Predictions for the Seattle Seahawks & NFC West in 2014

1. Seattle Seahawks 12-4   Last year’s champions have all the pieces in place to be good for the next decade. They have stable ownership and coaching, great defense and a quarterback that comes through in the big moments. However, Super Bowl winners typically struggle following a championship. Over the last 15 years, only eight reigning champions have returned to the playoffs...

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson’s preseason was MVP worthy

Even though the Seattle Seahawks got spanked by the Oakland Raiders last night, there was one major positive to takeaway: in the short time he was on the field Russell Wilson played quarterback as perfectly as it can be played in the NFL. On the very first snap of the game Wilson threw a deep pass to wide receiver Jermaine Kearse down the sideline and hit him in stride for 44 yards...

What would Seattle’s all-hometown NFL team look like?

The Seahawks are of course Seattle’s favorite sports team and fans wouldn’t trade them for any other group of players in the world. But what if every NFL team had to start over and only take players who were from their home town? What would Seattle’s NFL team look like then? Thanks to the folks at now we know.

Seattle Seahawks training camp diary: Russell Okung & Bam Bam are back

Another day of Seahawks training camp is in the books and after this weekend’s decidely downer headlines it was great to see two major cogs return to the field after offseason surgery.

Late Round Fantasy Football 'Penny Stocks'

Fantasy Football is a lot like a Football stock market. Last year, the Enron-esque plunge of first rounders Trent Richardson and Ray Rice left many Fantasy owners’ teams worth little. Its important to pick players in the first few rounds who won’t go bankrupt by the middle of the season. It is equally important, however, to find the penny-stocks in the late rounds who can transform...

Seahawks camp preview: which wide receivers make the cut?

Let’s continue our series in previewing each position battle for the Seattle Seahawks going into training camp. Today is the most intriguing of all: the wide receiver position. It’s amazing that this team has stockpiled so much talent while maintaining a reputation for having pedestrian – or in some cases downright awful – receivers. I’m going to break this post up into...

The 2014 Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver Depth Chart

Wide Outs Are Plentiful  It’s hard to believe, but we are well inside 30 days until the first preseason game for the defending Superbowl Champion Seattle Seahawks.

Who will lock up the final Seahawks wide receiver spot?

“Always compete” is more than just a central tenet of Pete Carroll’s Seahawks. For the 13 wide receivers fighting for just six spots on the team’s roster, always competing is necessary to keeping their jobs. After Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice — who both fell to injury early last year — the 2013 Seahawks receiving corps looked slim to outside observers. Golden Tate led...

Speedy Seahawks rookie says he will return punts

When Golden Tate left the Super bowl champs in February to go after that Lannister Lion money, the Seahawks knew they had two voids to fill. Tate led the team in receptions in 2013. A healthy Percy Harvin should take over that distinction next season, but Tate also was the Seahawks’ primary punt returner. Tate’s 585 return yards ranked 2nd best in the NFL, so it’s a lot of...

Is wide receiver Jermaine Kearse the next Doug Baldwin?

Last week the Seahawks signed the tiny but mighty wide receiver and third-down maestro Doug Baldwin to a three-year contract extension worth $13M, with additional performance-based incentives. It’s rare to see any NFL player signed to such a long contract that will pay (relatively) little in overall value: if a team wants to make a long-term commitment to a player, that player...
