  1. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    Interesting, the conditional draft pick must have kicked in if D’Anthony Smith stayed past this week. Hopefully this means Jordan Hill is close, because we are thin again at DT.

  2. WilliamPercival says:

    We really aren’t that “thin” at DT because Bennett plays a significant chunk of time tere in pass rush situations. Getting damn good at it too I might add..

  3. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Bennett is fast becoming one of my favorite Seahawks. It’s hard to explain but he just has a knack or feel for the game.

  4. Back from Seattle – had a great time at both the UW and Hawk games. I’m sure it wasn’t close to the SF game – but the crowd noise is truly unbelievable.

    Not sure if this has been posted but here goes:

    Pro Football Focus says that through three games, Wright has been as good in pass coverage as any other linebacker who plays in a 4-3 scheme.

    According to PFF, Wright is No. 1 among 4-3 linebackers in having allowed just one catch for every 20 snaps in coverage, and only four yards after the catch. The site ranks him No. 3 this week overall among 4-3 outside linebackers in pass coverage.

  5. McDonald came to play Sunday, is much cheaper now, and hopefully Hill is close is what this means. Along with the conditional pick thing.

  6. HawksfromDay1 says:

    That depth chart has 26 on offense and 26 on defense plus 3 special teams. That’s 55. Doesn’t it have to be 53?

  7. So they waived Smith – but he is still on the depth chart?

    There are some guys listed more than once – i.e. Carp is listed at both G positions and JeanPierre is listed multiple times as well. so that would be 53 – but now 52 since they waived Smith and they resign Sealver to the PS so who has that roster spot for this week until Irvin comes back next week? Or are they just leaving it open this week and they don’t have to waive anyone next week when they active Irvin.

    Quick question on Irvin: Does he get activated Monday since we play Sunday or do they have to wait until Tuesday at the end of the NFL weekend (MNF)

  8. GeorgiaHawk says:

    In response to a couple bloggers from a few threads back that said Todd asked for feedback.
    Yes indeed he did at least twice, however he also gave his email address for us to give him feed back.

    Instead of bitching and moaning about the way he does things on this blog, How about showing a little more respect for Todd down the road and simply email him with your concern.

    Remember Todd is not only new here, but he is also doing double duty right now.

  9. HawksfromDay1 says:

    Thanks xc, I should have looked at it closer.

  10. WiscCory says:

    Georgia, Bennett is the MAN!

    I do miss McGrath’s beard, however Bennett’s attempt is a close second.

  11. GeorgiaHawk says:

    WiscCory, I wish now that we would have kept McGrath. I think he is better then Kellen Davis.

  12. Dukeshire says:

    Was there “bitching and moaning”? I must have missed that, but then again I did skim over many of the comments as the thread wore on.

  13. Dukeshire says:

    I liked McGrath as well. Solid blocker and an underrated pass catcher, IMO. Not a dynamic athlete, at least by Carroll standards.

  14. GeorgiaHawk says:

    McGrath has been doing decent so far for KC. He’s caught 6 passes for 62 yards in his last two games.

  15. GeorgiaHawk says:

    How are we going to slow down JJ Watt? Sweezy has his work cut out for him.
    Watts vs. Sweezy. Sounds like something from the hills have eyes.

  16. banosser says:

    I hope our D can hold them to <17…

  17. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    i expect to see a lot of rolling wilson out of the pocket to avoid watts.
    also a lot of runs right at him to keep him honest.

  18. SandpointHawk says:

    The Blog Police have spoken…

  19. Dukeshire says:

    Its not Sweezy but rather Breno and Sweezy, as a combo. That’s the essence of zone blocking. In reality I expect to see a TE line up or motion to wherever Watt is, and if not double, then chip him to death. When Breno say, does match up one-on-one, he must stay in phase with him and ride him to the outside and back of the pocket. Much easier said than done.

  20. Todd Dybas says:


    In reference to Smith being on the depth chart, it’s because the Seahawks put this out before he was waived.

    And, yes, they are at 53 on the active roster right now.



  21. freedom_X says:

    If Houston is matching strength against weakness, they’ll have Watts rush from left end against Giacomini. If Giacomini pass-blocks as well as he did against Jacksonville, Wilson better wear a flak jacket.

    I can only hope it was due to Breno’s bad knee, and that knee heals by Sunday. Babin was blowing by Giacomini like he was anchored in cement.

  22. yankinta says:

    MikeFromNewJersey, do you have details of that conditional pick that we traded away for him? I’m interested….
