The Christmas Eve mock draft

December 24th, 2020 | Written by Rob Staton

Merry Christmas to all. Here is my traditional Christmas Eve mock draft for 2020.

Inspired by Robbie on the podcast yesterday, I have the Jets trading out of the #2 pick after somehow managing to find a way to remove Trevor Lawrence from their future.

Thoughts on the Seahawks pick

In all of my 2021 mock drafts so far, I’ve tried to look at the scenarios where the Seahawks can be opportunistic in the late second round.

I think that’s a possible approach this year. They have hit the jackpot with players who dropped into this range in the past (D.K. Metcalf, Frank Clark). It’s possible they will seek a similar opportunity, considering they don’t have a first round pick.

Therefore, I’ve tried to find talented and/or highly athletic players who might drop a bit. That has included, so far…

— Haskell Garrett (shot in the face earlier this year yet has made a full recovery)

— Marvin Wilson (inconsistent play but a physical phenom)

— Jaelen Phillips (former five-star recruit but suffered concussions at UCLA)

In this projection I’ve gone for an even more extreme projection.

Landon Dickerson is a terrific offensive lineman. I hadn’t fully focused on him until last week. His toughness leaps off the screen. For the 2020 season he was credited with zero sacks and only one quarterback pressure. According to PFF, he was the most valuable O-liner in college football per ‘wins above average’.

I was preparing to pair him with the Seahawks in my next mock. His personality and competitive attitude, plus his size, seemed like a good fit. Ethan Pocic is a free agent in the off-season and while he could easily be re-signed — the Seahawks don’t have limitless resources this off-season. Some players are going to need to be replaced on the cheap. If they can keep him for a modest sum, that’s great. I’m not sure what his market will be though. He could actually receive a lot of interest given he’s only 25 and now has a strong season as a starter on his résumé.

So Dickerson was going to be the guy for Seattle here. Then I watched the SEC Championship game and he suffered a serious knee injury.

I considered changing the pick because the Seahawks have had a bad enough experience with an injured second rounder this year. However, I decided to stick with it. After all, I’m trying to identify players who could fall into range and can play beyond their draft position. Dickerson has the talent to achieve that if he can stay healthy.

Unfortunately staying healthy is the big problem.

In 2016 he tore his ACL. In 2017 he had surgery on his right ankle. In 2018 he missed the whole season due to complications over a high ankle sprain. He then transferred from Florida State to Alabama and suffered this knee injury at the end of the year.

You could say he’s injury prone. You could also argue he’s unlucky. There’s nothing unique about his frame that suggests he’s liable to get injured. It’s also worth noting the injuries are different.

Even so, he has had some problems staying on the field. After the Darrell Taylor experience, the Seahawks quite likely wouldn’t make this pick in round two. He might even last longer than he otherwise would and could be available later.

Nevertheless, he’s a bad ass center who is beloved in Alabama:

Here was quarterback Mac Jones’ reaction to the injury:

“Landon is one of my best friends, and if Landon is going to stay on the ground then you know something’s wrong. He tried to get up, but I think our trainers were like ‘Stay down, stay down.’

“It just goes to show, that guy will put his whole life on the line for Alabama football and if he could he’d play as soon as he can for us because he just wants to be back, but obviously the injuries are the injuries.”

I just want more guys who play like Dickerson on this team. He straddles the fine line between what’s acceptable and not. He’s what an offensive lineman should be — a bit quirky, a bit crazy and tough as old leather.

Provided you do all the requisite medical checks and don’t find anything that points to all these injuries, he might be worth taking a chance on. Obviously you’d have to see signs of a positive recovery from his latest setback too.

I don’t think it’s particularly likely he’s taken by Seattle here because they only have one pick in the first three rounds. They also have a lot of potential needs, with several players out of contract in the off-season. Drafting a player who is recovering from injury with the only high pick you own could just be too risky.

That said, to me he plays on tape like a future multi-year starter in the NFL.

He’s also athletic — scoring 100.05 in SPARQ which is a great mark for an interior offensive lineman. He was the #64 overall High School recruit per ESPN in 2016.

I’ll clarify one more time that I’m doing these projections for a team picking in the late second round, in a college football season hammered by a global pandemic. It’s not easy to come up with new names but that’s what I want to try and do. I want to present different options.

I also have no issue with the Seahawks trying to hit a home run with their pick in round two — provided that next year, they’re able to do all the full medical checks. That was my issue with the Taylor pick. If ever there was a time to be cautious it was the 2020 draft. Teams simply didn’t have anywhere close to the necessary information to make big calls on injuries. Seattle not only took a gamble — they gave up two high picks to do so.

If Dickerson or anyone else can be tested thoroughly — and who knows whether that’ll be possible in 2021 — then the risk is at least somewhat managed.

Health permitting, he has the talent, potential and attitude to set the tone for your O-line for a decade.

Other quick draft notes

— It’s still early but this is looking like a strong draft for interior linemen on both sides of the ball. There are a number of talented defensive tackles available and there appears to be some strong options at center and guard too.

— The SEC game against Florida sold me on Najee Harris. He is just so classy combining elegance, power and size with an ability to do everything — run inside or out, run good routes and provide a dynamic weapon that can help lead an offense.

— Sadly for the Seahawks, without a late first round pick in 2021, there are a lot of appealing options available in that range. This looks like another draft that will be significantly elevated by underclassmen and there should be some fantastic prospects available in the top-50.

    I’ve been excited all week for this mock! Interesting to see Wilson above Fields in this one! Thanks Rob for your hard work this year! Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  2. Isaac says:

    Do you see Seattle keeping DJ Reed in as the starting corner come next year? Whenever the camera is on him he seems to make a play and he has a 90.8 off grade vs mclaurin for most of the game. As Pete Carroll said, he has that angry Doug attitude when on that field and that is something we need more of. Thank you for your time and merry Christmas!

    • James Kupihea says:

      I have no relevant input. I do know however, that I find myself cheering for the kid more than anyone else on this defense. He’s flying around, he’s playing with an edge, and everyone is noticing.

    • Rob Staton says:

      I think there’s a decent chance, yes

  3. Zxvo3 says:

    I appreciate the work you put into these mock drafts Rob. I watched the podcast last night and I guessed the wrong offensive lineman. I guessed it was going to be Jalen Mayfield from Michigan. But I do like Landon Dickerson. But like you said, I don’t know if they would pick him as their 1st pick with his injury history.

    I feel if Marvin Wilson was there, they would definitely pick Wilson. He fits their high upside, physically dominant player. Although he hasn’t played as well this season, I would still pick him.

    I also wanted to hear your opinion on two DL prospects. Jordan Davis from Georgia and Jayson Oweh from Penn State. With Davis, he’s listed as 6’6 320. He does have the size the Seahawks have “craved at the DT position. He’s tough, good against the run, but he’s not good at pass rushing. He’s sort of similar to Raekwon Davis from last year. I think the Seahawks would also be interested in him if he was there. Is Jason Oweh declaring for this draft? If he is, I’m curious to see why he isn’t in the top 2 rounds. He looks like a LEO/EDGE and would fit in well with the Seahawks.

    • Rob Staton says:

      I see Jordan Davis as a classic anchor. Some teams value the position early and I can see him being a R2 target for a 3-4 team. Oweh just flatters to deceive for me. Athletic, yes, but doesn’t show enough with it.

  4. pdway says:

    I don’t follow CFB closely at all – so don’t have much to contribute – but when I see you have LB’s going as high as 5th and 7th overall, they must be pretty special players.

  5. Scot04 says:

    Another Great Podcast Rob and Robbie,
    I as well don’t care how they win as long as they win; but would also prefer a convincing win for once.

    Curtis thanks for your weekly watch notes, always a good read.

    In regards to Dickerson, great center. Love how he plays, if not for his injury I could have seen him going late 1st early 2nd. I’d been looking at centers.
    Any thoughts on Michael Menet center for Penn if we trade down. I really like him as well.
    I guess if were only going to have a few picks, atleast it’s a draft for trenches which we need. Hopefully a good DL or OL pick at our pick and they go BPA.

    • Scot04 says:

      Rob, on a separate note.

      I know I’m an arctice behind on this.
      I enjoy the blog knowing you’re going to write about what you want to write about.
      It makes me look forward to what might be coming next, especially this year.
      I’ve really enjoyed finding a place not afraid to challenge things the Seahawks have done or are currently doing.
      It’s been obvious to me from the get go you are a true fan and enjoy talking about the team; whether it’s positive or critical.
      I believe coaches, players, or ownership should be challenged when necessary.
      It’s been a relief to find a place where a fan can find a place for both.

      You have provided a great atmosphere full of wonderful thought out content.
      Whether it be on the draft, Free-agency, coaching, player fits, salary issues and so much more.
      It provides such  a great place for discussion amongst us fans & is by far the best Seahawks website there is.
      I myself am very greatful, and in doing so you have provided a great gift i get to appreciate almost daily throughout this year.

