Geno Smith is the only guaranteed Week 1 starter in the division: Seaside Joe 1530
Those videos by J.T. O’Sullivan are exactly what I've been looking for. Having never played football, I'm often lost in arcane discussions of defenses and offenses. Wish I'd found this years ago. I'm 60 but better late than never. I plan to study this.
The litany of injuries helps explain why Pete would rather have Drew Lock than—say—Hendon Hooker.
OK - not trying to do anything incorrect here- BUT on Seattleseahawks.com senior reporter John Boyle was able to be in the Hawks draft room the entire time all three days! and Wrote a Fantastic article on exactly how things went down. Fantastic- not being wealthy ,I would pay some good dollars to be there like that!!! Great Article -must read!!!!!
I'm on a short vacation, but I'm still searching for Seahawks content that will tickle my football bone, but there should be a name for this part of the season. The doldrums would be cliche but it fits. Not much happening so everyone is speculating and writing pre pre schedule stories. I guess I haven't advanced to the level where the schedule can be salivated over.
Your list QB's we might face sounds above average, but steel sharpens steel. It is they who should be afraid of meeting us. So I am watching old Seahawks games.
Thanks for the X's and O's help. This old brain doesn't retain as much from a single read or view so while not hopeless, my hopes of becoming someone who can more edumacated critique the Hawks defense, especially after a loss. Or the offense. Or the coaches. Or the reporters.
Here is how I cope with losses, I concentrate on the next game. i mostly avoid the average comments section, and then eventually time does its healing thing and by then the next game is upon us.
There are no content creators who are grifters. They are all artists. They are sometimes fairly pitiful artists. but they are trying. We vote with our views. I check out almost everyone. Subscribe (no money changing hands) to plenty and am not afraid to unsubscribe, either.
Do what you love, and if somehow you can make a living at it, great. If not, it's a hobby, but you are an artist and no one knows where it will lead. Numbers are meaningless. It doesn't matter how many fail, it is all about those gems that succeed. I've dabbled. I've written for audiences of one or two. I acted and sung and searched for artistic driftwood, and sold it. I hope everyone dabbles in some sort of art form. Art is our highest calling and mingles with mysticism and spirituality.
I LOVE that response you had to the Malik Willis post! Classic!
On a semi-related note, did y'all see this?
From Twitter (can't paste images here, so):
Video Surfaces of Philadelphia #Eagles first round pick Jalen Carter repping blood gang, he could possibly be facing suspension
Like we needed ANOTHER reason to trust PCJS decisions and culture/character emphasis!
Congrats Joe! Awesome site, great work with the draft. Substack works well.
Also, what an all-time tweet by Ben Baldwin, the self-proclaimed smartest football mind ever. The best thing about the tweet ... I can almost guarantee you that Ben does not see any issues with it.
"What ... was I wrong? No ... you always take a QB there. You can find running backs on the streets" - This is what I would imagine him saying/thinking. Pretty unbelievable especially since he was dead ass wrong.
Awesome reply to Baldwin. I'm gonna be laughing for the rest of the day.
I'm looking forward to learning some Xs and Os. It's an area I've always wanted, but never taken the time, to learn a bit more about. Thanks for sharing these resources and some of what you're learning.
I like that, throwing a little shade at computer cowboy. I only have two things to say, “May the 12s be with you and Go Seahawks!”
I was too busy in my day job to reply to yesterday's article so I'll do so now. I have learned more about the Seattle Seahawks, PC/JS, drafting process, managing the cap and the financial side of professional football, mock drafts, click bait NFL writers, and other aspects of the National Football League industry than I ever imagined possible through Seaside Joe. I love it! In fact, Seaside Joe has basically REPLACED Bleacher Report for me...I hardly ever look at it anymore. Between you and your Seasiders I'm learning every day and I don't see that changing. You had me at Devon Witherspoon!! Great job Kenneth!
