Tuesday Seahawks links

What did four of the biggest plays in Seattle’s NFC championship game victory have in common? One of the key players involved went undrafted out of college. The fact that Jermaine Kearse, Doug Baldwin, Chris Matthews and Garry Gilliam all made huge plays in one of the biggest wins in franchise history underscores just how good the Seahawks are at finding hidden gems, then giving those players a real crack at winning a job.

Also in today’s Herald, a notebook leading off with the updates on Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas.

Dan Quinn appears to be on the verge of getting the Atlanta job, but Pete Carroll says that won’t be a distraction.

Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle looks at three things we learned and three things we’re still trying to figure out from the game.

From The MMQB, a look at the tricky formations New England has been using to fool defenses this postseason.

ESPN ranks every player on Seattle and New England’s roster from 1-106. This is meant to reflect best overall players regardless of position, not most valuable, which is why neither Tom Brady nor Russell Wilson makes the top five. This is an insider piece so you need an account to read it all, but the top five is: Rob Gronkowski, Marshawn Lynch, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, Darrelle Revis.
