    351: Time for Pete Carroll to take more risks

    Play Episode Listen Later Oct 22, 2021 70:58

    In the Seahawks first loss with Geno Smith as the starter, Pete Carroll showed us early on in the game against the Steelers that he was not ready to take more risks. But now that the Seahawks are 2-4 on the season, and in desperate need to win back-to-back games heading into the bye week, more risk is necessary to keep the team alive in the playoff hunt. In this week's show we talk about the second-half comeback and the defensive play that allowed Geno one more shot at a win. Are the Seahawks going to get good Jameis or bad Jameis in this week's game against the Saints? Either way, the focus will be on stopping Alvin Kamara. He was also the guy to stop back in 2019 and still he combined for 150+ rushing and receiving yards and two touchdowns. With injuries to Alex Collins and Chris Carson, they may have to rely on a combination of Rashaad Penny, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer. In the second half of the show we reassess the outlook on the Arizona Cardinals. We also offer yet another reminder of the pick'em league rules as we attempt an iron fist policy on the Seahawks picks. Amazon, a Bengals.com writer, and a "bonus" creates a trio of Do Better this week before we load on on a quintet of Better at Life awardees.   2021 Podcast Pick'em League Post 'Go Hawks' in the comments for the latest

    The Seahawks organization and fans have entered uncharted territory in the Russell Wilson era. For the first time, it appears as though we'll be watching another quarterback start under center  since 2012. What does that mean for the team? Drama. It's likely to create a ton of drama unless certain conditions are met over the course of the next few games. We talk about what those conditions are, and why seeing Geno Smith play well over the next few games could have a big impact on the franchise moving forward. How about Geno though? He comes in and moves the team down the field on a 98-yard touchdown drive. He even had the opportunity late in the game to engineer a game-winning drive. Normally those situations come with a lot of added stress. Did anyone feel stressed in that moment? If not, does that mean the rest of this season could have a very different feeling than previous years? Looking ahead to the schedule, what are the expectations for this team considering the level of play we've seen from other teams in the conference. We look ahead to the schedule and see what win-loss markers the team will need to hit to make it into the playoffs. In the second half of the show, we talk about Russell Wilson continued optimism and discuss the other teams in the division. Cole Beasley and at least four teams in the pick'em need to Do Better. Better at life honors go to Lamar Jackson and our Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. 2021 Podcast Pick'em League Post 'Go Hawks' in the comments for the latest

    Another win against the San Francisco 49ers and another demonstration of why Niners fans hate Russell Wilson. In his 100th regular season win of his career, we got to watch another highlight moment from Russ. Plus it came after the 49ers defense was dominating the Seattle offense through most of the first half. It wasn't a perfect game, but with the vintage Wilson, a big hit from Bellore, and some solid runs from Alex Collins - it gives the Seahawks a nice win heading into another rivalry game against the catfish-ing Rams. Los Angeles is coming off of a loss to the undefeated Arizona Cardinals (which feels weird to type, but we look ahead to why it's not going to last long). Adam breaks down what the Rams struggled with the most from their matchup with the Cardinals. The Rams also struggle against the Seahawks when Seattle wears their neon green uniforms. Everything could be lining up well for the team to bounce back from the losses to the Titans and Vikings. In the second half of the show, we take a look around the league at some of the other games from this past week. With the short week, we'll catch up on the Week 4 winners in pick'em next episode. Look for the next tiny piece of Seahawks stuff coming up as well.

    Any time there are two losses in a row, it brings out a lot of questions about who is to blame. Especially on our show where we try and look at ourselves first to see what we may be doing wrong in our own lives on gameday. But there is particular area to direct the blame this week. We take a look back at the Vikings game, discuss the signing of Richard Sherman with Tampa and speculate on what might happen if the season continues in this direction. Fortunately, the 49ers are next up for the Seahawks and they're facing a quarterback they don't have to be as concerned about when it comes to getting beat deep. If the defense changes it's approach from the last two weeks, it could be a good week for getting their mindset straightened out. But Russell Wilson also has a formidable front seven that he's facing this week, so it's not going to be easy. In the second half of the show, Michael in San Diego comes in with some in depth talk about his 'breakfast' situation the past couple weeks. Fortunately that is something that should be resolved this week. Reporters talking about the Rams and Tom Brady's extremely minor health issue need to do better.

    In the movie Any Given Sunday, Al Pacino's character talks to the team about how there are inches everywhere in the game of football. In Sunday's game against the Titans, there were several moments that had they gone an inch in the other direction, it could have made a different in the outcome. But there were also things within their control that players on the team struggled to keep in control and it led to some penalties that also cost the team some of those valuable inches. In this show, we look at all of the different areas that deserve some blame. Whether it's coaching, how certain players performed in the most critical moments or areas that have gone overlooked relative to other aspects of the game. The Seahawks now go on the road to take on a Vikings team that has played in back-to-back games they should have won. Instead, they come into their first home game of the season winless. Can Russell Wilson continue his winning streak against a former collegiate rival? In the second half of the show we discuss the performances of the teams in the NFC West this past weekend and which teams impressed or underperformed. We learn why the Acid Queen is no longer going to be attending professional sporting events and we discuss a Seattle-area business that is helping to fight homelessness in the area through a local partnership.

    In the first game of the regular season, the Seahawks new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron removed any concerns about his ability to call plays and showed that he call plays around the coverages that the team struggled with at the end of last season. One passing play led Steve Raible to call out the title of this week's episode. Though that may have been the area we had the biggest questions, it was the Seahawks defense that may have had a more impressive performance overall. At the very least it surpassed expectations heading into Week 1. Watching the rival Arizona Cardinals take on the Tennessee Titans in the first game of their season helped to alleviate any fears about the offensive potency of the pairing Julio Jones with A.J. Brown. But this game will likely go differently now that the Titans realize that allowing a team's best pass rusher to regularly go unblocked at the quarterback is a terrible strategy. If the Teennessee offensive line struggled at home, how will they do in front of all the screaming fans at Lumen Field?

