12th Man Rising:
Or don’t actually. Build him up so someone else can overpay for him. Just don’t expect the Seahawks to move up for Robert Griffin III. While anything is possible, there’s simply too much evidence available that suggests it simply won’t even be considered by the Seahawks.
By now you’ve already read all about John Schneider’s Green Bay background and trade down philosophy. I wont spend much time on that here since it’s already well known and well documented. The one thing I would add on this topic is that there’s no reason why he’d want to give up on this philosophy now. The last 2 drafts have seen Schneider draft pro-bowl level talent late in the draft.

When Pete Carroll brought you in to replace Matt Hasselbeck, fans were unimpressed. You didn’t really do anything worthwhile when you were the starting quarterback in Minnesota, even playing terrible at times. An average NFL fan’s perspective of you was a young...
I didn't write this up as a blog post on the Seahawks blog mainly because I wasn't sure how to get all my thoughts into an article today. I just mainly wanted to sum up most of the season in point form. Figured this was the better spot for it.
The Seahawks finished at 7-9 and out of the playoffs.
I am of the opinion that the season was not a total loss, as...
The Seattle Seahawks announced another addition to the team’s 80-man roster, signing running back Tyrell Sutton to a future contract. Seahawks general manager John Schneider is familiar with Sutton; he was in Green Bay when the Packers signed the running back out of Northwestern as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2009. Sutton was released during final cuts, and signed with Carolina...
