Eli sucks and Vick is the man on the streets, wait what?

Actually I read about this earlier, not good for the 'Hawks.

Seems to be typical NFL RB. Few great seasons, gets injured, fades away slowly.

The Seahawks should have followed the example left by the Colts. You let almost thirty year old Running Backs hit the road, regardless of how good they are, rather than paying them a large sum of money.

Totally agree, he should have left at FA. Didn't they give him an 8 year deal?

I wonder if the hawks would have been able to retain Hutchinson despite the poison pill contract he signed if they didn't tie up so much money in Alexander.

Who's the backup to Shaun? I seem to remember them not suffering that much when Shaun was last out. Either way I agree with all the above, they should have let him walk...

He screwed me in Fantasy Football this past year so I don't really care what happens with him b/c he will never see one of my rosters again. BOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Don't you know the rule? Don't ever take a player, especially a RB, coming off an MVP/Career year.

There is always this year....considering last year was an MVP AND a career year.

It was Maurice Morris I think !!

You sir are correct.

Maurice Morris is not a starting RB in the NFL. He's a good backup but I don't ever see him being a starter. He did only average 3.8 yards per carry behind a pretty good O-Line last year. Then again Alexander didn't have much of a year himself only averaging 3.6 yards/carry.

It's a shame to see Alexander hurt again because i'm a fan of his. He has never really been an injury prone guy and I guess the older he gets the more his body starts to feel the wear and tear of the NFL.

The NFC West should be interesting as all 4 teams have a foresably decent chance of winning the division.

If you guys had actually read the article closely, you would see that he doesn't actually think the foot might still be broken.

All he was saying was that it was still broken 5 months ago and he hasn't had it X-rayed since then....so it could still be broken and he wouldn't know.

Of course the writer of the article makes it sound like he just had it X-rayed recently.

They could have signed Hutch regardless, but nobody in their right mind is going to give a guard $49 million in guaranteed money.

He better get it fixed, the Seahawks don't need him sitting out at the begining of the season.

I'll just bump this post until people realize that they haven't had an X-ray taken in 5 months.

i had a fracture just like that, its not impossible to play on it but it makes cutting extremely difficult & after a while i just rolled my ankle and it broke all the way through, one of the hardest injuries to heal completely

How does Alexander's foot still having a crack FIVE MONTHS AGO help the Niners win the division?

You do know Hamlin is now a Cowbiy, right? You may want to get a sig change...
