Pro Bowl linebacker Lofa Tatupu is planning to make a comeback next season.

The lineman didn’t rush, but instead played patty cake. The defense played 2 hand touch, at best, and let offensive players walk into the endzone.
So, we’ve known for a while now that the Seahawks are going to get new uniforms next year. As Nike takes over as the supplier for the entire NFL, the Seahawks will shed their Reebok uniforms and don some new duds. It’s still unknown what exactly the new uniforms will look like. But we’re starting to get some hints from Nike, first with the release of new NFL gloves. (Nike spilled...
When the 2011 season started, I expected to hear a lot of talk about Seattle competing for the rights to draft Andrew Luck. As the season wore on, the Seahawks did get more and more media attention, but it was for the strong play of Marshawn Lynch and a resurgent second half of the season, not for a push toward futility.
