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

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?

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.
