Pittsburgh’s Patrick Jones is one to watch

September 26th, 2020 | Written by Rob Staton

Patrick Jones is flashing first round talent

The Seahawks don’t have a first or third round pick in 2021 so if they keep their second rounder, there’s a decent chance it’ll be spent on the defensive line.

With such limited stock, it’s going to be hard to make projections for what could easily be a non-top-50 prospect. Testing is going to have a bigger impact than ever next year with many players opting out of the college football season (although it seems the idea of ‘writing-off’ the 2021 draft was a bit premature, given all the major conferences are now playing).

Pittsburgh’s Patrick Jones is definitely one to monitor.

Today, he was fantastic against Louisville — recording three sacks and three TFL’s.

On the first sack he forced the left tackle into a wide stance because he was terrified of his speed off the edge. It’s an awkward position for a blocker and Jones capitalised — engaging with a fantastic punch and driving him back into the quarterback.

It’s a classic speed-to-power move that will have NFL scouts drooling.

His second sack came on a spin move that completely stunned the right tackle. He exploded into the backfield but couldn’t bring down the QB who tried to extend the play. Jones kept his motor running and mopped things up shortly after.

Jones’ third sack was a speed rush to the edge where he actually lost balance as he flew by the tackle. He recovered to complete the play.

He was constantly in the backfield using his quickness to impact running plays and disrupt the quarterback.

It was especially pleasing to see him using his hands and winning with power because his 2019 tape showed plenty of ability to win with speed. Now he looks like the complete package.

The Seahawks like their pass rushers to be lean with great bend and flexibility. Darrell Taylor doesn’t have the best get-off but he has tremendous balance and works some ridiculous angles to beat the tackle and straighten to the quarterback.

Jones shows off similar skills. He’ll drop his shoulder and dip to avoid contact, pivot from the block then work to the passer.

If you don’t control him after off the release he can beat you with quickness. He can swim inside to offer variety. We saw today the power he possesses and he’s mixing in a spin-move. His get-off is certainly good enough (it’s better than Taylor’s). He’ll put a tackle on skates and he gets wide to avoid the initial contact and then he’s athletic enough to straighten and finish.

He’s a classical pass rusher in the Seahawks/Carroll mould. This is the type of player they look for. He’s a pin-your-ears-back and get after it type with the frame, size and hands to play early downs. He’s what the Seahawks currently are missing.

When you watch him operate in space he’s very fluid. There’s very little wasted movement. There’s a suddenness to him. He provides that quick, early pressure that disrupts a quarterback. You need someone who can create easy 1v1 wins (or at least make it look easy). He could appeal to 3-4 teams because of his mobility.

Jones could’ve declared for the 2020 draft but opted to return this year.

How he tests will be vital. The Seahawks will still want to see a good 10-yard split and a decent overall profile. He’s ideally sized (6-5, 260lbs) but arm length is also key. He was only a three-star recruit so there’s no guarantee he’ll test brilliantly.

In terms of personality he’s all business. Jones is a man of few words but he booms them out with a deep, serious voice.

He has a terrific backstory as John McGonical notes:

“…Jones, whenever he’s asked where he hails from, acknowledges that he’s “not really” from Virginia. The son of a naval IT chief, Jones spent most of his life overseas. And it was in Japan, 6,500 miles from Pitt’s campus, where the pass-rusher found the game he loves.

Jones was born in Yokosuka on Sept. 29, 1998. He doesn’t remember much, living there until he was 3 years old, when his father and family were relocated to a base in Jacksonville. After a couple years in Florida, the Joneses moved to Naples, Italy, for three years, then back to Japan. In 2007, they took temporary roots in Misawa, an eight-hour car ride north of Tokyo, on the northern tip of the island. A few years later, the family went back to Yokosuka, where they stayed until December 2012.

Jones’ official Pitt bio says Chesapeake is his hometown, where he and his family relocated and remained in 2013. But everyone who really knows him understands that the around-the-world childhood he experienced shaped him into something more than a normal stateside kid.”

He’s also a multi-sports star and excelled at baseball — something the Seahawks appreciate.

Tony Pauline is reporting that he’s been given a firm second-round grade by teams. Based on what I’ve seen so far that’s a conservative projection. He has first round potential and if he lasts into round two — he’s definitely someone the Seahawks could have on their radar.

This is a really talented Pittsburgh defense. I wrote about two of their other players back in July including safety Paris Ford who I also like a lot.

    I am gonna bet Seahawks trade down from the 2nd to recoup more picks but I totally agree Seahawks need a Dline pick

  2. cha says:

    Nice writeup Rob.

    I’m having Darrell Taylor PTSD so I have to ask. Any injury history you are aware of?

    Also, you referenced in the piece he rushed the left tackle and the right tackle. Any idea on if he can projected to EDGE on either side in the NFL? A guy the Hawks can move around could really be a valuable asset.

  3. Sea Mode says:

    The wait until the end of R2 is already going to be really, really, really long.

    And if we trade that pick at the deadline…

    (I mean, I’d do it, but it sure makes it hard to read about any exciting prospects in this year’s draft)

  4. Rob Staton says:

    Mississippi State vs LSU is an absolute mess.

    Could be a long season for the Tigers.

  5. dcd2 says:

    Nice Rob. I’ve been in love with this guy since last year. He looks like a perfect LEO. I know I’ve brought him up in the comments quite a few times, and have been eagerly awaiting your thoughts on him. Loved the write up and haven’t seen him this year, so I can’t wait to check out the bulked up version.

    Some absolute ballers on that PITT defense.

    If people haven’t seen it, here is his ’19 highlight reel.


  6. GoHawksDani says:

    Different topic but I’m so pissed the Hawks drafted Collier, Blair and Metcalf and only a little later (could’ve easily trade up) instead of McLaurin. Baldwin knew the guy, SDB also loved him. He tears up with even Haskins. I know we have less info than GMs but sometimes it’s just seems crazy not to pick someone…

  7. Rob Staton says:

    KJ Costello hasn’t changed. Still the same player.