    The first game of the 2021 NFL season kicks off for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. They face off against quarterback Carson Wentz (who the Seahawks have a perfect record against). Since 2014, opponents have a perfect record against the Colts in their Week 1 game. Plus the Seahawks have been nearly perfect when playing in the 10am PT time slot in recent years. Can all those things add up to a win for Seattle? Of course there are actual matchups to talk about and Jonathan Taylor may be the most challenging one. Poona Ford, Al Woods, Bobby Wagner and Jordyn Brooks are going to need to have a good day and plugging up the defensive interior. Otherwise it will give Wentz plenty of 3rd and short opportunities to convert. Just how far ahead of the Seahawks are the Colts in Pete Prisco's power rankings? We discuss it in the latest installment of Prisco's World. Later on, in Do Better, we find out where one of the ESPN simulations suggests the Seahawks will finish in terms of their record.

    We are celebrating the official end of the offseason! Next week we'll be previewing the first Seahawks game of the 2021 season when they take on the Colts. However, this week, we are running down the Seahawks roster after Pete Carroll and John Schneider made their cuts down to 53. There were some interesting choices on offense as Seattle kept three quarterbacks, but only decided to hold onto four wide receivers. We also look at the practice squad and that's where so many of the receivers ended up. On defense, there is a lot of optimism around the defensive line, but the team could still use some veteran help on the interior. The Seahawks recognize that they still need help at cornerback because they continued to add to the group this week after the cuts. Sidney Jones was brought it to compete at corner. Could he end up taking over for Tre Flowers who earned his starting spot to kick off the season? In the second half of the show, we talk about the 49ers quarterback situation and contrast it with what's going on in New England. We also follow up on a conversation from the previous show and learn from a listener how Abe Lincoln used to like to pick fights. If you're outside the Seattle area and struggle to find ways to watch the games, several listeners chime in with their different strategies for watching the Seahawks.

    Through the first two games of the 2021 preseason, the Seattle Seahawks haven't done much to impress fans. They've lost in back to back games and most recently a 30-3 loss to the Denver Broncos. As we fight through the sleepless nights telling ourselves that preseason doesn't matter with the reminder that we haven't seen starters playing, what are some of the things we've learned from these first two games? Does it give us any clue to how the season might play out? In our annual season expectations show, we take what we've learned through the first two games and flash back to the end of last season to lay out what we think should become of our 2021 Seahawks. We go through all of the biggest question marks regarding this year's team and point out the reasons for optimism at other areas. Can Russell Wilson bounce back from maybe the worst span of games during the second half of last season? And Pete Carroll revealed something about Shane Waldron this last week that offers the offense a different dynamic than it has had compared to any of the previous coordinators. In the second half of the show we talk about how the 49ers appear to be leaning away from Trey Lance starting to kick off the season. The Rams have traded multiple picks for a player who has seen about as much success on the field as Rashaad Penny. Do better call outs go to a Bay Area newspaper for correlating two very unrelated health issues and to a local middle school for being a bit too wordy.

    After trading two first round picks for Jamal Adams last year, the Seahawks have now signed the star safety to a record-setting contract that is set to keep him with the team through 2025. Seattle also frees up nearly $5 million in cap space by making the deal and hopefully it offers them flexibility to pay a couple other veteran players who would like to stay with the team beyond this season. We talk about how news from earlier in the week was an indication that both sides were ready to close the deal. Seahawks backup players saw their first preseason action in Las Vegas on Saturday. Geno Smith took a monster hit which means we could see more of Alex McGough coming up against the Broncos. We talk about some of the challenges the team had against the Raiders and discuss whether the new preseason format will change how the Seahawks get their starting players prepared for the regular season. Finally, before the break, we talk a bit more about the overrated Arizona Cardinals to close out the Know Your Rival series. PFF recently ranked the NFL's top defensive lines and the Seahawks were nearly at the very bottom. Is there an argument to be made about the accuracy of the assessment?

    Recapping the first week of training camp is simple. Several players look like they're in the best shape of their career, other players are hyped to high levels of expectations, and some players want better contracts. Jamal Adams is one of those players who wants a deal before the season. We talk about why we think the middle of the month is the right time to see a deal get done, and why Duane Brown should also get an extension if he's truly looking for one and not just resting. The Know Your Rival series continues with the San Francisco 49ers and a discussion around how hyped fans are that Trey Lance hit one really good throw in training camp. But this isn't a team that's built to attack by air, it's a team that should feature a strong run game. The defensive line is one of the best in the division, but what about the back seven outside of Fred Warner? There's also the question of just how much the loss of their former defensive coordinator will have on the team. In the second half of the show we talk about the average beer consumption by fan base and the famous Sean/Shawn's that we missed from the previous show.

    Following the NFL Draft this year, the Seahawks were considered big winners by picking up some of the top-ranked undrafted free agents. One of those UDFAs, Tamorrion Terry, was indicted on felony murder chargers this week for a shooting back in 2018. Seattle was quick to cut him and it happened to be hours before Josh Gordon announced he was applying for reinstatement. Maybe the most important news is that the Seahawks are finally going to have the opportunity to wear throwback uniforms. Now we just have to wait for the official announcement. Which teams are the most overrated going into the 2021 NFL season? The settled definition of overrated is that you are better off lighting $100 on fire rather than placing a bet for that team to win the Super Bowl.

    Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll both had some newsworthy quotes coming out of the week of minicamp, but it was a quote from Tyler Lockett that should have Seahawks fans excited around the potential of the new offense in 2021. Lockett spoke directly to issues the team had throughout the final weeks of last season and the importance of addressing those issues this year. Russell Wilson also talked about the new offense, but the majority of questions for him surrounded the offseason drama. At least he had the opportunity to give us the "real reality" of how he saw things. Jamal Adams is due for a new contract and was excused from minicamp. Does Jamal deserve to be paid as the highest safety or at a contract similar to some of the best outside linebackers? Duane Brown has also expressed the desire for a new contract and we discuss why that could be really good news for Wilson and the Seahawks. One player not looking for a new contract is punter Michael Dickson who is locked up for the next five years with the team and his now paid among the top punters in the NFL. In the second half of the show we talk about the Seahawks defense and which issues are critical to the team's success beyond this year. Russ mentioned how odd it was to see Carlos Dunlap wearing number 8. Does it create a similar clash that has been an issue in the past with wide receivers who pick numbers in the teens?

