Nobody wants to play for Tom Coughlin - Shutdown Corner - NFL Blog - Yahoo! Sports
Not surprisingly, the most popular answers were the mean guys. Here are your top-three vote-getters: Tom Coughlin, New York Giants - 22 Tony Sparano, Miami Dolphins - 21 Bill Belichick, New England Patriots - 15 Pete Carroll, Todd Haley, Jim Harbaugh, Rex Ryan and Jim Schwartz were next on the list, but none of them had more than six votes. Coughlin, Sparano and Belichick are clearly the meanest teachers in the school.

Top 10 Free Agents Making an Impact | ProFootballFocus.com
4.  Alan Branch, DT, Seattle Seahawks Contract: Two-year, $8m Impact: Probably the most surprising name on this given how under the radar his performances have been.  Branch hasn’t produced big numbers, with just one sack and 10 total pressures on the year, but he’s currently our top ranked defensive tackle in run defense. Honestly, I did not see this coming given his performances in Arizona, but Seattle have done it again (after Raheem Brock last season) by turning one teams trash into their very own piece of treasure.

Seattle Seahawks Blog - Hawk Blogger: Pete Carroll Is Not Getting A Fair Shake
Losing sucks. Seahawks fans know that from experience. Winning is pretty darn fantastic. Seahawks fans a little about that as well. The strong aversion to losing, and constant yearning for victory can leave a fan feeling anything but objective when faced with painful loss after painful loss. There is something more than frustration, though, that is driving criticism of Pete Carroll. Many local media members and a sizable share of fans appear to have made up their minds about Carroll before his tenure in Seattle really began.

17 Power, A Seattle Seahawks Blog: Props from Football Outsiders on Seahawks O-line
The insightful Ben Muth of Football Outsiders has some praise for the Seahawks offensive line. At least, I think it's praise for the Seahawks O-line. I can't be sure. It's been so long since I've seen it, I've forgotten what it looks like.

Upon Further Review: Seahawks-Cowboys - Daily Links Blog - MyNorthwest.com
No surprise Zach Miller had no targets. Seattle's tight end wasn't targeted once, but it wasn't necessarily because Tarvaris Jackson wasn't looking his way. It didn't help that he only ran a route six times, by my count. The Seahawks needed all the help they could get in pass protection. Miller and Russell Okung held their own against Dallas' DeMarcus Ware, even in one-on-one situations.

Seattle finds many ways to end up 2-6 - Seahawks News - MyNorthwest.com
Whether it was offensive ineptitude, defensive lapses or special teams meltdowns, the Seattle Seahawks have found plenty of different ways to end the first half of the season with a 2-6 record.

Seahawks Blog | Jarriel King from DE to LT to LG? | Seattle Times Newspaper - Jarriel King is one of four players the Seahawks claimed off waivers the week before the regular season began.

Robert Griffin III tape, ESPN big boards and more " Seahawks Draft Blog - Above you’ll find game tape from Robert Griffin III’s most recent performance in a victory over SEC-bound Missouri. I’ll be breaking down his display in a larger piece tomorrow. I’m trying to get an angle on a definite draft grade for the Baylor quarterback and so far it’s proving difficult. He’s very much a wildcard prospect with a lot of upside and he’s developed greatly during his four years with the Bears. However, something keeps holding me back when it comes to committing to a high grade, even though he’s definitely an intriguing prospect.

2nd Tier (and beyond) QB Prospects - Mocking The Draft
Most people who follow football know that Tom Brady is one of the all time late round draft steals - selected in the 6th round of the 2000 draft sixteen selections after Spergon Wynn and three spots before Todd Husak. He's outlasted 10 the 11 other QB's taken in 2000; only Chris Redman (3rd round) is also still active. More knowledgeable fans might also know that there are a few high-quality NFL QB's who didn't get much hype on draft day: Tony Romo (undrafted), Matt Hasselbeck (6th round), Matt Schaub (3rd round) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (7th round). These guys are often used as examples of how great QB's can be found anywhere in the draft. Unfortunately, that's usually not the case. Almost all successful NFL QB's are found in the top 50 selections of the draft. However, that won't stop NFL personnel men and general managers from trying to unearth the next Brady or Romo.
