I’m not saying this because of my Toby Gerhart sleeper post. I’m not saying this because I don’t believe in Adrian Peterson. I’m saying this because reality trumps fantasy every time. The fantasy is, AP is healthy and ready to go week 1 and you just drafted him in the 2nd round of your draft. The problem with your fantasy minus the whipped cream covering all the vital parts – seriously, maybe we should discuss therapy – is that in reality AP isn’t practicing real football right now. Despite all the Yo Gabba Gabba about AP being taken off the PUP list, there is one vital truth that needs to be noted: no one is allowed to touch him in practice right now. Yes, you read that right, AP is pulled off the PUP list but isn’t being touched in practice. Folks, it’s late August as of this writing and he still isn’t being tackled and in fact, the general threat from the team is the person who does tackle him gets cut. Now you tell me if that sounds like someone ready to go game one of

When the Seahawks signed Terrell Owens, it was certainly a very high profile signing. However, seemingly contrary to popular belief, TO is no lock to make the Seahawks’ roster, especially after a terrible showing in his 1st preseason game, where he didn’t catch a ball on 5 targets and dropped a sure 46 yard touchdown. Sidney Rice has begun doing contact drills and seems like...
According to the Seattle Times, Sidney Rice (shoulder) practiced without any limitations for the first time this preseason.Fantasy Spin:Rice took a hit from safety Earl Thomas that knocked him off his feet. The Seahawks' wide receiver "looked very fast out there," coach Pete Carroll said. Rice will have to compete with a suddenly crowded Seattle receiving corps that...
RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- After two dynamic second-half performances, rookie Russell Wilson is going to get his opportunity with the Seattle Seahawks' starting offense. And by starting Wilson, finding a winner in one of the last remaining quarterback competitions in the NFL will drag on another week closer to the start of the regular season. Seattle coach Pete Carroll, who announced...

If you make a statement like this, you need to have some facts or evidence to back it up. It would be naive to say that racism doesn’t exists in traffic stops.
Driving while Black is still a reality, but on the flip side of that you can’t use that as an excuse if you legitimately are breaking the law.
Here is what Lynch’s lawyer had to say.
Lynch was pulled over...
Linebacker Barrett Ruud was acquired by the Saints, who sent an undisclosed future draft pick to the Seahawks. Ruud was signed by Seattle after the Seahawks' starting middle linebacker, David Hawthorne, signed with New Orleans in free agency. The Seahawks then drafted Bobby Wagner in April, and the rookie has started the first two preseason games and had clearly won the job...
Ivan Golde, the attorney for Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is implying that race played a role in his DUI arrest. Yep you read that right, Golde is suggesting race played a role in Lynch getting arrested for driving under the influence. How’s that the case I have nooooooo idea.
Things are getting racial in the Marshawn Lynch DUI case — the NFL star’s lawyer...
Three weeks into training camp, it appears as though the three-way quarterback competition is finally winding down. Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson appear to be front-runners for the starting gig while Tarvaris Jackson is presumably the odd-man out. This shouldn't be alarming at all. What might be surprising, however, is the fact that Jackson has some legitimate trade value. Which...
Further proving that Matt Flynn will be the week 1 starter for the Seahawks, multiple reports have said that the Seahawks are looking to trade Tarvaris Jackson and will cut him if they can’t. These reports include ones from NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora and ESPN’s John Clayton. Clayton believes he will be traded as soon as possible as that he will not play another snap for...
Could we have 5 rookie starting quarterbacks week 1? Well, 4 have already been named, Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin, Ryan Tannehill, and Brandon Weeden and a 5th, the Seahawks’ Russell Wilson, will start in the team’s 3rd preseason game this week. 3rd preseason games are typically teams’ dress rehearsals for the regular season, when teams have their depth chart finalized. However...
What’s the deal with Collin Cowherd?
He’s one of the most influential sports talkers in the biz, he’s from Seattle, he talks about Seattle sports all the time…
But he never mentions what is happening with the Sounders.
They had more than 55,000 people attend over the weekend to see Seattle defeat the Vancouver Whitecaps 2-0. It was quite a scene as the Sounders gave fans...
According to ESPN’s John Clayton, the Seattle Seahawks aren’t expected to trade or release quarterback Tarvaris Jackson until around the fourth week of the preseason in case either Matt Flynn or Russell Wilson gets injured.
Once again, Tarvaris Jackson is not expected to play in Week 3. he will be released or traded around the fourth week of games.
