The Seattle Slew

Seattle Sports. Through thick and thin

Team Pete Carroll or Team John Schneider?


First things first, I may be taking a break from the blog for a little while. My wife and I are planning to go to Europe for our honeymoon this summer, and I don’t plan on being on the computer very much at all. I hope to update the blog after the draft though, and obviously before the season starts. Please bookmark my blog, and sign up for the newsletter […]

It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye…or Maybe Not


It’s day 5 of NFL free agency, and its been one of the craziest free agency periods I can remember in a while. Maybe its because there are literally millions of 12th men/women now, and people are overreacting to every little transaction and rumor that exists.

Who knows, maybe this is the year the Mariners make some noise come September? At […]

What’s Next? We Are Just Getting Warmed Up


  “We are just getting warmed up” -Pete Carroll. Those were the ominous words spoken by championship coach and current/future Seattle legend Pete Carroll at the championship celebration when he addressed the thousands of crazed 12th men and women.

Now that we’ve gone and won the Superbowl, we can all laugh at the terrible things that have happened to us in hindsight.

Great, we have a ring more recently than your team, and our team is still better than yours. Sticks […]

Don’t Call it Moneyball. The Seahawks Blueprint for Success


  The Seahawks win the Superbowl, draft day approaches and everyone wants to know the secret ingredient. Where does coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider find their hidden gems? 21 of the 53 man roster is made up of undrafted free agents, and many lower draft picks. Guys like Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor were drafted in the 5th round. Superbowl MVP Malcolm Smith drafted in the 7th. Is […]
