    Russell Wilson in a Nutshell Individual Plays, Video Breakdowns, "That's SO RUSSELL"

    I thought it would be fun to have people post video links to individual Russell Wilson plays that show his strengths, weaknesses, and some measure of objective truth about the QB Russell was as a Seahawk, and then provide commentary/breakdown/analysis of why that play is "So Russell", good or...

    Eskridge, maybe a decent draft pick after all?

    Eskridge, 3 catches for 35 yards and a TD today, what are the odds he will pan out as a decent draft pick? What's his potential upside, player comparison? I was impressed by his elusiveness and situational awareness, to know to get out of bounds on that play on the sideline after eluding a...

    Can Russell rewire his head to "take the layups"?

    Kurt Warner lays it out here. Short version: Russell, take the open layups and move the chains. Stop trying to be "special" every play. Using the Rams playoff game as an example, Warner shows exactly where Russell has difficulty making reads and knowing where to go with the ball quickly. I...

    Cougar fans, gloat here over Apple Cup beat-down of Dawgs

    That was rare and unprecedented to see the Cougs come into Seattle and destroy the Huskies. Usually the Dawgs have superior athletes and bigger, stronger lines, and out-physical the Cougs. That Cougar defense was very impressive, didn't get manhandled like usual by the Husky O-line and run...

    Kirk Cousins finally wins a "Big Game", outduels Rodgers

    Kirk Cousins finally wins a big game, with a series of TD drives and a 2 minute drive that beats Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in a game that the Vikings HAD to have. In fairness to (the many) Cousins doubters, the only reason Cousins succeeded on the final drive was that a Packers DB dropped...

    PJ Walker, underdog QB of the week, Panthers devour Cards

    PJ Walker and the Carolina Panthers knocked down the Cards for us, on the road, meanwhile the Hawks took no advantage of the situation. It did help of course that Kyler Murray was out injured for the Cardinals. Yes, it helps having CMC back there at RB, and it helped that the Carolina D played...

    Mike White, new HOF QB for the JETS??!!???

    Who is this guy??!! How did the Hawks miss out on him, overlooking a player from a traditional QB-producing factory like Western Kentucky? They are approaching the status of ND State (Wentz and Lance) as an NFL QB factory. ... night.html So it only...

    How NE intended final play to look A/B comparison

    This is how New England was expecting that last play to look. Notice the formation, notice Bobby Wagner, notice the blocks that went according to script, and notice the hole that Cam Newton had to run through. Would enjoy any other A/B comparison breakdowns between the two plays, which look...

    Seahawks Rivals Grades on Jamal Adams trade? A from Big D

    Anybody got other good stuff on "NFC rival media" opinions on the trade? NOT the industry blowards, but actual rival-team-aligned media, Niners, Rams, Vikings etc. Here's what some of the Dallas-Cowboys-fan-oriented media thinks. Grade A for the Seahawks on this trade from Cowboys-aligned...

    Who will be this year's Redshirt Revelation for the Seahawks? Redshirt Revelation: A player who, as a rookie, or even 2nd year, barely saw the field, aside from perhaps special teams, but in his 2nd or 3rd season "lit it up", the light bulb went on, and they became a consistent force on the...

    PC/JS Draft Day Calls to Rookies - Incl 1 Instant Classic

    Last couple seasons we've had a thread of Draft Day calls. Loved listening to them. DK Metcalf's call was a *CLASSIC* "Why Y'All wait so long?" But WOW, did that emotion show in DK's PLAY as a rookie! This year, John Schneider's call to TE/WR Steven Sullivan of LSU is the early leader for...

    Frank Clark trade pays off for Chiefs?

    Frank Clark gets the 4th down sack that seals the SB win for the Chiefs! And Clark had some other key sacks and pressures in the playoffs too. I think Clark had some 4th quarter sacks vs. Tennessee. Any KC fans on here, who can weigh in on whether your team would make that trade again?

    G Phil Haynes - How did he do vs. Eagles?

    I did hear that rookie G Phil Haynes was in the game, but since he didn't get called for penalties that I saw, I didn't really notice him. How did Haynes hold up against the Eagles D-Line? Did he play like an overwhelmed rookie, or somewhat better than that?
