Did Spike Lee spill the beans on Colin Kaepernick signing with the Seahawks?

Filmmaker and noted sports enthusiast Spike Lee is often seen adjacent to big sports moments as a fan, but on Saturday he may have directly involved himself into NFL headlines. Well, actually there’s no “may” about it because I just wrote an NFL headline with Spike Lee in it for this very article. That’s because Lee made a since-deleted post on Instagram announcing that the Seattle Seahawks had signed his friend Colin Kaepernick to a contract.

The still-up tweet about the signing is...

Sam’s Film Room: Malik McDowell’s fit in Seahawks’ 4-3 Under defense

Edit: If the video above does not play, please click “Watch on YouTube” or follow this link.

Malik McDowell is a freak athlete and has incredible burst off the line of scrimmage. The Michigan State defender has loose hips and has shown on tape that he has the potential to be a playmaker in the NFL. The main reason why he fell out of the first round was due to his poor effort at the end of the season. The entire Michigan game was an example of this.

In Seattle, Pete Carroll runs a 4-3...

Which major Seahawks name will be gone by 2018?

Turnover happens.

Turnover on the Seattle Seahawks roster since 43-8 has been high. A mile high, you might even say. By the end of 2016, most of the men who discombobulated the Denver Broncos were out of the NFL or on other teams.

46 Seahawks appeared in XLVIII. In the season-ending playoff loss to the Atlanta Falcons three years later, only 16 of the same men were active.

Thirty of them vanished.

However, big-time star turnover remained low. Sure, Golden Tate got more money from Detroit;...

Michael Bennett continues to stress team unity

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was immediately dismissive of an article on ESPN on Thursday that posited a rift between cornerback Richard Sherman and quarterback Russell Wilson. Bennett called the article “trash,” and Sherman quickly followed suit by saying it was “nonsense.” On Friday, Bennett threw a few more punches at the premise, but in a more subtle way.

Enemy Reaction Throwback Edition: Seahawks 14 Packers 12 - Fail Mary

Five years ago, after the Seattle Seahawks controversially defeated the Green Bay Packers in an absolute mess of a football game, I made a vow not to do an Enemy Reaction for it because of what a clownshow it was. It’s one of the few times I’ve genuinely been pissed off after a Seahawks win.

It’s been nearly five full years since this game happened, and I’ve finally relented. There was a lot more to this game than Fail Mary. You had eight sacks of Aaron Rodgers, you had Golden...

Cliff Avril appreciation thread

Cliff Avril knows failure.

A three-star recruit out of Green Cove Springs, FL, Avril was 247’s 59th-best recruit in the state in 2004. It would be an accomplishment if you recognized five of the 58 names listed ahead of him now. He was the 24th-ranked outside linebacker in the nation, behind guys like Lawrence Timmons, Dannell Ellerbe, and Jerod Mayo, but not much else by NFL standards. Avril chose to attend Purdue, a team that had been a regular in bowl games under head coach Joe Tiller,...

Little Things, Week 11: Seahawks record costly victory over Eagles

Losing hurts; winning too, sometimes

This convincing 26-15 home win over the Eagles had some beautiful big things in it. C.J. Prosise’s brilliant 72-yard touchdown run, which would end up being the second-longest play from scrimmage for the Seattle Seahawks in 2016. Look at it from an all-22 angle.

Re-enjoy Jimmy Graham’s equally brilliant 35-yard touchdown catch:

And finally, a trick play that showcased how much healthier Russell Wilson was in Week 11 than in the first half of the...

Michael Bennett calls ESPN article about Russell Wilson and Seahawks locker room divide “trash” and “all gossip”

When Michael Bennett is done with his playing career in the NFL, he might want to try out for a career in media criticism. Awful Announcing is always accepting freelance submissions. Just this month we’ve seen Bennett call out Stephen A. Smith as well as the Seattle Times. The dispute with the Times actually ended with an apology from the paper after Bennett threatened not to speak with them for the rest of his career. That actually led to an apology from a columnist who criticized...

Which Seahawk is the biggest 2017 X-factor?

Among many candidates.

Before the 2016 season, more than a couple Seattle Seahawks X-factors were bandied about. You heard their names; you wished them unabashed success. Jeremy Lane. DeShawn Shead. Paul Richardson. Garry Gilliam. Thomas Rawls. Nolan Frese. Even Jimmy Graham in his return from patellar issues.

Some ended up disappointing, and the team paid for it. Some ended up kicking ass and taking names, maybe even yours. Which is good. We all need a little humbling from time to...

ESPN’s Seth Wickersham responds to Michael Bennett saying Richard Sherman article is ‘all gossip’

Is there friction between the Seattle Seahawks offense and defense? Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman would say no. ESPN’s Seth Wickersham, however, wrote something quite different. Wickersham detailed issues between Seattle’s offense and defense that started even before the controversial play call at the end of Super Bowl XLIX. Not surprisingly, Sherman and Bennett didn’t think much of it. Per Michael David Smith, Pro Football Talk, Sherman went on SiriusXM NFL Radio and called...

The Seahawks reportedly still aren’t over Russell Wilson’s disastrous Super Bowl interception

It’s been more than two years since the Seattle Seahawks lost to the New England Patriots after Russell Wilson threw an interception on the Patriots’ one-yard line. Apparently, the Seahawks still aren’t over it. Over at ESPN, reporter Seth Wickersham detailed a rift within the Seahawks’ roster, with Wilson and coach Pete Carroll on one side, and Richard Sherman and other defensive players on the other side. According to Wickersham, Sherman still hasn’t moved on from what he...

Report: Kaepernick ‘wants to be a Seahawk,’ content to be backup

The Seattle Seahawks hosted Colin Kaepernick Wednesday, and the meeting between the two parties went well. Now new information is coming out on this front, most notably that Kaepernick “wants to be a Seahawk” and that he has no issues at all being a backup to Russell Wilson. Much has been written about why Seattle makes perfect sense as the landing spot for the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. We tend to agree.Given Wilson’s pedigree and command of the team’s offense, there...
