Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Well, another completely dismal performance from the defense. I thought the D-line played better, racking up some sacks, but, man the secondary was porous. I think the Seahawks have decent safeties in Adams and Diggs, but the play they're getting from the corners is pretty bad. Part of this poor pla...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Yes, the defense played better, despite being without their top safety and corner. They managed some pressure from the line and 'backers. They should get stronger on defense with some players coming back from injuries and a couple of new acquisitions. The hope is that Jamal Adams will be back for th...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

A disappointing outcome in last night's game. The Seahawks have won quite a few of these one-score/down to the last second games in the past, and so perhaps it's fitting that they lose one. Despite racking up 588 total yards (normally enough to win just about any game), Russell Wilson had a bad nigh...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Another heart-stopper for the Seahawks. Just lucky to get the win. Once again, the defense was porous. The Vikings out-gained the ‘Hawks 449 to 314 yds. What had been a good Seahawks run defense earlier in the season was gouged for 201 yds. on the ground. Russell Wilson was not quite up to his earli...

That's a thought. I am very surprised that the Seahawks haven't reached out to Clay Matthews for pass-rush help.

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Another win for the Seahawks, making this their first 4-0 start since 2013. Not a superb performance, but a win on the road in the Eastern time zone is tough at best for a West Coast team. The 'Hawks went into this game pretty beat up, with key players missing, particularly in the secondary--Jamal A...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

The Seahawks came out of Sunday's game with some new injuries. Jamal Adams (who's played great) has a groin strain, and Chris Carson suffered a knee strain from the dirty hit he took in the game. Pete Carroll has said that neither of these injuries are really serious--meaning long-term--but could ke...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Seahawks defence has been cursed with injuries since the Legion of Boom was disbanded and just two games into the season, both linebacker Bruce Irvin and safety Marquise Blair both suffered ACL injuries and are expected to miss the rest of the 2020 NFL season. :bang: Yes, that's too bad. The loss o...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

It was nice for the Seahawks to get the win at home, and for another superb game by Russell Wilson, but defensively, they weren't very good; Patriots rack up 464 yards of offence tonight. Again, absolutely no pass rush. If they don't fix that part of their game, they won't have a successful season. ...

Re: 2020-21 NFL/Seattle Seahawks Season Thread

Yes, a nice start for the Seahawks today. The offence looked very solid, and Russell Wilson had a career day with four TD throws, no interceptions, 322 total passing yards, and a QB rating of 143.1. It will be interesting when Phillip Dorsett is back and when Josh Gordon comes off suspension. At tha...

Shutdown of XFL Could Be Permanent

At the time of cancelling the rest of the 2020 season on March 12, the XFL stated that they would be back in 2021. Today's news suggests that this is now unlikely and that the XFL is now gone permanently. https://www.fieldgulls.com/2020/4/10/21216590/xfl-lays-off-employees-suspends-operations-covid-...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

not 20/20 hindsight with me. Trying to save economy up front has now led to bigger hit on economy anyhow. They needed to have the balls to be properly proactive on this, even if ignorance caused many to *beeotch* about it. That other countries like USA are worse does not matter. That's their proble...
