Test Of 12s With Boykin Debacle
We had the perfect backup QB for Russell Wilson in Trevone Boykin.
He was young and ready to learn, but he fit our offensive system, which is built on improvisation, so he was able to step in with limited NFL experience under his belt.
He was quick and made great decisions when he couldn't make the progression to each route when he played.
But he probably won't ever play a down for our beloved Seahawks again.
That would seem to be the price owed to the organization's fanbase, no matter what happens from here on out in the NFL for Boykin. Seahawks fans are all business in my opinion, legal distractions are not welcome.
One of the reasons a lot of folks love to hate on other teams in the NFL is a tendency to turn a blind eye to obvious signs of a bad investment. How many comebacks does a guy like Johnny Football deserve, really?
Enter Colin Kaepernick.
This is a legitimate choice for a Seahawk backup. He's big, athletic, and he can run and improv when coached properly. He's cheap. He's hungry. This is Seattle after all, Home Of The Ongoing Protest.
He fits right in with that crowd.
So the question really becomes, can you stomach seeing him on the field and cheering for him?
As long as it's not Jay Cutler. I'm fine with most choices Pete Carroll and John Schneider make anyway, so all I really have to say is GO HAWKS!
That 26th pick in the draft is still sitting there getting awfully more important by the minute.