    Turnover machine. Blowing this game for Miss. State.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Twitter already massively overreacting and getting silly because Costello’s team won.

      Bet you anything he starts popping up in R1 mocks which will be ridiculous.

      He had four turnovers including two in two possessions that almost cost them the game. It could’ve been three turnovers in three possessions but he was bailed out on a fumble on replay.

      He just put up about 600 yards in a Mike Leach mass production offense against a LSU team that is a shell.


  8. Volume12 says:

    Have u seen Duke’s Victor Dimukeje yet? Rob?

    • dcd2 says:

      I watched him a bit. He doesn’t look very long. More of a SAM, don’t you think, than a LEO?

      • Volume12 says:

        I think he can play either. Seattle can’t be picky about pass rushers. Profiles are out the window, within reason. They need guys who can get off the ball & string together moves. Dimukeje has get-off that he can convert, plays hard, fantastic leverage guy,

        • dcd2 says:

          I don’t know. If we weren’t being picky, we would have signed Matthews or Griffen or any number of guys. We feel like improving the pass rush absolutely needs to be the key, but the actions of the FO seem to indicate that they don’t feel that way. At least not to the extent that we do.

          I’m forced to conclude that they don’t see it the same way that most of us do. Not to say that they feel like it’s totally fine and nothing needs addressing. More that their ‘value’ of DL in general plays into the decision making more than we’d like. They don’t seem to be willing to spend big (or at all) on DL. Whatever their criteria for DL is, they went back to the well by bringing back Bruce and Mayowa, rather than targeting productive players who didn’t fit their profile. Maybe they were just too expensive, but I wouldn’t toss out what they’ve done in the past because we think that the DL needs to be priority 1, 2 & 3.

          All that said, I should have another look at Victor. I just didn’t think he looked like a ‘Seahawky’ guy.

        • Rob Staton says:

          Profiles will never be out the window with this front office.

  9. dcd2 says:

    Another Duck – Jevon Holland – announced he’s opting out and going pro. He was graded as the best slot corner in the country last year. That makes 4 Ducks Sewell, Holland, Lenoir & Graham skipping this season.

    I doubt any of these guys end up Hawks, but there are rumors that another opt-out is coming from Eugene. If it’s Jordon Scott, he might be worth a look. Big 3-4 NT, that would probably be a decent 1T alla Poona. No idea on his arm length though.

    • Rob Staton says:

      I hope whoever they bring in is better than Poona.

      I think Ford is overrated. Decent rotational DT. Someone you’re happy bringing off the bench to share the load.

      He didn’t have a good season last year and this year, after two games, he’s being graded among the worst DT’s in the league by PFF.

      For all the people happy to praise the run defense — there’s a reason they’re bringing in Snacks for a look next week. It’s not for Snacks’ quick-twitch pass rushing ability.

      • Lewis says:

        “Decent rotational DT” would be pretty awesome for a guy that was undrafted, if we had a proper starter to go in front of him. As with others like Mayowa, they are asking these guys to play beyond what is reasonable.

        • Rob Staton says:

          Well yes, I agree. I think Ford is overrated by fans and media but that’s not his fault.

          • Gohawks5151 says:

            He is an easy guy to root for. A guy that was talked a lot about on this site for his unique build. But he really should be a 3rd tackle. Like everyone else he is playing too much snaps

          • dcd2 says:

            Agree, but for a UDFA he’s overachieved.

            Scott might be a day three pick, that’s why I mention him. He’s not very tall, and he’s the one guy out of that group that we might be interested in AND have a shot at.

            2021 draft class focus, looks like it is going to be on guys that are strictly day 2/3.

  10. CaptainJack says:

    The two notable UW defensive linemen, Joe Tryon and Levi Onwuzurike, both opted to forgo the season and sign with an agent early. Rob, do you think either of these two would be interesting to look at round 2? I suspect Tryon not playing will knock his stock down, he was being talked about a bit as a first rounder but I don’t quite see that.

  11. Volume12 says:

    D’Eriq King man. Impresses me more & more. They’re dangerous.

    • Gohawks5151 says:

      King looks really good. Taking a lot of steps forward in his game. Jaelen Phillips is a freak. Crazy athletic tip ball pick. Also Amari Gainer is an absolute unit. He could end up like Cam Akers. The most talented player on a ultimately bed team

  12. Donovan says:

    #11 DE for LSU flashed. Know nothing about him, but he looked really good.

    • CaptainJack says:

      Local kid from Edmonds, Ali Gaye. Committed to UW but didn’t qualify for some reason, went to JUCO and then signed with LSU.

  13. Tanner says:

    Rob, we talk about pass rush being a huge need, but what about a left tackle? I know the Big 10 will have a delayed start to the season, but a guy that I am going to be watching is Alaric Jackson from Iowa. He’s listed at 6’6″ and 320 pounds so that fits Solari’s large profile. He plays LT fand he was so good that it kept Tristan Wirfs, a top 15 selection in 2020, on the right side of their line. And we know just how much this FO values getting guys that play in a phone booth (like Damien Lewis last year at LSU) rather than in a spread system. Could he be the heir apparent for Duane Brown? I’d argue that is almost just as important since we’ve seen Russell take off since they had acquired Duane Brown from the Texans.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Well I’ve been talking a lot about the LT position for months.

      But they don’t have a R1 pick until 2023. So good luck finding options in the draft.

      • Robert says:

        We could still find options in this draft. Look at Damien Lewis. I know it is early in the year but he is doing good. He was a third rounder, so we could still find good offensive lineman even if they are not a first-round pick.

        • Big Mike says:

          HUGE difference in availability of a LT vs a RG. Many teams look for LTs regularly. And btw, Lewis is awesome. Pro Bowls in that man’s future.

