Pittsburgh’s Patrick Jones is one to watch

Patrick Jones is flashing first round talent

The Seahawks don’t have a first or third round pick in 2021 so if they keep their second rounder, there’s a decent chance it’ll be spent on the defensive line.

With such limited stock, it’s going to be hard to make projections for what could easily be a non-top-50 prospect. Testing is going to have a bigger impact than ever next year with many players opting out of the college football season (although it seems the idea of ‘writing-off’ the 2021 draft was a bit premature, given all the major conferences are now playing).

Pittsburgh’s Patrick Jones is definitely one to monitor.

Today, he was fantastic against Louisville — recording three sacks and three TFL’s.

On the first sack he forced the left tackle into a wide stance because he was terrified of his speed off the edge. It’s an awkward position for a blocker and Jones capitalised — engaging with a fantastic punch and driving him back into the quarterback.

It’s a classic speed-to-power move that will have NFL scouts drooling.

His second sack came on a spin move that completely stunned the right tackle. He exploded into the backfield but couldn’t bring down the QB who tried to extend the play. Jones kept his motor running and mopped things up shortly after.

Jones’ third sack was a speed rush to the edge where he actually lost balance as he flew by the tackle. He recovered to complete the play.

He was constantly in the backfield using his quickness to impact running plays and disrupt the quarterback.

It was especially pleasing to see him using his hands and winning with power because his 2019 tape showed plenty of ability to win with speed. Now he looks like the complete package.

The Seahawks like their pass rushers to be lean with great bend and flexibility. Darrell Taylor doesn’t have the best get-off but he has tremendous balance and works some ridiculous angles to beat the tackle and straighten to the quarterback.

Jones shows off similar skills. He’ll drop his shoulder and dip to avoid contact, pivot from the block then work to the passer.

If you don’t control him after off the release he can beat you with quickness. He can swim inside to offer variety. We saw today the power he possesses and he’s mixing in a spin-move. His get-off is certainly good enough (it’s better than Taylor’s). He’ll put a tackle on skates and he gets wide to avoid the initial contact and then he’s athletic enough to straighten and finish.

He’s a classical pass rusher in the Seahawks/Carroll mould. This is the type of player they look for. He’s a pin-your-ears-back and get after it type with the frame, size and hands to play early downs. He’s what the Seahawks currently are missing.

When you watch him operate in space he’s very fluid. There’s very little wasted movement. There’s a suddenness to him. He provides that quick, early pressure that disrupts a quarterback. You need someone who can create easy 1v1 wins (or at least make it look easy). He could appeal to 3-4 teams because of his mobility.

Jones could’ve declared for the 2020 draft but opted to return this year.

How he tests will be vital. The Seahawks will still want to see a good 10-yard split and a decent overall profile. He’s ideally sized (6-5, 260lbs) but arm length is also key. He was only a three-star recruit so there’s no guarantee he’ll test brilliantly.

In terms of personality he’s all business. Jones is a man of few words but he booms them out with a deep, serious voice.

He has a terrific backstory as John McGonical notes:

“…Jones, whenever he’s asked where he hails from, acknowledges that he’s “not really” from Virginia. The son of a naval IT chief, Jones spent most of his life overseas. And it was in Japan, 6,500 miles from Pitt’s campus, where the pass-rusher found the game he loves.

Jones was born in Yokosuka on Sept. 29, 1998. He doesn’t remember much, living there until he was 3 years old, when his father and family were relocated to a base in Jacksonville. After a couple years in Florida, the Joneses moved to Naples, Italy, for three years, then back to Japan. In 2007, they took temporary roots in Misawa, an eight-hour car ride north of Tokyo, on the northern tip of the island. A few years later, the family went back to Yokosuka, where they stayed until December 2012.

Jones’ official Pitt bio says Chesapeake is his hometown, where he and his family relocated and remained in 2013. But everyone who really knows him understands that the around-the-world childhood he experienced shaped him into something more than a normal stateside kid.”

He’s also a multi-sports star and excelled at baseball — something the Seahawks appreciate.

Tony Pauline is reporting that he’s been given a firm second-round grade by teams. Based on what I’ve seen so far that’s a conservative projection. He has first round potential and if he lasts into round two — he’s definitely someone the Seahawks could have on their radar.

This is a really talented Pittsburgh defense. I wrote about two of their other players back in July including safety Paris Ford who I also like a lot.

    I am gonna bet Seahawks trade down from the 2nd to recoup more picks but I totally agree Seahawks need a Dline pick

  2. cha

    Nice writeup Rob.

    I’m having Darrell Taylor PTSD so I have to ask. Any injury history you are aware of?

    Also, you referenced in the piece he rushed the left tackle and the right tackle. Any idea on if he can projected to EDGE on either side in the NFL? A guy the Hawks can move around could really be a valuable asset.

    • Rob Staton

      No injury history to my knowledge.

      I think he can rush from different angles. Obviously though, for Seattle’s scheme he’d work mostly from the right side.

      • cha


        That swim and get skinny move at 1:50 vs Duke is insane. Reminds me of Clowney, like he just starts the play behind the LOS.

      • Gohawks5151

        Was Taylor hurt a lot or just the one injury?

  3. Sea Mode

    The wait until the end of R2 is already going to be really, really, really long.

    And if we trade that pick at the deadline…

    (I mean, I’d do it, but it sure makes it hard to read about any exciting prospects in this year’s draft)

  4. Rob Staton

    Mississippi State vs LSU is an absolute mess.

    Could be a long season for the Tigers.

    • cha

      LSU obviously sorely missing their two best players from last year….cough…

  5. dcd2

    Nice Rob. I’ve been in love with this guy since last year. He looks like a perfect LEO. I know I’ve brought him up in the comments quite a few times, and have been eagerly awaiting your thoughts on him. Loved the write up and haven’t seen him this year, so I can’t wait to check out the bulked up version.

    Some absolute ballers on that PITT defense.

    If people haven’t seen it, here is his ’19 highlight reel.


  6. GoHawksDani

    Different topic but I’m so pissed the Hawks drafted Collier, Blair and Metcalf and only a little later (could’ve easily trade up) instead of McLaurin. Baldwin knew the guy, SDB also loved him. He tears up with even Haskins. I know we have less info than GMs but sometimes it’s just seems crazy not to pick someone…

  7. Rob Staton

    KJ Costello hasn’t changed. Still the same player.

    Turnover machine. Blowing this game for Miss. State.

    • Rob Staton

      Twitter already massively overreacting and getting silly because Costello’s team won.

      Bet you anything he starts popping up in R1 mocks which will be ridiculous.

      He had four turnovers including two in two possessions that almost cost them the game. It could’ve been three turnovers in three possessions but he was bailed out on a fumble on replay.

      He just put up about 600 yards in a Mike Leach mass production offense against a LSU team that is a shell.


      • Volume12

        Agreed. I didn’t think he’s a 1st rounder either. Even though they won, I thought he cost em the game if that makes sense.

        • Volume12

          * don’t

  8. Volume12

    Have u seen Duke’s Victor Dimukeje yet? Rob?

    • Rob Staton

      I haven’t

    • dcd2

      I watched him a bit. He doesn’t look very long. More of a SAM, don’t you think, than a LEO?

