    Yeah Seahawks' punter is great so I don't see us doing anything with him.

    Personally I won't be surprised if he doesn't land a NFL job.

    Same here with the Saints. Morstead is a stud. He's going nowhere.

    Yahoo trying to put their own little political spin on Kluwe being cut.

    Yeah ... toooootally about his view on gay marriage. It has absolutely nothing to do w/ the fact that he's a mediocre punter, making way too much money and the Vikings just drafted his replacement.

    He's a Super Bowl hero, how many punters can make that claim?

    Seriously. I cant stand when people try and twist shit to make it mean more than it really does. Its like those people who get fired from their job and immediately are screaming racism, when in reality they just werent very good at their job. I highly doubt if Tom Brady came out and was pro-gay rights the Patriots would cut him for it. Hell, if this was about gay rights at all they would've cut Chris Kluwe YEARS AGO. Its not he just now started. Some sports writers ignorance astounds me.

    He's not the only one, apparently, there was news of this other ex-player that got arrested 3 times in 9 days. Tells you what a slow news day it is when that + Tebow + Jets is all the news that's being featured.

    First it was a DUI, then he tried to break into the impound lot on the same day.

    Sounds like Gronkowski will need a 4th surgery on his arm.

    Not sure if he'll be ready to start the season. I'm out and on my phone atm. I'll try to provide a link later.

    Got ya covered http://tracking.si.com/2013/05/08/ro...roken-forearm/

    Looking at 11 weeks after he has the 4th surgery. And they won't operate till the infection he's been batteling is gone. So even if he could be operated next week that would still mean late July before he's done recovering.

    With little WR depth, and 1 TE missing and the other TE also recovering and not ready till September, it's going to be hard to do much offensively in training camp. I'm seriously hoping we can get it together early in the season, with all this stuff going on.

    " Gronkowski is going to need a fourth operation to replace the plate that secures the broken bone in his forearm. That fourth surgery has long been expected and isn’t considered a major problem."

    Sounds completely normal.

    First surgery after he broke it the first time.
    Second after he broke it the second time, probably adding the plates.
    Third for infection.
    Fourth to remove the plates, and check on the infection.

    Ronde Barber is retiring after 21 seasons http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/92...iring-16-years

    Didn't even know he was still playing. First ballot Hall of Famer for sure.

    NFL.com has the Seahawks in the Superbowl, winning against the Bronco's. It's all based on voting by site visitors, so it's basically a good indication what the average person thinks should happen. (Though I suppose there'll be a fair share of people voting against certain teams, more so then for the other team). Still this is a pretty nice endorsement for the Seahawks from the Football watching public.

    I still don't buy the whole read option QB gimmick. Eventually someone will find a way to shut it down and the Seattle+SF hype will die down.

    Yeah. Even when we went to the super bowl nobody thought we would do anything.

    Wilson and Kaepernick can both pocket throw very well.

    Thing is, people often think we're running a read option play when really it turns into a read option because Russell ends up scrambling a lot.

    That being said, I doubt anybody will be stopping Seattles read option. Especially with Marshawn + Percy lined up as backs. No read option team really has the offensive weapons Seattle has right now. Also the first defenses to "figure it out" will be the ones that play the read option in practice.

    It'll go the way of the wildcat, probably this upcoming season. But I think Wilson and Kapernick have the ability to transition into more traditional offences when the time comes.

    Seattle is so overhyped. All of it from one impressive win (the 42-13 game against SF). The two previous blowouts were against teams that had completely quit. I'll take Green Bay and San Fran over Seattle any day as far as potential NFC Champs. And this is coming from a Bears fan.

    Thing is, the Wildcat was able to mildly irritate defenses, and keep a few teams hanging on in limited situations. Read option just straight up was blowing teams up cause they had no answer to it. I agree that teams will figure it out and find ways to stop it, but I doubt it's going to be as easy or as quickly as it was with the wildcat.
