RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll will never say one regular-season game is more important than any other game. However, with 9-1 Arizona as the next team up and five of the final six games against NFC West rivals, Carroll knows everything is on the line for the 6-4 Seahawks.
“There’s so much at stake coming up here in the next month and a half,” Carroll said. “I think it’s a really cool time of the year.
Jim Harbaugh, who spent 14 years as an NFL quarterback with the Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore Ravens and San Diego Chargers, was known as Captain Comeback for his late-game heroics.
He was not particularly admired for his scrambling ability, though. And yet, with 2,787 career rushing yards, he ranks 10th in NFL history among quarterbacks.
So surely he’d have a take on Hall of Fame QB and ESPN analyst Steve Young’s recent take that his own skill set as a running quarterback stunted his growth as a pocket passer, the inference being that Colin Kaepernick ’s running ability could be slowing his arm’s development.
RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks will have 10 of 11 defensive starters on the field Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals at CenturyLink Field.
With middle linebacker Bobby Wagner returning from a turf toe injury, it marks the first time the team has had more than nine starters on defense in a game since all 11 started the game on Oct. 12th against the Dallas Cowboys. Wagner left that game in the first half, but returned and played the second half.
