On a roll The Seattle Seahawks were home again this week to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. After being a huge favorite, the Seahawks came through with a 45-17 win, going to 3-0 on the season for the second time in team history. After a win like this, it’s nice to celebrate, but it’s time to move forward quickly to focus on the next game. Before we move on, though, I need to hand out some game balls. Offense Russell Wilson I know it’s cliche to give it to the starting quarterback, but Russell Wilson gets the offensive game ball. In just a half of action, he managed to throw for a hair over 200 yards and a whopping touchdowns. This was in 1 half of play. This is still a run-first offense despite what anyone of us may believe. The fact that Russell Wilson’s skills as a field general are already so developed is a big perk to this Seattle coaching staff. A game like this proves that he is the key to a Super Bowl run. Russell Wilson had himself a day against the Jags in 30 minutes of work. Defense Bobby Wagner A lot of people could have won this game ball. In my mind, though, Bobby Wagner stood out above the rest. Like usual, he led the team in tackles with 9, had a tackle for loss, a pass deflection and a big interception that was more impressive-looking than when most wide receivers make catches. After finishing second in both tackles and Defensive Rookie of the Year voting, the stellar sophomore middle linebacker is back on track to have a similar season as last year. And if that’s the case, the middle of the field is in good hands. Special Teams Steven Hauschka Well there was nothing spectacular on special teams this week, but one guy did get A LOT of work: Steven Hauschka. 6 extra points and a 21 yard field goal is definitely a full day’s work in a kicker’s world.

Can the 2013 Seattle Seahawks go undefeated?

’72 Dolphins all over again? If they play all of their remaining games at Century Link, I would have no doubt.  Let’s think about this realistically for a second though because while it’s still early, I’m starting to wonder if the Seattle Seahawks could make the impossible, possible and go undefeated for the 2013 season.

Seahawks player profile: The “Slot” receiver…Doug Baldwin

Seattle Seahawks Three key match-ups week 3

This Could Get Ugly… Let’s just call a spade a spade here. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a god-awful, unmitigated disaster of a football team and barring some sort of unforeseen disaster or the mysterious disappearance of half the Seattle Seahawks roster, they haven’t got a hope in hell on Sunday. They can’t throw the football, or play defense or even run the football anymore...

Week 3 Whiparound

Week 3 of the NFL season provided a good reminder to fantasy football players—certainly one that’s good for me to have every now and again: don’t overthink it.   Examples:   1) “Should I sit Russell Wilson this week?
