The Carolina Panthers went into their bye week at 4-2 after Kyle Allen helped to lead the team on a four-game winning streak. Coming out of the bye, the Panthers have now lost six of seven games and fired their long-time coach Ron Rivera. Brian Beversluis joins the Field Gulls Podcast to talk about how it was time for the Panthers to move on particularly with the philosophy of the new owner, David Tepper. In the offseason, the team got smaller on the defensive line and that has come as a benefit in terms of rushing the quarterback, however it has reduced the Panthers to one of the worse defenses against the run this season. Brian says that mistakes from the quarterback and the inability to stop the run are a couple of the reasons that allowed a team like Washington to get back into the game.

As the Seahawks running game was looking to be even more dominant, the injury of Rashaad Penny will have an impact on Seattle down the stretch. The biggest impact being the lack of depth if Chris Carson has to miss time for any reason. The Seahawks are favored in Sunday's matchup with the Panthers, but there are some matchup issues for Seattle to be concerned with. Anthony Nachreiner mentions how the talks of re-seeding the playoffs have seemed to quiet down now that the 49ers are back in the top spot and Seattle as the 5th seed. That could change if the Seahawks are able to win out. Plus, we get into the latest controversy with the New England Patriots and how if you're a team with a history of spying, you have to do everything to avoid looking like you're still trying to gain an advantage.

In a game where the Seahawks lost and were never really in the game can make it tough to come up with some positive notes from the game against the Rams. Even though we're starting with a look at the negative aspects of the game, there are a few moments that stood out in the game. The biggest takeaway is that Tyler Lockett appears to be on the mend and it's something Seattle is going to need down the stretch. Also, in a game where the Seahawks didn't see a lot of pass rush, it was Shaquem Griffin who was able to get in the face of Jared Goff that led to the pick six by Quandre Diggs. He continues to provide some impact plays even when he's coming into the game and playing a limited number of snaps.

The Seattle Seahawks gave up 21 first half points to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday and went into the half with only three points on offense. Two Quandre Diggs interceptions in the Rams first two possessions of the third quarter and a blocked field goal attempt by Rasheem Green on the third were the kind of plays the team needed to help the Seahawks offense get opportunities they needed to get back into the game. Unfortunately, the Seahawks weren't able to capitalize with the defense holding the Rams to 28 points. It was the lowest scoring game for the Rams offense since the Pete Carroll first faced off against Sean McVay in Week 5 of the 2017 season.

The Los Angeles Rams playoff hopes are still alive, in part due to the Seattle Seahawks Week 12 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. After the Rams win over the Cardinals, Sean McVay now has his team in position to jump up to the sixth seed if the Rams can pull off a victory and the Vikings fall to the Lions. Definitely not the preferable outcome for coach Pete Carroll as he has a chance to get his 100th regular season win. It could be a memorable one, too, considering the Rams move to Inglewood next season could make this his last game coaching in the Los Angeles Coliseum. Bear Mader of Locked on Rams joins the show to discuss how the struggles for the Rams this season has been due, in part, to injuries on the offensive line. Jared Goff hasn't looked the same and part of that may be due to McVay admitting that he hasn't used Todd Gurley enough this season. When McVay was asked why he was using Gurley more, he said it was due to, "Me not being an idiot." With that renewed focus, the team blew out the Arizona Cardinals last week 34-7.

The Seattle Seahawks 37-30 win over the Minnesota Vikings was a game that had it all. Another beautiful victory to get Seattle to the top of the NFC West standings, tons of offense, some booming defense and a baby Yoda all over Twitter. Quandre Diggs took the soul of a Vikings player now known as Irv the Tirv, Duane Brown ignites the linemen for pancakes movement and George Fant going in motion has all fans wondering at what point this team is going to be dialing up a pass for the guy. A lot of great contributions from the flock in the final segment. After the game, be sure and tag @clintonbon or @SeaHawkersPod and use #3i3o.

The Seattle Seahawks continue their Monday Night Football dominance throughout their franchise history and are now 10-2 and in first place in the NFC West. With the 37-30 win, they also continue their perfect record in December in prime time under Pete Carroll. Alistair Corp of Field Gulls joins the show to talk about the pair of Seahawks running backs who helped lead Seattle to victory and into second place in the NFC playoff picture. Chris Carson carried 23 times and had one catch for a total of 109 yards and a touchdown, while Rashaad Penny combined for 15 carries and four catches for 107 yards and two scores. Russell Wilson delivered two passes for touchdowns on the night, one to Penny and one as a 60-yard deep ball to David Moore. Looking ahead to next weekend's matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers means that Seattle could get help in one of two ways. A Saints win could help Seattle in securing an NFC West title or a win by the 49ers could help either team toward earning the top seed in the NFC. If both teams keep winning, that could lead to a Week 17 game that could mean the difference between home field advantage throughout the playoffs vs a fifth seed and starting the playoffs on the road.

With the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the Seahawks now have a chance to take the lead in the NFC West with a win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night. Brandan takes a look at the 49ers upcoming opponents as they have another tough road game next week against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. There was some big injury news on Sunday as Adam Thielen was downgraded from questionable on Saturday's injury report to reportedly being out for Monday's game against the Seahawks. Brandan goes through this week's injuries before getting into comments from Pete Carroll's press conference on Saturday where he gives some thoughts on the limitations of the 46-man roster on gameday as well as updates on the recovery of Ethan Pocic.

In a matchup of two of the top teams in the NFC, the Seattle Seahawks face off against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football. The Vikings are 3-3 on the road this season and are 2-3 coming off the bye week under head coach Mike Zimmer. Ted Glover of the Daily Norsemen joins the show to talk about the key to stopping a Vikings offense that has seen a lot of success this year, especially since their Week 4 loss to the Chicago Bears. Two things that have helped the Vikings offense improve since Seattle saw them last season. First, Dalvin Cook has been tremendous in the run game and catching passes out of the backfield. Secondly, Kirk Cousins has done very well to limit turnovers. With the Vikings allowing just 18.6 points per game, good for sixth in the NFL, the game could come down to how well Russell Wilson will be able to perform inside the red zone against Minnesota's defense.

A Happy Thanksgiving Day episode as we raise our glasses and toast the 9-2 Seahawks after they pick up their sixth straight win on the road for the 2019 season. With the win, Clinton Bonner and Brandan Schulze start with an "IN" as the two talk key in on one player in particular that had a big day in both stopping the run and disrupting Carson Wentz in the passing game. But there were also players and moments in this game that allowed the Philadelphia Eagles team to stay in this game when Russell Wilson could have been leading the offense on drives to put the game away early. As always, we talk about the good and we talk about the bad, in a balanced recap of the past week's game.

The Seahawks picked up a 17-9 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, but struggles on offense allowed the Eagles to hang in the game until the fourth quarter. Who would Seahawks fans be blaming if Philadelphia pulled off a victory over Seattle? One player they didn't need to lean on in this game was Tyler Lockett, as he even saw a reduction in his workload by passing on special teams duties to some of the younger players. Brandan provides a look at where Lockett ranks among the franchise leaders. Looking ahead to the matchup with the Vikings, we talk about the one player that has big potential to make the Seahawks struggle on Sunday. Finally, we get into our Week 13 picks.

With the 17-9 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, the Seattle Seahawks are now 6-0 on the road and match their franchise best road win total from 2013. They'll have a chance to beat that record with two more road games left on the schedule against the Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers. Joining the podcast to talk about the Seahawks victory is Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog. Seattle seemed determined to allow the Eagles to stay in this game until Rashaad Penny broke off a 58-yard run to put the Seahawks up 17-3 in the fourth quarter. That came after one of the most exciting plays on defense led into one of the most frustrating series by the offense in this game.  We talk about how this game impacts Russell Wilson's MVP chances especially considering the narrative being promoted on ESPN ahead of the Monday Night Football game against the Rams.

