I have a new weekly segment on KJR with Puck & Jim

Big news today — I’m delighted to say that I’ll be joining the excellent Puck & Jim every Wednesday at 12pm PT to talk about the Seahawks on 93.3 KJR. Big thanks to Superior Linen for making it possible. You can hear the first segment below, please check it out and be sure to tune in every week!


  1. Nick

    One step closer to being GM of the Seahawks, mate. Congrats!

    • Rob Staton


      I’d settle for being GM in my own house. My seven-year-old daughter is also eyeing the role, though

      • 805Hawk

        I’m basically the towel boy at this point. Wife is the owner. 16 year old daughter is the HC. 13 year old son is the OC and my dog is the diva WR.

        • London Seahawk

          LOL love this

      • Elmer

        In our family we have two Cavaliers. They compete to see who is running things.

        Congratulations on the weekly segment!

  2. Rob Staton

    Good Chop Robinson interview here:


    • Rob Staton

      And superb from Jared Verse here, so engaging and charismatic:


      A++++++++++ character

      • Blackthorn

        Oh man, these interviews are great! Verse and Robinson are both VERY easy to root for!

        Great job with Puck and Jim too. How cool!

  3. KennyBadger

    Congratulations to you Rob on a very well-deserved spot! May your reason and sanity spread through the fan base like wildfire.

    • Rob Staton

      Thank you!

    • Sea Mode

      +1 !!!

  4. ShowMeYourHawk

    Congrats, Rob! Your dedication to this blog and us as a community is paying off! As your profile gets larger, the detractors will only get louder but we got you, dude!

    • Rob Staton

      Thank you 👏

  5. Z$

    Fantastic spot and thrilled this will be a weekly segment. Thoroughly deserved.

    • Rob Staton

      Thank you!

  6. Pran

    Congrats Rob

    • Rob Staton


  7. Thor

    Well done Rob — diligent scouting work combined with good, thoughtful eloquently expressed opinions pays off

    • Rob Staton

      Thank you!

  8. bbhawkstan

    Huge news!!! Love this site and appreciate the work you put in, Rob. Absolutely love that you’re getting more exposure. Crush it!!

    • Rob Staton

      Thank you!

  9. Hawktalker#1

    Outstanding work!,,

    • Rob Staton


  10. Lawdog001

    This is awesome news! It’s a huge mystery to me why this hasn’t happened sooner. Haven’t always agreed with you but truly appreciate your dedication and passion. Congrats Rob!

    • Rob Staton

      Thank you!

  11. Group Captain Mandrake

    To quote Freddie Ljungberg: “That’s fuckin’ excellent!” Congrats, man. You deserve it.

    • Rob Staton


  12. PangS

    Congrats, Rob! You deserve it.

    Been following you since 2012.

    • Rob Staton

      Appreciate it!

  13. Wilson502

    So glad to hear you are getting a regular segment on KJR. The fanbase is in dire need of frequent exposure from somebody in media who tells it like it is and doesn’t provide the usual braindead “homer” takes like what you hear on 710.

    • Rob Staton

      Thanks — I hope I can deliver that!

      • Mike

        Well deserved, now if only I can get kjr in Canuck country…

        • Peter

          I heart radio, apple, and Spotify all carry a few hours after air time. Plus kjr’s site.

  14. Mark

    That’s wonderful news, Rob, and well deserved! Looking forward to listening to the segment.

  15. Palatypus


    And speaking of moving up in the world, I wonder what the next career move would be for Jim Nagy after pulling off the logistical nightmare that was the 75th Anniversary Senior Bowl.


    Such great news! Congrats Rob!

    • Rob Staton

      Thank you!

  17. Demitrov

    Nice to see you getting the recognition you deserve. You deserve it.

    • Rob Staton


  18. RomeoA57

    Will be looking forward to Wednesday’s at 12PM now:)

    I saw that the Jets are allowing Zach Wilson to seek trade offers. I wonder if the Jets would want Jamal Adams back? Jamal Adams for Zach Wilson straight up sounds like a fair deal to me.

    Seriously though, what could possibly be the trade marker for Zach Wilson?


    • BK26

      A 6th round pick. As in, the Jets will give you a 6th to take him.

      • RomeoA57

        BK26- that is ridiculous, they would not throw in anything higher than a 7th Round pick and a signed Aaron Rodgers Jockstrap to just take him off their hands 🙂

        • BK26

          Aaron Rodgers would probably be handing his jock straps out himself, saying they are how he gets over the flu every year…hahaha.

