    Bengals set offensive line for Week 1 vs Seahawks

    The Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals are set to open their 2019 seasons in two weeks and while our focus has obviously been on what the Seahawks will look like, the Bengals made an important announcement about their offensive line on Sunday: former undrafted free agent Trey Hopkins has won the starting center job over 2018 first round pick Billy Price, while fourth round rookie Michael Jordan has been named the starting left guard. With first round tackle Jonah Williams expected to miss this season, the starting offensive line looks to be Cordy Glenn at left tackle, Jordan and Price at their respective positions, then John Miller at right guard and Bobby Hart at right tackle. But Glenn

    Seahawks Bobby Wagner, Mychal Kendricks bring pressure against Chargers

    Between all the debate about which positions matter and which don't (simplifying for all of our sakes), let us agree on one piece of common ground: sacks matter. It doesn't matter who provides them — it matters that they wreck drives, keep points off the board, and make your fans channel primordial, deep-seated emotions best expressed by grunts. With all eyes on the Seattle Seahawks' depleted DE group this preseason, coaches coaxed some big pressure plays out of the next line of defense in Week 3. Multiple Bobby Wagner blitzes in the first quarter, pushing Tyrod Taylor out of the pocket? Yes, please. Mychal Kendricks getting home, not letting Taylor do his best Russell Wilson maneuvers? Don't

    Seaside Reactions podcast: Seahawks beat Chargers, get mostly good news on players

    This week's reaction comes after Seattle's 23-15 victory of the Chargers in a sandbox. The Seahawks looked great running the football against LA, as they attempt to potentially build a stable of solid backs instead of receivers; think of it as the polar opposite to Gurley-Cooks-Woods-Kupp. This is Lockett-Carson-Penny-Prosise instead. Will it work? Well, it'll certainly work better if the offensive line continues to play as well as it did (for the most part) on Saturday, including if Ethan Pocic is actually an NFL caliber interior lineman. Even if Mike Iupati is ready for Week 1, if Pocic is ready to sub in and play well at 3-5 positions, that changes the outlook significantly, not just for this

    Draft Russell Wilson as the #11 QB... Ahead of Tom Brady and After Carson Wentz

    DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK Draft Russell Wilson as a week-to-week fantasy spot starter in 2019. His 352 projected fantasy points puts him at #11 behind Carson Wentz and ahead of Tom Brady. He has averaged 22.9 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 22 fantasy points. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 96%, he is the #9 most highly owned quarterback. Russell Wilson is expected to come up short of last season's #6 fantasy position rank. These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data.

    Seahawks caught by surprise by retirement of Colts QB Andrew Luck

    CARSON, Calif. — Russell Wilson will always be tied to Andrew Luck as members of the NFL Draft class of 2012. And that made it all that more surprising when Wilson heard Saturday, as he walked onto the field for the Seahawks' preseason game against the Chargers, that Luck was retiring — one of the most surprising developments in recent NFL history. “It's kind of crazy to think about,” said Wilson, who said he was told the news by teammate Duane Brown as they walked back from the locker room to the field prior to Saturday's 23-15 preseason win against the Chargers. Wilson said he got to know Luck through a few events for rookies that season as well as at the Pro Bowl in 2012 — each was named to

    Clayton: What to watch for in Seahawks-Chargers preseason game

    The Seahawks head to Los Angeles to play the Chargers in what used to be known as the “dress rehearsal” preseason game. But this summer, it looks like teams are rehearsing for a concert that isn't going to be seen. More coaches are opting to let their starters sit. The past trend was to take the third preseason game and keep the starters on the field a series or two into the second quarter. Pete Carroll is a coach who likes to follow that plan, but all coaches have to be afraid. Look what happened last night: Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who sat for the first two games, was on the field for only 11 plays and suffered a mid-foot sprain. The Panthers are only cautiously optimistic

