Just a heads up in case you had forgotten, apparently there’s some sort of football game going on in Seattle today. So while you wait for the clock to slowly count down to the Seahawks’ season opener, might I suggest a bit of reading.
First off, in today’s Herald, we’ve got a column on Russell Wilson heading into year three, which should see him take a big leap.
Also in the Herald, our game-day page breaking down the matchups, my pick, etc., and we’ve also got a notebook with the news from Wednesday.
From NFL.com’s Mike Silver, a look back at the 2012 meeting between the teams, but no, the focus isn’t on the ending of the game, but rather the first half that saw the Seahawks sack Aaron Rodgers eight times.
From TheMMQB.com, a very cool story on the GMs of both teams, who used to be coworkers in Green Bay.
USA Today’s Tom Pelissero looks at the pitfalls that get in the way of a repeat.
Grantland.com wonders if we’re entering the “Seahawks era” in the NFL.
