John Schneider's wife Traci Schneider has to be a proud woman tonight.
The wife of the Seattle Seahawks General Manager has plenty to beam about. Whether it's focused mainly on their two sons, or the incredible roster John Schneider has put together, or even the ass-kicking Super Bowl victory they put on the Broncos,... Traci Schneider has plenty to smile about. John Schneider has helped to write the blueprint and architect the 2014 Super Bowl champions, and while there is plenty to marvel at, we here at PlayerWives are most amazed by the following:
- Marshawn Lynch for a 4th and a conditional pick
- Percy Harvin for one first rounder
- Hiring Pete Carroll after abysmal stints with the Jets and Patriots earlier in his coaching career
- Drafting Russell Wilson in the third round
- (our favorite) 21 of the 53 active roster players WERE UNDRAFTED FREE AGENTS.
No matter what stress and stuggles John Schneider encounters at work every day, he's seemed to overcome adversity and challenge as it arises. Similar to his efforts in the office, Scheider has done the same at home. John and Traci Schneider's older son, Ben,has been diagnosed with autism. The family has established "Ben's Fund," which helps to raise funds and awareness for families suffering from the diagnosis.

Malcolm Smith is having a hell of a Super Bowl,... and if there is a woman who can be called Malcolm Smith's girlfriend, you can bet she's enjoying this.
After pulling in a pick-six interception returned for a touchdown against Peyton Manning in the first half, Malcom Smith chimed in with a fumble recovery midway through the third quarter. After Seattle tacked on 7 more in the ensuing drive to push it to 36-0, the Seahawks appear to be well on their way to a Super Bowl title. With two impressive and momentum shifting turnover recoveries, Malcolm Smith may be in a heated race for MVP with teammate Percy Harvin. Considering we already know about Percy Harvin's girlfriend, we figured it was time to find out about Malcolm Smith's girlfriend or Malcolm Smith's wife.
Unfortunately, after exhausting our resources,... we're pretty sure Malcolm Smith's girlfriend doesn't exist (and we know that Malcolm Smith's wife doesn't). Smith, the Seahawks last pick in the 7th round of the 2011 draft, is probably best known as Steve Smith's brother. Before you get excited and line up your "Ice Up, Son," jokes, we should let you know that his brother is the bad Steve Smith, of former New York Giant and Philadelphia Eagle fame.
During his time at USC, Malcolm Smith was diagnosed with achalasia. Achalasia is classifies as a disorder of the esophagus, which prohibits food from progressing to the stomach. After suffering of months of weight loss from food getting stuck in the esophagus forcing Smith to throw up, he underwent surgery to help handle the disorder. While surgery did provide slight assistance, a strict diet has provided the most help.
His weight has clearly returned, and any esophageal issues are the furthest thing from his mind. Swallowing a couple Bronco turnovers are settling pretty nicely, no matter what diagnosis he may have.

Jermaine Kearse's girlfriend Marisa Ventura, not to be confused with Jennifer Lopez's character in Maid in Manhattan, is surely enjoying this game. Seeing her boyfriend catch a touchdown in the Super Bowl has to rank right up there with her other life accomplishments for Marisa Ventura. Though this game has been mostly dominated by the Seattle defense, Jermaine Kearse has provided one of the line offensive highlights for Seattle.
After joining her boyfriend on an NFL Network show this past week shot at Super Bowl Boulevard, Marisa Ventura was finally introduced to more of the world. Ventura, a fellow University of Washington graduate along with her boyfriend Jermaine Kearse, is currently a model, working for Ford, JE Model and Heffner Management. Marisa is very religious and attributes her successes, and Jermaine Kearse's successes, to God.