    Last week the word on the street was the Atlanta Falcons wanted a first round pick to trade future Hall of Fame wide receiver Julio Jones. Now, after an appearance on Undisputed, it seems much more likely that a trade will happen. We take a listen to the phone call that definitely wasn't an impromptu tv moment and talk about the Seahawks as an odds on favorite to trade for Jones. Considering what Julio said during the call, Seattle does make some sense in terms of his landing spot. While Julio would offer the potential to impact the offense, there is a bigger area of need and a player who may be available to fill that need. Ahkello Witherspoon is a name of a player currently on the team who could fill a critical need, but does his latest press conference inspire confidence that he could be that guy? If you look at the latest NFL.com starting roster projection for Seattle, Witherspoon seems to be a favorite to be a starter. But will it last? In the second half of the show we discuss Russell Wilson's support for Naomi Osaka skipping out on a post match press conference. Maybe Osaka should take a page from the playbook of a former Seahawks player or maybe we could just be okay with allowing athletes to decide if they want to speak to the media or not after an event.

    John Schneider and Pete Carroll went into this year's 2021 NFL Draft with only three draft picks after using their other picks to acquire known talent. Jamal Adams and Carlos Dunlap were acquired in 2020 and are both under contract to remain with the team through 2021. Gabe Jackson was picked up in a trade this offseason with the Las Vegas Raiders to add to the offensive line after the departure of Mike Iupati. However, the Seahawks have never picked fewer than five players in a draft in the entire history of the franchise. But the Seahawks GM only made two trades on draft day and still finished with only three picks. First off the board for Seattle was WR D'Wayne Eskridge of Western Michigan. The guys talk about the thought process that may have gone into taking a skill player here rather than improving the offensive line, particularly with some of the top centers still on the board. Outside cornerback depth was a concern coming into this last week, and it's well known the type of corner Seattle likes to draft, so why did the Seahawks take Oklahoma cornerback Tre Brown? Pete Carroll may be adapting to what we're seeing in the NFC West and in the NFL. In the sixth round, the Seahawks traded up for offensive tackle Stone Forsythe. Despite some of his perceived weaknesses, taking him that late in the draft was a "no-brainer," but it also highlighted an area where Seattle tended not to budge on what they looked for in the past. Plus, we look at some of the top undrafted free agents. In the second half of the show, we talk about the 49ers selection of Tre Lance with the third overall pick and the decision to trade two future first round picks to make that deal (when maybe they didn't need to). Aaron Rodgers managed to steal the spotlight ahead of the first round, which was almost certainly 100% intentional after what the Packers did to him last year.

    Back with part two of our discussion as Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog previews some of the defensive players who could be on Seattle's radar. This show kicks off with a look at what might be the team's biggest need overall. If the Seahawks can add a cornerback who matches the caliber or improves upon Shaquill Griffin's rookie season, that would help fans feel a lot better about the defense going into 2021. If John Schneider and Pete Carroll break form and address cornerback in the second round, something they've never done, then Rob likes Benjamin St-Juste of Minnesota. He also likes Ambry Thomas out of Michigan. Ifeatu Melifonwu, however, is someone who has been routinely projected to Seattle, but the disappointment of his brother's career has rubbed off negatively when it comes to the Syracuse prospect. Considering that there are always special teams needs to fill, safety and linebacker are two areas that shouldn't be completely overlooked. Defensive tackle may not be a need for Seattle with the Al Woods signing, but if teams are overlooking Texas A&M DT Bobby Brown then Rob would be happy to see him land with the Seahawks. We also discuss how defensive end shouldn't be overlooked. Sure they have depth, but if they have someone who can make an impact, they should take a chance even with a limited number of picks.

    331: Seattle Seahawks 2021 Draft Preview (Part 1)

    Play Episode Listen Later Apr 20, 2021 93:11

    We're closing in on the 2021 NFL Draft, coming up April 29th, and barring any major moves between now and then the Seahawks won't be making their first draft pick until the 30th. Joining the show this week to preview where the Seahawks could go on offense in the draft is Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog. The episode kicks off with a look back at how the Seahawks ended up with only three picks ahead of the draft and the circumstances surrounding the decision to make a big trade for Jamal Adams ahead of the season. That was a move that they wanted to help make an immediate impact on defense, but what is the most immediate need now on offense? Rob makes the case for why the biggest need may not be a player who starts on offense in 2021, but considering the depth at tackle it may be the best time to address a replacement for Brandon Shell for Duane Brown next season. There's two areas of the draft that don’t provide much strength and that is at running back and tight end. However, we take a look at some of the players who fit in terms of Seahawks measurements, because they'll be guys who are likely on the team's radar. Closing out the show, we look at a relatively deep receiver class. The problem is there isn't a player who Rob thinks is a clear and obvious fit for what they've liked historically. Maybe Shane Waldron will have some thoughts on a guy he feels could be unlocked in the offense he's bringing to the team this year. Support the show Get in the Flock!

    It only took about 10 weeks for the discussion about the Seahawks potentially moving on from Russell Wilson to go full circle. It started with Brandon Marshall in late January saying that Wilson was "beyond frustrated" with Pete Carroll. This week he has reported that the relationship between the two have never been better! Marshall said it came down to a meeting between the two that turned everything around. Tyler Lockett is set to be with the Seahawks for a lot time, signing a 4-year contract extension through 2025. If he plays out his contract in Seattle, which is another team-friendly deal, we talk about where he'll end up on the list of all-time wide receivers in franchise history. On the defensive side of the ball, Quinton Dunbar won't be returning, but that leaves the door open for a former Seahawks cornerback to make a triumphant return. We take a look around the NFC West in the second half of the show as Adam is not buying the hype surrounding Mac Jones going to the 49ers with the third overall pick. The flock comes in with some optimism surrounding the NFL draft despite the Seahawks having only three picks and some reasoning behind the four teams that were listed as possible trade destinations for Wilson. A former landlord and Michael Strahan both earn Do Better callouts this week and Better at Life honors go to the makers of the latest off-road vehicle and to the Seahawks salary cap wizards.

