I guess the schedule release video has become a social media competition between teams now. The Seahawks are falling behind in this regard, but this is still pretty adorable.

I watched a few of these that other teams created and the Jags and Chargers are worth checking out. Google it!

Ugh, it's frustrating for us to only get 3 primetime games when a team like the Vikings is going to get 5-6 (and the broncos have 2 SNF/MNF while we only have one). I bet the Hawks will make them regret their choices of two middling teams ahead of an NFC contender.

The networks have some options to flex games which is Seattle does well into the season by week 5 anything is possible for more primetime. Here's the skinny:

Flexible scheduling is in effect during the following windows (the "Flex Scheduling Windows"):

For Sunday Night Football, it may be used up to twice between Weeks 5-10, and in the NFL's discretion during Weeks 11 - 17;

For Monday Night Football it may be used in the NFL's discretion in Weeks 12 – 17.

Rams into shortweek 49ers is about as bad as possible. But to then back-to-back Thursday games with the Cowboys is kinda cool and unique.

NFL definitely missed a trick not putting us vs/at 49ers to close the season. Those games have always been epic even on down years for both teams. NFL clearly thinking us and the Cards will suck, whilst the Rams return to superbowl form. Guess we'll show them wrong, again.

Personal note, this schedule and game timing is leading me heavily away from paying for full GamePass. I think i can only watch Lions, Bengals, Ravens and Titans live and still be alive for work. Cheap tier and game highlights/replays a day or two late it is!

As someone who can't financially swing Sunday Ticket, I feel ya. There are a lot of free streams out there for NFL games, though. Coastal Carolina games take some Googling, but there are a load of free sites for pro games out there for the viewing. You can even cast them to your TV. There are some ads to x out of with most, and the stream is on delay, but after the YouTube pricing announcement, I don't even feel guilty about it.

I know where to find games for free (Avast me pirate brothers! - But not Buccaneers, no no they can go to hell), it's how I keep up with a lot of sports. It's quite purely the time of day vs the time of night for me, even being free i'm not staying up that late that often. Hopefully by the final few weeks we'll be a good team battling for the playoffs, so it's worth suffering being tired on Mondays for two months.

Not a lot in prime time. The networks don’t love the Seahawks yet. Of course they didn’t love the Seahawks back in 2013 either.

All away games after Ravens in week 9 are in southern locations.

Which is great health wise, though Nashville gets pretty cold.

12-5 Bay-bee! Except for the early bye I like it.

Not keen on an early bye week after that it's gonna be a grind

Expand full comment

The early Bye may help with getting Jordyn Brooks back.

11-6 Record

5-1 Division

8-4 Conference

Split with SF, they take the Division, we are the #2 Wild Card

A very nice set up for the 2024 season in which we are poised for...(shhhh, don't say it out loud)

It won’t be easy but my optimistic projection is 11 wins. Anything less than 10 would be a disappointment.

Whoa , they sure didn't do the Hawks any favors with that schedule with LA on week 11 through to week 17. Week 18 is Ok with the Cards, so at least the last game isn't the Niners.

I wanted week 18 to be vs 9ers. It's so often been a great game, even when the teams aren't at their best.

I got you, guess it could be a monster game-

Week 18 is at the Palace of Death, so I hate having that game then. I want @ARI early in the year, so there's a chance to recover from the inevitable serious injury the Hawks seem to get there every year.

Every schedule has tough stretches. If they are good, they’re better off with the tough stretch at the back end.