      Thanks again for all you have put into it, as I said it is greatly appreciated.
      Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  6. TomLPDX says:

    Hey Rob/Robbie, really enjoyed your podcast this year. Dallas moving away from Dak is such a Jerry thing to do and for Dak’s sake, kind of hope they do it. I like Dak and think he is a top 10 QB and Dallas mgmt are fools. Good luck Dak!

    I like the move for Kellen Mond to Indy. I actually think that would be a good play for their future. I’ve watched Mond his entire college career and seen him progressively get better. He has his flashes and with a coach like Frank Reich, could really maximize his abilities.

    I hope the Seahawks start thinking about our LT situation instead of replacing Pocic…keep Pocic for 2-3 more years and see where he ascends to. I love Duane Brown but also know his time is limited. Do we have his replacement on the roster already or do we need to bring someone in to get ready to take his place.

    I want another DK!!! 🙂

  7. charlietheunicorn says:

    Santa, all I want for Christmas is the Seahawks smashing the Rams.

    For everyone on this blog, be safe… love your family and be kind to each other.

    Always the best from the Pacific North-West! Cheers

    • BobbyK says:

      I don’t care about the Rams, “all” I want for Christmas is for the Seahawks to win the Super Bowl.

  8. charlietheunicorn says:

    Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith and Florida quarterback Kyle Trask are the finalists for the 86th annual Heisman Memorial Trophy, it was announced Thursday.

    Runners up: Alabama’s Najee Harris in fifth, Iowa State’s Breece Hall sixth, Fields from Ohio State seventh, BYU’s Zach Wilson eighth, Ian Book of Notre Dame ninth and Florida’s Kyle Pitts in 10th.

  9. Big Mike says:

    Merry Christmas to everyone here! This place makes the season bright (and all the other seasons).

    On the agenda today: the annual viewing of A Christmas Story, Saints v. Viqueens and king crab legs for dinner.

    • Ashish says:

      Rob, thanks for Christmas article. Is there any OT hawks can land in 2nd round? D Brown replacement needs to be there on roaster this year.

      • Submanjoe says:

        It’s obvious to me, Rob is spot on, they draft this center from Alabama and he gets shifted to left tackle and struggles to adjust, plays some guard too, Pocic of course is resigned and starts at center, and on we go! Haha Merry Christmas!

      • Rob Staton says:

        It’s always hard to find a left tackle after the first frame

  10. Cortez Kennedy says:

    Finishing the year strong with the past two articles Rob. Thank your for providing us with honest, uncompromising analysis this past year, kind of a weird one. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  11. Gohawks5151 says:

    Merry Christmas SDB! Wishing everyone a great day

  12. cha says:

    Hopefully that means Jarran Reed plays Sunday.

    Brady Henderson
    @BradyHenderson
    The Seahawks list RT Brandon Shell and S Damarious Randall as questionable for Sunday vs. the Rams. LG Mike Iupati is doubtful. RB DeeJay Dallas is out. DT Jarran Reed has no designation so he’s expected to play despite two missed practices. We’ll hear from Pete Carroll tomorrow.
    1:20 PM · Dec 25, 2020

  13. clbradley17 says:

    Merry Christmas everyone. Thanks for putting out the mock draft Rob. I can see us going OL or DL next draft. Another great 2nd day RB we passed on a few years ago with all the size/speed combo we look for is Alvin Kamara of the Saints. Today with the 4th qtr. just started, he has about 150 yards and 5 TDs.

  14. clbradley17 says:

    This mock draft has us looking ahead very soon to not only the Senior Bowl (Jan. 30) and NFL Combine (March 8-11), but also your great interview podcasts with possibly some of the players above and several others. And although it would be almost impossible with the covid this time, I bet we see you doing tons of video podcasts on YouTube in a little over a year with players and coaches, Tony Pauline and many more at the 2022 Senior Bowl.

  15. Hoggs41 says:

    How would peoplenrank these 4 free agents?

    KJ Wright
    Shaquille Griffin
    Chris Carson
    Ethan Pocic

    • MyChestIsBeastMode says:

      By Talent:
      1. Carson
      2. Wright
      3. Shaq
      4. Pocic

      By need to re-sign
      1. Shaq – Solid. Big hole at CB without him and outside FAs seem to struggle to adjust to our system

      The rest are all expendable to a degree and should be re-signed if the price is right.

      2. Carson – Penny is not Carson but still has talent and a cheap rookie contract and hopefully he retained his breakaway speed.
      3. Pocic – because of the sheer lack of solid lineman in the NFL. But that same reason could price him out of range.
      4. Wright – only #4 because father time has to catch up to eventually (even though he is playing as solid as ever this year) + Brooks on a rookie LB deal is showing flashes at times and I believe his ascension is part of the team’s plan.

      • dj 1/2 way says:

        Agree. Well put. Four starters are hard and expensive to replace. The only candidate for a down year is Wright, and only because this year was so good.

        Sign them all. Get a good deal with 2-4 years and team options on the second half.

        All four are important. Even if they add a running back they can still use Carson. Same applies to the rest. First one out? Wright is the closest to the end, but of the four the biggest difference maker this year with Carson close behind.

      • Rob Staton says:

        In no way could I place Griffin at the top of this list.

        He’s not that good and will be the most expensive by far.

        Neither is Carson expendable. He has a lot of injuries but the difference with and without him is titanic for the offense. Sadly there’s just no realistic alternative but to sign him to a short term extension.

        • Ben says:

          Completely agree with this take Rob. Griffin- what has he done to warrant a 2nd contract (with a hefty raise to boot)? No way I’d sign him for top CB money- which is what he is going to command. Carson just can’t stay in the field. I fear the Hawks will overlook that and pay him. Hopefully not more than a 2 year deal. I’d rate the signing the guys listed as follows:

          1. Pocic keep some continuity a C.

          2. Griffin. Not because I want him but this was the list we were given and it would be a position of need in 2021.
          3 Carson. For cheap (unlikely)
          4 KJ. I’d like to move him up further on this list, but age and salary demands likely make him expendable. Plus there is too much $ tied up in the LB position already. Would love it if KJ came back and played LEO (also unlikely).

          • Thomas Wells says:

            Anyone think the franchise or transition tag is a realistic possibility for any of these guys? Using one of those tags on carson might not be the worst idea. With the franchise tag we get him for a one year deal and can try to negotiate a short extension. With the transition we get to let him test the market but we have the right to match. The latter might be the beat option if we can’t get a reasonable short term deal done (although I’m not sure I’m over my Steve Hutchinson transition tag PTSD)

    • lil’stink says:

      I mean, I’d like all of them back at the right price. But until we know what the cap will be for next year I’d be surprised to see an extension for any of these guys.

      If it weren’t for his injury history Carson is the one guy I could see PCJS wanting back the most. I know RB’s are viewed as being replaceable but I think CC might be the most difficult of these 4 guys to replace. Had we drafted Chubb instead of Penny it would have put us in such a better position this off-season.

      I’d like to see KJ retire a Seahawk, but with Brooks looking like he’s coming along I’m not sure how his future here plays out.

      Griffen seems like the quintessential “he’ll definitely be overpaid” sort of guy. Chasing after him seems like a bad idea.

      Pocic has been fine but I doubt he will be at the top of the priority list. I could see him staying or leaving depending on his market. Hopefully he stays at a reasonable rate, as his departure would just create another need without a viable replacement on the roster.

      With only 34 players under contract and just 5 draft picks it could make for an interesting offseason.

    • cha says:

      1.Carson
      1a.Wright

      (big, big gap)

      3.Griffin
      4.Pocic

      • Hoggs41 says:

        Will be interesting to watch these four. I think Carson, Wright and Pocic could all be around $6m a year where Griffin could be double that. I think all of them besides Pocic make it to free agency and Pocic will be the first to sign.

  16. Chase says:

    Why do you think Ja’maar Chase will go before Devonta Smith?

  17. charlietheunicorn says:

    Congrats

    If you had Alvin Kamara in your FF Playoff Championship…. you won (already)!

    Another ringing endorsement for the Seahawks medical staff…

    Joe Fann
    @Joe_Fann
    Ken Norton said Quinton Dunbar “wasn’t 100%” since the day he arrived in Seattle. That’s not a great endorsement for Dunbar as he goes into free agency.

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      I just completely do not understand how they constantly have issues identifying injuries and then dealing with the injuries during re-hab. They do a decent job on rehab, but some guys never make it back….. and these guys/gals are the ones who sign off on draft-picks with injury concerns and it seems like they almost always whiff on the guys with major injury concerns.

      It also is maddening, Seattle is one the centers of the universe for medical research and development. Tremendous talent lies within 100 miles of Seahawks HQ…. tap the talent.

      Maybe this is just my perception, but I would have less faith in their evaluation on a guy with injury history within the upcoming draft. I guess I just don’t know what to think about guys with medical concerns….. and if you sing a guy to a contract, knowing he isn’t right and may not last the season…. then that is even worse. (Clowney sort of falls into the camp, imagine paying 15M for him, then his knee gave out 2/3 of the way through the season)

    • Big Mike says:

      Darrell Taylor doesn’t like this post.

