  • Sucks that Finney couldn't come in and take the spot. I'll hold out hope that it clicks for him a little down the road and that his salary doesn't turn out to be a waste, seeing as he has played solid football in the past.

    However, this is definitely cause for optimism regarding Pocic. He's always had potential, and I'm excited to see how he plays at what was his best position in college.

  • With Hunt gone Pocic knows the calls better then anyone on the roster presently, he will have to hold it however, knowing the calls is important as far as Wilson not having to do both jobs and as we seen before over thinking or getting delay of game calls.

    No pre season made it tough for anyone on offense to step in, Richardson had the same problem I imagine not enough time with this offense of Schotty's which has a lot of the same but a lot of different also and the rest of the WR's had weeks of absorbing the information and walk thru's etc to get some of it down

  • No surprise Pocic named starter week 1. He's been taking all the snaps with #1 offense this year as Finney hasn't got all the tech side nailed down yet. Coaches has said multiple times they are sure FInney will be just fine, just not as the center...yet. IMO naming Pocic starter, and knowing the coaches are high on Finney may be saying more about their suspicions regarding Britt's rehab ( and asking price?) than anything else. We'll see how well Pocic holds up. If he begins doing a Hunt impersonation we'll have to move on.

    Technically the soundest Lineman in the draft by many, but he lacked bulk which I heard he has fixed and strength which I hope he has fixed, also his frame was somewhat Lanky for a Center typically, lets hope he has time to adjust to getting lower pads that caused a lot of the push back into Wilsons lap so much.

    He was being sarcastic in response to the "Wilson running for his life."

    Wilson now has a better pass blocking center than he did last year during the Hunt era, and Pocic might actually play well at center as IMHO, he's never really been given a chance. He had Cable-'tastrophe coaching, then Britt had the job.

    There are many players in the NFL that can actually play, but never get a chance because they don't practice well. I think Pete has had this problem the last 2 or 3 years as there are young players who should have been on the field more, but weren;t

    Last year it was Ugo Amadi, and Shaquem should have been out there at pass rush more often. I think he can do it with his speed, but he needs reps.

    So I'm cautiously optimistic about Pocic, thinking that he's pretty good, having played in the SEC, and all he needs is time on the field in real playing conditions.

  • He'll be just fine. He's got three years in the system and center was always his natural position. Also, his listed weight is 320, which is a fair bit more than in his rookie season (and substantially more than Joey Hunt--who seemed to struggle to stay at 300).

    I believe Pocic was around 305 at the combine and in his rookie year.

    In 2017. That was 3 years ago. The chant for Pocic has always been to wait until he gets bigger and stronger. I dont think that excuse can be made anymore.

  • Yeah once again we go in with an oline that outside of our left tackle are at best questionable pass blockers. Natural position or not he could not beat out Hunt in the past and that says alot. Until he and this oline proves otherwise after 8 years of pathetic oline pass blocking we can only presume more of the same

    On topic, hoping Pocic proves a lot of people wrong. That being said, would love to see Britt back in the mix if he's healthy enough. I'm sure many would feel a lot more comfortable with him under Center.

    Britt was seen trying out with the Packers, I think.

    The people who are down on Pocic are down on him because he didn't cut the mustard in pass protection. They're not just making that up. Him being better than Joey Hunt isn't a huge compliment.

    All I'm saying is that there is good reason to believe Pocic will perform better at center, which is his natural position. He was a very good center in college, it's his natural position on the line. He's had a good camp working at that spot. This is his best fit.

    The whole drive-by pessimism on any thread remotely involving the offensive line is weak sauce. If you feel so strongly about everybody sucking no matter what, at least offer some intelligent discourse on the topic.

  • Fingers crossed, we need the guy. It's an extremely important spot on that line. It sounds like it's his most comfortable of any on the line. Being nervous about the guy doesn't mean I think he will suck. I'm just in a wait and see mode when it comes to him that's all.

  • I'm pretty pumped about the OLine this year. We are better. Last year we had Hunt, Big Ol' Fluke who was slow, and Ifedi, the WORST RT in the NFL. So bad that he couldn't get a contract for any money.


    Pocic > Hunt, Damien Lewis > Fluker, My Mom > Ifedi


    Brock Huard: Ethan Pocic won Seahawks’ center job, B.J. Finney didn’t lose it

    Huard said he’s glad that Pocic’s time at guard is seemingly over, as it’s more of a benefit to him and the team if he is a center.

