Seahawks-Lions Preview: 5 Qs, 5 As with Pride of Detroit

Seahawks-Lions Preview: 5 Qs, 5 As with Pride of Detroit

Photo by Stephen Maturen/ The Seattle Seahawks opened the season facing off against a pair of familiar quarterbacks in Russell Wilson and Jimmy Garoppolo. The Week 1 win over Wilson and his new teammates on the Denver Broncos had fans excited for the potential of a Cinderella season. However, a 27-7 drubbing at the hands of the division rival San Francisco 49ers in Week 2 brought things back to reality. Unfortunately, the team followed up that performance against the Niners with a Week 3 showing that did not do much to inspire confidence. The defense was once again...

NFL picks, Week 4: Seahawks, Cardinals, and a trip through Broncos Country

Photo by Steph Chambers/ Week 4 kicks off bright and early for the NFC West, with the Seahawks traveling to Michigan to take on the Detroit Lions. The only other NFC West team with a game on Sunday will be the Arizona Cardinals, who are also making a road trip, although they will end up down south facing the Panthers in the afternoon. For those of us still keeping track (translation: pretty much everybody), Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos will also be making a voyage on Sunday, as they are scheduled to take on the Las Vegas Raiders in the 1:25 PT time slot.

Thursday Night Football prediction and open thread: Dolphins at Bengals

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports The last time Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa took the field against each other, Burrow’s LSU team outlasted Tua’s Alabama team, 46-41. The soon-to-be Heisman trophy winner threw for 393 yards that day; Tua threw for 418. Between them, they had 7 touchdown passes. A few months later, they were the first 2 quarterbacks selected in the 2020 NFL Draft; Burrow went #1 overall; Tagovailoa heard his name called 4 picks later. Their first NFL matchup was supposed to take place during their rookie season with the Miami Dolphins hosting the...

Ken Walker, Quinton Jefferson pop up on Seahawks Thursday injury report

Photo by Jane Gershovich/ The Seattle Seahawks travel to the eastern time zone this weekend for a showdown with the Detroit Lions in the early game slot Sunday. The Lions are extremely beat up coming off a heartbreaking loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, while the Hawks had a relatively clean injury report for Wednesday. However, the Seattle injury report grew on Thursday, with the team adding several players with apparently new injuries, including Quinton Jefferson, Ken Walker and Phil Haynes. #Seahawks practice report for Thursday:...

Field Gulls Podcast: Seahawks vs. Lions game preview

Photo by Steph Chambers/ The Seattle Seahawks start October with back-to-back road games, starting with a 10 AM kickoff against the Detroit Lions. Both teams come in with a 1-2 record, although if you were to compared the two sides the Lions have looked like a team with a lot more upside even in the short-term. Detroit pushed the Philadelphia Eagles to the brink, and really should’ve beaten the Minnesota Vikings but some poor coaching decisions and bad defense undid a 24-14 lead on the road. Field Gulls’ lead podcast host Dan Viens and Pride of Detroit’s Chris...

Tre Brown still ‘two or three weeks away’ from returning, says Pete Carroll

Photo by Abbie Parr/ Second-year Seattle Seahawks cornerback Tre Brown has been on the reserve/PUP list as he continues to recover from a torn patella tendon suffered back in November of his rookie season. It’ll take a bit more time for him to make his return to the active roster. Pete Carroll provided media with an update on the former Oklahoma star on Wednesday.

Seahawks Film Review: Four of the worst defensive plays from the Falcons game

Seahawks Film Review: Four of the worst defensive plays from the Falcons game

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports The Seattle Seahawks defense looked bad Sunday. They allowed 386 total yards against an Atlanta Falcons offense that has some well above average playmakers, but it is not an offense that keeps defensive coordinators up at night. Despite holding the Denver Broncos to only 16 points Week 1, this defense is an area of major concern. They are allowing 4.9 yards per carry, which is tied for the 9th worst mark in the league whilst being tied for the second most rushing yards allowed per game at 157 yards. The pass defense has been equally bad as...

Seahawks have much lighter injury report than Lions following Wednesday practice

Photo by Steph Chambers/ It’s Wednesday, which means it’s the first practice for the Seattle Seahawks’ Sunday showdown at the Detroit Lions. While the Seahawks did take a hit to its running back depth chart and special teams following Travis Homer’s move to injured reserve, the injury news is otherwise very light. Marquise Goodwin and Joey Blount were limited practice participants, with Goodwin dealing with a knee injury and Blount still recovering from a hamstring issue that has sidelined him from playing. The “Did Not Practice” list consists of Gabe...

The guy the Seahawks should never have let leave: D.J. Reed

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports D.J. Reed was that good. The biggest offseason miss from the Seattle Seahawks appears to have been letting the New York Jets sign standout corner Reed for a very respectable price tag. After three games in New York, he’s been incredible. Man if Zach Wilson can figure it out at QB the Jets could be special with how much talent they have.

ESPN Analytics: Tyler Lockett is really good

Photo by Jane Gershovich/ In the three starts that Geno Smith made for the Seattle Seahawks in 2021, there was often a lack of quarterback-wide receiver connection between him and Tyler Lockett. Lockett had a huge game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with Smith at quarterback (12 catches for 142 yards), but in the other two games he had just four total catches for 47 yards across ten targets against the Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans Saints. It was DK Metcalf (among others) seeing more of the targets over that short time span. This year has been a different story...

Seahawks move Travis Homer to IR, promote practice squad CB to roster

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports The Seattle Seahawks entered the season without many questions at the running back position, with a nice combination of both experience and potential. With the expectation that Rashaad Penny and Ken Walker III would split duties as part of a potent one-two punch, while Travis Homer dutifully fills the role of third down and two minute back and DeeJay Dallas provides depth and special teams contributions. Of course, that was before Walker suffered a hernia in the preseason that needed to be surgically repaired, slowing the process of him...
