Seahawks game-day links

Ready or not, it’s game day for the Seahawks, so let’s get you caught up before tonight’s game in Arizona.

In today’s Herald, I look at the perceived struggles of the offense, which is actually doing pretty well considering the pieces missing. Also, take a look at how similar this year’s numbers are to last year’s. When you factor in that A. the Seahawks are playing with a beat-up line and will be getting Zach Miller back tonight, and adding Percy Harvin soon as well, and B. that last year’s numbers were inflated by that crazy three-game stretch in December, and the Seahawks should finish this year with pretty good offensive numbers.

Points per game (rank): 2012--25.8 (9), 2013--26.2 (9)

Point differential: 2012--+10.43 (3), 2013--+10.5 (3)

Total offense: 2012--350.6 (17), 2013--372.7 (10)

Rush offense: 2012--161.2 (3), 2013--157.7 (2)

Pass offense: 2012--189.4 (27), 2013--215.0 (24)

And speaking of Harvin, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the receiver will return to practice next week. That’s not much of a surprise considering Carroll talked about how close Harvin was to returning this week, but it will be interesting to see how long he needs from when he starts practicing to when he’ll return to game action.

Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle also looks at the offense, saying the Seahawks are in position to take off.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle times looks at Pete Carroll and Carson Palmer’s relationship. (If you missed it yesterday, I weighed in on that as well).

Larry Stone of the Times offers a case against Thursday night games.

John McGrath of the Tacoma News Tribune says doubts about Russell Wilson are ancient history, while Todd Dybas of the TNT looks at the strong cornerback play of each team.

Bleacher Report has a good breakdown of what makes Red Bryant so important to Seattle’s defense.

Seahawks.com looks at receiver Bryan Walters, who was signed to Seattle’s roster last week, and who is living the dream of playing for his home-town team.

Kurt Warner helps the NFL Network break down the games of tonight’s quarterbacks.
