16 freaky athletes to monitor for the Seahawks in 2021

Ohio State’s Baron Browing is a fantastic athlete

Traits aren’t everything but they do matter.

The concept of ‘just picking good players’ is a rhetoric that doesn’t befit a sport that emphasises physicality and speed perhaps more than any other.

Furthermore, the techniques and nuances for college football are far away from what you can expect at the next level. A ‘good’ player in college doesn’t necessarily translate to a ‘good’ player in the NFL. Even if they can be coached and developed, limitations will nearly always be exposed.

With limited draft stock in 2021 and no pick until the late second round (as things stand) the Seahawks will need to be on the ball to deliver impact from this class.

I’ve mentioned this before but I think the objective has to be to shoot for high upside in order to acquire someone with the potential to be great.

Any player available in the late second round with an amazing physical profile is going to have some question marks. Yet there’s an opportunity within that range to make a half-court shot.

D.K. Metcalf is the prime example. He fell not so much for the well-publicised three-cone time but probably more for the fact he nearly had to retire during the 2018 season due to a serious neck injury. Either way he was there and in a re-draft, he’s probably the third overall pick not the #64 pick.

The Seahawks equally had great success drafting Frank Clark in the late second round. He fell for very different reasons but had a top-10 physical profile and played to that level once he developed into a starter.

There have been misses too and that’s simply part of the draft. Christine Michael is the most explosive and agile running back to enter the NFL in a generation. He had star traits but couldn’t ever put it together.

Here’s the thing though — you can live with occasional Christine Michael if the upside is you end up with players such as Metcalf and Clark.

Seeking players with outstanding physical traits has worked well for the Seahawks in the second and third round. Bobby Wagner, Golden Tate, Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett, Justin Britt and Damien Lewis are other examples. All tested very well.

The Kansas City Chiefs built their Super Bowl roster off the back of amazing upside. Not every pick, signing or trade has worked for them — but look at their recent early round draft picks. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Willie Gay Jr, Mecole Hardman, Juan Thornhill, Breeland Speaks, Patrick Mahomes, Tanoh Kpassagnon, Chris Jones. It’s a who’s who of every star tester, high-upside talent or five-star recruit.

They traded for Frank Clark, another incredible athlete, signed Sammy Watkins (at great expense) and signed big new deals for Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce.

They are basically the fastest, most explosive team in the league. Yes — they reached the pinnacle because of Mahomes. He too was loaded with traits and he’s surrounded by athletic stars.

With that in mind I wanted to note down some possible targets for the 2021 draft who possess high-upside and major physical potential.

The combine will reveal a lot of information, as always. For now we have to work with what little info is available. I’ve not included obvious first round picks. These are players being projected in a region where they might be available to the Seahawks (although it’s still early days) either in round two or perhaps even later.

Haskell Garrett (DT, Ohio State)
I only watched Garrett this week but was incredibly impressed with his quickness, hand-use and power. It was even more impressive given he was shot in the face a few weeks ago and made a miraculous return to the football field. He ran a 4.41 short shuttle at SPARQ at 298lbs which is an outstanding time and he added a 5.13 forty. His stock is difficult to project, especially after the shooting, but he’s highly talented and definitely a player to monitor.

Ambry Thomas (CB, Michigan)
Thomas opted out of the 2020 college season and Michican are missing him badly. He has reasonable size (6-0, 185lbs) but his athletic profile is sensational. He ran a 4.43 at SPARQ, a 3.90 short shuttle and jumped a 36 inch vertical. He had three interceptions last season and plays with great instinct and toughness. Thomas is immensely talented and with a strong combine, could vault up many boards.

Tutu Atwell (WR, Louisville)
Atwell is tiny (listed at just 5-9, 165lbs) and that is a concern. So too will be his limited catching radius. However, he has tremendous production (21 career TD’s) and his physical profile is incredible. He’s reportedly achieved a 4.26 forty, a 3.90 short shuttle and he can squat around 600lbs. Paul Richardson was only 175lbs at the combine in 2014 and the Seahawks took him in round two. Atwell could be the kind of dynamic speedster this offense craves.

Baron Browning (LB, Ohio State)
It will be stunning if the Seahawks spend another high pick on a linebacker but I had to include Browning on this list. At SPARQ he ran a fantastic 4.18 short shuttle. The Seahawks historically put a high value on that drill for the linebacker position. He also jumped a 37.5 inch vertical, ran a 4.56 forty and managed a total score of 131.91 — the most by any player at his position in 2017. He’s a freakish athlete with the tape to match. Don’t be shocked if he works into the first round.

Andre Cisco (S, Syracuse)
Unless the Seahawks make a big move (such as trading Jamal Adams) they’re unlikely to be in the market for a safety either. However, Cisco is a fantastic playmaker with a terrific physical profile. He has nine interceptions at Syracuse. He’s been timed in the 4.3 range for the forty, the 4.1 range in the short shuttle and he jumped a 36 inch vertical at SPARQ. He suffered a lower leg injury this season which could impact his stock.

Alim McNeil (DT, NC State)
When it comes to freskish physical profiles, McNeil has to be near the top of the list. At SPARQ he ran a 4.27 short shuttle — a time most defensive backs would be satisfied with — at over 270lbs. He’s since grown to 320lbs and yet he’s carrying minimal bad weight. He also ran a 4.94 forty and jumped a 34 inch vertical. Explosive, quick and agile — McNeil can also control blocks as a nose tackle and made headlines for a remarkable ‘big man’ pick-six earlier this season.

Jaelen Phillips (DE, Miami)
Phillips was once a storied recruit chased by every big team in college football. He opted to stay in California and picked UCLA. His time with the Bruins was dogged by concussion issues and at one point retirement seemed possible. However, instead he transferred to Miami and he’s having an outstanding season with five sacks in eight games and 10.5 TFL’s. He recorded an 111.18 score via SPARQ and has flashed five-star recruiting talent for Miami this year.

Xavier Thomas (DE, Clemson)
It’s been a bit of an underwhelming season for Thomas so far with only three sacks. Tipped by many to be the next big-name Clemson D-line prospect, he hasn’t really elevated his name into one of the stars of college football. Even so, his physical talent is undeniable. He ran a 4.30 short shuttle at 270lbs at SPARQ and added a 4.58 forty and a 33 inch vertical. He was the top defensive lineman who tested. There’s a lot of untapped potential here although I wonder about his length and ability to stay clean when taking on blocks.

Walker Little (T, Stanford)
It’s hard to gauge Little’s stock. A knee injury ended his 2019 season prematurely. He opted not to declare for the 2020 draft but then did opt out of the 2020 college football season. Where is he at physically? He has amazing size (6-7, +300lbs) and he was the top SPARQ tester on the O-line in 2017 with a remarkable short shuttle of 4.40. The injury and absence could force him down boards (although teams are always willing to take a chance on a good left tackle).

Tyson Campbell (CB, Georgia)
He’s tall (6-3), long and has the frame of a Seahawks cornerback. He also ran a 4.47 at SPARQ and jumped a 33-inch vertical. His short shuttle of 4.51, however, is very disappointing and he’d need to test better in that drill. Campbell doesn’t play aggressively enough in coverage and he gives up too many easy passes. Yet the physical potential and upside is there — especially if he improves in the agility testing.

Marvin Wilson (DT, Florida State)
Another former five-star recruit who had an amazing SPARQ session. At 6-4 and 330lbs he ran a 5.17 forty and a 4.56 short shuttle. That is frankly unbelievable agility for a man of that size. At Florida State he’s flashed talent, an ability to play inside and at the five technique and he was in better shape this year before an injury ended his season. However, conditioning will be a concern for teams.

Jake Ferguson (TE, Wisconsin)
Ferguson has always been a good blocker and a typical Wisconsin tight end. However — this season he’s also become their top target in the passing game, with 181 receiving yards and four touchdowns in three games. A former four-star recruit, Ferguson ran a blistering 4.15 short shuttle and jumped a 34.5 inch vertical at SPARQ. Virtually all of the top TE’s in the league did well in the agility testing.

Javian Hawkins (RB, Louisville)
I don’t think he runs in a ‘Seahawks style’. He’s not a tone-setter who gets the hard yards. He’s also out of their size bracket at 5-9 and 200lbs. However, I wanted to include him here due to his testing and production. He has 822 rushing yards and eight total touchdowns in eight games this season with a 6.2 YPC average. He ran a 4.36 forty at SPARQ, a 3.95 short shuttle and jumped a 41 inch vertical. He is extremely fast, explosive and talented. He’s just undersized.

Aaron Banks (G, Notre Dame)
This one is more about what I’ve seen on tape. He’s 6-6 and 330lbs and he absolutely dominates at the LOS. Power, strength and control. Based on his SPARQ testing I wouldn’t expect an amazing combine performance. However, to me he looks like the ideal candidate to play left guard for Seattle. Since Mike Solari came in they’ve preferred hulking monsters to play on the left side. Banks fits the bill perfectly.

Aidan Hutchinson (DE, Michigan)
He’s just suffered a fractured leg that could keep him out of action until April. He might be able to fit in a pre-draft workout if he opts to declare. He could also return to Michigan. However, there’s enough on tape already to think Hutchinson could be a star with the right kind of support. He’s brilliantly put together and can play inside/out with ease. He wins with quickness and power. He’s around 6-6 tall with great length and he ran a 4.47 short shuttle at SPARQ. If he goes pro and the injury limits his stock, he could be a steal for someone.

Kyler Gordon (CB, Washington)
I watched Gordon earlier this week and I think if he stays at Washington for next year, he could be a first round lock in 2022. He is incredible. However, who knows how players will feel about turning pro after this unpredictable year? He’s capable of a 42.5 inch vertical and a 6.52 three cone. Gordon, as with Elijah Molden, has unbelievable potential but he’s young and needs time to develop. They could both be NFL stars and possess the perfect blend of talent, instinct and physical upside.

I would’ve loved to have included Penn State running back Journey Brown on this list. He’s incredibly talented, capable of running in the 4.3’s, he’s explosive and he finishes runs. Unfortunately he recently had to retire from football due to a heart condition.

  1. Big Mike

    Why would Alim McNeil be unlikely to be a 1st rounder Rob? You made no mention of that. Is it a case of if he tests really well with the additional weight he’ll move into the first?

    • Rob Staton

      I didn’t say he’s unlikely to be a first rounder.

      I said these are players being projected in a region where they might be available to the Seahawks.

      • Big Mike

        OK let me rephrase the question: what reason(s) are in play that would have him available to the Seahawks later in round 2?

        • Rob Staton

          Lots of things. He’s not a sure fire first rounder by any stretch. There’s only ever a handful of those. As much as I like him it’s hardly going to be a shock if he lasts into the second or third. I really liked Damien Lewis last year, thought he was a top-50 talent. He was there in R3.

