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. The Seahawks managed to get Marshawn Lynch over 100 yards rushing, they won the turnover...

Crunch Time – Your Seahawks Visit Chiefs In NFL Week 11

This Is A Tough One for Hawks The Seattle Seahawks head to the barbecue capital of the world Sunday to meet the Kansas City Chiefs.  With the Seahawks still two games down to the Cardinals in the NFC West, every game has become critical. Historically speaking, winning in Kansas City has not come easy for the Seahawks.  The former conference rivals squared off often in the past...

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 leave...

N.Y. Giants at Seattle Seahawks Takeaways

Seattle Getting Back To Strengths What a headline. SEAHAWKS RUN OVER GIANTS! Perhaps it took a bit longer than anyone would have cared for but the 2014 Seattle Seahawks certainly got back to what won them a Super Bowl last season– They ran the ball. For weeks now fans and I alike have been screaming and begging for the Seahawks to get the ball back in to the hands of Marshawn Lynch...

Your Seattle Seahawks Face the NY Giants in NFL Week 10

Defeating The Giants Must Be Priority For Seattle The NFL schedule marches on and the Seattle Seahawks are faced with the task of beating Eli Manning and the New York Giants in the cozy confines of Century Link Field. While the Giants are not a very good football team they are better than the Oakland Raiders whom the Seahawks edged past last week.  The Hawks are going to have to...

Oakland Raiders at Seattle Seahawks Takeaways

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...

TSN1040 fanned on the shot…Nucks fans…weigh in!

Change isn’t always good If you have tuned into the majority of Canucks games this season on TSN1040, you will have noticed that something wasn’t quite the same as seasons past. Gone is Rick Ball and for all but 28 games so to is John “Shorty” Shorthouse.  With Ball now calling games for the Calgary Flames and Shorthouse only coming out for Rogers Sportsnet national broadcasts...

Homecoming — Seahawks Face Raiders In NFL Week 9

Seahawks Must Be Careful With Raiders On the surface, everything looks just so for the Seattle Seahawks in week 9 of the NFL schedule. After playing three of the last four games on the road the Hawks get to go home to the roaring comfort of Century Link Field to face a winless opponent in the Oakland Raiders. How could the Seahawks possibly lose this game?  It seems nearly impossible...

Mariners Part Ways With Justin Smoak – Is Saunders Next?

Slugging First Baseman Now A Jay In a move that one had to figure was coming sooner or later the Seattle Mariners finally made a decision about their problems at first base this week.  Justin Smoak was placed on waivers and claimed by the Toronto Blue Jays. What it means, at least for now, is that the Mariners are going to go with Logan Morrison at first.  I say “for now” because...

Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers Takeaways

Hawks Snap Two Game Losing Streak With Win The Seattle Seahawks went into Carolina in a bit of trouble.  A loss meant that the team would have lost three games in a row dropping their record to 3-4 and making it very tough for them to make the playoffs. Fortunately, that’s not what happened.  It was a bit ugly, but the Seahawks showed some fortitude against a tough opponent on...

Is It Must Win Time? Seahawks at Panthers Preview

Seattle Must Make Statement After suffering two losses in a row for the first time in what seems like forever the Seattle Seahawks head to the east coast to take on a very tough Carolina Panthers team this Sunday. I think it’s fair to say that the Seahawks have not been themselves as of late in virtually every facet of the game.  When you combine their 3-3 record and recent performance...

Special teams shaky and penalties persist in latest Seahawks loss

Seahawks Drop Two In Row Before the game and the Percy Harvin fiasco I predicted the Seattle Seahawks would lose this game.  There is zero joy in predicting that the Seahawks would drop their second game in a row but that’s just what happened. Thanks to a plethora of penalties and some very gutsy play calling by Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher the Rams were able to just outlast what...

Rapid reaction– Percy Harvin Traded By The Seahawks

“Sooner” Came Much Sooner Than Anyone Thought I’m not about to sit here and tell you that I foresaw the Seattle Seahawks trading Percy Harvin Friday evening to the New York Jets.  No one did, and if they claim to, I have a feeling that they also sell Amway products. What I am going to tell you is that the Seattle Seahawks making this move to get rid of Harvin was inevitable...

