Sporting News Picks the NFL 2019 Division Winners – Where Do the Seahawks Fall?

It’s that time of the year when national pundits start to look ahead and pick records for teams around the league, as well as pick the winners of the divisions.

Sporting News is out with their 2019 predictions, and they have their picks in for the NFC West.

To the surprise of no one they have the Rams winning the division with a mark of 11-5, and then the Hawks and 49ers both at 8-8.

Here’s the complete rundown of who Sporting News likes along with the Super Bowl teams.

Report: Chris Carson Still Ahead of Rashaad Penny for the Seahawks Lead Back Job

Third-year player Chris Carson “continues to look like the best running back” on the Seattle Seahawks roster according to Michael Shawn-Dugar of The Athletic.
Originally a seventh-round pick out of Oklahoma State in 2017, Carson’s rookie season was derailed by injury but he broke out in a big way in 2018 with 1,151 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games.

2018 first-round pick Rashaad Penny has also looked good this summer though in Shawn-Dugar estimation, “he’s just not at the same level as Carson right now.”

Penny has time to make up ground with the regular season still over a month away, but at present, Carson seems to have a fairly comfortable lead in Seattle’s backfield race.

Seahawks Rookie DE L.J. Collier Suffers Ankle Injury

Seahawks rookie defensive end L.J. Collier is being evaluated for an ankle injury, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The team’s first-round draft pick left practice Tuesday on a cart. He was engaged with Duane Brown on a passing play when he went down in obvious pain.

Collier refused help off the field from the training staff and walked off on his own with a pronounced limp.

Former Seahawks Safety Earl Thomas Says He Doesn’t Regret Middle Finger at Carroll

Former Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is speaking out about the now famous ‘middle finger’ incident directed at Hawks coach Pete Carroll.

In an interview with ESPN’s Josina Anderson, Thomas said that he does not regret his actions, and that despite the incident he does hope to retire one day as a Seahawk.

“I don’t regret my decision,” Thomas said. “If my teammates felt like it was towards them, then I regret that part, but I don’t regret doing it to Pete.”

The superstar safety flipped Carroll the bird on the field, but it was the off-field histrionics that boiled over for Thomas, who believed that the coach and front office weren’t being genuine in their desire to re-sign him.

“It’s a business at the end of the day,” Thomas said. “I think my time just ran out. Pete and the front office, we just didn’t, they didn’t value me, I guess, like they used to. And I had just talked to coach Carroll. He was saying how he was trying to get me in their plans, of getting a new contract. But I got hurt the next week and I think I hurt myself too by my actions getting carted off the field. … I gave Pete the middle finger because I felt like he wasn’t being honest with me.”

Added Thomas: “I was basically talking s— to Pete because I knew what happened, because I had been through it before. I knew it was broke. Like when Pete came trying to act like he was concerned, I was like, You won, bro. Just kept moving.”

Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll Excited to Have a Healthy C.J. Prosise This Offseason

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says it has been “great” to see running back C.J. Prosise healthy this offseason according to John Boyle of seahawks.com.

A third-round pick out of Notre Dame in 2016, Prosise showed some promise particularly as a receiver out of the backfield during his rookie season but injuries have cost him most of his career up to this point.

He has been able to suit up for only 10 games the past two seasons while battling abdominal, ankle, and hip injuries. “To add him into the competition is really nice,” said Carroll. “We’re fired up about C.J. being back.”

That praise from his head coach doesn’t necessarily mean the 25-year-old Prosise will survive final roster cuts.

Many observers believe he will be the odd man out in the Seattle backfield, with veteran Chris Carson and last year’s first-round pick Rashad Penny seeing most of the carries and J.D. McKissic possibly being kept over Prosise due to his value on special teams. Releasing Prosise would save $475K in cap space.
