Curtis Allen’s week eleven watch notes (vs Rams)

This is a guest article by Curtis Allen…

On Sunday the Seahawks have one last game before the brutal five-game gauntlet laid out by the schedule-makers that will determine whether this team is a pretender or a contender.

I would surmise that the Rams are a perfect tune-up for it.

Just like the first game of the year, the Rams come into this one pretty banged up — with low expectations — and the Seahawks have a clear advantage in talent. The Rams are also on a three-game losing skid as part of a 1-5 run in the last six games that has tarnished the shine of an intriguing start to the season.

While we are all pre-disposed to never ever take a Rams team lightly, that should work in Seattle’s favor as a sparring partner for the heavyweights to come.

The Seahawks are a vastly different team than the one that played in Week One. Key players for this game who were not available for that one include: Jamal Adams, Devin Witherspoon, Leonard Williams and Jason Peters. Add to that the growth of young players like Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Boye Mafe (a very adequate fill-in for Uchenna Nwosu), Zach Charbonnet and the Rams cannot plan on playing the same team they faced in Week One.

On the flipside, the Rams have Matt Stafford returning from a thumb injury, Cooper Kupp is back and they have lost starting running back to Kyren Williams to injury.

The Seahawks are 4-6 against the Rams in their last ten games. That includes a high of beating them last year to secure a playoff spot, and a low of being bounced out of the playoffs in the opening round after finishing the season 12-4.

We have seen it all in this matchup.

How can the Seahawks walk away with a win Sunday and get some momentum built up for the stretch run?

Start Early

I have said this so many times about the Seahawks-Rams matchup I feel like I am on auto-pilot: The Seahawks must avoid a ‘let’s feel them out and see what they’re doing’ mentality early in the game. They have to get ahead of the game and come out charging and let the Rams try to adjust to them for a change.

Let me give you three Matt Stafford stats that back this up:

— First Down is his Worst Down. This year his completion percentage on first down throws is a miserable 57%. He has thrown for only one touchdown, had four interceptions and been sacked six times on first down for a dismal 70 QB rating. The Rams are nearly 50-50 run/pass on first downs.

— He is not good in the First Quarter. A 61.9% completion rate, only one touchdown throw, one interception and two sacks while he’s still getting his feet under him.

— About 58% of Stafford’s passes are thrown when the Rams are behind in the score. How does he do? Awful. A 57.7% completion rate, 12 of his 19 sacks, three of his seven interceptions are a pretty good story of why the Rams have been stuck in the mud the last few games. When he is ahead, he is far more effective. Coach McVay can settle into the game plan that he wants to play and giving someone like him comfort is just asking for trouble.

The Seahawks offense was one of the best in the NFL at early-game scoring going into the Baltimore game, ranking third in first-quarter scoring. In the last two games they have scored a grand total of three points in the opening quarter. Now let’s be right, they lost in Baltimore and they beat Washington, so it was not a smoking gun that led to a loss both games. However, a return to their effective starts would do a great deal in putting the Rams on their heels a bit and shaking up the status quo.

How can they get the offense on track early?

Run the ball

The Packers modelled a game plan the Seahawks should strongly consider in their 20-3 win over the Rams in Week Nine. The Rams started Brett Rypien at quarterback and couldn’t get on track offensively.

What did the Packers do on offense? They ran 38 times and passed 26 times.

They deployed a three-headed monster of Aaron Jones, A.J.Dillon and Emmanuel Wilson and didn’t ask Jordan Love to carry the offense. They got 185 yards on the ground, Love was a nicely efficient 20 for 26 for 228 yards and a sparkling 115 QB rating. They won the time of possession game by nearly 11 minutes and were never seriously challenged.

33 of those 38 carries were provided by the running backs, a number the Seahawks have yet to reach this season, despite the fact that they have a dynamic running back room that now includes Kenny McIntosh.

The Seahawks are running a 40/60 run/pass split so far this season and Geno Smith is nowhere near his 2022 pace in terms of production. A 20 for 26 passing game and a 115 QB rating off the back of a big rushing day would be a blessing for all parties involved.

One way to help this along: Oddly enough, the Tight End trio had some of their lowest snap counts of the year in Week One. Nobody recorded 50% of the offensive snaps and they were a bit of an afterthought as the Seahawks could not get the offense working in the second half of the game.

A return to 12-Personnel sets would give this team some muscle in the run game and give the quarterback some very attractive options in the short to mid-range passing game.

Defend the pass better

When we look back at that Week One game, the horrible offensive performance is what seems to have been stamped in our minds. But the defense was a confused, uncoordinated mess too.

The Seahawks managed zero sacks and only three pressures the whole game for a 7.7% pressure rate on Stafford. That’s about as calm a day any NFL quarterback could ask for.

The Seahawks kept switching their defense up, hoping something would stop the offense. This caused communication issues, misalignments and the Rams took advantage nearly every single time.

Whenever they rushed only four and dropped seven, they simply ran the ball on that light front or Stafford still found open receivers and picked them apart on in-breaking routes again and again. Puka Nacua burst onto the scene with 10 catches for 119 yards in his first NFL game in an impressive performance.

Now to be fair, the Seahawks have since tightened up and been more solidified as a unit — particularly on the in-breaking routes.

But a new (and yet old) defensive problem has emerged for Sean McVay to scheme to attack this defense: the Running Back pass.

It is an old weakness that had not really gone away but has just recently been exploited by opponents in 2023. It reared its ugly head Sunday against the Commanders. The running backs Brian Robinson and Antonio Gibson combined for 11 catches for 161 yards and two touchdowns. Several plays were ugly coverage breakdowns by the Seahawks and the Commanders exploited them to great effect.

Now the Seahawks currently stand – once again – as one of the worst teams in the NFL in defending running backs in the passing game.

That throws into sharp relief a paradox that has been growing and growing the last few weeks: If Riq Woolen (78 QB Rat/51% comp rate Allowed), Tre Brown (75/65%) and Devon Witherspoon (80/55%) have been so stunningly effective so far this season, why are the Seahawks in the bottom half of the NFL in pass defense?

Two problems were revealed Sunday by the Commanders: On both of their big running back catch plays, they found Boye Mafe (51 yards) and Dre Jones (48 yards) in coverage on their backs and exploited that for 99 yards.

Call it luck, call it scheming genius, call it whatever you want. There is absolutely zero chance that those plays escaped Sean McVay’s attention.

They simply cannot happen Sunday and yet the likelihood given this defense’s history against the Rams seems high that they will. How can the Seahawks mitigate the damage? That brings us to the other piece of the puzzle.

Yards after catch

Both of those explosive plays were obviously fuelled by the yards after the catch. Yet it isn’t simply a problem of singular big plays. It is a challenge the very middle of the defense is experiencing on a regular basis.

