In 2008 the Green Bay Packers selected Matt Flynn in the 7th round with the 209th overall pick. That year, Flynn competed with Brian Brohm for a second-string roster spot behind Aaron Rodgers, a battle that Flynn won against all odds. Brohm had advantages in size, arm strength, and speed, yet Flynn managed to beat out his fellow rookie for the title of backup quarterback.Flynn’s first start came December 19th, 2009 against the New England Patriots when Aaron Rodgers was not medically cleared to play. In that outing, Flynn completed 23 of 37 passes for 254 yards and 3 touchdowns. The game came down to the final play when Flynn was sacked on the New England 15-yard line and lost the ball, resulting in a 31-27 loss.The next time Flynn would see significant action was in a 2012 start after the Packers had already clinched the No. 1 seed. In the final game of the regular season against the Detroit Lions, Flynn threw for 480 yards and 6 touchdowns in a 45-41 victory. Both stats are Green ...

According to Dan Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com, the Seatlte Seahawks are still concerned about the Matt Flynn’s elbow.
One of the reasons it wouldn’t make sense to bench Russell Wilson in favor of Flynn if the Seahawks don’t improve, is that no one knows how his elbow will hold up.
“The thing is, they’re giving Wilson the great majority of reps in practice, because they...
Former Seattle Seahawks great Warren Moon believes that head coach Pete Carroll needs to stop having rookie quarterback Russell Wilson play like a robot to limit turnovers.
“He feels that he can do more and handle more than they’re giving him,” Moon told Doug Farrar of Shutdown Corner.
“You’ve got to remember — Pete’s a defensive coach, and he preaches, ‘Turnovers...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer The question asked of Seattle coach Pete Carroll had nothing to do with Bobby Wagner.
After the way Wagner has played in the first quarter of the season, Carroll made it a point to recognize how well his rookie middle linebacker is doing making the adjustment from college to the NFL.

Silence of the lambs
With everything going right in the Seahawks world going into Sunday’s divisional matchup with St. Louis, the Hawks sure picked a bad time to let their true colors show.
Now the world can really see that the win the previous week was a fluke, and we are the the laughing stock of the NFL community.
Sure, there are worse teams that us, but to ride high with...
2 – 2 through the first 4 games
Impressions, such a funny word isn’t it?
Root word is impress, as in I would like to see the Seattle Seahawks impress me over the next quarter of the season.
Past tense is impressed, as in the Seahawks defense really impressed me during the first half of the Monday Night Football game against the Packers.
Impressions? Now that is a totally...
Seahawks mail sack!
Regularly, I take an opportunity to address my readers’ comments and concerns regarding the Seahawks season. I value this opportunity. In today’s mailbag I address responses to my “Seattle Seahawks offense in a nutshell” pictorial article. Keep your responses coming!
My first letter comes from Michael Bernazzani.

When it comes to the most trusted, dignified journalists in American history, of course Geraldo Rivera will be forever atop the list. No one else has made a career out of being so right, all of the time, like the distinguished Mr. Rivera.
The latest example of Geraldo's class and dignity on television came as he discussed the Seattle Seahawks/Green Bay Packers controversial...
Replacement Refs, QB Controversy, Inconsistencies
In part one of our four part series, NWSB examined the first four games of the Seattle Seahawks‘ 2012 schedule. Fearlessly, I predicted that the Seahawks would find themselves sitting with a record of 3-1 at this point in the season and, needless to say, I was wrong.
It’s been a frustrating campaign so far — to say the least...
Playing to their level
The Seattle Seahawks went into St Louis on Sunday looking to make a name for themselves in the NFC West. After starting off the year with a heartbreaking loss at division rival Arizona, the Seahawks couldn’t afford to lose their second division game of the year.
Leave it to the Seahawks, though, and they’ll surprise you in many ways. After looking stellar...
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was back to full participation after being listed as partial participation Wednesday for rest. Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane, who has been enjoying a very good season, did not practice Thursday and is listed as having a calf injury. Pete Carroll doesn't talk with reporters on Thursday, so we don't know the severity of the injury, or...
According to Eric D. Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch fully participated in practice on Thursday.
This is great news since Lynch has been limited for the first quarter of the season with tightness in his back.
Now that the replacement refs are cruising through the wants ads looking for a Pop Warner team to put the screws to, some truth is coming to light.
Replacement referee Wayne Elliott has stuck to his story that the touchdown call at the end of the Seattle Seahawks victory over the Green Bay Packers was the right call.
Now a little over a week later, he’s backing off that stance...
I saw this article on BustedCoverage yesterday. Pretty awesome….
“Gino DiFelice and his Brantford family might want to send NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a gift basket for prolonging his labour dispute with the league’s officials. While the regular NFL officials went back to work last Thursday, DiFelice was revelling in his big Proline win, thanks in part to the replacement...
I love the nuggets Juan…
Marshawn Lynch is proving the last season was not an illusion. He is carrying the load big time for the Seahawks and is fantasy owners that didn’t worry about his DUI suspension. Owners can kick back with some nuggets and watch him tear it up on Sunday against the Panthers.

Week 5 Ride Em Or Hide Em
You know, of course, about the Monday Night Football game from two weeks ago that gave the Seahawks a win they shouldn't have and set up the replacement officials from an unceremoniously exit from the NFL.
But here's what you don't know about the Hail Mary that Russell Wilson threw to Golden Tate, who supposedly had a simultaneous catch with Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings...
