Scheduling notes for tonight

Hi all — I am working on BBC national radio again tonight for Pittsburgh vs Baltimore so won’t be able to dedicate my time to the Niners game. There will still be a post-game live stream but there won’t be an immediate ‘instant reaction’ blog post.


  1. Hawk Finn

    Ok, CFB fans: Kenny Pickett’s “fake slide” – why wasn’t he ruled down? He initiated the slide, and that is where the whistle should be blown. Blown call or an exploitation of the rule that could lead to player safety issues? I can see lots of QBs getting blown up now if it stands.

    • Peter

      You got to hope for blown call. Otherwise I think some defenders especially if tgey were on the recieving end of that would look to blow up the qb asap.

    • Peter

      Also it’s college where goofy crap can be fun but jumping cripes Pickett looks slow as a Manning on that run. And there’s easily a couple dozen near 300 pounders playing in the nfl that could chase him down before he even contemplates a fake slide.

    • Big Mike

      Terrible officiating. Whistle should’ve been blown and ball down where he began his “slide”.

  2. Belfasthawk

    Good luck!

    I will tune in during HT in the Hawks game. Enjoyed it last time!

  3. Peter


    I empathize wth you getting pulled away from one franchise circling the drain only to have to discuss another franchise…circling the drain.

    : The #Vikings will feature RB Alexander Mattison today, while #Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) should be full go. Oh, and in Seattle, Adrian Peterson is expected to get the bulk of the carries for the #Seahawks. Exploding head Exploding head

    AP: 17 carries for 22 yards

    Metcalf: three targets for 2 catches and 16 yards

    PC: “I can’t figure out why we can’t stay on the field.”

    Exploding head indeed

    • Rob Staton

      “It’s the same problems we’ve had all season”

      • Peter

        Dennis Green but swith the pronouns:

        “We are who we thought we are.” Gramattically as broken as this team i know. But it still works

      • Roy Batty

        “It’s working in practice.”

    • Big Mike

      Marshawn in his prime wouldn’t do much with this o-line. But AP? Good God the bottom for this team just keeps descending.

  5. Peter

    Re: Kelly Smith.

    A follow up about eastern washington’s Eric Barriere.

    My only concern with small school guys racking up monster yards is (not always of course) that they are superbly scheme dependent.

    Barriere is playing under the same coach who had Vernon Adams getting national attention some years back.

    I’m excited to see a few qb’s at the senior bowl because most of them this year are uninspiring to bad.

    • Big Mike

      I watched Barriere on TV 2xs this year (grew up in Spokane and my nieces both are EWU grads thus the interest). I’m not a scout or even half as smart at evaluating college guys as many including Rob, but he didn’t look at all like an NFL QB to me. I think you’re right about the scheme Peter.

      • Roy Batty

        I’m an Eastern alum, so I have have no regret saying this: Roos Field is an abomination to the eyes.

        It makes the field in Albertsons Stadium look absolutely boring in comparison.

        • Peter

          That field is comically nauseating

          • Big Mike

            100% agee with both of you guys.

  6. Blitzy the Clown

    This Michigan team feels like a team of destiny, and the program ascendent. What a joy to watch them play.

    • Big Mike

      Rooting for them for sure. Eff the SEC. Sick of ’em.

    • TheOtherJordan

      Yeah, I’m sick of the SEC too. But the destiny of Michigan is about to run into the reality of Saban assuming they get past Georgia.

    • 12th chuck

      it is awesome to see a good team play their best football at the right time of the year, only to be followed up by seahawks Saturday night and crashing back to reality

  7. Rob Staton

    This troubles me.

    This kind of tweet, which always follows a knuckle rapping, and the language used (a decade of winning, when the issues we see today are the culmination of four poor off-seasons) give off the air of a franchise that isn’t primed to make sure things are right at all.

    The first thing you need to do is acknowledge the extent of the problem. Not chalk it down to an “off year”.

    • Ok

      Extremely troubling. Competitive. You can almost hear the gum chewing in the background.

    • bmseattle

      That is ominous.
      So… it doesn’t matter how awful things get this year… we can just chalk it up to one bad season, huh?

      If she wants more than a half full stadium next year, there *better* be some changes.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      According to Garafolo, Pete Carroll “…just frustrated right now that the message that has gotten through for so long is not getting through right now…”

      Ah yes, that’s it. Too much wax in the players’ ears I suppose.

      Hey Siri, show me an example of embarrassingly lazy “journalism”

    • Roy Batty

      Good grief.

      Here I thought Garafalo had finally given at least a threadbare rope for us to cling to.

      Then Allen’s people took a machete and promptly hacked that rope into little bits of string, all whilst we fans tumbled back down into the abyss.

      I guess the only way she changes her tune is if empty seats and horrible merchandise sales start drastically hitting the bottom line.

    • Big Mike

      It’s gonna be a very long several seasons it feels like 🙁

  8. Ashish

    Can today’s loss against Niner results in firing Pete?

    • Big Mike

      if only……….

  9. cha

    “What I’m hearing is the Seahawks have Russell Wilson under contract for two more seasons, so they envision a future with Russell Wilson as their quarterback.”

    Let the jockeying and posturing begin.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Ownership is 100% responsible for the coming shit show. They could stop this any time they want with just a press release.

    • bmseattle

      “What I’m hearing…”

      From who, I wonder?

    • Roy Batty

      A shot across the bow of the USS Mark Rodgers.

    • Belfasthawk

      “And they can use the franchise tag”

  10. BobbyK

    Seahawks/49ers Predictions

    1. 49ers win time of possession 37 minutes to 23 minutes.

    2. Adrian Peterson breaks 1 run for 10+ yards but is held under 35 yards rushing total.

    3. Seahawks lose. Again.

    4. DK Metcalf goes psycho in frustration and Pete says it’s all good. Nothing to see here.

    • Big Mike

      Then Pete says “we’re working on finding a way to get DK more involved”.

  11. BobbyK

    There have been many years of bad drafts (and a terrible big trade) that have gotten us to this point, but I will say this: the 2020 draft is not among the bad drafts. It’s a good looking draft class.

