Seahawks turnaround, Marshawn Lynch’s silence: Seattle Times readers sound off

Seahawks What changed for this team? Great “W” by the Seahawks over the San Francisco 49ers. Only one thing bothers me: How do you explain the difference between the way the team played against Dallas and Kansas City and the Thanksgiving win, on the road no less, against the Niners? Kansas City practically ran at will. I hope this…

Chris Petersen’s chart, Marshawn Lynch’s fine: Seattle Times readers sound off

Chris Petersen Quit pointing fingers at coaches A few losses by a team never fails to effect the scornful jeers of fair-weather fans, armchair quarterbacks and self-anointed coaches blessed with hindsight, including sportswriters at The Seattle Times. Now the target is Washington coach Chris Petersen, who is on the hot seat over a single play call in a single…

Readers go Beast Mode over Marshawn Lynch, King Felix, UW complaints

Mariners Why Hernandez deserved Cy Young Felix Hernandez deserved the American League Cy Young Award. All the writers Larry Stone mentioned in his column (“Hernandez not winning Cy Young a stunner,” Thursday) who placed Felix second were from the Midwest or Southwest. Coincidence? I don’t think so. These writers made much of one outing against Toronto but failed…

UW, WSU ruining tradition, Seahawks-Raiders debacle: Times readers sound off

Huskies Don’t forget new Husky traditions Max Waugh’s letter to the University of Washington Athletics Marketing Department (“Husky lore no more, says longtime fan,” Monday) was right on point. As a UW graduate and long-time Huskies season-ticket holder and Tyee contributor, I support the coaches and players, but the actions by the athletic department are wearing thin. I…

Seahawks’ Russell Wilson, Huskies’ ugly uniforms: Seattle Times readers sound off

Seahawks Let’s hope Wilson’s grounded In one offseason Seattle has gone from league best to just above average, and it is bound to get worse before it gets better. After signing a starting secondary to contracts that eat into roughly 20 percent of the overall salary-cap space. one has to wonder how the front office will manage the…

Percy Harvin trade, Seahawks’ loss to Cowboys, hate in headlines: Seattle Times readers sound off

Seahawks That’s OK, Seahawks don’t need Harvin So, the Seahawks traded Percy Harvin to the New York Jets for a conditional mid-round pick? I know it is tough to keep your core together, as they mature into a roster full of all-stars. Percy wasn’t giving us what we thought he would. In contrast, he took what we do away…

Mariners’ swoon, NFL bad behavior: Seattle Times readers sound off

Mariners Valiant effort, but not enough Being close only counts in horseshoes. It is a pity because the Seattle Mariner late-season run for the playoffs was a valiant, but courageous attempt that came up short. But, this season produced a winning team for the first time in five years, and the fans showed their support by flocking through…

Mariners’ Fernando Rodney, Seahawks’ Percy Harvin: Times readers sound off

Mariners Contract extension was premature The Mariners extended the contract of general manager Jack Zduriencik in August based on the positive performance of the team. The team and fans depended on him to make the right moves around the trade deadline. He acquired Kendrys Morales, Austin Jackson and Chris Denorfia, but their offensive numbers have been dismal. Zduriencik failed…

NFL bad behavior, from Adrian Peterson to Roger Goodell: Times readers sound off

NFL controvery Don’t accept this Neanderthal behavior Nobody can be so naive as to believe that the recent rash of abusive behavior in the NFL is a recent phenomenon. It’s way past the time that this Neanderthal behavior can be passed off as “boys will be boys.” We can’t allow a creeping acceptance of what should be unacceptable. Nothing…

Seahawks dominance, 49ers drama: Times readers sound off

Seahawks Physical dominance is only one factor After that great opening salvo by the Seahawks in Thursday’s 2014 curtain raiser, who’s left in Seattle who doesn’t think we’ll repeat as Super Bowl champions? Along the entire range of defining attributes, from character to physical dominance, the Hawks seem to have it all. Alas, many a great team, including the…
