Will This Be A Down Year For The Seattle Seahawks?

The Seattle Seahawks have every reason to be excited during this offseason. They finished the season with a 16-3 record, never lost a game by more than 7, and were on the winning side of one of the most lopsided Super Bowl victories ever against a team that had just put together one of the most impressive offensive performances in the history of the NFL, if not the most impressive...

The Seattle Seahawks safeties are strongest in the NFL

The Seattle Seahawks have the best secondary in the league, hands down. No one even comes close.

3 strong safeties who could fill in for injured Kam Chancellor

It was recently reported that Kam Chancellor had hip surgery a month or so ago, and that the odds of him being ready to go by the pre season are very slim. As we know from last year’s experience with Percy Harvin, this team does not rush people back from injuries. So should we be worried about the Strong Safety spot? We have decent backups in Jeron Johnson and Winston Guy, but...
