Found November 23, 2012 on 60 Max Power O:
On January 1, 2012, the Packers had already clinched the #1 seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs and gave the final start to Matt Flynn against the Detroit Lions. He threw for 480 yards and 6 touchdowns in the 45-41 victory, both of which set all-time Green Bay Packers records. That performance drew the attention of many quarterback needy teams including Miami and Seattle. Flynn eventually decided to sign with the Seahawk, but things didn’t go as planned. Flynn signed a three-year deal for $19.5 million, with $10 million guaranteed. However, though the money was guaranteed, the starting quarterback position wasn’t. The Seahawks drafted Russell Wilson in the third round (75th pick overall) of the draft. Little was made about the selection at the time, but once training camp came around, Flynn found himself in a heated quarterback battle, and in turn became the loser.

The Seahawks have to travel across country this week, how will they respond. Week 12 preview.

Seattle has one of the best home field advantages in football.  They also have one of the toughest travels schedules in the league.  Except for a trip to London, this game in Miami is about as far as a team would have to travel for a game. After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day.  For the season that makes it 106-57.  I'm still in striking distance...

Seahawks will likely re-sign Jason Jones

Even though defensive end Jason Jones hasn’t had a good season, it sounds like the Seattle Seahawks will re-sign him at the end of the season. Of the Seahawks players due to become unrestricted free agents at the end of the season, team sources tell us the most likely to be re-signed would probably be DE Jason Jones. “He’s missed some time, and his numbers aren’t great,...

Lynch still carries Seattle's offense

Marshawn Lynch is the horse that drives the Seattle Seahawks' offense. Despite the emergence of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, the offense revolves around the running game and the physical style of Lynch. Lynch has the second-most carries of any running back in the league through 11 weeks, trailing only Houston's Arian Foster. Lynch has 212 carries for 1,005 yards,...

Seattle Seahawks at Miami Dolphins: Week 12 NFL Pick

Seattle Seahawks (6-4) at Miami Dolphins (4-6) As I mentioned in the Tennessee/Jacksonville write up, one situation I love betting on is road favorites after a bye. It’s strong for divisional matchups, as teams are 22-3 ATS as divisional road favorites off a bye since 2002, but that trend is still 22-12 ATS for non-divisional matchups and 44-15 ATS overall, so it’s not like it’s...

Philbin: Dolphins' play count telling of offensive struggles

When Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin and offensive coordinator Mike Sherman came to South Beach, they had visions of an up-tempo, fast-moving offense that moved the chains and kept defenses on their heels. Through 11 weeks, Philbin hasn't gotten the results he'd like, and he can pinpoint it to one telling number in the Dolphins' 4-6 campaign. “The thing that I...
