Curtis Allen’s week eight watch notes (vs Browns)

This is a guest article by Curtis Allen…

In the NFL there are always teams who start well but cannot sustain their success and just as quickly as they rose, they fade back to the pack to make way for the real contenders.

Two such candidates face off Sunday as the Seahawks host the visiting Browns. Both teams sit at 4-2. With wins they are poised to join the top of their divisions. Both have designs on more than just making the playoffs.

However, looking beyond just their record shows they are not on as solid a ground as it would appear. A return to the earth could be in store for both if they do not take a big step forward.

The Browns have the NFL’s best defense statistically so far this year. Jim Schwartz has proven to be a great fit as a defensive coordinator for them. They dedicated themselves to building around Myles Garrett and that has made him even more effective. His game last week against the Colts was as dominant a performance as we have seen from a defensive player this season. He personally accounted for 10 points with a blocked field goal and a sack in the end zone that resulted in a touchdown.

They have really struggled at the quarterback spot though. Deshaun Watson has been injured an ineffective (then injured again). They have turned to Dorian Thompson-Robinson and P.J. Walker. Both have faired badly in the role and weapons the Browns have collected like Amari Cooper and David Njoku have not been utilized as much as they could.

On offense, they have relied on a strong running game and plenty of creativity to offset the lack of talent in the game’s most important position. The defense has been so good, they have nearly made up the difference on offense.

Cleveland is also the beneficiary of two major end-of-game miscues in as many weeks. San Francisco missed an easily make-able 41-yard field goal try at the end of their game, sealing a Browns victory. Last week the game looked like a Browns loss until the referees explicably flagged pass interference on a throw that was headed out of the end zone and nearly into the third row of seats and the Browns capitalized on a first-and-goal at the one-yard line to win it.

They could easily be 2-4 at this point.

The same could be said for the Seahawks. They appear in good shape at 4-2 with an improved defense and plenty of weaponry on offense. Yet three of those four wins have come against teams that will very likely be picking in the top-five of the draft next year.

Last week’s 20-10 victory over Arizona was not nearly as comfortable as it should have been. The offense once again had execution problems as well as three turnovers. The defense – while only conceding 10 points – struggled to maintain their discipline, with the edges failing to maintain their integrity at critical moments and tackling being a problem at times.

That leads of our first critical watch point in this matchup of two talented but flawed teams.

Stand Your Ground on Defense

The Seahawks are rightly proud of their rush defense, as they have consistently been near the top of the league in yards conceded per carry. Right now, they are #3 in the NFL at 3.5 yards per attempt.

It should be noted, however, that this defense conceded 5.08 yards per carry last week to a Cardinals offense that features one of the worst passing quarterbacks in the NFL. Joshua Dobbs completed 58.8% of his passes, was sacked four times and finished the game with 146 passing yards. The point being — run defense was a known key before they even stepped on the field and they still struggled with it.

I point out Dobb’s performance as a way to highlight that is probably what the Browns are expecting from P.J. Walker in this game. Once again, the Seahawks benefit by playing one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL today. Walker’s PFF grade is currently 29.5. He has played in two games as a practice squad elevation. If Walker has even a mediocre game at quarterback, it will be a career best.

To say they are going to feature the run is a massive understatement.

They will try all manner of plays to set up the run. From your standard between-the-tackles runs, to screen plays, to the Wildcat, to clever reverses to get Elijah Moore and maybe old friend Marquise Goodwin in space to let their speed and shiftiness create havoc.

Emari Demarcardo had a career day with 58 yards against the Seahawks last week, including runs of 18, 12 and eight yards. He had an average of four yards per rush before he was touched by a Seahawks defender.

Rondale Moore had a 15-yard run and Josh Dobbs had his 25-yard touchdown run, banging off Seahawks tacklers like a pinball.

The Browns have a better offensive line and more running weapons than the Cardinals had. The Seahawks need to tighten things up and not allow the Browns’ offense any breathing room to move the ball while simultaneously keeping it out of their quarterback’s hands.

This is the test right here. You can hang your hat all you like on the stats. Can they put a stop to the run when they absolutely have to?

It is a fight. A challenge. Who can minimize their weaknesses and in turn help maximize their strengths even more? The Browns will likely be very happy with a short intermittent passing game and a stout rushing attack if they can keep the Seattle defense on the field and win the field position game.

With Uchenna Nwosu out, it will be on the young shoulders of Boye Mafe and Derrick Hall to contain the edges on run plays. Time to step forward, fellas.

Game-Plan the Offense to Minimize Myles Garrett’s Impact

If you have read any of my previous watch points posts, you probably have heard me say a weakness of the Seahawks over the years has been a lack of humility. At times they do not account for an opponents’ strength, preferring to run their set plays and let the chips fall where they may.

Myles Garrett is one such player that Shane Waldron and Geno Smith need to be aware of on every single snap. I submit he should be closely considered when working up and implementing an offensive plan for this game.

In Week Three, the Tennessee Titans did not adjust for Garrett and it cost them dearly. They ran the ball only 15 times (a team with Derrick Henry and Tyjae Spears only calling 15 runs!) and threw the ball 30 times. Ryan Tannehill was slow, indecisive and unable to find his second and third reads.

Garrett’s stat line for the game (I promise you I am not making this up): 3.5 sacks, three tackles for loss, a forced fumble, five quarterback hits and six pressures. Tennessee ended up with 94 total yards for the game. It was brutal.

The Colts last week decided they would rather play to their strengths and planned accordingly. They only asked Gardner Minshew to throw the ball 27 times (against a whopping 40 runs). They gained 168 yards and had three touchdowns on the ground.

Garrett still had a memorable performance. He had two sacks, three pressures, blocked a field goal and had two forced fumbles. One of them resulted in a touchdown. Yet the Colts had the game virtually won until that terrible blown call by the officials. They found a formula on offense and it worked.

A 23/40 pass/run day for the Seahawks would be just what the doctor ordered. Split those 40 runs between Ken Walker, Zach Charbonnet and Deejay Dallas and keep Garrett in check as he chases runners rather than the quarterback.

As for how to plan for and handle Garrett, let’s take a brief look at his “worst” game this year against San Francisco. He ended the game with one pressure and five tackles, nothing more.

How did the Niners game plan for him? Have a look at the highlight reel from the NFL.

— Run away from him. Look at the very first play. Garrett is lined up over the left tackle and they run behind the right guard. McCaffrey jukes through the traffic and Garrett actually pursues him on the backside. If you can get him huffing and puffing after chasing running backs all day, that will only help you when you do decide to pass the ball.

— Run right at him. Look at the next play. He’s lined up over the left tackle again but Trent Williams seals the tackle inside and both the guard and Kyle Juszczyk are pulling to seal him off and give the runner space. Also look at 8:46. They let him penetrate inside and run a sweep with the tight ends leading the way.

— Use his aggressiveness against him. Very next play at 0:35. Nobody blocks him, McCaffrey gives him a token chip and then turns to receive a shovel from Purdy and Garrett is totally out of the play. But also…

— Do not try the typical screen. Cue the video to 1:33 and get ready to cringe and say a prayer for Charles Cross. The Niners have a typical screen set up with offensive linemen pulling and trying to set up. Trent Williams – the best left tackle in the NFL – tries to just chip and release Garrett and gets manhandled. The other defenders’ speed takes over and cleans up a play wrecked by Garrett.

— Pay the Garrett Tax. 2:42, 5:12, 5:40, you see the Niners double teaming or otherwise chipping Garrett. I’d like to point out at 5:12 they use McCaffrey to chip him with Trent Williams right there. Now that is humility. It is OK to admit that good players need some help and that you can use other good players to do some dirty work once in a while.

— Get your QB in motion. Cue to 3:42. Garrett lined up over the left tackle and they are at the left hash mark. Purdy takes the snap and rolls to a large swath of open ground to his right and has a great option to hit Brandon Aiyuk.

— Don’t miss your shots. 8:18 the rush is coming and Purdy has his man sighted and just overthrows him off his back heel. If you are going to stand tall in the pocket and take a hit, you have to keep your mechanics clean and make the play.

