    Why are they bringing guys like this in?
    Alexander is just having another off year.
    He was the league MVP a few years back.
    If they let him go I am gonna call for the HC's head.

    Fans just crack me up sometimes.

    ;D
    Your cracking up to your own imagination, your cracking me up too.
    I am sure some people in Seattle want Alexander to be a Seahawk for life. I would if he had played for the vikings. I don't think the problem is alexander but the loss of Hutch. Alexander could still be a very effective back for someone, although he doesn't seem to run as hard as he once did, the fire seems to be gone.
    I agree Hutch probably hurt thier running game but I don't think that is the only reason Alexander isn't producing.

    Judging by the two resent signings, the Seachickes don't think so either.

    How the mighty have fallen.
    One time MVP relegated to the chopping block.

    ;D
    I think that maybe Hutch had more to do with Alexanders success than Alexander did. I am not totally convinced that Alexander was ever truly a top 5 back he just played in a system that was perfect for him, kinda like chestor taylor.
    I will agree with that statement.
    Not the last part?

    Alexander meets with Seahawks, but no word

    http://www.thenewstribune.com/sports/story/306772.html

    Shaun Alexander met with Seattle Seahawks officials for the first time since they acquired fellow running backs T.J. Duckett and Julius Jones, moves that further clouded Alexander’s future with the organization.

    Although coach Mike Holmgren and general manager Tim Ruskell said Tuesday that Alexander had not been released, neither endorsed the 2005 NFL MVP’s future with the Seahawks.

    i agree with your statement about alexander too, but why include chester in there? chester as a viking has done what he did in baltimore in terms of Per Carry production..his numbers were nice overall because of the higher volume of carries

    hes still the same back he was in baltimore, where he had YPC's of 4.4, 4.5, 4.2..when he came to the vikings and became the starter, it was 4.0..this season, while being able to keep defenses off balance because of AD it was 5.4

    i was just trying to say when he first came in his rookie year, i thought he was gonna be a big time stud, and he hasnt shown anything after that...
