Devon Witherspoon's film debut
Seahawks premier The Sound of the Seahawks on Thursday: Seaside Joe 1545
“Kenny Content? Kenny Content,” you say? Finally, the Seattle Seahawks must be subscribed to and reading Seaside Joe, the daily Seahawks newsletter.
Nope, just Kenny McIntosh content:
Hey, we’ve got Kenny content here too!
(Since Twitter no longer allows Substack users to embed tweets, I’ve decided to post videos using a work around by capturing the videos with GIPHY.)
The Seahawks have posted a few practice videos to their Twitter page this week during OTAs, including that above clip with McIntosh and this following “interception” by Devon Witherspoon:
As of Thursday afternoon, we’ve also seen rookie Mike Morris get in a practice rep (neat!) and Geno Smith airing it out to Tyler Lockett:
The Seahawks are done with video content on Thursday, as The Sound of the Seahawks is premiering season two on Thursday at 4:30 PM PT and the team posted a season two trailer in the morning. (The NFL blocks embedding their videos also, so I can only give you links.)
One question I do have that I can put to the Seasiders is, “What Emmy was The Sound of the Seahawks nominated for?”
I couldn’t find anything online for the sports or regular Emmys.
If you’re not familiar with Seattle’s YouTube series, there’s a full playlist here with all 10 episodes. Similar to regular TV, views peaked in the premiere episode with 82,000 with a dropoff to 55,000 in episode two about Clint Hurtt, and then just 16,000 views for the season one finale. I’m curious to see how the Seahawks are planning to make changes from season one to season two because this is the team’s first real foray into documentary filmmaking about the franchise. Some other teams have been at it for many years and it takes time for these things to improve.
There have been Seahawks fans who have had bigger followings for their Seahawks documentaries than the Seahawks themselves. We all remember when Rain City Redemption was appointment television.
I mean, Josh Cashman has a bigger Seahawks video following just by posting Twitter videos.
We’ll have to check back in after the weekend to see how the season two premiere of The Sound goes and if you watch it and want to leave a comment, drop it here. If you’re a free subscriber and leave a comment, I’ll send you some amount of days of premium Seaside Joe access for no charge to try it out as a thank you:
Speaking of the weekend and of Clint Hurtt, we have great plans ahead:
Friday is the Origin Story of Seahawks defensive coordinator Clint Hurtt
Saturday I’ll be asking for your advice on which FREE Origin Story you want me to post next week
Sunday I’m going to give a peek behind the curtains at how I do what I do at Seaside Joe and my favorite NFL tools, websites, as well as why I do NOT use PFF grades

Liked the Sound. Better than Broncos put out.
I just watched Season 2, Episode One, "A New Hope" (oops, I mean "A New Dawn"). I don't agree with some others here that they've improved anything. This episode was supposed to give us a look inside the draft room, and a glance at our new Seahawks and what their experience was like in their earliest moments as professionals. I didn't get any sense of the emotion that goes with these experiences. John Schneider is a pretty expressive guy and kind of carried the episode. It would have been really boring without him. It was cool to see the rookies in some behind-the-scenes moments, but there was no context to these scenes or any attempt at story telling. They need to get a better director to help tell a story, set up the scenes, help with the editing, etc. You are working with coaches, staff, and professional athletes, not actors; give them some help!!!
