Seattle Seahawks – Teamreport

Seahawks cut 2012 fourth-round pick Jaye Howard

We’re over-trying. I love the attitude about it, in a sense, but we’ve got to get smarter.” — Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, commenting on his team leading the league in penalties during the preseason with 34 accepted penalties for 354 yards. ———————————————– NFL Team Report – Seattle Seahawks – STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL The Seahawks still have cuts to pare its roster to the NFL-required 53 players before 6 p.m. ET Saturday. But on Friday night, seven-year veteran Michael Robinson beat the Seahawks to the punch when he tweeted that he did not make the team’s final roster. “Been real #12th Man will always have love for ya,” he tweeted.

Seahawks roster bubble: Chris Harper may not make roster

The headliner of the group is All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman , who came in at No. 8 in our #NFLrank list of defensive players . He didn’t lack for company, either. Every starter in the Seahawks’ secondary ranked among the top 50 (free safety Earl Thomas , cornerback Brandon Browner and strong safety Kam Chancellor ), and four other teammates rated among the best 100 (cornerback Antoine Winfield , linebacker Bobby Wagner and defensive ends Cliff Avril and Chris Clemons ). It’s almost unfair to think the Seahawks are sitting on that much talent. What this means is that Seattle finally is getting its just due for how complete this team really is. Most people who follow the NFL knew the Seahawks were talented and blessed with a young, gifted quarterback in Wilson. Sherman, however, was the primary supplier of their star power on defense. As productive as he was in a breakout season — when he had 64 tackles, eight interceptions and three forced fumbles — he made nearly as much noise with his nonstop bluster.

Seahawks tight end Zach Miller makes welcome early debut

Seattle released Howard before todays 53-man roster deadline, a league source tells PFT. Howard, a defensive lineman from Florida, is a 6-foot-3, 301-pounder who looks the part of a guy who should be ready to step into an NFL defense and make an immediate impact. But he played in just two games as a rookie with Seattle, and now his time there is done. Howard is subject to waivers, and it wouldnt be surprising to see some other team place a claim.

Sign up now! Seahawks roster bubble: Chris Harper may not make roster Travel Deals Louis Bien, SBNation Posted: Thursday, August 29, 2013, 5:29 PM Chris Harper may not be long for the Seattle Seahawks roster. The fourth-round draft pick out of Kansas State may be cut when the Seahawks pare their roster down to 53 players by Saturday’s deadline, according to the Seattle Times , despite what the Times calls “long-range potential.” Seahawks projected 53-man roster Seahawks blog Field Gulls has Harper as one of six receivers making the 53-man roster, despite his inability to separate himself during training camp. Middle round draft picks tend to make it past final cuts coming out of preseason. The Seahawks are relatively deep at wide receiver, however. The Times currently projects Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin , Golden Tate , Jermaine Kearse and Stephen Williams to make the final roster. Percy Harvin is also expected to join the corps if/when he comes off the physically unable to perform list later this season. If Harper is cut and clears waivers, he stands a good chance of being signed to the Seahawks’ practice squad, where he can gain experience before trying out for the team in 2014, or bide his time in case the team needs to call him up to the active roster midseason. Harper has impressive athleticism considering his 6’1, 234-pound frame.

Seahawks pump in Phish song, fans chant ‘Wilson’ Thursday

(LivePhish.com) Russell Wilson is neither an evil king nor from Gamehendge, but he’s become pretty closely associated with the band Phish thanks to Trey Anastasio asking Sidney Rice Authentic Jersey Seahawks fans to chant “WIL-SON” whenever the quarterback is introduced. (Trey also rocked a ‘Hawks shirt during a recent live show .) And to the delight of phootball phans everywhere, the crowd did just that during Thursday’s fourth preseason game. But it wasn’t just the crowd yelling “WIIIIIL-SON” when Russell took the field. If you go back and listen to the broadcast version you can actually hear the Seahawks pumping in the thumping double E-notes to alert the crowd it was time to cheer for their favorite cult hero/quarterback. It’s pretty surreal that this, you know, actually happened. Perhaps there’s a segment of the population that doesn’t care — and there’s almost certainly a large segment that doesn’t get any of this — but the connection between Phish’s jam-band crowd and Seahawks fans seems to be pretty strong.

