New York Jets
Today's game against the Jets is an important one to win for the Seahawks. The Hawks have won several games already that everyone expected them to lose, only to turn right around and lose games they should've won handily. The passing game has improved significantly and RB Marshawn Lynch is still Marshawn Lynch, but the defense has had some trouble in its last few outings defending runs up the gut and with their coverage in the underneath middle zones.
Injury-wise, Seattle looks like a team in sore need of a bye week. LB K.J. Wright and LG James Carpenter have been ruled out again this week with concussion symptoms, DE Greg Scruggs is doubtful, DT Clinton McDonald is questionable, and there's a whole laundry list of key players who are just banged up enough to be listed as probable, including Lynch, DE Red Bryant, WR Doug Baldwin, SS Kam Chancellor, C Max Unger, and CB Richard Sherman.
The Jets are not a good team this year. Their starting quarterback, Mark S...

I started this after the “Canada Day” Seattle Seahawks game but never got around to finishing it, all I managed to accomplish was the title. The reason why I chose Jon Ryan to be the subject of this piece was two fold.
First, he’s Canadian so he seemed to be the perfect subject following Canada Day at CenturyLink and second, he became this first punter...
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has one supporter in the locker room, cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who says Sanchez is the Jets only quarterback.
“They can kiss my butt, Mark is our quarterback. At the end of the day, we could give a damn what anybody on the outside has to say." Cromartie said to the New York Post following the Jets 28-7 loss to Seattle. "Mark...
The New Yorks Jets highly regarded special teams coach Mike Westhoff couldn't believe what he was seeing from his unit two weeks ago against the Miami Dolphins. A punt blocked for a touchdown, a blocked a field goal, an onside kick recovered by Miami, and a slew of good returns. When asked about the special teams unit having bad games like that, "You can never sugarcoat...
Russell Wilson threw touchdowns of 38 yards to Golden Tate and 31 yards to Sidney Rice, and the Seattle Seahawks sent the New York Jets to their worst start since 2007 with a 28-7 win on Sunday.
Wilson was harried for much of the day by the multiple looks from the Jets' defense. But the Seattle rookie responded with key throws, hitting Tate on the opening drive, then connecting...
The debate still rages. No not the one for the White House, that one actually had a date where a decision was made. The New York Jets continue the saga of the quarterback position on a weekly basis. Now 3-6 the Jets season is in complete shambles yet players and coaches still rally around Mark Sanchez as the teams quarterback.
Antonio Cromartie was the latest to lash out at those...
A tired-looking Rex Ryan returned from Seattle after what he described as a long night following the Jets 28-7 loss to the Seahawks Sunday. But even in his fatigue, Ryan stressed essentially what he had last night: the quarterback situation, and the wildcat situation, will not change as a result of the demoralizing loss in Seattle.
Asked if it is time to give up on the wildcat...
The Seattle Seahawks (6-4) beat the New York Jets (3-6) 28-7, this past Sunday at CentruyLink Field from Seattle, WA.
As soon as the Jets told media before this game saying they were going to make the playoffs, but that likely won't happen now as they got crushed by Seattle.
It's time for Rex Ryan to pull Mark Sanchez from the starting QB position, although it is unlikely...
The New York Jets' 28-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday illustrated all the problems that have sent this team disappearing into the darkness.
As always, the focus is on Mark Sanchez, who was dreadful again. On his 26th birthday, the fourth-year quarterback completed just nine of 22 passes for 124 yards. It's the fourth time in nine games Sanchez has thrown for less...
The New York Jets posted on the team website that the club has donated a half million dollars to the relief fund for Hurricane Sandy.
The charitable donation will be divided among three organizations - The Mayor's Fund for NYC Hurricane Relief, the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, and the Nassau and Suffolk County branches of the Salvation Army.
Our hearts go out...
Oi vey… my first column that has to do with the circus that is the J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS! The (3-5) Jets head west to take on the 12th Man and the (5-4) Seattle Seahawks.
Cornerback Antonio Cromartie went on air this week guaranteeing that the Jets will make the playoffs. Although the AFC is the weaker of the 2 conferences, and I do see a 9-7 team making the playoffs, the...
Seattle Times Seahawks reporter, Danny O'Neil tweeted out an interesting quote attributed to WR Sidney Rice in response to Golden Tate's TD pass to Rice:
"His throwing motion was the worst. I thought we traded for Tebow for a second."
Interesting given the fact the Seahawks played against Tebow and the struggling Jets today and quite funny in my opinion if true.
The Jets left struggling pass rusher Aaron Maybin inactive for today's game and replaced him on the game day roster with linebacker Ricky Sapp. Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine hinted toward the move on Thursday when he said the recently-promoted Sapp had essentially the same role as Maybin.
On the plus side for the Jets linebacking corps, Bart Scott (toe) will be active...
N.Y.

QB Mark Sanchez hasn't lost his job yet, but he continues to make poor decisions with the ball and Tim...
The Seahawks easily defeated the Jets 28-7 yesterday and Rex Ryan must be envious of how Seattle wins games. The Hawks are using a strong running game, defense and timely passing to be in the hunt for a playoff spot. This is the same formula the Jets used in 2009 and 2010 to reach the AFC Championship game. However, things have gone awry for New York thanks to very...
