Exactly! As is the 'let's hang OB for everything' crowd
Credit to the offense, but I must say that Atlanta Falcons defense was just astrocious. Guys constantly out of position like it was the first time they were on the field together.
I was ok with trading him for future cap reasons. But they took on a bad contract (mingo) and then paid half his salary. At that point I would just have him play on the tag for one year
Yeah, I cannot defend the Clowney deal even if I wanted to. Originally I read a lot about Martin's speed and pass rushing, but don't see it, so we basically got a stable locker room and the press asking football questions instead of the circus we would have had asking each week about him, wondering if we would be better etc. I would have let him sit and said no comment to any questions, just waiting for next year or a contender with an injury this year, I also would have tried for him to be one of the 1's we traded to Miami (after failing to move by july), which set the circus in motion, so I guess I stub my toe too there
Agree with what you said but Miami didn’t want him. They are in full rebuild And Clowney with his unimproving stats and want of big money deal wouldn’t fit into that plan. He’s not even a guy like Watt that you can plan your defense around and make the face of the franchise.
They were going to trade for him, probably to just trade him again or let him leave next year.
They could have just let him play on the tag. It wasn't until the trade to Miami came up and Clowney didn't want to sign the tag and go there that it became a circus.
Yeah, we needed Tunsil now, they could sit on Clowney til some contender got hurt or the offseason when a partner could crack open the contract and probably get a reasonable deal. Us letting him sit was not as easy and we looked desperate, but we never get the full details
Yeah, but I think we had Miami convinced, so we could have saved one of those valuable 1st rounders we all ***** about. Clowney said no way
Yeah I think so
Why not just let him play? Then trade him or let him walk or tag him again.
After five games he has “accumulated” 3 solo tackles, 1 int, 1 sack, 1 FF...on track for 10 tackles this season...1.6 $$MM per tackle.
There’s a reason for fan vitriol towards BoB. It is deeper than X’s and O’s. It’s deeper than wins and losses. It’s the reason even as I defended him I understood the criticism and anger towards him.
The media is a direct conduit to the fans. As long as BoB refuses to give straight answers to softball questions after a loss, and looks at the media with disdain he’s going to remain one of the least popular sports figures in Houston.
What are the grades of Martin and Mingo?
@asiansportsman: Per @PFF, the top 5 highest-graded Seahawks through Week 5 are:
Russell Wilson - 90.7
Jadeveon Clowney - 84.5
Will Dissly - 81.1
Quinton Jefferson - 75.9
Shaquill Griffin - 75.7
(min: 100 snaps)

@steelbtexan just used a poor choice of words to get his point across.
This back and forth about "stupid" is adding nothing to the conversation - You guys need to let it go , stop talking about each other and talk about football.
You’re a couple of days late. We’ve moved on already.
I'm very curious to see which Obrien will show up against the Chiefs.
I surely hope its the one we seen this past Sunday against the Falcons.
You mean Watson showing up too?
I predict Watson is going to have a really good game this week. (Not as good as last week) The Chiefs are missing both of their DT's one of which is their best defensive player Chris Jones.