The Seattle Seahawks are 5-0 on the road this season and have an opportunity to tie their franchise win total on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have only five wins on the season, but they did beat the Green Bay Packers on Lambeau Field and jumped out to a 10-0 lead against the New England Patriots last Sunday. On the other hand, the Eagles were dominated by the Vikings and Cowboys and up until recently were the only team the Atlanta Falcons were able to get a win against. So are the 2019 Eagles a good team or are they a bad team? Michael Kist of Bleeding Green Nation joins the Field Gulls Podcast to talk about some of the things frustrating Eagles fans to this point in the season. Even with the frustrations, the final five games on the schedule have the potential to set the Eagles up for a run to the NFC East title. Could this week's game be a potential playoff preview and might this be one of the last opportunities for the Eagles to show that they have what it takes to be a playoff team? One of the concerns with the Eagles this season is how Carson Wentz has a lack of deep receiving threats with DeSean Jackson sidelined after having surgery for a core muscle. As Kist puts it, the Eagles have a vertical quarterback who is now forced to play in a horizontal offense.

November 20, 2019
The Seahawks were on a bye week this past week and hopefully it allowed some Seattle fans a needed break from having to reach for the heartburn or anxiety medication on gameday. There are many things that stand out as great and not-so-great from the 2019 season to this point. Russell Wilson's quest for his first MVP or All-Pro nod has been a highlight along with the breakout rookie season of D.K. Metcalf and the emergence of Tyler Lockett to fill in behind the departure of Doug Baldwin. Negative aspects of the season to this point has been the lack of pass rush and the inability to protect the football. But we are here on this show to go a bit deeper or focus on some of the areas that may be getting overlooked. It turns out that when the Seahawks are on a bye, we start with a "thigh."

The Seattle Seahawks remain in second place in the division despite the Arizona Cardinals looking as though they might be able to pull off a victory in Santa Clara on Sunday. The Cardinals were up 16-0 early on in the game, bounced back from 17 unanswered points by the 49ers, and even held a lead late into the fourth quarter after scoring 10 points in the second half. San Francisco came away with the victory and so did the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football. The Bears kept it close, but the Rams were able to stay within a couple games of the Seahawks and picked up a 17-10 win. The Seahawks next opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles, dropped a game at home to the New England Patriots. After a look at Sunday's action, it's a look back at Pete Carroll's bye week press conference. Carroll talked about why he thinks the pass rush was successful against San Francisco, and what he thought about Shaquem Griffin getting some snaps late in the game to go after the quarterback. Coach provided his thoughts on Quandre Diggs who played the entire game at free safety after coming over from the Detroit Lions. How will that impact rookie Marquise Blair going forward? One of Pete Carroll's main rules for the team is that he is "all about the ball," and when several plays demonstrated the team's lack of ball security, he says it's something he's going to focus on even more in the coming weeks.

The Seahawks have won in overtime now in back-to-back weeks as Seattle moves to 5-0 on the road this season for the first time in franchise history. There were big swings in this game both caused by the defense on both sides of the football. The first one came on a fumble recovery for a touchdown by Jadeveon Clowney. The second one was a double fumble by Russell Wilson and Germaine Ifedi that allowed the 49ers to get back into the game when Seattle was up by double digits. Anthony and Brandan take a look at the NFC and where the Seahawks stand among the other teams and make their picks for Week 11 of the NFL season. Learn more about your ad choices.

Eighty percent of the time, this show kicks off starting with an IN every time. In previous weeks, Jadeveon Clowney has been going stag to the pass rush party, but this week he brought multiple plus ones. Shaquill Griffin continues to hit the IN side of the ledger and does so while doing his best impersonation of volleyball legend Karch Kiraly. And while Lockett, Metcalf and Hollister have been Russell Wilson's favorite go-to targets as of late, it was a pair of receivers, "The Other Guys," as they're now dubbed who showed up in some of the biggest third down moments of the game. So who hit the OUT side of the ledger? Joey Hunt getting trucked by a 49ers defensive lineman? Germaine Ifedi going for a terrible Jerome Bettis impersonation? What about the Seattle defense dropping as many interceptable passes as the Seahawks offense put on the ground? Tune in and listen to some of the best and worst moments from the Seahawks biggest win of 2019.

Russell Wilson has played in some wild games in his career and this is feeling like a wild season as Seahawks fans experienced a roller coaster of emotions on Monday night. Mookie Alexander joined me on the podcast this week to talk about the ups and downs as the Seahawks went 3-and-out for their only two drives of the first quarter. The Seattle offense failed to score in the first half, instead it was Jadeveon Clowney posting the biggest game of his Seahawks career and took a turnover into the end zone for his second touchdown on the season. A fumble on an incredible effort by D.K. Metcalf to try and score a touchdown at the end of the half allowed the San Francisco 49ers to maintain their lead at halftime. Two turnovers by San Francisco helped allow the Seahawks offense to score 14 unanswered points and look like they might be able to coast to a double digit victory in the fourth quarter. But, as Mookie reminds us much like in the game against the Steelers, it was a fumble that allowed their opponent to get back in the game. After the 49ers were within three, the two teams traded field goals to send the game into overtime. The roller coaster continued into the extra minutes of the game as Wilson led Seattle into the red zone before throwing his second interception of the season. After a missed field goal in overtime by the 49ers, the third drive by the Seahawks was the charm and Jason Myers was able to connect on the winning field goal as time expired.

It's gameday and the Seahawks and 49ers both have some long injury reports going into the Monday night football game. Four of the five Seahawks starting offensive lineman are listed with injuries going into the game against San Francisco. But the only two players who are listed as questionable for Seattle aren't in the starting lineup. The 49ers though have a couple key players listed as doubtful with their kicker potentially out tonight as well as their Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle. Brandan also takes a look at some of the numbers that each team's quarterbacks have been putting up to this point of the season. On defense, the 49ers have been extremely dominant, but this will be the first time they face off against a dominant quarterback like Russell Wilson who has put up MVP numbers even while under pressure.

On Monday, the Seattle Seahawks face the San Francisco 49ers for the first time this season. Seattle is 2-0 in the NFC West with wins over the Arizona Cardinals and the Los Angeles Rams and their only losses this season have been at home versus two of the NFL's top teams. To preview the prime time matchup on Monday, former 49ers cornerback Eric Davis joins the Field Gulls podcast. In response to former teammate Jerry Rice predicting a Super Bowl victory for the 49ers this year, Davis offers his thoughts on picking a Super Bowl winner at the midpoint of the season. He talks about what made Pete Carroll one of his favorite coaches of his career and what he's seen out of his former defensive teammate Ken Norton Jr as defensive coordinator this season. On his Wednesday episode of the Bleav in 49ers podcast, Davis picked Russell Wilson as his NFL MVP at the midpoint of the season. He talks about the progress he's seen from Wilson over his career and who Russell has to worry about when it comes to the San Francisco 49ers defense on Monday night.

Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf combined for more than 275 yards through the air against the Bucs on Sunday. To find a better day for a pair of Seahawks wide receivers, you have to go back to the 1987 strike season when Steve Largent lit up a defense full of players who were third-string talent by NFL standards. With the defense struggling this season, Russell Wilson will need to continue his MVP-level play from the first half of the season against a tough second-half schedule. Brandan and Anthony talk about the challenge ahead with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night and give their Week 10 picks. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

With the Seahawks 40-34 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle now moves to 7-2 going into Week 10. In this show, Clinton Bonner takes a look at three of the best and worst under the radar moments of the game as Mychal Kendricks is recognized for some early plays that helped lead to the first punt by the Bucs. But, on the other side of the ledger, the guy that Kendricks usually comes off the field for had a big missed tackle and had a rough day on defense. Tune into the show to get Clinton's take on his favorite D.K. Metcalf moment and a play by a tight end that led to a key score. Because we take the good with the bad, two of the Seahawks top defensive players are called out for negative plays that ultimately led to touchdowns by Tampa. Learn more about your ad choices.

