on the first day of the draft and prepare ourselves for the inevitable taunting from Pete Carroll and his annual draft clue Tim Heitman-USA TODAY SportsYet again we land on the first day of the draft and prepare ourselves for the inevitable taunting from Pete Carroll and his annual draft clue tweets. This is basically when the Seahawks head coach Womens George Fant Jersey , as he has done for a decade now, tweets out cryptic messages — last year it was gifs, sometimes it has been music videos — on draft day to try and give fans a sense of who the team is targeting.Just once I want to figure out one of these draft clues. Are they the ramblings of a crazy person? Will you solve the Riemann Hypothesis if you figure them all out? Or maybe they are all made up crap cause Pete Carroll is the greatest internet troll ever. He never explains them, but claims there is something behind them. Here are a few recaps from 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2014.In every case we are left searching for answers, only to be teased into insanity. No one has ever won this game, but we still play it.I give you the 2019 Pete Carroll NFL Draft Twitter clues:Clue #1:He is actually laughing at us. Now I have to go back and figure out how last year was possibly Penny. What are your theories?In the first draft clue he is playing “Lean On Me” by Bill Withers. Lyrics include “call on me brother” (a reference to a sibling a la Shaquem Griffin in 2018?) and “I’m right up the road,” potentially pointing towards a draftee at Washington (Byron Murphy, Myles Gaskin?) or Washington State (Andre Dillard). But perhaps more to the point of what Seattle will probably do: “There’s always tomorrow.” Aka Day 2.Clue #2:Lyrics include “To bring some loving here today” Bryce Love, but he is not a first rounder. “Don’t punish me with brutality”, that could describe some of Taylor Rapps hits. “Simply because our hair is long” are we grabbing Chase Winovich? He is from Michigan, which leads into the Mowtown theme.Clue #3:Lyrics include, “I need love, love”, which goes back to Bryce Love, but that is too obvious and must be wrong.“But mama said you can’t hurry love,No you just have to wait”, which could mean we aren’t picking today at all, but we will take Love at a later time. “But how many heartaches” Sweat is supposedly slipping down boards with a heart condition and he is really slim.Clue #4:Lyrics include “You know I’ve done all I can, You see I begged, stole, And I borrowed” we are trading back I think. “I wanna be high, so high” or maybe we are trading up.Clue #5:Lyrics include, “Jump up and down, do anything that you wanna do!” we are trading away all of our picks to have the whole 5th round. “‘I’m gonna swing the song, yeah”, I really have no idea.Clue #6:Clue #7:Clue #8:Clue #9:All updated for posterity sake. The Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys have only met once before in the playoffs, and you know that there is but one play that everyone remembers from this 2006 wild card game.Jordan Babineaux’s touchdown-saving tackle on what could’ve been a moment of brilliance from Tony Romo ushered in the “Big Play Babs” moniker, although some of us certainly know it started a year prior.But there was a hell of a lot more to that game than just the infamous fumble. I present to you the biggest unsung heroes, the players who didn’t get talked about enough from that Saturday night in January 2007.Shaun AlexanderAlexander had only 69 yards on 24 carries and no touchdowns, and frankly if social media was as popular back then as it is now, there would be tweets aplenty about Mike Holmgren’s “establishing the run” failures. However, look a little deeper and you’ll find that Shaun had three pivotal second-half carries.Down only 10-6 in the third quarter, Holmgren eschewed conservative “kick another field goal” thinking twice on the same drive. He went for it on 4th and inches at the Dallas 31, and Shaun ran behind Mack Strong to the right side for four yards to keep the series moving. Faced with 4th and inches again at the Dallas 18 Chris Carson Jersey Green , Shaun was the single back, and he was able to just get to the corner before Bobby Carpenter for three more yards. Next play? Touchdown, Jerramy Stevens and a 13-10 lead (that would be gone on the ensuing kickoff).Following the Romo fumble, Seattle was backed up at its own 2-yard line and needing to run the clock out. Dallas had all of its timeouts left with 1:14 to go, so a three-and-out would’ve been disastrous, a safety loses you the game. Alexander rips off a 20-yard dash and makes all of that moot. By the time the Cowboys get the ball back, there’s only two seconds on the clock, and it should’ve been none if not for Ryan Plackemeier’s shank out of bounds.Jerramy StevensLet me get this out of the way by saying I feel uncomfortable putting Jerramy Stevens as a hero of anything, but for one night only, he balled out.On a night when not much was working for the Seahawks offense, Stevens was the top performer. He had five catches for 77 yards and the only multi-touchdown game of his entire Seahawks career. In fact, those 77 yards are the second-most of his entire NFL career. The second TD of the game represented Seattle’s winning points, and what a kickass play this was.This is the last time I’ll ever say nice things about Jerramy Stevens.Kelly JenningsSpeaking of bad Seahawks players having a major impact on the game, it was actually rookie CB Kelly Jennings who got Seattle’s fourth-quarter comeback started! After a failed 4th and goal at the 2, the Cowboys took over on downs. Tony Romo threw a quick out to Terry Glenn, who stumbled moving forward, regathered his balance, only for Jennings to swoop in and force the fumble. Initially, this was ruled a touchdown recovery by Michael Boulware, but Lofa Tatupu was out of bounds when he “saved” the ball from going out of the end zone. So it was officially a safety, cutting the deficit to 20-15, and setting up the winning TD to Stevens.Jennings had notoriously bad ball skills, but this was one of the few great plays of his disappointing Seahawks career.Pete HunterNot totally dissimilar to the 2018 Seahawks secondary, but the ‘06 team was banged up. I mean really banged up. It was so bad that they signed former Cowboys DB Pete Hunter, a street free agent who was a loan officer in Dallas, to be a part of the playoff team. “Pete the loan officer” recovered a Jason Witten fumble in Seahawks territory in the first quarter, and knocked down the Hail Mary pass thrown by Romo on the oft-forgotten actual last play of the game.Hunter actually picked off Rex Grossman the following week against the Chicago Bears, so he made the most of what would be his final two games in the NFL.Lofa TatupuHis injury-riddled career was short, but Lofa was the Bobby Wagner of the Holmgren-era Seahawks defense. Remember those Lofa vs. Patrick Willis debates? I do. Anyway, if Tatupu doesn’t stop Jason Witten short of the first down — the officials overturned the call on video replay — the Cowboys could’ve drained the clock all the way down and kicked the winning field goal with no time left, and there’s no guarantee the Romo fumble still happens under these circumstances.Defend every blade of grass.Here we are in 2019, and this time the Seahawks are the road team, but the game is also in primetime, where Seattle has excelled under Pete Carroll. While I could do without a dramatic ending like what we saw 12 years ago, all I want is the same final result of a Seahawks win.