— Throw slants and other quick passes. 11:40, 11:55, 12:02. The Niners are moving the ball down the field late in the game. Garrett can’t sack anyone if the ball is thrown before he gets there. PFF says he had an insane 45 pass rush wins that he never translated to a pressure last year because the ball was already gone.

There has been a lot of talk about the Seahawks’ success in play action passes this week, mostly fueled by a PFF tweet:

Fans have taken the obvious road in asking ‘why don’t the Seahawks run more play-action then?’ That reasoning is a bit like the old joke about ‘if the black box is the only thing that survives a plane crash, why not make the whole plane out of the black box material?’

Running play-action is not always practical. Especially if the pass rush is coming (as the Seahawks should absolutely expect it to be). If it opens up middle lanes for quick passes to tight ends, so be it. But with a still-developing offensive line problem and Geno Smith’s indecision, this could simply take too much time to rely on regularly in this game.

Geno Smith has been hesitant and has been double-clutching a lot lately. In the Cincinnati game, Shane Waldron left the tackles to fend for themselves without much assistance in pass protection. Both of these troubles have cost the Seahawks dearly.

If both cannot improve rapidly by using some of the game-enhancing tools we outlined above, we may witness another dominating performance by Myles Garrett on Sunday and another game lost the Seahawks ‘woulda coulda shoulda’ won, making that mountain climb through that tough stretch of games next month even harder.

Win the Turnover Battle

This is always critical — but even more so for this game.

The Seahawks have their heads just barely above water at +1 after that poor performance against Arizona, while the Browns are a miserable -6.

They will have to hold onto the ball in the running game, avoid any strip sacks and Geno Smith will need to cease and desist with his poor decision-making when he tries to plays outside himself.

Another big key: With the #1 defense in the NFL on the other side, a short field for the offense created by a turnover would be huge. For the obvious reason (less work to get in scoring range) but also a very curious secondary one. For all of their great defense, the Browns are one of the worst teams in the NFL in defending the red zone. They are currently allowing 70% of opposition red zone trips to result in a touchdown. I know the Seahawks have had trouble there but this is too good an opportunity to pass up. If they get there, they must take advantage.

    Great stuff as always Cha! Thanks for writing this as it was an enjoyable read!

  2. bmseattle

    I’ve had an uneasy feeling about our vaunted run defense.
    I’m not convinced that we are as good as our numbers present us, and I suspect a regression is due.

    This week will be a test, certainly… but the *real* test will be when we face a team that can also, potentially, burn us through the air.
    One could argue that the Bengals were just such a team, but Mixon is not a threat at this point in his career, so their running attack was not a great litmus test.

    The upcoming stretch of *tough* games will be very interesting and should really give us a sense of where we are and how legit our defense really is.

    • Peter

      Four oline starters or starter level players. Great test to see who and what this offense is. Who knows about Lucas so what we see today may be the best lineup for the remainder of the season.

      This game feels like a test/warmup for the second half of the year. One gane at a time but…next week is another great defense with a great offense.

    • LouCityHawk

      Subtract Chenna, add Darrell Taylor, run defense is abysmal.

      Edge setting is a critical component of run defense

      • Peter

        Clark? Hall? Anyone but Taylor.

        • LouCityHawk

          Hall, I feel like this could be his moment.

          • Peter

            Hope so. Quiet key to the game, Taylor is in for 60% of snaps….yikes.

          • ImUrHuckleBerri

            +1 Hoping Hall gets the bulk of the Uchenna’s snaps. Gotta let the young guys play and see what you have there. Not to mention what they invested to get him. I think game experience is worth it for their development even if they make a couple mistakes.

  3. Peter

    Great stuff Cha.

    1. Three TE’s. RT is a liability. Not sure the thought against the Bengals but as I mentioned before, less spreading the ball around to see what sticks and more protection. Where’s Will Dissly?

    2. Now that we are at game 7 time to find something on offense we are good at. Really hope they stick to a heavy run ratio today.

    3. Tackling? Please wrap up. Seahawks have had a great run defense thus far. Disagreements amongst fans as to whether this is causation or corollary. Doesn’t matter where you land on that. Browns with no “star,” runningback are one of the best running teams.

    4. Deejay Dallas. Pick your spots. With the rule changes over the years I’ve been less interested in kick returns. He’s been good maybe great this year. Everytime it’s not a fair catch I dread the ball is getting popped out. Heavily agree with your turnover notes and feel the same going the other way. Not sure this team can overcome stupid mistakes against the Browns.

  4. 805Hawk

    Great article. Thanks, Curtis.

  5. Big Mike

    Thanks so much Curtis. Good stuff as always.
    The “stubborn” Seahawks make me very nervous. We definitely saw that vs. Cincy when help for the Tackles was never forthcoming. I fear if an approach isn’t working as that one wasn’t, they’ll keep beating the horse with said approach until it dies.

    • Peter

      An additional thing I’m hoping for besides the ‘W’. Injury free from key players. Against the niners I was getting shades of the LOB as Cleveland started to knock players out of the game.

  6. Rob Staton


    I wish we had a long-term solution at QB because there’s some value to be had in the trade market. Baltimore, for example, would be very wise to consider a Sweat or Young trade with Washington.

    But I wouldn’t want the Seahawks chasing big trades in their situation. I genuinely think they need to save their picks and maybe add more.

    FWIW — I am not that fussed about adding Carl Lawson unless it’s a total token gesture (swap of picks or something miniscule). Doesn’t move the needle for me. He’s a better fit than Darrell Taylor though so maybe they can churn.

    • Peter


      I’m hoping they get through Tuesday afternoon relatively quietly. There’s zero evidence to me that a pick higher than our native third would yield a player that puts us over the top of anything.

      • Rob Staton

        Uche is a designated pass rusher — not sure that’s worth much to us when we already have players who can do that

        • Peter

          Yeah I see that’s he’s basically taylor. Six of the same half a dozen of the other.

          • Rob Staton

            Uche’s a better scheme fit I think given the way they’ve gone but still… if he’s only there to rush the passer might as well just do that with Taylor or Clark

            • GeorgiaSeahawks

              Just going by today’s performance against the Falcons, it looks like we should’ve traded up in the late 1st or beginning of the 2nd instead of the Titans and selected Will Levis. 4 TDs, no ints.

  7. Blitzy the Clown

    Each team’s offense is well matched by the other team’s defense.

    Penalties and turnovers will determine the outcome

    • Peter

      Tbf we are supposed to have the decided offensive advantage (qb). Not sure what the recipe is today to get us over the Browns. Hopefully Waldron can find it though.

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Their defense is better than ours by as much a margin as our QB is better than theirs

        • Peter

          That’s why I’m stoked for today. It’s like a math problem. Everything crosses everything out and we get to see if this team is ready for prime time or if we’ve been feasting on the bottom of the league thus far.

          • Blitzy the Clown

            I have a hunch Clark will be a factor

            Or is that a hope?

            Does it matter?

            • Peter

              Think so as well. Clark and Reed hopefully play the hits today.

  8. KennyBadger

    Myles Garrett is going to have a Derrick Thomas type game today. Hopefully Paul skansi is there for us in the end.

    • LouCityHawk

      Could be worse than that…

      I have to believe that the game plan on defense will be solid, if I see Taylor out on first down I’m going to just ask them to leave the bottle of bourbon on the table…

      Offensively there is a blueprint for how to beat these Browns, the Hawks could get out to an early lead, which should turn into a running game. If the offense bizarrely decides to not account for Garrett or Buck the common wisdom, things could get real ugly.

      • Peter

        Was very weird living in the Virgin islands being expected to tip the barkeep at pour your own bars. A precursor to getting asked to tip at self checkout I suppose.

  9. Jed Simon

    “The referees explicably flagged pass interference on a throw that was headed … into the third row …”

    Indeed, the call was explicable: For the NFL wants more points, and will do whatever it takes to get them.

    • Big Mike

      There are reasons they haven’t gone to a Sky Judge, and that’s one of them.

