Third year wide receiver Doug Baldwin has emerged as Russell Wilson’s favorite target so far this season. The former Stanford Cardinal had a rough sophomore season as he could not duplicate his nearly 800 yards receiving he had during his rookie season. Seattle’s receiving core has been far from explosive this season so it is important that somebody stepped up for Wilson.
The Seahawks X-Factor Percy Harvin should be coming back into the fray quite soon. When the Seattle Seahawks traded for Harvin they expected him to be the game changing player that would make the Seahawks offense elite. Obviously, that hasn’t happened yet because of injuries. It will take time for Harvin to get back to full strength but when he does the Seahawks will finally have a big playmaker on their offense.
With Sidney Rice slowing down, Baldwin will become the Seahawks number two wide receiver when Harvin comes back. Expect Harvin to get double teamed by opposing defenses which will put Baldwin in one-on-one situations. Although Baldwin lacks ideal height at 5’9, he does have great speed which will make him a threat especially because of his crisp route running.
When the playoff battles begin in January, the NFC is expected to have some high powered offenses representing them. We all know that defenses win Championships but the Seahawks will need Doug Baldwin to emerge against teams like the New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, and Green Bay Packers.

Seattle Seahawks WR Percy Harvin has started running and due to the short week, will not have the opportunity to practice. However, all reports are he's ahead of schedule and could start practicing as soon as next week. The team stated they do not intend on holding Harvin out until late season, so the versatile receiver could see himself back in the lineup in a few weeks.

On Thursday night the Seattle Seahawks
will face the Arizona Cardinals
in what is sure to be a great divisional matchup. However, if you like offense
you might not want to tune into this one. The Seahawks enter this battle fresh
off a clean but uninspiring victory over the Tennessee Titans last Sunday.
Their opponent, the Arizona Cardinals...
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Monday he’s “encouraged” by Percy Harvin‘s progress and the wide receiver’s return is “just around the corner.” The 25-year-old Harvin underwent the knife to fix a tear in his hip labrum on August 1 and was placed on the reserve/PUP list later that month. Acquired from the Minnesota Vikings in March, Harvin is ahead of schedule...
Seattle Seahawks starting linebacker Bobby Wagner (ankle) will not play on Thursday night against the Cardinals.
Seattle LB Bobby Wagner (ankle) is out for #azcardinals game. RB Marshawn Lynch (hip) is probable. DE Chris Clemons (elbow) questionable.

Despite an incredible amount of preseason hype and excitement, Pro Bowl wide receiver Percy Harvin has yet to suit up for Seattle this year. The Seahawks newly acquired offensive weapon has unfortunately been sidelined by a torn labrum in his hip. Harvin sustained the injury early in the preseason leaving many to wonder what Seattle’s offensive potential could be once the former...
The Seattle Seahawks will yet again be without key players on both sides of the ball going into their divisional matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, according to their official web page. Seattle’s middle linebacker and defensive signal caller Bobby Wagner has already been ruled out for Thursday’s game. While K.J. Wright is perfectly capable of sliding over from the weak side...
Pete Carroll understood that from the outside, the Seahawks' win looked pretty ugly.
Whether it was the careless ball security or the Seahawks being unable to pull away until late, there wasn't much aesthetically impressive about Seattle's 20-13 victory over Tennessee on Sunday.
But within the Seahawks' 11th straight home victory, Carroll was encouraged by a better...
The Seattle Seahawks eked out a win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday despite many errors on the field. After the game Seattle cornerback Walter Thurmond made only one mistake, he didn’t fashion himself with a cane to compliment his throwback ensemble. Dressed fresh to death like it was 1899, Thurmond rocked an olde time suit, complete with pocket watch and top hat. Ladies and...
Following Seattle’s 20-13 win over the Tennessee Titans, Seahawks corner Walter Thurmond went old school with his postgame outfit.
Way old school…

But Who’s out?
Not quite yet, but within the next couple of weeks Percy Harvin is going to be put on the Seattle Seahawks 53 man roster. We are all finally going to experience first hand what this guy will bring to the offense.
Harvin out of the slot and returning punts and kicks was just devastating to many of the Minnesota Vikings opponents last year and the prospect of that...
The Seattle Seahawks are 5-1, and life could be a lot worse for NFL football in the Emerald City. Still, it has been an interesting season. Seattle is proving to be a talented and exciting team on the field, but there is one unsettling reality.Seattle continues to win ugly.In this case, the word "ugly" means that Seattle is not exactly dominating teams from start to finish...
Not pretty, but we got it done
Perhaps it was the star power on the Seahawks sidelines that distracted the players, or maybe even the fact that the Tennessee Titans were using a backup QB.
Whatever the reason ended up being, the Seahawks sure didn’t look like they did the last time we saw them at CenturyLink Field.
Is it just me or does this team seem to be going backwards?

Seahawks keys to success
It is always tough to know how any team is going to respond to a short turn around like the one the Seahawks and Cardinals are both facing. One thing in the Seahawks favor is that while they were playing the Titans the Cardinals were playing a tough physical game against the 49ers.
There are some Titans who hit but for the most part they are more of a...
‘Ere, I suppose you saw that the team that systematically picked apart the Seahawks in Week 5, having been dominated for practically the entire first quarter before outscoring Seattle 34-16 after being 12-0 down on their own patch, couldn’t even reach double figures in San Diego a week later. The one blip on the Seahawks’ W-L record this season came against that team.
