Merry Christmas to all. Here is my traditional Christmas Eve mock draft for 2020.

Thoughts on the Seahawks pick

In all of my 2021 mock drafts so far, I’ve tried to look at the scenarios where the Seahawks can be opportunistic in the late second round.

I think that’s a possible approach this year. They have hit the jackpot with players who dropped into this range in the past (D.K. Metcalf, Frank Clark). It’s possible they will seek a similar opportunity, considering they don’t have a first round pick.

Therefore, I’ve tried to find talented and/or highly athletic players who might drop a bit. That has included, so far…

— Haskell Garrett (shot in the face earlier this year yet has made a full recovery)

— Marvin Wilson (inconsistent play but a physical phenom)

— Jaelen Phillips (former five-star recruit but suffered concussions at UCLA)

In this projection I’ve gone for an even more extreme projection.

Landon Dickerson is a terrific offensive lineman. I hadn’t fully focused on him until last week. His toughness leaps off the screen. For the 2020 season he was credited with zero sacks and only one quarterback pressure. According to PFF, he was the most valuable O-liner in college football per ‘wins above average’.

I was preparing to pair him with the Seahawks in my next mock. His personality and competitive attitude, plus his size, seemed like a good fit. Ethan Pocic is a free agent in the off-season and while he could easily be re-signed — the Seahawks don’t have limitless resources this off-season. Some players are going to need to be replaced on the cheap. If they can keep him for a modest sum, that’s great. I’m not sure what his market will be though. He could actually receive a lot of interest given he’s only 25 and now has a strong season as a starter on his résumé.

So Dickerson was going to be the guy for Seattle here. Then I watched the SEC Championship game and he suffered a serious knee injury.

I considered changing the pick because the Seahawks have had a bad enough experience with an injured second rounder this year. However, I decided to stick with it. After all, I’m trying to identify players who could fall into range and can play beyond their draft position. Dickerson has the talent to achieve that if he can stay healthy.

Unfortunately staying healthy is the big problem.

In 2016 he tore his ACL. In 2017 he had surgery on his right ankle. In 2018 he missed the whole season due to complications over a high ankle sprain. He then transferred from Florida State to Alabama and suffered this knee injury at the end of the year.

You could say he’s injury prone. You could also argue he’s unlucky. There’s nothing unique about his frame that suggests he’s liable to get injured. It’s also worth noting the injuries are different.

Even so, he has had some problems staying on the field. After the Darrell Taylor experience, the Seahawks quite likely wouldn’t make this pick in round two. He might even last longer than he otherwise would and could be available later.

Nevertheless, he’s a bad ass center who is beloved in Alabama:

Here was quarterback Mac Jones’ reaction to the injury:

“Landon is one of my best friends, and if Landon is going to stay on the ground then you know something’s wrong. He tried to get up, but I think our trainers were like ‘Stay down, stay down.’

“It just goes to show, that guy will put his whole life on the line for Alabama football and if he could he’d play as soon as he can for us because he just wants to be back, but obviously the injuries are the injuries.”

I just want more guys who play like Dickerson on this team. He straddles the fine line between what’s acceptable and not. He’s what an offensive lineman should be — a bit quirky, a bit crazy and tough as old leather.

Provided you do all the requisite medical checks and don’t find anything that points to all these injuries, he might be worth taking a chance on. Obviously you’d have to see signs of a positive recovery from his latest setback too.

I don’t think it’s particularly likely he’s taken by Seattle here because they only have one pick in the first three rounds. They also have a lot of potential needs, with several players out of contract in the off-season. Drafting a player who is recovering from injury with the only high pick you own could just be too risky.

That said, to me he plays on tape like a future multi-year starter in the NFL.

He’s also athletic — scoring 100.05 in SPARQ which is a great mark for an interior offensive lineman. He was the #64 overall High School recruit per ESPN in 2016.

I’ll clarify one more time that I’m doing these projections for a team picking in the late second round, in a college football season hammered by a global pandemic. It’s not easy to come up with new names but that’s what I want to try and do. I want to present different options.

I also have no issue with the Seahawks trying to hit a home run with their pick in round two — provided that next year, they’re able to do all the full medical checks. That was my issue with the Taylor pick. If ever there was a time to be cautious it was the 2020 draft. Teams simply didn’t have anywhere close to the necessary information to make big calls on injuries. Seattle not only took a gamble — they gave up two high picks to do so.

If Dickerson or anyone else can be tested thoroughly — and who knows whether that’ll be possible in 2021 — then the risk is at least somewhat managed.

Health permitting, he has the talent, potential and attitude to set the tone for your O-line for a decade.

Other quick draft notes

— It’s still early but this is looking like a strong draft for interior linemen on both sides of the ball. There are a number of talented defensive tackles available and there appears to be some strong options at center and guard too.

— The SEC game against Florida sold me on Najee Harris. He is just so classy combining elegance, power and size with an ability to do everything — run inside or out, run good routes and provide a dynamic weapon that can help lead an offense.

— Sadly for the Seahawks, without a late first round pick in 2021, there are a lot of appealing options available in that range. This looks like another draft that will be significantly elevated by underclassmen and there should be some fantastic prospects available in the top-50.

    I’ve been excited all week for this mock! Interesting to see Wilson above Fields in this one! Thanks Rob for your hard work this year! Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    • Rob Staton

      Thanks Jace, Merry Christmas

  2. Isaac

    Do you see Seattle keeping DJ Reed in as the starting corner come next year? Whenever the camera is on him he seems to make a play and he has a 90.8 off grade vs mclaurin for most of the game. As Pete Carroll said, he has that angry Doug attitude when on that field and that is something we need more of. Thank you for your time and merry Christmas!

    • James Kupihea

      I have no relevant input. I do know however, that I find myself cheering for the kid more than anyone else on this defense. He’s flying around, he’s playing with an edge, and everyone is noticing.

    • Rob Staton

      I think there’s a decent chance, yes

  3. Zxvo3

    I appreciate the work you put into these mock drafts Rob. I watched the podcast last night and I guessed the wrong offensive lineman. I guessed it was going to be Jalen Mayfield from Michigan. But I do like Landon Dickerson. But like you said, I don’t know if they would pick him as their 1st pick with his injury history.

    I feel if Marvin Wilson was there, they would definitely pick Wilson. He fits their high upside, physically dominant player. Although he hasn’t played as well this season, I would still pick him.

    I also wanted to hear your opinion on two DL prospects. Jordan Davis from Georgia and Jayson Oweh from Penn State. With Davis, he’s listed as 6’6 320. He does have the size the Seahawks have “craved at the DT position. He’s tough, good against the run, but he’s not good at pass rushing. He’s sort of similar to Raekwon Davis from last year. I think the Seahawks would also be interested in him if he was there. Is Jason Oweh declaring for this draft? If he is, I’m curious to see why he isn’t in the top 2 rounds. He looks like a LEO/EDGE and would fit in well with the Seahawks.

    • Rob Staton

      I see Jordan Davis as a classic anchor. Some teams value the position early and I can see him being a R2 target for a 3-4 team. Oweh just flatters to deceive for me. Athletic, yes, but doesn’t show enough with it.

  4. pdway

    I don’t follow CFB closely at all – so don’t have much to contribute – but when I see you have LB’s going as high as 5th and 7th overall, they must be pretty special players.

  5. TomLPDX

    I also like that you are building a long-term offensive line in Cincy for Joe B. That is too smart and logical…wonder if the Bengals will actually do that.

  6. Scot04

    Another Great Podcast Rob and Robbie,
    I as well don’t care how they win as long as they win; but would also prefer a convincing win for once.

    Curtis thanks for your weekly watch notes, always a good read.

    In regards to Dickerson, great center. Love how he plays, if not for his injury I could have seen him going late 1st early 2nd. I’d been looking at centers.
    Any thoughts on Michael Menet center for Penn if we trade down. I really like him as well.
    I guess if were only going to have a few picks, atleast it’s a draft for trenches which we need. Hopefully a good DL or OL pick at our pick and they go BPA.

    • Scot04

      Rob, on a separate note.

      I know I’m an arctice behind on this.
      I enjoy the blog knowing you’re going to write about what you want to write about.
      It makes me look forward to what might be coming next, especially this year.
      I’ve really enjoyed finding a place not afraid to challenge things the Seahawks have done or are currently doing.
      It’s been obvious to me from the get go you are a true fan and enjoy talking about the team; whether it’s positive or critical.
      I believe coaches, players, or ownership should be challenged when necessary.
      It’s been a relief to find a place where a fan can find a place for both.

      You have provided a great atmosphere full of wonderful thought out content.
      Whether it be on the draft, Free-agency, coaching, player fits, salary issues and so much more.
      It provides such  a great place for discussion amongst us fans & is by far the best Seahawks website there is.
      I myself am very greatful, and in doing so you have provided a great gift i get to appreciate almost daily throughout this year.

      Thanks again for all you have put into it, as I said it is greatly appreciated.
      Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas to you and your family.

      • Rob Staton

        Thanks Scot, Merry Christmas

    • cha

      You’re welcome Scot04. And thank you for the kind words.

  7. TomLPDX

    Hey Rob/Robbie, really enjoyed your podcast this year. Dallas moving away from Dak is such a Jerry thing to do and for Dak’s sake, kind of hope they do it. I like Dak and think he is a top 10 QB and Dallas mgmt are fools. Good luck Dak!

    I like the move for Kellen Mond to Indy. I actually think that would be a good play for their future. I’ve watched Mond his entire college career and seen him progressively get better. He has his flashes and with a coach like Frank Reich, could really maximize his abilities.

    I hope the Seahawks start thinking about our LT situation instead of replacing Pocic…keep Pocic for 2-3 more years and see where he ascends to. I love Duane Brown but also know his time is limited. Do we have his replacement on the roster already or do we need to bring someone in to get ready to take his place.

    I want another DK!!! 🙂

    Santa, all I want for Christmas is the Seahawks smashing the Rams.

    For everyone on this blog, be safe… love your family and be kind to each other.

    Always the best from the Pacific North-West! Cheers

    • BobbyK

      I don’t care about the Rams, “all” I want for Christmas is for the Seahawks to win the Super Bowl.

  9. charlietheunicorn

    Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith and Florida quarterback Kyle Trask are the finalists for the 86th annual Heisman Memorial Trophy, it was announced Thursday.

    Runners up: Alabama’s Najee Harris in fifth, Iowa State’s Breece Hall sixth, Fields from Ohio State seventh, BYU’s Zach Wilson eighth, Ian Book of Notre Dame ninth and Florida’s Kyle Pitts in 10th.

