The Seahawks have been holding OTAs and mandatory minicamp over the past couple weeks and one notable player who is absent is wide receiver DK Metcalf. Is the team close to signing the former second round pick to a long-term deal? Would it be better to wait and pay DK to see if he has a subpar season? It may be that there is another good reason for the team to wait on before solidifying the deal (but not for too long). ESPN's Bill Barnwell recently released his rankings of best to worst teams considering how they've approached the offseason. The Broncos got the top spot by trading for Russell...

Sea Hawkers Podcast: for Seattle Seahawks fans

Organized team activities (OTAs) started for the Seahawks this past week. It's voluntary for the players to attend and participate, but there are some key takeaways that we pulled from the player interviews as well as the first injury announcement of a guy we hope to be a key player in the 2022 season. In the news, the Seahawks waived one rookie quarterback from the roster and there were several reports about the future of the franchise as the team will ultimately be sold "soon." With changes coming to the defensive side of the ball, Clint Hurtt was on Seattle radio to discuss some of the more...

Sea Hawkers Podcast: for Seattle Seahawks fans

As has become an annual tradition, Dave Bloomquist (a.k.a. Hong Kong Hawk) joins the show as a long-time member of the Flock to break down the Seattle Seahawks schedule release. Where do the Seahawks have some advantages within the schedule and where are the disadvantages? Early on, Seattle faces a very heavy road schedule while the second half becomes somewhat more favorable for travel. Plus, a look at the Rams schedule and where they have an overlooked advantage before playing Seahawks. The second half of the episode is an introduction to a new show coming in the fall with Clinton Bonner and...

Sea Hawkers Podcast: for Seattle Seahawks fans

It was an atypical draft year for the Seattle Seahawks in many ways. First, they had a top 10 pick for the first time since 2010. Second, they didn't trade out of their first pick (partly because they didn't need to considering they had back-to-back picks in the second round). Third, they took players that we actually had discussed leading up to the draft in positions relative to where most people considered the players to be available. Most important to their draft strategy is that they addressed the trenches with their first two picks. By doing so, should that have allowed them the luxury to...

Sea Hawkers Podcast: for Seattle Seahawks fans

Geno Smith has signed a deal to stay with the Seahawks for 2022, but it wasn't without drama this week. Before the signing was announced, Baker Mayfield was interviewed on a podcast and said that he thinks that the Seahawks could be a possible landing spot for him. Does the Geno signing change things? We rank the different factors that Geno, Baker and Drew Lock all bring to the team. The NFL Draft is less than a week away. Which position group (or groups) do we light up the torches and storm the VMAC if they decide to take a player at that position. To help illustrate why taking the best...

Sea Hawkers Podcast: for Seattle Seahawks fans

Russell Wilson has been traded to the Denver Broncos, Bobby Wagner has signed with the Los Angeles Rams and there are multiple Seahawks players who have gone to the Pro Bowl who seem unlikely to return to the team. The second Hawkpocalypse of the Pete Carroll and John Schneider tenure is upon us. Both Wilson and Wagner had their introductory press conferences in the past couple weeks, and we check in on each of them to get more information about their departure. We also learn that Russell Wilson's new head coach is a huge Wilson fanboy and based on everything we're hearing, this move could...

Sea Hawkers Podcast: for Seattle Seahawks fans

Last time we checked in with Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog, the Seahawks still only had one pick in the top 50. Now they have three and are in need of a quarterback. There also wasn't a lot of positivity around the options at quarterback in the draft. Now that the Seahawks are likely to be drafting competition for Drew Lock, who are some potential options that could fit? Pete Carroll recently said the Seahawks were "loaded" at center. That could be a tell that the Seahawks are targeting that spot early on in the draft. Regardless if they pick a center early, we discuss a number of player...

Based on some of the clues the Seahawks are giving us, what exactly is the direction for the team in 2022? Ultimately, we'll be able to judge that better once we know who is under center to start the season. Who is the likely favorite and which quarterbacks could be an option for this year? We also discuss some of the latest players to be signed by Seattle. Following the Russell Wilson trade, head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider spoke to the Seattle media. Pete talked about his philosophy and the importance of not changing your core beliefs. So how do some of these recent...

Sea Hawkers Podcast: for Seattle Seahawks fans

Seattle Seahawks fans were forced to move on from the best quarterback and the best linebacker in franchise history on the same day. For some fans, losing one hurts more than the other. As we attempt to understand the move, legacy has something to do with it whether it was Russell Wilson talking about his desire to win more Super Bowls or Pete Carroll who we have to expect has similar desires for his legacy. Pete now has an opportunity to do something that hasn't happened in the salary cap era of the NFL. In the last episode, we talked about some of the qualities we'd prefer not to have in a...

The Seattle Seahawks are shaking up the coaching staff on the defensive side of the football this offseason. What does it mean for potential changes schematically and what questions still remain? Clint Hurtt provided some thoughts toward issues we all saw this past season, but just how much input did he have in fixing those issues while they were happening this year? It's not just Hurtt who will look to make an impact on this Seahawks defense. Sean Desai and Karl Scott are a couple new faces and their numbers from their previous teams aren't matching up with the hype around them.

On offense, Tim Hasselbeck says Russell Wilson is done in Seattle and will take over in Pittsburgh next season. However, he glosses over a critical part about why the move work for both teams. Former Steelers defensive back Ryan Clark says Russ isn't "great" and shouldn't be in the conversation among the great QBs. Quandre Diggs is going to be a free agent, but he had a response for Clark that has us ready to push a contract in front of him immediately.

In the second half of the show we talk about the recovery process of dealing with some emotional football moments. We also list the Top 5 teams in the pick'em competition for the 2021 season as well as the weekly winners. There are a lot of people who still need to "Do Better" for how the season finished and Shaun White needs to stop making us feel old. Better at life honors go to a team that destroyed an ongoing narrative about quarterback salaries in the NFL and to a site that is correctly covering what will happen in the near future with Russell Wilson.
