60 Max Power O:
Pete Carroll is becoming quite a mean coach with nice talk after the game. However, during the game he’s been ruthless as his Seahawks concluded their 2nd straight 50+ point performance in a row.
We see nothing wrong with running plays that a team wants to practice, and if the other team takes exception, then stop the play.
The Seahawks are humming to a sweet tune these days behind rookie signal caller Russell Wilson and they have taken the shackles off and let the kid just play.
The results were back to back dominant performances that left a lot of fourth quarter time on the clock, thus Carroll did what he thought was best for his team. Carroll had his special teams run a fake punt when the game was essentially over because they already had it in the game plan.
Carroll has taken a pedal to the metal approach, but don’t apologize, that’s the way the game should be played. Carroll spoke about it after the game:
"I feel bad about this," Carroll said after the Seahawks win against the Bills in Toronto. "It was part of our game plan. It was something I could have called off and didn't," according to ESPN News Services.
"It was an automatic for us," he said. "We looked for it every time we were going to punt, and it was just there."
"It's unfortunate that it comes across like there's something wrong there," he said. "That's my fault, totally, for not stopping it from happening."

AROUND THE WEB
Another week, another debate about the inherent rightness of a team running up the score on an opponent. It’s a tedious argument that will never go away because the two common reactions to the idea of running up the score are “THAT’S DISRESPECT!” and “WELL, IF YOU DON’T WANT ‘EM TO RUN UP THE SCORE, YOU GOTTA STOP ‘EM!” Both of which are right and both of which...
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has muscled his way into the public eye with both his strong play and his larger-than-life personality.
The image of him mentally assaulting Patriots quarterback Tom Brady as he left the field in defeat will remain one of this season’s time capsule moments.
You mad bro?
He obviously has been as according to ESPN, Sherman’s appeal...

The Seahawks and 49ers impressed on the road, setting up a monster NFC West clash in Week 16. Seattle became the first team in 62 years to score 50+ in consecutive weeks, while San Francisco became the first team in 10 years to win in Foxboro in December.
Seahawk’s Offense Starting to Turn Heads
We are 14 games into the regular season and the Seattle Seahawks appear to be peaking at the perfect time. Within a matter of weeks this Seahawks offense, which has been steadily improving throughout the season, has become one of the hot topics across the NFL.
This past Sunday the Seahawks dropped the Bills 50-17 just one week after rolling...
Recently, Ed Reed said the NFL is becoming a powder-puff league because of the new rules installed by commissioner Roger Goodell. That may be giving the league too much credit — the NFL is turning into a Pop Warner league.
The controversy surrounding Pete Carroll the last two weeks has been ridiculous. The Seahawks’ head coach has been accused of running up the score against...
The Seahawks and TE Evan Moore have parted ways after 14 games, according to John Clayton.
Moore hadn’t done much on the year for Seattle, only catching one pass for 14 yards despite the team’s explosive offense.
The veteran pass catcher was on a one year, $1M contract and the report goes on to say that Seattle could look at players like Visanthe Shiancoe to replace Moore...
Seahawks come out swinging
Earlier in the week I wrote a piece about why the upcoming game against the Buffalo Bills concerned me. The Seahawks wasted no time relieving me of my concerns as they scored on their first 5 possession, before finally punting the ball on their 6th. By that time the Seahawks offense had already scored 31-points.
In-fact, the Seahawks became just the...
WR Deon Butler was signed to the roster to fill Charly Martin's role as the fifth wide receiver on the active roster, but he's been listed as inactive for the game. And as expected, Walter Thurmond has joined Marcus Trufant as an injury scratch on the sideline along with CB DeShawn Shead. The four cornerbacks who will be active for the game are Richard Sherman, Jeremy...
Fake punts are typically reserved for critical do-or-die situations, but for the Seattle Seahawks, they're business as usual. Up by 30 points over the Buffalo Bills early in the fourth quarter, the Seahawks opted to run a fake punt, which went for 29 yards. Seattle got a field goal out of the drive in closing out a 50-17 win. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said after the game that...
TORONTO -- Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson rushed for three touchdowns and passed for another as the red-hot Seattle Seahawks pummeled the hapless Buffalo Bills 50-17 at the Rogers Centre on Sunday. The explosive performance by the former Wisconsin star enabled the Seahawks (9-5) to win for fifth time in six games. The Bills (5-9) were officially eliminated from playoff contention...
Another blow out
I don’t know who the hell kidnapped my beloved Seahawks and replaced them with football players who can actually put up mass amounts of points, but I love them dearly!
Again, the Seattle Seahawks put up 50 plus points against a lesser opponent this week.
Their two game point total is now 108, which ties the New England Patriots, from earlier this year, as the third...
