Curtis Allen’s week nine watchpoints (vs Cardinals)

This is a guest article by Curtis Allen. After the game today tune into the instant reaction live stream which will be available on here and on our YouTube channel

It is fascinating how quickly things can change in the NFL.

Three weeks ago, the Cardinals came into Seattle with both teams at 2-3 and coming off frustrating losses the week before.  Neither team had a claim to a good, solid schedule of play.  Mistakes, disorganization and chaos ruled their games.

If you recall, I found it difficult to put a good Watch Points post together because there was so much randomness to both teams’ play.

The Seahawks have evened out their performance greatly.  After beating Arizona handily, they went to Los Angeles and proved the Arizona win was not a fluke.  They then took another big step forward in beating the Giants.  The defense has come alive and is finally complementing the offense.

How about the Cardinals?

After losing to the Seahawks, Arizona split their next two games.

DeAndre Hopkins is back with a vengeance.  In two games he has 22 catches on 27 targets for 262 yards and a touchdown.  He seems intent on making up for lost time and the offense looks vastly different with him in the game.

The defense has gone the other way.  In their last two games they have given up an average of 34 points and 438 yards, after an effective five game stretch allowing an average of only 19 points and 307 yards.  This has put a lot of pressure on the offense to carry the team and that has provided mixed results.

They hosted New Orleans and won by eight points on the strength of the Saints committing three turnovers.

They then went to Minnesota and flipped the scenario, losing by eight points after turning the ball over three times themselves.

The Cardinals are at a crossroads.  They stand at 3-5 and their next three games are against division opponents.  

It is not hyperbole to say their season is already on the line.  If the Seahawks beat them on Sunday, they fall to three and a half games behind in the race for the division title.  The pressure to just keep their heads above water the next two weeks against the Rams and Niners would ratchet up to high levels.  They have not responded well to adversity this year.  Losing to Seattle Sunday could lead to a bad downward spiral and an ugly season.

Pete Carroll is 7-5 in his Seahawks tenure in the second game of the season against Arizona, including a 2-1 mark against Kliff Kingsbury.

The team could really use the momentum of sweeping a division rival to propel them to Germany next week and into their bye week.  How can they make that happen?

Control the Game Script with the Offense

This is a recycled point from Week Six but the divide has grown even more in Seattle’s favor:

-The Seahawks are the #1 offense in the NFL in First Quarter scoring, while the Cardinals are the #32 defense in the NFL in the same category

-The Cardinals are the #32 offense in the NFL in First Quarter scoring while Seahawks are #12 on defense

There is a clear advantage there and the Seahawks need to take advantage of it.  There is no excuse to not come racing out of the gate while the Cardinals are still trying to lace up their cleats.

Division games are always hard-fought and the team that can build a lead holds a decisive advantage.

How important is controlling the game?  Let’s illustrate it by looking at the Cardinals’ win over the Saints two weeks ago.  

Arizona scored a touchdown and two-point conversion to pull even with the Saints at 14-14 with only 2:28 to go in the half.  135 seconds later, the Cardinals had a 28-14 lead thanks to Andy Dalton throwing two pick-sixes.

The Saints went from up 14-6 to down 28-14 in the time in between heartbeats.  They mercifully kneeled to burn the last 46 seconds off the clock and went into the locker room with their heads spinning.

The second half featured Andy Dalton passing heavily, desperately trying to get the Saints back into the game.  They only called five runs in the second half.  A team with Alvin Kamara, Taysom Hill and Mark Ingram only called five runs!  The Cardinals called off their blitzing dogs and flooded coverage in the backfield.  The Saints offense couldn’t get any chunk plays.  Nor could the defense get pressure on Kyler Murray to get him off the field.  Ballgame.

That game obviously unraveled quickly on two very bad plays.  Between Geno Smith’s accuracy and the sheer volume of probability, the chances are that will not happen to the Seahawks.

However, it does illustrate how getting a lead and making your opponent one-dimensional can be a tremendous weapon.

How can the Hawks do it?  

Explosive plays have always been a feature of their attack against Arizona.  The Cardinals have a strange propensity for giving them up.  Seattle’s offense had eight explosives in Week Six. As I have mentioned before, they actually have one more unofficial explosive from that game, in the form of Ken Walker’s 11-yard touchdown run.  Only the goal line prevented him from getting that extra yard to make it nine.

The Saints only managed two explosive plays against this defense and that came as we discussed above.  Having the game in hand, the Cardinals chose to drop in coverage and keep the game in front of them.  They only blitzed the Saints ten times in 49 dropbacks.

The Vikings, with a more even performance, returned the Cardinal defense to their normal schedule, with eight explosive plays on offense, including four explosive runs from Dalvin Cook.  This bodes well for Ken Walker, Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf and the tight ends.

The key to getting those explosive plays again for the Seahawks will be to play the game they came to play.  

That means minimizing a weakness the Seahawks have had — being susceptible to the Cardinals’ exotic blitzing schemes.  Geno Smith was sacked a season-high five times by the Cardinals in Week Six.  No other team has even come close to getting that many against this reformed offensive line.

All five of those sacks came on third downs, with these yardages to go:  6, 13, 7, 12, 13.  They were obvious passing situations and the Cardinals took advantage.  All told, Arizona sacked Smith on five of their seven third and longs.  That is 71% – an extremely high rate of success.

How high?  On the season, the Seahawks only allow sacks in those situations on about 20% of their third and longs.  They need improvement to keep that number down to their season average in this game.  The good news is, they have already demonstrated it.

A positive development came from last week’s game against the Giants.  As we discussed last week, Wink Martindale is also an advocate of heavy, creative blitzing.  They blitzed 17 times but the Seahawks allowed only three sacks.  One of them was on a second down that they shook off and went on to score a touchdown.  The other two?  They both occurred on a single other drive and the Seahawks punted.  Only one of the Giants’ sacks was on a third and long play out of six such plays overall.  A drastic improvement.

The offensive line the Cardinals will face is the same group of guys but a more confident, accomplished line than the one that surrendered five key sacks in Week Six.

If the offense can keep up their early-game success, they can put a ton of pressure on the Cardinals offense and this will help the defense tremendously…

Get After Kyler Murray

The Seahawks’ pass rush really righted their ship in Week Six.  They sacked Murray six times.  That game was a real breakthrough.

What makes it even better?  The sacks came in a wide variety of ways.  Uchenna Nwosu got a coverage sack, Ryan Neal got one on a safety blitz, Darrell Taylor had a strip sack, Quentin Jefferson got one on a fourth down and Poona Ford and Shelby Harris beat their men inside.

What makes it even better than that?  The Seahawks accomplished their six sacks on only two – count ‘em, two! – blitzes.  More than that, they also recorded thirteen pressures, including ‘just missed’ sacks that Bruce Irvin should have had.  The Valhalla of getting a real pass rush with only your front four was reached.

Playing an opponent for a second time, it can be a struggle to replicate the success of that first game in specific areas.  What makes us think the Seahawks’ defense can regularly get pressure on Murray again Sunday?

First off, the Cardinal game was not a one-time thing.  The following week against the Chargers, they sacked Justin Herbert three times and recorded nine pressures on only seven blitzes.  The Giants game?  They sacked Daniel Jones five times and recorded eleven pressures on only three blitzes.

One game can be a fluke.  Two games can be brushed off with weak opponents.  Three games in a row?  That is a pattern.  And it is an excellent one at that.

