Jon Ryan has a message for the Seahawks brass, and I love it

When the Seahawks drafted a punter in the fifth round, Jon Ryan took it as a message. Now he’s delivered his own to the Seattle office. It can’t ever be easy to see your team draft a player at your position. That goes double when there’s typically just one player on the roster with your […] Jon Ryan has a message for the Seahawks brass, and I love it - 12th Man Rising - 12th Man Rising - A Seattle Seahawks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

K.J. Wright does things the Seahawks way – the right way

With all the angst over contracts, it’s a good time to point out one Seahawks player who’s still on the job. Actually, K.J. Wright is going far beyond that. Sorry I can’t bring you the news that Earl Thomas stopped his contract holdout. It may be a few months before we can write that story. But […] K.J.

Competition heats up for Seahawks backup quarterback role

The backup quarterback role is incredibly important considering no one ever wants to see them play. Here’s how the Seahawks situation is shaping up. Technically I suppose that isn’t true. I’m sure all 12s would be happy to see the Seahawks backup quarterback come into a Seattle blowout midway through the fourth quarter. It’s not […] Competition heats up for Seahawks backup quarterback role - 12th Man Rising - 12th Man Rising - A Seattle Seahawks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Seahawks and their celebrity dopplegangers, because why not?

The Seahawks have six weeks left before training camp starts. Some Seattle players might turn into their spirit humans. This is who some Seahawks might be. You know how famous people can be, yeah? They may not like to be recognized. Seahawks players are the same way.

Not all former Seahawks are dissing the team. Stop already.

Despite some headlines around the interwebs, not all former Seahawks are down on the team. Even some of those headlines are questionable. I’ll admit it, I’m an optimist. I’m not a tenth Dan black belt optimist; we all know only Pete Carroll and Nelson Mandela have achieved that rank. But I’m working on it. In […] Not all former Seahawks are dissing the team.

If Seahawks were in World Cup they would most be like…

There are 32 NFL teams and 32 teams in the World Cup. Coincidence? No? Which country do the Seahawks and other teams resemble? People in Seattle love their soccer. See what the Sounders draw, for instance. But if the Seahawks were a soccer team in the World Cup, which team would they most resemble?

Seahawks chances versus Cowboys in week 3 just got a big lift

The Seahawks start with more road games than home. A winning record through the first four weeks would be massive. And now David Irving is suspended for the Cowboys. Again. The Seahawks start with three of their first four games away from CenturyLink Field. For a “retooling” team, a winning record early could help confidence.

Seahawks offseason is officially done but was it a good one?

The Seahawks finished OTAs on Thursday. Pete Carroll is almost always positive but should he be based on offseason events? Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is ever the optimist. And that is one reason, myself included, that many 12s really like the coach. Carroll is team-first and doesn’t like to call out his players.

Seahawks need Bradley McDougald to be a leader in 2018

The Seahawks could conceivably be without Earl Thomas. And probably Kam Chancellor. 2018 needs to be the year Bradley McDougald is great. Seahawks fans, are you ready for no Earl Thomas and no Kam Chancellor? You might want to be. And to be honest, I am a fan too, of course, and I want both […] Seahawks need Bradley McDougald to be a leader in 2018 - 12th Man Rising - 12th Man Rising - A Seattle Seahawks Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Seahawks starting running back won’t be based on contract, but production

Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny may battle for the Seahawks running back job all summer. One thing that won’t matter is the size of anyone’s contract. There’s been quite a bit of talk about last year’s “starting” running back Chris Carson. I used quotes because the man didn’t play past the first of October.

Did Seahawks bring in Ryan Grigson for a big reason?

The Seahawks already have a good front office. John Schneider may have just gotten a lot of help with Seattle’s hire of Ryan Grigson, though. The Seahawks announced the hire of Ryan Grigson on Wednesday. Grigson is a former general manager with the Indianapolis Colts.

Eric Reid needs the Seahawks and they need him, especially now

Eric Reid is a really good safety, and the Seahawks need him as much as he needs them. Especially with Earl Thomas holding out. I’m sure it comes as a deep shock that the status of the Seahawks safeties is a bit unsettled.

Earl Thomas announced today he will sit out the Seahawks minicamp this week. He may sit out a lot longer, and Seattle better be ready for that.

The Earl Thomas saga may never end for the Seahawks

Every time you think you can relax, new rumors about Earl Thomas erupt. This time the source is far too trustworthy to ignore. We all thought we could relax a bit about Earl Thomas.

Seahawks may get a big year from receiver Jaron Brown

The Seahawks needed to add a bigger receiver this offseason. Jaron Brown has never had huge statistics. But maybe 2018 will be his breakout season. The Seahawks lost Jimmy Graham this offseason to the Green Bay Packers. With him leaving, Seattle lost a big target in the red zone.
