Seahawk front office is earning their pay! They land 2 of the top 10 free agents to improve their already incredible D. Now they've dumped 7+ million this season and 9+ million next off their cap by moving Flynn to the raiders. Those will be big savings come next season when we get some pretty big names hitting contract seasons.

Looks like the raiders will move Palmer to Arizona

Didn't they trade for Palmer for two 1st round picks? And they just traded him to Arizona after just 2 seasons. lol When you look at the numbers though, Palmer had a pretty good year last season. When will they learn the QB can't do it all by himself? Oh well the Raiders will always be the Raiders. The laughing stock of the NFL.

At least Marty Hurney didn't fug us as bad as the Raiders FO has. My god that Palmer trade looked horrible when it happened, now it looks abysmal. Seahawks are priming themselves to be a force to be reckoned with in the NFC for a good number of years

I mean Palmer had over 60% completion percentage, had 20 some touchdowns and a QB rating of 85. Yea the Palmer trade was still bad considering what they gave up, but they just made it worse for getting rid of him. They should be looking into more troublesome areas like offensive line, which has been a problem of theres for almost a decade. Palmer was good enough to at least get them a winning record if they knew how to fix their bigger problems.

Flynn, to this point, is still one of those guys who made a reputation off of one great game performance and has yet to live up to it since.

I don't really know if Oakland is the place where you wanna go to try and rebuild your rep.

I think he just wants to be a starting QB- nothing about rebuilding rep

It's kind of a trade off, there.

Kinda like "Good news. We got you a co-starring role in a movie."

"Cool. What kind of flick is it?"

"It's a new Pauly Shore film" :blink:

I totally agree Mr. Scot. Many Seahawk fans, myself included were happy to see Flynn come to Seattle a year ago. Myself, because I wasn't a big fan of T Jackson...but far too many fans thought he was going to be the next big thing. In my opinion, maybe he might be, but he's really just a rookie QB with more sideline experience! It will be interesting to see if he starts in Oakland and how he makes out, but I've been thinking we should have dropped him for a long time. Pretty big price tag to have on the sidelines carrying the clipboard.

Would've been a good trade for Arizona in 2009.
It'll be fun to watch Fitzgerald with a competent QB again.

Hadn't thought of that.

Definitely could be interesting.

The Raiders should be banned from trading.

 

That or the NFL needs to give compensatory picks to them for being so stupid.