    • Scot04 says:

      If he wasn’t 100% when he got here they should have called off the trade. I guess we just like to give picks for players unready to play. They need an overhaul in their team that does the medical evaluations.

  19. Looks like tomorow we are playing for home field advantage vs Ramsin two weeks.

    • If DET somehow beat TB today then it will be :

      1. vsLAR, @NO
      2. @WFT, @GB

      What would you choose? I will take 2.

      • charlietheunicorn says:

        SEA #3 vs TAM #6
        and
        WST #4 vs LA R #5
        and
        NO #2 vs #7 AZ #7

        Would be the best scenario. AZ could give the Saints fits….. Brees isn’t fully recovered.
        Washington can chew up Goff and he might fold the tent.
        Tampa is a bit of a fraud to me, very uneven sometimes. Make them travel and get out of the heat…. could freeze the Bucs in SEA.

        Every single team in the NFC has flaws, unlike Chiefs and Bills who look legit on fire right now.

      • Rob Staton says:

        I’ll only pick GB on the road after Seattle under Carroll plays a game at Lambeau and doesn’t s**t the bed.

        • Big Mike says:

          And I can only pick a game vs. the Rams home or away when Carroll proves he isn’t McVay’s bitch. Hasn’t happened so far.
          To me the only path to the Super Bowl at this point in time involves not playing the Rams and not playing in GB. Maybe Sunday will change my mind about that first part.

        • BruceN says:

          Last year in the playoffs we gave GB all it could handle with no RBs, no TEs, Flowers getting picked apart by Rodgers and Amadi as a rookie covering Adams in the end. Seattle plays well on the big stage (and Sadly plays down to it’s lesser opponent) and for once we are approaching the post season fairly healthy. Flowers is replaced (upgraded) by Reed and Amadi is a better player now. We also added Dunlap (same or an upgrade over Clowney) and Adams. My main concern is game planning on both side of the ball.

          • Rob Staton says:

            That’s not how I remember the game last season.

            We got into a massive hole, Wilson did his usual magic trick to make it close, but alas it was all for nothing

            • BruceN says:

              Yes, notorious for starting slow, we did fall behind 21-3 at the half before losing a close game at 28-23. Should be noted we were playing with Lynch and Turbin who were signed off the street. Plus Rodgers and Adams feasted on Flowers for 160 yards and 2 TDs. None of those factors are in play now. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not suggesting we are a much better team. But we’ll have a decent chance.

  20. charlietheunicorn says:

    I was just looking at the numbers for Punter Michael Dickson.
    Legit shot he could get an ALLPRO nod.

    Currently, very good net (#4), average (#2) and 27 punts inside the 20 (#1).

    Jags learning from the Jets…

    Going with the QB that gives them the best chance to LOSE.

    Saturday Press Conf w PC

    [john boyle] Every week championship opp? Why focus on that, establish normalcy? “Exactly. Mentality and approach. Time comes you know what to expect. Trust what you’ve been doing play the way you’re capable.”

    [Gregg] Lack of fans, generate own energy, reinforce this week? “Biggest area of adj in the process. Take responsibly for all the energy and juice. Just as important as before. Offense cheering for D, D cheering for Offense.”

    [joe fann] Olsen and Flowers up? “Greg come up, Mone come up.”
    [joe] No Flowers? “no”

    [bob condotta] Jarran Reed oK? “Practiced he’s fine. Bruised sternum.”
    [bob] Ram offense, better handle more you see it? “We’ll show ya this weekend. Very good offense, a lot of diversity, do a great job.”

    [Curtis crab] Iupati health? Simmons job? “Dealing with stingers, game last week. Wait and see on that one. Bothering him more acute this week. Simmons great job, big physical kid, played a lot of FB for us. Played against Rams in the past. Looking forward to him playing if that’s the way it goes.”

    [tim booth] Biggest skill you’ve had to pick up as a coach in pandemic? “Carrying enthusiasm at stadium. Other side is ongoing emphasis on making right decisions, thought patterns without falling prey to COVID. Constant messaging that’s never been there before. Successful to point. Taken up a lot of air time, it really has.”

    [art thiel] Surprised NFL hasn’t had to adj late/playoff schedule due to COVID? “Example of hockey and basketball, going into bubbles. Could we maintain with 4x as many players. Formula that can be successful. Found we have a formula for staying away from COVID. We can control the variables around us. Taken adv of it. Pretty darn successful for the league. Proud of where we are.”

      Bit of a waste of time aside from one injury line.

      Would it kill someone to ask Pete about his record vs the Rams? Should be an interesting answer.

      • Kenny Sloth says:

        “They’ve had some good squads that’s a good coaching staff Sean has down there. We just didnt get the job done”

        But the questions need to be raised.

  24. GoHawksDani says:

    I like that you’re thinking outside the box but I see almost zero chance they’re picking Landon.
    They have huge needs everywhere. They like Pocic and also…mmm…forget the guy’s name who popped in for the Rams game 😀 both played really well this year. And I think they’ll be very risk averse after Taylor. Imagine the Taylor pick and a risky pick health-wise. If it wouldn’t work out JS would pretty much risk his job in a major way.
    If an elite CB or DE drops because of health concerns they might…if someone drops because character concerns or might be a bit rough technique-wise they could pull the trigger. They had positive experiences with those. But they had a ton of bad luck with injuries for early picks (McDowell, Taylor, Penny). Most of these are bad luck but as they usually err on the safe side especially after they get burnt I really doubt they can risk it.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Don’t assume they’ll be able to retain Pocic

      • Scot04 says:

        No one saw us taking a LB with our 1st pick either. Then as a team with a ton of safety depth trade for Adams. In regards to Landon, if he didn’t have the injury issue he’d likely be late 1st round. You need to watch the guy play.
        Before they do anything they need to know what they are doing with Adams. Either extend him or trade him. Would love for them to have most things set up before the draft so we can just go BPA.

  25. cha says:

    https://www.seahawks.com/news/seahawks-activate-te-greg-olsen-dt-bryan-mone-off-injured-reserve

    Olsen and Mone activated.

    Penny Hart will be the practice squad elevation this week.

  26. Mick says:

    I wonder how many teams in need of RB would take a chance on Carson’s health in a year when so many other options are available in free agency. But I wouldn’t want to see him in the ugly SF jersey just cause we didn’t estimate right, so I’d rather tag him.

    KJ I’d love to see him stay on a lower salary. Maybe we can also keep Pocic, unless he really wants to go.

    With Shaq I’m not sure, very likely Dunbar will also leave us, so losing two CBs would be a bit tough. I’d even consider going CB with the first pick of the draft, but I’m not sure what’s still available when we pick.

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      They have some options. Try to get/retain DJ Reed as one fo the outside CBs, Neal also looks good when he gets on the field and Udo Amadi have played well in the 3rd CB/3rd Safety role, which leaves only the opposite CB spot…. I would prefer an in-house solution. Stephens, Thorpe, Blair or Flowers? Not sure if they give what you need…. Dunbar has too many injury concerns to be viable imo. I know Rob would love for Sherman to return, but he also has had a rash of injuries (2017-2020) the last few years… and if you are spending limited FA bucks on him, might not be the right move.

  27. charlietheunicorn says:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yItpoZkVSCs

    Interesting breakdown on how Seattle has been employing Adams to create sacks this season. Briefly touches on how they have changed the defensive philosophy from 4 man pressure scheme to a blitz heavy scheme…. and how teams have tried to neutralize it… specifically the fire blitzes mentioned in the video. It also explains communication has been the biggest issue in the explosive plays given up by Seattle in the passing game…

  28. Mark says:

    Rob, what are your thoughts on Kayvon Thibodeaux out of Oregon? Could he be a target for the Seahawks in 2022 or 2023?

  29. cha says:

    I said last year that Robert Saleh was getting a lot of HC heat solely off the backs of a ton of high draft picks.

    I was wrong. He’s been great this year with all that talent on IR.

  30. Rob Staton says:

    The Cardinals are bang average

    • OP_Chillin says:

      Indeed. And this Niners team is going to be a tough out in Week 17 the way the Hawks have been playing.

      • Rob Staton says:

        Arizona has played this game like they can’t be arsed though. Low energy, filled with mistakes.

        Hopefully Seattle takes care of business.

        • OP_Chillin says:

          Good point. Also the cards run D is terrible and Hawks is very good which can force the niners out of their comfort zone. But man if Beathard lights us up that will just feel terrible, even if a W.

    • cha says:

  31. Kenny Sloth says:

  32. Paul Cook says:

    The Cards dump an important game and not looking good at all in doing so.

    On a side note. The Vikings defense yesterday reminded me of the Hawks defense the first two thirds of the season. I wanted the Vikes to win for obvious reasons, but I finally threw up my arms and said Eff It! They are incapable of stopping the Saints offense.

  33. charlietheunicorn says:

    The Cardinals really damaged their playoff chances now….. Bears nipping at their feet.

