Live stream with Jeff Simmons (1:30pm PT)

    A broadcast done so perfectly well, nobody has a comment.

    El Fin.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      We all just wanna know what kind of liquor store robber you’re going as for Halloween this year

      My money’s on Drew Rosenhaus’s urine soaked hand

      • Palatypus

        The hand and the one-eyed monster of Vecna.

        Speaking of dungeon modules, what village does Rob live in exactly? Homlett?

        • Group Captain Mandrake

          Seems like a ravenloft kind of guy.

          • Palatypus

            Nope, my season tickets were in the Hawks Nest back in the day.

    • Peter

      It’s hard. A bye week after a monster game might be worse than after a terrible game.

      Initial thoughts?

      Got to get a qb in the draft. And one primed for a real start. Thought it would be nice to do the alex smith thing…..geno ain’t it right now.

      I’ve listened to Jeff a few times and the easy answer is “oline,” problems.

      He’s not wrong but I don’t think it’s altogether right.

      Have doubts? Go check out the 2020 “cook,” roster. Most of that roster is garbage.

      I don’t know. I need a BIG uptick in performance our I’d let geno walk. Pay drew and have he and a rookie duel it out. Right now Geno is playing like a guy you’d be stoked if they were making third round rookie money. Forget his escalators. 30 odd million for 3500 ish yards and 22 tds? Pass.

      • LouCityHawk

        I always forget about Jeff Simmons, I feel like I used to read his articles a long time ago.

        He is interesting, I remembered, because he tends to have opposite takes from me.

        I’ve been pretty vocal about Geno needing to take another step, which I think he has in him. If he doesn’t? Sign a cheap journeyman in the offseason as a placeholder

        • Peter

          Though it might seem like I knock the seagawks universe I actually enjoy most of them.

          I think Jeff is fairly well reasoned. He’s higher on some players than I am. Cross, jsn, adams. But will be fairly quick to suggest they may not be playing up to their billing.

          I listen to Corbin/Rang a lot. Very different takes than I would have but it’s good to get different viewpoints. Most of the hawkblogger crew I enjoy. Again different takes but it doesn’t hurt me to hear them.

          About the only takes I can’t handle daily is the Seattle 710 crew. I don’t know who does their daily talking points but to hear them tell it Pete is the mayor of Seattle and John is the head of the city council.

          • LouCityHawk

            Rang and MSD are two of my favorites. I like Corbin’s analysis, but he can get on my nerves.

            I feel like Jeff Simmons used to write for a paper or another site before Hawkblogger. It is bugging me now, going to blame long Covid.

          • BK26

            I…have moved on from about everyone else. Jeff I usually agree with. Worst case, if I don’t agree with his takes, how he presents it is more “this is what I think” than “this is what I say and it is right.” I’ve always enjoyed listening to Jeff.

            Hawkbloggers turned into too much of a generic fan take on everything. And you can’t have a differing opinion than them.

            Corbin and Rang are way too much in the view of “the team is perfect and they do no wrong.”

            There is just no one else besides us here that looks at a big picture, multi-year view and sees possible issues. It it too much “this team is perfect, shut up!”

            • Peter

              You’re not wrong on most of this.

              One thing, of the many, that I like here is that there’s no need just to make content. In the seahawks sphere there gets to be tons of similar takes:

              1. Kyu blu….cb of the future

              2. And I can not even recall the name of the LB they picked up but my youtube feed was filled with how this fifth round cast off was secretly the next big thing with inside LB’s

              The other voices can be a little over the top thinking everything is great, excuse making, or in the case of some using things like PFF grades when it suits you but sweeping them under a rug when it doesnt….Adams particularly.

              Plus that world tends to think he’s still this All pro badass….and never seems to think that paying him ( currently,) like a top 10 defender at any position ( bigger cap hit than DT simmons, etc) next year is actually not good. Is in fact bad. And you can’t justify that kind of money for a bunch of tackles and the “attitude he brings.” You actually need results.

        • Palatypus

          I always forget about Jeff Simmons,

          Harsh. Someone go give him a hug.

          • LouCityHawk

            That wasn’t meant to sound mean, I feel like he used to write a lot somewhere, but maybe I have him confused with someone else.

            It is impressive that Seahawks fans can support so many different podcasters, YouTubers, media channels.

