  • In the day of throw away 1-2 year rentals on players, I’m old school enough to appreciate long term relationships with key guys.


    I’m not unhappy with this extension in any way.

    He's definitely a number 1 caliber receiver, but he's the second best overall on the team as it stands.


    No he is not. His hands, catches, tds, toe taps and ability to get open say otherwise. Oh yeah and his yac too. Dk is not the only one who breaks away. Yeah sure tyler will go down easy, but it usually after a massive gain or trying to slide under tackles. Dk literally has nothing on him but size.


    Its so crazy how DK keeps getting the #1 cb and double teams every week


    Oh yeah you right. Dk not very many catches vs Ramsey. Good argument. Dk is outside. Tyler moves around. Avoiding all the coverage. Dk stays and attracts number 1s then switch sides and move around CBs. Even ramsey didnt cover dk for whole games. Get out of here with that $h!t. There is no such thing is a number one corner anymore. None can play the ball and none switch from outside-slot man up. You can say how he attracts the attention all you want. That's cool...tyler in the middle, tyler in the flat, tyler will beat you deep. Dk is just getting used to all the routes and adaptations that tyler does. Crazy. People overlook incredible players.

    DK, while apparently still learning, put up a season 300 yards above Tyler's peak... on 17 less receptions than Tyler last year... sooooo....

    *Because you automatically win the game if you have the receiver with the most toe-taps.*

    This might be the dumbest $h!t I've ever read and not nearly what I said^^^^

    Nice try though

    *Yeah, no. DK is better overall. Bigger, faster, stronger, healthier (both are healthy, but Tyler obviously plays injured more), and more productive. That's not a slight to Tyler, but this is not even remotely close to a competition.*


    Dude you might be some type of special. Tell me when dk makes a catch with 99 percent of his body out of bounds in the back of the endzone. Never. Wont happen. How productive is dk? Oh in yards recieving...cool. What is more important? Yards or catches. You would say yards of course. You love the big play too huh? And only dk can do it! Like tyler never caught a deep ball one handed or anything. Anyway...Knowing the unrational posts you seem to make... so let's see....100 catches for lockett this year...over 1000 yards for dk this year....yeah with less catches...cool...1000 yards for tyler. Both had 10 tds. Keep in mind who moves the chains more. Does 83 catches for 129 attempts or is it 100 catches in 132 attempts. Oh yeah in your head yards equal scores right? Sometimes. Given. Well how'd they get an equal amount of tds. Idk.
    What in the world has you thinking dk is better than lockett? Bigger and faster means what? To your ideal of production from dk? They are literally were similar in stats and you've come to this reasoning. How?

    Who is better Calvin Johnson or Jerry rice? Bigger stronger means nothing. Ecspecially if you cant catch. I mean what's the use in a jump ball anyway and how did Jimmy Graham do on our team after several years of overproducing in N.O. being a bigger, stronger reciever. He was ok for the Hawks.

    Getting open period is more important. Tyler is better at it, more consistent and has better hands. You dont need to be big and fast. That's an image.

    You are concerned with how players look vs actual production. Flashes not reality.

    Dk is a good reciever. Will probably be great, but even if he has a 18 td season, he will never accomplish some of the things Baldwin, Lockett, Tate or Kearse have done. Dk may catch one short and take it to the house or catch one deep beating one on one coverage. He will probably never make extremely difficult catches look simple.

    Oh, look, the laughingstock of .Net calling people special. Absolutely laughable.

    Anyway, yeah, receiving yards kind of matter. Especially when we're talking about DK racking up 1300 of them - nearly 300 more than Lockett last season. DK doesn't have the better hands, but is CLEARLY the more productive receiver of the two.

    Most of the rest of your post is nearly illegible as to conveying your train of thought. I'll reply as best I can to some of this meandering word-vomit.

    What in the world has you thinking dk is better than lockett? Bigger and faster means what?


    It means bigger and stronger. Almost like athleticism matters or something.

    Ecspecially if you cant catch.


    Players who can't catch don't get 1300 yards on 83 receptions. Don't cheer for DK if you don't like him.

    Getting open period is more important. Tyler is better at it


    Oh, yeah. Yards after catch and average yards per reception don't matter, only pass catches. Might as well pass 150 times to Homer next year for an average of 4 yards a pop, because that's better. More catches, more better. What a fantastic, nuanced viewpoint.

    Dk may catch one short and take it to the house or catch one deep beating one on one coverage.


    Yeah, he did lots of those. Like 83 of them last year. For 1300 yards. I'm the one looking at actual production. You're looking at toe taps and how you feel about how hard DK makes catches look, I'm looking at actual stats.

    Ramsey may have taken a few plays off, but he was on DK almost all game. PP21? also on DK. Slay was on DK(who dk abused. Gilmore? on DK. there on always assignments and changes but dk is drawing #1 cbs and he is drawing double teams on the regular especially once he started going off. he dictates coverage. I love Tyler he is great, and he had a great season, but I think his numbers should of been even better because DK took a lot of attention off of him this year. I think another reason we need a good #3 wr, but here we are.

    Time will tell but DK has potential to be on pace to be the greatest seahawk receiver we have ever seen and you are talking about him passing the great things that lockett kearse baldwin have done? He just broke the all time yards record :roll:

  • Those petty "my favorite is better than your favorite" arguments completely miss the essence of team sports .........

    "You know they're so uniquely different," Carroll said. "They're just uniquely different in style and in all. The result is you throw it to them and they catch it, and they make plays and they make big plays. The consistency I think is really the thing that jumps out—Tyler's been doing it for years. Think how long he's been good, and he just continues to be unique and special… DK just continues to be impressive, and in a totally different fashion. They get along well, they learn from each other, they help each other, they have good relationship and all that. That's always helped with our young guys that the older guys will take them under the wing; Tyler's been like that with DK the whole time." https://www.seahawks.com/news/seahawks-wr-tyler-lockett-signs-multi-year-contract-extension

    DK and TL just run different routes and catch different balls. I'm not a stats-king - but take some of the first read DK rainbow passes out of the first half of the season - and let's see how he matches up with TL in the second half of the season once there was some deep ball coverage on defenses!

    I LOVE me some TL. The price does seem a BIT rich to me.

    Wanna love DK. If he gives me a season without blowups and grabbing TV cameras in the stands - he'll start to win me over a bit more. A little too Sherman for me ATM.

    TL = ADB with more class? Dare I say? Although in all honesty, ADB was the $h!t:

    Again, Loves me some TL and BWagz. Just go about their business without being head cases.

    Once Russ learns that there's a SHORTER/MIDDLE OF THE FIELD with the new OC hopefully this year, all the short route receivers and tight ends should have a better year IMO ;) Gimmie 3 TL's/ADB's for every single DK, every year.
