Something to get you in the mood


  1. line_hawk

    I was just watching the video & realized how crazy those teams were. Lynch, Sherman, Thomas, Kam, Wagner, Avril, Wilson, Wright, Baldwin all on the field at the same time.. that truly was a golden age!

    • Doug

      Watching those 50 career-defining plays makes me ask why Buffalo ever let him go. I know Lynch had off-field issues in Buffalo and they drafted another RB (forget who) but still–the Buffalo tape shows a unique talent.

      I really like the decision to bring Lynch back. The “worst” thing that can happen is the Seahawks lose to the Niners and are one and done in the playoffs–Lynch goes out as a Seahawk, the way it always should have been.

      The best case scenario is the stuff Hallmark movies are made of. In any case, I get to wear my Lynch jersey one more time.

  2. Rob Staton

    This LSU vs Oklahoma game. Bloody hell it’s a massacre after three drives.

    Oklahoma are this years ‘fourth team that is only here to make up the numbers’.

    • Rob Staton

      Nice response though.

      • CHawk Talker Eric

        That catch by CeeDee Lamb 👀

        • Paul Cook

          Oklahoma is going to have to score 50 if they want to win this game. LOL

          • CHawk Talker Eric

            Oklahoma won’t win this game. But I can still admire a great play by someone from the losing team.

  3. Troy

    Don’t watch much college football so this is my first watching of Burrow, trying to get a look at the new Bengals starting QB haha

    • Troy

      Holy shit that last Burrow throw on the third down…that dude is magical

      • Troy

        I can’t believe Burrows ball placement on his deep throws, he is literally throwing dimes long range to WRs where it ends up right in there hands…crazy how high his talent level

  4. Volume12

    Someone is gonna get an absute steal on day 2 in LSU WR Justin Jefferson. He might need to be bumped up into the round 1 discussion.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Dude he’s making a case for R1 consideration. He’s totally outshining Lamb, though that’s as much because he’s got Burrow throwing to him instead of Hurts. But still…he looking good

      • Volume12

        Elite seperation skills, makes great adjustments to the ball, and the thing I like most about him that IMO will translate over to Sundays is his ability to exploit holes in a defense/coverage.

    • Volume12

      Draft stock going up.

    • Justin Mullikin

      As Rob has mentioned, there are a lot of talented receivers in this draft. It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out.

  5. CHawk Talker Eric

    Stupid stupid play Radley-Hiles. Talk about letting your teammates down.

    The more I see of CEH and Justin Jefferson, the more I like of both.

  6. Volume12

    Jalen Hurts is not good.

  7. Paul Cook

    Joe Burrow is an incredible story. I’m trying to think of a college QB in a major program who went became so significantly better in almost every facet of the position in such a short amount of time. There are “system” QB’s who suddenly become stat kings, but Burrow’s development was mind-bogglingly explosive. He looks like he could step in and run an NFL offense tomorrow.

  8. SoCal12

    These Burrow throws are something else man. Such a pretty spiral. Bengals must be pretty stoked right now lol.

    • Volume12

      Burrows and Mixon will be such a fun backfield

  9. Kenny Sloth

    Wow Justin Jefferson totally stole the Alex Morgan score counting celebration! How unsportsmanlike

  10. Troy

    Blow out in the second quarter of a playoff game…CFB is crazy

  11. Volume12

    LSU’s K’Lavon Chaisson has been the best defender on the field so far

    • SoCal12

      I wonder when in the draft hes gonna go and where we might consider him. Would be really nice to add his speed which we desperately need.

      • Rob Staton

        But he’s so lean and skinny.

        I like the #18 and the leadership and the quickness he shows. They’re doing a very good job making him a factor here. But he’s a niche rusher at best at the next level. There is absolutely no way he can line up at the LOS and play early downs.

        • SoCal12

          True. Where do you think he might fall to though? At some point the talent should be considered even if he ends up a specialist.

          • Rob Staton

            I don’t know — need to see how he tests. But he’s so light. There’s no sand in his pants. Which is fine if you want to stand him up and play in space. But he’s not a LOS player and for me the Seahawks need more than anything some twitch up front who can play early and often. If they want a niche role player they already have Shaquem. I think Chaisson can play a more expanded role than Shaquem and maybe be more of a SAM who can rush sometimes but this team needs full time, top end pass rush and quality across the DL.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      In this game maybe. But I think Ken Murray might be the best defender at the next level. Too bad he’s not 100% for this game.

  12. Kenny Sloth

    Absolute bloodbath

  13. Volume12

    Next year’s TE class is loaded!

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      You looking at Thaddeus Moss too?

  14. EP

    Should call full time at half time in this game. Get Clemson and Ohio State on early.

    • EP

      I hope they let Burrows pass for 10 TDs

  15. Frank

    Burrow and Jefferson have to be threatening some all time records, or at least Bowl records if they keep up this pace in the 2nd half.

  16. Paul Cook

    Wow. Riley’s got his hands full just to get his team’s psyche patched together for the second half.

  17. Rob Staton

    Burrow = Brady

    The best comp. Doesn’t mean he’ll be Brady. The mental quality and competitive nature of Brady is different level. But if we’re looking for a comp there it is.

    • Troy

      Damn Rob that is quite the compliment. I would say he is more athletic than Brady but other than that very similar. It will be interesting to see if he can turn around the Bengals franchise. They better protect him.

      • Rob Staton

        Much more athletic.

        In fairness to Cincy they spent two R1 picks on their OL recently and traded for Cordy Glenn. Goes to show how hard it is to build a line. And in the league QB’s HAVE to improvise now. Lines are overmatched across the league. Your QB has to be able to create when plays breakdown. HAVE TO.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Not to pick nits, but he’s so much more athletic and creative than Brady, that I don’t think the comparison is apt. For me I like to comp him to Brees, because he can do so much outside of the pocket while being clinically accurate throwing at all levels.

      • Rob Staton

        But you’re falling into the trap of thinking a comp has to be perfect. No two players are the same. You could put up take of Vick and Lamar and find differences. But you’d still make the comp.

        • Kenny Sloth

          No comp is perfect, and I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen another QB navigate the pocket like Brady and Burrow do. Love Burrow’s demeanor. Moment never seems too big for him. Very Rodgers-like blasé type

          Crazy that Lamar is already throwing like veteran Vick with Atlanta Vick’s legs. And maybe more sauce than the position has ever seen.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      I was just about to ask if anyone else thinks Burrow might be the best QB prospect of the last 25 years.

      • Kenny Sloth

        Almost asked that last night.

        Mayfield had some pretty ugly character red flags despite his statistical otherworldliness.

        Luck was a nearly flawless prospect, but Burrows is clearly the more competitive person, from what I know. Sad how it ended up for Luck.

        I’d probably have to call him the surest thing since Manning.