    329: The offseason plan for the Seahawks is coming into focus

    Play Episode Listen Later Mar 29, 2021 110:47

    After two weeks of free agency, the plan for the Seahawks offseason is becoming clear. The large contract they traded for on the offensive line by acquiring Gabe Jackson is essentially swapped out with the departure of Jarran Reed and his contract on the defensive line. The return of Carlos Dunlap may be the most important move and the reduction in his salary allows for the addition of defensive end Kerry Hyder and the return of Al Woods to the interior. It's also appears they are sacrificing their full participation in the draft and instead trading for proven veteran talent. The San Francisco 49ers made a huge move this past week by trading two future first round picks to move up to the third pick overall. We get into the history of NFL trades into the top three picks to show there is risk involved. However, for a team that has seen success with an average quarterback, the potential reward is easily worth the risk in their case. We discuss the move in context with the other NFC West teams who have been working to upgrade their rosters this offseason. The fact that the 49ers are giving up the 12th overall pick and two more first round picks just to move up nine spots in the draft demonstrates how ridiculous the Chicago Bears reported trade package for Russell Wilson was. But it hasn't stopped people like former general manager Mike Tannenbaum from suggesting that the Seahawks could still move on from Wilson for (once again) Sam Darnold. In the second half of the show, one of our members of the Flock is considering adjusting his relationship status if it can somehow help the Seahawks get back to championship form.  Adam goes after the owners for nearing completion for their push to a 17-game schedule and Brandan goes after Mike Florio for his rooting interest surrounding the Seahawks quarterback. Better at Life honors go to a new season and to the Miami Dolphins for giving Adam the perfect football gift. Support the show Get in the Flock!

    It's once again that time of year where we hope that the Seahawks will go after some big name targets and free agency and come away somewhat disappointed. Coming into Wednesday, Seattle had signed another cornerback castoff from the San Francisco 49ers and signed Poona Ford to stay in Seattle for two more years. Neither the offensive line and defensive line were addressed. Not until the second half of the recording of this latest show. After talking about missed opportunities in free agency, we look back on some of the worst takes regarding the drama surrounding Russell Wilson. We have multiple theories to choose from on why Russ was not named in the letter to season ticket holders and Adam likely nails the easiest explanation. We also diagnose how Sam Darnold entered the quarterback conversation this past week after Pete Carroll's quotes from December were used to support two different trade proposals. In the second half of the show, we get news that the Seahawks have acquired an offensive lineman from the Las Vegas Raiders. He wasn't the one discussed in the first half, but we take a look at some of the highlights of the move and talk about what it could mean for Damien Lewis. The Seahawks are also signing a veteran tight end, but it highlights a key area the Seahawks aren't taking advantage of when it comes to contracts to try and squeeze multiple moves into this offseason. Mike Silver lands in the Do Better segment for what was probably the worst take about the Russell Wilson situation, and Adam takes issue with characterizing Deshaun Watson's issues with the Houston franchise as anything remotely similar to Russ in Seattle. Better at life honors go to the 1984 Seahawks defense for some overdue recognition and to the "Acid Queen" as Adam rebounds from last week's call out to do better. Support the show Get in the Flock!

    This week show begins with a two-minute rundown of all the biggest stories that Adam has taken note of from the past week. Notably, Justin Britt signing with the Texans. Then we get into the clip behind one of the biggest stories of the week that was reported incorrectly . . . that the Seahawks are "shopping" Russell Wilson. When, after clarification, they were actually returning phone calls. Dan Patrick, the host behind the interview that kicked off the offseason of drama, joined 950 KJR in Seattle and had a couple of statements that offer a national perspective of the situation with the Seahawks. If people in the national sports media have the idea that Pete Carroll isn't "all in" on Russell Wilson, then maybe the Seahawks coach has a problem when it comes to public messaging about his quarterback. In news that came after recording the show, Carlos Dunlap was released by the Seahawks on Monday, but our discussion about relating his contract to J.J. Watt may actually provide some context to his departure. If Dunlap wasn't willing to restructure to a deal similar to Watt, Seattle may see that as the ceiling for the market for finding a free agents at that spot or if Dunlap were to return after testing the market. In the second half of the episode, we respond to some comments from the Flock that came in regarding the current situation in Seattle.

    It's a single-topic show for this episode of the podcast. Because, on Thursday morning, Michael-Shawn Dugar released an article on The Athletic that detailed the timeline from this year and some of the details from previous years that provide additional context to some of Russell Wilson's recent comments. The point of the article is that, from Wilson's perspective, it's more than just getting offensive linemen - it's about winning a certain way. We hit on some of the main points from the story and, while it still seems incredibly unlikely a trade would happen, the more important thing is that Pete Carroll and Russ have to communicate more clearly with each other, rather than doing it through the media.

    324: Russell Wilson is focused on the right priority (and is not getting traded)

    Play Episode Listen Later Feb 11, 2021 91:31

    Wasting no time with offseason drama from the Seahawks this offseason, news came out on the day of the Super Bowl that teams were making calls to Seattle about their interest in Russell Wilson. Though the news expressly came along with the disclaimer that the Seahawks, of course, weren't interested. Yet, by Wednesday, there were sports betting sites laying odds as to which team Wilson would be going to next. So where did this come from? We pull the quotes from former Seahawks receiver Brandon Marshall and Russell Wilson's quotes from the Dan Patrick Show that seemed to generate most of this discussion. Interestingly enough, nowhere in those discussions were any kind of hints that Wilson is demanding to be traded or suggesting that he's unhappy with the team. Instead, he's clearly focused on what Seattle needs to do this offseason to improve - acquiring talent to put together an offensive line that can protect their star quarterback. Considering what we all witnessed in Super Bowl 55, that should be the goal for every team in the NFL. Because we saw the league MVP from 2018 and the league MVP from 2020 both struggle against the Tampa Bay Bucs defensive front. Russell Wilson is focused on the right priority and the Seahawks front office should have that same focus as well! We also discuss the Matt Stafford trade to the Los Angeles Rams and what it means for the division. Adam brings a historical perspective at quality quarterbacks who have made mid- or late-career moves. Plus, we take another shot at nicknaming the new offensive coordinator and the results from an in-depth data analysis on some important career tendencies.

