Preseason Week 2: Position Battles Rage On

This week, Tom Cable sat down with reporters and talk show hosts and said guards JR Sweezy and James Carpenter have a chance to be the best guard tandem in the NFL. The comment took us all by surprise, especially since this offensive line has largely been regarded as the one weak spot on an otherwise […]

Broncos 21, Seahawks 16: Shaking off the Rust

The first preseason game of the year is never pretty. Last night at Denver was no exception. To paraphrase what Pete Carroll said in his post-game comments, some of these guys have only been with the team for two or three weeks. And some of those guys included de facto starters, such as Eric Winston […]

Offseason Update and Talking points

Today, the Seahawks are holding their rookie minicamp, and that means a lot of things.  For one, it means we have an actual offseason to look forward to this year.  Most years that wouldn’t be much of a reason for celebration, but after last season’s protracted lockout during the collective bargaining agreement negotiations I doubt […]

The Next Great Player Out Of Seattle

In 2013, Byron Maxwell stepped up on defense to fill in for the suspended Brandon Browner. Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, and Richard Sherman are just a few from 2012. In 2014, expect a breakout year from one of Seattle’s 4th round draft picks. Cassius Marsh is a player that comes into Seattle with tremendous talent. […]

Seahawks’ RB-by-Committee is a Win-Win Situation

In the past, fans have accused Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell of being too predictable, too bland. But if fans saw this week’s announcement coming, they might be forced to rethink those accusations. Speaking Wednesday night at the Seahawks’ Town Hall event, Bevell told the crowd of fans that the team would be switching to […]

NFC West: First-Round Predictions

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to prime time. That time is fast approaching. These days, the months of hype and scrutiny leading up to this point almost outweigh the event itself. Hell, it even got its very own feature film. If nothing else, one has to stand back in awe of the marketing ability of the […]

Marshawn Lynch Doesn’t Owe the Media Anything

He sat uncomfortably in front of a room full of reporters. Microphones were jabbed in his face. Invasive questions were rolled out with reckless abandon. He shifted nervously in his seat. His Pro Bowl fullback stood to his left, offering a friendly smile with a tape recorder. It’s a known fact by now that Marshawn […]

Week 17: Back to Seattle Football

Golden Tate wasn't about to let any taunting come back to haunt him.  Throughout today's regular-season finale at Century Link Field, the St. Louis Rams were determined to make Tate pay for his taunting penalty he incurred late in the two teams' last meeting. There was constantly chippy play – a staple of this divisional […]

SEA @ CAR: Money, Meet Mouth

It's time to put the hype to the ultimate test. Or, at least, the first test of many.  The Seahawks open the season today on the road against the Carolina Panthers. These two teams are young, hungry, and talented, making the matchup extremely intriguing for the first game of a season coming with huge expectations. […]

Camp Report: Five Players Flying Under the Radar

With training camp in full swing, the Seahawks had their first day of sloppy weather on the practice field Friday afternoon. That didn't stop the fans from filling the berm at VMAC and showing the regular amount of enthusiasm that's always prevalent with the 12th Man.  First impressions from this day of camp were a […]

Wilson Nominated for ESPY Award

Our very own Russell Wilson has been nominated for an ESPY award for "Best Breakthrough Athlete" for 2012.  Voting ends at 9 p.m. EST tonight, July 17. Get to it, 12th Man.  As an added bit of motivation, let me add that Colin Kaepernick is also up for the award in the same category.  The […]

Pete Carroll: Tarvaris “Tremendously Tough”

With the Hawks bringing back former starting QB Tarvaris Jackson yesterday on a 1-year deal, Pete Carroll wasted no time in singing the veteran's praises:  “We’re a little better than we were in those days,” Carroll said. “So we bring Tarvaris back with the thought that he’ll make this a really competitive situation. He’ll compete […]

Take Back T-Jax: Why the Seahawks Should Re-sign Our Most Polarizing QB

Since our most polarizing former QB, Tarvaris Jackson, was released by the Buffalo Bills yesterday, a small eruption of controversy has resulted amongst Seahawk fans.  One side of the fanbase is ready to welcome T-Jax back with open arms. His 2011 season, in which he was the Seahawks' starter, was his best as a pro, […]

And with the 87th Pick, the Seahawks Take…

….Jordan Hill, defensive tackle, Penn State.  Hold your Sandusky jokes. This guy looks like Brandon Mebane, and plays like him, too – Hill stands at 6'1", weighs 303 pounds, has 33 1/2-inch arms, and is only 22 years old.  Talk about upside? This guy has it. Taken from the Penn State Athletics' website:  Jordan Hill […]

I Have a Case of the Pre-Draft Crazies

Good god, it's one day away from the draft.  Every year, the NFL draft never fails to be one of the most entertaining and orgiastic stretches of time that football fans can possibly imagine. It makes us burst with joy at the seams watching the last-minute trades, the from-out-of-nowhere gambles, the late-round sleepers….it's enough to […]
