Marshawn Lynch to Seattle


Ugh. Read here from PFT. (Thanks 56Coop for pointing this out – friend at work just showed me too).

Frustrating. Seattle apparently gets Lynch for a 4th rounder in 2011 and a conditional in 2012. The Packers could have easily parted with that. Quite frustrating. Of course, we don’t know what happened behind the scenes and what all the factors were that may have killed this for us, but it’s really frustrating to me that TT continues to sit on the side at moments when taking a bit of a free agent chance could really help the team.

(A little surprising the Seattle took the leap here when they have Forsett and Leon Washington. Particularly a slap in the face to Washington who may be one of the top 2-3 back-up RBs in the NFL – the guy deserves a starting spot).

I’m going to have to work on starting up new rumors now – like our interest in DeAngelo Williams, or perhaps Ricky Williams (who still looks so good running the ball), or Jamaal Charles, or Tashard Choice, or McGahee, or Michael Bush – or ANYONE!

    Damn….A fourth rounder and a conditional 6th or 5th is more then fair for Lynch. I understand that I don’t have all the information but it is frustrating that TT cannot finish a deal. He let the Moss deal fall through the cracks. The Gonzalez deal was close and he couldn’t finalize that deal. It wouldn’t surprise me if we find out in a few weeks that a deal with the Packers was in place and Schneider stepped in a took it away from TT at the last moment.

    I have been a defender of TT for years but this year is really testing my resolve as I don’t think he is handling the roster like he should this year. I’m not sure he is the guy that can put it all together the way Wolf or other top GM’s slide in the last puzzle pieces at the right times.

    Seattle also released Julius Jones. MAy be a decent target for the pack. Better than a 5.8 40 starting running back

    this reminds me to much of when we could have had moss for a 3rd. i thought mosss could have put us over the top in what was to be favres last year but apparently that allan barbre was to much to give up. same thing here, we have an awesome team that has a very weak spot and we seem content not making a real run when we have a team very capable of it.

    This from Pro Football talk:

    Well, Bill Simmons was right.

    Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the Vikings and the Patriots are working on a trade that would send receiver Randy Moss back to Minnesota, the place where his career began.

    Glazer reports that the deal, which is close, hinges on the Vikings working out terms of a new contract with Moss, who is signed through 2010.

    Ironically, the Vikings were widely believed to have a deal in place with receiver Vincent Jackson, but that they couldn’t work out the terms of a trade.

    Stay tuned.

    I would have liked to see the trade happen, but I wonder if Buffalo doesn’t know something we don’t. If he was all that an a bag of chips as some seem to think, why was he third on their depth chart, why did they spend a first rounder on a different back and why was he unable to get the job done when he was given chances this year.

    I know he has off field problems, but is there more wrong with him? Based on his production this year (and last?) I am not convinced that he would have been that much of a step up from Jackson.

    All that said, I think I would have pulled the trigger for a 4th round pick.

    But I think that TT is looking for a placeholder not a replacement for Grant. We’ll sign someone older like a Julius Jones who can come in and carry the ball and go away next year when Grant is back. Grant is TT’s guy – got him for a 6th round pick.