  14. charlietheunicorn says:

    You have to pencil out the 1st rounders, so you can get an idea of what might be available to Seattle later in the draft. It is going to be incredibly difficult to project past the cream of the crop 1st rounders (top 15). Rob/V12/cha all most likely has a pretty good read on these purple chippers. But everyone else, some 2000+ guys will be tough as heck task to sort through.

    I’m not sure how front offices will evaluate talent this year.
    Base it off of 2018/2019 game tape?
    Will the weight their evaluations towards guys who participate in 2020?

  15. Rob Staton says:

    Shaquem Griffin in the regular season last year:

    80 pass rush snaps

    0 sacks

    1 tackle

  16. Sea Mode says:

    Wait, so why are they even trying to block for him…? 😉

    PFF SEA Seahawks

    When under pressure, Russell Wilson has an adjusted completion percentage of 100% and a passer rating of 156.3, both ranking first in the NFL this season.

  17. Trevor says:

    If Benson can’t play today I am so pumped to see that dynamic pass rush rotation of Collier, Shaq Griffen and Alton Robinson.

    • Henry Taylor says:

      Not sure Mayowa actually makes me that much more excited for that group.

      • Rob Staton says:

        That’s the point, right there.

        We’re hoping a player who is at best a DE3 can play today.

        A career replacement level player.

        Who happens to be playing 90% of our snaps as our only pass rusher.

        What the hell did they do this year.

        • Bmseattle says:

          It’s difficult to imagine how they could have messed up the the defensive line situation more they have.
          It is truly mind boggling how a position group that was a professed priority has ended up being arguably the worst in the league.

        • Trevor says:

          No one was more critical of the Hawks approach to the OL under Cable but IMO the way they have handled the DL this year is far far worse than even that. Sad part is that there was no need for it. If they didn’t have cap space or draft capital at least there would have been an excuse. No Ireally don’t see any fix for this season.

          I truly believe that if Russ got hurt this week that this team would not win another game this season because the Defense is not going to steal a couple and that is both sad and inexcusable IMO considering we went into the off season with a ton of cap space and draft capital.

          Still think we are going to win today in a Big 12 type shootout 38-35. Go Hawks!

          • Rob Staton says:

            It’s on a totally different level to the OL.

            As we talked about to death at the time — Seattle was paying a high number of stars. Wilson, Wagner, Sherman, Earl, Chancellor, KJ, Bennett, Avril, Baldwin and others.

            There had to be a saving somewhere. They had no money. Rightly or wrongly they put their faith in Tom Cable being able to coach up a unit. They also pumped draft picks into the unit — they’ve spent as much as any team on the OL over the years. People always acted like it was Cable making the picks directly. He wasn’t. He gave his input as all positional coaches do. That was explained numerous times. John Schneider is the GM and makes the picks.

            It didn’t work. They had a poor line. I’d argue it never cost them a season though — and it certainly didn’t prevent Wilson from excelling, or Marshawn, or even players like Thomas Rawls on his rookie year. Wilson’s scrambling and ability to evade helped the situation and that played into their thinking.

            With the D-line it’s totally different. They had enough money to spend this year to blow $50-60m. They frittered it away on crap players and didn’t do anything to improve the D-line despite saying it was the priority. They’ve created chaos on the defense as a consequence.

  18. cha says:

    This having an open roster spot is strange, even with COVID protocol delay built in.

    They must either have a handshake agreement with Snacks if he checks out (and weighs out) or be waving a flag at him that they’re holding a spot for him.

    Can’t believe I am cheering for the Bills and Giants right now.

  21. Trevor says:

    Is it just me or does it seem like almost almost every team in the league sucks on D this year for one reason or another. I thought that side of the ball would have an advantage with the lack or practice but I guess no crowd noise really is a big advantage on offense.

    Is there a dominant defensive unit in the league this year? Ravens or Bills maybe but even they are not great.

  22. Trevor says:

    Washingtons DL and our back 7 would be an LOB level D I think.

  23. Tecmo Bowl says:

    If the Giants get the #1 pick do they take Trevor Lawrence?

  24. Sea Mode says:

    I guess the MetLife turf problem is a real thing. Despite it passing all the official inspections, I guess they should just listen to the players on this one.

  29. Easy Answers Hard Choices says:

    Rob – another nice analysis, but it’s quite possible (likely?) Jones won’t last into the 2nd round. And even if he does, the Seahawks will draft too late to acquire him. Russell Wilson’s continued brilliance will guarantee that. Welcome to football hell, a place where PC and JS’ abject incompetence (the past five or so years) has resulted in an inferior roster and very little means for improving it. And not enough cap space to instantly rebuild a roster to Russell Wilson’s liking. The (not) dynamic duo have always been so anxious and proud to demonstrate how much smarter they are than the mainstream – which has produced quirky, inexplicable drafts including the likes of Christine Michael, Germaine Ifedi, Bruce Irvin (instead of Fletcher Cox) Paul Richardson (Devante Adams), Malik McDowell (TJ Watt), Ethan Pocic and the final coup-de-grace – Rashaad Penny (Nick Chubb) They then traded Frank Clark, and with their subsequent draft capital in 2019 were planning on drafting (if reports are to believed) Brian Burns (or Montez Sweat?) and Jonathan Abrams – only to be outsmarted and ending up with….LJ Collier, Marquise Blair and speed bump Cody Barton.To compound the problem, their never-ending mistakes in the draft have resulted in spending more draft capital in trades that yielded Sheldon Richardson and Jadeveon Clowney – based on the misconception that that SR and JC would likely re-sign – why wouldn’t anyone want to play for the smartest guys on the planet? Two characteristics of arrogant people – they believe they’re popular – everyone likes them and wants to be with them, and they also believe they’re smarter than everyone else. Arrogance leads to laziness, unpreparedness and hence no backup plan. Only when it’s too late do arrogant people realize they’ve been outsmarted which leads to acts of desperation – hence I give you the Jamaal Adams trade.