        Trevor Lawrence looks pretty amazing, too, but I get a strange vibe from him. Kind of ‘yippy’ iykwim

        • Justin Mullikin

          Luck was supposed to be the best prospect since Manning. I mean everyone knew he was the #1 pick before his last college season even began (remember suck for Luck campaign). With that said Burrow has all the tools you want. Hopefully he has a long, successful career (except when he is playing the Seahawks).

      • Paul Cook

        The ones that come to the top of my mind at the moment are Elway, Luck, and Trevor Lawrence. It’s one of the reasons why I think Clemson is the only team that can take down LSU, as good as Ohio State may be.

    • John_s

      Will Blackmon said that he saw some Troy Aikman in Burrow. I think that’s a great comparison

  18. line_hawk

    Burrow is good but this game doesn’t show anything. There is no pressure from the dline and every receiver he finds is wide open. I want to see a brawl like what Deshawn Watson & Kyler Murray had to go through vs Alabama in the playoffs. Otherwise, I don’t know how Burrows will do against the extremely physical AFC North.. with TJ Watt in his face all day long.

    • Kenny Sloth

      ….. He already beat Alabama

    • Rob Staton

      Quite aside that Burrow has already gone toe-to-toe with a list of big-time teams including Alabama — how on earth are you saying he’s throwing to only wide open receivers? He’s dropping absolute dimes.

      • Paul Cook

        Absolutely. And some of the open receivers he did hit were a result of his savvy buying of time. That long scramble where he released it near the sideline and hit that receiver was one of the best pass plays I saw all year in college.

        • Kenny Sloth


      • line_hawk

        Again, this is not to criticize him. He deserves to go No 1.

        Having gotten that out, there are areas where he is untested. This game he is sitting in the pocket with no pressure and throwing dimes to wide open receivers. He won’t find either in the nfl. His style is better suited to NFC East or NFC South. In AFC North, he is going to get beaten up.. something, he hasn’t faced this year due to a superior offensive line.

        • Kenny Sloth

          So funny because the narrative is that he won his team over with the way he would take hits and always got back up

          • line_hawk

            Yes narratives are that..narratives. But how many times has he had to lead his team back from big deficits? Or had to will his team when things weren’t going his way? That’s what I meant when I referred to the Watson & Murray playoff games.

            • Paul Cook

              The thing with Burrow is that there’s nothing that suggests he wouldn’t be up to such a task. Everything I’ve seen of him is that he a steely and cool mental makeup. You can see that quality when he’s under pressure. Also, the way he got to where has (just incredible) in itself show his resiliency of character.

              Anyway…ever since my attention was drawn to him early this season, I’ve founf it hard to come up with flaws or concerns in his game or mental makeup.

            • Rob Staton

              And how many times has he walked on water, or cured a disease?

              Etc etc

              Burrow has done everything and more.

            • McZ

              He actually did all of that in 2018. In November 2018, I wrote how high I was about his mental quality. Now, he adds a refined technique, lateral quickness and precision.

              He is a true #1 pick.

        • SoCal12

          Several of those touchdown were into coverage, and hes been scrambling around to create throws. Feels like the ‘sit in pocket and easy throws’ is really stretching it.

  19. Kenny Sloth

    ….. He already beat Alabama

  20. Paul Cook

    As a Husky fan, the gap between Burrow and Eason in the coming draft is Grand Canyon-esque.

  21. Trevor

    Rob I know you are not a fan it I think K’lavon Chaisson is exactly the type of speed rusher the Hawks need. He is a little light similar to Brain Burns but he has the frame to put on size easily. Or he could be utilized in a Bruce Irvin SAM type roll.

    If he tests as expected he will be a top 20 pick up if he is on the board I hope the Hawks give him a look.

    Chaisson in. Rd #1 and Jefferson in Rd #2 would be sweet.

    • Rob Staton

      It’s not a case of being a fan or not. It’s about understanding his role, his fit.

      It’s simply not true that he’s the type of speed rusher Seattle needs. He’s not a speed rusher at the next level. He has the frame of a linebacker. There is absolutely no way you could line him up at DE. He’s not like Brian Burns either. Burns was a gangly, lean player who needed to gain weight to his sleight frame. Chaisson doesn’t have the frame to gain much weight. He looks relatively filled out — he’s just lean.

      If you recall I had Burns in the top-10 of my mocks until I read he was playing in the 220’s. So I dropped him amid fears of him being able to add and retain weight. When he showed up big at the combine, I moved him up a bit again. Chaisson is very different and not the same type of player or prospect.

      If you want someone who can basically do what Shaquem does now or potentially develop over time into a SAM — I’m happy to talk about Chaisson.

      The Seahawks don’t need a part-time rusher though. They need someone with real twitch who can play the edge and get after the QB and make plays.

      They need a Cliff Avril not a part-time tweener.

      And the talk of Chaisson in R1 really has to stop.

      • Trevor

        Agree about needing an Avril type but those type guys are so rare and I dont see one in this draft class.

        I completely disagree about Chiasson and think he is a 1st round lock if he tests well at combine.

        • Eburgz

          I like Chaisson and think he has R1 potential but understand Rob’s concerns about size. I think a guy like Tyler Johnson is much less likely than Chaisson to be picked in round 1 (think rob had Johnson in R1 a couple mocks back). Not silly to consider either one of those guys early though IMO.

          NFL is hungry for speed and disruption on D. He’s honestly pretty thick looking in his lower body, doesn’t look at all like Burns did last year (also not nearly as disruptive and well rounded as a rusher). Seems like he’s already put in a ton of work in the weight room and he’s listed at 6ft 4 and 250 pounds (I bet he is a little smaller than that).

          I think he comps out to someone like Vic Beasley with added coverage skills. The hawks have drafted a similar type early in Bruce Irvin. I think he would similarly be a SAM/LEO which is essentially an every down player. He doesn’t get knocked around the way Shaquem does on Sundays and Queem has not shown anything in coverage and hasn’t looked great in space.

          Not many 260+ pound pass rushers with legit burst lasting to where the hawks are picking (maybe just Gross Matos this year of the high profile guys). You can get Chaisson on the field for a high percentage of snaps because he can cover and looks good in space unlike some other undersized rushers. I like Terell Lewis better though if we’re looking for a pure pass rushing specialist.

          • Rob Staton

            His upper body is tiny. There’s no structural power base. He does his best work moving around the line to find areas where he can stay clean.

            I don’t see Vic Beasley at all. He’s not remotely like Bruce Irvin. Come on guys. The difference is absolutely massive and stark.

            Irvin for two years was the best pure EDGE in college football and would’ve dominated even more had he not been placed in a weird three-man front at WVU. Beasley was an absolute terror as a pure EDGE and had massive, sustained production. Both players tested on an elite level. Both were very happy to engage and win with a repertoire.

            Chaisson neither has the production or, as of yet, the testing ability. The only comp is that they weren’t big guys and neither is Chaisson. That’s it. That really is it.