          • Big Mike

            Thanks. I have this fantasy of Seattle having their own Aaron Donald, or really I should say Aaron Donald Lite cuz he’s generational. But a hugely disruptive DT is a wonderful thing, pressure up the middle in the QB’s face and all that.
            Good point about Lewis. Your assessment of him as top 50 has played out based on eye test and PFF grades.

            • BobbyK

              We did have Tez. He is/was better than Donald in terms of an overall game (not rushing the passer).

              re: Rob… Lewis… super cool he actually interviewed him HERE!

              • charlietheunicorn

                Tez also didn’t have the supporting cast around him…. such as the 2013 Seahawks had on the DL/front 7. Tez was truly great on a truly awful run of teams. I could have sworn he would got occasionally triple teamed… and still made plays.

          • BruceN

            Your interview with Damien was priceless.

  2. uptop

    Any thoughts on the Utah TE Brant Kuithe, Rob? Against UW last week he was fantastic in the first half, very athletic and they even did a TE end around with him. I have no idea about his draft status but he is a Junior. He do have lots of TEs but his athletic profile is really intriguing.

    • Rob Staton

      I saw the game last week but I haven’t studied him, apologies.

  3. cha


    DJ Reed probably lining up opposite Griffin Sunday

    <blockquote<“Tre’s got a hamstring that’s bothering him. It’s gonna be a challenge for him to make it back,” Carroll told Dave Wyman. “Playing those sprinter positions you need it all, so that’s (going to go) all the way to game time before we can get an update, see if he has a chance.”

    Dunlap a game time decision. Sounds like he should be rested this week.

    “Carlos has a sore foot that he may be able to play with. We’ll have to see,” Carroll said. “He’s determined to play and all that. We’ll find out as we get to game time, really.”

    The piece doesn’t mention Brandon Shell’s ankle but he hasn’t practiced yet, so probably best to count on Ogbuehi.

    • Big Mike

      Let’s get ’em healthy, though I wish Shell was gonna be back at full strength. Cedric was rough last week.

      • uptop

        It’s a shame that Jordan Simmons is hurt, I feel like if he weren’t we could have Jamarco Jones at RT, which would be so much better than Cedric

        • Rob Staton

          Would it?

          • uptop

            Maybe not so much better but atleast better, Cedric looked really bad (although he was against Brandon Graham)

  4. Chris Wood

    I know you don’t think a linebacker is a “need” for the Seahawks, but is it a stretch to think they may look for a SAM with a similar profile as Irvin? Irvin is coming off of a ACL injury at the age of 33 and we all know how much you loved the cost for him.

    KJ’s done a great job as a SAM but his quickness is still a downside for him at certain aspects to his game and I don’t know what he may ask for a new contract. I wouldn’t be to peeved if they were able to grab someone like Irvine, a player who can cover or rush depending on the personnel and the number of downs. I feel like more speed on the edge is never a bad thing when we play the 9’ers and Rams 2x a year.

    Great write up regardless, love the content!

    • uptop

      It would be great to have two young players at our LBs, Brooks at WILL and an athlete at SAM defending those niners and rams outside and stretch runs. Hopefully we can find an athlete later down in the draft for that reason, there are greater needs and some draft strengths that should be addressed in earlier rounds.

      • Chris Wood

        I feel if they have an opportunity to save money by letting KJ and Irvin sail off into the sunset they may look at that option, especially with the incoming Adams payday.
        I agree that there may be greater needs but killing two birds with one stone ain’t nothing to sneeze at.

        • Rob Staton

          They’ve got to keep KJ IMO.

    • Rob Staton

      Maybe but you can’t keep pouring resource into the LB position

      • Hoggs41

        I hope they keep KJ as well but reduce his role to the SAM that comes off the field when in nickel. Let Brooks take over for full time at WILL. You would slso have some insurance if Brooks or Wagner went down. You may have to have a tough conversation with him though to let him know your plans in case he wanted to be a full time starter for another team. I wonder if you could get him for $4m if that indeed happened.

  6. hawkfanforetenity

    Thanks for another fantastic write up Rob! There seem to be so few places where intelligent discussion happens online. This place, and the community is a treasure. I think there’s an under-rated group of people in the world who crave intelligent debate, but they fly under the radar due to the noise created by those unable, or unwilling to participate in such dialogue.

  7. DC

    Hitting the Sim early this year…

    R3 76. Alim McNeill, DT North Carolina State

    R4 121. Kyler Gordon, CB Washington

    R5 137. Tutu Atwell, WR Louisville

    R5 155. Jake Ferguson, TE Wisconsin

    • dcd2

      Ferguson is really good. I’ll be surprised if he’s there in the 5th. We’re probably down to Dissley and Parkinson after this year, so TE could be a target.

      • Rob Staton

        Ferguson will go earlier than that. I think R2.

        • dcd2

          I think that’s more like it. I like him more than Kmet and he went 2nd this year. The Penn St TE also looks really good.

          • Chris Wood

            For how little we use our TE’s I don’t wont the Seahawks to draft one sooner than the 5th round. I’d hate to use a high round draft pick on a decent tight end only for him to catch the ball once a game.

            • dcd2

              Dissley played 72% of snaps, Hollister 55%, Parkinson 16% VS Philly. When a starting tackle goes down, having a good blocking TE (even if it’s just to chip) can help a guy like Cedric not get beat on every play.

              I’m not arguing for taking a TE with our first pick necessarily. If we took one of those guys, I wouldn’t be upset though. They are both really good blockers and receiving threats that will get drafted early.

              Existing talent can dictate ‘how often we use our TE’ too. KC and SF didn’t use the TE like they do now until Kelce and Kittle came to town.

              • Chris Wood

                I guess when I said “use” I should’ve elaborated on that. Yes I agree our tightends are important in our blocking duties but to me they are criminally under-utilized during our pass plays. The only time I see our tightends running a route is during play-action it seems. (I am a average fan , I don’t watch a lot of tape so I could be mistaken.)

                And while I agree that talent does dictate usage of a position, I also look at our history usage of that position too. The only tightend to receive a look from Wilson to me was Zack Martin. Graham was never thrown to until his last year of his contract in Seattle. And we’ve had a revolving door at that position since.

                I just feel like our tightends tend to play one dimensional so I’d hate for the Seahawks to spend a high draft pick on someone who only ends up playing a one dimensional role so to speak.

                • dcd2

                  All good. At this stage, it’s just about finding guys you like (for those of us who are draft junkies). I think Ferguson looks like a really good TE. That was my main point.

                  Once we get through FA, we’ll have a better idea of what positions they might target. For now, it’s more of a carpet-bomb approach in finding guys you really like… at least for me.

                  Which, of course, makes our lack of picks so disheartening. Patrick Johnson (PITT) has been my (BobbyK/TJ Watt level) draft crush for two years, and we have no shot at him.

    • Qoolio

      I’ve been hitting the simulator early too. With it being a bit early for names, I wanted to see what return I might be able to get through the new pick trader.

      I went with the idea that we flipped Jamal Adams to Miami for #22. Since I feel Seattle will want to recover picks, I traded back and end up with:

      R2- #58, #60, #63
      R3- #83, #90
      R4- #121
      R5- #153, #155

      I like the quantity, but I also felt back about losing a chance to draft a potential difference maker in the first round.

  8. DAWGfan

    What are your thoughts on Cade Otton TE from UW? I was listening to Cam Cleeland(Former UW TE) and he thinks he may be the best TE at UW since Mark Bruener, but with better speed and agility. Also ZTF, he could go pro this year and has been unstoppable, I am a huge DAWG fan and he has been a revelation. No one expected him to kill it like he has this year.

    • DAWGfan

      Forgot to comment regarding Gordon. Love his potential, kid needs to stay at least another year to prove he is more than just an athlete. But if he does, sky is the limit and a potential top 10 pick. Really no program develops DB’s as well as UW right now and he just needs a little extra time to gain that experience.

    • DC

      I hope everyone who can stay, stays. Would be nice to have a head of steam going into the (full?) 2021 season and launch the Lake era properly. That man has created a DB to NFL factory.

    • Rob Staton

      I saw Otten last week but haven’t studied him enough to offer a worthwhile review

      • DAWGfan

        This week vs Stanford would be worthwhile. They like to play smashmouth and it will be great measuring stick for both Otton and ZTF.

        • Paul Cook

          My guess is that Kyler Gordon returns for his redshirt junior year. He really doesn’t have a lot of run yet, as he’s not even a starting CB, more like a 4th starter sitting on the top of the 2nd rung behind Elijah Molden, Keith Taylor, and Trent McDuffie. Also a pretty incredible ST’s player. This guy can jump, sprint, and move quick in tight spaces like nobody’s business.

          I think he needs to develop his body a little more, and just become a better all-round DB with time and experience. This guy could easily run up the draft board next year with a strong performance.

          • Rob Staton

            I’d expect him to return but you just never know these days.

    • TheOtherJordan

      He is the best TE UW has had since Mark Bruener.

  9. Happy Hawk

    Thanks Rob great article and content. I have been looking at Walker Little as a potential replacement at Left Tackle. Heard he had one of the best Sparq testing ever for his position. Is that true? Where can you access these test scores for college players? Is this testing done only when players are in high school? Some other players I am interested in your opinion on for possible edge rushers in our draft range: Basham (Wake) Rumph (Duke) and Hamilcar Reshed Jr at (OSU). Could Trey Sermon 6ft 221 RB (Ohio St) be a late round option at RB should the Hawks let Carson test FA?

    • Rob Staton

      I’m not crazy about Basham. Rumph will be day three as will Reshed Jr.

      Little’s SPARQ score was good mostly because of the 4.40 short shuttle listed. The other testing wasn’t amazing.

  10. Lewis

    Anybody know how rookie contracts will be affected by the cap next year if it decreases? If rookie salaries will do with the cap, it could keep some early round guys from declaring.

    • Rob Staton

      I doubt it to be honest

    • Darnell

      I’m also wondering if Darrell Taylor accrues a season towards free agency if he spends the entire season on the NFI list.

      • Rob Staton

        All it means is he becomes a RFA instead.

        Even getting to that point would be a success at this stage.

  11. Magmatizer

    Elijah Molden has accepted his Senior Bowl invite. Should be a nice opportunity to showcase his skills.

    • Rob Staton

      I’m not sure we’ll ever see Darrell Taylor.

      • TomLPDX

        I hope that’s not the case. I’m going to remain optimistic, at least for now.

        • Rob Staton

          What cause is there for optimism though?

          Two weeks ago he was all set to return to practise.

          It never happened, Carroll’s tone has increasingly become negative and now he’s going for a second opinion from other doctors. But a second opinion on what exactly??? You don’t go for a second opinion to see whether you can start practising.

          As I’ve said a few times, established reporters pre-draft wondered whether Taylor would go undrafted due to the seriousness of this injury. It’s incredible the Seahawks traded up for him and are now in this situation.

