Our special section focusing on the Seahawks and the NFL, which will be in papers Sunday, has gone on-line already.
Here is the main story, a great feature by Jayson Jenks on Russell Wilson.
Also included is this column by Jerry Brewer on the expectations facing the team, this column by Larry Stone on the innovation that built the 2013 Seahawks and my stories on how the 1985 team could serve as a cautionary tale for this one, and the defense.
Also in our paper today is Jenks’ story on Marshawn Lynch and Brewer’s column on the friendship between Wilson and UW’s Keith Price. Also, here’s our new “Stat Geek” feature, where each week we plan to highlight a few Seahawk-related numbers.
