Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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+...

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...

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...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

We all remember the biggest blowout of the Pete Carroll era. The 58-0 win over the Arizona Cardinals back in 2012 was one of a string of performances by Seattle leading up to the playoffs in Russell Wilson's rookie season where everything was clicking for the team. 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...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...

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...

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...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...