    The Seattle Seahawks have announced their new offensive coordinator and Shane Waldron will come up from Los Angeles to join the Seattle Seahawks. The worst part about this move is that it forces us to say some things that sound like there are some positive components of the Rams offense. But the best part about is may be that it may signal a compliment to Russell Wilson's game that could help the team improve. However, it does come with some risk. Ahead of this episode, we reached out to our members of the Flock and the Ring of Honor group of Facebook to get some questions from the group on the things that you want to talk about. Before we get there, we talk a bit about the NFC Championship game and the call by the refs and the fourth down decision and how those moments impacted the game. In our mailbag segment, we talk about the Seahawks free agents the team could be most likely to keep some players we'd be okay with moving on from, and where the cap money should be focused on in the offseason when it comes to free agency. With NFC West rivals looking to upgrade at quarterback, we talk about the worst possible outcome in the division this offseason. Plus, we rank some of the sexiest deep balls of Russell Wilson's career. One email even inspires our new slogan we'd like to see pitched to the Seahawks new offensive coordinator.

    As the 2020 season closes out for the Seahawks, we recap the news from this past week. The biggest news is that the Seahawks are moving on from Brian Schottenheimer as the team's offensive coordinator. John Schneider apparently isn't going to the Detroit Lions after all. Instead, he signs with the Seahawks through 2027. However, Seattle did lose one name from their front office to the Carolina Panthers. Were there any clues from Pete Carroll's press conference to close out the season that suggests that Schottenheimer was on the way out? There were certainly clues about the direction the Seahawks coach wants to head in. As much as there are concerns about it shifting too heavily toward the run, Pete was very clear about it not being a monumental shift. He wants to run teams out of playing two-deep safeties, he wants to improve on third down conversions, and he wants to continue to be explosive in the passing game. Russell Wilson also gave his final press conference while vacationing from Mexico. It was a different tone from the Seahawks quarterback than we've heard in previous seasons, and he wanted to make sure we all know how critical it is that he's a part of the process with hiring the new offensive coordinator and being "on the same page." But who should the new offensive coordinator be? We work through all the names that have been projected and ultimately settle on one name we haven't heard many Seahawks fans talking about. Adam has some thoughts on Seahawks players who were talking about how difficult one particular aspect of the season was to overcome. Brandan goes after Texans fans for coming up with a terrible idea for a cause they chose to march about near the stadium in Houston. Better at life honors go to a man for peacefully residing in an airport for months and to a couple of teams for making the choice to hire defensive coordinators for their head coaching vacancies.

    Was this week's loss to the Rams in the playoffs the most disappointing and frustrating performance of the Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson era, or was it the most predictable? Either way it was the first home loss in the playoffs since the 2004 playoffs, which coincidentally was also against the Rams franchise. Russell Wilson, with two healthy thumbs, was outplayed by a quarterback who looked like he could feel his heartbeat in his throwing thumb. Pete Carroll passed over opportunities to go for it on fourth down early in the game, but then when his hand was forced the offense narrowly missed a delay of game only to get a false start. Penalties cost the Seahawks the game, turnovers cost the team the game, and Wilson unable to respond from questions about his play from the previous eight weeks cost the Seahawks the game. Despite the Rams defense playing extremely well, we discuss a variety of ways the offense could have attacked their rival and either stayed true to the slogan or by making other adjustments. We'll look at Pete Carroll's post-game comments in the next episode, but this week we discuss how Carroll's philosophy may be worth questioning after multiple seasons of early playoff exits. Could the offensive coordinator be on the hot seat? We talk about possible coaching moves as well as how we'll likely see more questions this offseason surrounding Wilson than any other season.  Those questions are already beginning to be thrown out there on Twitter as highlighted in Do Better and there are deeper questions about whether humans are alone in the universe that we may hear more about this summer.

    The regular season has come to a close for the Seahawks following a 26-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers down in Glendale, Arizona. At the midpoint of the season, we were extremely concerned about a Seattle defense that was giving up passing yards at an historic rate. Not only were they worst in the NFL in 2020, they were on pace to be the worst in NFL history. If not for the 3-yard touchdown pass by the 49ers in garbage time, the Seahawks would have finished ahead of the Detroit Lions for the 30th spot. However, there has also been another turnaround. The offense went from scoring 30+ points a game through the first eight games to only having one game above 30 in the second half. But improving the defense through the acquisition of Carlos Dunlap and the 2nd play of Jamal Adams and D.J. Reed offering a big improvement over the first half of the season. It's possible to play both good defense and score 30 points or more. So what's going on? We discuss what changed from the first half to the second half and talk about which quarterback we'll see the Rams play on Saturday. In the second half of the show, we talk about the preferred route through the playoffs. We discuss the news of John Schneider getting interest from the Detroit Lions to become their general manager.

    The Seattle Seahawks finally had a convincing victory over a Sean McVay coached Los Angeles Rams team. Not only that, but they did it on the back of a defensive unit that had questions surrounding it early this season. Is it time to give Ken Norton some credit for the turnaround? The 20-9 win over the Rams earned Seattle their first NFC West title since 2016, but was it done in a way to improve Adam's mood from the previous week? After all, the structure of the game wasn't much different. We look at some of the third downs throughout the game and it was one area where Russell Wilson struggled early on in the game. Next up is a San Francisco 49ers franchise that Seattle has dominated throughout the Russell Wilson era. Kyle Shannahan has managed two wins against this Seahawks team (the same number that Jim Harbaugh had). Injuries continue to plague the 49ers, but George Kittle will be in the game and C.J. Beathard has done well to avoid throwing any interceptions. But Kittle will be his only big name target with both Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk out for this Sunday's game. Even with injuries, Seattle should expect a physical game, particularly from the 49ers defense. In the second half of the show, we talk about the departure of Damon 'Snacks' Harrison and the return of Luke Willson. We also discuss a number of playoff scenarios for Seattle and why there is the potential for a big difference between having the 2nd and 3rd seed in the playoffs.  D.K.O. earned the top spot in the pick'em league this week, and Jeremy comes in with the answer regarding career rushing leaders for the Seahawks.

