The injured player Pete Carroll most wants back

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks signed guard Mike Iupati to a modest one-year deal in the offseason similar to the one that they gave to D.J. Fluker in 2018, and that contract worked out pretty well for Pete Carroll. While Fluker and Iupati have recent injury concerns and inconsistent play as they work through those issues, the pair clearly give Carroll more confidence than what he’s recently been working with at guard and the head coach seems uneasy about starting...

While you’re missing Jarran Reed, just remember Poona Ford

What a [interior pass] rush. Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Poona Ford was the subject of many an exclamation of astonishment on the internet against the Minnesota Vikings.

First, a friendly reminder:

it boggles the mind that anyone would make any statement based on a preseason performance

Overstated, maybe, but what’s Twitter for anyway? Agreed, the vast majority of preseason statements aren’t going to amount to much more than making...

O’Neil: DeShawn Shead is making the Seahawks and other things we learned

The Seahawks’ offense didn’t score a touchdown in Minnesota but the defense is starting to take shape, which leads off the list of what we learned over the weekend: Three Things We Learned 1. Deshawn Shead is going to be on this team. That was hard to foresee when the Seahawks signed him after training camp began. After all, it had been two years since he played in a regular-season game for the Seahawks. He was also playing safety instead of cornerback, which meant he’d likely have to...

Will Dissly plays in game for first time in almost a year

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

In the very first game of his NFL career, Will Dissly had three catches for 105 yards on five targets against the Chicago Bears. Dissly got five more targets in Week 2, gaining 42 yards and scoring the second touchdown of his career. The Seattle Seahawks lost both of those games, unfortunately, but found a young tight end they were probably comfortable and confident building around.

Dissly tore his patellar tendon in Week 4 and his status for 2019’s Week...

Jaron Brown has perhaps best campaign to start next to Tyler Lockett

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks have been rotating through different receiving options for Russell Wilson over the last few years and no season in awhile has had more uncertainty headed into it than 2019. With Doug Baldwin not a part of the offense for the first time since 2010, Seattle is looking at Tyler Lockett as a number one option and a flurry of competition to grab targets behind him.

And months after D.K. Metcalf became the fan favorite as WR2, it seems more and...

Rookie Report: How Seahawks rookies fared in preseason Week 2

While it seemingly took forever for the Seattle Seahawks to make it through the offseason after the devastating season ending defeat at the hand of the Dallas Cowboys, the preseason, on the other hand, has flown past. In losing the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday the Hawks are now halfway through their preseason schedule, with the final two games rapidly approach. This Saturday Seattle will take on the Los Angeles Chargers before closing out their prep...

Seahawks on tape: DeShawn Shead’s pick-six against the Vikings

Photo by Stephen Maturen/Getty Images

DeShawn Shead got a pick six! Yes, the Seattle Seahawks may have lost Week 2 of the preseason to the Minnesota Vikings (like this matters) with depth looking grim (this does matter), but Shead had an electric 88-yard interception return.

The 30-year-old Shead has made an impressive return to Seattle too. Signed July 27th off the street, his first game back was highlighted by a safety—sacking Drew Lock of the Denver Broncos in the endzone.

Shead’s...

Seahawks rookie WR Metcalf set for knee surgery

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters Sunday night that rookie wide receiver DK Metcalf needs knee surgery, but said there's optimism Metcalf could be ready for the start of the regular season.

Seahawks' D.K. Metcalf needs minor knee surgery

Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver DK Metcalf has dealt with a few injuries during training camp and now has a knee injury that will require surgery. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said after the team’s preseason game Sunday against the Vikings that Metcalf needs surgery. He said that the knee injury occurred a few days ago, but the good news is the team is optimistic that the recovery period will be quick. Metcalf, who has also dealt with an oblique injury, was drafted in the second...

Seahawks rookie WR DK Metcalf will have knee surgery

Weeks after seeing their first-round pick, defensive end L.J. Collier, carted off the practice field with an ankle sprain, the Seahawks have been dealt another injury blow — and potentially two — to their 2019 draft class. Second-round pick DK Metcalf will have knee surgery, head coach Pete Carroll said after Seattle’s 25-19 preseason loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The rookie wide receiver missed the game with what general manager John Schneider called a “sore knee.” “DK’s got...

Pete Carroll confirms D.K. Metcalf needs knee surgery

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The hits keep coming to what has looked like a very impressive 2019 draft class for the Seattle Seahawks.

Seattle’s first pick - L.J. Collier. Currently struggling to recover from a training camp “rare sprain.”

Seattle’s second pick - Marquise Blair. Exited Sunday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings with back spasms.

Seattle’s third pick - D.K. Metcalf. Held out from multiple practices, scrimmages, and both preseason games. Now we’re being...

Vikings 25 Seahawks 19: Winners and Losers

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Well that was pretty bad.

Yeah I know it’s preseason, games don’t matter, schemes are vanilla, playcalling bland, yadda yadda, they’re usually supposed to be bad to watch. Outside of the opening quarter, this game was just boring and brutal and then it turned into bad news for Seattle with a trio of fourth quarter injuries.

So let’s get to Winners and Losers for the Seattle Seahawks’ loss to the Minnesota Vikings, and then we start anew on Monday....

Paxton Lynch exits preseason game after huge hit from Holton Hill

Paxton Lynch exited Sunday night’s preseason game between the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings after taking a massive helmet-to-helmet hit from Holton Hill. Lynch decided to tuck and run on a run-pass option play with around four minutes remaining in the game. As he went to slide, Hill came in head-first and nailed him in the helmet. Hill was ejected for the hit, while Lynch left the field for a medical examination. Former Ohio State quarterback JT Barrett entered the game in...

Vikings 25 Seahawks 19: At least the game is over!

Ben Ludeman-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks’ first road game of the 2019 NFL preseason was not particularly impressive, as the offense failed to get into the end zone and the defense repeatedly couldn’t get third down stops. It was a 25-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in a game that was reasonably good to watch in the first quarter and nosedived into something truly awful, even by preseason standards.

Both first-team(ish) offenses drove into enemy territory, only to stall out...

Takeaways from Sunday’s preseason NFL action

Sunday’s slate of preseason NFL action consisted of just two games. It started with the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Chargers doing battle in Southern California. Neither future Hall of Fame starting quarterback suited up in that game. Instead, backups Teddy Bridgewater and Tyrod Taylor struggled big time. The evening matchup pitted the Seattle Seahawks against the Minnesota Vikings in the Twin Cities. That game saw both Russell Wilson and Kirk Cousins play well in limited action....

Seahawks star rookie D.K. Metcalf a late scratch with 'leg soreness' for Sunday's game

NFL fans hoping to get a glimpse of Seattle Seahawks star rookie receiver D.K. Metcalf Sunday night will have to wait for another opportunity. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network shared that Metcalf was a surprise scratch for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings due to “leg soreness.” This is a bummer, because this was supposed to be Metcalf’s first chance to shine on the national stage with Russell Wilson tossing him the ball. Last weekend, he only caught one pass, but he busted...
