Seattle gets a 2014 pick from Oakland and a 2015 pick returned via voided trade.

Flynn trade: Seattle receives Oak's 5th-round pick in 2014. The 2015 conditional pick (also 5th rd) is voided b/c Flynn not on '15 roster.

Flashback watching the Houston game...

as the Texans were working their way down the field with 3:00 left and Schaub threw his pick 6, I remembered the days when the Hawks would be in a similar situation, and although we were hopeful and optimistic that the Seahawks could hang on, deep down we knew something would happen and we wouldn't coming away with the W, and sure enough it would happen. Don't you miss those days? Yeah, me neither.

Seahawks bar in Anchorage, AK?

Do any of you know if there is a Seahawks bar in Anchorage, AK? I'm going to try out the whole go to a bar for the games thing this year and was curious whether anyone on FG knew/goes to a specific bar here in Anchorage. Just let me know, I'd like a few options if at all possible. GO HAWKS!!!

"You kind of want to see what you have in your draft picks. You’d like to be able to see what their strengths and weaknesses are as much as you can in those three days," Bevell said. "Then you’re looking at a bunch of tryout guys out there and the free agents we’ve signed. Sometimes you flip them out, sometimes it’s, ‘Whoa, we really liked how that guy looked. We want to give him a chance.’ You want to be able to see that with all the guys we have coming in."

Previously, CTE had been found in 18 of the 19 former NFL players whose brains were examined. The 15 new cases in the BU study mean that of the 34 brains of former NFL players that have been examined, 33 had the disease. Linemen made up 40 percent of those cases, supporting research that suggests repetitive head trauma occurring on every play -- not concussions associated with violent collisions -- may be the biggest risk.

http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/page/OTL%20CTE%20study/boston-university-researchers-discover-28-new-cases-chronic-brain-damage-deceased-football-players When Sidney Rice scored the game winning touchdown it was, well if you're reading this I don't need to tell you what it was. It was. And then the hit came. And Sidney's body collapsed into the end zone stiff and lifeless. Roger Goodell has run a smokescreen. A futile effort to rid the game of this ugly moment. When football's biggest stars grotesquely render the awful cost of football. But it is increasingly clear, however ugly, the immediate aftereffects of concussion mislead too. They suggest a momentary, containable and fixable problem. If only we could eliminate helmet-to-helmet contact...if only we could rid telecasts of that ugly rigor-mortis like posture of the concussed...if only we could make the brain-deadening truth about football removed enough to be ignored. Nevermind that every play, at every level destroys men. Tackle by tackle. Block by block. I won't be watching next Sunday. I long shrugged off that hasty analogy: gladiator sport. Football is a gladiator sport: sensationalist crap. People work. And work wears you down. Wrist, knees, back: you sacrifice body for food, family, shelter, life. I didn't see gladiators in pads. I saw workers. And now i know those workers are sacrificing something as sacred as life--sanity, family, a life after work--for my entertainment. And I'm done.
