Just how good are the 49ers and what am I expecting from the Seahawks this Sunday in Santa Clara? Using the latest DVOA rankings I’ll try and paint the picture of where these two teams fit in the NFC, and what I’m hoping to see from the Seahawks this week. --- Send in a voice message:

Worried about the Seahawks 2024 salary cap? I’m here for you! I took a deep dive behind the numbers, made some tough personnel decisions, and figured out a way to build a CONTENDER for 2024!!

With 5 games left in the regular season the Seahawks are now on the outside of the playoff picture looking in, with two more games against the NFC’s best teams preceding a (presumably) more forgiving finishing stretch. As we come down the stretch, jobs may be on the line both on the field and in the coaching booth. In this episode I assess who I think has the most to prove (and potentially lose) over these next 5-6 weeks. --- S...

How are you feeling about your 6-6 Seattle Seahawks after Thursday's 41-35 loss to the Dallas Cowboys?

Still a playoff contender? Are they a team on the rise or just treading water? Do they have enough stars to compete with the elite teams in the NFL? How far away are they from being a Super Bowl contender?

Today I put on my best objectivity face and try to point out 3 hard-to-accept realities that I believe are holding this ...

The Seattle Seahawks may have played their best game of the season Thursday night in Dallas, and it still wasn't enough to beat the red-hot Cowboys as they drop to 6-6 on the season after the 41-35 loss.

There were some positives to build on from this one, but they were marred from a couple unfortunate coaching decisions late in the 4th quarter.

Can this young team build off of tonight's performance? Or are the weaknesses...

One often-repeated definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting similar results. Is that what we're seeing with the Seahawks right now?

I believe the results of last night's 31-13 loss to the 49ers indicate that changes are needed in Seattle..... big changes.

Which ones am I talking about? Can they be done now, or will they have to wait until the offseason?

Most notably, is it time for...

Yet again, the Seattle Seahawks led the LA Rams 13-7 at the half, just as they did in week 1. And yet again, they come away empty-handed.

Sean McVay is now 15-5 vs. Pete Carroll after the Rams 17-16 Week 11 victory, dropping Seattle to 6-4 and out of a first place tie for the lead in the NFC West.

As they get set to face off with the division-leading 49ers, followed by equally daunting matchups with the Cowboys, Eagles and 49ers ...

How far have the Seahawks come since their 30-13 Week 1 loss to the LA Rams? Can the additions of Devon Witherspoon, Jamal Adams and Leonard Williams make a difference as Seattle gets set for this one? How healthy is Matthew Stafford?

Jeff Simmons, Seahawks analyst and co-host of Real Hawk Talk joins me for this one to offer up his thoughts on where this Seattle team is at the midway point.

What's been his favorite thing to watch in the first half?

How does he feel the Seahawks stack up against the NFC's west as they get set to play them all in a four game stretch (I ask him to guess how many games they win vs. the 49ers, Cowboys and Eagles!)

The Seahawks win a thrilling home contest as they get 5 Jason Myers field goals, including the buzzer-beater, to beat the Washington Commanders 29-26 at Lumen Field in Seattle on Sunday.

The offense rolled up nearly 500 yards including 369 in the air from Geno Smith and yet.... there were fans who wanted him benched at halftime.

In my LIVE reaction show I'll address Geno's performance, and that of the rest of th...

In this exclusive AUDIO-ONLY episode, I'll take a look at the Washington Commanders as they get set to visit the Seahawks in a Week 10 NFL Matchup at Lumen Field in Seattle.

Who is this team, how do they match up with the Seahawks, and should 12's be concerned about their explosive offense?

In some way, these two teams are extremely evenly matched. Could it be a tougher matchup than fans want to believe coming off the Haw...

Geno Smith vs. Drew Lock.... it's what some of you want to talk about this week, and has even been a big topic on local sports radio.

Is it warranted?

Today on the show I'll take a look behind the numbers. Who is Geno Smith, historically, and who is Drew Lock? How do they compare? Do their combined college and NFL stats indicate certain skills that may help make sense of the difference between the two?

Is the sky falling in the Pacific Northwest? Some fans seems to think so after the Seattle Seahawks brutal 37-3 loss at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Where does this team stand after that loss. Are they the first-place, 5-3 team their record would suggest? Or.... does this young roster have a LOT farther to go before they can be considered a legitimate playoff contender?

Today I pose 3 important questions I have co...

Do the Seattle Seahawks have what it takes to travel to Baltimore and beat Lamar Jackson and the red-hot Ravens?

They just might, if they tweak a few things in their running game. At least that's what some of the analytics suggest.

Today I'll take a look at some of those numbers, and try to dissect just how the Ravens defense has been stopping teams, and how the Seahawks may be able to crack that code.

The Seattle Seahawks are reuniting with an old friend, bringing back 2015 2nd round draft pick Frank Clark on a one year deal. The 30-year-old DE/OLB is expected to help fill the void left by the season-ending injury to Uchenna Nwosu.

Clark played in just 2 games with the Denver Broncos this season before being released after things didn't work out, but prior to that he racked up 58.5 career sacks over 8 years with the Seahawk...

Rookie WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba had his best game as a Seahawk Sunday against the Bengals, hauling in 4 catches for 48 yards in the 17-13 loss, but a number of plays NOT made could have made his performance look even better AND helped turn that loss into a win.

Is there enough evidence from Sunday to imply that JSN is poised for a big breakout? In this film breakdown I'll show you how he got open (and how OFTEN he got open) and t...
