Our man on the Seattle Seahawks beat Brandon Choate weighs in on this week's battle versus the Philadelphia Eagles. This game between 4-7 teams should have way more implications than it does today, but the Seahawks can still find games like this to make a statement for next year. With Tarvaris Jackson injured and Sidney Rice out, Marshawn Lynch and receivers Doug Baldwin and Ben Obomanu will need to step up and play huge.

Tarvaris Jackson's passing yardage has declined in each of the past four games, and his health will be a central issue in this shortened week as the Seahawks play the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday.
I don’t have much to add in terms of commentary that I didn’t have in yesterday’s post-game recap. This was a great win by the Seahawks, so expect a lot of high grades to be given out this week.Tarvaris Jackson: A-Jackson did exactly what the Seahawks needed him to do, and that is manage the game. He only had 16 attempts, but turned that into 190 yards. He also didn’t have...
The Seattle Seahawks at 4-7 are on their 4th offensive coordinator in 4 years...but the hiring of Darrell Bevell marked the return of the Seahawks to Mike Holmgren's version of the West Coast offense. That means a passing game with fewer deep throws, more timing routes and an emphasis on throwing to running backs. The biggest change, however, has been the hiring of Tom Cable...
On a short week, Keith Myers of 12thManRising.com was nice enough to answer us a series of questions about the upcoming Eagles and Seahawks match-up.
The Seahawks have had some recent success so I start by asking what this can be attributed to. I also get his thoughts on both Tarvaris Jackson as well as his opinion on the Eagles both before the season started and now.
The Broncos bring up several bad memories, especially for a number of ex-Vikings, both players and coaches. From Tarvaris Jackson to Troy Williamson, there have been plenty of careers that started to unwind with a matchup against Denver.
Q weighs in with his Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks keys to the game. QB Tarvaris Jackson isn't lighting up the scoreboard, having averaged just 182.5 yards in his last four contests. LeSean McCoy, who is the league's leading rusher with 1,050 yards, received just 10 carries last weekend. DeSean Jackson will start. Marshawn Lynch has to have a HUGE game.
The Seattle Seahawks improved their record to 5-7 after an impressive 31-14 win over the Eagles on Thursday Night.
Seattles star of the game was Running Back Marshawn Lynch who ran all over the Philly Defense for 148 yards and two TDs. Lynch has now scored in each of his last eight games. Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson completed 13 of 16 passes for 190 yards and one TD...

State of the Seattle Seahawks. Brett B our man with his pulse on the Seahawks football beat is back with another edition of the Notebook. The November 30th, 2011 edition. This week the Seahawks face NFC East Philadelphia Eagles. Pete Carroll, Tarvaris Jackson, Doug Baldwin, Mike Williams, and Marshawn Lynch face off against Andy Reid, Vince Young and DeSean Jackson.
Three keys to Seahawks victory 1. Get caught up in the holiday rush.One way to mute Philadelphia's explosive offense is to play keepaway, which is a page right out of Seattle's recent blueprint of giving the ball to Marshawn Lynch early and often. He has rushed for more than 100 yards in three of the team's last four games. The Eagles defense allowed three players to...