    • charlietheunicorn says:

      oh. Murray got dinged up on final drive as well. Not good at all for them.

        That hit didn’t look too bad. I think he was more distraught about pi$&@ing their playoff hopes away.

        • Kenny Sloth says:

          Hey, more incentive for the Bears to beat the Packers so we can take the 1 seed.

          • BruceN says:

            Good point. Forgot about that. And the win secures the Niners a lower pick. All around a good outcome.

        • charlietheunicorn says:

          Their star WR and LB both went out with injuries during the game and didn’t return according to reports (I didn’t watch it)… so they could really be hitting rock bottom going into week #17.

          • BruceN says:

            They’ve been decimated all season but their D and Saleh confused and harassed Murray all game. This week Kittle insisted he wanted to play and next week JimmyG is coming back. At 6-9 they have no quit in them. So we can’t take week 17 game for granted.

    Wait, what? I have questions.

    Tom Pelissero
    @TomPelissero
    ·35m

    #Seahawks DT Damon “Snacks” Harrison asked for his release after learning he’d be inactive today against the #Rams, and the team plans to grant it next week, per sources. Seattle loves Snacks and hopes he has a change of heart, but seems his mind is made up. He’d go on waivers.

    • Rob Staton says:

      Meh. Haven’t even noticed him TBH.

      Mone was better.

      • Sea Mode says:

        Right, just weird to me after how he reportedly turned down other teams at various points this season to stay with us, and him being a veteran and knowing we will be in the playoffs.

        • Rob Staton says:

          I can see his point though. This might be it for him. He doesn’t want to finish his career as a healthy scratch.

          • Tony says:

            You would think he would be into being on a playoff team and getting paid in playoffs with a chance for a ring. But i guess ego prevails over all.

    • Scot04 says:

      Seems like u would want as many healthy big bodies ready going into the playoffs. If Mone or Ford gets hurt our depth goes down quickly with Snacks gone. He definitely took up space and kept wags and Kj a little cleaner. A little surprising to me this late. Especially now he’s pretty much in game shape. I was looking forward to a good rotation to keep them healthy for playoffs.

      • clbradley17 says:

        Agree 100% Scot04. The only part I didn’t like was airing his dirty laundry on Twitter or wherever for all to see. But he stayed here even when others tried to poach him and is getting paid 1/10th the price he’s been making the last decade, and now that he’s put in months of work to get in shape and finally playing better, they scratch him and play our 5th/6th string practice squad WR Penny Hart instead? He gave up being at home with his new baby, risking Covid when a lot of other big OL and DL didn’t this year and wants to play for the Seahawks more than any other team, but we’re showing by the scratch it’s not a 2 way street. He’s been playing better plugging the middle and even forced a fumble recently, now we’re throwing him out like the trash. Who wouldn’t want to get a chance with another team that wants him after all he’s done to stay here and play?

  39. Trevor says:

    My Sunday wish list.

    -Hawks feature Carson and get him rolling heading into playoffs
    -Russ starts to look like Russ from weeks 1-6 not the Russ from the last 9 weeks.
    -Defense shows it can defend the edges against the Rams and stop the run
    -DK wins a matchup with Ramsey
    *Most importantly the Hawks win and Derrick Henry runs for 200yds as the Titans beat the snot out of a soft Packers team.

    • TomLPDX says:

      I have a feeling the Packers are going to get run over by the Titans.

      We definitely need the cooking Russ today if we want to win. Here’s hoping for 5 TDs!

      • Hoggs41 says:

        The interesting thing for us is the Titans game means nothing for us. Win or lose we need the Bears to beat the Packers or we cant catch them.

      • Lewis says:

        If an efficient 250 yards with 3 TDs and no ints, supported by a strong run game qualifies as “cooking”, sign me up. otherwise, no thanks.

  40. Rob Staton says:

    This is 2020 in a nutshell.

    Biggest game of the season in a few hours and we have to deal with Snacks Harrison tweeting away about how he wants to leave because he’s a healthy scratch today.

    Social media.

    Can honestly say if I was a GM I would have a grade for whether or not players bother with twitter or Instagram or Tiktok etc.

    • mantis says:

      The one thing the hawks have this year going into the playoffs is health and depth, but now have lost dunbar, gordon and snacks so the depth is getting thin, yuck!

      • clbradley17 says:

        Hate that the players air their feelings and grievences on social media too. But the reason he’s leaving is because after he came out of semi-retirement and took weeks to get in shape, turned down other teams, is finally looking better and pushing the pocket and forcing fumbles, we scratch him in favor of a former UFA in the biggest game of the year so far. We can’t rotate him and scratch Penny Hart or anyone else? Especially with Reed partially injured and Mone coming off an injury? Thanks Pete or whoever’s stupid decision this is.

    • BruceN says:

      Agree with you. I still remember Antonio Brown secretly streaming Tomlin’s locker room talk on FB.

      Is Mone that much of an improvement over Snacks? He has had a good couple of games after getting in shape. I would hate to lose him to GB, giving them a fresh healthy body at the end of the season.

    • Mike says:

      Honestly who cares that he wants to be released. It’s really a non story that people make a big deal out of.

      He’s a pretty average run stuffer at this point in his career and then has to go on social media and be super dramatic about it. There is such a lack of self awareness.

      • cha says:

        Well let’s not get carried away. Nothing “super dramatic” here.

        Super dramatic is Antonio Brown posting a private phone call with Gruden, and then posting himself dancing in his backyard in glee when he found out he’d been released from the Raiders.

        • Mike says:

          True. I don’t think anyone compares to the craziness that is Antonio brown.

          I just think people talk about snacks a lot and make a big deal about him when he is an aging rotational run stuffer.

    • Big Mike says:

      Agee 100% Rob. You wanna play on social media or do you wanna play winning football?

      • clbradley17 says:

        How’s he going to PLAY winning football when he’s not even in the game and a healthy scratch? We’re treating him like injured rookie Collier last year, but he’s healthy and improving, almost like he was just a placeholder for Mone and not a contributor at all. Don’t blame him for being upset, just hope as has been reported, that he doesn’t play a factor in stuffing Carson etc. for Green Bay, Tampa Bay or some other team we play in 2-3 weeks. What if Reed, Mone or Poona are hurt or tweaked as Pete says, early in the game? Was it really more important to get a 5th or 6th string WR Penny Hart up from the practice squad into the game?

  41. Paul Cook says:

    Props to the NFL for giving us pretty much a full football season so far.

    I was a little surprised hearing that Harrison was made a healthy scratch. I liked the depth they were building up on the line with some players returning from injury. You never know what can happen the next few games injury-wise.

    Psyched for this game. We can win the division for the first time since 2016. That would be a helluva accomplishment given the disappointing off-season and this up and down season.

    What I’m thinking now…

    –Impose our will with the ground game as much as we can…
    –I like screen passes and the TE’s getting involved (they usually get pressure on RW)
    –PRESSURE GOTH!

    Let’s get this win.

    • cha says:

      PRESSURE GOTH!

      This made me LOL. The Rams’ QB wearing black eye shadow and listening to Joy Division.

  42. Big Mike says:

    I see the graphic that TJ Watt has the most QB pressures in the NFL, then I watch him strip sack Rivers and turn the game around and I just get sad for what could have been. 🙁

    • clbradley17 says:

      I remember a LOT of people here pounding the table for Watt after his great season at Wisconsin and excelling at the combine. With the 2-3 trade downs before taking the Calais Campbell of the future in DT Malik McDowell, we could have drafted either Watt or Pro Bowl RT Ramczyk of NO, also from Wisconsin.

  43. cha says:

    https://overthecap.com/new-orleans-saints-cap-maneuverings-for-2021/

    So there’s one roadmap for how the Saints can get out of the cap mess they’re in.

    Feels like the piece is a bit rosy in its conclusion though in saying that the Saints aren’t in rough shape:

    The proposed moves get them to zero – no room for paying their draft picks and no room to retain any free agents.

    As well:

    -getting rid of their two top CBs
    -lots of OL and DL depth gutted
    -swapping Brees for Hill isn’t an upgrade – and they extend Hill to lower their cap, tying themselves to him for the foreseeable future
    -the proposed restructure guys are all in their late 20’s or 30’s. It’s not a winning proposition to assume all of those restructures will be productive at age 33-35 to the tune of a $20m/year cap number.

    It’s not gonna be pretty.

    • Tony says:

      I believe you gotta trade Micheal thomas and some other pieces. But no matter what they do, they are in teardown territory.

    • Lewis says:

      The league is expected to go to 17 games next year and there’s a new tv contract to be negotiated. In addition, the player revenue share is going to increase, so the cap is likely going to be a bit higher than currently expected.

    The NFL is expected to add a 17th game to the regular season in 2021, sources say. A look at how the dramatic move will change the landscape of the season, along with what it means for the salary cap.

    The story from me and @TomPelissero:

    https://t.co/ShD7J4HkCG?amp=1

    • clbradley17 says:

      Hopefully between this and I heard the NFL is also signing new multi-billion $ TV contracts in the offseason, the salary cap will go up and not stay the same as been reported in recent months.

