How The Seattle Seahawks Will Or Won’t Stay On Top

It’s much easier to reach the top of the mountain than it is to stay on top of the mountain. Given the Seattle Seahawks’ most recent two-year run, NFL observers consider the Seahawks to be on the top of the heap. Or at least within about one yard of it. Offseason prognostications unanimously list the […]


Kicking The NFL While It’s Down – Why The U.S. Senate Isn’t Letting Up About Washington’s Mascot

On Tuesday, Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) stood on the Senate floor like a boss in sunglasses (he’s still recovering from a January injury) and shamed the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell over their refusal to address the racist antiquated name of Washington’s football team: the Redskins. “I find it stunning that the National Football League […]

Frank Clark Has Seattle Seahawks, Schneider Painted Into A Corner

If you didn’t know who Frank Clark was before May 1, you certainly do now. As if they intended to help me prove my point about their ongoing disdain for high-round draft picks, the Seattle Seahawks took a — let’s kindly call it “questionable” — risk on their only NFL Draft day two pick (they […]

Seattle Seahawks Face Criticism Over Draft Pick

The 2015 NFL Draft is now in the books and the grades are out.

Seattle Seahawks – The Perfect Draft

With your first pick in the NFL draft, you select a pass rusher who will collect 19.5 sacks in his first three seasons, good for the third-best start in franchise history behind only Jeff Bryant and Cortez Kennedy.

Seattle Seahawks Draftland – Where The First Round Doesn’t Matter

It’s been said that the Seattle Seahawks are a “draft-and-develop” team so often that we generally accept it as fact. What’s more true of recent Seahawks squads is that the blue birds excel at drafting and developing later-round prospects. The top two rounds? Not so much. Can you have a good team without hitting on […]

Unconventional Extreme – A Future Without Russell Wilson

Column courtesy of, a partner of Oregon Sports News Pete Carroll and John Schneider love to defy convention. They take cornerbacks that everyone else says are too tall and stiff, and make them into All-Pros and spendy free agents.

Which Seattle Seahawks Belong On The Team’s Mount Rushmore?

With Russell Wilson on the cusp of becoming the highest paid player on the Seattle Seahawks, if not in the entire National Football League, many fans have begun to debate where Wilson ranks among the greatest Seahawks of all time.

Are The Seattle Seahawks Running Away From The Future At Running Back?

The last time the Seattle Seahawks invested a high (second-round) draft pick on a running back was in 2013, when they selected Christine Michael out of Texas A&M with what was their first selection in that draft. That’s par for the course in Seattle. To uncover the last time the Seahawks invested that high of […]


Seattle Seahawks Hope Jimmy Graham Doesn’t Turn Into Percy Harvin

“[Michael] Bennett was also asked about the team’s trade for [Jimmy] Graham, who he famously labeled ‘soft’ and ‘overrated’ following a playoff game in 2014.  ‘I still feel the same way,’ Bennett said. ‘Just because he’s on my team I don’t stop feeling that way. Obviously I’m going to be a better teammate to him […]

Keep On Dreaming, Russell Wilson … But Not About Baseball

There was quite a buzz over the weekend on various sports outlets and on social media, stemming from the interview Bryant Gumbel of HBO’s Real Sports conducted with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

A (Sort Of) Conversation With Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider

Not long after the NFL owner’s meetings convened, I sat down for a conversation with Seattle Seahawks General Manager, and close personal friend, John Schneider. The following exchange took place in a seedy bar in a sketchy section of Scottsdale, AZ. And completely in my own mind. Brad Stickney (BS): Bro, good to see you. […]
