Last week: 17 (+0)
As they always do, the Seahawks fell flat on the road last week. Now there are calls for Russell Wilson’s job after his 3 pick performance (none of which were ruled touchdowns strangely) just a few weeks after he was the media darling who “beat the odds.” They’ve got a great defense and they’re great at home, but their offense isn’t very good and they really struggle on the road. I can’t see a team with that description winning much more than 8 or 9 games and making the playoffs in a loaded NFC.
RB Marshawn Lynch: Rushed for 118 yards (68 yards after contact) and a touchdown on 20 carries, 6 broken tackles, allowed 1 quarterback hit and 1 quarterback hurry on 5 pass block snaps, caught 4 passes for 37 yards on 4 attempts
CB Brandon Browner: Did not allow a completion on 2 attempts, no tackles
QB Russell Wilson: 17 of 25 for 160 yards and 3 interceptions, 1 batted pass, 1 drop, 57.1 adjusted QB rating, pressured on 16 of 31 drop backs (2 sacks, 2 scrambl...

AROUND THE WEB
Russell Wilson had a rough go of it in Seattle’s 19-13 Week 4 loss to the Rams, completing 17-of-25 passes for just 160 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions. Wilson was under constant pressure, Wilson was routinely flushed from the pocket, but only one of his three interceptions was his fault. Doug Baldwin let the ball get ripped out of his hands late in the second...
Seahawks still flying Wilson.

Seattle Seahawks fans, a bird on the press wire tells me Seattle is indeed going with Russell Wilson this week at Carolina. I’m sorry Seattle NFL fans don’t have as big a name to throw around in the controversial “who’s...
Despite Seattle's offensive struggles in its first four games, the Seahawks are sticking with
rookie Russell Wilson as their starting quarterback. Coach Pete Carroll told The News Tribune of Tacoma, Wash., that Matt Flynn, the team's big
offseason acquisition, wasn't ready to play because of an elbow injury that has limited him in
practice. But Carroll later backtracked...
Former Seattle Seahawks great Warren Moon believes that head coach Pete Carroll needs to stop having rookie quarterback Russell Wilson play like a robot to limit turnovers.
“He feels that he can do more and handle more than they’re giving him,” Moon told Doug Farrar of Shutdown Corner.
“You’ve got to remember — Pete’s a defensive coach, and he preaches, ‘Turnovers...

Despite the continued struggles of the Seattle Seahawks offense and the worst passing game in the NFL, Pete Carroll is not ready to make a switch from rookie Russell Wilson at quarterback.
Any decision to perhaps go to backup Matt Flynn is also complicated by the Seahawks being unsure whether a sore elbow that limited Flynn at the end of the preseason would be fully able to handle...
Don’t give up now
The Seattle Seahawks have found themselves embroiled in quarterback controversy since last season ended. With the loss of Charlie Whitehurst and the signing of Matt Flynn, things got really interesting in Seattle.
Then draft day rolled around and the Seahawks grabbed another QB – Russell Wilson from Wisconsin.
So began the 3 headed race that never was to be...
The Seahawks’ two game winning streak came to a halt on the road today against NFC west rivals, the St. Louis Rams, with another close score of 19-13.
The Seahawks offense appeared to make a statement today, finally getting a score drive together in the first series of the opening half. Russell Wilson spread the ball around, hooking up with both wide receivers Sydney Rice and Golden...
The better team won
I should re-phrase that, the team that played better on Sunday won. Hats off to the St. Louis Rams for the big divisional win. The Rams coaching staff put together a great game plan that put the team in position to win.
The players executed the plan and that is why they won. On the other side of the field, the Seattle Seahawks entered the Edward Jones Dome...
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made a very Pete Carroll-esque move when he named Russell Wilson his starting quarterback before the season, despite a rocky start, Carroll's sticking with the rookie.
"We're going with Russell right now," Carroll told The News Tribune on Monday. "He's working his tail off to get it right, and where all of the focus...
Silence of the lambs
With everything going right in the Seahawks world going into Sunday’s divisional matchup with St. Louis, the Hawks sure picked a bad time to let their true colors show.
Now the world can really see that the win the previous week was a fluke, and we are the the laughing stock of the NFL community.
Sure, there are worse teams that us, but to ride high with...
Playing to their level
The Seattle Seahawks went into St Louis on Sunday looking to make a name for themselves in the NFC West. After starting off the year with a heartbreaking loss at division rival Arizona, the Seahawks couldn’t afford to lose their second division game of the year.
Leave it to the Seahawks, though, and they’ll surprise you in many ways. After looking stellar...
Replacement Refs, QB Controversy, Inconsistencies
In part one of our four part series, NWSB examined the first four games of the Seattle Seahawks‘ 2012 schedule. Fearlessly, I predicted that the Seahawks would find themselves sitting with a record of 3-1 at this point in the season and, needless to say, I was wrong.
It’s been a frustrating campaign so far — to say the least...
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson struggled against the Rams on the road throwing 3 interceptions. So it was natural that the question would come up about whether the Seahawks might consider turning to their big free-agent acquisition, Matt Flynn.
John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports Seahawks coach Pete Carroll appeared on 710 ESPN Seattle this morning and said that...
