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


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, Sept. 17 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Sunday Night Football Featured on The Tonight Show

In honor of the Seahawks Sunday Night Football matchup with the Green Bay Packers, NBC's 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' featured the two teams in Fallon's reoccurring segment, 'Tonight Show Superlatives,' which makes light of the faces players make as they pose for headshots for their respective teams.

In Fallon's crosshairs last night were Packers offensive guard Josh Sitton, offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga, cornerback Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, and defensive tackle B.J. Raji, as well as Seahawks offensive guards J.R. Sweezy and Mark Glowinski, punter Jon Ryan, quarterback Russell Wilson, fullback Will Tukuafu, and running back Marshawn Lynch.

The full video is embedded for you above, and here's a sampling of what Fallon's show came up with for a few of Seattle's players:

J.R. Sweezy: Most likely to say, 'As you wish, master' every time the QB calls a play.

Jon Ryan: Most likely to get sunburned by the moon.

Will Tukuafu: Most likely to have literally turned his smile upside down.

Marshawn Lynch: Most likely to say, 'Jimmy Fallon? I love those guys!'

Tweet Of The Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from Seahawks punter Jon Ryan, who reacts to seeing his face on Fallon's NFL superlatives segment.
