  • Commentary: Antonio Brown was a locker room cancer the Seahawks didn’t need

    I start with a sigh of relief that the circus did NOT come to town this weekend. Because it would have been a gong show with the clown named Antonio Brown. Now don’t get me wrong: Is Brown one of the most talented and dangerous receivers in the league? Yes. Could the Seahawks use help at the receiver position this season? Sure. And if you threw out all the distractions and baggage and attitude and ego and entitlement and just […]

  • Commentary: Clowney trade is crowning achievement in masterful offseason by Seahawks GM

    This week, there were a couple stories involving Seahawks general manager John Schneider: First, that John Schneider finally met John Schneider the actor from The Dukes of Hazzard. How that didn’t move the needle more, I’ll never know. And second, only the biggest, most lopsided and incredible trade I can ever remember: The Seahawks acquisition of Jadeveon Clowney. To recap, Clowney, one of the most dominant defensive linemen in the league who has made the Pro Bowl three straight years, […]

  • Commentary: Honors for Edgar and Lenny are deserved, yet come with extra responsibility (not for them)

    We begin tonight with a street and a statue. The street – to be named after NBA legend Lenny Wilkens. The statue – depicting baseball Hall of Famer Edgar Martinez. Both fitting honors that have multiple impacts. Let me preface this by commending the Mariners for capping Edgar’s Hall of Fame induction with a memorable celebration weekend, including a ceremony fit for a king. I can’t imagine anything more appropriate than the statue of Ken Griffey Junior now being joined […]

  • Commentary: A compromise worth considering? A world-class golf course at Discovery Park

    A couple months ago, I alerted everyone to a $104,000 study the city of Seattle paid for, targeting the future of the 3 ½ municipal golf courses in the city. As I mentioned before, ideas like re-purposing one or more of these historic courses for other uses – like affordable housing or extra transit parking for future light rail or even to a different kind of green space – all threaten the benefits unique to public courses, like a broader […]

  • Tyler Lockett would like to tell you about his love for HGTV

    SEATTLE — Q13 Sports Director Aaron Levine sat down with receiver Tyler Lockett and chatted about the upcoming season and more. This is a transcription of their interview: Levine: Last year, the team exceeded expectations by expert accounts, but the team always knew. What does this year bring? Lockett: This year is just about growth. That’s the biggest thing, regardless of expectations. We don’t really worry about expectations because we already believe that we should be able to win the […]

    SEATTLE — Q13 Sports Director Aaron Levine sat down with running back Chris Carson and chatted about the upcoming season and more. This is a transcription of their interview: Levine: Chris, you have more than 1,100 yards rushing, nine touchdowns, what did you learn about yourself last year? Carson: Just my style – 100%.

This is a transcription of their interview: Levine: The team exceeded expectations last year. What’s the theme for this year? Wright: Same thing. We just have to build off of what we did last year. Everyone had a vision and got along. We got to win this division, and we’ll go from there. Granted, what we did last year […]

  • Commentary: New contracts, not much drama for Wilson and Wagner – not surprising, yet refreshing

    The Seahawks now have both their quarterbacks locked up longterm: Their quarterback of the offense (Russell Wilson) and their quarterback of the defense (Bobby Wagner). And best of all – there’s no more contract drama, and it’s not even August. I don’t need to remind anyone that over the past five seasons, we’ve seen players absent from OTAs or mini-camps or arriving late to Seahawks Training Camp, even one player carrying a holdout into the regular season – all to […]
