When Russell Wilson takes to the field tonight at Lambeau Field, in Green Bay, Wisconsin, he will face his toughest test of the preseason. The Packers defense is going to try to shut down Wilson and his high-powered Seattle offense. The guy couldn’t be stopped in his first two preseason games, and I don’t think the Packers realize just how good this Seahawks team is coming into the 2013 season. Wilson isn’t very high on the list as far as the passing game, he is ranked 46th so far this preseason. The Seahawks have had a solid rushing game thus far in the preseason and when you have a guy like Christine Michael running the ball for you, there isn’t a reason to pass on everydown. Michael is ranked at number 10 in rushing this preseason. The Seahawks might force the packers to try and stop the run. Then I can see Wilson throwing some play-action passes to mix things up a bit. If the Green Bay secondary is covering well, Russell might just take off and run the football up the field on a few plays. The Seahawks have another guy that is carrying the ball well this preseason too. Spencer Ware is ranked at 13th in rushing. Then there is Stephen Williams, he is ranked in the 6th spot in receiving this preseason. The Packers are going to have their hands full trying to stop Seattle from getting to 3-0 on the preseason. Frankly, I can’t see them stopping the Seahawks tonight. Tell us what you think, leave your comments below….

When you hear the name Christine you automatically think of a female, but believe me Christine Michael is far from a girl. A native of Beaumont, Texas, Michael attended West Brook Senior High School in Beaumont, and played high school football for the West Brook Bruins. He rushed for 3,927 yards on 501 carries. His […]
Russell Wilson had a rough time of it against the Green Bay Packers. It wasn’t the typical Wilson performance and for Seahawks fans, at least he got it out of the way before the regular season gets started. Wilson was under pressure and he threw 2 interceptions in the game. He was also sacked 3 times and it was clear the the Packers were focused in on stopping Wilson from having...
Seahawks running back Christine Michael certainly hasn’t let anyone down this preseason.
Michael put together another good game on Friday night by racking up 97 yards on 11 carries and a touchdown.
Michael is up to 27 preseason carries for 186 yards (6.89 YPC) with the one catch. The second-round pick needs to clean up his pass pro, but there is no question he’s a more skilled...

MAYBE HATE A LITTLE
We all know what happened when the Seattle Seahawks controversially “beat” the Green Bay Packers at home in week three last season, but who knows how things will play out when the Packers host the Seahawks in tonight’s preseason game? I’m sure the reception won’t be too warm for Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate, who made the controversial simultaneous catch to beat...

There is nothing but good vibes in Seattle as the Seahawks undergo training camp off of a playoff season. Stemming from head coach Pete Carroll, the team is buying into some unconventional practices that could have the league turning heads, but just as quickly jumping on the bandwagon. Looks like they are having some fun too, making this year’s training camp seem more like...
It has been a long, strange road for Seattle Seahaks quarterback Brady Quinn, but if Friday night's performance is any indication he might finally be coming into his own as an NFL player.
Quinn was 5-8 against the Packers for 89 yards and a touchdown (and a beauty of a TD pass at that). After not getting much of a look in the second preseason game...
Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jordan Hill has suffered a
partially torn biceps, an injury that will sideline him for three to six weeks,
according to Jason Bristol of CBS 21.
The Seahawks initially believed Hill’s injury was much more
serious and would result in a longer absence. However, an MRI taken recently
didn’t reveal a complete tear of Hill’s biceps muscle, but...
Another nice showing from Seahawks rookie backup running back Christine Michael. He rushed 11 times for 97 yards against Green Bay on Friday night.Fantasy Spin:Unless Marshawn Lynch gets hurt or has more legal issues, Michael shouldn't have much fantasy value this season, but keeper league owners should keep an eye on him as he looks like a better option/handcuff than Robert...
Seahawks will get their first look at DT Tony McDaniel this Friday against the
Green Bay Packers, according to Eric D. Williams of the News Tribune. McDaniel
was acquired by Seattle this offseason as a free agent and was expected to
provide an immediate boost to the Seahawks defensive line and possibly even
push for a starting job. However, McDaniel suffered a groin...
Seahawks have ruled out wide receiver Sidney Rice and tight end Zach Miller for
their next preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN.com's Terry Blount. Seattle appears to be taking every precaution with their offensive
weapons as Rice spent all week running full speed in practice and Miller has since
told reporters he is completely healthy at...
Mired by mistakes, the Seattle Seahawks still slogged out a win at Lambeau Field.
After steamrolling over their first two preseason opponents, the Seahawks nearly tripped themselves up in a 17-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Friday night.
All the pushing and shoving, and the penalties -- 14 for Seattle, and 22 for both teams -- in part overshadowed Seattle's victory...
Just Marshawn Lynch tickling Aaron Rodgers’ mustache.
