    MAGA + Right for Life March + Circling Philips = Asshole

    Assholes don't deserve anything but I also don't feel bad when other assholes do something shitty in return.

    I hate how the default reasoning is that "he's a kid" so we should lessen any societal or media punishment. Sorry, you're the literal face of this event. There's nothing he did to defuse the situation and while he may claim later on that it was a misunderstanding he did nothing to show that.

    That smirk was a sign of control. That's not an awkward smile; that's just spin and lies trying to keep other assholes at bay and to gain sympathy.

    The Seattle Seahawks have signed quarterback Paxton Lynch as a backup option for Russell Wilson.
    The 24-year-old Lynch was drafted 26th overall by the Denver Broncos in 2016, but he started only four games over two disappointing seasons with the team before he was waived before the start of the 2018 season.
    He remained unsigned, making him eligible to sign a futures contract with Seattle before the start of free agency in March.

    Seattle owned the #26 pick in the 1st round and traded it to Denver to move back and take OL Germaine Ifedit at #31.

    No. 26: Seattle → Denver (D). Seattle traded its first-round selection (26th) to Denver in exchange for Denver's first- and third-round selections (31st and 94th).

    I am of the mindset that a Wall is just a waste of money; not that it would prevent people from easily crossing a border but that the up-keep would be such a drain on our government that it basically becomes it's black-hole for money.

    Instead of building a physical wall, that money could be better used towards equipment that has a lower cost but would result in better attempts to stop the criminal activity it pretends it would solve.

    Youtube Video

    Avril said he was the closest to RB Marshawn Lynch and DE Michael Bennett.

    Worth a listen to.

    We're planning on doing one more podcast for the 2018 NFL season. Most likely before or after the Superbowl.

    It'll be the State of the Seahawks Podcast.

    Have to celebrate Russell Wilson dominating the ProBowl for the 5th time.

    So here's question... is the Franchise Tag holding back Seattle from offering DE Frank Clark the best deal knowing they can lock him up for 1-year without his say?

    I look at the RB Le'Veon Bell issue in Pittsburgh (and knowing that RBs are disposed of easily) and worry that the Seahawks could find themselves in a situation where anything other than a long-term deal ends up breaking down the relationship. I don't think it's likely to happen but I worry that both parties get pushed to the extreme.

    After taking time off and assessing the game, I am less angry with the play calling and blame the execution more.

    Perfect example, Penny comes in an rips off 28-yards off tackle and then they go for a toss to the left... only for LT Duane Brown to clip his TE Dickson who is suppose to clip the charging DE. Essentially we killed our own toss because we took out the main blocker who is responsible for screwing up our run.

    Blame game:
    50% Execution
    20% Play calling (the 3rd-and-long players were pretty terrible, TE pass outside with no lead blockers?)
    20% defense (held the Cowboys to two 3rd-down stops but gave up penalties; and were one 3rd and 13 stop from keeping it a 1-score game at 3-minutes)
    10% special teams (our special teams are the wrong kind of "special")

    The football season is dead to me until the Superbowl; Chargers vs. Saints.

    The biggest need is Franchise DE Frank Clark or get a deal so you can Franchise someone else (really no one else to use this on).

    Of the FAs, I would target RB Mike Davis, and either JR Sweezy or DJ Fluker (probably lean towards DJ). I would let Dion, KJ, and Justin Coleman go unless a better deal falls into our laps. Earl is not coming back and everyone else is replaceable.

    Of the RFAs, tender everyone but FB Madden.

    Seahawks are projected for $63 million in cap space.

    The loss I can handle... poor game play and poor execution doomed us. The Defense could only hold on for so long before giving up to late TDs that sealed the win.

    Glad they made it close but the NFL has basically done the anti-NBA of encouraging late comebacks by altering the kick-off rules.

    The worst thing will be all the Cowboy fans will be crowing how this is their ticket to the Superbowl. They're still a flawed team and while Dak is a good QB, I don't think of him of anywhere near the top 2 tiers. He's a more mobile, weaker armed Matt Stafford in my eye.
