Every regular season leaves a lot of question marks for every team in the NFL, but this is an offseason that may be the most critical for the Seattle Seahawks. In just 17 weeks, we've seen a relatively green, young team transform from a raw, athletic core into a fully functional and capable football force.
The team has an insane amount of potential. A few versions of the Seahawks from recent years may have matched or even surpassed what this current incarnation of green-and-blue has in terms of talent, but the comparisons end there. Not even in the Holmgren golden age has a team been this downright hungry. These guys play like every down is their last (see Marshawn Lynch, Doug Baldwin) and hit like every opposing player outweighs them by 200 pounds (see Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, David Hawthorne.) The team is expertly coached on both sides of the ball, but it's that extra fire in their bellies that separates this 53-man roster from what it's been before.

BEST OF MAXIM
One of the best running backs in the NFL this season is hoping to stay in the Pacific Northwest.Seattle Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch suggested Monday his first priority is to re-sign with the Seahawks. The free-agent-to-be responded positively when asked if he might be a candidate for a franchise tag."Hopefully I don’t have to (be)," Lynch said. "Hopefully I can...
The NFL has fined Marshawn Lynch from the Seattle Seahawks $10,000 for wearing cleats with skittles on them during the team’s loss on Sunday against the 49ers. This instance serves for Lynch’s second uniform violation this year. His first violation was for wearing green socks, costing him $5,000. Although it’s nearly irrelevant to man who is in a 6 year $18.9 million contract...
Marshawn Lynch picked a good time to have his best NFL season. The Skittles-loving running back gained 1,204 yards on the ground and scored 13 touchdowns overall in his first full season with the Seahawks, giving him a strong platform to use to sell himself as he hits free agency. Unless he reaches an agreement…
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch addressed his pending free agency while talking to reporters during his team’s locker room clean out this morning. “Everything’s going to fall into place,” Lynch said about becoming an unrestricted free agent in March. “There’s not too much I can do about it but just wait.” And would he like to be back in Seattle? “I mean...
Even though he just concluded his fifth NFL season, Marshawn Lynch said he grew up and became a pro in 2011.
He took care of himself off the field. Little things like extra stretching, eating a bit better - sans the Skittles that are always nearby - and a willingness to be coached that might not have been there in the past.
The same could be said about much of the Seattle Seahawks...
This video isn't going to help ESPN's perception of bullying others in the media with their access, money, and influence. After the Sugar Bowl, ESPN sideline reporter Holly Rowe would let nothing, not even another human being, stand in her way of getting Michigan coach Brady Hoke for ESPN's postgame interview. If this were two years ago, Michigan actually could have...
