  1. The Jermaine Kearse will get him, but only in practice.

  2. DisplacedSeahawkFan says:

    Nooooo! In the words of Charles Barkley this is “turrible!” Seriously, though, I’m just superstitious enough to believe this could hurt him next season. Moreover, despite the love he gets from us, and his other fans around the league, I wonder if he won the Madden cover because so many people want to see him fail and have a bad season.

  3. PHXHawk says:

    Gotta admit I was nervous about the curse too, but then I remembered that the Sports Illustrated curse didn’t affect us last year after any of the covers featuring the Hawks. Not that I’m superstitious.

  4. I believe some haters voted for him, so he would so he can be cursed.

  5. montanamike2 says:

    If your worried about this curse, then you must be scared of the Cambell’s soup commercial too.

  6. MoSeahawk12 says:

    Great comment Snappa. I see what you did there.

  7. montanamike2 says:

    I guess were not invisible to the rest of the country anymore.

  8. Ray_Maines says:

    MM2: No, we can’t play that card anymore.

  9. Ray_Maines says:

    YeeHaw!! The SeaHawks just won the Superbowl, for about the tenth time. Yesterday afternoon they beat New Orleans and the Santa Clara 49er’s, and tonight was the SB. Awesome!!

    A few days ago I impulsed a $30 BluRay two disk set from Costco that has the network TV coverage of the the two play off games on disk one, and the the Superbowl on disk two. The best $30 I’ve spent in a long time.

    I thought it was funny the other day when the Seattle Times poll question was who’s the better trash talker, Gary Payton or Richard Sherman. Beyond the smack talk, both players bring a certain swagger that breeds confidence in their team mates. That being said, I’m amazed at how little press Kam is getting despite his performance throughout the playoffs. We’re fortunate to have 3 all pros in the secondary but when you hear Pete talk about his vision he references a circle of toughness that carries throu all 3 phases. Kam (and Marshawn) are where that toughness begins.

  11. Ray_Maines says:

    As long as I’m here and seem to have the blog to myself, let me repost something from the last thread that really belongs on this thread.

    And I quote…

    RS really is good at life. He’s got fifty years to go, but he’s off to a good start. I don’t think Skip Bayless has ever been on the cover of anything has he?

    Close quote.

    Way to go Mr. Sherman, all pro CB and Stanford graduate. Big fat contract, Superbowl ring, being recognized by the POTUS, doing commercials with Michelle Obama. Not bad for a mouthy punk from Compton. You really are good at life. Tip of the hat to you, sir.

  12. bsinnitt says:

    Just ask Vernon Davis on offense or any of the DBs for San Fran who they don’t want to face on Sunday. I’m sure Kam and Marshawn are at the top of most lists.

  13. bsinnitt says:

    Sherman a definitely doing well for himself and it’s well deserved. He’s an outstanding player and a savy marketer when it comes to the media. LOB has a more than legit shot to be the best secondary to play the game. (A title currently held by the old Raiders and Steelers teams IMO)

  14. jawpeace says:

    good deal on the Costco Hawk Bluray. The road to Super Bowl 48 is $41.00 on Amazon. I could not spend that much for those three games as I already have them on DVD when they aired and paused out all the commercials. $30 or $10 a game for the Bluray is reasonable. I was wondering does the Bluray also has no commercials and does it have post game interviews? Like RS classic interview with Erin? Pre and Post SUper Bowl interviews? The Trophy celebration at 48?

    Thanks this will help me to decide to buy it or just stick with my DVD recordings.

  15. montanamike2 says:

    jawpeace i have the same dilemma, sometimes everything gets erased on my DVR when it acts up or goes down, i don’t want to spend the 30 bucks like Ray did because my wife will be all up in arms about it, so right now i have to stick with the DVR. That 30 dollars will go towards the purchase of a new Madden ps3 game and i’ll deal with the repercussions from her like i did when i bought my jerseys. I would love to have the blue ray discs though.

  16. montanamike2 says:

    I can’t tell you how long i’ve waited to buy a Madden game because our team wasn’t up to par the last decade and i can’t see myself playing another team. My friend just trades players but i’m a purist and we just won the SB!

  17. montanamike2 says:

    I hope our guards aren’t below average this year.

  18. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Some over at niner nation are posting that they want to see the Madden curse be a death curse on Sherman.

  19. GeorgiaHawk says:


    Watch the playoffs & Super Bowl again & you will see that Carp & Sweezy played above average down the stretch.

