Seahawks Thursday links

Good morning (barely), and welcome to a midday edition of what would normally be your morning links. I apologize for the delay, but there’s a really good excuse, namely that I’m an idiot. You see I left my computer charger at the Seahawks practice facility Wednesday evening, so was unable to finish compiling links at home this morning before my computer died. Anyway, you probably didn’t care, but just thought I’d offer up an explanation. Now, onto the links…

In today’s Herald, a column on the contrasting styles of Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll, and how Carroll’s relaxed approach is a good thing for the Seahawks this week.

The News Tribune with a column on Marshawn Lynch, who lets his game do the talking for him.

Speaking of Lynch, USA Today’s Tom Pelissero went to the Bay Area to chat with some of Lynch’s family and friends, and came away with a very good story. looks at Colin Kaepernick’s game and wonders if his desire to improvise will hurt the 49ers.

On the same site, Peter King had a conversation with Earl Thomas following Saturday’s game.

Doug Farrar of looks at the keys to victory for each team left in the playoffs, and says Seattle’s defenders need to stay in their lanes to stop the run.

The Associated Press looks at the measures the 49ers are taking to deal with crowd noise.’s Mike Silver looks at how Pete Carroll has turned the Seahawks into a top destination for free agents, not a remote outpost they avoid.

Also at, a Seahawks-49ers preview and prediction.

You may have read something I wrote a while back about how Seahawks and 49ers fans were raising money for children’s hospitals in both cities. Well a cool update on that story, both teams are matching donations, the 49ers up to $100,000, and the Seahawks up to $112,000.

And finally, from the parody site, a funny story on how Russell Wilson has accidentally inspired the 49ers with his positive, inspirational tweets. The story is obviously not real, not because of the content, but because the quote from Colin Kaepernick is much longer than anything the 49ers quarterback would really say to the media. And to warn you, there’s a bit of adult language in the story, so don’t click on it if that’s going to bother you.
