The beauty of the bye: All Seahawks fully participate in practice 4 days before Super Bowl

SBinjuryreport128 It’s the beauty of the bye.

All Seahawks were full participants in practice today at Arizona State University — including All-Pro safety Earl Thomas. He separated his shoulder in the NFC championship game on Jan. 18 and was limited in practices last week. But he and Richard Sherman have yet to miss a game in their NFL careers, and they are not about to miss the Super Bowl.

Marshawn Lynch’s back injury is the same lower-back issue he’s had for years. It is common for the Seahawks to give Wednesdays and even Thursday’s off, yet he still has

Seahawks “Legion of Boom” on former member Brandon Browner: “It’s his competitive nature”

The “Legion of Boom’s” defector wants his former legionnaires targeted.

The Seahawks’ response? Of course he does.

New England cornerback Brandon Browner won Super Bowl 48 with the Seahawks last year. Here at Super Bowl 49, Browner is wanting to win another — while teammates on offense further injure Richard Sherman, who is recovering a sprained elbow, and Earl Thomas, who is healing a dislocated shoulder.

“At the end of the day, this is about the Super Bowl,” Browner told ESPN. “I’m gonna tell my teammates to go hit that elbow, go hit that shoulder. …

Earl Thomas’ anecdote for shoulder injury: “If my mental game is right my body just mirrors perfection”

The Seahawks are practicing today at their workplace for this Super Bowl week, Arizona State University.

Pete Carroll is scheduled to talk to the media for the second consecutive day at the Arizona Grand Resort at 1:45 p.m. Seattle time, with the following six players talking after him: defensive end Cliff Avril, wide receiver Doug Baldwin, safety Kam Chancellor, center Max Unger plus linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright.

Those many here at the Super Bowl who don’t talk regularly to Earl Thomas got a sampling of the All-Pro safety’s intensity and unpredictability yesterday upon the Seahawks’ arrival here in

Richard Sherman, as uninhibited as he’s been all season

Here’s a transcript of Richard Sherman being his most uninhibited all season today, taking on Tom Brady, the NFL for going after Marshawn Lynch for gold shoes while not expecting the league to punish the Patriots for deflated balls, and all sorts of glib comments.

As I said earlier, don’t expect such an unplugged performance next week in front of the international media mass that will swarm him hoping for more of this.

“I’m going to go cliche,” he joked.

Rare practice miss, “mental reps” for Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman full go 11 days before Super Bowl

After both All-Pros got hurt but kept playing in last weekend’s NFC championship game, it looked like Richard Sherman’s elbow would limit him this week more than Earl Thomas’ shoulder would. I mean, Sherman couldn’t even lift his left arm above his hip.

But three days later the opposite is true. Thomas sat out practice today while Sherman was full go.

Thomas has played in all 82 games since he arrived in the NFL as the Seahawks’ first-round draft choice in 2010. So even though he missed a practice for one of the only times of his career today

Richard Sherman: “No limitations” for him in Super Bowl; during games Tom Brady isn’t like “clean-cut” image

Today was vintage Richard Sherman. I mean, top-shelf, Grade-A, outspoken and genuine Sherman.

All over the place. And unlike anyone else.

First things first: the elbow he got banged and strained by Kam Chancellor on a hit out of bounds to end a run by Green Bay’s James Starks to begin the fourth quarter of Sunday’s NFC championship. Sherman stayed in the game but played the final period with just one arm, holding the other one into his chest.

Asked how his elbow was today, Sherman shrugged (yes, both his shoulder elevated equally,

You mad bro? Not with all these story lines in this Seahawks-Patriots Super Bowl

Good thing there’s still two weeks until the Super Bowl.

This Seahawks-Patriots pairing needs that long to fit in almost as many story lines as Richard Sherman has insightful/clever/inflammatory/entertaining quotes.

Wait, you don’t agree?

What, “You mad bro?”

That’s what Sherman directed at New England quarterback Tom Brady on Oct. 14, 2012, after Seattle rallied from being down 23-10 with 8 minutes left. Two touchdown passes from a rookie third-round draft choice named Russell Wilson beat Brady and the AFC-champion Patriots, 24-23, in a Northwest downpour.

That’s the last time these teams met heading into Super Bowl 49 on Feb.