  10. Big Mike

    Merry Christmas to everyone here! This place makes the season bright (and all the other seasons).

    On the agenda today: the annual viewing of A Christmas Story, Saints v. Viqueens and king crab legs for dinner.

    • Ashish

      Rob, thanks for Christmas article. Is there any OT hawks can land in 2nd round? D Brown replacement needs to be there on roaster this year.

      • Submanjoe

        It’s obvious to me, Rob is spot on, they draft this center from Alabama and he gets shifted to left tackle and struggles to adjust, plays some guard too, Pocic of course is resigned and starts at center, and on we go! Haha Merry Christmas!

      • Rob Staton

        It’s always hard to find a left tackle after the first frame

  11. Cortez Kennedy

    Finishing the year strong with the past two articles Rob. Thank your for providing us with honest, uncompromising analysis this past year, kind of a weird one. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    • Rob Staton

      Thank you, Merry Christmas

  12. Gohawks5151

    Merry Christmas SDB! Wishing everyone a great day

    • Sea Mode

      You too. Merry Christmas!

    • Rob Staton

      Merry Christmas all

    • Zxvo3

      Thanks man. Merry Christmas to you too!

  13. cha

    Hopefully that means Jarran Reed plays Sunday.

    Brady Henderson
    The Seahawks list RT Brandon Shell and S Damarious Randall as questionable for Sunday vs. the Rams. LG Mike Iupati is doubtful. RB DeeJay Dallas is out. DT Jarran Reed has no designation so he’s expected to play despite two missed practices. We’ll hear from Pete Carroll tomorrow.
    1:20 PM · Dec 25, 2020

  14. clbradley17

    Merry Christmas everyone. Thanks for putting out the mock draft Rob. I can see us going OL or DL next draft. Another great 2nd day RB we passed on a few years ago with all the size/speed combo we look for is Alvin Kamara of the Saints. Today with the 4th qtr. just started, he has about 150 yards and 5 TDs.

  15. clbradley17

    This mock draft has us looking ahead very soon to not only the Senior Bowl (Jan. 30) and NFL Combine (March 8-11), but also your great interview podcasts with possibly some of the players above and several others. And although it would be almost impossible with the covid this time, I bet we see you doing tons of video podcasts on YouTube in a little over a year with players and coaches, Tony Pauline and many more at the 2022 Senior Bowl.

    • Rob Staton

      I am determined to make a Senior Bowl one day. The content I could get out there would be fantastic.

      • Gohawks5151

        Take my money

  16. Hoggs41

    How would peoplenrank these 4 free agents?

    KJ Wright
    Shaquille Griffin
    Chris Carson
    Ethan Pocic

    • MyChestIsBeastMode

      By Talent:
      1. Carson
      2. Wright
      3. Shaq
      4. Pocic

      By need to re-sign
      1. Shaq – Solid. Big hole at CB without him and outside FAs seem to struggle to adjust to our system

      The rest are all expendable to a degree and should be re-signed if the price is right.

      2. Carson – Penny is not Carson but still has talent and a cheap rookie contract and hopefully he retained his breakaway speed.
      3. Pocic – because of the sheer lack of solid lineman in the NFL. But that same reason could price him out of range.
      4. Wright – only #4 because father time has to catch up to eventually (even though he is playing as solid as ever this year) + Brooks on a rookie LB deal is showing flashes at times and I believe his ascension is part of the team’s plan.

      • dj 1/2 way

        Agree. Well put. Four starters are hard and expensive to replace. The only candidate for a down year is Wright, and only because this year was so good.

        Sign them all. Get a good deal with 2-4 years and team options on the second half.

        All four are important. Even if they add a running back they can still use Carson. Same applies to the rest. First one out? Wright is the closest to the end, but of the four the biggest difference maker this year with Carson close behind.

      • Rob Staton

        In no way could I place Griffin at the top of this list.

        He’s not that good and will be the most expensive by far.

        Neither is Carson expendable. He has a lot of injuries but the difference with and without him is titanic for the offense. Sadly there’s just no realistic alternative but to sign him to a short term extension.

        • Ben

          Completely agree with this take Rob. Griffin- what has he done to warrant a 2nd contract (with a hefty raise to boot)? No way I’d sign him for top CB money- which is what he is going to command. Carson just can’t stay in the field. I fear the Hawks will overlook that and pay him. Hopefully not more than a 2 year deal. I’d rate the signing the guys listed as follows:

          1. Pocic keep some continuity a C.

          2. Griffin. Not because I want him but this was the list we were given and it would be a position of need in 2021.
          3 Carson. For cheap (unlikely)
          4 KJ. I’d like to move him up further on this list, but age and salary demands likely make him expendable. Plus there is too much $ tied up in the LB position already. Would love it if KJ came back and played LEO (also unlikely).

          • Thomas Wells

            Anyone think the franchise or transition tag is a realistic possibility for any of these guys? Using one of those tags on carson might not be the worst idea. With the franchise tag we get him for a one year deal and can try to negotiate a short extension. With the transition we get to let him test the market but we have the right to match. The latter might be the beat option if we can’t get a reasonable short term deal done (although I’m not sure I’m over my Steve Hutchinson transition tag PTSD)

            • cha

              The Seahawks really don’t have the cap room to tag anybody in 2021.

              • Thomas Wells

                Shit. Well there goes that idea. Thanks cha

    • lil’stink

      I mean, I’d like all of them back at the right price. But until we know what the cap will be for next year I’d be surprised to see an extension for any of these guys.

      If it weren’t for his injury history Carson is the one guy I could see PCJS wanting back the most. I know RB’s are viewed as being replaceable but I think CC might be the most difficult of these 4 guys to replace. Had we drafted Chubb instead of Penny it would have put us in such a better position this off-season.

      I’d like to see KJ retire a Seahawk, but with Brooks looking like he’s coming along I’m not sure how his future here plays out.

      Griffen seems like the quintessential “he’ll definitely be overpaid” sort of guy. Chasing after him seems like a bad idea.

      Pocic has been fine but I doubt he will be at the top of the priority list. I could see him staying or leaving depending on his market. Hopefully he stays at a reasonable rate, as his departure would just create another need without a viable replacement on the roster.

      With only 34 players under contract and just 5 draft picks it could make for an interesting offseason.

    • cha


      (big, big gap)


      • Hoggs41

        Will be interesting to watch these four. I think Carson, Wright and Pocic could all be around $6m a year where Griffin could be double that. I think all of them besides Pocic make it to free agency and Pocic will be the first to sign.

  17. Chase

    Why do you think Ja’maar Chase will go before Devonta Smith?

    • Rob Staton

      Watch the 2019 college football season

  18. charlietheunicorn


    If you had Alvin Kamara in your FF Playoff Championship…. you won (already)!

    • Big Mike

      How many points did he end up with in a PPR league?
      I ask cuz when I played, that’s the type of league I was in.

      • Big Mike

        I’m assuming over 60?

        • charlietheunicorn

          25 touches for 170
          6 TD

          6 x 6 = 36
          170 = 17 points
          (Might be bonuses for over 50, 100 and 150)
          25 touches = 25 points (unless only true catches then 3 points)

          Somewhere in the 70-85 point range.

    Another ringing endorsement for the Seahawks medical staff…

    Joe Fann
    Ken Norton said Quinton Dunbar “wasn’t 100%” since the day he arrived in Seattle. That’s not a great endorsement for Dunbar as he goes into free agency.
    3:27 PM · Dec 23, 2020

    • charlietheunicorn

      I just completely do not understand how they constantly have issues identifying injuries and then dealing with the injuries during re-hab. They do a decent job on rehab, but some guys never make it back….. and these guys/gals are the ones who sign off on draft-picks with injury concerns and it seems like they almost always whiff on the guys with major injury concerns.

      It also is maddening, Seattle is one the centers of the universe for medical research and development. Tremendous talent lies within 100 miles of Seahawks HQ…. tap the talent.

      Maybe this is just my perception, but I would have less faith in their evaluation on a guy with injury history within the upcoming draft. I guess I just don’t know what to think about guys with medical concerns….. and if you sing a guy to a contract, knowing he isn’t right and may not last the season…. then that is even worse. (Clowney sort of falls into the camp, imagine paying 15M for him, then his knee gave out 2/3 of the way through the season)

      • 12th chuck

        It’s got to be be Pete’s preference to have “elite” athletes and not bamf

    • Big Mike

      Darrell Taylor doesn’t like this post.

    • Scot04

      If he wasn’t 100% when he got here they should have called off the trade. I guess we just like to give picks for players unready to play. They need an overhaul in their team that does the medical evaluations.

  20. millhouse-serbia

    Looks like tomorow we are playing for home field advantage vs Ramsin two weeks.

    • millhouse-serbia

      If DET somehow beat TB today then it will be :

      1. vsLAR, @NO
      2. @WFT, @GB

      What would you choose? I will take 2.

      • charlietheunicorn

        SEA #3 vs TAM #6
        WST #4 vs LA R #5
        NO #2 vs #7 AZ #7

        Would be the best scenario. AZ could give the Saints fits….. Brees isn’t fully recovered.
        Washington can chew up Goff and he might fold the tent.
        Tampa is a bit of a fraud to me, very uneven sometimes. Make them travel and get out of the heat…. could freeze the Bucs in SEA.

        Every single team in the NFC has flaws, unlike Chiefs and Bills who look legit on fire right now.

      • Rob Staton

        I’ll only pick GB on the road after Seattle under Carroll plays a game at Lambeau and doesn’t s**t the bed.

        • Big Mike

          And I can only pick a game vs. the Rams home or away when Carroll proves he isn’t McVay’s bitch. Hasn’t happened so far.
          To me the only path to the Super Bowl at this point in time involves not playing the Rams and not playing in GB. Maybe Sunday will change my mind about that first part.

        • BruceN

          Last year in the playoffs we gave GB all it could handle with no RBs, no TEs, Flowers getting picked apart by Rodgers and Amadi as a rookie covering Adams in the end. Seattle plays well on the big stage (and Sadly plays down to it’s lesser opponent) and for once we are approaching the post season fairly healthy. Flowers is replaced (upgraded) by Reed and Amadi is a better player now. We also added Dunlap (same or an upgrade over Clowney) and Adams. My main concern is game planning on both side of the ball.

          • Rob Staton

            That’s not how I remember the game last season.

