He is one of the best HEALTHY backs in the league. I hope that my favorite team gets him (eventhough it would make no sense).
Man, I'll NEVER forget that game he had against the Gators at the Swamp. What a performance. I'm sure Gambini will never forget it, either.
Heh, amen to that. Incredible game.
Anyway, I'm one of those Seattle fans who don't agree with all this stuff about Alexander not being that great. I admit that he sometimes doesn't put down a shoulder in order to run over someone, but he improves every year. And while, I hate to say it, I agree with bagobonez. The guy doesn't put up those kind of numbers (only Priest has more TD's in a 2 year span) if he is just mediocre. And I'm sure we all know that the whole "inconsistent" label is a hoax. Shaun scored in 13 of the 16 games last season.
That said, it's going to be really hard for the Seahawks to keep him, but I hope they at least make an attempt. Carter and Morris are talented, but they are still very unproven. I'm terrified of a situation where we run Alexander out of town thinks we can just throw Morris or Carter in there with the same sucess and they bust.
Losing Shaun Alexander, if it happens, will be a sad day in Seattle.