          • TomLPDX

            There is too much we don’t know. Why isn’t it healing? Is there something else that can be done to help in that regard? Etc. I just hope he can get healthy for next year but like I said, we don’t know what is going on other than Pete speak (which tells us next to nothing).

            • Rob Staton

              You said you were remaining optimistic though. Surely you admit there’s nothing to be ‘optimistic’ about?

              • TomLPDX

                I’m definitely not optimistic about him playing this year and actually don’t expect him to. I’m at the point where I hope (hence the optimism) he will be ok for the long term and can play in the future. I’m not a Doc and the info we get from Pete is useless and we just don’t know what is actually happening to him.

                • Rob Staton

                  Well you’ve said we don’t know what is actually happening twice.

                  I know he’s been out for a year with a serious leg fracture and he’s now getting a second opinion out of town, despite hope from the team he might practise last week.

                  So that’s something to be pessimistic about. I can’t see any cause for optimism.

                  • Big Mike

                    Ditto though I’ll at least remain “hopeful”.

          • Malc from PO

            The team may also be guilty of thinking they could have lightning strike twice. They got Metcalf by trading up to take a player who had fallen because he teams were shy of a potentially career ending injury. Once bitten, twice shy but in this case maybe once lucky, twice reckless.

            • Rob Staton

              Perhaps. But the difference is Metcalf showed up at the combine and tested through the roof. He then went through all the vigorous medical checks you have at the combine and teams could request all of the details, information or re-testing they required during the process. So you were making an educated decision, even if many teams opted to avoid DK.

              With Taylor — the medical teams stopped him practising at the Senior Bowl. Then they stopped him doing drills at the combine. You couldn’t do any vigorous medical checks due to Covid shutting the country down. Taylor had a visit to Seattle but clearly they didn’t get the information they needed because Carroll has since admitted they made an error in judging his injury. This was the opposite of an educated decision. It was a shot in the dark because they were absolutely desperate for a pass rusher, after flunking free agency.

      • James Cr.

        Agreed – I have resigned myself to expecting him to never play. The way Pete is so vague is a telling sign IMO.

        • Rob Staton

          Yep, I think that too.

      • cha

        It’s ominous.

        He said last Friday that Taylor would meet with the doctors ‘Monday or Tuesday for the final time.’ Assuming that actually happened, it appears those docs didn’t or wouldn’t sign off on activating Taylor and/or found something they wanted an outside source to verify.

        • Rob Staton

          Desperation inspires bad decisions.

          Trading up for Taylor because they failed to properly address the pass rush in FA, trading as much as they did for Jamal Adams.

          All of this was because they didn’t sort out their priorities in March.

          They can’t put themselves in that position ever again. They’ve got to start setting up the draft to allow it to come to them.

          The mismanagement of the resources this year was astonishing.

          I still can’t believe Carroll said a few weeks ago that they basically ‘made a mistake’ on Taylor’s injury.

        • BobbyK

          Everyone who is a semi-regular here knows that I loved TJ Watt and hated Malik McDowell. That being said, they traded down a couple times and ACQUIRED extra picks to pass on Watt and draft McFailure. One of those acquired picks turned into Chris Carson in the 7th round. I can live with that to a certain degree. The draft is a crapshoot.

          However, they TRADED UP for Taylor. Not only did they forfeit an opportunity to draft a Jeremy Chinn, DaVon Hamilton, etc. with their 2nd round pick but they also threw away the 3rd round Earl Thomas comp pick to go get Taylor. That is even more unacceptable than the Malik McDowell disaster. Add to the disaster is the fact that the Steelers took a young superstar in the making, Chase Claypool with the pick after Taylor.

        • Big Mike

          Sad situation, for the team and the kid.

      • Elmer

        Another McDowell but for a different reason?

        • Rob Staton

          It’s trending that way it seems.

          Except I get the McDowell pick. They had a loaded roster, he was a top-10 talent who fell and it was worth taking a chance on him. His recklessness on a quad bike ruined his chances of a career. I wish they’d taken TJ Watt instead but I don’t blame the Seahawks for taking a shot on McDowell.

          On Taylor — it was a pure desperation move. And he was already injured. They took him anyway, traded up for him too, through desperation over the pass rush.

          • AlaskaHawk

            I think the McDowell pick was a failure of mentoring/training and contract terms. He needed someone to monitor his activities over the summer. Someone needed to emphasize no motorcycles or ATV’s. I say this because I have lost at least 6 young people I know to those activities. And after my friend’s pregnant wife hit a bump at medium speed, fell off her ATV and broke her arm. Fortunately the baby was unharmed.

            • Rob Staton

              It’s hard to stipulate something as specific as ATV’s though. What if it was the first time he’d ever been on one?

              • AlaskaHawk

                That’s a good reason for not being on it. People just don’t realize the danger, and people that age think they are immune.

                I don’t see why it is hard to put something specific in a contract. How about no drugs, no murder, no smacking women, no atv’s, and no motorcycles.

      • Shawn

        What about in 2021?

        Considering how few picks we have next year, getting Taylor healthy and he could be a defacto 2021 pick for us.

        • Rob Staton

          He had a serious leg fracture and a year later, it hasn’t healed.

          They were hoping to get him on the practise field at the start of last week. Now he’s going for a second opinion out of town.

          I think we need to see him on a football field before we can have any hopes for him playing for the Seahawks.

      • CaptainJack

        Looks even worse on the team than McDowell.

        McDowell’s injury happened after we drafted him. Taylor’s injury happened before and we just didn’t do enough to look into it.

        • Rob Staton

          Pure desperation

        • Elmer

          20/20 hindsight says that the Seahawks probably would have been wise to retain babysitters for McDowell. COVID may have made it more difficult for the team to thoroughly check Taylor’s injury.

      • BruceN

        You mean not this year, right?

        • Elmer

          Right. Different years.)

  13. charlietheunicorn

    Alim McNeil (DT, NC State)
    I would not be adverse to lining him up next to Reed and in a rotation with Harrison and Ford. You would have a very dynamic DL in the interior….. making Dunlap one of your DEs and leaving only 1 other DE and / or LEO type (Irvin/Mayowa?) to start opposite side. Not a bad looking collection of names who have contributed in the NFL, mixed with a few young pups.

    Tutu Atwell (WR, Louisville)
    Strong argument for Seahawks taking a swing on him. Feels like he is a luxury pick, but Richardson was not the “traditional” WR Seattle craved and they still took him. They now have their big guys now (Gordon?/Metcalf), so they need shifty/fast WRs the make the offense even more explosive.

    Aaron Banks (G, Notre Dame)
    I’m tracking you here. I think LG is a priority position to get sorted out in 2021. They brought Lewis in and he contributed from day #1. If you can find another guy along the OL who can contribute day #1 then you have to do it. I love the idea of a fortified LG/C/RG combo that can grow together for 2-3 years.

    Journey Brown (RB, Penn State)
    Selfishly, I wonder how he would have translated to the NFL….. but the heart condition was caught and he will not be able to realize that dream.

    Were their any other RBs that screamed Seahawks? They have such a set profile, I can’t see them taking any one who doesn;t match it… SPARQ, Production, Grit wise…. in a 5’10” 220 package.

    • Rob Staton

      I haven’t seen any RB’s who scream Seahawks so far.

      I don’t think LG is a priority position. If Haynes or Simmons have to take that job, or if they retain Iupati, it won’t be the end of the world. I like Banks a lot though — hopefully they can address their other needs and set themselves up to go BPA.

      However, there are major question marks on the DL and at corner.

      • vanhawksfan

        Rob, what about Kylin Hill from Mississippi State?

        • Rob Staton

          Yes, he’s one who fits the size/explosive testing range they look for.

        • uptop

          Wow he is very seahawk-y, so many hurdles.

        • Scot04

          Reminds me alot of Carson. Good player

    • uptop

      I would love a speedy/shifty receiver, we need someone to run sweeps and stretch the field horizontally and vertically. Hopefully we can find someone in the latter parts of the draft

      • dcd2

        It’s funny that they’re trying to use Moore in that role. Swain seems like he’s be better suited. Moore looks like he’s running in sand.

        • uptop

          To be fair Moore looked serviceable in that position earlier in the season, he’s clearly banged up. Other than Dorsett they don’t have the players personnel-wise to run that effectively, Im not sure if swain is the answer either. It’s weird because Swain’s measurables are nearly identical as Robert Woods, but he isn’t there yet.

          • Gohawks5151

            I could have sworn they would have used Swain on returns. He was good at that while at Florida. Moore kind of has a pattern of fading as the season goes along. I do like him and hope I’m wrong.

            • uptop

              Hopefully we can see more of him then, it feels like he’s either raw or underutilized. Maybe Skybox Schotty can cook up something for Swain. He has the measurables and college tape that makes me think he can do a lot more. With Moore banged up maybe we’ll see more.

    • Sea Mode

      Somehow this just dawned on me… 🤯

      Can someone please get a pic from behind of “Harrison” “Ford” lined up next to each other!

      • cha

        Bah. Give me the rookie combo of Brooks and Robinson.

  14. HawkFan907


    Have you had a chance to watch BYU LT Brady Christensen while watching some Zach Wilson tape? He is PFFs top rated OT this year, and was ranked 14th last year while playing a much tougher schedule. He looks like a great technician and plays we great strength. Downsides are his age, and his weight, but it looks like he can easily add on 15 pounds.

    Could be a mid round option to eventually supplant Brown on the left side.

    • Rob Staton

      I haven’t, sorry

  15. Gohawks5151


    You consider Kwitty Paye freaky? Sometimes I think Carlos Basham is too. What range does Gordon go if he does come out? Have you had the chance to go watch Jermar Jefferson from Oregon St yet?

    • dcd2

      Jefferson (OSU) looks good as a later pick if he declares. He’s probably the best RB in the PAC in my eyes. Very under the radar at this point.

      • Gohawks5151

        Such a wild card if any of these Pac 12 guys come back besides the ones that opted out to start. Jermar is one of the rare ones that is showing out in this short season.

  16. GhostGH

    Anyone have a good feel for the OT class next year? Outside of Sewell the top end seems shallow

    • BobbyK

      I have never believed in a “good draft class” at a certain position.

      For example, what about ’19 and it supposedly being a good DL draft class. Who cares if all the pass rushers you want are gone by the time you pick? It does not matter.

      I loved the ’19 WR class. I especially loved the Ohio State WRs. But what if you only drafted 1 WR and it was Paris Campell? I loved that guy, but he sucks through 2 years in comparison to his OSU teammate or anyone from Ole Miss. If you “tapped into” that receiver class… it doesn’t matter! No?

      • charlietheunicorn

        The 2019 draft class has had multiple stand-outs. For example, Paris hasn’t lived up to the hype per sai, but he has only been in the league 2 seasons… and could still improve. He had dog doo doo throwing him the ball and battled some injuries in year 1.. sadly, year 2 had different and more consequential injuries pop up.

