There is a lot to say about the outcome of the “Monday Night Football” game. Most of it has to do with the refs. People have been asking my opinion all day, and it can be summed up like this: This whole thing kinda sucks. That’s … kinda all I got. With the refs and their union talking for the fourth straight day, maybe something will work itself out. Hopefully. Would be tough to go through another week like this. So, plenty more to say, but with the NFL’s statement, one thing is clear: The game is over. We’ll still talk about it — on NFL.com we now have more than 25 (and growing) headlines, videos or links directly or […]
The Seahawks have three quarterbacks, and as the old saying goes, if you have three, you have none. Or something like that. I may have butchered it, but you get the idea. If you don’t have a clear starter, you don’t have any quarterbacks.

The Seahawks thought enough of Russell Wilson at rookie mini-camp to thrust him into competition for the starting QB job. Yes, even after signing free agent Matt Flynn earlier in the year. But as colleague Albert Breer tells us, little is settled with Seattle’s situation under center. That puts Wilson in an interesting position. Coach Pete Carroll has shown a propensity for allowing rookies (and freshman at USC) to thrive, and this could be another instance of that. He also loves open competitions. But here’s the thing about Wilson… he’s short. Oh, didn’t you hear? Really short. Like, 5-foot-11 (gasp!) I know, I know, it’s amazing they even let him play football at that height. It’s a charge that dogged […]
Seahawks G Robert Gallery will make his regular-season debut for the Seahawks today when they play the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Gallery had been sidelined with a knee injury but he is active for today’s game. The same cannot be said for WR Sidney Rice, who is still battling a shoulder injury.
