The latest news and analysis from all angles on the Seahawks.

Catching up on a few weekend links. …

— Here’s my Saturday story on Sean McGrath, who suddenly has a big opportunity to earn playing time at tight end with the injury to Anthony McCoy;

— USA Today highlights the visit to Friday’s practice by Kenny Chesney;

— Sporting News rates Marshawn Lynch the No. 7 fantasy running back for 2013;

— Here’s some speculation that Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell would be a candidate for the head coaching job at BYU should it come open soon;

— Former Seahawks Mack Strong, Pork Chop Womack and Trey Junkin all made this NFL.com “All-Name’; list;

— A story on an Iowa State prof’s love of stats uses the Seattle-Green Bay game to illustrate how the unknown of an official’s call can change everything;

— Ten teams — though not Seattle — will get some salary cap relief today, and that could mean a little roster shuffling around the league;

— The Seahawks might play the 49ers next year at the “Field of Jeans,” — though let’s hope not;

— Finally, ESPN.com’s Mike Sando has some interesting thoughts on whether it’s really great quarterbacks that make great coaches, rather than the other way around. The discussion was spurred by ESPN.com’s Greatest Coaches in NFL History series. Former Seahawks coach Chuck Knox isn’t going to make the list, and some might argue that he is the prototype of the kind off coach Sando is discussing — one who might have been considered great had he ever had a great quarterback. Knox had a revolving door at QB duringĀ  his Rams’ years, then had Dave Krieg during his Seattle years — it can be debated forever whether Knox should or could have made Krieg into a Super Bowl-caliber QB, or if it was Krieg who wasn’t quite the missing piece during that era. Regardless, it’s an interesting debate.
