A Battle For Supremacy: The Seahawks Head to Arizona in NFL Week 16.

Division Rivalry Games Don’t Come Any Bigger To poetically say, “It all comes down to this” wouldn’t be 100% accurate but the Seattle Seahawks upcoming matchup against the Arizona Cardinals is without question, their biggest game of the year so far. Yes, the Seahawks would still be mathematically alive in the playoff chase should they go down to Phoenix and lose this Sunday...

Mariners Quest For A Full Time Right Fielder May Come Up Empty

No Melky, No Rios, Now What? After seemingly being on the verge of signing free agent right fielder Melky Cabrera the Seattle Mariners instead swung and missed as he wound up signing a three year deal with the White Sox. Why did this happen?  Maybe the Mariners wouldn’t go four years.  Maybe they didn’t think Melky was worth $14 million per season when that’s pretty much...

Is Seattle Underestimating The 49ers? The quest for back to back NFC West Championships for the Seattle Seahawks takes them home this week to face their most hated division rival, the San Francisco 49ers. For the Seahawks, the road to the division crown is simple: Win your final three games. For the 49ers, well, the playoffs are probably not a realistic opportunity anymore while...

The Seattle Mariners Hot Stove Keeps Cranking

Is Melky Cabrera The Latest M’s Addition? The buzz is reaching a fever pitch for Seattle Mariners fans during this offseason. The Mariner’s General Manager, Jack Zduriencik, has been on a spending spree that stretches back all the way to last year’s off-season when they signed Robinson Cano.  And it doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon either. Jack Zduriencik says...

Seahawks Take Down Eagles Amidst A Chorus Of Boos

Seahawks Control Their Destiny With Philly Win It doesn’t happen very often, but I was right this time.  24-14 was exactly the final score Sunday afternoon as the Seattle Seahawks played an excellent game of keep-away against the Philadelphia Eagles. It really wasn’t that close either.  The Seahawks dominated time of possession. The game reminded of two older brothers throwing...

Birds Of A Feather:  Seahawks at Eagles Preview

Seahawks Win Could Decide Home Field I feel like I keep saying this but a win for the Seattle Seahawks against the Philadelphia Eagles would be a monster accomplishment for the Hawks in 2014.  A win could just land the Seahawks not just a playoff spot but potentially home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Anyone want to come to Century Link and try and win a playoff game...

Slugging Right Fielder Signs With Seattle Well now, that was an interesting first day of December wasn’t it?  If you are a Seattle Mariners fan and somehow missed the news the Seattle Mariners continue to sign big checks.

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Takeaways

Hawks Regain Swagger and Playoff Contention The Seattle Seahawks certainly gave us reason to be thankful this year.  In front of a hostile, holiday crowd in Santa Clara, the Seahawks decided to eat the 49ers for Thanksgiving dinner, then have turkey for dessert. Posting an identical score as the Cardinal game, the Seahawks beat the 49ers 19-3 and quite frankly, it wasn’t even...

Happy Thanksgiving – Seahawks at 49ers Is Must Eat Turkey TV

Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks Takeaways

Hawks Come Up Big When It Counts The 2014 Seattle Seahawks certainly have had their ups and downs this season.  Fortunately for them, and Hawk fans across the northwest, the Seahawks chose to have an up, as opposed to a down, when their entire season was on the line against the division leading Arizona Cardinals Sunday. The Seahawks were literally backed into a corner.  A loss...

The 2014 Seattle Mariners Off-Season Stove Is Heating Up

Kyle Seager has 100 Million Reasons To Be Thankful The Seattle Mariners start to the offseason has been painfully slow.  Perhaps that feeling has been artificially created by an unusually quick start to the MLB off-season for other teams.  Look at what we’ve seen already. Victor Martinez signed big money to stay with the Tigers, the Braves traded Heyward in a blockbuster deal...

It’s Now Or Never – Your Seahawks host Cardinals In NFL Week 12

Hawk Playoff Hopes On The Line Call it the Super Bowl jinx.  Blame it on a mountain of injuries or a loss of depth at key positions during the off-season.  Maybe you could even call it a combination of all three of those things but make no mistake about it.  The 2014 Seattle Seahawks are playing for their proverbial playoff lives this Sunday as they square off with the Arizona...

Seattle Seahawks at Kansas City Chiefs Takeaways

Losses, Injuries & Frustration Continues To Mount For Hawks The Seattle Seahawks visited “friendly” Arrowhead stadium on Sunday hoping for a win over former divisional rival Kansas City to try and keep pace with the NFC West leading Arizona Cardinals and it simply wasn’t meant to be.

Should The Seattle Mariners Attempt To Re-Sign Their Own Free Agents?

Six M’s Players Not Under Club Control Headed Into Winter While I, and virtually everyone else, have been talking about big name free agents and possible trades the Seattle Mariners should be considering this winter, no one seems to be considering the M’s own free agents. The Mariners do have six names on that list, and while none of them are along the lines of a Robinson Cano...

Seattle Mariners Free Agent Gossip and Trade Scenarios

MLB Offseason Red Hot Already The Seattle Mariners have big plans.  They want offense.  They want to make splash in the off-season just one year after making the biggest splash of all in signing Robinson Cano. What can they do?  Well, we know they aren’t going to get Victor Martinez as he has already spurned a Mariner overture and re-signed with the Tigers. Where does that...

Same Old Problems for Seattle And A Few New Ones The Seattle Seahawks faced off against a winless Oakland Raiders team Sunday.  Seattle came away with the victory but it was hardly the resounding win one would expect from a defending Super Bowl Champion playing against a winless team. In the end I suppose a “W” is a “W” but the Seahawks are going to have to find a way to...

What it means, at least for now, is that the Mariners are going to go with Logan Morrison at first.  I say “for now”...