      • Volume12

        I think he can play either. Seattle can’t be picky about pass rushers. Profiles are out the window, within reason. They need guys who can get off the ball & string together moves. Dimukeje has get-off that he can convert, plays hard, fantastic leverage guy,

        • dcd2

          I don’t know. If we weren’t being picky, we would have signed Matthews or Griffen or any number of guys. We feel like improving the pass rush absolutely needs to be the key, but the actions of the FO seem to indicate that they don’t feel that way. At least not to the extent that we do.

          I’m forced to conclude that they don’t see it the same way that most of us do. Not to say that they feel like it’s totally fine and nothing needs addressing. More that their ‘value’ of DL in general plays into the decision making more than we’d like. They don’t seem to be willing to spend big (or at all) on DL. Whatever their criteria for DL is, they went back to the well by bringing back Bruce and Mayowa, rather than targeting productive players who didn’t fit their profile. Maybe they were just too expensive, but I wouldn’t toss out what they’ve done in the past because we think that the DL needs to be priority 1, 2 & 3.

          All that said, I should have another look at Victor. I just didn’t think he looked like a ‘Seahawky’ guy.

          • Rob Staton

            They meant it when they said DL and pass rush was the priority.

            They just did a poor job. And they know it.

        • Rob Staton

          Profiles will never be out the window with this front office.

  9. dcd2

    Another Duck – Jevon Holland – announced he’s opting out and going pro. He was graded as the best slot corner in the country last year. That makes 4 Ducks Sewell, Holland, Lenoir & Graham skipping this season.

    I doubt any of these guys end up Hawks, but there are rumors that another opt-out is coming from Eugene. If it’s Jordon Scott, he might be worth a look. Big 3-4 NT, that would probably be a decent 1T alla Poona. No idea on his arm length though.

    • Rob Staton

      I hope whoever they bring in is better than Poona.

      I think Ford is overrated. Decent rotational DT. Someone you’re happy bringing off the bench to share the load.

      He didn’t have a good season last year and this year, after two games, he’s being graded among the worst DT’s in the league by PFF.

      For all the people happy to praise the run defense — there’s a reason they’re bringing in Snacks for a look next week. It’s not for Snacks’ quick-twitch pass rushing ability.

      • Lewis

        “Decent rotational DT” would be pretty awesome for a guy that was undrafted, if we had a proper starter to go in front of him. As with others like Mayowa, they are asking these guys to play beyond what is reasonable.

        • Rob Staton

          Well yes, I agree. I think Ford is overrated by fans and media but that’s not his fault.

          • Gohawks5151

            He is an easy guy to root for. A guy that was talked a lot about on this site for his unique build. But he really should be a 3rd tackle. Like everyone else he is playing too much snaps

          • dcd2

            Agree, but for a UDFA he’s overachieved.

            Scott might be a day three pick, that’s why I mention him. He’s not very tall, and he’s the one guy out of that group that we might be interested in AND have a shot at.

            2021 draft class focus, looks like it is going to be on guys that are strictly day 2/3.

            • Rob Staton

              Overachieved? No.

              We don’t need to define players who make a roster as overachieving. Especially if they just end up being backup level.

              • dcd2

                He’s our starting DT and wasn’t drafted.

                • Rob Staton

                  Starting is an irrelevance. It’s how you play.

                  The Seahawks started Drew Nowak once.

  10. CaptainJack

    The two notable UW defensive linemen, Joe Tryon and Levi Onwuzurike, both opted to forgo the season and sign with an agent early. Rob, do you think either of these two would be interesting to look at round 2? I suspect Tryon not playing will knock his stock down, he was being talked about a bit as a first rounder but I don’t quite see that.

    • Rob Staton

      I’ve only watched Onwuzurike of the two. I thought he showed some flashes but his tape lacked ‘wow’ moments. Testing will be key for him.

      • Huskyboy


  11. Volume12

    D’Eriq King man. Impresses me more & more. They’re dangerous.

    • Gohawks5151

      King looks really good. Taking a lot of steps forward in his game. Jaelen Phillips is a freak. Crazy athletic tip ball pick. Also Amari Gainer is an absolute unit. He could end up like Cam Akers. The most talented player on a ultimately bed team

      • Volume12

        Cam’Ron Harris is good too! They’ve impressed more than anyone so far.

        • dcd2

          Agree. A lot of NFL talent on that team.

  12. Donovan

    #11 DE for LSU flashed. Know nothing about him, but he looked really good.

    • CaptainJack

      Local kid from Edmonds, Ali Gaye. Committed to UW but didn’t qualify for some reason, went to JUCO and then signed with LSU.

  13. Tanner

    Rob, we talk about pass rush being a huge need, but what about a left tackle? I know the Big 10 will have a delayed start to the season, but a guy that I am going to be watching is Alaric Jackson from Iowa. He’s listed at 6’6″ and 320 pounds so that fits Solari’s large profile. He plays LT fand he was so good that it kept Tristan Wirfs, a top 15 selection in 2020, on the right side of their line. And we know just how much this FO values getting guys that play in a phone booth (like Damien Lewis last year at LSU) rather than in a spread system. Could he be the heir apparent for Duane Brown? I’d argue that is almost just as important since we’ve seen Russell take off since they had acquired Duane Brown from the Texans.

    • Rob Staton

      Well I’ve been talking a lot about the LT position for months.

      But they don’t have a R1 pick until 2023. So good luck finding options in the draft.

      • Robert

        We could still find options in this draft. Look at Damien Lewis. I know it is early in the year but he is doing good. He was a third rounder, so we could still find good offensive lineman even if they are not a first-round pick.

        • Big Mike

          HUGE difference in availability of a LT vs a RG. Many teams look for LTs regularly. And btw, Lewis is awesome. Pro Bowls in that man’s future.

  14. charlietheunicorn

    You have to pencil out the 1st rounders, so you can get an idea of what might be available to Seattle later in the draft. It is going to be incredibly difficult to project past the cream of the crop 1st rounders (top 15). Rob/V12/cha all most likely has a pretty good read on these purple chippers. But everyone else, some 2000+ guys will be tough as heck task to sort through.

    I’m not sure how front offices will evaluate talent this year.
    Base it off of 2018/2019 game tape?
    Will the weight their evaluations towards guys who participate in 2020?

  15. Rob Staton

    Shaquem Griffin in the regular season last year:

    80 pass rush snaps

    0 sacks

    1 tackle

  16. Sea Mode

    Wait, so why are they even trying to block for him…? 😉

    PFF SEA Seahawks

    When under pressure, Russell Wilson has an adjusted completion percentage of 100% and a passer rating of 156.3, both ranking first in the NFL this season.

  17. Trevor

    If Benson can’t play today I am so pumped to see that dynamic pass rush rotation of Collier, Shaq Griffen and Alton Robinson.

    • Henry Taylor

      Not sure Mayowa actually makes me that much more excited for that group.

      • Rob Staton

        That’s the point, right there.

        We’re hoping a player who is at best a DE3 can play today.

        A career replacement level player.

        Who happens to be playing 90% of our snaps as our only pass rusher.

        What the hell did they do this year.

