    I'm just seeing selfishness. He signed what I believe was a front-loaded contract. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.) So he was aware that the back-end of that contract wasn't going to be as rich as the front-end. The Seahawks invested in him with that contract and he should honor the entire agreement. Or at a minimum, fulfill all the duties required, like taking part in practice and showing up to meetings on time, while him and his agent are engaged in talks for a new contract or a trade. This horsesh*t of choosing when or even IF he will practice and all the public comments regarding the situation is just low rent.

    I don't like that the younger players see this. He's showing how far one can push PC/JS. I really want PC to punish him the way he would any other player. I want to hear about the discipline handed down to him. He's only a part of a team and he needs to calm the "F" down, play by the rules, and either be all in, or be a hold out and go home.

    I hope Earl isn't a leader on this team because this crap isn't leadership. Its grade school sniveling.

    So Earl says he won't practice if anything slightly hurts. Then says if the Seahawks would invest in him he'd practice.

    Not a good look. I think HE is done with US. Just get a vibe that option 1 is to get traded with a new Seahawk contract a distant 2nd.

    He shouldn't play if they are really gonna trade him. For me, he either plays happy or he sits. I'm very wary of a disgruntled guy playing not to get hurt. I don't think he is really gonna be 100% in this game.

    Woof. Well that MNF display was for the dogs. I'll throw the defense a bone though. Their performance surprised in a good way. Unfortunately that's where the the good times end. Some have strayed from the Seahawk Way and now I have to take Russell Wilson, Pete Carroll and John Schneider out of their comfy homes and put them in My Doghouse for reasons I shall now explain.

    1. Um... Russ kinda sucks so far this season. Why? Well, probably a number of things all at once. He's got a new OC that may not have many "...and if that play doesn't work just go school yard" type of plays that Russ is so famous for. I mean, the word has been since Schotty was hired that he would hold Russ more accountable. From what I've seen so far, it looks like a bad match. However in Schotty's defense, I'm not sure he has called a complete game to properly evaluate his approach to Russ and this offense. (More on that later.)
      Another reason is the O-line is still sub-par. Maybe it takes a few games to really grasp the teachings of the new O-line coach Mike Solari, but it looks to me like the line is just as bad as always or at least Russ has no faith in them.
      Oh, and can we talk about why the heck Russ is holding onto the ball for so damn long? Throw it, the fudge, away! Hot take right here: If Russ didn't hold the ball so long, Khalil Mack's stats wouldn't have looked as impressive and today we'd be talking about how Germain Ifedi actually did pretty good against the premier NFL pass rusher.

    Yeah, so chew on that!!

    1. Coach Carroll. Man, what was up with the whole not playing Carson in the 2nd half, then saying some garbage like "he was gassed"? I think you got called out on it and admitted it was a mistake. Or wait... Where you admitting that it was a mistake to be inserting yourself into the offensive playcalling and have Schotty dial up some long passes? They failed btw, and attributed nothing to an already stagnate offense. Bad Petey.

    2. I put this next one on John Schneider. In a baffling move, the Seahawks waived their veteran starting defensive tackle Tom Johnson to bring up a rookie db to the active roster. The idea was to re-sign Johnson after the game... I think. Well the Vikings just signed him so now he's making Viking money AND Seahawk money since his pay was guaranteed for the year. It was a great move by Johnson but how did JS not see that coming? And the kicker is that that rookie db didn't even play in the game!

    The only thing that brings me solace in a sort of weird way is I saw a stat that during the PC/JS era, the Seahawks have had a few other seasons that started off with 2 away games. Guess what? We started 0-2 every time. So we got that going for us. Maybe the season won't be a total loss. One thing I do know is Russ, Pete, and John have to get their act together if they want out of My Doghouse. I can't take an entire season of this crap.

    I haven't seen the Russell Wilson that I love to watch and cheer for at all in 2018. Is this the RW we'll have to watch until he fully gets command of the Schotty O?

    I was kind of surprised the defense kept us in it. I say "kind of" because I don't think much of Trubisky. And it is ridiculous that there was all this offseason talk about becoming a running team, and through 2 games its clear the run is only there to keep defenses honest. This is a "Lets make RW a star!" offense. And RW has yet to show up through 2 games so far. That means we get to watch a disappointing offense week after week. We're only 2 games in and my mind is wondering towards the top 10 draft pick we'll have in next years draft. From what the Seahawks have shown to this point, my expectations for the season have been greatly reduced.