            We got into a massive hole, Wilson did his usual magic trick to make it close, but alas it was all for nothing

            • BruceN

              Yes, notorious for starting slow, we did fall behind 21-3 at the half before losing a close game at 28-23. Should be noted we were playing with Lynch and Turbin who were signed off the street. Plus Rodgers and Adams feasted on Flowers for 160 yards and 2 TDs. None of those factors are in play now. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not suggesting we are a much better team. But we’ll have a decent chance.

  21. charlietheunicorn

    I was just looking at the numbers for Punter Michael Dickson.
    Legit shot he could get an ALLPRO nod.

      Yeah good shot. Too bad he wasn’t Pro Bowl worthy (rolls eyes).

    Any opinion on Justyn Ross from Clemson? Seems to be a similar situation to DK, ie extremely talent receiver who has a scary neck injury. Do you see him possibly being a target if his neck is deemed good to go or you think it’ll scare off every team? Have a great new years

  25. GoHawksDani

    I like that you’re thinking outside the box but I see almost zero chance they’re picking Landon.
    They have huge needs everywhere. They like Pocic and also…mmm…forget the guy’s name who popped in for the Rams game 😀 both played really well this year. And I think they’ll be very risk averse after Taylor. Imagine the Taylor pick and a risky pick health-wise. If it wouldn’t work out JS would pretty much risk his job in a major way.
    If an elite CB or DE drops because of health concerns they might…if someone drops because character concerns or might be a bit rough technique-wise they could pull the trigger. They had positive experiences with those. But they had a ton of bad luck with injuries for early picks (McDowell, Taylor, Penny). Most of these are bad luck but as they usually err on the safe side especially after they get burnt I really doubt they can risk it.

    • Rob Staton

      Don’t assume they’ll be able to retain Pocic

      • Scot04

        No one saw us taking a LB with our 1st pick either. Then as a team with a ton of safety depth trade for Adams. In regards to Landon, if he didn’t have the injury issue he’d likely be late 1st round. You need to watch the guy play.
        Before they do anything they need to know what they are doing with Adams. Either extend him or trade him. Would love for them to have most things set up before the draft so we can just go BPA.

  26. cha

    Olsen and Mone activated.

    Penny Hart will be the practice squad elevation this week.

  27. Mick

    I wonder how many teams in need of RB would take a chance on Carson’s health in a year when so many other options are available in free agency. But I wouldn’t want to see him in the ugly SF jersey just cause we didn’t estimate right, so I’d rather tag him.

    KJ I’d love to see him stay on a lower salary. Maybe we can also keep Pocic, unless he really wants to go.

    With Shaq I’m not sure, very likely Dunbar will also leave us, so losing two CBs would be a bit tough. I’d even consider going CB with the first pick of the draft, but I’m not sure what’s still available when we pick.

    • Rob Staton


    • charlietheunicorn

      They have some options. Try to get/retain DJ Reed as one fo the outside CBs, Neal also looks good when he gets on the field and Udo Amadi have played well in the 3rd CB/3rd Safety role, which leaves only the opposite CB spot…. I would prefer an in-house solution. Stephens, Thorpe, Blair or Flowers? Not sure if they give what you need…. Dunbar has too many injury concerns to be viable imo. I know Rob would love for Sherman to return, but he also has had a rash of injuries (2017-2020) the last few years… and if you are spending limited FA bucks on him, might not be the right move.

      • Rob Staton

        I can’t compute the preference of having Stephens, Thorpe, Flowers or a safety over Richard Sherman.

  28. charlietheunicorn

    Interesting breakdown on how Seattle has been employing Adams to create sacks this season. Briefly touches on how they have changed the defensive philosophy from 4 man pressure scheme to a blitz heavy scheme…. and how teams have tried to neutralize it… specifically the fire blitzes mentioned in the video. It also explains communication has been the biggest issue in the explosive plays given up by Seattle in the passing game…

  29. Mark

    Rob, what are your thoughts on Kayvon Thibodeaux out of Oregon? Could he be a target for the Seahawks in 2022 or 2023?

    • Rob Staton

      Well they don’t have a R1 pick in 2022.

      • Mark

        Fair point, lol. Thanks.

        • Paul Cook

          If healthy, Thibodeaux will turn pro next year. He could be a top 5 pick, certainly a top 10 pick. So forget the Hawks.

  30. cha

    I said last year that Robert Saleh was getting a lot of HC heat solely off the backs of a ton of high draft picks.

    I was wrong. He’s been great this year with all that talent on IR.

    • OP_Chillin

      Yes! He’s been much more impressive this year coaching through the injuries.

    • charlietheunicorn

      I suspect Sherman will follow Salah to his new landing spot…. Detroit. 😀

      Indeed. And this Niners team is going to be a tough out in Week 17 the way the Hawks have been playing.

      • Rob Staton

        Arizona has played this game like they can’t be arsed though. Low energy, filled with mistakes.

        Hopefully Seattle takes care of business.

        • OP_Chillin

          Good point. Also the cards run D is terrible and Hawks is very good which can force the niners out of their comfort zone. But man if Beathard lights us up that will just feel terrible, even if a W.

  33. Paul Cook

    The Cards dump an important game and not looking good at all in doing so.

    On a side note. The Vikings defense yesterday reminded me of the Hawks defense the first two thirds of the season. I wanted the Vikes to win for obvious reasons, but I finally threw up my arms and said Eff It! They are incapable of stopping the Saints offense.

        • Kenny Sloth

          Hey, more incentive for the Bears to beat the Packers so we can take the 1 seed.

          • BruceN

            Good point. Forgot about that. And the win secures the Niners a lower pick. All around a good outcome.

        • charlietheunicorn

          Their star WR and LB both went out with injuries during the game and didn’t return according to reports (I didn’t watch it)… so they could really be hitting rock bottom going into week #17.

          • BruceN

            They’ve been decimated all season but their D and Saleh confused and harassed Murray all game. This week Kittle insisted he wanted to play and next week JimmyG is coming back. At 6-9 they have no quit in them. So we can’t take week 17 game for granted.

  39. Sea Mode

    Wait, what? I have questions.

    Tom Pelissero

    #Seahawks DT Damon “Snacks” Harrison asked for his release after learning he’d be inactive today against the #Rams, and the team plans to grant it next week, per sources. Seattle loves Snacks and hopes he has a change of heart, but seems his mind is made up. He’d go on waivers.

    • Rob Staton

      Meh. Haven’t even noticed him TBH.

      Mone was better.

      • Sea Mode

        Right, just weird to me after how he reportedly turned down other teams at various points this season to stay with us, and him being a veteran and knowing we will be in the playoffs.

        • Rob Staton

          I can see his point though. This might be it for him. He doesn’t want to finish his career as a healthy scratch.

          • Tony

            You would think he would be into being on a playoff team and getting paid in playoffs with a chance for a ring. But i guess ego prevails over all.

    • Scot04

      Seems like u would want as many healthy big bodies ready going into the playoffs. If Mone or Ford gets hurt our depth goes down quickly with Snacks gone. He definitely took up space and kept wags and Kj a little cleaner. A little surprising to me this late. Especially now he’s pretty much in game shape. I was looking forward to a good rotation to keep them healthy for playoffs.

      • clbradley17

        Agree 100% Scot04. The only part I didn’t like was airing his dirty laundry on Twitter or wherever for all to see. But he stayed here even when others tried to poach him and is getting paid 1/10th the price he’s been making the last decade, and now that he’s put in months of work to get in shape and finally playing better, they scratch him and play our 5th/6th string practice squad WR Penny Hart instead? He gave up being at home with his new baby, risking Covid when a lot of other big OL and DL didn’t this year and wants to play for the Seahawks more than any other team, but we’re showing by the scratch it’s not a 2 way street. He’s been playing better plugging the middle and even forced a fumble recently, now we’re throwing him out like the trash. Who wouldn’t want to get a chance with another team that wants him after all he’s done to stay here and play?

  40. Trevor

    My Sunday wish list.

    -Hawks feature Carson and get him rolling heading into playoffs
    -Russ starts to look like Russ from weeks 1-6 not the Russ from the last 9 weeks.
    -Defense shows it can defend the edges against the Rams and stop the run
    -DK wins a matchup with Ramsey
    *Most importantly the Hawks win and Derrick Henry runs for 200yds as the Titans beat the snot out of a soft Packers team.

    • TomLPDX

      I have a feeling the Packers are going to get run over by the Titans.

      We definitely need the cooking Russ today if we want to win. Here’s hoping for 5 TDs!

      • Hoggs41

        The interesting thing for us is the Titans game means nothing for us. Win or lose we need the Bears to beat the Packers or we cant catch them.

      • Lewis

        If an efficient 250 yards with 3 TDs and no ints, supported by a strong run game qualifies as “cooking”, sign me up. otherwise, no thanks.

  41. Rob Staton

    This is 2020 in a nutshell.

    Biggest game of the season in a few hours and we have to deal with Snacks Harrison tweeting away about how he wants to leave because he’s a healthy scratch today.

    Social media.

    Can honestly say if I was a GM I would have a grade for whether or not players bother with twitter or Instagram or Tiktok etc.

    • mantis

      The one thing the hawks have this year going into the playoffs is health and depth, but now have lost dunbar, gordon and snacks so the depth is getting thin, yuck!

      • clbradley17

        Hate that the players air their feelings and grievences on social media too. But the reason he’s leaving is because after he came out of semi-retirement and took weeks to get in shape, turned down other teams, is finally looking better and pushing the pocket and forcing fumbles, we scratch him in favor of a former UFA in the biggest game of the year so far. We can’t rotate him and scratch Penny Hart or anyone else? Especially with Reed partially injured and Mone coming off an injury? Thanks Pete or whoever’s stupid decision this is.

    • BruceN

      Agree with you. I still remember Antonio Brown secretly streaming Tomlin’s locker room talk on FB.

      Is Mone that much of an improvement over Snacks? He has had a good couple of games after getting in shape. I would hate to lose him to GB, giving them a fresh healthy body at the end of the season.

    • Mike

      Honestly who cares that he wants to be released. It’s really a non story that people make a big deal out of.

      He’s a pretty average run stuffer at this point in his career and then has to go on social media and be super dramatic about it. There is such a lack of self awareness.

      • cha

        Well let’s not get carried away. Nothing “super dramatic” here.

        Super dramatic is Antonio Brown posting a private phone call with Gruden, and then posting himself dancing in his backyard in glee when he found out he’d been released from the Raiders.

        • Mike

          True. I don’t think anyone compares to the craziness that is Antonio brown.

