For the first time in franchise history, the Seattle Seahawks are undefeated through the first five games of the season. This week's show starts off with a fair amount of concern over the health of our fellow fans. Just how many more of these kind of endings can Pete Carroll expect us to endure? While the first half against the Vikings wasn't much to get excited about, the ability of the defense to hold Minnesota to only 13 points to start the game may have been the most important factor of that half. The Seahawks only needed five good minutes of offense in the second half to help get the team to their first 5-0 start. Looking at the offense, D.K. Metcalf not only had the game-winning touchdown reception, he added another touchdown along with a huge 40-yard catch on fourth down. It was an incredible game for Metcalf. We also highlight some of the biggest moments from Russell Wilson on the final drive of the game, and some of the other members of the Seahawks offense. Looking ahead to the next four games, Seattle has a stretch of three road games in four weeks, and their first run through their NFC West rivals coming up. We discuss the outlook for the team moving forward. In the second half of the show, we take a look back at two of DCH's biggest predictions that he was able to reverse jinx into existence. Anyone critical of his performance last week owes an apology. Congratulations to Joseph V.T. who won last month's tiny piece of Seahawks stuff and congrats to Tonbridgehawk for winning the pick'em league for Week 5. Tune in to the final segment of the show to find out a specific aspect of football that Rams quarterback Jared Goff needs to 'Do Better' at, and learn how a popular show on Netflix is giving out advice that is less helpful than the combined efforts of the Flock. Better at life honors go to Alex Smith for his return and to an anonymous Vikings fan who is fed up with his team.

The Seattle Seahawks are 4-0 for the second time in franchise history. They've also scored 30+ points over four games for the second time in the Russell Wilson era and the third time in franchise history. The other two stretches were in 2015 and back in 1986. Joining the show to talk about the 31-23 victory over the Dolphins is Doug Chanselle-Hary, or DCH as he is often referred to on the show. Russell Wilson threw for 360 yards and two touchdowns, and despite continuing to be on pace to tie Peyton Manning's record for touchdown passes in a season, we gripe about some of the touchdown passes that were left out there on the field. Mixed reviews on the defense this week from the crew as there was only one punt on the day for Miami. However, they turned the ball over twice and they managed to hold Miami to field goals up until the point the Seahawks were up by two touchdowns late in the fourth quarter. Coming up this Sunday night is a matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have not won a game against Pete Carroll since he joined the Seahawks back in 2010. In fact, Carroll has only lost one game in his career as a head coach or defensive coordinator versus Minnesota. If the Seahawks are going to win this game, stopping Dalvin Cook will be a critical component. In fact, this team matches up very closely with what Seattle saw against Dallas in Week 3. In the second half of the show, we talk about the impacts of the virus on the league this past week and how it has the potential derail the season. Congrats to Mentals Bodies Chicken (a former league champion) for getting the top spot this week with 14 games correct in the pick'em league.  Do Better goes to a new style of graphic for players instead of a photo and to the Houston Texans franchise.

The Seattle Seahawks are 3-0 for the first time since 2013. So why does it feel different three games into the season than it did back then? One difference is that Russell Wilson has now set himself apart from the league and has some of the best weapons on offense of his career. But the defense has given up more passing yards to opponents than any other team in history. The 2011 Patriots and Packers and the 2018 Chiefs were playoff teams that had similar issues in the secondary through the first three games and went on two win a lot of regular season games. We take a look at what that means historically for a team's Super Bowl chances. We also get into the highlights from the last game against the Cowboys, the players who stood out, and some of the strange moments from Sunday's game. Sam Marcoux of the Perfectville Podcast joins us to preview Sunday's matchup with the Miami Dolphins. While Ryan Fitzpatrick may not be quite at the level of quarterback's the Seahawks have faced in the first three weeks, he has some significant weapons at receiver and had no problem torching the Jacksonville Jaguars defense on Thursday Night Football. Sam tells us why Seahawks fans should be crossing their fingers that his post-game attire is a red Hawaiian shirt. Congratulations go out to pick'em winners from the last two weeks. Sideline Sockeye for Week 2 and Unlimited Flocker for Week 3. In the Do Better segment, we learn there's a canary in the coal mine when it comes to finding power rankings that you should ignore. We also learn that Cowboys fans can tend to get litigious when their team is losing. Better at life honors go to Bills fans for coming up with an easy way to create Josh Allen apologies and to former Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse who announced his retirement this week.

