Sharper to Seattle????
 
Someone on another message board said, "I was listening to sporting news radio.Driving home for work last night when a caller came on from Houston claiming to have a inside source with the Texans and said that Sharper might be traded to the Seahawks." I was just wondering if any of you Texans fans had hear anything about this?

I heard the call last night. Could have been anyone. Seattle has invited Hartwell to talk about a contract though, so they could very well be talking to Sharper.

First ive heard of it. Most of the rumors here have the Texans trading Sharper +13 to Cleveland for #3

Vinny 03-08-2005 11:26 AM

I wouldn't put much stock in that Browns rumor. The fans may want it but there is no way the Browns are seriously considering that.

unidentified sources over the radio from callers are crapshoots

If you read that little part that says, "could have been anyone", it gives a small clue that I really think that it very well could have been anyone. That includes someone who knows Jamie, to well...anyone, including the Dairy Queen guy.

Is it really a "rumor"? Or just some madeup trade by a poster on dawgtalk? Does anyone have a link? The trade seems absurd for the Browns & absurd for Sharper (thought he wanted to go to a winner). Do the Texans really want to pay anyone in this draft #3 money?

Knowing Casserly, No Way!! We're too busy giving the money to injury-prone "old guys".

I know this is a bit off subject but, why does Houston do this? It's not just the Texans, but the Rockets and Astros do the same thing. Why do we always pick up guys on the down side of their careers? We never go after the "big fish". Last year was the first time I saw it when we signed Clemens(he is still at the top of his game) and when we tried to throw Beltran some cash but went for the bigger pay day, but that's a whole other story. It's like we're too scared to take a chance, so we opt for the "middle of the road" kinda guy that isn't gonna cost us much but won't get us to the title. I'm tired of our teams seen as great contenders but not enough to make it.

I read on another message board (espn) from a non Texan fan who owns a restaurant where Sharper was dining at.....who apparently overheard suppossedly imminent trade talk with Seattle???

Who knows. All just rumors at this point.

Your logic is flawed....you actually think Yao/T-Mac aren't big time players? If u think T-mac isn't, then hey, go find a new team or something.

You want the the Texans to OVERSPEND for some FA that, with one injury, makes us look like fools...yeah ok, u stay in whereever that little world is...

Rosusu 03-08-2005 12:57 PM

Then how about Hakeem, Clyde Drexler, Sam Cassell, Robert Horry?

Errant Hothy 03-08-2005 12:57 PM

For a town that's only won two porfessional titles the answer is no, but it ahsn't been from a lack of trying. I'll add to the list Barkley, Drexler, Pippen, Ryan, Randy Johnson, and there are more. To say thats as a whoel that this town dosn't watn to win is whole off base and a bit unimaginitive.

Bayern 03-08-2005 01:06 PM

Lets not get off the subject fellas :rolleyes:

Allright so assuming there is some validity to this rumor about Sharper and the Seahawks, Do they have any FA's we'd be interested in? Draft picks?

I never said T-mac wasn't a great player. I love T-mac, and Yao I'm afraid isn't really living up to the hype. One guy can't do it alone. And who said anything about overspending? You should read carefully instead of seeing only what you want to see. So you're saying the Eagles are fools? Are the Heat fools? Are the Yankees fools? They knew what it took and they got their man. Owens led the Eagles to the Bowl. The Heat can't be stopped with Shaq. and now the Yankees are on their way back to the series. They are so overloaded with fire power it's ridiculous.

You are all over the place with your argument. Astros were 1 game away, Rox are a new team that will take time to put the other pieces together, and we all know the Texans are on the 5 year plan.

BACK to the Sharper trade..... what in the world could Seattle be offering if these rumors ARE true?

ThaShark316 03-08-2005 01:14 PM

Heat and Eagles made a trade for their big-time players.... :whistle:


Back to live action....I dunno what SEA would give us, prolly just draft picks.. :thumbup

OK, even knowing this is off-topic, have to say something. How in Hades did Owens lead the Eagles to the Bowl? The Eagles got one step shy the past three years without TO--this year they got through that last step without TO playing. That is just player hype talking--they got a superstar it must be the reason they got to the SB.
