When will the Seahawks be great again?

When will the Seahawks be great again?

On the path-dependence of memory The 2013 Seahawks did not achieve greatness until just before 10pm EST, on February 2nd, 2014. The season was over, the Lombardi was ours, blue and green confetti rained across Metlife Stadium and in Seahawks fans’ dreams everywhere. And while the actual quality of that team would have been little changed by a loss of that Super Bowl, our perception of it would undoubtedly be different. The 2005 Seahawks had a nearly identical point differential and lost a terribly officiated Super Bowl by 11 points and how many fans view that team as “great”? Winning...

It's time to get creative to make Branden Albert a Seahawk

It's time to get creative to make Branden Albert a Seahawk

It is no secret that the Seattle Seahawks are in the market for a left tackle, and that acquiring a quality veteran to take over for Rees Odhiambo could make a world of difference over the remaining eleven weeks of the regular season and through the postseason. Unfortunately for the Hawks, one of the major stumbling blocks has been the salary cap and the constraints under which the team is operating financially this season. Branden Albert has been the primary focus of fans for much of the past week, having visited Seattle and received an offer he reportedly declined. The big issue, of...

Seahawks-Giants preview: 5 Qs, 5 As with Big Blue View

Seahawks-Giants preview: 5 Qs, 5 As with Big Blue View

The Seahawks look to build some momentum on Sunday in New York against the 1-5 Giants. Despite their record, the Giants are coming off of a convincing win against the Broncos, and are a tough team to pin down at the moment. To get some more answers, I sent five Qs over to Ed Valentine of Big Blue View, and he sent me a few As. Q: I think it's easy to see the results of the 1-5 Giants but from an outsiders perspective, maybe not understand what was wrong with the process that got them to this point. So finish this sentence ... The biggest reason for the Giants 0-5 start was ___________ And...

Seahawks could have used a mulligan on the curious Garry Gilliam decision

Seahawks could have used a mulligan on the curious Garry Gilliam decision

With the Seattle Seahawks coming off a bye week and not much going on other than continuing to not add a player to the offensive line, it’s a good time to look back on the team’s offseason decisions. I am not assuming perfect foresight, but rather, with the information the team had at hand, which decisions seem suspect now? For example, criticizing the Malik McDowell pick feels fruitless because his injury was unforeseeable, and signing Andrew Whitworth never made sense because the team was counting on George Fant as the left tackle of the future (which he backed up by his play in the...

The New York Giants have struggled to keep tight ends out of the end zone

The New York Giants have struggled to keep tight ends out of the end zone

No team spends more of its salary cap on the defensive side of the ball than the Seattle Seahawks, but the runners-up are the New York Giants, who went on a major spending spree in the 2016 offseason. The defense-heavy acquisitions were key to the Giants making the playoffs last season, but that unit has largely underperformed this season, ranking an uninspiring 22nd in DVOA. Perhaps spurred on by playing a mediocre offense last Sunday, the Giants were able to shut down the Denver Broncos and win 23-10, with Janoris Jenkins intercepting a Trevor Siemian pass and taking it back for a big...

Referee involved in controversial Patriots-Jets game gets assigned to Seahawks-Giants

Veteran NFL referee Tony Corrente has the rarity of getting to officiate in the same stadium for the second week in a row. Corrente and his crew have been assigned to this Sunday’s Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants matchup, one week after the controversial New England Patriots at New York Jets game. As a refresher, Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins originally was ruled to have scored a touchdown about midway through the 4th quarter, but when the play was reviewed, Seferian-Jenkins was seen clearly fumbling the ball, and Corrente announced to an irate Jets fanbase that Seferian-Jenkins...

Though it could still be awhile before he gets into a game, or even a full practice, Seahawks rookie Malik McDowell is at least back out onto the field in some capacity.

Identity Shift: Bill Belichick inadvertently explains the 2017 Seahawks to us

Identity Shift: Bill Belichick inadvertently explains the 2017 Seahawks to us

The whole premise of this column is that NFL teams are not static. A perceived strength can disappear over time; a new wrinkle in the offense can mean an extra win or two; a significant injury can derail a season. And it doesn’t always have to be Aaron Rodgers donating his collarbone to every other NFC team’s playoff chances. Last year it was Earl Thomas’ absence that turned the Seattle Seahawks from a team that thrived on limiting the explosive play to one who suddenly had to keep up with the explosive plays of other teams. Then, take 2015, when the Seahawks suffered injuries in...

The Seattle Seahawks will be forced to reshuffle the offensive line, starting with this Sunday’s road game against the New York Giants. Head coach Pete Carroll confirmed at Tuesday’s press conference that left guard Luke Joeckel, who underwent knee surgery during Seattle’s bye week, is expected to be out for several weeks. “We are going to be optimistic that he can make it back in four, five weeks and we’ll see what happens,” Carroll said. “Maybe that is possible, maybe that isn’t. We got to see how he heals and how he comes back around. He definitely needed to get some...

Week six of the 2017 NFL season will go down as an all-time memorable one. Whether it was the devastating Aaron Rodgers injury, the controversial touchdown reversal in the Patriots-Jets game, the fat guy touchdowns (plural!) in New Orleans, Antonio Brown’s miraculous catch, last week was just pure chaos.

Assessing the NFC in a post-Aaronocalypse world

Assessing the NFC in a post-Aaronocalypse world

Looking at the standings is an easy way to assess how mish-mashed and jumbled the NFL is after six weeks. There are now no undefeated teams, and only three teams have fewer than two wins: The Giants (who just had a very convincing road win over the Broncos), Browns, and 49ers. Also, only two teams have fewer than two losses: The Chiefs (who just lost at home to the Steelers) and the Eagles (who’ve only lost to the Chiefs). Focusing on the NFC, which is really the only thing that matters as far as the Seahawks are concerned, and it’s interesting to wonder how any team could be...

Dan Quinn’s Atlanta Falcons have blown three 17+ point leads in the span of a year

The Seattle Seahawks got some help from the Miami Dolphins, whose moribund offense rattled off four consecutive scoring drives to turn a 17-0 halftime deficit into a 20-17 road win over the Atlanta Falcons. Matt Ryan drove Atlanta into field goal range, but in going for the win, the reigning MVP threw an interception in the closing seconds. After a 3-0 start calmed early concerns about a “Super Bowl loss hangover” for the defending NFC champions, consecutive home losses on either side of the bye week has some Falcons fans panicking, especially since they have three straight road games...
