And the opinion is …


After Deion Branch met the media in Seattle yesterday, the Seattle columnists delivered their impressions.

Call it a mixed bag.

Take Steve Kelley's column for example. The Seattle Times columnist calls Branch the anti-T.O., and a receiver who will only make the already good Seahawk offense better.

The P-I's Art Thiel sees a team willing to take a chance, to go against conventional wisdom in search of one more win at the end of the season.

On the other end of the spectrum was Tacoma's John McGrath, who thinks the Hawks overpaid for a receiver when they really needed O-line help.

UPDATE: The Times broke out some quotes from Boston-area newspapers about the Branch deal.
