Do the Seahawks Need to Fire Pete Carroll?

Do the Seahawks Need to Fire Pete Carroll?

Last Sunday, the Seahawks lost a frustrating Divisional Round game to the Green Bay Packers. After falling behind 21-3 at halftime, the Seahawks cut the deficit to just 5 points in the fourth quarter and had a chance to pull ahead. When they couldn’t score on their final drive and punted back to the Packers, Aaron Rodgers was able to secure the two first downs the Packers needed to end the game. But maybe Rodgers shouldn’t have had the ball…

2019 NFL Playoff Predictions

2019 NFL Playoff Predictions

Ton: Wild Card Round Bills over Texans 27-10 I won’t be surprised with how this game pans out. Deshaun Watson and Co. will struggle coming out of the gate, because that’s just how the Texans offense has been lately. Watson won’t get the protection he needs from this swarming Bills front, and DeAndre Hopkins will be handled accordingly by the Bills DBs. Checkdown Charlies to Carlos Hyde produce a lot of three and outs, equating to a miserable, unrecoverable first…

The Rams Tried to Build a Superteam and it May Have Ruined Their Future

The Rams Tried to Build a Superteam and it May Have Ruined Their Future

Ten months ago, the Los Angeles Rams capped off their incredible 2018 season with an appearance in the Super Bowl. Despite laying an egg on offense in a loss to the Patriots, the future of the Rams looked bright. Quarterback Jared Goff continued to defy expectations after his awful rookie season, and the offense produced at a historic rate. While the Rams are a respectable 8-5 heading into week 15, their season feels like a massive disappointment. Almost everyone on…

Evan White’s Contract Extension is a Brilliant Move by Jerry Dipoto

Evan White’s Contract Extension is a Brilliant Move by Jerry Dipoto

There is actually some real Mariners news to talk about. On Friday, it was reported that the Mariners signed first base prospect Evan White to a six-year, $24 million contract. The contract also includes three team options that can bring the maximum value to $55.5 million. It’s an unprecedented move, making White the first AA player to receive a long-term extension. He is now likely to begin the 2020 season as the Mariners’ starting first baseman. It seems a bit…

Kill the Astros!

Kill the Astros!

As you probably know by now, the Houston Astros are being investigated for cheating right now. They would use a camera to steal catcher signs from their opponent, then relay the information to someone outside the dugout. That person would bang on a trash can to signal to Astros batters what pitch was coming next. I have mixed feelings about this whole scandal as a Mariners fan. On one hand, it’s a somewhat painful to know that the Mariners potentially…

How Tall is Eric Paschall?

How Tall is Eric Paschall?

The Golden State Warriors just picked up their second win of what has been a mostly terrible season through seven games. One bright spot has been rookie second-round draft pick Eric Paschall, who scored 34 points and grabbed 13 rebounds against the Portland Trail Blazers today. But there’s something very strange about him that I just had to write about. After an impressive 25-point performance from Paschall against the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday, I had to find out more about…

Unburdened by Bryce Harper, the Nationals have Finally Reached the World Series

Unburdened by Bryce Harper, the Nationals have Finally Reached the World Series

I apologize for the clickbait title. Bryce Harper was not the reason the Nationals were unable to reach the World Series before. The Nationals suffered three brutal losses in Game 5 of the NLDS since 2012, and the culprit was always pitching. Drew Storen allowing four runs in his blown save against the Cardinals in 2012. The Dodgers’ four-run seventh inning in 2016. Max Scherzer’s disastrous four-run relief appearance against the Cubs in 2017. Bryce Harper was not the problem…

HAWKS HAVEN #8: THE START OF A NEW ERA…OR IS IT?

HAWKS HAVEN #8: THE START OF A NEW ERA…OR IS IT?

At a time when you’d probably least expect it, Hawks Haven is back! In case you forgot about us already, Hawks Haven is a running article series that covers our beloved Seahawks, and as the Mariners continue to tumble towards a very favorable draft pick you definitely could not blame us for taking a peek at what the Seahawks have in store for us in 2019. Let’s be honest here. 2019 has not treated the Seattle sports fan well, and…

No, Fabiano Caruana Did Not Inspire a Generation of Young American Chess Players

No, Fabiano Caruana Did Not Inspire a Generation of Young American Chess Players

Fabiano Caruana, without question, is the best classical chess player in the United States. He’s the 2nd best chess player in the world. And last November, he was just a tiebreak away from becoming World Champion.  In the American mainstream media, Caruana has been portrayed as the successor to 11th World Champion Bobby Fischer. He’s written about as a celebrated, nationally-admired figure, one that has inspired a generation of young American chessplayers. In many ways, Caruana is widely seen as…

It’s Over For the Warriors

It’s Over For the Warriors

After five years of dominance, the Golden State Warriors’ dynasty finally came to an end. The Toronto Raptors accomplished what most people thought was impossible, defeating the juggernaut that the Warriors had built. But there’s just one catch. The Warriors weren’t the same juggernaut anymore by the end of Game 6. Kevin Durant returned for Game 5 and gave the Warriors a boost, only to suffer a ruptured Achilles tendon. During the third quarter of the last game, Klay Thompson…
