  1. Seattle Seahawks (2-3) vs Oakland Raiders (1-4)

    14-17 million? Just going off current 4-3 End contracts.
  2. NFL Draft - Team Needs

    No Seahawk stuff so …. 1. Defensive Tackle Seattle wasn't really able to replace Bennett and Richardson. After years of being a top run defense, its been their achilleas heel thus far. Jarren Reed is a legit DT, but he needs some help. Stephens really isn't doing the job. Naz Jones and Poona Ford are more rotational players. Could use both a LOS controller or Interior rushers. So think 2 picks here. 2. Defensive End [Strong Side] Frank F'n Clark is a boss. But he needs some help [and FA soon]. Rasheem Green and Dion Jordan have been hurt all year. Quinton Jefferson, Brandon Jackson are just JAGs. 7th round pick Jacob Martin has made some plays thus far, but Seattle could really use another guy that can hold that edge, and push the pocket. 3. Wide Receiver Tyler Lockett has been living up to that extension. David Moore has been a playmaker [nice 7th round pick!] and Doug looks to be healthy. But Russell is about to be a 30 million dollar man. Jarron Brown is mostly a ST player now. And Brandon Marshall cant catch a cold. Getting another weapon for Russell would be great. 4. Tight End Will Dissly is a monster. But torn up his knee. Nick Vannett has been a pretty big disappointment and Ed Dickson has been a ghost. Last week [week 6] Seattle played in London with two practice squad guys and a tackle at TE. With their new philosophy on offense, they will be looking for a block first tight end with good athleticism. Others: KJ Wright Replacement : Mingo has been playing great, and Seattle only uses 2 LBs anyway. Not a huge need, but it would be nice to add another playmaker. Another Guard : Sweezy and Fluker have been killing it thus far. But both are FA. Ethan Pocic is waiting in the wings, but an another insurance piece would be nice. Another Tackle : Duane Brown and Ifedi have been playing really well as of late. Jamarco Jones got hurt in training camp, and George Fant is more of an extra lineman type. If Ifedi or Brown flame out in the 2nd half this could be bumped up. Some notes for non-Seahawk fans. So as of week 7, Seattles offensive line has actually been one of the best [Since week 3]. Now who knows if this trend will continue, but as of NOW there is no need at offensive line. If they regress or someone bottoms out, move up the need. Seattle has about 7 guys they are comfortable starting, with Jamarco Jones waiting in the wing [injury]. As of week 7 Seattles pass defense is ranked 3rd overall. [Legion of Boom demise greatly exaggerated] Again, not entirely sure if this trend continues but Seattles top 5 guys [Griffin, McDougald, Thompson, Flowers and Coleman] are all under contract moving forward. Barring a major injury or massive flame out, there is no need in the secondary currently.
  3. What TV Show Are You Watching?

    Finished The Good Place Season 2 last night. Still think its one of the best shows to come out in the last decade. With the new direction, gonna miss the absurdity and surrealism, but the strength has always been the characters. Not sure when ill pick up season 3.
  4. Fallout 76

    I love Bethesda, but they haven't earned any benefit of the doubt regarding optimization. Shadow Distance was a DAY0 issue with Fallout4, and they never fixed it.
  5. Week 6 GDT

    Well Seattle could use another DT or Strong Side End, so if you got any of them, please send them along.
  6. Week 6 GDT

    CB 3rd Round Pick CB 6th Round Pick CB UDFA SS UDFA FS 4th Round Pick = 3rd Best Pass Defense
  7. Fallout 76

    So gameplay looks fun. But my god, the performance looks atrocious in many gameplay videos. So much jerking, stuttering and hiccups. Bethesda doesn't have much of a track record regarding improved performance. That is a major turn off and the only thing preventing me from buying.
  8. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    True, Goff was awesome that game, but LA's offensive line straight up dominated. Seattle got to Goff once on the opening drive, then didn't get within an arms reach of Goff afterwards.
  9. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    So for all the talk about the dismantling of the Legion of Boom, Seattle currently rocks the 3rd best pass defense.
  10. Week 6 GDT

