It looks like some changes are coming to the Seattle Seahawks coaching staff, courtesy of college football.

Assistant quarterbacks coach Steve Shimko is reportedly headed to the college ranks to coach the Boston College tight ends.

Don’t forget about Tyler Lockett’s awesome 2019

We have talked a lot about DK Metcalf this season, and justifiably so. The Seattle Seahawks rookie had a great rookie year and figures to be an important part of the offense for years to come, but let’s not forget about what Tyler Lockett accomplished in 2019.

I had some doubts about Lockett a couple of years back. He was one of my Seahawks who had the most to prove entering the 2018 season, and I don’t think I was necessarily wrong in my assessment....

Travis Homer displayed all the traits of a quality passing down back

In the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Seahawks added to their deep stable of running backs when they selected Travis Homer. Homer was headed to Seattle after a three-year stint at the University of Miami, where he totaled 1,995 yards and 37 touchdowns on the ground.

Though the Seahawks had just seen Mike Davis sign with the Bears in free agency, it was a curious selection. Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic were already...

Seahawks likely to start 2020 regular season with two road games

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

I wish we could be previewing the trilogy between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers this week, but instead we are forced to look towards next season. Oh well, such is life.

We know the Seahawks’ 2020 regular season opponents, but we won’t know the actual schedule until sometime in mid-April. Thanks to the already released schedules of the Seattle Mariners and defending MLS champion Seattle Sounders FC, we can piece together some info that will...

All-22 Season Review: DK Metcalf is on the path to stardom

Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images

Both before and after he was drafted, DK Metcalf was an easy target for criticism. He seemingly checked all the boxes of criticism a prospect is crushed for: Workout warrior, unbalanced athletic profile, freshly injured, product of the air raid offense. All of those criticisms, in some respect, were reasonable. However, Metcalf also proved to be a tremendous example of how important a player’s mental makeup and football intelligence is. It was...

A look at how Phil Haynes performed in the postseason

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday the Seattle Seahawks fell to the Green Bay Packers 28-23 in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, ending their season and kicking off what will certainly be a long and interesting offseason for the team. The Hawks will have a lot of questions to address and holes to fill during the offseason, but during the loss to Green Bay the team at least got a glimpse at one of the players who could play a key role on the offensive line in the coming years....

Of course, barely two hours after his piece was published, Tom Pelissero provided an update on the status of Hawks defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson, who suffered a broken foot in the playoff loss against the Green...

Pass-rushers wanted: Seahawks enter offseason needing more pressure

Getting a pass-rush boost, be it through re-signing their personnel or making moves, is task No. 1 for the Seahawks over the next few months.

The Seattle Seahawks ended their 2019 campaign with a significant number of injuries to a significant amount of offensive players. It was obvious that the Seahawks felt the injuries, as Russell Wilson’s rotational third target never came through and the run game sputtered to a halt.

Danny O’Neil of 710AM Seattle put up a poll on January 13, with three options for the cause of the Seahawks’ abrupt ending. The results show...

Seahawks sign 6 members of the practice squad to future contracts

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Now that the Seahawks’ season is over, the 53-man roster has ballooned back up to 90, with players on the injured reserve reverting to the roster and the practice squad no more. Seattle is able to sign players to future contracts and will do so over the next couple months until the new league year begins.

The first order of business with future contracts is generally those who were on the practice squad, and the Seahawks did just that on Tuesday....

All-22 Musings: Shaquill and Shaquem Griffin combine for a sack

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Despite their attempt at a late comeback, the Seahawks came up short at Lambeau Field, falling out of the playoffs after a 28-23 defeat. Seattle began slowly, as they have all too often, and were unable to overcome Davante Adams and a Packers offense that attacked the Seahawks in a similar fashion to the 49ers and Rams.

Despite Seattle’s loss, a trio of defensive stalwarts popped, as well as three dynamic stars on offense who have helped to guide the...

A way-too-early look at the Seahawks’ 2020 roster

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that happened.

The season is now over for the Seattle Seahawks, but the effusive Tyler Lockett had some inspiring words in his final words to the media. Lockett took to borrowing a microphone and doing his own interview with D.K. Metcalf and it was as chuckle-worthy as it was filled with optimism for the future.

Isn’t that just the perfect face of a 13-3 2020 season?

Fans are predictably falling anywhere along the spectrum from hope to despair....

Seahawks hope to keep O-line intact

The Seahawks’ entire offensive line could wind up with a face lift in March. With several key linemen headed towards free agency, head coach Pete Carroll says he wants to keep the band together. “I hope we can keep our guys connected here,” Carroll said (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Brady Henderson). “I think the whole group, it could be a really solid group coming back. I’d like to see the guys that have played for us stay with us.” Carroll is aiming for continuity, because the...

The Seattle Seahawks’ season is unfortunately over, and consequently it’s the probable end of Marshawn Lynch’s unexpected but memorable second stint with the team. If it is his swan song, the man got up off the couch and scored four touchdowns in three weeks behind an offensive line that finished the year playing Phil Haynes at left guard and Jordan Roos for a few snaps at center.

In what may be the final press conference of his career, Lynch had some words of advice for young players...

Seahawks’ repeated 1st half woes in the playoffs cost them again

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

You don’t always win the game in the first quarter (see: Texans, Houston), but you can also lose them in the first half.

When the Green Bay Packers took a 21-3 halftime lead against the Seattle Seahawks, it felt like an all too familiar story for fans of this team. Sure enough, the Seahawks waited until the 2nd half to score points and lost a close one.

For whatever reason, the Seahawks been consistently unable to get off to even decent starts in playoff...

Seattle Seahawks fans have become accustomed to the team’s slow starts under Pete Carroll over the years, and it seems that there is no place where that is exemplified better than when the Hawks play on the road in the postseason. There’s no question that Carroll is one of the best in the NFL when it comes to generating buy in among his players and creating unity towards a single goal. However, on the flip side, one of the things he is worst at...