Julian Love (109 QBR/75% comp rate), Bobby Wagner (105/74%) and Jordyn Brooks (94/82%) comprise a little over a third of the defensive targets in the passing game this year for the Seahawks. Those numbers – particularly for the linebackers – look ugly — and they are. Yet often times they are guarding the dump-offs, where a completion is simple and so QB Rating and Completion % are rightly pretty high. So, keep that in mind.

However – and this is a big however – the yards after catch allowed are a problem for this trio. They have allowed 468 yards after the catch, accounting for 20% of the defense’s passing yardage conceded. The two linebackers have conceded 331 of those yards after catch.

How does the team solve this?

More consistent pressure on the quarterback is a great start. That can slow down every process and make things harder.

The other way to solve it is so simple it almost is ridiculous to mention.

Tackle guys. Get them to the ground. Tackling has again been a problem for the Seahawks this year. They have 60 missed tackles as a team per Pro Football Reference and the Love/Wagner/Brooks trio has 16 of those.

We have seen runners and receivers pinballing off of defenders who are not in good form to tackle. That is unacceptable. The Seahawks simply must not allow receivers the chance to make more football moves after receiving the ball.

The Rams do not have a deep running back group and this is Matt Stafford’s first game back after a thumb injury. They will likely try all kinds of short passes and clever edge runs of wide receivers to get the offense in gear and ease Stafford back into the game.

This is not some deep mystery. They have done it – and done it well – against Seattle for years.

If the Seahawks want to control this game flow, they must tackle well, cover tightly and be schemed to close these weaknesses and give the offense the ball back.

    Good work cha.

    One thing missing from your analysis is (& this could be included in the analysis for every match-up for the last, maybe, 8 years) is to adjust to the opponent’s game plan. The thing that I miss most about the LOB era Seahawks is that they were all but invincible in the second half of games. If a team didn’t get ahead by at least a couple of touchdowns in the first half then you could switch off the TV safe in the knowledge that they were toast & the Seahawks coaching team would take away their lunch money in Q3 & Q4.

    I also nearly choked on my cup of tea when you included Jamal Adams as a key player. Unless he is the one that organises the Christmas Party & secret Santa gifts, I really don’t see what he contributes to the team beyond sucking away a big chunk of the salary cap. But I won’t dwell on the point!

    • bdawg17

      Did we adapt more effectively in the LOB time, or were just so nails – not to mention talented – with our base/standard defensive scheme that we were as as successful we were?

      • DriveByPoster

        Fair question. I do think you have to give the coaches credit but, of course, you are right that the quality of players is a big factor. But that, in itself, says everything about the currect Seahawks team, right?

  2. UkAlex6674

    This isn’t a tune up game.

    It’s a game v the Rams, and should be part of the acknowledged brutal stretch given how the teams are v each other, and recent history.

    • Rokas

      I agree. We are underdogs according go Vegas, so it’s a tough game, not a game where “playing down to the opposition” can be applied.

  3. Troy

    Great analysis as always cha.

    I have little optimism for this game. Seattle is the better team, but the Rams always play us with Super Bowl effort and intensity.

    McVay owns Carroll. Please prove me wrong.

    24-20 Rams.

    • Big Mike

      100% agree Troy. Carroll is McVay’s bi…..proive us both wrong Pete

      Thanks as always cha. Good stuff.

      • Romeo A57

        I am visiting relatives in Florida and will probably miss the game today.

        I also expect a Seahawks loss, prove me wrong!

  4. Peter

    Pretty excited for this game. Two very even opponents both trending in different directions record wise.

    I like Cha’s first key point. Do not feel them out. Run the rock. Getting the win against WAS was necessary but far too hard to get there in the end. Seattle is/was the better team. Engaging in shootouts with bad teams doesn’t show me anything.

    It’s such a boring statement but Seattle is poor on third downs for and against. We’ve seen a few examples of the runninbacks getting great yardage only to abandon it for a qb who is in an off year.

    I’d love to see them ’86 the jamal missed blitzes and get Witherspoon going on that. Problem is obvious of course that JA is just a guy in coverage and Witherspoon is having quite the year.

    The usage of the TE’s is laughable. Last year half the commenters were singing the praises and now each one is getting around a target a game. Such an advantage they are leaving on the table.

    As ha ha funny it is to see Seattle finally use a screen pass occasionally on the defense I’m concerned how Seattle plans to stop Kupp and Nacua. The middle of the field has been a liability for forever. Was grateful that WAS did not figure that out sooner.

    Oh and to repeat myself: Run the Ball!! The rams are objectively mediocre to poor in stopping the run.

    • Big Mike

      I’d love to see them ’86 the jamal missed blitzes

      But if you do that you give up all hope of somehow, some way justifying 2 firsts a 4th and 18 million dollars a year and saving face/ego is clearly the most important aspect of the Adams debacle.

      • Peter

        I expect a win today. In what has been an absolute slog to get to 7-3. The reason why Seattle has a minus 100+ point differential from the niners is this team no longer “always competes.”

        Last game: qb can’t throw for a half and WAS with two great IDL is not good at stopping the run, so..lets keep throwing it..

        High praise for the multi TE sets….let’s keep chucking it to JSN to get him going. And I like JSN but the TE usage last year when the team was a top offense to this year is abysmal.

        And there’s JA. A bog standard safety. Who seems to have lost whatever he may have had years ago and let’s play him like the weapon when the real weapon is standing on the field next to him. It feels like 2-3 maybe 4 weeks in a row where he’s ‘just’ nearly got to the qb. But he can’t close and he can’t stone anyone anymore. And it feels like they are now counting on Witherspoon to be the eraser that Earl was because the safeties are middling to awful.

        • Peter

          The TE’s have been targeted 12 total times in the last three games. So I was correct that it’s nearly one target per TE per game. Awful.

          I know it’s not on JSN nor can everything be directly related….


          JSN: 48 targets, 33 receptions, 325 yards, 2 tds

          Fant: 20 targets, 16 receptions, 232 yards, 0 tds.

          It just feels like there’s an untapped level the team could be getting out of TE’s and Fant specifically.

          • Rob Staton

            They don’t know what to do to make the most of their weapons. Rather than it be a challenging guessing game for opponents, it’s more of a riddle for the Seahawks.

            • Jabroni-DC

              Pete’s DNA requires an All Pro blocking TE that is capable of being a great receiver. Zach Miller was the only one he’s had in Seattle that matched what he actually wants from the position. The playoff game vs Atlanta is the only standout performance stats wise that I recall Zach having in Seattle even though he led Oakland in receiving for 3 straight years.

            • Peter

              This is the perfect way to describe it. A riddle.

    • RMK-LouCityHawk

      Agree 100% with you and CHA, never has it seemed so obvious that a heavy run game to start makes the most sense, run it and dictate the flow

      Defensively, I just don’t see a fix. The personnel isn’t there, the scheme doesn’t help.