    • Paul Cook says:

      I suppose that means we’re down to like a 2 game preseason then, right? Do we get another bye week?

    • Scot04 says:

      I hope they keep they expanded practice squads and new rules include with it. Like the protection and eligibility to be called up twicr before waivers. I thought it’s been a plus for teams and players

      • clbradley17 says:

        And the new IR rules where they can place several players on IR without losing them for the season, only 3 weeks or so. The new IR and practice squad rules and bigger practice squads as Scot04 points out would be things to keep permanently.

        I’d be fine with just 2 pre-season games. With the vaccines next year, we should be able to do all the year round conditioning in 2021 so the players can stay in shape and we can medically test FAs and draftable players so there aren’t any big surprises like this year.

        Now if they can only make it so all players are active for game day. That would not only help in case of in-game injuries, but we wouldn’t be losing Snacks.

    Uh oh, 3rd and long

  90. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Nice play by Mayowa

  91. cha says:

    MUCH better!

  92. Big Mike says:

    Offense with field position yet again. Have done nothing with it so far.

  93. Kenny Sloth says:

    Jamal Adams is so freaking good at football.

    Literally one of the best all-around ball players I’ve ever seen.

  94. Matt says:

    We are 20 minutes away from being able to legally target DK for an offensive play. Very pumped.

  95. BoiseSeahawk says:

    When are we going to get smart and put someone other than our second best corner in to return punts? If Reed got hurt returning a punt for 5 yards… just not worth it.

  96. KD says:

    “Sir Caryl! Why did you order a cavalry charge at the start?”

    -Well, we knew it was going to be a siege, so we wanted to be aggressive from the start, and the Dothraki were very aggressive.

    “But sir, the Dothraki are all dead”

    -Yeah, that was an unfortunate setback but we’ve waived Dorn and Yara’s fleet and we’ll be calling up more Unsullied and Dothraki from the practice squad. They should be here by episode 5 or 6.

    “Sir Caryl, when the retreat was sounded, all of the Unsullied were killed trying to protect trebuchets. Why were the trebuchets and Unsullied outside of the wall to begin with?”

    -Well, during a siege, it’s really important to be aggressive, so we wanted to establish the cavalry early and come out strong. Like I said, We weren’t anticipating losing the Dothraki, the Unsullied and our artillery that early, but at the end it turned out to be a good battle and we managed to come out on top. I also want to shout out to Jon who did an outstanding job yelling at the enemy dragon. He hasn’t had much of a role this season but I really think his yelling at the dragon helped turn the tide. Outstanding job.

    “Sir, you had two dragons and an enemy that instantly dies when they come in contact with fire. Why didn’t you just wait for the main force to arrive and burn them all?”

    -Well we wanted to make sure that the dragons were limited in action because we’ll be needing both of them for episode 5, and we also didn’t want to tip our hand too early because we were confident in the Dothraki….just didn’t work out as anticipated.

  97. Kenny Sloth says:

    Man is this offense waking tf up? Lets put some points up

  98. TomLPDX says:

    Alright, moving the sticks. c’mon Seattle…

  99. Sea Mode says:

    Metcalf and Carson. That’s what we want some more of!

  100. Sea Mode says:

    Great pass pro!

  101. Kenny Sloth says:

    Jalen Hurts has a really special mentality

  102. James Kupihea says:

    The problem here, is they’re not establishing David Moore.

  103. Matt says:

    So…are we officially worried about RW yet? He looks washed. Sad.

  104. OP_Chillin says:

    Russ with a great play on that 3rd down showing comfort in the pocket. Then a wide open miss, then drops his head and runs straight into a sack. Sigh.

  105. Mick says:

    Myers for MVP 🙂

  106. cha says:

    They’re playing the Rams game. Let’s do 5 step drops and see who’s open.

    They just can’t do that.

  107. Kenny Sloth says:

    Tie Ball Game!!!!

    Lets get a turnover

  108. Big Mike says:

    That is what happens when the quarterback is sacked constantly and begins to see ghosts he throws the ball too quickly

    Not that there shouldn’t have been a penalty because there should have

  109. pdway says:

    shouldve been an illegal contact call on that hit on Hollister. looked like it slowed him enough to miss that TD throw.

  110. Tony says:

    Not sure how to fix rw. This stretch from game 4 to now is maddening. Would love a top tier te. Maybe in the draf….oh yeah, nevermind.

  111. Kenny Sloth says:

    Man, I am FIRED UP for this defense

  112. Pran says:

    Hate to see Goff play better than Elite MVP Russ…

  113. Rob Staton says:

    It’s 3-3 but Seattle feels scratchy and unsettled and the Rams seem to have some fluidity and control.

  114. Rob Staton says:

    Jamal Adams can’t catch to save his life

  115. spartacus says:

    Rob Gronkowski just felt some phantom pain in his chest

  116. TomLPDX says:

    Adams has lead hands

  117. Kenny Sloth says:

    What an athletic play by Adams.

  118. cha says:

    How do you play a team 2x a year, and you’re still constantly repositioning and yelling at each other on defense right up to the snap?

  119. Sea Mode says:

    Lol, Adams is a meme at this point…

  120. Tony says:

    Adams drops pick. Talks like he returned it to house.

  121. Sea Mode says:

    3rd and long, their favorite down…

  122. Mick says:

    Luckily Goff isn’t in much better form than RW.

  123. Blitzy the Clown says:

    How was that not holding by whoever was blocking Dunlap?

    • OP_Chillin says:

      They ain’t calling holding much at all this year. Plus you could find holding on 10x more snaps than get called, even “egregious” holding.

    • Tony says:

      At this point, holding is a crapshoot call. Based on the whim feeling of wanting to effect the game in some way. Like proving to your boss youre working by randomly sweeping an area to fill in some time before closing.

  124. Kenny Sloth says:

    Bahahha Goff gonna Goff

  125. Rob Staton says:

    The good news is it’s only 6-3.

    Because this has not been a good first half at all

    • Sea Mode says:

      Correct. But which coaching staff would I put my money on to adjust first? I’d rather not say…

    • Tony says:

      My fear is losing control and going down 10 or more based on offense ineptitude. Then rams tee off on russ down the stretch. Basically replaying the first game vs the rams. Where we are not out of it by score, but by the utter feeling that theres no way seattle can overcome this huge 7 point déficit.

  126. cha says:

    Bob Condotta
    @bcondotta
    Now Adams heads into Seahawks locker room. May be trying to figure out best way to wrap fingers or having them looked at more.
    2:23 PM · Dec 27, 2020

  127. Big Mike says:

    Offense is shit yet again

  128. Rob Staton says:

    Offense playing like absolute shite again

    • cha says:

      That was a wildly bad throw by RW.

      What happened to the “Best deep ball in the NFL” ?

      He’s just off. Something is wrong.

    • Rokas says:

      It’s really a joke. Seems that defense is becoming a lesser liability than the offense.

  129. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Tell me again nothing’s wrong with Wilson 🙄

  130. Matt says:

    I repeat…it’s time to legitimately worry about RW.

  131. Big Mike says:

    Pass to DK over wrong shoulder

  132. Volume12 says:

    Seattle is leaving too many plays on the field. A lot to be had so far.

  133. Sea Mode says:

    Dickson is badass…

  134. Pran says:

    That’s a bad throw on that deep shot. This offense has no rhythm and no plan. Pete and Russ sucks. Just pound the damn ball and make Russ rush a few times…at least we can kill the clock.

  135. pdway says:

    hawks D doing as well as we could possibly hope for – esp given the way they were earlier this year.

    its crazy how shaky our offense looks now – and this current version of #3 doesnt seem to have any answers .

  136. Bmseattle says:

    Has our offense been below average more often than good over the course of the season?
    Its difficult to argue that the first 5 games arent the aberration, at this point.

  137. Mike says:

    Might be a hot take but kj Wright is the best player on the defense

  138. Big Mike says:

    Completely agree

  139. Kenny Sloth says:

    Top 5 D in the last 6 weeks? What a strange team.

    Pete is a monster of a coach

  140. OP_Chillin says:

    Tight coverage by adams!

  141. Big Mike says:

    Outstanding play by Adams there

  142. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Finally a decent coverage play by Adams

  143. Jordan E says:

    Adams is a really good player. But still not worth the 2 first rounders and a 3rd imo.

  144. Rob Staton says:

    Well done Ryan Neal 🤡

  145. Big Mike says:

    Very very bad penalty

  146. Volume12 says:

    Adams is something else. Been everywhere today. Elite in the box, elite blitzer, if they can get him halfway way there coverage wise? Whew

  147. Kenny Sloth says:

    PREZ

  148. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Dammit roughing the kicker

  149. Matt says:

    This f***ing team…

  150. OP_Chillin says:

    Bloody hell we just can’t have that!

    How dare Neal postpone the next 3 and out on offense!

  151. Dinosaw says:

    Fool…

  152. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Hope that penalty doesn’t loom large down the stretch

  153. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Brooks starting to pop here and there.

