What We Know, and What We Can Guess – Seahawks Draft 2014

“With the 32nd pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Seattle Seahawks select…” This would be a good bet for Vegas to put out there because no one would win. Look back at the last few drafts and it’s easy to see why. In 2011, we selected James Carpenter. In 2012, it was Bruce Irvin. […]

The Aftermath of Free Agency

The first and second waves of NFL free agency have come and gone. The dust has finally settled, players have found their homes, and now the NFL is dead silent. The Seattle Seahawks, meanwhile, have added depth to the team by way of offensive guard Stephen Schilling. Wait, that’s it? That’s all they’ve have done? […]

Training Camp Battles – 2013 Edition

Tomorrow, the VMAC will come alive once again. The echo of screeching whistles, crashing pads, and hip-hop music will fill the air as training camp opens the gates to 2013 NFL season. The team enters camp with perhaps the most stacked roster in their history. For the first time in the Pete Carroll/John Schneider regime, […]

American Football Themed Casino Games

For American football fans, fall can’t come too soon as they await the start of yet another football season. With rosters tentatively set and coaching staffs formed, fans simply can’t wait to see how the teams do as they hit the gridiron for another action packed season. With time to pass until that, football fans […]

2013 Draft – With the 194th pick, the Seahawks select…

…runningback Spencer Ware from LSU. At 5'10" and 228lbs, Ware is your definition of a "thumper". What he lacks in speed and quickness, he makes up in size and strength. He is different from Christine Michael and Robert Turbin in that he openly looks to make contact with defenders, racking up his yards after contact […]

The Draft, The Combine, and Alec Ogletree

For roughly two weeks now we’ve been sitting in a rut known as the “dead season”. There is nothing of major interest going on in the NFL right now. (Note: At the time I was writing this, Richard Sherman’s Twitter war with Darrelle Revis had not yet occurred.) The next event on the list is […]

Prideful or Shameful Win? One Answer

A night that was supposed to go down in history as one of the greatest regular season finshes ever has been clouded in drama and controversy. Everywhere you turned on Tuesday morning was a debate over the final play of last night’s thrilling victory (or is it, say the so-called experts) over Green Bay. It […]

Tarvaris Jackson Trade Rumors

Three weeks into training camp, it appears as though the three-way quarterback competition is finally winding down. Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson appear to be front-runners for the starting gig while Tarvaris Jackson is presumably the odd-man out. This shouldn’t be alarming at all. What might be surprising, however, is the fact that Jackson has […]

Final Public Practice – Observations

Notable Points Judging from this practice alone, Matt Flynn is the clear-cut favorite to start in week 1 of the regular season. Flynn, as advertised, showed crispness in his mechanics and his accuracy was top-notch, (only 3 incompletions during the entire practice). He often checked down short passes rather than airing it out deep, but […]

Training Camp Battle – Wide Receivers 2012

The start of training camp is in just a few days and will feature an abundance of intriguing storylines and positional battles. The most competitive position battle that this particular camp has to offer is at wide receiver. 12 players each with different skillsets and qualities will vie for 5-6 roster spots. Who will make […]

Diamond in the Rough – Undrafted Rookies 2012

When Pete Carroll and John Schneider were given the keys to the organization, they made a commitment to make each transaction with a definitive purpose – to improve their roster with each roster change. They value each draft pick as well as each free agent signing they make. The same goes for undrafted free-agent signings. […]

Seahawks Trade for TE Kellen Winslow

Per Mike Sando of ESPN, the Seahawks have agreed to a trade with Tampa Bay for tight end Kellen Winslow. Trade details to follow as it is made available. Winslow gives the Seahawks a talented pass-catching tight end that can situationally be used as a blocker. He is 29, giving the offense a veteran presence. […]

The often forgotten bunch..

The NFL draft has passed, with the first round turning out quite differently than we all expected (Seriously, Bruce Irvin? I doubt anyone saw that one coming). We had the luxury of making 10 total picks this year. But what is often forgotten is that there are undrafted free agents that are still available, some […]
