The Year In Seattle Seahawks – Putting The Super Bowl “Curse” To Rest

The expectations were high: The Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks remained mostly intact, save for the notable departures of DE Red Bryant, T Breno Giacomini, and of course, Mr. Fail Mary himself, WR Golden Tate.  Seattle was everybody’s favorite to win the Super Bowl this season (and by everybody I mean every major forecaster on […]

Brian Hight’s NFL Picks – Week Sixteen

With Oregon Sports News taking the next two weeks off for the holidays, this will actually be my last set of predictions for the regular season. All along, I’ve thought of this endeavor as an experiment to see if certain advanced football metrics like Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA), and later weighted DVOA, could be […]

NFC Wild Card? You Can Have It

There are a handful of NFL teams that are in full control of their playoff destiny. Put the Seattle Seahawks at the top of that list. That’s really good news. Here’s why: Wild Card? Worthless. The top NFC contenders are kings of their home domains. Two of the top four NFC teams are undefeated at […]

Russell Wilson Changes Agent – What Impact Will That Make?

Payday for me isn’t quite as close to an NFL salary as I would like it to be. But at the same time, I haven’t won a Super Bowl, I’m not a Pro-Bowler, and I am definitely not the Chief Football Officer with Alaska Airlines. Of course I’m talking about Seattle Seahawks golden boy Russell […]

Jim Harbaugh

Jim Harbaugh – In Memoriam

It’s over. I’d have put money that it would of ended in a “Beat It” video like knife-fight between Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll. Sadly it was far less dramatic. On Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks put the final dagger into the Jim Harbaugh-era San Francisco 49ers, soundly defeating them 17-7 in a low-scoring brawl. With […]

Fantasy Football Start And Sit – Week Sixteen

RECORD LAST WEEK: 8-10 OVERALL: 146-100-3 Before I start, an update on my own squad, which made it to the semi-finals of my league.  Aaron Rodgers had his worst night of the season, and I lost.  No one is perfect, but I’m happy to have gotten that far in a 12-team league.  Those of you […]

Seattle Seahawks Are Back In Command

If you watched the Seattle Seahawks / Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday (and you did) you’re not even bothered by the Arizona Cardinals anymore. Those pesky red birds managed to pull themselves out of a tailspin by defeating the previously playoff-bound Kansas City Chiefs at home. Sure the division-leading Cardinals kept a one-game advantage on […]

Fantasy Football Start And Sit – Week Fifteen

RECORD LAST WEEK: 14-6 OVERALL: 138-90-3 Arizona at St. Louis Start: St. Louis Defense Arizona is in a funk with Drew Stanton, and while they rallied versus the other Missouri team, the Rams defense has been fantastic with seven sacks versus Washington. Sit: Kerwynn Williams, RB, ARZ Williams had a good first showing replacing Andre […]

It’s ‘D’ Day For The Seattle Seahawks

Suddenly, the lost season … not so lost after all. It’s defense with a capital “D” time. The Seattle Seahawks’ defense is back. Just in time to determine their January plans. Missing key components throughout the first two-plus months of the 2014 campaign, the Seattle Seahawks’ defense performed far below last year’s dominating, top-ranked unit’s […]

Brian Hight’s NFL Picks – Week Fourteen

Brief Recap Coming off a “bye” week that saw Oregon Sports News take a break for Thanksgiving, I’ll just briefly say that I continued to make the picks on ESPN’s Pigskin Pick’em, so you can verify the results, and I’ve gone one game under .500 for the past two weeks, getting eight correct in week […]

Fantasy Football Start And Sit – Week Fourteen

RECORD LAST WEEK (Week 12): 14-5 OVERALL: 124-84-3 Pittsburgh at Cincinnati Start: Le’Veon Bell, RB, PIT Cincinnati has the 25th ranked run defense, and Bell has been absolutely on fire the last few weeks.  Ride the hot hand. Sit: Andy Dalton, QB, CIN What happened to the “Red Rifle”?  Coming off what might be his […]

Seattle Seahawks VS. Philadelphia Eagles Drinking Game

Disclaimer: Excessive drinking can make you forget the dangers of riding a sheep like a horse. You’ve been warned. Now for those alcoholics still reading, I propose to you a drinking game. Follow the rules carefully. If you do, all you will have to remember the 4th quarter of the game by will be a […]

Face It 12s – A Future Without Marshawn Lynch Is Coming

There is an underlying saga to this entire Seattle Seahawks season, besides what is happening on the field. That has been the saga of beloved Marshawn Lynch, a.k.a. Beast Mode. If you can honestly tell me what the fate of the Beast in Seattle is, you better be a psychic because it seems no one […]
