Seahawks Daily Top 10: Gameday drawing nearer

It’s the day before the day before a game that has been much-anticipated since the minute the NFL schedules were released last spring.

Now, though, with the Seahawks coming off a loss at San Diego, the theme in the Seattle locker room all week has been about simply righting the ship rather than making any real statement about the Super Bowl. That was then and this is now, basically.

What the Seahawks say wasn’t lost in San Diego, though, was any confidence.

Linebacker K.J. Wright said the Seahawks feel as if everything that went wrong in San Diego was in their control and easily fixable.

“If we do what we do at a good, high level of what we are capable of we should win every game,’’ Wright said. “But this is the NFL and those teams prepare just as well. But everytime we play I think we are going to win.’’

Also still showing confidence in the Seahawks is the Las Vegas Line, as Seattle remains a 5-point favorite at most books.

Here’s another betting line number to inspire some confidence, courtesy of PreGame.com: Seattle is 14-4-1 against the spread at home with Russell Wilson at quarterback.

Now a bunch of other links to start your Seahawks day. ..