            • Eburgz

              Yep he lacks the production of Bruce or Beasley. Not as dominant or polished and not perfect comps by any means and mostly based on size and athletic ability comparisons. I think he will test well and he is playing his best ball recently with 4.5 sacks in the last 3 games. Including some clear straight up pass rush wins against those Georgia tackles. He’s won in a variety of ways not just moving around the line and finding open gaps but for sure that’s been part of his production. He looks like a player to me, R1 could be a little rich considering his size he might not hold up on the LOS but I don’t think it’s out of the question.

              • Rob Staton

                I think he’s a long way off R1 and maintain that the two comps are just because he’s smaller. Bruce and Beasley played very differently and had very different careers.

        • Greg Haugsven

          As much as I love coming to this site this is the thing that bothers me most. This is all opinion not fact so none of us are wrong and none of us are right. He may or may not go in the first round but he has the freakish athleticism that teams love to gamble on. Im with you Trevor, I would like him as a Seahawks prospect. Just not sure if PC/JS will or not.

        • Rob Staton

          No problem with disagreeing but Trevor not every player has to be a first rounder if you like them. Chaisson has no characteristics other than some apparent athleticism to warrant any remote talk of round one. He doesn’t have an obvious position, massive production or massive upside.

          Nobody’s saying don’t like the guy. But round one?

          And just because there isn’t an obvious Avril doesn’t mean we need to take someone like Chaisson. They can address that need in free agency.

          • Greg Haugsven

            When I think of Chaisson I think of two former LSU Tigers in Danielle Hunter and Barkevious Mingo. They are all built the same and have a similar athletic profile. All about 6’5″ 250 and all have had low production as Tigers which is strange.One was picked 6 overall and hasnt had a really good career so far and the other was a 3rd rounder who has excelled. Both Hunter and Mingo had similar combine numbers so it will be interesting to see Chaisson’s numbers if he does declare. If I was a betting man he doesnt get selected in round one but could.

            • Rob Staton

              Hunter looked had the frame though and needed to add weight. He was unproductive in college but you could see a pathway to starting. Mingo was legit at LSU for a while. Again, I don’t think these are great comps. Chaisson more like the tweener LB types.

  22. Sea Mode

    Just dropped in on some Twitter clips to see what all the Burrow hype tonight is about. Wow, some unbelievable throws.

    The arm isn’t quite as strong to my eye, but the improv skills in particular might be more comparable to Mahomes than Brady?

    Bengals fans everywhere rejoice… They should probably just draft Jefferson with the first pick of R2 as well and keep them together… Anyway, will also be interesting to see if they can flip Dalton’s last contract year for an extra R2 or R3 pick from someone.

  23. Paul Cook

    Totally psyched for Ohio State and Clemson. A talent-fest. What a match-up.

    • Trevor

      Has the potential to be a classic. Lawrence and the Clemson WR agains Ohio St secondary is going to be so much fun to watch.

      If Feilds is healthy I think Ohio St takes it 35 -30

      • Paul Cook

        I have no idea how it will turn out. I give a slight edge to Clemson because of Trevor Lawrence and Dabo. But nothing would surprise me other than a blowout by either team.

  24. mishima

    …about that OSU ‘holding Burrow/LSU to17’…

    Corvus consumptis

  25. Frank

    I don’t see Mahomes at all, to go really old school I see Burrows as more of a Dan Marino type. I’d agree with a Tom Brady comp as well, but Brady has showed very little potential to be a franchise savior in college, and because all of his plus traits are intangibles always feel like Brady comparisons are kinda back handed compliments saying someone has below average arm, and athleticism. Based on super bowl wins Brady might be the goat, but if I was building a team from the ground up I’d take a Marino over a Brady.

    • Chawk Talker Eric

      Burrow has similar accuracy, awareness and arm strength but he’s much more mobile than Marino ever was.

      I see a bit of BYU Steve Young in him. He’s probably the better passer while Young was more athletic and mobile, but otherwise they have similar capabilities.

    • DC

      Marino? He is like 58 years old. If I’m building a team from the ground up I’d start with a much younger QB.

  26. Volume12

    A hand= an elbow, knee, or foot now?

  27. CHawk Talker Eric

    This OSU defense is impressive.

    • Volume12

      Clemson’s gonna get boatraced. They ain’t played nobody.

      • Volume12

        Ball game!

  28. Denver Hawker

    Is Dobbins the top back in the draft? Looking late R1 to me.

  29. SoCal12

    What a game from Dobbins. Should be a healthy boost to his stock.

  30. Hawks4life

    I dont think I’ve enjoyed watching a college quarterback this much in my life. Joe Burrow is simply outplaying every defensive he plays. His attitude, poise and sheer will to win is a breath of fresh air. Kudos to the kid.

  31. Pran

    Man o man.. what a video. patience, cuts, balance, strength, vision and finish.. feed the crowd with the video in the stadium before the game.m and let beastmode get to work.

  32. Kenny Sloth

    Is Trevor Lawrence gritty enough? Let’s find out together ❤

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Sure looks like it

      • Kenny Sloth

        Man. Imagine if Tom Brady and Peyton Manning could move like Joe Burrow and Trevor Lawrence respectively.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Oh yes he is

  33. Paul Cook

    Wow. 16-14 at the half. Ohio State must be thinking what do we have to do? If you’re Clemson, you’ve wrestled momentum back big time.

    Second half could be thunderdome.

    • Rob Staton

      Feel for Shaun Wade. He has special ability.

      Assuming he declares — and the suggestions are he will — he will be a big riser in the media eventually. I’ve had him in R1 a long time. Can play inside/out. Seahawks probably won’t consider him because he’s a corner who will go early but he’d be ideal as a guy who can operate in the slot and fit outside when needs be.

      • Paul Cook

        He looked good tonight. That whole OSU defense were hitting as hard as the NFL. I’ve seen so much talent today on the field it’s really mind-boggling.

      • Denver Hawker

        Part of me wishes they’d take him- but would probably spell KJ or Kendricks. He’s like Minkah Fitzpatrick in his versatility. Can’t help but wonder if that role is increasing in value in the new NFL.

  34. Paul Cook

    Higgens is back. Huge for Clemson.

  35. line_hawk

    Marcus Peters gets $14M a year. How much does Griffin get?

  36. Paul Cook

    OSU coverage has been brutally good.

  37. Paul Cook

    Clemson takes the lead. Who would have thunk about 45 minutes ago? Football.

  38. SoCal12

    Really interesting game so far. As competitive as advertised. OSU seems to have lost steam after failing to finish. Can’t see either of these teams beating LSU though.

    • Paul Cook

      The Clemson defense came up big in the red-zone. If not, this game is of a different color.

  39. SoCal12

    Okudah showing why he’s the top cornerback in the draft.

    • Paul Cook

      I’m sold. He’s awesome.

