Who should hold Hass's clipboard?
This is the greatest theoretical trophy...behind this, of course.
I was already for an instant analysis of this game that was full of references to my impending alcoholism due to Charlie Frye starting any game in the regular season. I had all sorts of witty jokes ready to go for it as well. A picture of bourbon was likely, as that is my "everything needs to go away" drink of choice. I mix it with coke, its delicious.
And then all of a sudden, Frylock had to go out and throw for 219 yards, 2 touchdowns, no turnovers, and looked, well, pretty good. (that linked pic aside, um, wow! After last week, whodathunk?
Then Frye got injured. And Seneca Wallace came in to try and read a valiant Seahawks come back. I know he's injured, I know he was cold, but Wallace wasn't exactly sharp and threw a game killing INT.
After the game, in the always entertaining Seahawk Blue Chat, some of us called for Frye to be the second string QB and others came to Wallace's defense. Since a cage match to the death is likely to leave us with more injury problems, the standard method of settling these things is out. So, here's some pros and cons for each.
The Incumbent...Seneca Wallace
~Should have great grasp of offense/Seahawks issued clipboard
~Did decent a few years ago filling in for Hass
~Can make things happen with his legs, much like this woman (NSFW?)
~Should be a receiver
~We've been trying to make him a receiver since we drafted him
~Maybe hasn't progressed as much as we would like
~So, maybe he should be a receiver
~His greatest moment as a Seahawk came when he was a....RECEIVER (NFC title game, with the over the shoulder catch to set the tone)
The Challenger...Charlier Frye
~Has actually stared in the NFL
~Seems to have picked up the offense well
~Unlike some people, should not be a receiver (have I made this clear?)
~Was starter...for the Browns
~Still may inspire alcoholism if started actual game
~Might inspire Seahawk fans to take up moronic Rally Fries thing from the Mariners
Either way, as long as Hass doesn't get hurt, I'm cool with it. I think given adequate prep either one could get the job done, but Frye's performance in SD warrants makes this debate relevant. What do you think, Hawk fans? Who do you want holding the clipboard on Sundays?