If you tuned into last week's preview of Sunday's game against the Bucs, you probably heard Anthony Nachreiner give us an idea of exactly what to expect from his Tampa team. The game played out nearly how he anticipated. Tampa Bay got out to an early lead, Seattle got back into the game, and it was a timely turnover by the Bucs offense (and somewhat of a fluke) that allowed Seattle to pull ahead. However, the Seahawks left plenty of points on the field by settling for a field goal after the turnover and watching two field goals and an extra point fail to go through the uprights. The rough day by kicker Jason Myers was ultimately overshadowed by another MVP performance by Russell Wilson and big days for both Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf.

The New England Patriots released Josh Gordon after recently placing him on injured reserve. All coach Bill Belichick has to say about it is that they released him "because he was healthy." He goes into even less detail when asked to describe Gordon's time in New England. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was on the podium Friday after the Seahawks made the move and responds to questions about the acquisition. Seattle now has eight receivers on the roster, but one could be gone on Saturday to make room for tight end Ed Dickson. The episode closes with a look at the injury report for the Seahawks and Bucs.

The 6-2 Seattle Seahawks take on a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that has been a statistically top rushing defense this year, but is among the worst in the league when defending against the pass. Anthony Nachreiner of 600 AM KGEZ joins Brandan Schulze to preview Sunday's matchup. Anthonys says that with the Bucs' blitz heavy defense, it could mean a big day from Russell Wilson if he's able to take advantage of that secondary like other teams already have this season. Chris Carson could have a rough day if Seattle decides to run into the strength of Tampa's defense led by former Washington Huskies defensive lineman Vita Vea. On the offensive side of the football for the Bucs, Jameis Winston has a lot of talent on the outside at receiver as well as some underutilized talent at tight end. However, Winston has been a turnover machine as the Bucs have been averaging three turnovers a game over their five losses this season. Can Winston be patient and take what the Seahawks defense gives him, or will he try and make big plays into tight windows down the field? With the Bucs 2-5 record as an indicator, Anthony expects mistakes late in the game will provide Seattle with an opportunity to move to 7-2 on the year. Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks make only one move leading up to the trade deadline and it leads to a quiet Tuesday trade deadline. The Dolphins of all teams were the ones who traded for the biggest name, Aqib Talib, as the move helps open up some cap space for the L.A. Rams. The Seahawks move center Justin Britt to injured reserve this week and Brandan talks about what that means for Seattle.

At 6-2, the Seattle Seahawks are halfway there (in terms of a potential postseason berth) and living on a prayer. Clinton Bonner and Brandan Schulze take a look at the 27-20 victory over the Falcons and talk about the best moments that you may have gotten overlooked as well as some of the things that helped contribute to the second half comeback by the Falcons. Clinton kicks things off by giving respect to one player in particular that he has been critical of in previous weeks, but after a game like the one he had, Rashaad Penny gets the first IN. Check out this week's show to find out why Jadeveon Clowney, despite a performance where he was in the backfield for a lot of the game, wound up with the final OUT of the day.

The Seahawks jumped out to a 24-0 halftime lead thanks to an interception by linebacker Mychal Kendricks and three red zone trips that resulted in touchdowns. Russell Wilson was perfect on his targets to Tyler Lockett as that connection counted for more than half of Wilson's yards through the air. However, the Seahawks defense allowed the Falcons and backup quarterback Matt Schaub to put up 20 points in the second half and 460 yards through the air. Kenneth Arthur joins the podcast this week to talk about the Seahawks 27-20 victory as they go to 6-2 on the season. Since 2012, the Seahawks are now 54-0 when leading by four or more at the half. Seahawks fans may have expected a larger margin of victory after a big first half, but their lead never faced a serious challenge. With just over three minutes left to go in the game, the Falcons went for a two-point conversion that would have made it a one possession game for Atlanta. Bobby Wagner, who became the franchise leader in tackles for the Seahawks, was there to break up the pass and help seal the victory.

The Atlanta Falcons are on the ropes this season at 1-6 and have multiple starting players on both offense and defense who are questionable for Sunday's game. Matt Ryan, who is second only to Phillip Rivers for consecutive NFL starts, could miss his first game after 154 straight starts. If he can't go, Matt Schaub would take over the starting role for Atlanta. Schaub has only started six games since the 2013 game with the Seahawks, when Richard Sherman's interception helped Seattle tie the game against the Texans and ultimately win in overtime. Schaub's record is 1-5 as a starter since that game, winning a Week 12 game for the Baltimore Ravens in Cleveland 33-27. David Walker of the Falcoholic says that the pressure has been mounting over the previous weeks calling for the team to move on from former Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. Walker predicted that the team could make the move with their bye week in Week 9 if the Falcons go into the break at 1-7. It could be that Seattle ends up being the team who both launches Quinn's head coaching career only to take it away.

Starting off with a quick look at the Seahawks injury report from Wednesday, Russell Wilson was listed for the first time this season with a knee injury. He remained a full participant in practice. As D.J. Fluker and Duane Brown get back to practicing, George Fant becomes a limited participant in practice with a shoulder injury. Brandan joins Anthony Nachreiner on 600 KGEZ to talk about the Quandre Diggs trade and how it could signal a shift who is starting at free safety moving forward. Looking back at the Ravens game, we talk about the Russell Wilson pass intercepted for a touchdown and the Seahawks loss as well as looking forward to the Week 8 matchup with the Falcons. We close out the show with our Week 8 picks.

Historically, offensive lineman don't get a lot of love when it comes to the positive side of the 3 IN, 3 OUT ledger. This week, not only does Justin Britt get an IN, he inspires us all to create a unique musical playlist. With the 30-16 loss, it means for just the second time this season, 3 IN, 3 OUT starts with a loss and if you want to focus on one play in particular it was Tedric Thompson getting beat down the field for a long pass that set up an early score for the Ravens. In the from the flock segment, one suggestion about covering the clink leads to a discussion over what color tarp the team should use and who should be assigned to make sure the rain water doesn't collect in the center.

The Seattle Seahawks added to their defensive back group after making a trade with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday. To help Seahawks fans understand why the Lions made the move, Chris Perfett of the Pride of Detroit podcast joins the show to talk about how this move signals some big questions about the Detroit Lions who have played well through seven weeks despite their losing record. Quandre Diggs is now set to be a part of the Seahawks through 2021 after signing a 3 year, $18 million contract extension with the Lions just over a year ago. Diggs primarily has been playing strong safety for the Lions, but has flexibility to play at multiple positions in the secondary. Now entering his second season as a full-time starter for the Lions, Diggs was the one who gave Sam Darnold his "welcome to the NFL" moment last season, picking off Darnold's first NFL pass and returning it for a touchdown. Diggs has six interceptions in his five-year career. Chris explains during the interview that what makes this trade a steal for the Seahawks is that they're getting a player far beyond the caliber of most 5th round draft picks and he's under contract for the remainder of 2019 as well as the next two seasons.

