Three things we learned
There's a fine line between headstrong and foolhardy.Seattle's starting cornerbacks are trying to ride a bike right down the middle of that fine line, which leaves them vulnerable of veering off on either side. The Seahawks were penalized nine times for Monday's game. Five were against the starting cornerbacks, including four against Richard Sherman, who must find a way to avoid penalties while retaining that physical and aggressive style. The easiest starting point? When you make a play on a guy in the end zone on third down, don't stand over him and woof at him until the official feels obligated to throw a flag for taunting. That's what we call an "avoidable penalty."
Doug Baldwin might just have an 'S' on that chest.Not only has he caught 45 passes -- which is third-most among all rookies -- but in the first 5 minutes of Monday's game he a) returned the opening kickoff 37 yards on a reverse handoff from Leon Washi...

Marshawn's mom, look what you started. In the early days of Marshawn Lynch's career, she would give him Skittles for every touchdown. Cameras caught him indulging in this sweet treat after he scored a touchdown against the Eagles, and a phenomenon was born.
At Monday night's win over the Rams, fans who packed CenturyLink Field held up signs with Skittles bags glued to...
Baldwin made three key special-teams plays, caught a touchdown pass and led the Seahawks in receiving with seven catches for 93 yards.
After a week of basketball, I can already tell you that this division is up for grabs. No. 1 Seattle Prep, on paper was considered the team that would run away with the division, but they lost their home opener against Rainier Beach last Tuesday. There were a couple more upsets in this division: Eastside knocking off Lakeside and West Seattle beating Bainbridge. This just shows how...
Last night, the Seattle Seahawks defeated the St. Louis Rams on Monday Night Football and Marshawn Lynch had another big rushing day.
After his fourth quarter touchdown run, some fans pelted him with Skittles:

Seahawks vs. Rams Postgame ObservationsFinal Score: Seattle 30, St. Louis 13
The Rams are terrible
There’s no getting around this fact in the Seahawks’ 30-13 drubbing of the Rams on Monday Night Football. Actually, they might be the worst team in the NFL right now with the amount of injuries they’ve stacked up. They have no capable receivers aside from Brandon Loyd...
It was ugly, especially when the offense decided to spend the first half playing down to the level of the competition, but a win is a win. Also, the offensive line still makes me nervous, but McQuistan held up better at left tackle than I thought he would, and Giacomini bounced back after getting beaten multiple times early on (mostly by bull rushes).
But enough out of me, what...

It is not -- however -- realistic nor is it feasible. Not with Atlanta owning a head-to-head tiebreaker against Seattle by virtue of the Week...
Undrafted rookie Doug Baldwin blocked a first-quarter punt that was returned by Michael Robinson 17 yards for a touchdown, then caught a 29-yard TD pass from Tarvaris Jackson in the third quarter as the Seattle Seahawks pulled away for a 30-13 win.
Doug Baldwin picked a national stage to remind the rest of the NFL what they passed up in last April's draft. Baldwin, an undrafted rookie out of Stanford, blocked a first-quarter punt that was returned by Michael Robinson 17 yards for a touchdown, then caught a 29-yard TD pass from Tarvaris Jackson in the third quarter as the Seattle Seahawks pulled away for a 30-13 win over the staggering...