    Russell Wilson is no fool. He wanted the team to add superstars, and instead we end up with Greg Olson, BJ Finney, Benson Mayowa, Bruce Irvin et al. Not exactly what he was asking for. This will be Russell Wilson’s last season in Seattle. He only has so many fingers with which to plug the dam. And when the team finishes 8-8 (or worse) and gives up an average of 450 yards and 30+ points a game, the dam will finally break and RW will grow weary and realize the cause is hopeless. After the season he’ll privately demand a trade – knowing that the Seahawks have absolutely no realistic way of becoming a Super Bowl caliber team in the foreseeable future. The demand will of course come with the implied (or explicit) threat that if a trade is not executed before an appointed time (one month before the draft?) the demand will be made public. Given the realities of the salary cap era, the market for his services will be limited to teams that 1) are only an accomplished QB away from the Super Bowl and 2) have enough cap space and to add RW without imploding their roster. That – in combination with other teams’ knowledge that the Seahawks have been painted into a corner – means the draft capital returned will be less than expected. And the cycle of incompetence is now complete.

    They did it to themselves. Glad I got that off my chest.

  58. Leonardo says:

    On a positive note, it feel like this is the least sloppy our team has been in a long time. The offense is committing fewer penalties and able to pass its way out of trouble when we fall behind the chains. And our special teams has been rock-solid so far (small sample size obviously). Will be crucial to keep this up since our defense will be on the back foot all year.

    There was some pass rush for ya right there

  77. Troy says:

    DK with a complete mental collapse, wow.

  78. jopa726 says:

    Typical Seattle Seahawk Game

  79. bootfall says:

    Okay… I’ve taken a moment to calm down.

    That was a teaching moment.

    That should NEVER happen again and I doubt it ever will happen again.

  80. Sea Mode says:

    Woof. Good think is he’s gonna take a ton of heat for those two plays tomorrow in the team meeting, and had better learn his lesson fast.

  81. Trevor says:

    Well done DK brain cramps all around so far today.

    If the reporters don’t ask Pete repeatedly about the pass rush after this game they should be fired for failing to even resemble reporters.

  82. charlietheunicorn says:

    Brooks with a Pass Defensed according to ESPN

  83. Tony says:

    Dk will have a handful of really dumb moments each year. Absolute beast with bonehead moments. I hope he learns from this.

  84. Sea Mode says:

    I heard “Collier” and “pressure” in the same sentence. I’ll take it.

  85. Scot04 says:

    Great way to lose a game. Secure the damn football. Don’t do a Diva moment before u even get the touchdown. Embarrassingly Stupid

  86. Volume12 says:

    Ugo playing well again

  87. Sea Mode says:

    I see you, Ugo! Another play made.

  88. Volume12 says:

    Hyde had nothing but green grass in front of him on 1st down there

  89. Rob Staton says:

    This has not been a good start on offense.

  90. Pran says:

    Such laziness shows arrogance of DK.

    Ugo, Jamal, Robinson playing well on defense..otherwise defense sucked big time.
    Offense can’t get out of its ownway. So many 3 and outs.

    We have a heart breaker on hand.

  91. AlaskaHawk says:

    That punt was so close to pinning them on the one yard line.

  92. Trevor says:

    Not sure if it is good or bad that Collier and Ugo have looked like the two best defenders today.

  93. Volume12 says:


  94. Rob Staton says:

    Good defensive series.

    Dallas overthinking things big time.

  95. charlietheunicorn says:

    Good defensive series

  96. Tony says:

    This season is all on russ going off. Any somewhat off day he has will sink us.

  97. Mike says:


  98. AlaskaHawk says:

    Go Carson, lets get the running game going.

  99. Rob Staton says:

    We’re running for 6.8 a pop.

    Might be worth a few extra totes.

  100. Volume12 says:

    Go back to DK

  101. Rob Staton says:

    Passing game is so sloppy today

  102. AlaskaHawk says:

    That two man tackle on Wilson might be illegal. One guy was low.

  103. Volume12 says:

    Defensive holding

  104. Volume12 says:

    Mugged Lockett.

    Punch it in w/ CC or fade to DK

  105. Rob Staton says:

    That should be pass interference not a hold. He stopped Lockett making that catch.

  106. Donovan says:

    DJ can beat his rookie DB all day long. Exploit that matchup!

  107. Volume12 says:

    Russ is something else man

  108. Sea Mode says:

    Jourdan Lewis think he’s gonna get away with those pulls or what? That’s 2 now…

  109. Rob Staton says:

    Love both calls on the GL.

    Love the confidence we showed executing too.

  110. charlietheunicorn says:

    Good tempo

    Playing some up tempo offense in 2nd quarter

  111. Volume12 says:

    All he does…?

  112. Tony says:

    Imagine the score if we were clicking on offense.

  113. Sea Mode says:

    V12, be my guest…

  114. Henry Taylor says:

    If we can get out of our own way, we should walk this.

  115. Rob Staton says:

    Dallas just scored in about 45 seconds.

  116. Sea Mode says:

    Uh oh, are they onto us just dropping back and passing now…?

  117. Supra22ssv says:

    Wow Griffen is horrible

  118. Leonardo says:

    Three plays and in, like a walk in the park. This can’t continue

  119. Robbie says:

    KJ is having a rough game. Got smoked.

  120. charlietheunicorn says:

    wow 2 missed XP now

  121. Matt says:

    KJ was never fast, but the dude is running like a 5.2 40 yard dash now

  122. cha says:

    Aikman: I wouldn’t even bother running the ball, and that’s saying something with Zeke Elliot.

  123. Sea Mode says:

    They are taking advantage of Adams blitzing.

  124. Big Mike says:

    Aikman: I wouldn’t even worry about running the ball if I were the cowboys”
    No shit

  125. Gohawks5151 says:

    Can’t make alignment mistakes when you are struggling with pass D. Better shape up Diggs

  126. Rob Staton says:

    Forgot Greg Olsen was playing.

