Found October 15, 2013 on Cascadia Sports:
Third year wide receiver Doug Baldwin has emerged as Russell Wilson’s favorite target so far this season. The former Stanford Cardinal had a rough sophomore season as he could not duplicate his nearly 800 yards receiving he had during his rookie season. Seattle’s receiving core has been far from explosive this season so it is important that somebody stepped up for Wilson. The Seahawks X-Factor Percy Harvin should be coming back into the fray quite soon. When the Seattle Seahawks traded for Harvin they expected him to be the game changing player that would make the Seahawks offense elite. Obviously, that hasn’t happened yet because of injuries. It will take time for Harvin to get back to full strength but when he does the Seahawks will finally have a big playmaker on their offense. With Sidney Rice slowing down, Baldwin will become the Seahawks number two wide receiver when Harvin comes back. Expect Harvin to get double teamed by opposing defenses which will put Baldwin in one-on-one situations. Although Baldwin lacks ideal height at 5’9, he does have great speed which will make him a threat especially because of his crisp route running. When the playoff battles begin in January, the NFC is expected to have some high powered offenses representing them. We all know that defenses win Championships but the Seahawks will need Doug Baldwin to emerge against teams like the New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, and Green Bay Packers.   You can follow Jorge on twitter @jraycontreras or add him to your network on google Jorge is the co-founder of  Football and Futbol , Bay Sports Report , Cascadia Sports , Sports Report So Cal and Sports Report Arizona

Moments in time…The Seattle Seahawks week that was

Not pretty, but we got it done Perhaps it was the star power on the Seahawks sidelines that distracted the players, or maybe even the fact that the Tennessee Titans were using a backup QB.
