Week 17: Seahawks Finish Strong

It was a long, difficult road to victory.  But in the end, the 2012 Seahawks did what they do best – win.  The Seahawks fought hard from a 10-3 deficit in the first half and rallied to beat the St. Louis Rams in their final game of the regular season, 20-13. The victory was capped […]

Week 17: Rams at Seahawks (Game Thread and News & Notes)

  Here’s hoping all of you are having a great time over the holidays — I’ve spent most of this week pinballing from one family gathering to the next.  Really though, with the Seahawks playing as well as they are right now, someone could drop a Buick on my leg and I’d still think this […]

Week 16 – Seahawks Win! (R-Rated Thread)

Christmas came two days early this year, as the Seahawks just clinched a playoff berth with a 42-13 blowout win over the 49ers.  There was a lot to love in this game, but watching Harbaugh grimace his way through four quarters of an agonizing loss to his former Pac-12 rival Pete Carroll was definitely the […]

Sherman’s hearing to be held on friday

The timing of Richard Sherman's appeal – Mike Sando No word yet on if a decision will come down that day or be pushed out further.  I can see the league holding off until Monday on a decision to protect the brand for the Sunday primetime game. I do not see the Hawks being very […]

Week 15 – Seahawks Win! (R-Rated Thread)

Three rushing touchdowns by Wilson, 2.5 sacks by Clemons, a pick-six by Thomas, and 11.3 yds/att for Lynch.  Add it up, and you get a crushing 50-17 win in which the only real blemish was Hauschka getting blocked on a point-after try. Right now I can't even begin to put into words how much I'm […]

Week 15: Seahawks at Bills (well, at Toronto, anyway) (Game Thread)

WR Deon Butler was signed to the roster to fill Charly Martin's role as the fifth wide receiver on the active roster, but he's been listed as inactive for the game.  And as expected, Walter Thurmond has joined Marcus Trufant as an injury scratch on the sideline along with CB DeShawn Shead.  The four cornerbacks […]

A Weekend of Encouragement

It's a damn good time to be a Seahawk fan. After an inspiring Week 14 victory over a Cardinals team who appeared to quit in every aspect of how anyone could ever define the word, the New England Patriots unleashed hell on an opponent who was supposed to put up a damn good fight. They […]