      • jed

        I expect a “keep the game close” defensive hold or illegal contact call every game.

  10. Denver Hawker

    Feels like a Dickson for MVP game incoming- we’ll have a few of those 2 first downs and punt type of drives, if he can pin a few inside the 15, Cleveland will have a hard time sustaining much on offense.

  11. HawkfaninMT

    Random question:

    Anyone know if you can go in and out of the “Touchdown City” area of the stadium? I know they scan tickets to get in, but can you scan out and return?

    • cha

      I would guess no.

      “Re-entry at Lumen Field is event dependent. There is no re-entry for WAMU Theater events unless otherwise specified.”

      There were horror stories of fans who left the 2014 NFCCG early and could not get back in when they started their epic comeback.

      • Charlie TheUnicorn2187

        If “you, as in fans” left the 2014 NFCCG early, you got what you deserved.

  12. Blitzy the Clown

    These throwback camp cleats are the coolest athletic shoes I’ve ever seen

    • Blitzy the Clown


      effen autocorrect

    • Rob Staton

      I know my uniform takes are not going down well 🙂 but I wish they would wear white cleats with the throwbacks

      • Big Mike

        This may surprise you, but i 100% agree.

    • Charlie TheUnicorn2187

      They repainted the field in the old colors and livery. Embracing the old with open arms.
      Sometimes the NFL messes up, but sometimes the NFL hits the nail on the head.
      This is the “nail on the head” idea from Seahawks marketing and the NFL overall.

      • Blitzy the Clown

        I don’t need any more NFL merch but I went and got me some throwback merch because it’s all so freaking glorious

      • Big Mike

        Titans look really, really good in the Oilers throwbacks today too.

        • cha

          Call me crazy but the NFL should have waited for the Titans-Texans game and had them both wear Oiler throwbacks. Road and home with helmets to match.

          How cool would that have been?

  13. Romeo A57

    Thanks CHA, I think your last point is the most important.

    Geno is going to have to limit turnovers today. It should be a low scoring game. A Pick 6 or Fumble Return for a Touchdown could be the difference today.

  14. Romeo A57

    Nice to see Levis hit Hopkins for a long TD after fumbling on his first possession.

    • Rob Staton

      Levis didn’t fumble

      They put Malik Willis in for one play and he fumbled

      • Romeo A57

        Thanks, I am watching Red Zone and saw a Tennessee QB fumble. I forgot that Tennessee is inexplicably swapping QBs today.

        • Rob Staton

          Pretty hard to confuse Levis and Willis but fair enough!

          • Romeo A57

            I must not have been paying full attention

    • Peter

      Wait. Qbs can fumble snaps? That’s not how I’ve been hearing it 🙃

      • Big Mike

        Yeah, Dave Sycophant……er, Wyman told me it was the Center’s fault last week cuz “he’s a rookie”.

  15. LouCityHawk

    The Levis will be parking cars this time next year crowd aren’t having the best morning.

    • Big Mike

      I know it’s VERY early for him but I’m wondering how nice it might have been to see Seattle take him with the 2nd first rounder.

    • Peter

      To the hawks presenter who made his entire personality last draft season calling Levis “Lee vies.” Cheers to you. The joke/take sucked the first try and never got off the ground the other 10k times you did it.

      • Big Mike

        Who was this person?

        • Peter

          Not hawkblogger, not Jeff simmons both of whom I watch on their show, but one of their regulars.

          It was like watching someone do the old bud Weiser (?) “Wasssup!” Bit but about two years later after the fact.

          • GlastoHawkUK

            Was it the Walter White look a like?

          • ShowMeYourHawk

            Without verifying, it smells like that Evan Hill knob.

            • BK26

              He’s the equivalent to a chihuahua. Barks until you just kind of nudge him out of the way with your foot.

  16. Donovan

    Levi’s looking like he was worthy of pick at 20. (Cough, cough)

    • 805Hawk

      I’m so disappointed that we didn’t get any of the four QBs in this draft. I would have been happy with any one of them. Levis was sitting right there for us on multiple picks. It just stings.

  17. Big Mike

    Dallas beating the Rams by 30 nearing the half. That tells me 2 things:
    1) the media will be slobbering all over the Cowboys tomorrow and will continue to do so until they play a true Super Bowl contender e.g. Eagles and lose
    2) Rams are still likely to beat the Hawks again cuz McVay owns Carroll

    • Peter

      Hate everything about this take….cuz it’s true.

  18. cha

    No shockers among the inactive players

    WR Cody Thompson
    CB Kyu Blu Kelly
    G Phil Haynes
    LB Drake Thomas
    OT McLendon Curtis
    OT Raiqwon O’Neal

    • cha

      Dee Eskridge active, taking Thompson’s special teams snaps likely.

      Will Eskridge get any snaps on offense? Means they take snaps away from Bobo and JSN to do it.

      • Peter

        Hope not.

      • Big Mike

        Why would you do that?
        Would it just be a case of trying to prove it wasn’t a bad draft choice? I’d ask about showcasing him for a trade but no one’s gonna trade for the guy.

      • Romeo A57

        My fear is that Eskridge is going to take WR snaps away from out favorites JSN and Bobo. I was really hoping that Dee would be released but knew he would not.

        You don’t produce on the field and get suspended for a Domestic Violence Policy violation should get all mediocre players released.

        • Peter

          Exactly. A bit better than 1.5 targets per game he’s played here. It’s time to move on.

      • cha

        Bob Condotta
        Dee Eskridge out here among the returners in early warmups. He was the starting KO returner last year before injury in Munich.

        • Romeo A57

          That makes sense but it would send a good message to other players if he was released.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Is McIntosh active?

      • cha

        No he’s still on IR

  19. LouCityHawk

    Not really ready to redraft 2023….but….

    5. Spoon
    20. Levis
    37. Hall
    52. Downs

    Feeling better or worse.

    • Big Mike

      It’s really early and Levis may end up struggling to adjust after the league adjusts him. However, if he continues to play well and ends up being a well above average quarterback we are going to regret him not getting taken for sure.

      • LouCityHawk

        One of many….

      • JP

        Schneider was interested in Levis like those other QBs he was interested in, the Titans just caught us off guard, I’m sure.

        • DC1234

          If John was interested in Levis, he would of drafted him in the first round. You want the fifth year option for 1st round picks.

          He just didnt see him as QBOTF. Shame, cause i wanted seahawks to draft him to develop this year

          • Big Mike

            I’m thinking JP was being sarcastic

  20. Blitzy the Clown

    What about Levis today?!?!

    Not at all surprised either. Dude’s a true gun slinging gridiron warrior

    And Tennessee fans are loving it

    • Rob Staton

      Great start for Will Levis

    • bmseattle

      It sucks, because I’m a fan of Levis and want him to do well…
      …but the better he is, the worse I’ll feel as a Seahawks fan.

  21. nfendall

    It’s funny that the narrative of Seattle being one of the toughest places to play is still a thing.

  22. Blitzy the Clown

    Excellent stand on 3rd down

  23. Big Mike

    There’s our boy Eskridge

  24. ShowMeYourHawk

    Eskridge already contributing…. 🤦🏽‍♂️

  25. KennyBadger

    Thanks Dee.

  26. Mick

    Walker killing it already.

  27. Blitzy the Clown

    Wide open lane for Walker

  28. ShowMeYourHawk

    See Ken? Good things happen when you run NORTH!!!!

  29. Big Mike

    Really could use a touchdown here in the red zone

  30. pdway

    these throwbacks unis are bringing me much joy….

  31. bmseattle

    So many of our “wasted” timeouts come after big plays, it seems.

    Giants just punted for the 13th time.

  49. Blitzy the Clown

    Brooks has been balling out lately

  50. Mick

    No way we don’t extend Jordyn.

  51. GoHawks5151

    Brooks is playing out of his mind right now

  52. ShowMeYourHawk

    Damn. Brooks is playing his way into a nice new contract here.

  53. HOUSE

    Look at these D-HAWKS right now!!!

  54. Big Mike

    Really Pete?

