Winning is Fun

Wow.  What a crazy game. What a stressful game. But, what a HUGE win. This team battled the whole way through. They did not give up and came away with a big victory at the end of the day. A few highlights from yesterday’s win:

Russell Wilson had the best game of his career. He threw for 5 TD’s and came up clutch with several 3rd and longs. He also battled through having the flu and, on his birthday, stepped up and played like a star. Big time performance.

Doug Baldwin is so underrated. He has been extremely clutch over the past few years and yesterday proved once again how important he is. His game clinching touchdown was a perfect example. Hardly pedestrian.

DeShawn Shead played very well in his first start in place of Cary Williams. He was tested as much as you possibly can against Big Ben, responded well and made some nice plays. Competition is everything and he stepped up to the challenge.

Having Jeremy Lane back is an amazing story. During the Super Bowl he suffered a torn ACL and a compound wrist fracture. In his first game back he gets a huge interception and almost returns it back for a TD. He is only going to get better.

This was the first game in the Russell Wilson era that the Seahawks have won a game when the defense has given up 25+ points. That’s huge for the offense as a whole and a big step forward. When the defense struggled the offense came through and showed what they can do.

Next week will be another big game against the Vikings. The Seahawks will slow down Adrian Peterson and pressure the heck out of Teddy Bridgewater. The offense will continue to keep rolling and make big plays.

This season is just starting folks, and it’s about to get fun.

12 thoughts on the Seahawks Offseason

1. Re-signing Michael Bennett was Huge. He even took a bit less money to play for the Seahawks, and one of the main reasons was the 12th Man.

2. It’s sad to see Golden Tate leave and play for a different team. He did so much for the Seahawks. But, the Seahawks can’t afford to pay Tate big money. Especially given the fact that the Seahawks are a run first team. If Percy Harvin can stay healthy, this loss should not be a problem next year.

3. If Sidney Rice re-signs, then I think the Seahawks are set at WR. I don’t think they would need to draft a WR. I think the WR’s will have some serious competition come Training Camp. Lots of depth.

4. Henry Melton (Rated the #2 Free Agent at the DT position) is visiting the Seahawks. This would be a huge addition for the defense. Vance Walker DT is also visiting the Seahawks. He started for the Raiders last year.

5. Jermichael Finley would help stretch the defense and would give Russell Wilson a receiving TE. It would be nice to be able to keep Miller. Might have to restructure Zach Miller’s contract for that to happen.

6. We could use a veteran DE to replace Chris Clemons. Maybe Jared Allen. But, don’t forget that Bruce Irvin could be playing a lot of the DE/LEO position.

7. O’Brien Schofield’s contract didn’t work out with the Giants because of a failed physical. It would be great if the Seahawks could bring him back. Good special teams player and can also rush the passer.

8. Re-signing Tavaris Jackson was big. One of the best backup QB’s in the league. If RW ever goes down, Jackson can step up and play without losing too much.

9. Watch for these 12 players to have breakout seasons for the Seahawks next year: Gregg Scruggs, Jordan Hill, Bruce Irvin, DeShawn Shead, Benson Mayowa, Christine Michael, James Carpenter, JR Sweezy, Ricardo Lockette, Taylor Price, Chris Mathews, Michael Bowie

10. Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport know everything about the NFL and Free Agency.

11. It would be nice if we can sign Doug Baldwin long term.

12. In Pete and John we trust. They have a plan that will make sense in a few weeks. I think they will be able to sign a few players for good prices. Players want to play for Pete Carroll and will take a bit less money to get a great opportunity to get a SB ring. Watch for a DT, WR and possibly a DE to get signed in the next couple weeks.

Go Hawks!

Media Day

Well I won’t be at Media Day, but many more reporters from all over the world will be. There will be 17 Seahawks players that have there own podium to answer all sorts of questions. Marshawn Lynch won’t have a podium and is questionable to even show up. Do you think he needs to talk at Media Day? I don’t think so. The NFL can’t force him to do something he doesn’t want to do. Lynch is a team player and never has made his success in Seattle about himself. I encourage you to read Michael Silver’s article titled “Marshawn Lynch’s quiet power behind Seahawks’ Super run.” Here is the link: http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/story/0ap2000000318651/article/marshawn-lynchs-quiet-power-behind-seahawks-super-run

Here is my prediction for the Seahawks that will have there own podium to speak on tomorrow:

Offense: Russell Wilson, Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate, Russell Okung, Max Unger, Michael Robinson, Zach Miller, Derrick Coleman

Defense: Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett, Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Bobby Wagner, Kam Chancellor, Brandon Mebane, Red Bryant

Soak all of this Super Bowl fun in. It’s great to see the Seattle Seahawks achieve so much this season! Maybe one day I will be one of the reporters at Media Day. Go Hawks!

Michael Robinson- An Inspiring Leader

Michael Robinson is a true leader for the Seattle Seahawks and plays with passion and energy every time he steps onto the football field. He has come a long way throughout his football career, and going to the Super Bowl is something that has made him teary eyed and for good reason. After the Seahawks beat the 49ers in the NFC Championship game, Robinson showed his excitement with tears streaming down his face. It is something truly inspiring to see Robinson accomplish so much.mikerob[1]

Michael Robinson actually played quarterback at Penn State. He got drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the 4th round of the 2006 NFL draft and they decided to switch Robinson to running back in his rookie year. He was successful in the position change rushing for 116 yards in his first season. Midway through the 2008 season the 49ers switched Robinson to full back and once again he took the change of position in stride.

Robinson was released by San Francisco at the end of the 2010 preseason. He was signed a couple days later, by his current team the Seattle Seahawks. Robinson has had a huge impact on the Seahawks. He has provided a young team with excellent leadership, and one way you see this leadership in action is his inspiring pre game talks. Fans can see the respect that Robinson has in the locker room and his humor by viewing his show on YouTube called the “Real Rob Report.”

Michael Robinson
Before the 2013 season, Robinson was released by the Seahawks during the final cuts. The reason being, Robinson’s liver and kidneys nearly failed and he had to spend numerous days in the hospital. He lost 30 pounds, dropping from 245 pounds all the way down to 212 pounds. Thankfully Robinson became fully healthy about a month and a half after being cut and the Seahawks were fortunate to be able to sign him again. Seattle Seahawks fans were very excited to have him back and he stepped in right away without missing a beat. He has been a dependable blocker and a big contributor to yet another successful season by Marshawn Lynch.

The Super Bowl is coming up and it’s a huge game for the Seattle Seahawks organization. The Hawks are a young team, but we can count on Michael Robinson to provide inspiring leadership that will lead the Seahawks to success. Robinson has come a long way, especially this season, and winning the Super Bowl would be a dream come true.

Go Hawks!!!

Marshawn Lynch Does An Interview With NFL Japan.

http://www.nfljapan.com/streaming/20140121-4147.html#ooid=M5NGRyajouL-8tgKc6uGUu0M3ro6nkd6

I encourage you to click the link above. Lynch does an amazing interview with NFL Japan. What is it about? Mostly about his love for skittles. And, the reporter has him trying different candy from Japan. Wish he would do more interviews like this. He is one funny dude. And he has been absolutly huge in the Seattle Seahawks playoff run. I can’t wait to see what he does against the Denver Broncos defense.

Go Hawks!!
