The Seahawks’ defense had a promising showing in Week 1 of the season, thanks in no small part to new star safety Jamal Adams, but the 38-25 win over the Atlanta Falcons may have just been the tip of the iceberg.

Let’s go back to a simpler, less divisive time in our recent history. Heaps: Seahawks’ tempo on offense should be an advantage vs. Pats This was before Russ’s culinary freedom was a matter of hyperbole and rhetoric and when the Seahawks could make a fourth-down decision without it being a referendum on how much the team trusted its quarterback.
The Patriots have one of the better defenses in the NFL, so it will be interesting to see how they stack up against Wilson and the Seahawks. One thing’s for sure — Belichick is not going to let his team take the assignment lightly.
Wildfires around Washington state have made air quality in and around Seattle an issue the last couple of weeks and Wednesday was no exception. The air quality was deemed to be in an unhealthy range when the Seahawks were set to practice and that led the team to work in their indoor facility.

One of the surprise names placed on injured reserve is former Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman, who played all but a handful of snaps in last Sunday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
Seattle head coach Pete Carroll confirmed that special teams coordinator Brian Schneider has taken an indefinite leave from the organization for personal reasons. Special teams assistant Larry Izzo will temporarily replace Schneider.
Apparently, Saints head coach Sean Payton has taken an active involvement in courting one of the game’s most talented pass-rushers. That could certainly play a role in Clowney’s decision-making process.
