Default Dropoff in Shaun Alexander's production with Hutchinson gone

I think Steve Hutchinson, the Pro Bowl OG that signed with Minnesota, will have an impact on Shaun Alexander next season...and not a good one.

I don't think that Alexander will match is production from next season, but the question is if it does drop, how much?

Also, consider two other things:

1) He is on the Madden cover.

2) The Super Bowl loser of recent hasn't had a success the following season.

Hutchinson helped but Alexander is a great back and will prove that this year.

He is going to slow down ALOT. He lust Hutch, best G in football who was paired with Jones a Top 5 T in football, thats how he got his big runs when he had one the holes were so big because he is slower than heck.

If we are looking at pure fantasty production, the dropoff on Alexander will also depend on the passing game. Alexander is one of the, if not the best running back inside the 5 yard line. He just has a nose for endzone. If the passing game is strong and he has opportunities inside the 5, he is going to get in. However I do see him rushing for 200-300 less yard this year. But 1500-1600 yards and 20-24 TDs in not too shabby.

Shaun will still be extremely productive. The only thing is that he is a year older, which doesn't concern me that much. I'd say 1500+ for sure, but i'll say he get 1704 yards and 24 tds

I think he'll drop off a little, but not that much.

Shaun will have his worst year of his career, because he has the Madden Curse may I present some evidence:

2004 Michael Vick (broken leg missed 13 games I believe)
2005 Ray Lewis (got banged up and had one of his worst seasons as a pro)
2006 Donovan McNabb (Falling out with TO, Injuries, terrible season)

thats just in the last 3 years, the years before that were also cursed.

I think it's only natural to expect a dropoff after losing his probowl G.

If you look at stats, they mostly ran the other way anyways. I think he gets injured myself, but if not, he'll still put up strong numbers.

You got that backwards, Jones is the best LT in football, Hutch is a top 5 G, possibly the best.

It's funny, I used to get into arguements all the time about Hutch being the best gaurd. But now that he's no longer a Seahawk, EVERYONE thinks he's the best gaurd in the NFL.

Funny how that works isn't it?

the 2nd option. he won't have as good a season as last year due to the loss of hutchinson and his age, but he will still be a top running back

Do you think the seahawks meant to lose Hutchinson? Oh no :P . The curse has already started.
