I have taken some huge hits from readers on this site about my thoughts of Seattle and an assignment I did on why the Seahawks won’t make the playoffs this season.Just so everyone knows, a writer can be wrong every now and then. This may be one of those cases.The Seahawks look primed to give San Francisco, Atlanta, Green Bay and New Orleans a true run for their money.As Seattle opens the 2013 season, the only real question that needs to be answered is can this team overtake the 49ers, who are still licking their wounds after the Super Bowl loss to Baltimore, as the top dog in the NFC West?The fact the Seahawks could be even better than last season is a good thing for the NFL and Seahawks fans.The Carolina Panthers are trying to prove they can be a player in the race for a playoff spot this season. Cam Newton, in his third season, will try to prove last season was just a sophomore slump and hopefully, he can return to his rookie form.Can Steve Smith continue to thrive as the lead rec...
BEST OF MAXIM
Here’s an interesting look into what makes Seattle Seahawks Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas such great players. Both members of Seattle’s famous “Legion of Boom”, Sherman and Thomas teamed up with the Sport Science crew to examine their athletic abilities in an attempt to figure out why they are so successful. Definitely an interesting video worth watching.
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is a certified loudmouth who has gained his reputation around NFL circles — players, media, fans — thanks to on-field antics, as well as alleged off-field transgressions. What people often forget is that Sherman is also a very motivated fifth-round pick out of Stanford, who can be rather eloquent at times (Sherm refers to himself as...
Start ‘em & Sit ‘em Week 1
Fantasy Football - Seattle Seahawks Week 1 predictions
The 2013 NFL season is finally upon us, and for the Seattle Seahawks it brings with it a mountain of expectations. That said, there are only a few sure-fire Fantasy starters on the roster. Marshawn Lynch as always is a must-start with the defense projecting to be a top 10 unit in Week 1, but...
Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner was a surprise limited-participant in
practice on Wednesday due to a strained hamstring, according to ESPN.com's Terry Blount. Browner played in all four of Seattle’s preseason games without any
problems. This particular injury popped up somewhat mysteriously leaving his
availability for this weekend in question. It is possible head...
Seahawks announced their preliminary eight-man practice squad for the 2013
season on Monday, according to ESPN.com's Terry Blount. As expected, Seattle
had several players poached off of waivers from other teams before they could
get signed to the practice squad. For example, the Kansas City Chiefs claimed
tight end Sean McGrath, defensive back Ron Parker, and defensive...
Seahawk wide receiver Percy Harvin hinted at a possible week 7 return this week
on Twitter, according to NFL.com's Marc Sessler. Harvin’s official Twitter
account read “keep an eye on week 7” when referring to his progress. The former
University of Florida playmaker has been sidelined with a torn labrum after
being acquired by the Seahawks this past offseason. Many...
Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin tweeted Wednesday that fans should "keep an eye on week 7."Fantasy Spin:Harvin informed the public that he is "making serious progress" in his recovery from hip surgery. While it's unlikely Harvin will be back immediately after his stay on the PUP list ends, fantasy owners should target him late in drafts because he could very...
Sherman and Browner (@Seahawks)
With this current secondary, the Seattle Seahawks can boast one the greatest defensive units of all time but on one condition: they must win a Lombardi trophy. Legacies matter in sports, especially football, so if Seattle, particularly their safeties and corner backs wish to enter the pantheon of NFL legend and pigskin lore, a Super Bowl ring,...
Prediction: 1st in division (13-3 overall)
Strengths: The 12th man. The Seahawks are just brutal to play at home. Defense gave up just over 11 points per game last season at home. They didn’t lose a game at home either. Oh and Marshawn Lynch is a beast. Russell Wilson is a stud. And Pete Carroll just loves winning.
Causes for concern: Not too many causes for concern...
Cam Newton hasn’t been in the NFL long but he knows the importance of being voted a team captain by your peers. This is what he said about it during training camp:
“I recognize, and everyone knows around the league, when you’re a team captain, that’s not just a patch on the jersey,” Newton said. “You’re holding yourself to a higher standard with being accountable....
On Thursday, September 5th, the 2013-14 NFL Season kicks off. I cannot tell you how I happy I am to write those words, considering the roller coaster NFL off-season that has just been completed.
Break the Road Mold
Oh sweet 6 pound, 7 ounce baby Jesus. The NFL and our Seahawks 2013 championship season has finally come!
Never in Seattle sports history has a season been so hyped and anticipated.
The agonizing wait of the preseason has felt like being slow-cooked in a crock pot of football teasers and mock fantasy drafts for 7 months. But my friends, the wait is over. The Seahawks...
