The Seattle Seahawks may well sit at the top of the NFC West and be on a three-game winning streak, but that doesn't mean players are satisfied.

That was perfectly shown by wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who actually flipped off one of his own coaches during the Seahawks win over the Eagles this weekend, before throwing the first touchdown pass of his career.

Yes, that's a receiver throwing a TD pass to quarterback Russell Wilson, who became the first QB in team history to have a receiving score. Scroll down to see it...

Here's Baldwin's reaction to hearing the play call from offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell...

...and here is how the play worked perfectly.

Thankfully, Baldwin saw the funny side of things after the game and it seems the gesture towards his OC was made in fun, rather than anything serious.

“We’re in the f****** red zone, and you want me to throw the ball?” Baldwin said after the game with a laugh. “Throw me the ball…"

“It’s more funny than it is anything,” Baldwin added, via ESPN. “[Bevell] knows that when we get in the red zone, I want the ball thrown to me. I want to score touchdowns. And so, it’s like in that situation, him flipping the bird to me because now he’s got me throwing the ball to somebody else.”