  19. Rob Staton

    Appreciate all the kind words — thank you for your support, I know a lot of you have been here a long time and it means a lot to me 👍

    • Turp

      Reading since you started in 2008, and while you’ve always been excellent, it’s been very enjoyable to see your writing evolve into 10,000 word masterpieces and brilliant takes over the years. I hope this is just the beginning for you. Congratulations, Rob!

  20. Cysco

    Well deserved brother! Just don’t forget about us when you’re hosting draft coverage on ESPN or NFL Network someday.

  21. James Z

    Truly stoked to hear that for you, Rob! Do you get free linen service as a perk…

  22. Palatypus

    Not being able to say the W word in the British media has me fascinated. According to Wiktionary, these are synonyms: tosser, whacker, knobber, and tosspot. Are any of those acceptable?

    • Rob Staton

      Tosser is well used (and also unacceptable on air). The others not so much. ‘Nobber’ also means something different, that’s generally what you’d call someone you thought was a d**k head but it’s a more jokey, matey kind of term

      • Palatypus

        Can you tell someone to toss in their chamber pot?

        • Palatypus

          Cornhole is a tailgating tradition. Can you say “Tossed off in a cornhole”?

    • Sneekes

      Haven’t heard ‘Tosspot’ in ages, but it was quite common in the UK in the 80s

  23. JJ

    Rob, I have been reading this blog forever. I think before Pete was coach. I had a weird moment where my dad (78 years old) said he was listening to puck and this British guy was talking about the hawks. He says he went to the blog and has never seen so much info about the draft. I have been telling him about this site for at least a decade. I guess he just needed the British accent to persuade him.

    • Rob Staton

      Thanks JJ, I love that!

  24. Peter

    Man I’m going ro miss this place when Rob moves on!!

    This is such a great spot to have on air. Congrats!!!

  25. Canadian Hawk

    Congrats Rob and well deserved.

  26. Palatypus


    Senior Bowl is being replayed on NFLN now with a Senior Bowl recap show directly following.

  27. Jo

    Rob, well deserved. I live in KCMO so I see up close why you need an excellent coach and GM and stop at nothing to try and get a top tier quarterback.
    For the last 10 years you are the main reason I’m still a Seahawks fan given I’m not only out of market but literally at the epicenter of Chiefs Kingdom. But you have always given me hope that we will be on top again if we are smart and have a plan unlike Pete since at least 2017.

  28. Phil

    Congratulations Rob! Long time lurker, first time comment: Glad to see the recognition of your hard work and sustained effort. Best wishes for continued success.

  29. Alex Potts

    An idea just hit me… What if the Seahawks already have a draft day trade worked out with Pittsburgh?

    Imagine this:

    Pittsburgh sends pick No. 51
    and Seattle sends pick No. 78 and Geno Smith

    Pittsburgh is cap strapped so no chance with Kirk Cousins/Baker Mayfield. They reportedly are not interested in Justin Fields. Unless they want Russell Wilson, who…. let’s be honest, doesn’t fit with the Steelers culture, they could look to Geno as their best option to “Win now”. They have a good team but their current QB’s have held them back.

    It would explain:

    1) Why you re-structure Geno… Making it easier for PIT to acquire with their cap situation
    2) Why they have been so damn vague about Geno Smith. If you knew you had a deal set up, lying would be a little more uncomfortable for 2 Christian men in Schneider/Macdonald. It looks like they are fudging, being cagey, holding back or just not being 100% truthful.

    I would think if Penix lasts to Pittsburgh’s pick in the second round, we could see a trade with Seattle. No way they just give us their 2 for Geno Smith, BUT, a pick swap??? I could see it.

    • DJ 1/2 way

      That seems well reasoned and reasonable. I like the possibility. It would be great to see Geno win and I would prefer that happen in the AFC. Also, getting a second round pick in any draft is great. I would take next years as well. It always seems like I want more second round picks.

    • Palatypus

      I think this is way off the mark. Because Sean Payton is completely undisciplined in press conferences, we pretty much know Russell Wilson is going to get cut. Nobody is going to trade for him. So, Denver eats $39 million In dead money and maneuvers from there. This is their Jamal Adams/Quandre Diggs move. Brandon Perna/That’s Good Sports went over this.

      It’s an ugly divorce.

      THEN, guaranteed $39 million, Russ can sign with whoever he wants for the NFL minimum. I’m betting on the Raiders.

