Curtis Allen’s week twelve watchpoints (vs Raiders)

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

The Seahawks come out of one of the latest bye weeks in the Pete Carroll era refreshed and mostly healthy, a half a game out of the division lead and with five of their final seven games at home. They are set up with the playoffs in sight about as well as a team can be. Can they start a run that elevates this unexpected season from being a mere feel-good story to a playoff team? We are about to find out.

Pete Carroll has a 7-5 record in the Seahawk era in games following a bye week. They will need a ‘taking care of business’ win against the Raiders, who are having an unexpected season of their own – just in the other direction.

On offense, they are adjusting to new coach Josh McDaniels’ offense but they have been absolutely hammered by injuries.

Top targets Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow are on Injured Reserve. That is about 120-130 yards per game in the trainer’s room right there and Foster Moreau and Mack Hollis have not been able to fill those gaps adequately. Yet both Waller and Renfrow were more than pure numbers. They were players that pushed the offense forward down the field. First downs and explosive plays in the clutch were their calling card. It is no wonder they are having trouble this year.

On defense, it has been a disaster. Their pass rush other than Maxx Crosby has been awful. They are dead last in the NFL in sacks and bottom-ten in the other quarterback-effect stats (hurries, pressures and pressure %) despite blitzing a healthy 29% of the time. As a result, they are giving up a net of seven yards gained per pass attempt.

Their run defense is not much better. They have conceded 100 yards rushing in every loss this year except one – Week One against the Chargers, where the offense turned the ball over three times.

At 3-7, their playoff hopes are all but dashed at this point. There are eleven teams ahead of them in the AFC playoff seeding. They are not mathematically eliminated yet but it would take something historic to get them into the playoffs.

You know the drill. Playing a team in that shape in Week Twelve with very little on the line can be either a cakewalk or stepping into a big bear trap.

I prefer a cakewalk.

The Raiders have some top talent the Seahawks will have to contend with but precious little depth.

How do they minimize those key players and take advantage of a depleted roster?

Control the Game

This has been a regular issue I have been pounding the table on this season. So much good can be accomplished by establishing your tempo by running the ball, throwing for some quick strikes and building a lead. This is especially important in this game. Like I mentioned above, the Raiders are on the ropes. A quick start could lead to a relatively low-stress second half for the Seahawks.

The numbers statistically also support that strategy.

The Raiders are one of the worst first-quarter offenses (3.3 points per game) and the Seahawks are one of the best (6.4 ppg).

That number for Seattle is a bit misleading though. They scored 17 in the first quarter of the Chargers game and cruised to a victory in Week Seven. But in the next three games, they failed to score any points in the first quarter twice and only got a field goal in the other game.

They need to get back to coming out of the gate quickly. Pete Carroll and Shane Waldron seemed to play the first quarter against the Bucs in Munich very conservatively, seemingly sizing them up and adjusting to the field conditions. It cost them as their late comeback fell short.

Every Raiders statistic says that coming out and aggressively mixing the run and pass game is an effective strategy. Derek Carr’s numbers in clutch time so far this year have been absolutely horrible:

-He is throwing only a 59.78% completion rate on third downs
-His second-half completion percentage is 54.86% (down from 70% and 66% the last two years)
-That includes a putrid 50.89% in the fourth quarter

This despite Carr having the most time in the pocket (2.6 seconds) and low sack numbers (20) and pressure percentages (20.3%).

Turning up the heat and not letting the Raiders comfortably set up their offensive playbook is very important.

Why? Overall poor numbers matter little when you are tied in the fourth quarter or overtime and Carr has an absolute beast to throw to…

Keep Davante Adams from Wrecking the Game

With their other receivers badly banged up, Carr has looked for Adams a lot lately and their relationship on the field is really starting to bear fruit.

Adams is one of the NFL’s best wide receivers and lately he has been showing it. In his last three games he has averaged 9.5 catches for 136 yards and 1.5 touchdowns. Two of those games he was matched up with excellent corners Patrick Surtain and Stephen Gilmore at times.

He is a real weapon and the huge investment the Raiders made to acquire and extend him is really paying off. I feel forced to use the dreaded cliché ‘you can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him.’

There are ways to limiting his effectiveness that have nothing to do with how you defend him.

First off, as I mentioned, a quick start is necessary. Why?

Adams has brought his savvy and game intelligence with him to Las Vegas. He is so good at selling routes that he can build a route tree to set defenders up for later in the game.

He did that on the overtime game-winner on Surtain. He had run the route to continue to the left side of the field two or three times earlier in the game and in overtime Surtain bit, thinking he had Adams bracketed with the safety. Adams broke the other way and left everyone in the dust:

He was able to make the play at a clutch time because he had opportunity earlier in the game to set up the move. Those opportunities come when the Raiders have the ball and have the time to run those plays and get Adams into the flow of the game and into defenders’ heads.

Just like when he was in Green Bay working with Rodgers, the Raiders spend the early part of the game with short passes, effectively establishing a pattern and feeling the defense out for these strikes later in the game.

What makes it so effective is the team as able to move the offense forward while establishing these setups. Adams has the short-area quickness and strong hands to take those 5–8-yard routes and turn them into first downs. He then has the speed and read-and-react ability to take advantage later in the game to catch defenders predicting where he will go and incorrectly jumping the route.

If the Seahawks can score on offense (and eating up some clock time while doing it would be a real added bonus) they can put pressure on the Raider offense and disrupt some of this route-building activity. It hinders an extremely effective schematic weapon and levels the playing field a little.

The other thing that can help the Seahawks is playing the percentages. In the last three games, Carr has targeted Adams 44 times. Josh Jacobs and Hollis have about 15-16 targets each in that span. Everyone else is in single digits.

Jacobs is coming out of the backfield. The point being, when Carr wants to throw downfield, he is looking for Adams.

Double cover him. Bracket him. Drop a linebacker or the strong safety and disrupt his crossing routes.

Adams deserves all the attention he will get from the defense. Nobody should line up for a play and not know where #17 is. This is where the defensive coaching staff may have to bend their principles a little. Having say Quandre Diggs covering a specific area where a less-effective wide receiver is running may be the schematically smart play but there may be times it would be wise to trust your corners to cover them one on one and have everyone else focus on Adams.

The only other Raider the Seahawks need to worry about may not even play on Sunday…

Keep Josh Jacobs in Check

At the moment, Jacobs is listed as questionable to play because of a hamstring injury.

If he is unable to go, it would be quite the opportunity for the Seahawks to capitalize and make the Raiders one-dimensional.

Jacobs IS the Raiders’ rushing attack this year. He has 930 yards rushing. Who is their next best rusher? Derek Carr with 67 yards rushing. Nobody else on their roster has as many as ten rushing attempts.

If he plays and is able to give it a full effort, the Seahawks will have a real challenge in keeping him in check. He is a treat to watch – when you are not defending him.

He is far and away the NFL’s king in yards after contact at 2.9 per carry (Chubb is second at 2.7). He may be the best runner of the football in traffic today. Jacobs is able to get skinny and slippery to take advantage of the smallest holes, push through arm tackles and keep plowing forward. Every time you think he is contained, whoops there he goes for four yards.

He has sixteen broken tackles, good for fifth in the NFL.