The final play of the game will define the latest matchup between the Seahawks and Patriots, as Seattle earned the 35-30 victory. However, listening to national programs, you'd think Cam Newton had the breakout performance of his professional career. Cam may deserve a mention, but Russell Wilson should get the credit as the best quarterback in the game with his five touchdown passes to five different receivers. The balance of the offense shifted back closer to what we've come to expect from Coach Pete Carroll, but we're continuing to see some new things, too. Wilson didn't shy away from the challenge of going up against the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year either. Because they went right at Stephon Gilmore, this game will be remembered as the one where we knew D.K. Metcalf is on his way to stardom. Looking ahead to the Dallas Cowboys matchup, the Seahawks are going to need to stop Ezekiel Elliot both on the ground and through their screen game. Can the line stop Zeke the same way they held up Newton on Sunday night? If they can't, then it will be on Russ to continue to put up points. He should be able to do it after seeing the Cowboys defensive line underachieve in back-to-back weeks. In the second half of the show, we look around the NFC West from this past week. We also congratulate The Biggest Little Flocker on the Week 2 Pick'em victory. NFL defenses throughout the league need to do better, and so does a Patriots receiver who is trying to erase a nickname that he clearly earned and there is definitive documentary evidence for the reason why. Finally, the Seahawks offensive coordinator and Mr. Unlimited himself both land Better at Life honors this week.

Anyone questioning if Pete Carroll could drastically shift the dynamics of the offense and defense from last season to this season got their concerns answered in the Seahawks Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Their 38-25 victory featured an aggressiveness on offense rarely seen in previous years. No give up plays on 2nd and long, going for it all on fourth down while the Seahawks had the lead, and Russell Wilson looking as though he was in complete command of the offense. Defensively, Carroll used Jamal Adams to generate pressure in a way we haven't seen him use that position in the past. We saw nickel and dime defenses. With those exciting changes, there remain areas of significant concern. With the Seahawks leading by three scores and a relatively immobile quarterback in Matt Ryan, Seattle's defensive line still wasn't able to get into the backfield with any regularity. Late in the game we didn't see punishing runs by Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde to help put the game away. Atlanta had early success running the football and in the second half they completely abandoned the idea testing Seattle's defensive tackles. Against the Patriots, the Seahawks front seven will be tested defensively. New England ran the ball early against the Dolphins and then opened up a passing game in the second half that allowed them to move the ball very effectively against Miami. The Patriots strength on defense is in their secondary, but containing Russell Wilson has never been something New England has had much success with. Let's see if the trend of what we saw on offense against the Falcons continues in Week 2. In the second half of the show take a look down at the 2019 NFC Champions in the cellar of the NFC West. We discuss the new club that Russell Wilson belongs to and another player who will be joining that club in the near future. A Pro Football Focus power rating and states Adam recently traveled through need to do better. Better at life honors go to the 'Let Russ Cookers' and to literally everyone not named Skip Bayless.

It was a big weekend for Seahawks news ahead of the Week 1 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. On Saturday, the team released its 53-man roster which highlighted the strengths and shortcomings we've been discussing a lot in the offseason. Now it's official-the defensive line has some big question marks. The next day, we learned that Jadeveon Clowney would not be returning to Seattle. Although reports showed that offers made to Clowney were valued at the range of the contract he ultimately signed, he is going back to the AFC to play in the division of his former team. To kick off the season, the Seahawks will take on the Atlanta Falcons. Matt Ryan was down with an injury last season and even though Seattle had a huge halftime lead, it ended up disappearing toward the fourth quarter. Are we going to see the Seahawks employ a similar strategy this season with their offense to try and go up big early against teams? Perhaps giving up more than 450 yards in the air to Matt Schaub last season was enough to emphasize the importance of improving depth in the secondary in the offseason. We close out the first half of the show talking about areas of the roster that could come back to bite the team by choosing to focus on depth and familiarity with the team rather than going after higher priced talent. In the second half of the show, we get a little pushback from one of our newest members of the flock on the pancakes versus waffles debate. We learn about how creative gender reveals need to consider temperature and climate in their decision making, and for people who pump gas and don't move their car before going into the store. Better at life honors go to Dan for helping Adam with trying to get internet in the woods and to the Seahawks for getting through training camp and testing virus free.

