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.

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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

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...

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.

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

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?

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.

Sea Hawkers Podcast

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...

Is this the beginning of Hawkpocalypse 2.0? Russell Wilson traded to the Broncos, Bobby Wagner released from the Seahawks. Could there be more trades to come for Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf? Those are questions going through the minds of so many Seahawks fans after the first week of March. Even if it's just Russ and Bobby, it an end of an era in Seattle. As this era comes to a close, should it be the same regime that rebuilds? Whether or not it should be, it looks as though it must have the stamp of approval from ownership. Drew Lock, though part of the trade package, is not an answer at...

Sea Hawkers Podcast

Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog checks in to talk about a draft strategy for Seattle heading into this year's NFL Combine. Where do they need to improve and what position groups should they target to improve where it could count most in 2022? It turns out that the area where the Seahawks need to improve most (on the offensive and defensive line) are particular strengths for this year's draft class. While there may not be the obvious top talent, there are some significant areas to add depth. Finding an interior pass rusher could prove difficult where the Seahawks sit in the second round, but...
