  • An excellent career he should be proud of. A tip of the cap to him.

  • I just feel bad he wasted some of his peek years in our inept offense that barely utilized him.

    Regardless, nice career you made for yourself Jimmy.

  • Good WR more so than a TE. Probably help change the game at that position. Disappeared in hard hitting games and avoided the dirty parts of the field.

  • Jimmy had an interesting run in Seattle. He's the franchise leader in TE receiving yards, he set the franchise record for TE TDs in a season, and he did all of that coming off a pretty severe injury that robbed him of his athleticism. I'm not sure why some people in our fan base hate on him. He wasn't a great fit, but he definitely wasn't the thing holding us back.

    Agreed. Pro Bowl 2/3 of his seasons here too.

    The standard in fans minds was Zach Miller, and Jimmy was just a completely different type of player.

    Being book-ended by Miller and Dissly doesn't do him any favors in terms of perception.

  • Still don't understand why they traded for him and then under utilized him.

    Not only underutilized him but used him in the wrong manner i.e. trying to make an inline TE that also blocks out of him.

    Nope. His rookie year was 2010. His first playoff game was the Beastquake. :lol:

    All of them that didn't follow a season-ending injury incurred for your amusement. Are you not entertained? :roll:

    And the fact that he wasn’t a good fit wasn’t even his fault.

    But acting like a jackass over catching a pass because it
    was against us hit my nerve in that game..

  • Another example of the Hawks seemingly not knowing what to do with the talent they have...Wilson comes to mind .
