The great thing about the NFL is that there are so many positions that every year, there is almost always at least one player who has a breakout year on every team, no matter how good or bad the team is. This is one part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player for the 2012 NFL season on each NFL team. For the Seattle Seahawks, that player is quarterback Matt Flynn.
Matt Flynn was the latest in a line of backup quarterbacks to get a starting job and starting salary based on limited action backing up a proven and experienced starter. He joins a group that includes Matt Hasselbeck, AJ Feeley, Matt Schaub, Matt Cassel, and Kevin Kolb, among others, over the past decade. Aside from Hasselbeck and Schaub, no one from that group has really had any success, especially not lately, and Flynn, who the Seahawks signed to “compete” to be their starter (although the competition was essentially a formality, that’s just how the Seahawks operate), got a 3 year 19.5 million dolla...

The Seattle Seahawks under Pete Carroll have done everything but be predictable and the quarterback battle is no different. In 2010, the Seahawks not only made the playoffs at 7-9, but stunned the defending champion New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card Round. Then they drafted Alabama offensive lineman James Carpenter in the first round [...]
The Seattle Seahawks decided this past offseason that they had a wide receiving corps that was not exactly up to the standards of the rest of the National Football League. Not even if the watered down NFC West. Seattle went forward and cut Mike Williams, who had been one of their better receivers a couple of seasons ago. That left them with Ben Obomanu and Deon Butler atop the team’s...
ESPN Radio 710 in Seattle reports Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch seems to have gained an extra burst of speed after arriving at camp with a slimmer physique than in past seasons.Fantasy Spin:At his heaviest Lynch was around 225 pounds, which is 10 pounds heavier than he is listed at right now. The added quickness will be beneficial to Lynch when he finds an opening but having...
Tarvaris Jackson may be frustrated by the Seattle Seahawks’ quarterback competition, butRussell Wilson is enjoying it. Wilson, who is backing up Matt Flynn during the preseason while Jackson watches from the sideline, said on KJR in Seattle that he thinks he’s getting better as a quarterback — and getting closer to being a starting quarterback. [...]
Terrell Owens says he is ''no longer'' a member of the Seattle Seahawks.
The 38-year-old wide receiver posted the news on his Twitter account.
''I'm no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver.''
Owens signed a one-year deal with Seattle earlier...
Braylon Edwards has always been a talented receiver and as such he’s proven himself to be an enigma so far in the NFL.
He’s made huge plays and saw his career jump off to a great start yet after leaving Cleveland he sputtered out in both New York with the Jets and in San Francisco.
Now, it looks like he’s ready to go for his and he appears to be on the verge of his long-awaited...
Seattle's incumbent starter Tarvaris Jackson didn't play in the Seahawks preseason opener last week, and coach Pete Carroll already has said that, once again, Matt Flynn will play the first half of Saturday's contest against the Broncos and rookie Russell Wilson will take over for the second. In the past, Carroll has said he knows what Jackson can do for him, but as CBSSports...
The Raiders signed former UCLA linebacker Korey Bosworth, the nephew of former Seattle Seahawks on Oklahoma linebacker Brian Bosworth. Korey Bosworth signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2010 and spent training camp with the Lions in 2010, '11 and '12. He played in the Lions' preseason opener last week.
And Then There Were Six…
The quarterback competition was the battle to watch going into Seahawks training camp. Or so we thought. We should be so naive to think my boy Pete Carroll didn’t have a trick or two up his sleeve.
The signings of Braylon Edwards and Terrell Owens.
The initial assumption of these signings was that they were desperate moves on Carroll’s part to add...
While Matt Flynn sits in front of him, the wait for Russell Wilson may not be long`
1.) Russell Wilson Quarterback, Seattle Seahawks
“He is too short to be an NFL Quarterback”, “He can’t see over his Offensive Line” these are just some of the things Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson heard from NFL scouts heading into the 2012 NFL Draft. Wilson has all the...
Today there are 13 days left until kickoff.
13 is the record for receiving touchowns in a season. Sidney Rice set the record in 2005. Like the single season rushing TD record, this record was set during a freshman season. Rice redshirted the 2004 season and was excellent in 2005. He had another stellar year in 2006 and moved on to the NFL. He currently plays for the Seattle...
We saw why I had five questions going into the Cardinals game Friday night and I gave you my early questions for the San Francisco 49ers game, but what about the other two NFC West teams?
Let’s take a look at the NFC West Week 2 Preview Part 2 (Pre season) and the five questions I have for week 2 of the pre season.
1) Is there a quarterback controversy?
Seahawks Broncos Storylines
Games against the old division rivals of the AFC West are always a lot of fun, preseason or not.
For the most part, I still harbor hatred for the teams that the Seahawks left behind when they rejoined the NFC for the 2002 season.
Though it has been a decade since the realignment, the lack of competition in the NFC West has left an empty feeling inside...
If you thought Miami, New Orleans, Dallas, and the New York Jets had a lot of drama surrounding their teams coming into the 2012 NFL season, you should take a look at the storms brewing in Seattle.
Only a season removed from stumbling into the playoffs and knocking out the Saints in the first round, high expectations are being placed on a young Seattle team.
Head coach Pete Carroll...
Preseason Preview: Seahawks at Broncos
(Note: Mike and I will both be indisposed for this game, me because of work and him because he forgot to pack a television and a couple miles of coax and extension cord for his camping trip. I’ve got my VCR set to record (yes, VCRs still exist), but the usual after-game notes post will be delayed until I can sit down and watch it. Until...
