This week, a lot of folks seem to be making a point of having Grave Concerns about the performance of the offensive line. More specifically, they want to know why the o-line failed so very hard and broke our hearts and ruined our season and we should just toss the entire line in the trash and buy some better players from that nice offensive lineman store down the block (‘cause it’s just that easy), woe is us, etc.
My maudlin exaggeration aside, I think there’s something very important getting lost in all this: the Cardinals were playing in that game, too. Really, I’m reminded here of something Jon Madden used to do as an announcer. With him, it was never “the Seahawks won that game,” it was always “the Raiders/Chargers/etc. lost that game,” as though the other team went out there unopposed and somehow managed to lose to the goalposts or the refs or something.
Listening to Madden do that to the Seahawks never failed to drive me up a wall, and I’m not about to turn around and do...

According to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN in Seattle, Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate will start on Sunday in place of Braylon Edwards.

HEAD ON A SWIVEL
There is no doubt football is a violent game but this hit on Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee by Golden Tate was vicious.
Tate even celebrated after the hit, crawling to the ground and then pointing to his name on the jersey.
Not sure it was right to celebrate a hit where the player didn’t even know it was coming? Then again, Tate is a wide receiver.
Lee would be taken off...
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch carried the ball 26 times for 122 yards and a touchdown Sunday against Dallas.Fantasy Spin:Lynch will likely be limited in practice during the week so he doesn't re-trigger his back spasms but when he's active on Sundays the running back is going to get 20-plus carries.
Marshawn Lynch ran for 122 yards and a 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, Seattle's special teams came up with two huge first-quarter plays that led to 10 points, and the Seahawks beat the Dallas Cowboys 27-7 on Sunday.
Michael Robinson forced Felix Jones to fumble on the opening kickoff that led to a short field goal, and Malcolm Smith blocked Chris Jones' punt which...
The Seattle Seahawks have not had good luck against the Dallas Cowboys ever since the famed Wild Card game with the fumble heard ’round the world between the two teams. Since that game, Seattle has had to travel to Dallas for each matchup.
This time…Dallas comes back to Seattle where Tony Romo is probably still having nightmares about.
After last week’s loss...
SEATTLE -- Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate pivoted, launched and sent Dallas linebacker Sean Lee into the air, then onto his back with a clean, explosive hit. The block sprung quarterback Russell Wilson for a scrambling first down. More important, it encapsulated the Seahawks’ bullying ways Sunday in a 27-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys (1-1) in Seattle’s home opener in CenturyLink...
I know many people believe that the Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate should be fined for lighting up Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee during yesterday’s game. But I’ll break down why the hit is clean in my opinion.
Lee was not a defenseless player. Tate hit him straight on and not on the side.
Lee failed to guard himself and keep his head on a swivel.
Tate didn’t lead with...
The possible highight of the day goes to Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate for this decleating of Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee during Seattle's 8-play, 90-yard drive that ended in a touchdown, and pretty much sealed the victory for teh Seahawks.
As QB Russell Wilson scrambled for a first down, he gets some help from Tate, who absolutely crushes a unsuspecting Sean Lee. No flags...
SEATTLE -- Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks took control of the clock and the scoreboard in the second half, shutting down Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys.
The 27-7 loss to Seattle wasn’t Romo’s fault, but he will still bear plenty of weight.
Jerry Jones didn’t have a great weekend. His Arkansas Razorbacks were worse than some Division 1-AA (or whatever they’re called now) schools in a 52-0 loss to Alabama on Saturday.
On Sunday, former Razorback Felix Jones returned the opening kickoff for the Dallas Cowboys against the Seattle...