    Granted, many of us here wanted Jonathan Taylor in the 1st round and that would have been better but the top 3 picks look good now. Brooks is a solid player. He may suck a bit in coverage but he’s a great attacking tackler. Taylor might not be the brightest bulb, but he can get to the QB better than anyone we have. That might not be saying much, but at least he’s on the field and making life difficult for opposing tackles on 3rd and long. That’s worth something. Damien Lewis is a good NFL guard. Alton Robinson is a good use of a 5th round pick (who we all know should play more) and even though a guy like Freddie Swain isn’t good – he’s a good 6th round pick. A somewhat solid WR/PR who, most importantly, is one of those cheap guys on a rookie contract that make him more valuable than the Benson Mayowa’s of the world (not good, but get millions to not be very good). Parkinson has shown us nothing and I don’t particularly care for DeeJay Dallas but overall I think we can look at the draft and say it’s well above average.

    But when you trade for a Jamal Adams, you’re pretty much guarantees the next few years of drafting will suck. It’s not that you’ve traded a singular 1st round pick for Adams, but the fact that the 1st rounder could have either been used to:

    1. Draft a cheap player.

    2. Used to trade down to acquire other cheap players.

    But, NO, they have to not only trade the picks but pay a heck of a lot of money to Adams which prevents taking that $17 million per year into giving it to a stud FA OL of some kind.

  12. cha

    Ian Rapoport
    The #Panthers fired OC Joe Brady.

    • swedenhawk

      Apologies for reposting, Curtis.

    • Big Mike

      The finger of blame being pointed by Rhule.

  13. Trevor

    Watching Bryce Young direct the vaunted Georgia defense yesterday and excel on 3rd down conversion was a breath of fresh air as a Hawks fan in need of some QB options in the draft.


    Trade Russ to the Giants for (2)1st Round Picks this Year and a 1st in 2023 + Daniel Jones

    Trade DK for a 3rd this year and 1st + 3rd in 2023

    Trade Adams for whatever the hell you can get

    Cut Bobby this off season as a cap hit


    Use this years draft capital to add young talent to the roster with a focus on the OL / DL. Use the 1st round picks from the Giants to draft an LT and Edge Rusher while maybe even adding more draft capital via trade backs.

    Daniel Jones would be the stater next year and perhaps he shows some talent but in all likelihood the team would be in complete rebuild and playing in the NFC a definite candidate for the #1 pick.

    Target Bryce Young as your QB of the future in the 2023 draft and continue adding talent around him in the draft as well as free agency in 2023 as the Hawks should have a crazy amount of cap space.

    Would it suck that the Hawks would be dreadful yes but at least it would put them on a path going forward to be legit Super Bowl contenders. I don’t see that ever happening with Russ who is a very good not great NFL QB and needs an elite roster / defense to have any chance at playoff success.

    • Roy Batty

      I don’t see any new GM or coach trading Adams until after 2022.

      His cap hit is only $9.11 million next year, but his dead cap is $16 million. Relative to his contract, as a whole, that is a small cap hit.

      In 2023 that cap hit balloons to $18.11, but his dead cap is reduced to $12 million. Much more palatable if he is offloaded. You actually save $6.11 million by cutting him, as opposed to 2022, where you are paying him more to be elsewhere.

      Unless he severely regresses and starts becoming a locker room cancer, he is a Hawk next year.

    • Big Mike

      Bryce Young will be the likely #1 overall pick so………..

      • Peter

        Well if pc stays…..there’s always a chance

        • Big Mike

          Good point

    • Peter

      I get where you are coming from with some of this.

      Young was good on third down but let’s be real….

      He wasn’t that accurate and when you look at the stat line it reads a bit like good Wilson. Three Wr’s averaging over 10 yards. One over 16 yards. And one guy catching it just 7 times for plus 180 yards. That’s a lot of ‘”bombs away,” offense.

      Maybe it is time to move on. Or….maybe it’s tome to find a coach/coordinator who can find ridiculous openings in a formidable defense like saban/obrien did yesterday.

    • BobbyK

      If you want the #1 overall pick in ’23, then you better not add good young talent. Use those picks for future picks to ensure you suck enough to get the #1 overall pick in ’23. Then load up.

      Trevor Lawrence has disappointed a little bit this year. I still think he’s going to be a good one. But I’d trade Wilson for Lawrence if given the opportunity. Jacksonsville has got to be sick of sucking and they obviously need change. Again.

  14. swedenhawk

    Joe Brady out as OC in Carolina. Wow.

  15. CHaquesFan

    Nice Rob, congratulations on being on BBC national radio!

  16. Big Mike

    Watching the Chargers v. Bengals and the LA RB fumbled and a Bengal was trying to run it back for a TD until Justin Herbert tackled him to keep him from scoring. It was a better tackle than most I’ve seen for the Seahawks’ D players this year. Now he is 6’6″ 250 but it was also a near perfect form tackle, from a QB. Bad assed

  17. AlaskaHawk

    A major injury for SF is a bad way to start a game.

    It’s hard not to be negative about todays game. But who knows? Will Peterson even play? Pete isn’t known for putting new guys in right away.

  18. Hawks4life

    Well at least DK got a catch lol, what a terrible way to start. But what play by Homer

  19. Sea Mode

    LOL, wow!

    ST is literally the only thing we have going for us this season!

  20. AlaskaHawk

    DAmn , what a play!!! Big Balls Pete, you can’t fire him now! Sign Homer up for a 6 year contract ASAP.

  21. pdway

    well that was fun….

    No wonder it caught the niners off-guard….I was shocked off my couch….

    • Sea Mode

      PC setting that up by punting on every 4th and 1 this season….

      • pdway

        playing the loooooong game…

  22. Blitzy the Clown

    SF defense is weakest in the middle with Warner and Greenlaw out but Seattle opens the game by attacking the perimeter?

    Good on the fake punt call and excellent execution, but if not for that trick play, that’s another 3 and out to open a game.

    • Big Mike

      Really good point

  23. Matt

    Seahawks Twitter: “Russell sucks and never throws short passes.”

    Seahawks Twitter: “No not those types of short passes.”

    I find myself despising this group of people.

    • Tanner

      Regardless of the outcome of the game, I just wanna see russ ball out to shut these people up. There are seriously people calling him a locker room cancer lol

  24. Sea Mode

    Haha, the perfect welcome to AP to our OL…

  25. Blitzy the Clown

    Pocic just destroyed there.