      • Palatypus

        Oh, forgot, but maybe the $hit$burh $tealer$ because Russell Wilson owned them in our games head-to-head, unlike Matt Hasselbeck.

  30. Spencer

    I just don’t get why they did the restructure before a trade being practically locked in, like it’s one of the conditions of the trade. Otherwise you lose just leverage. Telling teams you can do it for them it’s one thing, but preemptively doing it seems dumb.

    • BK26

      Because now they can ask for a better pick. A team that is trading for him doesn’t have to pay him this much this season.

      • Spencer

        Yeah, as part of negotiations. But it doesn’t seem like a trade is on the table. They can’t take it back now and so they just lost that bargaining chip in a potential negotiation. Do you see what I’m saying?

  31. Adam Boyd

    So glad this finally happened and it’s a sponsored segment, congratulations Rob!

  32. Thomas


  33. pdway

    Congrats to you – cool to see hard work and hustle paying off!

  34. ActionBoss

    Congratulations Rob! So well deserved. While we know it’s overdue I hope it is just more to come.

  35. Tomas

    Sincere congrats, Rob, I can well imagine your career really taking off here in the colonies – your radio appearances are a gas, as is your chemistry with the hosts. I’ll look forward to each week’s radio appearance.

  36. GoHawks5151

    This one is the day I have dreaded… Secrets out on Rob. Can’t keep him to ourselves. Please keep writing the blog after you blow up! Congrats dude

  37. SeattleLifer

    Congratulations sir, well deserved both for your running Seahawks knowledge and your great communication skills/savvy on air, thumbs way up!

  38. DJ 1/2 way

    As a long time Seattle sports radio listener I got to say that this is both the right time and the right show. There are only a few moments each day that make listening to KIRO 710 worth it. (mostly Shannon drayer and coach interviews on the morning show)

    KRJ is ruling the airwaves in terms of quality content and they are doing it with a good variety of hosts. Puck and Jim are the least serious and most enjoyable to listen to. They do not GAF about the rules and both are true fans just like us.

  39. Forrest

    Congrats, Rob! I’ll be listening to more KJR now. …and thanks for posting the link to Superior Linen. I hadn’t heard of them before, but I’ll do anything I can to support their business.

  40. seaspunj

    congratulations Rob

    you have earned and put in the hard work that your talents are heard and officially heard on KJR!

    SUPER happy with your insight and influence over the radio waves in Seahawk nation

    KJR’s platform is an amazing opportunity and i am 100% certain you will knock it out of the park!

  41. UkAlex6674

    Well done Rob. Totally deserved.

  42. UkAlex6674

    He’s one of our own
    He’s one of our own
    Rob Staton
    He’s one of our own

  43. JimN

    You were just excellent Rob! This is well deserved and i suspect will increase. No one can disect a situation as well as you with different outcomes and strategies that allow us to discuss it !

  44. Brodie

    Bummer. I just heard Caleb and Drake won’t be throwing at the combine. With Marvin Harrison skipping it entirely, the NFL needs to switch things up.

    Start earlier, get the tee done by 5pm and maybe incentivize the players.

    • Brodie

      Tee? Tests – ie measurables

  45. Ukhawk

    Amazing! Congrats Rob, well deserved!!

    So glad the best Seahawks prognosticator has finally hit the local airwaves.

    • Ukhawk

      …and don’t listen for one minute to the hater w*nkers or t*ssers in the alternate reality fanbase 🤣

      • Rob Staton

        Thanks pal — honestly, the positive feedback means the world. Sometimes I read the negative comments elsewhere and you’d think I’d committed a heinous crime, the way some people talk. So all of the nice messages are really appreciated. The amount of time that goes into this is, well, crazy. So the fact that people get something out of it and are really supportive of the blog, means so much 👍

  46. Mick

    Well deserved Rob, and it’s nice to have an actual journalist on the radio for a change.

  47. sonicreducer

    Wow Rob! Excited for you, so well deserved! Hopefully this is just the start of even bigger and better things to come.

  48. Dean Sawyer

    Congrats well deserved.

  49. Big Mike

    Yet another reason for those of you in market to listen to KJR instead of 710. I mean on the one hand you have Rob, a serious journalist with well thought out takes and opinions on the Seahawks and on the other you have boot lickers, hyperbolic manure spreaders and well, Dave Wyman. I just don’t see much of contest.

  50. Sparky

    Congrats man! You’re an engaging listen!

    I actually like listening to others like Stacy and Corbin, but its been a bit maddening as of late hearing them interpret “hes a starter till hes not” as a ringing endorsement. Just have absolute no idea how they get there. Good to have some sanity on the airwaves.

