Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, Jan. 14 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Richard Sherman Talks Team's Championship Mindset
In a short blog post on his personal website, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman shares his thoughts on this week's NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, detailing the team's mindset as they ready for Sunday's 12:05 p.m. PT kickoff at CenturyLink Field.
"Our defensive mindset for this week is simple; shut everything down! The Packers are a talented team with athletic receivers that work well in space. We have to do a great job of being physical with these receivers and making them work for every ball thrown. Our defense has taken pride in our ability to play physical and swarm to the ball. We will need to maintain an up tempo pursuit, and create pressure in the back-field in order to make big plays.
To be the best, you have to beat the best. A trip to the Super Bowl isn't going to be handed to anyone who doesn't work for it. We need to get out there and play sound football from the first snap. I hope you 12s are ready, because everything we have worked for this year will be put on the line on Sunday!"
Sherman is scheduled to meet with the media at 1 p.m. PT, a press conference you can stream live right here.
"See Yourself Live" On #12sCam
Prior to this Sunday's game against the Packers, a camera will capture fans filling into the North Plaza at Seattle's CenturyLink Field.
It's called #12sCam, and it's a project that debuted ahead of this past Saturday's divisional-round playoff against the Carolina Panthers.
12sCam will get going again three hours before Sunday's 12:05 p.m. PT kick at Seahawks.com/live.
Brock Huard's "Chalk Talk"
Former Seahawks quarterback Brock Huard brings us another one of his "Chalk Talk" breakdowns of a play from this past Saturday's 31-17 divisional-round playoff win over the Carolina Panthers.
Huard analyzes Russell Wilson's 25-yard touchdown toss to tight end Luke Willson, a play that shows the increased emphasis the Seattle signal caller has placed on getting the ball out quickly - a subject Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times touches on right here.
Tweet of the Day
Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from NFL Director of NFC Football Communications Randall Liu, who reminds fans what the Seahawks and Packers are playing for this weekend.
