SEATTLE – Deion Branch botched his first impression in Seattle. And his second. And his third. And his fourth. And somehow, against all opposition, the cameras are still rolling for Take No. 5. It’s hard to determine whether he’s lucky, persistent or self-abusive.
MINNEAPOLIS – Looking to catch up on what happened in Seattle’s exhibition game at Minnesota on Saturday night? Well, that’s going to be difficult, considering the speed of Seattle safety Earl Thomas.
RENTON, Wash. – Leon Washington is back. He’s no longer a Jet. Yet the former All-Pro is soaring again, 10 months after a grotesque compound fracture in his leg.
Sixth-overall draft pick Russell Okung has a high right ankle sprain, putting the key position of left tackle in flux for the Seattle Seahawks heading into the regular season. Coach Pete Carroll announced after Tuesday’s practice in Renton, Wash., that he is holding out hope the replacement for retired All-Pro Walter Jones can play in the Sept. 12 opener against San Francisco. But the Seahawks are pushing ahead with backup plans of having either Mansfield Wrotto, a backup guard, or recuperating Chester Pitts protect quarterback Matt Hasselbeck’s blind side to begin the season.
The Seattle Seahawks have released former Oregon State wide receiver Mike Hass to make roster room for newly acquired free agent wide receiver Brandon Jones. The team had agreed to terms with Jones on Sunday. The 27-year-old played in eight games for San Francisco after the 49ers gave him a $16.6 million free-agent contract last year.
SEATTLE – The Seahawks lost a preseason game to the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night. And much more significantly, they may have lost a big part of their future for a little while. Worse than any of the results from the 27-24 loss was the fact that left tackle Russell Okung, the No. 6 pick of this year’s draft, left with an ankle injury and could be sidelined for a while.
RENTON, Wash. – The Seahawks acquired disgruntled defensive lineman Kentwan Balmer, a former first-round pick, in a trade with San Francisco Monday, giving the team another big body in a new-look defensive line. The team announced that Balmer was traded for an undisclosed 2011 draft pick, but multiple reports said that San Francisco will receive a sixth-round pick as compensation.
SEATTLE – The pressure was more than just a metaphor during Charlie Whitehurst’s first possession in his first game for the Seahawks. The Tennessee Titans’ defense was front-loaded at the line of scrimmage, baring its teeth for a blitz.
SEATTLE – After a start that was probably way too familiar to Seahawks fans, the team’s first preseason game of the Pete Carroll era turned into a mostly positive night for Seattle. In particular, Saturday night’s 20-18 preseason victory over the Tennessee Titans was marked by a pretty impressive coming out party for quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, one of Seattle’s biggest offseason acquisitions.
SEATTLE – Pete Carroll has spent the last few weeks touting his new book to everyone from ESPN to shoppers inside a neighborhood grocery in Seattle. It’s title: “Win Forever.”
The Seattle Seahawks and their new regime addressed their biggest and most urgent needs by selecting All-American left tackle Russell Okung from Oklahoma State with the sixth overall choice in the NFL draft, then Texas All-American safety Earl Thomas at No. 14 overall. “Today was a good day!!!” new Seahawks coach Pete Carroll posted on his Twitter page Thursday evening.
RENTON, Wash. – Pete Carroll’s coaching staff with the Seattle Seahawks is coming together with a heavy mix of NFL experience and some ties with Carroll’s last coaching job at Southern California. Carroll said Wednesday that most of his staff is in place with just a few positions still to be filled. Carroll had previously announced that offensive line coach Alex Gibbs would be joining the Seahawks after spending last season with Houston.
RENTON, Wash. – Pete Carroll pumped his fist. He talked excitedly and forcefully. He chopped the air with his hands, commanding his new audience. Even though he had stepped back up into the NFL, he was still in charge – which is exactly why he’s in Seattle now instead of Southern California.
Pete Carroll says he’s glad to be a Seahawk, and looks forward to turning around the fortunes of the team.
SEATTLE – Pete Carroll was dismissed from professional football 10 years ago, regarded as one heck of a guy with a not-so-terrible overall record who was nonetheless considered ill-suited to be an NFL head coach. At least that’s how Carroll was seen outside the New England Patriots’ locker room.
SEATTLE – The chief executive of the Seattle Seahawks is headed to California to meet with Pete Carroll, as the struggling team closes in on a deal with the charismatic coach at Southern California. A Seahawks spokesman confirmed Saturday night that team CEO Tod Leiweke will fly to Los Angeles today to interview Carroll for the coaching position and that the talks could last into Monday morning.
SEATTLE – Jim Mora is out and it looks like Pete Carroll may be in as the Seahawks’ new head football coach. Mora was fired Friday morning less than a week after he finished his first season as Seattle’s head coach.
