Honestly it's swapping 20 spots in round 2 and giving up a 3 next season to get a QB with some sort of NFL experience (even if it's not game experience) now, and still has some potential. It also gives them a year to evaluate the kid and see if he can give them what they need, especially since Hasselbeck is on his last leg. If he works as a starter, they got themselves a steal, if he doesn't, then they're likely picking in the Top 10 of the 2011 draft, which apparently some people around here feel could be the best QB draft since 83 (and maybe that's the way the Seahawks feel as well), oh, and they overpaid for their backup QB. All in all it's not a major risk to take, I don't see why everyone is going "zOMGz, Carroll's an idiot, Chargers are amazing!" when the Seahawks didn't give up all that much, even if it is for a completely unproven QB.
No announcement yet.