Who is Jack eyeing?  Seattle Mariners Top Free Agent Targets

Adding Offense Must Be Priority For M’s For the Seattle Mariners the 2014 season is finished.  Yes, the MLB playoffs rage on but the Mariners fell a single game short of joining the postseason party.  I know many of you are still pointing to one game or another that they should have won or some stat where the M’s were lacking in 2014. I say it’s time to move forward. It...

If You Thought The Cowboys Were Tough… Still smarting from an ugly loss at home to the Cowboys your Seattle Seahawks travel to St. Louis to face the division rival Rams this weekend. And it just might get ugly yet again for the Seahawks. Multiple issues for the Hawks seem to be getting worse, not better as the season progresses.  Here’s a look at what I’ll be watching for...

My Takeaways From Seahawks Home Loss To The Cowboys

Seahawks Are Not The Same Team In 2014 One thing is clear as of Week 6 of the 2014-15 NFL season. Your 2014 Seattle Seahawks are not the same team they were a year ago. This past Sunday, Seattle was handed its first home loss of the year (30-23) to the Dallas Cowboys, and quite frankly, it was not that close. To make matters worse, now the team has some injury trouble. Byron...

Something To Remember:  Seattle Mariners 2014 Season Rewind

Expectations Now Higher Than Ever From the streak of games Felix Hernandez put together pitching seven innings while allowing two or fewer runs, or playing meaningful games until the last day of the regular season, the 2014 Seattle Mariners certainly are something to remember. As the postseason progresses without the Mariners I thought I’d take some time to review some of my most...

What I’m Watching As The Seahawks Take On The Cowboys

Dallas Is No Picnic This Time The Seattle Seahawks will square off against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 of the NFL season in their only home game in October. Normally when I see Dallas on the Seahawk’s schedule I start giggling thinking about all of those Tony Romo blunders I have witnessed over the past several years. This year, the Cowobys are different however. The self proclaimed...

My Takeaways From Seahawks at Washington

Score Does Not Reflect Hawk’s Domination Having watched the primetime Monday Night Football contest between the Seattle Seahawks and Washington a couple of times now it’s clear to me that the Hawks should have run away with that game. As you know, Washington seemed to hang around until well into the 4th quarter and it really wasn’t because of anything they did–  It was because...

Redskins vs. Seahawks — What I Am Watching For

A blowout in the making? The defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks make their first appearance on Monday night football during the NFL’s week five in a match up that may have lost some of its luster. The host team, the Washington Redskins, have lost Robert Griffin III to injury and really have not looked like the potent team they once were in the NFC.  Most odds makers...

The American League Cy Young Debate: Kluber vs. Felix

Does Cleveland’s Kluber Have A Shot vs. Felix? In the midst of one of Seattle Mariner’s Ace Felix Hernandez‘s worst starts of his career a strange argument erupted between some east coast colleagues of mine.  In a single sentence, the argument went something like this. This start just cost Felix Hernandez the 2014 AL Cy Young award. The start in question is the Felix’s 2nd...

Portland Trail Blazers: 5 storylines entering 2014-15 NBA season

Plenty To Talk About The Portland Trail Blazers have officially begun training camp, which means one thing. Basketball is back in Rip City. As fun as the offseason has been for fans across the league (we can thank LeBron James and Kevin Love for that), it was a relatively quiet summer for the Trail Blazers. The two moves that made headlines were the signings of Steve Blake and Chris...

Vancouver Canucks – 5 Games To Watch

We’re nearly there… As of this writing, Vancouver Canucks fans are not yet penciling in a potential parade route, with the team sitting at a so-so 3-2 in the preseason. Sure, they have only played three teams so far during the exhibition schedule — the Calgary Flames, San Jose Sharks and the Arizona Coyotes. Notice, though, the key word in the first sentence is “penciling”...
