Seattle Seahawks should be a playoff team in 2014, but 10 sleepers will challenge

One of the great things about the NFL is that nearly every team can make a case for the upcoming season being “their year.” That’s because every campaign sees plenty of worst-to-first turnarounds, where non-playoff teams from the year before suddenly find themselves in postseason contention down the stretch.

Back it up: the Tarvaris Jackson & Terrelle Pryor battle

The name Russell Wilson raises a lot of questions. Is he an elite quarterback? Is the the most underpaid player in the NFL today? Is he in fact a robot, or is Johnny Five really alive? While there’s no doubt that he will be the Seahawks starter in 2014, one of the more interesting questions is who will be his backup. That spot has been an interesting one ever since the Seahawks...

Pete Carroll will be inducted into the USC Hall of Fame

I find it very funny that USC has distanced themselves from Reggie Bush, but will induct Pete Carroll into their Hall of Fame after he was a part of an era that landed them a four-year bowl ban as well as other punishments from the NCAA for breaking the rules. Some USC fans still have bitter feelings about Pete Carroll’s departure.  But the Seattle Seahawks head coach will...

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...

Pete Carroll shouldn’t be demoted to a coordinator, but these 10 guys should

Every NFL head coach essentially takes the same path to their job. They work their way through the assistant coaching ranks, starting at the bottom of the totem poll, bouncing from place to place in order to move up the ladder, and finally landing a job as a coordinator. In that spot, they flourish, becoming an integral part of a team’s success. Because of that, a coach becomes...

Pete Carroll says we’ve had a fantastic offseason

You may have heard by now that no Super bowl winning team has won a playoff game the following year since the 2005 New England Patriots. The biggest reason for this is likely the inevitable free agent losses that come after winning it all: players cash in when the iron is hot and leave their old teams with holes on the roster. Another major factor is a lack of competitive fire: it...