The Seattle Seahawks are now 5-2 after a 30-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, and the 14-point difference was due to two offensive turnovers that the Ravens defense returned for scores. But does that fully explain the issues this Seahawks team has been showing through the first seven weeks of the season? Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog joins Brandan Schulze to recap the Week 7 loss and the areas where Seattle is struggling most. Tied up at 13 at the half, the Ravens challenged Seattle to throw the ball coming out of halftime and it turned out to be a coaching move that helped to limit the Seahawks offense to only 3 points in the second half. The Seahawks finished the day just 1 for 3 in the red zone. Rob and Brandan talk about the other shortcomings of the team as the linebacker group continues to come up short of expectations. Rob suggests that the Seahawks may want to find another player on offense with Will Dissly out. The Seahawks haven’t been trusting their run game in short yardage situations and it might be why they are accepting the risk of long field goals over fourth down attempts in short yardage situations.  Looking ahead at the schedule, Seattle now faces two NFC South teams that have combined for three wins. It gives the Seahawks a chance to bounce back before taking on the toughest part of their schedule against the 49ers, Eagles, Vikings and Rams in the following weeks.  Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

With Earl Thomas is coming back to Seattle for the first time, there were a lot of moments in the press conferences this week where the players were asked about the former Seahawks All-Pro safety. Before focusing on some of those responses, this episodes looks at the injury report for both the Seahawks and Ravens. Getting into some of the press conferences this week, Bobby Wagner was asked about the reception he expects fans to offer Earl Thomas in his return to Seattle, Pete Carroll was asked about his feelings about Earl and if anything changed after getting the finger when Thomas was carted off the field, and Russell Wilson and Shaquill Griffin talk about some of their favorite memories of the former Seahawks safety.

The Seattle Seahawks return home after a third straight road win to face Earl Thomas and the Baltimore Ravens. Jake Louque of the Baltimore Beatdown Podcast joins me to preview Sunday's matchup. It's a matchup that turns what most people have previously considered the strengths of these two teams completely on its head. The Seahawks enter Week 7 as Football Outsiders top ranked passing offense and third in the NFL for offensive DVOA. The Ravens offense is right behind the Seahawks in DVOA and rank first in the NFL in total yards averaging 450 yards per game and second in average points with 30.7. The former strengths of these two teams have turned into relatively average defenses. Each team barely has double digit sacks (Seattle with 10, Baltimore has 11) and both are in the bottom half of the league in points allowed per game (Seahawks are 20th with 24.3 and Ravens are 17th with 23.3). The key is going to be stopping Lamar Jackson, who became the first player to ever win both air and ground player of the week honors in a single season, and Louque says that the key is rattling Jackson early and taking away his deeper options throwing down field.  Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Going into the season, Seahawks fans all had expectations of how certain position groups would perform. After six weeks of football, there is a solid base of performance and metrics on which to base our opinions. Adam Nathan of the Pedestrian Podcast joins Brandan Schulze to do a schoolyard pick of the position groups on offense (QB, RB, TE, WR and offensive line), the areas of defense (DL, LB, DB), and special teams. It should be no surprise that the quarterback group is taken off the board first considering Russell Wilson getting attention as the league's leading MVP candidate through six weeks. Tune in to hear the order of picks, the rationale behind the decisions, and which personnel group is the last one picked.

The Seahawks are coming off a 32-28 victory over the Browns, but the victory didn't come without some concern as the Browns were able to put up three touchdowns early on in the game. The loss of Will Dissly means that Russell Wilson has lost one of his favorite receiving targets. Could O.J. Howard of the Bucs be on the trade block? As a Bucs fan, Anthony thinks a 2nd round pick or a 3rd with additional picks could help make the deal happen. With Earl Thomas coming back to town, we talk about what the potential reaction could be and what kind of game we can expect between these two teams.

Many of these topics have been covered coming out of the game: the defense struggling to put pressure on Baker Mayfield, Russell Wilson's ability to lead the Seahawks back from big deficits, or Chris Carson continuing to play with his dominant, physical style. Clinton Bonner and Brandan Schulze team up to talk about four particular plays and two themes that may be under the radar coming out of the 32-28 victory. The guys start out by talking about one play by the Seahawks that might be getting more press because of the celebration, rather than the pass by Wilson and the hit that he had to take when delivering the ball to Jaron Brown. As Seattle improves to 5-1 on the season, please use this episode responsibly if deciding to turn it into a drinking game.

The Seahawks face some adversity on the road, giving up three straight touchdowns to start the game and are able to come back from a 20-6 deficit to win 32-28. Christopher Kidd of the Seahawks Man 2 Man podcast joined me to talk about the victory and the resume that Russell Wilson continues to put up for his MVP campaign. It even has one of Wilson's previous detractors Pete Prisco jumping on the hype train after the win, Pete Carroll talked about how turnovers come in bunches sometimes and it was a forced fumble by Ziggy Ansah, and interceptions my Tre Flowers, KJ Wright and Tedric Thompson. Thompson now has an interception in back-to-back games. Baker Mayfield was complaining about some missed calls by the referees after the game, but while the Browns were able to drive the field against the Seahawks defense, it was those turnovers in critical moments that helped propel Seattle to victory.

With both Duane Brown and D.J. Fluker listed as doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Cleveland Browns, the Seahawks offensive line depth is going to be tested in Sunday's game. A key piece of that depth, Ethan Pocic, was just moved on injured reserve and guard Jordan Roos was called up from the practice squad to take his place. Another roster move may offer a glimpse into what the Seahawks may have to do on Sunday as tight end Jacob Hollister is brought up to the 53-man roster. George Fant, who has played primarily at tight end this season, could take Brown's spot at left tackle which would allow Jamarco Jones to continue playing right guard after filling in for Fluker last week. Understandably, Pete Carroll didn't want to give away exactly how they might approach those spots heading into the game, but we do get to hear from him on goals for Russell Wilson's improvement this season. We also hear him talk about the importance of getting pressure on the quarterback in this week's matchup.

The Seahawks have an opportunity to reach some tie some franchise marks with a win on Sunday over the Cleveland Browns. Win a win, they could go to 5-1 on the season and match a couple of the best starts in franchise history going back to 2003 and 2013. They haven't started 3-0 on the road since 1980 - back when Jim Zorn was quarterback. And Zorn's name comes up a lot in this episode, because today's guest is Jim Harold, host of the Paranormal Podcast and long-time Browns fan. Jim reminds of the days when the Seahawks had the Browns number, even at the start of Seattle's franchise. They hold a 12-6 overall record now, but the last few matchups in Cleveland have not worked out as well as Seahawks fans would hope.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM |RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation:GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks are coming off a Week 5 victory, 30-29 win over the Rams at CenturyLink Field, and the first thing Anthony pointed toward in this game was the missed field goal by the Rams. Seattle had a chance to put the game away before the miss, but the Rams certainly had a chance to win the game in the end. Will Dissly continues to be a top target for Russell Wilson and Jadeveon Clowney seems to be trending upward. Could this week against the Browns be an opportunity for him to have a big game, especially considering what we saw Nick Bosa do to the Browns offensive line on Monday. The guys close out the show by making their selections for the Week 6 games.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Every week, this episode of the podcast is dedicated to finding some of the smaller, less talked about moments from the previous game that deserve discussion. But there are some plays that are so monumental they can't be ignored. That's why Clinton Bonner starts off this week's 3 IN, 3 OUT by talking about the "Rainbow Connection." Two players in the trenches get the spotlight in the second IN. And speaking of connections, how did Vanessa Williams have the foresight to sing about Al Woods back when her song was topping the charts in 1991? Because it was such a big win over our division Rivals, Clinton throws in a bonus IN for a military veteran honored during the game and a moment that many of us didn't see who watched on TV.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Head Coach Pete Carroll was on the podium on Friday following the 30-29 victory over the division rival Los Angeles Rams. Carroll was asked about Russell Wilson's increcible performance and was also asked about how it compared to Wilson's historic stretch run back in 2015. Pete evaluated the defenses performance and how the Rams were perhaps more dedicated with playing two tight ends throughout the game more than Carroll had anticipated. Jamarco Jones had a standout performance filling in at right guard for D.J. Fluker. Will Dissly continues to impress on offense with 88 yards on the night. Coach Carroll said Jadeveon Clowney had a solid performance and was very close to having an incredible night. Of course he was part of a big fumble by Todd Gurley as the Rams were driving and in position to score. Pete also addressed the thinking behind settling for the field goal on fourth down near the end of the first half.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

It was a rollercoaster of emotions for Seahawks fans in this game watching the Rams get out to the early lead following a Jaron Brown fumble on the first possession. Later in the quarter, Russell Wilson connects with Tyler Lockett on an incredible play to put the Seahawks in the lead despite to early scoring drives by Los Angeles. Then it was back to the lows after Seattle chooses to play conservative and settle for a long field goal on 4th and 1. A miss by Jason Myers is followed by two touchdown scoring drives by the Rams and the two teams spend time trading scores in the second half. After Chris Carson bobbles a fourth down catch in the end zone for the go ahead score, it looks like Seattle had the game in the bag after an incredible interception by Tedric Thompson. Unable to get a first down, they give the ball back to the Rams who drive down and get in position for a game winning 44-yard field goal.

