Seattle Seahawks beat writer, 12th man, and seahawks season ticket holder Brett Bivens is calling out his fellow 12th man fans of Seattle. If you are one of those booing Tarvaris Jackson and calling for Charlie what in the world are you thinking? Do you really think it helps?

Twenty-one second-half points and 186 passing yards in the same span begs the question:
If the Seahawks are so much more effective when they run a no-huddle offense, why don’t they just do it all the time?
“We definitely could. It’s not like two-minute, like we’re rushing,” Seahawks...
Tarvaris Jackson passed for a career-high 319 yards and threw three TD passes, but Seattle's second-half rally wasn't enough to overtake Atlanta.
After each week of the regular season and possibly during the NFL playoffs should the Seattle Seahawks be so lucky Dave B will stop by and bring you his Seahawks game balls article. Balls are awarded to the Seahawks Offensive MVP Tarvaris Jackson, and on Defense Cornerback Marcus Trufant vs. the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4.
Every Seahawks loss is a gut punch to me- But I bounce back quicker from certain losses, and my emotions evolved from crushing disappointment to hopeful optimism within minutes after Hauschka's 61-yard attempt fell short. Why am I going to go through the next week without the usual fog of despair that typically overcomes me after a Seahawks loss? 1. They fought. Yes, the Seahawks...
Our man on the Seahawks beat Brandon Choate weighs in on this week's battle versus the Atlanta Falcons. The Seahawks need to contain Matt Ryan and the Seattle offensive line needs to give Tarvaris Jackson time to make plays.
The Atlanta Falcons had a 27-7 lead near the beginning of the third quarter. A friend texted me from work asking me how the Seahawks were doing, and I responded “they’re getting killed.” The Falcon offense was running smoothly, and the game looked to be firmly in Atlanta’s control. However, like they have done in nearly every game this season (not against Pittsburgh...
Turner needs to be running the ball for the Falcons to have success on SundayAcross the fansided network each week during this season, we will be doing a quick Q&A with the Falcons’ opponents for that week. This week I had a chance to talk with Keith Myers from 12th Man Rising about this Sundays match up between the Falcons and Seahawks.Blogging Dirty – The Seahawks have...
Beware Jackson-to-Rice combination
The Falcons must contain Seattle's "Minnesota Connection."
Offensive coordinator Darryl Bevell, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and wide receiver Sidney Rice all came over from Minnesota in the offseason to spruce up the Seahawks' offense.
The passing combination of Jackson-to-Rice must be shut down in order to stall the Seahawks...
The Seahawks lost a close one today, but from what I saw on the field I'm excited to see what this team can do in the coming weeks. I think SeaHawk Steve said it best in the game thread: "What I am seeing is [the Seahawks] growing up into a contender level." The Seahawks are improving every week, and if they keep that up it won't be long before their record...
On a weekend when the Huskies dominated Utah in the second half and the Cougars pulled off a last-minute victory at Colorado, it was too much to hope the Seahawks might actually rally to beat Atlanta after trailing by 20 in the third quarter.
After all, the Seahawks must learn to walk before they can fly.
The exciting 30-28 loss, decided only when Steven Hauschka missed a 61-yard...
Seahawks coach should have put ball in hands of quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and trusted his offense.
My story today profiles James Carpenter. Throughout exhibition play, Seattle’s first-round draft choice looked wide-eyed and appeared to be playing in quick sand, as he struggled to protect quarterback Tarvaris Jackson from the league’s talented edge rushers, giving up three sacks alone against Denver a month ago. Carpenter, 22, was out of shape and lost, so much so that Seattle...
Three things we learned
The Seahawks have some scrap to them.Close won't count in the standings, but Seattle's second-half rally against Atlanta constitutes a significant improvement over the past couple seasons when the Seahawks tended to go from bad to awful. Over the previous two seasons, Seattle faced 14 halftime deficits of 10 or more points. The Seahawks lost 13 of...
