With the exception of ESPN being at one day of training camp and Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch’s brief training camp holdout the media hasn’t given much attention to the defending Super Bowl champs and that’s just how the 2014 Seattle Seahawks like it. On the shores of Lake Washington in their beautiful training facilities at […]

May 29th, 2014- Now that OTA’s have started for the reigning Super Bowl Champs it’s time to breakdown the newcomers for the Seattle Seahawks as well as the rest of the NFC West. As with many teams but especially for the Seahawks the draft plays a intrical part in building a championship roster. Now that […]
The Seattle Seahawks marched into New Jersey and beat one of the best offenses and one of the best quarterbacks in history by 35 points in Super Bowl XLVIII. 43-8. It was complete domination in every aspect of the game. After 72 hours to celebrate and have one crazy parade, it was time to do […]
Garrett Scott, the offensive tackle selected in the 6th round (#199 overall) was waived today by the Seattle Seahawks with the “non-football illness” designation. It has been reported that when Scott took his physical last week, a rare heart condition was detected that will not allow him to play football in the near future. Scott […]
John Schneider knows…put that on a T-Shirt, Nike! John Schneider, General Manager of the Seattle Seahawks, knows how to build a championship franchise.
May 5th 2014- As the picture states the biggest non game spectacle for the NFL is almost here, the NFL Draft. For many of the 32 teams the draft is way to get a player that already proven themselves in the college game and in their minds ready to jump to the next […]
Earl Thomas (above) signing the largest contract for a safety in NFL history which will keep him in Seattle through the 2019 season.
April 29th, 2014- Today the national sports world got its justice when NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced that LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling would be banned for life from the NBA and also pay a $2.5 million dollar fine as a result of his racist comments this past weekend, however there was a much better news conference that took place approximately 11:27 am at the VMAC in Renton, WA when Earl Thomas (ET) accompanied by GM, John Schneider and Coach Pete Carroll stepped to the podium. It was at that moment that us fans (the 12th’s) knew that the rumor that ET had signed a 4 year contract extension that would make him the highest paid safety in NFL history (4 years, $40 million with $27.75 million guaranteed) had become a reality.
ET thanked everyone from top to bottom: Owner- Paul Allen, John Schneider, Pete Carroll, his secondary coaches, his teammates (Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman were present), his family, the 12th man and even the cooks at the VMAC. “This is family to me. I love everybody in this organization. It’s not about me, it’s about the people that helped me along the way too. This is where I grew up as football player. I’m excited to keep this thing going.”
You would have never guessed that ET was coming off his first Super Bowl win. He seems so focused on what more he wants to accomplish with the Seahawks. He wants to be the best at his craft and remains 100% focused at whatever task is at hand. His leadership, competitiveness, work ethic, focus, being the ultimate team mate, and his work within the community all embodies what Pete and John’s program is all about.
Resigning ET to a 4 year extension HAD to be done especially for the most part a quiet off season. Chris Clemons, Red Bryant, Walter Thurmmond are some of the pieces from the defense that have departed but ET was the key and also the heart and soul of LOB (Legion of Boom). His motor that ranges from sideline to sideline (which Pete Carroll raved about during the press conference) contributed to the Seahawks having the number one defense in the league last year and (now that they have him locked up) many years to come. By rewarding ET showed us fans that the front office is willing to keep the core intact and reward him for what he’s worth not only to the team but also what he’s worth in the market.
Thats one down and 2 to go. There should be another press conference coming shortly, this next one should be pretty entertaining, stay tuned………

Unless you’re apart of the Seattle Seahawks organization this Super Bowl did not go as expected.

I have watched football and followed the Seahawks literally as long as I can remember. I have seen thousands of teams play on multiple levels year after year and find myself a hard candidate to be surprised by much anymore. That said, there are teams that come about every so often that catch my attention […]
