Pete Carroll and his Seattle Seahawks got a gift from the replacement refs earlier this season, the other night Carroll was getting a gift from his Seahawks defense when they held the San Francisco 49ers to just 13 points. Carrol should have UN-leashed his rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson only attempted 23 passes completing 9 of them for 122 yards. You aren’t going to beat the 49ers with numbers like that.
Carroll had his team running the ball more often than not. The Seahawks rushed the ball 29 times for a total of 136 yards. Carroll should have tried to throw more passes in the game. Wilson has shown he can get the job done and the head coach should have had more faith in his young quarterback. The Seahawks are having a decent season, however if the head coach is going to keep his offense under restraints it is going to be difficult for the Seahawks to win the big games.
To hold the 49ers offense to just 13 points, is not an easy task. To hold the 49ers to just 13 points and to lose the game is not easy either. The Seahawks head coach should have more faith in his rookie quarterback and he should have been able to throw the football more than 23 times in a game that could have made a statement for Seattle. Perhaps Pete Carroll is doing too much being the VP of football operations and the team’s head coach.

This clip hit the internet over the weekend that involved Seattle Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka urinating on sidelines during their Thursday night game against the San Francisco 49ers. Hauschka was being shielded by two members of the Seahawks staff holding towels.The original clip was flipped sideways, so we adjusted it so you won’t have to hold your computer sideways or crank...
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh wasn’t happy with how physical the Seahawks’ cornerbacks were on Thursday night and he plans on talking to the NFL.“I wouldn’t use the words, ‘locked up,’” Harbaugh said Friday, per CSNBayArea.com. “We’ll take that up with the officials (NFL office) and get their view of it.”49ers quarterback Alex Smith agrees with his...
Perhaps it should have been expected that if Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson was going to endure an ugly performance early in his first season, it would probably be on the road against San Francisco's stellar defense.
What wasn't expected in Seattle's 13-6 loss to the 49ers on Thursday night was a number of dropped passes, some at critical moments, and a Seahawks...
Bump in the Road
I’m sure most people out there are as frustrated as I am with that disappointing Seahawks loss to the 49ers on Thursday night. Once again the defense did its job and the offense just never seemed to find its groove.
The Seahawks are now 0-3 against NFC West opponents which is a problem, however let’s just sit back and take our hands away from the panic button...
HEART WASN'T IN IT
Following the team's win over the Seahawks Thursday night, 49ers guard Alex Boone said this about Seattle's defense: "We just kind of felt them start to give up a little bit."
The Patriots found out the hard way that CenturyLink Field is a tough place to play football games. But does Seattle truly have the NFL's biggest home-field advantage?
According to Andrew Mooney from the Harvard College Sports Analysis Collective, they do. According to the study, the Seahwaks gain the most from playing at home while the Patriots hardly gain anything...
The Seahawks put the final nail in their coffin on Thursday night when they were called for a holding penalty in their own end zone with under a minute left to play, giving the Niners a two-possession lead. Or, should we say, it would have given San Francisco a two-possession lead had Jim Harbaugh not declined the penalty.
The play also happened to be 4th down, and Seattle came up...
This one hurt
The Seattle Seahawks were in prime time again Thursday, heading to San Francisco to take on the division rival 49ers. It was a battle of top defenses and a battle for first place in the division, two races the Seahawks lost over the course of the night.
It was a painful loss as the Seahawks had several opportunities to extend their lead or to take the lead back from...
Damn it.The Seahawks' defense rattled Smith, which is good, but Wilson completed just 36.36% of his passes for barely over 100 yards. His receivers have a big share in the blame for that (they allowed multiple passes to bounce off their hands), but the rookie QB still has a habit of putting his o-linemen in impossible situations with his scrambling. I also have a problem...

No Game Balls This Week
Last time I had the unfortunate responsibility of doing ‘What Went Wrong’, the first line was ‘Hey! Only 5 penalties!’ Well this time, I’m leading off with this:
5 drops. 5 freakin’ drops. Unacceptable!
So frustrating to watch, and frustrating for the Seahawks rookie QB Russell Wilson to have happen. Tough game, tough team, hostile environment...

Boxscore | Play-by-Play | Q’s Post Game Recap
When the Seattle Seahawks 2012 schedule was released I knew that going down to San Francisco on such a short week was going to be a tall order. To make maters worse, it was the 49ers third straight home game.
Both teams only had 4 days to prepare for the big divisional matchup. The Seattle...
After Frank Gore rushed all over the Seattle Seahawks defense last night, I thought to myself that is seems like Gore always owns the Seahawks defense. So I decided I would go look up Gore’s stats against the Seahawks.
Since taking over the full time role in 2006, he had 2 carries for 5 yards in 2005, Gore has rushed for 1210 yards on 224 carries (5.4 avg) and 4 touchdowns in 13...
