VIDEO: Russell Wilson gets passed over again, this time by little kids

Of all the community service promotions that the NFL takes part in, I think the most worthy is the Play 60 initiative. The idea is to get kids outside and active for at least 60 minutes a day. Childhood obesity rates are skyrocketing in the United States, especially in minority communities. Preventable diseases are now the number one killer of Americans, and the biggest factors are...

Can the Seattle Seahawks exploit the NFL’s new defensive scrutiny?

The Seattle Seahawks got a taste of how the tightened pass-defense rules could impact the game last Friday when cornerback Tharold Simon’s 105-yard interception-returned-for-a-touchdown was taken away on a yellow flag. Over the weekend the NFL admitted the holding penalty was a bad call. They were assisted with intensity by Seattle coach Pete Carroll (himself a college defensive...

Seattle’s approach of “What’s next?” driving Seahawks to look beyond Super Bowl

What a beautiful day in the Renton, Washington attending Seattle Seahawks practice today at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.  I am amazed by the property (second largest facility in the NFL) itself which is bounded by Interstate 405 to the east and Lake Washington to the west.  I honestly cannot see how you could any work done with such an incredible setting.  The Seahawks practice...

Takeaways From The Seahawks First Half Of Preseason

Are the Hawks ready for 2014? Two Seattle Seahawks‘ preseason matchups are finished and we have two to go.

Fighter & the Kid: Urban Meyer says Percy Harvin is one of the greatest of all time

Seattle Seahawks hold steady in middle of preseason Power Rankings, remain No. 2

Every team has played two games. Most of the starters have seen enough action to provide a sense of what a team has to offer. And the picture is becoming clearer around the league. Yes, it’s dangerous to put too much stock in preseason games. But it’s also foolish to ignore information that can be very valuable, which is what exhibitions provide to the keen observer.

2014 Fantasy Football: How Much Does Beast Mode Have Left in the Tank?

Source: Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images North America For a guy that finished as the No. 4 RB in the league last year finishing a run of three straight top seven finishes, Marshawn Lynch sure has fallen out of favor with fantasy owners quickly. The theory seems to be after three straight seasons of over 300 touches, the physical back is destined to breakdown. The assumption of Christine...

He hasn’t had as much opportunity yet [in games] as we’d like to see. The games have just gone in a manner that he hasn’t had to [throw the ball]. But he throws...

Why offense will explode league-wide with the new rules emphasis

When the Seahawks’ dominant defense used a highly physical style of play to grapple and claw their way to a championship — pushing rules to their limit, but still staying (mostly) within them — it was easy to see a course correction coming. But hey, NFL, maybe we can find some middle ground with this new emphasis on defensive holding and pass interference? Because It would...

The positive takeaways from the Chargers’ frustrating loss against Seattle

The Chargers got trounced 41-14 at the hands of the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks on Friday, and it is easy to pile on and tear down San Diego’s performance. There were a lot of bad plays on both sides of the ball.  Seattle sent a warning shot across our bow Friday night, but it was not a direct hit and as much as people say, the ship is not sinking.  While everyone...