Seahawks games will have undercover cop patrols

The Seattle Police Department announced that it will be sending undercover officers to Seahawks games this season to keep an eye on the fans. Police received a number of complaints last year regarding fan violence, including an incident involving two off-duty police officers. More Seahawks coverage: Field Gulls Those officers were the ones doing the misbehaving. Two off-duty Bellevue police officers were escorted off of the premises after using profane language against a uniformed officer and stadium workers. That is the type of behavior the Seattle Police Department will be trying to prevent by sending officers to games dressed just like any other fan, beginning with Thursday’s game against the Oakland Raiders . Anybody seen “taking team rivalries too far” with threats and other intimidating measures will be arrested, if necessary. San Francisco Giants fan Brian Stow just returned home in June after two years in a hospital following a brutal beating at Dodgers Stadium. The Seahawks don’t want any similar incidents to occur at CenturyLink Field.

Placard

(USATSI) Veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks in April. On Saturday, he will be a roster casualty, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, and then Winfield will retire. The Seahawks felt comfortable enough with their young physical secondary to move forward without Winfield, who is 36 years old and entering his 15th season. The Bills selected Winfield in the first round of the 1999 NFL Draft . In his career, he has 27 interceptions, 11 fumble recoveries and 7.5 sacks.

Forced into an opening-day start against the Arizona Cardinals, Sweezy struggled. But after working throughout the season, he was back in the starting lineup over incumbent John Moffitt for the last two regular-season games and both playoff contests. Coaches opened up the competition for this spot during training camp, which Sweezy won outright, drawing rave reviews and allowing the team to avoid any obscurity by trading Moffitt to Denver last week.

SI: The Seahawks have the best defense in the NFL

Seattle starting cornerbacks Brandon Browner, left, and Richard Sherman indicate a turnover during the Seahawks

1 defensive ranking: The Seahawks ranked first in the NFL in points allowed in 2012, and fourth in yards allowed. Head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider have put together a young, aggressive defense based on press coverage and speed to the line of scrimmage. Carroll is the real mastermind here, and hes taken the front packages he learned from Monte Kiffin long ago and expanded them into concepts tailored for today. Seattle runs a lot of what looks to be Cover-1 in a four-man front, but that can change pretty quickly. Former defensive coordinator Gus Bradley (and his replacement, Dan Quinn) will run packages that include 3-4 and 5-2 fronts with alternating safeties and single-linebacker sets. That said, this defense wouldnt work without the best cornerback duo in the league.

Seattle Seahawks Roster 2013: Latest Cuts, Depth Charts and Analysis

Hi-res-176414276_crop_650

None of these players are household names, and they essentially needed eye-popping performances in camp and in the preseason to make the team. Based on the depth attributed to the Seahawks, there could be a few cast-offs Marshawn Lynch Grey Jersey that show up on other NFL rosters. However, it seems likely that teams are not going to be clamoring for Seattles leftovers just yet. This is the calm before the storm. Getting to 75 is going to be tough. Reducing the roster to 53 will be brutal, particularly for a talented team like the Seahawks. That is when the controversy really begins. Todd Pheifer covers the Seattle Seahawks for Rant Sports.

Harvin is a heck of a talent and one of the best playmakers in all of football, a YAC (yards after catch) machine and an absolute field-tilter as the game’s best pure kickoff returner. But the Seahawks not only acquired Harvin, they also got his reputation. They snared the moody, unpredictable man who is prone to migraine headaches. And they got the undersized, injury-prone guy who never takes his foot off the gas. The payoff could be huge for Seattle, but the risk of upsetting the apple cart is just as high. Rice has always had big play ability but hasn’t been able to stay healthy save for one season in Minnesota, when he lit up opponents en route to a Pro Bowl berth.

