Missing the point.
Harvin will be good, but they will come to regret that contract and the price in draft picks that they gave up.
The draft picks that they truly "paid" for Harvin are a 2014 3rd round pick and a 2013 7th round pick (#214 overall). Had the Hawks not made the trade, they would have ended up with five (5) 7th round picks. How many of those 5 do you think will make the team this year? I'm guessing one.
So, the true cost of the Harvin trade in picks is a 2014 3rd rounder... and I get the cap hit point and the effect on who the Hawks can re-sign and who they may have to let go... I am just trying to set the record straight on the draft capital that the Hawks spent to get Harvin.
AGAIN....$$$$$ and picks together....not either one .individually. Harvin got top of the market Free Agent $$$ AND cost the team 3 picks.
Hey Marv I got a question for you man. On the Seacocks forum you predicted a 49ers Seadderal NFC championship. I got to know where you just humoring them to avoid stirring up s**t on a Seahawks board or do you really think that is how it will shake out? I must be the only one who thinks the Seahawks are getting a little too much pre mature respect. Even last season people were saying our run to the NFC champ loss was a fluke how can Seattle be judged any differently?
I actually believe it.
I don't think the 'Hawks are as good as advertised but I also don't think the 49ers are as good as advertised. I think the media just makes good teams out to be better than they are and bad teams worse than they really are.
I think the Hawks will be there mainly because they are balanced...IE they have a good offense and a good defense. Nobody else outside of SF can say that. Atlanta will choke. GB still has a horrible D. You just never know which Giants team will show up. The Saints will be better but that D is still horrible.
Someone we don't expect might jump up, but my guess is SF-Seattle III in late January.
I agree the 49ers are not as good as they are made out to be. I have a sick feeling that a team like the Vikings or the Rams might make an unexpected run for some reason.
If Seattle gets home field in the playoffs they are close to unbeatable but it seems like they are getting way too much credit with very little to go off. I know they handed us our ass in their house but we were noticeably drained by the time we went up to Seattle.
If that does pan out and we see Seattle in the conference championship I hope and prey that we have home field advantage. The way the Seahawks play us I want no part of them on the road. I like our odds in the stick but we are pretty much done if they get the higher seed. I guess the regular season will make all the difference next season. Like you said we can beat every contender in the NFC come post season. Injuries and seeding seem to be the deciding factors.
