  1. Most disgusting officiating I've seen in NFL history (yes far worse than 2006 Super Bowl). It's clear the NFL has told refs (and is likely paying them) to hugely promote and hand out wins to their new LA markets. I've never seen anything like this before.
  2. Seattle Seahawks (3-3) @ Detroit Lions (3-3)

    KJ Wright and Dickson will be huge for us, but I don't think we'll have the luxury of applying the pressure on Stafford given the Lions' healthy line is far superior to the Raiders' beat up line. That said, Detroit's run defense is atrocious and they have some of the worst linebackers in the NFL. This could be an offensive shootout, but I think Seattle will CONSTANTLY be pushing the run with Carson/Davis/Penny. That will be the best way to slow down Stafford and crew. This is really a must win for either team to have a shot at the playoffs. If Seattle can go 4-3 though, I think we're in the running given 5 of our last 7 games are home and we still have to play the terrible 49ers twice. Tough part is we still have the Chargers, Chiefs, Rams, and Packers still ahead... some ridiculous offensive power there. That will challenge the hell out of our secondary.
  3. This should be huge for us. Dickson was supposed to provide a great boost to our rushing attack which has been solid so far this season and Wright hands down helps us against tight ends and slower slot receivers. Seahawks have gotten criticism all year on our secondary given Thomas/Sherman are gone, but McDouglald and Thompson are posting top 10 safety marks according to PFF. Griffin has been no slouch either. I feel this upcoming Lions game is a must win but a game we can totally take on. The Lions OL will be far better than the battered Raiders, but I like our run game matchup against Detroit. Detroit's LBers are absolute trash tier and their DL isn't that great either. Seattle should be able to run on days against Detroit and Wilson should have PLENTY of time.
  4. Week 4: TNF - Vikings @ Rams

    He was very questionable for this game and was not 100% playing with a hammy injury. Usually Cook dominates out of the backfield in the receiving game but couldn't even muster that. IMO it was stupid of the Vikes to start him sub par against a great Rams front 4, but the Vikes were clearly desperate for a win here...
  5. Seattle Seahawks (0-1) @ Chicago Bears (0-1) - Week 2

    Wilson definitely played poorly this game... even the TD throw to Lockett required a ridiculous catch. That said, WTF were our receivers doing this entire game outside of Marshall? Lockett? We just paid this guy $10M per and THAT'S what we get? I get he made a TD in basically garbage time but c'mon.... And why the hell was Penny running so much? Was Carson injured? 6 carries by Carson? I had to check out halfway through the game so maybe I missed something when I tuned in later, but why was Penny getting so many carries? He's fat, clearly out of shape, and Carson is a WAY better means of productivity.
  6. MNF: Seahawks @ Bears

    Michael Dickson ROY so far.... lights out punter.
  7. Doug Baldwin Out With Partial MCL Tear

    That sucks. Really would've been good to have him for Chicago, which we REALLY need to win. I think we can get a couple victories out of Dallas and Arizona before the Rams kill Wilson.
  8. Seattle Seahawks (0-1) @ Chicago Bears (0-1) - Week 2

    Put 7 in the box constantly since the Bears still only have much of a running game and Seattle got gashed by Denver. Get Dissly on Mack's side since he's a good blocker and Ifedi will need all the help he can get. Carson needs to be the featured back here. I get Penny is your 1st rounder but Carson dominated in preseason, looked good against Denver (who has a good D-Line). Bring Penny in to dual back with Carson, but Carson needs to be on the field way more. Seattle's only strength on offense at the moment (outside of Wilson - who if Seattle did not have would be a 1/2-15/14 team) is their RB situation. Use more double RB situations with Penny/Carson/Prosise and McKissick. Again, Carson should be on the field majority, but the other 3 guys are on par or better than what is marching out there at WR until Baldwin is back.
  9. Seattle Seahawks @ Denver Broncos - Week 1

    Guess that's why we drafted Hundley. I guess after Wilson is killed next Monday, and then Hundley is a career iron lung, we can put Prosise at QB and just run the wildcat 24/7.
  10. Seattle Seahawks @ Denver Broncos - Week 1

    How in the World of holy football hell is Ifedi still starting at right tackle? Put him at right guard or just outright cut him.
  11. CW21's 2018 NFL Draft Review (Browns Up)

