Should have just skipped that last word subby. The rest was sufficient.

Seattle is the only other team that Brown might be able to get away with his pushing off antics. The Refs seem to favor the Seahawks most games.

/and I say that as a fan
//I really don't want to root for Brown, though
 
2020-10-21 8:14:51 PM  
Eh.  Their defense is crap.

//Just snagged him off waivers, cause why the fark not?
 
2020-10-21 8:18:30 PM  
Wait a minute. How the heck are they counting weeks played by the NFL  towards Brown's 8 game suspension?!
That's crazy.

This seems like a great time to bring in locker room poison what with heightened anxieties and stressors from the pandemic. As a Niners fan, I say please proceed.

did the same.  speculation :)

If, and this is a big if, he actually plays, you can count on him for one or two games.  And yes, he will cause Seahawks fans to jizz their jeans with spectacular plays in those two games.  But this will be an illusion, because AB can't keep it together long enough not to get his ass booted from any team he infects.  Maybe it will be drugs, maybe a little date rape, maybe just not bothering to come to practice, or possibly all of the above.

It will happen.

So go ahead, Seahawks fans.  Enjoy the ride while it lasts because it won't last long.

I think that was the joke, 'crazy' good.

This will work out just as well as their Josh Gordon signing last season.

You're wrong. It says so in the first sentence in tfa, and I even googled to read another story to make sure it wasn't a mistake.

The guy will sign a one year deal wherever he lands and be lucky to finish the season healthy and in good standing with the league. If he can attract doubleteam coverage consistently to free up Lockette and Metcalf to play one on one with a corner then Russ will definitely get to cook so I'm all for it.

Last time they had a guy do that was Percey Harvin.

He played like two games. One of those games was the Superbowl (his 2nd half kickoff return TD essentially iced the game).

Yes a Superbowl.  That the Hawks won by the way.  Schneider knows what he's doing.

This. They can't keep relying on Rusty and crew to bail them out. They've been able to squeak by on simple tricks and nonsense so far, but at some point that won't be enough. Despite being 5-0 and first in the NFC West, they're last in points against and third in net points... in their own division.

The offense is fine; the focus needs to be on rebuilding the LOB. Outside the division their schedule is pretty easy, but it's early in the season and the Cards and Rams are still within a couple of games of shattering the Hawks' best start ever.

It's actually a really clever strategy: If you have an all-out baller on your team and don't play him for the season, nobody has any game footage of him. They don't know what plays you're going to run with him and and they have not prepared for him at all. And football is all about preparation.

Ishkur: all about preparation.


And execution.

It's not every day you can sign a top 5 talent at his position as a free agent mis-season.
But it's extremely rare to sign a guy who has had the following written about him:

Antonio Brown Farted in my Face and Owes Me $11,000
 
2020-10-22 7:12:12 AM  
They are already good, and Brown is crazy, so yeah.
Crazy. Good.
 
2020-10-22 8:30:04 AM  
If Brown shows up to play football and be more than a Terrell Owens that can actually catch most of his targets, he'll help a good offense, even if he has to shake off some rust.

If he's still all about himself, he'll implode and be back on the street in a month.

How is Brown back from suspension yet Josh Gordon still suspended?

Seattle needs a pass rusher not another receiver. Especially one as mentally unfit fit as Brown and who hasn't done anything for several years.

The media is just looking for clicks.

How do you feel about your team's execution?
 
2020-10-22 11:06:04 AM  
Please don't. DK Metcalf is a beast and I picked him up last year in both my fantasy leagues, before he burst out. Brown means fewer throw to Metcalf. That would suck.
 
2020-10-22 1:01:19 PM  
No.

Fire this person who even suggested this.
 
2020-10-22 1:21:44 PM  
Meanwhile, the Ravens are looking to add Dez Bryant to the practice squad to get him in game shape over a week or two. Hope he's got his head on straight.

Agreed.

I would love to be wrong bit after being out of the league for as long as he has I just don't see Dez making any kind of impact ob a return, especially when the injuries that took him out we're relatively minor and lingered for as long as they did.

Well, that made my day.  I'm going to log off of fark before someone else ruins it.  You get a gold star today.

And as a Seahawks fan, I hope we pass on AB.
