    How much better is Adams over Xavier Woods? Certainly not enough to warrant that ridiculous haul.

    hawks play against rams and 49ers in the west. the safety spot was more important to them. sometimes it's not just about the player per se, but the need to be strong against division rivals. we''ve been able to beat the eagles, giants and wft without great safeties.

    I won't argue that at all. In particular, I thought that they've done an amazing job in their transition from the Legion of Boom to their current team. It was expected that there would be a significant rebuild process and a dropoff, but that really hasn't been the case. The Seahawks have remained a formidable team, even during this transition. That's a credit to Carroll and the front office, especially considering the draft misses they've had.

    The "old adage" part threw me, but yeah, that's funny.

    True that,, just kind of curious about the infatuation Pete has, just interests me is all.
    I love a football mind like a Jimmy Johnson,, not saying pete is even close,, but interesting thought and control of an organization... a lot of control in Seattle to the HC,, as close as BB in NE.

    Yeah, the Cowboys don't try to win over the fans at all. You're right.

    I like how all the other 31 teams have conference calls and press conferences explaining their thoughts and strategies the day after the draft just like Dallas does.

    "We took Jaylon because we thought New England wanted him"

    "We drafted him there because Detroit was going to take him"

    "If we didn't trade up for Claiborne we would have drafted Michael Brockers and Bobby Wagner"

    "I had to be talked out of Johnny Manziel and to this day, my feeling in my gut, tells me we should have taken him"

    It would have been a fleecing if we gave up Woods, 2-1sts, and a 3rd rounder for Adams. Glad that didn't go down.

    Pete likes to funnel rb's to the safeties. Much different than what other teams do.

    Until we build a dominant defensive line, we need to concentrate on that.

    Best move all off season was missing out on giving those picks
    With the cap situation coming picks become very much more valuable because they get you cheaper player to help manage your cap

    Assumed as much....to give up that much Seattle had to have competition.

    Glad we didn’t give up two firsts.

    The Hawks are all in and it’s their choice. Their Super Bowl team featured a defense that gave up only 4200 Yds for the season which is the lowest of any team in the last 10 seasons. Oh geez did I just say that Russell Wilson won a super bowl with the best Defense of the last decade?? Oh Mama mia!
