Podcast appearance: Reviewing week one in Denver

This week I was invited onto the Pedestrian podcast to review the week one loss to Denver. We didn’t hold back. Check it out…


  1. Georgia Hawk

    Small shift in focue back to Draft and rookies..

    Rob, what is your take on Ronald Jones’ bad pre-season and coaches decision last week? Its a bit of a shocking start for someone so highly regarded, IMO.

    • David Ashton

      Good question!

    • Rob Staton

      I just hope that the things I heard about him during the pre-draft process aren’t the reason why he’s not getting a look in early. He needs to make this happen. He has too much talent.

  2. Bankhawk

    Rob, first time I’ve heard you with this crew – loved it. I share your frustration on the lack ò follow through on stated intentions offensively this past week. Also have trepidations as regards lack of draft stock next year when it looks to be a draft tailor made to the team needs.

    Any chance the Pedestrian Podcast will become a fixture?

    • Rob Staton

      It’s already a regular fixture to be fair, I was just a guest on their show this week. It’s always a good listen so I’d recommend every episode. And I’m always happy to go on when asked.

  3. Logan Lynch

    Dissly has been compared to Zach Miller from the beginning. Can’t remember where I heard it, but someone (probably on a podcast) said that they think he could be better than Miller. Initially, I dismissed this thought as ridiculous. Today, I decided to look at Miller’s stats with the Seahawks. It might not be such a hot take.

    2011 – 25 rec, 233 yds, 0 TD

    2012 – 38 rec, 396 yds, 3 TD

    2013 – 33 rec, 387 yds, 5 TD

    2014 – 6 rec, 76 yds, 0 TD *only played 3 games*

    I don’t expect Dissly to put up the crazy receiving numbers from Week 1 regularly or maybe ever again. But, he could easily put up the type of receiving seasons MIller had from 2011-2013. Miller was obviously also a great blocker, which was the main reason Dissly was drafted and he showed flashes of those blocking skills during preseason. I guess in my mind I thought Miller was far more productive in the passing game than he actually was. To be fair, he did have significantly more yardage and 12 TDs with OAK. Still, calling Dissly the “new Zach Miller” might be more realistic than I originally thought.

    • Volume12

      He was also the only TE and the only rookie, including WRs, to have over 100 yds receiving. W/o Baldwin his odds are good that he’ll have more games similar to week 1.

    • GoHawksDani

      Miller’s greatest strength as a receiver was that he was available when needed. He didn’t do anything flashy or eyepopping, but he made some game changing catches.

      If Russ can build chemistry with Dissly it’ll elevate the offense and saves us from some 3 and outs

  4. Volume12

    This doesn’t have anything to do with the podcast (good listen) or anything to do with any posts here, but I’m really starting to hate the terms ‘coverage sacks’ and ‘cleanup sacks.’ When did hustle and effort begin to diminish?

  5. bigten

    May be an off the wall take, but during the preseason, I saw Dissly as a more poor mans (very poor until he shows consistency) jason witten. Similar to Dissly, witten was a defensive player coming out of high school, and was known for being tough. Witten was faster, 4,7 compared to 4.89, and better college states. But similar profile in my mind, and witten was drafted in the 3rd. Thats who im hoping he can aspire to be, opposed to miller.

  6. SeventiesHawksFan

    This is for sure going to rank among one of my favorite analysis posts of all time that you’ve ever composed, Rob. And it’s quite apparent the thought and thoroughness that went into it.

    When you can find the time, I’d love for you to train your analysis on how offensive coordinators have been attacking Carroll’s tendencies and scheme by relying on us only rushing with four with max protection for the QB and fewer receivers sent into routes with usually only one hot read or option. But OC’s now know how to scheme that primary option open, taking advantage of seven guys on the back end, six of whom will by play design be nowhere near where the ball will be thrown.

    Hence our no better than even odds on third and critical down and distance situations.

    • SeventiesHawksFan

      This was supposed to be in the ‘Deep Ball’ post above. And I’m now seeing it was written by a Mr. Adams.

      Still the podcast was great.

    I like honest, no nonsense talk. Loved listening to this!
