"As long as"?- If he played all 16 games, then yeah, he'd have a good chance. But, if he's still a Hawk, the team will find he's injured (meaning fabricate one) and force him to the bench by late in the season. I don't dispute that he can't serve a role and be a productive member. I don't think he's useless. However, his presence (and Deion Branch's) impede the young, skill WRs behind them. It's an issue they need to rectify.

So, what kind of sig bet you talking?

You haven't been following Carroll's mantra of competition. I honestly don't think he cares if these guys get reps, he'd rather them fight and win it instead of be gifted it. You're also automatically assuming the Seahawks aren't going to be competitive, but in a weak division a 9-7 record is going to take the NFC West.

In terms of a sig bet, it sounds like you'd take the under on 900 and I'm taking the over. Is there much else to discuss?


Yeah, he's trying to instill competition. Too bad he doesn't have much to work with.

I'm not really assuming so much as not bothering to mention it- I was assuming it was so obvious it wasn't worth pointing out. It sounds like you disagree. I'd be willing to wager they won't win more than 6 games. And yes, there is more to discuss- I've never done one. What happens when I win? :-)


I'm not betting anything on Seahawks wins because they could just as easily go 6-10 as 9-7. Anything outside that will be a surprise for me, either way.

I will however take a sig bet on the over for Housh and 900 yards; and again, only as long as he plays in 13+ games for Seattle. If he gets injured for more than 3 games the bet is off and if he gets traded the bet is off. The winner of the bet gets to choose the sig of the loser and the loser has to wear it from the end of the season until the beginning of the 2011 season.

I'd almost agree with that- except the "as long as he plays in 13+ games"- If he's still a Seahawk late in the season, I'd bet he'd get injured (a phantom mostly likely) so they can get the youngsters PT. That's an important part to me- it sounds like it's a caveat to you.

Ok, then DON'T back up your words. :-D

Seriously, the Seahawks aren't the Patriots with phantom injuries to stash young players for a full season on IR. If Housh is in Seattle and healthy he'll play. Fortunately for you and your running mouth it kind of sounds like Housh is going to get the heave-ho on Saturday one way or another.

I made my position clear from the beginning-

I don't think they'd stash him on IR for the full season, just be questionable or GTD for the last month or so- then not play him.

With the WR issues they have, and if he is cut, going to Minnesota might still be a possibility.
