A three-game stretch of historic blowouts has turned Seattle into the team no one wants to play, but can the Seahawks go all the way?
rom defensive end Bruce Irvin to linebacker Bobby Wagner to running back Robert Turbin to a pair of seventh-round picks who made the 53-man roster, the Seahawks can look on the 2012 draft with pride for some of the gems they uncovered. Seven of the 10 players the Seahawks selected have become major contributors.
The Seattle Seahawks put up perhaps its most dominating performance in franchise history, rushing for a season-high 284 yards while creating eight turnovers and setting a team record for points.
Seattle Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and receivers Golden Tate and Sidney Rice finally have added the missing dimension for the Hawks, and their continued rise could result in a playoff spot.
After shutting down Cam Newton and the explosive Carolina Panthers, holding them to 190 yards and three points, Seattle now ranks No. 1 in the league in yards allowed and No. 2 in scoring defense.
The Seattle Seahawks drafted Bobby Wagner in the second round for his 4.68 speed and hoped he would be able to step right in as the replacement for David Hawthorne, another undersized middle linebacker. So far, so good.
Quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks offense continue to play very inconsistently, but they managed to get the winning touchdown late in the third quarter after Seattle cornerback Brandon Browner stole the ball from Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams at the Carolina 29-yard line.
