Robert Griffin III
Over the last few games, we’ve seen Russell Wilson start to come into his own, first with a good showing on the road against the Lions, then with a great game at home against the Jets’ top-five pass defense. As I said in last week’s stats article, the Seahawks appear to have finally found their next franchise quarterback, and unlike the Redskins, who effectively used up four high-round picks in order to land Robert Griffin III, all John Schneider and Pete Carroll had to do to acquire Wilson was wait patiently until their number came up in the third round.
But bargain or not, Wilson can look forward to a great many comparisons to Matt Hasselbeck in the years ahead. All new NFL starters are inevitably measured against the last great player to man his position for the team in question, but no one has to put up with more of that kind of relentless scrutiny than quarterbacks. Even when a quarterback has a pretty strong career, if he didn’t perform better than the team’s previous ...

This is the second controversy Golden Tate...

When Reggie Bush got his chance to face Pete Carroll in the NFC playoffs two seasons ago, he couldn't wait. It was the opportunity to show off before his former college coach when injuries in the New Orleans backfield left Bush as the featured back.
Then Bush carried the ball just five times and was left watching Carroll celebrate the Seahawks' upset victory of the then...
The Seattle Seahawks have been one of the best home teams in the NFL. If they want to parlay their best start since 2007 into a playoff appearance, however, they'll likely need to play more consistently on the road.
They can start Sunday when they visit a Miami Dolphins team looking to avoid its fourth straight loss.
Seattle has won two in a row coming out of its bye and is...

The prevailing theory was that he would sit on the bench this year and start next year. Tannehill obviously didn’t get that memo; he went out and grabbed the starting job before the first game of the season...
