  • Commentary: Who’s got it better than Jim Harbaugh? The Seattle Seahawks.

    Tonight we pay tribute to what seems like the end of the Pete Carroll–Jim Harbaugh rivalry. One that was put under the microscope, dramatized, and sensationalized – but most of all – incredibly enjoyable to watch. And we do it the same Niners General Manager Trent Baalke did it in the press box earlier today. (Slams table). With the Niners officially eliminated from the playoffs, it’s a safe bet that Harbaugh won’t be back in San Francisco next year – […]

  • Commentary: New CFB playoff will be flawed until eight teams are in

    We start with a college football playoff system that is flawed. Sound familiar? But before we rip the new four-team playoff, we have to acknowledge some semblance of progress. Based on a simulation, if the old BCS system was still in place, Alabama and Florida State would be number one and number two, and THEY would face each other in the BCS National Championship Game. Regardless of your feelings toward the Oregon Ducks – it would have been yet one […]

  • Commentary: Headlines about Marshawn Lynch are misguided – and bury the lede

    We start with the big headline today regarding Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch: “Lynch has STRONG relationship with a Seahawks coach” Wait – that’s not the headline you read? That’s unfortunate, because that’s the best news I’ve heard in a really long time! Scroll through today’s headlines, and here’s what you see instead – “Marshawn Lynch Considering Retirement After This Season.” Basically, it’s a similar headline to what we heard after the Seahawks won the Super Bowl – and a […]

    Ravens RB Justin Forsett, a former Seahawk, gives us tour of his high school

    In honor of Ravens RB Justin Forsett, who ran for 182 yards and 2 TDs Monday night in a 34-27 win over New Orleans, we once again share the unique tour we took with the former Seahawk at his high school in Arlington, Texas. This was originally broadcast during Super Bowl week in 2011.

  • Commentary: For Seattle Sports Fans, Thanksgiving Weekend Can’t Come Soon Enough

    Before we look back at a satisfying Sunday, we look ahead to one of the most exciting, packed and meaningful Thanksgiving weekends I can ever remember in Seattle sports. On Thursday night, the Seahawks and Niners. On Friday night, a 3A state semifinal game at the Tacoma Dome between six-time defending state champion Bellevue, and the sentimental favorites from Marysville-Pilchuck. On Saturday night, the Apple Cup. And on Sunday night, the deciding game of the MLS Western Conference Finals for […]

  • Commentary: Petersen deprived Huskies of much-needed win

    We start tonight with an analogy: Imagine that I’m a CEO of a business, getting paid millions of dollars – and the contents of this envelope are time-sensitive and hold important information relating to a major acquisition. On my desk, I have the stamps necessary to mail this envelope myself. In fact, my assistant has the stamps needed to send it too. But do I put the stamps on it myself? Nope. Does my assistant put the stamps on it? […]

    Commentary: Sounders FC season will be defined by MLS Cup Playoffs

    Call it hyperbole, but in terms of scope, I think Monday night’s match against FC Dallas an absolute must-advance match, through either a win or a scoreless draw. Now, you say “wait a minute:” The Sounders won a Supporters Shield for having the best regular-season record in the league. They won a U.S. Open Cup Championship for the fourth time in six years. How can I stand here and call tomorrow’s conference semifinal match a seminal moment for this organization? […]

  • Commentary: Shaq and Connor – Deserving Our Attention

    In a year that’s been forgettable on the Palouse and fairly average on Montlake, we pay tribute to a couple players who have given us a reason to watch. Thank you, Shaq Thompson and Connor Halliday. Halliday’s Washington St. career ended prematurely yesterday with a broken fibula, adding insult to an already dreadful season for the Cougs. It ended the most productive career by a quarterback in the school’s history – one that included the most passing yards ever in […]

  • Commentary: Russell Wilson’s ‘Ignore The Noise’ motto can work for 12s too

    So, here’s what I’m most proud of: Amidst all the media reports, all the potential distractions, Russell Wilson followed his own advice. He and the Seahawks ignored the noise when it mattered the most, and won today’s game. As fans, we should all do the same. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the last week and a half has felt like an ongoing episode of TMZ. The Percy Harvin trade immediately spurred a domino effect of “team sources say this” […]