      I wonder if they will start to invest in lighter LB or heavier DB who is better suited to cover and tackle.

      • Peter

        The defense is going to be what it is this year.

        Going forward it does seem a personnel, schematic change is needed.

        Folks of course are going to say are the safeties spend on dlinemen. I wish it were so.

        This year just feels like taking lumps to be taking them. Short of a revelation if you think Seattle is this year, next year, two years away from title contention it isn’t happening with just Witherspoon as the blue chip player. Depending on your counting the last time Seattle got there it was three or four ( Sherman, earl, young Bobby, kam) who were the best or at the best in the league.

        • Peter

          Axe the safeties.

  5. Sten

    It’s important more than ever to put the Rams away early. We’ve got no chance against the Niners if we’re trying to get a game-winning drive in the 4th while the Niners are sitting Deebo and Mccaffrey because theyre up 30-3.

  6. ShowMeYourHawk

    Man, we need this L.A. win badly. I see us going 1-3 the following four weeks, with that one win as an “any given Sunday” type of victory. Really hope we can take the Thanksgiving game, both because we’ll need it for divisional leverage and because my 49er loving family will be over for the holiday watching the game.

  7. Peter

    If I seem nitpicking on the draftable qbs it’s not that I don’t like them I’m just turning over stones and crossing ‘t’s’ dotting ‘i’s’.

    That said I was very stoked to see Ewers clean stuff up as the game went on. Arm as advertised by Rob. The only criticism I have and need to see if this was just a glitch or all the time, but his fake handoffs maybe defenses can’t see it but he needs to get a little tighter. Telegraphs pass pretty badly. Some qbs do such a good job with it, both handing it off and holding to throw, that they get a late hit penalty flag called onTaylor when he is doing his sack dance….

    Ewers. Remains in the qb stakes with continued reservations that Pete doesn’t have the great development system that’s alleged.

  8. Blitzy the Clown

    Curtis must be hoarse from saying it:

    Run. The. Damn. Ball.

    • cha

      Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined the Seahawks’ offensive problems would be “they have too many talented players and can’t find a way to spread the ball around.”

      But here we are…

  9. Henry

    I’ve seen Bo Nix in the top 10 of a ton of mock drafts. Outside of a Stroud vs Georgia performance in the playoffs, I don’t see how any team could draft him in the first, let alone top 10

    • Rob Staton

      Nonsense talk from anyone projecting that

    • AlaskaHawk

      At least wait and watch the Nix vs Penix competition in the game coming up before projecting them higher!

  10. Rob Staton

    The Commanders, who we scraped by last week, currently being crushed by… the Giants

    • Peter

      Come on man. 1 minute earlier on pressing send🤣

  11. Peter

    Any given Sunday amirite….

    Of course the G-men would jump out to a solid lead against WAS.

  12. Trevor

    DTR is exactly the type of mid to late round QB the Hawks should have taken at some point over the last couple of drafts. I know Rob was pretty high on him and rightfully so.

    Really hope the Hawks don’t try to get cute this draft and just take thier guy in RD #1 ideally Spencer Rattler but Penix and the kid from Texas are other options. The fact we had so much draft capital and didn’t even get a developmental QB to me seems like a wasted opportunity.

    Last thing CJ Stroud is crazy good for a rookie and looks like the guy who lit up Georgia week in and week out. Sometimes teams overthink guys like Stroud and Herbert.

    • Rob Staton

      I also think DTR is a cautionary note. To me he looks out of his depth. His release suddenly looks so slow and elongated. In college he was a fantastic playmaker but now he looks overwhelmed slightly. Early in his career but still.

    • Peter

      Other terms that are misused: MVP

      Currently there is no one outside of maybe Garret who has been more VALUABLE as a player than Stroud this year.

      I think Lanar wins because it’s a popularity contest. But they have been good mostly the whole time he’s been on that team. Valuable? Sure. But more valuable than Stroud? Doubt it.

  13. Trevor

    Jim Nagy and the guys at the Senior Bowl have been killing it the last couple of years.

    Never heard of Tank Dell till the Senior Bowl. He lit it up there and now is lighting it up on Sunday.
    So many examples like him.

  14. Rob Staton

    Jamal Adams is OUT today

    • Peter

      Knee? Corbin Smith made me groan but was right…it can take a full year of activity to work through complications.

    • Big Mike


      • bmseattle

        It’s ok… I think he’s already proven his worth and justified his contract this year.

        • Big Mike

          Every game he’s ever played actually.

          • Peter

            Pretty bummed. Who’s gonna do all the little things on defense that keeps the unit firing on all cyl….. oh wait, my bad.

    • Sea Mode

      Why do I get the feeling I wouldn’t have even noticed had you not mentioned it… 🤷‍♂️

    • cha

      Remember last year how any criticism of Quandre Diggs was met with a stern “he’s still recovering from a serious injury!” ?

      I remember posting that Adams might never return from that injury that even if he did, 2023 would be like Diggs’ 2022. That was met with scorn and derision from Seahawks Twitter.

      Now this.

      The Seahawks doubling down on this duo with restructuring has already proven to be a disaster.

      Imagine what the Seahawks could do with $34million more cap in 2024 if they’d done what I proposed in January and sent those two packing.

      • Rob Staton

        Diggs & Adams are elite players Curtis

        You’re just a hater

        Ask Quandre

        • cha

          Dugar, Michael-Shawn
          The anti-Quandre stuff this year from Seahawks fans has been very strange considering what his film looks like. He’s paid like a top-10 safety and has played like it.

          • Sten

            It’s sad the seahawks think this given he’s their in-house journalist

          • bmseattle

            I guess no contract is too large for a player as amazing as a guy who “plays like a top-10 safety.

            • Peter

              Diggs should get Dugar to write a murray style manifesto about why he should be paid as much as Adams next year. According to hawks best practices he’d have a point.

          • Anthony

            MSD is so desperate for the players to like him. The team could be 0-11 and he’d say “they’re just a bounce here and there from being a winning team.”

            • Rob Staton

              100% spot on

              Sucking up to players happens so much these days with social media so prevalent

              MSD not the only one who does it either

          • Rob Staton

            Well if MSD says it, it must be true

      • Peter

        Priors confirmed

      • Sea Mode

        It really should be considered a fireable offense. Oh well, we’re stuck with PC until he decides to walk I guess.

        • Big Mike

          The trade for Adams was a firable offense. Doubling down on the contract restructuring just makes it even more so.

          • Peter

            In 2021 he played at a non elite level. To continue this until 2025 is part of why Seattle won’t win with current model Pete.

            • Big Mike


  15. icb12

    ESPN headline: “jets to pursue Adams trade in off-season”

    I was temporarily both extremely elated and confused.

    Then I realized they were referring to Davante. Damnit.

