The stupidest name in smart football analysis.
  • Ex-Seahawks receiver, Super Bowl champ Ricardo Lockette arrested on felony charges

    Lockette was a part of Seattle’s Super Bowl winning team.

    Former Seattle Seahawks receiver and Super Bowl champion Ricardo Lockette was arrested in his home state of Georgia on Wednesday.

    Lockette was facing charges of possession of a firearm during the commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies, possession of a vehicle with altered VIN (felony), and felony theft by receiving stolen property. Fulton County records indicate that Lockette was released from jail on Thursday on an unsecured judicial release (in other words, released without bond), and the firearms charge has been dismissed.

    Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB-TV reports that Lockette was driving a stolen 2021 Ram 1500 TRX when police conducted a traffic stop. Here are the key details from the probable cause affidavit, as outlined in the WSB-TV report:

    “The key FOB found in Mr. Lockette’s possession was for a Ram Limited, which was inconsistent with the RAM TRX he was driving,” a reporting officer wrote in the probable cause affidavit. “Further investigation revealed that the vehicle identification number displayed on the front windshield and the door jam was fraudulent.”

    When investigators ran the original VIN, they determined that the truck had been reported stolen out of Atlanta on March 24, 2023 court records revealed.

    Under the fake VIN, Lockette came back as the registered owner of the stolen truck that he had been driving with a suspended license.

    He was also in possession of a Glock 43 9mm pistol, according to court documents.

    When officers told Lockette that he had been driving a stolen truck, the Albany, Georgia native told police that he had purchased the vehicle in 2020 during the pandemic.

    “He (told us) he found the vehicle on Facebook Market but couldn’t provide a date,” a responding officer wrote in his probable cause affidavit. “He stated that he went to Columbus, GA, to purchase the vehicle from a buy here pay here dealership. Again, he couldn’t provide a date of purchase or how much he paid. He stated that he couldn’t remember if he paid cash or used the bank to purchase it. He stated that the vehicle was paid off at the time of purchase”

    But when police searched the truck, they found a temporary tag that had been issued on May 3, 2023, a little more than a month after it was reported stolen, according to the arrest affidavit.

    Lockette spent five seasons (over two separate stints) with the Seahawks. He was signed by Seattle as an undrafted free agent out of Fort Valley State in 2011, eventually carving out a role as a reserve wide receiver (usually targeted on deep routes to take advantage of his speed) and special teams gunner. A serious neck injury suffered in 2015 influenced his decision to retire in the 2016 offseason.

    Since his retirement, Lockette has served as a player advisor for the Harvard Football Players Health Study, which is “a comprehensive research program which examines the multifactorial causes that impact the health and wellbeing of former NFL players.” Lockette was most recently present at Lumen Field last season as part of the Seahawks’ 10th anniversary Super Bowl team celebration.

  • 2024 NFL Draft Profile: Duke offensive lineman Graham Barton
    Photo by David Jensen/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

    Barton is one of the top offensive linemen in this year’s NFL Draft.

    Despite not being a sexy pick, addressing the interior of the offensive line seems like one of the smartest ways to approach the first round of the NFL Draft. In recent years we’ve seen the likes of Chris Lindstrom, Quenton Nelson, Alijah Vera-Tucker, and Tyler Linderbaum all go at some point on Day 1. Like any position, there are going to be misses, but the hit rate seems more impactful and frequent than nearly any other position in the draft. Down below we are going to review a player who could be next on that list in former Duke Blue Devil Graham Barton.

    What makes him a late Day 1/early Day 2 option?

    Barton is a freak athlete, with a Relative Athletic Score of 9.99

    Yes, you read that right, across 27 years of NFL Combine testing, Barton is the third most athletic offensive guard in history. Now I understand that a 40 time isn’t overly relevant for an offensive lineman. However, having a solid 10 and 20 yard split is extremely indicative of how good of a downfield blocker a lineman will be and Barton is more than elite in those two areas.

    Despite being 6 foot 5, Barton is able to gain leverage in the running game in short yardage situations, allowing him to drive blockers back.

    Barton does have the strength necessary to steer defenders away from the gap he is sealing to create large run lanes. He also has enough quickness out of his stance to get across players on reach blocks.

    What is holding him back?

    The biggest question when it comes to Barton is where he is going to play at the next level. We traditionally hear it with smaller measurable college tackles—Rashawn Slater and Jonah Williams come to mind—and Barton fits that bill. Yes he’s 6’5, but his arms are just 32.875 inches, an ⅛ of an inch shorter than Slater’s. The former Northwestern Wildcat is able to make up for his below-average arm length with speed and an ability to mirror edges.

    Barton does struggle to block to his outside shoulder in pass protection. This is another factor that has led to multiple people questioning whether or not he’s going to be able to stick at left tackle. He doesn’t have the necessary lateral quickness to get to the outside and he can be defeated by elite hands.

    Barton struggles more when facing stand up defenders in two point stances compared to those in three or four point stances. The former Blue Devil has an inconsistent anchor against stand up edges.

