The Penalty Flag:
Russell Wilson is the talk of the town in Seattle these days and as the Seahawks staring Quarterback, he deserves to be. With players such as Wilson, Sidney Rice, Golden Tate, and Marshawn Lynch on offense and Brandon Browner, Bruce Irvin, and Chris Clemons on defense; the Seahawks make plenty of headlines in both the Emerald City and the NFL.
One player easily overlooked, even with the immense media saturation in today’s society has to be the Seahawks place kicker Steven Hauschka. Obscurity may have once been the hallmark of placekickers in the NFL but with names like Janikowski, Vinatieri, Longwell. and Kaeding, the times are changing. Still, children don’t grow up wanting to be the placekicker of their favorite team, fans don’t rush to get the kicker’s jersey, and the Hall of Fame is not filled with the busts of legendary kickers.… Read more

We believe the saying is “act like you’ve been there.”
Richard Sherman had a lot to say after the Seahawks 24-23 win over the New England Patriots, and we have this to say: enjoy your Super Bowl party in October! Here in New England, success is measured in January.
We understand how an excitable young player who watched Brady in the eighth grade would talk some trash after...

Before the season began this looked like it may be a Thursday night match-up that would go fairly unnoticed. Now, almost to the half-way point of the season, this contest between both 4-2 squads looks like it will have major implications. Implications that go beyond who wins the division and who goes to the playoffs. Rather, a match-up that may determine who the next dominant...
The Seattle Seahawks will be without two players for their Thursday
night matchup with the San Francisco 49ers; offensive lineman John Moffit
(knee), and reserve defensive back Byron Maxwell (hamstring). However, Seattle
has announced that safety Kam Chancellor will play despite being limited this
week by an ankle injury, reports the Associated Press.
While he and his team might be playing the 49ers in a nationally televised game on Thursday night, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman already has achieved a fair level of notoriety on the interwebs this week after he tweeted a photo of himself appearing to taunt Patriots quarterback Tom Brady following Seattle’s impressive 24-23 victory over New [...]
Richard Sherman says he has no regrets over the strong comments and messages from his Twitter account following the Seattle Seahawks' victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday.
The Seahawks cornerback said Tuesday that he was directed to remove a picture from his Twitter account that showed Sherman talking to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady after Seattle's 24-23 win...
One of the best match-ups of the week on Thursday night. How nice to put that at a time when players only have three days rest.
I’ve said elsewhere that it was the rampant Peter King fluffing that turned me against Russell Wilson. I know that’s not really a fair thing to hold against someone. Wilson is just being himself. If he happens to charm some reporters who skew their coverage...
Patrick Willis had no chance last December to do his part in stopping Marshawn Lynch and helping keep San Francisco's impressive streak alive: 36 straight games without allowing a 100-yard rusher.

This has a knack for being a defensive slugfest that everybody should enjoy!
Both defenses are fearless and talk a bunch of game, although they back it up with the best of them.
Seattle and San Francisco are second and third respectively, but they are fourth and first in points allowed per game...
Richard Sherman says he has no regrets over the strong comments
and messages from his Twitter account following the Seattle
Seahawks' victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday.
The line went viral following Seattles stunning comeback against New England on Sunday. “U Mad Bro?”Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had words for Tom Brady following the game. Brady was asked about the incident and responded according to NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal.“(Sherman’s) a very good player, and I have a lot of respect for that defense and certainly that secondary...
The Thursday Night games have been pretty boring this year, with few reasons to watch other than fantasy and gambling implications. This week might be the exception, as the Seahawks travel to face the 49ers.
Every week I'm profiling one sparsely-owned player from Thursday's game that you can (notice I'm not saying should) pick up and start. Ya know, get your...
LAST WEEK: 6-8
SEASON: 55-36 (60%)
The Seahawks are coming off a huge win against the Pats and the 49ers are coming off a really rough loss to the Giants, but San Francisco's defense is just too good to lose to Russell Wilson no matter how good the Seattle defense plays.
Both of these teams were big underdogs in their...