    The Seattle Seahawks earned a playoff spot and the Rams were beaten by a previously winless team on the same weekend. Was a 20-15 victory to lock a playoff berth a better feeling than seeing a rival lose in that way? Up 20-3 against the Football Team, it looked like there was potential for a second straight dominant win. Instead, it came down to a final drive by Washington that could have given them a late lead over Seattle. Where did things start to turn? We take a look at the four offensive drives and the way the team played defensively in the fourth quarter. This Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams looks different than the matchup earlier in the season. Shaquille Griffin has returned from injury, the pass rush has shown consistency since the previous matchup, and Alex Collins won't be finishing the game as the leading rusher. But the main thing we want to see is a revenge game from DK Metcalf. A response from him would prove that the previous game against the Rams defense was a fluke, and would help to put him ahead of Steve Largent in the record books. We also discuss the thing the Jets did successfully against the Rams defense and how it's a strategy Russell Wilson can't be expected to take advantage of. In the second half of the show we talk about some of the latest Seahawks transactions. Tight end Greg Olsen could return from injury this week. Despite Adam's earlier frustrations with the team, he struggles to place other teams ahead of Seattle in the power rankings.

Sandwiched between that game and the Super Bowl 48 victory is the latest win over the New York Jets. Should the Seahawks get credit for beating a team they were expected to easily defeat? We recognize some of the biggest performances on defense as well as Jamal Adams record-setting sack. Russell Wilson looked much better against the Jets than he had in previous weeks, but now the Seahawks offensive line is facing one of it's biggest tests of the season with the defensive line of the Washington Football Team. Second overall pick Chase Young is coming off a game where he recovered a fumble for a touchdown. He's one of a few pass rushers Russ will have to worry about this week. One piece of news to watch will be if Alex Smith will be able to bounce back from his injured calf this week in time for Sunday. With a win against Washington, the Seahawks can clinch a playoff berth before facing two of their division rivals in the final two weeks. We discuss why it's critical for the Seahawks to, at the very least, earn a division title this season. Jeremy calls in with a new trivia question and breaks down some of the top career rushing leaders from the wide receiver position. We get into the "greatest game of the NFL season" in Adam's Do Better as Brandan talks about the Patrick Mahomes 'futurists.'Better at life honors go to a successful space mission by Japan and to Kelly Victoria for bringing a magical world to life in the eyes of a 4-year-old girl and in return had an incredibly rewarding experience of her own after coming across a fairy garden. p>Register for the 2020 Podcast Pick'em League Pick'em League Home at CBS Sports Post 'Go Hawks' in the comments for the latest

    316: Great. Seahawks fans have to worry about this Jets game now

    After watching what was the worst Russell Wilson performance we've seen this season, this show's listeners apparently want to throw us, the hosts of the podcast, under the bus. It's hard to blame them, because a lot about this last game didn't make a lot of sense, so we've got too point fingers at something. While it's difficult to point to the exact issue with Russ, we give it our best attempt from what we've seen looking back at the game. Coming up on Sunday, Seahawks fans now have to worry about and wonder if Seattle can get things back together well enough to get a win over the Jets and avoid being swept by the state of New York. Sam Darnold is coming off the best game of his season where he only turned the ball over three times, the defense played well enough for about 15 seconds short of a full 60 minutes to win, and the Jets are likely going to be without their best running back and wide receiver. So what are we worried about again? In the second half of the show, we take a look around the division and also talk about some of the some of the latest team news regarding Josh Gordon and Rashaad Penny. We discuss the aftermath of the unboxing of the B.J. Finney pants that came in the mail last week. (Note: we are still taking some suggestions on what the fate of those should be.) Congratulations go out to Hyde and Seek and What A Hasselbeck for their pick'em performances the last two weeks.

    The Seattle Seahawks offense looked flat through the fourth quarter and even at other times of the game, but thankfully they had DK Metcalf who appears to have some sort of vendetta against the Eagles. The story of Jim Schwartz coming up to him ahead of the game and comparing him to Calvin Johnson was well documented, but Metcalf's postgame comments about how Philly could have been his home also seems to strike a nerve for the sophomore receiver. Even though we expected to see improvements from the defense in this game, it demonstrated the team's ability to look how it should when the pass rush, linebackers and corners are able to complement one another. We also discuss the perspective some fans and some in the media are still downplaying the seasons that Metcalf and Jamal Adams are having for the Seahawks this year. Looking ahead to the game against the Giants, we talk about a couple of their players to watch on defense. Daniel Jones looks like an injury suffered against the Bengals will keep him out of the lineup this week. Jones has been able to make up for some of the deficiencies in the Giants offensive line, so with Colt McCoy now in the lineup it may be a challenge to get the ball to a more talented receiving corps than the Seahawks saw last week. In the second half of the show we talk about the San Francisco 49ers move to Arizona for their next couple "home" games. Talk a little bit about the Broncos and how they looked without a quarterback against the Saints and how this week's win over the Eagles could come into play for playoff seeding.

    The Seattle Seahawks are now 7-3 and coming off a 28-21 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. For the second time this season, we watched a Seahawks defense shut out an opponent in the first quarter of a football game. It was their best defensive performance in terms of points allowed in the 2020 season. What did it take to help turn things around for the defense? By accounts from the team in press conferences this week, they simply held a meeting where players talked about what their jobs were in particular situations. The defense also got an assist from a Seahawks offense that held the ball for a majority of the game. It kept the Arizona Cardinals offense off the field. Carlos Hyde gave Seattle a dynamic on offense that we haven't seen in previous weeks. We also take a look at some of the moments that both kept the Cardinals in the game, and helped the Seahawks expand their lead late in the game. The Seahawks move into a four-game stretch of the season where anything other than going undefeated will be a huge disappointment. The next four teams on the schedule (Eagles, Giants, Jets, Football Team) have combined to win a total of two games outside of their own division. With that in mind, the Seahawks need to have some statement wins and rack up stats, especially if Russell Wilson is going to be back in the conversation for MVP. It's not just for personal awards, it's to get the team prepared for a Week 16 rematch with the Rams. In the second half of the show we take a look back at the previous five weeks and why 2-3 feels like a disappointing result despite some of the issues Seattle faced with injuries. We get into the pick'em winners from the past two weeks. In the 'Do Better' segment we talk about how North Korea may or may not be militarizing dolphins and what DeAndre Hopkins was crying about after a Cardinals loss to the Dolphins.