  127. dcd2 says:

    Penalties bailing us out.

  128. Volume12 says:

    Would Cincy trade Carl Lawson?

  129. cha says:

    Is this what Dallas did last week vs Atlanta? Slop in the first half and get it together and close like a freight train in the second half?

    Hawks better shape up quick.

  130. Leonardo says:

    Jourdan Lewis filling in for the 12th man today.

  131. AlaskaHawk says:

    Seahawks can’t run to the right.

  132. charlietheunicorn says:

    Starting RG and LG now on bench : /

  133. Gohawks5151 says:

    Not really bailing us out if they grab crap the receiver because they getting beat.

  134. Rob Staton says:

    What a way to end the half.

  135. Tony says:

    This will be a frustrating season

  136. Tony says:

    Yes pete. Trust your defense. Its 2013 right?!

  137. Pran says:

    We need to be up 2 scores to win this game…does not look like it’s gonna happen the way offense is playing sandlot.

  138. dcd2 says:

    Shaq!! Nice!

  139. Sea Mode says:

    RW, with all his brilliance, has gotten happy feet a few times this game.

  140. Volume12 says:


  141. Pran says:

    Duane brown is a disappointment today.

  142. charlietheunicorn says:



  143. Volume12 says:


    Sea Mode, all he does…?

  144. Sea Mode says:

    Hat trick, baby!

  145. AlaskaHawk says:

    Whoo hoo, what an ending to the first half. I feel like i”ve already been through a full game. I hope my heart can take the second half.

    Excellent catches by Olsen and Lockett- with his 3 touchdowns..

  146. Ukhawk says:

    The only thing preventing me from going enjoying this game is Troy Aikman.

    Cannot believe he’s allowed to call this game – such a homer.

    • Rob Staton says:

      I never understand the negativity about Buck and Aikman.

      As someone who has commentated on games for 20 years, I think they are absolutely at the top of their game.

      • Tony says:

        But the thought of giving troy every cowboy game is annoying. I like my broadcasters somewhat unbiased.

    • Pran says:

      Someone suggested to mute TV and tune to Steve Raible on Radio

      • Rob Staton says:

        Then people can do that.

        I think it’s a treat when we get Buck & Aikman.

        I do this job and I know I’m nowhere near their level but I’m telling you — EVERY fan base thinks EVERYONE is biased. And they never are.

        You do this job as a pro.

    • Gohawks5151 says:

      I like them. I think they are fair. Aikman just said the Olsen penalty should be overturned. Honestly it’s Bucks voice I remember vs Green Bay in the NFC championship game

    • cha says:

      Have you read or seen some of his comments about the Cowboys and their leadership in recent years? I don’t know, I just don’t see any favoritism.

      Joe & Troy, Jim & Tony and Al & Chris are very, very good right now.

      And on the plus side, ESPN got rid of Booger on MNF and Fox hired Brock Huard, who did a nice job today on the broadast I thought.

  147. Rob Staton says:

    What a mess of a half.

    Nice of Dallas to make up for Metcalf’s brain fart by missing XP’s and giving up a pick in just enough time to score.

    Wish I believed we were good enough to pull away but I suspect we’re set up for another heart attack game.

    • Trevor says:

      Mess is how I would describe the NFL season so far.

      One big advantage about having a elite top 3 QB is that all other things being equal you have a huge Edge when things are messy.

    • Gohawks5151 says:

      I’m not gonna short Shaq on that one. It was a nice play on the ball

  148. Tony says:

    Ill take the lead, but this game screams last minute win/nail biter.

  149. Steve Nelsen says:

    Should be 30-15 with 4 1st-half TDs. The D has handled the run well and got some pressure. I don’t think Dallas can stop Russ.

  150. Sea Mode says:

    A safety, a doinker, a blocked FG, a 60+ yard bomb punched out for a touchback, confusing as heck officiating (although in the end they’ve got it correct), and a halftime score never before seen in the NFL… this first half has been really weird.

  151. DriveByPoster says:

    Do we have a shot at a scorigami here? I’ve missed it so!

  152. Trevor says:

    In the next 2 drafts we need to find a pass rusher, DT , RT and LT. Should be simple with no 1st round picks. Considering we have only drafted one good pass rusher in the JS era and not drafted any good OT or at least that they felt were good enough to get a 2nd contract.

  153. charlietheunicorn says:

    Lockett had 6 catches… and had 4 misses out of 10 targets.
    But as long as he keeps pounding the endzone with catches he makes, I’ll take it.

  154. Trevor says:

    This offense is so good that they can play flat out awful and still put up 23 in a half. Should have been 30 if DK never had a brain cramp.

    If they can figure out the OL it is certainly the best in the NFC I think.

  155. cha says:

    You simply cannot bank on Dallas coming out in the second half and giving you the game with sloppy penalties and bad ST play.

    Time for some of those famous PC halftime adjustments.

    The offense has to play with purpose. “This is what we’re going to do. Try and stop us.” Run Carson and Hyde. Get the OL some confidence. Power formation. GET WILL DISSLY INVOLVED. They’re making this way harder than it should be.

    Griffen’s INT should be a boost. You CAN defend these guys. Get sticky. You can’t let guys run free in the secondary.

  156. Rob Staton says:

    Yes what a start!

    A blitz actually worked!

  157. cha says:


  158. Volume12 says:


  159. Gohawks5151 says:

    Brotha Reeeeeeed!!!!!!

  160. Henry Taylor says:

    Let’s Go!

  161. cha says:


  162. Rob Staton says:


    Love how we are dealing in the red zone.

  163. charlietheunicorn says:

    Play call worked like a champ.

