A few minutes of Dumb Sh*t

Dad and I had a good time doing the “stupid stuff” people say show not too long ago.  The problem is that the national media makes it so easy.  There are a bunch of people out there who write about the Seahawks but aren’t really paying attention to what’s ACTUALLY going on and that has to do with more than what’s going on with Earl.  It is more than Russell Wilson.  There is a team out there that has some potential and NO one is talking about that.  ANYWAY give this a listen let us know what you think.  Like Share Follow.  Check us out on Instagram and Twitter!  All under Seattlehawktalk

Question for those who are actually checking us out…..What would you like to hear about?  Anything you’d like us to go a little deeper on?  Let us know!

 

Moneyball and Russell Wilson

 

If there was ONE podcast that people listened to I would want it to be this one.  It exemplifies all things that I would want our listeners to hear.  Pertinent issues that are not being talked about in the national media yet.  “Xtra points” regarding current play on the team.  A different point of view that provides a level of insight into what is probably going on behind closed doors.

Listen, you may or may not get your panties in a twist after hearing what we have to say.  But right, wrong, or indifferent to the issue, AN ISSUE exists.  We as 12’s aren’t talking about it much yet because it isn’t being talked about in the national conversation yet….but rest assured it will be….soon.  This is why Dad and I started this whole thing to begin with.  We like to chat-chickens for sure but also the national conversation typically revolves around “dem Boys” and “that team in Boston”.  We are not them.  We aren’t the darlings of the league any more and we aren’t coming off a SB victory.  Hell even when we were we didn’t get the press that we deserved.  Dad and I found ourselves talking about something only to hear about it in the national conversation months later.  This is another one of those issues.  Another example would be the Linebacker conversations we’ve had…..read an article on BR the other day that called our Linebacker room the strongest positional group…..Ummmm sure it is, as long as no one gets hurt.  I see the “strongest positional group” as the one that has the highest level of competition and the back-ups are pushing for playing time.  We are strong at CB, WR, RB, OL, DL, and even though it’s a stretch our Safeties…WITHOUT Earl.  But we can talk about that later….

SO listen to this podcast…it’s a little like pulling Santa Clause’s pants down or spitting into his eye but it’s time we love our team for what it is, and don’t keep calling Russell the greatest thing since sliced bread.  Although he’s done some amazing things statistically and even made some pretty amazing plays, I don’t know if there is another QB in the league that has continually put his team in such difficult spots to begin with.

Earl Podcast and some other thoughts….

So as I was looking at the last post I realized I made sure the newest podcast was on the front page player but not included in a blog….so here ya go!

As I continue to stew on this whole situation I can’t help but remember Steve Largent!  Maybe it’s cause Dad is in town and we are waxing poetic about when I was younger and a fan then.  Remember when Seattle was a perennial loser!?  Man as 12’s back then we would have been stoked for 9-7 instead of acting like the world was coming to an end! But back to Steve Largent, he was often critized for not going after more money.  His reply would always be something like, “we signed a contract and I will fulfill my obligation”.  Compare that to, “come get me bro”, or “I’ll be rich and happy somewhere”.  It’s a bit off putting.  I enjoy me some ETIII but “come get me bro”….really!?  I’ll be happy when this whole thing is over so we can get back to the game.  Not contracts, the game.  Where people come to compete and be better than yesterday.

Also as a side note….I don’t think Seattle is going to pay him.  I think if the right trade came they’d jump on it, just like you would jump on a better financial opportunity.  But they aren’t gonna give someone the deal of the century because Earl is being pissy.  Go ahead and pound your fists and cry like a toddler.  At the end of the day it is Earl who will lose out.  The market isn’t amazing for Safeties.  Sure, he will command top of the market, but if he holds out Seattle saves money, maybe spend it elswhere.  If he holds out all year some GM’s and coaches will be turned off and he shrinks the market.  So, good luck Earl.

I’m good.  Let him be a whining toddler.  Just let him be that outside the locker room.  We are trying to compete.  Trying to bring back the magic of a physically dominant, competitive team that doesn’t give up 40-7 games at home.  Because Earl that’s what I will remember.  The veteran leadership was still there last year pal.  Where were you then?  Were you bitching about coaching too much to rally the troops?

Hey I hope you guys enjoy the podcast.  Stand by for more.  Like Share Follow.  Help us get this thing a bit bigger!

Don’t Be a Moron……

This is a saying that I say to myself and others OFTEN.  This is a saying that I find myself saying a lot as you read/hear some of the stupid ass things that some of the “prognosticators” are saying.  I don’t have anything VERY specific today, just the same old, same old lame theories of what Seattle is trying to do.  Or some of my favorites lately are some of the articles that are coming out that DIRECTLY CONTRADICT another article you’ve read somewhere else.  Is anyone paying attention?  I mean come on, how is it possible that Duane Brown is awesome, Ethan Pocic is part of the “best under 25″ team, Britt is a solid all pro, Fluker is a road grader, and Ifedi is on track to be one of the better lineman in the NFL AND STILL HAVE A CRAP OL?!!!!  Yeah I get it that is a run on sentence.  But come on seriously!  How can the individuals be solid and yet the team doesn’t work…..I doubt it….seems a little more coaching philosophy and game strategy to me.  Or how about the continued conversation about how, other than Doug Baldwin our receiving core is terrible?  Really?  Did Russell throw the ball to himself last year?  I mean everyone is sucking his nuts and raving about how amazing he is after last years amazing statistical season…..was no one on the other end of that pass?  I for one couldn’t be more excited about our receiving core.  I love Doug of course and for those of you that are learning or trying to learn the Wide Receiver position watch Doug, watch his routes, watch his blocking, watch what he does off the ball when plays go away from him.  I’m excited about Amarah Darboh is set to make a big step, mark my words.  I continue to be excited to see what Tanner McEvoy will do if given the chance.  I mean let’s just dream you little dreamers for a moment of a set with 6’6″ McEvoy and 6’5” B. Marsh lined up on the same side….Maybe even stick in a Vannett too……HOW WOULD YOU START TO GUARD THAT!?  Jaron Brown has been brought in and could see some good targets.  The point is I love this group.

We could go on like this all day…..point is DON’T BE A MORON.  Check out the athletic profiles of the people that we have.  Don’t just look at the stats, look beyond that and know  Pete is a great developer of talent.

We will have a podcast coming out soon so stay tuned.  As always like share follow!  Sparkling Hawk Flag
