Do the Seahawks succeed even when they fail?
Jerry Brewer posited that theory in his column for today’s paper, writing:
The Seahawks just tempered one of their greatest recent failures with one of their greatest recent successes. In their resourceful world, they can elevate even their low moments.
Goodbye, John Moffitt, who now stands as the biggest draft bust of the Pete Carroll/John Schneider era. But before you become fixated on the mistake, remember J.R. Sweezy, whose extreme makeover converting from defense to offense is yielding extremely good results?
It isn’t laudable when an NFL team gives up on a high draft pick after only two seasons, but the way the Seahawks do business, it isn’t crippling, either. Schneider, the general manager, always has another option.