Seattle Seahawks Roster Cuts: The Calm Before the Storm

Things haven’t gone perfectly (Harvin’s injured hip will mean he misses most of the season) but the Seahawks still have monster expectations for 2013, starting with taking down the 49ers for the division crown. Offense: Much like the 49ers, there’s a heightened excitement for what the Seahawks can do on offense in Russell Wilson ‘s second full year of starting under center. And just like the 49ers, the Seahawks might disappoint a little as they remain likely to be a run-oriented team. Look at their first selection in the 2013 NFL Draft ; Seattle snared Texas A&M running back (and captain of the Most Masculine Name Team) Christine Michael in the second round (they traded their first rounder for Harvin) despite already having Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin on the roster. Seahawks’ Rivals: NFC West 49ers @ Seahawks: 9/15 (8:30 p.m. ET) Seahawks @ 49ers: 12/8 (4:25 p.m. ET) The Seahawks led the league in rushing attempts in 2012 with 536 and yet were dead last in passing attempts with 32. By comparison the Patriots, second in rushing attempts with 523, were fourth in passing attempts at 641. People sleep on it because of Wilson’s growth, but the focus of Seattle’s attack in 2013 will be Beast Mode getting the rock and mauling would-be tacklers with his violent running style.

Russell Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks will win Super Bowl XLVIII

And while my 14-year-old became a bit more forgiving of Seattle after Richard Sherman’s return of a blocked David Akers field goal helped him earn a stunning, come-from-behind, half-point victory in his fantasy football championship game three months later, his sarcasm-prone younger brother remains convinced that the Seahawks are Satan’s spawn and that I am their enthusiastic messenger. “Wow, you’re picking the Seahawks ?” he asked upon learning of this column’s topic. “I’m so surprised… We get it. You love them.” Full disclosure: When I was the little dude’s age (11) falling hard for the NFL as a West LA youth in the mid-’70s, my heart belonged to the San Francisco 49ers , the team that represented the city of my birth. That went away as soon as I started covering the then-defending Super Bowl champs for a pair of newspapers from 1989-94, and though I’ve now spent a majority of my life in Northern California, the only teams I truly love either represent the college I attended (and trust me, I obsess over all of Cal’s sports squads) or have one of my kids on the roster (this fall, I’m locked in on my 17-year-old daughter and the defending league champion Blue Devils). So no, it gives me zero pleasure to pick against the Niners, especially considering that they are uniquely positioned to make me look foolish. This is the first time in many, many years that I have gone into an NFL season convinced that the two best teams play in the same division, and given that 49ers owner Jed York rightfully describes the NFC West (which includes the up-and-coming St. Louis Rams and much-improved Arizona Cardinals ) as the “toughest division in professional sports,” nothing about the Seahawks ‘ potential path to promised land will be easy.

NFL preseason 2013: Broncos vs. Seahawks game preview

First Take: Whether Seahawks overhyped

Meet the Seahawks At this time last year, quarterback Russell Wilson was busy lighting up the preseason as he convincingly won the starting job. This time around, it didn’t matter. Wilson didn’t score in the Seahawks win over the Chargers, but both Tarvaris Jackson and Brady Quinn performed quite well. Jackson threw particularly well, connecting on 8 of 9 passes with two touchdowns to boot. Running back Christine Michael , a second-round pick in the 2013 draft, made a statement to be Marshawn Lynch’s backup in the regular season with 16 carries for 89 yards. That early momentum came to a halt, however, as he has been out with back spasms since the weekend, opening the door for Robert Turbin to make his case. Meet the Broncos The Broncos defense was all over the field against the 49ers last week, forcing four turnovers and holding San Francisco to 288 yards. Safety Duke Ihenacho came out of nowhere, notching seven tackles and a forced fumble in one half of play.

Add in Russell Wilson’s natural scrambling ability along with an offensive line that’s returning all five starters, and it’s easy to see why Seattle is primed to return to elite status. Sure, today’s NFL is pass-predicated, but pounding the rock efficiently will never go out of style. Pass-Catchers On paper, the tandem of Sidney Rice and Golden Tate isn’t instantly intimidating, especially for a top-tier NFL team. Somewhat surprisingly though, Rice was given a Top 15 overall grade by ProFootballFocus.com in 2012. His +13.4 rating was higher than the ratings of Julio Jones , Steve Smith and Hakeem Nicks . Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports Fail Mary receiver Golden Tate had a modest but not necessarily pedestrian stat line of 45 catches for 688 yards and seven touchdowns last season. However, according to Jayson Jenks of theSeattle Times , Tate has been the “impressive player in training camp so far, makingbig plays, going up and over cornerbacks to haul in passes down the sideline.” Don’t forget about slot guy Doug Baldwin, either. With Percy Harvin sidelined for most of the season, Rice and Tate will be integral to Wilson’s success under center. When Harvin returns, watch out.

