  • “To me, as of now, where I am today, I think Stafford’s been the best quarterback I’ve played with,” Tate said. “The guy can flat-out play. He’s tough, his attitude is amazing and he just wants to play ball. For me, I have nothing but praises for him. It’s almost unfair that he’s such a good player and doesn’t have playoffs or a ring to show for it. That kind of hurts my heart that I wasn’t able to help change that.”

    “I think over his career, if you put him in another organization, maybe things are different. I don’t know. Because I’ve played with some guys over my years that I’ve won playoff games with that I don’t think are as good,” Tate said.


    Would be nice to have as the #3 WR, but seems unlikely.

  • Losing Tate was stupid.

    Probably cost us a SB win, if not a dynasty.

    But this move helps nothing.

    Might as well bring Unger back and we can try to pretend the moves to get rid of those 2 were not the worst in Seahawk history. Even worse than trading Hutch.

    They didn't trade Hutch. If you're going to make big statements like that, at least get your baseline facts straight.

  • They didn't trade Hutch. They might as well have. Ruskell played games with him and lost him to FA.

    I thought that was the worst decision this franchise ever made, worse than drafting Mirer (who got us Walt later...so I suppose not THE worst). But the process by which we lost Hutch was rife with stupidity and vintage Ruskell.

    If you want to argue semantics. No they did not trade Hutch. But it screwed us.

    Not as bad as letting Tate walk and trading Unger did though.

    It was on Hutch, not Ruskell. Vikings made an offer that the Hawks couldn't match.

    Ruskell used the Transition tag not the franchise tag, Vikings made him an offer that could only be offset by making him paid equal to our highest lineman If memory serves.

  • Fire Pete! Trade Russ!

    The only thing that would make as much sense is bringing Tate back.

    From what Holmgren said.. Ruskell had assured Holmgren and Hutch, that they were going to franchise him, which apparently was fine with Hutch. Holmgren, then went on that vacation to Miami I believe, maybe Hawaii.. and upon his return found out that Ruskell had blatantly lied to both of them and went with the transaction tag. Holmgren went onto say that Hutch basically was balling in his(Holmgren arms, that he was lied and betrayed)

  • People overblow those Stafford comments. Lots of receivers hype up their own guy, and FOR Golden, Stafford really was the best QB for him. He had his most productive years there.

  • Tate would be an upgrade to Moore at WR3, but don't expect the old Tate. He'd probably help out mainly on third down.

    If Tate's willing and wouldn't be a dumpster fire for team chemistry, I'm for it.

    100% on Ruskell, it destroyed Holmgrens cool and HC career. Seahawks would have had a great shot at the following years SB.

    He's a good route running, and may find success as our number 3 slot receiver. He also has very good hands, he could be money on third down. I don't think he's the YAC monster he once was, but I think there could be a role for him.

    And also as I recall, we even tried restructuring Walter Jones contract to make Hutch the highest paid, but the poison pill contract stated he had to be highest paid starting when that contract was agreed to.

    Harsh, but funny.

    Russ should be thanking Tate, he had a part in ruining Russ's last marriage, but wow look how he upgraded.

  • Nah, would be nice for nostalgia's sake, but there have got to be other/better options out there unless it is a team-friendly deal and comes with no drama.
