ROB TOBECK, arguably the greatest Cougar center this side of Mel Hein, is six years removed from his memorable run with Seattle Seahawks yet he looks fit enough to suit up tomorrow. In fact, the other day when he demonstrated the blocking technique WSU tackle John Fullington used on the play that nullified the Jeff Tuel-to-Marquess Wilson TD pass at BYU, it was clear his biceps remain NFL ready.

“The UDFA” – Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin in the spotlight

Seahawks All Access Last season, heading into training camp, Doug Baldwin was simply hoping to make the final roster.  Coming out of Stanford, it was easy to see that the young receiver was extremely talented, unfortunately, for his wallet, and fortunately, for the Seattle Seahawks, Doug didn’t have the “measurables”. He’s not extremely fast, he is extremely short, and although...

Report: Seahawks may bench Braylon Edwards in favor of Golden Tate

According to Eric D. Williams of the Tacoma News, it looks like there’s a good chance that wide receiver Golden Tate will take over as the Seahawks’ starting split.  Braylon Edwards has been starting in his spot since he got injured in training camp, but Edwards struggled against Patrick Peterson lat week. Seahawks receiver Golden Tate practiced fully for the first time since...

Well week one’s finalists for top play came down to...

Seattle Seahawks: Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#24)

Last week: 25 (+1) Record: 0-1 That sound you just heard was Russell Wilson’s bandwagon hitting a pole. As I’ve said all along, Wilson is far more likely to go the way of Quincy Carter, Chris Weinke, and Kyle Orton than Andy Dalton (the only 4 non-1st round picks to start at quarterback week 1 as a rookie since 1994). It certainly doesn’t help that his offensive line and receiving...

Report: WR Tate works with Seahawks' first unit

The Tacoma News Tribune reported that Tate displayed good hands and speed while working with the first unit as the Seahawks prepared for Sunday’s game against Dallas.

Seahawks hope penalty problems just 1 week issue

Pete Carroll spent most of last season dealing with the Seattle Seahawks' inordinate amount of penalties. There were 138 to be exact, a franchise record and the second most in the NFL last season. So with the penalty problem being a point of emphasis, what did the Seahawks do in the season opener at Arizona? They committed 13 more infractions, tied for the most in Week 1. ...

Kam Chancellor to play vs. 49ers

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said after practice on Wednesday that Chancellor would be able to go against the 49ers on Thursday night.

According to Rotoworld.com, Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee injury. Rice is a heck of a player when he’s healthy, but it looks like it’s almost impossible for him to not get injured  We’ll be monitoring his status throughout the week.

Wilson shaky in Seahawks debut

(Eds: Adds details. With AP Photos.) Facing 80 yards and needing a touchdown with less than five minutes to play, Russell Wilson felt right at home. Wilson's rigorous preparation and attention to detail that helped earn him the starting job for the Seattle Seahawks as a rookie left him completely ready to face the task that lay in front of him. ''It wasn't any different...

The "Pete Caroll for Arkansas head coach meme" exists, is stupid.

It was inevitable this was going to happen. Current Seattle Seahawks head football coach Pete Caroll was once a lowly graduate assistant at Arkansas in 1977. Things aren't going as planned in Seattle. Things aren't a barrel of monkeys back in Fayettville these days either, what with that messy Bobby Petrino stuff during the offseason. Worse, The Razorbacks lost to Louisiana...
