Beat down in Sea-Town Holy cow! That was one hell of a game last Sunday. The Seahawks took the first takeaway of the game and just ran with it, never looking back en-route to 7 more takeaways on the day, and a record 58 points scored. There have been multiple joke pictures and tweets floating around cyberspace ever since the end of the ballgame, so I thought I would include a couple of them here in this weeks piece. Nothing adds to the embarrassment of a loss like that than the whole world making fun of your team on Facebook and Twitter! With that, I give you my top 10! 10: Lynch mob Marshawn Lynch got back over the 100 yard mark for the first time in a few weeks. But that just wasn’t enough for him, he felt the need to do it on only 11 carries! Marshawn Lynch had 3 TD’s on the day. (Photo: sportsnet.ca) Oh yeah, and he added a mere 3 touchdowns on the day as well. 9: Getting it done in every area This week it wasn’t just about the offense finally. Well it was, but the defense got it done, special teams got it done, and the running game got it done. With 58 points being put up on the board you would think that Russell Wilson would’ve had more than 1 TD pass right? 8: Was Pete out of line? I would say so if he had kept the starters in for the entire game. But since the Cardinals couldn’t even stop our second string guys, then the answer is no. Two 100 yard rushers for the Hawks, that isn’t Pete Carroll’s fault, that is the Cardinals fault. 7: Funniest tweet of them all BREAKING: The Cardinals flight home has been delayed. Someone painted an endzone on the team plane and they can’t figure out how to get in. — Peyton’s Head (@PeytonsHead) December 10, 2012 6: Grey Wolf unleashed in Canada It was announced that the Seahawks will be wearing their alternate wolf grey uniforms when they travel to Toronto to face the Buffalo Bills this Sunday. 5: Jon Kitna raised the flag One of my favorite Seahawks of all time was on hand to raise the 12th man flag prior to the game on Sunday. The funniest pic of the last week (Photo: facebook.com) I would like to think that it was his presence that brought out the beast the was the Seahawks against the Cardinals. A northwest original, Kitna is now a math teacher in Tacoma. He spent a portion of his career with the Hawks, and played college ball in Washington as well. 4: 4th best The margin of the shut-out was the 4th biggest since the 1940 season. That’s 72 years of football, and our little team up here in Seattle is now on the most elite shutout list! 3: Defense was huge against the run 43 rushing yards is all the Cardinals could muster against the rejuvenated Hawks D. It was nice to see the D stand up for a change, after a few poor performances on their part. This game was all about the D. Any time you can shut out an opponent in this league you are doing something right. 2: Larry who? Speaking of defense doing a good job, the most dangerous wide receiver in the game, Larry Fitzgerald was held to only one catch, for a whopping 2 yards. Fitzgerald was targeted 11 times on the day, and had one dropped pass that ended up in the hands of Bobby Wagner. I guess the suspension of Brandon Browner, and the injury to Marcus Trufant didn’t come back to bite us after all. 1: Play of the week In a game in which 58 points were scored, how do you pick just one TD or play that defined it? You can’t really, which is why this weeks video is a highlight reel of the Seahawks defense from the game. You can view the video at seahawks.com here. I hope you all enjoyed this romp as much as I did, and here’s to another away win in the great white north this Sunday! CLICK HERE CHECK OUT THE SEAHAWKS BLOG IN OUR CLUBHOUSE SECTION AT NWSB!

Nike The Seattle Seahawks will be wearing their alternate “grey wolf” uniformswhen they travel to Toronto to play the Buffalo Bills this coming Sunday.

Report: Richard Sherman's appeal will be pushed back, will play Sunday

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was supposed to hear his appeal on his 4-game suspension on Friday, but a source familiar with the case said it likely will be delayed until the following week, according to Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports.

Making the MVP Argument For Marshawn Lynch

The Seattle Seahawks are in position for a wild card spot in the NFC. They are really overachieving this season considering they are starting a rookie 3rd round pick in QB Russell Wilson. The receiving corps came in with question marks. They had Terrell Owens and Braylon Edwards in their training camp; that should let you know how they felt about their wide receiver situation. It...

One Game At A Time For The Seattle Seahawks

Do you remember the game the Seattle Seahawks played against the Cardinals on Sunday? You know the 58-Nil beat-down handed out by the defense and Marshawn Lynch? Yeah, you might as well forget about it. I say this for two reasons. The first is that in a game like that, where everything goes your way, it doesn’t tell you much about who your team is. The defense absolutely dominated...

Seattle's 2012 draft class paying off on the field

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer Everyone knows about Seattle stealing quarterback Russell Wilson in the third round of last April's draft and perhaps finding the franchise quarterback so many NFL teams seek. But he's not the only rookie the Seahawks drafted in April who is making a huge impact. From defensive end Bruce Irvin...

Seattle Seahawks shaping up to play the 49ers for all the NFC West marbles in week 16 (playoff picture week 15)

Just a few short weeks after it appeared that the suspensions of the top two cornerbacks would derail the Seattle Seahawks playoff hopes they look every bit the part of a contender and potentially a division champion. Seattle has won two games in a row including a convincing win over the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field which allows us to assume they'll handle the Bills on the...

Seahawks-Bills Preview

After the Seattle Seahawks sent a message to their opponent last week, Marshawn Lynch may want to do the same to his former team. Lynch and the Seahawks try for their fifth victory in six games Sunday as they head to Toronto to face the Buffalo Bills, who appear bound to miss the playoffs for the 13th consecutive season. Although the Bills' ground game has been strong thanks...

Seattle Seahawks: Week 15 NFL Power Rankings (#6)

Last week: 10 (+4) Record: 8-5 Net points per drive: 0.61 (5th) DVOA: 38.8% (2nd) Weighted DVOA: 43.1% (2nd) The Seahawks will control their own destiny to the #2 seed if the 49ers lose in New England this weekend and the Packers lose 1 more game. That’s very possible and if that happens, they’ll just need to win out and two of their final 3 games are at home, where they look...

The trap is set for the Seahawks vs. Bills in Toronto

Have your passports ready On paper, the Seattle Seahawks should be able to head east, and bring home a victory on Sunday.  ”On paper” doesn’t mean much, as the Seahawks have already proven several times this season. We have all heard the term “Trap Game” many times over the years.  If everyone knows about them, why do they happen? Simply put, they just do.  Even veteran...

49ers Head to New England With NFC West Lead in Danger

The Seahawks find themselves with a prime opportunity to close the gap in the NFC West should San Fran lose to the Patriots in Foxborough in Week 15.

Know your enemy: Seattle Seahawks

The Bills are playing the Seahawks in Toronto on Sunday. No one from Toronto to Syracuse really cares. The season is done. Meaningless football is a seasonal occurance just like leaves changing colors and snow hitting the ground. However, I still like doing Q&As with other bloggers who happen to cover a team that doesn't suck. So this week, we have Matthew over at Seattle...

QCS Buffalo Water Cooler: Lynch Returns To Take On Former Team

This weeks Water Cooler features QCS writers Mike Bundt, Ryan Talbot, Brandon Hess, and Ryan Talbot Mike Bundt: What’s up everybody! Let’s get into business right away.
