Seattle Seahawks position rank: defense edition

Last week I ranked the Seattle Seahawks by offensive position. This week I take a look at the defense. 1. Safety I decided to split up the Legion of Boom here. While the cohesive unit is better than the sum of its parts, I figured I’d look at corner and safety positions separately.

Golden Boy: Seahawks star Russell Wilson gets owned on Twitter by comic artist

I am an enormous fan and supporter of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson on the field. In fact, I think he has a great chance to win the NFL’s MVP award next season. Off the field? That’s another matter. While Wilson’s clean cut style is certainly preferable to a violent psycho like Greg Hardy or Aaron Hernandez, his golden boy, pure and holy act is kind of boring...

Pete Carroll says Deflategate investigation 'didn't affect anything'

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was on the losing end of one of the closest Super Bowls of all time.  Now that the Patriots have been punished by the league, it is natural to wonder whether Carroll holds any animosity towards the Patriots or the NFL.