        Remarkable that both of the top end Miss St WRs have shown up big in the NFL…. There were at least 4-5 legit WR taken in the 1st 3 rounds….

        • McZ

          I take lots of pride in wanting Olamide Zachaeus as UDFA in 2018. He had something special, and now he is Atlantas WR#3.

          This years equivalent is TJ Vasher. There is a highlight video on YT, he is 6’6 and has insane arms. Lots of potential, low floor, low risk.

    • AlaskaHawk

      My recollection is that first rounders are about 60% successful (based on getting a second contract) and the odds just go down from there. So even if you do pick a first rounder 4 out of 10 won’t be successful. By the time your are picking in the 5th round, it is more like 1 out of 5 players will be successful).

      • charlietheunicorn

        or 0 for whatever as Seattle and 4th round WRs 😉

    ZION TUPUOLA-FETUI / DE/OLB UW (red-shirt sophomore)

    I didn’t realize he was listed at 6’3″ 280. I had thought he was in the 260 lb range.
    He is larger than I was expecting, could play DE in the NFL (???)

  18. Dave

    I’m sorry – Alim McNeil has put on 50lbs?? Holy moly that’s insane!

    • McZ

      A really comprehensive list. I watched ND vs NC, and Banks was the prototype LG. He is as plug’n play like Lewis.

      Those ND TEs are all worth a look, especially Tremble.

      I think, with our picks, we could also tap into the excellent unloading Boston College OL.

      Dyami Brown and Dazz Newsome seem to be good mid round options in a n otherwise meh WR draft. RB also doesn’t look good.

    • Rob Staton

      It’s not bad weight either.

      The NC State training staff are insane. They’ve transformed several players over the last few years.

      • Trevor

        Great point about the NC St staff Rob. The Hawks should be trying to nab those guys.

    Wow, Tony. 😲

    Personally, I love Fields’ next-level potential and feel he would be the odds-on No. 1 pick in any draft that didn’t include Lawrence. Fields will be rated higher than Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, Sam Darnold, and so on. In my opinion, Fields is a potentially better version of Russell Wilson.


    • Big Mike

      Fields is very good but a couple of those picks he threw last week against Indiana are red flags to me. Russ threw 3 his entire Sr. season iirc.

    • BobbyK

      That’s pretty high praise (saying he could be a better version of someone who will be in HOF one day).

      • Volume12

        I’m all for some hyperbole, but that’s a bit rich.

      • charlietheunicorn

        Someone has to get the pre draft hype train going for various guys. Might as well get Fields onboard early. Seriously doubt he would go #1 “most years”….. top 10 is more realistic.

      Blessing in disguise?

    • Sea Mode

      We should just rest anyone who’s not 100%. Cedric, Dunlap, anyone. Personally, I’m almost inclined to keep Carson in bubble wrap. Sure, he’s nice to have now. But we NEED him in the playoffs. If we’re up big and PC is still sending him out there to close out the game, I’m gonna be upset.

      • cha

        Agree, but: the Seahawks badly need Carson for the Rams game.

    Chad Wheeler activated from PS.


  29. charlietheunicorn

    Ok, now I know something is wrong with officiating and the OL.

    Chicago OG Ifedi has a grand total of 2 penalties this season.
    For reference, he had (at OT) 18 or so in 2019 for the Seahawks.

    • DougK

      Holding penalties are down across the league this year, they are letting them play more it seems. There have been a few articles about it on other sites especially earlier this season. Though recently (last 3-4 weeks), it feels like they are starting to call more of them (I don’t have any numbers to back that up but that’s the feeling I get).

  30. Big Mike

    I think Rob cursed Elijah Moulden. He’s missed 2 tackles already and was late filling a hole and it’s still the first quarter.
    Entire Huskies D looks like puke so far.

    • Paul Cook

      Second game in a row they’ve started mentally and physically clunky. Getting gaps against them blown wide open on the line, and already making 3 or 4 bad mental mistakes. I can’t figure out why they came out so flat again at the start. You’d think they would have come out with some real edge after last week.

  31. Big Mike

    Now Moulden out hurt.
    I was only kidding Rob!

    Very flat man. Just a really sad showing so far.

    • Rob Staton

      It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. the Eagles are “going to need a bigger cornerback”. Cue ominous shark music.

    There’s no need for any deep analysis about that first half of the Husky game. Stanford’s OL beat the living crap out of our defensive front. It was an embarrassing display of football manhood.

    Such a cool article.

  38. vbullen65

    Hey Rob, 710 ESPN is reading and stealing your stuff..You put out a great article on the thought of Richard Sherman and the Seahawks reuniting and now ESPN does the same thing…

    • Rob Staton

      Well I don’t own the rights to discuss the topic 😂 😉

      The 710 ESPN article was a summary of Bob & Dave discussing a Sherman return. Bob mentioned he’d seen something on twitter suggesting Sherman should/could come back. He couldn’t remember the source of the tweet but said he thought it came from Tom Pelissero or Ian Rapoport. I suspect, given Bob follows me on twitter, he’s probably referring to the article I put out a few days ago. I haven’t seen TP or IR talking about Sherman going back to Seattle and I haven’t seen anything similar to my tweets/piece this week. So it probably was the tweet I put out linking to the article.

      Nevertheless, I can’t be sure about that and even if it was my tweet he saw, it doesn’t really matter. It doesn’t bother me. I think it’s a good topic to discuss. And while I’d always love a plug to SDB, I’m not precious about it. This is just an independent blog written by a bloke from England.

      More importantly I’d like to see Sherm back. And I’d like to see him come back and finish his career the right way with the right team. Plus it would piss off the Niners, which is a bonus.

  39. AlaskaHawk

    Washington making a come back against Stanford. At least the game is interesting.

    • Big Mike

      Over now.
      Husky defensive line was an embarrassment today.

      • Paul Cook

        Unbelievable that they had three chances on 3rd and long to get Stanford off the field and inexplicably give themselves a chance to win the game. Yet they couldn’t. Very much like the Hawks D most of the season. Frustrating as hell.

  40. Paul Cook

    I think Stanford has converted all but two 3rd down situations. It’s like the Hawks D most of the season.

    • CaptainJack

      Husky pass rush took the game off. Felt like the seahawks against the Bills combined with the Vikings.

  41. CaptainJack

    UW pups should be outright embarrassed after that ass whoopin. In college football if you win the line of scrimmage, you win the game.

    • Paul Cook

      I would characterize the Huskies defensive front’s performance today as a token gesture. I might have to reevaluate some of the personnel up front. I know they’re missing a guy like Latu, but most of the rest came in as pretty high 4 star recruits. ZTF was actually a quiet 3 star recruit. Some of these guys got to start putting their man pants on now.

  42. Rob Staton

    Wow. Just wow.


    • Rob Staton

      And this is a disgrace: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLcW6Kbr1AI

      • Sea Mode

        My goodness…

      • Scot04

        That’s pretty pathetic right there. No wonder his team came off the sidelines

  43. Hoggs41

    If we did end up just having three draft picks which three positions would people most want them to target?

    • AlaskaHawk

      I think the usual defensive end pick is a lost cause. I would go for a receiver, a center/guard, and a cornerback. In any order.

      • Paul Cook

        My order would be…

        1) Any DT or DE with upside potential
        2) Best CB or OT you can find
        3) Best CB or OT you can find

        I’m a little surprised that people have been focusing on OG rather than OT of late. We will need a replacement for Brown and possibly Shell soon enough, and we seem to have a little more depth in the interior line than the exterior, though such a thing could surely be characterized as precarious.

        But I’ll take just about any potential upside talent at OL, DL, CB, or even RB.

        FAcy is going to dictate a lot this year, though. Crazy year.

        • AlaskaHawk

          I agree with you that offensive tackles are harder to find and more valuable then interior linemen. But lately the Seahawks have been happy to pay veterans. Also we are talking about picks starting at the bottom of the second round, after the tackles have been picked thru. I see a guard as a lot safer pick, like Lewis was.

          • Paul Cook

            Basically anybody who pans out and performs as a true starter would be fine by me. So there’s that. 🙂

    • BobbyK

      Free agency will change things, but as of today I’d like:

      1. DT
      2. DE
      3. CB

      I like our starting DTs but the depth is horrible. The starters are playing too many snaps and if there was an injury – they’re screwed.

      I’d feel differently if Malik Taylor would see the field this year. But with Darrell McDowell looking like a bust, they can’t ignore another legit rusher because as of now Dunlap is the only one and age isn’t on his side and you can’t depend on Robinson developing to be that compliment to Dunlap.

      CB concern could/would be my top concern most years, that just shows how bad the state of the DL still is.

      • Big Mike

        I see what you did there (and I liked it).

  44. Rob Staton

    Sherman says he’s unlikely to return to San Fran…


    • Paul Cook

      Sherm’s a smart guy. He’s probably looked at the team’s aggregate numbers closely enough to know that as a 32 year old he can’t expect them to pony up for his services again.

      Yeah…he’d be a nice stopgap for us talent-wise and leadership-wise. I think he still has a home here.

      We’ll see.

    • CaptainJack

      Not thrilled with that idea in general. He’s still a bit of a head ache inducing player.

      • Rob Staton

        Is he? We’ve heard very little from him over the last three years. He’s been a model of professionalism and leadership in San Fran.

        I think Sherm and the Seahawks were right to part after 2017. It was best for both parties. But a reunion in 2021 makes a lot of sense. Seattle has a massive issue at corner and needs a proven, legit, scheme expert who can still play at a high level.

        • CaptainJack

          Injuries marred his season this year, likely to be an issue next year as well. Got burned badly in the Super Bowl. I think the better solution is a younger player, either a later round draft pick or an under the radar free agent pick up.

          • Rob Staton

            They haven’t drafted a late round corner who’s worked out in years.

            All of their outside the scheme additions seem to flop.

            Sherman is proven in the scheme and while he’s had injuries, so has half of Seattle’s team. I’d rather take my chances on Sherm than rely on a R5 rookie.

    • BobbyK

      Would love to have him back!

    • BruceN

      Just the other day I heard Lynch saying he wants Sherm to stay a 49er. We’ll see. I wouldn’t mind a reunion if he brings the same attitude as Marshawn. He’s been a good leader and a teammate for the Niners. Much more quiet than his time in Seattle.

      • Rob Staton

        Well Sherman is saying it’ll take a miracle.

  45. Denver Hawker

    Isaiah Wilson suspended for violating team rules. Rough first year for that kid.

    • CaptainJack

      All the reports on Jordyn Brooks predraft seemed to mention his maturity level.
      May be a good thing to continue to screen for, because even if he hasn’t been amazing, he’s been level headed, on the field, and contributes when he can.

