Seahawks vs. Giants: National media hail Marshawn Lynch, impale Giants

Marshawn Lynch’s punishing day powered the Seahawks’ record-setting rushing performance, and the national media and major newspapers were properly impressed. They also couldn’t help but take their shots at the New York Giants, who have  lost four straight after an epic second-half collapse. New York media showed about as much mercy on the Giants as the…

Seahawks: National media (with one exception) picking Seattle to beat Giants

Despite all the Seahawks’ recent struggles, the national media and major newspapers are lining up on Seattle’s side this week. With one notable exception: Arizona’s Bob McMenamin picks the Giants to upset the Seahawks, 23-20. All four of the Seattle Times writers picked Seattle. Same with’s experts. And on and on. My count 40-1. But before Seahawks…

Take 2: Seahawks fans should stop worrying and enjoy this crazy ride

BY BRIAN SULLIVAN Win or lose, Seahawks fans, enjoy this team. Transcend the nonsense. Ignore reports of discord. Russell Wilson may not be “black enough” for serial problem child, Percy Harvin, but he has exactly the right color, intelligence and character to lead his team to Super Bowl victory.

Seahawks: National media weigh in on Beast Mode II, Russell Wilson’s struggles

For once, the national media agree on one thing: Marshawn Lynch is a beast. The Seahawks can thank his hard-nosed style, as well as an opportunistic defense, for beating the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, 30-24.