    • Big Mike

      Great blocking on that tunnel screen to JSN

  55. KennyBadger

    Dee is the gift that keeps giving.

    • Romeo A57

      Less Eskridge!

    • bmseattle

      it’s so predictable what play we run when we put him in the game

  56. Peter

    Lockett just doing lockett things

  57. Palatypus

    Is it me or does Joey Galloway look off today?

  58. Peter

    But, eskridge

    • Big Mike

      Pete’s ego imo

      • Peter

        I’d say trade bait but no one needs negative yards.

  59. Big Mike

    I hope this isn’t serious for Bradford. We need our offensive lineman to be healthy!

  60. BrandoK

    Geno really only knows how to throw to JSN behind the line

  61. ShowMeYourHawk

    On the plus side, having Eskridge back means that JSN is hopefully free from the purgatory of screen passes four yards deep…

    • Peter

      Bury that play at the bottom of the sound

  62. nfendall

    O-line can’t catch a break with injuries.

  63. Peter

    Jsn nicely done.

    Get up Bradford, please

  64. HOUSE

    They’ve really put pressure on Dee to play today.

    Not a fan of that screen to JSN, but 1st down!

  65. Big Mike

    That was good Geno

  66. BrandoK

    Why are they calling a read option with Geno and having him run its terrible

    • Big Mike

      Yeah that play made no sense at all

  67. ShowMeYourHawk

    OOOOOOOOOHHHH! Tyler’s feeling feisty today!

  68. Blitzy the Clown

    All he does is…

    Lockett as good as gold

    And nice move by nifty feet Geno

  69. pdway

    great play by Geno — what a start, you can’t beat us in these unis…..

    • Peter

      Make em permanent

      • Big Mike

        💯 💯 💯

    • Romeo A57

      Beautiful play by Geno there. I have not been impressed by him this season but a very nice start today.

  70. nfendall

    Great start! Let’s keep our foot on the gas!

  71. KennyBadger

    Geno actually looking pretty good today!

  72. Blitzy the Clown

    This Browns defense is legit and our offense is rolling over them like they ain’t nuthin

    • pdway

      when we’re rolling…the # of weapons this offense has is something else

  73. HOUSE

    Geno looks to be playing overly cautious to prevent TOs. Nice TD pass to Lockett

  74. bmseattle

    Geno very sharp so far today.
    He’s been very aware in the pocket and doing a great job of extending the play and seeing downfield.
    Where has this been the past few weeks?

  75. BrandoK

    Lockett is so consistent always there to make a play

  76. STTBM

    Holy buckets! Seattle reacting aggressively to bad playcalls that get blown up–like that asinine run by Eskridge. They’ve been hilariously over-cautious in the Red Zone this season, but not today!

  77. Peter

    Such a great start.

  78. jed

    That teeder to Tyler looked like prime Russ

  79. ShowMeYourHawk

    So… not a hold by Pocic?

    • pdway

      totally a hold

    • STTBM

      I hate Roger G. The refs are insanely awful, and holding is so inconsistent it’s disgusting. Refs are an absolute WWF joke…

  80. nfendall

    That pursuit angle by Love was awful.

  81. Big Mike

    Atrocious defensive series

  82. BrandoK

    Seattle still terrible with the screen plays

    • Peter

      The song that never ends

  83. Big Mike

    Aaaaaand we have a new nick for Love, “Surfboard”.

  84. Palatypus

    It is the waxing gibbous moon before all hallows eve…

    Strange things are afoot!

  85. Romeo A57

    I was about to call a Seahawks Blowout but that was some bad defense right there.

    • pdway

      when you saw it was just Diggs btwn Njoku in the end zone…did anyone think there was a chance he’d stop him…..

      • bmseattle

        Maybe we’ll get better effort out of him if we give him an extension?

        • Big Mike


  86. Peter

    Wrong team with the TE concepts.

  87. BrandoK

    Can’t believe seattle is paying the safety position so much and they are just terrible

  88. Peter

    Peters in at RT

  89. Blitzy the Clown

    Geno dropped that right into DK’s breadbasket

  90. BrandoK

    Great play by Geno he just needs to play with in himself just don’t play dumb

    • pdway

      even that redzone throw to DK that didn’t work – i was good w it -= got rid of the ball quickly, no chance for a pick

  91. Peter

    So good.

  92. Peter

    This redzone offense this season is brutal

  93. pdway

    i want that throwback hoodie Pete is wearing

    • Big Mike

      I’d be shocked if they weren’t available for sale about Monday

  94. Big Mike

    A lot of blitzing by the defense. Worked the first series not so much the last one.

  95. Big Mike

    Nice coverage surf board
    Not much I hate worse than giving up a first down on third and long

    • Peter

      Remember when everyone copied our tackling?

      I don’t.

      Diggs going for the ankle.

  96. ShowMeYourHawk

    3rd and long? No prob.

  97. STTBM

    Seattle falling into the same trap Cleveland has on D: being too aggressive. Calm down and double Cooper, and let your 4 rush, make Walker fit it into a tight window….

  98. icb12

    17 pts in the 1st quarter?

    I was scanning the scores and assumed that I had the start time wrong. 17 pints, had to be the 4th quarter.

    Can’t watch today, but that seems promising.

    • Peter

      It’s mostly great.

      Getting killed on screens.

    • bmseattle

      I agree… 17 pints before the 4th quarter is very impressive.

  99. ShowMeYourHawk

    Up by ten. Where’s the crowd noise?

  100. Blitzy the Clown

    Woolen with the INT!

    • Big Mike

      And I think he was touched before the ball came loose while he was on the ground
      Will the NFL screw us on this?

      • Palatypus


      • Scot04

        Looked like Woolen had his helmet touched before ball knocked ou

    • seaspunj

      looked like interception and then a fumble on Riq

      • bmseattle

        looks like the Brown’s ball to me

      • Blitzy the Clown

        He’s down and the play is over the moment he has possession and his ass on the ground

        He didn’t “fumble” until he rolled over

      • seaspunj

        glad i am wrong

    • Romeo A57

      Will be an interesting review here

  101. Big Mike

    Kirk cousin’s torn Achilles. I think he is out of a contract at the end of the season going to be very interesting to see who signs him

    • TomLPDX

      This sucks for Cousins. Hate to see him go out like that. I know a lot of people don’t think much of Kirk but he is a decent QB.

  102. ShowMeYourHawk

    I’m going to right now call that they’ll say Woolen fumbled after the INT, even though he made no obvious move to get up and progress the play.

    • bmseattle

      did he even have complete control, tho?
      I think it’s just a “reception”… no interception.

      • bmseattle


    • ShowMeYourHawk

      Thrilled to be incorrect!

  103. Palatypus

    If I were a Browns fan, I would be pretty angry about that call.

    • Big Mike

      So you’d be angry over the correct call?
      His body was touched before the ball came out and his ass was on the ground he is down right there.
      Did you see that last angle they showed? It was very obvious.

      • Palatypus

        I did not.

    • Peter

      Well there’s this 3 and out.

  104. ShowMeYourHawk

    Must everything be 20 yards downfield? Remember when we could utilize the TEs for chunk gains?

  105. nfendall

    Why are there so many Fade down the sideline play calls? Use the TEs over the middle?

  106. BrandoK

    Middle of the field is wide open and you throw it to the sideline why

    • Peter

      For real. This is one area where Geno was a great change last year.

      • BrandoK

        He’s looking for the big plays no easy throws

    • Romeo A57

      Geno has not been seeing the field well this year. That is why he looks hesitant in the pocket.

      Thankfully today the oline has been giving hom enough time to find someone to throw to.

    • nfendall

      They have 3 capable TE as pass catchers as well as a first round pick who should feast there. I don’t get it.

  107. Big Mike

    Remember when the seahawk defense was good against the run? Fun times

  108. BrandoK

    Defense looks terrible again

  109. Big Mike

    Third and long now get a damned stop!

  110. Palatypus

    Everyone on the NFLN was talking up the Ravens this morning and now they are laying an egg.

