SEATTLE- Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is understandably fighting to figure out who his guy his going to be.
When I say his guy think of what Peyton Manning meant to Tony Dungy. The two of them will be forever linked to each other.
After they yanked former Packers back-up Matt Flynn from the jaws of the Dolphins, it was assumed that Caroll was rolling the dice on Flynn being his...
The Seahawks landed one of the drafts most impressive power backs in Robert Turbin.
Owner of a 4.50 40-time at 222 lbs, Turbin has an impressive power and speed blend especially when considering he paced all running backs with 28 bench press reps at the combine, something usually reserved for smaller backs.
Turbin is impressive on film and screams lead back in a committee but that...
Before the season begins, the Seahawks will have to name their starting quarterback. Prior to the draft, it looked like it would be between Tarvaris Jackson and Matt Flynn. You can now throw third round pick Russell Wilson in the fray. Pete Carroll told the team's website, "He showed us enough. He's in the competition. That is going to tax us, as we know. It was already...
The Seattle Seahawks selected University of Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, as his perceived physical limitations (5'11" tall) led to him falling down the draft some. The Seahawks definitely took the best player available at that stage, and it looked like Wilson would spend his rookie season on the bench while incumbent Tavaris...
We've learned today via his twitter feed that 2012 Seattle Seahawks UDFA London Durham a CB from McNeese St. has been released.
Durham was with the Seahawks for 17 days. He was a UDFA signed after the draft. (Apr 28th)
He had the size (6-2) but obviously not what PCJS were looking for.
Here's his tweet.
London Durham CB #10 McNeese State
Class: Senior 3V
Seahawks Linebacker Malcolm Smith took to Twitter today to thank his mom for a job well done.
Seahawks third round quarterback Russell Wilson showed head coach Pete Carroll enough during this weekend's rookie mini-camp that he will get a chance to compete for the starting job, reports Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune. "Hes showed us enough," Carroll said as the three-day camp concluded on Sunday. "Hes in the competition. And that is going to...
Russell Wilson made the most of his initial rookie camp with the Seahawks. By the end of the three days of workouts, head coach Pete Carroll deemed Wilson ready to enter the competition for the starting quarterback job with Matt Flynn and Tarvaris Jackson. "He's in the competition. That is going to tax us, as we know," Carroll said Sunday. "It was already going...
In the end of April we were told by GM John Schneider that Seahawks' first-round pick in the 2011 NFL draft, T James Carpenter would likely not be ready for 2012 training camp.
Schneider said the knee injury Carpenter suffered in November during practice was a really bad injury and his recovery has been slow.
That would be overly optimistic...
The hits just keep on coming this NFL offseason. Free agency started off with a bang, with the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, the Saints and bounty scandal, and the draft. The Seattle Seahawks have already signed nine of their ten draft picks, including first round pick Bruce Irvin, more on him later. What a difference a year makes huh? This time last year we, as fans, weren’t worried...
For the second consecutive year, the Seattle Seahawks whiffed in the 1st round and demonstrated a complete lack of understanding as to how to effectively use the draft to rebuild a franchise. While the Seahawks have some talent, they’re headed in the wrong direction.
I thought the selection of James Carpenter was bad last year, but Bruce Irvin may be worse. Not only was Irvin a...
Seahawks rookie 3rd round pick Russell Wilson made the most of the recently finished 3 day rookie camp.

"He's in the competition. That is going to tax us, as we know," Carroll said Sunday. "It was already going to...

The Seattle Seahawks wheeled and dealed their way through the 2012 NFL Draft. They started the draft with 6 picks, including no pick in the 5th round. After trading down in the first and second round, they acquired their 4 extra draft picks and were primed to make a run at the later rounds.
As we all know, they have found great success in later rounds.