It's time for the annual assessment of our Seattle Seahawks before we head into the regular season. This first game against the Atlanta Falcons is coming up in less than three weeks! We talk about the areas of the team that improved the most in the offseason, the areas that we feel still need improvement, and at least one issue from 2019 that hasn't been talked about enough for how big of a problem it was for the team last season. On offense, will the Seahawks "Let Russ Cook" or will Pete Carroll shift to a more conservative approach and adopt the "Hammer the Rock" philosophy? Without preseason games, we can only go off the clues we've been given by some of the transactions. We can also go off some of the clues through short video releases to see how the offensive line is shaping up, but we also have to consider the competition when hyping up our own players. The offseason hype is in full swing when it comes to players like Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf, Phillip Dorsett, and Travis "TD" Homer. The blame for the hype goes all the way to the top. By "the top" we mean it goes even beyond Pete Carroll or even the NFL. The 2020 Podcast Pick'em League is now functional. Be sure and register and create a creative team name. Look for a bonus show later this week as we have even more than we talk about beyond this huge 2020 season kickoff episode. Tune in to hear which former Seahawks player needs to "Do better" and which site has a negative outlook on the Seahawks season. Better at life honors go to an eagle fighting "government overreach" and to our reigning 2019 pick'em league champion.

Prior to the deal for Jamal Adams, the Seahawks offseason addition of Quinton Dunbar was the biggest trade of the offseason. The likelihood that Dunbar would play for the team looked low throughout offseason, but now that his legal issues have been resolved Seattle’s secondary will get a big boost with both Dunbar and Adams. As we watch for a boost on the defensive line, the only recent addition was to sign Branden Jackson back to the team. But could we see something soon around Jadeveon Clowney, Everson Griffen or Clay Matthews? Our Know Your Rival series continues as we look at the moves the San Francisco 49ers made in the offseason. They’ve made some complimentary moves to address their biggest losses, but there are question marks that go along with each of those moves. With the 49ers coming off a Super Bowl loss, we discuss some of the same issues that the Rams and Seahawks had to endure after a big loss. After the break, an article confirms our thoughts about how NFC West QBs are ranked outside of Seattle. As we explored potential safe spaces for Seahawks backup QB Geno Smith, we learn of a unique phenomenon in the world that provides the ultimate protection. Closing the show, we talk about the return of Mr. Unlimited and the idea that the Seahawks don't have a top 40 fantasy football player on the team. Better at life honors go to the National Park Service and to a Bleacher Report writer for the perfect photo choice on an article about an NFLPA whistleblower hotline.

In a trade the Seattle Seahawks could not have timed any better for our podcast, Jamal Adams is now heading to the Pacific Northwest. Why was the timing so important? We can now celebrate a milestone of the show with some good news rather than talking about our rival that is the defending NFC Champion. Instead, we talk about the risks associated with the Adams trade, the various reactions among Seahawks fans and some questions about the team that still remain going into the season. As part of our milestone episode, Steve Raible joins the show and he talks about how announcing Seahawks games could be very different in this 2020 season. He shares some moments from his career with the team and we even talk about the popularization of the "Holy Catfish" call and the play from Marshawn Lynch's career that put the term in the consciousness of Seahawks fans. After the interview, we talk about the NFL Top 100 list, some of the recent roster cuts by Seattle and which 80s to 90s era Seahawks tattoo we would get. We close the show by talking about why China and Mike Florio need to do better. Better at Life honors go to the newest member of the Seahawks as well as a Canadian couple who went off the grid and may need to provide Geno Smith with some advice on living in solitude. We close the show with a thanks to all those supporting the podcast along with a new parody song (lyrics by Flocktimus Prime): Thank you for joining the Flock. We talk Seahawks around the clock. Your blood bleeds blue; you're a 12 and a friend of the pod. And when we hoist the Lombardi, you'll be celebrating with the crew. Well, you will see the biggest Facebook gif party, and you'll smile real big and say, "I'm glad I joined the Flock." Thank you for joining the Flock.

