Found December 19, 2012 on Checkdown Chatter:
The Seattle Seahawks have made the biggest jump on our power rankings this week rising from 13 to 7 and it isn’t hard to see why. Their 108 points over the past two weeks are about the biggest statement a team can make at this time of the season and it comes as they are in the heat of a playoff race for both the NFC wildcard and the division crown. Depending on their seeding Seattle will have to win three on the road to make it to the Super Bowl but I wouldn't count them out against anyone at this point. That statement is more than I can say for the other two playoff contenders led by first year quarterbacks – while Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck and their respective teams should be commended for the seasons they have put together its the team playing behind QB Russell Wilson, a third round draft afterthought, that is December/January’s most intimidating matchup...

Why Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson should be Rookie of the Year

They told him he couldn’t play QB  in the NFL, after all he was too short to look over his offensive lineman. When Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson declared for the draft it didn’t matter what his film showed, he was often cast aside by scouts and front offices because of his size. It would be generous to call Russell Wilson 5″11, yet he comes out and proves every week and...

We all knew that one of the many bungled calls made by those replacement refs, who simultaneously entertained and enraged us the first three weeks of the 2012 season, would come back to haunt us.

Seahawks MMQB: Trap averted vs. Bills in Toronto

Seahawks come out swinging Earlier in the week I wrote a piece about why the upcoming game against the Buffalo Bills concerned me.  The Seahawks wasted no time relieving me of my concerns as they scored on their first 5 possession, before finally punting the ball on their 6th.  By that time the Seahawks offense had already scored 31-points. In-fact, the Seahawks became just the...

Vote: Should Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson Win NFL Rookie of the Year Award?

It was clear long before last April that the 2012 NFL Draft was going to center around two players. Those two players — quarterbacks, of course — were Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. Both players were expected to be franchise-changing talents. Luck was the consensus choice for No. 1, but holding the second pick wasn’t expected to be too shabby, either, with Griffin waiting...

NFL Rumors: Buffalo Bills Sick Of Playing Home Games In Canada?

The Buffalo Bills continue to make their annual pilgrimage to the Great White North to play at least one official home game in Toronto, Canada per NFL season, but that does not mean that all of the players are on board.

Red-Hot Seahawks Hang 50 On Bills: 5 Things We Learned