        • Bmseattle

          It’s difficult to imagine how they could have messed up the the defensive line situation more they have.
          It is truly mind boggling how a position group that was a professed priority has ended up being arguably the worst in the league.

          • GerryG

            I’ve been as critical as anyone about what they did on DL, but I will say that at least they acquired players at DE: Taylor, Robinson, Mayowa, Irvin. DT they just people go and didn’t even add.

            This is in no way defending the botched the DL strategy, just highlighting that I think DT was more bungled than DE.

            • Rob Staton

              It was all bungled Gerry.

              They didn’t do anywhere near a good enough job building the D-line this year and they created a problem that could easily prevent this team reaching its potential — despite rightly acknowledging it was the defining priority of the off-season. They emphatically failed at both DE and DT.

          • Rob Staton

            Completely agree.

            It’s barely believable that they ended up with this situation and it’s wholly unacceptable.

            • cha

              Here’s what I’m thinking today.

              Will the pass rush be any different with Irvin out and Mayowa banged up?

              Leaning hard towards no.

                • Rob Staton

                  Just a lot of stating the obvious really.

                  We’ve all seen this coming for months.

                  We simply have to hope that they can keep winning in spite of the DL until options to upgrade hopefully emerge.

                • Lewis

                  Great article. Hopefully somebody like Robinson seizes the opportunity and flashes a bit.

        • Trevor

          No one was more critical of the Hawks approach to the OL under Cable but IMO the way they have handled the DL this year is far far worse than even that. Sad part is that there was no need for it. If they didn’t have cap space or draft capital at least there would have been an excuse. No Ireally don’t see any fix for this season.

          I truly believe that if Russ got hurt this week that this team would not win another game this season because the Defense is not going to steal a couple and that is both sad and inexcusable IMO considering we went into the off season with a ton of cap space and draft capital.

          Still think we are going to win today in a Big 12 type shootout 38-35. Go Hawks!

          • Rob Staton

            It’s on a totally different level to the OL.

            As we talked about to death at the time — Seattle was paying a high number of stars. Wilson, Wagner, Sherman, Earl, Chancellor, KJ, Bennett, Avril, Baldwin and others.

            There had to be a saving somewhere. They had no money. Rightly or wrongly they put their faith in Tom Cable being able to coach up a unit. They also pumped draft picks into the unit — they’ve spent as much as any team on the OL over the years. People always acted like it was Cable making the picks directly. He wasn’t. He gave his input as all positional coaches do. That was explained numerous times. John Schneider is the GM and makes the picks.

            It didn’t work. They had a poor line. I’d argue it never cost them a season though — and it certainly didn’t prevent Wilson from excelling, or Marshawn, or even players like Thomas Rawls on his rookie year. Wilson’s scrambling and ability to evade helped the situation and that played into their thinking.

            With the D-line it’s totally different. They had enough money to spend this year to blow $50-60m. They frittered it away on crap players and didn’t do anything to improve the D-line despite saying it was the priority. They’ve created chaos on the defense as a consequence.

  18. cha

    This having an open roster spot is strange, even with COVID protocol delay built in.

    They must either have a handshake agreement with Snacks if he checks out (and weighs out) or be waving a flag at him that they’re holding a spot for him.

    • Rob Staton

      It could also simply be money saving.

      They don’t need to fill that spot this weekend. So why bring anyone up just to pay them money to be inactive?

      • cha

    Is it just me or does it seem like almost almost every team in the league sucks on D this year for one reason or another. I thought that side of the ball would have an advantage with the lack or practice but I guess no crowd noise really is a big advantage on offense.

    Is there a dominant defensive unit in the league this year? Ravens or Bills maybe but even they are not great.

  30. Easy Answers Hard Choices

    Rob – another nice analysis, but it’s quite possible (likely?) Jones won’t last into the 2nd round. And even if he does, the Seahawks will draft too late to acquire him. Russell Wilson’s continued brilliance will guarantee that. Welcome to football hell, a place where PC and JS’ abject incompetence (the past five or so years) has resulted in an inferior roster and very little means for improving it. And not enough cap space to instantly rebuild a roster to Russell Wilson’s liking. The (not) dynamic duo have always been so anxious and proud to demonstrate how much smarter they are than the mainstream – which has produced quirky, inexplicable drafts including the likes of Christine Michael, Germaine Ifedi, Bruce Irvin (instead of Fletcher Cox) Paul Richardson (Devante Adams), Malik McDowell (TJ Watt), Ethan Pocic and the final coup-de-grace – Rashaad Penny (Nick Chubb) They then traded Frank Clark, and with their subsequent draft capital in 2019 were planning on drafting (if reports are to believed) Brian Burns (or Montez Sweat?) and Jonathan Abrams – only to be outsmarted and ending up with….LJ Collier, Marquise Blair and speed bump Cody Barton.To compound the problem, their never-ending mistakes in the draft have resulted in spending more draft capital in trades that yielded Sheldon Richardson and Jadeveon Clowney – based on the misconception that that SR and JC would likely re-sign – why wouldn’t anyone want to play for the smartest guys on the planet? Two characteristics of arrogant people – they believe they’re popular – everyone likes them and wants to be with them, and they also believe they’re smarter than everyone else. Arrogance leads to laziness, unpreparedness and hence no backup plan. Only when it’s too late do arrogant people realize they’ve been outsmarted which leads to acts of desperation – hence I give you the Jamaal Adams trade.

    Russell Wilson is no fool. He wanted the team to add superstars, and instead we end up with Greg Olson, BJ Finney, Benson Mayowa, Bruce Irvin et al. Not exactly what he was asking for. This will be Russell Wilson’s last season in Seattle. He only has so many fingers with which to plug the dam. And when the team finishes 8-8 (or worse) and gives up an average of 450 yards and 30+ points a game, the dam will finally break and RW will grow weary and realize the cause is hopeless. After the season he’ll privately demand a trade – knowing that the Seahawks have absolutely no realistic way of becoming a Super Bowl caliber team in the foreseeable future. The demand will of course come with the implied (or explicit) threat that if a trade is not executed before an appointed time (one month before the draft?) the demand will be made public. Given the realities of the salary cap era, the market for his services will be limited to teams that 1) are only an accomplished QB away from the Super Bowl and 2) have enough cap space and to add RW without imploding their roster. That – in combination with other teams’ knowledge that the Seahawks have been painted into a corner – means the draft capital returned will be less than expected. And the cycle of incompetence is now complete.

    They did it to themselves. Glad I got that off my chest.

    • Rob Staton

      “Rob – another nice analysis, but it’s quite possible (likely?) Jones won’t last into the 2nd round. And even if he does, the Seahawks will draft too late to acquire him.”

      Sure but I did acknowledge that in the piece.

      • Easy Answers Hard Choices

        Understood and acknowledged.

        Apologies as I kind of used your analysis as a pretext for unloading all my frustrations with the way this franchise has been managed the past few years (something you’ve obviously covered with great insight)..

    • Volume12

      I think they’ll trade back in the 2nd to get a 3rd. If they can that is. Also think this might be the year we see them take a corner before the 3rd.