    Barton’s hands do have a tendency to leak to the outside of defenders which does result in him losing some of his play strength.

    What others are saying?

    His movements and finishing skills also translate to pass protection, but he lacks ideal length and will struggle cutting off NFL speed — which is why his future is inside. -Dane Brugler, The Athletic

    Where does he project in the NFL?

    It is difficult to see Barton sticking at tackle at the next level due to everything listed above. I am in the minority that arm length isn’t as important to play tackle. However, Barton lacks the explosiveness out of his stance to play and overall lateral quickness to play the tackle position at the next level. Projecting players’ impact when moving inside is always difficult, but Barton does possess enough characteristics that will allow him to be a starting-caliber guard at the next level.

  • Report: Seahawks signing former Pro Bowl guard
    Photo by Perry Knotts/Getty Images

    Tomlinson spent the last two seasons with the New York Jets.

    The Seattle Seahawks’ Friday news dump is the addition of a veteran left guard who once made the Pro Bowl with the San Francisco 49ers.

    ESPN’s Brady Henderson reports that Laken Tomlinson has agreed to join the Seahawks on a one-year contract worth up to $4 million. The 32-year-old was released by the New York Jets, so any compensatory pick observers needn’t worry, as only unrestricted free agents factor into the formula.

    Tomlinson was drafted in the first round by the Detroit Lions in 2015. He made 24 starts over two seasons before he was traded to the San Francisco 49ers, where he played for five seasons. The 2021 season saw him make the Pro Bowl after initially being named as an alternate. Tomlinson signed with the New York Jets on a three-year contract in the 2022 offseason. He posted his two worst PFF grades in New York and allowed a career-worst seven sacks in 2023.

    From Henderson’s article:

    Tomlinson finished 34th among all guards (left or right) in pass block win rate in 2023 and ranks 27th in PBWR as a guard over the past three seasons. He has been an iron man, missing only nine offensive snaps over the past five seasons.

    Seattle has a vacancy at left guard following the departure of starter Damien Lewis in free agency. Tomlinson has played all but 65 career snaps at left guard, so he (at least for now) should have the inside track on a starting job. His tremendous durability throughout his career is a major positive. Whether he can return to something close to his best form is a different story altogether.

  • Seahawks have pre-draft visit with former Pittsburgh offensive tackle
    Photo by James Black/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

    Matt Goncalves missed almost all of his senior season with an injury.

    The Seattle Seahawks (and the rest of the NFL) have a week left to bring in draft prospects for official visits, so we should expect more names to surface over the next few days.

    According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, University of Pittsburgh tackle Matt Goncalves met with the Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys.

    It’s been an interesting career for Goncalves, who played exclusively at tackle in college. The Long Island native redshirted his freshman season, then had a truncated 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, played all 13 games in 2021 and earned third-team All-ACC honors in 2022. As a redshirt senior, Goncalves played only three games at left tackle before a season-ending big toe injury.

    Rapoport’s write-up says Goncalves is a likely Day 2 pick, but he’s a consensus Day 3 pick in most mock drafts, and The Athletic’s Dane Brugler has a fifth-round grade on him.

    SUMMARY: A four-year starter at Pittsburgh, Goncalves bounced between left and right tackle in former offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti’s balanced run-scheme. After he earned All-ACC honors as a junior, he received strong draft grades from NFL scouts in the summer but missed most of the 2023 season and draft process with a foot injury. In pass protection, Goncalves plays with controlled urgency and makes good use of his physical, independent hands, although his average athleticism and high cut, upright playing style make it tough for quick recoveries. When he bends and runs his feet, he has the drive power to create displacement in the run game. Overall, Goncalves has several skills that will translate to tackle in the NFL, but a move inside to guard as a phone-booth blocker should better accentuate his size, strength and play style. He projects as an NFL reserve who can provide depth at multiple positions.

    GRADE: 5th Round

    Goncalves is listed at 6’6 and 317 pounds with an arm length of 33 1/4” and a wing span of 81 1/4”. If we pretended the Seahawks wanted to move him to guard, his physical traits are generally in line with previous guard draft picks since 2011. Obviously his deep experience at both tackle positions give him the potential to be a T/G hybrid in the pros.

    As always, while an official visit generally indicates interest in a prospect and can sometimes lead to selection, this doesn’t automatically mean the Seahawks will draft that player. Seattle is clearly exploring as many options as it can to improve depth at the guard and tackle positions.

  • Seahawks players react to life under new head coach Mike Macdonald
    Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

    Macdonald wasted no time in making his mark on everything, from Pete Carroll’s motivational signs to the much beloved basketball hoop.

    “The biggest difference is: No basketball hoop,” said Tyler Lockett when speaking to reporters at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center on Wednesday, according to Gregg Bell of the News Tribune. Insignificant as this may sound, this is only one of the manychanges that Mike Macdonald has already implemented as the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.