    It was an ugly game against the Rams that I'm sure most of us prefer not to think about too  much. Russell Wilson rarely has back-to-bad games where mistakes end up costing the Seahawks the football game and three in a row is unheard of. So this episode is dedicated to a full Hawkra cleansing of our flock ahead of the Thursday Night Football matchup with the Arizona Cardinals. Sure, it seems like the Cardinals are in a good place after winning in the final seconds against the Bills, and we get into all the reasons why it feels like things are going in the opposite direction for the Seahawks. Now we get back to neutral ahead of this game though. It's a shorter show this week as we will likely double up with shows on the 'mini-bye' after the game against the Cardinals.

    At the midpoint of the season, the Seahawks are 6-2, but they found another way to lose in frustrating fashion. According to Adam, this was even more frustrating than the loss to the Cardinals, because the team played whatever the opposite is of complementary football. Instead, each phase of the game contributed to something that made it more difficult for another phase. Whether it was giving up a big return on special teams, untimely turnovers, or making a terrible decision on defense when it mattered most, each phase found a way to contribute to the loss. But it's not just on the players, or on the coaches, there is blame to share throughout the organization for some of what we're seeing on the field. Fortunately, for a defense that seems to have most of their difficulty with mobile quarterbacks, there aren't many left on the schedule. Jared Goff is the next man up to face this Seahawks defense. Can the team make the necessary adjustments based on issues we've seen in the recent loss to the Bills and some of the previous games as well? Will an improved offensive line be able to slow down Aaron Donald? But maybe the most fun matchup will be seeing D.K. Metcalf going up against Jalen Ramsey. The last team to face the Los Angeles Rams was the Miami Dolphins. Not only did Miami win that game, but they also beat the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Sam Marcoux, of the podcast Welcome to Perfectville, joins the show to take a victory lap for their "perfect record" in the NFC West. Also in the second half of the show, we remembered to announce the latest winner of the Tiny Piece of Seahawks Stuff, but we forgot to bring the latest trivia question (even though Jeremy explained the origin of all the work that went into it).

    The Seahawks put together what was probably their most satisfying victory over the season, because they did it against their rival San Francisco 49ers. Of course Niners fans will complain about injuries, the turf, Russell Wilson being so good at football that it's somehow unfair, D.K. Metcalf having more abs than should be legally allowed, and Bobby Wagner keeping a secret stash of voodoo dolls he can deploy as he's running through their offensive line. We could go on. Seattle travels to Buffalo this weekend to take on Josh Allen and the Bills. If the Seahawks can put up 25 points, which according to stats off the top of Adam's head is roughly half of what our team usually scores with Russell Wilson against the Bills, then they'll join a small club of high scoring offenses through eight regular season games. On defense, we will likely see the addition of Carlos Dunlap and the return of Jamal Adams and Rasheem Green. In the second half of the show, we talk about Russell Wilson and the mentorship role that he's demonstrating this year. Who are the other NFC contenders for the top seed? Tampa Bay and Green Bay are looking like the only two serious challengers. In Do Better, we're talking about analysts who are suggesting that Wilson was inviting a helmet shot late in the game against the 49ers and a clothing store that dared to suggest love and unity among our fellow Americans this week.

    Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals showed one thing about this Seahawks defense. It's not an issue that can be fixed by a change in defensive coordinator. It's not an issue that can be fixed by the addition of Carlos Dunlap. It's going to take another shift in Pete Carroll's mindset about playing more aggressively in some key moments. Carroll already made the shift on offense, so it's possible this change can happen mid season. We discuss some of the reasons why the change is so important especially with the way the team is operating on offense. There were some positive takeaways from the game against the Cardinals to discuss. D.K. Metcalf had an incredible play, but Tyler Lockett caught 15 passes for 200 yards and there's barely been a peep about some of his incredible catches coming out of that game. We also look ahead to the matchup with the San Francisco 49ers and why this game is important to have a bounce back game in the division. Antonio Brown is going to the Bucs and Pro Football Talk suggested that it was some trick by the Seahawks to offer up fake interest in Brown to help make another team in the league interested. From there the discussion takes a turn to national reporters versus local beat reporters. Congratulations to Deep balls better than rainbows as the pick'em league winner for Week 7. In Do Better, we call out the inevitable shots that were fired Russell Wilson's direction regarding his MVP candidacy and a strange characterization of the Seahawks acquisition of Carlos Dunlap.

    The Seattle Seahawks are coming off of their bye week. This past week, two games in particular worked out very well for Seattle. The 49ers beat the Rams, which put some room between LA and the Seahawks in the NFC West standings. The Green Bay Packers also lost, which put Seattle at the top of the NFC. They now go on to face the Arizona Cardinals on a weekend that the final two undefeated AFC teams play. The matchup with the Cardinals was supposed to be a chance to see how Jordyn Brooks and Jamal Adams could offer the dynamic the Seahawks wanted to match up against the NFC West. That may have to wait, but Snacks Harrison and Mychal Kendricks could be on the field for the first time in 2020. The 5-0 start for the Seahawks means that Russell Wilson has now had a five-game win streak in six of his nine seasons in the NFL. Looking at his attempts per game, it has been a steady increase from the first streak in 2012 to the current streak in 2020. In the second half of the show, we talk about the decision to keep fans out of the stadium until late November. We also discuss the importance of making sure we are accountable to our superstitions, after too many Floridians trimmed their beards leading to the benching of Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    For the first time in franchise history, the Seattle Seahawks are undefeated through the first five games of the season. This week's show starts off with a fair amount of concern over the health of our fellow fans. Just how many more of these kind of endings can Pete Carroll expect us to endure? While the first half against the Vikings wasn't much to get excited about, the ability of the defense to hold Minnesota to only 13 points to start the game may have been the most important factor of that half. The Seahawks only needed five good minutes of offense in the second half to help get the team to their first 5-0 start. Looking at the offense, D.K. Metcalf not only had the game-winning touchdown reception, he added another touchdown along with a huge 40-yard catch on fourth down. It was an incredible game for Metcalf. We also highlight some of the biggest moments from Russell Wilson on the final drive of the game, and some of the other members of the Seahawks offense. Looking ahead to the next four games, Seattle has a stretch of three road games in four weeks, and their first run through their NFC West rivals coming up. We discuss the outlook for the team moving forward. In the second half of the show, we take a look back at two of DCH's biggest predictions that he was able to reverse jinx into existence.

