Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Seattle...:
RENTON — Seahawks defensive end Raheem Brock says he’s still waiting to make his case to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about the $15,000 fine he was slapped with for rolling into Ben Roethlisberger’s legs in Week 2.
So the appeal is still pending. But Brock indicated Thursday on Twitter that things aren’t looking too promising.
“Update on my fine…NFL rule says if u intentionally or unintentionally hit or fall into the QB’s legs its still a Fine!”
Brock’s main argument, of course, is that he was tripped into Roethlisberger’s legs by Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert. Replays showed that as Brock was completing a spin move to get past Gilbert, the rookie tackle extended his leg and appeared to trip Brock. As a result, the defensive end fell into Roethlisberger’s legs, drawing a 15-yard penalty and later a $15,000 fine.
At least he has some cool shoes, though. Check out the neon green kicks Brock was rocking in the locker room today.

BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Pete Carroll wants the Seattle Seahawks to be able to run the football, knowing that an effective ground game is what makes play-action passing successful.
But through four games, Seattle has the fewest rushing attempts of any team in the league and fewer yards gained on the ground than everyone expect the Tennessee Titans. Leading rusher Marshawn Lynch has only 141 yards rushing...
1. Marshawn Lynch
Marshawn Lynch is overrated. If it weren’t for his ridiculous touchdown run (and some poor Saints tackling) in the 2010 NFC playoffs, most people would not remember what team he was on. In 16 games with the Seahawks, he is averaging a measly 3.4 yards per carry behind an offensive line that doesn’t do him many favors. But you can’t take any opponent for granted...

We were always big fans of Erin Hawksworth, a sports reporter for Seattle’s Fox affiliate, but now we’re bigger fans.
The station cut to Hawksworth, who was talking to fans in a chat room, prior to last weekend’s Seahawks game. The anchor asks her what the fans are saying and she quotes one verbatim.
As is usually the case in chat rooms, the fan she quoted was letting the...
RENTON -- Pete Carroll doesn't just expect the best-case scenario, he relies upon it.
He's willing to err on the side of optimism even if it costs his team points.
And it has.
But this has nothing to do with Steven Hauschka's 61-yard field-goal attempt on Sunday against Atlanta. That's only the latest example of end-of-the-half play-calling that could be charitably...

from The Olympian:
“I asked how many of our guys have played in New York,” Carroll told reporters this week. “And a few guys raised their hands, and I said, ‘Well, we’re playing in New Jersey.’ ”
“No matter what sport you’re in, when you play in New York it’s a cool thing,” Carroll said. “It just always has been because of the great history and the tradition...
I don’t see it the same way, that he has struggled. I say they have played some teams that have made hard nights for him. The other night was a ridiculously challenging defense that they went up against. I thought he was battling like crazy and I know he wants to be cleaner in the numbers and they start to add up a bit, but just like he has in the past, he will bounce back and...
