Andre Johnson to the #Seahawks? Not likely, but not impossible under the right circumstances. Here's my take on Seattle's interest level in Johnson:

He's a big time talent, but the #Seahawks  should exit trade talks with the #Eagles  regarding DeSean Jackson. His ego could be in an issue in Seattle's run-first offense and his large cap number would be too much for Seattle to take on at this point.

Here's my take on why Jackson/Seahawks would be a bad match for +Football.com:

Love him or loathe him, Richard Sherman has quickly became the face of a loaded #Seahawks team built to contend for Super Bowl championships for years to come.

His confidence and swagger riles up opponents and fans alike, but Sherman is more than just a trash talker. He graduated from Stanford with a degree in communications and a 3.9 GPA. He was named to his first All-Pro team after leading the league with eight interceptions this season and has 20 picks in three full professional seasons. And most importantly, he's the unsung leader for the league's best defense and commands respect from his teammates.

When the #Seahawks host the #Saints in the NFC Divisional Round tomorrow afternoon, Pete Carroll better hope that a week off did wonders for Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle offense.

Lynch posted another 1,200+ yard season in 2013, but he's only averaging 64 rushing yards per game in the Seahawks last six games and hasn't eclipsed the 100 yard mark since a Week 10 win over the Atlanta #Falcons. During this rough stretch, the Saints held Lynch to only 45 yards rushing on 16 carries in Seattle's 34-7 win six weeks ago. Carroll's team needs a "beast mode" performance tomorrow to help hold off a playoff-tested New Orleans squad that has the talent to pull the upset.

My article on the  #Seahawks  looking for bargains once again on the free agent market.
 
Could the  #Seahawks  get even better with some free agent bargains?  #NFL

This Sunday's NFC Championship Game couldn't possibly feature better storylines.

The San Francisco 49ers against the Seattle Seahawks features two coaches with incredible animosity toward one another. Now, they are leading their talented teams from the NFC West into the ultimate grudge match, with a Super Bowl XLVIII berth on the line. The No. 1 and No. 3 scoring defenses in the NFL will both be on display against physical, run-oriented offenses in a battle that could turn into a blood bath at CenturyLink Field.

This should be outstanding cinema for those in love with hard-nosed, old-school football. Which team will take advantage of this rare opportunity and punch a ticket for New Jersey?

Both teams are well-coached and play very similar styles, so this will clearly be a game dictated by match-ups. Seattle will enjoy playing on its home turf for the final time this season and hopes to leave town on a winning note, but the 49ers have their sights set on returning to the Big Game after falling just short against the Baltimore Ravens last February.

With no distinct advantages for either team, from a player standpoint, here's a look at four critical questions that should have the most impact on whom leaves the field victorious and whom falls just short of earning a chance to play for the coveted Lombardi Trophy.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been under fire from the media following yet another sub-par passing performance against the New Orleans Saints, but the real blame for a suddenly anemic passing attack should fall on the shoulders of offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

Unimaginative, undesirable, and far too predictable play calling have hurt the Seahawks offensively for more than a month, and if Seattle has any intention of beating the visiting 49ers this weekend for a Super Bowl berth, Bevell has to step up his game and open up the playbook for his young signal caller.

After going through two "bonus" practices on Thursday and Friday, the Seattle #Seahawks will be watching closely this weekend to see who prevails in the NFC Wild Card games.

Seattle's win over the Rams last weekend clinched the top seed in the NFC, meaning that the Seahawks will face the lowest resulting winning seed from this weekend. Seattle will not face the Eagles regardless of who wins the Packers-49ers game at frigid Lambeau Field, but if the Saints manage to win in Philadelphia, that would set up a rematch from the Week 13 matchup between the Saints and Seahawks.

Which team should Seattle prefer to play from this group? All three have plenty of weapons on offense and capable quarterbacks, but each has its own specific weaknesses. I spent several hours looking over game film for the #Packers, #49ers, and #Saints and evaluated each team as a potential opponent for Seattle in the divisional round.

Seattle Seahawks columnist for Football.com
Introduction
Corbin Smith serves as a beat writer for the Seattle Seahawks on Football.com. After earning All-Northeast Hoosier Conference recognition in 2006 and 2007 as a running back/defensive end at DeKalb High School, Smith attended Manchester College and graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Secondary Education. An illness cut his playing days short and prevented him from playing college football, but he turned to broadcasting and sports journalism as a means to stay close to the game.
 
Previously, he served as a play-by-play radio announcer for WBKE and had his own sports talk show for Manchester College athletics in North Manchester, Indiana. After graduating in 2012, he taught 7th/8th grade social studies for one year at East Noble Middle School before transitioning toward a career as a journalist. Smith started his sports journalism career as a freelance NFL writer for Man Cave Sports during his time at Manchester and started writing for football.com in July 2013.
 
Smith currently resides in Indianapolis. When he’s not watching and analyzing football, he’s an avid weight lifter, enjoys jamming out to heavy metal such as Trivium and As I Lay Dying, and loves to draw comic strips in his free time.
Bragging rights
I'm not a bragger- but I did have multiple Division I football scholarship offers after playing at DeKalb High School in Waterloo, Indiana. Illness prevented me from playing in college, but I'm more proud of my accomplishments living life with Crohn's disease than I am about my football accolades.
