Despite the fact that the Seahawks blew out the 49ers for the second straight year at Century Link Field, head coach Pete Carroll wasn’t too happy with hos his offense played.
“I’m kind of concerned overall on offense that we just aren’t as sharp as we need to be,” Carroll said via ESPN.com. “We addressed it [Monday] as far as details and doing things right. We’re just not as clean as we want to be.
“There’s a lot of potential to be shown. Our efficiency isn’t where we want it. We had too many negative plays [Sunday]. I’m a little disappointed in that, because we thought we came out of camp a little better.”
Carroll believes offensive penalties have really hurt them.
“I think that has a lot to do with it,’’ Carroll said. “We’ve hurt ourselves. We had nine penalties on offense [Sunday in the 29-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers]. It’s really hard to find rhythm that way. We had a 24-yard play [on which there was a penalty) and end up not going anywhere. He had first-and-27 one time in the game. It’s crazy.’’
Carroll says they’ll continue to work on being more consistent.
“We addressed this consistently, but we’ve not seen the results that we want,” Carroll said. “So we have some new ideas to see if we can get some cleaner execution and get out of our own way.”

With Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch running wild and powering over defenses and Russell Wilson’s ability to sprint outside of the pocket for massive yards, it is easy to overlook the Seahawks’ backup running back, Robert Turbin. You might yell “who” at the top of your lungs after reading that name, but Turbin, the fourth round draft pick from...
The home-field advantage is one of the better-known aspects in all of sports. Numbers continuously show that playing in your home stadium produces positive results. Many factors can be attributed to this notion, whether it is the comfort of sleeping in your own bed the night before a big game, or merely the familiarity with the nooks and crannies of your home-field. Another undeniable...
In SNF's evisceration / division home game held serve with authority where Seattle curb-stomped San Francisco, there was an utterly lovely moment for those of us who had Seattle plus the points.

The NFL is a "what have you done for me lately" type of league. The Seattle Seahawks did a lot for us on Sunday night, leaving many who to overreact by calling them the Super Bowl favorites, asserting Richard Sherman as the NFL’s best cornerback, and claiming Jim Harbaugh is an idiot.
But is this defense unbeatable? Better yet, is it the same on the road?

If the Seattle Seahawks are going to cover the gigantic 19.5 point spread against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday they're going to have to do it without starting left tackle Russell Okung. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced on Wednesday that Okung won't be playing against the Jaguars.

Usually week three of the NFL season isn’t a time we talk about “trap games,” but the Jacksonville Jaguars are just that bad, and the Seattle Seahawks are just that good. Still, we can’t ignore a few key factors that may favor the Jaguars against head coach Gus Bradley’s former team.
To start, no, the Jaguars probably won’t be able to beat the Seahawks in the loudest...
