Charly Martin Released

Earlier today, the Seahawks released wide receiver Charly Martin.  It's presumed that the move was made in order to make room for cornerback Walter Thurmond, but Thurmond still hasn't been officially activated off of the physically unable to play list. As much as I like the idea of having Thurmond available again, I'm a bit […]

Calling All App Users

Since I took over the site last year, the only feedback I've ever heard about the Seahawk Addicts app has been in emails from people who have nothing but complaints of one sort or another with the program.  So, the other day I mentioned in a comment thread that I was thinking about removing the […]

The Seahawks’ Coverage Problems versus the Lions

[Note: This article was supposed to go up late last week, but due to other concerns it had to go unfinished until now.  But while the subject matter is a bit past tense, if nothing else I figured it’d serve as a nice frame of reference when I take a look at the game tape […]

Week 9 – Seahawks Win! (R-Rated Thread)

Adrian Peterson is a hell of a running back (losing K.J. Wright early hurt the run defense in a big way), but it's hard to win games when your quarterback only manages to throw for 62 yards. More importantly, the Seahawks offense was able to overcome some bad drops early on and move the chains […]

Week 9: Vikings at Seahawks (Game Thread)

This afternoon, the Seahawks begin the second half of their schedule with a home game against the Vikings.  A win for Seattle is likely, but by no means assured.  Minnesota has plenty going its way right now with QB Christian Ponder, WR Percy Harvin, and RB Adrian Peterson all playing well this year on offense, […]

Reflections at 4-4

Louis Bacigalupi posts comments on the site as LouieLouie.  He’s an accountant by trade and worked in a USFL front office.  He can be reached by email at Before the regular season began, I hoped the Seahawks could be 4-4 halfway through the season.  They could have very well been 3-5, or 2-6 — […]

Kearse In, Obomanu Out

The news this week, aside from "what the hell is going on in the middle of the defense" (more on that tomorrow), is that WR Ben Obomanu has been placed on injured reserve after breaking his wrist in Detroit.  To replace him, WR Jermaine Kearse has been activated off the practice squad.  Kearse has some […]

A Night at the Movies with Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch has rapidly climbed up the walls of sports infamy in the past year, taking his earned moniker of "Beast Mode" to the next level with a career revitalization with the Seahawks since being acquired from the Bills via trade in 2010.  But last year, without many fans taking notice, he slipped into another […]

Week 8 – Seahawks Lose (R-Rated Thread)

Wilson completed over 70% of his passes to nine different receivers and scored two touchdowns.  Lynch rushed for over 100 yards and a TD.  Calvin Johnson was held to just three receptions.  Had it not been for an incredible performance by  Titus Young (raise your hand if you thought he was capable of 9 catches […]

Week 8: Seahawks at Lions (Game Thread)

The Seahawks will be playing their fifth road game of the season today against the Lions.  Will Richard Sherman and the rest of the secondary be able to contain Calvin Johnson and Brandon Pettigrew? Can Wilson and his receivers put up some points against a suspect Lions secondary?  Does Detroit have enough healthy defenders left […]

A Few Reasons to Look Forward to the Lions Game

The injury report this week paints one hell of a picture, one that’s somewhat bad for the Seahawks but potentially disastrous one for the Lions.  (In the interest of saving the best for last, I've put the worst of the news first.) Doug Baldwin suffered a high ankle sprain in the first half of last […]

A Tale of Two Halves

Last Thursday’s road game against the 49ers was supremely frustrating to watch.  The Seahawks looked awful, and that’s led to a lot of fans voicing opinions of the “fire coach X and/or bench player Y” variety.  That’s understandable, but I think it’s premature to be calling for changes that drastic.  Right now, the Seahawks are […]

Week 7 – Seahawks Lose (R-Rated Thread)

Damn it. The Seahawks’ defense rattled Smith, which is good, but Wilson completed just 36.36% of his passes for barely over 100 yards.  His receivers have a big share in the blame for that (they allowed multiple passes to bounce off their hands), but the rookie QB still has a habit of putting his o-linemen in […]

Beating the 49ers at Their Own Game (and Week 7 Game Thread)

Last week, the Giants showed everyone that the only thing you need to beat the 49ers’ physical, intimidating, opportunistic team is to have a physical, intimidating, opportunistic team of your own with a better quarterback.  Here’s some specifics on what the Seahawks can learn from New York’s road victory so that they can pull off […]

How the Seahawks Measure Up: Week 6 Edition

There were no surprises in the game versus New England.  The Patriots are the top-ranked offense in the NFL, and they were able to move the chains against the Seahawks’ defense.  But despite all the yardage they gained, they had difficulty finishing off drives with touchdowns.  Through their first five games, New England averaged 33 […]