  2. AlaskaHawk

    I haven’t had a chance to listen yet so you may have covered this.

    There is a report that Lock has an ankle injury and the Seahawks are promoting Ahlers off the practice squad as the backup QB.

  3. UkAlex6674

    30 odd million for 3500 ish yards and 22 tds? Pass.

    30 odd million for 3500 ish yards and 22 tds and a deep playoff run?

    • Peter

      If he’s the reason? Sure. Like he puts us over the niners or Philly on the strength of the passing game in the playoffs.

      I’m this old today to learn that Wilson was dirt cheap on both superbowl runs. If efficient as a passer is all we need to make a deep run then it becomes about can 30 million be spent on any other players to push us over the top?

      I hope, I really do that Geno picks it up soon. I think the team could be a hard out for anyone if he’s firing.

  4. RomeoA57

    Jeff brought up a good point that many Seahawks fans are ignoring about Carolina and NYG being the worst teams in the NFC. The Seahawks Defense was mostly unimpressive against the Rams and Lions, then dominated the dumpster fire teams Panthers and Giants. The Rams are 2-3. and are not a good team, but they dominated the Seahawks in Week 1.

    If the Seahawks can get pressure on Joe Burrow and limit the Bengals Offense, they can win this game. If Burrow throws for 375 Yards and 3 TDs, that will tell us that this offense just got fat off of two pathetic teams.

    The Seahawks offense did practically nothing against the Giants. This was probably due to the multiple injuries on the offensive line, but if they keep playing like that, they will not win many more games.

    • KitsapHawk

      I look at this next stretch of five games and it wouldn’t surprise me if they won all 5…or lost all 5. Who is this team? Hopefully they figure it out, because the NEXT 5 is 2x vs SF, Rams, Eagles, and Cowboys.

      • dave M

        next 5 is bengals, cardinals, browns, ravens, commanders

    • UkAlex6674

      Rams and Lions are top 8 in Offense. So it’s fair to say Seattle aren’t the only ones who was mostly unimpressive.

    • Peter

      I’m pretty interested to see if the run defense is real or if Seattle is going to luck itself into a top unit.

      When I say luck….they really shut down the Rams. Akers is a nane and had a games worth of attempts for nothing.

      Detroit was doing well until Montgomery left the game and they had to play “keep up,” on offense.

      Carolina…14 or 15 carries doesn’t show anything.

      Giants? See above and Jones was their lead rusher.

      Now with Chubb and Connor out those two teams would have provided real tests but who knows now.

      The way I see it Seattle might get through the season playing 4-5 teams with rushing attacks of any note.

      Hopefully regardless of the bengals game ( win of course is ideal) they make some hay now to stay in the hunt. Because I agree with Kitsaphawk that the next five games could go either way but is the best chance to have a strong record before getting into the weeds.

    • LouCityHawk

      All I’ve heard from the national media is that the Panthers and Giants are horrible teams, and fans have been (Laughingly) suggesting they couldn’t beat Georgia.

      The DLine was impressive against the run in all weeks. Consistently posted good PRWR’s in all weeks. Did this against the elite Lions line. The difference in the Lions game is that Goff was good, and the coverage was abysmal. In the Panthers game the coverage was again the issue (safety play in particular). Against the Giants both Riq and Spoon were on the field, Love played at a high level + the NYG OLine (Plus Danny) were so bad that the only thing stopping our pass rushers from getting home on almost every play was bear hugs.

      Prediction: Burrow will face some pressure, the coverage will be the biggest determining factor in how the Bengals passing day goes.

      Like any week this season, the Seahawks ultimate success in a game is going to rest on Geno’s shoulders, the defense being better than expected is nice, but we need Detroit game Geno+

    • pdway

      yes but if you’re citing the above – you’ve also got to note that we went into Detroit and beat a Lions team that was feeling good at the time, is now 4-1, and that many people have as a top-5 club.

      Rams game now looking more like the outlier, but it’s early still.

  5. Big Mike

    Haven’t had a chance to listen yet either. Started out doing so for the first couple of minutes but do to difficult life circumstances (elderly parents) I had to turn it off. Think I will get the chance today and am definitely looking forward to it.

    Thanks as always for providing us with content Rob and thanks to Jeff for joining yesterday.

