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 - Tuesday, November 19 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Former Seahawks linebacker Dave Wyman of outlines six plays from Sunday's win over the Vikings that defines "The Percy Harvin Effect."

Danny O'Neil of shares three things we learned and three things we're still trying to figure out following Sunday's win over the Vikings. O'Neil also takes stock of where the Seahawks sit through Week 11 and of where its roster sits as the team heads into the bye week.

Brady Henderson of writes how the Seahawks have returned to their run-stopping ways the past two weeks.

John Boyle of the Everett Herald says the Seahawks know their 10-1 start to the regular season won't mean much if the club can't keep it going after the bye week.

Terry Blount of highlights some key numbers as the Seahawks head into their bye week, noting the team's franchise-record 13 consecutive wins at home are also the longest active home winning streak in the NFL. The Denver Broncos are next-closest with 12. Blount also passes word that cornerback Brandon Browner is expected to miss at least four to six weeks with the groin injury he suffered against the Atlanta Falcons.

Art Thiel of says head coach Pete Carroll and the Seahawks want to and can be get better than they already are down the stretch.

Silver writes, "In his fourth season in Seattle, Carroll has assembled an NFL team of his dreams -- a chillingly efficient, potent, unflappable and well-rounded outfit that appears to be nowhere close to peaking."

There was some practice squad shuffling late Monday afternoon, as quarterback B.J. Daniels was added and offensive lineman Zach Allen was released. Daniels was released from the 53-man roster over the weekend to make room for left tackle Russell Okung, who came off the team's Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list.

"Bussell Wilson," the short bus turned Seahawks tailgating machine, won the auction for the first Seahawks No. 3 license plate. The price tag? Only $15,533. But that's chump change compared to what the No. 12 plate went for - a whopping $42,299.
