The Seahawks have the day off before returning to practice on Monday and what will be a short week, with a game at Oakland on Thursday night.
Starters usually play little, if at all, in the final preseason game. And Seattle might be even less tempted to play its main guys with the regular season starting a week from Thursday when Green Bay comes to town.
The season, in other words, is almost here.
For now, 10 for Sunday morning.
1, Great piece today from Jayson Jenks on Angry Doug Baldwin and his never-ending battle against self-doubt. The attention on the return of Percy Harvin might obscure the fact that Baldwin seems primed for the biggest year yet of his career.

3, Seahawks.com profiles LB Marcus Dowtin, who had three solo tackles in nine snaps against the Bears.
4, ESPN’s Terry Blount says Earl Thomas’ talent is on display as a punt returner.
5, For you fantasy football players, FootballOutsiders says Harvin and Marshawn Lynch may be a bit overrated this year.
6, A few interesting personnel notes regarding future Seattle opponents over the last day. We’ll begin with the news that Denver will be without kicker Matt Prater when it comes to Seattle on week three after his suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
7, While a knee injury suffered by Rams’ QB Sam Bradford looked bad initially, coach Jeff Fisher said he thinks it’s not too bad. Bradford missed most of last year, including both games against the Seahawks, with an ACL injury.
8, Seattle’s first opponent, Green Bay, suffered a significant loss with nose tackle B.J. Raji now gone for the season with a biceps injury. ESPN looks at the Packers’ options.
9, Yahoo.com, though, says the Packers look ready for the season.
10, Interesting take on the Bears’ offense against Seattle.
