Seattle Sports: What’s Being Said Jan 26th


Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Here is what is being said both locally and nationally about the Seahawks and Mariners.

New president Mather talks about need to win

"Obviously we need to win more games,” Mather said Friday in his first meeting with reporters after being named to his new position. “Take care of your fans, take care of the community, be a good community asset. But win more games and everything else happens a lot sooner."

Cano hopes to excite Seattle for baseball

"As a five-time All-Star, Robinson Cano has been one of the premier players in the Major Leagues for much of his career. But that career has been spent being one of many stars on the Yankees’ crowded stage, not the featured face of a franchise looking to make a new splash."

Doug Baldwin emerges as Seahawks new weapon

"The best undrafted receiver this side of Victor Cruz very quietly pieced together a solid season, catching 50 passes for 778 yards and tying for the team lead with five touchdown receptions. And the third-year pro has turned things up even more in the playoffs."

Seahawks’ Richard Sherman Is Much More Than Just Talk

"Long before the acrobatic tip that saved Seattle’s season, before the rant that cast him as villainous to some and refreshing to others, Sherman survived gang-infested neighborhoods to compile a 4.2 grade-point average and receive a football scholarship to Stanford, where he also ran track and earned a degree in communication."