  154. James Kupihea says:

    why try to block that….AT ALL. The field position…

  155. Kenny Sloth says:

    KJ taking scalps

  156. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Generous spot

  157. Pran says:

    Let’s face it..Pete couldn’t put together one good game in all phases all season. Time to retire..

  158. Big Mike says:

    Why is it that Pete challenges when he shouldn’t and doesn’t when he should?

  159. pdway says:

    D is gonna wear down. you can feel it.

    on the field all half.

  160. Kenny Sloth says:

    Bobby yelling at somebody

  161. cha says:

    Wow! JARED GOOF

  162. Rob Staton says:

    The only thing worse than the Seahawks in this game is Jared Goff

  163. Blitzy the Clown says:

    There we go!

  164. Matt says:

    Goff and RW putting on some of the worst QB play I’ve seen in quite some time.

  165. Kenny Sloth says:

    Goff seahawks mvp

  166. spartacus says:

    needed that so bad

  167. Jordan E says:

    OK Quandre. Earning that PB nod this year

  168. Sea Mode says:

    Thank you, Goff!!!

  169. Volume12 says:

    Let’s gooooooo! They finally make 1 of those plays that have been there all game. O

  170. Denver Hawker says:

    Diggs showing up more as the season goes on. Great to see.

  171. Mick says:

    Yey Diggs. I’ve never seen such a clueless QB like Goff out of the pocket.

  172. Dinosaw says:

    If Donald and mcvay had a half decent qb they would be unstoppable..

  173. Henry Taylor says:

    Diggs is the master of having picks thrown right at him with no recievers in anywhere near.

  174. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I think Alton Robinson has a future

  175. Dinosaw says:

    Goff 🦃

  176. Tony says:

    Get carson going!

  177. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Yes please let’s get Carson rolling

  178. OP_Chillin says:

    Passing game is DEAD. It’s time to just RUN baby.

  179. Dinosaw says:

    Why does Russ not take what he’s given.dump off passes.grrh

  180. Big Mike says:

    Rams D is good but Hawks making them look like 75 stealers.

  181. downtownjewelrybryan says:

    holes are starting to open up and we stop giving it to our hammer

  182. James Kupihea says:

    They need to give Hyde the ball too. Chip away at these linebackers.

  183. Sea Mode says:

    So do you think it’s safe to say that, although we did not fix our pass rush this off-season, we did at least manage to improve our team speed on defense to match up with NFCW offenses?

    • James Kupihea says:

      It’d be nice to believe that, but most NFC offenses have been a steaming pile of hot garbage.

      Jimmy G – Hot Garbage
      Jared G – Hot Garbage you’re watching right now
      Kyler M – Playing better, just young. NOT GARBAGE.
      RusS – Hot Garbage you watch weekly.

  184. KennyBadger says:

    I’ve just been inducted into the WTF is wrong with Russ camp. WTF Russ.

  185. Bmseattle says:

    “Breaking news” everybody.
    Apparently, Pittsburgh has won the AFC north.
    I’m pretty sure I’m the first to see that…

  186. TomLPDX says:

    I HATE Troy Aikman

  187. Mick says:

    That throw to DK is exactly what we need to keep doing.

  188. Blitzy the Clown says:

    That sack was so unnecessary

  189. Big Mike says:

    Drop by DK might have cost us 7

  190. Bmseattle says:

    Were all the routes deep on third and short?!
    What the hell!?

  191. Rokas says:

    I really can’t look at Wilson anymore. He is becoming horrific.

    • TomLPDX says:

      Is he scared?

    • Tony says:

      Watching that 3rd down sack for the 344th time during rw career. All like the rest. Might as well be a replay.

      • Kenny Sloth says:

        Its not a new thing. Russ is the same as ever. It’s the turnovers that kill us

        • lil’stink says:

          This. Wilson has always had stretches of great play, but he also seems to have more struggles than the truly ‘elite’ QB’s. He is who he always has been.

          But the Rams defense is legit and has something to do with Wilson’s play.

      • Rokas says:

        These sacks for holding onto the ball forever. Angry Doug and Sherm would not be pleased with that 🙂

    • JC3 says:

      Wilson has not been clutch since Bills’ game. Is he broken?

  192. We just make it so hard on ourselves its pathetic. If I hear Pete say we’re optimistic we can fix things one more time ill lose my shit.

  193. OP_Chillin says:

    Okay so 3rd and 6 you have 2 receivers run vertical. Tight end runs vertical. RB checkdown is covered. How are we supposed to be successful with that? Pull the damn coverage apart with crossing routes, routes run to different levels of the same area of the field, etc.

  194. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Did the Rams launder their unis with a pink shirt and hot water?

  195. Jordan E says:

    LET RUSS COOK!!

  196. cha says:

    JARED GOOF

  197. Big Mike says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a K not named Justin Tucker this dialed in

    NO JINX!

  198. spartacus says:

    that was a goof

  199. Sea Mode says:

    Lol Goff again

  200. OP_Chillin says:

    This is a throwback Fisher-era game.

  201. Kenny Sloth says:

    45 second drill.

    Let Russ cook its a flash fry

  202. Dinosaw says:

    Has Aaron Donald ever been injured?

  203. James Kupihea says:

    Andy Dalton playing like a dang monster.

  204. Matt says:

    Great decision to scramble…man he legit sucks now.

    • Jordan E says:

      Like are we being harsh on Wilson? Yes… Is it justified? Yes… RW is paid alot alot of $$$. If he doesn’t step up his contract will really set this team back.

      • Kenny Sloth says:

        True. I think this might be the first time in his career that expectations are higher than his output. He’s almost always been punching up in this league

  205. James Cr. says:

    Does RW understand situational football? I don’t get what he is thinking sometimes.

  206. Chris says:

    At the start of the season no one would have predicted that our defense would be carrying our team.

    • Kenny Sloth says:

      I dont think anyone would’ve predicted 10-4 and tied w the Rams at this point

      • OP_Chillin says:

        Yes, but that has a lot to do with the Niners going to crap. Most predictions I saw had them repeating as div champs, Hawks right there, Cards up-and-coming, with the Rams as 3rd/4th.

        • Kenny Sloth says:

          Yeah been a strange season. I wouldnt have believed you if you said we’d be up 13-6 in the 3rd against LAR

  207. 12th chuck says:

    leave it to the hawks to drop a turd in dec. with a game at winning div. etc how did our o het so pathetic the plus side, hope we can muster a drive next half. cant believe they squandered the good field position all game

  208. Kenny Sloth says:

    Half time shower lets goooo Hawks

  209. Mike says:

    Let geno cook? 😂

    • BobbyK says:

      LMFAO!!!

    • BobbyK says:

      Sometimes I wonder if it’s possible it could be worse.

      I still love Wilson but he’s not Mahomes, Rodgers, etc. He says he wants to be the best of all-time, but there’s no way that’s possible (anymore). Especially playing for a team that had no draft picks in the next few years either.

  210. Sea Mode says:

    So, what should the 2nd half game plan be on offense? Feed Carson + quick throws?

  211. dragonhawk says:

    Russ’s goose is cooked

  212. Mick says:

    On the positive side, our D is matching the one of the Rams, which is top.

  213. Chris says:

    Seems like defenses have figured out how to defend lockett

    • Tony says:

      I think Ds figired out RW and our gameplan. And the result is lockett and dk having more struggles cuz RW is hesitating and missing reads/throws.

  214. Matt says:

    RW can’t even microwave a hot pocket right now.

  215. Chris says:

    I think they need to run the ball and feed dk the ball. Maybe try some more rollouts.

  216. Chris says:

    Schotty has had how many weeks to adjust to how defenses are playing us. Why hasn’t there been any improvements?

  217. Chris says:

    Definitely could be the answer.

  218. Matt says:

    The next turnover will determine the game.

    Both of these teams are doing nothing in the postseason.

  219. Rob Staton says:

    Feed David Moore, see.

    WR1

  220. OP_Chillin says:

    ESTABLISH THE MOORE

  221. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Moore has his one circus catch per game

  222. Matt says:

    RW with his first career sack.

  223. Henry Taylor says:

    Finally, establish D Moore, just like we’ve been asking!

  224. Kenny Sloth says:

    Ha! You were right SeaMode

  225. Rob Staton says:

    “wHo CoUlD tHeY sIgN tHo iN FA?”

    Leonard Floyd.

    • Kenny Sloth says:

      Well, it’s like you’ve said before, they put all their chips in the Clowney basket early and hung around too long

    • uptop says:

      I was a VERY big Leonard Floyd fan, that length wouldve been amazing at LEO.

  226. cha says:

    Much, much better. Get out of the pocket and make a play. Get those RW legs and improv going.

  227. Denver Hawker says:

    Love the play to Moore, hate the decision.

    I was going to ask why we suck at 3rd down, we have weapons and good o-line. Wilson missing high percentage conversions for going for big plays.

