Seahawks Daily Top 10: Brandon Mebane, NFC West review, and more

So if you were like me, you did little Sunday but watch all the other NFL games, a nice by-product of Seattle’s Thursday night affair.

And the takeaway from the two other NFC West games is that the 49ers seem like they haven’t been bothered much by a fairly rocky off-season and are ready to again stand as Seattle’s primary competitor, routing the Cowboys in Dallas; while the Rams appear still in a daze over the Sam Bradford injury and at the moment, simply sleepwalking instead of being the sleeper team many thought they’d be, getting housed at home by the Vikings.

In other words, maybe nothing has really changed from the last few years, after all.

Wseahawksdaily_top10e’ll have to wait until Monday night to get a look at the Cardinals, who host Seattle’s next opponent, the San Diego Chargers

The Seahawks remain listed as a six-point favorite against the Chargers in early lines, which could fluctuate a bit based on how the Chargers play against the Cardinals and injuries (speaking of the Chargers and injuries, both TE Antonio Gates and LB Manti Te’o are among the players listed as questionable for the Arizona game).

Now to an early Monday morning (yes, really Sunday night) version of the 10. …

1,  Jayson Jenks has this on one of the more unsung Seahawks — nose tackle Brandon Mebane.

2, It appears one players the Seahawks are looking at to add depth in the secondary is free agent cornerback Keith Lewis. Lewis Tweeted Sunday that he was in Seattle, and also that he was here for a tryout with the Seahawks:

3, Lewis, an undrafted rookie free agent from Virginia-Lynchburg, was among the players released by Tampa Bay in the cutdown to 53 (here’s his Tampa Bay bio). And here’s a good feature on Lewis from May.

4, Really interesting stuff here on the national TV rating for the Seattle-Green Bay game and how it compares to some other major sporting events of the past year. The Cliff’s Notes version? The NFL is hot as ever.

5, Fun stuff from Seahawks.com featuring four different looks of three of the key plays of the Green Bay game.

6, ESPN says Seattle’s offensive line looks much improved.

7, John Breech of CBSSports.com gives an A-plus grade to the Seahawks for the weekend.

8, One more Green Bay-centric view of what happened to the Packers against the Seahawks.

9, FoxSports.com picks one turning point from every NFL game. Seattle’s is the Byron Maxwell interception.

10, Mike Tanier notes that for all the talk of the emphasis on illegal contact, there weren’t all that many penalties called for it through the morning and early afternoon games Sunday:
