Seahawks-49ers: The Friday Rundown, Week 15

Seahawks-49ers: The Friday Rundown, Week 15

For the second time in three weeks, the Seattle Seahawks will take on their old rival at the top of the NFC West, the San Francisco 49ers. Despite a win in Week 14, the 49ers remain in the driver’s seat for the first pick in the draft. The Seahawks, meanwhile, picked up another huge victory on Monday night, essentially cementing their place as the conference’s fifth seed. This week’s pre-game column will be a bit shorter, as the game comes on the heels of the first matchup between these two teams. You can find a full primer on San Francisco’s offense and defense here, and we’ll...

Seahawks sign Ellerbee to active roster, Thomas and Stringfellow to practice squad

Seahawks sign Ellerbee to active roster, Thomas and Stringfellow to practice squad

The Seattle Seahawks quickly replaced Mychal Kendricks on the active roster, bringing back Emmanuel Ellerbee, who was originally waived upon Kendricks’ reinstatement. Kendricks’ season ended officially on Wednesday, as he was placed on injured reserve. In addition to Ellerbee’s signing, they added two familiar names to their practice squad on Wednesday, signing cornerback Simeon Thomas and wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow to the 10-man unit. Thomas was originally signed to the team prior to Week 1, spending the entire year between the active roster and practice squad, before...

It wasn’t always pretty, but the Seattle Seahawks got it done on Monday Night Football, topping the Vikings with a generous scoreline of 21-7. It was a hideous showing from both offenses for the better part of the game, but the Seahawks got the win they needed to firmly place themselves as the NFC’s fifth seed. Check out the full snap counts from Seattle’s victory below before we hit on points of interest: Mychal Kendricks reclaims his spot upon returning Returning from an eight game suspension on Monday night, Kendricks was plugged back...

George Fant finally hauls in a pass as an eligible receiver

George Fant finally hauls in a pass as an eligible receiver

After over 160 snaps in 2018, George Fant finally got to put his soft hands to use. Lining up to the right of Germain Ifedi, Fant leaked out into the flat as Russell Wilson took a three step drop. Fant, with green grass in front of him, adjusted to the football well, before turning up field and gaining a handful of yards after the catch. And George Fant caught a pass!!!!! #Seahawks pic.twitter.com/9G7UA22Bo1— Samuel Gold (@SamuelRGold) December 11, 2018 Though he could’ve done better finishing his run, Fant turned his first career target into nine yards. It was only a matter of...

Bobby Wagner leaps over line to block Vikings FG, can he do that?

Bobby Wagner leaps over line to block Vikings FG, can he do that?

The Minnesota Vikings lined up for a 47-yard field goal with just under six minutes to play on Monday night, attempting to cut the Seattle Seahawks lead to three points. Bobby Wagner had other plans. In a throwback to both his own performance on Sunday Night Football against the Cardinals in 2016, and Kam Chancellor against the Panthers in 2015, Wagner leaped over Minnesota’s line, blocking Dan Bailey’s attempt. Blocked field goal by Bobby Wagner... Here's the rule:Running forward and leaping across the LOS in an obvious attempt to block a kick UNLESS the leaping player was in a...

Seahawks-Vikings: The Friday Rundown, Week 14

Seahawks-Vikings: The Friday Rundown, Week 14

The Seattle Seahawks picked up a tremendous amount of ground in the playoff race over the last few weeks, knocking off fellow contenders in the Panthers and Packers along the way. Now, they take on their biggest rival for the top wildcard spot in the Minnesota Vikings, at home. Week 13 saw the Seahawks swat aside the 49ers in an easy 43-16 victory, highlighted by Bobby Wagner doing everything. The Vikings, meanwhile, are coming off a tight loss in New England, which saw the NFL’s most unlikely rivalry unfold. Adam Thielen and Bill Belichick jawing at eachother. Seems like Bill tells...

Bobby Wagner is playing the best football of his career in 2018

Bobby Wagner is playing the best football of his career in 2018

Last season, Bobby Wagner took his game to another level, becoming a legitimate Defensive Player of the Year candidate in a league dominated by quick twitch edge rushers and disruptive forces inside. Though he didn’t end up winning the award, he seemed to finally settle the debate surrounding the best off-ball linebacker in the NFL. The second level belonged, and still belongs, to Bobby Wagner. For an encore in 2018, Wagner is playing even better. His game dropped off a bit towards the end of last season, as injuries slowed him down. He hasn’t faced such a problem in 2018 and is...

