If the Seahawks aren’t exactly desperate today vs. Arizona, it’s close

My game advance story in today’s News Tribune highlights how the Seahawks say they aren’t desperate today against first-place Arizona.

But it’s close.

“I don’t feel desperate. It’s another championship opportunity for us,” All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman said.

Sherman said desperate was “when I had negative-38 dollars in my account and I needed a ride home — but don’t play the players,” he said with a wry dig at the NCAA.

“That was college,” he said of the “good ol’ days” of his senior year at Stanford.

Richard Sherman live in studio on NFL Network; 5 questions for NFL’s Week 4

Good (no Seahawks) Sunday morning.

–Richard Sherman is live this morning of NFL Network’s Gameday Morning, getting a lot of love from the crew and in a bow tie putting stop moves on Michael Irvin in the studio:

Thanks to San Diego, Seahawks are mentally sharper for Broncos than they were a week ago

Talent is all over the NFL, of course. Every team has top players that are among the best in football.

The differences between teams are often within the mind.

That’s where the Seahawks may be better off now for Sunday’s Super Bowl rematch with the Denver Broncos than they were even a week ago.

It’s only the sixth game between Super Bowl foes in the following regular season, and the first in 16 years. The champions are 3-2 in the previous encores. And the Seahawks are far hungrier, far angrier, far more “serious,” to use their coach’s refrain all week, for

Another reason Marshawn Lynch looks so good early this season: Percy Harvin

Percy Harvin, not exactly plodding himself these days after being re-made and revitalized by offseason hip surgery, was talking about Marshawn Lynch on Thursday in the Seahawks’ locker room at the Virginia Mason Athletics Center. And the wide receiver’s face lit up as if a pass was coming his way with no one around him in an end zone.

“He’s got another step,” Harvin said of Lynch, who enters Sunday’s game at San Diego coming off a 110-yard rushing day in the opener against Green Bay. “I don’t what he did in the offseason, but it worked.”

Sunday Primer: Division title, raising funds for sick children and bacon ornaments

Good morning.

Sunday is here and it actually is a championship week. The Seahawks can clinch the whole regular-season kit, caboodle and home cookin’. A win or tie today, or a San Francisco 49ers loss or tie, will give the Seahawks the NFC West and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.

“If we do win, obviously there’s a lot of great things that happen after that, but you don’t really focus on that,” Russell Wilson said Thursday. “You focus on the moment, you focus on the now, and that’s trying to prepare today first, and then get to Sunday and play a great football game.”
