Russell Wilson Changes Agent – What Impact Will That Make?

Payday for me isn’t quite as close to an NFL salary as I would like it to be.

PHOTO: Is legendary 49ers quarterback Joe Montana becoming a Seahawks fan?

The last time we heard from legendary San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana it was back in June when he said that the Seattle Seahawks might become a dynasty. Maybe he’s just being polite, but Montana knows a thing or two about dynasties. He won four Super bowls with the 49ers. What’s he up to now?

Jon Ryan jokes about his recent problems punting for the Seattle Seahawks

Even the greatest athletes have off-games and dry spells. One time I swear I saw Michael Jordan miss a shot or two. Derek Jeter definitely struck out a couple of times, and even Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan has muffed a few snaps. As a matter of fact, Ryan has bobbled two snaps by Clint Gresham in recent weeks. The first one came against the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving...

Twitter Tuesday: A 49ers fan admits how great Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin is

We don’t care for the 49ers or their fans around these parts, but what’s right is right, and not all of them are terrible. For example, this past Thanksgiving I woke up and before finishing breakfast I learned that one of my new roommates is a 49ers fan. He’s a decent kid, so I promised that when I kill him in his sleep I would make it quick. He was cool about it so long as...

Seattle Seahawks: A path to stealing home field advantage

The NFC playoff picture is a whirlwind of speculation and uncertainty. A record of 10 wins isn’t going to guarantee teams like the Seattle Seahawks a spot in the postseason, and so the next two weeks are crucial for everyone.
