Wilson on Seattle:
Although his off-season signing with Washington brought him home, Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson returns to his ‘home away from home’ in Seattle this weekend.
Wilson, a second round draft pick to the Seahawks in 2007, sat down with “The John Thompson Show” on ESPN 980 to discuss his time in Seattle. The first thing he discussed was the absurd volume of the fabled 12th man at Qwest Field/CenturyLink Field:
“It definitely gets you going,” Wilson said. ”As a defensive player, that’s when we got the bulk of [the noise]. It was almost just as tough as a defensive player to be able to communicate as it was for the offense. But there’s nothing like making a big play as a defensive player there, because you’re gonna hear a stadium roar.”
The same can be said for special occasions on offense. Last year in the playoffs, when the Seahawks (7-9) hosted the Saints (11-5) at Qwest Field, the Seahawks managed one of the greatest upsets in NFL playoffs history.

Sean was one of the few that didn't let up, even at the Pro Bowl. Ask Brian Moorman.Last year I wrote a piece on Sean Taylor, his life, his career and interviewed several people for their opinions and where they were when they heard he had lost his life. This year, I would like to put his life into the personal perspective of a die-hard Redskins fan. That fan just happens to...

There isn’t much left for Seahawks coach Pete Carroll to do but to start pulling players out of the game who commit too many avoidable penalties. Carroll’s frustration with his team’s penalty woes was at a season-high after Sunday’s 23-17 loss to the Redskins. Seattle committed nine penalties in the game — right around their season average — for 91 yards, and once more...

While sitting here in my post-turkey nirvana, I find my mind wondering to some unexpected places. One of those places included an internal debate on how many wins the Seahawks need down the stretch to avoid the season being “disappointing.” The … [visit site to read more]
If he knew what caused it, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll certainly wasn’t saying. But for whatever reason, Michael Robinson and DeAngelo Hall were at the center of a minor skirmish preceding the coin toss prior to Washington’s 23-17 win over the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on Sunday. “It came from them. I don’t know why they were doing that,” Carroll said. “You have to...