  31. charlietheunicorn

    Bengals leading…… shocking

  32. Volume12

    Bills got bailed out by a sh*tty call. We’ll take it though.

    the hawks and cowboys are close when matched up, I say the game is decided by lousy officiating

    And I thought The Masters was a tradition like no other, nope it’s the Atlanta Falcons blowing a fourth quarter lead.

  37. Lewis

    Just me, or did Brown get beat badly on that sack?

    • Rob Staton

      It was a quick throw. Coverage sack. Wilson didn’t like what he saw.

      But yes Brown disengaged quickly.

    • Volume12

      He did.

  38. Rob Staton

    3rd and 6.

    Seahawks blitz.

    Get a ‘pressure’ through the blitzing Adams.

    No sack though.

    Dak converts for a first down.

    Rinse and repeat.

    • Rob Staton

      Another 3rd and 6.

      Another blitz.

      Another ‘pressure’ but no sack.

      Another conversion.

    • Lewis

      Yeah. Though the same

      My thoughts exactly he looked like a snail

  40. Volume12

    Good play by Ugo

  41. charlietheunicorn

    Take 3 points all day. Defense made a few plays, showing some life.

    • Volume12

      Give Dak credit. He hung in there & didn’t panic.

      • charlietheunicorn

        Cooper made a nice grab over middle.

    • Sea Mode


  47. AlaskaHawk

    I know you think the defensive line is the big issue. And I won’t argue it isn’t.
    But this offensive line could easily be in the same shape at some point of the season. They have to stay healthy.

    Yeah! Locketttttttttt.

    Press box announcement: Seahawks RG Damien Lewis (ankle) is questionable to return.

    • Rob Staton

      At least it’s not a knee.

      • charlietheunicorn

        I just thought the same thing. 🙂

      • Sea Mode


        and the way he fell a knee looked more likely than an ankle.

      • Rob Staton

        Although apparently he was carted into the locker room so man that’s disappointing.

    • cha

    Thats a safety man. Come on

    • Volume12


    • AlaskaHawk

      I love it, what would you call that, a running back slip due to defensive line penetration?

      • Volume12

        Hmmmm 🤔. He slipped, but if Mone doesn’t get the penetration there, he’s outta the end zone.

  51. Rob Staton


    • Lewis

      What a weird sequence

  52. charlietheunicorn

    Good play right there

  53. charlietheunicorn

    Get the ball back, time to cook!

    • charlietheunicorn

      Need big lead, just in case lol

  54. cha

    Dallas ST helping our defense out right there.

    Foot on the gas, offense!

    You can dance if you want to…

    • cha

      Cause your friends don’t dance

      And if they don’t dance

      They’re no friends of mine!

  56. dcd2

    Woohoo!! Safety – what a gift.

  57. Sea Mode


  58. charlietheunicorn

    Mone and Alton Robinson in on play?

    • Huskyboy


    • Volume12

      Mone & Poona I thought, but u could be right

    • Rob Staton

      Looked like a good push from the line, maybe a run blitz, and Zeke fell over.

    • Huskyboy


  59. Leonardo

    On a positive note, it feel like this is the least sloppy our team has been in a long time. The offense is committing fewer penalties and able to pass its way out of trouble when we fall behind the chains. And our special teams has been rock-solid so far (small sample size obviously). Will be crucial to keep this up since our defense will be on the back foot all year.

    • Rob Staton

      “it feel like this is the least sloppy our team has been in a long time”

      Don’t speak too soon.

    • Huskyboy

      Offense -1

  60. Rob Staton

    O-line is playing poorly.

    Duane Brown looks terrible.

    Ruined two drives.

    • Matt

      Entire offense looks way off today.

    • Volume12

      Yep. He’s getting worked

    • charlietheunicorn

      Looks gimpy, like he has a lag injury and can’t “drop an anchor” on pass rushes

    • AlaskaHawk

      Alton Smith is a guy I’ve always wanted on the Seahawks team.

      I think the problem there was everyone was covered, and it was a long drop. When will they start using quicker passes?

    • Lewis

      And same move by smith both times

    • Sea Mode

      Just got tossed aside by Aldon.

    • Rob Staton

      Also look what a difference one guy off the edge can do (in this instance, Aldon Smith).

  61. cha

    Cowboys getting a dollars’ worth of pass rush for a nickel with Aldon Smith.

  62. Rob Staton

    Dallas are now featuring two UDFA tackles and a backup center and guard.

    If they can’t rush vs this line, who will they rush against?

    • cha

      If you’re going to jump offsides, you darn well better bring the QB down.

  63. Volume12

    Collier has flashed a couple times so far.

    • Lewis

      I thought he deserved a lot of credit for the sack earlier

      • Volume12

        Lining him up at 3-tech I’ve noticed too

    • Huskyboy


  64. Rob Staton

    Another blitz on that throw to Cooper. Wagner this time. Nowhere near. Converted.

    • dcd2

      Flowers got cooked on that route too.

  65. Rob Staton

    Two blown timeouts for too many men on the field in the first quarter.

  66. Matt

    This defense is atrocious. If this isn’t fixed, we are talking about a really fun offensive season of going 9-7 or 10-6 with 1 playoff win.

    I know we’ve beat this point to death, but what the heck were they thinking this offseason?

  67. charlietheunicorn


    • Huskyboy


  68. Sea Mode


    • Volume12

      +1 (actually 2 Husky beat me to it)

  69. cha

    Cowboys ST gonna grade out real well by PFF tomorrow.

  70. Trevor

    19 points so far and the offences have made a ton of mistakes. They could break 70 for the total today.

    • Trevor

      Sorry 18 that could end up being a huge miss by Zurlein.

  71. Troy

    Cowboys have 3!!!! Rookies on oline, and our d can’t get pressure. By far the worst dline in the league and it isn’t close.

  72. Rob Staton

    DK Metcalf what a total idiot.

    What the hell is he doing.

    A play after blocking like a 6-4 trifle on the play before.

    • Rob Staton

      What the hell is he doing?


      That’s a huge moment.

      • Volume12

        That was stupid

    Teaching moment for sure

    • Rob Staton

      Kick up the arse moment more like.

  76. Big Mike

    Set him down for the rest of the 1st half so he can think about it for a while

  77. charlietheunicorn

    There was some pass rush for ya right there

    • Huskyboy

      Collier is on fire!

  78. Troy

    DK with a complete mental collapse, wow.

  79. jopa726

    Typical Seattle Seahawk Game

  80. bootfall

    Okay… I’ve taken a moment to calm down.

    That was a teaching moment.

    That should NEVER happen again and I doubt it ever will happen again.

  81. Sea Mode

    Woof. Good think is he’s gonna take a ton of heat for those two plays tomorrow in the team meeting, and had better learn his lesson fast.

  82. Trevor

    Well done DK brain cramps all around so far today.

    If the reporters don’t ask Pete repeatedly about the pass rush after this game they should be fired for failing to even resemble reporters.

  83. charlietheunicorn

    Brooks with a Pass Defensed according to ESPN

  84. Tony

    Dk will have a handful of really dumb moments each year. Absolute beast with bonehead moments. I hope he learns from this.

  85. Sea Mode

    I heard “Collier” and “pressure” in the same sentence. I’ll take it.