Secondly, the Arizona offensive line is currently a disaster zone.  Guard Justin Pugh is out for the season.  Top center Rodney Hudson has already been ruled out for Sunday by Kliff Kingsbury.  Left Tackle D.J. Humphries was inactive against Minnesota with a bad back and has been rested in practice this week.  Even if he plays Sunday, that may be an opportunity for Nwosu and Irvin to be very disruptive on the blind side.

How have the backup Cardinal linemen been doing?  We can encapsulate their recent performance in one clip from Week Six.

Click the link and watch Bryan Mone on backup Center Sean Harlow, who so far this season is rated in the 40’s by PFF.

Minnesota had a field day last week with Murray.  They sacked him four times and recorded nine pressures on only three blitzes.  The offensive line struggled to keep up and the Cardinals were forced to become one-dimensional, running the ball with their backs a grand total of three times for five yards in the second half of the game.  

Murray also narrowed his vision even further, targeting Hopkins nine times in the second half.  About half of Hopkins’ yards came in garbage time, as the Vikings were defending a deep strike and readily allowing underneath throws.

When Murray was not getting sacked or pressured, he was running for his life and making bad throws into a seven-man backfield.  An interception he threw in the second half turned into a Vikings touchdown.  A muffed punt by the Cardinals was turned into another Viking touchdown and put their defense just too far behind the eight-ball.  Game over.

Kyler Murray and the offense this year have been very uneven.  Murray has been spotted yelling at his head coach on one play and on the next, throwing for a brilliant touchdown.  They are disjointed, missing key players and playing like wounded animals.  Lethal yet inconsistent.  Explosive yet erratic.  

If the offense does their job to get a handle on the scoreboard early, you can expect that kind of disparity to grow further.  The defense will be able to pin their ears back and get after Murray while keeping defenders in the middle of the field.

That is, if they keep one of the NFL’s top receivers from taking the game over…

Defend DeAndre Hopkins

Incredibly, between injury and suspension, the Seahawks have only faced Hopkins as a Cardinal in two of the five available games since he came to Arizona.

His numbers in those games were extremely productive — 15 catches on 20 targets for 10 first downs and a touchdown.

This year he has been targeted 27 times in two games — by far the most of any Cardinal player in that stretch.  As I wrote above, when Murray felt threatened and needed to get the offense moving, Hopkins was his go-to target.

A third game with the pairing this year will be very interesting to see how they play together.  The rust (if there ever was any) is off and they will be able to really gameplan the offense in a way they could not in Week Six.

Where will Hopkins line up?  Against the Saints, they split him almost evenly between the left side and the right.  They changed their tactic against Minnesota, lining him up only on the left side all game.  Or put another way, on the side opposite Patrick Peterson.  Hopkins burned Chandon Sullivan, Harrison Smith and Cameron Dantzler all equally.

It is likely fair to say that several defenders therefore will get the pleasure of drawing one the NFL’s toughest assignments.  

One thing that has given Kliff Kingsbury’s coaching ability some positive shine is his ability to move Hopkins around and get favorable matchups.  This year, he has split Hopkins out wide and then had him motion towards the quarterback and when the ball is snapped, he is ‘stacked’ behind the slot wide receiver or tight end.  The defender must make a quick decision to pass off his primary receiver or pick up Hopkins.  That half second of decision makes the corner turn his back to Kyler Murray and opens up all kinds of cuts and back-shoulder throws.

When teams line up off the line of scrimmage and give Hopkins a cushion, Murray and Hopkins simply take the free six or seven yards with a quick slant throw.

Tariq Woolen, Coby Bryant and Mike Jackson will get a real workout in this area on Sunday.  While the rookies have been tested time and again and answered the bell, this is a supreme challenge to keep a player under wraps.  Particularly one who has come out of the gate so terribly hot.  This is the matchup to watch Sunday.

But again, everyone will have a part in defending Hopkins.  These plays I described for Hopkins do not make Murray process very much.  If the pass rush can do their job, Murray will not get as many chances to make easy throws and that can put a lot of strain on his ability to effectively move the ball down the field.


  1. Eduardo Ballori

    If I only read one opponent summary before a game its this one man. There is depth and layered analysis not found in the Seattle Times or anywhere else. Last week’s insight on how the Hawks played the Giants similar to the Cardinals was spot on(I think even Shelby Harris referenced it) And again here, you could’ve copy and pasted the first Cardinals game summary, but you also understand(like Carrol said in his Kiro interview) that AZ will adapt game to game. I think they will play conservatively first half and pivot off of what they see from AZ.

    It be interesting how the Hawks playing more nickel and dime fare with the TE and routes down the middle. It seems DBs have been more on their spots on zones with those particular routes.

    I think, AZ’s beat up offensive line will allow for our continued interior pressure and lead to good sack numbers in this one. The shift away from 2-gap principles for Harris/Poona/Q has been key. Hopefully we can keep Murray in the pocket while hunting for them.

    I am getting the popcorn ready for the Woolen Hopkins matchup on the left side!

    Should be a good one. Keep up the good work.


    • Rob Staton

      Cha’s Seahawks gameday previews are the best on the internet

      • Trevor

        Agree completely. Great stuff!

        • Glasto Hawk UK

          💯 For me Cha’s preview adds such insight in what to watch for in the game to make it a better experience.

      • Canadian Hawk

        And the work you do on the Seahawks, analyzing college recruits and determining who would be the best fit for our football club is the best on the internet.

        Thanks to both of you for all the time/effort you put in.

        • Rob Staton

          Thank you 👍🏻

          Wrote up a massive scouting notes piece for tomorrow earlier. Lots of info.

      • Mick

        For me as an European with little previous knowledge of football, this is a great place to get an education on the topic. Cha’s previews and Rob’s articles are best you can find.

      • Big Mike

        100% the best, Rob’s right.

        Thanks cha.

    • UkAlex6674

      Yep 100% agree with all of the above

    • Kyle R

      Here here! I always make sure to read Cha’s preview before every game even if I can’t watch the whole game live.

    • cha

      Thanks everyone. I am cherishing every comment.

  2. Eduardo

    No doubt. When you are referencing the rating for 1st quarter scoring vs 1st quarter defense and then evidencing it with a Saints?Vikings v. AZ game, you are really earning your props.

    Budda possibly out is also something to watch. They are a different team with him on the field and I suspect their propensity to blitz should factor in with him in street gear.

    Keep up the good work fellas.

    Go Hawks.

  3. TomLPDX

    Great write-up Curtis. I hope we have a decisive win today but worry about the injury gremlin that lives in AZ. I see that Conner is expected to play today as well.

  4. Palatypus

    Steve Mariucci just predicted that Kyler Murray will break Kurt Warner’s week 9 Cardinal record for touchdown passes and throw 6 today.

    My prediction? K9 will break Thomas Rawls Seahawks rookie rushing record of 209 yards.

    And he will look like Curt Warner doing it.

    • Big Mike

      Wow, it’d be nice if “Mooch” would reveal what strain he’s smoking cuz it’s better than anything I’ve indulged in.

  5. Seahawkwalt

    Great writeup..
    charbonnet is a special runner. He very often makes the first person miss

  6. Trevor

    Really worried about two things this week. First is over confidence. Really hope the team is not reading the press clippings of how great they are and that they stay focused / hungry.

    Second is injuries. Seems like whenever the Hawks play in Arizona bad things happen on the injury front.

    If the Hawks stay focussed and healthy they should win this game.

  7. Blitzy the Clown

    Wasn’t the previous game vs Arizona when they first switched up the DL alignments?

