No Style Points Needed: Seahawks Find A way to win, move back to .500

A win is a win. Fortunately for Seattle, there are no style points in the NFL. The Seahawks who have been at the losing end of many close games this year, found a way to win in Dallas, albeit not in the most appealing, fan base soothing fashion. This game was the perfect representation of […]

The Cincinnati Collapse: Blown lead leaves Seattle Searching for answers at 2-3

If I were to tell you before the game that Thomas Rawls would rush for 160+ yards, the offense would produce 24 points, defense would generate two turnovers including one for a score, and held a seventeen point lead in the fourth quarter what would you have thought? I’m guessing many of you would have predicted […]

Winning the Wright Way? Controversial Call Overshadows Seahawks Win

Controversy on a Monday Night in Seattle? Seems to be the norm for the Seahawks in recent years. There is something about that North end zone on Monday Nights that just attracts controversy. First the “Fail-Mary” and now “BatGate”,  and oddly enough the refs and Golden Tate have been a part of both.  What is […]

Kicking into Gear: Seattle shows promise, improvement in Shutout win

There was good, there was bad, and in the end there were still questions. That seemed to be the best synopsis of the Seahawks’ Home opener yesterday. The good?  Defense was stifling, special Teams was special, and Jimmy was Jimmy. The bad? Slow Start on offense, Red Zone still an issue,  4 sacks for the […]

SEAHAWKS- Taking Care One Of Their Own

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………

These Seattle Seahawks Are Writing Their Redemption Song

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 […]