  26. Hawks4life

    We use far to many screen passes

  27. Sea Mode

    Story of our season: whenever it looks like we might be gaining any positive momentum, shoot ourselves in the foot.

  28. AlaskaHawk

    It was fun while it lasted! This whole best turnover rate in the league is just proof that the stats don’t tell you everything or even very much about the Seahawks. This team sucks to the core.

  29. Paul Cook

    Our offense sucks beyond comprehension. Then we get an amazing fake punt play that turn into a TD. Then a defensive 3 and out stop, then back to the offense for a fumble that quickly results in a SF TD.

  30. Troy

    3 drives and nothing for this PATHETIC offense.

    • Roy Batty

      As much as I wanna see a good screen pass, 5 bad screen passes is not helping satiate my need.

  31. Mick

    Peterson looks like a complete waste of time.

    • Sea Mode

      Shocker, right…?

  32. Hawks4life

    3rd and short….yeah let’s throw a terrible pass down the field. Why look for a easy completion in the middle

    • Troy

      There is nothing easy for this offense

    • Matt

      I’ve never seen a more poorly designed offense except for may UW 2021. It’s just atrocious. OL can’t block. QB struggling. Our 6’4” WR gets manhandled by small corners. Just a joy to watch.

  33. Blitzy the Clown

    Fumbles on consecutive possessions 🤦🏻‍♂️

    At least Dickson is on his game. All hail Special Teams!

    • Sea Mode

      Maybe we should just try fake punts on the first 3 downs? Could it really be worse than this offense right now…?

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Couldn’t hurt

  34. Chris Banta

    Russ locked on do from the second that ball was snapped

  35. Paul Cook

    Typical Hawk offense. Three nothing-burgers in a row.

  36. Hawks4life

    Great play by Bobby now can we please capitalize on this with a methodical short drive

    • Hawks4life

      Well who didn’t see this coming lmfao

  37. Sea Mode

    Good ole Jimmy G for ya

  38. AlaskaHawk

    Hmm our offense is moving backwards.

    • Troy

      The defense gifts the offense great field position and look what happens. This offense is trash.

  39. Ashish

    Get ready for how good is Bobby Wagner?

    • Troy

      Give the guy credit for making a play instead of trying to fit the narrative around here.

      • Matt

        Lol – ok bud.

        No other MLB in the NFL is making that type of play. I mean…who could
        Intercept a pass thrown right at them…with no one within 3 yards of him. Impossible, spectacular play.

        • Troy

          Pretty spectacular compared to what this pathetic offense is doing, BUD!

          • Matt

            Great response Troy – yes, I think the offense is amazing, bud.

            • Troy

              Likewise to you. My comment was to give him credit for making a play. I didn’t say it was spectacular or impossible. You said that sarcastically back at me. Have a good day.

              • Matt

                You brought up “the narrative.” That’s why I responded rudely. Bobby has sucked. He was gifted an INT. I’m glad he made the play.

                The whole team sucks. I’m done doing the offense versus defense thing that apparently has taken over Seahawk fandom.

  40. AlaskaHawk

    Shouldn’t there be a penalty for two linemen landing on top of Wilson???

  41. Chris Banta


  42. Paul Cook

    2nd and 43…LOLOLOLOL…I don’t think I’ve seen that before.

  43. Sea Mode

    2nd and 43. Lovely.

    • Sea Mode

      Watch us convert this 3rd and 32…

  44. AlaskaHawk

    That field goal was like Pete Carroll at the urinal – wide and to the right.

    • 206


    • bmseattle

      and short.

  45. Ashish

    Its so pathetic..

  46. Chris Banta

    This team is so bad

  47. Roy Batty

    So far, the most entertaining game they’ve been in for quite a long time.


    • Sea Mode

      Agree. Nothing to lose.

      • Roy Batty

        The Hawks are like an FCS team playing an SEC team. Just running around, looking pumped, and not doing much

  48. Paul Cook

    Nothing again. They went backwards…

  49. Chris Banta

    Our offensive line is so bad it’s hard to do anything on offense

  50. Big Mike

    Nice coverage peacock. You’re only a step and a 1/2 behind a fullback

    • Olyhawksfan

      He immediately pointed to a teammate after the play. That probably happens a lot

  51. Blitzy the Clown

    Ridiculously obvious hold on Mone on that missed pass to Juszczyk

  52. Roy Batty

    Adams WHIFF!

  53. bmseattle

    nice almost tackle by Adams there.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      After totally misdiagnosing the play from the start

      • Big Mike

        Just a reminder, 2 1sts, a 3rd, a starting safety and 17.5 million dollars per year.
        Good job Pete

  54. Big Mike

    I don’t know maybe it’s just me but I would think on 3rd and 2 you would kind of key on George Kittle

  55. Roy Batty

    I’m gonna go ahead and predict another screen pass-deep bomb-rush up the gut combo coming from Russ.

    Then a punt.

    Then a penalty.

    Then a shot of Pete’s mouth hanging open.

    • Hawks4life

      I’d bet the house on that

      • Roy Batty

        Damn. No shot of Pete slick-jawed.

  56. Matt

    There are real life people that actually hang their hat on pretending this defense is really good.

    Man this team just sucks, all around.

  57. pdway

    jesus our offense is bad. i am having a hard time understanding the regression even from earlier in the season.

    i severely overestimated our O-line too….they are terrible right now.

    I don’t really know anything to say other than they need a complete refresh….

    • Matt

      Oh I think it’s real easy –

      Schematically awful
      OL can’t block
      QB struggling, playing scared, while coming off injury
      No Run Game
      Our stud 6’4” WR plays like he’s Wes Welker, just not as tough

      • pdway

        i mean, it’s crazy right? they look like an expansion team. how have we sunk this f-ing low.

        god Pocic is terrible, Curhan too..

        • Matt

          It’s wild.

          Completely broken. I mean irreparably. You have to replace the HC, OC, and probably 8 guys on offense.

  58. Paul Cook

    I’ve just about run out of things to say about this team. How bad can an offense be? It’s historically bad now.

    • Hawks4life

      3rd and 24 in a matter of seconds

    • pdway

      unreal man…

      not much fun to watch your team in this state.

