The Seattle Seahawks have announced that quarterback Brady Quinn has agreed to terms on a contract that will make him their new back up behind Russell Wilson.

Quinn played pretty well last season for the Chiefs.  He threw for over 60 percent, but also only had 2 touchdown passes compared to 8 interceptions.

Seattle! Get on board with Brady Quinn being a Seahawks QB!

Seahawks add a vet It seems so odd to me to use the term “VETERAN QUARTERBACK” while referring to Brady Quinn.  It seems as if it were only a couple drafts ago when we were talking about the young man entering the draft from Notre Dame. It is hard for me to believe that he already has 6 years of NFL experience, for three different teams. There are several things to be excited...

Sea-Mock: Draft Predictions For The Seattle Seahawks

With the 2013 NFL Draft right around the corner, I thought I would concoct a mock draft for the Seattle Seahawks.  If you have any comments or would like to send me an email to spar, I'd encourage you to do so at my email, BJSmith6970@gmail.com. There are several approaches to drafting: horizontal drafting or vertical drafting.  When you horizontal draft, it indicates...

How Much More Can Russell Wilson Improve?

When the 2012 NFL season kicked off, no one gave Russell Wilson a ton of thought because he was scheduled to be playing behind Matt Flynn. However, Coach Pete Carroll decided early on that Wilson would be the guy to lead the offense. That decision paid off and helped Seattle get into the playoffs.
