Hello Seahawks Fans, welcome to the Hawks Playbook Podcast. In today’s episode, Bill and Keith take a first look at the current state of the salary cap for the team. The bottom line?

EPS 46: Coaching Carousal

Shottenheimer was hired to execute Pete Carroll’s philosophy and vision and sublimate his own interests, and continue to develop an offense around the dynamic Russell Wilson at quarterback. If what you were after was a young, unproven but up and coming innovative force as offensive coordinator, then you will be disappointed.

We will hand these out in several categories, like Player of the year for each position group, including coaches, and a few other categories just for fun.

EPS 44: A Fitting End to A Less Than Ideal Season

It was a fitting and darkly poetic finish to the season, as the game encapsulated all that was wrong with the under performing season. Slow starting offense with 24 first half yards, a great comeback effort by Russell Wilson and crew, only to be thwarted by unfortunate and ill-timed penalties that allowed the Cardinals to score on their last drive, and force a last second field goal attempt by Walsh who missed. The 2017 season in a nutshell.
