Top 5 offensive guards for Seahawks in NFL Draft

A little over 8 years ago, just before the start of the season where our beloved Seahawks made their first Super Bowl run, I decided to get into football. My dad was a huge Denver Broncos fan, but being 13 I wanted to be different than him, so I asked him if there were any teams near where I was born (Ellensburg, WA). He said, “Yes, but you don’t want to root for them, they...

Can the Seahawks yank an elite guard in the draft?

As you might expect from a Super bowl champion, the Seattle Seahawks don’t have many weaknesses. They have the best defense in the NFL, possibly the best special teams, and one of the deepest rosters. If there is a major blemish it’s the offensive line. A while back I wrote that the team needs help on the O line as soon as possible. The best thing the group can do is to stay...

The Seahawks offensive line needs help ASAP

It may be a weird thing to say that a Super bowl champion team badly needs help with anything, but facts are facts and the fact is that the Seattle Seahawks offensive line sucks. There. I said it. Throughout the 2013 season a lot of excuses were made for this group. Yes, there were a number of injuries. Breno Giacomini missed seven games, Russell Okung missed eight, Max Unger missed...

Denver Post blames Broncos blowout loss on injuries

When your team loses a football game it’s normal to invent excuses and try to re-write history. If only… what if… well then there was… and so on and so forth. Inventing excuses for your team’s failures is part of being a fan. If you didn’t care, you wouldn’t try to defend them. Based on his most recent article, Mike Klis of the Denver Post should get a tryout with the...

Terrance Knighton will Google Max Unger for trash talk material

One of the most important matchups on Sunday will be how Denver’s defensive line can hold up against Seattle’s offensive line. The middle of the Bronco’s DL is DT Terrance Knighton who will be facing Seahawk’s C Max Unger. Knighton is trying to get every advantage he can get. “Today I’ll start Googling him and doing all types of stuff to guide out his personal life,...

Internet star Lil Terrio danced with cheerleaders, an Austrian man dressed as Mozart, another guy wore a Waldo costume and Nickelodeon's Pick Boy was in the house. Welcome to Media Day, the annual Super Bowl circus. It seems fitting this event was held at a hockey rink, of all places, because there's nothing ordinary about it.

Every Monday during the season we give out Game Balls to the top Seattle Seahawks players from the previous week’s game from each unit. For example, exactly at this time next week we could very well be giving out SUPER BOWL GAME BALLS to the SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS. Ahem. Excuse me. So as there was no game yesterday that actually mattered and because the Seahawks have a non-exhibition...

Seahawks left waiting for division title

The celebration of an NFC West title was put on hold for the Seattle Seahawks. And unless they get some help, the delay could be for at least another two weeks. Seattle's 19-17 loss to San Francisco on Sunday was the Seahawks first setback in more than two months. It snapped a seven-game win streak and left Seattle still needing two more wins - or a win and a 49ers loss -...

Seahawks getting to full strength for stretch run

It almost seems unfair to the rest of the league that the best team in the NFC might be the closest it's been to being fully healthy all season going into Week 11.

Seattle puts it all together in rout of Atlanta

Questioned after two lackluster performances, the Seattle Seahawks gave a resounding argument why they are the best team in the NFC at 9-1. Their 33-10 rout of Atlanta on Sunday featured a dynamic offense led by Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch and an improved defensive effort after two weeks of struggling to stop the run. And Seattle put together its most complete game of the...

Week 10 (11/13): Seahawks at Falcons

Another week, another Seahawks game against an ostensibly inferior opponent.  Earlier in the season this sort of matchup meant we could look forward to watching a huge blowout victory, but after back to back near escapes against the 3-4 Rams and 0-7 Buccaneers, well, let's just say the 2-6 Falcons feel a whole lot less like a circled win than they a couple weeks ago.