    Sending a bouquet of flowers to the OC

  164. Big Mike says:

    Prescott got hit right after he let go of the ball on that interception by Griffin and then we just got the turn over. It’s amazing what pressure on a quarterback does for a defense

  165. AlaskaHawk says:

    A great defensive play leads to the touchdown. Nice. I love seeing that killer instinct on both sides of the ball.

  166. Tony says:

    Yes! Lets go!!!!

  167. Rob Staton says:

    Please, please, please.

    Find a way not to make this close.

    Please just win. Comfortably. I want to sit down and not pace around the room tonight.

  168. Trevor says:

    Kudos to Pete in that he recognizes they can’t win 1 v 1 battles on the DL so he is blitzing like crazy. If they can learn to defend behind that over the next month it might be the only way they have a chance.

  169. Sea Mode says:

    That’s the way we like it!

    Oh, and one more TD and Russ beats the record for most TDs over 3 games, right?

  170. Rob Staton says:

    Poor from Griffin there. He’s right on the spot to make the play and make them punt.

  171. Rob Staton says:


    Either Fox messed up with their red line there or something very strange happened.

  172. Volume12 says:

    That’s a BS spot.

  173. cha says:

    Hawks can smell blood. Put this one away guys.

  174. Volume12 says:

    Alton again

  175. charlietheunicorn says:

    That was a good defensive stand there

  176. Pran says:

    Amadi is playing lights out.

  177. Trevor says:

    I have been impressed with Amadi seems like a baller even if a little limited physically.

  178. charlietheunicorn says:

    Dak not helping his case to get paid

  179. Trevor says:

    Would love to see them pound the rock with Carson this drive.

  180. Steve Nelsen says:

    Come on Russ! One more for the record and we all go get a beer.

  181. Volume12 says:

    Keep running CC

  182. Rob Staton says:

    Hell of a shoestring tackle by Lawrence there.

  183. Volume12 says:

    What a freakin punt!

    • Trevor says:

      He is a special punter. Never thought I would ever say that.

      Special teams has been awesome so far this year. What a difference from the last couple of years.

  184. Rob Staton says:

    Really hope a combo of O-line meltdowns and Wilson jitters isn’t going to become a trend.

    Nick Bellore — BAMF with that tackle.

    Lamb felt that.

    And what a punt.

    • cha says:

      That’s prime 2018 Dickson. An intentional line drive punt that dribbles deep.

      He’s back to being a weapon.

  185. Pran says:

    How is Aldon smith playing that well.. for <1m.

  186. Sea Mode says:

    Lol, colorful from DJ Dallas there…

  187. bootfall says:

    Ceedee’s lucky his leg is still attached to his body after that tackle.

  188. Rob Staton says:

    And there’s the Seahawks’ defense we all know.

    Griffin. Deary me.

  189. dcd2 says:

    Oh man. Come on Shaq

  190. dcd2 says:

    These TD drives that take less than a minute are brutal

  191. charlietheunicorn says:

    Time to get the offense in gear, might need 45 pt

  192. Trevor says:

    Teams are going to realize they don’t even need to try and run the ball. Just pass, pass , pass and focus on blitz pick up.

  193. Rob Staton says:

    Dak’s already at 292 passing yards.

    Nearly 100 more than Wilson.

    This defense… as I’ve been saying… is going to cost them a game they have no business losing.

  194. Leonardo says:

    We’re going to set the record for most 2 or 3 play touchdown drives conceded

  195. Supra22ssv says:

    At what point do we bench griffen

  196. Thomas Wells says:

    Someone else can pay griffin big money.

  197. Sea Mode says:


  198. charlietheunicorn says:

    Give RW more time to cook

  199. Rob Staton says:

    Quick reminder that Dallas have scored 22 points in 2.5 quarters, have 292 passing yards.

    They’re not running the ball — again — because they don’t have to.

    11 runs for Zeke only.

    • Denver Hawker says:

      I’ve thought Ford and Mone have done a great job against the run. At some point I think it’s fair to acknowledge they have a good run D, while also noting the pash rush is garbage and teams are going to pass.

  200. Rob Staton says:

    Why, when Wilson has forever, does nobody uncover?

    Happened a few times today.

  201. dcd2 says:

    Appreciate that breakdown from Aikman. Trying to show zone while in man is why Shaq was so far behind in coverage.

  202. Rob Staton says:

    Needed that conversion.

    Momentum was swinging.

  203. dcd2 says:

    RW and Locket are dialed

  204. Rob Staton says:

    Jordyn Brooks questionable to return with a knee injury.

  205. Sea Mode says:

    Whew… good thing RW to Lockett is unstoppable…

  206. Matt says:

    This OL has got to figure it out. This is way too difficult.

  207. Rob Staton says:

    The offense man.

    When you rely on it… you can’t slump like this.

    Someone needs to make a play.

  208. Pran says:

    That sack is on Russ. He had green grass in front of him.

  209. cha says:

    They needed that drive. If nothing to chew the clock and get a FG.

    This offense needs to play defense.

  210. Rob Staton says:

    Here comes the hot-knife through butter again.

    They’re adjusting. Why can’t we?

  211. Shadrey says:

    Just got off work to tune into this game and looks like it is playing out just like everyone thought it would? What a big depature from last year where it seemed like seahawks games got weirder and weirder. This season, the defense sucks, Russell is great, and it’s gonna be a one score game.

  212. Tony says:

    This is frustrating watching this defense.

  213. Rob Staton says:

    If the QB is wandering around thinking of a pitch — hammer him. It’s an invitation. One to hit the QB and two to make him pitch which could lead to a fumble.

  214. Rob Staton says:

    It was 30-15 not that long ago.

  215. cha says:

    This is not even on the pass rush.

    The corners are having a terrible game. You KNOW the ball is coming. You’ve got to fight.

  216. Volume12 says:


  217. charlietheunicorn says:

    Amadi another play

    • Sea Mode says:


      (but I know they’re going to drive it right back into FG range next time they get it back, so I’m not pinning my hopes on a 2 pt lead)

  218. Matt says:

    DK’s showboating really, really kills us.

