The Seattle Seahawks have the NFL’s number one defense. The New England Patriots have the NFL’s number one offense. The Seahawks are undefeated in two home games. The Patriots have won all but one of their three road games and the one loss was by a last second field goal that might not have gone through the uprights. The Patriots are rushing for 4.3 yards a carry. The Seahawks are allowing 3.2 yards per run play. The Seahawks are allowing 192 passing yards per game. The Patriots are throwing for 274 yards a game on average. The Seahawks defense hasn’t allowed a touchdown in the last two games. The Patriots’ offense has scored ten touchdowns over the same stretch. Basically what I’m trying to say is: the Seahawks’ defense is really, really good but the Patriots’ offense is also really, really good. This week will be a great test to see if this Seahawks defense, a defense that has been called the best Seattle has ever had, is for real. The Seahawks will need to limit Tom Brady and the...

NFC power rankings as of week 5, Part I

Focusing on the two teams rounding out the bottom of the NFC west power rankings, it becomes aware that one is at a make it or break stage of the season, and the other is strong enough to lead the division. Where their destinies take them is uncertain yet, but it’s certainly a crossroads week for them. With season altering injuries and brutally tough schedules ahead, it’s anyone’s...

Pete Carroll on facing his former team: “I didn’t leave it the way I wanted to”

The Pete Carroll era in New England ended like the way it began, with Pete Carroll smiling. Carroll circled the stadium and waved goodbye. It was the silliest display of misplaced affection. Carroll had endured a treacherous Boston Media that portrayed him as a happy fool. All that have witnessed Carroll at USC, or in Seattle, never had the experience of his Patriot days. Carroll...

Miller back to being a receiving threat

Zach Miller is getting re-adjusted to what it's like to be an eligible pass catcher again after a year spent being a de facto offensive lineman. The former Pro Bowler had his least productive receiving year of his career after joining the Seattle Seahawks last season. Miller caught just 25 passes for the season and failed to find the end zone for the first time in his five-year...

Browner continuing growth with Seattle

A year after making the transition from Canadian Football League player to Pro Bowl cornerback, Brandon Browner is continuing to prove his value to the Seattle Seahawks. Browner came up with two key plays to help the Seahawks earn their first road win of the season, a 16-12 victory over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday, including a strip and fumble recovery that helped shift the...

Terrell Owens on the Jets, Tebow, Sanchez and Romo

It’s on the record that Players View feels that Terrell Owens can still play. There is also the feeling that he creates these weird stumbling blocks for himself that for instance kept him from making the grade in Seattle. In looking at the film that he generated as a Seahawk he had no problem getting open which is why he was targeted so much. He just dropped crucial catches.When...

The Seattle Seahawks can do what the Giants defense does

Here's one of the more interesting story lines for this game. I've already said that this Seattle game will be the biggest test for this Patriots offense. It's the best measuring stick we'll have for if this offense is really balanced or not. I can't wait to see how the Patriots can handle this Seahawks defense in a hostile environment. It's not only because...

Seahawks' No. 1 defense eager to face Pats' No. 1 offense

"Let's go." Those were the words Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley emphasized in discussing his No. 1-ranked defensive unit taking on the No. 1-ranked offense when the New England Patriots travel west to face his team on Sunday. Bradley knows that the Patriots have good players and a good scheme on offense, led by one of the best quarterbacks in...

According to John Boiyle of the Everett Herald, the Seattle Seahawks plan on retiring former offensive lineman Cortez Kennedy’s number 96 at half time of this Sunday’s game against the Patriots.Kennedy played his entire 10-year career for the Seahawks after being drafted 3rd overall in the 1990 NFL draft.

Terrell Owens Just Doesn’t Get It, His NFL Career Is Over Why Would The Jets Take Him?

If Terrell Owens were smart which we all know he is not, he would hang up his football cleats and call it a career. The Jets lining up a corner back at wide receiver isn’t desperate. Remember the guy in Dallas that played both ways? I think his name was Deion Sanders. I don’t care if Ownes took to twitter, sent a telegram, hand a note handed to Rex Ryan or what the case is. The...

Interview with SeahawkAddict Scott

I had a chance to interview Scott Robb (Twitter: @RealScottRobb), a content writer at SeahawkAddicts (the Seahawks blog on Bloguin).   Raj Vaidya: You were at the game against Carolina last week. While you did enjoy the win, what did you learn from the game and who impressed/disappointed you?                Scott Robb: I was most impressed with the way the...

New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks: Three Bold Predictions

Bold Prediction No. 1:New England quarterback Tom Brady has spoken with his dermatologist and was advised by Dr. Maakpretti that the cool, moist Seattle air is good for his dry skin. Therefore, Tom Terrific will not be wearing make-up during the game, but he will find Welker, Hernandez and "Gronk" in the end-zone - three passing TD's against a very strong Seattle pass...

Terrell Owens is calling the Jets desperate

Terrell Owens wants a job. He wants back in the NFL, and is constantly reminding teams of his physical ability. This past Monday night, he sent out a Tweet to the New York Jets that he was still available if they want him. They don’t want him, though Rex Ryan did say “never say never.” [...]
