Terrell Owens returns to the NFL with Seattle Seahawks

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

seth-edward-oneal.jpg

Yes, Terrell Owens is coming back to the NFL.

And he’s hoping the Seattle Seahawks’ search for another veteran wide receiver for the 2012 NFL football season will get him off the sidelines. The 38-year-old Owens had a tryout with the Seahawks on Monday morning, and hours later the team announced it had agreed to terms with the former star receiver. He hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2010 season with Cincinnati, when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns.

Foxsports.com first reported the agreement between Terrell Owens and the Seattle Seahawks. Terms of Owens’ contract weren’t available. Owens sat out the entire 2011 season following surgery on his left knee and failed to receive any offers. He then had surgery on his left knee and didn’t receive any offers to play last season.

The veteran Terrell Owens initially made his return this spring playing for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns while playing eight of 11 games, but was released and lost an ownership stake in the team in May.

Owens, a third-round draft choice by San Francisco in 1996, has started 201 of the 219 regular-season NFL games he has played in his career. He has 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns – the second most in league history.

His nine seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving and…

Can T.J. Houshmandzadeh help the Seattle Seahawks win Super Bowl XLIV after stealing him from Cincinnati?

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

In case you haven’t heard, we already crowned a winner from the NFL free agency period.

When the 2009-10 NFL football season kicks off, wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh will be suiting up for the Seattle Seahawks and help them get back on top of the NFC since losing star running back Shaun Alexander.

With T.J. Houshmandzadeh on board, Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will now have a go-to-guy downfield, something that has been missing in Seattle. And if the rest of their receiving corps can stay healthy, the Seahawks passing game will have the potential to be one of the best in the NFC, rivaling Dallas’ and New York’s.

T.J. HoushmandzadehSo what prompted Houshmandzadeh to choose the Seattle Seahawks? He believes this is the team that gives him the best opportunity to succeed. Getting paid $40 million for five years with more than $15 million guaranteed isn’t so bad either.

”I just felt it was the best destination, it was the best team, it was the best choice for me,” T.J. Houshmandzadeh said.

Houshmandzadeh was initially pressured by the Cincinnati Bengals to stay on their side of the field, specifically, quarterback Carson Palmer. I can’t blame the guy though, with Houshmandzadeh out, he’s left with an overpaid guy who just can’t catch shit anymore and spends…

In case you didn’t know, Shaun Alexander won’t be playing for the Seattle Seahawks next NFL Season

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

Yup, you probably know this by now.

Former NFL Most Valuable Player of the Year Shaun Alexander was given an abrupt exit from the team by the Seattle Seahawks after a somewhat disappointing, injury-plagued year for the NFL running back.

With STILL months away from the brand new 2008-09 NFL football season, the Seahawks seem intent on upgrading their running game and the first order of business for them is to get rid of the aging veteran.

The Seattle Seahawks organization claimed that letting Shaun Alexander go was a tough one. Of course, after watching Alexander limp off the field last season, we nowknow that what those guys are saying are nothing more but a load of you-know-what.

Shaun AlexanderAfter his rather shocking release from the team, Shaun Alexander issued a statement to address exactly that. Here are some of the words he had to say.

”We received the news from the Seahawks’ front office today that I have been released. While it really isn’t a surprise, this news marks a major transition in my life. I started my NFL career in Seattle and hoped I could remain with the team through the rest of my days as a player. That said, things change.”

”I will be playing for another NFL team this fall, and doing…”

Seattle Seahawks kicked Shaun Alexander out

Friday, April 25th, 2008

seth-edward-oneal.jpgOf course, many of us saw this one coming.

As early as the first week of March, still a lifetime away from the brand new 2008-09 NFL football season, people were already anticipating Shaun Alexander’s departure from the Seattle Seahawks.

Why? After the Seahawks signed two new running backs, it was apparent that Shaun Alexander is being set-up to an abrupt exit. Although this guy was a former Most Valuable Player awardee, his stint last season was… well… PATHETIC to say the least.