          I just think people talk about snacks a lot and make a big deal about him when he is an aging rotational run stuffer.

    • Big Mike

      Agee 100% Rob. You wanna play on social media or do you wanna play winning football?

      • clbradley17

        How’s he going to PLAY winning football when he’s not even in the game and a healthy scratch? We’re treating him like injured rookie Collier last year, but he’s healthy and improving, almost like he was just a placeholder for Mone and not a contributor at all. Don’t blame him for being upset, just hope as has been reported, that he doesn’t play a factor in stuffing Carson etc. for Green Bay, Tampa Bay or some other team we play in 2-3 weeks. What if Reed, Mone or Poona are hurt or tweaked as Pete says, early in the game? Was it really more important to get a 5th or 6th string WR Penny Hart up from the practice squad into the game?

  42. Paul Cook

    Props to the NFL for giving us pretty much a full football season so far.

    I was a little surprised hearing that Harrison was made a healthy scratch. I liked the depth they were building up on the line with some players returning from injury. You never know what can happen the next few games injury-wise.

    Psyched for this game. We can win the division for the first time since 2016. That would be a helluva accomplishment given the disappointing off-season and this up and down season.

    What I’m thinking now…

    –Impose our will with the ground game as much as we can…
    –I like screen passes and the TE’s getting involved (they usually get pressure on RW)

    Let’s get this win.

    • cha


      This made me LOL. The Rams’ QB wearing black eye shadow and listening to Joy Division.

  43. Big Mike

    I see the graphic that TJ Watt has the most QB pressures in the NFL, then I watch him strip sack Rivers and turn the game around and I just get sad for what could have been. 🙁

    • clbradley17

      I remember a LOT of people here pounding the table for Watt after his great season at Wisconsin and excelling at the combine. With the 2-3 trade downs before taking the Calais Campbell of the future in DT Malik McDowell, we could have drafted either Watt or Pro Bowl RT Ramczyk of NO, also from Wisconsin.

  44. cha

    So there’s one roadmap for how the Saints can get out of the cap mess they’re in.

    Feels like the piece is a bit rosy in its conclusion though in saying that the Saints aren’t in rough shape:

    The proposed moves get them to zero – no room for paying their draft picks and no room to retain any free agents.

    As well:

    -getting rid of their two top CBs
    -lots of OL and DL depth gutted
    -swapping Brees for Hill isn’t an upgrade – and they extend Hill to lower their cap, tying themselves to him for the foreseeable future
    -the proposed restructure guys are all in their late 20’s or 30’s. It’s not a winning proposition to assume all of those restructures will be productive at age 33-35 to the tune of a $20m/year cap number.

    It’s not gonna be pretty.

    • Tony

      I believe you gotta trade Micheal thomas and some other pieces. But no matter what they do, they are in teardown territory.

    • Lewis

      The league is expected to go to 17 games next year and there’s a new tv contract to be negotiated. In addition, the player revenue share is going to increase, so the cap is likely going to be a bit higher than currently expected.

      Refs called a ticky tack block in the back on our old friend mark Glowinski that cost the Colts at least 3 and maybe 7 late in the first half. Score was already 21-7 Colts so of course I was immediately suspicious they were helping the stealers stay close. Don’t know why I’d think such a thing. I mean the stealers have never benefitted from refs calls before.

    Ian Rapoport

    The NFL is expected to add a 17th game to the regular season in 2021, sources say. A look at how the dramatic move will change the landscape of the season, along with what it means for the salary cap.

    The story from me and @TomPelissero:

    • clbradley17

      Hopefully between this and I heard the NFL is also signing new multi-billion $ TV contracts in the offseason, the salary cap will go up and not stay the same as been reported in recent months.

    • Paul Cook

      I suppose that means we’re down to like a 2 game preseason then, right? Do we get another bye week?

    • Scot04

      I hope they keep they expanded practice squads and new rules include with it. Like the protection and eligibility to be called up twicr before waivers. I thought it’s been a plus for teams and players

      • clbradley17

        And the new IR rules where they can place several players on IR without losing them for the season, only 3 weeks or so. The new IR and practice squad rules and bigger practice squads as Scot04 points out would be things to keep permanently.

        I’d be fine with just 2 pre-season games. With the vaccines next year, we should be able to do all the year round conditioning in 2021 so the players can stay in shape and we can medically test FAs and draftable players so there aren’t any big surprises like this year.

        Now if they can only make it so all players are active for game day. That would not only help in case of in-game injuries, but we wouldn’t be losing Snacks.

    Hey I know, let’s throw into triple coverage

    • Big Mike

      Probably should be down 7-0 with Russ continuing his collapse.
      Prove us wrong Russ. Turn it the hell around starting next possession.

  65. James Kupihea

    Hey look, it’s the Darryl Bevell offense…

    • James Kupihea


  66. Tony

    Kj has been amazing.

  67. Blitzy the Clown

    KJ is money

  68. Blitzy the Clown

    Cooper Kupp is a guy I love to hate

    • James Kupihea

      The ball is 100% going to Kupp there…and he still gets it. lol

  69. Matt

    I hate being that guy…but we are 4.5 mins into this and feeling like the same old story.

    • Rob Staton


      • Matt

        I honest to God think PC believes 3rd and 5 is a really good place to be on offense.

  70. cha

    Great formation. Drop Rasheem Green in coverage and just have him stand there and do nothing.

    • Matt

      Another week of being out coached.

      • BigSmooth13

        Pete Carroll is a better coach than Sean mcVay

  71. Blitzy the Clown

    Cmon man. Get off the damn field on 3rd down ffs

  72. Mick

    Griffin not really proving a point…

  73. James Kupihea

    Seattle can’t get out of its own way, more than LA can’t get out of theirs.

  74. cha

    Sure. 3rd & 4 let’s drop Carlos Dunlap in coverage

    • Sea Mode

      Saw that

  75. OP_Chillin

    That’s three third downs converted on this drive right?

    • Big Mike

      Yep and I believe the shortest of those was 6 yds. Would been another 3rd down fail if Goff didn’t suck.

  76. KennyBadger

    Get off the field defense…

  77. Sea Mode

    Please, a 3rd down stop…

    • Sea Mode

      Well, it took a WR drop, but we got it…

  78. Matt

    Let’s get to 3rd and long; and not convert. We can do this.

  79. Big Mike

    Thrown behind him. Goff sucks

  80. cha

    Here we go, short passing, rolling out, getting RW some juice

    Looks like Ogbuehi in at RT.

  81. Kenny Sloth

    Easy win incoming, y’all.


    • Rob Staton

      Kenny, we don’t need to do this. Let people react to a poor start.

      • Kenny Sloth

        Could you not single me out, im not doing anything wrong

  82. Blitzy the Clown

    Wilson should’ve kept it there

    • Tony

      His decision making on keeps is predetermined. And hes always predetermined to hand it off.

  83. Blitzy the Clown

    Triple teaming Donald is a recipe for sacks

  84. Gohawks5151

    Lockett wide open at the sticks. Hold onto it and get sacked…

    • Big Mike

      O line blocking fail. 3 guys on Donald, none on the guy that got the sack
      Not that russ isn’t broken cuz he is

  85. Mick

    So far D looks decent, ST looks great, O looks lame…

  86. Rokas

    Here goes our MVP with another 3rd down sack taken after holding the ball forever.

  87. Bmseattle

    Its difficult to reconcile Russ being “elite”, with how terrible we are on 3erd down.

  88. pdway

    russell had lockett for the first there. didnt pull the trigger.

    • Sea Mode

      to be fair, the defender was right in his passing lane…

  89. Sea Mode

    Lockett was open there too, sat down in the zone.

    Anyways, I noticed Ramsey was not shadowing DK on at least a couple snaps of that drive. Why not go to him when they get a good matchup?

  90. Big Mike

    Uh oh, 3rd and long

  91. Blitzy the Clown

    Nice play by Mayowa

  92. cha

    MUCH better!

  93. Big Mike

    Offense with field position yet again. Have done nothing with it so far.

  94. Kenny Sloth

    Jamal Adams is so freaking good at football.

    Literally one of the best all-around ball players I’ve ever seen.

  95. Matt

    We are 20 minutes away from being able to legally target DK for an offensive play. Very pumped.

    • Matt

      Holy hell we threw a pass to DK in Q1!

      • Kenny Sloth

        I was just gonna say. At least we targeted him.

        DK left Ramsay in the dust on that comeback route

        • Sea Mode

          He was open a lot the last time we played the Rams as well, it’s just a question of whether we can keep Russ clean enough to get it to him.

  96. BoiseSeahawk

    When are we going to get smart and put someone other than our second best corner in to return punts? If Reed got hurt returning a punt for 5 yards… just not worth it.

  97. KD

    “Sir Caryl! Why did you order a cavalry charge at the start?”

    -Well, we knew it was going to be a siege, so we wanted to be aggressive from the start, and the Dothraki were very aggressive.

    “But sir, the Dothraki are all dead”

    -Yeah, that was an unfortunate setback but we’ve waived Dorn and Yara’s fleet and we’ll be calling up more Unsullied and Dothraki from the practice squad. They should be here by episode 5 or 6.

    “Sir Caryl, when the retreat was sounded, all of the Unsullied were killed trying to protect trebuchets. Why were the trebuchets and Unsullied outside of the wall to begin with?”

    -Well, during a siege, it’s really important to be aggressive, so we wanted to establish the cavalry early and come out strong. Like I said, We weren’t anticipating losing the Dothraki, the Unsullied and our artillery that early, but at the end it turned out to be a good battle and we managed to come out on top. I also want to shout out to Jon who did an outstanding job yelling at the enemy dragon. He hasn’t had much of a role this season but I really think his yelling at the dragon helped turn the tide. Outstanding job.

    “Sir, you had two dragons and an enemy that instantly dies when they come in contact with fire. Why didn’t you just wait for the main force to arrive and burn them all?”

    -Well we wanted to make sure that the dragons were limited in action because we’ll be needing both of them for episode 5, and we also didn’t want to tip our hand too early because we were confident in the Dothraki….just didn’t work out as anticipated.

  98. Kenny Sloth

    Man is this offense waking tf up? Lets put some points up

  99. TomLPDX

    Alright, moving the sticks. c’mon Seattle…

  100. Sea Mode

    Metcalf and Carson. That’s what we want some more of!

  101. Sea Mode

    Great pass pro!