  40. Paul Cook

    The hitting in this game is almost surreal. Thunderdome.

  41. Justin Mullikin

    Ohio State dominated for most of a half, showed they belonged, and yet found a way to loose. Wow!

  42. Paul Cook

    Trevor Lawrence…the guy’s a total stud.

  43. SoCal12

    What a game. Great display of talent on both teams. OSU was knocking on the door and then woops. That interceptions going to be haunting Fields for a while. Hope he can use it as motivation next year.

  44. Denver Hawker

    I think this game showed how coaching can trump talent. Swinney had his guys in it for 60 minutes. Both teams were equally matched talent-wise, but Clemson fought back after getting punched in the mouth.

  45. Paul Cook

    That game was my kind of game. Hard hitting. Total grit. In the trenches. Blood sweat and tears. Players laying everything they had out there on the grid iron.


    • McZ

      Decided by a overturned fumble recovery TD… which was very poor officiating.

      • McZ

        Have to add, this crew also officiated ‘Bama-Auburn, and they were a joke, too. If that is the best the SEC has to offer, their officiating must be in utter shambles.

        • Paul Cook

          Ohio State had three chances to get a TD in the red zone in the first half, and then again didn’t punch it in at the end. OSU have themselves to blame for the loss. Nobody else.

  46. charlietheunicorn

    *takes bow*

    Clemson vs LSU

    But holy smokes, Burrow goes #1… no doubt about it.

  47. charlietheunicorn

    Such a great watch, MoneyLynch 100%

  48. Volume12

    *insert foot in mouth here*

    Was Ohio St drunk? Left at least TDs on the field and just some odd decisions from Ryan Day. No such thing as ‘chasing points.’ You get the points ypu need. Much like w/Bama you have to kill a Clemson when you get the chance. And than kill ’em again for good measure.

    • Volume12

      And that’s not taking anything away from the players on both teams or diminishing what they did. Both teams played great.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Joe Burrow killt OK dead. He took off his pads in the 3rd quarter

    • DC

      Remember when Mark Helfrich inherited a stacked Oregon team and led them to a title game shot in his sophomore year? (A demoralizing, humiliating & soul shattering loss to Ohio State)

      Two short years later he was shown the door. If Day starts losing to Michigan… the clock starts ticking.

  49. Rob Staton

    Chase Young showed again last night that while he’s a very talented prospect, some of the ‘OMG BEST PLAYER IN THE DRAFT’ talk is over the top.

    Let’s see how he tests.

    • Trevor


    • Trevor

      All the teams picking after Cincy (Wash, NY, Mia) need a LT badly. I could easily see Andrew Thomas going #2 ahead of Young and he is the far safer pick IMO.

  50. Bankhawk

    I’m with you Rob- I haven’t watched any other OSU games this season, but I tried to pay attention to Young, and while I would never say he didn’t show-he seemed a bit under-emotional, considering the circumstances. I’d think twice before I’d spring for him with the 2nd pick.

    Then again, I’ve watched but little of his play, and then there’s all the pre-draft stuff that’s yet to come.

  51. Trevor

    Dabo Swinney is the new Pete Carrol of College Football. Great recruiter who has built a program with an amazing culture. Those kids play hard and for each other. OSU was clearly the more talented team but the got out coached and Clemson seemed to want it more.

      Maybe when Pete decides to retire we can get Dabo to take over for him.

      • Rob Staton

        I think Dabo’s next stop will be Alabama.

        • DC

          Dabo’s got a pretty clear path to the CFP every year pillaging the ACC. You think he’d rather follow in Saban’s deep footsteps & risk the SEC mine field than blaze his own legendary trail?

          • Rob Staton

            Yes because he’s an Alabama guy.

            • DC

              Is Saban hinting at leaving?

              • Rob Staton

                No but I can’t imagine he’ll go on for too much longer

              • charlietheunicorn

                Rumor he might head to NFL….. we will see

  52. DC

    Just looked back at Pauline’s season preview of LSU for reference. Burrow was graded as a FA and ascended to the #1 pick. Pretty meteoric rise. Hope his success continues for Cincy. They have suffered enough.

  53. Trevor

    If both guys were coming out who would you take at #1 Burrows or Lawrence?

    I think I would take Lawrence but it is a lot closer than I would have dreamed at the start of the year.

    • Volume12


    • Barry

      Burrows. Burrows has shown the mental game few ever get it in college or pro ball. His physical skills are somewhere below Andrew Lucks but his mental game is above Lucks coming out of college.

      Burrows elevated a great college program even higher this year.

      It’s a bit rare to see a Qb so aggressively in control. His comfort level is through the roof.

  54. DC

    Rob, just got a solid look at your boy Isaiah Wilson of Georgia vs LSU. He certainly looks the part of a Seahawks RT. I know you’ve got him going at #12 now so he wouldn’t be an option.

    As far as the Seahawks positional draft order goes, it seems like the Ifedi situation is the lynchpin. Keep him and you can do all kinds of different things (aka, have more fun). If he walks? Much more likely that Seattle drafts a 1st round T.

    I could be totally wrong about this but based on past results the FO’s positional spending might stay relatively lower at DB where they successfully draft, develop & acquire players & also at the short shelf life RB position. That money can be used to keep the guys they trust on the OL & help to avoid a repeat of the recent ‘horror show’ years that we all were a witness to. The post-Okung/pre-Brown years being the low point. Someone is going to pay Ifedi more money than most of us think he is worth. For continuity sake and for a more exciting 2020 draft, I hope that someone is us.

    • Trevor

      Ifedi was as good or better last year than he has been this year and the Hawks declined his 5th year option. I think that tells you all you need to know. If they viewed him as a key component there is no way they dont pick up that option.

      • Rob Staton

        Sure but just because they don’t view him as a must have at an expensive cost doesn’t mean they aren’t willing to bring him back once he’s established his actual market.

        • Trevor

          Very true I guess I just don’t see the Hawks breaking the bank to keep him.

    • Rob Staton

      They could also sign a veteran alternative if Ifedi moves on.

      • DC

        It’s shaping up to be a most interesting offseason.

  55. Trevor

    I know the Hawks wont take a CB in Rd #1 but Wade from Ohio St could take our secondary to another level I think. He looks like an elite slot corner to me who can turn the all over and plays really physical.

    Griffin and Flowers outside with Wade in the slot and Mcdougald / Diggs at Safety would be a pretty dynamic unit.

    • DC

      The secondary seems pretty damn close to being pretty damn good.

  56. Aaron

    I feel for Burrow. The Bungles are gonna ruin him unless another team steps in and drafts him at no. 1.

    • Volume12

      I have the same reservations you do. Not worried about Burrows but what’s around him. Mixon, him, Jonah Williams, Tyler Boyd is a nice a little nucleus to build around. Thing is, they need more in front of him and that’s a team who doesn’t spend $ in FA.