    And now they’ve had several weeks to work that new scheme. I like the outlook for our pass rush in this game. I think Murray’s gonna be harried a lot today, resulting in visible frustration and hopefully some mistakes.

    I think Seattle get 1-2 INT today.

    Btw that’s how you mitigate DHop too — you force the issue with Murray, move him off his spot (preferably up into the pocket or to his left) and don’t give them time to implement their plays.

    James Conner is back, but I wonder how ready he is with ribs that are still sore and no game time in the last few weeks.

  8. Romeo A57

    I am trying to put a reason as to why SDB is a much better site for Seahawks fans than anywhere else. Is it Rob, Curtis, Robbie and Alex analysis or is it the in-depth review of draft eligible college players.

    I am getting severe nausea from Field Goals and KIRO. They are more concerned about appeasing the fans by demanding that the Seahawks get more respect. Salk is saying that Seattle should win most of the NFL awards like MVP., Rookies of the year,Coach and GM of the year. Let’s ignore the fact that Seattle is already 3.5 games behind Philadelphia as the best team in the NFL.

    SDB is about how do the Seahawks improve to become an actual Superbowl contender. The 2022 Seahawks have proven to be a fun surprising team and what needs to happen to get us there?


    • Rob Staton

      I think the best thing about this place is we stick to the football

      We don’t dabble in drama or spend our entire time analysing what other websites are doing

      Best Seahawks community online for sure IMO

      • TomLPDX

        Well, there are those occasional comments about GoT and HoD

        • Rob Staton

          That is a very important discussion 😂

    • Peter


      OROY…..Walker and Lucas? Possible

      Coach…still think it’s Daboll and the fighting Siriani’s to lose.


      MVP….?….if allen keeps being allen and hurts gets the team to something like 14-3 or better surely it’d have to be those two. Now if Seattle gets to about 13 wins? All bets are off. If they (and Geno,) essentially double where they are at now: 10 wins. 4000 yards. 26 tds. 6 picks. Though an awesome year for Geno that doesn’t jump out as MVP numbers.

      Comeback player of the year….after watching a short Eisen clip about perseverance this one actually seems possible.

    • cha

      For me it’s about consistently calling good things good and making sure challenges are illuminated with equal vigor.

      That does not happen in other areas.

      • Rob Staton


    • Big Mike

      I’ll give an example:
      I’d guess any number of those sites/people are still unwilling to come out and fully admit that the Adams trade was shit and that it would be best if he was just cut. On this site, it’s been stated correctly for 2 years now he should be gone. Meanwhile, I’m listening to Michael Lombardi with Cowherd last week and mentions Ryan Neal and that his play has been good. Then he says “he’s the player that replaced Jamal Adams and he’s a better player than Adams”, very matter of fact.
      There’s no blue and green glasses being worn by Rob, cha, Robbie, Adam and plenty of the posters. Likewise, if most of the people here are wrong about something like say Geno, they say so and they’re happy because it benefits the Seahawks and after all, we all want the team to win.

      • Rob Staton


      • TomLPDX


      • Romeo A57

        I am very happy to have been so wrong about Geno this year and the 2022 Draft picks are looking to exceed my optimistic expectations. I am actually looking forward to the 2 Rams games, and I wouldn’t have said that 2 months ago.

        Me bashing other Seahawks sites to say that this site is superior, should be irrelevant and is petty.

  9. TomLPDX

    While we are waiting for the Hawks to play later today, I keep hoping that Detroit kicks GB’s butt!

    • Big Mike

      3 picks, zero points scored halfway through the 3rd against the Lions’ D
      Bwa ha ha

      • TomLPDX

        How about that Hutchison interception! Pretty cool!!!

    • Romeo A57

      It is not nice to laugh at Arod’s misfortune even though he is thoroughly unlikable.


      • TomLPDX

        I’m not laughing at ARod (just chuckling) and rooting for Dan Campbell and the Lions to take the win.

        • Romeo A57

          I am definitely laughing now with Detroit up 9 now. My supervisor is a big Packers fan and is none too pleased right now.

          • TomLPDX

            I hope they hang on and don’t blow it

      • Big Mike

        I am laughing at Rodgers, but Tom’s a nicer person than me so…

        • Ashish

          I’m screaming on everyone redzone interception. R E L A X…

        • Big Mike

          The only bummer is that after all the years of them being good and whipping up.on us in GB, they finally suck and we don’t get to play them.

          • Peter

            You can’t take away my memories of us gifting them a million picks in a playoff game and them crying about how “they beat our butts,”….and yet that’s not what the box score said when the game was over.

        • Peter

          I’m laughing. Dudes a goofs through and through.

  10. bmseattle

    Taylor inactive?
    Is this the hip injury?
    I remember how slow and staggering he looked, while trying to return the fumble a couple of weeks back.
    Seems like this could potentially be an issue that isn’t improving.

  11. Blitzy the Clown

    Bills at Jets is enormously entertaining. Jets DEs Jermaine Johnson and Micheal Clemons are ballers.

    Tied at 17 with 2 minutes left in the game. Jets are driving from the doorstep of the red zone.

  12. pdway

    Myers has been money this year

  13. Blitzy the Clown


    So close to the sack

    • Big Mike

      Gonna cost us points too

  14. Rob Staton

    We need a game wrecker up front

    • Big Mike

      We need to quit wasting TOs too, be it bad challenges or this or whatever

      • Rob Staton

        We just wasted a TO to concede a TD

        and during the timeout they cooked up Mafe covering Nuk

  15. ShowMeYourHawk

    Opening drive defense is looking like it did against Atlanta. Dreadful.

  16. bmseattle

    Mafe on Hopkins, huh?

  17. Rob Staton

    I see the defense has gone back into hot knife through butter mode

  18. Blitzy the Clown


  19. AlaskaHawk

    I missed the early discussion about what is best about this site. I do look at field gulls after games, but that is my only other real comparison.

    The thing I like best is that Rob deletes the @hole conversations before I read them.
    Second best thing, Rob and Curtis analysis.
    Third best thing, a lot of home experts that chime in and add to the discussion.

  20. Big Mike

    All because of a sack that should have happened. Whatever our scheme is you simply cannot cover Hopkins with a linebacker. End of discussion, change your scheme if this is the case

  21. Henry Taylor

    So much for early scoreboard pressure.

    • Big Mike

      And if we get the sack, they punt cuz it’s 3rd down and we have a chance at a 10-0 lead. There’s a shot at said pressure.

  22. Romeo A57

    Cardinals are a different team with Hopkins. Without a game wrecker in Murray’s face today, the redbirds might put up a lot of points

  23. Rob Staton

    This game already has ‘one of those days’ vibes

    • Pran

      Celebrated a little too much last week.. this is a trap game

    • bmseattle

      Feels like we are due for a clunker.
      We aren’t good enough to just run away with the division.
      The Cardinals are a tough matchup for us, as well. For some reason, we can’t block them.

    • Big Mike


    • Henry Taylor

      Was just about to say, hopefully they wake up.

  24. ShowMeYourHawk

    Nice block, rookie. Jeez…..

  25. Blitzy the Clown

    Nice coverage on ST at least

  26. STTBM

    Seattle getting out coached yet again…sigh…

  27. Mick

    Not the best start, the O looks slow.

    • Big Mike

      So does the defensive coaching re: trying to cover their #1 weapon with Mafe.

  28. ShowMeYourHawk

    Gonna say it now. This is a must win game if we have any hope of winning the division. I’m fairly certain we drop next week in Munich just because it seems like the time shift and impending bye will be in everyone’s mind.

