Your Seahawk Breakout Players

Postby Largent80 » Thu Aug 03, 2017 10:32 am

I'm going with Graham. This guy not only shed the injury that laid waste to many careers, but he had incredible numbers. He is a BEAST.

I really want him re-signed (yeah, we should re-up Britt, but Britt needs to have a solid year again).

Jimmy is a big part of this offense, especially THIS year.

I'm hoping they use him more effectively in the Red Zone.
That's play calling, though so it might not improve.

Maybe that play calling might include the sucesss of our running game?

I'm thinkin that Bevell is on his last year. Even though most of us have wanted to move on for several years.

Graham is a good choice, but I am inclined to go with Jeremy Lane as a candidate to make a big improvement. It is likely that the devastating injury he got at the end of 2015 continued to hamper him last season, and yet he was still able to be the regular nickel corner. He is getting regular praise from PC, and says he is bigger, stronger, and faster than ever.

And it doesn't hurt that he has some young draft picks pushing him. Compete.

Tempting to just say Russell, and let it go at that. Too simple.

I cant say Im rooting for Bevfool to be "on his last year". That would mean the offense was dreadful in 2017 because I swear Bevel and Carroll have a bromance.

As you say many have called for it. Should have happened Feb 3rd 2015 but right now I hope he's signing an extension in a year or the hottest HC candidate alive after the Hawks crush the Pats in the super bowl.

My breakout player is Paul Richardson. He was a freak show down the stretch after Locketts injury capped off in the playoff vs Detroit with a freak show reach around the defenders body one hander while nearly tearing the guys head off with the other hand on a 4th and goal call.

His injury vs. Carolina in the divisional round in 2014 probably was a huge factor in the 49 loss, we will never know but he was surely more explosive and sure handed than Ricardo Lockette and Russ was targeting him more all the time.

Graham hasn't hit his NO numbers and never will in this offense but dude broke all single season team TE records last year. An anticipated improvement on that might propel this offense into the stratosphere.

Barring further injury Russ will be superhuman. As a mere mortal playing hurt all year he still rushed for the better part of 300 yds , threw for a good portion of 4000 yards and had a 2 to 1 TD to interception rate. Its how spoiled we are at the position when you have to bounce back from that.....

Rawls is going to beat out Eddie Lacy for the starting RB position....Maybe not week 1 but this is competition at its finest. When healthy Rawls is as explosive and powerful and with great football speed as any back around. People forget 2015 when he put up 2 games with more yards than any game in Lynches career so far and led the league with a rushing average of nearly 6 ypc.

Im too lazy to check stats this AM so if I spit something there I stand corrected.

GO HAWKS IM SO JACKED!!!!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

In the 'Bounceback' thread I said Cassius Marsh. It would be good if he does break out while McDowell recovers (if he ever does).

Good post Tawk. If Bevell has a great year, that can only mean that the offense was soaring, and that can only be good. It would mean that Russell is healthy, that the OL is working, and that we have a running game. Bang.

I have an unnerving calmness about the defense. Is that a bad thing? Our safeties seem ready, the linebacker core has two all stars, Richard is there, and the defensive line is overloaded. Right corner? At worst you have the experience of Lane, and behind him a panting line of hounds waiting to beat him out.

If the offense is effective, then the future is bright. I would be nice to have an insecticide to deal with the injury bug. And maybe a stupid drug to deal with Clark and McDowell.

Awesome news. This changes everything. Hard to call it a breakout if Rocket Lockett is dazzling but more of a comeback from a gruesome injury. He only caught 41 balls all season but 16 were in his last 3 games of the year and he didn't even finish the AZ game obviously!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D

With the way Darboh looks and the emergence of P rich this looks like as good a receiving corps as Wilson has had in his career.
As an aside if Im Kearse Im not talking out a second mortgage.....