  228. Rob Staton says:

    Thank god for that

  229. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Savvy play by Wilson there to score

  230. Mick says:

    Yeah Russ come on, it was getting painful to watch…

  231. Kenny Sloth says:

    Finally a TD in this boring ass game

  232. Chris says:

    Much needed!

  233. Big Mike says:

    Now please no let down defense

  234. Dinosaw says:

    Come on defence don’t relax keep the foot on goffs throat.

  235. Sea Mode says:

    Huh, I grabbed a glass of whisky and things immediately got better. That’s definitive evidence: whisky makes everything better.

  236. Troy says:

    That was the first drive in a long time where Russ looked like himself.

  237. Lewis says:

    They start running bootleg plays or otherwise getting him on the run and suddenly Russ looks like a different quarterback. Hmmm…

  238. Tony says:

    Its like RW needs these big chunk plays. He seems to get in a groove when he hits a couple deep passes. Everything tends to click. But when you remove all deep shots. He panics and cant sustain drives. You get these long lulls in game. We need to fix the intermediate chain moving offense.

  239. Dinosaw says:

    FFS Suprise fucking suprise…

  240. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Ugly whiff by Griffin and Wagner

  241. Rohan Raman says:

    Who is God?

    A) A bearded man in the sky

    B) A force beyond comprehension

    C) Leonard Floyd against the Seahawks

  242. Mike says:

    The defense is going to give up a quick td aren’t they? Lol

  243. Dinosaw says:

    Come on ffs

  244. Big Mike says:

    Good job Joe the running back’s name is Henderson not Adams

  245. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I can’t believe Adams even caught Henderson from behind like that. It’s not like Henderson is slow.

  246. Bmseattle says:

    Ugh
    ..the ankle.is not meant to twist like that.😬

  247. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Fantastic play by Brooks

  248. Chris says:

    Jordyn brooks is getting better every week!

  249. Kenny Sloth says:

    MAKE EM EARN IT

  250. Rob Staton says:

    What is Pete doing????

    There was no clear recovery.

    A total waste of a challenge and timeout.

  251. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Not a good challenge. They aren’t going to award Seahawks the ball here.

  252. Mick says:

    Jordyn had 2 great plays. What is Pete challenging there?

  253. OP_Chillin says:

    Is there a secret camera angle available to PC? Because there’s no way in hell he’s winning that challenge otherwise.

  254. cha says:

    Boy I don’t know about this challenge. Gives the Rams a chance to regroup and get some momentum back after 3 straight stuffs.

  255. Big Mike says:

    How’s there ever been a worse had coach when it comes to challenges in the NFL?

  256. Rokas says:

    No matter what happens on 4th down, I am kind of proud of this defense today.

  257. downtownjewelrybryan says:

    the defense had the momentum

  258. Sea Mode says:

    1,2,3, drink

  259. Dinosaw says:

    Just giving mcvay more time to dial up a play.

  260. Denver Hawker says:

    Would Pete have called timeout there on 4th down to get a look at the play call? If so, why not challenge?

  261. Tony says:

    I think this is more pete wanting a timeout and just using a challenge for it.

  262. cha says:

    Wow! Take that momentum defense!

  263. Chris says:

    There’s brooks again!

  264. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Excellent stop! This defense is stepping up at the right time

  265. TomLPDX says:

    D-FENSE!

  266. Mick says:

    So proud of the defense!

  267. Big Mike says:

    99 yd drive time

  268. Sea Mode says:

    This defense, man!

  269. Trevor says:

    Monster stop. If this doesn’t help give the defense some momentum nothing will.

  270. James Kupihea says:

    Why does everything great, ride on the back of something stupid with this team. Either way, great stop.

  271. Sea Mode says:

    Can you imagine how loud the 12s would be on that play!

  272. Kenny Sloth says:

    Who else fired up

  273. Troy says:

    Brooks living up to his draft position, good stuff

  274. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Brilliant! 🙄🤦🏻‍♂️

  275. Rob Staton says:

    Three throws on your own goal line?

    24 throws
    14 runs

    Of course.

  276. OP_Chillin says:

    They double-team Sebastian-Joseph-Day and leave AD singled on Simmons

  277. Rob Staton says:

    That sky cam angle is TERRIBLE

    No idea what happened on that kick return

  278. Bmseattle says:

    How in the world did we not get that recovery?!

  279. Kenny Sloth says:

    WHO ELSE FIRED UP????

  280. Big Mike says:

    A recovery would’ve been gargantuan

  281. Tony says:

    Another missed opportunity. If only this team could limit mistakes and capitalize on these huge plays!

  282. Sea Mode says:

    Cody Barton special teams god

  283. Troy says:

    Russell Wilson is the #1 problem with this football team. He’s playing SCARED. Celebrity life = no toughness or swagger

    • Trevor says:

      I agree Russ is playing lien crap but I don’t think anyone can question his toughness. Come on man that guys has never even missed a practice despite the pounding he has taken over the years.

      • Tony says:

        Agreed. Dude is nails tough. Hes earned his stripes. He just needs to be better on reads and game management.

        • Troy says:

          I’ve seen “tough” Russ. There is no way at all I would describe his current play as tough. He’s playing scared and soft.

    • cha says:

      Schottenheimer is the problem today. No awareness. No humility.

  284. Trevor says:

    Will there be fans at playoff games?

  285. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Oh for crying out loud close them out on 3rd down

  286. Rob Staton says:

    10 runs for Carson in a game you are leading

    24 passes vs 12 runs (not including scrambles)

    Mostly this is down to their awful third down numbers

    But this isn’t Pete ball, at least not an effective version

  287. Mick says:

    Awesome Alton

  288. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I’m telling ya, Robinson is ok. Fairly savvy pass rusher as a raw rookie. Just needs more snaps.

  289. Kenny Sloth says:

    Has KJ been our best defender this year??

  290. James Kupihea says:

    KJ Continues to play like he’s five years younger.

  291. Mick says:

    Now a long drive and TD

  292. Kenny Sloth says:

    Jared Goff ur thumb is nasty yo

  293. Bmseattle says:

    Yes…as long as we avoid any 3rd down plays.

  294. Trevor says:

    Seems like all of Robinsons 4 sacks on the year have been at key times. As a 5th round rookie he seems like a quality long term rotational DE.

    • Sea Mode says:

      Props to him, but that was a total coverage sack. I want to see a pass rusher just flat out beat their man 1v1 sometime this season.

  295. Chris says:

    Its time to play pete ball!

  296. Henry Taylor says:

    Brooks, Lewis, Alton – we made at least 3 good picks this year.

  297. Sea Mode says:

    For all the crap we’ve given him (and well-deserved), respect to Goff there for toughing it out with the thumb injury. Ouch.

  298. Mitesh Shah says:

    Can we run the read option every play this drive

  299. Rob Staton says:

    Still not running the ball

  300. Trevor says:

    The offensive design and play selection has been god awful for 5-6 weeks now. More slants to Metcalf and north / south running with Carson would be a nice start.

  301. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Nice to see Penny get a carry

  302. Kenny Sloth says:

    Nice hesi by Penny in the hole to make that happen

  303. Rob Staton says:

    That is unacceptable by DK Metcalf

  304. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Poor refereeing. Blow that play dead before someone gets hurt unnecessarily and that phantom illegal motion call.

  305. Kenny Sloth says:

    Carson at FB? Ron Rivera is that you????

  306. cha says:

    Man what a ticky tack call on DK.

  307. James Kupihea says:

    hmmmm……..

  308. Trevor says:

    Those tricky tack bullshit penalties are what drives me nuts about the Seahawks and NFL in general. How did that have any impact what so ever on the play.

    • Rob Staton says:

      It’s not ticky tacky. He wasn’t set. He jogged over there and wasn’t ready. Jalen Ramsey spotted it right away and pointed at him. Awful from DK and cost them a drive.

  309. Chris says:

    Michael Dickson might be our best weapon!

  310. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Absent a turnover, the team that can put together one more sustained scoring drive will win this.

  311. Rokas says:

    Is there any team in the league that looks dumber playing against the Rams than us? I bet there is not.

  312. downtownjewelrybryan says:

    wow…just get the first down penny.

  313. Kenny Sloth says:

    What a punt

  314. Mick says:

    Dickson again with a great punt. But it’s worrying we can’t get a couple of actions together.

  315. Bmseattle says:

    Calls like that leave me thinking very dark thoughts.

  316. TheOtherJordan says:

    DK has cost his team a TD by celebrating before he crossed the goal line and now a first down at a critical moment in the game where his team can clinch his division. Absolutely inexcusable lazy, mental lapses.

    • Matt says:

      His demeanor has been terrible lately. Can’t help but think the dysfunction on offense is getting to him. *Not making excuses.

  317. cha says:

    If I see one of our DBs get wiped out by a WR block again…

  318. Rob Staton says:

    Shaquill Griffin.

    FFS.

  319. Sea Mode says:

    Their QB is hurt. Don’t let them run it on us!

  320. cha says:

    Poona Ford making the tackle 20 yards downfield.

