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.

The Seattle Seahawks stayed put on the first day of the draft and selected Texas Tech linebacker Jordyn Brooks. Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog comes back on the show to react to the pick. With so many needs on the team, it's difficult for fans to accept that the Seahawks have now used their top draft asset as the biggest needs for the team remain the biggest needs. 
We've got Rob Staton back on the podcast for one last show before the draft. Prior to the show, we listened in to the press conference with Pete Carroll and John Schneider and discuss some of our takeaways regarding the ongoing situation with Jadeveon Clowney, the state of the Seahawks pass rush, and how the focus on the offensive line in free agency. Considering the lack of immediate contributors at the defensive end spot, it may be better for the Seahawks to look toward the defensive interior or consider weapons for Russell Wilson either at receiver or at running back. Rob talks about how Jonathan Taylor can't help but talk about the Seahawks even when he's asked about other NFL teams. At the Seahawks Draft Blog, there's a draft board that is loaded with potential Seahawks draft picks that Rob believes should be on Pete and John's radar when it comes to the different rounds. Sure, there may be some surprises, but if you study up on that list, it's likely you'll become familiar with players who Seattle ultimately selects this Thursday through Saturday. If you want to join in booing the NFL Commissioner, @elloMK is pulling together a group of 100 Seahawks fans on Twitter and may still have some spots available.

This show starts off by recapping the Seahawks news from the past two weeks, including the sad news of former Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson passing away this week. In free agency news, Seattle continues to add to the offensive line by bringing back Mike Iupati. What does this mean for the team in terms of how they approach the 2020 draft and which players are going to be competing for which positions? With the draft beginning next week, we discuss the similarities and differences from previous drafts. Even though there are some glaring needs on defense, the team could continue to look for weapons to surround Russell Wilson with early on in the draft. With the offseason being very different this year, it could also change the way teams may want to think about their rookie players going into next season. The Seahawks recently posted a video on the tight ends position room where Greg Olsen was introduced to the current group of Seattle tight ends. To say that he'll bring a higher level of maturity to the group is an understatement and we have the clips as evidence. We also clue Luke Willson into why a grizzly bear would obviously win a fight with a gorilla. Adam has ranked the 2020 class of quarterbacks and has decided that only two rise to the level of providing a team with a quarterback who gives a team a legitimate shot at the playoffs. In the second half of the show we dive into some clips from the Mysterious Universe podcast that explores some of the origins of Pete Carroll's coaching philosophy. If you want to check out their full podcast, you can tune in around the 1:12:25 mark of their show. We also discuss a listener email that talks about just how lucky the team would be to find a pass rusher who can provide an immediate impact late in the first round or into the second round of the draft. Closing out the show, we talk about an Air Force program that combines two of the most terrifying terms to come from sci-fi films into a single program that should sound alarm bells for anyone familiar with the Terminator and Star Trek series. Kam Chancellor is snubbed from a list of All-Decade team snubs. A politician in Washington State has decided to give up politics to serve the public in another way and science and medicine tells us all why it was better for humanity that the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl this year.

Times are tough for some of the 2020 NFL Draft prospects. Particularly those prospects who would have been able to shine in front of NFL scouts at the various team Pro Days across the country. While there are quite a few players to feel sympathy for, there is a subset of players for which Rob Staton has no sympathy. Rob talks about a few players who had an opportunity to compete at the NFL Combine and chose not to ultimately missed out on what ended up being their last chance to display their athleticism. One Seahawks free agent has been significantly impacted by his inability to meet with teams and get looked over by medical staff is Jadeveon Clowney. Considering the Seahawks biggest need has been to add to the defensive line, they've done little to add high impact talent to a group that finished at the bottom of the NFL in so many categories. Is Clowney, the coronavirus, or the Seahawks to blame for this? Getting back into Seahawks prospects, we take a look at players who can rush the passer as we learn who underwhelmed Rob is when considering several options Seattle has throughout the draft. While the options at pass rush may be limited at the end of the first round, finding a player on the offensive line may be more promising. We discuss Rob's latest mock draft and his thoughts on some of the biggest names. Closing out the show, we explore a position that is relatively low when you consider positions of need for Seattle. But the Seahawks always seem to find a way to surprise us when it comes to the draft. When it comes down to the kind of players Rob wants, there's a certain type of mentality he feels is missing and would like to see Seattle address through the draft.