  6. pdway

    How are you all feeling about the game this weekend? I’m a pretty glass half-full type of Hawks fan for the most part…but have bad vibes about this one. Burrow looks to be back to normal, and the Bengals are home, and dropping to 2-4 doesn’t mesh w their season expectations at all.

    I foresee a slow start and bengals getting up early, and us never catching up. Will be happy to be proven wrong of course…..

    • Peter

      I have iffy vibes. Seattle is pretty bad after a bye. Bengals “need,” to win.

      And if Burrow is back-ish the way they win pretty much is how Seattle has never been great at stopping. Burrow is one of the best at diagnosing the blitz. Witherspoon already looks fantastic at disguising but Adams is out there pretty obvious when he’s going to blitz.

    • LouCityHawk

      This is going to be an annoying game for everyone involved.

      I’ll be sitting with a bunch of my friends (all Bengals season ticket holders), and they feel as much trepidation about this game as most Seahawks fans I’ve spoken to.

      You have two QBs that aren’t quite right, the Seattle OLine has played well, the Bengals hasn’t quite come together yet. Both WR groups have played well, but haven’t really gone off. They see the difference in that their defense has taken a step back from last season, and ours has taken a ‘big’ step forward. They are fearful of a home blowout…

      I’m feeling like an annoying game where Burrow just kind of hangs around because our offense can’t put the game away. Burrow is going to have to fight his big play instincts, and the offense will have to be adjusted to provide crossing routes over the middle and quick slants. If NYG was a coming out party for Witherspoon, CIN has all the makings of providing JSN with his own Star moment.

    • IHeartTacoma

      Ja’Marr will be the difference, according to my crystal ball.

  7. LouCityHawk

    Enjoyed the listen, although I’m starting to feel like certain members of the Seahawks media are grasping at straws to not say that some of their preseason hot takes were wrong (when it is easy enough to say ‘only 4 games’). JSN OROY and +750Rec yards isn’t looking so good, heard someone say JSN would supplant Lockett by seasons end, wish I could remember who now. All time bad defensive line was another one that got thrown around.

    I’m also getting weary of the Geno excuses that seems to roll out every week, OLine injuries, etc… It could just be that Geno is limited as a QB and will never take that next step. Suggesting that Geno had chemistry issues with JSN and Bobo, you’d have thought I was standing there with Rick Mirer on my right arm.

    I think we have a pretty good idea of who this team is going forward. It isn’t the LOB defense, it isn’t really a top 10 defense, probably 10-20 with everyone healthy. What the defense is…is good enough to make a difference if this offense plays like the top 5 unit it should be. And that is a team that can challenge anyone.

    I also may have to figure out a way to selectively block out all the unabashed 49er love. Worst it’s been in a decade, matching 2019 season slobberathon status currently. No one was declaring the Giants as the worst team in the league when the 49ers beat them, suddenly they are because the Seahawks did? And the Seahawks played them in New York?

    • RomeoA57

      If you take out the Second Half of their game against the Cardinals, the Giants have been outscored 135-31 in 4.5 games, That surely rates as a worst team in the NFL candidate.

      Both the Giants and Seahawks offensive lines where a shambles for that game, but Seattle managed to handle that better. Seattle’s offense didn’t do much other than not lose that game.

      I believe we just don’ t know how good this Seahawks team is. One win against a good Detroit team. Two wins against awful Carolina and NYG. One ugly loss against the Rams. I want to see how Seattle handles the next four games with injuries on their offensive line and if the defense keeps improving.

  8. Peter

    I never ever understood the JSN = Lockett talk. Whether equal to or supplanting him. They are very different players.

    I thought the pick was to be a dynamic offense. And build on last year. No such luck as of yet.

    • AlaskaHawk

      The way they are playing JSN behind the line of scrimmage instead of downfield, I don’t see much benefit from him. Hopefully this isn’t one of those cases where they are 50/50 successful in their first round picks. But something has to change, and frankly I don’t see a long career in JSN. Use him while you can before he gets smacked real hard.

      I guess what I’m trying to say it, it is easy to see the potential in Witherspoon, but I’m not seeing it in JSN. Smaller guys should at least be quick and durable.

  9. Palatypus

    You know, Al Michaels called Shawn Hoccul “Ed” last night. I started to wonder if he was going to refer to Taylor Swift as Taylor Dayne.

    • AlaskaHawk

      I look forward to Travis Swift being added to her entourage, maybe they can toss the football on stage.

