Blatant homerism! I wouldn’t trade Lynch for Peterson

Or anyone for that matter On Monday, my editor sent me this Seattle Seahawks pitch, asking if I would be interested in writing the piece—he already had the headline picked.  I had to laugh a little bit at first because I actually had this conversation with my buddy at at a recent game.

Charly Martin Released

Earlier today, the Seahawks released wide receiver Charly Martin.  It's presumed that the move was made in order to make room for cornerback Walter Thurmond, but Thurmond still hasn't been officially activated off of the physically unable to play list.

Breakdown: New York Jets vs Seattle Seahawks

Coming out of a bye week, no one is expecting the 3-5 New York Jets to beat the 5-4 Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have the 3rd best defense in the league, are undefeated at home, and have the advantage when it comes to both their offense and their defense.