    • Rob Staton

      Same when I saw that 😂

    • BK26

      Right there with ya. Then as the article loaded, reality hit me….

  16. Trevor

    This is a huge game for the Hawks. If they loose today in all likelihood they will be 6-8 by Xmas Eve.

  17. Peter

    I mean. Jared GOOF is more like it…

    Glad my team isn’t slated to pay him 31+ million dollars next year for mid level results….


    Is this thing on? I’ll see myself out.

  18. Palatypus

    I hope everyone is ready for some McKayla Maroney-level disappointment today.

  19. Peter

    Herbert and Allen need new coaches in the worst way.

  20. STTBM

    Good grief! In Montana, CBS dropped Seattle vs LA to show Jets vs Bills. You gotta be kidding me…

    • Big Mike

      That’s bullshit

    • Peter

      Join me by listening on Kiro 😅

      • STTBM

        I love Raible but had to listen all through the 90s when even in King County games were blacked out. Too many flashbacks….guess I’ll go clean out my car…

        • Peter

          That’s too good.

  21. Blitzy the Clown

    Spoon with the early sack

  22. Big Mike

    Call the holding on Mafe please

  23. Blitzy the Clown

    I’d say the pash rush is a wee bit improved from their first meeting

  24. BrandoK

    Spoon is so good

  25. AlaskaHawk

    Good start for the defense!

  26. Peter

    Checks notes….

  27. Blitzy the Clown

    Why pass on 2nd and 4?


    • btc

      I don’t want to harp too much but that 2nd down call was atrocious and emblematic of what’s wrong with the offense.

      Great opening play to pick up 6 on Walker’s run. Go back to him. Let him pick up the 1st down and establish the run.

      Why pass? And why some awful lateral play that gives the defense time to catch up?

  28. Big Mike


    • Big Mike

      Screen to Bobo

  29. AlaskaHawk

    Wow do the Seahawks telegraph the run.

    You know when I think about it, Lockett is the only consistently good thing about the Seahawks offense over the years. I’ll add in early Russell Wilson to that list also. But not Marshawn because he wasn’t here very long.

    • Hawkster


  30. Palatypus

    I thought that was a pretty cheap unnecessary roughness call. In wrestling, we call that a tilt.

  31. BrandoK

    Just keep running the ball this game

  32. Peter

    There it is. Love seeing the run to set up the…you get it.

  33. Big Mike

    Any chance he caught that with the right foot in bounds and on the turf? Doesn’t look good

  34. cha

    Is it really a play-action if Geno fakes the handoff to…no one?

    • Palatypus

      Clearly, Sasquatch was right there.

  35. Blitzy the Clown

    Wow that was a helluva 3rd down conversion pass to JSN

  36. Peter

    4 pass 4 run.

    That’s the recipe.

  37. BrandoK

    Walker looked like he got injured

    • Big Mike

      Yeah he’s in the tent

  38. Peter

    Fingers crossed its nothing for walker coming off the field.

  39. Big Mike

    Excellent ball placement by Smith

    • Big Mike

      Disagree with the announcer you put it where only DK could catch it

  40. Blitzy the Clown

    Superb catch DK

  41. AlaskaHawk

    Nice drive, just what we like to see.

  42. Blitzy the Clown

    Quick start on offense? ✓

  43. BrandoK

    this should be the game plan for geno to get the ball out quickly he just so often holds the ball way too long

  44. Peter

    7:30 minutes off the clock.

    Ball control is where it’s at.

    • cha

      6 runs / 8 passes and one of those was a “pass” to Bobo on a screen.

      I can dig it.

      That’s on the heels of a 2-QB-hit, 3and out Rams series.

      Follow the formula, boyos.

  45. Tallyhawk

    Geno looked calm and stood tall in the pocket. For not the first time this season a very efficient drive on the scripted plays…can both continue?

  46. Henry Taylor

    Hell of an opening drive

  47. AlaskaHawk

    Despite the success of the passing game, I still want to see the Seahawks run the ball. I don’t want it all on Geno Smiths arm. Just mix in those runs without telegraphing them, and wear the Rams out.

  48. Sea Mode

    Verrrry nice.

  49. Troy

    What stood out that drive to me, how crisp and accurate Geno was. Despite some pressure he was on point, on time, and damn that was nice. Also running game doing its thing, let’s just hope they keep it up

  50. Big Mike

    Safeties man

  51. BrandoK

    Love is terrible

  52. Kyle R

    I’d be a hypocrite if I didn’t say it, so nice play calling and mix by the OC and good execution by the players on that offensive drive.

  53. BrandoK

    can we cut all of these safeties

  54. Palatypus

    Our group of safeties should be called The Ministry of Love.

    Because watching them is torture.

  55. Rob Staton

    Wow Cooper Kupp

    Don’t see him drop those

    • AlaskaHawk

      He just came back from an injury so a little rusty??

    • Rob Staton

      He made up for it by overpowering elite safety Quandre Diggs

  56. Kyle R

    Well thank God that wasn’t caught because that was just a little blown coverage.

  57. Big Mike

    Nice tackle Diggs

    • Rob Staton

      Can only assume a fly flew into his helmet

      Diggs is elite so would never make a mistake

  58. Blitzy the Clown

    The refs missed a clear hold on Dremont Jones but called a really slight OPI on Kupp ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  59. KennyBadger

    Nice tackle Q.

    • Pack of K9s

      He does not provide much value to the defense. I think they can get more from a 3rd round rookie.

  60. Kyle R

    There was Diggs with the stellar coverage and sure tackling.

    • Sea Mode

      You just don’t understand the game all that well.


  61. BrandoK

    Diggs is terrible cant wrap up at all

  62. nfendall

    They are calling this game really tight.

  63. BrandoK

    Another PI WTF

  64. Blitzy the Clown

    Frank Clark totally whiffed

    • BrandoK

      I forgot he was even out there

  65. Pran

    Consistently inconsistent and undisciplined defense

  66. Kyle R

    The way they are calling this game with the flags we are going to be in for a loooong game.

  67. BrandoK

    what injury does adams have now?

  68. Big Mike

    Please just get Adams off my TV screen

  69. nfendall

    Nice stand at the goal line!

  70. Blitzy the Clown

    Tre Brown with the sure coverage

  71. VanHawk

    Please, please can we not break to Adams on the sideline after every defensive play.

    • VanHawk

      Should have known Big Mike already had this covered…

      • Big Mike


      • Peter


    • Big Mike


    • GlastoHawkUK

      His knee is holding up well

  72. BrandoK

    Good coverage by Brown

    • Big Mike

      It really was

  73. Big Mike

    So if Zach runs for nearly a 100 today are we gonna hear from all the seahawks Twitter dolts that said drafting another running back in the second round was a mistake?

    • Kyle R

      I love drafting two great RBs two years in a row. Now it’s up to the OC to use them more than 40 percent of the time.