    • Peter

      If you like that, download the kiro app and listen to Wyman in the booth.

      • Peter

        That is plausible that they don’t want him getting drilled in space while the wrist heals.

        I really hope that’s it because otherwise years of data suggests Seattle has never really used, nor had to be fair, three recievers effectively.

  10. Brodie

    My sincere hope is that JSN wasn’t 100% so far. He had a bad wrist and sat out most of his last season in college. The kid gloves were trying to keep him healthy while also getting a taste of NFL game speed.

    When I saw him at camp (pre-wrist injury) he was running most of his routes in the middle of the field and looking great. Hopefully the plan all along was to keep him away from big hits and then incorporate him after the bye. His route running and ball tracking are his best skills. Screen passes where he just stands there and catches it or 2 yard out routes is a waste that even the most untrained eye can see.

  11. Sea Mode

    Ian Rapoport

    The #Broncos are releasing veteran pass-rusher Frank Clark, sources say, unable to find a trade partner that all sides are comfortable with. He’ll now be a free agent after playing in just two games for Denver.

  12. Blitzy the Clown

    Pretty cool analysis of Shane Waldron’s use of 12 personnel this year

    • cha

      I’m impressed with how well Orlovsky works the board. That’s truly impressive, no joke.

      I have two problems though here:

      1-for some reason, they get all clenched up on third downs. Why? Do they not have the confidence to call these types of plays?

      2-this is related to the stream topic. If you can design an offense that runs the ball well and gives the QB some great free looks like this, why are you paying $35-40m a year? Why not sift through solid but cheaper options and bide your time until that once-in-a-lifetime guy comes along?

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Agreed on all points

        Isn’t that what Shanny’s doing down Santa Clara way?

        • Peter

          I thought Cha was talking about them. Not to be a total wise ass here because I really like our runningbacks and we don’t have a Lamar Jackson but Seattle, right now, isn’t some heavy hitting running attack. The team is currently in the middle of the pack as a rushing team.

  13. Sea Mode

    I don’t see it as any kind of disrespect. What’s he supposed to say?

  14. Sea Mode


    Sam Monson

    Sean Payton believes Caleb Williams is a ‘truly generational player’ & is good enough that somebody will tank for him+cause the NFL to move to a lottery system to stop it happening again

    I bring this up for no particular reason this October evening…

    • Palatypus

      But, he can always just skip a year with that NILA money.

  15. BK26

    Ryan Leaf said that he would take Penix over any other quarterback, number 1 overall…because of the offense he runs and because he doesn’t get sacked….

    Turns out that he doesn’t get sacked because he’s so good at getting the ball out and not the line. Who knew?

    It’s weird that those are two reasons that I DON”T want him. If memory serves me right, Leaf felt Hooker was the best quarterback last year.

    • AlaskaHawk

      I’m fine with Penix as a prospect, I would just hate to use a first round pick and then have him get the injury bug again. Maybe he has gotten stronger and healthier?

      • BK26

        I think he’s behind some of the others just because of the offense. It’s so easy and caters to the quarterback that I can’t see it translating. He might have a lot of work to do after getting drafted.

        And those injuries, all knee. I can’t see him having a long career. Hopefully there isn’t anything lingering or that there is too much wear and tear.

        • AlaskaHawk

          When you consider that this blog was tracking 4 quarterbacks pretty hard last year. Three drafted in the first round.

          Young is doing so so with 5 touchdown to 4 interception ratio.
          Stroud is doing the best playing for the Texans
          Richardson was doing okay until he hurt his shoulder, he’s out for 4-8 weeks
          Levis isn’t starting.

          So even drafting quarterbacks you like, that’s a 25% success ratio at this early date. It will be more interesting to see how they finish the season and whether they start next season.

          • Rob Staton

            We’re five weeks into a season Alaska

            You can’t start referring to ‘25% success rates’ six weeks into four players’ careers

            Especially when one of the players hasn’t even taken a snap yet!

            • AlaskaHawk

              Of course, that’s why I talked about waiting to evaluate.
              Anyway, all I’m saying is that the draft is a crap shoot even after you have done your best evaluation.

              • BK26

                I do think that with some players, you just get that good takeaway. Stroud is doing what I expected him to (just much earlier), Richardson needs better coaching. Period. But his flashes don’t surprise any of us. Young is about where I thought he would be: went from the best talent around him to arguably the worst. I’m impressed that the Titans sat Levis. I think he’ll be fine. Pretty sure that this year was a “get through it and soft reset” year.

