Time's up for Alexander?

Postby skinsfan » Mon Oct 23, 2006 8:32 am

Should owners at this point cut their losses and trade Alexander for a QB or top-flight WR? Or a RB like Chester Taylor?

I bought Alexander and Crumpler last week for Dunn and Heap. If Hasselbeck is out for an extended period, I think I will regret the decision.

I've just proposed Alexander and Fitzgerald for Housh and CTaylor. My team's fallen to 2-5 (2 straight losses) and I need to win now, regardless of the cost, to make the postseason with only 4 of 10 teams getting in. But I did make a long-term deal by moving Berrian for Chambers, so who knows?

Absolutely not. The time to do that was a month ago. Now you have to expect that he'll either be back next week or the Sunday following at the latest. Yah, yah. I know about the, "I might be back right away" stuff. But it was a broken bone. 4-6 weeks. I don't expect him to linger any longer. It's not anything mysterious.

So why be the one who holds onto him for a month only to sell him at a discount when he's about to return?

I expect his return by week 9, and if Hass is done for the year (if it's a tear) it's going to be huge for SA, if the team can hold together at all. Could be a big run-heavy second half for Seattle.

I would love it to be a big run-heavy second half for Seattle ;-D There schedule isn't anything special against the run for the exception of S.D and Denver and StL is the only other team that actually can hang in there with Seattle. Again, I would love to see Alexander getting 25 - 35 carries a game ;-D
A win next week and all is forgotten.

If you can get a healthy RB that has been producing the past few weeks for Alexander, I do it in a hurry. Same thing goes for a QB/WR if you have a need in that area.

Fact is, Alexander was not running well even before he broke the foot. Blame it on the week 1 ankle sprain, or you can blame it on the weakened O-line, tough schedule, etc. There are no guarantees that even if Hasselbeck comes back 100%, Maurice Morris and Mack Strong go back to their 1 carry a game average, and SA comes back 100% fully healthy that he will be the same level of RB he has been for the past 5 years (forget record breaking TD Alexander was saw last season).

Face the facts people: Alexander has been valuable on name alone since the end of 2005. If you are a team who is watching your season go into the crapper waiting for your savior to come back next week, I wouldn't bank on it. If you can get a RB like Kevin Jones or Chestor Taylor for Alexander, I would do it in a heartbeat, and I would have done it 2 weeks ago. They can be equally productive, my guess is that they will be more productive, and they are playing and healthy right now.

Perhaps now that SA is expected to return shortly, his value is on the rise. Keep holding onto hope if you want to, just like the guy who hangs onto his "studs" going into week 5 with an 0-4 record.

Well lets see.....Hutchinson leaves SEA and goes to MINN. Taylor instantly becomes a stud. Alexander becomes mediocre and gets hurt. Trade him. If Hass can't come back, Defenses will stack the box it really sucks. I'll probably have to move D. Jax!

If Hass is out for the season, that spells doom for SA, not makes him better!!! SA gets alot of his goalines TDs because of the Seahwaks passing game. Teams will load up on the box and stuff SA unless of course Wallace can beat them in the air

yep, this what will happen when SA comes back, there was no running room earlier in the year and now with Hass out that spells doom for SA.
