what the national media are saying about the seahawks’ super bowl odds this seas


many experts are split on the seahawks, but there is no shortage of national media making the seahawks their super bowl pick. here's what they're saying.bob condotta: 12-4“a healthier seahawks team should have another good run it especially with a schedule that shapes up as one of the more forgiving in the nfl this year and in the team’s recent history. seattle should be able to fend off arizona to win a second straight division title and fourth in the last five years, and earn a bye in the first weekend of the playoffs. all of that assumes the offensive line improves just enough for russell wilson to stay healthier and that the defense avoids some of the significant injuries it suffered a year ago.”stefanie loh: 13-3“the seahawks should earn home-field advantage, which will allow them to






seahawks offensive line coach tom cable: ‘i’m the most excited coach on the staf


seahawks offensive line coach tom cable says he expects what was a beleaguered unit last year will be much improved in 2017.maybe tom cable is just trying to support an offensive line he knows as well as anyone has mostly been the subject of ridicule the last few years and remains the seahawks’ biggest question mark heading into a new season.maybe it’s just the usual june optimism that colors every nfl team as the summer vacation — the longest break anyone in the league ever gets — beckons.or maybe cable just really means it when he says the seahawks’ offensive line is markedly better now than it was a year ago at this time — cable used the phrase “night and day’’ in an interview with kjr-am last month.friday, when he met the media following the seahawks’ final workout of otas (organized t

first reaction: the seahawks draft dt malik mcdowell in the second round


a few thoughts on the seahawks' second-round pick, malik mcdowell, a defensive tackle from michigan state.first reaction: this pick makes sense. after all the trading down — three times before they ever made a pick! — the seahawks landed a player who improves their depth along the defensive line, a position that has been top heavy the last couple seasons.how he fits: that’s the interesting part. mcdowell is listed as a defensive tackle, and that’s what he played at michigan state. it’s very possible that’s what he plays with the seahawks as well (similar to 6-foot-7 tony mcdaniel). but the seahawks could also develop him in the red bryant model, a big, tall run-stuffing defensive end.looking ahead: the seahawks starting defensive tackles are projected to be jarran reed and ahtyba rubin, wh

sports world reacts to death of seahawks legend cortez kennedy


former teammates, fellow hall of famers and many more took to twitter on tuesday in reaction to the death of seahawks legend cortez kennedy.seattle lost a legend tuesday. cortez kennedy, the seahawks’ hall of fame defensive tackle, has died at age 48.kennedy wreaked havoc on nfl quarterbacks in his 11-year career with the seahawks, quickly earning a reputation as one of the league’s most feared defensive tackles. in an otherwise forgettable decade in seahawks history, it was hard to ignore the impact kennedy had both in seattle and for the sport.the seahawks went 2-14 in 1992, and kennedy never won a playoff game in his career. but, as kennedy said on the eve of his hall of fame induction ceremony, “i loved playing for the seahawks, you know. i didn’t want to go anywhere else.”kennedy’s lo

the seahawks signed former bucs safety bradley mcdougald to a one-year contract.the seahawks added some much needed depth on wednesday by signing veteran safety bradley mcdougald. according to the nfl network’s ian rapoport, the seahawks signed mcdougald to a one-year, $2 million contract.mcdougald, 26, started the last two years at free safety for the tampa bay buccaneers, but he is also capable of playing strong safety. right away, he gives the seahawks depth behind earl thomas, who is rehabbing after surgery,  and kam chancellor, who missed four games last season.both backup safeties from last season, steven terrell and kelcie mccray, are unrestricted free agents. terrell started in place of thomas last season and became a liability, especially in trying to limit big plays. mccray was a

first reaction: seahawks select 6 players in second and third rounds of nfl draf


first reaction: this feels like a pretty classic seahawks’ pick in that a lot of draft analysts and magazines had pocic as a mid-round pick (lindy’s offered a comparison: seahawks center justin britt. funny enough, pocic made the same comparison). pocic is 6-foot-6, the same height as britt. the seahawks needed to address their offensive line in some way for no other reason than it wasn’t very good last season. so if nothing else, they accomplished that.how he fits: that’s the interesting question and one we’ll know more about after general manager john schneider and coach pete carroll talk after the draft ends on friday. but what we know is this: pocic is versatile. he played mostly at center for lsu but also saw time at guard and tackle. we also know the seahawks love versatility. it’s l






first reaction: the seahawks draft safety mike tyson in the sixth round


the seahawks drafted another safety, this one with a famous name: mike tyson, a safety from cincinnati.the seahawks drafted cincinnati safety mike tyson in the sixth round on saturday.first reaction: at first blush, it looks like the seahawks added another safety this draft. but tyson played a hybrid safety/corner position in college, and he said he often covered receivers. so he’s probably more of a defensive back than a safety.how he fits: in fact, tyson said the seahawks told him he would start as a cornerback. he played outside cornerback, nickel corner and safety in college, and as with most guys the seahawks draft, that versatility is probably one of the reasons they drafted him. the seahawks need depth in the defensive backfield, period, and they need to develop the next crop of you

this wasn't just the seahawks' worst home loss of the year — it was the second-worst defeat at home in team history.this was billed as the biggest game of the year for the seahawks, with the nfc west title and their playoff hopes hanging in the balance.it turned out to be seattle’s biggest loss of the year, as the los angeles rams thumped them 42-7 to hand the seahawks their worst loss at home since week 1 of the 1997 season, when the jets beat them 41-3. this also marked the first time since 2010 that seattle has allowed 40 points in a game.what went wrong? everything. here are three impressions from the game.1. the seahawks are no longer the kings of the nfc westwith the win, the los angeles rams improved to 10-4, and are all but guaranteed to clinch the nfc west division title.   conseq
