The NFL playoffs have finally arrived and only a few short weeks remain until we can crown a world champion. For now we have wild card weekend to look forward to, and the most enticing game for fans whose team didn’t make the big dance, is Sundays matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins.

The first playoff clash for perhaps the greatest rookie quarterback class ever.
But no team gets to the playoffs without help. Family, friends and support...
The auditorium is usually reserved for coach Pete Carroll during the season and the occasional first-round draft pick being introduced in the spring.
After months of standing behind a small circular table and in front of a makeshift cereal box-shaped backdrop, Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson got the auditorium on Thursday, with the big podium, the microphone stands and...
Washington Redskins players were asked Friday if they think Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman should be playing in Sunday's NFC wild-card game after he won his drug appeal based on improper handling of his urine sample.
"He's a cheater," said Redskins defensive tackle Kedric Golston.

Lynch, who is dealing with a back injury, carried the ball 315 times for 1,590 yards and 11 touchdowns during the regular season.
He was the only player listed on Seattle's injury report on...
Happy New Year 12′s!
So, you woke up yesterday morning a little worse for the wear after overindulging in the New Year’s celebrations with too much Red Hook ESB drained from your giant novelty Seahawks tumbler glass, while drunkenly bragging of once seeing Russell Wilson hanging out at Red Mill burger on North 67th.
It’s the holidays and everyone’s in the mood...
Seahawks: Russell’s Paradox
The Seahawks belong to the Russell set. This is normal and abnormal.
According to naïve set theory…Sluggo, are we really going there? Yes, and before we start, let me remind you, splitting time between identities is a paradox of its own. So it’s not so abnormal to refer to oneself in the third person. After all, I am not Sluggo, and yet, Sluggo...

In the NFC Division Wildcard, you must account for the Seattle Seahawks’ MEAT.
I know it’s not the flashiest thing to talk about. I will concede that it’s easier to talk about Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson (because we all know flashy quarterbacks win playoff games1). Hell, ESPN has virtually made it a quarterback combine competition. At this point I’m surprised that...
The wild card playoffs come to an end with the Redskins and Seahawks. I think it goes without saying that all eyes will be on the two rookie quarterbacks, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson. With both of these players in the forefront to win the AP Offensive Rookie of [...]

Do Or Die at FedEx Field
Key head-to-head match ups will likely determine the outcome of Sunday’s tilt between the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Redskins.
Both teams are riding high of late and trying to turn their late season surges into post season W’s.
Everyone knows the playoffs are a whole different beast compared to the regular 16 games each team has toughed out so...
Depth at quarterback is a rarity in the 21st-centruy NFL. The days of Steve Young coming off of the bench for an injured Joe Montana are gone. Once a backup quarterback establishes himself, he is lost to free agency as he becomes a luxury his team cannot afford – a casualty of the salary cap.
With the emergence of Robert Griffin and Russell Wilson, the Redskins and Seahawks each...