  111. Big Mike

    What a horrible call

    • Big Mike

      And that was really big because we get the ball at midfield if I don’t make that shit call

    • nfendall

      They let the play against Metcalf go in the endzone and call that one? Yuck.

    • Scot04

      Yep. Brutal

    • pdway

      ridiculous call…woolen doing exactly what he’s supposed to there. takes away a turnover

  112. Blitzy the Clown

    Love is so bad he’s almost hapless

    I repeat, the suspect is hapless!

    • bmseattle

      come now… he’s *completely* devoid of Hap?

  113. jed

    First keep the game close trash call there in aria

    • jed

      Nice … on Riq and now the defense is throwing it back to most of the last few years

  114. Kyle R

    Very late flag Jesus

  115. BrandoK

    Run Defense looks incredible today

  116. ShowMeYourHawk

    Well, this is less than optimal. When is this team going to put together both a solid offensive and defensive performance?

  117. Peter

    Could you imagine if quandre hit someone?- Dave wyman

    I almost literally can not.

    • Big Mike

      My deepest sympathies that you’re stuck with another week of Dave Wyman

      • Peter

        The missus has a work thing so I can’t be dropping curse words in the house. So its me and Dave in my shop….

  118. Big Mike

    Hey I know let’s cover Cooper with Bobby Wagner

  119. bmseattle

    it looked like Diggs just decided not to cover Cooper on that play!

  120. Kyle R

    That was the perfect screen shot of a huge hole in coverage between Wagner, Diggs and Adams lol.

  121. Peter

    Sure. Let’s do a bunch of penalties.

    • bmseattle

      isn’t it great for the advertisers that the game is a close one, though???

      • Peter

        Won’t someone consider the ad reps?

      • Big Mike

        And maybe Vegas has something to do with it as well
        You know halftime bets, in game bets et cetera

        • Peter

          Won’t someone consider the sports books?

  122. pdway

    that PI call on 4th down was huge

  123. Big Mike

    And there’s your NFL making a call to keep the game close horrible call on the pass interference our guys have been mugged worse than that today. But see if we get the ball at midfield and score again the games out of hand so we gotta keep it close to keep people watching

    Absolute shit pass interference call

    • Scot04

      100% spot on.

    • jed

      Every damn game.

  124. Pran

    Feels like one of those all-pro backup QB games special from Pete

  125. ShowMeYourHawk

    Need a 4+ minute drive and a score. No confidence in the D to prevent hurry up points.

  126. Big Mike

    And there’s the referees again

    • Kyle R

      Don’t want it to be a two score game before halftime!

  127. Peter

    Steve and Dave are trying to figure out if the offense has figured something out with our defense. Thankfully these two are in the case.

    It’s the SCREEN PASSES!!!

  128. bmseattle

    they gonna show the replay of that penalty?

    • pdway

      yeah exactly – where was it

    • Big Mike

      Isn’t it interesting that they show some of the penalties on replay but others they don’t. Gee I wonder why that is?

  129. BrandoK

    Has seattle lost the ability to use the TE’s

  130. ShowMeYourHawk

    4 yard screen pass on 2nd and 20?

    We’re SO giving up the lead before the half.

    • Peter

      Whatever the opposite of iron sharpens iron…..that’s our screen game on both sides.

      • Palatypus

        Sponge wets sponge.

        • Peter


  131. nfendall

    Dickson for all-pro this year.

  132. STTBM

    Schwartz > Hurtt. Cleveland adjusting, Seattle just fumbling. Our coaching staff is not NFL level…

  133. Pran

    Momentum has shifted in favor of Browns. Both offense and defense trending in reverse

    • jed

      Don’t worry, if the browns get too far out in front the refs will swing the momentum back.

      I usually hate blaming refs and I’m annoyed with myself, but these guys are horrid.

  134. ShowMeYourHawk

    TWO holds on the CLE OL. Two. Both uncalled.

    • Big Mike

      Maybe they only call illegal hands to the face

      • bmseattle

        yep…on the center…um, wait, no… the guard!

        • Big Mike

          Well we would have known how do we seen a replay

          • Big Mike

            * If we had seen a replay

  135. Rob Staton

    Such a streaky team

  136. KennyBadger

    Of course PJ Walker is having a career game. Duh.

  137. Big Mike

    That bullshit fourth down past interference call changed this entire game

  138. 12th chuck

    nice to see J Adams have such an awesome game, go PEACOCK!!

  139. nfendall


  140. ShowMeYourHawk

    Mafe! Good job, young man.

  141. Blitzy the Clown

    Mafe my mofo!

  142. BrandoK

    Mafe with a great play

    • Palatypus

      That was Dewand Jones he just punked.

      That’s for not finishing Senior Bowl week.

  143. bmseattle

    Mo Mafe!

  144. Peter

    Mafe. Five weeks.

  145. GoHawks5151

    Can no one else return punts? Jesus… Catch, hop around, get tackled, repeat

  146. Blitzy the Clown

    Charbonnet rumbling stumbling downfield

  147. dragonhawk

    The combination of Bill Vinovich and his crew and Daryl Johnston and the Fox announcing crew is insufferable

  148. Pran

    Why DJ Dallas is in team.. He is indecisive, has no speed and worthless othwrwise

  149. jed

    Geno and DK really struggling today

  150. Big Mike

    How do we not get a first down on third and 2?

    • ShowMeYourHawk

      When your OL can’t open a lane….

    • bmseattle

      why in the world would you run it there?!

  151. Brodie

    What is it about Geno to DK? Every one of his passes that is no where near the WR is a DK target.

    • Brodie

      Aaaaannnddd a pick 🙁

  152. GeorgiaSeahawks

    That’s 5 games in a row with a sack for Mafe. Have to think he’s surpassed Taylor this year and made him expendable, especially because DT can’t set the edge or stop the run.

  153. Palatypus

    Maybe we should tell Geno that the defensive backs are tight ends. That way the ball will never go near them.

  154. Big Mike

    And another wasted scoring opportunity thanks to Smith’s inability to be a quality quarterback

    • bmseattle

      I’ll wait to reserve judgment until the Geno defenders tell me why it wasn’t his fault.

    • GeorgiaSeahawks

      How nice to have had someone like Levis to throw long TDs to DK like he did to Hopkins today. One was while he was backing up, being hit and falling down.

      • Rob Staton

        The final TD, thrown downfield while back-pedalling, was world class physical skill

    • Scot04

      You definitely have to come away with atleast 3 there.
      Unfortunately he stared at DK a little too long on that one.

  155. Romeo A57

    My predictions for the Second Half

    More Bobo!
    More Mafe!
    More Charbonnet!

  156. Big Mike

    Hey Pete here’s a suggestion unload on your quarterback who is failing instead of the rest

    • Big Mike


    • nfendall

      Curious to know what he is so pissed about.

      • bmseattle

        Maybe he saw the Levis highlights from today?

      • bmseattle

        defensive lineman lined up in neutral zone

    • Romeo A57

      Same as when he overprotected Russ. It was always everyone’s fault but the QB. That Browns DB didn’t touch DK, he made a great play.

  157. ShowMeYourHawk

    Of course. Geno staring down his receivers.

  158. BrandoK

    Geno with another turnover not surprised at all

  159. STTBM

    OMG, shoot me now! Geno sucks so goddamn bad! Three awful throws on that drive! I’d trade next years fourth and Geno for PJ Walker at this point….

  160. Peter

    What’s this week’s reason? Bad vibes? Moon in uranus?

    • STTBM

      Genos got his head up there, not the moon…

    • Romeo A57

      Unusual late October Sun in his eyes

  161. Big Mike

    How can you stay with a quarterback that keeps blowing scoring opportunities?
    That was a sure field goal you have to be careful at that point

  162. Kyle R

    Another side effect of that is Geno is going to be in his head the rest of the game now with that pick. Say what you want about Wilson he was able to forget and move on quick after he screwed up and not let it effect him the rest of the game.

  163. Rob Staton

    Draft a QB

    • bmseattle

      I really hope we have the opportunity to draft a QB with as much upside as Levis.