Tampa Bay showed some runs and looks that the Seahawks did not game plan for and when they needed to stop their run game, they could not. I think it is fair to say that the Raiders were watching.

If you want to keep control of this game and not allow Davante Adams into the end zone waving goodbye to the Seahawks fans at Lumen on Sunday, getting Jacobs to the ground as quickly as possible is mission critical.

Everyone Must Keep Maxx Crosby from Disrupting the Offense

Crosby is the lone shining star on a pretty rotten Raider defense. He has a sparkling 89.9 PFF rating and it is not hard to see why on the field.

Against the Raiders last week, he had: six tackles, four pressures, two sacks, three QB hits, a forced fumble and blocked a field goal try. Unreal. Davante Adams rightly got a lot of attention for a great game against Denver but I would contend Crosby’s day was better. He was a one-man wrecking crew against that sputtering Bronco offense.

He primarily lines up over the Right Tackle. Games like this are why we all celebrated when Abe Lucas slid to them in the third round of the draft this year. Lucas will have his work cut out for him.

Watch Crosby employ his signature spin move and do it so quickly the right guard cannot pick him up. He splits the two easily and takes Russell Wilson down:

Deadly. That spin move has twisted several tackles right into the ground.

It is not all on Lucas to keep him in check. Watch his second sack. Jayon Brown comes in to pick the right tackle and for some reason Melvin Gordon thinks a 300-lb right tackle needs help with a 227-lb linebacker and leaves a huge hole for Crosby to whiz right by him and take Wilson down again.

I am not saying this is why Gordon was later cut — but yikes.

This is similar to what I said about Adams. Right now, there is one player that can really hurt you and disrupt the game. If everyone is aware of it, you have a chance to keep his speed and power in check.

Lucas will take the point in the one on one.

The running backs will need to help when they are charged with pass protection.

Geno Smith will want to get the ball out quickly and have his head-timer functioning properly. He has delivered great numbers this year while being blitzed 32.9% of the time. The Seahawks need that kind of performance against a desperate team who may throw the kitchen sink at him. And when they do not, Crosby can win in base defense. Smith will need to be up to the task.

If they can keep these principles in mind, they can move the football as they like. The game will come swimmingly to them. If they cannot — and Crosby turns in another performance like he did last week — we will all be left to question how one of the NFL’s worst defenses was able to keep a team with all of the Seahawks’ offensive firepower down.


  1. Peter

    Pretty intrigued by this game.

    Heading into the stretch to see if Seattle can put it all together at the same time and punch their ticket to the dance or is it going to be about half the games this season where one side works while the other doesn’t.

    For Waldron rightful praise this year I need to see if some dimension is stuck, faster processing to another form of attack.

    Regardless of who is running the rock are teams going to look at the bucs game and just try to run right at the defense?

    A game removed from a barely win against the equally cruddy broncos does Carr’s “clear eyes, full hearts,” histrionics matter? Or are the raiders who I thought they were at the beginning of the season? A team with a journeymen level qb who just hasn’t played anywhere else coupled with one of the worst headcoaches in the game?

  2. bmseattle

    Is Lucas even playing today?
    Crosby v. Curhan does not inspire confidence.

    • TomLPDX

      I’m wondering the same thing. Hope he is well enough to play.

    • Mick

      Throw in a TE or Homer there and we’ll do OK with Curhan too.

  3. Robbie

    Never in my life have I ever rooted for Carolina! Today is the day 🙂 Can you imagine if they beat the Broncos today!

    • Rob Staton

      Hope that Panthers D-line are revved up

    • Elmer

      They are starting Sam Darnold at QB today. I hope that he succeeds. Go Panthers!

    • Romeo A57

      I just can’t have much confidence in Darnold. However the spread is only 1 it is expected to be a competitive game.

      Go Panthers!

  4. Big Mike

    It’s all in front of you Seahawks………….5 of the last 7 at home and 4 against poorer teams (Raiders, Rams X2 and Panthers). It begins today. Get it done.

    • Rob Staton

      This is a huge game

      After the bye, coming off a loss, a winnable game

      Need to get the job done today

    • Peter

      Not just get it done.

      I don’t need a 2012 style hammering. But show me something Seattle…after the bye I want to see a solid in control game against a miserable opponent where the outcome isn’t in doubt.

      I’ll enjoy a win but not really interested in “any given sunday,” narratives. The raiders this year are crap.

  5. Rob Staton

    The Panthers are so bad

    I think Mayfield possibly gives them a better chance to win too

    • bmseattle

      It’s difficult to imagine the Panthers being able to score much, if at all, against the Denver defense.

    • Gaux Hawks

      Wondering if that was a “strategic” move by the FO in Carolina… seems like a good time for an experiment at QB (playing against your draft competition).

    • Rob Staton

      I take that back!

      • Gaux Hawks


      • Elmer

        Late first quarter,Denver trailing 7-0. Broncos have 8 yards of total offense, including 3 passing yards by RW. Darnold with 1 TD pass.

  6. Dave Stacey

    Thanks for your write ups this week Curtis. Very good.
    Come on Panthers !

  7. jed

    Thanks for all the great reads this week cha!

    Belichick would scheme the heck out of a game like this against the Raiders. Three clear guys to shut down and you break the team.

  8. Blity the Clown

    A little off topic but Penix has another year of eligibility and he’s only 22.

    I hope he stays at UW. And I hope DeBoer gives him the room to develop.

    Oh and Carolina just scored the first points of the game 7-0 over Denver

    Go Panthers!

    • Elmer

      Broncos stink so far. How long can this coach last?

  9. Rob Staton

    Go Bears

    • KD

      So if Seattle, Carolina and Chicago win, we would then own the #3 overall pick? Do i have that right?

  10. Rob Staton

    The Panthers are going to blow this aren’t they

    • Robbie

      They are trying! Stupid muffed punt.

    • Ashish

      I mean you would think with 20 yards they will score but no. This keeps our hope up.

  11. Robbie

    They didn’t even let Russ try to throw….says A LOT!

    • Ashish

      Seriously 3rd and 1 and 5 yard throw for a touch down. They ran 3 times for 1st Goal.

  12. Blitzy the Clown

    Thanks cha I hope that even if Lucas plays (and especially if he doesn’t) they cover the RT with a TE to keep Crosby from wrecking drives

  13. Blitzy the Clown

    This Denver Carolina game is a clown car show

    • Denver Hawker

      User name checks out

    • Elmer

      Orange hair, red noses, big floppy feet.

  14. Trevor

    My goodness Russ is so bad it is embarrassing. Almost feel bad for him. Wonder if the Broncos will be forced to sit him and perhaps start fresh next year. He just looks lost with zero confidence.

    • Peter


      Probably have to suck it up and get a new coach. Not blaming Hackett but an axe will probably fall.

      Not sure sitting him will do much.

      He’s certainly not raising anyone up. But that whole offense is a tire fire.

  15. Mick

    3 points in one half against Carolina, this is really awful from the Broncos.

  16. TomLPDX

    All these good games in the early slot and all I get is Bucs/Browns…geez. I won’t even bother watching it.

    • JimQ

      I think “letting Russ cook” has turned into “Russ IS cooked.

