Hawk Tawk Week 3, a place for all things Seahawks!

Hey 12thMen, and 12 Women!

I’m back!  Let’s Tawk Hawk real quick.  I have to get out to the Golf Course so this is going to be fast.

So what do you think of Jermaine Kearse?  He looks like he has the guts and skills to be a player in the upcoming season eh?  I am excited to see how this all unfolds.  Kearse as a back up to Rice, Tater, and Dougie Fresh….oh and don’t forget Mr. Williams…he has skills to pay the bills as well.  Most folks probably don’t see it this way, but the Hawks are deep at Receiver, shoot they are trying to figure out how to cut someone, not which one they should keep.  I really like Kearse, have since his days as a Husky (GO DAWGS!) and really hope his recent emergence steamrolls into success as a Hawk.  Our imported preseason star Mr. Williams has been making noise too.  He has shown that he can get behind defensive backs and that he has sticky fingers when it matters.  Why didn’t he catch on in Arizona you say?  Larry, that’s why.

They are also deep at corner, and I will be paying close attention to everything the backups do after the starters are off the field.  We can’t keep them all, so I need to find who I like.

We should get a good hard look at the starters (those who are healthy) tonight.  We all know what we want to see, so today I’ll Tawk about what I don’t want to witness.

The most glaring issue is that the offensive line cannot continue to stall drives and draw stupid penalties.  Off sides, holding, personal fouls, they all have to go.  It is absolutely infuriating watching Giacomini commit stupid penalty after stupid penalty. It isn’t like his super great at doing his job, I wonder if his seat is getting hot yet? They need to figure out how to play disciplined and focused and keep Russell from having to work so (sic) Dange hard.   It is hard as a passionate fan to watch the offensive line of your favorite team muddle in mediocrity year after year, they need to get this fixed.  Russell Wilson deserves a great supporting cast, and no quarterback is a “Great Quarterback” without a “Great Offensive Line.”

I don’t want to see Seattle’s corners and safeties let Rogers and his Packers march down the field only to turn the ball over at the goal line, and then have to run it all the way back to the other side of the field.  As exciting as it was, they need to cut all the drama and just take the ball away right off the get go.  They can save themselves a lot of work by only having to return fumbles and interceptions 40 or 50 yards instead of 106 yards.  “Work smarter, not harder,” I say.  No need to play with my emotions for the sake of ratings and such.

I do not, I repeat, DO NOT want to see Brady Quinn do anything.  Nothing.  Nada.  Zip.  Zilch.  Once Russell is done playing with his food, give the plate to T-Jack and let him finish the meal.  There is absolutely no reason at this point to even keep Quinn on the roster.  Let him go, be free Quinn, run Quinn run.

I do not want to see or hear Joe Buck or Skip Bayless.  Seriously, I have lost enough hair all on my own without listening to these two dudes destroy the credibility of humanity.  I hope aliens don’t listen to their broadcasts, they really won’t be very impressed with our advances in evolution if they do.

I do not want the CO2 tank to run out on my “beverage dispenser,” during the game.  That, my friends, would a serious bummer.   My buddy Ted  says He does not want to see that either.


I have been testing Mike’s “beverage dispenser.” I have been testing it a lot!” GO Hawks!!

I do not want to check back here in a couple of days and see that only four people including myself have made comments.  If you have something to say, please do.  Everyone needs attention some times.  Let me know what you think.

I do not want to see any more serious injuries to either team, so here is to a healthy, hard-hitting, exciting game of football, with NO injuries.

I do not want to say good-bye, so until next week…so long.

12thman now, 12thman forever.  GO HAWKS!

    “I do not want to check back here in a couple of days and see that only
    four people including myself have made comments…” Michael, you made some good points regarding Kearse, the offensive line not being in synch, defense giving up long drives and the rest. It’s your great sense of humor that stands out the most though, that’s why you are the latest recipient of Ug’s Most Funniest Read of the Year Award! As an UMFRY award winner, you are entitled to many benefits such as watching Seahawk games, adding UMFRY Award Winner to your resume, and deducting five points from your golf handicap (one point for each letter in UMFRY). Good luck!