      • MattG

        I was about to wonder aloud what kind of trade it would take to get Levis. Then I remembered that if the Hawks wanted him at all, they had ample opportunity to draft him.

        • MattG

          Oh, I didn’t realize Levis was actually playing today. And quite.

    • Big Mike

      For the love of heaven, PLEASE!!

    • STTBM

      A thousand times, YES!!! This is just like watching TJack spray the ball everywhere but where his receivers were…

    • BrandoK


    • Peter

      It’s time

    • Dustin


    • BrandoK

      Is Pete to loyal with Geno and just keeps sticking with him and is he gonna keep making excuses for his bad plays

  164. jed

    Why was Pete mad on the Geno pick? Still poor play by Geno, but wtf are the refs doing?

    • STTBM

      I don’t get it….only 11 guys on field….

      • nfendall

        The edge near the bottom of the screen is lined up offsides.

        • STTBM

          Ah, figures they didn’t call that one…

    • nfendall

      Ahhh, that’s what it was. As you said, it was a poor play by Geno that was completely avoidable.

    • Big Mike

      Your quarterback is more of a problem Pete and that’s saying something because the officials suck in this game

    • Scot04

      Next half they’ll let the Brown’s D-lineman start in our backfield.

  165. STTBM

    I hope Seattle adjusts at halftime, they should be winning by two TDs….

    • Big Mike

      Yep at least 10 points
      But I’ll say it again if they don’t call that bullshit pass interference on Woolen maybe this game is entirely different

  166. BrandoK

    This is the real Geno some good plays alot more terrible and negative plays and TD/Int ratio is 40/60 maybe worse

  167. Scot04

    I also want to see more Walker in the 2nd half.

    • STTBM

      Walker is probably dinged up. Charbonnet playing well too…

  168. GeorgiaSeahawks

    Thought Geno was going for the 5 games in a row streak like Mafe with ints. instead of sacks. But he didn’t have one in the Giants game when he was injured and had no OL. Almost all of these are just bad decisions by him and not because of pressure.

  169. GlastoHawkUK

    Second half adjustments:
    Put Safety’s into game
    Put TE’s into game
    Stop forcing ball to DK

  170. Anthony

    I’m convinced Hawkblogger is getting a piece of Geno’s contract or he’s just plain stupid.

    • bmseattle

      Hawkblogger always likes to point out when people “confirm their priors”, but he refuses to admit that his Geno takes are getting worse by the week.

  171. Big Mike

    Pam Oliver is bad at her job

  172. Palatypus

    Rope bridge quarterback.

    • BrandoK

      More like string than rope at this point

    • bmseattle

      He’s more like the West Seattle bridge.

  173. Blitzy the Clown

    What a terrible play call for 3rd and short

    • seaspunj

      reminding me of Rams 1st game

      need the Seahawks to get some momentum

  174. Kyle R

    Fucking run the ball on 3-1 if you are a Goddamn bully running team!!!

    • Big Mike

      Yeah I thought Pete Carroll was a run the ball kind of coach

  175. Blitzy the Clown

    Derick Hall is starting to pop in plays

  176. bmseattle

    Witherspoon has been super quiet today.
    Adams as well.

  177. STTBM

    No surprise, it was Adams who was covering Njoku and got blocked out of the play….

    • Big Mike

      18 million dollars for that

      • STTBM

        I’m too sad to cry…

  178. BrandoK

    another screen play what a surprise

  179. Big Mike

    All momentum has been lost this game could well be the same

  180. STTBM

    I can’t believe how much better Clevelands OC is scheming than Waldron. This is a clinic….

  181. KennyBadger

    Great effort by diggs on that screen to njoku. Wtf.

    • Big Mike

      Adams too
      There’s your 32 million dollar expenditure on 2 safeties

  182. Tony

    Another pathetic effort by Dre Jones on the long screen play.

  183. Palatypus

    Here is our rope bridge quarterback in action.

  184. SeaTown

    PJ Walker. At home. SMH.

  185. nfendall

    A good play by Darrell Taylor!

  186. STTBM

    Why are we leaving guys that wide open?!

  187. ShowMeYourHawk

    Terrible. Just terrible. The back half of the defense is criminally poor.

    • Big Mike

      For only 42 million dollars this year

  188. Troy

    No screen game on offense. Can’t defend the screen on defense.

  189. Big Mike

    Third and long so this will probably be a touchdown

  190. Pran

    Both OC and DC are getting schooled and Pete has no balls. Same old shit

  191. Troy

    The 2020 – 2022 defense is back with a vengeance.

  192. Big Mike

    Oh hell yes, Rush music going into commercial! That would be the best thing about this game for the last hour or so

  193. Brian Chase

    This is why PC was upset in the interception

    • Big Mike

      So he’s begging the refs to bail Geno out?

      Do you think he’s that angry if Geno doesn’t throw the interception?

      • bmseattle

        ah… so that will be the excuse for Geno… he thought he had a free play!

      • Tony

        It doesn’t excuse the int. Awful throw. But that is a basic call by refs. I mean they literally have a line ref that’s sole purpose is watching that.

  194. SeaTown

    I’ve seen enough of Geno. He is who is he. I know it won’t happen but I’d really like to see Drew Lock.

  195. STTBM

    Genos pick cost is at least 3 points. Those points looming large right now.

    He looks scared and frustrated. This doesn’t engender Belief…

  196. ImUrHuckleBerri

    At what point do you see what you have in Lock? Geno is the safe below average option with zero upside. On paper looking at our skill position players and recent investment in the Oline. This should be a top 5 offense.

    • BK26

      We know what we have in Lock. The only difference is that he is more inspiring. When he played when Wg
      Geno got hurt, offense looked on their feet.

  197. David Ashton

    Ugh another closey wosey – geno needs to be a bit better

  198. ShowMeYourHawk

    Lockett open on the cross. Sigh.

  199. STTBM

    My God, Geno is terrible. He’s losing this game all by himself.

  200. Peter

    Why do I never feel like the game is ours when we get that first quick td every week?

  201. Blitzy the Clown

    Sorry folks, Geno isn’t the answer

    • DragonHawk

      Ya think???

    • Big Mike

      But Pete will stay stubbornly with him till we get to about 5 and 10

    • BrandoK

      Geno wrote back

    • Romeo A57

      Q: How do you sabotage an NFL Offense that is loaded with solid Tight Ends and Wide Receivers?

      A: Geno Smith😞

  202. SeaTown

    Fing Geno!!

  203. BrandoK

    Another Geno turnover not surprised at all

  204. Big Mike

    That ball never should have been thrown and when he did throw it it was behind the receiver

  205. STTBM

    So much for our run D…

  206. Peter




    • Big Mike

      So is our boy Dave Wyman blaming the receiver for Geno throwing into double coverage?

      • Peter

        Talking about yards. Cause you can trade in yards for points like a chuckee cheese

  207. BrandoK

    How long is seattle gonna stick with Geno

  208. SeaTown

    Run defense getting exposed for what it is too

  209. Pran

    So over Geno and Waldron

  210. Blitzy the Clown

    Really quiet game from Edwards Jr

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Shoulda mentioned him sooner

    • STTBM

      He had a big penalty though…

  211. SeaTown

    The Cleveland Browns walked into Lumen and dominated us. SMH

    • Big Mike

      With yet another backup quarterback doing it to us

  212. David Ashton

    Ugh another closey wosey – geno needs to be a bit (lot) better

    Mafe looking explosive which is great

  213. Peter

    With you pran. I’m over Waldron

  214. ShowMeYourHawk

    Congrats, Hurtt. You’ve made PJ Walker into Lamar Jackson.

    • Pran

      All-pro backup QB

    • Peter

      What’s the real Lamar gonna look like…

  215. Pran

    Run D was never better. Good offenses did not need to rush against Hawks and bad teams are bad teams.

  216. seaspunj

    this is so frustrating

    i cant see how we can continue to have Geno next season moving forward

    Seahawks have no future QB in the wings and no matter how pro Seahawks media spin it, Geno is not the answer

    Watching Levis throw 4 TDs is also a kick in the groin

  217. Peter

    This is geno’s season pace:

    19 tds. 14 ints.