    Hurtt had better scheme a LOT better than he did on the first drive or we’re Wild Card, at best.

  29. TomLPDX

    Hang on guys, it’s gonna be a rough ride. But I think we pull it out.

    • TomLPDX

      And there ya go. Come on Seattle.

  30. Blitzy the Clown

    Saved by their own mistake

    Mayhap the football gods smile upon us yet

    • Henry Taylor

      A prototype 6’3 QB catches that snap…

  31. STTBM

    Dang, Seattle can’t even field a pint appropriately…

  32. Mick

    Why not catch the damn ball at 30 and let it roll for 10 more yards?

  33. Rob Staton

    Is Deejay Dallas allergic to a fair catch?

  34. Blitzy the Clown

    Geno ice

    • TomLPDX

      That was a nice pass to Fant under extreme pressure. Geno is amazing.

      • Big Mike

        Helluva a play and the decision to run with no one open was excellent as well.

    • Mick

      Yes Geno’s play is quite impressive, so calm.

  35. Sea Mode

    I think we need some quick WR screens/sweeps to take advantage of them blitzing so much.

    • Rob Staton

      Times like this I wish we had a screen game

      • Big Mike


    • AlaskaHawk

      They have shown a few run counters in the past. I think the remedy is a double dose of Walker.

  36. Blitzy the Clown

    Lil razzle dazzle for ya

  37. cha

    I like that double-pass play. The Cards have been uber-aggressive so far on defense. Use it against them and make them think twice.

  38. ShowMeYourHawk

    Keep smashing, K9! Need the D sucking wind…

  39. Blitzy the Clown

    Who let the dog out!

  40. cha

    There’s one explosive for K9

  41. TomLPDX

    YES! DK!

  42. Blitzy the Clown

    That was a thing of beauty DK

  43. ShowMeYourHawk

    I’m choosing to ignore the Metcalf pushoff. Nice drive!

  44. Big Mike

    Great footwork DK!

  45. Mick

    Great reaction DK after that should-have-been INT.

  46. AlaskaHawk

    That was a nice touchdown!!! Feeling like the Seahawks are a little more in control now.

  47. Blitzy the Clown

    Big TD for Seattle. Arizona are playing like they want the win. Seahawks will have to earn the victory if it’s to be theirs today

    • TomLPDX

      I think the Cards are gonna burn out and we are going to blister them

  48. Kyle R

    That extra point reminded me I should fear all kicks in this stadium as well as injuries

    • Big Mike

      Well said, sadly.

  49. Romeo A57

    Nice catch by DK. Lucky XP by Meyers. A ton of poise and pocket presense by Geno on that drive. Let’s go Seahawks!

  50. TomLPDX

    Oh, just wanted to say. Detroit beat GB!!!! Yay!!!! Now, back to our regularly schedule program…

  51. Blitzy the Clown

    OMG did Barton just make a play

  52. Blitzy the Clown

    There it is!

    That’s INT #1

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Oh ffs

  53. Kyle R

    Damnit that could have been game changing

    • Mick

      Come on the rook needed it.

    • TomLPDX

      Redeem yourself Diggs.

  54. Blitzy the Clown

    What a liability Diggs has become

  55. Kyle R

    Awesome blow up there by Woolen

  56. Big Mike

    Good job Diggs. That’s what we get for what we’re paying you. You just cost your team a shot at another TD.

    • bmseattle

      so pointless, too.
      what was he doing/thinking?

  57. KD

    Bloody hell Diggs!

    Barton chasing ghosts out there lol

      Barton has made contact with ball carriers, a big step.

    • bmseattle

      His awareness is comically bad.

  59. ShowMeYourHawk

    Gotta get off the field, D!

  60. Mick

    Boy the Cards are good at shooting themselves in the foot. And again that shows what a hit Lucas and Cross are.

  61. Blitzy the Clown

    Hey TomLPDX you may be right about Arizona imploding

    • Big Mike

      Looking that way

    • TomLPDX

      Fingers crossed

  62. bmseattle

    An actual punt return?

  63. bmseattle


  64. Big Mike

    Now take advantage of the field position Hawks

  65. cha

    The Cardinals are a powder keg.

    Seahawks need to light the match.

    • Big Mike


  66. Kyle R

    Thank God for Arizona helping give moment back after that stupid penalty by Diggs

    • Hawkster

      Diggs was all eyes on QB, to the point that even after the play he seemed unaware of the collision.

  67. STTBM

    Murray really chewing out Hopkins after that third down…

  68. DriveByPoster

    The cardinals are doing a good job of marching themselves back toward their goal line. At this rate they will be starting their drive out in the car park.

  69. Trevor

    Those two rookie CB are already really good and difference makers.

  70. Kyle R

    Murray is like “I’m giving up Call of Duty time over this shit!”

  71. Blitzy the Clown

    That was ugly

    • Rob Staton

      Awful play calling on 3rd and 4th down

      Too tricky

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Haynes blew his assignment. Just absolutely whiffed

    • Kyle R

      Haynes with the big wiff there to blow the play up.

  72. Mick

    What in the world is this play call???

  73. cha

    So go for it on 4th and 3 and call the exact same play as you did last week?

    You don’t think Arizona would have seen the tape and be ready for that?

    • Big Mike


  74. ShowMeYourHawk

    Waldron needs to chill with these low percentage success play designs. Completely shat the bed on 3rd and 4th down.

  75. Henry Taylor

    Hate the sweep to Homer on 3rd down.

  76. STTBM

    Damn, that was a stupid play call! Back to the well once too often–they just ran that play last week! Way too soon to try it again! They need to let Geno naked bootleg that one!

  77. Big Mike

    If your QB is making nearly all great decisions, shouldn’t you give him the chance to pick up 3rd and 4th and 3?

  78. Sea Mode

    Haynes with the Jamal Adams’ patented arms extended after giving up the bad play.

    • Hawkcrazy

      Definitely this. Just standing around watching.

  79. mantis

    i can’t believe how some people criticize every little missed play while the team is playing way above everyone’s expectations

    • Big Mike

      2 missed plays in a row and both on the play caller, not the players.

    • bmseattle

      Well… now you can believe it!

    • Big Mike

      And I might add, a huge missed opportunity considering we got the ball uin their territory.

    • Rob Staton

      It’s just what people do

      When things go well you watch the replay and/or sit back and smile

      When something goes wrong you want to shout about it


    • Blitzy the Clown

      In fairness, we also praise a lot of little things

      Either way, it comes from a place of love

      • TomLPDX

        Well said, Blitzy. We’re fans of the Seahawks, first and foremost.

  80. Scot04

    Absolutely brutal 3rd & 4th down calls

  81. ShowMeYourHawk

    On a cold day, I like my blanket Woolen!

    • Big Mike

      That works on 2 levels…… in “blanket” coverage. Good one man

  82. TomLPDX


  83. Kyle R

    Woolen with the big play!

  84. Canadian Hawk


    Man is he good

  85. bmseattle


  86. pdway

    man, what a gem Woolen is

  87. Blitzy the Clown

    Fantastic coverage by Woolen

  88. Mick

    Woolen is killing it.

  89. Big Mike

    Next time he’ll undercut that and pick it

    • Sea Mode

      He was kicking himself cause he had a good enough jump on it to get two hands up.

      • Big Mike

        I thought so too. We both read him the same way

  90. KD

    Brilliant play by Woolen there. That a stud

  91. Hawkster

    Woolen v Hopkins. Nice play

  92. Trevor

    If Woolen can hold up against Hopkins today it will be another great sign.

