NorthWest Sports Beat:
Two in a row baby!
Yes that’s right, your Seattle Seahawks have won two games in a row, and now take that momentum heading into their bye week.
Up next for the Seahawks is a show down in Miami against the Dolphins against another ex Pete Carroll star, Reggie Bush.
With 6 games remaining, the Hawks look to be in a great spot, and should be able to get into the post season barring any let downs.
The 49ers-Rams tie actually helped out the Hawks a lot this past weekend, as there is no way now that the 9ers can finish with the same record as Seattle, which makes the December 23rd matchup that much more important now.
With that I give you my top 10!
10: Wilson getting it done
For the second straight week, Russell Wilson looked like a seasoned vet in the pocket for the Seahawks.
Sure he had a fumble, his first at home, but he led the team to quite a lop-sided win at the same time.
I apologize for my complaining about him earlier on in the season, looks like Pete Carroll knows his stuff after all.
9: Tate continues to shine
WR Golden Tate got it done once again on Sunday against the Jets with another TD reception.
Even though it has taken some time for him to become a star on this team, I think the wait was worth it.
With all this high priced talent a WR, it’s nice for a draft pick to finally earn his way at the wide out position.

8: Lynch mob
I’m pretty sure this guy just doesn’t stop until he gets to the 100 yard plateau each and every week.
Marshawn Lynch joined Adrian Peterson as the only two backs who have reached the 1,000 yard rushing mark so far this season.
And just to remind you, it is only going into week 11, and there are some pretty soft defenses coming up in the remainder of the season, Lynch could finish at the top of the league this year.
7: Rice earning a dime
As part of the high priced WR talent I was speaking of earlier, Sidney Rice has finally decided to join this team for real, and catch some TD passes.
This week marked two weeks in a row in which the former Viking caught a TD pass. Better late than never I guess.
6: D make fools of Jets
Not that me and a couple of buddies couldn’t do the same thing, but the Hawks looked like the dominant force that scared the rest of the NFL earlier in the season once again on Sunday.
For the second time this year, the Hawks gave up only a single TD. The fist was against the Dallas Cowboys way back in week 2.
5: Our Trufant is better
Well, that should read our Trufant’s are better.
With Marcus Trufant beating his brother Isaiah’s Jets, and our very own Desmond Trufant winning at home against Utah on Saturday night, clearly the Trufant’s that are still in the 206 are much better than the one out in Jersey.
But I’m sure after the game it was all smiles for the brother’s Trufant and their family.

4: Sherman honored
Richard Sherman was named the NFC Defensive Player of the week for Sunday’s game.
Sherman had an interception, and he forced a fumble, both ending Jets drives.
3: Hawks at it again in the community
Just a mere three days after the Seahawks commemorated the American Veterans on Sunday, the team was at it again, but this time for World Diabetes Day.
On Wednesday, November 14th, the arches at CenturyLink Field were lit blue, in honor of WDD.
2: Bye week blues
One of my least favorite things about the NFL season is the bye week, and unfortunately, it is our turn to sit out of action this week.
Thank God for fantasy football, or this weekend would be a total loss.
1: A Golden pass
Is there anything this guy can’t do?
With a TD reception already in his pocket on Sunday, the Hawks decided to opt for some trickery against the Jets, and the man with the Golden name got it done.
Golden Tate threw a pass to Sidney Rice, for his team co-leading 6th TD of the year, on a screen pass that was destined for the end zone.
Well kids, that’s it for this week.
I hope, like me, you can find something to occupy your time on Sunday afternoon without any Seahawks on TV.
Be back in two weeks with the Seahawks week that was after the Miami game.

We wrote earlier today about Green Bay Packers CB Tramon Williams taking it upon himself to take ownership of the name "Optimus Prime" after Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman already used it a few weeks ago. Williams told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "I'm definitely Optimus Prime," adding that "guys like Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman, they...
Pete Carroll knows a little about the media pouncing on their prey. He took every attack the Boston media threw at him while he was head coach of the New England Patriots.
After his dismissal from New England, he went back to sunny Southern California and built a powerhouse USC program that turned him into an icon in those parts. Carroll also knows young quarterbacks and Mark Sanchez...
Last week: 10 (+1)
Remember two weeks ago when everyone thought the sky was falling for them when they were 4-4 after losing to Detroit. And two weeks before that everyone thought they were great when they were 4-2 and coming off a win against New England. Well, now they’re 6-4 and everyone thinks they’re great following a blowout win over the Jets. What happened...
Seahawks: By the Bye
The Seahawks have some clockwork to do this week. Below is featured each bye week from the first bye week in Week 4, through (yet to be elapsed) Week 11 and their outcomes. I was interested in seeing how the league, in general, has fared after a bye week. Of course, it stands to reason that superb teams should win after a bye. With one exception, the Chargers’...
Seahawks: Week 10 Off/Def/Spec. teams: “nutshell pictorial”…but first a consumer experience.
Mind you, my good friends, I am taking my leisure with this pictorial and a sniff of Glenmorangie 12. The benefit with a simple straIGHTFORWARD PICTORIAL, HERE IS THAT I’LL LESS LIKELY MISSPELL the text of my composition. I take this liberty on this rare occasion when I don’t have...

The Seattle Seahawks hosted the New York Jets Sunday in what was considered a must-win game for both teams. While there is great parity between the two teams’ records, a lot was on the line for both. Seattle is fighting for a playoff spot while the Jets are fighting themselves and the media circus they’ve created.
With that playoff spot in mind, Seattle players seem...
Seahawks win it in second half

When: 1:05 PST, Sunday, November 11, 2012
Where: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington
What started out as an awful first half of football by both teams, lead to a second half of football that was the most complete half of the 2012 season for the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks showed that they are mean, they are...
I know I just talked about how much I love The Real Rob Report, but this voting edition is so hilarious. In this video, we find out which Seattle Seahawks voted, who they voted for, why some didn’t vote, and who they would have voted for if they would have voted…which they didn’t.
Also, Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman (briefly) comment on current coverage rules vs. the...
(Note: Since I was redoing my spreadsheets anyway, I went ahead and revamped the tables I've been using for the stats articles as well. That part took a heck of a lot longer than I thought it would, but such is life.)
Entering their bye week, the Seahawks’ record stands at 6-4 with six games left to play in the season. Last year, the team was 4-6 after ten games, and...

Don’t talk about playoffs. Actually, let’s talk about the playoffs. We could get all hung up on tie-breaker scenarios and the what-ifs, but if the Seahawks can get to 10-6 they should be in the...
(Updates: With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer Pete Carroll kicked his players out of the Seattle's practice facility Monday with a simple message for their week off.
Get some rest.
''Hopefully we can cash in on it. What we will gain is rest and the rehab part of it and then we've got to go back to work and really hit it in earnest Monday,'' Carroll...