    The Seattle Seahawks are 4-0 for the second time in franchise history. They've also scored 30+ points over four games for the second time in the Russell Wilson era and the third time in franchise history. The other two stretches were in 2015 and back in 1986. Joining the show to talk about the 31-23 victory over the Dolphins is Doug Chanselle-Hary, or DCH as he is often referred to on the show. Russell Wilson threw for 360 yards and two touchdowns, and despite continuing to be on pace to tie Peyton Manning's record for touchdown passes in a season, we gripe about some of the touchdown passes that were left out there on the field. Mixed reviews on the defense this week from the crew as there was only one punt on the day for Miami. However, they turned the ball over twice and they managed to hold Miami to field goals up until the point the Seahawks were up by two touchdowns late in the fourth quarter. Coming up this Sunday night is a matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have not won a game against Pete Carroll since he joined the Seahawks back in 2010. In fact, Carroll has only lost one game in his career as a head coach or defensive coordinator versus Minnesota. If the Seahawks are going to win this game, stopping Dalvin Cook will be a critical component. In fact, this team matches up very closely with what Seattle saw against Dallas in Week 3. In the second half of the show, we talk about the impacts of the virus on the league this past week and how it has the potential derail the season.

    The Seattle Seahawks are 3-0 for the first time since 2013. So why does it feel different three games into the season than it did back then? One difference is that Russell Wilson has now set himself apart from the league and has some of the best weapons on offense of his career. But the defense has given up more passing yards to opponents than any other team in history. The 2011 Patriots and Packers and the 2018 Chiefs were playoff teams that had similar issues in the secondary through the first three games and went on two win a lot of regular season games. We take a look at what that means historically for a team's Super Bowl chances. We also get into the highlights from the last game against the Cowboys, the players who stood out, and some of the strange moments from Sunday's game. Sam Marcoux of the Perfectville Podcast joins us to preview Sunday's matchup with the Miami Dolphins. While Ryan Fitzpatrick may not be quite at the level of quarterback's the Seahawks have faced in the first three weeks, he has some significant weapons at receiver and had no problem torching the Jacksonville Jaguars defense on Thursday Night Football.

    The final play of the game will define the latest matchup between the Seahawks and Patriots, as Seattle earned the 35-30 victory. However, listening to national programs, you'd think Cam Newton had the breakout performance of his professional career. Cam may deserve a mention, but Russell Wilson should get the credit as the best quarterback in the game with his five touchdown passes to five different receivers. The balance of the offense shifted back closer to what we've come to expect from Coach Pete Carroll, but we're continuing to see some new things, too. Wilson didn't shy away from the challenge of going up against the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year either. Because they went right at Stephon Gilmore, this game will be remembered as the one where we knew D.K. Metcalf is on his way to stardom. Looking ahead to the Dallas Cowboys matchup, the Seahawks are going to need to stop Ezekiel Elliot both on the ground and through their screen game. Can the line stop Zeke the same way they held up Newton on Sunday night? If they can't, then it will be on Russ to continue to put up points. He should be able to do it after seeing the Cowboys defensive line underachieve in back-to-back weeks. In the second half of the show, we look around the NFC West from this past week.

    Anyone questioning if Pete Carroll could drastically shift the dynamics of the offense and defense from last season to this season got their concerns answered in the Seahawks Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Their 38-25 victory featured an aggressiveness on offense rarely seen in previous years. No give up plays on 2nd and long, going for it all on fourth down while the Seahawks had the lead, and Russell Wilson looking as though he was in complete command of the offense. Defensively, Carroll used Jamal Adams to generate pressure in a way we haven't seen him use that position in the past. We saw nickel and dime defenses. With those exciting changes, there remain areas of significant concern. With the Seahawks leading by three scores and a relatively immobile quarterback in Matt Ryan, Seattle's defensive line still wasn't able to get into the backfield with any regularity. Late in the game we didn't see punishing runs by Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde to help put the game away. Atlanta had early success running the football and in the second half they completely abandoned the idea testing Seattle's defensive tackles. Against the Patriots, the Seahawks front seven will be tested defensively. New England ran the ball early against the Dolphins and then opened up a passing game in the second half that allowed them to move the ball very effectively against Miami. The Patriots strength on defense is in their secondary, but containing Russell Wilson has never been something New England has had much success with. Let's see if the trend of what we saw on offense against the Falcons continues in Week 2. In the second half of the show take a look down at the 2019 NFC Champions in the cellar of the NFC West. We discuss the new club that Russell Wilson belongs to and another player who will be joining that club in the near future.

    It was a big weekend for Seahawks news ahead of the Week 1 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. On Saturday, the team released its 53-man roster which highlighted the strengths and shortcomings we've been discussing a lot in the offseason. Now it's official-the defensive line has some big question marks. The next day, we learned that Jadeveon Clowney would not be returning to Seattle. Although reports showed that offers made to Clowney were valued at the range of the contract he ultimately signed, he is going back to the AFC to play in the division of his former team. To kick off the season, the Seahawks will take on the Atlanta Falcons. Matt Ryan was down with an injury last season and even though Seattle had a huge halftime lead, it ended up disappearing toward the fourth quarter. Are we going to see the Seahawks employ a similar strategy this season with their offense to try and go up big early against teams? Perhaps giving up more than 450 yards in the air to Matt Schaub last season was enough to emphasize the importance of improving depth in the secondary in the offseason. We close out the first half of the show talking about areas of the roster that could come back to bite the team by choosing to focus on depth and familiarity with the team rather than going after higher priced talent. In the second half of the show, we get a little pushback from one of our newest members of the flock on the pancakes versus waffles debate.

On offense, will the Seahawks "Let Russ Cook" or will Pete Carroll shift to a more conservative approach and adopt the "Hammer the Rock" philosophy? Without preseason games, we can only go off the clues we've been given by some of the transactions. We can also go off some of the clues through short video releases to see how the offensive line is shaping up, but we also have to consider the competition when hyping up our own players. The offseason hype is in full swing when it comes to players like Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf, Phillip Dorsett, and Travis "TD" Homer. The blame for the hype goes all the way to the top.