  57. Volume12

    I hope KC drafts Travis Etienne

  58. astro.domine

  59. Paul Cook

    Detroit can’t bear Green Bay. Impossible.

  60. Paul Cook

    Man, if Detroit upsets Green Bay (I’ll have to see it to believe it), the stakes for tonight’s game get jacked up.

  61. Trevor

    If the Lions pull off a shocker are the Hawks playing for a Rd #1 bye tonight?

    • Paul Cook

      I believe we’d be playing for the #2 seed.

    • Aaron

      Unless Rodgers pulls magic out of his hat then tonight’s game would definitely have higher stakes.

      49ers win: 49ers are 1st seed, Hawks are 5th
      Hawks win: 49ers are 5th seed, Hawks are 2nd

      If Packers win then…

      49ers win: 49ers are 1st seed, Hawks are 5th
      Hawks win: 49ers are 5th seed, Hawks are 3rd

  62. Aaron

    F U Lions!!! Trash franchise. It’s pointless to win tonight cuz we don’t get a bye 😡😡😡 #TwitterShockJock

  63. Paul Cook

    What a drag watching that game just knowing in the back of my mind that the Lions were probably going to come up short and just end up frustrating and disappointing me. I almost wish they had gotten blown out so that I didn’t get sucked into it. LOL

  64. Paul Cook

    With Green Bay winning, you’d think that you’d have to give serious consideration to resting/sitting those players that are on-the-fence now in terms of their health, players like Clowney. Minnesota at home or (likely) Philly on the road…hmm…close call. I know PC doesn’t tend to think in such terms, but as a fan I do wonder a bit.

    • Barry

      Ha, I was just typing up something of the same line of thought, Paul.

    • Aaron

      The Seahawks twitter folks are probably wanting us to rest our starters and treat this like a preseason finale type game. But for those guys in that building this game is gonna be for the division crown. You gotta think they’re gonna go balls to the wall with that crowd against that team in that spotlight tonight.

      • Paul Cook

        There’s something in-between from that. It’s not giving up, but rather just sitting/resting players who are hurt and letting them get healthier for the playoffs. We can still beat the 49ers if things go our way.

      • charlietheunicorn

        No one plays to lose, everyone plays to win (except the BROWNS!). If Seattle beats the 49ers, who cares.. except the current rivalry goes up 100x.

  65. Volume12

    A.J. Brown is a stud.

  66. Barry

    Rob, or anyone chime in on this.

    With both Green Bay and the Saints winning the Hawks have no chance at a number 1 seed. If the 49ers win they do have the first seed.

    Would it be prudent to rest everyone you can treat this as a buy week go play wherever we do in round one and two and if we make it to the NFC championship our fans travel well to SF.

    Would you realistically roll the dice on a rest game and take your chances?

    • DC

      I’m sure Pete is pondering forfeiture as we write 🤔…



    • Henry Taylor

      Reasons this game is still of great importance:
      1: The 3rd seed is still better than the 4th seed, under the very real possibility the 49ers (or the Vikings) win two road games we’ll get to host the NFC championship.
      2: Momentum is real.
      3: Fuck the 49ers, sweeping them and reclaiming the west is a good season regardless of the playoffs.

      • Henry Taylor

        Actually not the Vikings because we’d play them in the wild card round.

    • cha

      1-winning the division is always the goal
      2-hosting Minnesota at home > going to Dallas or Philly
      3-beating SF is always good
      4-10-15% chance of hosting the NFCCG is better than none

  67. DC

    Don’t name your NFL franchise after a large cat unless you want it to be a cosmic joke.

      • Volume12

        Amazing what happens when you let your pass rushers put their hand in the dirt instead of aaking them to drop into coverage.

        IDK why the NFL always overthinks things. We see it every year in the draft too.

  72. Trevor

    The job the Dolphins coaching staff did with that roster is the most impressive thing I have seen in a while.

    Would like to see them have a solid draft and get still get Tua because the players refused to tank no matter how hard the front office tried.

    • Sea Mode



  73. Sea Mode

    Ok, late to the party, but just watched Clemson vs. Ohio St. highlights and you guys were right: what a game!

    Seemed like a fair fight until Wade was ejected and Dobbins was hurt. You can see the SPARQ juice oozing from Dobbins when he runs. Definition of explosive.

    I also find it hard to believe that fumble return TD was called incomplete.

    Hope the championship game is a good one.

    • Volume12

      The Wade call was a tough one. It was the right call, but the rule sucks.

      I’m not sure what else he’s supposed to do there when Lawrence ducks his head into bullets flying.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      I thought Etienne was impressive too. What a great battle between QBs and RBs.

      At least Dickson is on his game… 🤷‍♂️

    • Aaron

      Looking pretty lackluster for sure

    • DC

      No WR options outside of Metcalf. Lickety still injured and Moore sacrificed to Sherm.

      • Rob Staton

        It’s often how healthy you are at this time of year. And we’re the second most injured team in the playoff mix.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      It’s entirely up to the defense. If they can keep it a 1-2 score game, maybe just maybe they can steal one late in the game.

  90. Aaron

    Looking pretty lackluster for sure

    • Rob Staton

      We’re looking to DK Metcalf to be a game winner 😬😬😬

      • Pran

        This offense is deteriorated quietly. Once Lockette is taken care by defense there is none to step up.

        • Rob Staton

          Sort of. More so when you lose Carson, Penny, Gordon, Brown, Prosise, Dissly, Britt though.

  91. CHawk Talker Eric

    When Garoppolo can deliver into ultra tight windows but Wilson can’t…🙄

    • Rob Staton

      They’re on schedule and we aren’t. They have their guys, they have their scheme. They aren’t working around a whole bunch of missing players.

      We need something like big turnovers or special teams craziness to be in this. We’re miles behind San Fran with all these injuries.

    • Hawks4life

      When Wilson has no protection and an elite Dline rushing him but Jimmy has protection and all the time in the world..

      • CHawk Talker Eric

        What time? Jimmy’s passes have mostly been quick hits. Ball’s out of his hand in about 2.5 seconds.

        • Hawks4life

          We have no consistent pass rush. We’ve had the ball twice. On another note if Tyler Lockett is 80% why is he returning kicks..

  92. DC

    I don’t see how having Hill out there is any better than Blair right now.

  93. Pran

    I think they are keeping things closed to their chest. There is no reason to win this game. I would rather play Eagles than Vikings next week. And go to SF again in two weeks.

    There is no good to come out of spending all your energy this week. Give Lynch some carries, tweak the scheme for new players & oil the machine for the playoffs.

    • Rob Staton

      No, they’re not keeping things close to their chest.

      • line_hawk

        They will come out firing next week. The team seems to lack energy today. Get Brown & Diggs in two weeks & give your best.

        • Rob Staton

          No, they wont come out firing next week. The goose is cooked.

