The Seattle Seahawks have had a successful offseason and while questions still surround Matt Flynn and the quarterback position here are three ways the Seahawks could knock off the San Francisco 49ers and win the NFC West.
In the NFC West the San Francisco 49ers are looking stronger than ever. With all the offseason receivers the 49ers picked up, it looks as if Alex Smith and the 49ers defense will be unstoppable and will steam roll through the NFC West again. Or will they?
If there is any team in the west that can unseat the 49ers it's the Seattle Seahawks. It wont be an easy task for Seattle. San Francisco is a force to be reckoned with, but it is not one to fear. There are three key things the Seahawks will have to do if they want to reclaim the NFC West throne.

Four in camp…who wins?
The Seattle Seahawks went all out in hopes for a legitimate starting quarterback this off-season. Picking up the talented Matt Flynn in free agency, and drafting hopeful stud Russell Wilson in the 3rd round of this years draft.
Both were brought in to challenge incumbent starter Tarvaris Jackson for his job. Which I think will ultimately result in Jackson’s...
The Seahawks are having a 3 way competition for quarterback between mediocre incumbent starter Tarvaris Jackson, free agent acquisition Matt Flynn, and 3rd round rookie Russell Wilson. Flynn is currently the leader in the clubhouse thanks to his strong play in camp and the 10 million guaranteed he got this offseason. Wilson has also gotten a lot of praise from the coaching staff...
Northwest Sports Seattle Offense Taking Shape In OTAs
While readers of NHL blogs (which you can find here) are getting ready for the Stanley Cup finals between Los Angeles and New Jersey, teams in the NFL are starting their OTAs when players get together for the first team and new guys are meeting their teammates for the first time officially as well.

Chris Clemons has been noticeably absent from Seahawks’ OTAs and according to ESPN Seattle’s Brock Huard, this is an “abundantly clear” sign that Clemons is seeking a new contract and could hold out into mandatory minicamps. Clemons is owed 4.5 million in the final year of his contract, which makes him highly underpaid.
Clemons has surprisingly emerged as one of the better...

The Seattle Seahawks have confirmed they will hold a tryout for Brain Banks, the former California high school football star who was freed from prison after serving five years for a rape case in which he was falsely accused.

We learned today via Mike Sando's ESPN NFC West blog that WR Golden Tate has a broken hand and is not practicing.
The team said they expect Tate to return for training camp.
The Hawks brass have high expectations for Tate in 2012, the missed time is costly in the short term, especially since the lockout prevented him from practicing last offseason as well.
Per PFT hes...
We read on the Seahawks.com blog yesterday that there was an "invasion" of sorts.
While practice was going on at the VMAC suddenly AC / DC's "For those about to rock, we salute you" came on blasting over the field's loudspeaker.

Wide receiver Golden Tate is unable to participate in OTAs with the Seahawks while dealing with a broken hand, according to Mike Sando of ESPN.
The promising young receiver is expected to be healthy and ready to go for the start of training camp, and missing OTAs is not expected to hold him back in what Seattle believes could be a breakout campaign in 2012.
Free agent running back Justin Forsett posted on his Twitter account Saturday that he has agreed to a contract with the Houston Texans. NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk reported last week that the team was going to try out Forsett on Wednesday. If Forsett signs, he would likely back up Arian Foster and Ben Tate as the third tailback on the depth chart. Forsett, 26, rushed for...
During this MLB season, fans have witnessed several rather rare feats on the field, including a perfect game and a 4-homer game. Either of these accomplishments, and many more (a triple play or four stolen bases in a game, etc.), have the potential to occur during any given game. The possibility is there, but it’s difficult to achieve.
