60 Max Power O:
Pete Carroll knows a little about the media pouncing on their prey. He took every attack the Boston media threw at him while he was head coach of the New England Patriots.
After his dismissal from New England, he went back to sunny Southern California and built a powerhouse USC program that turned him into an icon in those parts. Carroll also knows young quarterbacks and Mark Sanchez was one his best quarterbacks while at USC.
However, Carroll warned Sanchez to stay another year, feeling he wasn’t ready and said so at Sanchez’s press conference to announce his entering the 2009 NFL Draft. Carroll is also grooming his own young quarterback in Russell Wilson, who is having some success leading the Seahawks to a 6-4 record. Carroll’s Seattle squad grounded the New York Jets 28-7 last Sunday, and he got to see first hand the three ring circus of Ryan, Sanchez and Tebow.
Carroll spoke to 710 ESPN in Seattle with Brock and Salk about is observation of what the New York situation looks like to him.
“I think he (Mark Sanchez) is in a very difficult situation and the whole emphasis of the two quarterbacks thing is really hard. You saw [Sunday] it didn’t get very much for them. It’s gotta be a little bit more disruptive, but I feel for him. I think Tim Tebow is an extraordinary defender and player and professional athlete, but this whole factor has been really hard on him. I’m sure it’s been really confusing to their fans and that park, at home, has to be really hard on him, too. I know I haven’t seen a game there, but I can tell what is happening. I think they are hard on him at the stadium, so that’s as hard as it’s going to get.”

We wrote earlier today about Green Bay Packers CB Tramon Williams taking it upon himself to take ownership of the name "Optimus Prime" after Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman already used it a few weeks ago. Williams told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "I'm definitely Optimus Prime," adding that "guys like Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman, they...
Last week: 10 (+1)
Remember two weeks ago when everyone thought the sky was falling for them when they were 4-4 after losing to Detroit. And two weeks before that everyone thought they were great when they were 4-2 and coming off a win against New England. Well, now they’re 6-4 and everyone thinks they’re great following a blowout win over the Jets. What happened...
Two in a row baby!
Yes that’s right, your Seattle Seahawks have won two games in a row, and now take that momentum heading into their bye week.
Up next for the Seahawks is a show down in Miami against the Dolphins against another ex Pete Carroll star, Reggie Bush.
With 6 games remaining, the Hawks look to be in a great spot, and should be able to get into the post season barring...
The Seattle Seahawks hosted the New York Jets Sunday in what was considered a must-win game for both teams. While there is great parity between the two teams’ records, a lot was on the line for both. Seattle is fighting for a playoff spot while the Jets are fighting themselves and the media circus they’ve created.
With that playoff spot in mind, Seattle players seem...
Seahawks win it in second half

What started out as an awful first half of football by both teams, lead to a second half of football that was the most complete half of the 2012 season for the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks showed that they are mean, they are...
I know I just talked about how much I love The Real Rob Report, but this voting edition is so hilarious. In this video, we find out which Seattle Seahawks voted, who they voted for, why some didn’t vote, and who they would have voted for if they would have voted…which they didn’t.
Also, Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman (briefly) comment on current coverage rules vs. the...
(Note: Since I was redoing my spreadsheets anyway, I went ahead and revamped the tables I've been using for the stats articles as well. That part took a heck of a lot longer than I thought it would, but such is life.)
Entering their bye week, the Seahawks’ record stands at 6-4 with six games left to play in the season. Last year, the team was 4-6 after ten games, and...

Don’t talk about playoffs. Actually, let’s talk about the playoffs. We could get all hung up on tie-breaker scenarios and the what-ifs, but if the Seahawks can get to 10-6 they should be in the...
