Kissing Suzy Kolber:
While the scab refs’ Fail Mary ruling in Week 3 will be better remembered, it won’t end up being the only bad call that helped the Seahawks to a win in 2012. The Chicago Tribune learned that the NFL admitted to the Bears after their 23-17 overtime loss to Seattle in Week 13 that game officials had erred by not calling two offensive pass interference penalties committed by Seahawks receivers. Both uncalled penalties occurred on drives that resulted in Seattle touchdowns, including the winning score in overtime.
The first came on third-and-6 from the Seahawks 47 with 3 minutes, 10 seconds left in the first half. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a deep sideline pass to wide receiver Golden Tate. Tate subtly shoved Jennings to the ground with his right hand near the Bears 30 and came down with what he turned into a 49-yard reception. The Seahawks scored a touchdown on the next play from the 4.
The disputed no-call against Tillman came in overtime. With the Seahawks facing a cri...

Seattle Seahawks OT Russell Okung has certainly come into his own this season, earning him a starting spot for the NFC in this year's Pro Bowl.
"This is a chance to see him grow and develop through the whole thing," offensive coordinator Tom Cable told Danny O'Neil on the Seattle Times. "Then to stay healthy, you have to do that. His progression has been...
Okung’s his own man
It is nearly impossible for a player to follow a legend.
That is exactly what Pete Carroll and John Schneider asked Russell Okung to do when they selected him with the 6th overall pick in 2010, their first draft.
Chances are, if you’re still reading this, you know the legend that I am referring too, Walter Jones.
In my opinion, #71 Walter Jones is several...
Richard Sherman has won his appeal of a four-game PED suspension. Sherman, originally suspended for Adderall, cited flaws with the collection of his specimen.
Sherman said that his urine was contaminated because the cup used to collect it was leaking. The collector then used a second cup.
Teammate Brandon Browner also tested positive for Adderall and will serve the final game of...
East Coast Bias
The Pro Bowl rosters are out—and flawed. Even though the Seattle Seahawks are indisputably the NFL’s hottest team, and just torched the “best defense” in the league for 42 points, we have the same number of pro bowlers as…..the Kansas City Chiefs.
The football world thinks we have the same amount of elite players as a team with more pro...
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has said that he has won his appeal against the NFL for a four game suspension for violating the league’s performance enhancing drug policy.
Sherman tweeted the following just after noon on Thursday.
“Thank you @nfl for upholding the truth! To the 12s Thank you your faith is rewarded! Thank you lord. I won.”
News first broke of...
Seahawks CB Richard Sherman tweeted on Thursday that he has won his appeal for the four-game suspension that was handed down by the NFL for a failed test that showed traces of Adderall.
Sherman made the case that his urine specimen was contaminated because it was leaking from the container and the NFL must have felt that this was an adequate argument to drop his suspension...
Christmas week just keeps getting better for the Seattle Seahawks. Today, cornerback Richard Sherman announced he’d won his appeal of a four-game suspension related to performance enhancing drugs that would have kept him out of Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams, and, more importantly, the entire NFC playoffs. The league hadn’t yet announced the results before Sherman...
The Seattle Seahawks look to extend their winning streak to five games this week as the St. Louis Rams come to town. The Seahawks are arguably the best team in the league right now and are riding on a promising wave of momentum; in the last three games, they’ve outscored their opponents 150-30. Seattle has to win this Sunday to have any chance of winning the NFC West.
The loud mouth playmaker will play for the Seahawks into the playoffs.
Here’s hoping all of you are having a great time over the holidays -- I’ve spent most of this week pinballing from one family gathering to the next. Really though, with the Seahawks playing as well as they are right now, someone could drop a Buick on my leg and I’d still think this was a pretty awesome week (well, after I stopped screaming in pain long enough to think...
After spending yesterday passive aggressively complaining on Twitter about being snubbed from the Pro Bowl, Richard Sherman finally has something to hang his hat on. He has officially won his appeal against the NFL’s claim of his use of performance enhancing drugs. Does anyone else think it’s strange he refers to Roger Goodell as “lord”?
Not to be pessimists, but we were...
Uno Mas in the Traffic Jam that is the NFC West Playoff Picture
Last Sunday night, the Seattle Seahawks gave their fan base an early Christmas gift with the complete dismemberment of the San Francisco 49ers.
The 42-13 annihilation was—once again—a complete effort from each side of the ball.
Russell Wilson again shined, adding four scores for the second week in a row. The defense...
