Even though Russell Wilson didn’t play much in the Seahawks first preseason game, the team looked sharp. Seattle played a good game against the Chargers. They won the game 31-10 and Wilson played well in the limited time he was in the game. He completed only 2 of the 6 passes he threw and he rushed for 9 yards on 2 carries. Wilson coming into his second NFL season is going to be better than last season it seems. He shows incredible poise in his second season. The Seahawks are impressing their fans and it has been a long time coming. The team seems to be making all the right moves to assure they make it into the post season again this year. Tarvaris Jackson looked good in the game. He completed 8 of 9 passes for 128 yards and 2 touchdowns. It is nice to know there is a guy on this Seahawks team that could come off the bench if needed and compete. The Seahawks also ran the ball well in the game. Michael ran for 89 yards on 16 carries. He averaged 5.6 yards each time he touched the bal...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Seahawks rookie running back Christine Michael looked good in Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Chargers. Michael got his share of opportunities in Seattle’s 31-10 win over the San Diego Chargers. He ran six times for 21 yards in the first half. In the second half, he turned it up a notch, carrying 10 times for 66 yards — including a 24-yard run — for a total...
Seahawks rookie running back Christine Michael got plenty of opportunity, carrying the ball 16 times for 89 yards as well as returning kickoffs. Rookie tight end Luke Willson got his fair share of reps playing with the first team offense. Other drafted rookies Ty Powell, Spencer Ware, and Michael Bowie also got significant playing time.
But while all of these players were drafted...
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michaels has been making a lot of noise at training camp, and coach Pete Carroll and his staff wanted to put him to the test. Michael got his share of touches in Seattle’s 31-10 win over the San Diego Chargers.
The Glory Hogs
Yada Yada Percy Harvin‘s hurt yada yada. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, where was I?
Ah yes, the Seattle Seahawks wide receivers that will be healthy from week 1 forward and their projected stats lines.
They may not have the flashy big play ability of Harvin for the majority of the season (and potentially longer), but there are no shortage of stars in...
Let There be Depth!
I don’t care that for the most part I was watching second and third string players. I don’t care that this game meant absolutely nothing. It was Seattle Seahawks football, and for the first time in over six months it graced the screen of my dirty, dust-covered television.
The Seahawks kicked off their preseason last night with a week 1 romping...
Fight To The Death
Going into the week one preseason match up between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Diego Chargers, an important position battle is on the line that has gotten very little media play.
What happens if Russell Wilson goes down?
For a team with Super Bowl aspirations, and an offensive attack that can lead to a few hits on the franchise quarterback, the need to have...
A nice showing from Seahawks No. 3 running back, rookie Christine Michael, in the preseason opener - 16 carries for 89 yards.Fantasy Spin:Unless Marshawn Lynch gets hurt or has more legal issues, Michael shouldn't have much fantasy value this season, but keeper league owners should keep an eye on him and he could give backup Robert Turbin a run for his money.
Even though it was an exhibition opener, the Seattle Seahawks looked like a team worthy of big expectations.
And the San Diego Chargers? Well, they looked like the same old Chargers.
Tarvaris Jackson threw two touchdown passes and Brady Quinn, also battling to be Russell Wilson's backup, threw for another score as the Seahawks beat San Diego 31-10 Thursday night in Mike McCoy...
Earlier this week I dropped my Fantasy Forecast for the NFC East, and today we move onto the NFC West. This division is going to be known more for its defense than its offense as it houses two of the top defensive teams in the league in the Seahawks and the 49ers. The Rams and the Cardinals are moving up in defensive talent as well, and don’t forget that they bottomed out the top...
The Seattle Seahawks have beat the San Diego Chargers 31-10 in their first preseason game.
In a game that ultimately means nothing at the end of the season, there was some good things to take away from this game. Philip Rivers finally looked comfortable in an improved offensive line. Unfortunately for the Chargers, there isn’t much depth behind the starting five offensive linemen...
The Seattle Seahawks will visit the San Diego Chargers in each teams first preseason football game of the season.
Ah. Preseason. Where the games do not matter but the roster spots do. If nothing else it will be interesting to see how San Diego plays under first year coach Mike McCoy.
Kickoff for this game is set at 10:00 pm ET.
The spread favors the Seahawks by 2.5 points...

The title of this article may seem ludicrous to some of you, but hang in there and let me explain the eerie similarities between the two clubs. Image: USATSI
