Under the headline "Heavy Lies The Crown," Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson graces the regional cover of this week's issue of Sports Illustrated.

Following two tumultuous weeks both on and off of the field for the team, Sports Illustrated writer Greg Bishop examines the Seahawks season up to this point and says that they are neither as good as everyone thought they might be nor as bad as some are claiming after getting off to a 4-3 start.

The regional cover will be sold in Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
