Seattle RB in 2005

Postby King Tim » Sat Aug 21, 2004 12:44 am

So who do you guys think will be the man next year in Seattle..........Alexander or Mo Morris? I know its a strange question but I'm in the middle of a deal in which I'd send Crumpler and my 1st and 2nd rnd rookie picks for next year (14 team dynasty draft) for KWII and Mo Morris. Is Alexander going to be gone after the year? Is Morris the real deal? If most feel Morris is the man, I'm pulling the trigger. Any info is appreciated ;-D

You're giving up all that just to get KWII and a backup RB?

That's why I'm asking the question of who will be the guy in Seattle next year? I've heard Alexander won't be in SEA and Mo will take over. I'm not close to the Seahawks situation. If that is the case, I'm giving all that up for a stud TE and a potential starting stud RB.

Last I heard, SA is on record saying he wants to return to SEA next year. I wouldn't be overly excited about getting Maurice Morris since we have no clue what he can do as a starter. You seem to be giving up an awful lot for some maybes. Why are you so high on Winslow anyway?

I wouldn't do that. Mo Morris hasn't even shown he can do it all by himself, even if he would be the guy.

Well, I'd love for Morris to be the guy because Alexander has moved to my Dolphins.....that said I seriously doubt the Seahawas let Alexander go anywhere.

I really like Crumpler this year, I have him ranked ahead of Winlsow so I wouldn't do it. You're losing a stud next year and possibly 2 depending on how deep the rookie pool is next season. Who's to say Seattle wouldn't pull someone else in if SA left? I haven't heard any promises that Morris gets the job. I'd stay where you're at.

I don't think I would do the trade it's much too risky on your part. However, I strongly doubt that the Seahawks will be able to resign Hasselback, franchise Walter Jones and keep Alexander in the fold. I would count on Morris being the starter at the beginning of next season as the coaching staff loves him, and were going to bench Alexander for Morris in 2002 before Morris got hurt. If they let Alexander go, Morris will be the guy.

This is the reason I drafted him in my dynasty league.

There's been alot of concern about Morris' durability. The Seahawk fan forum has hit on this alot. They think Alexander will be there next year. If he does go, they seem to think Morris is not durable enough to carry the load all year.

Alexander

Seattle tried to trade Alexander to Washington for Bailey. Bottome line, they know after next season they won't be able to as someone said, keep hasselbeck/jones/ and alexander. Now i don't think morris is the answer from what we've seen from him yet, but that could change. Free Agents and the Draft may replace Alexander if things stay as they are.