    The hardest of passes.

    • Rob Staton

      You’re just a hater etc etc

      • bmseattle

        yes, you just *want* him to fail so you’ll be right!

    • Big Mike

      Where’s the penalty flag ref?

  218. Troy

    Pete HATES turnovers. How much patience will he have with how Geno is playing. Run the ball more?

    • bmseattle

      he’ll just order Waldron to dial back the offense and make it more conservative, rather than bench Geno.

      • Big Mike

        Because admitting hes wrong is something Peter’s not good at e.g. Adams, Eskridge, etc

        • Peter

          Admittedly I’m not great at it. But I try.

      • BrandoK

        But Geno always finds a way to turn the ball over even then

  219. nfendall

    Defense is struggling overall, but Mafe has 4 QB hits. He looks to be taking the 2nd year leap.

    • Pran

      Only for Peasants. Diff rules for favorites

    • Big Mike

      Yes he’s having a hell of a game
      Now about those safeties….

  220. STTBM

    Geno cost us 6 points already….in a tight game, that’s inexcusable.

    • BrandoK

      Gonna be alot of excuses from Pete after this game

  221. Tony

    If pj walker and geno switched places. This would be the exact same game.

  222. STTBM

    Geno staring down his receivers…

    • Pran

      Geno telegraph plays.. When Geno is jittery as one can see no point in playing him

  223. 12th chuck

    seahawks in a nutshell, playing down to worse teams to get an exciting win, losing to regular teams and occasional win against a good team. rarely having a good win in all aspect’s of a game offense, defense special teams

  224. seaspunj

    dodged a pick 6

  225. Troy

    Wow. Our offense sucks.

  226. BrandoK

    another dropped int from the defense

  227. ShowMeYourHawk

    The Bengals are currently holding SF at bay. If the team can remove their heads from their arses, we could be atop the division. Instead, we’re letting Geno throw 15 yds into double coverage on 3rd and 2.

  228. Big Mike

    That one is not necessarily on Geno
    But that is one of those should have been a turnover lucky Geno kind of plays

    • Big Mike

      Remember when we were ahead 14 to 0
      Good times

  229. BrandoK

    Dickson is the MVP for seattle

    • STTBM

      You are a badly coached team if your punter is your MVP. And your QB sucks.

      • BrandoK

        Thats what this team is

  230. STTBM

    Hilarious! JSN runs wrong route, TV plays Zeppelins Communication Breakdown….

    Well played…

    • Big Mike


    • bmseattle

      did they play Nobody”s Fault but Mine after his last int?

      • STTBM


  231. nfendall

    Somebody messed up that one. My guess by Geno’s reaction it was JSN but impossible to know for sure.

    • STTBM

      But Geno telegraphed the play.

  232. KennyBadger

    Earlier in the game I thought we were getting Good Geno today. Turns out he’s always just Geno.

  233. jed

    This team is bang average. It’s frustrating because they can look great at times on both sides of the ball. But then they can look equally bad at times.

  234. Troy D

    Im sorry but Geno doesnt not enstill any confidence. I think I am learning that we have two lackluster QB’s cause Geno is purely average and costing us this game and if Lock is never even an afterthought then he is obviously not good enough. Man disappointing.

  235. BrandoK

    Will Pete bench Geno today?

    • STTBM

      That’s about as likely as Allen firing Carrol.

  236. Pran

    Pete praying for a game against bad team can’t come soon enough. It’s going to be lot of pain for fans next couple weeks

    • Big Mike

      This is at best a 7 and 10 team considering the schedule

    • Peter

      When’s that on the schedule next? AZ…

    • cha

      I read somewhere they currently have the third toughest schedule the rest of the way.

    • SeaTown

      Cowboys, 49ers, Eagles. That will be fun.

      • GeorgiaSeahawks

        And Rams at LA, 49ers twice in 3 weeks, @Ravens, even @Titans could be tough if Levis plays like he played today and so does Geno. Possibly the Commanders at home in 2 weeks could be a win if Geno doesn’t give it away like he’s been doing since the Giants game.

  237. Big Mike

    This team man

  238. Troy

    Preparing myself for another home loss to a backup QB.

  239. STTBM

    Seattle hasn’t scored since 1st quarter. And Carrol thinks running the ball will fix it.

    Because of course he does.

    • Pran

      Not on 3rd and 1 though

  240. Canadian Hawk

    You take out a pitcher when he’s having a bad game.

    Not only to change the flow of the game, but also so that he can take a breath – not completely ruin his confidence.

    Feels like Geno could use a reset.

    • cha

      The press has been extremely soft on Geno the last two weeks.

      • BrandoK

        Seattle press always soft

      • Big Mike

        The press is soft on all Seattle sports teams
        Jerry dipoto would have been absolutely eviscerated in Philadelphia or Boston or New York he probably wouldn’t even have a job anymore.

  241. Peter

    Within striking distance of my favorite stat:

    2:1 time of possession

    • Big Mike

      That’s the seahawks defense we’ve come to know and despise

      • Big Mike

        It’s not to mention that offense that has specialized in 3 and outs since the first quarter or turnovers

  242. Big Mike

    As much as I do not like Adams he had a very legit beef on that play
    But you know referees

  243. Gaux Hawks

    …time of possession : (

  244. Troy

    One thing is very clear to me… Sfefanski is 100x the play caller that Waldron is.

    • cha

      Ken Walker has 7 carries. It’s the fourth quarter.


      I’ve been harping on this all year.

  245. nfendall

    They are missing Nwosu a lot in this one. He is underrated for his run defense.

  246. seaspunj

    Seahawks should go wild cat and all jet sweeps hahahah

  247. Pran

    That 3rd down defense and peacocks performance.. Lol

    This game is over unless Browns does some stupid thing

  248. ShowMeYourHawk

    FOX oing to commercial playing Montell Jordan, focused on Geno…

    🎵 This is how he blew it…🎵

  249. bmseattle

    I feel like, after doing nothing all game, that Miles Garrett will erupt now

    • KnoxHawk

      Hmmmmm you seem to have been correct sir

  250. STTBM

    Burning another TO in a tight game….WTF Waldron, Geno, Carrol….get your poop in a group!

  251. Troy

    Now let’s burn valuable time outs. What a joke.

  252. Pran

    DL may blow up anytime for 15 yards

  253. nfendall

    We need to see more Charbonnet.

  254. Blitzy the Clown

    Hell yes! Charbonnet wants to eat so feed him!

    • Peter

      Yes. This indeed.

    • Big Mike

      Well that was inevitable

  255. STTBM

    Why is Geno throwing at DKs feet every time?!

    • SeaTown

      All. Game. Long. At his feet or 10 feet over his head.

  256. Ashish

    Its getting hard to watch Geno now. He is not there mentally.

  257. Peter

    Sure. Garret. Why not.

  258. Pran

    Run is working..okay let’s make bonehead Geno throw 3 straight plays.
    On the flipside, even defense cannot catch some of those throws.

  259. KnoxHawk

    Geno ain’t it, Drew ain’t it, we need a QB to take us to the promised land !

    • GeorgiaSeahawks

      How do we know Drew ain’t it? The only time we’ve seen him all season was one series when Geno was out during the Giants game. And he threw a long strike to DK on target for a change to get them down the field for a TD.

  260. Peter

    Charbonet is great but is Walker hurt?

  261. Troy

    Let’s see if we can stop the run..

    • Peter

      Spoiler: we can not stop the run.

  262. Big Mike

    Time for that supposedly improved seahawk run defense to appear

  263. STTBM

    Looks like Disslys brain dead false start might have been the nail in the coffin….

  264. Peter

    4/12 on 3rd down. Gross.

  265. Big Mike

    Niners about to lose and we could have been all alone in first place if we had a win today. The good news is it’ll give Pete a chance to say we’re right there for the division we’re right in this thing

    • Peter

      If we don’t win that’ll be a killer with them losing.

