We’re going with midday links today, because, well, I was busy with other stuff this morning, including…

If you missed it earlier, the Seahawks had three players earn All-Pro honors: CB Richard Sherman and S Earl Thomas, who were named to the first team, and S Kam Chancellor, who got a second-team nod.

NFL Films looks at the relationship between Seahawks fans, Russell Wilson and the band Phish. Pretty fun little segment if you’ve got 15 minutes to kill during lunch.