    • Rob Staton

      That’s what I don’t understand

      By all means have the opinion that you really rate Geno Smith, believe he should be seen as the quote/unquote franchise quarterback or whatever

      But what’s with the need to try and bend everything to fit a narrative you seem to want to create?

      Where’s the curiosity? It’s not ‘nothing’ they keep speaking this way whenever they’re asked about Geno Smith

      Where are the learnt lessons from the Wilson trade saga that everyone said was a load of hot air?

      • Sparky


      • Brodie

        Seriously. Corbin on in’s pod was saying the reason Johns answers sounded weird was because the questions were worded poorly.

        “Is Geno Smith the QB now? NOW? (Overly emphasizing the word)… so of course John is going to say ‘ya, he’s the QB now, until he isn’t’”

        He frames that nonsense as something he’s had to learn as a reporter over the years that we non-media types wouldn’t know.

        Never mind the way it was ‘framed’ in the next freaking interview: ‘Is Geno QB1?’

        Answer: Geno’s been with us for two years.

        Ya guys. Nothing to see here.

        • Brodie

          It’s just such simple thinking. No sense of how a move could be one in a larger plan. Each move is in a vacuum where tit for tat immediate improvement or status quo is the overriding focus.

          ‘Who can you get that’s better than Geno right now? Cousins?”

          As Andy Duphrene would say:

          Why are you being so obtuse?

        • Rob Staton

          Well, I’ve been a journalist a long, long time

          And the only bit of advice I’d ever give anyone is never stop being curious

    • LouCityHawk

      I respect that Corbin works hard, and I think his heart is in the right place.

      He is starting to remind me of the character Captain Queeg, he has lost the narrative thread.

  51. LouCityHawk

    Congrats are in order, but really, this feels like another giveaway to Seahawks fans.

    Pardon me a minute, I’ll try to keep this succinct.

    As a fan from an era where walking into a store in Seattle the Cowboys and 9ers paraphernalia might outnumber the local Seahawks, where I could count on making instant friends with the only other Seahawks fan at a bar in Boston or Jackson – to live to hear a fan of the Seahawks from the UK rise to a level where they have a regular spot on local radio almost feels like a dream.

    I never dreamt of multiple super bowls in a decade – I dreamt of the Seahawks being relevant, relevant in every conversation, important enough that they are mentioned in every conversation. Being able to walk into a jersey store anywhere and finding at least some Seahawks swag.

    To me, the ultimate litmus test was the idea that I could be anywhere in the world, and the simple fact of a shared Fandom wouldn’t mean that I had found a new friend. That there would be enough local fans anywhere that a throwback Largent Jersey wasn’t cause to yell out an American style greeting from 100 feet away.

    A guy from England came with his girlfriend to Canada, fell in love with the Seahawks, started writing a blog with a global following, and now he is on the local radio in a regular spot talking about the Seahawks.

    So excuse a long time Seahawk fan feeling a bit of a personal win. That it is a voice that I value as part of the Seahawks fan discourse makes it all the more sweet.

  52. d

    congrats rob! its good to see your hard work paying dividends! Looking forward to adding this to my weekly listens.

  53. Brodie

    Very excited for you Rob! You are incredibly good at what you do and it’s high time someone else in Seattle made your appearances a regular thing.

    I was listening to a long-time national media member talking about Peter King and what made him so special. He said of course his discipline. To write his 10k word piece every week no matter what. Despite the fact that he was always traveling & routinely up until 4 or 5 am on Monday to get it out. His passion for the game coming through in his work was another. My favorite was regarding his curiosity. King was always curious about everything. Always digging, discussing, trying to learn the why of things. Never making assumptions and digging in. Willing to explore all avenues especially those off the beaten path. His great bit at at the end of his column was called “10 things I think I think’ not 10 things I know or even 10 things I think I know.

    You have that curiosity, passion and discipline as well and we are a grateful group that has you as part of our fandom. Looking forward to becoming a KJR regular at noon on Wednesday’s. Just wish I had need of a linen service to support your sponsor!


    • Rob Staton

      Thank you Brodie — that’s one of my favourite messages I’ve ever received. It means a lot

      • Brodie

        My pleasure. Sincere and well-earned praise.

        *Insert Gatsby gif here*

  54. Matty B

    1) This is awesome. The more exposure you get…The happier I get.
    2). No idea why I can’t figure it out, but what is “W******”?