  321. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Inexcusable blown coverage/tackle by Griffin

  322. Big Mike says:

    You simply do not make a call like that that is so ticky tack in a game this big

  323. Chris says:

    Shaq griffin is such a soft player.

  324. Robbie says:

    Shaq has been getting eaten up all day

    • OP_Chillin says:

      Yup. He has games where he completely shuts down poor competition and then has poor games against good opponents. Not good enough for CB1 money.

  325. Rob Staton says:

    Jalen Ramsey telling Goff what to do there isn’t really a site I’d want to see if I was Sean McVay.

  326. Vanhawksfan says:

    The defensive backfield is holding up the best i’ve seen all season.

  327. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Nice play by Reed and at a great time. But I’ve seen enough of Rasheem Green. Pure looks like Tarzan/plays like Jane. What a disappointing prospect he turned out to be.

  328. TomLPDX says:

    I HATE Troy Aikman…

  329. Chris says:

    Credit to our defense! They came to play today!

  330. cha says:

    RUN THE BALL YOU MORONS

  331. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Now that was a nifty play action pass to Lockett. More of that please.

  332. Trevor says:

    North South runs with Carson instead of East West. Finally!

  333. Blitzy the Clown says:

    And to think they could’ve been running Carson up the middle all game.

  334. Kenny Sloth says:

    Stuff it down they throats

  335. Big Mike says:

    Now that’s the russ we need to see

  336. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I’m liking this drive

  337. TomLPDX says:

    Yay Tyler!!!

  338. Trevor says:

    Since DJ Reed became a starter the secondary is so much better.

  339. Kenny Sloth says:

    DK drawing the double team

  340. cha says:

    Sure, just keep running out of bounds guys.

  341. Sea Mode says:

    Come on, don’t let this drive stall here!

  342. Troy says:

    If you woulda told me after the first 8 games our defense would be the savior of our season, I would have thought you were mad. 2020 folks

  343. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Rams defense so good at not losing contain. They cover the LOS in transition really well.

    DK forcing the first down!

  344. Matt says:

    We are gonna pull this off but I still can’t help but see a team that will have a quick playoff appearance and be done.

    • Rokas says:

      If we had the same offense as in the 1st half of the season, and this defense, I’d say we could be just fine.

  345. Sea Mode says:

    Let’s go! DK!

  346. OP_Chillin says:

    Offense starts rolling and clock managment issues rear their disfigured head. SMH

  347. Rob Staton says:

    This has been a quality drive so far

  348. Mick says:

    Get the TD here and game over.

  349. Blitzy the Clown says:

    I hope DK didn’t get a stinger on that 3rd down conversion. He came down awkward on his head.

  350. Sea Mode says:

    It’s Lockett time IMO.

  351. Trevor says:

    A first down here would be enormous.

  352. downtownjewelrybryan says:

    are we playing for 3???

  353. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Play action to the TE

  354. cha says:

    Hollister! Gorgeous touch by RW!

  355. TomLPDX says:

    WooooHoooooo!

  356. Rokas says:

    Eat S***, Rams

  357. Trevor says:

    Amazing how much better the offense looks when they run the ball.

  358. James Kupihea says:

    Okay, all the past doesn’t matter. We need Russ to be great for 2:56.

  359. Sea Mode says:

    Let’s gooooooooooo!!!!!

  360. Robbie says:

    Let’s GOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

  361. Chris says:

    Now thats big boy football!!!!!

  362. Troy says:

    IS THAT A DIVISION TITLE I’M SMELLING!?!?!?!? WOOOOHOOOO

  363. Sea Mode says:

    Was that basically the same play we missed the TD on earlier due to the defensive holding?

  364. Trevor says:

    This win has to be a confidence booster against the Rams if nothing else,

  365. Kenny Sloth says:

    Can I get fired up again?

    That route by Hollister

  366. Tony says:

    Pleasantly surprised that we are 2 mins from division title!

  367. Gohawks5151 says:

    Dunlap the closer incoming…

  368. BobbyK says:

    Come on, defense. End this. Click, clock, tick!

  369. James Kupihea says:

    Close it out defense.

  370. Chris says:

    Just make them earn it.

  371. Tony says:

    D finish this game out!

  372. Kenny Sloth says:

    What a statement win by this Defense

    • Matt says:

      I’m still hesitant…Goff is terrible. Great performance…but we haven’t seen it against a good offense, yet.

  373. cha says:

    WAAAA!!!!

    What a goof by Reynolds

  374. Trevor says:

    Who would have imagined after the Janikowski / Ryan fiasco year that the Hawks would have the best kicking duo in the league.

  375. Blitzy the Clown says:

    hahahaha!

  376. Mick says:

    Rams can’t be real with that!

  377. Blitzy the Clown says:

    BOOOOOOOOOOO!

  378. Bmseattle says:

    Is the clock supposed to stop on that offensive penalty?

  379. Trevor says:

    That Rams offense really missed Cam Akers today.

  380. Henry Taylor says:

    No fun league!

  381. Kenny Sloth says:

    No Fun League

  382. downtownjewelrybryan says:

    where you at dunlap…need a finishing sack

  383. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Man this Seahawks defense just showing up

  384. Trevor says:

    I have been critical of this defense all year but they played a quality game today. Hopefully a launching pad into the playoffs. The additions of DJ Reed and Dunlap have been huge.

  385. Big W says:

    Seahawks looking like Super Bowl contenders.

  386. TomLPDX says:

    Wow, what a maddening, frustrating, fun game (once I knew we were going to win! 😉 )

  387. Mick says:

    It would be the biggest win of the year.

  388. Big Mike says:

    One more play

  389. Tony says:

    So when dk drops ball before entering endzone against dallas is giving himself up then right?! Cuz intention is he gave up on play? I get the reynolds call, but thats a bonehead play that is not the intent of the rule. He wasnt giving him self up to avoid a hit.

  390. TomLPDX says:

    Our D! Great game defense!

  391. uptop says:

    pass rush is what puts games away, hopefully they keep swarming

  392. Chris says:

    Ken norton deserves a ton of credit for turning this defense around.

    • Sea Mode says:

      I want to see us go toe to toe with a good offense without a backup/crippled QB and a 3rd string RB before I say that.

  393. Sea Mode says:

    Good to see Jarran Reed back out there. Must have just got the wind knocked out of him.

  394. Blitzy the Clown says:

    Finally a convincing win over the Rams. By gar it’s been a while

  395. downtownjewelrybryan says:

    no fans but the most important 12 was there today…PGA

    we are NFC CHAMPIONS once again!

  396. TomLPDX says:

    Now it is all love from Toy and Joe for Seattle. Assholes!

  397. Big Mike says:

    That last drive was a championship drive

  398. cha says:

    NFC WEST CHAMPS 2020!

  399. Sea Mode says:

    Why aren’t we just kneeling?

  400. Blitzy the Clown says:

    NFC West Division Champions!!!

    GO HAWKS!!

  401. Mick says:

    That was the Christmas present for the 12s. Great win, hope more to come in playoffs.

  402. Gohawks5151 says:

    The division champs are back!!!!

  403. AlaskaHawk says:

    This is a real confidence builder. Seahawks throw off their Rams jinx and win the NFC West. Go Hawks!

  404. Denver Hawker says:

    Defense winning these games lately, gotta credit Dunlap and DJ Reed for the improvements. Seem to allow the other guys to play their roles, and less confusion in the secondary. Adams is good, but his place in the D still just seems awkward.

    • Sea Mode says:

      Well, not blitzing him on 75% of the snaps is a good start for sure!

    • pdway says:

      I love having him out there – yes, he cost too much, and yes, he may not be worth the contract we are going to have to pay to retain him – I accept all of that – – but in the moment, for the rest of this season, I’m just enjoying seeing a guy flying around like he does. Love the way he bangs into the bitz pick-ups, love how he’s always slapping every teammates hand, love his speed in pursuit.

  405. charlietheunicorn says:

    Sexy defense, loved the energy and the heart they showed during 3rd and 4th quarter.

  406. James Kupihea says:

    BTW, officially…GO TITANS!

  407. Denver Hawker says:

    Chiefs 14-1, ho hum.

  408. Chris says:

    I like how we stayed aggressive on the rams last drive.

  409. PDWAY says:

    A lot to like about that 2nd half man . . .

    What a fantastic all-around game by our defense, Adams all over the field, his energy lifts the energy of the entire unit. And Reed is an absolute fantastic find. having him and Shaq (didn’t have a great game, but he ain’t tre flowers) makes us so much more stable. Really proud of how the defense played all game.

    And maybe, just maybe, Russ shook off some of that bad mojo that has had all of us scratching our heads the past 5 weeks, that key 3rd down conversion to Hyde, the floater to Lockett, the final TD to Hollister — all those plays looked like the Russell we know.

    Props to the Rams defense, they’re excellent, nothing easy in the pass or run game against them. And to Goff too – just played right through that ugly thumb dislocation.

    All-in, our defense hung right in there with the #1 defense in football, and our offense was just a bit better – it was a well-earned win. Division champs again and it feels good!
