Hola 12s!
Holy moly we are back baby! I said it all day yesterday to multiple people, how the game this week turns out will spell the rest of the season for our boys. We've got one of the easier schedules for the remainder of the year, so this was our last big test. If we were to come out and put on a display, we were going to look just fine in the playoffs, but if it was more of what we have seen in the last 2 weeks, I was not confident we would have ANY success in the post season. Luckily, it was the former that was done this week. Hosting the Cardinals in the newly named Lumen Field, our boys put on a great show that proved that the last couple weeks were nothing but injured players, and botched opportunities.

Offensively speaking, I was slightly worried about missing Ethan Pocic at center, but Damien Lewis filled the position beautifully. Metcalf was looking like his usual beastly self, Tyler Lockett was running circles around the defense, David Moore was looking great out there, and we warmly welcomed the return of Carlos Hyde, whom I truly hope hangs with the team for years to come. The man gets it done.
Defensively, we looked so much better this week. Quandre Diggs, Jamal Adams, Ryan Neal protected that backfield like damned pros, and the addition of Snacks and Dunlap on the front line made Kyler Murray run for his life all game long, making for a smashing final play of the game.

Very proud of our boys and looking forward to the remainder of the season. We got a barn burner to prep for next week against the top team in the NFC East, the 3-5-1 Philadelphia Eagles, in their home stadium. Gonna need all the support they can get this week 12s. They'll be playing Sunday morning against the Browns at 10am if you're like me and want to do some recon before the game. Get hyped Seahawk fans! We're looking good and IIIIIIII like it! With that....Mike Hawk is OUT!
