Change is coming to the Clink

"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."

Extinction Level Event

The passing game is alive and well, but a meteor looms heavy in the sky.



This is what gravity looks like.


2013's best deep passers

(This article, like everything I write here and everything I do in my real life, is really only an excuse to talk about Russell Wilson.)

"Top Five-iness" QB rankings through Week 13

If "Top Five-iness" sounds made up, that's because it is, but I made it up and I like it so I'm going to keep talking about it.


Measuring the "Top Five-iness" of NFL quarterbacks

In stupid debates all around the country, stupid NFL fans love to fall back on the trope of the Top 5 QB. "Sure, he's good, but is he top 5?"


Quick addendum to the Darrell Bevell post

You may have read Jason Drake's thought-provoking article on Bevell yesterday. He was nice enough to share his data source with me in the comments and I've spent the better part of my Friday buried...

Join our ESPN Gridiron Challenge group


If you, like me, aren't totally into the Fantasy Football scene, you might really like Gridiron Challenge. All you have to do each week is set a Fantasy roster that fits within a $50M Salary Cap. Each player is given a price tag based on their performance, and the market fluctuates as the season goes on. Right now, the prices are set based on last year's performance, but as the weeks go by the best players will increase in value while underachievers become more affordable.

The price you pay for each player is locked for as long as he's on your roster. So if you get Russell Wilson for $6 million, and by the end of the year he costs $9M because he's setting the world on fire, he still only counts $6M toward your cap each week. You can add/drop players at any time.

Best part is that it only takes about 5 minutes of thought per week, so you can wake up on Sunday morning and tinker with it for a few minutes, then sit back and see how your guys do in the games.

Rep your hood OT thread

We are all connected to Seattle in one way or another, but I thought it would be cool to learn which part of Seattle we all actually consider home.

NFL Sunday Ticket for $100 with Madden 25


This is mostly for out-of-town Gulls, but still a great deal for everyone to be able to watch whatever game they want on Sundays. $100 gets you NFL Sunday Ticket for PC/tablet/smartphone. You also get Madden 25, which, from what I've heard, will make the best beverage coaster your home has ever seen.

Walter Thurmond getting reps in punt return game


"We have a lot of high hopes and high expectations and also in the punt-return game, too. He wants to be part of that thing, too, and will be battling with Golden (Tate) in the preseason." Excited to see this.

Kam Chancellor playing QB in OTAs, completes pass to Richard Sherman


Kam getting those emergency reps in. Keeps it on the zone-read then connects with Richard Sherman. This is glorious.

Kings to Seattle: More Progress


I wanted to get this up so that we don't have to bother the poor Sacramento fans in order to discuss. Here's the latest: "The NBA received an executed Purchase and Sale Agreement for the transfer of a controlling interest in the Sacramento Kings from the Maloof family to an investor group led by Christopher Hansen. The proposed transaction is subject to the approval of the NBA Board of Governors and has been referred to the Board's committee process for review." Sacramento's mayor is still leading the charge to find a local buyer and still plans to meet with the NBA about intervening. There are also rumblings around Larry Bird and Phil Jackson getting involved with the franchise. Rumors, but intriguing ones.

jhmg16, who hopes this is not against the rules

Mike Holmgren gets the boot, Browns sale final


The dude who founded Flying J truck stops is the new owner. Wonder what Mike's next move will be.

New York Times on the Legion of Boom


Not much that's new for us Seahawks fans, but a nice thorough writeup by the NYT is a big deal for ET, Kam, Sherm and Browner.

12th Man Flag flying over Seattle today. Keep an eye out. Sorry for the horrible quality.

NFL Sunday Ticket on PS3


This just went live in the PlayStation store. It's a one-time payment of $299.99, which is steep. On the other hand, it puts Seahawks on my big screen on gameday. Anyone do this last year? Who's taking the plunge with me this year?


(PSA) New Seahawks jerseys won't be available tomorrow, after all

Thank you for your interest in the new Seahawks jerseys. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, not all inventory will be available tomorrow, including our authentic jerseys....

Randy Moss a 49er


One-year deal. Thank goodness for Alex Smith.

"The Super Bowl just ended," Baldwin said. "So those guys have been on the field working this entire time. And they didn’t take any time off, so why would I?"


FirstRowSports shut down by Dept. of Justice


Thought this was relevant since many of you guys rely on these sites to watch live NFL games. Better make your Super Bowl plans accordingly.


A "Thank You" to the Field Gulls staff after the 2011 season

Apart from my unassailable health, timeless good looks, wealthy upbringing and ridiculously supportive parents, I don't think there's anything I take for granted more than the free content...

ESPN's "NFL Playoff Machine" is back up


Awesome tool. I always have a lot of fun with this, and keep it bookmarked during the second half of the season.


CLink on Gameday - What to see, what to do?