    The Legion of Whom doing big boy things out there.
  11. Seahawks owner Paul Allen dies at 65

    In the 20 years before Allen bought the team, the Seahawks went to the playoffs 4 times winning 1 AFC West title. In the 20 years after Paul bought the team the Seahawks have been to the playoffs 12 times, won 9 NFC/AFC West Titles and went to 3 Super Bowls. Huge loss for the Seahawks, and the city of Seattle in general.
  12. Seattle Seahawks (2-3) vs Oakland Raiders (1-4)

    Frank Clark, PAY THE MAN! This game was won in the trenches, with both Seattle units dominating the LOS.
  13. Does Your OL Suck? Your Coaching? How About a Certain DB?

    OL : Actually... yeah. For all the flack Seattle took, their Offensive line has been solid to good since week 2. They have run for about 450 yards in the last three weeks, and have kept Russell clean for the most part. Even Ifedi, which is insane to think about. Coaching : Meh. - With Pete ya know what you are going to get. - Shotty has been a big fat blah thus far. His gameplan has been causing Seattle fans to wax poetically about how Darell Bevell really knew how to play to Russells strengths. Russell has been pretty mediocre this year and its kinda sad. - Ken Norton has been ok. Considering the talent lost this year, the defense has been solid. Losing Kendricks before KJ got back healthy really hampered them last week. Secondary : Minor not Major Tre Flowers is the weakest link, but considering he is a FS converted to corner, he gets some leeway. Been playing pretty serviceable overall. Thompson is a definitely a step down from Earl, but he has been pretty solid as well this year. The coaching staff loves him. The secondary got absolutely roasted by Goff last week though, though most secondary's do.
  14. Week 5 Gameday thread

    What is my position? That penalties didn't influence the game that much?
  15. Week 5 Gameday thread

    If they were THAT clear, why weren't more called? Maybe.... there are more tinted glasses going around? 50/50 called. It was a fine call, but not one made every time. Said this before. Seattle had a fumble recover picked up after a "illegal contact". Bringing this type of stuff up doesn't really mean anything. Penalties were a complete wash in this game.
  16. Week 5 Gameday thread

    Just a tired, old, nonsense, lazy patsy statement.
  17. Week 5 Gameday thread

    Didn't know they ended that rule. IDK im not the ref, who knows what they were thinking in the replay booth. It was 2nd and goal anyway, silly thing to hang your hat on and say SEE!
  18. Week 5 Gameday thread

    Peters extended his arm and made contact as Moore went out. Pretty sure that influenced the call.
  19. Week 5 Gameday thread

    Guess my point is Seattle was called when they held on defense, LA was called when they held on defense, Seattle got away will holding on offense. LA got away will holding on offense. Penalties were a wash. Penalties only mattered late in the game when back to back Seattle penalties took Seattle out of field goal / running out the clock position. [not saying the holding was a bad call. Just that its impact was bigger than any other call previously].
  20. Week 5 Gameday thread

    Should of played the ball, played the body. Ah well.
  21. Week 5 Gameday thread

    Anyway, Rams won because their offensive line played amazingly. Goff had almost no pressure. LA weapons really make defensive coordinators second guess bringing extra pressure. Seattle really needs at least two pieces along the defensive line to get back to where they were three years ago.
  22. Week 5 Gameday thread

    It was. But its a 50/50 whether its actually called.
  23. Week 5 Gameday thread

    Not sure … where... huh?
  24. Week 5 Gameday thread

    He initialed contact as the ball reached the offensive player. Rams WR flopped and flailed. That type of play is not called 100%. Rams OL was never called for it. Seattles OL was called for it the most pivotal situation of the game. Arguing about penalties influencing the game is silly. It was a complete wash.
  25. Week 5 Gameday thread

    Rams DBs should have really stopped grabbing WRs. It was only one drive where a 3rd down penalty stopped a sack. That Shaq Griffin PI was a 50/50 call. So absurdly moot point.
