The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 10 (+1)
Remember two weeks ago when everyone thought the sky was falling for them when they were 4-4 after losing to Detroit. And two weeks before that everyone thought they were great when they were 4-2 and coming off a win against New England. Well, now they’re 6-4 and everyone thinks they’re great following a blowout win over the Jets. What happened? They went home. This team, as always, is much better at home than on the road, going 5-0 at home with 3 upset wins and 1-4 on the road with 2 upset losses.
Now they go on the road to Miami and Chicago and could be 6-6 at the end of that and everyone will think the sky is falling for them again before they finish up by winning their last 4, beating Arizona, St. Louis, and San Francisco (in upset fashion) at home and taking care of business on the road against crappy Buffalo. 10 wins should get you a playoff spot in the NFC. The Seahawks already have the tiebreaker over the Packers. If they can win their last 3 h...

We wrote earlier today about Green Bay Packers CB Tramon Williams taking it upon himself to take ownership of the name "Optimus Prime" after Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman already used it a few weeks ago. Williams told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "I'm definitely Optimus Prime," adding that "guys like Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman, they...
Pete Carroll knows a little about the media pouncing on their prey. He took every attack the Boston media threw at him while he was head coach of the New England Patriots.
After his dismissal from New England, he went back to sunny Southern California and built a powerhouse USC program that turned him into an icon in those parts. Carroll also knows young quarterbacks and Mark Sanchez...
Seahawks: By the Bye
The Seahawks have some clockwork to do this week. Below is featured each bye week from the first bye week in Week 4, through (yet to be elapsed) Week 11 and their outcomes. I was interested in seeing how the league, in general, has fared after a bye week. Of course, it stands to reason that superb teams should win after a bye. With one exception, the Chargers’...
Seahawks: Week 10 Off/Def/Spec. teams: “nutshell pictorial”…but first a consumer experience.
Mind you, my good friends, I am taking my leisure with this pictorial and a sniff of Glenmorangie 12. The benefit with a simple straIGHTFORWARD PICTORIAL, HERE IS THAT I’LL LESS LIKELY MISSPELL the text of my composition. I take this liberty on this rare occasion when I don’t have...
Two in a row baby!
Yes that’s right, your Seattle Seahawks have won two games in a row, and now take that momentum heading into their bye week.
Up next for the Seahawks is a show down in Miami against the Dolphins against another ex Pete Carroll star, Reggie Bush.
With 6 games remaining, the Hawks look to be in a great spot, and should be able to get into the post season barring...
Seahawks CB Richard Sherman was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 10.

The Seattle Seahawks hosted the New York Jets Sunday in what was considered a must-win game for both teams. While there is great parity between the two teams’ records, a lot was on the line for both. Seattle is fighting for a playoff spot while the Jets are fighting themselves and the media circus they’ve created.
With that playoff spot in mind, Seattle players seem...
Seahawks win it in second half
Seattle Seahawks 28, New York Jets 7
When: 1:05 PST, Sunday, November 11, 2012
Where: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington
What started out as an awful first half of football by both teams, lead to a second half of football that was the most complete half of the 2012 season for the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks showed that they are mean, they are...
I know I just talked about how much I love The Real Rob Report, but this voting edition is so hilarious. In this video, we find out which Seattle Seahawks voted, who they voted for, why some didn’t vote, and who they would have voted for if they would have voted…which they didn’t.
Also, Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman (briefly) comment on current coverage rules vs. the...
(Note: Since I was redoing my spreadsheets anyway, I went ahead and revamped the tables I've been using for the stats articles as well. That part took a heck of a lot longer than I thought it would, but such is life.)
Entering their bye week, the Seahawks’ record stands at 6-4 with six games left to play in the season. Last year, the team was 4-6 after ten games, and...

Don’t talk about playoffs. Actually, let’s talk about the playoffs. We could get all hung up on tie-breaker scenarios and the what-ifs, but if the Seahawks can get to 10-6 they should be in the...
