298: Los Angeles Rams - Know Your Rival 2020

The month of July is traditionally the month where we look around the division at the other NFC West rivals to get an idea of how the landscape has changed since the previous season. That tradition continues for our show this year, but instead of bringing on other podcasters this season, we're going to be putting in the work and doing the research ourselves. Kicking off the month of July is the Los Angeles Rams. They have a new logo, they have new uniforms and they have a new stadium. Those...


297: Decoding Pete Carroll's Comments on Colin Kaepernick

This is normally the time of the offseason where we would talk about the Seahawks finishing up OTAs, instead we're talking about the end of the team's zoom meetings. With the relatively lack of news, some of the biggest news still remains the comments from Pete Carroll revisiting the team's decision not to sign Colin Kaepernick. We provide some of the context that Carroll may have been unwilling to offer in the press conference with the mindset of trying to protect his team, while at the...


296: Clowney turns down the Browns, Pete Prisco joins Team 'Let Russ Cook'

NFL teams are returning to their facilities starting on Friday so that is hopefully a positive step toward having an NFL season this year. The Carlos Hyde signing may be sending a less than positive signal about the health of Rashaad Penny though. The guys talk about how a potentially troubling aspect of the signing is how has Eddie Lacy as the "best comp" for Hyde. Jadeveon Clowney remains unsigned and the latest rumors say he turned down a deal from the Browns worth $12...


Bobby Wagner is hurting like everybody else

Bobby Wagner met with reporters on Monday and it turned into a conversation more than a news conference. Many of the news stories that came out yesterday and today are based on this call, and this will give you the full context of what was discussed. I cut out some of the audio problems that came up during the call, silence between questions, some "ums" and the four football questions that took away from the conversation that dominated the call.


295: Assigning blame for the Seahawks offseason - It's the Giants' fault

It's the first show of the second half of the Seahawks offseason, just past the Seahawkquinox, and there were a lot of strange things to happen at the apex of the offseason. First, we discuss the rumor that apparently was being thrown around two years ago, but was apparently only worth reporting now that Russell Wilson is being considered as the second-most untradeable player in the offseason. We go back to the initial audio that sparked the flurry of stories as Chris Simms seemed to...


Bonus: The INs and OUTs of the 2020 Seahawks Schedule

The Seattle Seahawks 2020 schedule is out and every year for the last few years now Dave Bloomquist, one of our long-time members of the flock, joins the show to dig deep into the schedule. Dave looks at the rest days for the team and finds where there are some of the toughest stretches of the upcoming season regardless of the strength of opponent. We also take a look back into history to see where the team performs well, and doesn't perform so well, to start the season. Clinton Bonner joins...


294: Seattle Seahawks 2020 Draft Recap

The Seattle Seahawks went into the draft with a need to improve the pass rush and came away with two defensive ends. Can Darrell Taylor and Alton Robinson help make up the difference with Jadeveon Clowney looking like he may not return to the team? Jarran Reed taking his old number back is the latest clue that Clowney has plans to go to another team this offseason. Two more players who won't be back are Justin Britt and D.J. Fluker. While Fluker got a lot of love on his way out the door,...


The Seahawks close out the 2020 NFL Draft with five picks on Day 3

Our bonus daily coverage of the 2020 NFL Draft wraps up with a look at the Seahawks Day 3 selections. Did the Seahawks fully address their needs or do they have more work to do before the start of the season? What kind of immediate impact could their new group have on the team? Rob Staton of the Seahawks Draft Blog is back on the podcast as we talk about all five of the picks from the third day of the draft. Colby Parkinson was a player who was talked about as a potential first round pick...


Seattle Seahawks 2020 NFL Draft Day 2 Reaction

The Seahawks made a big move near the start of Day 2 of the 2020 NFL Draft to move up and select pass rusher Darrell Taylor of Tennessee. They gave up their 3rd round compensatory pick to make the move, but were able to add a mid-fourth round pick by trading back from the final pick of the second round. In the third round, at pick 69, Seattle went with another SEC player in the trenches. Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog joins the podcast and says he had LSU guard Damien Lewis consistently...


Reacting to the Seahawks selection after the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft

The Seattle Seahawks stayed put on the first day of the draft and selected Texas Tech linebacker Jordyn Brooks. Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog comes back on the show to react to the pick. With so many needs on the team, it's difficult for fans to accept that the Seahawks have now used their top draft asset as the biggest needs for the team remain the biggest needs.


