    But how is he better than Taylor Mays??????

    I wonder if Mays is still butthurt about Earl getting picked over him? I had a college buddy who went to O'Dea who nailed the Mays evaluation. He was friends with Mays too, but said he was stiff and really overrated at USC.

    Great player. Probably the best safety in the league. He's one of my least favorite Seahawks. I'm not really feeling the new persona of non stop mugging for the cameras.

    I haven't noticed him doing that, maybe he did it once, and I saw 11 games this year, plus some preseason.

    He's a real gym rat like others have alluded too.

    There's a funny web commercial with an aftershave robot interviewing him (not going to give the product FREE PUB though). Most of you can figure it out. His greedy agent might be in his ear about mugging for the camera and building his "brand" ($75k). I just haven't noticed it much.

    Sounds like something grandma FMB would say.

    Congrats.

    To his credit, I believe Mr. Chris Fetters had Mays pegged as overrated.

    Except Mays wasn't overrated at all as a college football recruit. Mays had an incredible college career. And Fetters argument wasn't just that he was overrated, it was that he was *soft*. And of course he never said Mays was soft until after Mays committed to USC. And he was of course just spewing the company line being fed to him by the Bellevue "insider" Montlake, who ripped Mays in order to hype some shitty undersized white safety from Bellevue who went on to do nothing in college.

    Taylor Mays was a major loss for UW. He was 10x better than any safety UW had during the same time period. Not being a great pro doesn't mean he wasn't worth the hype going into college.

    I remember it really well because the Taylor Mays thing was one of the first things that really exposed Fetters as a worthless recruiting analyst to me. I wanted Mays to be good at SC just so Fetters could be wrong. And he was.
    Ironic that Fetters would call someone soft.

    Joking aside, your poast (hardy har har) is spot on.

    My moment when I realized Fetters was an idiot was in 2005 or 2006. Some poster asked who the best player he saw was. Was it Jonathon Stewart, EJ Savanah, Hasty, Locker, Taylor Mays?

    Fetters names some kid playing 1A football who played QB, RB, MLB, Safety, DE, and he punted, kicked, and returned kicks. So posters ask where he's going and Fetters says Central has sniffed around.

    It reminded me of that World Series ALDS play from 2001 where the throw from the outfield to the plate was off target and Derek Jeter swooped in to snare the ball and flip it to the catcher for the out.

    Wow. Must have been really memorable.

    Like people who talk about how much they remember Largent's hit on Smith Atwater Braxton Harden.

    And the Yankees do not get the out of Giambi slides.

  • As a non-Seahawks fan I'll say this, the guy is a fucking king beast

    I can vouch that Nacho hates the Seahawks.
    6 years later and still an accurate statement.