    • charlietheunicorn


      Actually, anyone with a pressure, I’ll take it

    • Volume12

      He’s played well today. Gotten a little better each game. At least I’ve thought.

      • Gohawks5151

        Agree. For a guy with low expectations he’s coming on a bit. Mone too

    Hyde had nothing but green grass in front of him on 1st down there

    This has not been a good start on offense.

    • Rob Staton

      We rely on the offense. Need to be better than this.

  91. Pran

    Such laziness shows arrogance of DK.

    Ugo, Jamal, Robinson playing well on defense..otherwise defense sucked big time.
    Offense can’t get out of its ownway. So many 3 and outs.

    We have a heart breaker on hand.

    • Volume12


  92. AlaskaHawk

    That punt was so close to pinning them on the one yard line.

    • Sea Mode

      How he sometimes gets it to sit down like that after the bounce is pretty incredible.

  93. Trevor

    Not sure if it is good or bad that Collier and Ugo have looked like the two best defenders today.

  94. Volume12


  95. Rob Staton

    Good defensive series.

    Dallas overthinking things big time.

    • Rob Staton

      Now get your arse in gear offense. Stop messing around. Protect, execute, finish.

    • Tony

      Looks like classic mccarthy to me!

    • Sea Mode

      Yup. Please no one let them know they could just be dropping back to pass every play…

  96. charlietheunicorn

    This season is all on russ going off. Any somewhat off day he has will sink us.

  98. Mike


  99. AlaskaHawk

    Go Carson, lets get the running game going.

  100. Rob Staton

    We’re running for 6.8 a pop.

    Might be worth a few extra totes.

    • Volume12

      Carson’s ran well. I agree

  101. Volume12

    Go back to DK

  102. Rob Staton

    Passing game is so sloppy today

    • cha

      Dallas is conceding the middle of the field. Why aren’t the TE’s running wild?

      • charlietheunicorn

        Went Olsen in endzone, so at least trying to get them involved

    • Rob Staton

      No issue with being aggressive. I like it, as does everyone.

      But you’re running for 6.8 a carry, the protection is bad and the passing game is discombobulated.

      Carson is 4/38 running.

      Just saying.

    • Pran

      There is no rhythm. Need to go back to heavy run and play action.

      • Rob Staton

        They don’t need to go ‘heavy run’.

        But Carson has four carries at nearly 10 YPC.

        He can have a few more.

  103. AlaskaHawk

    That two man tackle on Wilson might be illegal. One guy was low.

  104. Volume12

    Defensive holding

    • AlaskaHawk

      That penalty was costly for Dallas.

      • Sea Mode

        Huge break for us. We really need to get some momentum going.

  105. Volume12

    Mugged Lockett.

    Punch it in w/ CC or fade to DK

  106. Rob Staton

    That should be pass interference not a hold. He stopped Lockett making that catch.

    • Rob Staton

      Well done refs.

    The only thing preventing me from going enjoying this game is Troy Aikman.

    Cannot believe he’s allowed to call this game – such a homer.

    • Rob Staton

      I never understand the negativity about Buck and Aikman.

      As someone who has commentated on games for 20 years, I think they are absolutely at the top of their game.

      • Tony

        But the thought of giving troy every cowboy game is annoying. I like my broadcasters somewhat unbiased.

    • Pran

      Someone suggested to mute TV and tune to Steve Raible on Radio

      • Rob Staton

        Then people can do that.

        I think it’s a treat when we get Buck & Aikman.

        I do this job and I know I’m nowhere near their level but I’m telling you — EVERY fan base thinks EVERYONE is biased. And they never are.

        You do this job as a pro.

    • Gohawks5151

      I like them. I think they are fair. Aikman just said the Olsen penalty should be overturned. Honestly it’s Bucks voice I remember vs Green Bay in the NFC championship game

    • cha

      Have you read or seen some of his comments about the Cowboys and their leadership in recent years? I don’t know, I just don’t see any favoritism.

      Joe & Troy, Jim & Tony and Al & Chris are very, very good right now.

      And on the plus side, ESPN got rid of Booger on MNF and Fox hired Brock Huard, who did a nice job today on the broadast I thought.

  149. Rob Staton

    What a mess of a half.

    Nice of Dallas to make up for Metcalf’s brain fart by missing XP’s and giving up a pick in just enough time to score.

    Wish I believed we were good enough to pull away but I suspect we’re set up for another heart attack game.

    • Trevor

      Mess is how I would describe the NFL season so far.

      One big advantage about having a elite top 3 QB is that all other things being equal you have a huge Edge when things are messy.

    • Gohawks5151

      I’m not gonna short Shaq on that one. It was a nice play on the ball

  150. Tony

    Ill take the lead, but this game screams last minute win/nail biter.

  151. Steve Nelsen

    Should be 30-15 with 4 1st-half TDs. The D has handled the run well and got some pressure. I don’t think Dallas can stop Russ.

  152. Sea Mode

    A safety, a doinker, a blocked FG, a 60+ yard bomb punched out for a touchback, confusing as heck officiating (although in the end they’ve got it correct), and a halftime score never before seen in the NFL… this first half has been really weird.

    • charlietheunicorn

      I refuse to believe 23-15 has never been a 1st half score.. EVER in the NFL.

    • Pran

      We had enough. Let’s call it a game and give game ball to Lockette

  153. DriveByPoster

    Do we have a shot at a scorigami here? I’ve missed it so!

  154. Trevor

    In the next 2 drafts we need to find a pass rusher, DT , RT and LT. Should be simple with no 1st round picks. Considering we have only drafted one good pass rusher in the JS era and not drafted any good OT or at least that they felt were good enough to get a 2nd contract.

  155. charlietheunicorn

    Lockett had 6 catches… and had 4 misses out of 10 targets.
    But as long as he keeps pounding the endzone with catches he makes, I’ll take it.

  156. Trevor

    This offense is so good that they can play flat out awful and still put up 23 in a half. Should have been 30 if DK never had a brain cramp.

    If they can figure out the OL it is certainly the best in the NFC I think.

    • Volume12

      If they had a pass rusher they’re 1 of the best teams in the NFL. Close to that w/o one.

      • Lewis

        Yet I think it is fair to say the defense has made a few more plays than we are used to seeing

        • Volume12


  157. cha

    You simply cannot bank on Dallas coming out in the second half and giving you the game with sloppy penalties and bad ST play.

    Time for some of those famous PC halftime adjustments.

    The offense has to play with purpose. “This is what we’re going to do. Try and stop us.” Run Carson and Hyde. Get the OL some confidence. Power formation. GET WILL DISSLY INVOLVED. They’re making this way harder than it should be.

    Griffen’s INT should be a boost. You CAN defend these guys. Get sticky. You can’t let guys run free in the secondary.

  158. Rob Staton

    Yes what a start!

    A blitz actually worked!

    • cha

      REED ! I see you !!!!

  159. cha


  160. Volume12


  161. Gohawks5151

    Brotha Reeeeeeed!!!!!!

  162. Henry Taylor

    Let’s Go!

  163. cha


  164. Rob Staton


    Love how we are dealing in the red zone.

    • Trevor

      The biggest improvement in the offense the last year and 3 games.

