Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is on a mission to validate his franchise as a serious contender. Well Seattle takes on Detroit at 1:00 this Sunday, and Sherman decided to go Transformers on us. We all know Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson carries the Label Megatron, and carries it very well. Well I’m assuming Sherman wants Johnson to know he is his equal because he changes his twitter handle to Optimus Prime.  Sunday should be a good matchup between the two, and I give the edge to Johnson. Want I want to know though is do they have the name’s backwards, because Megatron is the villain, and Optimus Prime is the hero. Nevermind.

Seattle to be without WR Doug Baldwin vs. Detroit

Outside of some sore ribs and an ankle that was a little gimpy, injuries never became a major problem for Doug Baldwin during his breakout rookie season. It's why Baldwin was able to lead the Seattle Seahawks in receiving, becoming the first undrafted rookie to lead his team in pass catches in more than 50 years. This year, it's been a different health story for Baldwin...

Seattle Seahawks versus Detroit Lions could come down to Optimus Prime vs. Megatron

Man, it already feels like it’s been forever since the Seahawks last played. Sure it’s been less than a week, but that doesn’t stop it from feeling like a long time. Part of that feeling is most likely due to a desire to leave the last game the Seahawks played. I’m not saying that the Seahawks didn’t play well last Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers. All I...

DT Jones doubtful to play

Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jason Jones is doubtful to play against the Detroit Lions on Sunday with an ankle injury. Jones has been unable to practice all week after suffering the injury against the San Francisco 49ers last Thursday night. Jones has 2 1/2 sacks on the season primarily as a situational pass rusher. If he's unable to play, rookie Greg Scruggs will pick...

Be it by giving the opposing offense awful starting field position, or Leon Washington electrifying the game with a stunning return...

Seattle DB trolls Calvin Johnson

Before they match up on Sunday, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman changed his Twitter name to let everyone know he's not intimidated by Megatron. 

Moments in time…The Seattle Seahawks week that was

Ouch, a heart breaker in SF Another road game, and another lack of a passing game, or scratch that, another lack of a receiving game is more like it. The Seahawks have had this issue for the balance of this century, yes, even in the Super Bowl year. It’s nothing new to write about, or to get peeved about, or to even care about really. This is just one of those things that is...

Seattle's Sherman ready for Detroit's 'Megatron'

Leave it to Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman to come up with a new way of talking about an opponent without saying a word. Sherman, who drew plenty of attention after Seattle's win over New England for his comments about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, changed his name on his Twitter page Wednesday to ''Optimus Prime,'' a Transformers character. That wouldn...

NFL Rumors: Did Richard Sherman Wake A Sleeping Giant In Calvin Johnson With Transformers Remark?

Richard Sherman talks a big game. He did it against Tom Brady. He will do it with any player. Sherman and his Seattle Seahawks secondary has been stellar in 2012, and they will look to continue their run against another once vaunted pass offense in the Detroit Lions. But Sherman may have done something that is ill advised. He may have woken a sleeping giant. Well, not a real giant...

A Tale of Two Halves

Last Thursday’s road game against the 49ers was supremely frustrating to watch.  The Seahawks looked awful, and that’s led to a lot of fans voicing opinions of the “fire coach X and/or bench player Y” variety.  That’s understandable, but I think it’s premature to be calling for changes that drastic.  Right now, the Seahawks are 3-0 at home and 1-3 on the road, with...