  17. Roy Batty

    I have a Raider Nation coworker at the game today. He flew in early and is flying out late.

    I want him to show up speechless and surly tomorrow morning.

    I will break my fast on his misery.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      And a fine repast it shall be

      This is the way

  18. cha

    Lucas is active


    Penny Hart
    Tony Jones Jr
    Jake Curhan
    Artie Burns
    Teez Tabor
    Myles Adams

    • Mick

      Probably Stone Forsythe at RT.

      • Mick

        I mean, if Lucas can’t make it all game.

        • Blitzy the Clown

          Seems like they’d have Curhan active if there was any doubt about Lucas

          • TomLPDX

            Isn’t Stone the backup tackle and Curhan the backup guard?

            • Blitzy the Clown

              Curhan is listed as #2 RT on the team’s depth chart

          • Big Mike


  19. Romeo A57

    Houston seems to have a lock on the first pick. Losing by 30 at the half in the NFL is well past embarrassing. That is full blown tank mode.

  20. Hunter

    It oooks like the Denver d has just quit trying, I don’t think they win another one this year

  21. David Ashton

    Loving the jam roly poly into the end zone. Truly the finest td i ever did see

  22. Mick

    In the meanwhile Denver has decided to switch to Pete-ball, as this worked best for Wilson.

  23. Hoggs41

    Cmon Carolina, lets not mess this up.

  24. Ben

    Denver is so bad. They might give us the #2 pick at this rate, forget the #3.

    • Romeo A57

      I wish, but with as bad as the Bears and Texans are playing, it is probably too much to ask for.

  25. MarkinSeattle

    Russ has a history of injuries effecting his accuracy and play performance. I am wondering if his earlier injuries aren’t still affecting him, both physically and mentally. He also has a history of playing through injuries and not saying anything. If it is a bum shoulder, then he will continued to be impacted the rest of the year rather than just being out of sync with him receivers and eventually working through it.

    I do like Russ and I feel sorry for him, but I want him to continue to struggle this year to help our draft spots. He can return to form next year….

    • Ashish

      I feel Russ is selfish putting team in bad spot by playing injured.

  26. Peppapig

    Broncos are imploding all over. Hard to watch.

    • Hawks4life

      Easy to watch as a Seahawks fan

  27. Rob Staton

    Even though the Seahawks are now going to be picking at least #4 overall after today, the situation doesn’t really change. Unless they get above Chicago and Vegas, they likely won’t get to the top two defensive players.

    • Mick

      If we get at #4 any of Carter, Anderson, Levis and Richardson, I’m happy with the pick.

      • Ukhawk


      • AlaskaHawk

        Wow – it’s like a dream come true!

    • MarkinSeattle

      So what I hear you saying is that a Seahawks loss today wouldn’t completely be a loss. More like a kind of loss.

  28. Rob Staton


    • Big Mike

      Nothing there Rob?

      • Big Mike

        NM it’s there now

    • Peter

      Meh. Some jobber level nt on a crap team is upset.

      Russ sucks. They have a crap offense. And the defense is giving up wide open shots to adams and then sweet single arm tackles to Roly poly darnold.

    • Trevor

      They are going to fire the coaching staff but not sure how Russ wins that locker room back at this point.

      • Peter

        Fire team 3. To start

  29. Peppapig

    I can’t see Denver winning another game. Internal blow up incoming I think.

  30. cha

    DIGGS! What a catch!

    • cha

      Start quick? Check.

      • Mick

        Yess, this is what we need, great way to get going.

      • Big Mike

        Double check
        TD Walker 😀

  31. Blitzy the Clown

    Burger King is proving my hypothesis that if you sing the same word over and over again it will piss off a lot of people

    Shut up
    Shut up
    Shut up
    Shut up
    I don’t give a f*ck about it
    I don’t want your stupid ear worm
    Ruining my day

  32. Peppapig

    Russ don’t look right to me. I think the beatings he’s taken over the years have caught up to him.

  33. KD

    Go Walker! What a chad!

  34. AlaskaHawk

    What a great start on both offense and defense. Now don’t let up – show us some killer instinct.

  35. cha

    Did I just see Cody Barton run through a hole and tackle the ball carrier?

    Glory in the heights above.

  36. Bmseattle

    Terrible tackle effo4t by Brooks, there

  37. Denver Hawker

    And the Jags take the lead!

  38. Big Mike

    Backup QB? That makes me nervous.

  39. Bmseattle

    Diggs taketh away…and now giveth back.

    • Big Mike


  40. Big Mike

    Any kind of pressure there on that play does not turn out the way it did

    • Big Mike

      Any NFL quarterback with that kind of time is going to burn you

  41. Pran

    Defense back to its ways… hot knife through butter.

    • Big Mike

      Terrible series

  42. Denver Hawker

    Browns win in final minute of OT!

  43. Bmseattle

    I so want a center that doesnt get pushed backward every play

    • Big Mike

      Me too, badly.

      None the less, a Dissley drop meant end of the drive.

  44. AlaskaHawk

    What happened to the offensive line giving some pass protection? Krikey! They were coming in from multiple directions.

  45. Hawks4life

    Diggs woke up and decided to play football today

  46. Henry Taylor

    Diggs ending every Raiders drive one way or another.

  47. Big Mike

    A play by Barton again

    • Hawkster

      Barton seems to be playing better football recently. True, there was nowhere to go but up, but he just isn’t as lost out there.

  48. Mick

    Come on get a TD not a silly FG.

  49. Rob Staton

    Jags potentially winning is good for draft position

    • Hawkster

      FG from 67 short, Jags win.

    • Rob Staton

      Jags win!

      • 206

        That was a great ending. Good for Trevor!

  50. Ukhawk

    Bunch of 3-7 teams win to close out their games and NOT the Broncos!!

  51. Rob Staton

    Geno was absolutely terrible on that drive

    • Pran

      Geno competing with Carr at the same time DK with two worst possible attempts on the last two throws.

  52. Big Mike

    Shit decision Geno

  53. Blitzy the Clown

    Hey I’m as happy as anyone that Diggs showed up today. But let’s not pretend for one second this changes anything about his place on the team past the end of the season

    Poor pass choice by Geno

    • AlaskaHawk

      IS there a chance that Diggs has been playing injured and he is improving now?

    • 805Hawk

      Diggs has benefited from good D by Barton and a poorly thrown ball by Carr. I’ll give him credit for catching the INTs and being in the right place at the right time, though.

  54. Blitzy the Clown

    The proper call is to reverse the on field call.

    That’s not a catch

    • Big Mike


      Man I hope Geno does not revert back to Geno of years past

  55. AlaskaHawk

    I don’t think the Raiders maintained control of the football. But, they need to draw up another play. There is no margin of error when your on the back line.

    Also I don’t think it’s that bad a pass, neither one was catchable by the defense unless they were even better at high pointing than DK Metcalf.

  56. Henry Taylor

    That was obviously never coming off pre-snap. Safety was over there, just take the check down.

  57. Mick

    Yey Poona. D doesn’t look that bad today.

  58. Big Mike

    Hey Geno, quit trying to force the ball to DK.

  59. AlaskaHawk

    Love the way Poona Ford is playing. Feed the Big Dog!