      • Darnell

        Yep, this offseason/season, perhaps more so than others, there was significant value in bringing mature “grown men” into the program. And you see that with Lewis and Brooks being ready to play on an 8-3 team without much offseason programming. To a lesser extent, Deejay and Freddie being trusted to play speaks well of them too.

  46. BoiseSeahawk

    Quick mock on Draft Network:

    58. Marvin Wilson, DT Florida State
    127. Malcolm Koonce, EDGE Buffalo
    166. Ambry Thomas, CB Michigan
    230. Aaron Banks, OL Notre Dame

  47. JD

    Rob and others,

    What do you make of the timing of the Sherman not likely to re-sign news? Seems odd in the middle of the season when they are still in the playoff hunt.

    Props to Rob for bringing this up as a possibility with a very detailed article.

    • charlietheunicorn

      My read is he is trying to keep his profile high, so when Saleh goes to Detriot… he gets 1 more fat deal.

    • Rob Staton

      I think he was just asked a question about it and he answered honestly.

      However, I think a reunion is in the offing. It makes sense for both parties.

    • BruceN

      The Niners have communicated they want him back and are looking into extending him. It’ll be interesting to see where he ends up.

  48. charlietheunicorn

    Rob, did you have any thoughts you wanted to share about Diego Armando Maradona passing away recently. He certainly changed the world in 1986 WC.

    • Rob Staton

      My dad once stayed in a hotel in Argentina. He heard a load of noise in the next room. Shouting and arguing. He stuck his head out of the door to see what was going on. Maradona was stood there in the corridor, stark bollock naked.

    Giants’ QB Colt McCoy is expected to start Sunday against the Seahawks in place of the injured Daniel Jones, per source. Jones still is recovering from a hamstring injury, and the Giants also promoted practice-squad QB Clayton Thorson to the active roster for Sunday’s game.

    • Lewis

      Turf toe sounds innocuous, but it isn’t. They should rest him. Let Dallas get a few more plays. Though I guess they expect Penny back soon, but they could have put Hyde on IR now to get him back that much faster.

  50. Denver Hawker

    DeVonta Smith is a top 5 talent.

      • charlietheunicorn

        6’1″ 175, seems a tad small … normally guys who are 6’3″ or 6″4″ 220 go high in the draft.
        Not doubting his ability, but normally the NFL FOs are looking for physical freaks.

        • Volume12

          My only concern w/ him is if he can play thru contact. I have him & Chase neck & neck for WR1 though.

  51. David K

    Kyler Gordon is a true sophomore and is not eligible for the 2021 draft.

    • Rob Staton

      He played in four games as a true freshman in 2018.

      He’s been at Washington for three years.

      He is eligible.

  52. Sea Mode

    So, what you guys feeling for the game today? We gonna make it a struggle or just put Clipboard Jesus away early…?

    • Sea Mode

      *Not the real clipboard Jesus, of course, I mean just a career backup, which it seems we somehow always find a way to struggle against…

      • Big Mike

        Workman-like, mostly comfortable but unspectacular win
        .really went out on a limb there didn’t I? 😀

    • Rob Staton

      Probably will be unnecessarily messy and close but I’m anticipating the most straight forward win of the season so far with no need for any fourth quarter headaches.

    • TomLPDX

      Just for once, I’d like to see 35-6 win where we just score quickly and cruise to a victory. A guy can dream! Probably be more like what Rob described though. I just hope nobody gets hurt.

      • Sea Mode

        Exactly. I think we’re long overdue for a blowout win, but we all know PC loves those 4th-quarter nail-biters so he can give his speech afterwards in the locker room… 😜

      • Mick

        Best thing to happen today is that everyone walks off healthy. Not worried about the outcome, we could even rest Dunlap and Carson if need be. I’d also consider giving Geno Smith a couple snaps in the last quarter just to be on the safe side corona-wise.

        • Gary

          Just once in my lifetime: A clean game, no penalties, no injuries, no wasted timeouts, dominate time of possession, long sustained drives, 75-80% third down conversion rate, offence rediscovers Tyler Lockett and TEs, good balance of run and pass, no fourth quarter drama, and cruise to a 30-point victory. Dare to dream!

  53. Sea Mode

    Per Rapoport:

    This past Wednesday, Clowney quietly underwent surgery to repair his left meniscus, a procedure that requires months of rehab and knocks him out for the remainder of the season, sources say.


    This surgery was done on Clowney’s left knee, while previously he underwent successful microfracture surgery on his right knee. This one is also said to be straight-forward with no additional issues.

    For the Titans, it closes the book on a 2020 signing that didn’t work out as all parties had hoped. Clowney was paid $13 million for eight games and no sacks, though he was disruptive when he was on the field.


  54. swedenhawk

    Was looking through the SDB archives a bit today Rob. Have you written up FSU’s Josh Kaindoh? I haven’t really been following him. But as a former 5-star recruit, he seems like he has the length, athleticism, and upside the Seahawks would be looking for, but in the middle/late rounds.

    • Rob Staton

      I haven’t. He didn’t test well at SPARQ incidentally, despite the 5-star status.

  55. John_s

    Javonte Williams is a RB I really like. Ridiculous balance, low center of gravity, continually breaks tackles. Excellent vision.

  56. Big Mike

    I’ve been meaning to drop a comment about the end of your Seahawks versus Giants preview Podcast Rob. Your insistence that we must beat the Rams is absolutely spot on. I am sick to death of losing to them and looking badly in the process. If this team really wants to compete for a Super Bowl they are going to have to beat the Rams in the regular season and quite possibly again in the playoffs. Also, very little chance for the 1 seed with another loss imo.

  57. Happy Hawk

    Clowney out for the year with a season ending injury. Also Richard Sherman on record as saying he is a FA in March probably won’t return to SF next year. Penny coming back next week and Taylor most likely out until next year.

    • Big Mike

      Who’s this Taylor you speak of?
      Oh, you mean Malik Taylor……….or is it Darrell McDowell?

    Rob, I know we don’t have the draft capital; but have you had the chance to watch Malik Willis of Liberty. I would love to have someone to learn behind Wilson. Phenomenal athlete with a great arm.

    Also while I think Kylin Hill is a fit, what about Elijah Dotson similar player just a smaller package; seams to be a guy who can do it all. He really seems to like contact.

    A corner I’ve been watching is Allie Green, and
    Green showed well vrs Oklahoma State. Not 4.4 speed but seems to cover well in press and zone.
    Robert Rochell also seems like he might fit and he is fast.

    Any thoughts

  60. Big Mike

    Jets leading the Raiders. Would love to see them win so they could relax and not worry about going 0-16 and then not care so much next week.

    The Seahawks’ inactives vs. the Giants:
    RT Brandon Shell, RT Cedric Ogbuehi, G Phil Haynes, DE Jonathan Bullard and RB Travis Homer.

    Put Dunlap and Hyde on pitch counts.. call it a day. Getting out of the game healthy is the most important thing right now. Get offense on track/balanced attack and maintain defensive improvements also are secondary objectives.

    • cha

      Jamarco Jones, time to shine.

      • Big Mike

        Not exactly going out on a limb here but expect Jemarco will be better than Cedric was last week.

    • AlaskaHawk

      Every year it’s a new offensive line. Two new players out of five, and a center that never started for more than a couple games. Now that the two right tackles have gotten injured, there will be more new players on the line. Just for once – I would like to see the offense line be put together with some solid players and continuity from year to year. Russell deserves better, and so do the running backs. End of rant!

      • DC

        To my eye test, the OL has been serviceable. Not near the liability that they’ve been over the last 4-5 years. Maybe the NFL recognized the league wide OL horror show & decided to ‘de-criminalize’ offensive holding.

        • charlietheunicorn

          Ifedi with his 18 penalties leaving the team and Lewis being added at RG with minimal errors and working with Shell as a good 2 man right side (RG/RT) are the difference. Perhaps all the false start penalties….. or lack of them, is the real story.

          • AlaskaHawk

            The story is whether Shell can come back, how long Lupati will stay in, and whether the rest of the line will stay healthy. Even if you think this line is serviceable, I bet they change/lose two more starters over the off season.

    Neal….a strong play on the TE to make a tough throw….

  90. RIP Sonics

    Made me go back and check when I saw Phillips is #15 on Miami this year because #15 on Miami last year was an absolute stud. I think he opted out due to COVID 19 concerns but I wonder if he will declare as a Rs. So this year or if he can without playing this year. DE Gregory Rousseau (6-7/265/R. So.) – 15.5 sacks last year as a freshman. Jumps off the screen when you watched Miami last year.
    The other dude I really like in the ACC is #11 on Virginia. Charles Snowden (6-7/240/Sr) – He shows up every where on the field. Long and rangy, long arms, great sifting through traffic, elite acceleration, potential as coverage LB, elite college pass rusher. He just looks like a Seahawk. Could line up as LEO or SAM. Seems to have some limitation in the run game which would be a concern drafting him.
    The TE on Virginia is also a stud. #87 TE Tony Poljan (6-7/265/Sr. 2021). This dude makes plays in every game. Former basketball player and quarterback in high school. Great body control and physical blocker. Lines up at FB at times lifting DE and LB in the run game then makes a catch down field in double coverage. Made a play against miami that was crazy getting his foot in bounds in the back of the end zone. Then against North Carolina he held on to a ball over the middle through two big shots from Safety and Corner and twisted to get in the end zone looking unaffected. I would love to see him in our offense.
    Another Miami guy that jumps out who I am curious about is the Safety #5 Amari Carter. The dude just looks like Kam out there at times but other games he is invisible. Such is the position of Safety I suppose but wonder if you have any thoughts on him watching Miami Rob. Thanks for this blog!
    Happy Holidays!

      No worries, the announcers already dubbed him the best player on the field, so he must be…

      • Kenny Sloth

        He is.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Yeah he’s been lockdown so far. NY not looking his way.

  94. Tony

    Not sure why some of yall are so negative so early. I havent seen anything freaking me out yet. After 4 total drives, its to early to be nervous.

    • Troy

      Need Diggs to play well for this defense to be at least average, very encouraging

    • Volume12


      • Mark Musiitwa

        I just won’t understand why seahawks fans don’t like Diggs. One of the best safeties. How much seams or post as he allowed? Imagine how bad this defense would be without him before you start criticizing him.

        • Matthew

          Yes totally agree. I think people criticize him like he is a bad safety. I just don’t understand. Jamal Adams’ blitzing lets down his grade on PFF. We would be giving up so much deep plays without him. Just look how exposed we were against New England and in 2019 without him

          • Rob Staton

            They didn’t seem to be giving up huge deep plays in 2018 when he wasn’t here and they had a good pass rusher.

            Here’s the discussion on Adams. It’s purely this. Adams is a fantastic blitzer. That is an asset, without question. However, the need to have him constantly in attack mode often leaves issues at the second and third level. The Carroll system isn’t used to having a player play this way. You have to have him blitzing though because if he doesn’t, that’s akin to asking Russell Wilson not to scramble.