    • Gohawks5151

      100% red zone scoring! Someone call 2013 Russ and tell him it gets better

    • Tony

      We are showing you can pass on the 1 lol! 3 td passes at the 1 today. All great calls.

  165. charlietheunicorn

    Play call worked like a champ.

    Sending a bouquet of flowers to the OC

    • charlietheunicorn

      RW with 4 TDs….. zzzzzzzz

      • charlietheunicorn

        1 more for the record through 3 games with a TD pass!

  166. Big Mike

    Prescott got hit right after he let go of the ball on that interception by Griffin and then we just got the turn over. It’s amazing what pressure on a quarterback does for a defense

  167. AlaskaHawk

    A great defensive play leads to the touchdown. Nice. I love seeing that killer instinct on both sides of the ball.

  168. Tony

    Yes! Lets go!!!!

  169. Rob Staton

    Please, please, please.

    Find a way not to make this close.

    Please just win. Comfortably. I want to sit down and not pace around the room tonight.

    • Big Mike


  170. Trevor

    Kudos to Pete in that he recognizes they can’t win 1 v 1 battles on the DL so he is blitzing like crazy. If they can learn to defend behind that over the next month it might be the only way they have a chance.

  171. Sea Mode

    That’s the way we like it!

    Oh, and one more TD and Russ beats the record for most TDs over 3 games, right?

    • Sea Mode

      Haha, that’s a couple times now that the commentators have been peeking at SDB… 😉

  172. Rob Staton

    Poor from Griffin there. He’s right on the spot to make the play and make them punt.

  173. Rob Staton


    Either Fox messed up with their red line there or something very strange happened.

  174. Volume12

    That’s a BS spot.

    • Rob Staton

      It looks like Fox had their red line the other side of the line. Yet the chains stretched to the line. Which was odd.

      • Volume12

        I thought he was short

  175. cha

    Hawks can smell blood. Put this one away guys.

    • Rob Staton

      Get off the field here. They’re rattled. Don’t give them life.

      • Rob Staton

        Lovely tackle by Amadi.

        Fantastic start to the second half by the defense.

        Fast, aggressive. This is better.

        • cha

          If you’re gonna blitz, you better effect the play. And they are.

      • cha


      • Sea Mode

        Wish granted!

  176. Volume12

    Alton again

    • Gohawks5151

      Here comes the 5th round steak!

      • charlietheunicorn


      • Gohawks5151

        Steal. All steak, no sizzle? I can’t recover from that one

    • Trevor

      Why has he not been active since Game #1?

      • Volume12

        I can’t answer that. Makes no sense. He’s disruptive

  177. charlietheunicorn

    That was a good defensive stand there

  178. Pran

    Amadi is playing lights out.

    • Gohawks5151

      He flying around man

    • Henry Taylor

      Player of the game on defence.

    • Trevor


  179. Trevor

    I have been impressed with Amadi seems like a baller even if a little limited physically.

    • Rob Staton

      He’s staying disciplined and hitting his targets. Good performance.

  180. charlietheunicorn

    Dak not helping his case to get paid

    • cha

      Is he checking down or are those the plays they’re calling? Horrid.

  181. Trevor

    Would love to see them pound the rock with Carson this drive.

  182. Steve Nelsen

    Come on Russ! One more for the record and we all go get a beer.

  183. Volume12

    Keep running CC

    • Volume12

      Hell of a play from Lawrence there

  184. Rob Staton

    Hell of a shoestring tackle by Lawrence there.

    • Volume12


  185. Volume12

    What a freakin punt!

    • Trevor

      He is a special punter. Never thought I would ever say that.

      Special teams has been awesome so far this year. What a difference from the last couple of years.

  186. Rob Staton

    Really hope a combo of O-line meltdowns and Wilson jitters isn’t going to become a trend.

    Nick Bellore — BAMF with that tackle.

    Lamb felt that.

    And what a punt.

    • cha

      That’s prime 2018 Dickson. An intentional line drive punt that dribbles deep.

      He’s back to being a weapon.

  187. Pran

    How is Aldon smith playing that well.. for <1m.

    • Trevor

      He is the Josh Gordon on defense. Special talents with big off field issues.

  188. Sea Mode

    Lol, colorful from DJ Dallas there…

  189. bootfall

    Ceedee’s lucky his leg is still attached to his body after that tackle.

  190. Rob Staton

    And there’s the Seahawks’ defense we all know.

    Griffin. Deary me.

    • Rob Staton

      Griffin well beat on the touchdown too.

      Absolute joke of a defense. Good grief.

    • Trevor

      He is not getting an extension before hitting the market.

      • Volume12

        It’s time to take a corner early

    • Chris

      Good Lord. Way too easy. **Looks for pacing shoes**

    • Pran

      Is diggs out of position.. he is caught chasing so many times.

  191. dcd2

    Oh man. Come on Shaq

    • Volume12

      Right? Didn’t even put a move on him

      • Volume12

        Again! I wouldnt be giving dude an extension

      • dcd2

        Straight past him. Then gives up the TD a play or two later.

        Missing Dunbar already. Shaq and Flowers looking bad.

    • Pran

      Paid right back. Awful Griffin.

  192. dcd2

    These TD drives that take less than a minute are brutal

  193. charlietheunicorn

    Time to get the offense in gear, might need 45 pt

    • Trevor

      First to 50 wins. Looks like Big 12 footballl Texas Tech vs Baylor.

  194. Trevor

    Teams are going to realize they don’t even need to try and run the ball. Just pass, pass , pass and focus on blitz pick up.

  195. Rob Staton

    Dak’s already at 292 passing yards.

    Nearly 100 more than Wilson.

    This defense… as I’ve been saying… is going to cost them a game they have no business losing.

    • cha

      But Rob! THE RUN DEFENSE!

      • Rob Staton


  196. Leonardo

    We’re going to set the record for most 2 or 3 play touchdown drives conceded

  197. Supra22ssv

    At what point do we bench griffen

  198. Thomas Wells

    Someone else can pay griffin big money.

  199. Sea Mode


  200. charlietheunicorn

    Give RW more time to cook

    • Sea Mode

      Run the rock and the clock when you’re up by 15

  201. Rob Staton

    Quick reminder that Dallas have scored 22 points in 2.5 quarters, have 292 passing yards.

    They’re not running the ball — again — because they don’t have to.

    11 runs for Zeke only.

    • Denver Hawker

      I’ve thought Ford and Mone have done a great job against the run. At some point I think it’s fair to acknowledge they have a good run D, while also noting the pash rush is garbage and teams are going to pass.

      • Rob Staton

        Dak Prescott has 374 yards with a quarter to play.

        They’ve run Zeke 12 times.

        It’s a total irrelevance.

        • Denver Hawker

          Also fair point (and counting).

  202. Rob Staton

    Why, when Wilson has forever, does nobody uncover?

    Happened a few times today.

  203. dcd2

    Appreciate that breakdown from Aikman. Trying to show zone while in man is why Shaq was so far behind in coverage.

  204. Rob Staton

    Needed that conversion.

    Momentum was swinging.

  205. dcd2

    RW and Locket are dialed

  206. Rob Staton

    Jordyn Brooks questionable to return with a knee injury.