  74. Blitzy the Clown

    Where are the Charbonnet pick haters now?

    Pretty effen quiet from that gallery

    • Sea Mode


  75. BrandoK

    Damn K9 pretty much out the rest of the game

  76. Kyle R

    For Christ sake…we were second and five stop with the dumb offensive penalties

  77. GlastoHawkUK

    Our Safeties dreadful, weakest area of team. Lack of investment?

    • Big Mike

      Damn man you just hit on the problem. Awesome call by you!

    • Blitzy the Clown

      I’d like to see if Coby Bryant can’t bump off Love

  78. Sea Mode

    8 first downs already? I’m speechless.

  79. Blitzy the Clown

    Evan Brown looking pretty good today

  80. Kyle R

    Are they really even trying if 90 percent of the defensive salary cap doesn’t go to the safeties?

    • Peter

      Don’t look to me. I was calling for the 11 safety sets.

  81. Big Mike


  82. Peter

    52 straight redzone scoring drives snapped today. Great stand.

  83. cha

    That incompletion was on DK

    Poor cut and the ball bounced off his chest.

    Let’s calm all the talk of great coverage, guys

    • Big Mike

      Announcers 🙁

    • nfendall

      Agreed, I don’t get that route concept with DK. He needs to be a one cut and go type, not a juke and cut. That is more of a JSN or Lockett route to me.

  84. Peter

    Seahawks TO:

    Quality control coach must have seen eskridge on the field for 3rd and long.

    • cha

      Good one Peter. That got me

      • Peter


  85. Kyle R

    Great catch by JSN

  86. BrandoK

    Great catch by JSN but terrible throw by Geno

    • Big Mike


  87. cha

    And then there’s JSN making a Geno moon ball look great with a wonderful effort.

    Please announcers, stop praising the wrong guy.

  88. Peter

    Jsn and geno is looking sharp today.

    • Peter

      This is where radio fails me…

  89. Palatypus

    They’re saying K9 has an oblique injury. Probably worried it was another hernia.

  90. Kyle R

    JSN could teach DK a thing or two about how to high point a ball

    • BrandoK

      so true

  91. Sea Mode

    Did that ball move when it hit the ground…? (JSN catch)

  92. Big Mike

    Third and one-stop being cute just hand the ball to Zack

  93. AlaskaHawk

    Even the announcers are willing to talk up the merits of running the ball. Too bad they didn’t do it on 3 and 1. Looks like they are reverting back to throwing the ball alot.

    • AlaskaHawk

      Yes to more Charbonnet.

  94. BrandoK

    why not run the ball with zach

  95. Kyle R

    At least they did that on 4th

  96. Peter

    Did you guys know RB’s aren’t important.

  97. Big Mike

    Is utterly undisciplined stupidity

  98. BrandoK

    Zach should get 25+ carries in this game

  99. BrandoK

    Geno with a Delay of game really after a penalty already

  100. Kyle R

    Jesus Christ offense what the hell. At this point we are only playing for field goal now

  101. Big Mike

    Myers is locked IN

  102. Blitzy the Clown

    Myers so money

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Thanks for the edit Rob. I never like misspelling a guy’s name

      In my defense, I am eating a lot of cheese as I watch and blog

    • king

      Famous last words!

  103. BrandoK

    i believe at the end of the game seattle will have 20+ penalties maybe more

  104. nfendall

    The penalties are frustrating, but I like the offensive game plan and play calling to this point. Good balance of run/pass, get the ball out Geno’s hands quick and control the clock.

  105. Peter

    Myers almost 33% of all of seahawks points this year.

    Breaking the odd year curse.

    • GoHawks5151

      I thought he was good on odd years?

      • Peter

        Just barely bad on odd years.

  106. Kyle R

    Love has made more of difference with that blitz than Adams has all year with his.

    • Big Mike

      18 million

      He’s an awesome cheerleader tho

    • Grossmandg144

      I think u r forgetting about his tryout for the Sounders play vs the Browns

      • Kyle R

        Was the skill or blind luck?

  107. Kyle R

    With Walker hurt this game it’s a shame Kenny McIntosh is inactive.

  108. Big Mike

    I feel like we’re seeing more creative blitzing this year than we have in your spouse or am I just misremembering?

    • Blitzy the Clown

      No sounds right. My spouse was never a creative blitzer

      • Big Mike


      • Kyle R

        I don’t know mine has blindsided me a few times.

    • Big Mike

      *years past

  109. BrandoK

    when ever Dallas runs I always think he’ll fumble the ball with the way he holds the ball

  110. Blitzy the Clown

    Love it!

  111. Peter

    3 to 1 time of possession…

    It’s weird how love and spoon can also blitz…

  112. Big Mike

    Run him again

    • Big Mike

      *not wide

  113. Peter

    It’s like you say Wyman….there’s a lot of play action.

  114. Troy

    Stafford isn’t looking accurate or comfortable out there, cha’s pointing out how he struggles early is spot on!

  115. BrandoK

    Really Geno WTF

  116. Kyle R

    For how good our offense has looked today we should have more than 13 points. Damn self inflicted wounds.

  117. 12th chuck

    I thought I was watching MTV, old jackass show, but the cameramen keep showing Jamal Adams.

    • Big Mike

      Post of the week

  118. Sten

    Waldron needs to draw up a half page playbook for these goal and 20 plays

  119. Peter

    Inside each of us is two seahawks.

    One looks sharp as hell.

    The other is trying to find how many penalties is too many to keep the Rams in the game.

  120. Blitzy the Clown

    Where’s Boye Mafe?

    • Palatypus

      Great minds think alike.

    • 916MikeD

      Blitzy I was just getting ready to post that

  121. Palatypus

    Where is Boye Mafe?

    • Big Mike

      He got held badly on about the second drop back of the game. Since then good question

  122. KnoxHawk

    Have you guys noticed the increased rotations? Both on offense and defense. I’m guessing they are looking to not beat up our most important players, with the game coming up Thursday.

  123. Bobby54

    I know its hard to believe. But Frank Clark is worse than Taylor defensing the run.

  124. Kyle R

    Screens and the edges is where you can attack this defense so far today.

  125. BrandoK

    Is it just me or does Frank Clark look terrible out there

  126. Kyle R

    Nice sure tackle by Spoon there!

  127. BrandoK

    Seattle playing Clark over the younger guys reminds me of last year with burce irvin

    • Palatypus

      He’s back in.

  128. king

    I freaking love the creativity on offense and the aggressiveness on defense. Where was this in the RW era?

  129. Blitzy the Clown

    Mafe’s back out there

  130. Big Mike

    2 FGs instead of say a TD and a FG now biting us

    • BrandoK

      Yep very ture

    • Kyle R

      When you’re marching down field but can only come away with a field goal because of self infected errors it really is so deflating.

