What Seahawk fans are saying about the Tapp trade

Since I know nothing about Tapp (haven't watched Seahawk games), I had to inquire. So far, it sounds like it was another great trade by Reid and co.

 

I'm starting to hate the eagles first Weaver now Tapp..

This makes absolutely no sense to me

WHAT THE FUCK!? We’re trading a 25 year old defensive end who hasn’t missed a single game for a 28 year old who has 2.5 more sacks over 3 more years in the league, who also has a torn ACL?

Darryl Tapp was the best DE we had. He played fucking well against Michael Roos, who is one of the best left tackles in the league now. God fucking damn it.

I really don’t see how this is an improvement. If I were sitting at a desk I would headbang the desk _

Trying not to

but this deal heavily favors Philly, without a doubt. Further, it dramatically questions the foundational plans this regime has for this team.

Clemons is a situational rusher, and I know nothing about him beyond that. Conceivably, he could finally put it all together for a Kerney-like year or two, and the move could pay dividends, and Tapp could end up being only as good as he’s been so far, or get injured, or whatever. But that’s results-based analysis. I’m loathe to knee-jerk, but this move is indefensible.

Fuck.

This makes me incredibly irritated. Who is Chris Clemons? Some random douche who just took one of our best young player’s position, that’s who. Fuck.

It's Great to be a Florida Gator!

The Arizona Cardinals' plan for success:
-Lose all talent on team to retirement and free agency.
-Call it a day.

Ugh

Maybe this is just part of the Cliff Lee deal.

Tapp was more disruptive than Peterson and Kerney combined.

He’s just not a sack artist. But on the right defense, that may change.

And as John pointed out in one of his writeups, Tapp is right at the age where DE’s make “the leap.”