    • Ashish

      Hope and Pray last game for Pete

  59. Big Mike

    2 seconds before he was sacked. Plenty of time come on Russ
    End sarcasm

  60. Blitzy the Clown

    Ethan Pocic is bloody awful

  61. Sea Mode

    2nd and 19. Let’s run Penny up the middle behind Pocic.


  62. Ashish

    Pocic is not even trying to block. Our coaches are blind or have no knowledge of football.

    • Roy Batty

      Al title from column A.

      And a little from column B.

  63. Mick

    If you throw 5 kids from college OLs together, they can’t look as bad as this.

    • Ashish

      I double down, even 4 can do better job

  64. dand393

    Well if the offence keeps going like this rest of the year which it will we are going to have to trade picks with Wilson just so another team will take on his contract

  65. Chris Banta

    If fans quit going to the games Jodi Allen might be forced to make some changes. Otherwise it’s likely to be status quo next year unless Pete retires.

    • Roy Batty

      If the stands are empty by the middle of the 3rd quarter, that might help, too.

      • Big Mike

        Won’t be empty there will be plenty of 40 niner fans still in the stands

  66. Matt

    Not gonna defend RW – he has been terrible. But I’ll say this, no QB has a chance with this scheme and this OL. It’s atrocious.

    • Paul Cook

      As bad as the Seahawk OL has been at times, I’ve never seen them this bad.

      • pdway

        agree…it’s as bad as i’ve seen. I think the crazy elusive version of Russell masked some of the old lines maybe, but this is as low as we’ve been.

        • Paul Cook

          Prove me otherwise….show me worse…

    • Ashish

      Some plays Russ has to throw the ball but yes Oline is responsible for 80%

  67. Paul Cook

    Is this one of the worst starts for a Seahawk offense ever? I’ve got to put together a play-by-play of each Seahawk offensive play just to remind myself later of how bad it was.

  68. Chris Banta

    Russ is looking she’ll shocked because of this offensive line

  69. 206

    I’m surprised to not hear more boo birds out after that series

    • SeaTown

      Boo birds? The place is full of 49er fans.

      • Peter

        Don’t know about now but santa clara used to have a ton of hawks fans

        • Peter

          Sorry meaning both teams typically would travel well to each field

      • 206

        Well there’s an explanation

  70. McZ

    What a sh**show.

  71. Roy Batty

    Jamal Adams to be burned deep in 5, 4, 3,…

  72. Blitzy the Clown

    Wow they found a way to get Robinson on the field, and dontcha know he made a tackle.

    • bmseattle

      quick! get him out of the game!

  73. Chris Banta

    At this point he Robinson should start the rest of the year so you can properly evaluate him.

  74. pdway

    I know i’m preaching to the choir here, but I don’t know how anyone can watch the team perform like this – on both sides of the ball – and not conclude that management changes are needed.

  75. Chris Banta

    I’m not sure if it’s true or not but there are rumors Jodi Allen is not happy

  76. Roy Batty

    Jesus Niners. Just throw it to Kittle every play. You’d be up by 28 at this point.

  77. Roy Batty

    How in the hell is Freddie Swain now thee number one.

  78. AlaskaHawk

    One thing about Jody Allen and Pete Carroll.

    I”ve met several charismatic leaders and they sound quite convincing, even when they don’t accomplish anything they said they would. She may very well think he deserves another chance. Or that he could be moved up in the organization.

    • Ashish

      Please Pete was done 4 years back. But this is it.

    • pdway

      Pete moving up in the org might still be OK….make him a figurehead, as long as we bring in a new HC.

  79. Ashish

    Hawks RBs are so bad that Peterson looks good

  80. Roy Batty

    3rd and 3 and that’s the play they call.

    Bottom of the barrel, folks.


  81. AlaskaHawk

    That was a decent long ball from Wilson. Even if Lockett couldn’t haul it in, the play didn’t fool the 49ers a bit.

    • Big Mike

      Excellent throw put it where only he could catch it and yes niners weren’t fooled one iota

  82. Sea Mode

    No, pls. Not Lockett

  83. Blitzy the Clown

    Because if the first backwards pass doesn’t fool ’em, the second one definitely will 🙄

    SF’s safety wasn’t fooled, though he did incidentally trip Lockett to prevent the reception.

    • Hawks4life

      I about lost my mind with that play

  84. Blitzy the Clown

    I give AP credit for his effort today

  85. Blitzy the Clown

    JFC this half seems interminable. There’s still 6 minutes left.

  86. Sea Mode

    Delay of game on a TO. Comical.

  87. Robbie

    Delay of game after a time out to prevent the delay of game is unacceptable.

    • bmseattle

      it’s also hilarious.

      Really, this kind of thing isn’t anything new for this team. when we were a good team, we could live with it.

  88. Hawks4life

    How fucking pathetic, delay of game out of a TO. Followed by the best throw and catch of the year.

    • Big Mike

      When he has time. Ruds looking better this week for sure.

      • Hawks4life


  89. HOUSE

    The season has been brutal and this game continues to show it. Things that will need to change:

    Coaching: Pete has gotta go at this point. I think Norton had overstayed his welcome. New head coach has gotta be much more offensive-minded.

    QB: I hate to say it, but Russ looks checked out. I know he was injured and I still don’t think he’s 100%. I don’t even think a new offensive-minded coach keeps him around. I see a trade happening and us maybe looking at a stopgap/competition for 2022 unless the new leadership LOVES a rookie.

    RB: Carson is injured YET AGAIN… While talented, there’s no reliability in a RB that can’t play more than 10 games and then we’re scrambling the others games.

    WR/TE: Lockett/DK/Swain/Eskridge seems to be our only solid position on the entire team. TE will need to be addressed again in the mold of the new offense.

    OL: outside of contracts for Jackson and Lewis, the whole damn OL needs to be blown up.

    DL: Needs a shot in the arm as well. Too many rotational type guys.

    LB: Wagner can’t make $20M next season. I have always loved Bobby, but something has gotta happen with that #. If he’s cut/traded, I think Brooks slots over to MLB and then we need an outside LB.

    CB: We need to find a star… Reed/Jones/Brown are good complimentary pieces, but none are a TRUE #1.

