    Wow...!!!

    This should really help Geno...

    Will be interesting to see if Paul Richardson starts getting involved in Seattle's offense now.

    Mid-round pick.

    My guess is Harvin expressed frustration with his role and Carroll decided to end that experiment and revert back to the power run game / read option.

    their offensive coordinator said this week 'i must find a way to feed lynch.'
    if you take wilson's receivers, then you are forced to run the ball. =)

    Bevell was misusing him. You'd think after seeing him in the Washington MNF game that he'd be used more as a WR, not just gadget plays.

    I wish more teams tried to shake things up with midseason trades. Only Pats and Hawks treat their teams like the NBA.

    Guess getting beat by Dallas makes you want to blow up your team?

    The Seahawks FO effed up really bad on this one. Essentially he made 2 mil per game, and they gave up 3 picks to MIN for him, and received a conditional one now. Jets fans must be a little thrilled that there's something to talk about, and maybe Rex can delay termination talks a little longer.

    Russell is about to get a huge extension, so some flexibility is retained. However, Percy has been largely ineffective this season. Seahawks could've done just fine without making this move in the first place.

    Rick Smith sighs.