  131. nfendall

    Geno’s 150 yards at half feel so much better than we had that last week.

  132. Kyle R

    Rams have us right were they want us with Cooper out and Puka Nacua in. Killed us the first time.

    • Palatypus

      First they have to put a QB in the game that they signed off the street.

    • SEAhemoth82

      Poor Cooper Kupp, the man cannot catch a break. However, I cannot get out of my head in regards to his resemblance to Hans Klopek, the creepy neighbor “The Burbs”.

  133. Big Mike

    Get the ball to start the 2nd. A TD on that possession would be a good thing.

    • nfendall


  134. Blitzy the Clown

    Since it’s halftime, shout out to Washington for their win last night in Corvallis

    They deserve to be in the CFP

    • 12th chuck

      They should disqualify Michigan, but they won’t.

    • Big Mike

      They won’t get there after Oregon Beecham in the Pac 12 championship game

      Sincerely wish to be wrong

      • Big Mike

        *beats them

  135. Blitzy the Clown

    If Geno ever makes it to Canton, his induction inscription whatever has to be ‘ain’t write back’

    • James

      Maybe the hall of mediocrity in Hillsboro.

  136. Big Mike

    Catch the damn ball Will

  137. Kyle R

    Uncle Will earning the big bucks with that drop

  138. Blitzy the Clown

    Turnover worthy play

    • Rokas

      Also defensive holding worth play.

  139. Kyle R

    I know it’s the modern NFL but there is nothing wrong with a run play on 3rd and 2.

    • Big Mike

      Especially when you have a power type back

      • Kyle R

        Exactly I have little double he could have got two yards. Hell might have even caught them a little off guard.

  140. Scot04

    3 straight passes. SMH

  141. Pran

    Shane is good at scripting one or two drives per game, besides that zero feel for game. He has hit his ceiling. Jittery Geno is back…get ready

    • SEAhemoth82

      Now I’m not defending Shane Waldron, but I have been wondering/questioning in regards to not only the execution of Waldron’s weekly gameplan (which I do think is legitimate concern), but Geno Smith’s ability to digest Waldron’s playbook. Is it possibly to complex? Is the playbook completely open?

  142. Big Mike

    Is about time they made a holding call

  143. nfendall


  144. Kyle R

    Mafe making an appearance today!

    • Big Mike

      And he’s the guy that created the holding call too.

      • Kyle R

        Him, Spoon and Reed have been the bright spots this year on Defense.

  145. Big Mike

    Now take advantage of the field position offense!

  146. 509 Chris

    God the announcers and halftime show are so clearly pro rams. Sometimes I only want Seattle teams to win to remind the rest of the country the west coast is more than just California.

  147. Kyle R

    We got it but hate the play call on 4th and 1

  148. Peter

    Cripes on a pogo stick.

    • Kyle R

      The last two games Seattle should just stop and kick a field goal once they get to the 30 no matter the down. It’s not like we’d get anything more than a field goal anyway.

  149. Big Mike

    I would have kicked the 55 yarder

    • Peter

      Myers the mvp 10 games in.

  150. BrandoK

    Geno holds the ball way way to long

  151. Peter

    Broken clocks and blind squirrels. This is a game where Pete could say “we just have to clean some things up,” and he’d be right.

  152. Big Mike

    But the 52 yarder will work as well

    Really fortunate that third down pass was not intercepted.

  153. Pran

    Oh boy.. they do hate to run the ball and instead have HOF Geno throw risky passes..

  154. Sea Mode

    High snap. Great job by Dickson there.

  155. AlaskaHawk

    Looks like the Rams are turning up the heat defensively. We better hope our defense can hold them.

    The Way they are rushing Geno Smith, this is going to go downhill fast. More running plays please. Also why is the offensive line making these stupid holding calls. This is a coaching issue.

  156. BrandoK

    Is Seattle not running the ball anymore?

    • Peter

      Up in a game….let’s make it as hard as possible from here on out.

      • BrandoK

        Yeah Pete never wants an easy game make it a nail baiter and decided in the 4th quarter

        • Peter

          Geno playing ho-hum. Let’s do a 60/40 pass run

  157. Peter

    In other news. Reports of the niners demise seem greatly exaggerated.

    • Big Mike

      As long as they’re healthy…

      • Peter

        Sure. But they are and they are killing a lesser team.

        • Big Mike

          Exactly my point
          It may be hyperbole but I’m not sure they lose another game if they keep everybody health

          • Peter

            My bad my friend.

          • Palatypus

            They got CMC going early and it set everything up for Purdy, who is having a great day.

  158. Pran

    I don’t understand how there is no defender within 5 yards of Puka most of the times

  159. Kyle R

    Damn Spoon is such a sure tackler I love it!

  160. Pack of K9s

    Defense looks great. Offense needs to stop putting so much on Geno. He ain’t that guy and there is nothing wrong with that. It does mean run run pass is a good idea though. I feel confident that committing to the run early will yield results late in games

  161. Kyle R


    • Big Mike

      I’ll come on man getting sacked is better right?

    • KnoxHawk

      For real. So frustrating.

  162. Palatypus

    They should have snapped the ball when the Rams were shuffling their line like that.

  163. BrandoK

    what a surprise another punt

  164. Peter

    No where to throw the ball…how about away.

    • Pran

      Which only results in intentional grounding..

      • Peter

        For Geno maybe. 40 years of football shows ne you can throw the ball out and towards a reciever to live another day.

        • Pran

          We have Geno though

          • Peter

            Nicely played I literally laughed.

  165. Kyle R

    No damn excuse for Geno to have over 40 passing attempts this game but he will.

    • Big Mike


  166. Big Mike

    We could use a turnover
    Mafe strip sack?

    • Peter

      Yeah feels like we need something anything to seal the game away.

  167. Palatypus

    In other news, the Bills and Jets are beating the crap out of each other and the Bills have seriously bad luck with injuries.

  168. Big Mike

    That’s a badly blown coverage and 6 points if he doesn’t overthrow

    • Pran

      No defender in the zip

      • Palatypus

        I think he may have been Frank Clark’s responsibility.

  169. KennyBadger

    Tampa getting a little frisky…

  170. Big Mike

    Why is Haynes starting over Bradford?

    • BrandoK

      Pete trust him more for some reason

      • Peter

        Bradford is a rookie and Pete loves that holding them back development plan

    • Peter

      Veteran presence.

    • 509 Chris

      Is Bradford hurt still? I thought maybe he was.

      • Peter

        Maybe this.

  171. BrandoK

    Lock time

  172. James

    Get happy feet out of there! Time for Drew Lock?

  173. Peter

    Dissly getting the big bucks play.

    Aaron donald is undefeated against our qbs.

    • Big Mike

      He has owned every interior defensive lineman we’ve ever put out there in front of him

      • SEAhemoth82

        Aaron Donald is the closest resemblance to Lawrence Taylor I’ve seen on the football field. He is incredible, every Sunday.

