The NFL has suspended Seattle Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks for eight games for his role in an insider trading scheme.
A year ago, Pete Carroll might not have thrown his challenge flag when he saw David Moore lose control of the ball as he hit the turf at the end of an apparent 27-yard catch in the second quarter of Sunday’s 28-14 win over the Lions.
Pete Carroll, John Schneider, anyone in the Seahawks front office – they refused to use the “R” word this offseason. Didn’t matter how many Pro Bowlers left or got hurt – they were never “rebuilding,” they were always “retooling.” Seven games into the season, I think I’m willing to admit it: Pete and John were right.
Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter to put the Seahawks ahead and they went on to beat the Detroit Lions 28-14 Sunday, leaning on their running game and defense just as they have throughout their turnaround.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he’s been in contact with the NFL regarding a review of the indefinite suspension given to linebacker Mychal Kendricks and is hopeful for some sort of decision to come early next week. Carroll says Kendricks met with league officials earlier this week and the Seahawks have been awaiting word on whether his suspension may be reduced.
Linebacker K.J. Wright is finally set to make his season debut when the Seahawks travel to Detroit on Sunday. Wright’s return from injury comes a month later than he expected. But he should help solidify a position that’s used four different players through Seattle’s first six games.
It’s taken just a few weeks for David Moore to start getting attention. In the past three games, Moore has gone from being mostly a special teams contributor with only a handful of snaps on offense, to having caught three touchdown passes and supplanting Brandon Marshall as the No. 3 wide receiver in Seattle’s offense. While Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin remain the top targets for Wilson in Seattle’s pass game, Moore has quickly made his case for more passes headed his direction.
Seahawks rookie Tre Flowers is simultaneously learning a new position and raising a 19-month-old daughter, Bailee. And, even without a whole lot of sleep, he's starting to excel.
A look at Seattle’s statistical turnaround of late and some thoughts on why it has happened.
The Seahawks got back to work Monday following their trip to London and their bye week. They were on the field for a little more than an hour at the VMAC as they began preparations for their game Sunday at Detroit.
Tyrone Swoopes flew from Whitewright, Texas, to Seattle to join the Seahawks on Monday, then boarded a flight with the team to London on Wednesday. On Sunday, he claimed his first career catch in his first career start.
By the time December rolls around, the Seattle Seahawks may have more regret than they currently do about what transpired the first two weeks of the regular season.