  207. Sea Mode

    Whew… good thing RW to Lockett is unstoppable…

  208. Matt

    This OL has got to figure it out. This is way too difficult.

  209. Rob Staton

    The offense man.

    When you rely on it… you can’t slump like this.

    Someone needs to make a play.

  210. Pran

    That sack is on Russ. He had green grass in front of him.

    • Volume12

      Yep. He needs to start using his legs and/or get rid of it

      • Sea Mode

        Yup. Force them to dedicate a LB to spy or pay the price.

  211. cha

    They needed that drive. If nothing to chew the clock and get a FG.

    This offense needs to play defense.

  212. Rob Staton

    Here comes the hot-knife through butter again.

    They’re adjusting. Why can’t we?

  213. Shadrey

    Just got off work to tune into this game and looks like it is playing out just like everyone thought it would? What a big depature from last year where it seemed like seahawks games got weirder and weirder. This season, the defense sucks, Russell is great, and it’s gonna be a one score game.

  214. Tony

    This is frustrating watching this defense.

  215. Rob Staton

    If the QB is wandering around thinking of a pitch — hammer him. It’s an invitation. One to hit the QB and two to make him pitch which could lead to a fumble.

    • Lewis

      Wright doesn’t look right

  216. Rob Staton

    It was 30-15 not that long ago.

    • Volume12

      Has no right to be this close

    • AlaskaHawk

      Oh boy, should I start drinking heavily? Come on Russell, lets move the ball.

  217. cha

    This is not even on the pass rush.

    The corners are having a terrible game. You KNOW the ball is coming. You’ve got to fight.

    • Rob Staton

      They’re getting beat time and time again.

    • Volume12

      Agreed. They need a shutdown corner badly

  218. Volume12


    • dcd2

      I’m not sure he stopped him, but that was a hell of an effort! Kid is having a game.

      • dcd2

        Redact my concern… Great play Ugo

  219. charlietheunicorn

    Amadi another play

    • Sea Mode


      (but I know they’re going to drive it right back into FG range next time they get it back, so I’m not pinning my hopes on a 2 pt lead)

  220. Matt

    DK’s showboating really, really kills us.

    This defense may end up as a bottom 3 unit. I’m now actually truly questioning the Adams trade. He’s a great player and I like him…but this unit needs so damn much to even be competent.

  221. Chris

    Horrendous. Lost total control of this game on all sides of the ball.

  222. Pran

    Not long ago secondary was considered to be a strength.. just stinks more than DL

  223. Big Mike

    Obviously BADLY in need of a TD drive

  224. Rob Staton

    Saw a tweet saying Jamal Adams took himself out of the game with an injury. Threw his helmet down.

    • Sea Mode

      Oh boy…

    • Volume12

      They said his groin 🤦‍♂️

  225. Rob Staton

    Want to be MVP?

    Get a touchdown here and go two scores up.

    • dcd2

      Want to be an announcer, drop easy passes.

      • Big Mike

        Good thing we spent 8 million dollars on him

        • dcd2

          And then drafted two more

  226. Tony

    Its official. We need to match tds here on out.

  227. Troy

    Rob you called this game being a Big 12 game. Absolutely pathetic defensive performance.

  228. Mac

    Hopefully Adams will be able to come back, need a long td drive

  229. Tony

    Losing adams makes this the worst defense in nfl.

  230. Rob Staton

    My word the offense has been hot trash in this half.

    Absolutely pissed this one away. Poor on both sides of the ball.

    • Volume12

      He had DK. Gotta put that on his back shoulder

      • Volume12

        It was a good play from Diggs too

  231. Shadrey

    Good thing we have Snacks Harrison coming in next week! Watching this game so far all I’ve been thinking is if only we had an overweight vet DT who was retired until now, then things would be good!

    • dcd2


  232. Rowdy

    The hawks look like there mailing this thing in

  233. Sea Mode

    Welp, at least ST is on point…

    Here we go again.

  234. Rob Staton

    This feels like the game we’ve been warning about.

    Losing one they had no business losing.

  235. cha

    They need to put a warning label on Seahawks games like those pharma drug commercials.

    “Watching the Seahawks will cause vomiting, diarrhea, uncontrollable falling down, and will decrease your sex drive. Do not watch Seahawks game if you have a heart condition or are prone to depression.”

  236. dcd2

    Are you freaking kidding me!!!

  237. Rob Staton

    You’ve got to be joking.

    It’s Dallas’ freakin day.

    How did that not end in a pick????

    This drive is a dagger.

  238. Volume12

    How was that not a pick?!

  239. AlaskaHawk

    OH my , Flowers kicked it to Gallup. Geez.

    • Thomas Wells

      Cue the Benny hill music

    • dcd2

      After it bounced off his face for an easy INT

  240. Chris

    You have got to be kidding me… how that ends up a completion?!?

  241. Leonardo

    Tre Flowers…couldn’t be easier, he was sitting down!

  242. Sea Mode

    COME. ON. TRE.

  243. Pran

    How the hell he can’t catch it… sucks. Pete ..ur corners are trash.

  244. Tony

    Ok, this is what a collapse loss looks like. Flowers int wouldve been huge.

  245. Sea Mode

    Haha, he may be old and slow, but he’s still the screen sniffer!

  246. Rob Staton

    A slow death march.

    • Rob Staton

      Tackling poor.

      • dcd2

        Flowers having a bad day

    • AlaskaHawk

      You can add to the list of questionable offseason moves, not doing more to improve the cornerbacks.

  247. cha

    Shaquem: “Maybe if I run straight at the OT and then spin that will work!”

  248. cha

    PC started Dunbar with little practice, all the legal drama and about half a camp.

    Now I see why. Flowers has regressed badly.

  249. Pran

    This game will define if Russ is MVP or not.

    • Sea Mode

      He will have a chance for a statement game-winning drive.

  250. Tony

    Things i want to stop hearing.

    Pete is a db guru
    We draft better in late rounds.

    • Matt

      My favorite part of the “we draft better in the later rounds” evolved from finding Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman to “well so and so made the roster.”

  251. Matt

    “My name is Tre Flowers. Watch me not finish this play.”

    My God…I almost feel bad for the guy.

  252. Shadrey

    Do you think Pete has any vested interest in making sure that Russell owns the record for most 4th quarter comebacks?

  253. Sea Mode

    Maybe we should just let them score quick so Russ has enough time…

  254. Rowdy

    Thats what said

  255. dcd2

    Encroachment: Everyone

  256. DC

    Hawks have given up over 1200 yards passing in 3 games.

  257. Leonardo

    Giving up 400+ passing yards every week is not a plan well-executed, no matter what Pete tries to say.

    • Matt

      Yes…but have you seen this run defense??

  258. Volume12

    What’s Shaq celebrating? Him & Flowers are why this is even a ballgame

  259. dcd2

    Really need a 4 minute drive here

  260. Sea Mode

    Welp, here we go. Settle down, Russ. Plenty of time for a drive.

  261. charlietheunicorn

  266. AlaskaHawk

    Oh no, not Carson.

      Alligator rolled him with his foot in his grip.

      • charlietheunicorn

        Ankle was reported

    • Pran

      That DL need to be suspended. He has no reason to twist his leg with his weight on after Carson is on ground

      • AlaskaHawk

        Yes – it seems dirty when you see the results.

