The Seattle Seahawks Made Quarterback News – Just Not The News You Hoped For

Up until Tuesday, your Seattle Seahawks were one blown contract negotiation away from initiating the R.J. Archer era of Seahawks quarterbacking.

Seattle Seahawks Spotlight – Jordan Hill

Column courtesy of Brian Nemhauser of Five players had 14.5 sacks or more in the NFL last season. Jordan Hill would join their ranks in 2015 if he can sustain the pace he set over the last six games of 2014 when he recorded 5.5 sacks. Only Sam Adams, Cortez Kennedy and Brandon Mebane […]

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 […]

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 […]

Russell Wilson

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.
