Percy Harvin had support from Marshawn Lynch, Doug Baldwin

3

"For as much trouble as he created at times, Harvin also had a strong base of support on the team, and several of his former teammates are upset by the trade, which does nothing to help a struggling offense in the short term this season. Even Baldwin, who fought with Harvin, was in his corner and wanted him still on the team. And particularly among hard-nosed Seahawks like running back Marshawn Lynch and key members of the defense, Harvin was very well-liked. So there could be some fallout and tension caused by his exodus."

Shannon Sharpe says Seahawks arent unbeatable like the '76 Steelers were...wait...what?

"...I think San Diego showed Seattle is beatable. Everybody was talking about them like they were the '76 Steelers. Are they a good football team? Absolutely. But they're beatable."-Shannon Sharpe last time I checked the 76 steelers were also very beatable, in fact, they lost 4 games in regular season then lost the AFC championship. So if we're not as unbeatable as the 76 steelers, does that mean we're going 9-7 this year???

Earl Thomas: The Seahawks are like James Brown

"It made me realize that we're different," Thomas said. "It really did, in a lot of ways. We're in sync and we're swarming the ball. We just have a different sound. It's funky and nasty; James Brown type stuff. It's very unique."

Pete Carroll on what type of players he values

"We’re looking for gritty guys. We’re looking for guys with great passion first of all, guys that are resilient and can bounce back that have a mindfulness that they want to prove something. That’s why we talk to a lot of our guys and feel they have a chip on their shoulder. I feel the same way. There are a bunch of us that share this mentality that you always have something to prove. It doesn’t matter what you’re up against and we’re not going to care what the obstacles are. That really defines grit. We’ve found that grit is one of great indicators of people that succeed."

Via PFT: "Talks have been occurring on and off, according to the source, for four months. The Seahawks have resisted due to concerns that giving a player a new contract with two years left on his current agreement would set a bad precedent."

Let's Make It As Tough On San Francisco As Possible

Bring the noise when The Niners huddle up. Let there be no communication when they have the ball. If we expect the Hawks to leave everything they have on the field, let's leave our voices there too.