  93. Rob Staton

    Offense feels very conservative today

    • DarrellDownUnder

      No doubt. Take a shot downfield already.

    • TomLPDX

      Really? There have been a few trick plays today…that doesn’t say conservative to me.

  94. pdway

    as we are struggling to get guys open down the field – strikes me that we are missing Goodwin a little. Wish Eskridge was better.

  95. Blitzy the Clown

    Dammit Tyler! Went down too early

  96. ShowMeYourHawk

    Tyler denying himself YAC every week is driving me crazy.

  97. Hawks4life

    I’m so tired of Lockett giving himself up

    • TomLPDX

      Me too. Fight for yards Tyler.

  98. Kyle R

    Goddamn Locket quit giving yourself up constantly and know where you are!! You owe us a big play now

  99. bmseattle

    Fighting for a few extra yards in not Lockett’s strength, unfortunately.

  100. Blitzy the Clown

    What a play by Dareke!

  101. Palatypus

    Well that was a stressful four hours at work.

    What did I miss?

    • bmseattle

      Phil Haynes missed a block.

    • Big Mike

      Diggs is grossly overpaid for the performance he gives the team

    • Sea Mode

      Shaky start on defense, but then got better. Offense started ok, but then has gotten in its own way.

    • Big Mike

      Austin Blythe has NOT been blown up this week so far

    • Big Mike

      Tariq Woolen is the truth

  102. Blitzy the Clown

    Alright defense. Let’s turn up the heat to close out the half!

    • Blitzy the Clown


  103. STTBM

    Can’t remember the last time Seattle pinned a team deep and didn’t immediately let them off the hook…

  104. Blitzy the Clown

    Mike Jackson went through Nuk to make that play

    • Mick

      Great stop by him there.

  105. ShowMeYourHawk

    C’mon, D. Get of the field and give the O a chance….

  106. ShowMeYourHawk

    Are you f*cking kidding me?

  107. Big Mike

    Horrific defense

    • Mick

      This wasn’t a snap to have Onujiogu playing.

  108. Blitzy the Clown

    Jeezus Jordyn that was a hit

  109. AlaskaHawk

    Murray has twice as much yardage scrambling as he does passing.

  110. Sea Mode


  111. ShowMeYourHawk

    From ugly to FANTASTIC in four seconds!

  112. Rob Staton

    Ryan Neal!!!!

    • Blitzy the Clown

      It was! Just nudged it what a play!

  113. Blitzy the Clown

    Hahahahaha I love it!

  114. AlaskaHawk

    Whoo Hoo! Murray trying too hard and now the seahawks defense comes through.

  115. Kyle R

    Ryan Neal best safety on the team and it isn’t even close

  116. Mick

    Awesome job, come on!

  117. cha

    Extend Neal now.

    Like, right now. At halftime.

    • Big Mike

      PLEASE and for the love of GOD just cut the peacock post June 1. PLEASE Pete!

    • bmseattle

      Seems like guys play better *before* they are extended.

  118. Big Mike

    Terrible defensive series saved by Murray’s bad play after a bad play drop on the previous play

  119. Robbie

    Thank you Ryan Neal from saving me from having to buy a new TV.

    • Big Mike

      Robbie, as a lifelong Seahawks fan you should know better than to have any heavy objects around while watching a Hawks gam

  120. Sea Mode

    We’ve GOT to get Murray sacked a few times in the 2nd half.

  121. STTBM

    Seattle playing scared on offense, sitting on their hands. Enough trickery, let ’em play!

    • Rob Staton

      Can only imagine they want to avoid chaos because that’s what Arizona’s D with all the blitzing specialises in

      But someone is going to need to make some plays eventually

      • STTBM

        Yes, Seattle doesn’t trust their line vs AZ, but the tricky stuff is ridiculous–and it isn’t working. You got to at least try to get the ball to Lockett and Metcalf down field. They need to give those guys a chance to make a play. Eskridge, Parkinson, and Fant aren’t going to win the game for us.

  122. ShowMeYourHawk

    For a makeshift O-Line they’ve got in, Murray’s uni is WAY TOO clean. Owosu isn’t nearly enough to get pressure.

    • Rob Staton

      Our pass rush still needs more 100%

    • cha

      Murray had all day on that crosser from his own end zone to Moore.

    • STTBM

      Because they are rushing Bruce Irvin, who is 50years old and runs a 9.0 second 40…he’s not running past anyone…

  123. KennyBadger

    Ryan F Neal.

    Good to be ahead at half!

  124. Rob Staton

    Weird first half

    • Big Mike

      I hate playing this team and have for a long time.

      • TomLPDX

        You and me. I hate the Cards.

    • Mick

      We must do better, totally winnable game.

  125. Trevor

    Why do almost all Seahawks / Cardinals games seem like something out of Bizaro world?

    • Big Mike

      Cuz they are. It’s why I hate playing this team.

      • TomLPDX

        Ha Ha! My thought exactly. Plus the injury gremlin living under the turf. I hate playing the Cards.

  126. Blitzy the Clown

    The DL isn’t playing badly. Cards have 77 yards rushing and Murray’s responsible for 53 of them, sowe’re shutting down the run. So much for Conner’s return.

    But the pass rush just isn’t cutting it. We can’t generate any inside pressure, so the DTs are lining up in the B and C gaps which may help contain Murray laterally, but it concedes too much inside and Murray has too much time.

  127. Sea Mode

    LOL Cards fans take on Murray’s terrible body language… 😂

    Anyways, let’s just play solid fundamental football, get the win, and get out of there without any injuries.

  128. Big Mike

    These announcers are better than what we’ve had the last couple of weeks especially moose Johnston. However when the play by play guy says 4 man rush and the seahawks are clearly blitzing an extra guy you feel like saying “are you watching the game?”

  129. Blitzy the Clown

    Hey guys can we please not tease the jinxster djinns in this stadium?

  130. Rob Staton

    Bloody hell Geno make a decision

    • Rob Staton


      • STTBM

        So much for the ridiculous MVP chatter. Geno is still Geno, even if he’s exceeded expectations.

        Not much blocking either. Everyone got penetration, even the DTs on that last couple plays…

  131. Blitzy the Clown

    Oh ffs that’s just anemic

  132. Rob Staton

    Look it’s 2nd and 2 just run Ken Walker he has nine carries

    • Big Mike

      Agree. I liked throwing on 1st down but yeah 2nd and 2, just give the ball to your stud running back get a first down to get things moving.

  133. Henry Taylor

    Something about both these teams defenses is the kryptonite for the opposing offense. Neither unit can do much of anything today.

  134. Mick

    The second sack is on Haynes. We have a hole at RG. But Geno should get rid of it faster.

  135. Palatypus

    That guy at the Senior Bowl who told me that Sauce Gardner should be the first cornerback picked is looking pretty smart right now.

  136. Blitzy the Clown

    Finally! Uchena gets another with an assist from Neal

  137. Mick

    Onujiogu tackling better than Diggs.

    • Palatypus

      And Framingham State goes nuts.

  138. Blitzy the Clown

    That was two forward passes

    • Big Mike

      Took em long enough to get it right but at least they did

    • AlaskaHawk

      and four missed tackles. Thank god for the penalty

  139. KennyBadger

    That’s clearly 2 forward!

    • Palatypus

      A truly innovative offensive mind.

  140. Blitzy the Clown

    Derp derp

  141. ShowMeYourHawk

    2 forward passes in the same play? This isn’t practice in the NCAA, Kingsbury.

