What’s Next? We Are Just Getting Warmed Up

  “We are just getting warmed up” -Pete Carroll. Those were the ominous words spoken by championship coach and current/future Seattle legend Pete Carroll at the championship celebration when he addressed the thousands of crazed 12th men and women. He knows what we know, what other NFL teams and every football fan is saying secretly behind closed doors (yes, I read other teams message boards sometimes), the Seattle Seahawks are […]

The 5 Biggest Trainwrecks in Seahawk History

Now that we’ve gone and won the Superbowl, we can all laugh at the terrible things that have happened to us in hindsight. The pain of miseries past seems to have healed over time, and with success brings a certain sense of imperviousness…you want to talk about the Seahawks dismal history?

Super Bowl Matchup-a Toxic Explosion

No, I’m not referring to the masses of fans that will be running to the bathroom after consuming inordinate amounts of bean dip, I’m talking about a key measure to look for in determining the winner of the Superbowl. With all the craziness surrounding one Richard Sherman over a fairly innocuous post game interview, there has been little talked about the rest of the team, and a certain big game […]