The Seahawks left the AFC for the NFC in 2002, of course.

Bayless, Chris Broussard and Danny Kanell discussed the NFC West in general, including Bayless’ affinity for the Arizona Cardinals , and it’s all there in the video above. Kanell brought a quarterback’s perspective on Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and San Francisco 49ers counterpart Colin Kaepernick . Kanell thinks Kaepernick has more to prove. He thinks Wilson is the better quarterback and explains why in the video above. Bayless sides with Kaepernick, pointing to physical advantages. All in all, there was a lot there for NFC West fans, but no mention of the St.

Then, one can add his mobility and rushing capabilities into the mix. Having nearly 500 rushing yards along with four touchdowns is also pretty special. He deserved his Pro Bowl selectionno doubting that. If any 49er fan wants to point out how great Kaepernick is, he or she would not be able to get very far without mentioning Wilson. Behind Wilson on offense is running back Marshawn Lynch . Like San Francisco, Seattle relies heavily on the running game and Lyncha First-Team All-Pro last yearwill again carry the bulk of the Seahawks’ ground attack. Lynch’s running style, which was once heralded by Washington Post writer Matt Brooks as “jaw dropping and earthquake inducing,” epitomizes the nature of Seattle’s ground attack. His uncanny knack for breaking tackles is part of the reason why he has been able to easilycrest the 1,000-yard mark in each of the last two seasons. Considering just how well San Francisco was able to stop the run last year, Lynch’s 214 rushing yards between the teams’ two matchups is quite impressive.

Seahawks’ Replay Booth: Fake screen acts as de facto play-action

Ibe25nvfeumbzi_medium

One such snap that caught my eye last night came on 2nd and 11 with 10:41 to go in the first quarter – during the Seahawks’ first drive. Seattle lined up in ’11’ personnel – one tight end and one running back – with Doug Baldwin slot left, Stephen Williams on the wing left, Golden Tate out right, with Sean McGrath in-line right. With a 2nd and long situation, the Seahawks run a fake screen pass play that I haven’t really seen them use before, and it worked like a charm. See below – At the snap, the Seahawks pass protect as normal but then release quickly to the right – in-step with Robert Turbin – in the same way you’d see a line move downfield on a screen pass to protect for their running back. This is exactly what Denver’s linebackers see as well – they were likely on the looking for a screen in the down-distance as well – and they bite on it, hard. Wilson hits McGrath on his spot route – you’ll notice McGrath looks back, and while he doesn’t stop moving, he does settle into the zone just vacated by the linebackers. Wilson hits him on his back shoulder and McGrath smoothly reels it in and moves downfield, breaking a tackle browse in the process. Here’s the play from another angle or two: Overall – a crafty play design not unlike play-action, and the Seahawks’ sell it really well. The key to this play is protecting Wilson long enough for him to key in on the linebackers – if you missed the cHawkboard series on quarterback keys I’d watch that and have this play in mind.

8 at San Diego, leaving the door open for Turbin to show why he should remain the Seahawks No. 2 option at running back behind Marshawn Lynch. Seattle coach Pete Carroll made the decision to hold Turbin out in the second half, even though he was itching to get more carries. I wanted to play at least through the third quarter, he said. As Lynchs backup last season, Turbin rushed for 354 yards on 80 carries and also caught 19 passes for 181 yards over 16 games. BRONCOS DE HURT With 9:13 remaining in the opening quarter, Denver defensive end Derek Wolfe went down hard on the turf after a legal cut block by tight end Luke Willson, followed by a drive block by fullback Michael Robinson. Wolfe was taken off the field on a stretcher and loaded into the back of an ambulance. According to the team, Wolfe suffered a cervical spine injury and had movement in all his extremities.

