Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, Feb. 1 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
It's Fun To Have The Seahawks At The Pro Bowl
While likely every Seahawks fan would rather see Seattle playing in Super Bowl 50 as opposed to this past Sunday's Pro Bowl, quarterback Russell Wilson, cornerback Richard Sherman, defensive end Michael Bennett, linebacker Bobby Wagner, and return specialist Tyler Lockett provided plenty of entertainment at Honolulu's Aloha Stadium for the NFL's annual all-star game.
Wilson and Bennett earned offensive and defensive player of the game, Wagner laid out Sherman for a 22-yard loss on a wide-receiver reserve gone wrong, Lockett beat Sherman one-on-one on a perfectly executed fake punt, and Bennett recorded a must-watch mic'd up segment from the Pro Bowl practice field.
Those are just a few of the reasons why Conor Orr at NFL.com led his five things we learned from Sunday's Pro Bowl with a Seahawks mention. Of Seattle's involvement in Team Irvin's 49-27 victory over Team Rice, Orr said:
The rise of Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman and the Seahawks have coincided with two straight trips to the Super Bowl, which meant that we did not get the opportunity to see the NFL's most boisterous team living the high life in Hawaii. They did not disappoint.
Wilson was 8-of-12 for 164 yards and three touchdowns, helping Team Irvin get out to an early lead. Richard Sherman was -- predictably -- a ball hawk and closed a 10-yard gap in seconds to swat away a bomb to Amari Cooper. He also played offense, got a reverse, attempted to cut back across the field and lost 22 yards in spectacular fashion. Michael Bennett was in the backfield often, and he did the Nae Nae with a group of mascots midway through the third quarter. The Seahawks are still in a good position to return to the Super Bowl next year, but we'll be more than happy to take them in Hawaii.
