Posted November 05, 2012 on AP on Fox
Pete Carroll called it a textbook example of how the Seattle Seahawks want to close out a victory, with the ball in their hands and the final seconds ticking away. It only came after Carroll watched Adrian Peterson gash his defense for the entire first half. The Seahawks' 30-20 win over Minnesota on Sunday snapped Seattle's two-game losing streak and continued its run of success at home. Thanks to the running of Marshawn Lynch, overshadowed at times by Peterson, the Seahawks (5-4) were able to control the ball for nearly the final 12 minutes, never giving Minnesota a chance to rally. Lynch rushed for 124 yards, including 69 in the second half. While his running allowed Seattle to control the clock, its defense made adjustments to try and contain Peterson, who finished with 182 yards.

GIF: Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice completes pass on trick play

This was a great play that was drawn up, and pretty much everyone on the defense bit on the wide receiver screen.  The execution was even more impressive and while it wasn’t the greatest throw of all-time, Seahawks TE Zach Miller made a hell of a catch off the pass from Sidney Rice.  It’s just a shame that this one didn’t go for six, otherwise it would be the play of the day.Via: SB Nation

Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks: Five Things We Learned

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch set the standard for what is known as "beast mode".What it means is that a runner is running with such ferocity and power, that the very Earth trembles beneath it every time they carry the ball.I chose those words on purpose, because for me the first time I saw Lynch go "beast mode" was in a Wild Card playoff game following...

Charly Martin Released By Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks have announced Tuesday that wide receiver Charly Martin has been released. Martin had only four catches for 42 yards this season.  He primarily played on special teams.  With a spot open on the roster in mind, note that cornerback Walter Thurmond has been back in practice the last two weeks after being on the PUP list.  Thurmond broke his left leg last October...

Seattle will be the team that starts Tebow Mania in New York

When the Seattle Seahawks are at home they are almost impossible to beat, because those fans and players realize they play extremely well at home. Russell Wilson looks like a probowler when he plays at home as well. Russell Wilson completed 16-of-24 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns versus the Vikings in Week 9. Wilson found Golden Tate for scores for six and 11 yards and...

The Seahawks' Coverage Problems versus the Lions

[Note: This article was supposed to go up late last week, but due to other concerns it had to go unfinished until now.  But while the subject matter is a bit past tense, if nothing else I figured it’d serve as a nice frame of reference when I take a look at the game tape for the Vikings game.] The Seahawks’ pass coverage against the Lions was ugly, and looking at it on...

Charly Martin Released

Earlier today, the Seahawks released wide receiver Charly Martin.  It's presumed that the move was made in order to make room for cornerback Walter Thurmond, but Thurmond still hasn't been officially activated off of the physically unable to play list. As much as I like the idea of having Thurmond available again, I'm a bit torn about cutting Martin.  He isn'...

Seahawks MMQB: Defense? Seattle is an offense town!

Growin’ up before our eyes Boxscore | Play-by-Play | Q’s Post Game Recap Last week the offense played well enough to win, but the defense gave the game away.  This week the offense held the ball for 1o minutes and 53 seconds of the fourth quarter, including the final 5:27, where they converted on two 4th downs, to put the game away. In all fairness, the defense tightened up...

Week 9 - Seahawks Win! (R-Rated Thread)

Adrian Peterson is a hell of a running back (losing K.J. Wright early hurt the run defense in a big way), but it's hard to win games when your quarterback only manages to throw for 62 yards. More importantly, the Seahawks offense was able to overcome some bad drops early on and move the chains when it needed to most, thanks in large part to a good performance by Russell Wilson...

The NHL Lockout Could Possibly End Today

Oh Pete Carroll, you ol' horn dog.Last week, due to the NHL lockout, the league canceled its best regular season event of the season, as it pulled the plug on the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, which would have been played in freezing temperatures in front of 100,000 people at the University of Michigan. That should have been one of the coolest – literally and figuratively...