    S: I’m pretty sure Diggs is gone. Can Neal play there? Adams is a mess and I wish we could walk away from him. Blair was hurt once again and while he’s shown some flashes, I’ve never seen him healthy.

    So many holes/questions with little draft equity. A Russ trade creates some draft picks in a big way, but creates a HUGE question mark. The team is shifting and doing it as fast as possible is the ONLY way to do it!

  90. Blitzy the Clown

    Call a T/O to prevent the delay of game, only to get called for a delay of game is peak 2021 Carroll Seahawks

    • Paul Cook

      That is peak PC. LOL

    • bmseattle

      let’s not pretend this is something that suddenly reared it’s ugly head this year.
      Terrible delay of games have been a constant during Pete’s tenure.

      • Paul Cook

        He’s never been a good in-game coach. Not his strength.

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Hey man don’t be mellowing my harsh 😂

  91. 206

    I don’t care about the great play to DK, that was pathetic clock management

  92. Paul Cook

    A delay of game after a time out. WTF!

    DK actually held on to it. Nice pass and catch.

  93. Chris Banta

    That’s Seahawks football, 2 bad plays bailed out by a fortunate deep pass

  94. Kyle R

    I’ve seen monkey shit fights at a zoo more organized and effective than this offense.

  95. Chris Banta

    He 92 hawks offense was more effective than this one

    • 12th chuck

      how sad is that? I wonder if they want to move the team to london

  96. Big Mike

    Looks like the 40 niners are exploiting a weakness in Seattle’s coverage when they throw to kittle. I wonder who that weakness is?

    • Hawks4life

      Couldn’t be the Best in the Nation could it???

    • bmseattle

      Well, not Adams or Wagner, surely.
      They both make too much money to be bad.

  97. AlaskaHawk

    I wonder if 49er fans go as nuts about Garoppolo flubs as we do about the Seahawks offense?

    • Big Mike

      I’m sitting next to a 49 ers fan and he said hes numb to it

    • AlaskaHawk

      Is that from Garoppolo or the multiple vodka tonics?

  98. Paul Cook

    If the 9ers lose this game, they will have to be thinking to themselves “we lost to these guys?”

  99. Blitzy the Clown

    Was that Ford with a wicked spin move off the snap to pressure JimmyG?

  100. 206

    Not to get nostalgic, but I do miss Kam and Earl laying the boom. Adams best hits wouldn’t even make it on the highlight reel

  101. Hawks4life

    So the hawks wasted all 3 timeouts lol

  102. Sea Mode

    What a comedy of mismanagement. All these wasted timeouts are just the icing on the crap cake.

  103. 12th chuck

    seattle starting to miss manage time outs, which means this might be a close game?

  104. Chris Banta

    Was Daryl Taylor out covering the slot we?

  105. Roy Batty

    Looks like Shanghai read my earlier comment.

    Just give it to Kittle and it’s game over.

    • Roy Batty


  106. pdway

    Kittle is good, but also I’ve always kind of hated him.

    • Roy Batty

      His photo on his stat line makes him look like the bassist for a crappy 70’s band.

  107. AlaskaHawk

    Kittle = Built like Metcalf and catches like Lockett. We need a couple of players like him on the team.

    • Peter

      If only DK could be that. Athletic freak of nature who could almost be unstopable

    • 12th chuck

      I would much rather have an offensive line that is mid-tier league wide. no time to pass, can’t run the ball

  108. Hawks4life

    Didn’t get the best look but was Reed being held on that Kittle TD

  109. Sea Mode

    DJ Reed held

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Open and obvious

  110. Blitzy the Clown

    Amazing play by Kittle. Sad play by Wagner who used to make that kind of tackle routinely.

  111. Big Mike

    Who was it here that said just keep throwing the ball the kittle?

  112. AlaskaHawk

    Okay last series before the half. Lets call a fake punt!

  113. Paul Cook

    Not to be redundant, but we have no timeouts now.

    • bmseattle

      that doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t call one, tho.

  114. Hawks4life

    So a mismanagement of 3 TOs leaves us with nothing at the end of the half

    • Hawks4life

      As we attack the middle of the field with 5 yard throws lol

    • Peter

      Timeouts like draft picks are only important if you think they are

  115. Roy Batty

    Who the hell is Dee Skridege?

    • Roy Batty

      You, yeah. Now I remember.

      D. Eskridge.

  116. Blitzy the Clown

    Just a leetle high by Wilson on that throw to DK

  117. AlaskaHawk

    Whooo Hoooo!!

  118. Blitzy the Clown

    That’ll do rookie. That’ll do.

  119. pdway

    well, credit where it’s due…nice drive. good to see Russ getting the ball out of his hands quickly, and not just out to the sidelines.

    This has the feel of a crazy game….

  120. Big Mike

    Must be Geno time

    • Peter

      Almost spit out my drink on that!!

  121. Paul Cook

    I can’t believe we scored. But it’s in the Hawks playbook. Wait till the very end of the half or the game, and then play offense like it matters.

  122. Robbie

    If we could play our two min offense all the time that would be great.

    • Sea Mode

      And get helped out by bonehead 15yd penalties.

      • Robbie

        30 yards in penalties sure did help 🙂 haha

  123. AlaskaHawk

    Good to see them finish the half strong. Even if half the yardage was from ruffing the passer calls. Nice TD throw to the rookie, we been without our top draft pick for too long this year.

  124. Peter

    Now all we need is for one player out of 11 to stop george kittle and this might be winnable.

    • Peter

      121 out of 157 yards and half of the catches for the niners. What’s belichick always banging on about, take away the best player. This game anywats the niners 6-5 record seems as weak as our 3-8 record.

    • 12th chuck

      putting peacock on coverage isn’t laughable anymore. It’s disgusting

      • Mick

        Ryan Neal on Kittle would be the better idea, I think.

        • Peter

          100% it is a better idea

      • Peter

        Trying to stay optimistic but i just wat that guy gone cap hit or otherwise.

  125. AlaskaHawk

    That first half was entertaining in the sloppy play. These two teams were meant for each other.

    • pdway

      so true….

  126. Paul Cook

    We have to post the log of our first 5 offensive possessions. That was epically bad.

  127. Paul Cook

    This effing Jackson Pollack game.

