Scot McLoughan resigns, Jeff Ireland joins FO

This is all pretty old news by now, but Scot McLoughan resigning and Jeff Ireland signing up for the Hawks front office is a pretty major shuffle leading up to the draft, so let's talk about it...

Real Rob Report: (Behind the Scenes) Super Bowl

Michael Robinson's Real Rob Reports brings us some of the best inside look footage we can find, and now his Super Bowl episode is available in full.

Seahawks almost had the worst schedule


As much as we like to gripe about it, the NFL schedule is an enormously complex beast, and easier to get wrong than right.

Hawks leaning against picking up Carp's option


Much to the surprise of no one at all, it is looking like the Seahawks won't pick up James Carpenter's 5th year option.

Progress on Sherman contract


As Richard Sherman is entering the fourth year of his rookie deal he is one of the first players the team will be looking to re-negotiate and extend, along with Earl Thomas

No indication for position switch for Pryor


With Russell Wilson and Tarvaris Jackson solid #1 and #2 QBs, fans have been wondering what role the Seahawks FO envisions for Terrelle Pryor. Well, keep wondering...

NFL awards Compensatory Picks, none for Seahawks

The NFL has awarded the 32 compensatory picks to NFL teams, as expected the Seahawks - who were very active in free agency last season - do not receive any picks.

NFL sets salary cap at $130 million

Per Adam Schefter, the NFL has set the salary cap at $130 million, which is a great help to teams who had less elbow room to work with, like the Hawks

Wake & Beek: Wait, what just happened?

That unreal feeling, waking up with the knowledge your team is the champion. And not just any champion, but the best by a rather significant margin...

Controlling the flats

This is a Super Bowl rich with various fascinating matchups that will help determine the shape of the game. Here is another one: the Broncos short passing game against the Seahawks linebackers (and...

Wake & Beek: A Festivus Miracle


These Seahawks are the real thing, yo.

Wake & Beek: Wake Up and Cheer Up

Coffee and Cigarettes: Seahawks links for Gameday


Should be a fun game.

Seahawks run defense versus the 49ers


An analysis of the performance of the 49ers run offense against the Seahawks run defense, and the dominance of the 49ers OL against the Seahawks front 7.

Why is Richard Sherman so good?


A pretty poor writeup about the excellent of Richard Sherman as a press-man corner, as well as assorted thoughts on other outstanding Seahawks players.

Former Ravens CB Danny Gorrer Signs With Seahawks


Update: Kregg Lumpkin was released to open up a spot on the roster for Gorrer. Also, WR Richardo Lockette and LB Alan Bradford were released from the Practice Squad and LB Korey Toomer and OL Rishaw Johnson were signed.

Maxwell has a "first-degree hamstring kind of thing"


First-degree is the mildest form, so that's not too bad. Okung was close but not quite there yet, should be able to go against the Packers. Carpenter is practicing but probably won't play for a while yet. Rice and Miller are fine.

Russell Okung expected to play Sunday


Golden Tate could practice on Wednesday. Charly Martin is still in the hospital and should miss a couple of weeks. Take the "expected to play" with a grain of salt, PC is notoriously optimistic about injuries.

Evan Moore, Wide Receiver And Tight End


The Seahawks cut TE Kellen Winslow and signed Browns TE Evan Moore to replace him. Readers of the comment section here may recall I was not a fan of the Winslow trade, overstating my case by...

Seahawks release Kellen Winslow, per Adam Schefter


I have no idea of the timing of this move means we still owe the Buccaneers a pick. Perhaps the "final 53" for the conditional pick was for the week 1 roster. It's also possible he re-signs at a lower rate.

Russell Wilson named week 1 starter


Will also start the week 4 preseason game against the Raiders. Pete Carroll: "Russell has shown nothing but that he is a quarterback. He is so prepared, he does not seem like a first year quarterback. This is an extraordinary kid. He just kept knocking us out with what he brought. (His height) is not even a factor. What is a factor is that he is so elusive and shows great sense. I've watched our team respond to him and they've taken to his leadership style." I am pumped. How 'bout you?

Seahawks Cut Terrell Owens


We'll follow cuts as they come in. This one is really unsurprising, to me.

Thursday Night Football: Open Game Thread


Green Bay @ Cincinnati, then Jacksonville @ Baltimore, then Arizona @ Tennessee. Which one will you be watching? Discuss the games here.

Russell Wilson Starting & His Odds of Success


Odds of success? Isn't the starting job his now? Around the League seems to think so, stating it's now "Wilson's job to lose", which...uh....ok? I have to admit, even if I didn't have any other...
