  • Sixteen years and no playoffs? Here’s why these Mariners may be different

    SEATTLE – Is it time to believe in the Mariners? That’s the question fans and pundits have been asking for more than month. After Wednesday’s walkoff win against the Angels at Safeco Field, Seattle has won 20 of 25 games and enters a four-game showdown Thursday against the Red Sox with the third-best record in baseball. At 44-24, the Mariners are 20 games over .500 for the first time since Aug. 24, 2007, and even manager Scott Servais is urging […]

  • Centralia man holds neighbors against will, makes them do chores, police say

    The family hadn't talked to their neighbor much before, Centralia Police Detective John Panco said. That changed Wednesday, when they were allegedly held against their will and ordered to do chores, he said.

  • Carroll and Schneider built the Seahawks once in the draft; can they do it again?

    RENTON, Wash. – Pete Carroll and John Schneider might be victims of their own success. The Seahawks’ coach and general manager drafted so well their first three years in Seattle that there weren’t a lot of spots left on the roster for subsequent draft picks. At least that’s one theory. There have been a number of explanations over the years as to why Carroll and Schneider haven’t been able to duplicate their early drafting success. What’s no longer up for […]

  • Who will the Seahawks take in the NFL Draft? Here’s a prediction

    Figuring out what the Seattle Seahawks will do in the NFL Draft is not easy. Under coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider the team has been anything but predictable. That being said, it’s hard to argue with their success. The day before the first round, we asked NFL Draft expert Rob Rang of who he thinks the Seahawks will pick Thursday. This year’s NFL Draft will be broadcast on the home of the Seahawks, Q13 FOX, with Draft […]

  • Drafting Malik McDowell was bad, but was it the worst pick in Seahawks history?

    SEATTLE – The Seahawks haven’t always drafted well. Look no further than last year for evidence of that. With Seattle’s first pick in 2017, general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll took defensive lineman Malik McDowell in the second round. At the time, it was considered a reach by some draft analysts. Since then, it has come to be known as a disaster. McDowell never played for the Seahawks in 2017 after being injured in a reported ATV accident […]

  • Is the Seahawks’ best draft pick ever in the Hall of Fame, living in San Francisco or still on the roster?

    SEATTLE – When evaluating NFL draft picks, the same debate often ensues. What is more important: The player a team gets, or which pick the team uses to acquire him? Most experts try to find the the perfect balance. “I try to take both things into account,” Rob Rang of said. “The value of the selection, certainly if a player is selected late or even is an undrafted free agent, then clearly there’s a little bit more of a […]

  • It’s time to save our orcas, state lawmaker says

    Time may be running out on local orcas. “We are now down to a record-low of 76 whales in the population,” state Sen. Kevin Ranker said Tuesday. That’s why Ranker, D-Orcas Island, is leading the charge to create the Orca Protection Act, an update to the state’s current regulations. “There are many scientists who are even saying we may be at or near or even potentially below carrying capacity,” he said “Which means there are not enough reproductive males and […]

  • Seahawks’ veteran ‘replacements’ may be key to another playoff run

    SEATTLE – The Seattle Seahawks have suffered injuries to key players before. Their mantra when such a setback occurs: “Next man up.” Those reinforcements are usually up-and-coming players whom general manager John Schneider found late in drafts or as undrafted free agents. That’s how Richard Sherman got his shot. Kam Chancellor, too. But this year Schneider and the Seahawks have found more seasoned stand-ins. Trades and free agency have brought Seattle a wealth of veteran depth that has been critical […]

  • Could this be the season Bobby Wagner is finally named NFL Defensive Player of the Year?

    SEATTLE – Bobby Wagner keeps getting better. That’s what his coaches and teammates say. “He’s making plays left and right, all over the place,” fellow Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright said this week. “Bobby Wagner is the best in the business at what he does,” quarterback Russell Wilson said. “It’s been that way for years and years.” Wagner is a three-time Pro Bowler and has twice been named an All Pro. But his stellar play this season has some labeling him […]

  • Why doctors say Chancellor and Avril’s neck injuries could be career-threatening

    It’s a question on all of our minds: Will Cliff Avril and Kam Chancellor ever play football again? That was one question asked of Pete Carroll at a press conference this week after the Seahawks coach said both defensive standouts will miss the rest of this season because of neck injuries. Carroll didn’t offer a clear answer. “I know you guys want more on this stuff,” he said. “But I’m just trying to respect their situations as much as I […]