  128. Blitzy the Clown

    Our special teams are really, really…special

  129. Paul Cook

    Great 3rd down slant pass to DK. More of that please.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Came here to ask why they can’t run that more often

  130. Peter

    I guess we’re a west coast offense now

  131. Big Mike

    Somehow that has to be Wilson’s fault right?

  132. Paul Cook

    OH EFF ME!

  133. AlaskaHawk

    Everett = you got to make that catch. Wilson has been playing decent today, lots of catchable passes.

  134. Roy Batty

    Sooooo, maybe bench Everett and play Parkinson now?


  135. Blitzy the Clown


  136. Robbie


  137. Ashish

    Seriously what else can go wrong

  138. Sea Mode


  139. Hawks4life

    Time to bench Everett? Fumble and cost us a TD on a perfect throw and easy catch for a TD….

  140. pdway

    what a bizarro game this is…

  141. 206

    Remember when Everett was on the Rams a couple years ago and dropped whiffed the pass, knocking it to Diggs. That was oddly familiar

  142. Big Mike

    Wilson had to have thrown that too hard right?

  143. Chris Banta

    We actually looked like a real offense there for a while. Because of that play we will probably start just throwing bombs now.

  144. Roy Batty

    Who the hell is Carlos Dunlap?

  145. Blitzy the Clown

    YES! Dunlap too!

  146. Peter

    Guess we can’t have anything nice. Also everett can go next year as well. Pointless signing

    • Big Mike

      Waste of cash just like Greg Olsen

  147. Sea Mode

    What an insane game.

  148. Hawks4life

    This is one exciting game I’ll say that

  149. Robbie

    Hell yeah Dunlap!

  150. Paul Cook

    This game is existing in some warped parallel universe.

    • pdway

      i know….am kind of starting to enjoy myself…

  151. pdway

    this is already the craziest game of the year…and there’s 10 mins left in the 3rd

  152. Blitzy the Clown

    Btw, Curhan >> > Fuller

    • pdway

      his heads-up tackle on the INT, saved a ton of yards, and kinda led to the safety

  153. Roy Batty

    This is such a classic Hawks-Niners game.

    Carzy, up and down, anything and everything happening.

    Love it.

  154. Blitzy the Clown

    Russ starting to look like Russ

  155. Roy Batty

    Penny with a Freddie Jackson block!

    • Hawks4life

      Honestly that was the best play of his career

      • Roy Batty

        Jackson chipping JJ Watts thigh is pure cinematic gold.

        The bruise Watt showed off the next day was gruesome.

  156. Paul Cook

    Tyler Lockett is our MVP this year. Is there any debate on this?

    • Hawks4life

      Not from me

  157. Blitzy the Clown

    OMG Penny just made a sack saving block!

    We are officially in the Twilight Zone

    • Big Mike

      Fantastic block but now hurt

    • Bmseattle

      He got hit in the head.
      Hopefully not hurt

  158. AlaskaHawk

    Just seeing Eskridge out there contributing is a refreshing change. and Penny too.

  159. Sea Mode

    Had Norman beat. Throw got away from Russ.

    • pdway

      yep – had him

      terrible pass pro on that 3rd down, Curhan just toasted.

  160. Blitzy the Clown

    Bosa wasn’t offsides?

  161. Bmseattle

    Didnt Bosa jump there?

  162. Paul Cook

    Has anybody ever noticed that when RW frantically changes the play at the last second at the line of scrimmage that it’s almost always to a run up the middle?

    • Big Mike


      • Paul Cook

        Thank you. I thought it was just me.

    • Bmseattle

      I wonder if any of the teams we play have figured that out, too?🤔

  163. Roy Batty

    Win or lose, I have been entertained.

    It’s been soooo long.

    • Big Mike

      Well said

    • AlaskaHawk

      It’s been an interesting game!

      • pdway

        this game just keeps giving and giving….. 🙂

  164. Chris Banta

    Offensive line needs to be a priority next year!

    • pdway

      to me, it’s the top priority full-stop

  165. Sea Mode

    Dunlap gets sack for safety. Next drive: put in Green.

    I don’t get it.

    • 206

      Right? I don’t know what’s been going on with Dunlap all season

  166. Blitzy the Clown

    Nice play by Mone all the way out to the sideline

  167. 206

    I like Mone. Keep him

    • pdway

      agree – he’s turned himself into an nfl player.

  168. Roy Batty

    Diggs is a pick machine.

    And still no extension.


  169. Bmseattle

    So, if Adams is worth 17 million/year…hiw much is Diggs worrh?

    • 206

      34 million

      • Bmseattle

        I’d rather have Diggs at 34, plus two 1st round draft picks, than Adams at 17

  170. Paul Cook

    Praise the Lord for Jimmy G.

  171. Roy Batty

    Ummm, how about a slant over the middle Russ?

    • Roy Batty

      Russ is officially back to normal if he has his Vulcan mind-meld back with Lockett.

  172. AlaskaHawk

    Now we are cooking! Good play.

  173. Blitzy the Clown

    McLovin it!

  174. Sea Mode

    V12, all he does….

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Miss V12

  175. Blitzy the Clown

    Nobody drops the football right into the receiver’s breadbasket like Wilson

  176. pdway

    enjoying the moment. what a strange team and game…. Niners just bring it out in us I guess.

    nice to see the offense looking quick and decisive, and a good looking TD throw.

    fun to see the crowd back into it too.

  177. AlaskaHawk

    You want a soggy 49er defense with that??

  178. Robbie

    This is the most entertained I’ve been all year (prior to opening day in Indy)

  179. Canadian Hawk

    Ya…#3 ain’t going anywhere.

  180. Chris Banta

    It’s funny when Russ is decisive and gets the ball out of his hands our offense gets in a ryrhym and looks good

  181. Big Mike

    Nobody in the NFL adjusts to the ball on flight like Tyler

  182. Troy

    As a Rus critic the last year…this is vintage Rus, good accuracy, getting the ball out quick and with accuracy (mostly), not a surprise it comes as a result of our running game being better as well. Probably a combo of better running game / his finger is better / WR+TE getting open. Only that egregious Everett play is an INT but that isn’t on Wilson at all.

    • AlaskaHawk

      This is the best I’ve seen Wilson play in a years time.

