Found March 26, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:

According to Seahawks.com, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is organizing a passing session with his wide receivers down in Southern California, in preparation for their offseason work out program. “Just get together and throw, and just get our minds ready and our bodies ready for a great season,” Wilson said, per Seahawks.com. This should not come as a surprise. It was Wilson who met with Percy Harvin in the film room – or “his office,” as teammates refer to it – the day it was announced that the receiver/returner/runner had been acquired in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings. It was Wilson who left detailed notes about the upcoming opponent in the cubicles of his receivers each Monday during the season. It’s Wilson who still ends every interview session or public appearance with his now-trademark “Go Hawks!” “The team we’re going to have next season is very exciting,” Wilson said. “But it’s a new year and it’s going to present new challenges. I think the key is guys staying healthy, guys getting ready for the season and really preparing – mentally and physically.” The Seahawks are arguably one of the top teams in the NFC and Wilson’s work ethic is a big reason why they’re a threat to make a deep run in the playoffs in 2013.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Not Make the Playoffs in 2013

Before I begin this article, let me make a few points clear:1) I am a huge fan of Russell Wilson. What he did in the regular season AND the postseason are feats that can not be ignored.  He is a rare talent and I believe he will have long-term success in the NFL.2) I love the environment that CenturyLink Field brings to the NFL. It is a stadium you must visit if you are a die...

Harnessing New Seattle Seahawk Percy Harvin

Well that was an exciting period of free agency.  I finally was able to come out of hibernation after being a free agency glutton for the past two weeks.  My diet consisted of a strict regimen of Adam Schefter, Chris Mortenson and Ben Volin tweets.  And sparingly, Jeff Darlington, but only on my cheat days. One thing I wanted to add before we jump into the acquisition of Percy...

Pete Carroll thinks Percy Harvin’s attitude could work for him: ‘I think that’s classic of a competitor that sometimes they push the limits’

Coach Pete Carroll always walks on the bright side of the street, and the Seattle Seahawks see things other NFL miss, but the verdict is still out on receiver Percy Harvin. Carroll knows the team took a big gamble trading and giving Harvin a top level contract. It’s a high risk move from a team that tends to make them very often with good results. Carroll feels he has a good...

Russell Wilson: A Top Five Fantasy Quarterback In 2013

The "E" Word

Louis Bacigalupi posts comments on the site as LouieLouie.  He’s an accountant by trade and worked in a USFL front office.  He can be reached by email at Louie@fiercelyI.com.
