Seattle Seahawks Are A Team In Transition

The 2–3 Seattle Seahawks have some decisions to make.

Russell Wilson, God, And His Place In Sports

After a recent Sunday Night Football game in which the Green Bay Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers trolled Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson by saying; “God was a Packers fan tonight.” It was an obvious jab at Wilson, who after the Seahawks comeback win in last season’s NFC Championship game, gave God […]


Who’s That Guy?! Exploring Thomas Rawls

Most things went right for the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday as they trounced the Chicago Bears 26-0. The offense finally decided to involve their most talented pass catcher, targeting tight-end Jimmy Graham eight times. He caught seven balls, racking up 83 yards and a touchdown. Rookie Tyler Lockett continued to look like a sexy stud […]

Breaking Vegas

Breaking Vegas With Garrett Thornton – Week Four

Three weeks into Breaking Vegas and I have been 47% accurate. Not what I was hoping for. It’s just average, mediocre, what a lot of other slubs in Vegas are able to do. But look at it this way; the Baltimore Ravens, Seattle Seahawks, and Philadelphia Eagles were all seen as Super Bowl contenders coming […]

Seattle Status – Checking In With The Seahawks And Mariners

The Seattle Mariners have just nine games left in their disappointing season and the Seattle Seahawks have played only two into their 16-game schedule. So with one ship heading into the harbor and the other passing it on its way out to sea, now would be an excellent time to play doctor and take each […]

Andrew Luck

Smart Guys On CTE – Yes, It’s Serious

There’s the New York Jets and Indy Colts on Monday Night Football, one guided by a Harvard guy the other by a Stanford guy. Smart guys from smart schools playing a little football. What are they thinking? Ryan Fitzpatrick and Andrew Luck have got to know about CTE. They probably heard about it in college. […]

Breaking Vegas With Garrett Thornton – Week Three

Week Two was a bounce back week for Breaking Vegas. Starting the season with a 2-3 record wasn’t ideal, but following that up with a 4-1 was just what the doctor ordered. The only game to let me down last week was Tennessee vs. Cleveland. I picked Tennessee after they came off their dominant performance […]

Kam Chancellor

Return Of The Kam

News broke yesterday that Kam Chancellor is ending his holdout and heading back to Seattle. Hallelujah! The NFL season is hard enough without voluntarily playing a man down, and an All-Pro man at that. As this chapter of the 2015 season comes to a close, we can reflect on what we learned, what future implications […]
