Sea Hawkers Podcast

The Seattle Seahawks have now lost to a Colt McCoy quarterbacked team for back-to-back seasons. The latest loss to the Arizona Cardinals was especially frustrating because we saw a Seahawks defense that allowed McCoy to throw to the open guy right in the middle of the field.  The issues we're seeing on both offense and defense appear to boil down to one common theme. Pete Carroll is a stats nerd. Of course we know that it's all about the ball and avoiding turnovers has been important to Pete for winning games, but there is an emphasis on explosive plays that seems to drive both the...

355: Shutout extends Seahawks Lambeau curse show art 355: Shutout extends Seahawks Lambeau curse

Sea Hawkers Podcast

The streak of losses continued at Lambeau Field this past Sunday. Russell Wilson returned to the lineup, but was not his usual self. We discuss some of the missed throws, bad decisions, and adjustments the team could make until Russ can return to full health. Although the scoreboard showed a 17-0 loss, the argument is made that the 3-0 score through the first three quarters was more of an indicator of the team's performance. However, the team is now 3-6 and leaves the team in a difficult position to try and make the playoffs. With the two-loss Arizona Cardinals next up on the schedule, Seattle...

The Seahawks are coming off their bye week and Russell Wilson isn't the only Seahawks player ready to return. Chris Carson, Dee Eskridge and Nigel Warrior are all back in practice this week, but we'll have to wait and see what their status is on gameday. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers status is up in the air for Sunday, but it sound fairly confident that he'll be able to recover from testing positive despite the short window of time. If Rodgers can't make it back, the Seahawks may have to take a playbook from the Chiefs defense and put significant pressure on Jordan Love. Odell...

353: A new phrase for dominating the Jaguars show art 353: A new phrase for dominating the Jaguars

Sea Hawkers Podcast

The Seahawks head into their bye week with a 31-7 performance where they dominate the Jacksonville Jaguars. Dominate is one way to put it. Putting a spanking on them is another. Combine that with an alternative feline name for the Jags and you have the unofficial title for this week's show. Seattle heads into their bye week at 3-5, which is one game behind where we really wanted to see them following the Russell Wilson injury. But before we get there, we talk about one of the dumber celebration penalties we've seen in the NFL and hear the reaction from Pete Carroll when the official attempted...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

With the latest 13-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints, and a game that was in their grasp to get the win in front of the home crowd, it brings up more questions about this Seattle Seahawks team. When Geno Smith came in after Russ went down in the Rams game, the way he played and the flow of the offense made us all believe there was a plan on how best to use Smith. Has anything changed with the offense to help Geno? The Seahawks failed in so many areas against the Saints. After the touchdown to DK Metcalf, Seattle had fewer than 50 net yards passing. The defense failed to stop the one guy who...

351: Time for Pete Carroll to take more risks show art 351: Time for Pete Carroll to take more risks

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...

After taking a week off, Adam and Brandan are back to talk about the game that earned the Seahawks a #1 seed in the NFC. The road to the Super Bowl goes through Seattle!

The Seahawks defense set the tone in the 27-9 win over St. Louis with an interception return by Malcolm Smith. From there, the Seahawks offense was able to add 20 with the help of one of the biggest meltdowns we've ever seen on the field by a player.

Coach Carroll surprised many of us today with an announcement that Percy Harvin is going to practice this week with a plan to play in the playoff game on Saturday, January 11. This comes after days of speculation that Harvin would be placed on injured reserve for the playoffs.

The guys play a couple of calls into the show and talk about why fans should get used to the idea of bandwagon fans. The officials have taken away the Seahawks' opportunity for a revenge game and a Seahawks-centric "Better at Life."
