Seahawks receive conditional mid-round pick BREAKING: The Jets have just agreed with Seattle to a trade sending WR Percy Harvin to New York for conditional pick. (Jay Glazer on Twitter) FF Today's Take: This one is a stunner and has fairly far-reaching implications for both teams. By making this move, the Seahawks essentially are scrapping the misdirection part of their offense and likely recommitting themselves to Marshawn Lynch. Doug Baldwin should see his stock increase the most among Seattle wideouts. The Jets now have a dynamic (albeit injury-prone) playmaker opposite...

Seahawks receiver Baldwin: Report about Marshawn Lynch not wanting to board bus is "stupid''

During their media availability today prior to practice, the Seahawks mostly stuck with a theme of wanting to move on from discussion of the Percy Harvin trade. But receiver Doug Baldwin said he was happy to try clear up one thing --- a report that Marshawn Lynch was so unhappy about the trade that he didn't want to board the bus to the airport to fly to St. Louis. "Marshawn, he was in shock,'' Baldwin said. "He went to go ask them about it and then he hopped back on the bus. I know there was a report that he almost didn't get on the bus. That's stupid. There was no hesitation about getting...

That story about Marshawn Lynch pouting over Seahawks’ Percy Harvin trade? Beast Mode’s agent says, ‘bogus’

When news broke Friday that the Seahawks were trading receiver Percy Harvin to the New York Jets, there was no dearth of rumors about Harvin’s inability to fit in Seattle’s locker room. One of the juicier reports was that running back Marshawn Lynch was slow to get on the team bus because he was pouting […]

Marshawn Lynch's agent: Report he wouldn't get on bus after Harvin trade is "absurd''

In the wake of the Percy Harvin trade came one report that Marshawn Lynch didn't want to get on the bus for Seattle's game to St. Louis. Lynch had taken to Twitter after the trade to express surprise that "they got'' Harving. Lynch's agent, Doug Hendrickson, similarly took  to Twitter tonight to say those reports are untrue, and in fact used the word "bogus'' --- the same word the Seahawks themselves used to defend Lynch against what turned out to be a false report of an assault in August. As for Lynch, he has remained silent on it so far, declining to speak to media after the game in St....

What the Percy Harvin trade means for the Seahawks offense

The first thing the Percy Harvin trade does, on the surface, is make this Marshawn Lynch’s offense once again. The Seahawks have adamantly insisted that they haven’t changed their philosophy as a run-first team but getting rid of Harvin ensures it.

Seahawks list LB Bobby Wagner out for Sunday; WR Percy Harvin, RB Marshawn Lynch rest instead of practice

Seahawks list LB Bobby Wagner out for Sunday; WR Percy Harvin, RB Marshawn Lynch rest instead of practice

The Seahawks (3-2) list Bobby Wagner as out for Sunday’s game at St. Louis (1-4) because of his turf-toe injury. Coach Pete Carroll said today Wagner could miss multiple games but that he does not need surgery. K.J. Wright is going to start at middle linebacker Sunday, with Malcolm Smith and Bruce Irvin as outside linebackers. Carroll had already declared tight end Zach Miller (ankle surgery) and center Max Unger out for the Rams game. Wednesday is rest day in the middle of the season for running back Marshawn Lynch. That is what the “NIR” — not injury-related — essentially … ...

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll: “Whenever we’re running the ball, we’re fine”

Huards Chalk Talk: Offenses issues were more than a lack of Lynch

While a lack of Marshawn Lynch was the most obvious problem for Seattles offense on Sunday, Brock Huard breaks down a play that exemplified another issue.

Do the Seahawks have too many weapons and ideas on offense for their own good?

Finishing my game story and notebook last night for today’s News Tribune on the Seahawks’ 30-23 loss to the Cowboys, I dug up this telling statistic on Seattle’s use — and misuse — of Marshawn Lynch since it acquired him from Buffalo in a trade four games into the 2010 season: The Seahawks are now 2-9 when the giving Lynch 10 or fewer rushes in a game. That includes 0-2 this season, Sunday’s second loss in 21 home games for Seattle and his six-carry day last month in a 30-21 loss at … Read more »

NFL Odds, Week 6: Seahawks vs. Cowboys, against the spread

"Russell Wilson is better than [Andrew] Luck. No question." Yeah, I mentioned that in last week's post, Broncos cornerback Chris Harris's assessment of Wilson after Week 3. "We got beat by, as far as I'm concerned this weekend, the best player in the NFL." Washington safety Ryan Clark's assessment of Wilson after Week 5. "That might be the greatest play I've seen Russell Wilson make and that's saying something." Jon Gruden on Monday night after Wilson had magically flipped the ball to Marshawn Lynch on 3rd & 4 with precisely 2:28 on the clock as the ball left his hand. "He [Wilson] reminds...

Official injury report for Friday: Unger doubtful, Chancellor questionable

Seattle's official injury report for the Dallas game is out and confirms much of what coach Pete Carroll told the media earlier (details in the blog post below). Center Max Unger is listed as doubtful with a foot injury and OL Alvin Bailey is also doubtful with an oblique. Safety Kam Chancellor is listed as questionable with a hip. WR Percy Harvin (thigh) and RB Marshawn Lynch are each listed as probable. Lynch sat out Wednesday for his regular weekly rest day, and as such has to be included on the final injury report. Listed as out are two players recovering from surgeries --- TE Zach Miller...
