But ragging about it on a message board helps?  Save yourself an ulcer because there's still nothing we can do about it.

So I, and everyone who thinks anything the team does is wrong, should never say it? Did you complaining for years about Hurney help get him fired?  Didn’t stop you from complaining about the incompetence.

I don’t know why you participate in a football forum if you’ve already determined these guys were the wrong moves. Michael Oher was considered the “wrong move” too but was solid for us. Trading away a pro bowl Trai Turner was considered by many here the “wrong move” and he’s just been cut from the Chargers roster. 
 

These guys are being paid backup money. Pricey backups but backups nonetheless. They are both still young and both have a lot of starts under their belts. Not much more you can ask for as a backup.

 

Determining they were the “wrong move” a couple hours after signing them is absurdly premature and unaware of how the league often works 

Sign guys that have shown potential that’s all i ask . We always sign guys that were ass on other teams and just hope for the best .

My theory is that Rhule's influence is heavy on these moves.  Maybe they sign them bc they feel they have more physical talent than the guys we currently have, and if he can get them in here and coach them up, then it will bring out the best in them.  That's the only optimistic take I have, because my usual cynical self is wondering why tf we just signed two scrubs on the first day of FA and spent more on them than had we just re-signed the scrubs we already had.

Better scrubs?  I got nothing.

Pre injury, both showed potential. They are still really young and have experience starting. They can play all along the line. I just don’t understand the outrage

Last year salaries for the following OL FAs: Miller $1.8M, Reed $1.4M and Schofield $1M.  So yeah, the two new signees seem overpaid.

I mean that's three terrible players right there.

I didn't say you couldn't say anything. I'm just advising you not to let it get to you for your health.  I lived through the Hurney years simply because I stopped letting it get to me.  There's not a damn thing any of us can do about who they sign , cut, trade for or draft.

No your crying about people bringing up legitimate concerns. And your defense is Tepper is Rich which couldn’t mean less in this, or any discussion involving paying players. You’re upset your team is ignorant and people are pointing it out.

He had a helluva year when someone finally figured out how to use him. If he gets on a team like the Ravens, he's going to be a madman out there.  His abilities and a hyper-mobile QB... scary.

 

They don't pass the ball

Why would I care. Y’all can win or lose and it won’t matter to me. I’m here for the train wreck. It’s fun to watch total incompetence so readily accepted by a fan base.

I don't think these guys are backups.

It looks like they're making more money than our starters did last year.

Stick with the facts and reality and let it ride. Isn't our money and obviously not our choice. But the facts and reality are that Seattle has had a dogshit offensive line for some time now and even their quarterback wants out. It's still super early so the staff will largely receive the benefit of the doubt but you can't bury your head in the sand either just stay grounded and see how it goes this isn't that difficult we're just fans.

There’s no outrage from me it’s just we always sign the same type of mediocre talent . Fans have a right to be upset at the team when they continually do the same poo year in and year out without consistent success . But if you are okay with mediocrity then that’s fine too but don’t be upset when others want more than the status quo .