      • Troy

        Agreed, by far his best performance. He has carried the offense today, and put balls in spots where his guys can win. Actually enjoyable to watch him play, and surprise we are actually converting 3rd downs! It’s like a different team today.

    • Big Mike

      He’s had better pass pro overall too. Not great, but better.

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Curhan is still really raw but he’s clearly better than Fuller.

    • pdway

      yeah, the running game has always been so damned important for the team’s and RW’s success. I wonder if we’ve underplayed the significance of Carson not being around.

  183. Roy Batty

    Pay Diggs.

    • Blitzy the Clown


    • Bmseattle

      Problem is, Diggs can show and stats are better than Adam’s.
      He’s not going to give us any discounts.

    • 12th chuck

      jimmy missed a wide open 81, not sure if it was Diggs guy or not, it would’ve went for a td

  184. Paul Cook

    Jordan Brooks really hits. So does Diggs.

  185. Blitzy the Clown


    • Big Mike

      Mmmm, knee down sadly

      • Blitzy the Clown


        Stupid refs

      • Paul Cook

        It looked like a tie to me. Need a closer look.

  186. Roy Batty

    God almighty this is such a Hawks-Niners game!

  187. Sea Mode

    Looked more like a dirty hit to the head from Taylor on that quick replay.

  188. Paul Cook

    Does tie go to the fumble? That’s what it looked like to me on first glance.

  189. pdway

    we can’t decline that penalty?

    • Roy Batty

      Technically, the ay never happened.


  190. AlaskaHawk

    Hmm that late snap screwed the Seahawks. Almost like the ref waited to see how the 49ers play would occur before throwing the flag.

    • Bmseattle

      Refs are too honorable to ever do such a thing!😲

  191. Roy Batty

    I want a Will Dissly seam route right now. The Niners are hurting at LB.

  192. Paul Cook

    Pre-snap penalty

  193. Sea Mode

    I thought Penny’s best runs came running on the edges. So why the heck does he run up the middle into his own OL’s backside every run?

  194. Paul Cook

    We HAVE to effing score now. We have to take control of the game while we have the chance.

  195. Roy Batty

    Brown looks sooo old.

  196. Paul Cook

    Anoterh quick hit to the middle of the field. Good job.

  197. Blitzy the Clown

    I didn’t even realize Adams was out

    • AlaskaHawk

      With a shoulder injury Adams is probably out for the rest of the season. Don’t cry !!!

      • Roy Batty

        Let’s not become NFC East-type of fans.

    • Sea Mode

      I did: there’s nobody getting beat in coverage and then jumping around clapping and pointing at other DBs…

  198. Chris Banta

    When Russ holds the ball bad things happen

  199. pdway

    O-line coming up small again, right when we need them to step up

    • Paul Cook

      We like close hear attack games too much. Therefore we have to punt rather than go down the field for a game controlling score.

  200. Bmseattle

    Adams has a shoulder injury, huh?
    I wonder if it’s the same one he hurt last year?
    Shoulders can be chronic.😬

  201. 206

    #33 is out, who cares.

  202. Roy Batty

    Start rolling the pocket.

    Russ can’t take much more.

    • pdway

      i know. And one thing you could just never ever question about Russ….his ability to take a punch. he’s been a tough player his whole career.

  203. Blitzy the Clown

    Dickson is so money

  204. Sea Mode

    Can we just watch our ST all game, please!

  205. Paul Cook

    We need Jimmy G to do his Jimmy G thing now more than ever.

  206. Chris Banta

    Could you imagine Dickson with the l.o.b it would have been a huge advantage

    • 206

      Jon Ryan was pretty darn good!

  207. Blitzy the Clown

    Not a reception

    • AlaskaHawk

      yES HE dropped it when he hit the ground.

  208. Sea Mode

    That’s an incompletion IMO

  209. Paul Cook

    You have to complete the catch, right? If so, no go.

  210. Poli

    I hate how that Everett drop counts as an INT for the QB

  211. pdway

    that’s a successful challenge for Pete Carroll. alert the media.

  212. Blitzy the Clown

    I loathed Jim Harbaugh when he was the 49ers HC. But I freaking love him as Michigan’s HC.

    What’s up with that?

    • 12th chuck

      man, was thinking the same thing. If the hawks fire Carrol, would it be worth a run at Harbaugh as head coach?

  213. Roy Batty

    Who the hell is Rashaad Penny?

  214. Paul Cook

    Bailed out! Now make something of it.

  215. Roy Batty

    I say again, who the hell is Rashaad Penny?

    • AlaskaHawk

      He’s a blind squirrel. Enjoy him until he hurts his paw again.

      • STTBM

        +1! Comment of the Year!

  216. AlaskaHawk

    yee Haw, Penny’s best run of the season!

  217. pdway

    that’s where Penny teases us….he’s got playmaking ability, no doubt

  218. Sea Mode

    Harlan makes this game so much better!

    • TomLPDX

      Love Kevin Harlan as a commentator.

  219. Robbie

    A success screen pass?? TO PENNY?? What planet is this!

    • 206

      Great play, but if he got tackled running laterally along the first down marker I’d be livid!

  220. Paul Cook

    Best play by Penny in two years.

  221. pdway

    patchwork line out there now man…first look at Forsythe. big dude.

  222. Hawks4life

    The saddest thing about penny is we know he can make great plays but they come far and in between… definitely not a starter but if he stayed healthy and we has a decent line he would be a good spark for an offense

  223. Roy Batty

    Please don’t go conservative, Pete.


    • Roy Batty

      I’m gonna faint.

  224. AlaskaHawk

    They put Homer in????? Are they going to fake the punt again?

  225. HOUSE

    That’s the Penny we all hoped for. lol

  226. Hawks4life

    Great call to go for it! Now get the TD!

  227. Troy

    Why couldn’t the offense play like this all the other weeks man…

    • pdway

      i know

      just enjoying the ride today…. 3-8 gives you a certain freedom from the normal stress, I’m noticing.

      • Troy

        Yup, gotta enjoy this for what it is. This has been an entirely different team today.

  228. Blitzy the Clown

    I’m glad Homer picked up the first. But why is he the one to try the conversion?

  229. Roy Batty

    Shoulda kept Homer in.

