|Seahawks start atop AP Pro32 rankings (The Associated Press)||Tue, Jul 22 02:27 PM |
|The Seattle Seahawks start the preseason right where they ended last season, as the No. 1 team in the AP Pro32 NFL power rankings. In balloting by 12 media members who regularly cover the NFL, the top three teams in the AP Pro32 were the Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos. The Super Bowl champion Seahawks grabbed 11 first-place votes on Tuesday and had 383 points. ''The world champions are still intact and have the ability to repeat, but that's a long way off,'' said Pat Kirwan of SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com.||Yahoo Sports - NFL - Seattle Seahawks News|
|Marshawn Lynch gets to park his Lamborghini between two velvet ropes (Shutdown Corner)||Tue, Jul 22 12:18 PM |
|According to Twitter user @chuckbrezina, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was in Oakland, Calif. on Monday filming a movie.
But that's burying the real story when you see how and what Lynch parked.

You might not be Lynch's biggest fan, and he can sometimes make himself more difficult to like than he needs to, but when a guy parks his car (one that cost a few nickels short of $400K, mind you) out on the streets of Oakland, bookended by two velvet ropes as if his car is a nightclub, well, then you just say it: The dude is an original.
(Functional questions here: Does Lynch travel everywhere with those ropes or were they provided for him by the movie folks who might have daily access to such things? And if they are Lynch's personal ropes, do they fit into that car's trunk? Have they ever failed to prevent another car encroaching on his car's space? It makes the mind wander ...)
Thanks, SB Nation, for bringing this to our attention . Brilliant stuff.

|Seahawks fans want a statue of the Richard Sherman-Michael Crabtree tip (Shutdown Corner)||Tue, Jul 22 07:17 AM |
|Philadelphia has a Rocky statue. Pittsburgh has an Immaculate Reception statue. Detroit's getting a Robocop statue. Now Seattle wants in on the act.
Two Seahawks fans are trying to raise money to build a statue commemorating "The Tip," Richard Sherman's famous redirection of a pass to Michael Crabtree in January's NFC championship game. Sherman tipped the ball to Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith, killing San Francisco's last chance at a comeback in a 23-17 game.
The Tip sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl and vaulted Sherman into the American consciousness thanks to his immensely entertaining postgame interview. It might be the finest moment in Seattle sports history, and Seahawks fans Joe Michaels and Chris Bauer want it honored in bronze.
“That was a moment that was so perfect and so important to this city," Michaels told local radio station KJR. “We thought, if that moment meant so much to so many people, it’s worth celebrating in a big way like never before.”
Starting July 28, they'll be starting a crowdfunding campaign to raise $250,000 to build the statue at BuildTheTip.com . A YouTube video features a rough conceptual sketch of the statue:||Yahoo Sports - NFL - Seattle Seahawks News|
