That's right, the rest of the league seems to have finally realized that Earl Thomas is pretty great. He'll be headed to Hawaii as the starting free safety for the NFC team, and according to John Boyle of the Everett Herald he may not be the only Seahawk in attendance:
First Alternates: CB Brandon Browner, SS Kam Chancellor, FB Michael Robinson
Second Alternate: RB Marshawn Lynch
Third Alternate: P Jon Ryan
Alternates are only invited to the Pro Bowl if a player who was named ahead of them declines to accept their invitation for whatever reason, the main two reasons being that they're too injured or too busy getting ready to play in the Super Bowl to attend. For instance, if Green Bay were to play in the Super Bowl this year, CB Charles Woodson and FB John Kuhn would bow out and Browner and Robinson would take their places. Chancellor's chances of attending depend entirely on the status of Cardinals SS Adrian Wilson, Lynch would need two of the NFC's three...

If you notice Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch's shoes seem especially colorful from now on, that might be because he's wearing Skittles on his feet.
Lynch's Skittles habit (a handful after every touchdown) is well known to football fans, and now Nike is getting some publicity by designing a pair of shoes featuring the fruit-flavored candy -- made special just for...
After each week of the regular season and possibly during the NFL playoffs should the Seattle Seahawks be so lucky Dave B will stop by and bring you his Seahawks game balls. Balls are awarded to the Seahawks offensive MVP yet again running back Marshawn Lynch, and on defense this week DB Kam Chancellor.
His heart wishes the Seattle Seahawks had two extra weeks to vie for the postseason.
The rest of Golden Tate's body knows better.
If the NFL had its way, the regular season would grow from 16 to 18 games. Under such a scenario, the 2011 Seahawks (7-8) would still be in contention for a wild-card berth with three contests left to play. Instead, the playoffs are now a pipe dream...
