Rams Rumors: How far off is St. Louis?

Just how far off are the St. Louis Rams from becoming a playoff team again? Despite losing their starting QB for the year and their second-string QB for most of the year, the Rams are 4-7. 4-7 may not seem like a good record, but for a team in the brutal NFC West, with a slew of injuries, that’s pretty good. The Rams have run into a lot of problems this year, Sam Bradford...

Enemy Intelligence/Previewing the Titans-Colts Matchup

This was supposed to be the first Enemy Intelligence post of the season, but I ran into a snag. The Colts in their first two games played Broncos and Eagles teams that are much better than the Titans. They got down early to the Broncos and didn’t play well late against the Eagles. Both games, which I watched both live and afterward, were hard to get a read from. The Colts then...

Where I Inappropriately Process the Adrian Peterson Debacle

Listen, this is some real bad news, OK? Probably one of my top-five all time favorite Vikings sounds like he’s got some SERIOUS mental problems. He whips kids up pretty good. I don’t know yet if it’s fair to say he “beats” kids, because that evokes imagery of closed fist punches to within an inch of a kid’s life or something. He isn’t doing that, but he’s still physically...

Ten teams that should give Tim Tebow a call

He hasn’t been seen in awhile, at least on the football field. The only vision of Tim Tebow of late has been on the SEC Network, where he currently is filling the role of a college football analyst. While that gig helps pass the time, and brings in a paycheck, the former Heisman Trophy winner still itches to get back in the game. The quarterback who electrified the league with...

Seahawks Keeping Three Quarterbacks

ESPN Seahawks reporter Terry Blount reported today that it looks as if Seattle will carry three quarterbacks going into the season with Tarvaris Jackson being named the backup. Pryor’s athleticism and potential seem too good to pass on, and with Jackson only under contract for this year, the team is willing to spend a valuable roster spot to keep him under their tutelage.

Legion of Boomer could fill in at quarterback for Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks are pretty much set at the quarterback position. They know that Russell Wilson is their starter and should be for a long time. They also have a healthy backup battle going on right now between steady Tarvaris Jackson and freak athlete Terrelle Pryor. There’s also B.J. Daniels. But what if they all somehow were unavailable? Let’s play a hypothetical scenario...

It was a Super Bowl XLVIII re-match, sorta

Seahawks at Broncos It was 2,890 miles and six months ago that the Seattle Seahawks embarrassed Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.  I don’t care how much he denied being embarrassed, the reality remains that he was either embarrassed or stupid. Since Manning is one of the smartest players in the NFL, my money is on embarrassed. The first quarter of the preseason debut started...

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. Some of this is nothing more than false hope, summertime bravado that...

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...

Terrelle Pryor on Position Switch: “I Can’t Catch”

Currently Terrelle Pryor sits 3rd on the depth chart at the quarterback position for the Seahawks, behind Russell Wilson and Tarvaris Jackson, and it looks like that’s where he’ll stay if he ends up sticking with the team. Pryor might be able to improve his chances of making the final roster if he considered changing positions, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon, based...

Seattle Seahawks: Why Tarvaris Jackson should be nervous

Currently the Seattle Seahawks have five quarterbacks: Russell Wilson, Tarvaris Jackson, B.J. Daniels, Terrelle Pryor and Keith Price. As training camp goes on throughout the summer, the coaches will need to make difficult decisions to cut the 90-man roster to 53. Jackson may be one of the players who gets cut. Jackson was the 64th overall pick by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2006...

Seattle Seahawks: Could Tarvaris Jackson get cut?

This year’s class of rookies have impressed at the OTAs of the Seattle Seahawks. Many are fighting for a spot on the final roster, so it is time to consider which veterans on the team are liable to be cut to make way for these impressive rookies. For me, one guy that stands out is backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson. Jackson signed a one year, $1.25 million contract this offseason...

What grade do the Seahawks get at the quarterback position?

No other position in sports gets the kind of attention that a quarterback does. The skillset of an NFL quarterback demands more of an athlete than perhaps any other from a holistic physical, mental and emotional standpoint. A quarterback must be smart enough to memorize a playbook, strong enough to throw pinpoint rockets 40 yards, and steady enough to lead his team when everything...

How deep are the Seahawks at the quarterback position?

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll believes in competition. He doesn’t just hand out starting roles based on name recognition, how big a player’s contract is, or what they have done in the past. Carroll is only interested in results. That’s how Russell Wilson won the QB1 spot in 2012, beating out the favored Matt Flynn and Tarvaris Jackson. Now prior to the 2014 season...
