George Fant is worth getting your hopes up for — again

For the Seahawks to improve on their 9-7 record next season, they’ll likely have to get better internally. In fact, it is probably in part due to their cap restraints that the team even felt compelled to fire both their offensive and defensive coordinators, because the real change needed is an improvement of what they’ve got rather than trying out new players to execute the same game plans.

Seattle is currently looking at $14 million in cap space per OverTheCap.com, and perhaps $26...

Tight end free agents that fit best for the Seahawks

It isn’t exactly news the Seahawks aren’t likely to bring Jimmy Graham back for 2018. Let’s look at the best free agent targets at tight end.

The Seahawks settled for fewer field goals in 2017

Despite memorable misses that yanked away several wins, Seattle’s execution at the end of drives wasn’t as poor as you might believe Fair or not, I’m guessing many Seattle Seahawks fans will remember 2017 as the year of the missed kick. And there’s some accuracy to that: Blair Walsh missed eight field goal attempts on the season (21-29), more than any Seattle kicker has since Josh Brown went 22-30 in 2003. (Brown also missed seven kicks in just 25 tries in 2005, so you see how a...

Seahawks G Luke Joeckel’s contract was signed for the market rate

In the build up to free agency last offseason, many fans of the Seattle Seahawks were desperate for the team to pursue offensive linemen in order to better protect Russell Wilson.

Should the Seattle Seahawks trade down or completely out of first round of NFL Draft?

The 2018 NFL Draft may be the most important draft over the past few seasons for the Seattle Seahawks. Coming off a disappointing 9-7 record and missing the playoffs during 2017, a lot of changes are expected to the 2018 squad. Some of the changes have already begun, with Pete Carroll re-tooling his coaching staff by firing eight assistant coaches from last season.

After Kirk Cousins signs, the 4 highest paid QBs will have a combined 0-4 playoff record

We hear it all the time. “The NFL is a business.” Let’s not overlook the fact that it is a weird business.

When the San Francisco 49ers signed Jimmy Garoppolo to a $137.5 million contract, they made him the highest-paid player in NFL history despite just seven career starts. This is not an indictment of the 49ers for the deal because we know the realities of the league in 2018, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting that in this industry you can get paid more than your much...
