposed "locker room problem" who intends to turn it around with his new team. The shuffling of the not so big name "depth" guys as teams build for the huge training camp rosters.

    Crap... its only the start of February.

    Nothing is less accurate than a weather forecaster pathetically attempting to tell us what we're going to get for temp/precip/etc. more than 2 days in the future, especially in the Northwest.
    Of course they don't have radar, satellites and all kinds of fabulous 21st Century technology so that does make it a lot more difficult. :sarcasm_off:

  • i went with free agency.. we are right there and only need a couple key pieces to put us over the hump.. FA can bring in guys that will impact immediately, as apposed to the draft where it takes a year or so to develope the talent.

    i remember how excited i was when we announced bring in Hooch, or Lynch.. like christmas twice a year i love it.. can't wait to find out who our new toys are this year... hopefully a beast on DL and and burner with sure hands...

    That it ends.
