''We're not going to force guys back out there until they're ready to play.'' Unger has a triceps injury suffered last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was checked by trainers on the sideline but rem...

Can the Lions Continue to Win Without Lulay?

Percy Harvin’s Debut Could Be Delayed By Seahawks’ Success

How the Seahawks Measure Up: 2013 Week Three Edition

If there's one thing that's always bugged me about the Seahawks teams Pete Carroll has put together over the last few years, it's been their maddening tendency at times to play down to the level of their competition.  In 2011, they beat the 12-4 Ravens and the eventual Super Bowl champion Giants, but lost to a middling Cowboys team and a 5-11 Redskins team led by Rex...

Week 4 Endgame: The blueprint for victory – Texans vs. Seahawks

Seahawks go for 4-0 Game in and game out the Seattle Seahawks‘ biggest obstacle will be themselves.  I don’t know what it is about this team, whether it’s over-confidence or Pete Carroll’s preaching about not being able to lose a game in the 1st quarter, but they always start slow.
