A morning link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks

Good morning, 12th Man.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today, Friday, October 11, about your Seattle Seahawks:

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times talks with Jim Wyatt, who covers the Tennessee Titans for The Tennessean, asking five questions and receiving five answers about Sunday's matchup at CenturyLink Field. Condotta also has the story on the big-play impact of second-year receiver Jermaine Kearse, says the Seattle secondary is not worried about the pass inference calls they accumulated last week, and passes along comments from assistant head coach/offensive line coach Tom Cable on the work of the offensive line.

Danny O'Neil of pegs Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner his person of interest heading into Sunday's game against the Titans. Verner shares the league lead in interceptions (4) and ranks first in passes defensed (11). O'Neil also says that last Sunday's loss to the Colts certainly has the defense's attention.

Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR AM has his report from Thursday, noting linebacker Bobby Wagner and tight end Zach Miller continue to miss practice time.

Doug Farrar of previews several Week 6 matchups, including Sunday's Seahawks game against the Titans. 

Brady Henderson of recaps a Wednesday conversation with center Max Unger on "Wyman, Mike & Moore." Unger is expected to make his return to the field this Sunday after missing the last two games with an upper arm injury.

John Boyle of the Everett Herald comments on quarterback Russell Wilson's poise in the pocket.

Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune notes wide receiver Jermaine Kearse is taking advantage of his limited opportunities.

Terry Blount of lists five players who have excelled and five players who need improvement on the Seahawks offense.

Pete Prisco, Pat Kirwan & Will Brinson of preview Sunday's matchup with the Tennessee Titans in this short video.

John McMullen of The Sports Network previews Sunday's game against the Titans, predicting a 31-17 Seahawks victory.

Nike's Team Jordan announced free safety Earl Thomas joined the family as an official Jordan Brand athlete and will represent the signature shoe line with Seahawks-themed cleats on gameday. Thomas joins Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree, Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley and San Diego Chargers defensive end Dwight Freeney as the only NFL athletes represented by the line.'s "NFL Buzz Index," which ranks the most popular NFL games based on site traffic, ticket demand, sales volume, and ticket revenue, has the Seahawks' game against the Tennessee Titans listed as the No. 2 most attractive contest of the week.

The Kansas City Chiefs will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for crowd noise set by Seahawks fans at CenturyLink Field earlier this season. The Chiefs square off against the AFC West division rival Oakland Raiders on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. A quick aside - I have a friend attending the game who's a Seahawks fan first, and who has pledged not to make a peep.

Here at, Digital Media Reporter Clare Farnsworth highlights quarterback Russell Wilson's ability to maintain his composure under duress, puts the focus on talking sports with Seahawks sideline reporter Jen Mueller, and writes about how the defense is approaching last Sunday's loss.