  174. 509 Chris

    Lock baby! Sorry for Geno though hoep its not serious

  175. KnoxHawk

    Run the fu***** ball. This is complete bull. Waldron needs to figure it the f out

    • 509 Chris

      All in all very uninspired play calling

  176. KennyBadger

    Well Drew Lock fans…

  177. seaspunj

    need to Lock it down

  178. Big Mike

    And why are we trying to block likely the greatest defensive tackle of all time one-on-one withh Phil Haynes?

  179. AlaskaHawk

    Zip it (the pass) and put a lock on it (the game).

  180. Sten

    Not very high on Geno these days but damn Donald is a bastard

  181. Big Mike

    Like most of you I do wish we were running the football more. However with Walker out I understand you don’t wanna overuse Zach

    • AlaskaHawk

      They got to use some time up and it won’t happen with the incomplete passes.

    • Kyle R

      Still trust Dallas then to spell him and continue with running plays. Passing 3 out of 4 times just doesn’t work against this D

  182. BrandoK

    JSN never looked for the ball

  183. Palatypus

    That was a beautiful backdrop. A fine example of Greco Roman technique.

    • Rokas


  184. AlaskaHawk

    WTF, this is football refs. What the heck, I wonder if he hadn’t posed afterwards if they would have let it sliP?

  185. Kyle R

    Nice bullshit penalty 10 minutes after it happened

  186. GoHawks5151

    Fucking weak call on Spoon

    • Big Mike

      They made the same weak call against the Rams early in the game. Can you say evening the playing field?

    • Palatypus

      The Rams were flagged for far less earlier in the game. If we had the Jets/Bills refs it would be “no blood, no foul.”

  187. Big Mike

    Woolen not fooled

  188. Peter

    Give me a bleeping break on that call.

  189. Kyle R

    Beautiful D play all around! Hit on Stafford and the INT!

  190. Peter

    Yeah buddy.

  191. Henry Taylor

    That is a get your qb killed play design

  192. AlaskaHawk

    Yes = who smacked Stafford?? Good play! And Woolen is playing pretty good today.

    • Sea Mode

      Mario Edwards. Hit him like a freight train. Ouch.

      • Pran

        Best play of the day to pay back Donald.

        It’s Lock time for next few weeks

    • SEAhemoth82

      Cam Young??

      • SEAhemoth82

        Nice call on that one Sea Mode

  193. Pran

    Two deep shots on 2 3rd down plays…ridiculous play calling

  194. Palatypus

    Just for the record, that backdrop is illegal in high school wrestling pretty much everywhere, because you can break someone’s neck.

    • AlaskaHawk

      I wonder if he would have got away with it if he hadn’t posed over his trophy?

  195. KnoxHawk

    So much for a hot start on third down. Did all 4 of our conversions come on the first drive? Now we are 4 for 13….

    • AlaskaHawk

      Wish the Seahawks had built up a bigger cushion. Fortunately the Rams have played down to our level = so far.

    • Palatypus

      Well, he did turn his hips, so maybe. He didn’t drop him into a pinning combination.

  196. Big Mike

    It was about time for the defense to do this

    • Peter

      Why do we play every game at every teams level.

      • Kyle R

        Coaching. Pure and simple.

        • Peter

          That time we had 200 yards to their 19….

          • Kyle R

            I’ve come to the conclusion our 2012-14 teams won on talent and the players nothing to do with the coaching.

            • Pran


              It also helped that league did not figure out Pete’s D until 14

              • Peter

                It’s been feeling that way for a while.

      • dand393

        Well not every teams level, BALTIMORE game comes to mind

        • Peter

          The second I pressed send I regretted that omission.

  197. Kyle R

    As usual much better balance and play calling from the Rams

  198. Palatypus

    Don’t they normally get away with that?

  199. AlaskaHawk

    I just looked up Seahawks stats, 29 passes and 19 runs. Not what we hoped for.

    Defense wise they are reverting back to their Stage Name = Hot Butter!

  200. Big Mike

    Utterly shit call

    • AlaskaHawk

      Yes nice flop!

  201. Kyle R

    Jesus Christ that is a terrible call he fucking tripped and fell

  202. Palatypus


  203. AlaskaHawk

    Yes this 4th quarter is getting painful now. I don’t even know what to say that would help the Seahawks!
    You got to dig deep?? Because the Rams have leveled up their play.

  204. Henry Taylor

    Dreadful, game changing call. But I can’t believe this game is as close as it is.

    • Peter

      That call was hot garbage. But Seattle has nearly doubled their total yards with penalties today.

  205. Peter

    Sad trombone

  206. Tony

    Game changing bad call by refs.

    • Big Mike

      And if the NFL would employ a sky judge he would have overturned that call and would have been fourth down

      So interesting that they won’t do it when it’s been called for by numerous people for quite some time

      • Palatypus

        But not Las Vegas.

        • AlaskaHawk

          Yes what happened to the New York review? Surely some camera caught the flop?

  207. seaspunj

    typical Seahawks football down to a 1 possession game.

  208. Kyle R

    We need a nice long drive of a balanced mix of running and passing ending in TD to ice this damn game.

    • Peter

      But what we are going to get is anyone’s guess.

      • Kyle R

        I predict pass pass pass punt

        • Big Mike

          You were close

          • Kyle R

            Waldron forgot he’s allowed to call more than 20 run plays in a game

  209. Pran

    Well.. Lock is not earning much playtime either. Time to draft a QB

    • Big Mike

      Levis was available *shrug*

  210. BrandoK

    Awful play calls

    • Pran

      Can we fire Shane

    • IHeartTacoma

      The whole second half has been a joke

  211. Scot04

    God forbid we run the ball.

  212. Kyle R

    Almost right hahaha….shit

  213. nfendall

    And there is the sideline fade call. At least it is about the same as a punt.

  214. BrandoK

    has seattle forgotten how to run the ball

  215. Palatypus

    Earlier today, I saw a Las Vegas Raiders player’s cleats decorated with hearts, spades, clubs, and diamonds.

    A bad omen.

  216. seaspunj

    i am embracing for the worst …. ugh this is git wrenching

  217. Pran

    It’s a miracle if we win this game. All the coaches can be left behind in LA

  218. Kyle R

    “we want to be the bully again” Well fucking do it and play like it then!

  219. Pack of K9s

    That was such a horrible offensive sequence. I blame the OC three straight passes with a back up QB was stupid

  220. nfendall

    The refs are seeing so much that are seeing the “imperceptible”

    • bmseattle

      yeah, that was a good one

  221. Palatypus

    We are on the precipice of McKayla Maroney’s level of disappointment.

