    signing him would still be an upgrade over roman, but i still dont want him really.

    I hope Pickett signs. He'd replace Grady Jackson who isn't going to resign. Pickett was one of the few bright spots on the Rams D last year.

    This is a little long, but I thought I'd post it here from another forum......

    Having watched him play here in Seattle I can tell you this, the guy doesnt have great range, but he isnt stupid. Played SOLIDLY down the stretch for the Seahawks. They lost their starter Ken Hamlin and Manuel stepped without missing a beat. Can hit like a truck.


    Here is a forum page about whether the Sehawks should sign Manuel or local product Lawyer Milloy:


    Manuel or Milloy?
    #1054201Posted by numbereighty at 3/6/06 12:50 p.m.

    While I love Manuel's hungry work ethic, I think it's a toss up. Milloy would be a great addition to the D. If Manuel recieves a big offer from another team and Milloy would come for less I say Milloy hands down. What do you guys think?

    Sign Manuel, he is 26 as opposed to Milloy at 32 yrs old.

    Manuel will work out fine.

    Manuel. I haven't seen something Lawyer can do that Manuel can't, & the age difference is huge.

    #1054246Posted by numbereighty at 3/6/06 1:11 p.m. in reply to: #1054236

    So you would over pay for him?

    #1054247Posted by jp17 at 3/6/06 1:11 p.m.

    Manuel unless Milloy wants to sign for league minimum and finish his career with a championship for his hometown team.

    Reply
    #1054250Posted by AZHawkDieHard at 3/6/06 1:13 p.m. in reply to: #1054247

    Agreed. I was very impressed with Manuel last season, defense almost looked improved when he took over for Kenny.

    #1054257Posted by E-hawk at 3/6/06 1:19 p.m. in reply to: #1054246

    Manuel without a doubt, Milloy has been let go before due to not beeing a "team player" and hasn't done much since his parter in "Law" days. Remember no Lawyer is above the Law.

    Not even close: Manuel. The guy was rock-solid from the moment he stepped in for Hamlin. If he had not got hurt we would have won the SB (if if if if ....)

    depends on length and price

    #1054281Posted by numbereighty at 3/6/06 1:38 p.m. in reply to: #1054279

    Let's say that Manuel wants 4 mill per year and Milloy would take the league minimum. You wouldn't even consider that?

    Reply
    #1054308Posted by sexymarinersfan at 3/6/06 2:01 p.m. in reply to: #1054281

    That's like saying if God can do anything, can he make a stone so heavy he couldn't lift it?

    That's just stupid. Manuel doesn't deserve $4 million a year, and I'll bet my life savings that he won't get near that.

    Milloy would just as soon get close to that before Marquand did. Just because he had one really good season, doesn't mean anything yet. But I would take Manuel hands down. I like his style and he's proven that he can play at a high level in this game

    Marquan Manuel will be re-signed as a Seattle Seahawk.

    I would take Manuel too. But you never know if and when the cap goes up teams may over pay. Like the Niners or the Cardinals.
