Today, we will be lucky to watch two of the best backs in the league. Marshawn Lynch and Adrian Peterson will be banging away all afternoon at CenturyLink Field.
I wrote about that for today’s paper.
Our Dave Boling talked to kicker Steven Hauschka, who has been on-target this season. Turns out Hauschka can do more than kick. He went to Middlebury College (this is a small school for very smart kids in Vermont), where he played Div. III soccer before later transferring to NC State, where he played one season with Russell Wilson.
There’s a lot more to Hauschka’s story, and you can read it here from Dave.
> ESPN writes about the Seahawks enjoying a long home stretch (as are reporters).
> Seahawks.com has five matchups to watch today.
> Seahawks.com also has a look at special teams, which will be a big deal Sunday. The best punt coverage unit in the league, which belongs to the Seahawks, will face the best punt returner and the best kick returner.
> Jim Souhan at the Minneapolis Star Tribune writes that the Vikings were right to move on from Percy Harvin and Antoine Winfield.
> The Star Tribune also says Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell is heading for a head coaching job.
> Lastly from the Star Tribune, they say Pete Carroll and the Vikings were a missed connection.