  222. Big Mike

    Good idea let’s call penalty on a guy that had nothing to do with the actual play

  223. seaspunj

    seriously so many penalties this is ridiculous

  224. Big Mike

    In my opinion that was our chance to hold on and win the game

  225. AlaskaHawk

    All these penalties on both sides are driving me crazy. We really deserve to just play each other game after game in some sort of football purgatory where our dreams are flushed down the drain!

  226. bmseattle

    good ol’ Diggs

  227. Pran

    Offense is dead in the water in 2nd half..horrendous.

    Defense sucks enough to let Rams win.

    This game is all on coaches..horrible play calling and execution everywhere

  228. Pack of K9s

    Great tackle Quandre, you almost had him like always

    • bmseattle

      He’s clearly afraid to tackle properly. He just throws his body in, hoping to knock the guy over, i guess.

  229. AlaskaHawk

    It must be nice to have your main QB go down and be able to pull Stafford out of your rear pocket!

  230. Tony

    This is the season. 5 game losing streak coming.

    • Big Mike

      And you beat both of us to it

  231. Kyle R

    They are going to get murdered in the next 5 games.

    • Big Mike

      You beat me to it

  232. Big Mike

    First of 5 straight losses coming up

    • AlaskaHawk

      OUCH. Why do I feel like Stafford is better than both our QBs??

  233. Pran

    Vaunted run D and pass D crumbles like a pack of cards

    • Rokas

      What do you expect? Offense can not get a first down, so defense has to be on the field all the time.

  234. Canadian Hawk

    3 yards in the 2nd half the first game.

    Did we beat it this time?

  235. Henry Taylor

    It’s games like these that explains my deep visceral hatred for the Rams. Even back in the Jeff Fischer days this shit just always happens against these guys.

    • Big Mike

      And the common thread is Pete Carroll

  236. Pran

    I think McVay will run the clock down to win it with a FG

  237. nfendall


  238. BrandoK

    Seattle can never win against the rams

    • Big Mike

      Pete Carroll

  239. IHeartTacoma

    Soft team, shitty coaching.

  240. Kyle R

    Next time I have food poisoning I need Shane Waldron. Nothing can stop and clog runs like him.

    • Palatypus

      That sounds like a KJR voicemail to me.

  241. Pran

    Father and Son strategizing on the sideline?

  242. BrandoK

    So at the start of the game seatlle had a 50/50 run to pass then it turned to 10/90 run to pass while they were ahead why

    • Kyle R

      And you won’t see one damn question about that in the press conference

      • Big Mike

        How good is Bobby Wagner?

        • Kyle R

          How critical was Adams support from the sidelines?

  243. Sea Mode

    Who knows, maybe they’ll shank the kick…?

    • Big Mike

      Greg the leg isn’t their kicker anymore

  244. BrandoK

    Waldron is a terrible OC

    • Pran

      Except one pre-scripted drive per game. Once defense adjusts he is a JAG

  245. AlaskaHawk

    At least it gives us a chance, and only will need a field goal.

  246. BrandoK

    is geno really playing

    • Pran

      Well.. Lock does not have the maturity to rise up and grab opportunity. He is a career backup..

      • Kyle R

        Both are different types of turd sandwiches….I just want the cheaper one and a rookie QB next year

  247. Palatypus

    Watch them run the ball.

  248. BrandoK

    Drew looks like he hates playing for seattle

  249. BrandoK


  250. AlaskaHawk

    I wasn’t expecting that short pass in the middle.

  251. Palatypus

    This whole officiating crew should be fired.

  252. BrandoK

    I dont pete is the right coach for seattle anymore

    • Big Mike

      Hasn’t been for sometime

      • BrandoK

        very true should’ve retired years ago

      • AlaskaHawk

        I agree that Pete isn’t the right coach anymore.

      • Kyle R

        At this point I so mad at his hubris and stubbornness I don’t even want a statue for his ass outside the stadium anymore.

  253. AlaskaHawk

    Shades of the last game where Geno and Metcalf finally connect.

  254. seaspunj

    there’s the ball game

    i hope now they lose out for a better draft pick

    • bmseattle

      yeah, especially that 2nd rounder!

    • MarkinSeattle

      Draft pick and so they don’t blow a huge amount of money on Geno… but I am sure they will keep him around at an extreme salary. They have kept Diggs and Adams around despite poor contributions.

    • Pran

      Praying to lose all the games here on this season.

      Until Pete and his unfit coaching staff is fired..cant hope for better times

  255. AlaskaHawk

    OMG that hurts! So close!

  256. Big Mike

    Is 10 wins 5 losses against Pete Carroll
    And 2 of those wins were against terrible backup quarterbacks
    As was mentioned earlier this week he owns Pete lock stock and barrel

  257. Kyle R

    Fuck you Pete, Shane and Clint!

  258. Tony

    Nosedive this season.

  259. BrandoK

    Atleast we know both lock and geno suck and pete will never trust lock even with an injured geno

    We better draft a QB now

  260. MaxInVan

    Fire Shane Waldron to the fucking moon. Every loss this season outside of the Baltimore game can be attributed to him. Not entire blame but the lions share of it

  261. Sea Mode

    Wow. The one thing I thought we had going for us…

  262. dragonhawk

    Even if the field goal was good, this team is gonna get decimated over the course of the next five games, especially against the 49ers…

    • Big Mike

      Agree I’m not putting this on Myers at all

      • dragonhawk

        Would have been the worst 7-3 team in nfl history…

    • Sea Mode

      Yup. Better to expose the warts now instead of covering over them with a lucky win.

  263. icb12

    If you miss a FG on 3rd down it turns the ball over?

    You don’t get a 4th down to try again?

    • Tony

      No, it’s like punting on 3rd down.

    • Lord Snow

      Teams go for it on 3rd down in case there’s a mishandled snap and that pushes the field goal back slightly. But if you miss the field goal it’s a turnover on Downs

  264. pdway

    i mean – WTF are they thinking w that run play after the DK catch? 33 secs left when DK caught it – spike it and you have 25 secs left and can run any pass play you want to get 5 yards. so f-ing dumb

    • Sea Mode

      Agree. Not sure why they didn’t just run up and spike it.

    • Pran

      Well smartness is not our forte. Pete is given this opportunity to show his smarts due to a stupid play call on the other end by McVay preserving some time

  265. icb12

    I just read the rules. That’s dumb. I always assumed you would get another try.

    Why do it then? Throw a pass to the sideline, and try to get closer. 10 seconds is enough to throw and then kick with 2 or 3 seconds.

    That was really really bad football by the Seahawks. The whole thing.
    The shirt pass in the middle. The run instead of spike. The whole operation was terrible.

  266. AlaskaHawk

    Geno should have known better than to throw a short one in the middle to Charbonnet. That’s 20 seconds off the clock, minimum.

    I can’t shake the feeling that Stafford is better than both our quarterbacks. Too bad he is getting up there in age.