          • Hawks4life

            I feel the same way Rob it’s been a hell of a year with all the ups and downs. But the goose is cooked anything extra is just that. Extra.

          • line_hawk

            Carroll’s teams never go out without a fight. Even in 2010, they beat the odds. I wouldn’t count them out yet. Eagles aren’t world beaters and after that, you will have Lynch in game shape. Plus, Diggs, Clowney, Brown & company might be back. And we will play 49ers a third time & those games are never blowouts.

  99. Aaron

        • Rob Staton

          Dunno. 11 wins vs 10. Pass rush collapsed.

          • Aaron

            Lots of draft picks and good cap space in the offseason but also lots of FA and almost an entire OL that could change. Also Pete in last year of contract in 2020, right? Crossroads perhaps for the franchise.

            • Rob Staton

              The Pete stuff isn’t a thing. Only on twitter.

              The problem this year is injuries and a crap pass rush.

              • Aaron

                I would tend to agree with you Rob. Just thought I’d being up his contract situation. Never know when he’ll hang it up, just look at Chris Petersen. Pass rush, speed on defense, more weapons at receiver are among the priorities this offseason.

    • line_hawk

      Better than playing Vikings imo.

    Sorry !! 3rd and 3 then 3rd and 2 both times throwing the ball just do not understand it. Small ball and moving the chains does not seem to appeal to them. After Lynch got 7 yds on his run it would have been a great boost to them had they given it to him and he picked up the 1st.

  108. mishima

    Well, Mode magic was fun while it lasted.

  109. Tony

    Man. We look so lifeless on offense and on our heels on defense. I mean if lose, whatever, but let’s atleast play aggressive. The gameplan looks soft overall. It doesnt matter either way. 9ers look on point, we look toast.

  110. Kenny Sloth

    Shoulda brought Avril and Chancellor out of retirement too

    How that helps Hawks…

  126. Volume12

    I thought Collinsworth nailed it.

    There’s opportunities there. For whatever reason, if Seattle can’t run they can’t execute.

    • Kingdome1976

      Which is why I keep harping on getting another stud RB that can handle the rock for 3 downs. I know it’s unpopular but we are useless without a running game. If Carson goes out we are done for…..MORE than ANY other team in the league that has playoff hopes.

    • Pran

      If Hawks wants to be in the game, they have to call some designed ruin plays for Russ.

      • Pran

        Read as Run.. with out that ruined anyways.

      • Volume12

        I actually think they need to pass more. 🤷‍♂️

        • Tony

    • Volume12

      Singling him out here but it’s a perfect example.

      The Ifedi penalty on that last drive. That’s an opportunity ya scheme for. Seattle got the coverage they wanted, set a man in motion, and shoot themselves in the foot.

    • mishima

      Sequencing out of sync. Commit to something.

    • McZ

      This is what many, many people were sayin’ the last two years. Run first plan nice and well, but what if you cannot enforce the run? The passing offense is conservative as hell, no creativity, no vertical, no separation, no spread, no slot.

      We can be a run-enforcing team first, but we need to have a plan B, that consists of more than RW improvising.

      • Volume12

        They need something outta the slot badly.

        Would not hate Justin Jefferson. The new age slot receiver.

        I love how we produce a top-five DVOA offense all year and a MVP candidate then half the team gets hurt and it’s all ‘Plan B isn’t good enough’.

  127. Canadian Hawk

    Brutal half of football.
    Couldn’t play any worse.

    How are we down only 13?

  128. Pran

    1st half review: defense only gave up 13
    Offense: Only turned over once on downs

    • Sea Mode

      4th down stop was a back breaker in a game where we are already broken.

  129. Trevor

    I have never been an Ifedi hater or fan but he has been flat out awful the second half of this season. I don’t see anyway he gets anything more that a one year mid level deal on the free agent market and I really hope Hawks let him walk.

  130. Neil

    They just have to get some young talented o linemen. These guys aren’t moving the d line.

  131. Trevor

    I know Clowney has been hurt the second half of the year but has he looked anything like a $20 mil /yr plus player?

    I can only think of one game against SF last time where he was a real difference maker.

    Fixing the pass rush has to be priority #1 this off season but is signing Clowney for $100 mil+ really the answer? I am not so sure.

    • Rob Staton

      Well if you don’t sign your only good player on the DL and let him walk, good luck finding value on the open market and being able to replace him and the other spots that desperately need help.

      • Trevor

        I agree Rob the Hawks are in a bad spot when it comes to the DL but has he looked like a $20 mil /yr + player to you?

        • Rob Staton

          Yes at various times this year.

  132. Trevor

    People were always trying to get Britt out of town but I think they really miss him in the Run game. Hunt battles but is just too small to get much movement.

  133. Tony

    Unfortunately I had the feeling all week this was going to happen. I tried to hope lynch would ignite us, but my gut feeling was a bad showing for the 3rd time in 4 weeks. Just a sad ending to the season. And to get gutted by 9ers in the end is so discouraging.

    I just need hope, give me something other than this effort.

    • Rob Staton

      Sure, I think we all internally had a feeling on this. I was happy — and still am — that Marshawn gave us a distraction and some hope over Xmas. But yes, the writing was on the wall.

      • Kenny Sloth

        F*** that lets go win this thing!!! Let’s GOOO ROB

    • Sea Mode

      I won’t rule him out completely, but it seems so far the Lynch move was just a PR win for both him and the Hawks.

      • Tony

        Its a brilliant move for lynch. He can come in and be the savior for Seattle. If they dont go far, he still goes for being a Seattle legend. But if they go far, he stamps his career with legend status. It’s a no lose situation for him and us. We were desperate anyways. And a street signing doesnt do much anyways.

  134. Sea Mode

    KJ the screen sniffer

  135. Kenny Sloth

    It’s just a game!! Let’s send their a**** to Philly

    • Kenny Sloth


  136. Hawks4life

    Sherman didn’t want the smoke from Lynch haha.

    • Sea Mode

      Saw that!

  137. Volume12


  138. Volume12

    Homer is a nice little back man.

  139. CHawk Talker Eric

    What’s this? A little bit of life?

  140. Hawks4life

    I know it wasn’t egregious but why doesn’t Wilson get any calls for those hits when he slides…

  141. Volume12

    All Lockett does…??

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Catch TDs!

      Honor the traditions

    • Kenny Sloth

      Score TDs and praise god

  142. Henry Taylor

    What a start to this half!

    • Canadian Hawk

      Love the heart of this team – never quit!

  143. CHawk Talker Eric

    What situational awareness by Wilson to know he wasn’t entirely past the LOS. They’re warming up a little bit here.

    • Sea Mode

      Dare to dream…?

      • Rob Staton

        Need to see something on defense first…. eg a turnover.

        • Rob Staton

          And that easy explosive passing play to the FB aint it.

          • Chris

            It’s the hope that kills you.

