    You guys just draft Kellen Moore with our 12 pick. He might not have any physical attributes it takes to be an NFL QB but at least his football IQ is off the charts!! He'll be the next Zorn!!!

    So you want to draft a guy like Flynn instead of signing Flynn? I get where you are coming from and agree, but I don't think the Flynn signing precludes them from doing such.

    We get THE prize of F/A at the most important position on the field and some of you rip him...Unreal...Seattlefans always attract bad shit because even when something good happens its mocked...

    Flynn is a bigger prize than Peyton, Flynn will be in Seattle in 5 years (more like 10+) while Peyton plays 2 or 3 (if that) in Denver and retires leaving them a hole at QB that will probably take awhile to fix...

    Enjoy being bitter I guess...I won't even talk THAT MUCH trash back to y'all after Matthew wins us a Division title this year..

    I still find it hard to believe ANYONE is that high on Flynn... But the fact that its 94 kind of blows my mind. That's not to say that I think you're wrong about him, just that this is odd considering you're a difficult one to please... What is it that you see that we're all missing? What trait/ability does Flynn possess that's going to bring us a Lombardi Trophy? Because it seems like most of us have a ton of questions about him and you have nothing but faith he'll be great... Is it just the paralells between how we acquired him and how we acquired Hasselbeck? Both backups to all-pro, super bowl winning QBs in Green Bay, both acquired by us after winning a bidding war with Miami, both came to a team coached by a head coach who learned under Walsh, both named Matt... All sounds cool, but doesn't really mean much on tthe field. Again, I'm not saying you're wrong... It just seems like, even though most of us support this move, you have an opinion different than most of ours and I just wonder what that opinion is base on. Especially since its different than what we've come to expect from you.

    Also since, you like the Flynn move so much, how does that effect your stance on Carroll?

    No I don't want to draft a guy like Flynn, when I can draft a 3-4-5 round QB with some size and some arm strength and develop him. Apparently Portis isn't cutting it , so move on.

    Matthew = Hasselbeck.
    Matt = Flynn.

    Ida - I guess my question is, what makes you think any of those guys in the 3, 4, or 5th rounds will be any better than Flynn? In fact, history says the middle of the draft is the worst place to find a quarterback.

    94 - I gotta side with flip on this. What do you see that makes you so sure?

    I find it, um, at least entertaining, that we have two people, Ida and 94, that are so polar opposite on this. I am hoping for some good dialogue.

    Ida, you want a guy with arm strengtth yet you're calling for Kellen Moore?

    Flynn has an average to above average arm. His arm won't limit him that much.

    I like Kellen Moore and I asked the question Kellen Moore a Seahawk ? Never have said we should draft him , only that I want us to for obvious reasons.

    Ida is a hater, 94 is a lover, Bob and 18 are riding the fence (typical) and I am siding with 94 on this one.
    Flynn has soooo many pros and only a couple of cons.... but I'll defer to the dark lord for now.

    I'll turn that question around , what makes anyone think we can't find a better QB, these kids are coming up more pro ready then ever before , even then 5 years ago when Flynn came up. I don't dislike the guy its a Cinderella story in a way, he hardly played at LSU , made the pros, never played unless you count one real game a mop up game and a meaningless game all while driving a Cadillac of an offense and now may be the starter for his own team. There is at best just minimal evidence for Flynn being able to play at a high level for 16 games or more and he totally benefited from the entire Manning situation, to go from a few hundred thousand a year to millions, good for him. Just not sold until he hits the field as it is with any player ? Just because he is now a Seahawk doesn't mean I can't be skeptical.
    I want some proof and 2.5 games is not enough.

    That's why I quoted Dennis Green " go crown his ass " I'll wait and see

    Skeptisism is a good thing.

    What do you mean meaningless game? He played the lions who were playing for playoff spot. That is what makes that performance so amazing and legit. Set all time GB records for TD's and Yards in passing!