Skip Bayless May Believe Seahawks Are Back In AFC, Doesn’t Think Broncos Can Compete With Patriots

The Seahawks left the AFC for the NFC in 2002, of course. Bayless went on “First Take” and said the AFC reference was a sarcastic comment pointing to overblown expectations for Seattle, as if Seahawks fans thought their team would be good enough to threaten in both conferences, not just its own. Bayless, Chris Broussard and Danny Kanell discussed the NFC West in general, including Bayless’ affinity for the Arizona Cardinals , and it’s all there in the video above. Kanell brought a quarterback’s perspective on Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and San Francisco 49ers counterpart Colin Kaepernick . Kanell thinks Kaepernick has more to prove. He thinks Wilson is the better quarterback and explains why in the video above. Bayless sides with Kaepernick, pointing to physical advantages. All in all, there was a lot there for NFC West fans, but no mention of the St.

Despite their recent success on paper, the Seahawks came up short by two points in the NFL Divisional Championship game againstMatt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons . With the 2013 NFL preseason underway, the Seahawks have some improvements to make, and the preseason is a good time to work toward them. Seattle is a team that is a few improvements away from returning to the Super Bowl. Last season, Seattles defense allowed the fewest points and had a top-five defense that played with tenacity and swagger. The Seahawks have two young ball hawks in cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas, which are just two parts of a great secondary. Great secondaries make it hard for quarterbacks to be successful, but when its coupled with a great pass rush, the combination can make it impossible. The Seahawks only managed a team total of 36 sacks in 2012, which was good enough for 18th in the NFL.

First Take: Whether Seahawks overhyped

Sign up now! Seahawks trade OG John Moffitt to Browns for DE Brian Sanford Travel Deals James Dator, SBNation Posted: Monday, August 19, 2013, 5:42 PM The Seattle Seahawks traded offensive guard John Moffitt to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for defensive end Brian Sanford on Monday — according to CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora . A two-year veteran, Moffitt started six games for Seattle in 2012, while Sanford spent much of last year on the Browns’ practice squad. Seattle had a need at defensive end with Bruce Irvin facing suspension, but it’s a curious trade by the Seahawks. There’s no indication Sanford would have made it through cuts, and it’s hard to imagine a line for his services with three years and only five tackles to his name. More: More on the Seahawks at Field Gulls Read about the Browns at Dawgs by Nature Cleveland adds a much-needed interior offensive lineman. Left guard Jason Pinkston suffered a high ankle sprain in last week’s preseason game, and is expected to miss four weeks. The addition of Moffit allows for the team to retain continuity on their offensive line, and he could ultimately be an upgrade over the 2011 fifth-round pick.

Seattle Seahawks

He deserved his Pro Bowl selectionno doubting that. If any 49er fan wants to point out how great Kaepernick is, he or she would not be able to get very far without mentioning Wilson. Behind Wilson on offense is running back Marshawn Lynch . Like San Francisco, Seattle relies heavily on the running game and Lyncha First-Team All-Pro last yearwill again carry the bulk of the Seahawks’ ground attack. Lynch’s running style, which was once heralded by Washington Post writer Matt Brooks as “jaw dropping and earthquake inducing,” epitomizes the nature of Seattle’s ground attack. His uncanny knack for breaking tackles is part of the reason why he has been able to easilycrest the 1,000-yard mark in each of the last two seasons. Considering just how well San Francisco was able to stop the run last year, Lynch’s 214 rushing yards between the teams’ two matchups is quite impressive. It is no wonder why Seattle signed him to a four-year, $31 million contract before the 2012 season. Of course all of that would not be possible without an effective offensive line. Lead by Pro Bowlers Russell Okung and Max Unger, the offensive line should be just as effective as it was last year. I do have some questions and concernswhich shall be described laterbut the line needs to be viewed as a strength heading forward. Unger elaborated on the recent success by saying via Oregon Live: You have to score points, you have to win games in order to get a lot of recognition. Especially on the [offensive] line you have to keep your quarterback clean, you have to do that kind of stuff and the benefit of that is people recognize our quarterback is not getting touched, we’re running the ball a lot something good must be happening. It is a simple statement from Unger yet his points are critical to ensure continued success.

Moffitt was battling for the starting right guard with converted defensive lineman J.R. Sweezy. However, comments from Pete Carroll last week seemed to hint that Sweezy was ahead in the competition. Sweezy also started against Denver last week. Johns been battling, Carroll said. Hes had a good chance to compete. Hes been mixing time with Sweezy with the 1s, and its a competition thats ongoing. Sweeezys done really well. J.R.s well ahead of where he was a year ago, and hes trying to hold him off.