293: Pre-draft coverage with Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog

We've got Rob Staton back on the podcast for one last show before the draft. Prior to the show, we listened in to the press conference with Pete Carroll and John Schneider and discuss some of our takeaways regarding the ongoing situation with Jadeveon Clowney, the state of the Seahawks pass rush, and how the focus on the offensive line in free agency. Considering the lack of immediate contributors at the defensive end spot, it may be better for the Seahawks to look toward the defensive...


292: Greg Olsen learns the culture of the Seahawks TE group, ranking the 2020 quarterback draft class

This show starts off by recapping the Seahawks news from the past two weeks, including the sad news of former Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson passing away this week. In free agency news, Seattle continues to add to the offensive line by bringing back Mike Iupati. What does this mean for the team in terms of how they approach the 2020 draft and which players are going to be competing for which positions? With the draft beginning next week, we discuss the similarities and differences...


291: Seahawks draft prospects on the offensive and defensive line

Times are tough for some of the 2020 NFL Draft prospects. Particularly those prospects who would have been able to shine in front of NFL scouts at the various team Pro Days across the country. While there are quite a few players to feel sympathy for, there is a subset of players for which Rob Staton has no sympathy. Rob talks about a few players who had an opportunity to compete at the NFL Combine and chose not to ultimately missed out on what ended up being their last chance to display...


290: Evaluating the Frank Clark trade one year later, best Seahawks among NFL jersey numbers

The Seahawks made a couple moves in the last week of free agency and freeing up some salary cap space with the release of Ed Dickson and the announcement that Tedric Thompson would be released soon. With those two moves announced on the same day, Seahawks fans were anticipating bigger news. Instead, we learn that Jadeveon Clowney's public asking price has now dropped below the $20 million mark. At the very least, hopefully it means there is some resolution on the issue soon. With some down...


289: Time for Clowney to get off the fence, ranking the Seahawks best moves so far

The Seahawks are now into the second week of free agency and Jadeveon Clowney has not yet made a decision to return to the Seahawks or move on to another team. What is making this decision so difficult for Seattle's top pass rusher? In the meantime, the Seahawks made two moves that have some potential upside for the roster by sending a 5th round draft pick to Washington for a cornerback going into the final year of his contract. Quinton Dunbar received the 2nd highest coverage grade from PFF...


288: What the CATFISH is John Schneider doing? Oh wait, that makes sense

It's incredible how things have changed in just the short time since our last episode. As we all deal with some of the many changes that we're working through, it's fun to take some time and think about things like Seahawks football. So with NFL free agency moving on as scheduled, the Seahawks are focusing primarily on the offensive line while adding a veteran pass rusher as Bruce Irvin returns to the Seahawks. Along the defensive line Jarran Reed returns to Seattle while Quinton Jefferson...


287: Seahawks needs versus wants ahead of free agency

For the two months since the conclusion of the Seahawks season, every position group has now been dissected to the point that a person could be convinced that every area of the team has room to find improvement. Ahead of free agency next week, Adam and Brandan direct the focus toward what the Seahawks really need to find in free agency and away from the positions that could be considered as luxury moves. But if Seattle is going to have a championship offseason, their financial focus truly...


286: Ngakoue trade rumor clouds situation with Clowney, post-combine talk with Rob Staton

This week the rumor is that the Seattle Seahawks may be looking to trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars for their top defensive end Yannick Ngakoue. This could signal a few different things with regard to Jadeveon Clowney. Perhaps they've decided to move on from Clowney (a bit too early to seem likely), or it could be that they are trying to gauge the market before making their best offer to Clowney. It may be they want him in addition to keeping Clowney or they are simply doing their due...


285: 2020 NFL Combine preview - How to look for potential future Seahawks

With some changes to the 2020 NFL Combine schedule, it's going to allow for more people to watch coming up on Thursday and Friday evening. Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog joins the show to talk about some of the changes and go position-by-position through the combine on what the Seahawks are likely to be looking for based on their historical selections. If you're interested in particular position groups, or want to go back and focus on a particular position group, here are the areas of...


284: Free agent news - Greg Olsen to the Seahawks, Jadeveon Clowney wants a market-setting contract

The first big news of the offseason hit on Tuesday this week as the Seahawks announced that they had agreed to terms with former Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen. While Seattle was in the market for a tight end this offseason considering the problems they had with depth at the position, is paying a 35-year-old the best approach. Brandan and Adam discuss the pros and cons of the situation and why the team could have felt that this was the best move to make. In the division, we saw what...
