Coach Pete Carroll has had a few off the field issues to deal with, performance enhancing drugs, the comings and goings of Marshawn Lynch, and former backup QB Josh Portis arrested for DUI. However, Carroll has kept his team's focus on the task at hand, installing their sytems, acclimating rookies, and finding out who can do what and get them into effective roles. "We’ve installed enough offensively and defensively, team-wise, that we can kind of work on the things we’re counting on," Carroll said, via Dave Boling of The News-Tribune. "We won’t experiment (in minicamp) at all. We’ll really be digging into the things that we think are really the basic aspects of the program. We’ve uncovered some things that we like in these 10 days, so we’ll look to … get an image of what it’s going to look like when we come back to camp." "We’ve had tremendous opportunities to see our guys come back and get after it with the right attitude and the right kind of tempo that we’re familiar with, and also see the young guys fit in," Carroll said. "… So we’ve made a ton of progress."

Richard Sherman is great but reminds me too much of Antoine Dodson

Richard Sherman is great but reminds me too much of Antoine Dodson  While I am not taking anything away from Seattle Seahawks shutdown corner Richard Sherman’s play, his mouth has really set him up for a huge season.  It is make or break for him this year, because of all the trash he has talked.  I think he is a very good player and I defend him quite a bit, but lately it is...

Seahawks GM defends his team on PED issues: '“It’s just not what people think'

A whopping six violations for PED use in 3 years for one team is just one too many, but try telling that to Seahawks GM John Schneider. Sure, one suspension was reversed on appeal (or a technicality we should say), but it certainly doesn't diminish what has apparently ran rampant in Seattle. Schneider takes exception to those fans and media members who are calling it a big...