            There’s a give and take with Adams that simply exists. And the question for the end of the season is whether or not that give and take is worth about $18m a year.

    • Matt

      Giants are atrocious with a backup QB and we are *allegedly* a Super Bowl contender. Not freaking out, but we look like a big pile of meh, yet again.

      • Tony

        We are moving ball decently. Defense hasnt been attrocious. Its the nfl, jets almost beat raiders.

        • Matt

          Honest question, do you expect this team to do anything in the playoffs? Because the team we are seeing right now is going to have an early vacation.

      Playing for a 2 pt safety

  99. Matt

    I’m sorry…I just can’t handle Pete anymore. 4th on the 37 and we opt to punt? Jesus…hope you guys are ready for 1 and done in the playoffs.

  100. Big Mike

    3 total rushing attempts so far. I don’t like this game plan

    • Tony

      Carson looks so good too. Why isnt he more in the gameplan.

      • Pran

        Both Carson and Hyde are not 100%..protecting. They can’t trust anyone else..sad.

  101. charlietheunicorn

    The DBs (SEA) are playing much farther off the WRs (NYG) than I thought they were going to….. a ton of green grass to work with…

  102. cha

    Bobby get your hands up

  103. Kenny Sloth

    Seahawks twitter melting down bc of that punt from the 37 😅

    Somebody just called Pete Carroll Jason Garrett with Russell Wilson and I-

    • Volume12

      lol good lord man

    • Tony

      Twitter in general is the biggest problem with the world today. I dont need every random persons instant thought or opinion. 99% is uninformed biased bs with little to no knowledge of any issue.

      • Kenny Sloth

        Thats crazy bc you sound like a tweet rn

    • Big Mike

      Thing is, it would have worked out really well because we would have had good field position but we had to hold on the punt return and there goes the field position

  104. Rob Staton

    The Seahawks are abysmal on third downs on offense.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Is this not a staple of our offense?

      • Lewis

        Used to be

  105. Kenny Sloth


    • charlietheunicorn


  106. AlaskaHawk

    I”m seeing quicker tackling in the secondary. Next step is teaching them to punch the ball out.

  107. Lewis

    Thank goodness the defense showed up. Hopefully the O mashed their way to the stadium at some point.

  108. Volume12


  109. Rik

    This whole offensive game plan has been awful. Russ looks slow and confused back there.

    • Kenny Sloth


    • Big Mike

      3 running plays with a healthy Chris Carson. Makes 0 sense

      • Kenny Sloth

        Is he though.

  110. charlietheunicorn

    I still find it hard to believe, no secondary player (SS/FS of CB) has ever had more than 8 sacks in a season…..

  111. Robbie

    I’m pretty tired of David Moore as the punt returner

    • Tony

      Atleast hes sure handed.

      • Robbie

        He is, but the delayed run every time drives me nuts

    • Kenny Sloth

      Why! He’s dope. He gets upfield, is really shifty, doesnt put the ball on the ground. I imagine we were expecting to use (God I cant remember the name of that 4.3 runner we picked up at WR) back there.

      • Kenny Sloth


      • Hawkdawg

        The trouble is that he does NOT get upfield. Way too much hesitation. Once on the move, he is good and shifty. But he takes too long to get going. Especially on kick-off returns, which is why they pulled him last week and put in Reed.

    • cha

      Agree. The tentativeness is frustrating. One cut and go David!

      I think he’s only doing it today because Reed is starting at CB.

  112. cha

    Lockett in the game. Whew

    Also looks like Dunlap is on a pitch count. Not playing every down.

  113. Rik

    Wilson is playing some hot garbage today.

    • Pran

      Which is last 5-6 weeks. He is never the same after that Cardinals loss. He took some big shots..

    • Rob Staton

      He’s been off for weeks.

      Looks a complete shell of the early season Wilson.

      Can’t help but wonder if all those picks and the total reliance on him has shaken his confidence or just knocked him off course.

      • Kenny Sloth

        He cant be 100% he took several beatings this season

        • Rob Staton

          Sure — because too much of it was on him.

          Cooking comes with a consequence, as does propping up a bad defense.

          Teams were teeing off.

    • Volume12

      Needs to find his rhythm

  114. Gary

    Fall on the ball Russ!

  115. Rob Staton

    I know we’re crap on third down but we don’t need to start fumbling or botching snaps.

  116. Rowdy

    Remember mvp russ? He’s been d jones ever sense

  117. Matt

    Russell is broken. Man…he’s been a legitimately meh QB since week 7. This is not good.

  118. Big Mike

    Once again the seahawks play down to the level of their competition. Just got a text from my wife who is not here at home and it syud ugly. She knows nothing about football and even she conceived this is ugly. I am so tired of this team never playing good football when the opportunity presents itself

  119. James Cr.

    Our offense looks like crap. Do we not have any ideas?

  120. AlaskaHawk

    Is it too early to say the defense is playing better than the offense today? Glad Seahawks dodged the injury bullet with Lockett, that would have sucked.

    I thought they used Reed last week for returns? I like him better than Moore.

    • Rob Staton

      Offense is playing like trash

    • Lewis

      It’s the absolute truth. Defense playing solid so far.

  121. Tony

    Freebie for giants. Nice.

  122. Volume12

    No catch. Good challenge

  123. Big Mike

    Russell Wilson is shell shocked

    • pdway

      why though? hes had pressure his whole career. unless hes hurt – i dont get it.

  124. Tony

    Well thats an easy challenge. Shame we gotta waste one there.

  125. Sea Mode

    Ok, we’re gonna win that challenge, but really worth it for a 6 yd gain on 1st down…?

    • Rob Staton

      That was my immediate reaction.

      What’s the point?

      • Kenny Sloth

        Make them earn it, Rob. Whats the point of keeping a challenge in your back pocket and letting them have the first?

        Great challenge.

        • Volume12

          *nods head about challenge*

        • Lewis

          I’m with Rob, that could cause problems later. You lose one later and that’s it. I think you should not lose a challenge if you win it, then that would be a good call.

          • Kenny Sloth

            I see your point, but in 30 seconds you wont be able to challenge anything anyway

            Do challenges not reset at half?

            • charlietheunicorn

              1 per half, 2 successful = 3rd bonus challenge

            • Rob Staton

              “Do challenges not reset at half?”


              • Kenny Sloth

                I guess it was probably gonna be the last chance to use one for this half then, huh.

                • Rob Staton


                  What if something dumb happened before the end of the half? A huge refereeing error? Or even two?

                  You have to make calculated decisions. Trying to overturn about six yards is a situation you just eat.

                  • Rob Staton

                    By the way, it’s not one per half.

                    It’s two challenges for the whole game then an extra one if a challenge is successful.

                  • Lewis

                    Exactly. Not worth the risk of needing it later to save six yards.

                  • Kenny Sloth

                    Thanks for clarifying.

                    These things do happen, but it was only like 90 seconds before the 2 minute warning and it was likely he would win the challenge

        • Rob Staton

          Because you only get so many challenges.

      • Pran

        Pete is challenging Giants to score 3 points. Offense will play ultra conservative.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Yes? What do you mean, earn every yard.

  126. pdway

    what is going on w russell?

    • Big Mike

      Been hit too many times. Now seeing ghosts.

      • pdway

        but this isnt his worst o line – he’s been getting hit for years.

        its weird. his focus seems off to me.

  127. cha

    Carson 6 carries for 42 yards for a 7.0 /carry against the #5 ranked rushing D.

    Nice to have him back.

    • AlaskaHawk

      Yes it is. Seahawks thrive on that powerful back.

    • cha

      Runs of 11, 11, 7, 4, 7, 2

  128. charlietheunicorn

    Good thing the Giants offensive play calling has been kind of garbage in this second quarter

  129. charlietheunicorn


  130. Gary

    This is where real teams close out the half with an actual drive.

  131. Kenny Sloth

    C’mon now Seahawks get me lit daddy Metcalf

  132. charlietheunicorn

    6 man box, not rushing….. : /

    • charlietheunicorn

      Hell, I would take a fly sweep at this point lol

  133. Big Mike

    Mike Iupati having a shit day

    • Big Mike

      For the love if God THROW THE FOOTBALL AWAY

  134. Rob Staton

    This offense. My word.

    No imagination. No tempo. Very little execution. Quarterback completely off his game.

    • Kenny Sloth


    • AlaskaHawk

      I’m not sure if that was a screen or the innovative one man blocking offense.

      • Lewis

        Tv guys said it was a screen, which lines up with the linemen being downfield. Thing is, since Russel knows they are going downfield he CAN NOT hold the Ball. When the play blew up, he should have taken off running immediately.

    • Big Mike

      “Horrible” would be a kind adjective

  135. pdway

    cant remember russell looking this bad.

    indecisive. inaccurate. dont know what to say really.

  136. Kenny Sloth

    Wilson looks…. Not Good.

  137. Leonardo

    Maybe he’s shell-shocked from all those picks but it’s like Russ doesn’t trust his eyes anymore, really anxiety-inducing to watch

  138. Sea Mode

    Throw the ball, Russ.

  139. charlietheunicorn

    Giants need to go hard play action on second down

  140. KennyBadger

    Rattled Russ. Commit to Carson in the second half.

  141. James Cr.

    I would go hurry up 2nd half.

  142. Big Mike

    This team has no shot at a Super Bowl none zero zilch zip nada

    • Big Mike

      Not with Wilson playing like this

    • Tony

      These over reactions are great. Go watch our super bowl seasons. You will see close games vs bad teams.

      • Matt

        You will also see dominant wins…which this team does not have.

  143. Matt

    Probably gonna end up 9-3 after today and just feel like the season is already over. Just a weird year. Russell having a miserable season after an incredible 4-5 week run. Amazing how far he has fallen.

    • AlaskaHawk

      They could finish 12-4 at end of season – but they are so flawed!!! At least the defense is coming together.

      • Matt

        I’ll be completely shocked if this team wins a single playoff game this year.

    • Kenny Sloth

      I’ll be the saddest fan of a 9-3 team ever

  144. gary

    Imagine if you’d paid $300 bucks for a ticket to watch this garbage.

  145. Volume12

    That is some kind of play from Prez

  146. Volume12


  147. charlietheunicorn

    Holy F***

  148. BobbyK

    Russ isn’t cooking anything anymore.

    • Pran

      Can he take pay cut.. could really use some $ to beef up other positions

  149. Rob Staton

    How did Deejay Dallas not score there???

    • Kenny Sloth

      It’s a difficult play.

  150. Rokas

    DJ Dallas. Geez.

  151. charlietheunicorn

    DJ Reed 😀

    • Rob Staton

      He should take every return. Miles better than David Moore.

