On Identity

I've always loved baseball for one main, stereotypical reason: it's a reflection of life. Sometimes you succeed and touch a glorious moment, sandwiched between many failures. You can't swing at everything, especially the curves. Win or lose, you do it all again tomorrow, under the guise of a clean slate, which is a beautiful and … Continue reading On Identity

Seahawks expectations: buffering… buffering… please wait

How good are the Seahawks? They're 2-0, but only plus-3 in the point department. They're led by a nearly flawless Russell Wilson, if he ever gets time to throw. They can run, they can pass, they can defend when they're not fucking up a Hail Mary situation or backed up to their own goalposts after … Continue reading Seahawks expectations: buffering… buffering… please wait

You're thinking of when coaches discuss ahead of time how best to create pathways to victory, through efficient and strategic playcalling, then follow through on game day. So, A) you're thinking of another team, and B) a different kind of script. Think, more, … Continue reading There’s a reason Week 1 played out like it did

John Schneider Clowneys the NFL again

If it’s cutdown day, that means John Schneider is probably John Schneidering. This time he dealt spare parts and a duplicate (triplicate?) draft pick for a top 5 defensive end. Which just so happened to be the Seahawks’ most glaring offseason need. With Jadeveon Fucking Clowney opposite a suddenly-ready-to-go Ziggy Ansah, the pass rush is … Continue reading John Schneider Clowneys the NFL again