Last Tuesday, the anticipation ended. After a doctor’s appointment to check on his wrist and a couple of phone calls to make sure he was cleared, the Seattle Seahawks announced that their Shaun Alexanderleading rusher in franchise history was gone, given his unconditional release.

Seattle Seahawks president Tim Ruskell said, ”One of the toughest decisions I’ll ever have to make.”

Of course, we know better.

Shaun Alexander arrived in Seattle in 2000 to play backup to Ricky Watters. In 2003, he led the Seahawks to become a perennial playoff team. He averaged 1,500 rushing yards and 19.6 touchdowns in his first five seasons with Seattle.

In 2005, he led the Seahawks to the Super Bowl, setting a league record for touchdowns with 28 and becoming the first ever Seahawk to be named the NFL Most Valuable Player of the Year.

”I started my NFL career in Seattle and hoped I could remain with the team through the rest of my days as a player,” Shaun Alexander said…

If Belichick’s Spying Cameras screwed the Jets, these Spying Cameras ALMOST Killed the Seattle Seahawks

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

My my, talk about a season of controversial cameras eh?

With the 2007-08 NFL football season kicking off with the ‘spying camera scandal’ that the New England Patriots found themselves in the middle of, perhaps it is only fitting that we have yet another incident involving spying cameras mid-season.

Yes, and this time, the Seattle Seahawks are the victims. And while the New York Jets probably lost their first game of the season because of Belichick’s spying cameras, these cameras that were on the Seahawks’ asses ALMOST got them killed. Now I don’t know about you but this spying camera thing probably has gotten a little too far. Hee hee…

Seattle SeahawksIn a Sunday night when the New Orleans Saints finally scored their very first win of the season, beating Seattle 28-17, the spying cameras that plagued the league when it kicked off last September attacked again.

TWICE, the officials stopped the game after the overhead cameras directly on top of the football field dropped as if it had Seattle Seahawks players on target. The first one almost smashed Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck when he exited his team’s huddle to talk on the sideline with Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren.

And as NBC went to a…

What will Happen to the DUMB Seattle Seahawks now?

Sunday, October 1st, 2006

Shaun Alexander is out indefinitely. What will happen to the Seahawks now?

On Sunday, the defending kings of the NFC Conference, yup I’m still talking about the Seattle Seahawks, will go head to head against the red hot Chicago Bears led by a young quarterback named Rex Grossman.

The Chicago Bears are so hot that people are starting to question the Seahawks’ dominance of the NFC. After Shaun Alexander went down, the answer to that very question became even more clear.

The Bears are definitely on their way in dethroning Seattle.

There’s only one problem though. The Seattle Seahawks, even without Shaun Alexander, are still good. This team still has enough weapons to be the best team in the NFC.

After all, they still have the best passing offense in the conference with Matt Hasselbeck throwing to Darrell Jackson, Bobby Engram, Nate Burleson and Deion Branch.

That’s a dangerous group for opposing secondaries to have to deal with. All those guys are extremely talented and can…

Deion Branch Traded to the Seattle Seahawks

Tuesday, September 12th, 2006

The infamous ”Deion Branch strike” is finally over.

THAT and his tenure with the New England Patriots. Yep, the Seattle Seahawks have completed a trade for New England Patriots receiver Deion Branch, finally ending the wide receiver’s stupid episode in Boston.

The Seahawks confirmed the acquisition of Branch for a 2007 draft pick, but did not disclose the round of the choice. Rumors has it that it would be Seattle’s first-round pick.

I guess Mr. Deion Branch found a good team for a trade deal after all.

Last Aug. 25, the New England Patriots gave their best wide receiver, yep we’re talking about Deion Branch here, permission to negotiate a contract with other teams and seek a trade until 4 pm on Sept. 1. New England would have had to work out a trade to its satisfaction.

Friday passed and the Patriots claimed no trade has been consummated. Yep, as you would imagine, Deion Branch was PISSED…

Bears V Seahawks in 2011 NFC Divisional Match-Up

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

seth-edward-oneal.jpgMy oh my, can the Seahawks surprise the nation for the third straight week?