    “I think they felt like they could slide him into that guard spot, but I don’t think he can anchor, I don’t think that is the strength of his game..

    ...but at 6-foot-6-plus (and 320 pounds), he is athletic and he can get to the second level. He was dominant at (center) at LSU and I think he’s set up for some success and I would absolutely say … that he went out and took that job from a guy guaranteed nearly $5 million going in, thinking he had it in his hands.”

    Ethan is 6-foot-6, he’s long, he’s athletic, he’s got pretty good bend, but he’s not what (rookie right guard) Damien Lewis is and that’s just an unbelievable, powerful squat of 650 pounds,

    He’s kind of a nasty dude and you’re going to see this,” Brock said. “He likes to play to and through the whistle and he doesn’t mind as a center when someone’s engaged of sticking his neck and shoulder and helmet right into the ribs and sucking the oxygen out of the lungs of said defensive tackles.

    I see our typical ostrich with his head in a hole is trying to get people to ignore the obvious again. Let's get back on topic Pocic is the starting center and has shown nothing to show he can be even avg at pass blocking. Its not a pot shot twhen its true and the issue has existed for 8+years.

    And, yet I am taking pot shot to remind people he is not good in pass blocking. Naming him center is fine, but does not change the FACT we still after over 8 years have not done much to improve pass blocking to even average.

    Great he is the starter, does not mean he is good, just meanas he is betetr than a god awful Hunt. The hbest fo the worst is still the worse.

    Give it a rest. Pocic was a very good college center, let's see how he fares at his natural position.[/quotee]


    Ahh no I will not, and Pocic was blown up a lot last year in pass blocking so you give it a rest. The Fact is ethan was horrible in pass protection period


    All I'm saying is that there is good reason to believe Pocic will perform better at center, which is his natural position. He was a very good center in college, it's his natural position on the line. He's had a good camp working at that spot. This is his best fit.

    The whole drive-by pessimism on any thread remotely involving the offensive line is weak sauce. If you feel so strongly about everybody sucking no matter what, at least offer some intelligent discourse on the topic.



    again 8+ years, and we have never ranked avg in pass blocking. Till he and them prove otherwise there is no reason to believe otherwise. ts not drive by when we have been saying and, they have been proving they have been bad for 8+ years.

    Have you ever considered how big of a role scheme plays into the offensive lines underperformance? Seattle is consistently one of the longest time-to-throw offenses in the league. I'm not saying the offensive line is good - just that they're given a comparatively difficult assignment in this offense.

    Notice that whenever Seattle has implemented a quicker passing game, the offensive line woes are far less dramatic. Personally, seeing as we have a famously elusive quarterback, I'm fine with the offensive line not being the highest priority. Much of the negative effects can be mitigated.

    Even with massive investment on the line to the detriment of other positions, I'm not sure they really could ever even be top 5 with a quarterback that takes his time like Russ does (be that through his own fault or through the fault of the scheme)

    I see our two resident potshot artists are trying to get another thread Shacked. Can we get back on topic, please?


    I see our typical ostrich with his head in a hole is trying to get people to ignore the obvious again. Let's get back on topic Pocic is the starting center and has shown nothing to show he can be even avg at pass blocking. Its not a pot shot twhen its true and the issue has existed for 8+years.

  • Back to back Super Bowl appearances, while running the ball down people's throats. Those o-lines got work done. Agree to disagree that they have sucked for 8 years on that line.

    Actually I have hence why most of my ire is at PC. He refuses to run what works best and forces them to do what he wants. So ate the needs to change, or he needs to get olineman who can pass protect in his system. Yet he constantly gets olineman known as good run blockers but bad pass blocker regardless of system.

    great now imagine how many SB we would have gone to and maybe won if we were not amongst the worse pass blocking teams in the league year in and year out

  • Give the dude a chance, he might surprise us. He's our center on Sunday, so let's go get that W. We get it already, you spew the same crap about Pete, the o-line, the front office, pretty much anything Hawks related.
    Give it a rest and pull for you team. Everything sucks, they are going to win 3 games. Better?

    Go Hawks. 5 days til' we get it Rollin :irishdrinkers:
