  • As DeflateGate video leaks, Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Seahawk's Richard Sherman feud

    PHOENIX — The New England Patriots owner and Seattle Seahawks cornerback were trading insults while the NFL was reportedly reviewing video of a Patriots employee going into the bathroom with a bag of footballs. Just when you thought Super Bowl Media Day couldn’t get any more bizarre... Thanks to DeflateGate, though, there seems to be no limit to this theater of the absurd, which took yet another twist as the Patriots and Seahawks met a mass of reporters at the U.S. Airways Center on Tuesday. The backdrop was a report that the NFL had video of a Patriots locker room...

    BOSTON (CBS) — You may have noticed that Tom Brady didn’t look himself at Tuesday’s Media Day. No, it wasn’t his bed head. And it wasn’t from a lack of sleep thanks to an early morning fire alarm at the team’s hotel. As he prepares for the biggest game of the season, the Patriots quarterback is battling a cold. And if you thought he looked rough on Tuesday, he looked a bit worse on Wednesday as he addressed the media at the team hotel in Chandler, Arizona. “It’s been lingering,” Brady told reporters as he held court for nearly 45...

  • Seahawks rally stuns Packers 28-22 in OT for NFC title

    01/18/2015 4:51:52 PM PST · by djf · 131 replies
    Never doubt the resilience of the Seattle Seahawks. Plagued by turnovers and outplayed much of Sunday by Green Bay, the Seahawks staged an improbable comeback and beat the Packers 28-22 in overtime. Russell Wilson, who struggled until the final minutes, hit Jermaine Kearse for a 35-yard touchdown 3:19 into the extra period on the only possession. The Seahawks became the first defending champion to make the Super Bowl in 10 years, and will play the winner of the AFC title game between Indianapolis and New England. How they got there was stunning.

    Dignitas News Service ^ | January 18, 2015 | Paul M Winters
    In an emotion filled interview at the conclusion of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson perfectly reflected the powerful optimism that faith in God brings.  For a young man headed to his second Super Bowl and on top of the NFL in only his third season, he also displayed the refreshing humility of a true leader of men and follower of Christ. His humble optimism is a key component to a faith in God which is often derided or dismissed by the non-believer, and far too often forgotten or taken for granted by the believer. For Russell Wilson and entire Seattle Seahawks team, much...

    As the reasons behind the Seahawks’ decision to trade Percy Harvin are continually analyzed, more information about the dynamics of the team’s locker room are being reported. In the latest report, it is suggested that there was a divide in the locker room among Seahawks supporting Russell Wilson and players who supported Harvin. The report says that as the chasm grew, the Seahawks decided they had to trade Harvin before things became more fractured. Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, who explores the trade and locker room dynamic in Seattle, gives several reasons why some players have issues with Wilson, and he...

"Can't go wrong with God," Muema said. Muema spoke Sunday in a phone interview from the Indianapolis International Airport. He was set to return...

    SEATTLE -- If you want to understand why Russell Wilson might go down as the most important player in the history of the Seattle Seahawks, maybe even the most important athlete to ever ply his trade in the Pacific Northwest, you can't begin with football.

In the months leading up to the birth of his twin sons, Seattle salesman Dave Quick daydreamed about sports the way so many young, first-time fathers do. When he closed his eyes, he could see the three of...

    With bartenders naming cocktails after Seahawks players, it’s no surprise a local pot grower has come up with a strain called “Beast Mode,” in tribute to Marshawn Lynch. “It’s extremely strong,” said Nate “Diggity” Johnson, owner of the Queen Anne Cannabis Club, which carries the strain named after the burly Seahawks running back. Most of the weed sold in Seattle medical-marijuana dispensaries has a THC content between 12 and 20 percent. An indica-dominant strain of the OG Kush family, Beast Mode has a THC content of 17.6, according to testing by Analytical 360, Johnson said.

Chiarelli was expecting a pleasant meeting. After all, the pair had what important businesspeople tend to call synergies: Chiarelli—who grew up in Seattle—is a big Seahawks fan.
