Friday Seahawks links: former NC State QBs reunite

When the Seahawks and Buccaneers face off Sunday, it will be a reunion of sorts for the two starting quarterbacks, who were teammates at NC State before Russell Wilson was told he wasn’t welcome back for his senior year. That’s the topic of my story in today’s Herald.

Todd Dybas of the News Tribune also takes a look at the Glennon-Wilson connection.

Tim Booth of the Associated Press looks at the high-profile cornerbacks on each team, who talked a lot of trash over Twitter earlier this year, but have been much more respectful this week.

On my blog, I had some quotes yesterday from Tom Cable on the team’s O-line struggles. Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times digs deeper into that topic.

USA Today’s Lindsay Jones has been in town this week, and she writes about how Seattle’s dominant D was built.

NFL.com’s Mike Silver picked the Seahawks to win the Super Bowl before the season started, and at the midway point, he’s sticking with that pick.

SportsOnEarth.com’s Dan Pompei says looks at Larry Fitzgerald’s non-crushing blocks on two Seahawks cornerbacks, and Pete Carroll’s response to those plays, and says the NFL may be seeing the changes it was trying to create when it made rules in recent years to make the game safer.

Greg Bedard of TheMMQB.com created a new formula to grade pass rushing this year, and through eight weeks, two Seattle rate in the top 10 on a per-play basis for defensive ends—Chris Clemons and Michael Bennett. As a team the Seahawks are also doing well on defense, ranking second in the league in Bedard’s formula. The O-line, however, is not doing so well, as you might expect, ranking 10 last in this formula.

Bill Barnwell of Grantland.com looks at where the read option stands halfway through the season, and while teams aren't gaining as many yards on those plays this year, it's far from being a fad that NFL defenses have figured out either.
