    The good
    -Pocic: Overall, the first team OLine looked good, including Pocic. A promising start.
    -Quil Griffin: Everyone's really excited and his bro, but Two-Six looked good & comfortable in Sherm's old spot.
    -T2: Didn't notice him. But, that's good since he didn't allow any receivers run by him.
    -David Moore: Made a nice catch from Austin Davis. The only deep ball from a receiver.
    -Chris Carson: Possibly the best under the radar RB in the league. No one outside of Seattle is saying anything about him.
    -Naz Jones: While he didn't play, we know he'll contribute.

    Jury still out
    -Delano Hill: The only play I remember is his missed tackle on a critical 3rd down late in the game.
    -Amara Darboh: I hope he's not Prosise 2.0. Always hurt.
    -Mike Tyson. The only reason why I noticed him is because he's wearing Beastmodes number and I kept asking myself shouldn't we retire number 24?

    Overall, the 2017 & 2016 draft classes are looking really good.


    You're a year off buddy.

    So, Ifedi, if his head is screwed on straight finally, should be a starter.

    Reed, Vannett, and possibly Jefferson (who looked real good last night) are also Starters.

    Odihambo and Hunt are serviceable back-ups, and Alex Collins is a starter for Baltimore.

    That's way more hits than misses, maybe not a dismal Draft afterall?

    The Seahawks have been drafting fine, for the most part. CABEVELL were sabotaging their drafts though. If you look at most of the "busts" they were offensive players. Especially Offensive Lineman. The only major swing & miss on defense was Malik McDowell. They didn't miss on his talent though. They rolled the dice and came up snake eyes unfortunately.

    2013 was bad. 14 was okay. 15 was okay. 16 was good. 17 was good. 18 is looking outstanding in the early going.

  • My take away was the 1's. All in all they did a great job. I don't care how the blocking came to be whether it was with an improved oline, better blocking TE's, etc. I'm just glad to see RW getting some time to survey the field.

  • Russ was locked in as usual, and clearly didn't look "fat" or "slow"
    But I loved what I saw out of Dissly and the O Line opened some holes. The running backs looked aggressive too.
    And Shaquem Griffen was all over the field. At one point, making 4 straight tackles. Love watching him play. Clearly has a passion for it. That wasn't some feel good signing only, he's just a really good football player.
    Also, considering that Tre Flowers has been a safety, he looked like he has some serious potential as a corner. Impressive being that this is all new for him.

    He's had that time much more often than anyone gives him credit for. Problem is, he runs before pressure arrives. It looks like Schotty's insistence on him taking one more second before running, has been getting through.

    This is what I keep saying. A net result is that Russ was getting rid of the ball much quicker. The line was blocking good, but one thing that must be mentioned is that they didn't have to hold onto the ball as long, and that Wilson was actually doing a good job manipulating the blockers. Russ holds the ball longer than any other QB in the NFL, consistently. I really liked the new Russ I saw last night.


    This is beating a dead horse at this point. People are seeing what they want to see.

    What I saw Thursday night was something that looked like Aaron Rodger’s offense. He gets protection, rolls out, then fires a rocket. There’s a big difference in bailing the pocket for a better play, and bailing the pocket because you can’t trust your O-line. And being unable to trust your line, because you’re not consistently protected.

    Unless you’re both claiming Cable was a good coach, it is quite frankly silly to pretend as if the addition of Dissly, a healthy Brown, and better coaching has made zero difference. And that the only difference is that a 6 year veteran is now a “New” quarterback. I love my fellow Hawks fans, but stubborness is not the way to properly debate this. Protection has improved, and Russ’s trust in protection has improved. That’s okay to admit

    Either way, I guess I should just brace myself for the inevitable hot takes from the Pete Prisco’s of the world to claim that Schotty has “Fixed” Russell and made him a proper QB. When in reality Schotty has the best Qb he’s ever worked with


    I know what I've seen on tape. Wilson bails from clean pockets regularly. NOT every play, certainly, and I'm not suggesting Cable wasn't part of the problem.

    But it's already been statistically established that Wilson is top 3 at holding onto the ball in the NFL. With bad pass protection, that wouldn't be possible. So it's pretty clear he's bailing. For every example of Ifedi getting beat (and there are plenty), the tape shows an example where Wilson runs right past Ifedi and into the path of whomever he's blocking.

    People are programmed to assume bad pass pro whenever a QB scrambles, and announcers help by making bad calls all the time. It's just what it is. Schotty is now fixing that part of Wilson, while Solari is fixing the OL side. Both have been an issue.
    GO HAWKS!!!
