The news this week, aside from "what the hell is going on in the middle of the defense" (more on that tomorrow), is that WR Ben Obomanu has been placed on injured reserve after breaking his wrist in Detroit. To replace him, WR Jermaine Kearse has been activated off the practice squad.
Kearse has some intriguing physical ability (he can play a little running back, too), but I doubt he'll be seeing much time on offense. Obomanu was a special teamer first and a backup wideout second, and that shouldn't change now that Kearse has taken over his job.
With Doug Baldwin (limited participation in practice) and Braylon Edwards (no participation) both still very questionable to play, don't be surprised if the Seahawks add another wide receiver in the near future. Since we've reached the midway point of the season, I'd expect them to bring in someone who is already familiar with Bevell's offense. Lavasier Tuinei and Phil Bates are both currently o...
BEST OF MAXIM
As a lifelong Seahawks fan, that question is something I have pondered over and over again. The answer I come up with is this: I just do not know, but it is something that must be figured out in order for them to make the leap from pretender to contender. To be considered a legitimate contender, it simply must happen. No team can win a Super Bowl, let alone a few playoff games...
RENTON, Wash. (AP) Eight games into his inaugural campaign as starting quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson has begun to find a groove.
The Seahawks have put more on Wilson's plate in recent weeks as Seattle has gone to the passing game more frequently. Seattle has averaged over 30 carries a game for the season. But of Seattle's four games with fewer than...
Last week: 14 (-0)
No the sky is not falling with this team. They just went on the road for 2 games. Everything will be fine this week when the play the Vikings back in Seattle, where they play 5 of their final 8 games. They’ll still be right in the NFC playoff mix, but they will have to win 1 more road game. 9 wins probably won’t cut it in the NFC and that’s assuming...
Yet another close one goes array
Too many times this year, the Seahawks have come up just short, we’re talking within a touchdown of a victory.
Is it any coincidence that these games all have taken place on the road?
This team has been absolutely amazing at home since moving into their new digs at CenturyLink Field, and yet, this same team just can’t seem to find a niche for...
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin should play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, two weeks after sustaining a high ankle sprain, according to the Seattle Times. Baldwin was expected to take longer to heal, but practiced all week to the surprise of coach Pete Carroll on Friday. "You can't even explain it, but he pulled it off," Carroll said. "It...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings understand the tease with Seattle Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice very well from his first four years in the league. In the past two years, Seattle has learned quickly that Rice can be one of the NFL's best wide receivers, when healthy.
That's been the rub for Rice.
The talented, 6-foot-4 receiver has played in 16 games only once...
The Vikings defense will face Sidney Rice for the first time since he took a big payday with the Seahawks. Rice recounted his days in Minnesota and confirmed the Vikings made an effort to keep him.

While on the Dan Patrick Show, South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier said based on what he has seen on Sundays, this year’s Alabama team could beat some of the bad teams in the NFL.
“Alabama, gosh, they look like they could beat a couple...
The Vikings will have at least one new starter in their defensive backfield Sunday when they face the Seattle Seahawks.
The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks didn't end the first half of the season how they wanted. Both are hoping the second half starts on a positive note Sunday.
The Vikings will try to rebound from their most lopsided loss of the year and hand a third consecutive defeat to the Seahawks, who seek their best start at home since 2005.
This game features the NFL's top...
The top two running backs in the league will be on the same field Sunday. But the comparisons between Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch go far beyond this season’s yardage totals. See how similar they are and what the Vikings had to say about Lynch.
