Seahawks fans have become fuging insufferable after last season.  If it's not Russell Wilson, it's Bobby Wagner.  If it's not Bobby Wagner, it's Marshawn Lynch.  And of course, Richard Sherman.

 

Those fugers are popping up everywhere now randomly throwing out one of those names.

 

Well, to be fair they have plenty to be proud of.  Wilson is a smart, athletic QB.  He'll be a good one.  Lynch is a good RB (though nothing to base your franchise around).  Sherman is elite.  Wagner is also very good.  They have a good young core in Wilson, Wagner and Sherman as well as the rest of the secondary.

Oh yeah, no doubt.  I'd be ecstatic too if I was them... but I've just seen so many that are downright obnoxious about it.

 

They'll pop up in a discussion where none of their players are even mentioned and be like, "wut abut danerusss/wagner?", etc.  Seriously, go on NFL reddit, browse some of the threads, and you'll likely see what I'm talking about.

 

That being said, Wagner ain't fugin wid Keek. ;)

Ah, I don't go on reddit or any of those type things.  I barely have tolerance for the amount of idiocy that goes on here.  I don't think I could handle those places.

 

And anyone that tries to say Wagner is even in the same ballpark as Luke is either a Seahawk homer or completely ignorant.

Wagner is damned good and I understand why people might think he's comparable to Keek, or possibly better since he had great tackle numbers, 1 more sack, and 1 more INT than Luke.

 

... But, the one big fuging they always overlook (and I can't really blame them for this, they probably don't know any better) is that Luke was mostly a rotational player playing out of position for the first 4 weeks of the season.  He didn't even start at MLB until damn week 5.  Imagine how far head and shoulders he would be above his peers (Wagner, David, etc.) if he started at week 1?  He was literally dominant every single week after that and managed to put up those respectable numbers despite the handicap.  He definitely would have broken Willis' rookie tackle record, if not completely shattered it.

 

Not to mention our defense went from looking like swiss cheese to a top 10 unit once Luke got the start, meanwhile Bobby came into a good situation right off the bat.

I hope Beason can stay healthy and can transition to the outside. We have the potential to have a very good front 7 and probably the best LB Corps in the league.

After my raging homerism began to die down some I'm a bit more cautiously optimistic about our front 7.  I'm still excited as all hell, no doubt, but Beason is taking TD's spot where TD just had a hell of a season.  We have to use Beason if he's healthy for obvious reasons, but is it going to be at the expense of increased production if we had just kept Anderson at SLB or picked up a direct replacement?  Beason is probably a liability at SLB, so it makes more sense to slide TD over there, but what if neither really get into the groove of the switch?

 

Maybe I'm overthinking it and not making sense, sorry if that's the case.  But anyways, here's to Beason coming back and proving he's still one of the best LBs in the game.

Are we sure Beason is going to the Will spot?

 

All the reports have me a little confused.

I don't kno, but the pics I seen had beason lined up to the left of keek. Isnt that where Anderson played? Of course that doesn't mean he will start their, but it doesn't make sense to move someone who had a monsterous season at their position.

I might be overly optimistic, but I think we have a pretty versatile group. I think they will adjust. However, if Beason doesn't stay healthy, they will have to switch it up again.......

It would make the most sense. I don't think he'll play as well there as TD, but I think he'd be a bigger liability at SLB. TD should be much better at covering TEs.

If Beason can get to his old form(pre-achilles) then he will be very effective at SLB. Our entire front seven can be pro-bowlers at their respective positions