                Rattler I would have a similar sense of just everything about him, his game, what he’s gone through, I have extreme confidence in him. Same with Shedeur. With Riley Leonard, watching him work the pocket and keep control was impressive. Gives me a bit of Burrow vibes in that sense (watched very limited tap on him, however).

                No other quarterback makes me feel good that way. Too many bad offenses that hinder the player, bad coaching. etc. Penix could play out of that, but too many worries and saw too much of Indiana. Too much for him to prove outside of this season.

                I was also wrong about Kellen Mond as a counter point. Just thought he would come along after a year or so and take ahold of the Minnesota job.

                I will say that is college football year is the most enjoyable overall for me. There is just a difference when you know that the new guard and new team leaders are coming. We all frequent this page enough that we all geek out more than normal fans for the draft and the prospects. Me now compared to pre SDB is a much smarter fan and college football is now also better that I can link it to the Seahawks every week.

                • Peter

                  I’m a bit less enthused about the college season this year than normal. Just a bit. But I will agree that the years of following this site have certainly made college more fun for me overall.

                  Not that I care about Heisman trophies, like the pro MVP award essentially meaningless, but I’ve yet to see a player truly dominate. If I had to venture a guess I would say Penix, I suppose. You often bring up his injuries a completely legit concern, btw, but my problem with Penix in the pros is he’s been playing in the same system for over half a decade. It’s not just some tweaks here and there. It actually feels like a ground up rebuild to play in a pro system.

                  Back to our team. I am pretty interested in how these next few games go. Listened to maybe Cowherd ( other?) Did not realize that the Browns defense led by Schwartz is on a historic pace for one of the best defenses ever. I reference that game because that will be as close to a complete offensive lineup since week one with hopefully the whole oline back.

                  • BK26

                    Heisman just doesn’t translate to the NFL. It usually goes to a system guy that is tailor-made to put up numbers. I’m also an Iowa fan and…no one from there is going to be in the running haha!

                    Good point on Penix: he’s played in that offense (more or less) for 5 years. 5 years of not getting coaching to prepare him for the NFL. Also, are people going to knock his age like they did Levis? Same age more or less when they get drafted. I agree that he might basically be coming in needing a complete rebuild.

                    Didn’t have a clue on the Browns defense being that good. Wow. Talk about a team that was just missing their quarterback over the last couple years…

                  • Peter

                    Conceding only 198 yards per game total offense ( Seattle is around 367). A little over half of opponents plays are gaining zero or negative yards. Have two games holding opponents to just three points.

  16. Palatypus

    Bonus Friday the 13th larceny for you all.

    Since Devon Witherspoon got the “five-finger discount” in the last game., I decided to go “Rob” his high school.

  17. Sea Mode

    Cool documentary for those who like learning about tech and the amazing amount of work that goes into broadcasting an NFL football game.

    • TomLPDX

      Wow, what a cool video! Thanks Sea Mode

  18. Blitzy the Clown

    Charles Cross is a go for Sunday. I like the sound of that. Any word on whether Jason Peters will be active?

    • cha

      PC said Damien Lewis is emergency use only, and was real coy when asked who takes his spot. Later he was asked about Peters and said he’s flexible on the OL and can play guard, so…maybe?

      They also asked if Bradford can play LG and Pete said he’s had practice work there.

  19. Troy

    Anyone watching the Colorado Stanford game? The juke hunter just put on the Stanford player was nasty, would love to see him end up on the hawks and also would be interesting to see if he can 2 way in the pros

    • Justaguy

      One can dream…

  20. Volume12

    Just got around to watching that Georgia/Auburn game and…

    God damn! Auburn S Jaylin Simpson is some kind of athlete. Crazy good production in the SEC, good length, tackles extremely well. Built like a modern day safety. Would be SHOCKED if Seattle doesnt like him come the 24 draft cycle.

    I am, excuse the pun, on Iowa TE Erick All. That’s a next level TE right there.

    • Mick

      Draft a safety would be the smart thing to do. The way Pete functions though, we’re probably gonna try to get Simmons from the Broncos, because we can’t pay less than 15 mil on a safety.

