Shaun Alexander is evidently "training like crazy" to (hopefully) play this season... I implore you to just kick back, count your money and get ready to take your place in the Seahawks Ring of Honor. You racked up a whopping 24 yards on 11 carries for DC last season, and unlike wine or Susan Sarandon, running backs don't get better as they age.
SA... Man, Edgerrin James can't find work, and he actually looked like he had something left in the tank last season. There is no NFL market for your services, my man. The good news is that you are unbelieveably wealthy, good looking, telegenic (though easily confused with Tiki Barber in some corners), and your legacy is secure.
Some may player-hate on you, and bitch and moan about your running style, but...
-You scored 112 career touchdowns (#1 in Seahawks history; #14 in NFL history)
-You racked up 9,429 career rushing yards in Seattle (#1 in Seahawks history)
-You're the only Seahawk to ever be named NFL MVP.
-You're one of the top five players in Seahawks history (I rank you up there with Jones, Largent, Hasselbeck and Easley). Even if someone wanted to argue about that, you're the greatest running back in Seattle history, and that's a group that includes Curt Warner, Ricky Watters and Chris Warren.
-Without you, we would still be part of the pathetic franternity of teams who have never been to a Super Bowl. It's nice to hold something over the Saints, Lions, Browns, Texans, and Jaguars...
You have NOTHING to prove. Yeah, you aren't going to get in the Hall of Fame... but another shitty stretch with another team isn't going to get you any closer to Canton either. Come over to Qwest this fall, raise the 12th Man Flag, and luxuriate in adoration from us....
Does that sound so bad?