    Also like the way Geno Smith is using tight ends. Disley may end up with most yardage today.

  60. Bmseattle

    Carr just hasn’t looked as good since he quit wearing eyeliner.

    • Rob Staton


  61. Blitzy the Clown

    Beautiful toss to DK

    • Blitzy the Clown


      • Big Mike

        On 3rd down too. Big play

        • Big Mike

          The first one was on 3rd obviously

  62. Blitzy the Clown

    DK is damn near as big as Fant

  63. Blitzy the Clown

    An awkward feeling in an awkward season where I’ve been able to simultaneously root for my team to win and still hope to get a higher draft pick…not today

  64. Bmseattle

    Lockett fell aftermakimg the catch..again.

    • Romeo A57

      It is a smart business decision. Get the first down and save your head from getting knocked off. Wide Receivers are people too 🙂

    • TomLPDX

      Looked like a bang-bang play to me. What’s your point?

      • Bmseattle

        That it’s somewhat comical how consistently Lockett falls down immediately after catching the ball…even when noone is near to him.

  65. Glor

    Geno looking pretty good this drive

    • Rob Staton

      Hopefully someone had a word. We don’t need to force anything today. Not this early, with this score anyway.

  66. Rob Staton

    How crap are the Chargers???

    Wonder if Payton ends up there

    • Hawks4life

      He could do wonders with Herbert IMO

      • TomLPDX

        Somebody needs to. The guy is too talented.

    • Bmseattle

      Good call.
      Coaching Herbert is probably pretty appealing to him

    • Big Mike

      I’d definitely want that job if I were him.

  67. TomLPDX

    Damn D, stop giving them yards

  68. Rob Staton

    Our defense badly needs an X-factor D-lineman

    • Trevor

      They need a linebacker who can cover and tackle as well. A leader who can get everyone organized and on the same page would not hurt either.

  69. Roy Batty

    What a busted coverage joke. No one saw the TE leaking? Horrible defensive stand.

  70. Rob Staton

    This defense has a crap play like that for a TD wayyyyy too often

  71. Mick

    They score so easily and we get field goals where we should be getting more points. Not looking great.

    • Rob Staton

      That’s the big issue. Unless we get a turnover — we’re not laying a finger on them

  72. Big Mike

    We are getting out played. We have not made them punt yet. 2 turnovers and we’re gonna be behind by a point

    • Roy Batty

      Someone, anyone, on the edge needs to get consistent pressure.

  73. Blitzy the Clown

    Enough already!

    Stop playing footsies with the gd Raiders!

  74. cha

    Not exactly sure why they decided to announce it during a game, but Seahawks throwbacks are confirmed for 2023.

    Looks like they’re telling us it’ll be the blue jersey/grey pants combo with silver helmets.

  75. Pran

    We are in for a long game. Offense is not capitalizing on opportunities and defense is just bad when Carr does not force throws.

  76. Big Mike

    If we blow such a fantastic chance at the playoffs it will be because of this defense

  77. AlaskaHawk

    Trick play – fool me once! The question is – how many more times can they run that play before the Seahawks defend it?

  78. Gaux Hawks

    I want to win this game… but there is some silver lining if LV gets another W.

    • Roy Batty

      The one silver lining to getting beat by a crap team.

  79. AlaskaHawk

    I said early on that the Seahawks need to show some killer instinct. It ain’t there yet.

  80. Roy Batty

    What a shit show.

  81. Blitzy the Clown

    WTF is that?

  82. seaspunj

    Seahawks need to regain their composure

    they need to win

  83. Henry Taylor

    This has been a very up and down game.

  84. ShowMeYourHawk

    Garbage. This defense is full of leftover mashed potatoes and suck.

  85. Big Mike

    Nice tackling

  86. Glor

    Wow, really disappointed in locket on that one

    • Big Mike

      Yeah he seemed to just give up. I get that he’s small but good Lord

    • Blitzy the Clown

      I can’t believe he just stopped his route

      • Bmseattle

        Apparantly he also makes business decisions before he catches the ball, as well

  87. jack frost

    reversion to the mean?

    • Rob Staton

      Looking that way

  88. Blitzy the Clown

    I’m probably gonna post this more than once this afternoon

    Might help soothe some of the discomfort

  89. AlaskaHawk

    Not sure what to say. But if they don’t win this game it is going to break the Seahawks spirit.

    • Big Mike

      It would be a very bad loss. This team is 3-7, THREE AND SEVEN! They’ve got one win vs someone not named Broncos

  90. seaspunj

    Seahawks need to win the LOS battles … they can still grind out a hard fought game… gotta keep running the ball

  91. Pran

    Guess Hawks is out of luck, two bad games in a row. Back to drawing board.

  92. Trevor

    The majority of this upcoming draft needs to be on defense front 7 and safety.

  93. Rob Staton

    * Logs on to Tankathon to see what is needed to get two top-10 picks *

    • Bmseattle

      …not as angry about Saints and Falcons games…

      • Spectator

        Lol what does it say it will take? Haha

    • Matt

      I’m really curious to see how Geno finishes this season. Seems like his interception luck could be running out.

      My big fear is that he ends the year “playing decent,” in which case I think it muddies the waters for the off-season. We shall see.

      Thank God Denver is imploding.

      • Rob Staton

        Could’ve had three picks so far… worrying

        • Matt

          Great timing with our comments, lol.

          He’s played well but also has had incredible luck on the INT front.

  94. Chris

    We really need impact dline and a good 3rd w.r

  95. 12th chuck

    what a shame

  96. 805Hawk

    So, is the defense the one in the middle of the season or the one from the first few games and the last two? Kinda feels like we are coming back down to reality.

  97. Romeo A57

    My unpopular opinion is that this game is more indicative of what the Seahawks team is supposed to be. The 6 wins clouded that this is a rebuild.

    Defense can’t rush the QB and is weak at stopping the run

    QB making poor decisions and trying to force the ball into spots

    Offensive Line not opening running lanes

    • 206

      The QB that still ain’t writing back

  98. Blitzy the Clown

    There you go. Get Walker the ball in space and let him do his thing

  99. DJ 1/2 way

    If the Seahawks end up with the third pick and get to (have to) choose between Jalen Carter, Will Levis and Richardson I think my head might explode. If Rob is right all three will not be there making this much easier.

    I guess the way Geno is playing today you might want to go quarterback. The last two games are too small of a sample size, but they will know by the end of the year. Lets go Geno!

    In the spirit of Joe Theismann, maybe Will Levis should get an endorsement ccontract with Levi Strauss and change the pronunciation to match the brand in plural!

  100. Rob Staton

    That’s better

    I see we’re watching the BIG-12 again this week

    • Blitzy the Clown


  101. Blitzy the Clown

    All he does is…

    Where’s V12?

  102. Chris

    And that drive is how geno gets paid

    • Matt

      We shall see…my concern with Geno is that despite having played very well; he could easily be sitting at 12+ INTs this year. He’s really had crazy luck on that front – and no, I’m not saying he hasn’t played well.

      The analogy I have for him is the power hitter who strikes out 150 times but has a season where they hit .300. I just have trouble betting on him repeating that.

      It’s such an interesting situation – unprecedented.