  21. Romeo A57

    Colorado blowing a 29 to 0 lead at Halftime to Stanford is hilarious. I quit on this game at 22-0. Glad to see that Stanford didn’t quit

    • Romeo A57

      I wonder if Coach Prime already has coaching offers in the ACC or SEC. I hope to see more pictures crying Buffalo Students after Coach Prime leaves this year.

  22. Peter

    Thanks for the great podcast Rob. I was left thinking one thing in the back of my head and it pertains to Ewers. If he’s the right pick at the right spot at the right time for this team then it makes sense.

    But you mentioned a connection he and John might have. And honestly I think that’s great. However I would hope the GM of my team is not making picks based on how likely they are to hang out.

    • Big Mike

      Or what their religious beliefs are or are not.

      • RomeoA57

        I am skeptical that Pete would let John use a high enough draft pick to get one of the top QBs in 2024. I wouldn’t be too worried about any connection John has to the Quarterbacks.

        Pete’s clock has to be ticking and it seems his time will be up in 2025. If 2024-2025 season is Pete’s last, I cannot see that he would want to have a rookie starting QB for that season.

        • Rob Staton

          Not this again 🤦‍♂️

          The franchise isn’t prohibited from planning ahead at the most vital position because of Pete Carroll

          They studied the QB’s thoroughly last year

          They are prepared to take one.

          • Romeo A57

            Rob, I really hope that I am wrong about this and the Seahawks make a serious investment in the Quarterback position. I need to see it to believe it.

    • Rob Staton

      It’s not basing a pick on it, just a way they could bond on top of the evaluation

      • Peter

        That’s fair.

        Tbh I’ve not watched much of ewers yet. On Google images here in the states he looks a little slim and every still photo is of him throwing sidearm like a pitcher working the corner of home plate.

        Plan to really get into qbs this week.

  23. Palatypus

    Miami at North Carolina.

    The quarterback play in this game should make people break out in hives.

    I’m looking in my crystal ball and see Cristobal broken and shattered.

  24. Palatypus

    Emeka Egbuka out for Ohio State today.

    I found this 2024 mock on PFN. He has 5 Quarterbacks going with the top 6 picks.

    • Anthony

      Absolute fantasy here

  26. GeorgiaSeahawks

    Georgia C Van Pran recovers a fumble, then picks up a first down like a fullback. Great agility for a 6’4″ 310 lb. man to reach down and grab the fumble, then leap out of the pile and spin several yards.

    • Palatypus

      Van Pran was also very impressive in the “draw your team mascot in 30 seconds” challenge on College Gameday.

  27. GeorgiaSeahawks

    More proof Jarran Reed is having a great start to the year. Almost double his previous high in pressures at this point of the season.

  28. AlaskaHawk

    Most of the early games were blowouts. But fun to pick out players you would like to have on the Seahawks team. I had written down Georgia Bulldogs T. Smith, a defensive back had a great game.

    Anyone watching Texas A&M at Tennessee?

    Or the last gasp of the PAC with Washington playing Oregon?

    • Palatypus

      Watching Oregon@Washington in Florida.

    • Big Mike

      Go Dawgs

      • Palatypus

        Oregon is wearing the “speckled eggs” uniforms today.

        They are about to get cracked.

        And scrambled.

        • AlaskaHawk

          That’s funny! I had my morning eggs Easy Over. LOL

  29. AlaskaHawk

    Georgia’s Tykee Smith is a Senior so may be available. He’s a small safety, 5-10 and 205#. But he’s very active and has already made 3 interceptions and 22 tackles this year. He has possibilities if he slips down the draft.

    I mean can you imagine if Pete tripled down and got another first round safety? I wonder how much money the Seahawks would have tied up in safeties then?

  30. Palatypus

    That was a perfect tackle by Powell.

    • Starhawk29

      Plays like that are why I watch football, not basketball.

  31. Blitzy the Clown

    This Huskies offense is something else

    • Big Mike

      Penix’s accuracy is something else

    • Big Mike

      Their run D otoh….

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Big stop to hold them to the FG here tho

        But through the air (threw?) or on the ground, the Huskies offense won’t be stopped today

  32. Palatypus

    Is it me or is the center for Oregon way quicker than everyone else on they’re O-Line.

  33. AlaskaHawk

    That was an interesting 2 point formation that Washington made. For those not watching, they lined up normally, then moved into a four two four player formation with wide splits. That was way fun! Penix is looking great today!

