The Rhino and Compass:
Russell Wilson gained a lot of publicity going into last season by winning the starting quarterback role as a rookie, despite being a 3rd round draft pick. Wilson is intelligent, athletic and a strong leader, showing veteran like poise in his first year in the league. Many people, especially those who touted him before he broke out (I would be the same way if I was right on a youngster) now view Wilson as an elite quarterback, and a good candidate to lead their fantasy football teams. I’m not one of those people, and I have a few reasons for that.
First, I don’t think that his quarterbacking skills on the regular football field necessarily translate to those on the fantasy football league. Wilson was 23rd in total yards last season. It wasn’t a lack of skill on his part at all, it was a dedication to a ground game by the Seahawks and a wide receiver corps that couldn’t stay healthy and didn’t have all that much to work with to begin with. The ‘Hawks still have Marshawn Lynch, draf...
BEST OF MAXIM

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...
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...
Stephen Cohen of SeattlePI.com believes Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate still looks like he’s ready for a break season in 2013.
Cohen believes that without Percy Harvin, Seattle will be fine. And I happen to agree with him.
Even without Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin, the Hawks’ receivers stood out. Kearse caught his second touchdown pass of the preseason, as did Williams...
According to Local21News.com, Seahawks defensive tackle Jordan Hill has a partially torn biceps muscle and will miss about 3-6 weeks.
Hill’s injury was believed to be much more serious, but an MRI taken was negative for a complete tear and he will not require surgery, according to a source with knowledge of the injury. The Seahawks have yet to announce the injury. A team spokesman...

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...
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...
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...
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...
The Seattle Seahawks' offensive juggernaut hit a speed bump at Lambeau Field.
The Green Bay Packers weren't exactly lighting up the scoreboard, either.
