    This tweet sums up the first quarter of the season for the Seahawks fairly well. Not too many experts predicted an undefeated start, but the defense has been playing lights out. They are holding their opponents to an average of 19 points per game. Seattle currently leads the league in rushing yards, and Russell Wilson has been great at managing games with 8 TDs and just four interceptions. They are facing some injuries, with Sydney Rice out for eight weeks with a broken collarbone and DE Red Bryant out for four weeks with a torn bicep. Time will tell if this success continues down the stretch.

    I'm disappointed I didn't keep this updated, but better late than never. I will make good on all recaps/content from here on out.

    With his first full season under his belt, Coach Fuzzy has led this Seahawk team to a 12-4 finish, and a BYE in the first round of the 2013 playoffs. The defense has kept them in games all season, along with the FA addition of Hester who has had a spectacular year with punt/kick/missed FG returns for TDs. Rumors are abundant that Russell Wilson may not be on the team next year, with 29 TDs and 24 costly INTs. It will depend on his performance in the playoffs. He has been inconsistent at best. The hard hitting and aggressive defensive unit mirror the image of their coach, and time will tell if defense still wins championships in this league. Stay tuned for more updates during the playoffs.

    Maybe you had more success against other teams, but at least against me, Russell Wilson had little success with the read option. FYI, San Francisco will be back next year. :p

    Right you are, on to the next update:

    Nothing stings worse than a loss. The Seahawks hosted the Redskins in the divisional round, and got off to a promising start. They put together a solid drive that ended in a FG to gain the lead, and then on the Redskins drive, Earl Thomas forced a big fumble that Jones returned for a TD. Seattle found themselves up 10-0 late in the first, but then sputtered out of control. The defense played well, but they were tired and on the field entirely too long. After 3 Russell Wilson INTs, the Seahawks were down 33-10 late in the 4th quarter. It didn't help the WRs had 9 drops in the game. They got a late score and a two point conversation to make it a 18-33 game, but couldn't recover the onside kick. You can't win the SB with the ability to only score one TD on offense. This defense is near perfection, but the offense will totally be scraped and it's back to the drawing board for the offseason. It's very doubtful Wilson will be the starting QB next year, and the read option is going out the window. This one is going to give coach Fuzzy nightmares for months to come, nothing is worse than having a great season end in the first round of the playoffs. Stay tuned for offseason updates.

    The Sehawks are poised to make a mark in 2015, with Coach Fuzzy's second full season soon underway, and his second draft class added to the roster. There is no doubt that Seattle has the deepest RB corps in the league with Lynch, rookie Stecko, Michael Turner acquired in FA, and the the third down speedster Washington. Rookie QB Wes Crane looks damn impressive, and may just challenge Russell Wilson for the starting job. Not much has changed philosophy wise, this team is still a ground and pound offense with a heavy hitting, aggressive defense. The Seahawks have a ton of depth now, and are looking to rebound from a tough loss in the divisional round to the would-be superbowl champs. Time will tell if these recent acquisitions will result in more wins. Stay tuned.

    The Sehawks decided to give rookie QB Wes Crane the nod for the starting position after an impressive spring camp and preseason. It looks that decision was a good move so far, as Crane exploded in his first NFL game, with 5 TDs in an OT win over the Patriots. Time will tell if Crane can keep this up consistently, but the coaches were blown away by what they saw on the field. The defense looks a bit rusty though, and will need to be corrected going into week two. Stay tuned for more updates.

    Wes Crane could not duplicate his amazing performance in week two, he looked very much like a rookie in this outing. A big factor in that was little separation of his receivers from defenders, and constant pressure from the Rams' defensive line (Chris Long had three sacks alone). Seattle gave up on the run game way too early, especially with having four capable backs who can get the job done in different ways. The Rams had long drives that pressured the Seahawks in trying to respond too quickly. The run game and defense have to a better job of helping Crane and easing him into this new starting role. GG BRUCE80, frustrating game on our end.

    Wes Crane looked a lot better this week, but he owes a big thanks to his defense for giving the offense seven extra possessions, and the balanced playcalling in which he threw three less times than the team rushed the ball. This is when he should excel. He did throw two bone headed picks on the day, but he is still learning the ropes. Can the rookie QB with a chip on his shoulder lead his team to the playoffs? Time will tell.