  152. Sea Mode

    How did DJ Dallas let that squirt away. It was right in the bread basket!

  153. Big Mike

    Is that DJ Dallas that cost us 5 points by not being able to just fall on the football?

  154. Bmseattle

    Gift wrapped for him.

  155. KennyBadger

    Nyan Real.

    • Volume12

      Him & Reed are gamers

      • KennyBadger

        Mos def

  156. Kenny Sloth

    Rookie stuff from Dallas and Hart. You expect it

  157. Dand393

    How do you make such a mess out of a good play

  158. pdway

    Reed gonna break one eventually. he motors.

  159. Gary

    Geno Smith anyone?

  160. Matt

    Russell is broken. Seriously…there has to be something wrong with him.

    • John_s

      This is typical winter time Russ. The last quarter of the season Russ always falls off.

  161. Leonardo

    That was the first half of football in Russell Wilson’s career.

  162. Sea Mode

    What a waste…

  163. Henry Taylor

    5-0 at halftime, who had that?

    • charlietheunicorn

      10.5 point spread

  164. Leonardo

    *Worst not first haha, damn autocorrect

    • Big Mike

      We knew what you meant. We are watching too.

  165. KennyBadger

    So Russ needs to be more accurate on his throwaways.

    • Pran

      Russ needs some good practice on throw aways.

  166. CaptainJack

    The defense and offense have completely switched roles. Jamal Adams and Jordyn Brooks both look fantastic. Russ looks concussed at best.

    • CaptanJack

      And to be fair the defense is playing Colt McCoy.

    • Lewis

      And Brooks could have had a pick early

  167. Big Mike

    This team’s offense is completely broken

  168. Rik

    Man, talk about ending the half with a thud.

  169. TheOtherJordan

    Easiest TD you’ll ever score in the League and he drops it.

  170. Pran

    Shout out to Bevell for 1st win as a HC. Hope he learned some from Pete.

  171. charlietheunicorn

    Game has felt like watching a controlled crash

    • Tony

      D and ST are playing well.

  172. Mick

    God, how do we break Ramsey and Donald, Sherman and Bosa, Packers and Chiefs, if we can’t score a td in two quarters with Giants? At least the D holds.

  173. Kenny Sloth

    Russ 12/20 ~100 yards 5ypa and a fumble

    Not the worst but we’ve seen what he can do. What a disappointment

  174. Big Mike

    It must be the rain that’s causing the problems for Wilson
    Oh wait 🙁

  175. Tony

    Im really surprised so many arent used to these games. The hawks/rw do this 4 or 5 times a year. The offense takes 2-3 qtrs to show up. Then turn it on late. Is it annoying? Yes. By were up 5-0 at half time. Not down 17-3, this isnt a precursor to anything in playoffs or what this team will look like in a month. Just get wins. Get division and high seed. Rw is still great, he just goes thru these funks every year. Lets not read into every play and try to predict future outcomes.

    Playoffs are about hot teams. Just be set up by then.

    • Kenny Sloth

      I just be hoping for magic every time this team takes the field because we’ve seen what theyre capable of.

      • Tony

        Me too. But this is the same thing we see every year. We win ugly a ton. But hardly ever collapse and go belly up.

        Get to the dance. Hope the magic shows there. For god sakes, crippled manning won a sb, flacco won a sb. Crazy stuff happens there

        • Rob Staton

          Get to the dance. Hope the magic shows there. For god sakes, crippled manning won a sb, flacco won a sb. Crazy stuff happens there

          How many years do we have to say this though?

          And how many times over the last few years has the ‘crazy stuff’ been a massive half-time deficit and a failed attempt at a second half comeback.

          I want to see clean football for once against weaker opponents and comfortable wins.

          • TomLPDX

            Not tonight unfortunately. All I wanted was an easy win…never happens with the Hawks…

          • Tony

            I can only watch the games. I have no control over the handlings. I would love to have a dominant team or a clean on all 3 phases team. But in reality getting to the dance and winning there is always the plan.

            The fact we are, whether its easy or not, a perenial playoff team. That is something. Do i want more? Hell yeah. But in reality this is who we are. I just refuse to throw in the towel and say its over and we dont have a chance.

    • AlaskaHawk

      The Seahawks need to fall behind so they can have another 4th quarter come from behind win. It’s so much more exciting then. I mean they are trying to keep the score close.

    • Big Mike

      Of course hope you are right but I don’t see it.

      • Tony

        I take complete 1st half with blah feelings. Cause ive seen rw do impossible things. Its much better staying calm, until the 4th. And id be freaking if we were 6-5 vs 8-3. But i hope we win these few games vs bottom teams.

    • Matt

      Appreciate the optimism but this team has been underwhelming all year and is fueled exclusively by a terrible schedule and some lucky wins. I have no idea what you’ve seen this year that leads you to believe this team has any shot in the playoffs. RW has been average to bad since the Bye. The Defense has looked good twice – against the 2 worst offenses in the league. When we play good teams, we have looked clearly inferior (Rams, Bills).

      I don’t know…I have no hope, but I do hope I’m wrong. I’ve yet to watch a single game this year and think, “this team has a chance to win it all.”

      • Tony

        Ive yet to see a full team win. When all 3 phases show up. Thats it really. I see flashes every game all around. But thats the key, we are 8-3 and havent played great football all around.

        I wouldnt say this team should be in SB contender talk. But all that noise is just talk. Wake me for playoffs. And hopefully we show up better there. Thats all that matters.

  176. cha

    Defense pitching a shutout. Really only the one good drive that ended with an INT.

    Special teams is special.

    Offense not even batting their weight.

    • Tony

      Championship teams pick each other up when one unit is struggling.

      Im going full silver lining today lol.

  177. James P Kupihea

    How do you miss three face masks (AT THE POINT OF ACTION)

  178. Big Mike

    Remember when this offense was dropping well over 30 on a Bill Bellachick defense? That seems so long ago…

  179. cha

    Great run for Carson and you see him protect the ball as he enters traffic.

  180. Rokas

    Looks like Lockett cheated on that concussion check

  181. Big Mike

    Utterly and completely broken

  182. Rob Staton

    This offense is completely broken.

    • Trevor

      The Cards showed how to beat Russ in game #1 in the second half and now all teams are doing it and the Hawks can’t figure it out.

  183. pdway

    not only does russell look bad, the whole offensive scheme looks stale.

  184. Mick

    This one’s on Schotty…

  185. Big Mike

    Very possible this team loses its last 3 games of the regular season

  186. Trevor

    My biggest concern heading down the stretch is Russ not the Defense, I would never have dreamed that was possible, he has been brutal for a month and half now,

  187. Rob Staton

    Meanwhile the Rams are spanking the Cardinals with a heady mix of physical, productive running and complementary passing.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Ive never heard anyone describe football like you 😂😂

      • Gary

        ” … a heady mix of physical, productive running and complementary passing.”

        Sigh … if only.

  188. John

    Is it a coincidence that the offense sucks playing against a good defense and the Defense is playing great against a bad offense.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Um can you not

    • Big Mike

      There playing against a team that is 4-7.

    • pdway

      we are supposed to have a good defense.

      this isnt the ‘86 Bears we’re playing

  189. Big Mike

    Seattle is in extreme danger of losing this football game

  190. KennyBadger

    Stink comes by it honestly.

    • Big Mike


  191. Rob Staton

    Defense still pants

  192. Big Mike


    • Big Mike

      Mis-post. Nothing to be happy about today

  193. Hawkdawg

    Embarrassing defense. The bed-sh*tting has now spread to the D.

  194. Rob Staton

    The defense is playing Colt McCoy.

    The Giants are going to try and run.

    It took three plays to score on an 80-yard drive.

    • Tony

      Safe to say that drive was a punch to the face of D. Still, this game is on offense not shitting itself.

    • James Kupihea

      Carlos had some nice soft hands on his catch. I’m sure that’ll go overlooked with so much slop to admire everywhere else.

      • James Kupihea

        commented on the wrong thread ><.

  195. Tony

    Mid 3rd qtr, down 3.

    Those crying its over, maybe we try playing another 20mins. See what happens.

    • Big Mike

      How about we come out and put away an inferior team from the beginning? How about were playing a team with Colt mccoy at quarterback?

      • Tony

        Colt mccoy isnt beating us. The giants d is doing the heavy lifting. Which has been very solid this year.

        • Big Mike

          Well over 30 against a Bill Belichick defense.

  196. Henry Taylor

    Ok time to show up offense, I’m starting to get concerned.

  197. Pran

    Giants are now challenging Hawks to score 3 points.. times have changed.

  198. John

    Why does Tyler Lockett always look some clumsy when changing direction? Seattle needs a receiver that can make plays after the catch.

    • Bmseattle

      We also need to be able to run routes that are at least 5 yards downfield, on 3rd and 4.

  199. James Cr.

    Can anyone explain to me why we aren’t going hurry up an offense?

  200. Big Mike

    Completely and utterly broken

    • Pran

      No words to describe this disaster. Enough of Pete and Russ.

  201. icb12

    Wtf is that 4th down call?

    Good grief. It’s 6 “!!!!!

  202. Rob Staton

    Seahawks getting thoroughly out-coached yet again.

    • Pran

      Jason Garrett out coaching Schotty and Pete.. good grief.

  204. WallaSean

    Why do we not want to run the damn ball, way too cute with the playcalling on O today. Complete waste of a fine effort on D. The offense is wearing OUR defense down. WTF

  205. Rob Staton

    Now they’re getting out-coached and having their arses kicked.

    • Big Mike

      Utterly and completely on both accounts

  206. Big Mike

    Defence now falling apart as well.
    Hey guys they have Colt mccoy quarterback there going to run the football your getting beat by a team that you know what is coming

  207. Sea Mode

    This is sad.

  208. Mick

    I don’t blame the D at all for starting to crash, they held their ground and gave Wilson enough chances, now of course confidence is long gone.

  209. Bmseattle

    I’m waiting until Tony tells us when we can start worrying.

  210. Rob Staton

    This is pathetic

  211. James Cr.

    Losing at home to Colt McCoy? Season over.

    • James Kupihea

      Sir, this team can beat itself anywhere.

  212. Rob Staton

    I cannot believe how much shit I get for critiquing this team

    • Lewis

      You hater, you.

    • Chris J

      Someone needs to Rob. Feels like a typical ‘turn up and we’ll win’ attitude. Poor. Really poor.

    • charlietheunicorn

      8ater 😉

    • Tony

      Fully love the critiquing. Hate the fire pete, tear it down crying from many. But nobody should say this team isnt flawed.

  213. Sea Mode

    Well, there’s a little break, at least…

    Let’s get out there with some urgency. I’m so tired of Russ snapping the ball with 00 on the play clock every single time.

  214. Bmseattle

    I’d just start assuming they are being ironic.