  103. Big Mike

    Subtly great route

    • AlaskaHawk

      Yes, I don’t mind if Lockett avoids contact. He’s the size of a smerf, just catch the ball and score touchdowns dude.

  104. Big Mike

    Could we maybe play some defense now?

    • cha

      They’re playing decoy with Davante Adams. 2 catches for only 17.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Dayam. Diggs came to play today

  105. Big Mike

    What is a pass rush?

  106. Bmseattle

    Refs are really hands off this game

  107. Blitzy the Clown

    Jalen Carter runs down Carr there

    Just sayin

    • seaspunj

      who would you rather have

      QB Levis or Richardson or Welcome Back Jalen Carter

      • Blitzy the Clown

        The QB

        Not sure which. Depends on what you do with Geno.

        Seattle’s offense is pretty structured and well rostered at this point. Levis is mature enough to step into that scheme in his rookie season. If Geno moves on, Levis makes the most sense,

        Anderson needs a red shirt year. I would not recommend he start for any team. So if Geno is viable in Seattle for the next season or two, then Anderson becomes hard to pass up.

  108. Chris

    10 yd cushion on 3rd & 2

  109. 12th chuck

    secondary sure has regressed the last couple games

    • Bmseattle

      Woolen is the only guy im excited about going forward

      • Big Mike

        I wish they would play Bryant at corner instead of nickel so we knew how good he could be

      • 12th chuck

        I was hoping Brown would improve the right side, but haven’t seen him yet

  110. Hawkster

    On most plays Carr throws the ball when he sees what he wants, not because of anything resembling pressure. Seems DBs need to play more off if they expect to be covering for the better part of a commercial break.

  111. Big Mike

    Don’t celebrate yet defense they’re gonna go for it

  112. Bmseattle

    Woolen cant contain there.

    Not good

  113. cha

    Irvin and Barton blown off the edge.

  114. ShowMeYourHawk

    My kingdom for a QB pressure.

    • Big Mike

      What is this QB pressure you speak of?

  115. Blitzy the Clown

    Woolen couldn’t contain, not that it’s all on him

  116. Big Mike

    All we need is there is for one guy to beat a block but it didn’t happen

  117. Chris

    It’s hard to coach around a bad dline

    • Rob Staton

      *An awful D-line

      On this evidence

    • Big Mike

      Well said

  118. Ukhawk

    A better than average QB and a balanced but average offense is showing deficiencies in less than average Hawk defense.

    • Ukhawk

      A better than average QB and a balanced but average offense is showing deficiencies in a less than average Hawk defense.

  119. Pran

    It feels like Carr can jog around the field for full 60 min with that defense not laying a finger.

  120. 12th chuck

    the seahawks first and foremost, better get a pass rush this offseason. pathetic

    • Rob Staton

      They’ve been trying to do that since 2019

      • Hawk Finn


      • Blitzy the Clown

        It’s the curse of the Frank Clark, it is!

        *signs the evil eye*

  121. pdway

    D has really regressed these last couple games. Raiders able to do whatever they want when Carr isn’t throwing picks. Let’s see if the defensive coaches have the wherewithal to make halftime adjustments. He’s way too comfortable back there.

  122. Hawkster

    Part of the 2023 draft strategy. 49ers look like a buzz saw, so playing for a WC berth. With they may well afford an L vs LV to get them to 4 wins thinning the crowd around DEN at 3 a bit.

  123. Matthew Johnson

    I feel the percentage the Broncos hire a new OC that’s an old Seahawks OC to run their offense next year keeps climbing. Bevelle/Wilson reunion in Denver.

    • Glor

      Would Wilson allow that? Doubtful

      • Matthew Johnson

        You say that like he’ll have a day after this season. They’ll do whatever they want.

  124. AlaskaHawk

    I feel like i’m in the middle of a joke that starts with Carr saying “Hold my beer and watch this!”

  125. Bmseattle

    YAC for Lockett!!

  126. Bmseattle

    For the most part, Lucas holding up well vs Crosby

  127. pdway

    strong drive O. they’re holding up their end of things.

  128. Henry Taylor

    Great drive!

  129. Blitzy the Clown

    Inject that into my veins!

    K9 barking!

    • Big Mike

      If they gave assists in football, Abe would get one for that play.

  130. Glor

    lol wow go hawks!

  131. GoHawks5151

    I see you Big Abe!!!!!

  132. Big Mike

    Now can we PLEASE play some damned defense??!!

    • Bmseattle


  133. Bmseattle

    Isnt it officially not allowed that your offensive linemen can push your RB for 6 yards into tje endzone?
    I mean…they always allow a bit of tjat, but that seemed…excessive.

    • Spectator

      The rule has been made clear. You can’t pull, but you can push as much as you want.

  134. 12th chuck

    Wlaker needs some help. Anyone know what happened to Alex Collins?

  135. Seahawkwalt

    I’ll take credit for that … I put K9 jersey on at halftime

  136. Big Mike

    One sack
    No hurries
    In 22 dropbacks

  137. Romeo A57

    The only thing that has stopped the Raiders from having six touchdowns already is the clock and 2 bad passes by Carr

  138. Bmseattle

    Diggs closes his eyes and whiffs

  139. cha

    Quandre? What was that?

    • Big Mike

      Shit is what it was

  140. Chris

    No way we are a playoff team with this defense

  141. Bmseattle

    We are so finesse on defense.
    We need in influx of toughness

  142. KennyBadger

    Nice tackle Q. Nice tackle Barton.

  143. seaspunj

    this dee reminds me of the first few games of the season where Seahawks cant stop the run

  144. AlaskaHawk

    I really wouldn’t mind if they drafted two defensive ends, two linebackers and two safeties. Plus another big nose tackle. This defense needs help.

  145. Big Mike

    We only get to the playoffs by outscoring teams. This D has regressed right back to early season form

  146. Chris

    It might take 2 drafts to fix this defense

    • Tallyhawk

      No it just needs help on the DL. Give it a beast inside and someone who can wreak havoc outside we’re in business. Obviously there are people other needs but dl help makes this an above average D.

  147. pdway

    so frustrating….

    Caught a break when the Raiders decided not to go for it on 4th and 1 there, I would have gone for that 10 out of 10 times the way this game is going right now.

    Where is the playmaking from Nwosu or Neal, or anyone? Zero push from the D-line. Brooks the only player who seems to even be able to make a tackle.

    • Big Mike

      They’re 3-7. Why not go for it especially considering we can’t stop a nose bleed.

  148. Romeo A57

    If Rob was able to ask Pete a question after this game.

    “What can you tell us about the defensive execution after the Radiers game?”

    Pete ” I am in favor of it.”

  149. cha

    This next drive is critical. The offense needs to give the defense a little time to regroup.

    • Big Mike

      But shit man, they had halftime and our first drive to regroup. I don’t think it’ll make a difference but of course would love to be wrong.

    • cha

      And right on cue, they 3 and out.

  150. Blitzy the Clown

    What were the two high schools in that clip? I saw O’dea but not the other one

    • cha

      Eastside Catholic

      Lake Stevens vs Graham-Kapowsin

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Thanks Curtis

  151. Blitzy the Clown

    This is trending poorly

  152. Bmseattle

    Well…that was an inspiring “drive”.