    Nice write up - appreciate the effort that went into it. That said, this is honestly the first draft since 2010 (which let's face it, was LOADED and Seattle had two top 15 picks) that I've liked in the Carroll/Schneider regime. I disagree with the Penny pick being a shock given Seattle got a call right after that selection about trading Penny (almost positive that was the Pats). Penny led all RBs with yards after first contact and broken tackles... even better than Barkley, so I can't fault Seattle taking Penny with their first, especially after acquiring a 3rd. IMO they got the a top 3 best RB in the class, the best punter (Jon Ryan will be a TOP 3 highest paid punter the next 2 years, and Seattle doesn't have the cap room while Ryan is above average but nowhere near top 5) prospect in the last 5+ years, and the best blocking TE which will sorely help the blocking game. All 3 of those guys will be immediate impact players and Greene will likely get starting time. Griffin was also a WTF steal and outside of his ridiculous edge speed he'll also 100% motivate and keep his brother Shaquill happy who played great last year for Seattle and appears to be one of the better up and coming corners. End of day, it absolutely blows my f'ing mind that Seattle picked up the runningback with the best yards after first contact/broken tackles, the best blocking TE, and an underrated OT later rounds, not to mention signing one of the best pass blocking TEs in the NFL (Ed Dickson) and hiring a new OL coach (who has a great track record) and everyone is criticizing Seattle for 'not addressing the OLINE and run game to help Wilson'. Like... wtf? Seattle consistently got low draft grades from most analysts because of the "OMG IMPROVE THE LINE!" thing. Uh... they've been trying to improve the line. They've spent quite a high # of picks (including trading one for Brown) to improve it... because of Cable or something, it hasn't come together. They also finally moved on from Jimmy "I can't block for **** and have no idea why Seattle is asking me to" Graham which was probably one of the dumbest trades/acquisitions in the last 10 years...
  12. Seahawks Sign WR Brandon Marshall

    Really don't have a problem with this signing. It's whatever for me. Wilson and Baldwin are veteran enough that they can reel in Marshall's crybaby attitude. If this was a signing 2 years ago I'd hate it.
  13. Earl Thomas Situation (Leg Fracture)

    Whatever. Earl Thomas made it clear he didn't want to play for Seattle multiple times last season as well as this offseason. Trade him? Sure... however, the market was not there for safeties this year. We had a ton of decent ranked safeties as free agents and the draft class wasn't half bad either. Seattle would've gotten a 3rd MAX for someone like Thomas, and that's simply not worth what he can bring to the field this year. Sure some might think, "But he might be mailing it in this year." It's a contract year, and despite Thomas' bull**** about retiring, he wants money. He'll perform to a high level this year, give Seattle a playoff shot, and generate a huge learning curve to one of the youngest secondaries in the league (outside of Max/Chanc). Seattle wanted a 1st or GTFO.. when Seattle's FO realized they were nowhere NEAR that in the FA market, they rescinded. Done and done... football economics boys.
  14. 2018 NFL Draft

    I've generally hated most Seattle drafts under the Carroll regime. 2010 I loved (Thomas/Okung/Tate, etc.) but that was easy to love since it was such a talented class, we had 2 1st rounders, and were drafting high.... I admittedly was NOT high on Wilson (I thought he'd bust) but I did love the Wagner pick. I'll never forget Kiper bashing Seattle after trading down in round 2 and 'losing their guy' in Kendricks and 'having to settle' for Wagner, yet earlier that evening Kiper ranked Wagner ahead of Kendricks... that's kind of when I stopped listening to Kiper all together. Anyway, all said I loved this draft. I've come around to Penny but I was SUPER high on all our mid round picks, and I LOVE the Michael Dickson pick since Ryan is overpaid for what he brings.
  15. With the 27th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft...

    This pick drove me nuts. I really have no clue what Seattle is trying to do at this point. Penny goes down like a sack of potatoes when a stiff breeze hits him and we had guys like Michel/Guice who are much better graded backs still available. Someone posted above that he is a solid receiving back and can let Carson be the feature back while he provides a suitable backup? We just took a RB in the 1st round... that RB should be 100% a feature back if that's the case. The F are you talking about with a viable option on 3rd down?
