Deep scouting has been the key to Seahawks’ surprises - Shutdown Corner - NFL Blog - Yahoo! Sports
Perhaps even more surprising than the Seattle Seahawks' 36-25 Sunday win over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium — the franchise's first win in New York since 1983 — were the key contributions made by two undrafted free agents. Receiver Doug Baldwin(notes) and cornerback Brandon Browner(notes) came to the NFL on different career paths, but they're both making a difference for a team in need of quality depth and starter-level talent at positions of uncertainty.

Pocket Presence " The Rookie Scouting Portfolio
No skill set might be more important to the success of a pro quarterback than pocket presence. I believe pocket presence spells the difference between the strong armed, elite athlete who cannot stay on an NFL squad (Josh McCown) and a weaker-armed passer who consistently finds work as a reliable No.2 QB capable of putting his team in position to win games (Bruce Gradkowski and Jeff Garcia).

Quinton Coples is over rated " Seahawks Draft Blog
I’ve just finished watching the Louisville vs North Carolina game from Saturday, focusing on UNC defensive lineman Quinton Coples. I’ve never been that impressed when I’ve watched him in the past, but this was a game I thought he had a chance to dominate. Louisville are struggling a bit – losing at home to Marshall the previous week and starting a freshman left guard who had only recently converted from defense.

Seahawks 36, Giants 25: Some Telling Statistics
I love looking through box scores on a Sunday evening. Not just the Seahawks games but for all the NFL games. It is interesting to take the stats, look at the final score, and figure out which stats were the important ones and game changers. It isn’t always just the highest yardage totals that win. Here are a few stats I saw in the Seahawks-Giants box score that I think made a huge difference in this game.

Wind it up and let it go. That’s what the Seattle Seahawks did with their version of the no-huddle offense.

Some people believe Ryan Tannehill could be better than Matt Barkley. I strongly disagree with that suggestion. Very strongly. Below you’ll find six videos – the first three are all of Barkley’s throws against Minnesota, Arizona State and Arizona. The second three feature Tannehill’s throws against SMU, Oklahoma State and Arkansas.

Suck for Barkley " Wait For It Seattle
Well, the Seahawks aren’t as bad as we all thought. In fact, they aren’t as bad as anyone thought. Survivor pools across the nation are dying tonight as the lowly Seattle Seahawks went into big bad New York and made Eli Manning look like Eli Manning. As I have discussed before, it is hard to root for the Hawks at times because it feels like they are stuck in a perpetual 7-9 or 8-8 cycle. With Tarvaris Jackson at quarterback this doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. Yet somehow, someway the Seattle Seahawks turned into an entertaining team. And in the process they have won two out of the last three games.