    • Palatypus

      You could see the panic.

      • AlaskaHawk

        Penix made that 4th down catch a lot harder than it should have been. Lucky the catch wasn’t overturned.

  34. Big Mike

    I talk about his accuracy and then he throws that

    • Big Mike

      (not the pick, his receiver fell down………the 4th down throw)

  35. AlaskaHawk

    Oregon is putting up a fight! Nice to see a close game after the morning blowouts on the main channels.

  36. AlaskaHawk

    Whoo Hoo, Washington defense held somehow. Now lets see a repeat at the finish.

  37. Blitzy the Clown

    Big stop to open the 2nd half

    LFG offense

  38. Palatypus

    Both Oregon cornerbacks are on the turf.

    Gee, I wonder what the next play is going to be?

    • Blitzy the Clown

      The old liquor store rob job

  39. Blitzy the Clown


  40. Palatypus

    Poor tackling.

    • Simo

      Piss poor I’d say. Ducks have really controlled the game

  41. Rob Staton

    Spencer Rattler looks fantastic today

    Legit, legit talent

    • Peter

      Can’t wait to see that replay. Thats a heck of a game stat line so far.

    • BK26

      He’s going to play out of our range. Could easily be qb2.

    • geoff u

      Man crush developing.

  42. AlaskaHawk

    I’m not sure if Washington Defense is tired, or Oregon offense has gotten better? Or is Penix not doing as well? I dont like that way this game is heading.

    I thought after Oregons two corners went down that it would be a cakewalk to the finish.

    WEll Penix just made another good throw – i saw a stat early on that Penix was throwing much better when he wasn’t pressured (yes a real revelation right?)

    • Palatypus

      I think the bigger issue is somehow they forgot how to run it up the middle with an 11-point lead.

      • AlaskaHawk

        That wild cat play there was an opening if the runner had cut back.

        mmm Dang. Well maybe Oregon’s defense is that good. At least the line.

        So I am feeling better about Penix throws, even if they didn’t make it into the end zone. I thought he had lots of good throws in this series.

        • AlaskaHawk

          Wow, good Wash defense. okay Penix last chance.
          Yes, a 34 yard pass completion to the 20.

          This game has had a lot of ebbs and flows. Pretty evenly matched teams.

  43. ShowMeYourHawk

    Man, I know he won’t last but adding Odunze to this offense would be mind-melting. Love me some “No E” but maybe you pull the trigger on his successor, if he’s somehow there?

  44. Palatypus

    Tyler Van Dyke versus Drake Maye is about to begin.

    TVD and Drake Maye walk into a bar…

    • Rob Staton

      YouTube shutting down all the streams for Miami vs UNC

      I’ve got USC vs Notre Dame on British TV (which has Notre Dame home games only this season)

      • Palatypus

        Drake Maye is currently 1-5 for 47 yards with about 20 yards rushing in this thrilling 0-0 shootout.

  45. James

    Does anyone think Frank Clark will come home?

    • Palatypus

      Not a chance.

    • Rob Staton

      Heading back to KC apparently

  46. Anthony

    I’m not sure if we really learned anything new about Michael Penix Jr. The intangibles and arm are off the charts.

    His receivers are in their own class. I couldn’t help but notice how thin he is in his lower half and how he uses so much of his upper half to throw.

    I also question how he will hold up taking hits every week in the NFL, when his very first test against pressure was suboptimal and he was hurting after only a couple hits. I see third round based on this and his medicals.

    • ShowMeYourHawk

      Same. I frankly don’t care how much of a siege engine arm he possesses. He’s statuesque in the pocket, locks on and too often just flings it up, counting on his receivers to adjust to wherever the ball is going to land. Given his sleight frame and his injury history, I’d stay well away. Great story of a kid that believed in himself enough to keep going in college football but likely a professional footnote.

  47. Palatypus

    The broadcasters of Miami at NC reported that Mario Cristobal said that last week’s loss united his locker room.

    I guess he doesn’t have internet.

    • ShowMeYourHawk

      Let’s be fair and presume he meant that the locker room was united in their contempt of his coaching.

      • Palatypus

        I see.

  48. Palatypus

    The commentator for Auburn @ LSU just said that the Auburn running back gets, “a lot of hidden yards.”

    I hope the chain gang can see them.