    Several other star players took to the podium as well to field questions from reporters at the VMAC, and the biggest topic of conversation centered on the above-mentioned changes that Mike Macdonald is instituting. Some of these are organic changes that should be expected under any new coaching regime (e.g. schemes, terminology, etc), while others — like the absence of the basketball hoop — are catching some of the players by surprise. In addition to this, he has reportedly removed most/all of the motivational signs that were once such a fixture of Pete Carroll’s style. And the players are taking notice.

    Below are some quotes and tidbits of info that came out of yesterdays presser, as originally transcribed by Bell.


    Geno Smith spoke to his career revival under Carroll and how much their time together meant, while also acknowledging the fickle reality of the NFL.

    That day is a day I’ll probably remember forever, just because of how things happened for me here,” Smith said Wednesday. “Obviously, Coach Carroll, big influence on my career, helped me out a bunch when I came to this organization (in 2019). Really helped me, thrust me, into this spotlight that I’m in now.

    “So for me it was just kind of a terrible moment, to see someone that I love so much, having to part ways with him.”

    “But, in the NFL that’s the way things go,” he said. “And very excited for what we have here now.

    Smith went on to stress that he has experienced this before in his time with the New York Jets, and that it is important to get buy-in from the roster. Lockett elaborated on this, going on to speak to building social capital between coaches and players.

    Uchenna Nwosu provided a few solid — and honest — quotes about Macdonald’s style, noting that he has “loosened up,” recently.

    “I feel like he’s starting to loosen up now,” Nwosu said, comparing his young, rookie head coach Wednesday to his first team meeting in front of the Seahawks’ players Monday. “First day was like, you know...’I don’t know what’s going on.’ He was, kinda like, I don’t know if he was nervous, or if that’s just how he is.”

    Nwosu went on to say that he has a high-level of confidence in this roster and coaching staff to make some noise this coming season.

    “As a team, I expect a good playoff run,” Nwosu said. “We’ve been close the last two years. I feel like it’s time to really get over that hump. “We’ve got all the players. I feel like we’ve got the right coaches now.”

    Of course, team culture is important, but the goal is ultimately winning football games. The changes that are going to be on everybody’s mind in a few months will be largely focused on the X’s and O’s, to which Macdonald is expectedly installing an entirely new system.

    Julian Love referred to it as a “blank slate,” and Geno Smith extrapolated on where some of the changes are coming from.

    “Yeah,” Smith said, “everything’s brand new. It’s all new terminology. There are going to be new protections. Everything is going to be new. It’s a fresh start, as far as learning the offense. For all of us.”

    “Been watching a lot of Huskies film,” Smith said, nodding his head. “Those guys were lightin’ it up!”

    What remains to be seen is how Mike Macdonald’s style will translate to the field; as a first time head coach, we don’t have a lot to go off of regarding how his schemes will actually look, but the players are starting to provide a few more clues. Factor in how this will impact their draft strategy — along with 21 new assistant coaches — and we may see a borderline-unrecognizable team this fall. Hopefully, the most unrecognizable part will be a deep playoff run...

  • Casual Friday open thread: Where in the world is Field Gulls? (2024 edition)

    Seahawks fans, where in the world are you?

    We haven’t done a Casual Friday open thread in awhile, but we might as well get one going as we approach the NFL Draft at the end of the month.

    For newer readers: Casual Friday is an off-topic post where we generally discuss non-Seattle Seahawks things. This week’s theme is Seahawks-adjacent but has everything to do with Field Gulls.

    Every year since 2020 we have taken an informal census on where Seahawks fans/Field Gulls readers are based. Just from last year’s survey we had respondents not just from every region of the United States, but The Netherlands, Japan, Germany, South Africa, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Spain, Thailand, England, Wales, Canada, Portugal, Brazil, and many other countries.

    As a reminder: You don’t have to be super detailed as to where you are right now if you don’t want to (e.g. you live in Eastern Washington but don’t want to say you live in Spokane). feel free to chime in and we can get a clearer picture of just how much we span the country and the world.

    I’m entering year seven (!) in Oregon, just outside the city of Portland. I’ve lived close to half my life in the Pacific Northwest.

Seattle Seahawks game tickets and schedule

Generally, ticket purchases, selling tickets, and to manage and/or sell season tickets, can be done through the NFL Ticket Exchange that is facilitated by Ticketmaster. Additionally, other viable outlets for ticket sales are available. Additionally, NFL schedule, specific team schedule, and playoff tickets are provided by third party ticket outlets.

 

Sources to view an NFL live stream

The NFL is different from other major sports leagues in that most of its games are televised not on cable channels but on free over-the-air networks like Fox, CBS, and NBC, although some of these arrangements could be updated from time to time. That said, it could still take some effort to search for good deals offering an NFL live stream suited to a particular budget and might entail using a mobile app over a streaming broadcast for a wide screen television set. While it could prove challenging to find an NFL live stream portal for completely free viewing during an entire season, including playoffs, here are some options that might suit certain needs.
