Austin Davis, Southern Miss defeats #6 Houston " Seahawks Draft Blog
Austin Davis will do what it takes to achieve his goals. That’s the lasting impression I had following our conversation back in July as Davis prepared for his senior year at Southern Miss. "The biggest thing is to be a winner and to be a guy that people want on their team. You can’t do anything about your height, you can’t do anything about a lot of things. You can do something about your attitude, your work ethic and your mentality towards the game. That’s one thing I want to excel at and be the best at. I want to win games and I want to lead this team."

17 Power, A Seattle Seahawks Blog: DVR Run Analysis - Philadelphia @ Seattle; 1-Dec-2011
This was the week of the breakaway run. We lost some consistency this week as we had five runs for loses and twelve of thirty planned runs with gains of less than three yards. Half of our runs were for less than four. I attribute this more to an over-aggressive defense than inconsistent play from the offense. Yeah, they stopped us at times, but they also got burned - badly.

The Brewery | What is Marshawn Lynch's worth? | Seattle Times Newspaper
I started advocating that the Seahawks pay Marshawn Lynch, who will be a free agent at season's end, in my latest column. Of course, that's easy to say. But there are several things to consider that I couldn't fit into a 710-word opinion written on deadline after a night game.

Seahawks, Carroll must find way to keep Tom Cable - Seahawks News - MyNorthwest.com
Since UCLA fired head coach Rick Neuheisel, the rumors that UCLA and Tom Cable are mutually interested in one another is something that should be disturbing to Seahawks fans. If you're head Coach Pete Carroll it should be particularly troubling, but it's the chance you take when hiring a guy like Cable and it speaks volumes about Carroll himself. A less secure head coach hires assistants that aren't a threat to him or won't be plucked from his staff.