  153. ShowMeYourHawk

    Run, run, pass, 4th down. Nice playcalls, Waldron….

  154. 12th chuck

    dont worry guys, the halftime adjustments for the d will kick in any minute…. just wait…. on the next drive maybe…its coming…

  155. Blitzy the Clown

    What an uninspiring set of plays to go three and out

    • AlaskaHawk

      They can’t throw to Metcalf behind the line because they are keying off Metcalf. Likewise in the end zone.

  156. Scot04

    That was ultra conservative. Looked like 1st half vrs Tampa

  157. Chris

    A total give up call there

  158. pdway

    That play Perryman made on the 2nd down Walker run, where he shot a gap and tackled him in the backfield. We get none of that from our LB’s. Brooks is a solid player, but he’s not an in the backfield playmaker.

    • Bmseattle

      No, but he’s excellent at hanging on to the RB and getting the tackle 5 yards downfield.

  159. Chris

    They could probably pull a drunk 260 liber outta the stands and he would play as good as some of our dline

    • AlaskaHawk

      It’s not just the line, they need help at all positions except cornerback.

  160. Big Mike

    Now would be a good time to force a 3 and out since they’re backed way up. A turnover would be even better. I’m not filled with confidence for either occurrence.

    • ShowMeYourHawk

      Perhaps Diggs can pick off another one, between missed tackles?

  161. Bmseattle

    Wow…that was easy

  162. Chris

    Way to telegraph the blitz

  163. Rob Staton

    This defense is embarrassing

    You’ve had two weeks!

    • Roy Batty

      When was the last time Carr was hit?

      Hell, when was the last time they truly pressured him on one drive?

      • Rob Staton

        I can’t remember the last time a Seahawks pass rusher won off the edge. Hasn’t happened today or in Germany

  164. Big Mike

    Jacobs is already over 100 and I’m expecting he’ll break off a 40 yarder soon.

  165. Chris

    It took a miscue from the raiders to get off the field

  166. Blitzy the Clown

    Lucky stop but we’ll take it

  167. Roy Batty

    Why isn’t LV just running the ball. Seattle can’t stop it.

    • Big Mike

      That’s what I was wondering. Their backup RB was ripping us too. McDaniels overthinking.

  168. Pran

    Is Raiders forcing Hawks to not play 3 safety look. Barton is a liability among D full of liabilities

  169. Big Mike

    Gift from their TE. Total gift.

  170. Hawkster

    At least alter the geometry of a pocket?

  171. pdway

    barely worth mentioning among this terrible defensive performance – but wtf happened to promising pass rusher Darrell Taylor? I mean, just absolutely invisible now.

    • Big Mike

      Pretty much all year.

    • Pran

      Guessing he is not a scheme fit if there is one anyways..

    • AlaskaHawk

      So many years of poor drafting choices and expensive free agents, or is it the coaching? Followed by one year of good drafting.

      Which will we get next year? On the surface it seems like it would be hard to screw up.

  172. Blitzy the Clown

    Decent first down play

  173. Roy Batty

    Nice. Short, tight routes to put LV on their heels, then bomb one.

    And stop running it up the middle, for Christ sakes.

    How about a play action delayed screen up the middle to Walker?

    We need an explosive play for a big team uplift to start the 4th.

  174. Big Mike

    Geno had Parkinson wide open another 15 yds downfield from DK on that first down play. Too much focus on DK imo.

    • Bmseattle

      I thought it looked like he had deeper routes developing.
      I wonder why he didnt take it?

    • pdway

      i’m ok w all the short throws to DK – he’s a battering ram, feels like our version of a big RB in a way

  175. Bmseattle

    When was the last time we even attempted a go route to DK?
    I mean, 40+ yards?
    Is it that easy to juat erase that aspect of our offense?

    • Hawks4life

      Geno can’t throw a deep ball, we need a QB who can use DK the way he should be used. Sign me up for Levis or Richardson

      • AlaskaHawk

        I’m calling baloney on that one. Geno has all the throws.

        • pdway

          Geno’s arm not the problem

        • Bmseattle

          I agree…Geno has the arm to throw it deep.
          We’ve just been running short routes to DK…which is fine, except the threat of him going deep should still be a part of the offense

      • Roy Batty

        I guess you missed the dime to Lockett for a TD.

        • Hawks4life

          Obviously Geno can throw the ball down field but I’d bet no team is worried all to much about being beat that way by him. I would love to have some supreme arm talent at the QB position

  176. Roy Batty


  177. pdway

    let Geno cook!

  178. Bmseattle

    Blythe 😬

    • Pran

      Huge liability

  179. Hawkster

    Goodwin always seems to show up in the 4th and make a tough catch for 20

  180. Chris

    Are we telegraphing our run plays?

    • Big Mike

      Or is our run blocking just crap?

      • Roy Batty

        Honest question: when was the last time you saw the Hawks get a good push up the middle?

        The defenders have heat to be pushed back a single yard.

  181. Big Mike

    No Ken, you can’t do that in the NFL

    Nice blocking

  182. Blitzy the Clown

    Wow that was a nice throw on the move by Geno

    Excellent touch

    • Big Mike

      Outstanding off script play

  183. Kyle R

    I don’t care what the scheme says. We need some more blu chippers on the interior line to really truly be the bullies again in the run game.

  184. Roy Batty

    And the shitshow re-emerges.

    • pdway

      man, terrible timing for that to happen. crap

  185. Blitzy the Clown

    JFC I can’t…

  186. Big Mike


  187. Henry Taylor

    I said earlier, this game has been all the way amazing or terrible

    • Peppapig

      Qb or DL first pick? My brain hurts.

  188. ShowMeYourHawk

    THERE’S Geno reverting to Autumn Pumpkin status.

  189. Peppapig

    What the f@ck!

  190. Big Mike

    Not sure Walker knew the play

  191. Robbie

    OH for F sakes…..just hand it off Geno. Trying to pull it back to run

    • Rob Staton

      Too many avoidable Geno turnovers or near turnovers

    • Pran

      That’s a communication gap. Walker was not expecting to keep the ball.

  192. Chris

    Our defense is bad ,but it’s real bad on sudden changes

  193. 12th chuck

    welcome to Pete ball, last 30 seconds decides the game

  194. Big Mike

    Boy could we use a D stop now.

  195. Chris

    Don’t hold your breath

  196. Roy Batty

    The way LV has been running the ball, they could bleed 9 minutes off the clock and get a TD to pretty much ice it.

  197. GoHawks5151

    Walker got some things to work on. He passes up 3-4 yard gains for big plays to often. You can see Homer stick up in there and get what’s there. Hunting big plays instead of letting them come to him

  198. Hawkster

    the comparative position of first contact in the running game is atrocious

    • pdway


    • Blitzy the Clown

      5 yards downfield from the LOS and the player making first contact is an interior DL.

      Where are the LBs and safeties?

  199. Big Mike

    Can we not have a former Ram on the broadcast please?

  200. Blitzy the Clown

    Nothing like letting a 2nd and 10 become a 3 and 1

  201. pdway

    man, if the roles were reversed and the Hawks called a pitch play like that on 4th and inches w the way they’ve been running it up the gut all day….I’d be typing in ALL CAPS

  202. Henry Taylor


  203. Kyle R

    Stupid play call and huge stop D!!!