  142. Mick

    We could keep it three-and-out for the rest of the game and win it 10-7.

  143. ShowMeYourHawk

    Thanks, Geno……. SMH.

    • cha

      That play was going nowhere even if Walker catches it.

      Poor, poor decision.

  144. Blitzy the Clown


  145. Big Mike

    He telegraphed that by turning around and talking to Walker before the play even happened

  146. STTBM

    This is what sitting on your hands gets you. Playing not to lose makes you not win.

    And the Real Geno is back. Sigh. I was almost ready to believe in the guy. This game is a real stinker.

  147. Sea Mode

    Geno gotta work on those little rainbow passes. Was pardoned the 1st one, not this time.

  148. Blitzy the Clown

    Lazy pass

  149. Canadian Hawk


    Have they forgotten KW3 is still able to run?

  150. Mick

    For all the beautiful throws Geno’s made this season, I can give him this mistake.

  151. Romeo A57

    Please don’t let Geno turn into a pumpkin 🙏

    • Big Mike

      Well said

  152. Henry Taylor

    Geno is having his worst game of the year, except maybe San Fran.

    • Pran

      They are making Geno threw a lot it appears rather than pounding the ball..

  153. Sea Mode

    Apparently, we don’t believe we can run the ball against their DL I guess.

  154. 206

    He aint perfect. Lets see how the offense responds.

  155. bmseattle

    maybe we should sign Dalton this off season

  156. AlaskaHawk

    Can the Seahawks quite screwing around and pass downfield? Like past the first down marker? This looks exactly like previous years offenses. Moving laterally instead of downfield.

    Even if that pass was successful there were lots of defense in front of him.

  157. ShowMeYourHawk

    We’ll see what Geno is made of on this next drive. Will he revert back to pumpkin form? Or, will he take it personal and sharpen up?

  158. Blitzy the Clown

    Feed the dog!

  159. Kyle R

    Time for Waldron to adjust and adapt in the second half just like it looks like Arizona’s Defense has.

    • Kyle R

      Would like to see more TE uses and Walker runs

  160. Big Mike

    Are we collapsing?

    • Big Mike

      Looks that way

      • 206

        Boooooooooo. Lockett!

    • ShowMeYourHawk

      Appears so. Geno took this O out of its rhythm. They can get it back but not sure that the D can hold Murray scoreless the rest of the way.

      • AlaskaHawk

        It’s the play calling. Arizona defense is fast.

  161. Blitzy the Clown

    The catch and the foul

    • Big Mike

      If this was college he is sitting down until 2nd half of next week

  162. Kyle R

    See Locket you can take a hit and still make a first down!

  163. AlaskaHawk

    Finally a pass downfield = and thanks for holding on Lockett.

  164. cha

    Tough, gutsy response by Geno and the Hawks on this drive.

  165. Blitzy the Clown

    Now that’s a nice play. Run more of those

  166. Big Mike

    Is finally getting some rhythm back

  167. Blitzy the Clown

    DK the technician

  168. ShowMeYourHawk

    For the love of gods, get the first down. Head downhill!

    • Kyle R

      Yeah that was a rookie mistake but it got it right the next play.

  169. Blitzy the Clown

    I don’t understand some of these play calls

  170. Big Mike

    Is stop forcing it Gino

  171. Robbie

    Should have been picked….

    • Big Mike


  172. Sea Mode

    All Lockett does…

  173. Blitzy the Clown

    There we go! Some redemption

  174. STTBM

    Damn, Geno can battle, I give him that! Ice water in his veins too, that was a tense drive, and he converted 4 third downs!

  175. Henry Taylor

    Great bounceback drive, but both Geno’s TDs today have come after dropped picks, could be a very different day.

    • Big Mike

      Not his best day but credit for capitalizing too

  176. AlaskaHawk

    Yes Lockett. See they just need to make plays downfield.

    Every time the Seahawks go sideways they are beat = because the Arizona defense is faster than our line.

  177. ShowMeYourHawk

    There it is. Geno bounced back.

  178. Mick

    Way to come back. Lockett and DK are gold for us. I’m sorry to say this but Geno isn’t what he seemed to be. We’re lucky he didn’t throw 3 INTs so far.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      He’s human. He can have a bad game and still be what he seems.

      • Big Mike

        And like I said above credit to him for capitalizing on the is capitalizing on their missed opportunity twice

      • Blitzy the Clown

        And it’s not really a bad game

        More like an off game

    • 206

      Joe Burrow had a 3 pick game this, A-rod did today, let’s see where Geno is sitting at the end of the year and then make a judgement!

    • Hawkster

      That last ne was just a passed defensed with a lucky vertical bounce for the INT threat. But the TE had the defender blocked out throwing dead into a big body. Not an unreasonable decision IMO

    • cha

      If Geno overcomes this with some solid play that will only add to his prowess.

      Being able to win when you’re not at your best is a necessary trait to be successful in the NFL.

  179. Romeo A57

    Nice push off and catch by Tyler. Huge touchdown!

  180. Matt

    Geno has played well, but man I can never remember 7-8 easy interceptions (on the year) just being dropped by the defense. He’s riding a good combo of playing well and being absurdly lucky.

    • Matt

      This isn’t Geno hate – he’s played great. Again, just amazed how many absurdly easy interceptions are dropped. He could easily have 10 INTs this year.

  181. Kyle R

    Boo whooo Budda Baker did little ‘ol Tyler Locket push you that far off and back?!

  182. Pran

    Coming out that injury timeout, why don’t they run the ball. Lucky that INT was missed. Pete, pound the ball.

  183. Peter

    Walkers yards per carry are crap right now but I’d love to have him and the running backs get closer to 50/50 of the snaps going forward.

    Just burn as much time as possible on the clock.

  184. pdway

    AZ defense is better than I’d thought – nothing coming easy at all today, for an offense that has been rolling for weeks. conversion to Lockett the play of the game for us so far – we really needed it.

  185. ShowMeYourHawk

    If the rest of our pass rush could even be league average, Nwosu would be up there in sack leaders.

  186. cha

    Missed tackles today. So, so many missed tackles.

  187. Big Mike

    Tackling is absolute shit right now

  188. TomLPDX


  189. ShowMeYourHawk

    Bryant has a nose for the ball, but his tackling is less than impressive.

  190. AlaskaHawk

    Seahawks pass rush getting better = maybe they wore them down?

  191. Sea Mode

    We are so good at giving up 3rd and long it is sad

    • Rob Staton

      We’ve had a months worth of frustrating third and long conversions in this game

  192. Blitzy the Clown

    Irvin gets one

  193. Kyle R

    Old man Bruce power!

  194. Hawkster

    Bryant needs to make that tackle.

    • Rob Staton

      Tackling has been rubbish today

      • Rob Staton

        Every time a Cardinal is in the open field you anticipate the whiffed tackle

        • bmseattle

          We also don’t seem to be swarming to the ball as a defense, like we have been lately.

      • Hawkdawg

        Absolutely. The “want to” is there, but the technique is awful. Especially in the defensive backfield.

  195. Rob Staton

    I love Shelby Harris

  196. Blitzy the Clown

    Yes! Way to get off the field!

  197. ShowMeYourHawk

    Fant is a nice piece but Harris was a great grab by Schneider in that trade.

  198. Palatypus

    Und der Quarterback geht zu Boden !!!

  199. TomLPDX

    Good job old man! (Shelby)

  200. Rob Staton

    Bloody hell Dallas

    • Robbie

      Put someone else in there!