With four touchdowns in the first four games and five end zone targets, Will Dissly is becoming one of Russell Wilson's favorite targets this season along with Tyler Lockett. Chris Carson had his bounce back game against the Cardinals in a 27-10 victory and is also one of Russell's top targets. If Wilson continues to feed Dissly, could he become one of the league's premier tight ends? Anthony provides some of his perspective about the Rams, particularly after the Bucs were able to slow down their top pass rushers in the 55-40 win on Sunday. What does that mean for the Seahawks on Thursday night? Brandan and Anthony preview the Thursday matchup with the Rams and make their picks for the Week 5 set of games.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Los Angeles Rams are coming off a 55-40 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past weekend and now have to travel up to Seattle on a short week while attempting to fix some of the weaknesses of the team exposed by the Bucs. James Kroeger of the Rams Podcast, talks about how falling behind by three touchdowns really took the threat of play action out of the game early on for Jared Goff and he finished the game with multiple turnovers. As a result, he talks about how Rams fans are dividing on the idea of whether it was smart to pay Goff a large contract ahead of the season. But how much of the issue is with Goff and how much should be attributed to the changes to the offensive line in the offseason? Todd Gurley only carried the football as much as the backup running back last week and, on defense, will Marcus Peters be able to bounce back from a bit hit on his pick six at the end of the game?Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks finish up their first quarter of the season by getting their second straight win on the road. Seattle goes to 2-1 on the season after a 27-10 victory over the Cardinals. Of course, when the Seahawks win, Clinton Bonner starts with an IN on this unique look back on the previous game. The first one goes to L.J. Collier for making his first play on the team where fans really take notice. Everyone talks about Chris Carson and overcoming his ball control issues in this game, but this is 3 IN, 3 OUT, so Clinton focuses on one play in the 4th quarter that set the tone for the Seahawks final drive. Finally, Rasheem Green had an impressive open field tackle to sack Kyler Murray and get the last IN.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

With all of the talk about Chris Carson taking care of the football after fumbling in each of his first three games, he played like a man who wanted to absolutely erase any doubts about whether he should lose playing time. Carson touched the ball 26 times for 145 yards in this game and was every bit the physical presence we were used to seeing last season. The Seahawks get the 27-10 victory in Arizona and appeared to come out of the stadium healthy, as that has been an issue in past seasons for the team. Russell Wilson took care of the football and added another touchdown pass to Will Dissly this season. C.J. Prosise ran in for a 9-yard score and Jadeveon Clowney intercepted a Kyler Murray pass to David Johnson to help put the Seahawks up by two scores in the first quarter. NorbCam joins Brandan Schulze to talk about the win as the Seahawks go to 3-1 in September and 2-0 on the road to start the season for the first time since 2013.Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks have been busy this past week with roster moves as Nick Vannett was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a 2020 fifth round draft pick. Rather than bring up Jacob Hollister from the practice squad, Seattle decides to bring back free agent tight end Luke Willson. Adrian Colbert, who was signed to the practice squad was promoted to the active roster and while Gary Jennings looked to be the initial casualty of that move, it ended up being defensive tackle Bryan Mone. Brandan joins Anthony to talk about some of the biggest moments that led to the loss against the Saints and looks ahead to the matchup with Kyler Murray who had a dismal YPA in last week's game against the Panthers. Will they change up how they've been operating early on this season and start to challenge teams downfield as part of their Week 4 matchup with the Seahawks?Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks take their first loss of the season falling to the Saints 33-27, and when the Seahawks lose we get straight to what went wrong for Seattle. There seemed to be some key moments in this game where D.K. Metcalf wasn't on the field. Whether or not it was trying to get Brown, Moore or Turner more involved, outside of one big play to Moore, the trio seemed like more of a liability against New Orleans. Did Flowers have a tough draw on his matchup with Michael Thomas or is he regressing based on what we expected him to build on from last year. After three weeks, that's looking like a question we'll be asking moving forward. Finally, Seattle had multiple fourth and short calls in this game, and Clinton gives the out to the one call that bothered him the most in this game.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS  Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks sent tight end Nick Vannett to the Pittsburgh Steelers late on Tuesday for a 5th round pick in the 2020 draft. Field Gulls contributor Mookie Alexander joins the podcast to react to the trade and talk about his latest article about why he feels the Seahawks can justifiably bench Chris Carson after his latest performance against the Saints. It doesn't just have to do with his problems hanging onto the football, but he has been relatively ineffective through the first three games. During the show, the news broke that Luke Willson is expected to return to the Seahawks, so not only does Seattle add to their 2020 draft, but they pick up a player who understands their offense and understands the importance of Techno Thursdays.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks fall to 2-1 on the season and ruing a perfect September home record by Pete Carroll with a 33-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Ross Bell joins Brandan Schulze to talk about all of the frustrating moments from the game that led to a 27-7 deficit before the Seahawks finally mounted their fourth quarter comeback. Russell Wilson put up big yards through the air, but many of those yards didn't result in points. Seattle's usual bend-but-don't-break brand of defense did lots of breaking this week, and some key penalties led to Saints touchdowns. They also allowed the Saints to score in all three phases of the game, due in part to a rough game by Chris Carson.

The Seattle Seahawks look to continue their 15-0 home record in September under Pete Carroll as the New Orleans Saints come to town for the first time since the Seahawks 23-15 victory in the postseason before facing the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game. This will be the first matchup between the two teams since 2004 without Drew Brees under center for the Saints. Ross Jackson from All Saints Considered and the Locked on Saints podcast joins the show to talk about what Sean Payton has up his sleeve for Sunday's matchup. Also, through the first two games, the New Orleans defensive front has been impressive and that could help the Saints to keep Russell Wilson in check.  Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks win over the Steelers comes with some concerns on offense, particularly if Chris Carson continues to fumble at least once per game. Brandan talks to Anthony about one of Pete Carroll's biggest rules with the team and how breaking that rule could lead to a bigger workload for Rashaad Penny. After two games, it looks like Russell Wilson's favorite targets are going to be Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf and tight end Will Dissly (who is from Montana). Looking ahead to the game against the Saints, we talk about how there is uncertainty over how New Orleans will handle the quarterback position. Also, the strength of the Saints being their defensive line could lead to another close game in Seattle.

The Seahawks are out to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2013 and Russell Wilson earns just the fourth September road win of his career. After being held scoreless in their last two trips to Heinz Field, the Seahawks posted four touchdowns on their way to a 28-26 victory. When Seattle wins, Clinton Bonner starts by sharing in IN. The first one goes to Malik Turner who had three catches in this game and was on the receiving end of a key third down as well as a big gain to help get the Seahawks near midfield prior to the end of the first half. Mychal Kendricks gets credit for spinning off a blocker as well as blowing up the Steelers running back later in the game. Each linebacker had a highlight tackle against the Steelers. Lastly, Brian Schottenheimer deserves credit for making a shift after the Seahawks struggled to protect their quarterback early on in the game.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Learn more about your ad choices.