  268. Volume12

    Oh no. No, no.

  269. dcd2

    That looked bad.

    • Volume12

      Could be a career ender w/ his history.

      • Volume12

        Twisted his ACL?

        • charlietheunicorn


      • dcd2

        He walked off, so that’s good.

  270. Tony

    Ok, the hell with this season. Weve been destroyed by injuries the last 2 games.

  271. josh s krueger

    Holding his leg and twisting with all his weight??? WTF… Personal foul and ejection!

  272. Sea Mode

    He had him wrapped and on the ground. Absolutely no need to roll over with his leg in a death grip ffs.

    • dcd2

      Sure seems that way

    • Volume12

      Completely unnecessary

  273. Volume12

    Why’d he gun that?

  274. AlaskaHawk

  275. Sea Mode


  276. DC

    Don’t play for the field goal!

  277. Volume12

    All these injuries, around the league, are good examples of either needing a couple pre season games or if not, more contact in practice. QBs don’t need it. Everyone else needs to get hit.

  288. Shadrey

    With how atrocious the defense is, it’s easy to focus on all of the many, many mistakes. But how cool is it to root for a qb as great as Wilson? What a response when the offense looked so bad in the second half.

    • dcd2

      +1 RW is simply amazing

    ahh, the vaunted prevent defense.

  290. Trevor

    This isn’t when you need a pass rush!

    Hope Dallas scores really fast to give Russ another crack to get in FG range because they are not going to stop Dallas at least I don’t think so.

  291. charlietheunicorn

    40 yards out… oh ohhhh

  292. charlietheunicorn

    49 is flashing… got some juice

  293. dcd2

    Quem is all over the place!

    • Volume12

      He’s popped. High energy

  294. dcd2

    Alton Robinson!!!

  295. charlietheunicorn

    Robinson, wowza

  296. Volume12

    Alton again!

  297. AlaskaHawk

    Oh yes, Robinson. Let hope for a miracle begin.

  298. Sea Mode


  299. charlietheunicorn

    PASS RUSH!!!!!!!

  300. Volume12


  301. AlaskaHawk

    Yes, the much maligned defense ends the game!!!!

  302. Gohawks5151

    Practice squad!!!!!!!!!!!! Robinson and Neil

    • Henry Taylor

      Quem was all over the place too

  303. Trevor

    Nice job Robinson. Why has he not been active till today?

  304. charlietheunicorn

    *Rob throws away article about how Seattle blew it*

    LOL 😛

    • Lewis

      Tbh, I feel like the defense showed a little bit of a spark today. They need more consistency, obviously, but some of the young guys did good things.

  305. Sea Mode

    Lets gooooooooooooooooooo

  306. Volume12

    1st place in the division w/ Miami & a lowly Vikings squad next.

    • Sea Mode

      Injuries though

    • Trevor

      It hasn’t been pretty but they could not have dreamed of being in a better spot,

      The injuries could put a bigger damper on it though.

  307. dcd2

    WOW!! Great effort by Dak there.

    1st place baby!!

  308. cha

    Man this is a repeat of last week.

    Rob, just cut and paste your Instant Reaction.

    • AlaskaHawk

      With my favorite headline “A win is a win”

  309. charlietheunicorn

    1st QB in Seahawks history with back to back 5 TD games….. wow


    • charlietheunicorn

      According to ESPN Stats & Information, Wilson becomes the fifth player in NFL history to throw at least four TD passes in three straight games, joining Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Mahomes and Drew Brees.

  310. Trevor

    13-0 when opposing QB throws for 400 yds in PC era. That has to be most insane stat ever.

    • Gohawks5151

      Seriously. Crazy

    • Volume12

      Throw to score, run to win. That’ll never change. Even if your not getting picking up yards in the run game, you control the clock & dictate the tempo. And if teams don’t wanna run against Seattle, RW will play shoot out.

  311. OH Hawk

    16-0 and a couple of heart attacks on they way.

  312. Sea Mode

    Honestly, I’m not sure we can beat anyone if Jamal Adams misses time.

  313. Supra22ssv

    This truly feels like a loss even though it was a win. What an absolute mess of a defence and it only gets worse with all the injuries we have.

  314. Trevor

    There has to be some correlation between no pre season and all these injuries. Almost every team has been hit.

    • Forty20

      There absolutely is. In recent years I have had the chance to speak at length with a number of physios and athletic trainers in Australia that work within one of our major professional competitions and players that miss preseasons due to injury or other causes are far, far, far more likely to sustain serious soft tissue injuries based on their internal numbers.

      • Trevor

        Makes sense because it is playing out in front of our eyes this year.

  315. Tony

    Atleast we can look at this team and not argue over the main problem.

  316. Sea Mode

    Rob, don’t forget to add how we were saved by penalties in crucial moments time and time again.

    • Gohawks5151

      The grabs on Tyler were grabs. Backups can’t keep up with the GOAT of wiggle

  317. Aaron

    Heart Attack Hawks two weeks in a row…

    Can the Hawks survive the injuries?

    Brooks, Carson, Lewis, Adams…

    • Volume12

      Carson & Adams should absolutely sit next week. Seattle can survive these next 2 w/o & then our bye.

      • Rob Staton

        Carson looked done.

  318. DriveByPoster

    Are you not entertained!?

  319. Sea Mode

    Well, catch y’all tomorrow on the instant reaction piece. It’s 2AM in Europe…

  320. charlietheunicorn

    OL picked it up in the second half. Had a few breakdowns, but overall provided a pocket for the passing attack….. not bad for shuffling the OL 2-3 times in the game, due to injuries.

  321. jopa726

    It would be so funny. If Pete Carroll answered every question at the press conference about defense with a monotone answer “We’re on to Miami”.

  322. GoHawksDani

    Wow what a crazy game…
    Some defensive players stepped up big times but so many injuries and some concerns.
    Offense was pretty bad all around. Bad game for Russ he was not on target and sometimes held the ball too long. OL had some ups and downs. Lockett is awesome. DK…what the f…. How can he be so stupid???
    Olsen seems mostly like wasted money. Dissly is almost non-existent. Swain has potential.
    Alton Robinson is probably our best DL player. Reed had a nice play at least. Mayowa shouldn’t be starter but he can flash sometime. So many unknown players felt totally like a preseason game.
    I know Griffin had an INT but he’s just a weak corner constantly beaten. Flowers slow too and because of that too handsy. This secondary is not a good one. I know DL hurts them too, but that is not the issue. They’re always beaten immediately.
    But…all in all I think this game is won because of the crazy effort of the defense

    • GoHawksDani

      Forget the shoutout to Amadi. Probably our best CB on the team (ouch…but he did play really well everything concerned)

      • Trevor

        He was our best player on defense I thought.

  323. Steve Nelsen

    A huge win. I was hoping to see the run D keep Zeke in check, especially in the first half, and that happened. I was hoping to see some continued improvement from some of the young pass rushers and that happened.

    But, I am cringing to hear the injury reports. Hopefully nobody is out for the season.

  324. Ashish

    #49 played lights out. I’m not big fan but he popped up showed lot of intent with so many injuries expect him to see more playing time.