    This defense may end up as a bottom 3 unit. I’m now actually truly questioning the Adams trade. He’s a great player and I like him…but this unit needs so damn much to even be competent.

  219. Chris says:

    Horrendous. Lost total control of this game on all sides of the ball.

  220. Pran says:

    Not long ago secondary was considered to be a strength.. just stinks more than DL

  221. Big Mike says:

    Obviously BADLY in need of a TD drive

  222. Rob Staton says:

    Saw a tweet saying Jamal Adams took himself out of the game with an injury. Threw his helmet down.

  223. Rob Staton says:

    Want to be MVP?

    Get a touchdown here and go two scores up.

  224. Tony says:

    Its official. We need to match tds here on out.

  225. Troy says:

    Rob you called this game being a Big 12 game. Absolutely pathetic defensive performance.

  226. Mac says:

    Hopefully Adams will be able to come back, need a long td drive

  227. Tony says:

    Losing adams makes this the worst defense in nfl.

  228. Rob Staton says:

    My word the offense has been hot trash in this half.

    Absolutely pissed this one away. Poor on both sides of the ball.

  229. Shadrey says:

    Good thing we have Snacks Harrison coming in next week! Watching this game so far all I’ve been thinking is if only we had an overweight vet DT who was retired until now, then things would be good!

  230. Rowdy says:

    The hawks look like there mailing this thing in

  231. Sea Mode says:

    Welp, at least ST is on point…

    Here we go again.

  232. Rob Staton says:

    This feels like the game we’ve been warning about.

    Losing one they had no business losing.

  233. cha says:

    They need to put a warning label on Seahawks games like those pharma drug commercials.

    “Watching the Seahawks will cause vomiting, diarrhea, uncontrollable falling down, and will decrease your sex drive. Do not watch Seahawks game if you have a heart condition or are prone to depression.”

  234. dcd2 says:

    Are you freaking kidding me!!!

  235. Rob Staton says:

    You’ve got to be joking.

    It’s Dallas’ freakin day.

    How did that not end in a pick????

    This drive is a dagger.

  236. Volume12 says:

    How was that not a pick?!

  237. AlaskaHawk says:

    OH my , Flowers kicked it to Gallup. Geez.

  238. Chris says:

    You have got to be kidding me… how that ends up a completion?!?

  239. Leonardo says:

    Tre Flowers…couldn’t be easier, he was sitting down!

  240. Sea Mode says:

    COME. ON. TRE.

  241. Pran says:

    How the hell he can’t catch it… sucks. Pete ..ur corners are trash.

  242. Tony says:

    Ok, this is what a collapse loss looks like. Flowers int wouldve been huge.

  243. Sea Mode says:

    Haha, he may be old and slow, but he’s still the screen sniffer!

  244. Rob Staton says:

    A slow death march.

  245. cha says:

    Shaquem: “Maybe if I run straight at the OT and then spin that will work!”

  246. cha says:

    PC started Dunbar with little practice, all the legal drama and about half a camp.

    Now I see why. Flowers has regressed badly.

  247. Pran says:

    This game will define if Russ is MVP or not.

  248. Tony says:

    Things i want to stop hearing.

    Pete is a db guru
    We draft better in late rounds.

    • Matt says:

      My favorite part of the “we draft better in the later rounds” evolved from finding Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman to “well so and so made the roster.”

  249. Matt says:

    “My name is Tre Flowers. Watch me not finish this play.”

    My God…I almost feel bad for the guy.

  250. Shadrey says:

    Do you think Pete has any vested interest in making sure that Russell owns the record for most 4th quarter comebacks?

  251. Sea Mode says:

    Maybe we should just let them score quick so Russ has enough time…

  252. Rowdy says:

    Thats what said

  253. dcd2 says:

    Encroachment: Everyone

  254. DC says:

    Hawks have given up over 1200 yards passing in 3 games.

  255. Leonardo says:

    Giving up 400+ passing yards every week is not a plan well-executed, no matter what Pete tries to say.

  256. Volume12 says:

    What’s Shaq celebrating? Him & Flowers are why this is even a ballgame

  257. dcd2 says:

    Really need a 4 minute drive here

  258. Sea Mode says:

    Welp, here we go. Settle down, Russ. Plenty of time for a drive.

  259. charlietheunicorn says:

    Not having Dunbar is showing up now….. : /

  260. Volume12 says:

    Lions beat the Cards

  261. Pran says:

    I am waiting for 40 points on the board…

  262. Volume12 says:

    Russ has to make something happen w/ his legs

  263. charlietheunicorn says:

    Carson : /

  264. AlaskaHawk says:

    Oh no, not Carson.

  265. Rob Staton says:

    Injuries are killing us.

    Dunbar, Adams, Brooks, Carson.

  266. Volume12 says:

    Oh no. No, no.

  267. dcd2 says:

    That looked bad.

  268. Tony says:

    Ok, the hell with this season. Weve been destroyed by injuries the last 2 games.

  269. Holding his leg and twisting with all his weight??? WTF… Personal foul and ejection!

  270. Sea Mode says:

    He had him wrapped and on the ground. Absolutely no need to roll over with his leg in a death grip ffs.

  271. Volume12 says:

    Why’d he gun that?

  272. AlaskaHawk says:

    Olson has made several good catches this half.

  273. Sea Mode says:


  274. DC says:

    Don’t play for the field goal!

  275. Volume12 says:

    All these injuries, around the league, are good examples of either needing a couple pre season games or if not, more contact in practice. QBs don’t need it. Everyone else needs to get hit.

  276. charlietheunicorn says:

    *Rob pacing around his house right now*

  277. charlietheunicorn says:


  278. dcd2 says:


  279. Tony says:

    Too much time

  280. Rob Staton says:

    Someone on defense, somehow, is going to have to make a play.

  281. Sea Mode says:

    Great pass pro.