  204. Roy Batty

    Good god what is LV doing?

    That’s a gimme sneak, or use Jacobs, the guy who has been walking his way to first downs.

  205. Chris

    Huge stop!

  206. Hawkster

    B b b Barton?

  207. Peppapig


  208. Blitzy the Clown

    Great stop. Horrible call by the Raiders

    Should’ve sneaked Carr it up the gut

  209. Romeo A57

    McDaniels got too cute. Big stop!

    • Pran

      Can’t believe he didn’t call QB sneak with all the calls for Brady over the years

  210. Big Mike

    What an horrible play call. We’ll take it

  211. Robbie

    Good stop! Now do something with it!

    • Big Mike

      This, this and yes, THIS!!

  212. Matt

    That play call is a fireable offense.

    I literally cannot understand that.

  213. AlaskaHawk

    Hmm seems like some issues on both sides of the line.

    But thank you for the defensive stop.

  214. Roy Batty

    Please go back to quick routes. The Oline is not holding up for long routes at this point.

  215. Peppapig

    This is like a Kingdome game with Kreig and Co.

  216. Kenny Sloth

    Cody Barton quietly having a very good game. Hope he gets his flowers from fans

  217. AlaskaHawk

    Okay time to take over! Go Seahawks!

  218. Big Mike

    So is Walker sitting cuz he screwed up?

    • Big Mike

      Guess not

  219. Roy Batty

    Here’s the power of having a true 3rd WR.

  220. Blitzy the Clown

    Man this Raiders run d is all over us

  221. Hawks4life

    What a play call that was!!!

  222. Big Mike

    That’s a play Eskridge doesn’t make

  223. pdway

    let’s gooooooo!

  224. Roy Batty

    Tell me they aren’t re-signing Homer next year?

    The guy just produces.

  225. AlaskaHawk

    OMG HOmer for the touchdown! Yee hAW They have had a lot of success with that roll out and pass on the right side.

  226. Big Mike

    Fantastic playcall Shane!

    • AlaskaHawk

      Homer reminds me of the little guy that is an over achiever. Some how he gets it done.

  227. Blitzy the Clown

    Yes! Homer won’t be denied!

  228. pdway

    real nice play call there by Waldron too

  229. Hawkster

    that was a smart play

  230. Matt

    That playcall…my God.

    This is why I’m almost leaning on if Geno wants $30M; I might just go after Brissett. Waldron has been masterful with this stuff.

  231. cha

    Come on, Homer! Come on, Homer! Pretend this is baseball and hit us a homer!

    • Blitzy the Clown

      And guys, rhyming “homer” with “homer”…*chef’s kiss*

  232. Blitzy the Clown

    That was a huge drive and score for us

  233. pdway

    OK, officially sick of Archuleta now…..

  234. Chris

    Geno deserves a contract with the hawks

  235. pdway

    come on, one more pick Carr…..

  236. Roy Batty

    Dear god what an effig catch!

    • Big Mike

      Man you are way ahead of me 🙁

  237. Roy Batty

    So Jackson is now reverting to Trey Flowers 15 yard cushopion.

    • Big Mike

      And tackling like crap

  238. Hawkster

    Barton is not an effective blitzer

  239. Rob Staton

    This defense man

  240. cha

    Suggestion borne from frustration. Why not drop all eleven and try to confuse Carr? That might be more effective.

  241. Roy Batty

    If they win this challenge…just, wow!

  242. Blitzy the Clown

    That’s a fumble

    • Blitzy the Clown


  243. Chris

    That’s a fumble! We will get screwed though

  244. Big Mike

    in early season form

  245. Robbie


  246. Henry Taylor

    That was clearly a fumble

    • Big Mike

      More shit NFL officiating

      • seaspunj

        100% agreed

  247. pdway

    i mean, forward progress stopped w the way he’s been finishing runs today? Give me a break….

    • Big Mike

      They blew the whistle too soon so had to cover their asses by calling that.

  248. seaspunj

    Seahawks got robbed of a fumble

  249. Big Mike

    SCREW YOU Staratore!!

  250. Roy Batty

    This has been a very entertaining game. In no way perfect, but in no way boring.

    Not one second.

    • pdway

      but STRESSFUL…..

  251. Chris

    Those calls always seem to go against us

    • Matt

      Bad day in general. We got gifted a first down on that 3rd down pass. Never ceases to amaze me how bad officiating can be.

  252. Roy Batty

    OK, Geno.

    You wanna be The Man? You want a big contract?

    Win it with this drive.

    • Big Mike


  253. Big Mike

    That TD is on SHIT officiating

  254. Blitzy the Clown


  255. pdway

    putting it all on our offense’s back. been that way the whole game today.

  256. Robbie

    Time for Geno to show us what he’s made of!

  257. cha

    “Without any pressure on the quarterback, that is not a good coverage to play.”

    The story of this game, Adam.

  258. Peppapig

    Diggs needs to take that money belt off.

  259. Chris

    Pete has a boner right now

  260. KD

    We’re going to OT against the damn Raiders, aren’t we?

  261. Blitzy the Clown

    C’mon Goodwin don’t be giving me cardiac iddues

    • Blitzy the Clown


  262. Big Mike

    Oh look a chance for another referee screwing

  263. Chris

    We will get screwed again

    • Big Mike


  264. Hawkster

    solid blitz beat

  265. Big Mike

    “DJ Metcalf” piss of Steratore. You’re a joke

  266. pdway

    he had his hands under that

    • pdway

      and made more maddening w us not getting any frame-by-frame review on that fumble.

  267. Big Mike

    The announcers have gotten the call from New York so they can tell us why we’re going to get screwed

  268. Roy Batty

    Great, Seattle has them on their heels and the refs take 10 minutes to cool them down.

    What a joke.

  269. Bmseattle

    Take tour tomw refs…gotta get this play right!🙄

  270. Chris

    They are trying hard to overturn this

    • Big Mike

      Go fuck yourselves NFL

  271. ShowMeYourHawk

    Why not just call it “forward progress,” asshats? Seemed pretty okay with not reviewing the Jacobs fumble.

    • pdway


  272. Robbie

    This is a flipping catch why is this taking so dang long

  273. Blitzy the Clown

    They screwed us

    • Big Mike

      twice now

  274. Robbie

    Ok now I’m for real pissed!

  275. Roy Batty

    Lucas just shit the bed.

  276. Hawkster

    the bobble as he rolls over is gonna kills this one.

    • Matt

      Once they showed that angle – game over on that play. It was the right call, especially considering he was rolling OOB.

  277. Bmseattle


    • Bmseattle

      Crosby was nice and rested after that lengthy review, i guess

  278. Blitzy the Clown

    Crosby >> Lucas

  279. Chris

    Plenty of time for the raiders

  280. Kyle R

    Are we in the Super Bowl against the Steelers? First the bullshit fumble non call and then this stupid catch bullshit!