    • Pran

      And we didn’t expect them to throw. We know their screen game, could not stop. Wish could have run more yada yada

  266. Scandichawk

    Gotta replace Geno. Should have been done it earlier in the 2nd half, not to mention the last game…. with Drew, at least he mixes it up gives another look for the defense. He brings a run threat. This offense in the 2nd half, teams adjust and shut us down, how many games now? Also on the OC.

    Geno is an unbelievable TO machine every time he drops back. Don’t get why he’s not been pulled for some time to watch from the sideline. Should have a pick six to go with the other ints.

    • BrandoK

      Pete will never bench Geno unless he gets injured he’s to loyal with him

    • GeorgiaSeahawks

      Because Pete Will Not Ever go against one of “his guys” unless they’re out and can’t play, probably blaming it on he doesn’t want to start a controversy in case the backup plays well and the fans will be split.

  267. Blitzy the Clown

    This team is its own worst opponent

  268. nfendall

    Is hand to the face a “point of emphasis” this year? It feels like they are looking for it.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      I don’t know but keeping your hands away from a guy’s helmet is pretty basic crap

  269. ShowMeYourHawk

    Chance for the division lead, plays like shite. I wish I wasn’t so used to it.

  270. HOUSE

    Come on… WTF are we doing???

  271. Big Mike

    Undisciplined football team
    It was okay when we were Super Bowl contenders because we just had more talent than anyone else
    It’s not okay anymore

  272. Blitzy the Clown

    Yes! INT!

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Adams again with the head play lmfao

  273. Big Mike

    Okay Smith here’s your shot. What are you gonna do with it?

    • Big Mike

      You have decent field position you have time and you have time outs there is no excuse for not at least getting this into overtime

    • pdway

      this is STRESSFULLL

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Plenty of time to run the ball. Especially outside

      Charbonnet was ripping off big runs there

  274. Robert

    That’s using your head!

  275. STTBM

    This team has been thoroughly out coached in every facet.

    But as Knox said, Football players make football plays…Jamal Adams with the deflection….using his head lol?!

    You can’t make this stuff up…

    • Big Mike

      Is that where John madden got it from, chuck Knox?

      • STTBM

        Don’t know who said it first, but Knox used to say that cliche whenever they eked out a close win…

  276. bmseattle

    OMG.,. off his helmet?!
    That’s too perfect!

  277. BrandoK

    Great a turnover but the offense won’t be able to capitalize on it tho with Geno at the helm

  278. Troy

    No more excuses Geno. Go win the game….

  279. SeaTown

    This last drive defines Geno. Prove us wrong.

    • Sea Mode

      I’ll admit I have little optimism based on what he’s shown since Q2.

  280. HOUSE

    That’s Jamal Adams using his there. 🤣🤣🤣

  281. Romeo A57

    Freaking Jamal Adams Helmet again for the biggest play of the game!

  282. Sea Mode


    When the ball hitting Adams in the head is actually a good thing.

  283. Scot04

    Well whatever happens, they can’t say they didn’t have plenty of opportunities to win this one.

  284. Palatypus

    In related news, Jamal Adams is out with a concussion.

    • bmseattle

      lol..that’s awesome

  285. ShowMeYourHawk

    Got to get into the end zone. No OT.

  286. Blitzy the Clown

    I like this drive

  287. Palatypus

    Geno totally locked on Metcalf again.

    • Big Mike

      Horrible decision to throw that

      • Blitzy the Clown

        And a horrible throw

        That’s more than a few horrible decision/throw combos this game

  288. Scot04

    Why does he keep forcing the ball to DK.

  289. GeorgiaSeahawks

    Dreading another sack/fumble, int. or penalty.

    • GeorgiaSeahawks

      Happy to be wrong!

  290. Brodie

    LET’S GO!!!

  291. nfendall

    LET’S GO JSN!!

  292. Blitzy the Clown

    I love that play!

    Let the rookie do what he do best!

  293. Big Mike

    No that’s pulling a game out of your ass
    And we will be all alone in first place in the NFC West
    And Smith still sucks

    • Scot04

      Now the defense just needs to hold it.

    • GeorgiaSeahawks

      All can be true. 100%. Pete will make Geno just look like the hero of the game of course, and justified for staying with him the rest of the season no matter what.

      • seaspunj

        100% agree on the Geno spin

        Seahawks dodged a bullet and if the Seahawks make the playoffs its poor qb performances like today that they cant luck out anymore

    • Blitzy the Clown

      He doesn’t suck. He’s really (mostly) adequate.

      But when he asks for a +$30 million check next year, the team gotta tell him they ain’t write that back

  294. Blitzy the Clown

    Seahawks showing some real mettle here

  295. Romeo A57

    A JSN screen for the win!
    A freaking screen pass?

  296. Troy D

    JSN and DK BLOCK!!!

  297. bmseattle

    we were very lucky that DK was flagged for a hold there

    • bmseattle


      • STTBM

        Yes indeed. He held, but he let go in time and I guess that’s now legal in Goodells WWF…I mean NFL…

  298. Peter

    Great drive.

    Good for the home fans to get to see the Win

  299. BrandoK

    Tariq Wollen wouldve had a pick there but its riq wollen this year so hes much worse

    • Palatypus

      Just like Theon Greyjoy, Riq is missing something.

  300. nfendall


  301. Blitzy the Clown

    Holy crap it’s Darrell Taylor

  302. Palatypus

    Joe Burrow completed 87% of his passes against the 49ers.

    • BrandoK

      I thought SF defense was good and Purdy was a hall of fame QB what happened

  303. Blitzy the Clown

    And that’s the game boyos!

    • pdway


      5-2 feels pretty good

  304. jed

    This first place Seahawks team sucks 😂

    • Palatypus

      Draft Michael Pratt.

    • jed

      I still think they’re average but I’m glad to be wrong

  305. Peter

    Gotta enjoy the wins when you can get them.

    • pdway

      that’s a good scrappy win – — Browns don’t suck. great to see JSN getting involved, and once again – this D closing out a game w QB sacks and pressures. That would not have happened the last couple years.

  306. nfendall

    It was rough to watch for a while after the blistering start, but they pulled it out. I’ll take the win.

  307. Pran

    Finally Adams Helmet did it..

    • James Z

      The irony is almost legendary… Now if he just donates his coffee cup to charity…

    • Palatypus

      It only took two years to get it out of his ar$e.

  308. Troy D

    Fair play Taylot. Big play earlier tto string out a run by Goodwin and then that monstter sack. Soon as I give up on him. He gives me something to gnaw on.

  309. BrandoK

    Geno shouldn’t get any excuses for the way he played this game even with the win his decision making is awful for most of the game terrible throws and dropped Int’s too

  310. Tony

    I will enjoy the ride, but will brace for impact when it crashes.

  311. Sten

    That screen pass in the red zone to JSN for the win is the ultimate Waldron middle finger to Seahawks fans hahaha

    • Zane

      Brilliant call

  312. ShowMeYourHawk

    I will never lament a victory….. but I’ll sure as hell hold those not helping that effort in contempt.

  313. Palatypus

    I think Taylor Swift gave Mahommes the flu.

    • Pran

      Russ loves Swift

  314. Zane

    Credit to the Browns: way better than I imagined. Give them a QB and they’re real contenders.

  315. GeorgiaSeahawks

    Wonder if they held KW out due to the calf injury flaring up during the game? He didn’t practice Wed. and Thursday, but had 8 carries for 66 yards, over 8 yards a carry before they pulled him.

  316. Blitzy the Clown

    49ers about to lose to the Bengals and to think we almost beat them a couple of weeks ago

  317. BrandoK

    So happy SF is loosing and getting their butt kick by Cincy

  318. pdway

    man, the clock sure has struck midnight for Purdy and the Niners….bengals cruising to a win

  319. James

    Frustrating for the entire middle-part of the game, but I can’t say that wasn’t an exciting last few minutes.

  320. Palatypus

    You’ll love this.

    Russell Wilson 12/19 114 yards 3TD 0 INT SACKED 6 TIMES FOR 27 YARDS.