          • Rob Staton

            They manufactured that matchup specifically for this type of scenario — regaining the swing back their way. Worked a treat.

  144. CHawk Talker Eric

    How the hell do you let the FB get downfield all by himself?

    • Volume12

      Shannahan just continues to sh** all over Pete’s Cover 3.

      • Matt

        It’s the jimmies and the joes, not the x’s and the o’s.

        Bring in more talent in D.

        • Kenny Sloth

          It’s the injuries woes

          • Matt

            As we all knows.

            Now let’s read some Cat in the Hat. 😉

  145. John_s

    I hope next year we don’t have to see Kendricks in coverage. We need a true nickel guy

  146. CHawk Talker Eric

    It’s not the same as a TO but stopping SF from converting the 2 point conversion is still a boost. Homer continues to run well. Holister continues to help move the chains.

    Nothing against Russell but he’s just not as fast as he was. Yeah I know Bosa is quick, but it’s hard to argue Wilson hasn’t lost a step.

    • Volume12

      Lol. Bosa has made 2 great plays, but your right. Looks like he’s running in quicksand.

  147. Hawks4life

    Can we get Lynch a TD please and thank you!

  148. Volume12

    Skittle time

  149. CHawk Talker Eric

    That kind of makes the night watching Lynch score a TD

  150. Henry Taylor

    That made me so happy

  151. mishima


  152. charlietheunicorn

    Not going quietly into the night!

  153. SoCal12

    All I wanted from this game was a Marshawn TD. I am happy camper no matter the results now.

  154. Sea Mode

    It’s all been worth it now! Beast Mode!

    Now we just need a fortunate turnover on defense.

  155. CHawk Talker Eric

    Don’t look now but it’s a 5 point game with 10 minutes left, Wilson is settling into a rhythm and diagnosing SF defense. If SEA defense can get a stop or hold SF to a FG, there’s a chance.

  156. Rob Staton

    Defense hasn’t made a big play all game.

    If the unit has a big play in it, let’s have it right now guys. We need something, anything. We need a shot.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Some hits and TFLs a few sacks early, but there are some glaring holes, I’d settle for a turnover or a punt

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      Not an auspicious start to this defensive series

  157. Kenny Sloth

    Landed on his feet too.

    They haven’t brought him to the ground in a minute

  158. downtownjewelrybryan

    come on D, we need a stop

    • Rob Staton

      And right off the first snap, Ansah whiffs completely on an easy stop.

  159. Matt

    The Niners have more talent and I’d admit they are a better total team. But this ain’t no Rams 2017 game. Seattle keeps fighting.

  160. Volume12

    WTF was that Ziggy?!?

    • Rob Staton

      A complete whiff.

    • Volume12

      Then he gets stoned in the hole

      • mishima

        Liability. Offers nothing out there.

  161. Rob Staton

    The defense just isn’t good enough.

    • Rob Staton

      I mean look how easy this is for them in response after our two TD’s.

      • Pran

        Defense is crap.. how are the guys so wide open

  162. CHawk Talker Eric

    Embarrassing. They can’t tackle to save themselves.

    • Volume12

      Shannahan eating Pete’s Cover 3 alive is gonna be the death of him.

  163. Volume12

    Damn. Deebo is so damn good.

    • Henry Taylor

      Loved him during draft season, was gutted he went to a division rival.

  164. CHawk Talker Eric

    That 3rd down conversion is a dagger

  165. Coleslaw

    -Edge is a huge need. DE and OLB.

    -We cant afford to lose Ifedi.

    • John_s

      Give me Kenneth Murray in the first, Everson Griffin reached his sacks clause and can be a free agent. Go ahead sign him up. Speed at the LB is a must

      We need an Al Woods run stiffer replacement.

    • Matt

      Yep. Can’t draft WR first. If no D help there, trade back or get creative, but the D is the bigger issue. At least that’s what I’d do… even though, as Rob is great as analyzing, they’ll probably go WR.

      Weapons sound nice. D wins championships.

  166. Chris

    Ordinary. Very ordinary.

    • Chris

      They are scoring at will – and have all year. We’ve no answer.

  167. Volume12

    Did they even get a hand on him?

    • Pran

      Bobby .. who

  168. mishima

    Front 7 needs an overhaul.

    • Coleslaw

      Better edge rush and depth on DL and getting younger at LB is huge. We need a nickel/ big nickel or something. Screw this 3 LB crap.

    • Pran

      Bad drafting and picking from FA heap has its affects.

      Where is all the youth from drafts.. Poona, Flowers and little bit of Green from last 2 drafts contributing that’s it.

      On the offense, Metcalf, Penny some and Homer now

  169. Hawks4life

    Pack your bags boys… were going to Philadelphia!!!!

  170. Tony

    Lynch td worth the watch.

    D is not good. Hoping for Diggs next week. But offense will have to win games. And not be inconsistent.

  171. neil

    If you can’t tackle you can’t win. They seem out of position and ill prepared for the what the 49ers do.

  172. Volume12

    I’m just saying. Seattle has something in Homer. Shoulda been getting the snaps over Prosise.

    • CHawk Talker Eric


      • Hawks4life

        I agree. CJ should’ve been gone after last year hes made of glass.

      • Volume12

        Same wavelength again per usual.

  173. CHawk Talker Eric

    Homer has acquitted himself rather well tonight.

  174. mishima

    I keep hearing Homer called ‘Palmer.” Just me?

  175. Volume12

    Ahhh f***

    • Sea Mode

      Don’t you even dare, football gods…

  176. Tony

    I see a pattern where once we start doing something well, someone goes down to halt that. Defense, run game, offense.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Just need one eency little stop

  177. Volume12

    DK bay bay! Boom

  178. CHawk Talker Eric

    Sweet catch by DK plucked that right out of the air

  179. CHawk Talker Eric

    Ok one more time. Can this defense make a stop?

    • Sea Mode

      Would be a minor miracle at this point. I believe!

    • Chris

      Just about!!

  180. Volume12

    This D needs something more than ever right about now

  181. Aaron

    Defense, just one stop or takeaway…is that too much to ask???

  182. CHawk Talker Eric

    Nice tackle by Griffin

  183. CHawk Talker Eric

    This is the game. Get off the field

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      JFC as it is they needed every one of those 17 yards to make the stop

  184. CHawk Talker Eric

    No mistakes. They can win this

  185. Volume12

    Tell ya what. Win, lose, or draw. This team has been in every game but 2 this year. So impressive when ya think about how banged up they’ve been combined with lack of pass rush.

    • Canadian Hawk


      Ton of heart.

      • Volume12

        A big reason why IMO Pete & John love those guys that’ve battled through some type of adversity. A game ain’t ever too much for them.

    • Sea Mode


    • CHawk Talker Eric

      That’s the PC culture

  186. Sea Mode

    It all comes down to this. RW time!

