Seahawks vs Raiders: Anger

Seahawks 34- Raiders 40, in overtime. Throughout the years of being a Seahawks fan, I’ve experienced a gamut of emotions: excitement, disappointment, anxiety, joy and despair to name a few. The one thing I’ve never felt deeply is anger or, more specifically, anger at the team.  But last night, as I watched Josh Jacobs blast down the field on an 86-yard touchdown run to win the game in overtime, anger is what bubbled up inside. While there is plenty to be upset about in this…

My Wish List: Seahawks vs Raiders

Week Twelve: Seahawks vs Raiders Ahoy, 12's!  Hopefully, everyone made it through the bye week intact. A week without the Hawks is a tough go indeed. I see you. I get you. I feel you. Luckily, we had the distraction of Thanksgiving to help push us through these last few days. I hope that eating, cleaning up, napping and eating again helped to ease the pain. The Seahawks are back home this week, welcoming the Raiders to Lumen Field. The Raiders are currently sitting at…

Transgender Day of Remembrance

Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance, when we pause to remember transgender people who have lost their lives to anti-trans violence. In the past year in the Unites States, 47 transgender souls were murdered in homicides driven by bigotry and fueled by political movements that condone it. 85% of these victims were people of color. Beyond these murders, countless transgender and nonbinary individuals are routinely subjected to physical assault, harassment, intimidation and verbal abuse. This is appalling and shameful. My 25-year old daughter is transgender.…

Seahawks vs Buccaneers: Schooled

Photo-Seattle Times The Seahawks lost to the Buccaneers 21-16 in a soul crushing stumble at Allianz Arena in Munich. The Bucs beat the Hawks across the board. They shut down the run game completely, with a defense that imposed its will on a hapless Seattle o-line and jammed up Kenneth Walker III all day. Conversely, their run game dominated, with Leaonard Fournette and Rachaad White pounding down the field to the tune of 162 yards. While Tom Brady had his way with the Seahawks secondary,…

Meine Wunschlite: Seahawks vs Buccaneers

Put on your lederhosen and hoist your stein! Seahawks vs Buccaneers in Munich! Let’s go! “Jolly” is not typically a word found in football parlance, at least not mine. Yet, it feels like the most fitting term for this international football event. The locale, the fans, the team and the cheers all culminate in a vibe that is distinctively jolly indeed. I’m rolling with that. Before jumping into my wish list- or, in a nod to the occasion, meine wunschlite- I want to give it…

Seahawks vs Cardinals (round two): Geno’s World

Photo- USA Today I must confess that I spent a good chunk of this game in a low-key funk, especially early on. Kyler Murray was scrambling all over the place. The Hawks defense was missing one tackle after another. An illegal contact penalty on Quandre Diggs robbed Coby Bryant of his first NFL interception.  On the other side of the ball,  the o-line struggled to open anything up, rendering the run game sluggish. While good stuff was happening – a tippy-toe touchdown from DK Metcalf,…

My Wish List: Seahawks vs Cardinals (round two)

  Week Nine: Seahawks vs Cardinals This is our second round with these divisional foes, and this time, we’ll be on their home turf. Can the Hawks keep the magic flowing another week? I think so. That said, I feel a little off about this one. Games at Arizona are sometimes really strange, and the Cardinals (3-5) are in a bit of desperation mode. This could be ugly. But as I said in the recap from last week, it is no longer a question of…

Seahawks vs Giants: LEGIT

Sunday's win against the Giants officially confirms it. The Seattle Seahawks are legit. The new and improved defense is here to stay. The offense continues to rock and roll. The 27-13 score doesn’t really tell the complete story. Save a fumble and dropped pass, both uncharacteristic, from Tyler Lockett, the score could have easily been 34-7. This wasn’t just a win. It was a statement. Geno is still bringing the shock and awe. He plays the entire field and utilizes all the weapons available to…

Vote Your Vision

Midterm elections are a week away. Over the years, I’ve unpacked a lot of issues here on the blog. I don’t know that there is anything I can say on any particular issue that I haven’t said already. At this point, it ultimately comes down to what our vision is for this country and voting accordingly. Here is mine. In my vision… Elections are won by ideas and policies that resonate with the majority, not by voter suppression, gerrymandering or violence. And the will of…

My Wish List: Seahawks vs Giants

Week Eight: Seahawks vs Giants The Seattle Seahawks (4-3) currently hold the top spot in the NFC West. One of the most exciting aspects of last week’s game against the Chargers –win aside– was that the team gave its most balanced performance yet, with offense, defense and special teams all balling effectively. It was particularly satisfying to see the defense play so solidly. After a rocky start, they’re steadily assuaging doubts. Fun stat: The Seahawks were ranked at 31 in the NFL for defensive efficiency…
