Shaquill Griffin out, Ugo Amadi among those doubtful vs. 49ers

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

While all eyes were on Jamal Adams this week, after Pete Carroll said his return was close, two other key parts of the Seahawks’ secondary look set to miss the crucial clash against the 49ers on Sunday.

Seattle’s final injury report of the week sees starting cornerback Shaquill Griffin declared out with a concussion and a hamstring injury, while Ugo Amadi, Carlos Hyde, and Mike Iupati are doubtful. Adams, meanwhile, is questionable along with Chris Carson,...

Tyler Lockett primed for an encore vs. 49ers

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

One of the NFL’s best rivalries will be renewed on Sunday, as the 49ers head up to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. At 4-3, San Francisco has done an admirable job of maneuvering a long list of injuries, with Kyle Shanahan only furthering the notion he is one of the truly great head coaches in the league.

That being said, it’s Seahawks-49ers—it’s going to get weird.

Jacob Hollister could still be traded before the deadline

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

With the Seahawks in need of a pass rusher but pressed up against the salary cap, there were two names presumed to be on the outside looking in, should the opportunity arise to acquire a player: B.J. Finney and Jacob Hollister. That was proven correct this week, as Seattle packaged Finney and a seventh-round pick to send to the Bengals in exchange for Carlos Dunlap.

While it was Finney and his unwelcome salary sent out this week, what about Hollister and...

Alex Collins headed to Seattle, will be a practice squad option after COVID protocol

Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks’ running back depth has been a question mark all week long, with Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde, and Travis Homer yet to practice this week with injuries. With a sudden issue of numbers in the backfield, Seattle could be making a move to add to their depth at the position.

According to ESPN’s Brady Henderson, former Seahawks draft pick Alex Collins will arrive in Seattle today to begin COVID-19 testing protocol. Once he is through testing,...

Nick Vannett and B.J. Finney became Quandre Diggs and Carlos Dunlap

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It was just over a year ago when Seahawks GM John Schneider was celebrated for a clever bit of business, acquiring safety Quandre Diggs from the Lions. Not only did Diggs make a near-immediate impact on Seattle’s defense, but the trade itself was a massive win for the Seahawks.

That October 2019 deal saw Seattle send a fifth-round pick, previously acquired from the Steelers in exchange for tight end Nick Vannett, and in return they received Diggs and a...

Jamal Adams doesn’t practice despite expectation he would on a limited basis

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Pete Carroll’s Wednesday press conference brought about more good news, after the Seahawks acquired Carlos Dunlap earlier in the day. Per Carroll, superstar safety Jamal Adams was set to return to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday.

About that.

Seattle’s initial injury report for Week 8, issued after Wednesday’s practice, listed Adams as a non-participant. In addition to a groin injury, which has kept Adams out since Week 3, he was also listed with...

Will Dissly might be about to make a big jump

Billy Hardiman-USA TODAY Sports

By receiving a pass in Week 7, Will Dissly has now made it further into an NFL season than he ever has before.

The fourth-round tight end for the Seattle Seahawks previously had two scorching starts in 2018 and 2019 before suffering season-ending injuries. This time, behind an expensive Greg Olsen, Seattle has been content to ease Dissly back in slowly, splitting time.

But after Dissly’s performance on Sunday - especially with what could have been -...

The Seattle Seahawks are soon to have reinforcements along the line of scrimmage, on both sides of the ball. Pete Carroll told reporters on Wednesday that two players currently on injured reserve, defensive end Rasheem Green and guard Phil Haynes, would return to practice this week. Both players were designated as returning to practice on the league’s transaction wire on Wednesday.

All-22 Musings: Tyler Lockett scorches the Cardinals

Billy Hardiman-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time this season, the inevitability of the Seahawks and Russell Wilson was not proven to be true. Both a regulation lead and possession in overtime were lost as the Cardinals furthered Seattle’s desert nightmares, as Arizona prevailed to drop the Seahawks to 5-1 on the season.

Seattle’s first loss of the season will be remembered for uncharacteristic mistakes from Wilson and that DK Metcalf play. However, we were also treated to an...

Seahawks get pass rush help, acquire Carlos Dunlap

There you have it.

With a toothless pass rush and little signs of internal improvement, the Seattle Seahawks have made a move for help from the outside. On Wednesday, the Seahawks acquired disgruntled pass rusher Carlos Dunlap from the Bengals in exchange for a seventh-round pick and C/G B.J. Finney, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

In praise of overdoing it a little too much

In the golden age of sports journalism, journalist and athlete, journalist and coach, were peers. Not cronies but peers, and while the relationship was not fully antagonistic, opposition, competition, a battle of minds was possible. In 2020, coaches and athletes are rich celebrities and journalists are lucky to have a job. Access is given those willing to play ball. A question which is even a little probing, a little tough, is met with anger and...
