Renegades 24 Dragons 12: Offense? What offense?

Renegades 24 Dragons 12: Offense? What offense?

Photo by Joe Nicholson/XFL via After the high of a dramatic 2nd half comeback to win their first XFL game last week, the Seattle Dragons (1-2) completely fell apart in the 2nd half against the Dallas Renegades (2-1). More than 22,000 at CenturyLink Field saw the Dragons start strongly but fade badly on both sides of the ball, as Dallas overcame a halftime deficit and prevailed 24-12. Brandon Silvers played better than he did last week while simultaneously playing poorly, especially in the 2nd half. He was worse than the 21/34 for 204 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT stat line suggested. While the...

All-22 Review: Greg Olsen will be put in a position to succeed

All-22 Review: Greg Olsen will be put in a position to succeed

Photo by Jennifer Stewart/ The Seahawks found a logical answer at tight end on Tuesday, signing veteran Greg Olsen to a one-year deal. Olsen’s signing gives Seattle and Russell Wilson another reliable option, but it doesn’t tie up money (or snaps) long-term, should the snake-bitten Will Dissly stay healthy moving forward. In 2019, injuries forced Jacob Hollister into a larger role than first expected, after he began the season on the Seahawks’ practice squad. Though Hollister performed admirably, it was still a tertiary piece at tight end forced into the main role. Olsen should be...

What to keep in mind while watching the NFL combine

What to keep in mind while watching the NFL combine

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ It’s been a newsworthy week for the Seattle Seahawks, and it’s still early in the offseason. Things started off with the Arizona Cardinals getting the ball rolling in the tackle market, which could impact how much both George Fant and Germain Ifedi get as free agents next month. Tuesday reports emerged that the Hawks had come to agreement on a one-year deal with free agent tight end Greg Olsen, who has spent the past several years with the Carolina Panthers. At some point later Friday, the league should announce which teams are the recipients of the comp picks...

Vikings DE Everson Griffen opts out, could be an attractive option for Seahawks

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports It was less than a week ago that criticism rained down on Field Gulls and myself as an author for spreading doom and gloom regarding the potential for the Seattle Seahawks to trade for Stefon Diggs. However, according to reports this morning, it appears as though my understanding of leverage and predicting the behavior of others regarding financial and valuation matters are being shown to reign supreme. Per Courtney Cronin, who covers the Minnesota Vikings for ESPN, Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen has elected to opt out of his contract and will...

Why Seahawks shouldn’t forego free agency for comp picks

Why Seahawks shouldn’t forego free agency for comp picks

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Two years ago, during the NFL free agency period following the 2017 season, many fans of the Seattle Seahawks were upset that the team signed role players that offset the comp picks the team would have otherwise been awarded for the departure of several key players. The team had failed to qualify for the playoffs, as a Blair Walsh miss in the season finale against the Arizona Cardinals left the team at 9-7 and outside of the playoffs for the only time during the Russell Wilson era. That season led to the team overhauling the coaching staff, with Darrell Bevell,...

NFL reportedly on brink of making big changes

Photo by Rob Carr/ With roughly thirteen months left in the current NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement, there is no true rush for the players and the NFL owners to come to an agreement on an extension. However, due to the significant difficulties that would arise if an extension is not agreed to prior to the start of the new league year on March 18, both sides appear to be working hard to reach an agreement. Specifically, reports have emerged in recent days that there is a very real possibility that the two sides could realistically reach agreement very soon. In addition, according to...

What signing Greg Olsen means for Seahawks salary cap

Photo by Jacob Kupferman/ Tuesday the Seattle Seahawks announced that they had signed tight end Greg Olsen, who had spent the prior 13 seasons with the Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers. In Seattle Olsen will get to catch passes from Russell Wilson while opening holes for the run game for Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. Olsen should provide at least some level of stability in a tight end room that has seen a massive number of injuries in recent seasons. While the running backs get most of the attention in terms of the injury issues at the position, over the past five years the tight...

Many Seahawks fans excited that comp pick time has almost arrived

3rd round comp pick, Amara Darboh | Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Every offseason it seems that many fans of teams who lose big name, expensive free agents console themselves that the loss will yield the team a comp pick in the next season’s draft. Fans of the Seattle Seahawks are no different, and at no point in recent history was this a bigger topic than in the spring of 2018, when the Hawks cancelled out potential mid-round comp picks for the losses of Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham with the signings of players like Jaron Brown and Ed Dickson. Whether a fan believes that letting free...