  102. Kenny Sloth

    Jalen Hurts has a really special mentality

  103. James Kupihea

    The problem here, is they’re not establishing David Moore.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Everyone so down on Moore, I think he’s one of the best #3’s in the league

      • Sea Mode

        He’s been really slow-footed as of late, Kenny. But yeah, he seems to be good for a clutch TD bomb every few games.

      • James Kupihea

        just a joke man, didn’t even get down on him 😀

        • Kenny Sloth

          It was pretty funny, too

      • Jordan E

        Disagree. I can think of a bunch of teams with far better #3 WRs. TB, Pitt, Bills, Dallas and Arizona to name a few. Mediocrity should not be praised imo. Esp if the goal is to win a SB.

        • Kenny Sloth

          Seahawks fans would go nuts with all of Deontay Johnson’s drops, but ok

          • Jordan E

            D. Moore has like 300 yards for the year… Let’s be real plug in any average 3rd WR in the offense and should get similar production.

    • Tony

      Im dying over this 🤣🤣🤣

  104. Matt

    So…are we officially worried about RW yet? He looks washed. Sad.

    • Kenny Sloth


    • Jordan E

      For real. The level of regression from Russ is just astounding… He does not even look like the same player

      • Matt

        He looks…terrible. This is shocking, really.

    • Henry Taylor

      Yeah nah man lets not get carried away.

      • Matt

        We are way passed “a few bad games.”

  105. OP_Chillin

    Russ with a great play on that 3rd down showing comfort in the pocket. Then a wide open miss, then drops his head and runs straight into a sack. Sigh.

  106. Mick

    Myers for MVP 🙂

  107. cha

    They’re playing the Rams game. Let’s do 5 step drops and see who’s open.

    They just can’t do that.

  108. Kenny Sloth

    Tie Ball Game!!!!

    Lets get a turnover

  109. Big Mike

    That is what happens when the quarterback is sacked constantly and begins to see ghosts he throws the ball too quickly

    Not that there shouldn’t have been a penalty because there should have

    • Sea Mode

      Yeah, Russ definitely had an axe to grind there.

    • Kenny Sloth

      And then Pocic doesnt pick up the stunt.

      Makes Russ look bad.

      • Lewis

        There have been a LOT of sacks this year I thought were on RW. That one was not

        • Kenny Sloth

          Yeah I agree. Russ has always run into sacks so I dont buy the ‘broken’ or ‘seeing ghosts’ narratives.

          Something is slightly off. Couldnt imagine what

  110. pdway

    shouldve been an illegal contact call on that hit on Hollister. looked like it slowed him enough to miss that TD throw.

  111. Tony

    Not sure how to fix rw. This stretch from game 4 to now is maddening. Would love a top tier te. Maybe in the draf….oh yeah, nevermind.

  112. Kenny Sloth

    Man, I am FIRED UP for this defense

    • Kenny Sloth

      Guess the extra player was too

    • Matt

      Sometimes I think you are Pete Carroll’s burner account.

      • Kenny Sloth

        Tremendous tremendous effort there. Really pleased with our guys and all that

    • Rik

      I really don’t know what you’re watching. We’re getting killed on 3rd down.

      • Rob Staton

        I think he’s trolling a bit Rik

        • Kenny Sloth


      • Kenny Sloth

        Im watching a 6-3 divisional game.

        We’re playing better than we have in the past against this team.

  113. Pran

    Hate to see Goff play better than Elite MVP Russ…

  114. Rob Staton

    It’s 3-3 but Seattle feels scratchy and unsettled and the Rams seem to have some fluidity and control.

  115. Rob Staton

    Jamal Adams can’t catch to save his life

    • Lewis

      The broken fingers probably don’t help, but yeah

    • Mick

      The German commentators blame it on his broken fingers.

    • Bmseattle

      Imagine how many 1st rounders we would have given up for him if he could, tho!

    • cha

      Talk about burying the lede

  116. spartacus

    Rob Gronkowski just felt some phantom pain in his chest

  117. TomLPDX

    Adams has lead hands

    • Rohan Raman

      He also is playing with broken fingers. Have u tried catching a football with broken fingers?

      • TomLPDX

        That’s no excuse! 😉

      • Lewis

        I can’t catch a ball without broken fingers.

  118. Kenny Sloth

    What an athletic play by Adams.

    • Sea Mode

      Yeah, but arguably got away with a holding there

      • OP_Chillin

        I mean if the play against Hollister was a penalty that was too. I say let em both go glad the refs did.

        • Sea Mode

          True. Either that or call them both.

  119. cha

    How do you play a team 2x a year, and you’re still constantly repositioning and yelling at each other on defense right up to the snap?

  120. Sea Mode

    Lol, Adams is a meme at this point…

  121. Tony

    Adams drops pick. Talks like he returned it to house.

  122. Sea Mode

    3rd and long, their favorite down…

  123. Mick

    Luckily Goff isn’t in much better form than RW.

    • Big Mike

      No he is not.
      I keep praying Russell finds it again but hope is fading.

  124. Blitzy the Clown

    How was that not holding by whoever was blocking Dunlap?

    • OP_Chillin

      They ain’t calling holding much at all this year. Plus you could find holding on 10x more snaps than get called, even “egregious” holding.

    • Tony

      At this point, holding is a crapshoot call. Based on the whim feeling of wanting to effect the game in some way. Like proving to your boss youre working by randomly sweeping an area to fill in some time before closing.

  125. Kenny Sloth

    Bahahha Goff gonna Goff

    • Sea Mode


      Feel like once McVay is out of his ear, things go wrong for him.

      • Kenny Sloth

        I thought you said “when McVay is out this year” I was like man wishful thinking much

    • Lewis

      Good thing he is terrified of running

  126. Rob Staton

    The good news is it’s only 6-3.

    Because this has not been a good first half at all

    • Sea Mode

      Correct. But which coaching staff would I put my money on to adjust first? I’d rather not say…

    • Hawks4life


    • Tony

      My fear is losing control and going down 10 or more based on offense ineptitude. Then rams tee off on russ down the stretch. Basically replaying the first game vs the rams. Where we are not out of it by score, but by the utter feeling that theres no way seattle can overcome this huge 7 point déficit.

  127. cha

    Bob Condotta
    Now Adams heads into Seahawks locker room. May be trying to figure out best way to wrap fingers or having them looked at more.

      He better rush back after a Russ dead duck 🦆 pass and another dismall three and out. Yeh.

  128. Big Mike

    Offense is shit yet again

  129. Rob Staton

    Offense playing like absolute shite again

    • cha

      That was a wildly bad throw by RW.

      What happened to the “Best deep ball in the NFL” ?

      He’s just off. Something is wrong.

    • Rokas

      It’s really a joke. Seems that defense is becoming a lesser liability than the offense.

  130. Blitzy the Clown

    Tell me again nothing’s wrong with Wilson 🙄

    • Rob Staton

      Has looked shot for weeks

      • Blitzy the Clown

        That deep ball to DK says it all. It just floated and wandered on him. Usually, that’s a dime dropped into DK’s breadbasket.

  131. Matt

    I repeat…it’s time to legitimately worry about RW.

    • Big Mike


    • James Kupihea

      He just blind threw that deep ball. If you have DVR, go back and look. Not even looking where he’s throwing.

      • Blitzy the Clown

        Hey if Fitzmagic can do it, so should Dangruss

        • James Kupihea

          I’m afraid Russ doesn’t have a thick enough beard for that.

  132. Big Mike

    Pass to DK over wrong shoulder

  133. Volume12

    Seattle is leaving too many plays on the field. A lot to be had so far.

    • Volume12

      Both sides

      • Kenny Sloth


  134. Sea Mode

    Dickson is badass…

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Seahawks kicking game is tops in the League

  135. Pran

    That’s a bad throw on that deep shot. This offense has no rhythm and no plan. Pete and Russ sucks. Just pound the damn ball and make Russ rush a few times…at least we can kill the clock.

  136. pdway

    hawks D doing as well as we could possibly hope for – esp given the way they were earlier this year.

    its crazy how shaky our offense looks now – and this current version of #3 doesnt seem to have any answers .

  137. Bmseattle

    Has our offense been below average more often than good over the course of the season?
    Its difficult to argue that the first 5 games arent the aberration, at this point.

    • Rob Staton

      Without question

  138. Mike

    Might be a hot take but kj Wright is the best player on the defense

    • Rob Staton

      Maybe we can trade him for two firsts

      • Mike


  139. Big Mike

    Completely agree

  140. Kenny Sloth

    Top 5 D in the last 6 weeks? What a strange team.

    Pete is a monster of a coach

  141. OP_Chillin

    Tight coverage by adams!

  142. Big Mike

    Outstanding play by Adams there

  143. Blitzy the Clown

    Finally a decent coverage play by Adams

  144. Jordan E

    Adams is a really good player. But still not worth the 2 first rounders and a 3rd imo.

  145. Rob Staton

    Well done Ryan Neal 🤡

  146. Big Mike

    Very very bad penalty

  147. Volume12

    Adams is something else. Been everywhere today. Elite in the box, elite blitzer, if they can get him halfway way there coverage wise? Whew

  148. Kenny Sloth


  149. Blitzy the Clown

    Dammit roughing the kicker

  150. Matt

    This f***ing team…

  151. OP_Chillin

    Bloody hell we just can’t have that!

    How dare Neal postpone the next 3 and out on offense!

    • James Kupihea

      3 and out you say…

      • James Kupihea

        We’ll meet in the middle and take the pick 😀 !

      • Kenny Sloth

        He meant our offense will go 3+out

  152. Dinosaw


  153. Blitzy the Clown

    Hope that penalty doesn’t loom large down the stretch

    • Tony

      This team. Sigh. So mistake prone.

  154. Blitzy the Clown

    Brooks starting to pop here and there.

    • Volume12

      Played real well

  155. James Kupihea

    why try to block that….AT ALL. The field position…

    • Kenny Sloth

      The TD?

    • cha

      Have you SEEN this offense today?

  156. Kenny Sloth

    KJ taking scalps

  157. Blitzy the Clown

    Generous spot

  158. Pran

    Let’s face it..Pete couldn’t put together one good game in all phases all season. Time to retire..

  159. Big Mike

    Why is it that Pete challenges when he shouldn’t and doesn’t when he should?

  160. pdway

    D is gonna wear down. you can feel it.

    on the field all half.

  161. Kenny Sloth

    The only thing worse than the Seahawks in this game is Jared Goff

    • Pran

      Got 3 more points than Russ though

  164. Blitzy the Clown

    There we go!