    Those two are the most physically gifted of all the o-line players & it looks like they are headed in the right direction.
    I hope they are anyways. Lol.

  20. montanamike2 says:

    Yeah that article is pointless, they’ve got Kam and Wilson as above average. Last i heard, when you easily could have broken P. Mannings rookie TD record but chose not to, and are the winning est QB for your first 2 years in NFL history with a SB to boot, then you’re more than a “game manager”.

  21. montanamike2 says:

    Kam set the tone in the SB right off.

  22. DFloydd says:

    I love Kam. Dude hits HARD but never illegal hits to cause injury. He makes anyone who thinks they can run a short slant his way PAY and think twice before doing it again. Just ask D. Thomas and V. Davis. Vernon Davis has got to be bummed every time he has to play the Hawks. When Kam laid him out in the NFCCG for the second time in two years he’s gotta hate playing Seattle. That’s probably why he’s holding out for a new contract. “If y’all want me to go against Chancellor twice possibly three times in a season yer gonna have to pay me!”. And I still think one of the unsung plays in the NFC champ game was Kam chasing down CK from behind in the first half. If Kaepernick scores on that play it’s a whole different outcome. But that’s what us great about the Seattle D. They never panic and adjust as needed. Great being a Seahawks fan. I mean how great is it that when the Offense is struggling or turns the ball over you don’t have to sweat it cuz you can trust the defense to either make a stop or get a turnover.

  23. DFloydd says:

    One if the best sound bites from the Superbowl Sound FX is hearing John Fox look at his offensive coordinator and say about Seattle D (paraphrasing here) “Dang. Those guys are fast. I think we underestimated their speed” or something to that effect. Ha! Loved it. He looked so lost on what to do when Seattle went up 23-0. I know Seattle played their best game of the year that day but I think part of it was arrogance on the Broncos side thinking since they had “the most prolific offense to play the game” it was going to be a cake walk. After that botched snap and a safety to start off the game in hindsight the game was pretty much over. They underestimated the Seattle D, Seattle O, and the 12th man at that game. Beautiful.

  24. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Although I agree with PFFs, overall team ranking I disagree with several individual player rankings.

    Wilson, Baldwin, Kam & Kearse, too low. Irvin, Okung & Unger too high.

    I don’t know if they just rank based on the regular season or if they include the post season too?

    I think what matters most is what a player, (injuries aside) is doing, (or not doing) for the team of late.

    Smith & Maxwell really came on strong at the end of the year.

    Irvin & Thurmond not so much.

    I do know that none of the three elite ranked players, (Thomas, Sherman & Lynch) would have been considered for the Super Bowl MVP award.

    So many other players were & that’s what makes this team so special. You never know when the next star ( or more like the next stars) will start shining bright.

    Who will be the next bright stars?

    I can’t wait to find out.

  25. GeorgiaRay says:

    Nicely put DF! To the point about the 12th man, sitting in the Met that night, I was stunned at the noise we generated with such a diluted fan base, between corporate attendees, Bronco fans and us…

  26. vichawkfan says:

    Watching and reading a lot of experts suggesting that SF has the edge over Seattle going into the season. Addition of Stevie Johnson and drafting a RB apparently is a plus even after subtracting some starting DB’s….nobody has said Harvin is basically new to team this year or we retained every starter. Oh and Kap can’t figure us out.
    Oh well….more fuel for the team.

  27. montanamike2 says:

    After watching the SB multiple times, it was quite apparent that the 12’s were in full force, nobody was ready for that.

  28. Ray_Maines says:

    jawpeace: No commercials, no interviews, and no parade footage either, but this link might help

  29. EzraMelech says:

    If anyone needs games from last season let me know. I have NFL game rewind, and work from a mac. Very easy for me to screen grab the games. They would be HD 720p for most part.

  30. LarryLee says:

    Kam was the first LOB they extended. I think that says that PCJS know exactly how valuable he was and is.

  31. ChrisHolmes says:

    Awesome. Finally, a big time Seahawk on the cover of the game.

    Time to destroy the ‘curse’.

  32. seaturkeys says:

    The curse will be proven mediocre.

  33. Larry Lee – Under the CBA they couldn’t extend Kam before Sherman. And ET had two years left when Kam only had one left. That math is easy to figure out. What I like is that they extend their own like this, who are core players, one year before they hit FA (like they will do with Wagner and Wilson next year).
