Third And Wrong:
All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman, of the Seattle Seahawks, is back again with another well-written column over at Peter King and Sports Illustrated‘s MMQB. This time, it’s about the way the business side of football can surprise you when a veteran leader like Seattle full back Michael Robinson is released. It’s a great piece and gives the reader insight into what it feels like to lose a respected friend and colleague in the football world. Here’s a great excerpt:
Over the next three months we continued on a championship grind, working through minicamp, training camp and, last Thursday, the final preseason game. The following Friday afternoon I dozed off while watching television and woke up to this tweet from Mike: “Been real #12thMan will always have love for ya.”
I gave him a call immediately. He was just as shocked as I was, and I could tell he needed some space and time to figure things out.
The feeling was surreal: They really cut Mike Robinson? There’s no way, I thought. ...

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...
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.

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...
The loss of Percy Harvin to a torn labrum before he ever played a snap for the Seahawks was a big one though it wasn't necessarily a season-wrecking one. After all Seahawks football is defense + Marshawn Lynch. Plus Percy was likely going to come back eventually.
But could his return be even sooner than expected? Harvin threw a wrinkle everyone's way on Wednesday afternoon...

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...