Another week and another close win as the Seahawks turn what was looking like a comfortable fourth quarter win into a nail biter at the end. A fumbled transition between Russell Wilson and Chris Carson puts the ball on the ground and the Steelers are able to get a quick score to get within two points 28-26. That score would hold as the Seahawks control the ball for the last five and a half minutes of the game thanks to a Carson first down on a fourth and one play.After losing a challenge to a pass interference penalty early in the game, Pete Carroll was able to successfully win an uncalled penalty on Tyler Lockett in the fourth quarter. It was a big day for Locket who had 10 catches for 79 yards. Wilson threw for 300 yards on the day and Pete Carroll was able to get a win on his birthday - the first win for the Seahawks in Pittsburgh since 1999.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Learn more about your ad choices.

This week on the Nach on Sports, Anthony Nachreiner and Brandan Schulze look back to Week 1 and the Seahawks victory over the Bengals as well as the best and worst moments from that game for Seattle. Going into the season it seemed like the Bengals were supposed to be a bad team, but how do we really know if they're a bad team or not? With Antonio Brown going to the Patriots this week there were some reports of the potential that Brown could have been in a Seahawks uniform this season. What can we take from Pete Carroll comments in the press conference this week? Seattle goes on the road for the first time this season and Pittsburgh is their first opponent, but no matter which team Seattle plays in September on the road, it seems as though they tend to struggle. Brandan talks about how the struggle is real with the Seahawks. The guys close out the segment by going through their picks for Week 2.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Learn more about your ad choices.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are opening up their season at home after an embarrassing 33-3 loss in the opening week of the 2019 season. Dave Schofield from the Behind the Steel Curtain Podcast joins the show to let us know what to expect from the Steelers as they try and bounce back. Based on the history of large defeats in recent years, we can expect Mike Tomlin to have his team ready to bounce back, because that's exactly what they've been able to do. However, this is a different year and there are some concerns about the weapons the Steelers have on offense with the offseason departures of Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell. Dave explains what he's most upset about in how Brown was able to work his way to the Patriots after the Steelers declined to trade with New England in the offseason.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks come away with a 21-20 victory against the Bengals, and when the Seahawks win Clinton Bonner starts with an IN. The first of the year goes to Shaquille Griffin for coming up with some big time plays throughout the game as Shaq looks to rebound from his 2018 season. Props to Russell Wilson as he continues to put up efficient numbers while under duress and Al Woods comes up in a big moment in his first regular season game with the team. On the negative side of the ledger, Clinton calls out Cody Barton, Tyler Lockett and the gameplan on offense - any of which could have cost the Seahawks the game.

The Seattle Seahawks keep pace with the rest of the NFC West this week by getting the 21-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals at home to kick off the 2019 season. Ross Bell of the First and Ten podcast joins the show to talk about some of the biggest takeaways from the Week 1 victory. D.K. Metcalf's performance stood out among the Seahawks along with a two touchdown performance by running back Chris Carson. On defense, Jadeveon Clowney had an impact in limited action, but it was Al Woods and Quinton Jefferson who had some of the biggest plays of the game. Where the Seahawks shows their struggles were on the offensive line, perhaps taking on a better than anticipated Bengals defensive line. Tedric Thompson also had a play at the end of the first half that he would like to have back.

With the Seattle Seahawks facing a Week 1 matchup with a very unfamiliar opponent, it's tough to have an idea of what to expect, particularly when that opponent has a brand new head coach. The Cincinnati Bengals are coming to CenturyLink Field on Sunday and Anthony Cosenza from the Orange and Black Insider joins the show to help give us some insight into the Bengals offseason. Zac Taylor, a quarterback coach for the Los Angeles Rams in 2018, has taken over the job. What have been some of his challenges in the offseason that he's had to face?The Bengals top draft pick Jonah Williams will likely miss the season and their top receiver A.J. Green is also sidelined with an injury. Anthony said that even though Williams is a rookie, the impact that loss has on other parts of the team may hurt them more in this game than the Green injury. Brandan and Anthony talk about a little history as the two teams last faced off in a 2015 win that the Bengals came back from a significant deficit in the fourth quarter and leaves Russell Wilson still looking for a win against Cincy. Learn more about your ad choices.

Ahead of the Seahawks week 1 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals, Brandan joins the Nach on Sports to talk about the Jadeveon Clowney trade and how it impacts the Seahawks chances this season. Previewing the matchup with the Bengals, Brandan looks toward Seattle's ability to stop the run, especially with injuries on the Bengals line and the injury to A.J. Green. It was something the team struggled with last season, but was a big focus for the offseason. In the second half of the interview, we talk about the Antonio Brown situation in Oakland and make our picks for all of the week 1 games.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Seattle Seahawks released their first official depth chart after announcing the 53-man roster and making a few changes in the days after the initial roster cuts. One of the biggest surprises was seeing D.K. Metcalf listed among the starters considering his limited action in the preseason. Not necessarily surprising was that Tyler Lockett is still the starter at special teams, yet somewhat surprising considering his importance to the team now as the top receiver on the team. In NFC West news, Jared Goff signed a deal to stay in Los Angeles through 2024 with a record amount of guaranteed money. Alistair Corp and Brandan Schulze go through a list of over/under stats for 2019. Will Russell Wilson top 4000 yards to help make his case for an MVP season with the Seahawks? Can Chris Carson eclipse his total carries from 2018. Can Michael Dickson put more punts inside the 20 yard line in the history of the NFL. It's tough to tell when we don't even know what the record is, but we attempt to make a guess. With Jadeveon Clowney now a member of the Seahawks, Alistair muses on the potential that he could be much better playing in the Seattle than he ever was in the Texans scheme. Lastly, we take a guess on where the team could be in terms of their record around the bye week.Subscribe to the Field Gulls Podcast via:Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify |Overcast | Pocket Casts | Stitcher | Castbox | Subscribe on Android | PlayerFM | RSS Support the show with a recurring monthly donation: GetInTheFlock.com Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seattle Seahawks released their initial 53-man roster on Saturday with the Jadeveon Clowney trade not yet finalized. To make sure the team didn't lose anyone critically important on the roster, they decide to let Geno Smith go initially before adding him back to the roster on Sunday. Rob Staton of seahawksdraftblog.com joins the show to talk about his thoughts on the trade for Clowney and why he thinks this should make General Manager John Schneider a lock for executive of the year (an award he should have won for what the Seahawks were able to do in the 2012 NFL Draft). Rob also notes the striking amount of size on the Seahawks now have on the defensive line, and we discuss a defensive lineman they added to the practice squad who had been mocked to Seattle in the first round of the 2019 draft.

It was a big morning for the Seahawks ahead of the 53-man roster cuts with reports that Jadeveon Clowney is coming to Seattle in a trade for Jacob Martin, Barkevious Mingo and a 2020 3rd round pick. Joe Fann, Seahawks Insider for NBC Sports Northwest, joins the show to talk about the trade with the Houston Texans. We talk about what the position the Texans were in when it looked like a potential trade with the Dolphins wasn't going to happen, the hit rate for the Seahawks when it comes to 3rd round draft picks, and the potential that Clowney could end up being a one-year rental player for the Seahawks. The only downside is if Jacob Martin goes on to develop into a solid player and Clowney does leave after this next year and the Seahawks aren't able to capitalize off his efforts. For now, it looks like a huge win for the Seahawks and John Schneider going into the 2019 NFL season.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Brandan joins Anthony Nachreiner on 600 AM KGEZ this week to talk about why the Seahawks should be interested in trading for Jadeveon Clowney, the exciting part about this part of the preseason, and how Russell Wilson looked in the latest game against the Chargers. C.J. Prosise hopefully showed enough to turn himself into a guy who the Texans might be interested in trading for. We close out the show hat to expect in some of the position battles ahead of the 53-man roster cuts and talk about Andrew Luck's decision to retire and why it's not shocking that fans were upset to learn about the news the way they did.

