Tuesday Seahawks links

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday, everybody. With the Seahawks playing a Saturday game this week, they’ll kick off the week with a “Competition Wednesday” practice on Tuesday. I point this out mostly so you’ll all understand if/when I get the day wrong in something I write this week.

Are you a big Seahawks fan with a lot of money who wants to support a good cause? Well then, you can purchase a very expensive license plate for your car. As you probably heard by now, Seahawks and Sounders license plates became available last week, but Seahawks plate No. 1 was set aside, and is being auctioned off to raise money for A Better Seattle, Pete Carroll’s charity that works to end gang violence in Seattle.

In today’s Herald, Pete Carroll says his team can’t assume anything despite last month’s blowout win over the Saints. And from our friends at the News Tribune, a column on the high-caliber quarterback play in the playoffs, plus a look at things from the Saints side of things.

Larry Stone of the Seattle Times says the 2013 Seahawks won’t be the 2001 Mariners (dominant in the regular season turned postseason disappointments).

This weekend’s referee assignments are out, and it will be Terry McAulay running the show in Seattle.

And speaking of officiating, TheMMQB.com’s Greg A. Bedard looks at the decrease in penalties during last weekend’s playoff game, a trend that could favor Seattle if it continues, especially if more crews let physical play go in the secondary, which was the case in Green Bay.