  165. Matt

    Goff and RW putting on some of the worst QB play I’ve seen in quite some time.

    • James Kupihea

      Somewhere, right now, they’re inspiring the next Ryan Leaf.

  166. Kenny Sloth

    Goff seahawks mvp

  167. spartacus

  168. Jordan E

    OK Quandre. Earning that PB nod this year

    • Kenny Sloth

      I’m sayin.

      Dude is quality

  169. Sea Mode

  170. Volume12

    Let’s gooooooo! They finally make 1 of those plays that have been there all game. O

  171. Denver Hawker

    Diggs showing up more as the season goes on. Great to see.

  172. Mick

    Yey Diggs. I’ve never seen such a clueless QB like Goff out of the pocket.

  173. Dinosaw

    If Donald and mcvay had a half decent qb they would be unstoppable..

  174. Henry Taylor

    Diggs is the master of having picks thrown right at him with no recievers in anywhere near.

    • Big Mike


  175. Blitzy the Clown

    I think Alton Robinson has a future

  180. Dinosaw

    Why does Russ not take what he’s given.dump off passes.grrh

    • Tony

      He has many strengths. But some big weaknesses. 1 beong intermediate middle routes.

  181. Big Mike

    Rams D is good but Hawks making them look like 75 stealers.

  182. downtownjewelrybryan

    holes are starting to open up and we stop giving it to our hammer

  183. James Kupihea

    They need to give Hyde the ball too. Chip away at these linebackers.

  184. Sea Mode

    So do you think it’s safe to say that, although we did not fix our pass rush this off-season, we did at least manage to improve our team speed on defense to match up with NFCW offenses?

    • James Kupihea

      It’d be nice to believe that, but most NFC offenses have been a steaming pile of hot garbage.

      Jimmy G – Hot Garbage
      Jared G – Hot Garbage you’re watching right now
      Kyler M – Playing better, just young. NOT GARBAGE.
      RusS – Hot Garbage you watch weekly.

  186. Bmseattle

    “Breaking news” everybody.
    Apparently, Pittsburgh has won the AFC north.
    I’m pretty sure I’m the first to see that…

    • Jordan E

      lmao right?? They’ve played it like 10 times.

  187. TomLPDX

    I HATE Troy Aikman

  188. Mick

    That throw to DK is exactly what we need to keep doing.

  189. Blitzy the Clown

    That sack was so unnecessary

  190. Big Mike

    Drop by DK might have cost us 7

    • Kenny Sloth


    • Pran

      DK should have caught but that’s not a good placement by Russ

    • Matt

      It was a terrible throw against an elite CB. That has to be in his gut, not above the shoulder pads.

  191. Bmseattle

    Were all the routes deep on third and short?!
    What the hell!?

  192. Rokas

    I really can’t look at Wilson anymore. He is becoming horrific.

    • TomLPDX

      Is he scared?

    • Tony

      Watching that 3rd down sack for the 344th time during rw career. All like the rest. Might as well be a replay.

      • Kenny Sloth

        Its not a new thing. Russ is the same as ever. It’s the turnovers that kill us

        • lil’stink

          This. Wilson has always had stretches of great play, but he also seems to have more struggles than the truly ‘elite’ QB’s. He is who he always has been.

          But the Rams defense is legit and has something to do with Wilson’s play.

      • Rokas

        These sacks for holding onto the ball forever. Angry Doug and Sherm would not be pleased with that 🙂

    • JC3

      Wilson has not been clutch since Bills’ game. Is he broken?

  193. Jesse Lanouette

    We just make it so hard on ourselves its pathetic. If I hear Pete say we’re optimistic we can fix things one more time ill lose my shit.

  194. OP_Chillin

    Okay so 3rd and 6 you have 2 receivers run vertical. Tight end runs vertical. RB checkdown is covered. How are we supposed to be successful with that? Pull the damn coverage apart with crossing routes, routes run to different levels of the same area of the field, etc.

    • Big Mike

      I want a new OC

  195. Blitzy the Clown

    Did the Rams launder their unis with a pink shirt and hot water?

  203. Dinosaw

    Has Aaron Donald ever been injured?

    • OP_Chillin

      Usually has a QB under him to break his fall so he’s fine

      • Big Mike

        Damn now that was awesome!

      • Kenny Sloth


  204. James Kupihea

    Andy Dalton playing like a dang monster.

  205. Matt

    Great decision to scramble…man he legit sucks now.

    • Jordan E

      Like are we being harsh on Wilson? Yes… Is it justified? Yes… RW is paid alot alot of $$$. If he doesn’t step up his contract will really set this team back.

      • Kenny Sloth

        True. I think this might be the first time in his career that expectations are higher than his output. He’s almost always been punching up in this league

  206. James Cr.

    Does RW understand situational football? I don’t get what he is thinking sometimes.

  207. Chris

    At the start of the season no one would have predicted that our defense would be carrying our team.

    • Kenny Sloth

      I dont think anyone would’ve predicted 10-4 and tied w the Rams at this point

      • OP_Chillin

        Yes, but that has a lot to do with the Niners going to crap. Most predictions I saw had them repeating as div champs, Hawks right there, Cards up-and-coming, with the Rams as 3rd/4th.

        • Kenny Sloth

          Yeah been a strange season. I wouldnt have believed you if you said we’d be up 13-6 in the 3rd against LAR

  208. 12th chuck

    leave it to the hawks to drop a turd in dec. with a game at winning div. etc how did our o het so pathetic the plus side, hope we can muster a drive next half. cant believe they squandered the good field position all game

  209. Kenny Sloth

    Half time shower lets goooo Hawks

  210. Mike

    Let geno cook? 😂

    • BobbyK


    • BobbyK

      Sometimes I wonder if it’s possible it could be worse.

      I still love Wilson but he’s not Mahomes, Rodgers, etc. He says he wants to be the best of all-time, but there’s no way that’s possible (anymore). Especially playing for a team that had no draft picks in the next few years either.

  211. cha

    Field Marshal Hague Offense

  212. Sea Mode

    So, what should the 2nd half game plan be on offense? Feed Carson + quick throws?

    • Sea Mode

      I think we need to set up Russ with some easy reads. The “drop back and see if anyone is open” is not working for him in his current state.

    • OP_Chillin

      In my view they need to say eff it and run as many times in a row as they can coming out. I don’t care if it’s run, run, run punt for 3 yards. Passing game is nonexistent.

    • Rob Staton

      Feed David Moore


      • Kenny Sloth

        They heard you, Robb!!

  213. dragonhawk

    Russ’s goose is cooked

  214. Mick

    On the positive side, our D is matching the one of the Rams, which is top.

  215. Chris

    Seems like defenses have figured out how to defend lockett

    • Tony

      I think Ds figired out RW and our gameplan. And the result is lockett and dk having more struggles cuz RW is hesitating and missing reads/throws.

  216. Matt

    RW can’t even microwave a hot pocket right now.

  217. Chris

    I think they need to run the ball and feed dk the ball. Maybe try some more rollouts.

  218. Chris

    Schotty has had how many weeks to adjust to how defenses are playing us. Why hasn’t there been any improvements?

    • Rob Staton

      Possibly because Wilson is playing like utter crap

  219. Chris

    Definitely could be the answer.

  220. Matt

    The next turnover will determine the game.

    Both of these teams are doing nothing in the postseason.

  221. Rob Staton

    Feed David Moore, see.


  222. OP_Chillin


  223. Blitzy the Clown

    Moore has his one circus catch per game

  224. Matt

    RW with his first career sack.

  225. Henry Taylor

    Finally, establish D Moore, just like we’ve been asking!

  226. Kenny Sloth

    Ha! You were right SeaMode

  227. Rob Staton

    “wHo CoUlD tHeY sIgN tHo iN FA?”

    Leonard Floyd.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Well, it’s like you’ve said before, they put all their chips in the Clowney basket early and hung around too long

    • uptop

      I was a VERY big Leonard Floyd fan, that length wouldve been amazing at LEO.

  228. cha

    Much, much better. Get out of the pocket and make a play. Get those RW legs and improv going.

  229. Denver Hawker

    Love the play to Moore, hate the decision.

    I was going to ask why we suck at 3rd down, we have weapons and good o-line. Wilson missing high percentage conversions for going for big plays.

  230. Rob Staton

    Thank god for that

  231. Blitzy the Clown

    Savvy play by Wilson there to score

  232. Mick

    Yeah Russ come on, it was getting painful to watch…

  233. Kenny Sloth

    Finally a TD in this boring ass game

    • Sea Mode


  234. Chris

    Much needed!

  235. Big Mike

    Now please no let down defense

  236. Dinosaw

    Come on defence don’t relax keep the foot on goffs throat.

  237. Sea Mode

    Huh, I grabbed a glass of whisky and things immediately got better. That’s definitive evidence: whisky makes everything better.

    • Big Mike


    • Kenny Sloth

      I’ll join you, salud!!

    • Rob Staton

      Get drinking

      • Kenny Sloth

        😂😂😂 🍸

  238. Troy

    That was the first drive in a long time where Russ looked like himself.

  239. Lewis

    They start running bootleg plays or otherwise getting him on the run and suddenly Russ looks like a different quarterback. Hmmm…

  240. Tony

    Its like RW needs these big chunk plays. He seems to get in a groove when he hits a couple deep passes. Everything tends to click. But when you remove all deep shots. He panics and cant sustain drives. You get these long lulls in game. We need to fix the intermediate chain moving offense.

  241. Dinosaw

    FFS Suprise fucking suprise…

  242. Blitzy the Clown

    Ugly whiff by Griffin and Wagner

  243. Rohan Raman

    Who is God?

    A) A bearded man in the sky

    B) A force beyond comprehension

    C) Leonard Floyd against the Seahawks

  244. Mike

    The defense is going to give up a quick td aren’t they? Lol

    • Big Mike

      Of course they are how totally seahawks of them

    • Trevor

      Yes they are

    • Kenny Sloth


      • Kenny Sloth


        • Mike

          Glad I was wrong. You have a lot more optimism in the hawks than I do 😂

          • Kenny Sloth

            It’s a ok squad

  245. Dinosaw

    Come on ffs

  246. Big Mike

    Good job Joe the running back’s name is Henderson not Adams

  247. Blitzy the Clown

    I can’t believe Adams even caught Henderson from behind like that. It’s not like Henderson is slow.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Ran a 4.49 at the combine. Adams is excellent in pursuit

  248. Bmseattle

    ..the not meant to twist like that.😬

  249. Blitzy the Clown

    Fantastic play by Brooks

  250. Chris

    Jordyn brooks is getting better every week!