  187. CHawk Talker Eric

    This might be DK’s best game so far.

    • Volume12


  188. mishima

    2 words: baby aspirin.

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      2 more words: Portable defibrillator

  189. Henry Taylor

    This is why I can never sleep after Seattle games, it always takes me a good hour to get my heart rate down.

    • Sea Mode

      I’m not shhhakiing, you’re shaking…

  190. CHawk Talker Eric

    George Fant has had a nice game. Bosa hasn’t been much of a pass rushing factor.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Dont jinxxx

  191. CHawk Talker Eric

    Perfect play by Homer

  192. Hawks4life

    Do you guys smell that….

  193. CHawk Talker Eric

    Guys we can win this

  194. Volume12

    Dangerous throw

  195. CHawk Talker Eric

    Heart just skipped a beat

  196. CHawk Talker Eric

    Two plays to score a TD

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      WTF was that?

      • Hawks4life

        Amazing drive fizzled out. Not a big fan of the last few calls. Let’s see what happens on the last try. My heart omg i cant take it

  197. Volume12


    • Volume12


      • CHawk Talker Eric

        HAS to be

  198. CHawk Talker Eric


  199. CHawk Talker Eric

    Ursua what a time to make his first catch in the NFL

  200. Volume12

    Come on Pete. Delay of game w/ :22 left?

    • Trevor


    • mishima

      Jesus. Do they practice/prepare for these situations?

  201. Volume12

    That was a PI

  202. Volume12

    That is so close

  203. CHawk Talker Eric

    Holister is clearly down

  204. Hawks4life

    Pathetic officials. This happens over and over again. I know we had plenty of chances but my god.

    • Hawks4life

      Should’ve kicked the FG first half…. just saying lol

    • Volume12

      Nah. That delay of game cost us.

      • Hawks4life

        Well of course it did. So did alot of things. Hypothetically if we got that 3 before half all we would’ve needed is a FG

  205. neil

    Why didn’t PC challenge the no pass interference on Hollister?

    • Hawks4life

      You can’t its up to the officials…. insane we have this issue in a billion dollar industry

    • CHawk Talker Eric

      No time out, no challenge.

      • icb12

        Not to mention no challenges inside two minutes anyway right?

    • Matt

      Dude… it’s under 2 minutes. Can’t challenge.

  206. Trevor

    Devasting loss! Hawks played hard but that delay of game penalty is inexcusable.

    • Volume12


  207. CHawk Talker Eric

    Huge blunder on that delay of game. Gotta wonder. But I’m not even mad. That’s as close as you can get. They clearly aren’t the better team so a win was always improbable.

  208. mishima

    Pete doesn’t like the one-yard line. /smh

  209. Pran

    8 attempts in response.. 1 yard line .. 0 points.
    We find ways to lose the game as usual

    • Pran

      Read as in Red Zone

    • Matt

      Find ways to lose? You looked at this team’s record under Carroll?

      It sucked to lose but a heck your hyperbole at the door. 🤦🏻‍♂️

  210. Kenny Sloth

    That finger was over the line 😤😤

    • Kenny Sloth

      We didn’t deserve to be in that game, but it came down to an inch. Can’t believe we couldn’t get one yard

      • Pran

        Yet again..

  211. Aaron

    On to Philly and a chance to meet up again with the 49ers in the Divisional Round in two weeks. The division crown decided by an inch.

  212. Sea Mode

    Fitting ending.

    The delay of game sucks the most.

    The non PI call, or at least booth review, sucks the next most.

    Hollister an inch short: bummer, but that’s just football.

  213. Donovan

    Hell of an effort! That’s a team I love and respect t.

    FWIW, I think Philly & Green Bay is easier road than Min & NO.

    I want Rd 3 of Niners-Hawks in NFC Champ Game!

  214. charlietheunicorn

    Fant was late back to the huddle, led to the delay of game.

  215. CHawk Talker Eric

    It’s hard to overstate the opportunity lost by Carroll on that delay of game. Not only would they have won the game and the division, but winning it on that play with Lynch would’ve been so beneficial for everyone. It would’ve put the ghosts of SB49 to rest. What a missed opportunity.

    • Sea Mode

      Huge point there. What a storyline that would have been. Oh well.

      • Ramses

        Wait! What exactly was Carrol supposed to do? Call a time-out?

  216. Trevor

    So we beat Philly next week and then play in SF?

    • Aaron

      The lowest remaining seed will play the 49ers in two weeks. If…

      We win and Vikings lose: Seahawks vs. 49ers
      We win and Vikings win: Vikings vs 49ers

      • Sea Mode

        MIN vs. NO grudge match sounds good to me…

  217. charlietheunicorn

    The Seattle offense woke up… and gave them time to start getting Lynch into the game and the offense. Next week, they should be getting back to themselves.. and start rolling on the road.

  218. Henry Taylor

    Absolutely gutting to come that close, but can’t be too mad at that effort. We’ll most likely get to do round 3 in a couple weeks so long as we can kill of the Eagles

    • neil

      Won ‘t be easy. The stat I saw, was in the last two year, in games the Hawks have played a team twice in a year, they are 7-i the first time and 1-6 the second time. Hard to beat a good team twice in a year, especially when the second game is on their turf.

  219. Neil

    Another example of sleep walking thru first half of games. So let me see if I have this correct. You can only challenge pass interference if pass interference was called?

    • Sea Mode

      No, you can challenge PI non-calls as well. But no coaches challenges at all allowed inside 2 minutes.

      • Neil

        Which is kind of a dumb rule since so many games are won or lost in the last 2 minutes. And gain the Hawks can only blame themselves for sleep walking through the first half.

  220. John_s

    Anyone else screaming for Russ to sneak it after Ursua’s catch instead of spiking it? There was such a mess going on would’ve been a good chance he scored.

    • Pran

      I was hoping they do that and catch defense off guard.

    • Sea Mode

      commentator hinted at the idea

  221. 12th chuck

    good thing nfl has p.i. review now….or not. But the Monday apology on how they missed the call will be worth it…or not. Delay of game was inexcusable. Damn glad Lockett is ok, we definitely need Diggs back. So many things you can complain about, but at least we are in the playoffs, niners will have a harder schedule next year and we have a winnable game next week

    • 12th chuck

      p.s. and we made it a game in the second half, that I am happy about for sure. It looked like it was going to be a blowout

    • Neil

      IE.. refer to Henry Taylor above.

  222. Mark Souza

    Perfect instance of shooting ourselves in the foot. Ball on the 1/2 yard line, and after stopping the clock, we can’t get a play off before taking a delay of game penalty. This is why Carroll can never be in the same conversation with Belichick.

  223. Forrest

    Hell of a game, I obviously had issues, but I also saw some life in this team that has been missing for a few weeks…also, remember everyone, it’s a “rebuild” year ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Onto Philly where I can only hope the “road warrior” mentality remains. Go Hawks!
