Week 2 (9/2014) – Seahawks Lose

The word meltdown comes to mind, and not just because my brain insists on trying to make a bad joke about the weather in San Diego.  The defense got off to a bad start, then made the problem worse as the game wore on by trying to do too much,  and the Chargers capitalized with […]

Week 2 (9/14): Seahawks at Chargers

First, a few statistical tidbits: *For all the talk about the Seahawks’ new-look receiving corps with Harvin and Richardson, Darrell Bevell’s play calling still favors running over passing significantly more than the rest of the league.  For the 2013 season, the Hawks run-pass percentage (R-P%) was 52.31% to 47.69% in favor of the run, a […]

Week 1 (9/14): Packers at Seahawks

There’s a lot to love about the game tonight.  The NFL regular season is finally here — at last, the points matter! — the Seahawks will begin their very first season-long defense of a Super Bowl title, and did I mention that real football is finally back?  Because yay! The very worst reason I can […]

Preseason Week 4 (2014): Projecting the Final Roster

Now that the dress rehearsal for the first stringers is out of the way (preseason or no, 34-6 is ample reason for optimism), it’s time for the most important game of the preseason – for everyone else on the roster, at any rate.  Tonight, hundreds of jobs across the NFL will be won and lost […]

Seahawks Tickets For Home Opener Up For Third Year In A Row

The Seattle Seahawks have hit the big time. As the NFL’s defending Super Bowl champs, the Seahawks are consistently viewed as one of the league’s best teams – if not the best – and will enter the 2014 season as legit candidates to get back to the Super Bowl to defend their title. The 12th […]

Preseason Week 2: Position Battles Rage On

This week, Tom Cable sat down with reporters and talk show hosts and said guards JR Sweezy and James Carpenter have a chance to be the best guard tandem in the NFL. The comment took us all by surprise, especially since this offensive line has largely been regarded as the one weak spot on an otherwise […]

Broncos 21, Seahawks 16: Shaking off the Rust

The first preseason game of the year is never pretty. Last night at Denver was no exception. To paraphrase what Pete Carroll said in his post-game comments, some of these guys have only been with the team for two or three weeks. And some of those guys included de facto starters, such as Eric Winston […]

Preseason Week 1 – Seahawks at Broncos (8/7/14)

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen: Seahawks football is officially back!  There’s plenty of reasons to watch tonight, and none of them have to do with the opponent being the Broncos (I have a feeling the match-up is far more meaningful for Denver’s players & fans than it is for Seattle’s). The Preseason isn’t about winning […]

Offseason Update and Talking points

Today, the Seahawks are holding their rookie minicamp, and that means a lot of things.  For one, it means we have an actual offseason to look forward to this year.  Most years that wouldn’t be much of a reason for celebration, but after last season’s protracted lockout during the collective bargaining agreement negotiations I doubt […]

The Next Great Player Out Of Seattle

In 2013, Byron Maxwell stepped up on defense to fill in for the suspended Brandon Browner. Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, and Richard Sherman are just a few from 2012. In 2014, expect a breakout year from one of Seattle’s 4th round draft picks. Cassius Marsh is a player that comes into Seattle with tremendous talent. […]

Seahawks’ RB-by-Committee is a Win-Win Situation

In the past, fans have accused Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell of being too predictable, too bland. But if fans saw this week’s announcement coming, they might be forced to rethink those accusations. Speaking Wednesday night at the Seahawks’ Town Hall event, Bevell told the crowd of fans that the team would be switching to […]

With the 227th pick in the NFL Draft, the Seahawks select…

…FB Kiero Small from Arkansas.  Small is built like a fire hydrant (5’8″, 245 lbs) and distinguished himself as a punishing lead blocker for the Razorbacks.  This move sets the stage for a three-way camp battle for the starting fullback position between Small, Derek Coleman, and Spencer Ware. I think Coleman is still the favorite […]

With the 208th pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…FS Eric Pinkins from San Diego State.  Pinkins is this year’s winner of Carroll and Schneider’s annual draft-a-6′+-DB sweepstakes.  Not only is he 6’3″ and 220 lbs, making him one of the biggest defensive backs available in the draft this year, he also runs a 4.45 second forty and surprisingly athletic for his size. Pinkins […]

With the 199th pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…their second Conference-USA player in a row, OT Garrett Scott from Marshall.  Scott played tackle in college, but will likely move inside to guard in the pros.  He needs to bulk up a bit and struggles badly with run blocking (he isn’t going to win any strongman contests), but he fares well in pass protection, […]

With the 172nd pick in the 2014 Draft, the Seahawks select…

…DT Jimmy Staten from Middle Tennessee State.  He comes from a small program, so there are legitimate concerns about whether he can show up versus NFL-level competition, but on the plus side he appears to have the size and quickness to play both 3-tech DT and 5-tech DE. Clinton McDonald’s 3-tech DT spot on the […]
