HAWKS HAVEN #5: LET’S SNAP THIS INSIGNIFICANT LOSING STREAK TO THE CARDINALS

HAWKS HAVEN #5: LET’S SNAP THIS INSIGNIFICANT LOSING STREAK TO THE CARDINALS

Hello everyone, Happy Holidays from the Seattleite crew, and welcome to another edition of Hawks Haven, where I will preview the Hawks-Cardinals game this Sunday. There’s not much at stake in this game other than some seeding implications. As long as a Seahawks loss isn’t coupled with Vikings home win against Chicago, the Seahawks will stay rooted at the 5th seed in the NFC Playoffs, and will have to travel to Dallas next week for the first round of the…

HAWKS HAVEN #4: PLAYOFFS BOUND

HAWKS HAVEN #4: PLAYOFFS BOUND

I know that we only do Hawks Haven on Fridays, but this moment deserves an edition of its own. The Seahawks are IN the playoffs!!!! After a huge win against the Chiefs at home, Hawks fans can finally sit back, and throttle back on their weekly scoreboard watching and their nervous fiddling with FiveThirtyEight’s playoff predictor feature. The Seahawks did everything that I believed they had to do to beat the Chiefs today, including building up an early lead, creating…

HAWKS HAVEN #3: SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL IN THE RAINY CITY

HAWKS HAVEN #3: SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL IN THE RAINY CITY

Welcome to another edition of Hawks Haven, where we will preview the Seahawks’ upcoming matchup against the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football. This will be the first Seahawks appearance on this primetime show, after an underwhelming 49ers season took them out of a Sunday primetime slot in Week 13. Prior to week 14, I wasn’t exactly sure how important this game would be for both the Chiefs and the Seahawks. If a handful of results occurred in week 14, this…

Jerry Dipoto Keeps Making Moves

Jerry Dipoto Keeps Making Moves

Earlier in the offseason, Jerry Dipoto made a few trades to rebuild the farm system and plan for the future. James Paxton was sent to the Yankees, Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano were traded to the Mets, and Jean Segura was traded to the Phillies. All of the players fetched prospects in return, signaling that Dipoto was looking towards 2021 and beyond. A lot of Mariners fans weren’t too excited about the moves, especially the Segura trade, which I didn’t…

HAWKS HAVEN #2: TO CLINCH OR NOT TO CLINCH

HAWKS HAVEN #2: TO CLINCH OR NOT TO CLINCH

To clinch or not to clinch (and wait one more week to clinch). The 2018 Seattle Seahawks campaign is probably the most surprising story of this NFL season so far, considering the manner in which they exceeded preseason expectations. This team was a rebuilding experiment, magically turned into a postseason contender through a resurgent run game and defense. More analysis on the unexpected success of the Seahawks this year can be found in the previous article in this series. I…

The Mariners are Rebuilding

The Mariners are Rebuilding

The 2018 season was a lot of things for the Mariners. It was a roller coaster of a year which started off well for the team, and they were exceeding all expectations through the first half. After Robinson Cano’s 80 game suspension for a failed drug test, the Mariners improbably heated up, putting themselves in prime position to snap the franchise’s 16 year playoff drought. It was also a fluke. The Mariners were sporting a solid but unspectacular run differential,…

HAWKS HAVEN #1: AN INTRO

HAWKS HAVEN #1: AN INTRO

As we enter the mundane period of the MLB free agency, the Seattleite crew thought it would be proper to chime in on the current talk of the town: our beloved Seattle Seahawks. So with that being said, welcome to the first ever edition of Hawks Haven, a series where we talk about everything Seahawks. The Seahawks currently sit at 7-5, which is an amazing feat considering that they have gone through one of the toughest schedules in the NFL,…
