A few days ago we learned that the Seattle Seahawks placed injured fullback Derrick Coleman on injured reserve after he broke his foot during warmups against the St Louis Rams. Running back Robert Turbin has been filling in for him but that’s not an ideal solution.
Yesterday the Seahawks hit on a more permanent replacement when they signed fullback Will Tukuafu to a contract:
RENTON, Wash. (AP) Robert Turbin figures he had less than 10 minutes to prepare for emergency duty as a fullback last week against the St. Louis Rams.
It was the first time the tailback had ever been asked to play the position. And yet, with starter Derrick Coleman going down with an injury in pre-game warmups, the Seattle Seahawks were desperate for a solution.
Turbin played 30...

The Seattle Seahawks (2-1) visit D.C. to take on the Washington Redskins (1-3) on Monday Night Football. Kickoff at FedEx Field is at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN.
The Redskins have looked inconsistent this season. The offense under Kirk Cousins kept pace with the Eagles for much of that game, but then the next week they got steamrolled by the Giants. The game’s final score largely depends...
RENTON, Wash. (AP) Even on the way to winning a Super Bowl with the Seattle Seahawks, running back Robert Turbin was never particularly satisfied with his role or production last season.
Turbin longed to be more than just a backup to Marshawn Lynch. He wanted to show what he could do if he was given a bigger opportunity to show his ability. A knee injury suffered during the year...

When it comes to custom fan jerseys, let’s just say they can be pretty hit or miss (in some cases, it’s an epic miss). Here we have a clever case of the former. To be fair, this could be considered cheating because this one probably didn’t require customization (Robert Turbin is a backup running back for the Seahawks). Regardless, well played, Random Seahawks Fan.
This week middle linebacker Bobby Wagner returned to practice for the Seattle Seahawks and we all breathed a collective sigh of relief. Wagner is unquestionably one of the most ferocious and underrated players at his position in the NFL and next to Earl Thomas is the most important piece on Seattle’s defense.
Wagner hurt his hamstring on a play during a scrimmage in which he brought...
The Seattle Seahawks front office has to make tough cuts as the NFL regular season comes near. The Seahawks have a tremendous amount of talent at every position so any player who gets cut is sure to be picked up by another team. With most injuries aside, below is my version of Seattle’s 53-man roster.
The Seattle Seahawks began training camp on Friday. To help keep you up to date on what’s happening at VMAC we will keep a running diary with the major stories from each day at camp. Here’s what’s been going on the first few days:
With all the talk about Marshawn Lynch’s holdout and Christine Michael’s explosive potential, one guy who often gets overlooked...
So the Seattle Seahawks were at the Knicks on Tuesday, and Robert Turbin rocked a shirt with Mona Lisa wearing sunglasses.
Two teams going in different directions will meet this Sunday in New York. This is a game that exemplifies two conflicting ideoligies. The Giants have just tried to get by the last two years and have had some really terrible drafts.They have been conservative, even by Giant standards. You can see what that got them. The Hawks have been progressive, taking risks and innovative.Their...
