Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Thursday, November 5 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Greg Jennings Talks DK Metcalf's Ascension and Russell Wilson's Stellar Season On 'Brock & Salk' Podcast
From his incredible pick-6 saving, chase-down tackle of Budda Baker on Sunday Night Football two weeks ago, to last Sunday’s career game in which he recorded 12 catches for 161 yards and two scores, the NFL world has certainly been buzzing about DK Metcalf recently.
The second-year wideout seems to make at least a couple of eye-popping plays every weekend, and currently ranks fourth in the league in receiving yards (680), fourth in yards per game (97.1), first in yards per reception (18.9), and is tied for the league lead in receiving touchdowns (7) alongside Adam Thielen, Mike Evans, Davante Adams, Tyreek Hill, and teammate Tyler Lockett.
On Wednesday, former Packers wide receiver and current FOX NFL analyst Greg Jennings spoke about the strides Metcalf has made in his second season on 710 ESPN's 'Brock & Salk' podcast. Jennings also compares Tyler Lockett to a couple of former NFL receivers, and showed some love to MVP frontrunner Russell Wilson, considering him a Hall of Fame caliber quarterback — which he may know a thing or two about, considering he caught pases from the likes of Brett Favre in Green Bay.
You can listen to the full podcast episode here. Read a few highlights below:
On DK Metcalf's potential & how far his ascension can go:
"It can go as high and as far as he wants it to go, and I believe he wants to be one of the best to ever do it at that position. He obviously has the ability, the unique talent and skillset. And when you watch him from last year and his progression, his maturation of becoming more confident in route running. Being a bigger guy and understanding, 'I'm just going to out-man and physically abuse any defender or opposition that tries to impede me from doing what I want to do.' You see it on the field. His ability to just be un-human is just unfair."
On what it would've been like to play with Russell Wilson:
"Man, Russell, he's special. And I had some really good quarterbacks, Hall of Famers, Russell Wilson is a Hall of Famer. He is literally historically great. You look at his numbers, from day one, he's been great. He's been excellent. He's always done it the way you would want — a young quarterback controlling the game, not turning the ball over, kind of methodically doing just enough to show you, okay, yup, he can manage a game. Yup, he can take over a game, now, in year two and three. Yup, he can just take it and we can put the team on his back in what we're seeing this year. That's what you want in a quarterback, that's what the Seahawks have."
Seahawks Legends Hold 'Chalk Talk' Sessions With Local High School Coaches
Like many things, high school football has been put on hold this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to alleviate some of the disappointment caused by missing out on one of our favorite fall traditions, the Seahawks have organized 'Chalk Talk' sessions with local high school football coaches, giving them the opportunity to gain insights and tips straight from Seahawks Legends through casual, informative and fun conversations.
Recently, we held a Chalk Talk session focused on offense. Seahawks Legends like Jim Zorn, Curt Warner, Ben Obomanu, Robbie Tobeck and Hall of Famers Steve Largent and Walter Jones imparted their knowledge on topics like training for the season, staying prepared, and position-specific tips like pass protection techniques and how to teach running back vision. Here's a look at one of the sessions:
There will be a Chalk Talk session focused on defense later this month.
