Monday Round-Up: Peter King introduces The MMQB; 12 Tour comes to a close

Posted Jul 22, 2013

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

SI.com's Peter King catches up with quarterback Russell Wilson on his rookie year and what to expect in 2013

Good morning, and here's what's "out there" for today, Monday, July 22, about your Seattle Seahawks:

Peter King of SI.com has launched The MMQB - a new website devoted entirely to the NFL. King lets you know what to expect from his new endeavor in this Q&A session and in this short video.

Bob Condotta and Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times continue the site's "15 questions in 15 days" training camp preview series by tackling the questions, "Can the Seahawks cut down in penalties in 2013?" and "What's the most important game this seaosn?"

ESPN.com NFC West blogger Mike Sando rehashes ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski's quarterback rankings, taking a look at how each NFC West signal caller fared against the quarterbacks ranked above them in Jaws' rankings. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, ranked No. 12 by Jaws, went 3-1 last season against the quarterbacks ranked ahead of him.

Sando also looks at three key issues facing each NFC West club as training camps begin to open.

NFLcom's Adam Schein has dubbed wide receiver Percy Harvin the team's most important player.

On Harvin, Schein writes: "In Minnesota, he infuriated many with his cantankerous personality, feuding with both players and staff. Plus, he couldn't stay healthy. But Harvin is an amazing talent. If he can be a good guy and stay on the field, he's the perfect speed receiver to team with Russell Wilson, someone who can spread the field for Seattle. If opponents have to respect the long ball, leaving fewer defenders in the box against Marshawn Lynch, look out."

John Boyle of the Everett Herald wonders if the Seahawks can handle the hype of the 2013 season.

Danny O'Neil of 710Sports.com continues his 2013 training camp preview with a look at how the Seahawks use their players at the safety position.

Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com names what he believes to be the best NFL assistant coaches under the age of 40, and Seahawks defensive passing game coordinator Rocky Seto is on his list.

Pat Kirwan of CBSSports.com has running back Marshawn Lynch on his list of backs he'd like to see eclipse the 300-carry mark this season.
