RENTON — It’s awfully hard to hear Marshawn Lynch over the boom-boom-boom of the bass in his headphones.
But it’s important to listen when the Seahawks running back speaks, because he doesn’t do it in group settings often. And he offered on Wednesday a frank, optimistic assessment of the Seahawks struggling rushing offense.
Lynch has 46 carries for 141 yards this season, hardly the kind of numbers Seahawks fans hoped for after Lynch’s breakout game against the New Orleans Saints in the playoffs last season.
“If it was a cheat code, we wouldn’t be having this conversation right now,” Lynch said when asked about a solution to the problem.
But that was the only hint frustration over Seattle’s lack of success in that department that Lynch displayed Wednesday. He praised the offensive line for improving markedly from Week 1 to Week 4, said he doesn’t feel the no-hud...

1. Marshawn Lynch
Marshawn Lynch is overrated. If it weren’t for his ridiculous touchdown run (and some poor Saints tackling) in the 2010 NFC playoffs, most people would not remember what team he was on. In 16 games with the Seahawks, he is averaging a measly 3.4 yards per carry behind an offensive line that doesn’t do him many favors. But you can’t take any opponent for granted...
Pete Carroll wants the Seattle Seahawks to be able to run the football, knowing that an effective ground game is what makes play-action passing successful.
But through four games, Seattle has the fewest rushing attempts of any team in the league and fewer yards gained on the ground than everyone expect the Tennessee Titans. Leading rusher Marshawn Lynch has only 141 yards rushing...

I had the opportunity to exchange with Keith over at FanSided’s Seattle Seahawks blog 12th Man Rising.Here are the questions Keith had for GMENHQ about Sunday’s game: 1) Osi and Tuck seem to be the keys to making this defense work. If either don’t play or are limited because of their injuries, how can the Giants still create pressure on Tarvaris Jackson?Two of the best veteran...
RENTON -- Pete Carroll doesn't just expect the best-case scenario, he relies upon it.
He's willing to err on the side of optimism even if it costs his team points.
And it has.
But this has nothing to do with Steven Hauschka's 61-yard field-goal attempt on Sunday against Atlanta. That's only the latest example of end-of-the-half play-calling that could be charitably...

from The Olympian:
“I asked how many of our guys have played in New York,” Carroll told reporters this week. “And a few guys raised their hands, and I said, ‘Well, we’re playing in New Jersey.’ ”
“No matter what sport you’re in, when you play in New York it’s a cool thing,” Carroll said. “It just always has been because of the great history and the tradition...
I don’t see it the same way, that he has struggled. I say they have played some teams that have made hard nights for him. The other night was a ridiculously challenging defense that they went up against. I thought he was battling like crazy and I know he wants to be cleaner in the numbers and they start to add up a bit, but just like he has in the past, he will bounce back and...
