Found April 07, 2014 on cover32 - Seahawks:
The old adage goes that the middle or inside linebacker is the quarterback of the defense. They get the play calls from the sidelines and are responsible for relaying that information to their teammates and making sure everybody is on the same page. It’s arguably the most important position on the defense. If you want a great example of how vital a middle linebacker is, take a look at the Cowboys vs. Saints game from Sunday Night Football this past season. Sean Lee of the Cowboys went down with an injury in the middle of the game and the rest was pure chaos. Drew Brees and his receivers absolutely torched Dallas en route to a 49-17 win. They also managed 242 rushing yards, so they basically got anything they wanted on offense. There’s no overstating how big a capable middle linebacker is in today’s NFL. The Seahawks are extremely fortunate that they have one of the best and youngest at the position in Bobby Wagner. Any chance I get when I go on the radio to talk about the Seahawks I...

Power Rankings: Are Seattle Seahawks still No. 1 in offseason midpoint edition?

Not all of the moves have been made, but most of them are in the books. Players have come and gone, as teams tinker with their rosters, looking to fill holes and upgrade in key positions. Some have tried to make a big splash, while others have been more conservative. Some have simply tried to retain their own players, while others have gone about overhauling a big chunk of their...

Earl Thomas hints that big news may be coming

The number one priority for the Seattle Seahawks front office right now has to be getting contract extensions for Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman. They anchor the best defense in the league and have spawned a legion of copy-cat secondaries this offseason throughout the NFL. New Orleans has added Jairus Byrd and Champ Bailey, Denver picked up Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward, and New England...

Watch downtown Seattle go nuts after Super bowl win

I thought that sharing videos of Super bowl celebrations might get old two months after the fact. I was wrong. It never gets old, because we won the friggin Super bowl and I intend to gloat over it until at least the start of the 2014 NFL season. Previously we’ve brought you the epic viral hit of the media getting burned on their predictions about the Seahawks, the NFL Films treatment...

Photo: J.J. Watt Photobombs Russell Wilson At Final Four

Houston Texans star defensive end J.J. Watt and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson both went to college at Wisconsin, but played for the program at different times (Watt went to UW in 2009 and 2010 and Wilson transferred to the school in 2011 after three years at N.C. State). But you wouldn’t know it based on the way Watt playfully sneaked his way into the background...

Richard Sherman taunts Michael Crabtree, Tom Brady with autograph signing

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman apologized for trashing Michael Crabtree in a postgame interview at the NFC Champion game, moments after tipping a pass away from the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver in the end zone. But now it appears Sherman isn’t quite done taunting Crabtree about that play, which propelled the Seahawks into Super Bowl XLVIII. #SorryCrabtree...

Doug Baldwin goes to the movies alone, crushes on Scarjo

Here at cover32 Seahawks we like to tease wide receiver Doug Baldwin because he has a bad temper, but he’s one of the more interesting NFL players on Twitter. Unlike other Seahawks who will remain nameless, Baldwin doesn’t just tweet inspirational quotes like a robot – he shows his personality. For example, a couple of weeks ago he posted a rant about a woman eating chicken...

Terrell Owens Wants To Be First Black ‘Bachelor’ (Video)

Terrell Owens has been out of the NFL for the last three years and now he says he’s ready to do “bigger and better things with his life”—like becoming the first black ‘Bachelor’ so he can find his “special someone.” Photo via hellobeautiful.com [RELATED: Ranking the 10 Best NFL Free Agents Still Available] [RELATED: Chad Johnson Tweets Photo From Home Theater...

Richard Sherman disses Michael Crabtree in autograph

The best rivalry in the NFL today is unquestionably between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers. They met in January to decide the NFC Championship in a grueling, nail-biting contest that ended on a crazy interception in the end zone.   Call it “just the tip.” That’s cornerback Richard Sherman tipping a pass from Colin Kaepernick to future Super bowl MVP Malcom...

Terrell Owens Wants To Find ‘Special Someone’ On ABC’s ‘The Bachelor’

Former NFL receiver Terrell Owens thinks he should be the next frontman on the ABC reality series “The Bachelor.” The show has aired 18 seasons, but Owens recently pointed out in a TMZ Sports online video that there hasn’t been a black bachelor yet and he’d like to be the first. “I’m prepped to do bigger and better things with my life,” Owens said. ”I am looking...

Seahawks looking hard at two wide receiver prospects

When wide receiver Golden Tate signed an offer sheet with the Detroit Lions, it was not the apocalyptic news that some Seahawks fans seemed to believe. However, he does need to be replaced. As it stands right now, here’s what the Seahawks wide receiver core looks like: 1. Percy Harvin: 5’11″, 184 lbs – fastest human being in the NFL, signed for five more years and a whole...

Picture: Richard Sherman is signing autographs ‘Sorry Crabtree’

The feud goes on. Seattle Seahawks corner Richard Sherman and San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree might have the best individual rivalry currently in the NFL. After last season’s NFC championship game, where Sherman made the play of the game by knocking away the go ahead touchdown that would have landed in Crabtree’s hands, the two have continued their volatile...

5 Options for the Seahawks in Round 1

Decisions, Decisions With the 2014 NFL Draft coming up, the Seattle Seahawks are working behind closed doors to put together their draft board. Pete Carroll and John Schneider have been tinkering for some time now and we all know it. But what exactly are they working on? Whose tape are they watching? Whose Combine or Pro Day impressed them the most? Those are the questions that...

Bandwagon? What bandwagon? Seattle sports fans are for real.

April Fool’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. The fake stories that get reported are always cherished, because it is one of the few times to really see the creative side of our stern media members. You have to be creative though, because the same lame, repeated jokes never work (I’m looking at you cousin Jimmy who announced he was pregnant for the third-straight year). This...