    Quiet Seahawks hoping to make noise in NFC West

    SEATTLE — There is an unusual and notable lack of noise surrounding the Seattle Seahawks. The loud personalities of the past are gone. There are no contract disputes. The general buzz around the franchise is at a murmur. There are no outlandish Super Bowl expectations, but there remains a belief Seattle is a good team that should be in the NFC playoff conversation. After years when Seattle was among the loudest teams in the NFL, it's a stark change. "We had so many names that people were paying attention to that were doing so many different things that it's just kind of different now. ... I think a little bit of that, too, is I think the league is sleeping on our team," Seattle linebacker Bobby

    Jim Zorn isn't afraid of new challenges — he relishes them. That's why he's XFL Seattle's new coach and GM

    Jim Zorn had never played football and had no expectations when turning out for the sophomore football team. The only thing he knew was he wouldn't quit. That is what he had done in basketball and baseball as a freshman at Gahr High School in Cerritos, Calif., walking away during the season because he wasn't getting a chance to play. “When I quit, I felt horrible,” Zorn said. “I felt that inside.  I had never played football, but I decided, 'I'm not quitting, I'm going to see it through.' ” More than 50 years later, Zorn is still seeing it through. Zorn, who captured the city's heart as the dashing quarterback for the expansion Seattle Seahawks and later became an NFL head coach, is tasked with

    Ethan Pocic 'ready to go' if Mike Iupati cannot get healthy

    The Seattle Seahawks have a major depth issue on the offensive line. Guards Mike Iupati, Phil Haynes and Jordan Simmons are all battling injuries, while tackles George Fant and Jamarco Jones are on the shelf as well. That created an opportunity for other linemen to step up in their place – an opportunity that former second round pick Ethan Pocic is not letting pass him by. “Ethan has done a great job stepping up with the starters,” coach Pete Carroll commented on Wednesday. “He's done a great job.” However, even though Pocic filled in admirably for Iupati, Carroll still expects the veteran to take over the starting job once he is healthy. “I'm really counting on Mike [Iupati] to come back in,

    Madden 20's Shaquem Griffin Can Make Miraculous No-Handed Catches

    Shaquem Griffin is a professional linebacker in the NFL, playing for the Seattle Seahawks. Shaquem Griffin also doesn't have a left hand. A condition he was born with prevented it from developing fully, and led to an amputation. However, he still competes at the highest level of pro football, and has made it into Madden 20, where he's making some unbelievable catches. With his left hand. Twitter user and parody page Black Adam Schefter noticed this while playing Madden 20 the other day. A pass let loose by Eli Manning gets one-handed by Griffin mid-flight, only it comes down in his left hand. It's a fun little nuance of game design, and it seems like Griffin himself is enjoying it, retweeting

    This means everything- Tight ends Jackson Harris, Wes Saxton chasing their dreams with Seahawks

    RENTON — For one, the call was a dream come true. For the other, it was another chance at keeping the dream alive. Five days before the Seahawks' first preseason game, Seattle signed tight ends Jackson Harris and Wes Saxton to replace the injured Justin Johnson and Tyrone Swoopes. Bright-eyed and eager, Harris is a week into his rookie season and trying to make the most of every moment, while Saxton, a five-year vet, wants to do what he can to continue playing the sport for which he's so passionate. “It's exciting,” Harris said. “You're working and just waiting for that call, and when you get the opportunity, you take advantage of it. I'm just excited to be here. It's an incredible place with

    Once Mr. Irrelevant, Kalan Reed trying to make new name for himself in Seahawks secondary

    The good-natured nickname that came with being the last pick in the 2016 NFL draft — Mr. Irrelevant — never bothered Kalan Reed. The distinction actually brought some unexpected perks: a free trip to Southern California for a banquet and a parade; a trophy (of, yep, a player fumbling a ball); and a year's supply of Skittles, which Reed promptly donated to former teammates at Southern Mississippi. Originally drafted by the Tennessee Titans, Reed is now in his first training camp with the Seahawks. As pick No. 253 in the draft, Reed knew he was going to have an uphill climb to make a name for himself in the NFL — a name besides Mr. Irrelevant, anyway — and it indeed appears he remains a bit of a longshot to win a tight competition as Seattle's nickel cornerback.