This Saturday at 1pm PT is the deadline for the Seahawks to have their roster cut down from 90 players to 53. Alistair Corp joins the show to talk about his latest roster projection going into the final preseason game against the Oakland Raiders. We start out on offense and discuss whether or not C.J. Prosise deserves to remain on the roster and whether or not the team will carry a fullback into Week 1. Wide receiver has questions regarding who will be the fifth and maybe sixth spot in that group and there are questions of who to keep at tight end. Fortunately there aren't any difficult decisions when it comes to the three special teams players.After the break we take a look at the defensive side of the ball and the many questions on the defensive line. Could they decide to only carry three interior defenders so the team can carry upwards of six defensive ends to help provide depth with so many injuries going into the first week of the season. Linebacker provides the greatest amount of depth, which means that it will be tough to keep Austin Calitro, Shaquem Griffin and rookie linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven. Alistair thinks that despite a strong preseason, DeShawn Shead may not be able to hold a spot on the roster considering the amount of depth and young talent competing at safety with McDougald, Thompson, Blair and Amadi all appearing to be locks to make the final 53-man roster.Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seahawks defeat the Los Angeles Chargers in week 3 of the preseason and Russell Wilson looked good once again behind a strong offensive line. Rob Staton of Seahawks Draft Blog joins Brandan to talk about the game and how mcuh has changed to now have the line seemingly as a strength of the team (2:52). In a bit of a frustrating development, C.J. Prosise looked great on his carries (6:09), and it makes you wonder how things would have changed in recent years with a healthy Prosise at running back.Tyler locked at John Ursua both had big gains in the game (8:40), Rob talks about the suddenness that Ursua has demonstrated in limited time and how we should expect to see him on the 53-man roster. Who else gets kept at that position (10:23), particularly with Gary Jennings and Jazz Ferguson not showing much? While the offense appears to be the strength of the team, Rob has some positive notes with regard to the Seahawks defense (17:40).After the break, Rob and Brandan talk about the news of Andrew Luck's retirement (24:22) and reflect back on the Seahawks 2012 Draft class (27:05). Rob wonders how the Seahawks would be perceived now had they selected Russell Wilson at 15 overall in 2012? (28:50).Over on the Seahawks Draft Blog, Rob has a recent post on the college football players to watch in 2019 (34:33) and how he lists Jordan Love among Top 3 QBs to watch in college this season (38:25). We look at an early mock draft to discuss a Michigan State pass rusher that is linked to the Seahawks (40:09).Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

This week's Seahawks interview with Brandan and Anthony Nachreiner on the Nach on Sports starts by setting the record straight when it comes to preseason wins and preseason losses. The guys talk about the shift in how the offensive line is seemingly a strength of the Seahawks offense and the secondary might be one of the biggest concerns, which is the complete opposite of what we were talking about three to five years ago. We spotlight performances by Poona Ford and DeShawn Shead on defense for the Seahawks against the Vikings and Brandan talks about what he wants to see from the Seahawks in the upcoming game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Can they hold a historically dominant preseason quarterback in Phillip Rivers to minimal yards and touchdown? How will the Seahawks offense respond if they're put in that kind of position in the preseason. Whatever happens it will be the last big opportunity to see the top starters until Week 1 of the regular season against the Bengals.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

In the second game of the preseason, the Seahawks pick up their first loss against the Vikings, 25-19. Matty Brown joins Brandan to recap the loss and talk about the biggest takeaways as Seahawks fans had the opportunity to see Russell Wilson on the field against an opposing team for the first time since his record contract. While his time on the field only resulted in a field goal in his two drives, the offense moved the ball well and the game helped to answer a few questions we had going into the preseason. On offense, Lockett stands out as the top receiver and Jaron Brown looks locked into the next spot. David Moore and D.K. Metcalf likely fill out the top four spots. Brandan and Matty talk about why Jazz Furguson isn't likely to get one of those spots, particularly after his performance against the Vikings. Ugo Amadi provided us with one of the biggest highlights from the game on special teams and Poona Ford stood out on defense against the Vikings starting offensive line. Matty talks about his latest article breaking down the play that led to an interception by DeShawn Shead, who provided the only Seahawks touchdown of the game. He also discusses an upcoming article that will focus on what we can expect from opposing offenses in how they'll attack a defense that no longer has Earl Thomas. With Tedric Thompson the presumed Week 1 starter, can he show some of the ball hawking abilities he showed in college?Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Each week I have a chance to go on a local radio show in Montana called the Nach on Sports. This week, Anthony and I talk about Paxton Lynch's performance against the Broncos and why we still need to see another strong performance before we want to think of him as a potential backup for Russell Wilson. We talk about the running back depth being a disappointment against the Broncos and whether the pass rush or secondary is more of a concern as the Seahawks continue through the preseason and into the regular season.Learn more about your ad choices.

Rob Staton joins Brandan to talk about the game, what stood out, and what we're looking forward to seeing in the next game against the Vikings.With the Seahawks getting their first win of the preseason out of the way in Week 1 against the Broncos, we don't have to worry about another 0-4 start before the regular season this year. Sure we all know that doesn't matter, just as penalties and replay reviews in the preseason penalties don't matter, but we all manage to get worked up -- because football is BACK!One of the reasons why the Seahawks were able to get the 22-14 win was because of their depth this year. When we watched the team in 2018, they struggled to hold teams and put points up on the board late in games. That wasn't the case against the Broncos as Paxton Lynch had a solid game against his former team, even bowling over third stringers to get into the end zone for a touchdown. Let's see how he does against the Vikings second string defense before we start to get excited about his potential as a backup for Russell Wilson.Learn more about your ad choices.

Fluker brought his big personality to the podium and admitted that he was too big to play football with the younger kids and he was so big that he had a hard time finding shoes. Pete Carroll talked about Bobby Wagner's absence from practice due to a special kind of treatment he's getting. He also said that Tyler Lockett is the guy he's looking to for taking over the role vacated by Doug Baldwin.

The green team (the backups) beat the blue team (the starters) 23-20 during the mock game in Bothel, Wash. Although, it sounds like it took from Pete Carroll late in the practice to make it interesting considering the starters were up 20-3 before the green team mounted their comeback effort. Coach Carroll addressed some of the things they worked through as part of their 8th day of open training camp as well as his reaction to some of the biggest moments. Russell Wilson took to the podium to talk about his trip to his grandfather's funeral and to say what he liked from two of his top targets on the day: Jacob Hollister and Keenan Reynolds.Learn more about your ad choices.

Plus, DeShawn Shead is back from the team after signing for the veteran minimum to return to Seattle.

When training camp kicked off on Thursday, Jarran Reed was one of two Seahawks players who spoke to reporters after practice and Reed took the opportunity to speak to the media and address his upcoming six game suspension. Earlier in the week, he was suspended for violating the league's personal conduct policy. In this episode we summarize the details from an article by Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune that details a police report regarding a 2017 incident. Reed said that while he doesn't agree with the NFL's decision, he will respect the decision and tell his teammates to learn from his experience. He says he doesn't think this incident will impact his ability to stay with the team long term. Reed will be allowed to practice with the team and play in the preseason, and will then sit out for the first six regular season games.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Seahawks had the top rushing attack in the NFL last season. With that in mind, one of the questions that people, particularly in the fantasy football world, seem to be struggling with right now is which Seahawks running back should be drafted first? To those who watch Seahawks football, Chris Carson seems like the obvious answer after becoming the first 1,000-yard rusher since Marshawn Lynch. But Rashaad Penny seems to be getting a lot of hype to take over that top role this year. Also, who now becomes the third down back now that Mike Davis is gone? A vast majority of passes went to Davis in 2018. Both Carson and Penny had a similar number in terms of yard per attempt when catching the ball. Carson also feels like the best choice here, and if that happens, does that mean Penny could see majority of carries in early downs? Who else makes the team at running back beyond the two obvious choices? We did into all these questions and more on this episode.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Last season the Seahawks defensive line dropped to 26th in the NFL in terms of pass rush productivity, as measured by Pro Football Focus. Considering they were 1st and 3rd in their two Super Bowl seasons, it seems to measure up to how we felt about the defensive line in those seasons. Considering they lost Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Sheldon Richardson after the 2017 season, a drop was expected, but to get back to a top unit on the defensive line they're going to need to see improvements. While it's tough to project an improvement with the loss of Frank Clark, there are a number of players on the roster who have finished in the top 100 in terms of pass rush productivity in past seasons. We talk about the players who need to maintain their past efforts, return to previous form or develop as young talent to get the Seahawks back among the top defensive lines in the NFL.Learn more about your ad choices.