  251. Kenny Sloth


  252. Rob Staton

    What is Pete doing????

    There was no clear recovery.

    A total waste of a challenge and timeout.

    • Hawks4life

      He’s always been the worst at challenging

      • Kenny Sloth

        I love his challenges tbh

    • Bmseattle

      Even his body language said said, “what the hell…I’ll give it a shot.”
      He just doesnt value the timeout, clearly.
      What a stupid thing to do in what will certainly be a close game at the end.

  253. Blitzy the Clown

    Not a good challenge. They aren’t going to award Seahawks the ball here.

  254. Mick

    Jordyn had 2 great plays. What is Pete challenging there?

  255. OP_Chillin

    Is there a secret camera angle available to PC? Because there’s no way in hell he’s winning that challenge otherwise.

    • Rob Staton

      It’s one of the worst challenges of the season.

      Clear fumble but NO clear recovery

  256. cha

    Boy I don’t know about this challenge. Gives the Rams a chance to regroup and get some momentum back after 3 straight stuffs.

  257. Big Mike

    How’s there ever been a worse had coach when it comes to challenges in the NFL?

    • Big Mike


    • uptop

      every fanbase says that, I don’t think pete is bad with challenges, although this was a bad one

  258. Rokas

    No matter what happens on 4th down, I am kind of proud of this defense today.

  259. downtownjewelrybryan

    the defense had the momentum

  260. Sea Mode

    1,2,3, drink

  261. Dinosaw

    Just giving mcvay more time to dial up a play.

  262. Denver Hawker

    Would Pete have called timeout there on 4th down to get a look at the play call? If so, why not challenge?

    • Kenny Sloth


  263. Tony

    I think this is more pete wanting a timeout and just using a challenge for it.

    • Rob Staton

      That is very generous

      • OP_Chillin

        They used it to implement the super elite run defense package that stuffed that play 😉

  264. cha

    Wow! Take that momentum defense!

  265. Chris

    There’s brooks again!

  266. Blitzy the Clown

    Excellent stop! This defense is stepping up at the right time

  267. TomLPDX


    • TomLPDX


  268. Mick

    So proud of the defense!

  269. Big Mike

    99 yd drive time

  270. Sea Mode

    This defense, man!

  271. Trevor

    Monster stop. If this doesn’t help give the defense some momentum nothing will.

  272. James Kupihea

    Why does everything great, ride on the back of something stupid with this team. Either way, great stop.

  273. Sea Mode

    Can you imagine how loud the 12s would be on that play!

  274. Kenny Sloth

    Who else fired up

    • Rob Staton


      • Kenny Sloth

        It’s late over there, I dont blame you ☺

        • Sea Mode

          Oh, believe me. I can get fired up late too. That’s not the reason.

          • Kenny Sloth

            🛌 🛌 🛌

  275. Troy

    Brooks living up to his draft position, good stuff

    • Rob Staton

      KJ made that play on the GL to be fair

    • Matt

      Still don’t live the pick but he’s clearly the best 1st rounder in a long time.

      • Tony

        At this point, I’ll take any good 1st rd pick from hawks.

  276. Blitzy the Clown

    Brilliant! 🙄🤦🏻‍♂️

  277. Rob Staton

    Three throws on your own goal line?

    24 throws
    14 runs

    Of course.

    • BigSmooth13

      The hurry up on 3rd down too. Why?!

  278. OP_Chillin

    They double-team Sebastian-Joseph-Day and leave AD singled on Simmons

  279. Rob Staton

    That sky cam angle is TERRIBLE

    No idea what happened on that kick return

    • Trevor

      The NFL coverage this year has been about as good as the quality of play on the field. Brutal.

  280. Bmseattle

    How in the world did we not get that recovery?!

  281. Kenny Sloth


    • James Kupihea

      I applaud your persistence /shrug.

      • Kenny Sloth

        Applaud Cody Barton on his way to Canton!!!!!!!!!! /jk

  282. Big Mike

    A recovery would’ve been gargantuan

  283. Tony

    Another missed opportunity. If only this team could limit mistakes and capitalize on these huge plays!

  284. Sea Mode

    Cody Barton special teams god

    • Rokas


    • Blitzy the Clown

      Last game I asked if fans would be ok if the best he ever got was Heath Farwell.

  285. Troy

    Russell Wilson is the #1 problem with this football team. He’s playing SCARED. Celebrity life = no toughness or swagger

    • Trevor

      I agree Russ is playing lien crap but I don’t think anyone can question his toughness. Come on man that guys has never even missed a practice despite the pounding he has taken over the years.

      • Tony

        Agreed. Dude is nails tough. Hes earned his stripes. He just needs to be better on reads and game management.

        • Troy

          I’ve seen “tough” Russ. There is no way at all I would describe his current play as tough. He’s playing scared and soft.

    • cha

      Schottenheimer is the problem today. No awareness. No humility.

  286. Trevor

    Will there be fans at playoff games?

    • Rob Staton

      Probably not in Seattle

  287. Blitzy the Clown

    Oh for crying out loud close them out on 3rd down

    • Big Mike

      Yes my frustration with giving up 3rd n long is through the roof

  288. Rob Staton

    10 runs for Carson in a game you are leading

    24 passes vs 12 runs (not including scrambles)

    Mostly this is down to their awful third down numbers

    But this isn’t Pete ball, at least not an effective version

    • Tony

      Establishing the run and carson should have been number
      1 priority.

    • Kenny Sloth

      They’rere getting killed on 3rd downs on both sides of the ball. Why wont they lean on their run game?

    • Blitzy the Clown

      It’s baffling. Especially when you have Carson, Hyde and Penny in the lineup

      • Tony

        Havent even seen penny

    • cha

      The playcalls on their own 1 were garbage.

      • Rob Staton

        Incredible. Just run it there!

        • Rokas

          And risk a safety against a stacked box? Didn’t hate that they went pass heavy there. On 3rd and 3 they could run, sure.

      • Big Mike


  289. Mick

    Awesome Alton

  290. Blitzy the Clown

    I’m telling ya, Robinson is ok. Fairly savvy pass rusher as a raw rookie. Just needs more snaps.

  291. Kenny Sloth

    Has KJ been our best defender this year??

    • Trevor


  292. Chris


  293. James Kupihea

    KJ Continues to play like he’s five years younger.

  294. Mick

    Now a long drive and TD

    • Big Mike


  295. Kenny Sloth

    Jared Goff ur thumb is nasty yo

  296. Bmseattle

    Yes…as long as we avoid any 3rd down plays.

  297. Trevor

    Seems like all of Robinsons 4 sacks on the year have been at key times. As a 5th round rookie he seems like a quality long term rotational DE.

    • Sea Mode

      Props to him, but that was a total coverage sack. I want to see a pass rusher just flat out beat their man 1v1 sometime this season.

  298. Chris

    Its time to play pete ball!

  299. Henry Taylor

    Brooks, Lewis, Alton – we made at least 3 good picks this year.

    • Trevor

      I would add Swain to that list.

  300. Sea Mode

    For all the crap we’ve given him (and well-deserved), respect to Goff there for toughing it out with the thumb injury. Ouch.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Jared Tuff

  301. Mitesh Shah

    Can we run the read option every play this drive

  302. Rob Staton

    Still not running the ball

    • Kenny Sloth

      This defense man

    • Mick

      I’d try with Hyde

  303. Trevor

    The offensive design and play selection has been god awful for 5-6 weeks now. More slants to Metcalf and north / south running with Carson would be a nice start.

  304. Blitzy the Clown

    Nice to see Penny get a carry

  305. Kenny Sloth

    Nice hesi by Penny in the hole to make that happen

  306. Rob Staton

    That is unacceptable by DK Metcalf

    • Kenny Sloth

      Him jogging back when we were trying to spike it at the end of the half

    • Mike

      Agree, it was a very questionable flag though. I like the Carson/penny 2 back set

      • Rob Staton

        Just laziness! Get set!!!

    • Tony

      His lackadaisical play at times is an issue. He needs to clean up his play and mature a little. Still, his ceiling is incredible.

      • Rob Staton


        A lot of potential but still an awful lot of improvement to be had (including his hands).

  307. Blitzy the Clown

    Poor refereeing. Blow that play dead before someone gets hurt unnecessarily and that phantom illegal motion call.

  308. Kenny Sloth

    Carson at FB? Ron Rivera is that you????

  309. cha

    Man what a ticky tack call on DK.

    • Big Mike

      Absolutely cheated by the officials

      • Rob Staton

        No way. That’s on DK.

    • Sea Mode

      Sucks, but that’s a lack of focus by DK there. I think he’s frustrated again Ramsey shutting him down.

    • Lewis

      Not really. He was rocking back and forth. Call it an illegal shift or a false start. Doesn’t matter which

      • Rob Staton

        It’s a clear penalty. D.K. isn’t concentrating.

        • Lewis

          Preaching to the choir

  310. James Kupihea


  311. Trevor

    Those tricky tack bullshit penalties are what drives me nuts about the Seahawks and NFL in general. How did that have any impact what so ever on the play.

    • Rob Staton

      It’s not ticky tacky. He wasn’t set. He jogged over there and wasn’t ready. Jalen Ramsey spotted it right away and pointed at him. Awful from DK and cost them a drive.

  312. Chris

    Michael Dickson might be our best weapon!

  313. Blitzy the Clown

    Absent a turnover, the team that can put together one more sustained scoring drive will win this.

  314. Rokas

    Is there any team in the league that looks dumber playing against the Rams than us? I bet there is not.

  315. downtownjewelrybryan

    wow…just get the first down penny.

  316. Kenny Sloth

    What a punt

  317. Mick

    Dickson again with a great punt. But it’s worrying we can’t get a couple of actions together.

  318. Bmseattle

    Calls like that leave me thinking very dark thoughts.

  319. TheOtherJordan

    DK has cost his team a TD by celebrating before he crossed the goal line and now a first down at a critical moment in the game where his team can clinch his division. Absolutely inexcusable lazy, mental lapses.

    • Matt

      His demeanor has been terrible lately. Can’t help but think the dysfunction on offense is getting to him. *Not making excuses.

  320. cha

    If I see one of our DBs get wiped out by a WR block again…

  321. Rob Staton

    Shaquill Griffin.


    • Rob Staton

      Goff playing without a thumb and we’re giving up plays like that

    • Mick

      Griffin needs to go.

