    Seahawks will bring in cheap hungry players
    We will continue to do the opposite and blame the hand of god for our failures

    I like Red Bryant but I don't think Marinelli will. Just looking at his history of the players he brings in everywhere he ha been he likes guys around 300 pounds even his 1 techs. Bryant is over 320, don't see him coming here.

    I knew that would probably happen. Their highest paid players are Red Bryant, Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin......they won that Super Bowl without much impact from those guys. Harvin is going to stay but those other two.....without knowing how much it will cost to cut them I always felt they wouldn't be on the team next year.

    Seahawks organization does A LOT great but its funny that the receiver position is the only one where they fail miserably lol. And to our credit its the one position we do pretty well at drafting lol.

    I really wanted us to draft Bryant coming out of college, and I would like for us to add him now, but as alluded to, I question how he fits. Marinelli seems to favor undersized DTs, and Bryant is far from undersized. He was a rather large DT, but played DE for Seattle. I'm not sure how much Seattle used him, but he really needs to be a 2 down player and if we can sign him for 2 down money, I'd be for it, but teams usually pay a premium for the SB winner's cast offs.

    steelers maintained by drafting or finding athletes that fit their scheme and releasing those who were aging, or not financially viable for years.
    Lloyd, turned to Porter, Porter turned to Harrison.
    I suspect the Seahawks will do the same.

    And yes, I spelled steelers with a small "s":D

    Literally every player Dallas signed on the DLine last year was cheap and hungry. Who was expensive and comfortable? George Selvie?

    All 4 projected starters and the top rotational guy on the DLine were all Cowboys draft picks last year.

    That is because we were scrambling after investing 10+ million in Spencer, hoping Jay Ratliff would be a starter after not playing for 8 months (and being injured before that), and hoping DeMarcus Ware would get better with age. They could have invested that 10 million in Michael Bennett and still signed a couple of guys better than Nick Hayden.

    I agree with you and this is why it baffles me when people insist we're trying to run the same defense as Seattle. So many people rush to cite the Kiffin quote where he told the defense to study Seattle film last offseason, but our ingredients are not remotely close to what's in Seattle's cupboard.

    That and Kiffin is no longer the DC. This is now a Marinelli defense. He will get the guys he wants now.

    That makes sense.

    I remember him losing snaps to Bennett and Avril, but wasn't sure why. Sounds like someone we most likely wouldn't be interested in.

    That's all hindsight and all 4 projected starters were Dallas draft picks. Dallas can't win with you guys. They draft well and sign guys to a second contract and they are blind homers. They let guys walk and the rueing begins. They extend superstars and you guys can't take one down injury year. They avoid a long term extension and use the Franchise Tag and they are idiots that only know how to waste money. They spend big on FA and they don't know how to draft. It never ends.

    No doubt.

    I'm sure with the switch to DC..

    Marinelli was promised the top 5 draft picks were his to draft.

    I'm sure it will be greatly improved this season..

    I didn't hear it..I thought it out loud.

    But really, think about it..

    In our last 2 drafts..

    we have rebuilt the offense and brought in young starter/backup help at WR, TE, OT, OC. RB.

    we are about to do the same thing on defense this year and next..

    I am not aware of what Red will command on the open mkt but the answer to the question is "size doesn't matter". If he can stuff the run and push the pocket we can use a good player.