Probably not because this time, they’ll be on the road. That’s right, the Chicago Bears will host the Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round of the 2011 NFL playoffs.

The Green Bay Packers’ defeat the Philadelphia Eagles have them traveling to Atlanta to play the Falcons, this left the Chicago Bears to face the Seattle Seahawks, a team riding with all sorts of momentum in the last three weeks.

The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a 41-36 win of the defending super bowl champion New Orleans Saints. The most notable play from this game was Marshawn Lynch’s 67 yard touchdown run in which he got the Seahawks crowd in a frenzy.

Good thing the Chicago Bears appear to be at full strength without any significant injuries. Despite not playing in Week 17 vs Green Bay, wide receiver Earl Bennett is ready for the playoff opener at Soldier Field.

23-20 was the score of our previous meeting earlier in the season at Soldier Field. Jay Cutler was not at his best completing 17 of 39 passes. The next week the Bears played the Redskins, a game in which Cutler threw 4 interceptions all to the same player.

The Bears’ gunslinger quarterback is playing in his first NFL playoff game. In the Oct. 17 game, Cutler got sacked six times and endured his offensive coordinator’s ineffective 47-pass play and 12-run play game, including 11 straight pass plays at one point.

As for Seattle’s senior quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, he brings…

Hasselbeck angrily carried the Seahawks past the Saints

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

seth-edward-oneal.jpgHe was angry, and the Saints defense were unfortunate enough to meet him on the wrong day.

Days before the Seahawks upset the defending champions Saints from the 2011 NFL playoffs, Matt Hasselbeck was not happy. This is something people around the Seattle Seahawks have come to cherish over the years – those moments when the franchise quarterback does not smile, his words come short and he grumbles through practices.

Somehow Matt Hasselbeck always plays best when he feels the slights. And it had been a week of affronts that proceeded Saturday’s 41-36 vanquishing of the New Orleans Saints. Nothing was worse than coach Pete Carroll’s decision to keep him from playing the game last weekend that got the Seahawks to the playoffs in the first place. Hasselbeck’s damaged hip hurt so much that day, yet he begged to play; insisted he could play only to be rebuffed.

Saturday’s contest might have been his last game for the Seattle Seahawks in the city he’s made his own, so there was no doubt he would play against the Saints. No doubt the old anger would flame. No doubt he would fire passes through the afternoon no one could have ever seen coming.

We just beat the world champs,” he said after it was over. “And we worked hard to do it,” he continued. “We prepared and we believed,” he added. And finally: “I’m emotionally drained right now, I’m physically drained right now. It was just satisfying.”

All around the Seahawks locker room, players testified about…

Saints visit the Seahawks for NFC Wild Card Game

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

seth-edward-oneal.jpgCan the Seahawks surprise us for the second straight week?

The New Orleans Saints are on the road this weekend as they face the Seattle Seahawks in their 2011 NFL wild card round match-up in the NFL playoffs.

The New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl last year, however if they are going to repeat as NFL champions they’ll have to win a bunch of road games. The Saints enter the post-season as a wild card team and, because of the Seahawks winning their division despite having a worse record than New Orleans, the Saints will have to travel to Seattle this upcoming weekend to face the Seahawks.

Still, that’s not that bad of a match-up for New Orleans as, like I pointed out, these Seattle Seahawks are the least deserving team in the playoffs this year. The Seahawks enter the post-season with a weak 7-9 record, the winners of a division that lacked a talented team.

The Saints are 11-5 overall this season, good enough for the 5th seed in the NFC, and they have been very effective on the road. With a visiting record of 6-2, despite not being the home team on wild card Weekend, there is every reason to expect the Saints to beat Seattle.

For the most part, the Saints gave us what we expected this season. The defending champs aired the ball out as always and produced the No. 3 passing attack in the league. Drew Brees threw for 4,620 yards and 33 scores, marching the offense downfield game in, game out.

However, largely because of injuries to Pierre Thomas, Reggie Bush and…