  215. Mick

    Reality check time, too much talking about MVP and Super Bowl without enough to back it up.

      Mvp talked died week 8 and when has super bowl realistically ever been talked about?

  216. Gary

    It’s 4th down and 1 on a game-changing possession where you need to possess the ball and move the chains and answer their score, you profess to want a tough, smash-mouth identity, you have a healthy Chris Carson in your backfield, and you run a chickenshit finesse play to give the ball back to the Giants. Then they proceed to do to you exactly what you were too scared to do when you refused to run between the tackles. They deserved that result.

    • Big Mike

      VERY well said.

    • John_s

      But you’re supposed to let Russ cook

  217. Dinosaw

    The New York Giants….
    Colt mMcCoy,….
    At home…..

  218. Rowdy

    Wilson needs to be benched

  219. Trevor

    That sack is 100% on Russ.

    • Pran

      When he takes a sack.. you are a mile behind sticks already.

  220. Bmseattle

    “Look at the coverage!”…
    As Lockett is wide open downfield.

    • Sea Mode

      Swain too I think

    • Big Mike

      Yep, wide the hell open

  221. Pran

    I just can’t believe this from coaches.

    You had the chance to run in 1st half, score points and control game… no..we pass fail.
    Now fall behind and have to score in a hurry..no run fail.

  222. 12th chuck

    losing all aspects, and outcoached. this is the time of the year when your supposed to be playing your best

  223. David Ashton

    Cant believe what Im watching. Looks like a pub team

  224. Leonardo

    All the progress that Russ made in the last few years with Schotty has regressed, he’s back to peeling out of the back of the pocket, throwing off his back foot, hesitating. Maybe we need Schotty back on the sideline, not like he’s getting much insight from the booth anymore.

  225. Ian

    Fire Pete. This is unacceptable

    • Tony

      Makes sense. Lol

  226. Dm594

    Trade Russ plus 1 or 2 firsts to the first team overall and draft Lawrence. Wilson doesn’t have it anymore. It’s not in his heart. His family is first. Football is last on his list of priorities. Dudes washed up big time.

    • Big Mike

      We don’t have any 1st round draft choices until 2023

      • Dm594

        I mean Wilson and we get 1st overall and another 1st rounder in 2022

      • James Kupihea

        Will you come back to earth for a second…we can blame the entire team. Can we avoid crap that’s entirely unrealistic.

  227. Tony

    Times ticking hawks. Better do something quick.

  228. Bmseattle

    Jets would never, ever make that trade.

  229. CaptainJack

    Wow, after the beginning of this season, when the games were frustrating but thrilling, the games are now extraordinarily uninspiring and honestly boring.

    • CaptainJack

      Russ is making the wide receiver who the broncos had to trot out against the saints at QB look like a mix of Joe Montana and Dan Marino.

  230. Henry Taylor

    Yep, this ain’t our day.

  231. Tony

    Upset sunday hit us.

  232. TomLPDX

    I can’t watch this anymore…

  233. Sea Mode


  234. Rokas

    This is already sardonic. Not even mad.

  235. Tony

    We were due for it tho.

    • Big Mike

      Super Bowl level teams are never do for a game this bad

      • Tony

        Yes they do. Every year. No team isnt above themselves playing down to teams. Or dropping winnable games. Nfl parity is a thing.

  236. Scot04

    Seahawks offense definitely forgot to show up today

  237. Rowdy

    Big balls Pete should prove it by sending Wilson to the locker room

  238. Gary

    Good waste of a timeout. PLEASE FIRE PETE.

    • James Cr.

      Very very strange

  239. Pran

    Coaches and Russ has no clue……

  240. Tony

    Man i hope we show up here on out and the offense comes back. Schotty and RW need to fix this. Washington pass rush is going to be a fun day.

  241. Sea Mode

    A timeout on a FG attempt???

    • Pran

      Wouldn’t you agree Pete is trying something creative there..

    • Rokas

      Probably was precaucionary against fake kick.

  242. Gary

    Jets would be laughing all the way to the draft if we lose out.

    • Tony

      If we lose out, then theres some sweeping changes coming.

      • Gary

        Then I’ll be hoping we lose out.

        • Tony

          Well please root against us quietly to yourself. This is still a pro seahawk site.

          • Gary

            I am as pro-Seahawks as there is – I just don’t know how much more of this I can watch.

        • Big Mike

          Nope. Pete just signed a 5 yr extension.

          • Pran

            It won’t mean a thing if they want to move on..consider parting 🎁

  243. Matt

    Dream attic changes need to be made.

  244. TomLPDX

    Normally, 2 touchdowns down, 10 minutes to play…no problem, right. I’ll be surprised if they gain 10 yards total in the next 10 minutes

  245. Bmseattle

    We probably had 12 men on the field.

  246. Sea Mode

    Can we pls throw to DK?!

    • STTBM

      Dude has feet for hands.

      • Kenny Sloth

        I seen better hands on a snake 🐍

  247. Tony

    Rw is afraid to throw. So hesitant. Hes confused or thinking too much.

  248. charlietheunicorn

    Running out of RTs : /

  249. Big Mike

    Never thought I would say these words
    God we miss Brandon Shell

    • Bmseattle

      I said it several times last game.

      • JC3

        Sign another RT and drop Ogbluehi.

    • Tony

      Shell has been pretty solid this year. Definitely miss him. Down to our 4th RT now.

  250. Sea Mode

    Don’t give me hope…

    • Big Mike

      Totally on the D now

      • Tony

        No matter how bad Rw plays, this is the scariest thing any game.

  251. charlietheunicorn

    Someone earlier said 4th quarter 1 score game….. here you go

  252. Tony

    Need to play perfect here on out. Slim margin for error.

    • Big Mike


  253. cha

    Jamarco Jones groin injury – out for the game.

  254. Robbie

    About damn time!

  255. Rokas

    Wheeler looks like an out of shape Tight end.

    • Tony

      Its really luke willson.

  256. Kenny Sloth

    Yeah Diggsy!!!

  257. Tony

    Brooks been solid today. I definitely see the potential. Hope he grows to a great player.

  258. Rob Staton

    Jamal Adams beat in coverage on third down.

    • Big Mike

      At least the 2nd time today to whenever one else was blitzing

    • Mick

      If I were the reporter he bullied last week, I’d get him to press conference and ask him about his coverage.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Jamal Adams Coverage Watch 2020

      Media covering his play more thoroughly than he covers his man.

    • cha

      Allowing a 118 QB rating in coverage this year

  259. Big Mike

    Can’t afford to fail on too many more 3rd and longs

  260. Tony

    Oh man. D has to make a stop soon.

  261. Big Mike

    Must get a stop here in order to win the game

  262. Bmseattle

    Colt Mccoy…the ultimate test

    • Tony

      The gameplan im sure was dont make mistakes. This is on the run defense and all offense.

  263. Pran

    Worst 3rd down offense and defense.. how do you expect to win ?

  264. Tony

    This is game here. Unless you like potential hail mary prayers.

  265. charlietheunicorn

    Time to win the game.

  266. Mick

    If they win this, it’s just crazy.

  267. Big Mike

    PLEASE give Chad Wheeler help

  268. AlaskaHawk

    Time for Russell Wilson’s specialty – the 4th quarter comeback.

  269. Sea Mode

    Step it up, Russ.

  270. Bmseattle

    Timeout there?

  271. Rowdy

    Best pass russ threw all game

  272. Big Mike

    Staring down his receiver and a terrible choice very lucky

  273. Sea Mode


  274. Rowdy

    Russ can’t blame anyone but himself, he’s had plenty of time all game

    • Rokas

      Not sure if we can make that judgement without watching all 22. Did not seem that WRs were open all day.
      But his inability to get rid of the ball is pathologic.

    • Sea Mode

      Defense stepped up except for a couple brain farts in run defense. Offense was lethargic. Abandoned the run (which was working on the perimeter) and they teed off their pass rush against our 4th-string RT.

  275. Big Mike

    Did not deserve to win this football game anyway. And absolutely miserable performance

  276. charlietheunicorn

    Back up (RT) and Back up LG in game at the end….. yikes

  277. Mick

    It would have been unfair to hide this awful game under a lucky win again. We’ve been winning a lot of lucky games and the huge problems that we have don’t get properly exposed. Not that anyone in the coaching staff is doing anything about them.

  278. Jordan E

    Russ is like overrated now. Wow. Loss to NYG team without Daniel Jones

  279. Big Mike

    Make sure you write only positive things this week Rob. We wouldn’t want to upset anybody by saying the team played poorly. Maybe you talk about Pete’s shoes.

  280. Matt

    This team will lose 3 of the next 4. What a horrifically awful showing. This thing is about to go off the rails.

    • Big Mike

      Yep, 9-7

  281. Tony

    Own it russ and schotty. This is on you and the offense. 8-4 now. Gotta win out for division.

    • Matt

      The whole team was bad. Defense shouldn’t get any props in this one.

      • Tony

        Defense allowed 2 bad drives. Held during the puntfest the offense put forth.

        • charlietheunicorn

          Had to hold up on some short fields. Defense was not the issue.

      • pdway

        D was fine. Allowed one drive all day, and that basically all on one long run.

        The other TD was after we f’d up the 4th down play, an the FG was when they held the Giants to a 3 and out after the INT.

        It’s not the world’s biggest accomplishmnet, the Giants ain’t the Chiefs – but this loss is fully on the offense not being good enough.

        • Matt

          Didn’t say the defense lost the game. Offense clearly did. Commenting that the defense wasn’t that good.

  282. Pran

    I hate Pete’s strategy to the core.. it worked when you had legendary defense to keep offense in game. You have worst defense in entire league and steadily regressing offense..this is the ultra conservative shitty game you call. Suck it up and quit.

    Flush the game and season down the toilet and plan for next season with everyone fired.

  283. Rokas

    It’s on DJ Dallas, he corrals the ball, and it’s overtime!:))

    • 12th chuck

      I hope he is not on the “hands” s.t.

  284. pdway

    defense did enough today. russell played like a bottom half of the league QB today – there’s no other way to say it. indecisive all day. not as good w his feet as we’re used to.

    today was the day my expectations for this team finally crashed. still thought we had a hope of coming out of the NFC.

    a really poor performance by the offense and our QB, and if those two things aren’t there – we’re just an average team.

  285. Tony

    Backup qbs own pete. Lol. Its the mullens, the mccoys, the mannions that always upset us.

  286. Leonardo

    Compare that final drive to our drive against Minnesota a few months ago, Russ has just completely lost the plot. On those last two plays he left Lockett out to dry in double coverage while Swain and Dissly were running free. Then he fled a clean pocket, ran 15 yards back, and chucked a moon ball. The scary thing is his second half decline is becoming a trend now, we saw it last year too.

    • 12th chuck

      I seen that as well. Doug Baldwin left because in part for same reasons .leaving guys wide open alot.
