    branch and the seahawks

    i for one sure hope that the hawks dont acquire branch. He would be a HUGE addition to their team and they have plenty of room cap wise.

    Superbowl hangover aside, i think the seahawks front office blew it in the offseason. I think they did the same thing the eagles did last year-had plenty of cap room to try and get over the top and instead, they worried too much about long term cap impact and left the money on the table. This is especially eggregious for the hawks after they let hutch go. In my view, they should have signed ty law at the minimum and i have always felt they were weak at wide receiver. Branch would be a perfect addition for him and regardless of what they give up in picks, the acquisition of branch for sure helps them this year.

    What is it about the Seahawks that creates this revolving door of reciever problems? It's actually pretty funny. I'm with you GC, I would hate to see Branch end up in Seattle.

    Re: branch and the seahawks

    mike, to me, a big part of it is that they got completely screwed by koren robinson. A super high first round draft pick with all the talent in the world, he was basically a bust for them. Jackson is a good #2 but really isnt a #1. They havent been able to get a top line #1 and in fairness to them, those guys arent easy to find. Their role players arent bad, but they are missing the big guy at the top and when you make a draft pick that high and he turns out to be a bust, you really pay the price for it, sort of like the revolving door problems we have had at defensive tackle.

    Speaking of busts, I wonder what team has the most number 1 and number 2 picks playing for other teams in the last 5 years. We've got to be near the top.

    Re: branch and the seahawks

    that is a great question fortunehunter. I wonder if nick or one or our other resident geniuses can dig out the answer. Starting in 2000, from a #1 perspective, trung gone, lewis, pickett arch all gone. Not sure how many more we have lost and really not sure how much better or worse we are than anyone else.