    • Big Mike

      Just another example of New York/the NFL steering results

      • GoHawksDani

        Did the refs denied the Hawks DL to rush the passer? Or the OL to runblock? Or K9 to hit the holes quick? Or Geno to play well in H1?
        This should’ve been a 24-14 game. Hawks sh.t the bed again and the refs have very little to do with it

  281. pdway

    i can’t believe they ran out the clock there…..

    OK, I guess

  282. Roy Batty

    LV can just rush the Hawks to death in OT, so the Hawks better win the toss.

    • Roy Batty

      Well, shit…

  283. Blitzy the Clown

    OT at home

    Pete’s favorite scenario

  284. AlaskaHawk

    Hmm well this is deflating. Seahawks need to find some more energy!

  285. 12th chuck

    seahawks don’t deserve to win

  286. Chris

    Not ideal

  287. Blitzy the Clown

    I said before the game I hope they cover the RT with a TE in obvious passing situations to help out. There’s not really a RT who can handle Crosby 1v1 for an entire game.

    Wish they had done that

  288. Big Mike

    If we lose it’s on the NFL and it’s officials.

  289. Old but Slow

    Draft priority: QB, DT, DT, DT, LB.

    • GoHawksDani

      + C, OG, RB, DE

  290. ShowMeYourHawk

    I’ve no confidence in the D’s ability to stop a slow death match up the field. An errant pass for an INT is our best bet.

  291. Bmseattle

    Even when we play decent run defense, they get 5 yards

  292. KD

    This would be a fine time for a Woolen pick6

  293. Blitzy the Clown

    Runner’s met at the LOS but the play goes for 5 yards.

    This is no way to play defense

  294. Big Mike

    OK 3rd and a stop…………must be time for a defensive holding penalty

  295. Chris

    All damn day to throw

  296. Bmseattle

    Taylor is crap.

  297. Big Mike


  298. Blitzy the Clown

    I’m bout to lose something over here

  299. Robbie

    Rushing 4 does not work, 3rd and 5 send another guy. UGH

  300. Chris

    Yeah but they send Barton which is worthless

    • Robbie

      He’s useless in coverage as well

  301. Blitzy the Clown

    Excellent play! Shelby Harris comes through

  302. Roy Batty

    Crap, Neal looks injured bad.

    Really hurting on the ground.

    • Big Mike

      Damn it.

      Josh Jones next man up and he ain’t Neal. Would be a bad loss for an already poor defense.

      • Blitzy the Clown

        JL Skinner please

  303. Chris

    Great, our 2nd best defender is down

  304. ShowMeYourHawk

    Uh oh. Neal down. If he’s out for a while, the middle of the field is even more of a freeway.

  305. 206

    Shelby got away with a hands to the face there, but I’ll take it!

  306. Roy Batty

    And the law of averages brings Carlson back down to Earth!

  307. Robbie


  308. Blitzy the Clown


  309. Chris

    Weird shit happens in this stadium

  310. Big Mike

    Now take advantage Hawks!

  311. AlaskaHawk

    Whoo Hoo, lucked out on the field goal fail. And getting great field position.

  312. pdway

    run blocking is depressing

  313. Roy Batty

    So, run it up the gut, huh?


  314. Matt

    McDaniels shouldn’t have a job at yet this. Some of the most appalling decisions and ply calls I’ve seen.

  315. Big Mike

    Can we get a 5 minute review on that please

  316. Chris

    We can’t move people on the line

  317. Roy Batty

    Lucas just getting owned by Crosby.

  318. pdway

    jesus, Crosby absolutely destroying us

  319. Chris

    Lucas getting owned

  320. ShowMeYourHawk

    Lucas ain’t it today, kids.

  321. pdway

    i would have thought hard about going for it on that 4th and 5

    • 509 Chris


  322. Blitzy the Clown

    That’s right, don’t learn anything.

    Keep daring Crosby to beat your rookie RT


  323. Bmseattle

    Just refuse to help Lucas, i guess.

  324. Big Mike

    Abe has had a very bad day unfortunately

    • TomLPDX

      Yeah, pretty bad.

  325. Roy Batty

    Hahahahaha, what a way to lose…just unreal how badly this defense played.

  326. Blitzy the Clown

    Hey if we hold to a tie, that still puts Denver’s pick ahead of LV, right?

  327. 509 Chris

    I’m so tired of midfield punts. Punt Carroll strikes again.

  328. Hawks4life

    We didn’t lose because the refs we lost because our defense is garbage

  329. Peppapig

    That was embarrassing,

  330. Chris

    The worst possible way to lose

  331. Blitzy the Clown


    What a joke!

    • Roy Batty

      On a bright note, this team that wouldn’t stand a chance in the playoffs just moved up the draft board with a loss and LV win.

  332. TomLPDX

    Seahawks of old. They sucked today

  333. Pran

    OL shitting the bed to go with D

  334. seaspunj

    what a punch to the gut

    sadly the Seahawks shot themselves in the foot

  335. Romeo A57

    The 4th Quarter and OT of this game are showing the offensive weaknesses of this team. We rail on about the defense being bad but don’t forget about the IOL needs an upgrade.

  336. ShowMeYourHawk

    Bye bye NFC West. Maybe Hurtt should gear up next week and sit his fat ass in the lane. Can’t be a worse option than whatever the current plan is.

  337. Big Mike

    This loss is courtesy of the National Football League

    Fuck you NFL

    • 509 Chris

      Ya 5 minutes to overturn that catch? What the hell was that?

  338. KennyBadger

    Wtf man…

  339. Chris

    Goodbye playoffs

  340. AlaskaHawk

    I hate to say this but I feel like the Seahawks deserve it for the way the defense played. Yes a few good plays, but not enough to make up for being unable to rush the quarterback and Jacobs getting over 200 yards rushing. It just sucks.

  341. Feindt

    Finishing the Game in style

  342. Blitzy the Clown

    No stoutness inside on both sides of the LOS

    That’s what lost us this game

  343. Peppapig

    Defense first pick I’m guessing.

  344. Kaesotullius

    Second week in a row that the Dline has been handled

  345. dragonhawk

    Hope the Donkeys give us a top 5 pick to get us a pass rusher

    • dragonhawk

      And get us a center/DL and another bruiser RB

  346. 509 Chris

    We’ve known linebacker is a weakness on this team for a while. Gotta fix this run D. I’m not sure what can be done mid-season though.

  347. GoHawksDani

    Omg, what an idiotic decision not to help Lucas…that could work for a screen maybe but nothing else.
    And punting on 4&5 with like 4,5min left is like rolling on their back and giving up. The way the LV rungame went and their OL blocked, best case scenario there is to finish with a tie with time running out.
    That run at the end is the sum of this whole game. “Cherry on top” that Neal might be injured bad who was one of the better D# players out there.

    I don’t see a division winner here for sure. And I also can’t see a playoff contender. And really hard to see even a Wild Card team. So I hope they’ll lose as much as they can alongside with the Broncos and we might have a #3-4-5 and #13-15 pick. Get Carter/Anderson and Kancey/Smith and get this defense to a better shape

  348. Kyle R

    We really need to focus on the trenches in the draft and off season if we want to be the bullies again and dictate terms in the game.

  349. Pran

    They had multiple opportunities to close the game and failed. Offense has not score in the last 2min of a game all season which tells all about Shane, Geno and Offense.
