Talk radio out here in Seattle has been buzzing about this for a few days. I guess the idea came up in the scurry right before having to name your franchize player and what not. The radio guys out here seemed to like the idea. While I have never been a big Shaun (father of heaven) fan, Morris is a step down in talent I think.

My guess is that Shaun isn't going anywhere and I think that is a good thing for Seahawks. People out here don't love Shaun because he isn't a "tough" runner. Doesn't get dirty until he is at the goal line. Ticks people off. Still no reason to put a lesser talent in the backfield.

In a few days the ink will be dry on the Champ to Denver for Portis deal and the hype will go away.

PS Seattle radio guys are the same ones who think taking home town hero R. Williams WR Wash in the first round is a good idea. Jeeze!

Trade Alexander

Seems to me that the Holmgren system revolves around the QB not the RB. If Edgar Bennett and Dorsey Levens can be the starting RB's for Super Bowl teams, then certainly Maurice Morris could fit the bill.

if that trade were to happen (bailey for alexander) me being a seahawks fan would love that. I have said right away when bailey was put on the trade block that seattle should trade alexander for him and let maurice morris start at RB. Morris reminds me a lot like deshaun foster and LT. They all are fast, shifty type rinners, can catch great out of the backfield and have big play written all over them. That trade would be awesome and would solve the problem of the seahawks getting beat deep repeatedly.

Sorry, but no. Bailey is good, but he's no god. One good CB can't prevent any team from getting beat deep. Shaun's a top 6 or 7 RB and it sounds like he's starting to become underrated.

I was about to post the same thing.

If Seattle were to trade Shaun Alexander, I doubt it would be for cornerback help. The Seahawks are starting to develop some talented cornerbacks in Marcus Trufant and Ken Lucas.

Their main concern has got to be on the defensive line, which is terrible.
