If there's one thing that's always bugged me about the Seahawks teams Pete Carroll has put together over the last few years, it's been their maddening tendency at times to play down to the level of their competition. In 2011, they beat the 12-4 Ravens and the eventual Super Bowl champion Giants, but lost to a middling Cowboys team and a 5-11 Redskins team led by Rex "how the hell am I still a starter" Grossman. In 2012, the Hawks got better and better in every phase of the game as the season went along, but along the way rolled over and let the Dolphins and Lions (and nearly the Bears) cruise to game-winning scores late in the fourth quarter.
So, despite Richard Sherman's protests to the contrary, there were reasons to doubt how well the Seahawks were going to perform against the Jaguars. As bereft of talent as Jacksonville is, I don't think anyone believed Seattle was going to crater hard enough to give Chad Henne & co. a legitimate shot at ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson put his team on his back and ran for the hawks fourth win of season and the first 4-0 start ever in the history of Seattle. A lot happened to get the hawks into overtime including a clutch Richard Sherman pick 6, after starting the second half down 20-3.
In the first half, the offense looked stagnate through most of the game. The...
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett left Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans with a lower back injury, according to NFL.com's Greg Rosenthal. Bennett sustained the injury in the second quarter and was unfortunately carted off the field on a stretcher. Thankfully, he was still able to move his arms and legs after the play. Bennett was later cleared by hospital...
The Seattle Seahawks may very well be without three starting offensive linemen for Sunday's matchup against the Texans. A week after left tackle Russell Okung was placed on the short-term injured reserve list, starting right tackle Breno Giacomini did not participate at all this week with a knee injury and center Max Unger was only able to participate in a limited capacity...
Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett has been taken off the field on a stretcher after injuring his lower back on a hit on Houston quarterback Matt Schaub.
He was moving his legs and arms before he was strapped on the board and rolled off the field on a stretcher. The team says he has been taken to the hospital, but has feeling in all of his extremities.
Bennett was injured when...
Marshawn Lynch pulled off this crazy 43-yard run filled with broken tackles against the Texans on Sunday. It’s clear that man ate his Skittles today.

Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Clinton McDonald's face mask was bent out of shape during Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has alternated good and bad games this season, and Week 4 was one of his good ones. He had 98 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries and also caught three passes for 45 yards against Houston.Fantasy Spin:Lynch already has eight catches this season. He came into Sunday's game averaging just 3.4 yards per carry, but he broke free for a 43-yard...
A Real Test…
Not that I’m trying to take away from the Seattle Seahawks perfect 3-0 record, but they haven’t exactly faced the stiffest competition in getting that far. While playing the Panthers on the road is far from a gimmie, it’s not like the Seahawks aren’t the vastly better of the two squads; even the Niners in week 2 wasn’t a real challenge, and don’t even...
What for most of three quarters was an afternoon of slumber for the Seattle Seahawks ultimately turned into a day of history.
Seattle pulled off a shocking rally to beat the Houston Texans 23-20 in overtime and improve to 4-0 for the first time since the Seahawks entered the league in 1976.
Steven Hauschka won the game for Seattle with a 45-yard field goal with 3:19 left in the...
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett suffered a scary back injury against the Houston Texans. He was carted off on a stretcher.
The Seahawks defense hardly has a tough time coming up with turnovers and being proficient at catching deflections is one reason why. Earl Thomas eventually comes up with the interception once half the team gets a hand on it.
After a devastating run-in with the Baltimore Ravens in their place last Sunday, the most hotly anticipated contest in perhaps the entire NFL for the coming Sunday is occurring in our place. The white hot Seattle Seahawks bring their special mix of a killer secondary, brutal front seven and an offense that has moments of brilliance to Reliant to face an angry Houston Texans...
Seahawks 4-0 for 1st time
After the game I was having a conversation about dramatic victories the Seahawks have had in the recent years. I threw out the fact that the Bears game was the turning point of last season. It was also Russell Wilson’s coming out party as he grew from the Seahawks starting quarterback to a household name.
Because of those reasons I said it was the...
Pete Carroll is a sorcerer.
How else do you explain Seattle's comeback on Sunday? Down 17 points, on the road, against an experienced squad boasting one of the best running games in the league? Such conditions impede the hopes of a rally. So while Texans fans are burning Matt Schaub's jersey in effigy, don't blame the signal caller for his team's meltdown. Do you...
A fourth consecutive 3-0 start to the season – the Cardinal had exactly one of those from 1973 until 2001 – serves as another reminder of The Farm’s historic staying power. And while Stanford hits the road to exorcise the demons of the Seattle Seahawks’ space age digs, the newest TWISH entries feature a pair of exciting tilts below the old Stanford Stadium bleachers.