  322. Sea Mode

    Their QB is hurt. Don’t let them run it on us!

  323. cha

    Poona Ford making the tackle 20 yards downfield.

  324. Blitzy the Clown

    Inexcusable blown coverage/tackle by Griffin

  325. Big Mike

    You simply do not make a call like that that is so ticky tack in a game this big

  326. Chris

    Shaq griffin is such a soft player.

    • Mike

      He seems like a nice dude and is athletic, he just doesn’t have that corner attitude.

  327. Robbie

    Shaq has been getting eaten up all day

    • OP_Chillin

      Yup. He has games where he completely shuts down poor competition and then has poor games against good opponents. Not good enough for CB1 money.

  328. Rob Staton

    Jalen Ramsey telling Goff what to do there isn’t really a site I’d want to see if I was Sean McVay.

    • Trevor

      Not a good look.

  329. Vanhawksfan

    The defensive backfield is holding up the best i’ve seen all season.

  330. Blitzy the Clown

    Nice play by Reed and at a great time. But I’ve seen enough of Rasheem Green. Pure looks like Tarzan/plays like Jane. What a disappointing prospect he turned out to be.

  331. TomLPDX

    I HATE Troy Aikman…

    • TheOtherJordan


  332. Chris

    Credit to our defense! They came to play today!

  333. cha


  334. Blitzy the Clown

    Now that was a nifty play action pass to Lockett. More of that please.

  335. Trevor

    North South runs with Carson instead of East West. Finally!

  336. Blitzy the Clown

    And to think they could’ve been running Carson up the middle all game.

    • James Kupihea

      Its almost like the run and play action, opens up the back end…weird.

  337. Kenny Sloth

    Stuff it down they throats

  338. Big Mike

    Now that’s the russ we need to see

  339. Blitzy the Clown

    I’m liking this drive

  340. TomLPDX

    Yay Tyler!!!

  341. Trevor

    Since DJ Reed became a starter the secondary is so much better.

  342. Kenny Sloth

    DK drawing the double team

  343. cha

    Sure, just keep running out of bounds guys.

  344. Sea Mode

    Come on, don’t let this drive stall here!

  345. Troy

    If you woulda told me after the first 8 games our defense would be the savior of our season, I would have thought you were mad. 2020 folks

  346. Blitzy the Clown

    Rams defense so good at not losing contain. They cover the LOS in transition really well.

    DK forcing the first down!

  347. Matt

    We are gonna pull this off but I still can’t help but see a team that will have a quick playoff appearance and be done.

    • Rokas

      If we had the same offense as in the 1st half of the season, and this defense, I’d say we could be just fine.

  348. Sea Mode

    Let’s go! DK!

    • Kenny Sloth

      DK Truckcalf

  349. OP_Chillin

    Offense starts rolling and clock managment issues rear their disfigured head. SMH

  350. Rob Staton

    This has been a quality drive so far

    • Kenny Sloth

      True finally mixing it up

    • Hojo

      woah, a rare positive comment

  351. Mick

    Get the TD here and game over.

  352. Blitzy the Clown

    I hope DK didn’t get a stinger on that 3rd down conversion. He came down awkward on his head.

  353. Sea Mode

    It’s Lockett time IMO.

  354. Trevor

    A first down here would be enormous.

  355. downtownjewelrybryan

    are we playing for 3???

    • downtownjewelrybryan

      NO WE’RE NOT!!!!

  356. Blitzy the Clown

    Play action to the TE

    • Blitzy the Clown


  357. cha

    Hollister! Gorgeous touch by RW!

    • Mick

      Yeah that’s it, awesome Jacob! Scared my dog…

    • Blitzy the Clown

      Proper. Like it should be.

  358. TomLPDX


    • TomLPDX

      Jason is still spot on!

  359. Rokas

    Eat S***, Rams

  360. Trevor

    Amazing how much better the offense looks when they run the ball.

  361. James Kupihea

    Okay, all the past doesn’t matter. We need Russ to be great for 2:56.

    • James Kupihea

      *fist pump*

  362. Sea Mode

    Let’s gooooooooooo!!!!!

  363. Robbie

    Let’s GOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

  364. Chris

    Now thats big boy football!!!!!

  365. Troy


  366. Sea Mode

    Was that basically the same play we missed the TD on earlier due to the defensive holding?

  367. Trevor

    This win has to be a confidence booster against the Rams if nothing else,

  368. Kenny Sloth

    Can I get fired up again?

    That route by Hollister

    • Kenny Sloth

      Easy win I said all along 😁

    • Trevor

      Division champs has to get us all fired up a little I hope.

      • Kenny Sloth

        You’d think but……

      That was Schotty. Perfect playcall of Post-Wheel against man

  369. Tony

    Pleasantly surprised that we are 2 mins from division title!

  370. Gohawks5151

    Dunlap the closer incoming…

  371. BobbyK

    Come on, defense. End this. Click, clock, tick!

  372. James Kupihea

    Close it out defense.

  373. Chris

    Just make them earn it.

  374. Tony

    D finish this game out!

  375. Kenny Sloth

    What a statement win by this Defense

    • Matt

      I’m still hesitant…Goff is terrible. Great performance…but we haven’t seen it against a good offense, yet.

  376. cha


    What a goof by Reynolds

    • Matt

      I think he gave himself up.

    • Kenny Sloth

      Im crying!!!!!!!

  377. Trevor

    Who would have imagined after the Janikowski / Ryan fiasco year that the Hawks would have the best kicking duo in the league.

  378. Blitzy the Clown


  379. Mick

    Rams can’t be real with that!

  380. Blitzy the Clown


  381. Bmseattle

    Is the clock supposed to stop on that offensive penalty?

  382. Trevor

    That Rams offense really missed Cam Akers today.

  383. Henry Taylor

    No fun league!

  384. Kenny Sloth

    No Fun League

  385. downtownjewelrybryan

    where you at dunlap…need a finishing sack

  386. Blitzy the Clown

    Man this Seahawks defense just showing up

  387. Trevor

    I have been critical of this defense all year but they played a quality game today. Hopefully a launching pad into the playoffs. The additions of DJ Reed and Dunlap have been huge.

  388. Big W

    Seahawks looking like Super Bowl contenders.

  389. TomLPDX

    Wow, what a maddening, frustrating, fun game (once I knew we were going to win! 😉 )

  390. Mick

    It would be the biggest win of the year.

  391. Big Mike

    One more play

  392. Tony

    So when dk drops ball before entering endzone against dallas is giving himself up then right?! Cuz intention is he gave up on play? I get the reynolds call, but thats a bonehead play that is not the intent of the rule. He wasnt giving him self up to avoid a hit.

  393. TomLPDX

    Our D! Great game defense!

  394. uptop

    pass rush is what puts games away, hopefully they keep swarming

  395. Chris

    Ken norton deserves a ton of credit for turning this defense around.

    • Sea Mode

      I want to see us go toe to toe with a good offense without a backup/crippled QB and a 3rd string RB before I say that.

  396. Sea Mode

    Good to see Jarran Reed back out there. Must have just got the wind knocked out of him.

    • Blitzy the Clown

      And out there making the play

  397. Blitzy the Clown

    Finally a convincing win over the Rams. By gar it’s been a while

  398. downtownjewelrybryan

    no fans but the most important 12 was there today…PGA

    we are NFC CHAMPIONS once again!

    • Tony

      DIVISION CHAMPS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

      HELL YEAH!

      • downtownjewelrybryan

        oops…yes, DIVISION CHAMPS

  399. TomLPDX

    Now it is all love from Toy and Joe for Seattle. Assholes!

    • Rob Staton

      I don’t get the hate.

      I’ve always found the dislike of the pair weird.

      Two quality broadcasters IMO

  400. Big Mike

    That last drive was a championship drive

    • Sea Mode

      Yessir it was!

  401. cha


    • Hojo


    • Sea Mode

      Yeah, baby!

      It wasn’t pretty, but we got it done.

  402. Sea Mode

    Why aren’t we just kneeling?

  403. Blitzy the Clown

    NFC West Division Champions!!!

    GO HAWKS!!

  404. Mick

    That was the Christmas present for the 12s. Great win, hope more to come in playoffs.

  405. Gohawks5151

    The division champs are back!!!!

  406. AlaskaHawk

    This is a real confidence builder. Seahawks throw off their Rams jinx and win the NFC West. Go Hawks!

  407. Denver Hawker

    Defense winning these games lately, gotta credit Dunlap and DJ Reed for the improvements. Seem to allow the other guys to play their roles, and less confusion in the secondary. Adams is good, but his place in the D still just seems awkward.

    • Sea Mode

      Well, not blitzing him on 75% of the snaps is a good start for sure!

    • pdway

      I love having him out there – yes, he cost too much, and yes, he may not be worth the contract we are going to have to pay to retain him – I accept all of that – – but in the moment, for the rest of this season, I’m just enjoying seeing a guy flying around like he does. Love the way he bangs into the bitz pick-ups, love how he’s always slapping every teammates hand, love his speed in pursuit.

  408. charlietheunicorn

    Sexy defense, loved the energy and the heart they showed during 3rd and 4th quarter.

  409. James Kupihea

    BTW, officially…GO TITANS!

  410. Denver Hawker

    Chiefs 14-1, ho hum.

    • James Kupihea

      Must be nice when the other teams can’t even turn out a .500 record lol.

      • Denver Hawker

        They have road wins against the Saints, Bills, Ravens, and Bucs.

  411. Chris

    I like how we stayed aggressive on the rams last drive.

  412. PDWAY

    A lot to like about that 2nd half man . . .

    What a fantastic all-around game by our defense, Adams all over the field, his energy lifts the energy of the entire unit. And Reed is an absolute fantastic find. having him and Shaq (didn’t have a great game, but he ain’t tre flowers) makes us so much more stable. Really proud of how the defense played all game.

    And maybe, just maybe, Russ shook off some of that bad mojo that has had all of us scratching our heads the past 5 weeks, that key 3rd down conversion to Hyde, the floater to Lockett, the final TD to Hollister — all those plays looked like the Russell we know.

    Props to the Rams defense, they’re excellent, nothing easy in the pass or run game against them. And to Goff too – just played right through that ugly thumb dislocation.

    All-in, our defense hung right in there with the #1 defense in football, and our offense was just a bit better – it was a well-earned win. Division champs again and it feels good!

    • TomLPDX

      No shout out for KJ?

      • pdway

        totally fair! he was great today too.