The Seahawks pulled off a trade on Saturday for an immensely talented safety. Jamal Adams was an All-Pro in 2019 and second team All-Pro the year before. Seattle is getting a player who immediately gives them another player on the defensive side of the ball that opposing teams will need to account for. But it also came at a big cost.  While Pete Carroll and John Schneider have dealt first round picks in the past, no trade comes close to the amount of risk associated with this deal. But giving up two future first round picks, it means that if an injury occurs that gives the team a top 10 pick - the Jets will now be the beneficiary.  Did the Seahawks also make a mistake by not using a similar trade package for help along the defensive line? The next few weeks will tell us if Seattle is actually satisfied with the moves they've made up front or if there is more work to be done ahead of the Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

We missed the cut last year and would really like to make it this year.  Before we get to the Arizona Cardinals offseason and their outlook for 2020, we discuss the decision to cancel preseason games. It will be the first time since we've been doing the show that we don't have a preseason crush going into Week 1 of the NFL. Included in the changes is how the team has allowed season ticket holders to opt out for their seats this year. We also discuss the PFF rankings for the Seahawks defensive line and how Michael Bennett's retirement means one less veteran who can come back and help offer some improvement. There's still some time before the season and as we review the Cardinals you'll understand that there isn't much difference between the lowest ranked team and being middle of the pack in the NFL. The Arizona Cardinals are a team, apart from maybe the Tampa Bay Bucs, who are widely seen as winning the offseason. But apart from optimism from last year and a blockbuster trade for one of the top wide receivers in the NFL, the NFC West rival parallels the Cleveland Browns in many respects. The most positive part of the Cardinals is that they have very few players who can be disliked. We need your help in making up some rumors to build up our sports hate for this particular team. In the second half of the show, we talk about the latest news in the Quinton Dunbar case. There is one reason to be optimistic that he could play for the team this season. The renaming of the Washington Football Team, means that a friend of a longtime listener also needs a new nickname. CBS Sports lands in the doghouse for both of the Do Better selections this week. There has been a lot of focus on team nicknames over the past couple weeks, so we close the show by focusing on the best and worst of team names throughout sports.

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 three things help add up to a 10-6 season according to some of our favorite Rams fans. With a significant loss of talent in the offseason, it's tough to see where the Rams find a way to improve off last season. The offensive line hasn't improve and that will prove to be the single biggest factor in the Rams decline. We take a look at an article of the top six offseason moves for the Rams, and that alone should provide the kind of clues that it's going to be an uphill battle for coach Sean McVay. In the second half of the show we talk about the record breaking Patrick Mahomes contract, Cam Newton signing with the Patriots, and another former Seahawks cornerback going to San Francisco. Truck manufacturers are called out along with NFC West writers who voted for one former Rams player to make the all-decade team for the division. Better at life honors go to a mutual friend and to the crew of Hard Knocks for continuing to move forward in shining a light on what the Rams will be dealing with leading up to the scheduled 2020 NFL season.

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 same time trying not to hurt Kap's chances of getting back into the NFL, and not wanting to talk about the potential for added distractions. Where have the Seahawks spent their money this offseason? In an offseason where there was potential to bring in some big name talent, to this point they've generally spread the money out rather than spending big in one spot. Can we really believe that Carroll is content with the job they've done to this point in the offseason? The potential for a 2020 season may even be in jeopardy, but Adam may have the expertise needed to consult with teams on how to live life outdoors and away from people, all things that may be necessary for football to happen in the fall. Closing out the show, we talk about camper home repair, how wrong Snopes is about Tom Brady, the excitement over rural Internet, and the Bridge to the Future march.

