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 […]

Upset Central: Is the NFC West the Toughest Division in Football?

Yes, you read that headline right.  And, brace yourselves – the following sentences are recaps of NFC West team achievements after two weeks of regular-season action, and contain no typos: The Cardinals beat the New England Patriots on the road.   The Rams upset the new-look Washington Redskins. Last week, the 49ers shocked the Green […]

Week 1: Cardinals 20, Seahawks 16

Well, that wasn’t quite what we expected.  Russell Wilson’s first half left much to be desired, though he did bounce back and have a nice second half — and incredible field position thanks to the kick return prowess of Leon Washington. But where was the red zone offense? Where were the conversion opportunities? And where […]

Four Players Making Final Cuts a Tough Decision

File this under “Good problems to have” for the Seahawks going into the 2012 season: So many players are performing at such a high level, that it’ll be hard for Pete Carroll, John Schneider and the rest of the team’s brass to decide who to keep.  With the first round of cuts already happening, giving […]

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 […]

Preseason Game 1: Seahawks 27, Titans 17

Through consistent defense and solid QB play, the Seahawks have orchestrated a 27-17 victory over the visiting Tennessee Titans. Excellent way to start the year, though some aspects of the team still need to be fully worked out. (And I expect nothing less from the first preseason game.)  Post your reactions here, 12th man. This […]

Preseason Game 1: Halftime

Well, we couldn’t have asked for a much better first play to open the year, could we? CB Brandon Browner grabbed a bobbled pass to Titans TE Jared Cook and returned it for a touchdown, making this arguably the flashiest start to a Seahawks season that I can remember. The throw, ironically, was from none […]

Observations from Camp: July 28, 2012

As of today, the wait is over.  The past several months that have comprised the 2012 NFL offseason have perhaps been no more intriguing as they’ve been for the Seattle Seahawks. For a team that began the year 2-6 and showed very little signs of life, only to finish out the second half of the […]

Seahawks Training Camp Opens Today

Finally, the wait is over. We’re just 90 minutes away from the opening of Bing Training Camp 2012 at VMAC, and I’ll be in attendance to make observations and take photos. So many questions about this team, this year. Can anyone remember a time when there was more excitement, more optimism and generally more buzz […]

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. […]

Clemons, Seahawks Still in Talks

Rumblings from several sources concerning the Chris Clemons contract situation have not been in short supply recently. By now, we all know Clemons is one of the team’s hardest workers, posting two consecutive seasons where he notched 11 sacks. For a guy who was largely unheralded and undervalued in Philadelphia, where he played with the […]

Winslow Looks to Add Firepower to Hawks’ Offense

A couple of months ago when Pete Carroll and John Schneider brought in free agent tight end Visanthe Shiancoe for a visit, I was all but convinced the Seahawks would be signing him to a deal soon after. Everything about Shiancoe, the former Viking, seemed like a logical fit into Seattle’s offense — He was […]

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. […]