  230. Hawks4life

    Yikes Everett has had a terrible game

  231. Blitzy the Clown

    wtf Everett

  232. pdway

    give me a break….everett having the worst game a TE has ever had

  233. AlaskaHawk

    OMG = The CArdiac Hawks in action —– Everetttt you messed up again.

  234. Roy Batty


    Everett. Had to be Everett.

    Way to get conservative and cute Pete.


    • pdway

      that wasn’t a terrible call. a FG probably ices the game. unreal that Everett coughed it up after having two turnovers today….you’d think he’d be focused on the ONE thing he couldn’t do again.

      • Roy Batty

        Getting cute after calling two conservative runs by a 36 year old RB is not a good call, to me.

        Utilizing your QB’s arm is. The arm that got you down the field in the first place.

    • Big Mike

      Fucking pathetic. 2 fumbles and a dropped TD for an interception. Unreal

  235. IHeartTacoma

    J F C

  236. Paul Cook

    Everett single-handedly giving the game away.

  237. Troy

    Cut Everett holy shit

  238. Robbie Williams

    Everett with his THIRD costly turnover! WOW! Time for the D to step up to bail him out.

  239. Blitzy the Clown

    Why a timeout here? Why?

  240. Paul Cook

    They just can’t effing make things easy. They just can’t.

  241. Hawkster

    How many touches does Everett have today?

  242. Roy Batty

    Is Parkinson a scratch, cuz I still don’t know why Everett is still playing?

  243. Blitzy the Clown

    Inexcusable blown coverage by Neal

  244. Sea Mode

    We need a 3rd Jimmy G moment

  245. Paul Cook

    You had ONE job…don’t fumble.

  246. Hawks4life

    It could be 1st and 20 every fresh set of downs and I still wouldn’t have confidence in this defense

  247. AlaskaHawk

    Jimmy G has too much time back in the pocket.

  248. Blitzy the Clown

    Major miscommunication between Jones and Amadi

  249. Blitzy the Clown

    Seahawks defense giving up chunk plays on this drive

  250. Paul Cook

    I still can’t get over it. The only thing we couldn’t do there near the goal line was fumble the ball.

  251. 206

    Rarely in the game of football can you put all the blame on one person, but today’s game by Gerald is an exception

  252. Roy Batty

    My goodness.

    The refs are doing their job.

    What a nice feeling.

  253. neil

    Giving the ball to Peterson twice from the three yard line just to get him the td record was totally stupid. I knew it was coming when they took Homer out. You would think winning the game would be more important. Priorities I guess if you are PC.

    • pdway

      all they really needed was a FG.

    • AlaskaHawk

      Not as stupid as using your tight end as a running back. At least Peterson held onto the ball.

      • Paul Cook

        They just couldn’t fumble the ball.

    • Jordan E

      Not as dumb as throwing a slant at the 1 yard line… still hurts to this day 😵

  254. Roy Batty

    OK kids.


    Such a classic game.

  255. Blitzy the Clown


  256. pdway

    well this sucks…. they’re probably gonna find Kittle for a TD now.

    and no time left.

  257. Hawks4life

    If I’m the 9ers and I score I’m going for 2 and the win. Why wouldn’t they have the confidence to score on this D

  258. Paul Cook

    Okay. How can we eff this up?

  259. AlaskaHawk

    AHHH the tension builds!!!!

  260. pdway

    OK – f-ing cover Kittle here!!

  261. AlaskaHawk

    Hot Damn – Go Hawks!!!! Go Dunlap!!

  262. pdway

    how sweeeeet it is!!!!!

  263. Blitzy the Clown


  264. Roy Batty

    Such a great game.

    It had it all.

    Thank you Seahawks. This was a much needed pick-me-up.

  265. pdway

    got to hand it to Dunlap…he does have the clutch gene

  266. Hawks4life

    We actually pulled it off! What a disaster and fun game to watch lol

  267. AlaskaHawk

    Got to be top 10 in game wins. What a crazy and satisfying game.

  268. Bmseattle

    I’m inexplicably happy

    • Roy Batty

      I may not like this season and where the team is headed, but I do love this franchise.

      Especially when they do this to the Niners.

  269. Peppapig

    What a game!

  270. Sea Mode

    Well, at least some excitement and a win like the old days. Even better to do it vs. the Niners.

    Offense still sputtered. PC still needs to go. But that was fun.

  271. TomLPDX

    What a fun game! Yeah Seahawks!!!!

    I love games like this. Damn everitt though. He tried to kill us!

  272. Paul Cook

    It’s always great to beat the 9ers.

  273. 12th chuck

    welp, I guess this is the highlight of the season, move over double-punt!

    • Roy Batty

      Rasheed Green’s 2-pointer would like a word.

      • 12th chuck

        that was an awesome play, but to sweep the 9ers during your worst season in over a decade….!

  274. Paul Cook

    Everett got bailed out in a major way today.

  275. Matthew

    Seahawks playoff scenarios? Haha seriously though, much needed. Can’t stand watching this era end in any other way.

  276. pdway

    in good news…Russ looked pretty sharp today. can’t blame him for the plays where the O-line just caved in around him. and he should’ve had 3 TD’s and 0 picks.

    • Hawks4life

      And people have been writing him off as burnt toast

      • Hawk Finn

        Doesn’t mean he’s isn’t. Just slathered him in enough peanut butter to mask it.

        • Hawks4life

          Hes far from burnt toast

    • Paul Cook

      We can’t forget that our offense was HIDEOUSLY bad the first five possessions. It just went from night to day later in the 2nd quarter.

  277. Roy Batty

    Goodnight Everyone.

    That was some fun stuff.

    Comment with you later and tomorrow.

  278. TomLPDX

    Loved seeing D’ Eskridge in the game tonight!

  279. pdway

    i think the lesson for me is that even in a crap season, w a broken team….I can still have a lot of fun watching Seahawks football on Sunday.

    • Paul Cook

      Ditto. Beating a rival at home in an excitingly close game is still pleasurable, in spite of how mind-bogglingly strange and sloppy of a game it was.

      • Matthew

        Felt familiar. Very welcome win.

  280. Palatypus

    I would love to see Michael Dickson punt in these conditions in Buffalo.
