Found September 05, 2013 on MyTeamRivals.com:
Seattle Seahawks Prediction: 1st in division (13-3 overall) Strengths: The 12th man. The Seahawks are just brutal to play at home. Defense gave up just over 11 points per game last season at home. They didn’t lose a game at home either. Oh and Marshawn Lynch is a beast. Russell Wilson is a stud. And Pete Carroll just loves winning. Causes for concern: Not too many causes for concern for Seattle except for maybe the receiving core. Percy Harvin has no timetable for his return. But Golden Tate and Sidney Rice can still carry the load until he comes back. Wilson should avoid sophomore slump but may be a concern. X-Factor: Russell Wilson. If he can pick up right where he left off last year, he will have this offense running circles around opposing defenses. Seattle’s defense is tough, the crowd will always be a big factor at home, but if Wilson performs well I like this team to take the whole NFC. San Francisco 49ers Prediction: 2nd in division (11-5 overall) Strengths: Defense. The bes...

Richard Sherman Reflects On How It Feels When A Beloved Veteran Is Cut

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is a certified loudmouth who has gained his reputation around NFL circles — players, media, fans — thanks to on-field antics, as well as alleged off-field transgressions.

Seahawks injury report: Cliff Avril, Chris Clemons, Sidney Rice

This week, the Seattle Seahawks travel to the east coast to visit the Carolina Panthers. As of Thursday evening, there are still several players whose game status is up in the air. Perhaps the most important is defensive end Cliff Avril, who was acquired by Seattle during the offseason via free agency. Avril previously played for the Detroit Lions where he wreaked havoc off...

Getting Ready For The Start Of The Seattle Seahawks Season

The Seattle Seahawks open the 2013 season with more anticipation than any season opener in recent memory.  Even in their NFC championship season of 2005, when they were coming off their third division title in team history, there was a bad aftertaste the way they closed the 2004 season with a playoff loss to the St. Louis Rams, giving them an 0-3 season mark in that rivalry.  Since...

Seahawks Secondary: The Link to Lombardi

Sherman and Browner (@Seahawks)   With this current secondary, the Seattle Seahawks can boast one the greatest defensive units of all time but on one condition: they must win a Lombardi trophy. Legacies matter in sports, especially football, so if Seattle, particularly their safeties and corner backs wish to enter the pantheon of NFL legend and pigskin lore, a Super Bowl ring,...

What I’m watching for in the Seahawks vs Panthers Week 1 match up

Break the Road Mold Oh sweet 6 pound, 7 ounce baby Jesus. The NFL and our Seahawks 2013 championship season has finally come! Never in Seattle sports history has a season been so hyped and anticipated. The agonizing wait of the preseason has felt like being slow-cooked in a crock pot of football teasers and mock fantasy drafts for 7 months. But my friends, the wait is over. The Seahawks...

Seattle Seahawks: Secondary Storylines

When discussing the strengths of the Seattle Seahawks, the secondary has to be towards the top of the list. This is undoubtedly one of the most loaded line-ups of defensive backs in the NFL. So loaded, in fact, that free-agent acquisition Antoine Winfield opted for retirement when it became clear that he would be cut in favor of 2010 draft pick Walter Thurmond. In a defensive...

Seattle Seahawks Rookies To Watch

The Seattle Seahawks played their last preseason game a week ago, beating the Oakland Raiders 22-6.  Usually the last preseason game isn’t important for the starters – for example, QB Russell Wilson only played one series against the Raiders.  But he only needed one to complete three of three, passing 68 yards for a three minute opening drive that ended in the Hawks first touchdown...
