Chargers 25 – Seahawks 17

No one expected this to be an easy game for Seattle. The Los Angeles Chargers have been playing fantastic football this season, and quarterback Philip Rivers is, well… Philip Rivers.

While the Seahawks have also been playing well, most knew this game was very important for both teams, and they would come out swinging.

The first drive of the game showed how improved the Seattle offense has been in the last few games. Taking over 8 minutes off the clock, and going 75 yards down the field, the Seahawks drive was capped by a beautiful touchdown catch by wide receiver Jaron Brown.

The Detroit Lions Pride Report – Week 8

Sonja Greenfield Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

Seahawks 28 – Lions 14

Normally when you come to read these articles, I do a quick recap, shout out a player of the game, shout out the poor performer of a game, and preview the next game. This week, I’ll switch it up a bit.

I spoke with our Seahawks reporter, Dayna O’Gorman, earlier in the week about this game. Due to technical issues, I wasn’t able to get posted in time. This week, I’ll take our conversation, and see how our predictions matched up!!

But before I get going, let me just say that coming into this game, I felt that these teams were pretty evenly matched. I felt that the winner would possibly be able to compete for a playoff spot in the NFC. I still feel that way, but the Lions just looked really bad today.

Seahawks know your enemy: The Detroit Lions

There are a lot of football games every week, and when you only report regularly on one, it’s hard to keep up with all the comings and goings of each team. Other than raiding the Seahawks free agent closet by signing tight end Luke Willson and cornerback DeShawn Shead, I felt I had lost track of the Lions as a team.

I decided to sit down with OTFB’s Detroit Lions reporter, Sonja Greenfield, to get some insight about Seattle’s upcoming game in Detroit.

DO: The Lions are currently 3-3 on the season. Is this where you thought they’d be at this point?

SG: I have to answer this in two parts!  So, in the off/preseason I had the Lions going 11-5, and around this time they would have been 4-2.  But after the Jets came and curb stomped the Lions, I had to adjust my expectations!  3-3 is pretty much where I thought the Lions would be.

Seattle Seahawks, life after the LOB

Los Angeles Rams 33 – Seattle Seahawks 31

The Seattle Seahawks played the current divisional leader, the Los Angeles Rams, at home on Sunday. Although the game ended in a close loss for Seattle, the fans got a glimpse of what life after the LOB would look like, and it wasn’t all bad.

Hey, remember when teams used to be able to play defense? Yeah, me too. Good times. Well, the Seattle Seahawks had one of the best of all times. The Legion of Boom will go down in history for their stealth-like quality that destroyed offenses, including the highest scoring offense of all time, the Peyton Manning led 2013 Denver Broncos.

Seahawks rise above drama, get their first win

Seahawks 24 – 13 Cowboys

The Seattle Seahawks had a lot of what could have been distractions the days prior to their week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys. However, once on the field, they were completely focused and ready to get their first win.

To be totally honest, I waited a little longer than normal to write this article. In fact, this is the second time in a week I’ve paused my writing “just in case”. That “just in case” would be Seahawks safety Earl Thomas.

It has been well documented that Thomas is unhappy with his contract, including a holdout during the preseason. However once he arrived at the facility, ready to play week 1, most fans thought that would be the end of the drama. How little did we know.

Bears defeat Seahawks but have glaring questions

Wanda Wiedman Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Seahawks 17 -24 Chicago

The Chicago Bears pulled off a win at home in Soldier Field against the Seattle Seahawks and it felt good!

It has been long overdue, the Bears won a game at home in regular season. So you could imagine my surprise when some fans expressed disapproval instead of praise.

The Seattle Seahawks entered this game with a depleted defensive core. The absence of K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner was definitely felt on both sides of the ball. But it was the Chicago Bears defense that sealed the win for the team.

However, there are a few glaring questions that need some answers.

The banged up Seahawks face Chicago Bears on MNF

Dayna O’Gorman Senior Sports Editor

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

The Seattle Seahawks are once again on the road this week, heading to Chicago to face a strong Bears team.

The Chicago Bears have improved greatly this offseason. We saw that improvement in their opening game against Green Bay last Sunday. Due to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers pulling off a Superman level performance last week, the Bears didn’t get the win, but the strength of the team can’t be denied.

After watching both the Chicago and the Seattle games last week, I should be quite worried for the Seahawks. Chicago looked really good in its matchup against Green Bay. But its Monday night, kids. And we know what that means. Its Seattle’s favorite day of the week.

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas ends his hold out

Senior Sports Editor

By Dayna O’Gorman //@DaynaOG

Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas has been holding out during the preseason looking for a contract extension or a trade. Today, that hold out ends without either being accomplished.

Thomas announced he will be returning to his team, but his announcement carried a bit of anger with it.

Even with loss, much to be pleased with in Seattle’s third preseason game

Seahawks Reporter, Senior Sports Editor

By Dayna O’Gorman //@DaynaOG

The Seattle Seahawks lost to the Minnesota Vikings last night, 21-20,  losing their third preseason game. However, even with the loss, most Seahawks fans were very pleased with what they saw during the game.

No one will argue that Seattle had a lot of work to be done after watching the first two preseason games. Concerns about the offensive line still lingered. The run game, while looking much improved, still lacked in many areas. The defense, which had a major overhaul in the offseason, seemed to have holes. However, many of those issues seemed to shrink after this last game.

Any Seahawks fan will tell you that the offensive line has been the biggest problem for the team over the last few years. Seattle traded for offensive tackle Duane Brown toward the end of last season, then added guard D.J. Fluker in the offseason. That, along with consistency in the other positions, seems to be turning the worst offensive line in football into a solid group.
