Seahawks coach Pete Carroll on #Bears QB coach Jeremy Bates, who he fired: "It was just time to move on. He’s an excellent football coach." We made some changes in what happened with our running game, and the whole staff, so it just fit better to do what we’re doing now. We wish him the best."

"Nothing different," Sherman said. "It’s not tough at all. This is the same old routine for us. Regardless of what’s going on, you just go out there and play football. That’s the good thing about the game, you can just go out there and play, you ain’t got to worry about nothing. And there’s nothing to worry about in the first place. "It doesn’t affect me at all, because it happens like that in life. There are always misunderstandings and mishaps, and all you can do is continue to go about your job the same way you’ve been going about it and let everything play itself out."

OC Bevell on airing it out: "We’re a running team." | Seahawks Insider
Seahawk offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell has heard a steady diet of this question most of this season – when are you going to open up the offense? Well, apparently he’d had enough, because Bevell was the most animated I’ve seen during his weekly interview session every Wednesday. "I don’t know if that just means throwing it all over the place, and throwing it 15 times in a row," Bevell said. "If that’s what it means – probably not.

Eight isn't enough
Leon Washington ran his way to tying an NFL record on Sunday with his eighth kickoff return for a touchdown, and No. 8 was a perfect example of why he’s gone where only one other returner has been.

NFC West: Injury situations that matter - NFC West Blog - ESPN
Seattle Seahawks: Defensive end Red Bryant (foot) and linebacker Leroy Hill (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Bryant's injury situation was newly revealed. It could explain some of the Seahawks' troubles in run defense recently. He hasn't been as active or effective as in the past. The Seahawks otherwise appear quite healthy. Running back Marshawn Lynch (back) and defensive end Greg Scruggs (oblique) were limited. Lynch appears on the injury report regularly and plays in the games anyway. Seattle welcomed back guard James Carpenter from a concussion last week. He has played in 15 of 27 games since Seattle made him a first-round draft choice in 2011.

John Moffitt on Adderall: 'It was a total mistake' | Seahawks Blog | The Seattle Times
"With me, it was just something that I didn't realize," Moffitt said. "It was a total mistake." There was a reason for that. Moffitt was a rookie, drafted by Seattle while the lockout was under way. He didn't sign his contract in time to participate in the first day of training camp, which is when he said was when the policy was spelled out to the team, including the mention that Adderall was a banned substance. "The day we had the info on it, I was held out," Moffitt said. "I was holding out my first day so I really didn't know. I don't think guys realize because it is a medication also. There's a lot of cases where guys already had prescriptions, but not through the league. It's just a really weird thing. It's not like steroids."

Harbaugh picks Kaepernick as 49ers starting QB over Smith; is it a gamble? -
"The rationale is that we have two quarterbacks that we feel great about as the starting quarterback, both have earned it, both deserve it," Harbaugh said. "Alex over of a long period of time, Colin by virtue of the last few games. We believe Colin has the hot hand and we'll go with Colin." - Cardinals' sinking feeling grows with Sendlein out for year
"It’s a huge loss," one team insider said. "Lyle is a good, steady player who made a lot of line calls. He was probably their best lineman. His presence had been especially important with a rookie (Ryan Lindley) under center. The guy’s incredibly tough. He suffered the knee injury in the first quarter (of the loss to the Rams) and kept on playing the rest of the game. Back in 2008, he took some heat for not playing real well, but then it came out that he played almost the whole season with a really hurt shoulder."

Who Is the Offensive Rookie of the Year? - The Triangle Blog - Grantland
The arrival of Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III into the National Football League could not have gone much more swimmingly. In fact, while expectations were high for the top two picks in the 2012 draft, it's arguable that they've both exceeded whatever lofty expectations they rode in on over the summer. Luck is leading a team that went 2-14 last season on an improbable playoff run in the AFC South, while RG3 has become the league's most exciting player and might even be the best player in the NFC East this year. Fans of the Colts and Redskins — and good football — have to be ecstatic at what their respective organizations are set up to do over the next 15 years.

The Chicago Tribune‘s Brad Biggs provided an extended version of Marshall’s comments: "I don’t know too much about Adderall," Marshall said. "I know guys, it is such a competitive league, guys try anything just to get that edge. I’m fortunate enough to be blessed with size and some smarts to give me my edge. But some guys, they’ll do whatever they can to get an edge. I’ve heard of some crazy stories. I’ve heard (of) guys using like Viagra, seriously. Because the blood is supposedly thin, some crazy stuff. So, you know, it’s kind of scary with some of these chemicals that are in some of these things so you have to be careful."