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 playerprofiler.com 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 million with incentives up to $20 million. Are the Seahawks really going to be content with the players they currently have on the defensive line going into the season? Pete Prisco's Top 100 list hit the street recently, which means it's time for a trip to Prisco's World. How has Prisco gone from having Russell Wilson ranked so low in the past to now being on team "Let Russ Cook"? We also go down the list and talk about the rankings of some of the players from our NFC West rivals. In the second half of the show, we respond to some emails and reviews and Adam talks about an uncomfortable experience in his Do Better. We also discuss how Tiger Woods let down Russell Wilson in the quarterback's charity efforts. Lastly, Pete Carroll closes the show with his message of empathy after watching a week of protests and violence in the streets. Support the show Get in the Flock!

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.
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 downplay a rumor he didn't believe was worth following up on at the time. Another story that we don't have a clear picture of is what happened leading up to the arrest warrant being issued for the new Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar. The story from the initial report was that Dunbar was involved in a robbery, but not long after the reports had changed and stories from witnesses had evolved to Dunbar having left the scene before the robbery took place. We also discuss team news like Geno Smith coming back to the Seahawks and a pair of veteran running backs the Seahawks have reportedly discussed contracts with. One listener says he'll be done with the NFL if games are played this fall without fans, and we talk about how the games could be broadcast to make it less weird. In the second half of the show, we discuss the Rams new uniforms as well as a new rule that would take the place of the onside kick. A member of the flock points to how many of the Seahawks moves stem from some of the issues Seattle struggled with in their game against the Packers. We also look back at a listener who took issue with the discussion coming out of the draft show a few weeks back. Finally, we note areas where Russell Wilson and the Seahawks have been disrespected in the Do Better segment this week. Better at life honors go out to a Browns fan on YouTube and to Will Ferrell for one of his comments going after a current member of the Seahawks tight end group. Support the show Get in the Flock!

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 the show this year as well and so we mash up the format of his usual show with the schedule release and have a little offseason fun.  Support the show Get in the Flock!

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, there didn't seem to be as much there for Britt. After we talk about the player departures, we go pick by pick through the latest additions starting with the team's newest linebacker Jordyn Brooks. Every year the Seahawks release some of the best calls to their draft picks to let them know they're being selected and this year's winning call went to their seventh round pick Stephen Sullivan. Every year of the draft we have to decode what the team was taking into consideration as to why they approached the draft the way that they did. We go through some of the biggest factors, and also look at the players the team has taken to try and decide if it's a clue for the future direction of the team and we get to try and project the type of impact the player will have. Adam says the player he's most intrigued by is WR Freddie Swain and Brandan likes OG Damien Lewis. In the second half of the show we talk about moves from the division rivals as San Francisco was able to trade for Trent Williams to fill in behind Joe Staley. The move made frat boy Sean McVay want to pound beers. Adam talks about how he's tired of news writers not following the rules of journalism. We hear your suggestions of the terrifying movie villains combined into one and better at life honors go out to Justin Britt and the people who made the 2020 NFL Draft come together.

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 only a year ago and they were able to select him in the fourth round. The Seahawks added running back Deejay Dallas as players of his build were becoming more scarce in the draft. Seattle doubled up on edge rushers by taking Alton Robinson in the fifth round and closed out their day with two wide receivers: Freddie Swain of Florida and Stephen Sullivan of LSU. We close out the show talking about what it could mean for the roster and the flexibility it offers them to make moves if they find themselves in a situation where they can add an impact free agent going into the NFL season.  Post 'Go Hawks' in the comments for the latest Tiny Pieces of Seahawks Stuff (TPoSS) Giveaway Support the show Get in the Flock!

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 projected to go in the top 50. Although the Seahawks have been stocking up on guard this offseason, he immediately jumps into the competition for a starting spot.
