Seahawks Daily Top 10: Rodgers redux, Chancellor tackles his aggressiveness, and more

The Seahawks will be back on the practice field today, with coach Pete Carroll also scheduled to meet the media to talk about Sunday’s game at San Diego.

And safety Jeron Johnson knows what day it is:

1, For today’s paper, Jayson Jenks wrote about Kam Chancellor’s missed tackles against Green Bay as evidence that at times he has to dial down his aggression.

2, ICYMI, Aaron Rodgers, during his radio show on Tuesday, expanded a bit on what happened in Seattle last week when he declined to look Richard Sherman’s way.

“I think I said, ‘I hope you get some work this year,’ ” Rodgers said on his ESPN Milwaukee radio show Tuesday. “By that point, I knew that we hadn’t really looked to his side or thrown to his side, and I just said that to him, and I think we kind of laughed about it and went on the way.”

And according to this story, Rodgers explained what happened this way:

“We liked the matchup with Jordy on the left; it gave him a lot of opportunities,” Rodgers said. “Looked the other side a few times and just didn’t have the right look to throw it over there. It’s nothing more than the way we like to work matchups. When Cleveland came in here last year, Joe Haden, who’s an exceptional player, he went with Jordy on both sides of the field, and you had Buster Skrine guarding Jarrett for most of the night. Jarrett got off to a good start, made a couple of catches and ended up having over 100 yards and a touchdown, and that’s just the way it went.”

3, Really good stuff here from ProFootballFocus noting that Patrick Peterson and Darrelle Revis also  lined up almost solely on the left side this weekend, as well. If you recall, Sherman noticed all of this the other day:

4, Seahawks.com puts its focus on Bobby Wagner.

5, According to ESPN, Earl Thomas said the Seahawks are like James Brown.

6, SI.com’s Doug Farrar on the still-evolving Seattle offense.

7, A Packers website with a pretty detailed breakdown of some of the key plays of the Seahawks game.

8, Some good stuff here on the Zone Read, with a few Seahawks mentions.

9, Nick Canepa of the San Diego Union-Tribune says it’s unfair the Chargers have to play the Seahawks after having played on Monday night while Seattle has been off since last Thursday. Coach Mike McCoy, though, didn’t seem too bothered:

“It’s one of 16,” Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Tuesday. “We’re not making any excuses.”

10, Here are lots of Chargers links from ESPN. Of note, though, still no real update yet on center Nick  Hardwick, who hurt his ankle against the Cardinals.
