Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch set the standard for what is known as "beast mode".What it means is that a runner is running with such ferocity and power, that the very Earth trembles beneath it every time they carry the ball.I chose those words on purpose, because for me the first time I saw Lynch go "beast mode" was in a Wild Card playoff game following the 2010 season between Seattle and the New Orleans Saints.This game was a "one for the ages" that really, on paper, should not have been close at all.Seattle became the first team to ever win their division with a below .500 final win-loss record (7-9).Due to the way the playoffs are set up, the eleven win Saints had to travel to Seattle to play the game, because Seattle was a division winner and New Orleans was a runner-up (to the Falcons) in their division.Late in the game, Lynch decided to score a touchdown. I mean, he really just must have said to himself, "I am going to score, m...

This was a great play that was drawn up, and pretty much everyone on the defense bit on the wide receiver screen. The execution was even more impressive and while it wasn’t the greatest throw of all-time, Seahawks TE Zach Miller made a hell of a catch off the pass from Sidney Rice. It’s just a shame that this one didn’t go for six, otherwise it would be the play of the day.Via: SB Nation
The Seattle Seahawks have announced Tuesday that wide receiver Charly Martin has been released.
Martin had only four catches for 42 yards this season. He primarily played on special teams. With a spot open on the roster in mind, note that cornerback Walter Thurmond has been back in practice the last two weeks after being on the PUP list. Thurmond broke his left leg last October...
Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson racked up an amazing 182 yards rushing Sunday against the Seahawks.Fantasy Spin:With his two touchdowns on Sunday Peterson now has six scores for the season. Over his last three games, he's piled up 458 yards for an average of 153 rushing yards per contest.
When the Seattle Seahawks are at home they are almost impossible to beat, because those fans and players realize they play extremely well at home. Russell Wilson looks like a probowler when he plays at home as well. Russell Wilson completed 16-of-24 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns versus the Vikings in Week 9. Wilson found Golden Tate for scores for six and 11 yards and...
[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 for the Vikings game.]
The Seahawks’ pass coverage against the Lions was ugly, and looking at it on...
Run-stuffing defensive end Red Bryant and linebacker Leroy Hill will both be game-time decisions for the Seattle Seahawks entering Sunday's big NFC matchup at Chicago.
Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Bryant was held out of practice for a third straight day with a foot injury. Hill went through a workout to test his sore ankle, but how the injury responds will determine if...

Last week the offense played well enough to win, but the defense gave the game away. This week the offense held the ball for 1o minutes and 53 seconds of the fourth quarter, including the final 5:27, where they converted on two 4th downs, to put the game away.
In all fairness, the defense tightened up...
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 torn about cutting Martin. He isn'...
It appears that Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate is putting together a solid game against the Minnesota Vikings as he already have two touchdowns.
Check out his second score as he flips over a Vikings defender:

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 when it needed to most, thanks in large part to a good performance by Russell Wilson...
Seattle returned home to end a two-game losing streak, while the Cardinals once promising season continues to slip away.
