RENTON — Oddly enough, the play that best describes the Seattle Seahawks’ current woes on offense was a 34-yard completion.
PITTSBURGH — A sadness settled in here Wednesday night, floating down the rivers and over the bridges that lead to PNC Park, the jewel that provides an epic view of the skyline of a city that so wraps itself in its sports teams. One fan Wednesday evening dressed in a black T-shirt — weren’t they all? — that screamed, “When you play Pittsburgh, you play us all!”
NEW YORK — You can’t say he doesn’t look like much, because Dallas Keuchel’s beard is worthy of odes and homages, long and bushy enough to house a family of small mammals. “Go beard or go home,” they printed on T-shirts in Houston, where the silhouette of Keuchel’s mug needs no explanation.
RENTON — K.J. Wright didn’t know the rule. Neither did Pete Carroll. Even back judge Greg Wilson seemed to have it slip his mind.
SEATTLE — Someone get that man a towel and some icepacks. Break out the oxygen tank and IV bag. Maybe even grab a bottle of Recovery Water out of the refrigerator.
SEATTLE — What is it with the north end zone of CenturyLink Field, Monday Night Football and confused officials?
SEATTLE — Kam Chancellor saved the Seahawks half of a yard from their own end zone.
SEATTLE — The moments have been filled with hope for Danny Farquhar. As the 2015 season winds to a close, it will be one that he would like to forget.
SEATTLE — In one swing of the bat, Shawn O’Malley led his current team to a win and helped his former team move a step closer to the playoffs.
SEATTLE — Jerry Dipoto isn’t wasting any time. He used his introductory news conference Tuesday at Safeco Field to outline his initial priorities as the Seattle Mariners’ new general manager.
ATLANTA — If Jordan Spieth didn’t win the Tour Championship and the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus Sunday, then there should have been a Congressional hearing. An assault on the East Lake main gate by an angry, torch-bearing mob. At the very least, a strongly-worded letter to the editor.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — In forwards Obafemi Martins and Clint Dempsey, it often feels as though the Sounders are playing with a cheat code.
SEATTLE — With newcomers Tyler Lockett and Jimmy Graham leading the way, the Seattle Seahawks snapped a two-game losing streak — three, if we count the Super Bowl — in emphatic fashion on Sunday afternoon, besting the Chicago Bears 26-0 before an appreciative crowd of 69,002 at CenturyLink Field.
ANAHEIM, Calif. — The elimination came without much notice or discussion. It was expected and inevitable. Just another reminder of what the Mariners didn’t accomplish this season. The main goal of this team and every team in baseball — a spot in the postseason — went unrealized.
