Wednesday Round-Up: Where do the Seahawks Rank in Peter King's Fine Fifteen?

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 - Wednesday, Sept. 30 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Peter King's 'Fine Fifteen'

There are seven undefeated teams in the League through the season's first three weeks, and as you'd expect, those teams are crowding the top of Peter King's 'Fine Fifteen' at, where King's ranks the NFL's Top 15 teams each week. But the 1-2 Seahawks also find their way into King's 'Fine Fifteen' after three games, placing ahead of the Atlanta Falcons (3-0) and Carolina Panthers (3-0). King explains why he has the Seahawks at No. 6 on his list:

Impressed with the 26-0 win over Chicago. Okay, but is there anyone out there who thought the Jimmy Clausen-led Bears would make this a game, score more than a couple of field goals on the hungry 'Hawks? Now you'll ask why I have a 1-2 team ahead of two 3-0 teams. My answer: I think the Seahawks are better, and would win if they played Atlanta or Carolina on a neutral field.

The Green Bay Packers, who the Seahawks lost to in Week 2 at Lambeau Field, are No. 2 on King's list and the St. Louis Rams, who the Seahawks lost to in Week 1 at the Edward Jones Dome, also received a vote from King but missed out on making his 'Fine Fifteen' this week.

Brock Huard's Chalk Talk

Former Seahawks and University of Washington quarterback turned 710 ESPN Seattle radio host Brock Huard breaks down Seattle's lone offensive touchdown from the team's Week 3 win over the Chicago Bears. The score came on a 30-yard pass from quarterback Russell Wilson to tight end Jimmy Graham and in the video above Huard explains how Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's play call produced the desired result - a one-on-one matchup for the 6-foot-7, 265-pound Graham over the middle of the field.
