Should Seahawks (Finally) Replace Hutchinson With… Steve Hutchinson?

I don’t know about you but I for one am sick of the never ending revolving door at left guard for the Seahawks.

Robert Gallery is a quality player but he has yet to prove he can sustain quality play for even a stretch of games for the Seahawks; after that it’s just crap.

Why not just finally fill the void at LG with the man who infamously left town fresh off a Super Bowl appearance?

Word on the street is that the Vikings may release the man once widely considered the best interior offensive lineman in the league for a good stretch of years.

Though definitely not the guy some argued was even better then Walter Jones, you would still be incredibly hard pressed to find 10 better guards to slot into your lineup for the 2012 season.

Keep in mind that this is a completely different regime and squad then the one he bolted in 2006; ill-feelings may no longer be harbored on either side if any even exist at all considering Pete Carroll was at USC and John Schneider in Green Bay.

Maybe ill-feelings are still festering within the fan-base, I can only speak for myself. At this point I feel like the result of his departure was moot for both squads. The Seahawks have made three playoff appearances since he left compared to his pair of trips with the Vikings; one was an NFC Championship Game appearance though. He didn’t win or advance to a Super Bowl and he did nothing to change the fact his best seasons were clearly played in Seattle.

I am pretty sure though that if the team did sign Hutchinson that even those that might still raise their voice in anger when his name comes up in a conversation would be pretty damn thrilled to see him plugged in at guard next season alongside Russell Okung.

    Can’t think of any better news than if Steve was on his way back to the Seahawks. He is a first class individual and player. He wanted to be a Seahawks for his entire career and would have been if TR hadn’t f*#%ed it up to begin with. Come home Steve! Seahawks fans should welcome him back with open outstretched arms.
