Oh Pete Carroll, you ol' horn dog.Last week, due to the NHL lockout, the league canceled its best regular season event of the season, as it pulled the plug on the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, which would have been played in freezing temperatures in front of 100,000 people at the University of Michigan. That should have been one of the coolest – literally and figuratively – sporting events of our lifetimes, and instead it’s just a memory rattling around like a BB in the tin can that is Gary Bettman’s head.Today at 3:30 PM ET, the owners and players union will resume talks, and people seem to be buzzing about the possibility of the NHL saving half of its season, much like the NBA did last year. But for a reminder, let’s turn to TIME’s Keeping Score for a recap of what it will take to get these guys back on the ice.Following the path created by the National Football League, where the owners now get 53% of revenues, the NHL owners have been relentlessly trying to increase their s...

3 Reasons the Seahawks should pursue Payton

Three seasons into his five-year contract Pete Carroll is not living up to expectations. While many fans might be quick to point out he has won a playoff game against the then defending Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints, the reality was it was done with a losing record and not a realistic marker of success. Carroll can argue he is building a team and that takes time, an argument...

The Seahawks' Coverage Problems versus the Lions

[Note: This article was supposed to go up late last week, but due to other concerns it had to go unfinished until now.  But while the subject matter is a bit past tense, if nothing else I figured it’d serve as a nice frame of reference when I take a look at the game tape for the Vikings game.] The Seahawks’ pass coverage against the Lions was ugly, and looking at it on...

Charly Martin Released

Earlier today, the Seahawks released wide receiver Charly Martin.  It's presumed that the move was made in order to make room for cornerback Walter Thurmond, but Thurmond still hasn't been officially activated off of the physically unable to play list.