    • pdway

      I’d like to see Eskridge get a crack at it

      • bmseattle

        Me too.
        Wasn’t that part of his resume’ in college?

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Just waking up the fans

    • bmseattle

      If we’re just going to fair catch it every time, we might as well have Lockett back there.

    • Sea Mode

      Derius Davis on Day 3 please for all KR/PR duties please.

  201. pdway

    pass rush has been there all day today!

  202. STTBM

    Special Teams has lost their way this year. And we need a new punt returner.

  203. Matt

    Have to capitalize on this luck – won’t get the bounces like this all the time.

  204. Henry Taylor

    I would like to draft a punt returner in 2023.

    • AlaskaHawk


    • Sea Mode

      Check out TCU’s Derius Davis

    • 12th chuck

      I was hoping for a safety that can tackle tother than Neal

  205. Mick

    Dallas playing with our nerves. But it’s great we stopped them again. We should get at least a FG.

  206. Canadian Hawk

    I think we thing that has to be a must for the 2023 – draft someone who can return punts/kickoffs.

    Way too much of an adventure right now.

  207. Kyle R

    It’s the old men on the line getting it done in the send half. Bruce and Shelby

  208. Palatypus

    Bitte mehr Laufspiele mit Kenneth Walker.

    (Just practicing for next week.)

    • Feindt

      Ja, bitte!

      Das nimmt Zeit von der Uhr und öffnet Geno für den Play Action 🙂

  209. Blitzy the Clown

    Nice play action to Parkinson

    • Kyle R

      I’m loving the play action and bootlegs to the TEs.

    • Big Mike

      LOVED that play

  210. bmseattle

    Sure is nice to watch a game without a ton of penalties.

  211. pdway

    so nice having Walker on this team

  212. Peter

    Walker ypc going slowly up…..this is the time to feed him

  213. TomLPDX

    Old man Geno making the play..

    • TomLPDX

      Look at that old man go!!!!

  214. Mick

    Nice run Geno!

  215. cha


  216. Blitzy the Clown

    Hahaha Geno just foolin!

  217. Big Mike

    Where’s Walker?

    • Big Mike

      Call there he is

  218. Blitzy the Clown

    Cardinals know how to tackle

  219. TomLPDX

    I want this Walker TD!!!

    • TomLPDX


  220. Hawks4life

    Walker TD incoming

  221. Kyle R

    Give it to Walker and finish them!!!

  222. Blitzy the Clown

    Now we’re playin Seahawks football

  223. Palatypus

    [Que techno music]

    DU !!!

    DU HASST !!!


    • TomLPDX

      Stop already

  224. Mick

    Yess!!! Way to go Walker!

  225. Henry Taylor

    That was an incredible drive, I withdraw all my negative statements about Geno

    • Mick

      I still think sometimes he’s not making best decisions when throwing. But he did just perfect this drive.

  226. Blitzy the Clown

    Woof! Woof!

    The dog is barking!

  227. AlaskaHawk

    Yes that’s what I like to see. Geno still has some moves! Receivers catching balls and Walker pounding it home.

  228. Blitzy the Clown

    That was a gut check drive people

    • Peter

      Exactly. Letting teams hang around is not winning football. Putting teams away? That’s what a good team does.

  229. pdway

    well – – that’s just a winning football drive right there

    love the playcalling, Geno’s steadiness and willingness to take what’s there makes us a good 4th quarter team

  230. Matt

    Good teams capitalize on luck. Seahawks absolutely did that today. Big kudos.

  231. Big Mike

    Winning teams come up with big drives in situations like that.
    Now please don’t go completely prevent soft defense

    • pdway

      feels like this version of the Hawks will still get after the passer.

      what a fun season man

      • Big Mike

        It’s been awesome and I truly hope you are correct

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Let’s keep the tackles from slipping away. Stick to the man until help arrives

  232. AlaskaHawk

    I really think half of the offense problems have been trying to play laterally instead of downfield. I can’t blame Geno for those sort of issues, even if his sideways pass did get picked off earlier.

  233. bmseattle

    I love watching Geno get to the line early… evaluate what the defense is doing, then adjust the play.
    He’s always been talented, but it seems like the biggest difference with him has been his confidence and ability to read a defense.
    Such a cool thing to see.

    • pdway

      it’s such a breath of fresh air

  234. KennyBadger

    Pete Ball!

  235. Sea Mode


  236. Palatypus

    I don’t think that is a catch.

  237. Blitzy the Clown

    Looks like a catch and fumble to me

    • pdway

      looks a lot like tyler’s catch and fumble last week….

    • Henry Taylor

      He does start to turn, but it’s very quick. Might be one where the call on the field stands.

    • Hawkster

      Looked to me he initiated but did not complete the “football move”. INC.

  238. ShowMeYourHawk

    Not likely to hold up but a great play by Coby. When he’s not missing tackles, dude is a football pugilist.

    • pdway

      it’s true re his tackling – – but dude is definitely a contributor to this defensive surge — you want him out there. what a great 4th round find.

  239. Big Mike

    What will New York want it to be?
    You keep more viewers if it’s ruled incomplete

    • bmseattle

      I love your cynicism

      • Big Mike

        The immaculate deception, the tuck rule, I have a long history with the NFL and they’re arranging oh let’s not forget Super Bowl forty

        • bmseattle

          oh, i definitely concur

  240. AlaskaHawk

    They were calling those drops earlier in the season, seems like the officials have changed their minds. There was no football move.

    But I hope it works out in our favor. Nice hustle defense!

    • AlaskaHawk

      Darn it.

  241. Blitzy the Clown


  242. Big Mike

    Fuck Blandino

  243. AlaskaHawk

    Still time for Arizona to win on the 4.5 point spread.

  244. bmseattle

    we’ve mostly contained Hopkins today.

  245. Palatypus

    Arizona just took three minutes off the clock on this drive.

  246. Sea Mode

    Darn, that’s two Cobe Bryant turnovers negated today…

  247. ShowMeYourHawk

    Damn it, Uchenna. Waste of a bad snap.

  248. Pran

    Tackling is the worst

  249. ShowMeYourHawk

    Just plain ass. I get the D is gassed but this is what you play for.

  250. Big Mike

    Prevent defense and a shit call by New York to keep AZ in the game and now we’re faced with a need for first downs

  251. Rob Staton

    We better not blow this

  252. Palatypus

    How many first downs do we need? Four?

    • pdway

      two and we win

  253. Pran

    Diggs was just standing watching on that TD play.

  254. Blitzy the Clown

    Time for Walker to bust a big run

  255. pdway

    don’t get too conservative here. short pass plays are our bread and butter for 1st downs.

  256. Sea Mode

    Timeout on a kickoff? That’s a new one to me…

    • Big Mike

      Utterly bewildering

    • KennyBadger

      WTF man…

      And nice return Dee. What do you want me to do, dive for it?

  257. ShowMeYourHawk

    Here we go. Let’s not outsmart ourselves, please…

  258. cha


  259. TomLPDX

    Amazing play by Fant!

  260. Blitzy the Clown

    Man they’ve just torched Arizona on that misdirection play action to the TE

    • Big Mike

      And as most correctly pointed out for the 5th time today

      • Big Mike


  261. TomLPDX

    I keep waiting for K9 to break a big one

    • Blitzy the Clown

      It’s time…

      • Big Mike

        I’m in

      • TomLPDX

        Damn! Almost. Give it K9 to finish it.

