Smith goes from MVP to barely seeing field for Seattle

3 under the radar Super Bowl MVP candidates

The eventual Super Bowl MVP is often easy to predict long before the game even begins. That’s because superstar players tend to do heroic things on the NFL’s grandest stage. Of the players who have received the prestigious MVP hardware, over half have been quarterbacks (26), and only nine have been defensive players.

What is the deepest squad on the Seahawks roster?

Secondary?  Not from where I’m standing. To say the 2013 Seattle Seahawks were a  team blessed with a “deep roster” might be the biggest understatement of the entire NFL season. The Seahawks, thanks to smart drafting and savvy free-agent signings, were the envy of the league when it came to overall roster depth in 2013. Most would point to the secondary, known as the Legion...