Snap Reactions: Notes on the Seahawks’ snap counts from Sunday’s win over the 49ers

Snap Reactions: Notes on the Seahawks’ snap counts from Sunday’s win over the 49ers

In Richard Sherman’s return to Seattle, the Seahawks were victorious, defeating Sherman’s 49ers with ease, 43-16. The win pushes Seattle to 7-5 and in great position for the NFC’s top wildcard spot. San Francisco, meanwhile, continues down the path to the top pick, as they sit 2-10. In an NFL Sunday which saw several stars go down in the early games, the Seahawks got out of Week 13 relatively healthy. D.J. Fluker left with a hamstring injury that seems likely to keep him out at least in the short-term, while Chris Carson suffered a dislocated finger. Check out the full snap counts...

Bobby Wagner sets Seahawks team record with 98-yard pick-six

Bobby Wagner sets Seahawks team record with 98-yard pick-six

Down three touchdowns with under five minutes to go, the San Francisco 49ers had put together a respectable drive. However, on a 3rd and 3 from Seattle’s five-yard line, Bobby Wagner ended that drive, intercepting Nick Mullens’ pass and taking it back 98 yards for a touchdown. Wagner’s touchdown was the exclamation mark on a fantastic day for the consistently great linebacker. Prior to the interception, Wagner had already collected a sack, forced fumble and fumble recovery. The 98-yard return set a new team record for longest touchdown return, passing Brandon Browner’s 94-yard...

Watch: Seahawks wide receivers recreate Richard Sherman’s tip in NFC Championship Game

Watch: Seahawks wide receivers recreate Richard Sherman’s tip in NFC Championship Game

The Seattle Seahawks’ wide receiver corps have garnered attention throughout the year for their creative celebrations, and they took it to another level during Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. After Jaron Brown opened the scoring for the Seahawks with just over a minute left in the first quarter, Brown, David Moore, Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin reenacted Sherman’s famous, conference-winning deflection in the same corner of the end zone. In an unfair casting decision, Brown played the role of the interception-throwing Colin Kaepernick. Lockett was the sorry receiver...

Seahawks-49ers: The Friday Rundown, Week 13

The Seattle Seahawks will begin the final month of the regular season with their first matchup against the 49ers in 2018. Originally set for Sunday Night Football, Seattle and San Francisco were flexed out following Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury and the Seahawks stumbling out of the gate. Instead, Sunday afternoon will see Seattle continue their push for a wildcard spot in a meaningless game for the 2-9 49ers. Though San Francisco again finds themselves jostling for draft position rather than a playoff spot, Week 13 means an incredible amount to at least one man—Seahawks legend Richard...

Michael Dickson named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month

Michael Dickson named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month

Following a “big balls” performance against the Detroit Lions in Week 8, Seattle Seahawks rookie Michael Dickson was awarded the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors. The Australian phenom has now added another award to his rookie campaign, being named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month for November. Dickson is the first punter to be given the award in 2018, joining five kickers as recipients this season (AFC and NFC). It’s the latest mark in what has already been an impressive rookie season, and there is likely more to come. As of Week 12, Dickson was leading all NFC...

Sebastian Janikowski wins NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors

Sebastian Janikowski wins NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors

For the third time this season, a Seattle Seahawk has taken home an NFC player of the week award. Sebastian Janikowski follows Frank Clark (Week 6) and Michael Dickson (Week 8) as Seahawks to win the honors in 2018, after a three field goal performance in Seattle’s win over the Carolina Panthers. It was a relatively easy performance from Janikowski, who at his peak, had perhaps the strongest leg the league’s ever seen. The 40-year-old went 3/3 in the Seahawks’ win, connecting from 33, 30 and 31 yards, the last of which was a last-second winner. Janikowski also hit all three extra...

Seahawks waive WR Keenan Reynolds, will activate J.D. McKissic from injured reserve

The Seattle Seahawks look set to get a boost to their offense ahead of their first matchup against the 49ers in 2018. Doug Hendrickson, agent to Seahawks running back J.D. McKissic, hinted at McKissic’s pending addition to the active roster on Tuesday night. Let’s go @JdMckissic boom! @Seahawks— Doug Hendrickson (@DHendrickson41) November 28, 2018 McKissic is in his second week of practice with the team, after beginning the year on injured reserve with a Jones’ fracture in his foot. Seattle would have had another full week before having to make a decision, but it appears the...

Snap Reactions: Notes on the Seahawks’ snap counts from Week 12 win over the Panthers

The Seattle Seahawks picked up a second consecutive win on Sunday, taking down fellow NFC wildcard contenders in the Carolina Panthers. The 30-27 win came down to the last second, and to get to that point, the Seahawks had to rely on heroics from Russell Wilson. In Seattle’s biggest win of the season, their defense was gashed and they attempted to combat it in interesting ways. More on that and more below, underneath the team’s full snap counts: Doug Baldwin battles through injury Baldwin, finally over the knee issues that had plagued him all season,...