    I agree. Reduce the number of penalties, play strong and get out of the Bay with no injuries. Go Hawks!

  • Wilson

    Didnt read past the second paragragh and had to like the article and your reference to eh. Where in Canada are you from eh?

    From your proud Canadian Seahawks fans!

    Go Hawks!

  • matchewthathwasksfan

    First off, Im happy for Kearse! He needs to be on this Hawks team. I thought last year he needed to be on the feild more. Second, i compleatly agree with you on Giacomini… im really wondering why we dint work harder to relace him in the off season, i cant stand how he works against us with all of his penalties. I was at the denver game and wow did the seahawks bring it, not to mention the 12th man, im just starting to get my voice back. I have to try and get it back for that SF game, ill be there too. Reppin for all my fellow 12′s! We will prove that were the best fans in football and in sports! GO HAWKS… AND GO 12th MAN!!!

    • Hawkman54

      Not one penalty one Breno last night but FOUR on Sweezy!!!!!

  • Ron Grummer

    Sounds cranky and rather ashamed of having a team that is too good for your liking, but maybe I’m just jealous that I can’t be headed out to the golf course with a weekend off ahead of me.
    Go ‘Hawks

  • Dan Wynne

    You’re a DORK, Mr. White!

  • Michael James White

    Dan…Yes I am…there is a dorkus amungus. Rondon’t hate, celebrate…and I would never be ashamed of my Hawks…I rock my colors every day right here in the Heart of Texas, Match……fan, dude that is a long name, Kearse is a baller indeed, and I hope to see you in the stands getting the 12thman hyped, Wilson, not from Canada…from west Coast (Seattle to San Diego) but I am a dork and do enjoy foreign languages eh hoser?
    deanrobert99, GO Hawks!!,

    Ug, I can’t believe this. I have never won anything, and now here I am in front of the world being recognized with this prestigious honor. I will cherish this forever. Might even get some new ink based solely upon this recognition. You sir, ahve made my day. Go Hawks! Ug those packers:)

      Not many people get that award (your sort of the first). Next, in the words of William Shakespeare, “Cry havoc and let slip the Seahawks of war!”

  • Brent White

    Looks like the online isn’t cooperating at all man. The interior seems to be making a mockery of your no see list. Oddly, Giacomini has been pretty quite whistle wise.
    D got the message though. 1st unit looked real solid. McDaniel flashing some monster

    • Brent White

      Oh now they’re just F’ing with you. Quinn in. It even looks bad in writing.

  • Hawkman54

    Breno didn’t have ONE penalty last night ( through Three quarters 2nd time watching), BUT Sweezy had four penalties( three holding calls, two on pass plays one on a run and a personal foul- Plus Sweezy got beat straight up four times three on pass plays and one on a run play- HE is without a doubt the weak link on the O-line and makes Breno’s job WAY harder ! Maybe getting rid of Moffitt was not such a good idea. The team played better last year every time Moffitt came in and Sweezy went out – that is for sure!

  • Michael James White

    At least Giacomini reads Hawk Tawk….Mr Sweezy…you sir need to pull up my article and read it. C’mon brother…that was a tremendous failure for “The Sweezster,” and if you want to keep your fan base and salary earning potential you will have to do much better.

  • Team Mayowa™

    I agree about Breno….. he’s got to stop committing so many penalties. Mayowa had another great game as did McDaniel (I hope he can stay healthy, I like him on our D Line) and Williams had another big game. I like what we are seeing on both sides of the ball minus the penalties and am happier than ever to have T-Jack back behind Russ. I think Quinn will be cut after we smash the Raiders and for good reason…. T-Jack is just better. Go Hawks!

    • jubabeast

      I don’t know a whole lot about Giacomini except I don’t see him taking nearly so many penalties as he was previously. When the Hawks have a big-penalty game Giacomini seems to always get the blame but I think he has cleaned up his act substantially. I’d like to know how many flags he got in the Carolina game because my guess is that he didn’t do so bad.
