Sidney Rice is the Seahawks most talented receiver, but there is a reason he has been overlooked in the passing game. The oft-injured Rice didnt have a chance to work with new quarterback Russell Wilson in the offseason because he was rehabbing from shoulder surgeries, and he missed a good portion of camp and the preseason. As a result, Wilson and Rice were not clicking very well on the field. While Rice was working his way back into the offense, Golden Tate became the teams primary vertical threat but its likely the Seahawks coaches will push Rice back to the forefront now. Its obvious they need his big play potential. Source: National Football Post Attached Thumbnails

Pete Carroll has always been known for his very positive attitude, but sometimes his positivity can be a bit of a stretch. On Monday, Carroll called into 710 AM in Seattle to chat about his 4-4 Seahawks and he proceeded to let the world know how his Seahawks are “so close” to 8-0.
“It’s so close. We’re so encouraged by where we are and what we’ve done,” Carroll said...
What started out as a mild concern for the Seattle Seahawks became a full-blown issue after losing to Detroit.
If there had been one knock on the Seahawks' impressive defense, it was the unit's problems getting off the field on third down. Those problems were accentuated Sunday by what the Lions' were able to do in a 28-24 win that left Seattle with a 4-4 record.
Pro Football Weekly hears the Seahawks are quite pleased with the surprisingly strong play of former first-round draft pick James Carpenter at left guard since returning from a knee injury that most close observers thought would take him longer to recover from. Whats been so big is how much hes been able to stay on the field, one daily team observer said. Marshawn Lynch...
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman seemed to have no shortage of confidence all week heading into his matchup with Calvin Johnson and the Detroit Lions. Megatron is probably the most difficult receiver in the game to cover, but Sherman indicated he was up for the task when he changed his Twitter name to something that suited the occasion.
The Lions may have come out victorious...
Where is Braylon Edwards?
Anybody familiar with the Detroit Lions 1 – 1 record in their last two games know that Chicago’s use of Brandon Marshall was considerable in defeating the Lions. Is there another receiver more similar to Brandon Marshall than Braylon Edwards? Please share. I know Sidney Rice is a sizable comparison to Braylon Edwards.
Could Braylon be traded to the Dolphins...

That was the message that Peter Cullen (the voice of Optimus Prime from the “Transformers” movies) left on Richard Sherman’s voice mail, according to the Fox game broadcast of the Seattle Seahawks vs. Detroit Lions. Peter learned that Richard changed his name on twitter to “Optimus Prime” in response...
Braylon Edwards was inactive on Sunday after his knee swelled unexpectedly, Ben Obomanu suffered a wrist injury in Detroit and Doug Baldwin is unlikely to be back for this week's game after suffering a high ankle sprain on Oct. 18.
That's some serious uncertainty at wide receiver, which means the Seahawks might be making changes to the 53-man roster.
"We have to...
The Seahawks let a chance to cure their road woes slip away in Detroit, while the Rams were far from OK in the U.K. on Sunday.
It’s been a well-known fact that Marshawn Lynch is a beast. Against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks star running back burst out for a 77-yard touchdown in the second quarter to put the team up 10-7.
However, Seattle ended up losing the game, 28-24.

The Seahawks will be playing their fifth road game of the season today against the Lions. Will Richard Sherman and the rest of the secondary be able to contain Calvin Johnson and Brandon Pettigrew? Can Wilson and his receivers put up some points against a suspect Lions secondary? Does Detroit have enough healthy defenders left on the roster to put eleven guys on the field?
