Seahawks Daily Top 10: Preseason Gameday No. 2 on tap

It’s preseason Gameday No. 2 as the Seahawks host the San Diego Chargers Friday night at 7. And it begins as a really wet one here in Seattle, looking like November weather out there with a steady rain. The forecast says this will clear up and be nice for the game tonight. So cross our fingers for that.

For now, the 10:

1, Here’s my preview story looking at a few things to watch tonight (similar, but different, from the earlier blog post).

2, Seahawks.com offers a video preview as well as a feature on Justin Britt.

3, Here’s the Associated Press’ preview story, with some of Brock Coyle’s thoughts on playing his first game at CenturyLink.

4, ESPN says the backup running back spot remains the best battle in Seahawks camp. The one thing about that spot is that you figure both will end up seeing some significant time this season, and then production will tell the tale. ESPN also has some highs and lows of training camp.

5, Some keys to the game from the Chargers’ point of view.

6, ESPN’s Chargers writer Eric Williams with what to watch tonight and a host of links setting up the game while NFL.com says Paul Richardson and Christine Michael are two to watch tonight.

7, A really nice story here in The Oregonian on one-time Duck signee Terrance Kelly, who was tragically gunned down just before he was to report to camp for his freshman season. Included is an anecdote of Marshawn Lynch making an unexpected appearance to speak to kids at an event for Kelly’s Youth Foundation. The date listed is July 26, which would have been during Lynch’s holdout.

8, The Seahawks remain a six-point favorite.

9, FootballOutsiders.com with proof of just how good Seattle has been running play-action the last two years. FO writes of the Seahawks:

Seattle’s been in the top two in play-action rate the last two years. The good news is Seattle’s also ranked top 10 in DVOA without play action in both years, so (Russell) Wilson’s not just leaning on play action. We also know he’s been pressured a ton and leads the league in scrambles and passes thrown out of the pocket in each of the last two years. I guess you can say Wilson’s been very easy to identify by stats in regards to his unique playing style. He really is The Asterisk.

10, Finally, one Seattle rookie looking forward to tonight:
