Football season is back! And lookie here, we get to start the season the same way we left off — with a matchup against our old AFC West rivals and Super Bowl XLVIII opponent.
While this one doens’t mean as much, I suppose if you want to find some meaning to this game, the Seahawks do have a shot at pushing their preseason win streak to 10 games. So that’s something. Also, this will be the fourth time Russell Wilson faces the Broncos and hasn’t dropped a game to them. Seattle has a couple streaks to try and maintain.
If my math is correct, the Seahawks have scored 113 points to the Broncos 28 over these last three meetings. If Seattle can win by 15 points, we’ll have 100 on them going into the matchup in week 3.
I feel like I’ve sufficiently built this game up now to the point where I can convince myself that even though a preseason win doesn’t mean much — I really want to see a win Thursday night against Denver.
Be sure to take a look at some of the featured content in the sidebar. If you’re serving overseas and have family in the Seattle area, pay particular attention to the top one. You have a chance at getting four tickets for family and friends to a game this season. Just record an 8-10 second video (see the post for instructions) and send it to me. I’ll share it with the club and see if we can get you up on the big screen during the game.
My goal is to get at least six videos by the end of the weekend.
Thanks to all our members who made it out to the Richard Sherman Celebrity Softball Game. I had a great time at the game and it sounded like many of you did as well. It was outstanding seeing 22,000 other Seahawks fans packing the lower levels of Safeco Field. Next up: packing CenturyLink Field for the first preseason game against the Chargers!
PRESEASON GAME 1: NOT ON AFN OR DTS
Apparently Super Bowl XLVIII was such a blowout that AFN and DTS are choosing not to air the preseason rematch.
The good news is that it looks like the preseason game in Seattle against the Chargers will air the following week.
Sea Hawkers podcasT: Episode 33
Season two of the Sea Hawkers Podcast starts with training camp and what better news to start off the latest season than to welcome Marshawn Lynch back to the team after his holdout. Adam and Brandan talk about what Lynch means to this team, how he’s not a replaceable piece of the offense like a certain ESPN reporter may think, and why it was important for the team to hold the line with his contract in the way they did.
Michael Robinson talked about his concerns the team may not have the veteran leadership in place to handle some of the big money deals that have transpired over the offseason. The guys provide their reactions and talk about if Robinson’s presence could have prevented Lynch’s holdout situation.
One guy who stands out to Adam so far in training camp is Phil Bates. We discuss the wide receiver group as a whole and how they’re going to be “just fine” without Golden Tate and Sidney Rice. Of concern so far in training camp is losing Anthony McCoy and Jesse Williams so soon. Are we going to have to deal with another Kellen Davis situation at tight end this year?
After visiting a few weeks back on 12 for 12s Radio, Adam and Brandan welcome Paul Beyer to the Sea Hawkers Podcast to discuss Marshawn Lynch, training camp, and a recent interview on Paul’s show with the guys who want to “Build the Tip.”
The NFL commissioner and NBA player Kevin Love are called to carpet and dressed down in the “Do Better” segment. Texans running back Arian Foster and Seahawks GM John Schneider are celebrated in the “Better at Life” segment to close the show.