Leading into the 2019 Seahawks season there are questions for at every position groups. One of the most intriguing questions is who will take over for Doug Baldwin as Russell Wilson's favorite target. The easy answer is Tyler Lockett, especially after his season last year. He hit double digits in terms of his touchdown numbers, but never felt like the same type of red zone threat that Baldwin proved to be so good at and there also wasn't a clear favorite for going to on third down. Who fills that gap in 2019 and which one of the rookies have the highest expectations to produce early on? Clinton Bonner joins Brandan Schulze to break down all of the questions we have at wide receiver and tight end going into the upcoming season.Learn more about your ad choices.

Former Field Gulls contributor now with the Athletic, Sam Gold joins the podcast this week to talk about his 22-minute film breakdown between Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson. Comparing areas like accuracy, arm strength, vision, pocket awareness and more, Wilson edged out Luck in the overall analysis, which seems to have a lot of Colts fans fuming. Gold does say that Colts fans who have actually watched the video all the way through believe that his analysis on Lucks strengths and weaknesses is fair however. In the video, Gold is critical of Wilson's vision on the field as well as his pocket awareness, but his elite ranking in terms of his accuracy is really what put Wilson in a strong position ahead of Luck, even before considering Luck's injury history.

The third week of OTAs has concluded and this week cornerback Shaquille Griffin took to the podium to talk about about how his mindset and his diet have changed since the end of last year. He also talks about some of the changes his twin brother Shaquem has made in the offseason after his rookie year and his potential new role with the team mirroring what he did in college as a pass rusher.  With Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor all having moved on from the team, Griffin sees himself as the player to pass along a lot of the knowledge he picked up from his former teammates. Especially with Bradley McDougald out with a knee injury, he sees a leadership role for himself along the group of young defensive backs. Griffin has also had the opportunity to go up against rookie D.K. Metcalf in 7-on-7 drills during OTAs.

Wright took to the podium to offer his thoughts about being back in Seattle for his 9th season with Seattle, what it's like being the longest tenured Seahawks player and how he feels about being among only three players left from the 2013 squad that won the Super Bowl. Because he ended up hitting the free agent market, Wright talked about how he didn't expect to come back for 2019 and thought he'd be wearing a different color uniform. Now that Russell Wilson is under contract, the main focus of the offseason appears to be how Bobby Wagner is due for a new deal now that he's going into the final year of his contract. K.J. was asked whether he has any advice for Wagner going into his negotiations, as well as how Wagner's participation in OTAs is viewed by other players in the locker room. Ultimately, Wright feels as though Bobby will certainly get a deal done this offseason.The Seahawks picked up two new linebackers through the draft and Wright offers his perspective on just how well they're picking up on the transition from college to the pros. He also talks about some of his offseason plans for humanitarian work in Africa as well as a new podcast he's doing with former Seahawks linebacker Mike Morgan.Learn more about your ad choices.

With the Seahawks in need of a veteran pass rushing presence after the departure of Frank Clark, the Seahawks turn to one of their favorite places the last couple seasons - the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Ziggy Ansah was the fifth pick overall that season and is coming off a year where he was franchise tagged by the Detroit Lions. Unfortunately injuries sidelined him for much of the season, and as Jeremy Reisman of Pride of Detroit explains, it was a common theme for Ansah over the past three seasons. But if Ansah can return to his Pro Bowl form in 2015, it could remind Seahawks fans of another outstanding pass rusher that they were able to pull away from the Lions ahead of Seattle's Super Bowl season.Learn more about your ad choices.

The Seattle Seahawks 2019 Draft class has been finalized and the team comes away with 11 draft picks after having only four selections a week ago. John Schneider made a record number of trades and even traded up on a couple occasions including a move up into the second round to pick up a wide receiver who was initially expected to be one of the first off the board in the entire draft.Rob Staton and Brandan Schulze run through the selections from the Seahawks draft and talk about what will be one of the biggest criticisms of the draft and how the team may have a plan for addressing additional needs along the defensive line. Rob talks about how Seattle could even consider going after Jadeveon Clowney, with the rumors that the Houston Texans may have been looking to get into a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.A report came out during the draft that Doug Baldwin may have played his last snap in the NFL and is considering retirement. Rob talks about how that could have played a role in the Seahawks grabbing two receivers with their first five picks. The slide down the draft board for D.K. Metcalf was a long one and when the Seahawks selected him at the end of round two, the emotion came out in his phone call with Schneider and Pete Carroll. Tune in to hear discussions around each one of the Seahawks selections: L.J. Collier, Marquise Blair, D.K. Metcalf, Cody Barton, Gary Jennings, Phil Haynes, Ugo Amadi, Ben Burr-Kirven, Travis Homer, Memarcus Christmas and (announced live as we were recording the podcast) John Ursua.Learn more about your ad choices.

Just a week ago, the Seattle Seahawks only had four picks going into the 2019 NFL Draft. With the trade of Frank Clark to Kansas City and two trades down from the 21st pick overall and the 30th pick in the first round, Seattle now has a total of nine picks and their first round selection was TCU defensive end L.J. Collier. Collier is a player who had been previously discussed on the show, particularly because the Seahawks seemed to show so much interest in the pass rusher for the Horned Frogs. They had scouts at the Senior Bowl, they met with Collier at the combine, Seattle was on hand for the TCU Pro Day and the team invited him to the VMAC for a Top 30 visit.On the show, Rob Staton and Brandan Schulze go over the moves Seattle made in the first round and talk about the type of player they are getting with Collier. Rob says, "Be happy about this pick! L.J. Collier: great prospect, well worth a late first round pick, great choice by the Seahawks."He compares Collier's pressure percentage stats in 2018 to a couple picks who went ahead of him like Brian Burns and Montez Sweat, but says Collier comes without some of the main concerns that allowed those two players two drop out of the top 10.Brian Baldinger recently broke down some of Collier's tape on Twitter. "You ain't doing your homework on Collier, you're lazy. You're looking at stupid, underwear stats in Indianapolis. This guy's a football player.Where do the Seahawks go next? The guys look at some of the options at the top of the second round and look ahead to the fourth round at some of the positions they could now consider as the team holds four picks in the fourth round and two more picks in the fifth round.Learn more about your ad choices.

The Kansas City Chiefs trade for the Seattle Seahawks former 2015 second-round draft pick Frank Clark, sending the 29th overall pick to Seattle along with a second round selection in 2020. In addition, the Seahawks swap picks with the Chiefs in the third round this year. Clark gets a big contract as part of the deal. Adam Emmert and Brandan Schulze react to the deal that gives Clark more than $63 million guaranteed and $105 million over 5 years.Considering the amount of money that Clark received from Kansas City and the compensation the Seahawks get, it's tough to be upset about the move. It makes a lot of sense for Seattle considering they were set to go into Thursday's draft with just four picks, plus they have Bobby Wagner and Jarran Reed on deck for contracts. Clark also had some interesting comments on the way out the door that he shared with ESPN's Josina Anderson. Adam and Brandan talk about how money equates respect in the NFL and how Clark appears to feel disrespected that the Seahawks weren't willing to pay him this amount to stay in Seattle.Learn more about your ad choices.
