A couple other guys will not practice today, including receiver Mike Williams (concussion...
These ain't your older cousin's Seahawks. Since Pete Carroll took over as coach and vice president of football operations in Seattle last season, the Seahawks have only 10 players on the 53-man roster remaining from 2009. They have 24 players in their first season with the team and...
Pete Carroll is coaching on the other side of the continent, but he keeps track of his USC boys out here on the East Coast as much as he can. So what was his reaction when the only remaining Trojan on the Giants’ roster, Terrell Thomas, was lost for the season with a torn ACL in a preseason game?
The Seattle Times ranks the NFL from top all the way to bottom with a little humor mixed in, including a suggested role for Tim Tebow in Madonna's Super Bowl halftime show. Be advised, Tom Coughlin, that should Pete Carroll ask, you can always tell him that David is your Diehl.
