If it's not thread worthy, it goes here.
First Chefs QB drafted by them to win them a game since Todd Blackledge in 1987.
In that span they've had 3 Niners draftees win 83 games for them.
Dolphins come back would be a lot funnier if Ravens lost.
Broncos pick 5th
Also, a 49ers-Raiders coin flip for 9th and 10th.
Hawks pick 18th
No 2nd or 3rd Round Picks. 1 4th and 2 5s.
Man, that Walsh kicker is done. Missed multiple kicks against Washington, missed a couple against ATL, and here tonight.
Changes are coming in Seattle. Hopefully, it means the end of Bevell the OC and Cable the OL coach. Have to review everything, but, I think the Hawks have scored less than 10 points in their 8 road games in Q1. Then, you think about all of their home games where the offence was inept, against SF, LAR, WAS, and something needs to change. Can't spend an entire week preparing the offence only to see if sputter to start their first 2-3 drives of the game.
I expect that Avril is either cut or has to medically retire. Kam Chancellor signed a new deal so the cap savings if $2 million if they cut him. See how he is also medically. They could cut Sherman to save $11 million, but I don't think they have the depth behind him to offset it.
Cutting Avril saves them $7.5 million. Think Lane is gone too, if they can deal him for a day 3 draft pick they'll do it. Cutting Lane saves $4.75 million. Michael Bennett only saves $2 million if cut. Not sure if they could trade him to save the cap space.
Reported on Seahawks post-game that Bennett is considering retirement.
There's definitely going to be change. Hawks will take a cap hit even if he does retire I think. But, regardless, they took way too many penalties this season. On the last Cardinals drive, they forced a punt at the Cardinal's 20 only to have Wagner flagged for roughing the passer, which he clearly could have avoided.
Could see Bennett and Avril gone and a chance that Kam is gone if his injury is that serious. Richardson likely to leave as a free agent. Hawks could franchise tag him to get 1 final year out of him.
But, honestly, player personnel moves are secondary to replacing a couple of the coaches first. Jimmy G and Goff in the division and the D can't dominate like they have in the past. Need the offence to put up more points consistently, as well as score earlier in the game. Play with a lead.
really great story. For the younger people here, Easley was just as good as Ronnie Lott. He really was.
Seahawks are in need of a change.
I was a fan of Bennett's but after he claimed he was racially profiled during that incident and LV and it turned out he wasn't, I lost respect for him. I get how he champions for civil rights and against things like racial profiling, but the video clearly showed he was running out of the casino when the cops told everyone to get down.
Interesting the note that when comparing Harbaugh and Hoke's first 3 seasons at Michigan, Harbaugh has just two more wins.
Been saying that since I was a teenager! My all-time favorite.
Felt like a real triumph to see him get in despite the short career.
If you want to know which opponents each of the 32 teams will face for 2018, the NFL posted a article:
Opponents for each team set for 2018 NFL season
it would be pretty hilarious if that bengals win last night ends up saving marv's job
NFL schedule is pretty set in stone year in year out. Standard rotation of which other division within and outside your conference that you play.
6 division games, the 8 teams that everyone in your division with play.
Leaves just 2 teams based on the final standings that you end up playing within the conference.
Take the NFC WEST.
LAR with a 1st place finish will play Philly and NO who both finished 1st this year.
SEA with a 2nd place finish will play DAL and CAR who were #2 in their divisions.
AZ gets WAS and ATL. SF gets NYG and TB.
All other opponents are the same. Just a matter of whether you which of the above you play on the road or at home.
Last time SEA played Denver was following their SB win which Seattle hosted. Thus they play DEN on the road next season. They also last hosted the Raiders and played Chargers and Chiefs on the road. Thus, they rotate and host LAC and KC and go down to OAK.
Packers patriots is the extremely early game of the year
