Wilson heroics draw praise

RENTON, Wash. – The distances the Seattle Seahawks offense needed to cover late in regulation and then again in overtime left plenty of opportunity, as coach Pete Carroll put it, to “really screw it up.” Not with Russell Wilson at the controls. Not with the way this rookie is playing.

Seattle receiver Rice has scoop on Vikings

Seattle Seahawks sign deals with Mebane, Carpenter, Moffit

RENTON, Wash. – The toughest part of John Schneider’s week wasn’t the lack of sleep or the endless phone calls, emails and text messages. It probably came when his young son punched him and ran out of the room crying when it became public that Matt Hasselbeck wasn’t returning to Seattle.
