Gordon is a Seahawk now so there's that.

Meanwhile it's time for Tre', Cook and Kirkwood (assuming he's close to returning) to earn their keep.

Just like Demario Davis says in those pre game chants ... "you want to take care of your brother, you gotta eat. You eat by making plays".

Hope those guys are hungry.

Maybe they looked at his history and how he cant lay off the dope....

Honestly, I see people going mad about this guy when his last full season was in 2013. The guy has a problem, he will be out of the league again soon.

Not stupid at all. And it wasn't dope related. I heard on NFL Radio that Gordon had showed up late for several meetings and refused to comply with all of Belichick's demands. Belichick and Payton have a pretty close friendship and I would be shocked if Payton hadn't had a chat with Bill about Gordon and decided to avoid him like the plague.

7 years he scored 6 times and never got close to 800 yds. I doubt the Seahawks use him for anything more than insurance. They already have 2 solid WR's. He was not going to help us.

No need to bring him in and add more stress to the locker room. Apparently we don't need the distraction.

I agree, but I didn't see the harm in what would be a half season deal. I'm guessing we weighed in with a former coach or teammate, got bad intel, and just moved on.

I'll guarantee you that former coach was Belichick himself. He and Payton are buddies.
