Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
The issue of concussions and the NFL continues to be a hot button topic. The always outspoken Seahawks CB Richard Sherman recently weighed in on the topic. Sherman explained how players that want to play will do whatever to stay on the field and detailed how he once hid a concussion.
“On the game’s seventh play, I trailed my receiver down the left sideline and looked back to see Andy Dalton toss it underneath to Chris Pressley, their 260-pound fullback,” Sherman said. “As he turned up the sideline I came down hard, squared up, and dove at his legs. His right knee connected with my temple, flipping him over my head. I got up quickly and shook my head back and forth to let them know nobody is running me over.”
The problem was that I couldn’t see,” Sherman wrote. “The concussion blurred my vision and I played the next two quarters half-blind, but there was no way I was coming off the field with so much at stake. It paid off: Just as my head was clearing, Andy Dalton lobbed one up to r...

It seems Seattle Seahawks fans everywhere will be getting an early Christmas present in week eight or nine: The return of wide receiver Percy Harvin after his hip surgery in the off-season.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman loves to talk. The latest thing he is saying might get him talking with someone from the league office about player safety. The talkative CB detailed in The MMQB how he got his first concussion and played through it, even getting an interception in the process:
“On the game’s seventh play, I trailed my receiver down the left sideline and looked back...
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was asked what wide receiver Percy Harvin has to do to show him he’s ready to play.
“He’s got to get through normal days of practice and we’ll see how he handles it. With the thought we’ve been going with all along is to take the conservative approach and make sure our guys are healthy and so we’re going to continue to do that. We’ve...
That’s right. Get giddy, Seattle. It’s the news Seahawks fans have been waiting on for countless weeks. Percy Harvin is coming back very soon.
Before he can play anytime soon, he’ll need to be added to the 53-man roster. Other than that, it’s just a matter of all parties being satisfied enough for Harvin to return.

Harvin, of course...
Seahawks have an easy schedule the rest of the year and to be honest they should be able to sweep the board. If the Seahawks get Percy Harvin back at full strength can a team actually beat them? The Seahawks and Broncos look like the teams to beat right now in the NFL. Seattle’s remaining […]
In his Wednesday press conference, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll gave some updates on WR Percy Harvin's performance at practice this week. While Harvin is under close watch and his possible return against the St. Louis Rams Monday night, the coach sounded cautious, but optimistic.
While the world eagerly awaits WR Percy Harvin Seahawks debut, one player's return last week already has the offense looking in pretty good shape. Tight end Zack Miller returned last week after missing two weeks with a hamstring issue, becoming WB Russell Wilson's frequent option on third down, catching five passes for 40 yards and a 15-yard touchdown against Arizona.
Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman was a rookie with the opportunity to step into the starting lineup at cornerback against the Bengals in 2011.

Sherman says he got up and...

This is a smart move by the Seahawks. They’re playing great football without Harvin...
If you have been reading my Seattle Seahawks pieces over the last couple seasons, you may remember me doing a few player profiles like “Punting Canadian” in the past. My editor has asked me to start writing these weekly, as time permits.
I was going to start last week by writing one about Steven Hauschka after his attempted tackle, but time definitely did not permit...
-Russell Wilson – QB – Seattle Seahawks -
Monday Night Football Week 8 is upon us and unfortunately it’s a dreadful matchup. The Seahawks head to St. Louis to take on the Rams. I think Seattle is going to absolute steamroll the Rams in every sense of the word. ESPN can not be happy about how this one shaped up. Wilson and Lynch will take the defenseless and virtually...
It’s no secret, women know sports
They aren’t buying Seahawks jerseys to look fashionable or picking favorite players based off their perfectly sculpted asses.
Oh no, women are genuinely interested in a team’s offensive capabilities or their 4-3 defense or the injuries plaguing their offensive line.
They don’t have time to get men their beers mid-game or fix addicting snacks...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By WARREN MAYES Associated Press The St. Louis Rams' weakness will be severely tested by the Seattle Seahawks' strength.
The Rams' run defense, ranked 30th in the NFL at 126 yards a game, will have its hands full against a Seattle rushing attack led by Marshawn Lynch that is second in the league.
''Marshawn, in my opinion, is the toughest...
