There's a ton of good reading out there this morning following another Seahawks win, so here's to sharing the wealth:
- The buzz is rapidly building for Mike Williams making a true run at the Comeback Player of the Year award. We all know his maligned history by now, but after two big games, his story is becoming even more admirable. Only four players have ever racked up 500 yards receiving in the their first season back in the NFL after multiple seasons of absence. Williams could easily be the fifth.
- Pete Carroll says LT Russell Okung's ankle sprain is indeed another high ankle sprain, but not to the original ankle he injured in the preseason. The team is taking a wait-and-see approach before determining his status for Week 8 against Oakland. Also, per that same source, Brandon Mebane and Kelly Jennings could likely return to practice on Thursday. Having Mebane back would be a huge boost to stopping Darren McFadden.
- When analyst Tony Dungy called the Seahawks the best team in the NFC, he was nearly laughed off the set of his NBC show by co-hosts Rodney Harrison and Dan Patrick. “Are you kidding me?” Harrison added. “You must have got hit upside the head with a couple of bibles or something.”
- Danny O'Neil cites three things we learned from Sunday's win over Arizona. One of these things is a fact we all learned very quickly after watching Russell Okung manhandle Julius Peppers -- the Seattle run game is a force with Okung there. O'Neil: With Okung in the game, Seattle gained 55 yards on six carries. After he left, the Seahawks gained 91 yards on 30 carries.
- O'Neil also says Hasselbeck is avoiding enough mistakes in recent games to be effective in Pete Carroll's offense. "Hasselbeck (is) functioning more like a bus driver who's expected to keep the whole operation from veering into a ditch as opposed to the Formula One driver who must hug every curve." Love that metaphor.
