This is a tough day here at MCM. Site favorite Barrett Ruud has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks. Ruud's arch with the Titans is pretty funny to think back on. We were all pretty excited when the team signed him because he was decent against the run and good in pass coverage. I cannot speak for everyone, but I think it is safe to say that most people thought he was going to be an upgrade over Stephen Tulloch. I know I did.

Just a few short weeks later, the entire fanbase was ready to run him out of town with pitchforks. He couldn't tackle or cover anyone. It also didn't help his cause that Colin McCarthy proved to be a really, really good player when he got to fill in for Ruud.

The Seahawks are apparently just impressed with people from the Titans organization as the other way around. Earlier this season they added former Titans DL Jason Jones.

On a scale of 1-10, how sad are you about this news?
