Wednesday Round-Up: Seismic analysis of Seahawks' NFC Championship win vs Green Bay Packers

A morning 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 - Wednesday, Jan. 21 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

CenturyLink Field Quake Comparison

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN) was on site for Sunday's NFC Championship win over the Green Bay Packers to monitor crowd-generated "earthquakes" through the run of play.

They posted their findings earlier this week, noting the activity that came after Marshawn Lynch's go-ahead fourth quarter touchdown and subsequent two-point conversion from Russell Wilson to Luke Willson that gave Seattle a 22-19 lead out-measured that of the original "Beast Quake" run from the Seahawks' 2011 wild-card playoff game against the New Orleans Saints. 

PNSN writes, "...the 'Dance Quake' following the go-ahead touchdown and 2-point conversion seems to be the biggest seismic signal yet seen associated with a Seahawks game. Those of us watching on TV directly saw the source of the shaking. For some reason the TV broadcast did not break away for a commercial as is typical after touchdowns.  Instead it showed several different scenes of the crowd. It was very obvious that large number of fans were jumping up and down in unison at a rate of about 2 jumps per second. Our staff in the press box said that the whole place was shaking so much they thought it might be a real earthquake."

Nicely done, 12s. 

Dan Quinn Up For Salute To Service Award

Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is one of 27 nominees for the NFL's Salute To Service Award presented by USAA, which acknowledges "the exceptional efforts by members of the NFL community to honor and support U.S. service members and veterans."

Quinn and his wife Stacey launched the "Quinn's Corps Foundation" in 2005 to help military families. During the season Quinn hosts military guests to unique gameday experiences and has been one of the first to greet military members who visit practice at Seahawks headquarters.

You can tweet your support for Quinn using the #SaluteToService hashtag on Twitter.

Tweet of the Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from Danny Kelly at, who shares a short video of Seahawks punter Jon Ryan's celebration following his 19-yard touchdown pass to Garry Gilliam. You may not have caught in the stadium or on T.V., but Ryan dishes out the "discount double-check" championship belt gesture - Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' signature move - to the Green Bay sideline.