    • geoff u

      I get at least 1,000 hidden yards in the NFL every season, usually running around in the back yard after a good or bad play. A damn shame the NFL doesn’t see it.

  49. Palatypus

    Since the board is slow today, I have to get something off my chest. Everyone will make fun of Deion Sander tomorrow for losing to Stanford, but I find his charisma absolutely infectious. For example…

    We all know that Deion Sanders is the spokesperson for Golden Corral. Well, there is this blonde girl from the ‘chicken tenders versus baby back ribs’ commercial” that I was crushing on. As it turns out, she plays one of the new characters in ‘The Boys” spinoff ‘Gen V’ as a student at a superhero college. I was excited about this because if you have watched ‘The Boys’, you know that your favorite character will eventually be involved in a weird sex act.

    It took all of two episodes for LIzze Broadway to do something completely twisted. But without Deion Sanders signing off with his tagline, I just couldn’t enjoy it. It felt empty. I just wanted him to say, “You keep the receipts girl!”

  50. GoHawks5151

    TVD looking good. I still like his potential.

    • KD

      He really feels like the forgotten man.

    • Palatypus

      Am I the only one the thinks of “Foxhole Norman” Van Dyke from Band of Brothers whenever he looks bad?

  51. Starhawk29

    Watching Caleb Williams tonight makes a tad concerned. Under siege, seeing pressure, his decisions have not been great. The amount of pressure is very NFL esque, and he’s not looking like himself so far. Whole half of football to be played still (commenting with 11 min left in the 3rd), but I want to see him overcome this adversity.

    • Palatypus

      Scouts are going to have a lot of great tape on Notre Dame after playing undefeated teams four weeks in a row. They might actually beat one!

    • Starhawk29

      This performance should be a reminder that Williams is not an automatic franchise savior. He’s an excellent prospect, but with his team self destructing, hes been unable to will them back into the mix. Some people have begun talking about him like he automatically will be a franchise saving player. He’s immensely talented, and the clear 1st overall pick, but people need to slow their roll a bit.

      • Palatypus

        BUT, even though everything went wrong tonight, he is still clearly the best. He had Russell Wilson disease holding on to the ball too long, and Notre Dame did everything to him that the Rams and 49ers did when Russ looked terrible. Still, he had some Patrick Mahomes-type moments

        AND, Notre Dame has had the most brutal three weeks in recent college football memory This was their last chance to impress the poll voters because the rest of their schedule is Pittsburgh, @Clemson, Wake Forest, and @Stanford.

        That’s not exactly the murderer’s row that Ohio State, Duke, Louisville, and USC were. If they had a game against Michigan this year, they could have maybe made the playoffs.

  52. AlaskaHawk

    I would like a double serving of Devontez Walker, UNC wide receiver. Good speed and length, and 2 touchdowns today!

  53. KD

    Gotta say, I’m a bit thankful that I had to work today and could not watch the UW v ORE game because I probably would have smoked two packs of cigarettes if I had the day off and watched it. I was able to keep up with it by watching numbers scroll by on USA Today’s website and that was stressful enough. What a game though!

  54. Palatypus

    The USC punt returner face masked the Notre Dame punter as he got tackled out of bounds. I don’t think I have seen that before.

    No flag.

  55. Seahawkwalt

    Raheim Sanders rb Arkansas, 6’2 240 reminds me of a faster Steven Jackson. Wow!!!

    • Palatypus

      Miami has a sophomore safety who is 6’5 215 lbs who hits like Kam Chancellor.

      • Justaguy

        Love your enthusiasm but nobody hits like Bam Bam

  56. Palatypus

    A few plays earlier, if Caleb Williams had taken a sack, instead of keeping his balance and making a short completion, the defender would have been called for a horse collar tackle.

    Them’s the breaks.

  57. Dave Thompson

    Will Jayden Daniels move higher up the qb rating lists? And will Drake Maye become number one on some lists?

    • Rob Staton

      And will Drake Maye become number one on some lists?

      That would be ridiculous.

      Everyone, take note of any mocks or projectionists putting Maye ahead of Williams because he had a three-interception game.

      Patrick Mahomes had 25 interceptions in his final two years at Texas Tech.

      Don’t box-score scout.

  58. bmseattle

    this is a real bummer for Richardson.
    Hope it doesn’t effect him, long term…