    But now how we gonna stop them?

  282. Nathan W. says:

    Oh my god. Back to back games. Comes down to the last drive

  283. Pran says:

    That 2nd down call is bad.. now they have a lot of time to match

  284. Volume12 says:

    When is Penny eligible to return anyways? He was rolling last year

  285. Volume12 says:

    Seattle’s bye cant come soon enough. Good thing it’s in 3 weeks

  286. Shadrey says:

    With how atrocious the defense is, it’s easy to focus on all of the many, many mistakes. But how cool is it to root for a qb as great as Wilson? What a response when the offense looked so bad in the second half.

  287. AlaskaHawk says:

    ahh, the vaunted prevent defense.

  288. Trevor says:

    This isn’t when you need a pass rush!

    Hope Dallas scores really fast to give Russ another crack to get in FG range because they are not going to stop Dallas at least I don’t think so.

  289. charlietheunicorn says:

    40 yards out… oh ohhhh

  290. charlietheunicorn says:

    49 is flashing… got some juice

  291. dcd2 says:

    Quem is all over the place!

  292. dcd2 says:

    Alton Robinson!!!

  293. charlietheunicorn says:

    Robinson, wowza

  294. Volume12 says:

    Alton again!

  295. AlaskaHawk says:

    Oh yes, Robinson. Let hope for a miracle begin.

  296. Sea Mode says:


  297. charlietheunicorn says:

    PASS RUSH!!!!!!!

  298. Volume12 says:


  299. AlaskaHawk says:

    Yes, the much maligned defense ends the game!!!!

  300. Gohawks5151 says:

    Practice squad!!!!!!!!!!!! Robinson and Neil

  301. Trevor says:

    Nice job Robinson. Why has he not been active till today?

  302. charlietheunicorn says:

    *Rob throws away article about how Seattle blew it*

    LOL 😛

    • Lewis says:

      Tbh, I feel like the defense showed a little bit of a spark today. They need more consistency, obviously, but some of the young guys did good things.

  303. Sea Mode says:

    Lets gooooooooooooooooooo

  304. Volume12 says:

    1st place in the division w/ Miami & a lowly Vikings squad next.

  305. dcd2 says:

    WOW!! Great effort by Dak there.

    1st place baby!!

  306. cha says:

    Man this is a repeat of last week.

    Rob, just cut and paste your Instant Reaction.

  307. charlietheunicorn says:

    1st QB in Seahawks history with back to back 5 TD games….. wow


    • charlietheunicorn says:

      According to ESPN Stats & Information, Wilson becomes the fifth player in NFL history to throw at least four TD passes in three straight games, joining Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Mahomes and Drew Brees.

  308. Trevor says:

    13-0 when opposing QB throws for 400 yds in PC era. That has to be most insane stat ever.

    • Gohawks5151 says:

      Seriously. Crazy

    • Volume12 says:

      Throw to score, run to win. That’ll never change. Even if your not getting picking up yards in the run game, you control the clock & dictate the tempo. And if teams don’t wanna run against Seattle, RW will play shoot out.

  309. OH Hawk says:

    16-0 and a couple of heart attacks on they way.

  310. Sea Mode says:

    Honestly, I’m not sure we can beat anyone if Jamal Adams misses time.

  311. Supra22ssv says:

    This truly feels like a loss even though it was a win. What an absolute mess of a defence and it only gets worse with all the injuries we have.

  312. Trevor says:

    There has to be some correlation between no pre season and all these injuries. Almost every team has been hit.

    • Forty20 says:

      There absolutely is. In recent years I have had the chance to speak at length with a number of physios and athletic trainers in Australia that work within one of our major professional competitions and players that miss preseasons due to injury or other causes are far, far, far more likely to sustain serious soft tissue injuries based on their internal numbers.

  313. Tony says:

    Atleast we can look at this team and not argue over the main problem.

  314. Sea Mode says:

    Rob, don’t forget to add how we were saved by penalties in crucial moments time and time again.

  315. Aaron says:

    Heart Attack Hawks two weeks in a row…

    Can the Hawks survive the injuries?

    Brooks, Carson, Lewis, Adams…

  316. DriveByPoster says:

    Are you not entertained!?

  317. Sea Mode says:

    Well, catch y’all tomorrow on the instant reaction piece. It’s 2AM in Europe…

  318. charlietheunicorn says:

    OL picked it up in the second half. Had a few breakdowns, but overall provided a pocket for the passing attack….. not bad for shuffling the OL 2-3 times in the game, due to injuries.

  319. jopa726 says:

    It would be so funny. If Pete Carroll answered every question at the press conference about defense with a monotone answer “We’re on to Miami”.

  320. GoHawksDani says:

    Wow what a crazy game…
    Some defensive players stepped up big times but so many injuries and some concerns.
    Offense was pretty bad all around. Bad game for Russ he was not on target and sometimes held the ball too long. OL had some ups and downs. Lockett is awesome. DK…what the f…. How can he be so stupid???
    Olsen seems mostly like wasted money. Dissly is almost non-existent. Swain has potential.
    Alton Robinson is probably our best DL player. Reed had a nice play at least. Mayowa shouldn’t be starter but he can flash sometime. So many unknown players felt totally like a preseason game.
    I know Griffin had an INT but he’s just a weak corner constantly beaten. Flowers slow too and because of that too handsy. This secondary is not a good one. I know DL hurts them too, but that is not the issue. They’re always beaten immediately.
    But…all in all I think this game is won because of the crazy effort of the defense

  321. Steve Nelsen says:

    A huge win. I was hoping to see the run D keep Zeke in check, especially in the first half, and that happened. I was hoping to see some continued improvement from some of the young pass rushers and that happened.

    But, I am cringing to hear the injury reports. Hopefully nobody is out for the season.

  322. Ashish says:

    #49 played lights out. I’m not big fan but he popped up showed lot of intent with so many injuries expect him to see more playing time.