        • TomLPDX

          Yes, yes, yes!!!!!!!


  262. Big Mike

    They just waste of the time out with fat offside

  263. cha

    Love it when you can hear the 12’s chants on the broadcast. SEA-HAWKS!

    • TomLPDX

      Yeah, I heard that!

  264. Blitzy the Clown

    That’ll do Kenny

    • Peter

      Oroy?….hope so

  265. cha

    That’s either 3 or 4 explosive runs for Walker today.

  266. bmseattle

    If we get out of this stadium without a serious injury, I’ll be thrilled

  267. Romeo A57

    Walker is closing out another game win 😀

  268. James Kupihea

    what the hell is with NFL coaches not saving a timeout for after the 2 minute warning?

  269. Palatypus

    Tom Brady just pass 100,000 passing yards.

    So I guess he’s no longer under warranty?

    • Big Mike

      I LOL’d

      • Palatypus

        I’ve been waiting all day with that one.

  270. Big Mike

    So that’s what a winning team does. I’m so impressed with this team

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Amen Big Mike. Amen

      • pdway

        love this team….Walker is special, RB’s like him are almost undervalued these days….

        • Big Mike

          Bijan Robinson likes this post

    • UkAlex6674

      Superb drive.

  271. Blitzy the Clown


  272. pdway

    this ain’t your 2021 seahawks!

  273. Trevor

    No that is how you close out a football game. Walker is a stud!

  274. AlaskaHawk


    • pdway


  275. Peter

    Lost in the geno smith hype train….

    Walker might actually be the real reason this offense is clicking.

    • TomLPDX

      Geno wants to have a word….

      • Peter

        Go look at genos stats. Seriously.

    • Peter

      Live the geno hype train btw.

  276. TomLPDX

    Here we go, we got this!

  277. cha

    A tough division win with overcoming some mistakes is just what the doctor ordered.

    This Seahawks team is for real.

    • Big Mike


    • Seattle Person

      They are closing out games too. I think that’s the one thing that has really made me excited. KWIII is the closer.

  278. KennyBadger

    What a season man.

  279. GoHawks5151

    That Colby Parkinson kick out play is money. Ran it back to back to get that TD. Same one as the long TD vs SD. Schematically beautiful, executed even better

    • pdway

      totally. last year that’s a run into the middle of a stacked line for 1 yard. our playcalling this season is 100X better than last.

    • Hawkdawg

      Great play call in that situation.

  280. pdway

    Nwosu could use a pass rush buddy…..but man, he’s been dynamite in these 4th quarter close out the game situations this year.

    • bmseattle

      what a signing!

  281. Trevor

    Has there been a better FA signing than Nwosu?

    • Hawkster

      The Lynch, Avril, Bennet signings didn’t suck.

      • Hawkster

        (oops, Lynch was a trade, a 6th?)

        • Hawkdawg

          I think a 4th….

  282. ShowMeYourHawk

    Keep eating, D. Kyler needs to take a few more sacks to keep the clock running.

  283. Kyle R

    Somebody that is much better than me at creating memes needs to do an old school Mortal Kombat “finish him” but with Kenneth Walker photoshoped on it.

  284. cha

    Even LJ Collier is getting a sack!

    • Palatypus

      Onions? Potatoes?

  285. Troy

    Anyone care to hazard a guess what our record with be with Wilson? I’m honestly stating 3-6. Geno has been that good, and Wilson has been that bad

    • Big Mike

      You just had to say it didn’t you? Can’t we just move on

      • TomLPDX

        Already have. Let’s ride!

      • Troy

        You can move on if you want but I’m not gonna forget that robot forcing his way out of Seattle for a long time

        • Big Mike

          Good for you. You be you big guy

        • Peter

          Good for you.

          Sorry you can’t just revel in a win.

          • Troy

            lol who says I didn’t enjoy the win? False equivalence much Peter?

    • AlaskaHawk

      He’s been playing hurt this season.

    • Peter

      I dunno.

      Wanna guess what this record would be without seven tds from walker in tge last five games?

      • Big Mike

        Just as bad because Wilson is the worst quarterback in the history of football

  286. Big Mike

    The best formation there is, the victory formation

  287. Henry Taylor

    4 two score wins on the bounce

  288. Trevor

    This rookie class is ridiculously good. Woolen did as good a job on Hopkins today as I have every seen any QB with little or no help most times.

  289. Sea Mode

    Who’s gonna do the victory formation backflip with Goodwin out…?

    • Big Mike

      Do you know if he’ll be back next week? He was missed today

      • Peter

        No doubt. Sneaky solid addition

  290. Blitzy the Clown

    Well done Seattle

  291. ShowMeYourHawk

    Great win! But lost in the hoopla…. Did we escape this field of horrors without an injury?

    • pdway

      now we can say it without jinxing it.!!

    • Big Mike

      I think we did! Good point

    • TomLPDX

      We DID!!! Not lost on me.

      • bmseattle

        I held my breath on that 2nd to last Walker run.
        The turf was flying up all over that place. How many knees has it destroyed?

  292. pdway

    they just said Hawks converted their last seven 3rd downs in a row….that’s great offense.

    • Hawkster

      Geno with his legs for some clutch conversions in that stretch.

      • Sea Mode

        That really was the key when we needed it. They didn’t have anyone spying him.

    • STTBM

      That’s a tired out defense. I hate saying it, because it almost fell apart, but PeteBall worked, wearing the D down by making them run side to side for three quarters, then pounding the ball straight down their throat to close the game out.

  293. pdway

    stars are really pretty one-sided – – more so than the score.

    We outgained them 421-262, and had 27 first downs to their 15.

    Without that pick-6, it’s a pretty stress-free win.

    • Seattle Person

      10-15 on 3rd downs for the offense. 2 sacks allowed.

      5 sacks for the defense. 6/14 for the Cardinals on 3rd downs.

      I think the Seahawks completely outclassed the Cardinals.

  294. Troy

    Would you rather have Kenneth Walker, Noah Fant, Shelby Harris, Geno Smith, and more 1st round draft picks next year, or Russell Wilson and his $250 million contract?

    Shit this is a hard one guys give me some time

    • Feindt

      Plus Charles Cross

      • Troy

        As bad as the Jamal trade was JS redeemed himself with the Wilson trade

        • Peter

          Hey Rob.

          I will literally pay your air fare to Alabama if after 8 more games are over anyone including me brings up the former qb they get blocked.

          • Big Mike

            I’ll cover half of it Peter

          • Troy

            Lol I think I agree after this season we shouldn’t bring him up anymore

    • Big Mike

      Add if Pete and John hadn’t screwed up the last 5 drafts in a row maybe it would have turned out differently.

  295. Palatypus

    Tom Brady looks like he wants to leave the country.

  296. cha

    DeAndre Hopkins: 4 catches on 5 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown

    • James

      no rushing touchdowns given up!

    • Peter

      This is a killer stat

  297. Sea Mode

    Bucs with a miracle drive and now set up on the 1 yd line!

    • pdway

      and Rams to 3-5, feels like it’s is cocktail o’clock….

    • Sea Mode

      Yeah, baby! Take the L, Rams!!

      • Big Mike

        Total choke

  298. Blitzy the Clown

    TB just took the lead vs LA! 15-13 Bucs with only 9 seconds left

    Doing us a favor before we beat them next week in Munich

  299. Hawks4life

    Have a fun flight back to LA

  300. Big Mike

    I think mcvey retires at the end of the year

    • Sea Mode

      Hopefully Donald finally
