Seahawks Daily Top 10: One last day off before the grind hits

We;ll begin with a reminder that the Seahawks are taking today off as their one mandated player day off for the week. It falls on Wednesday instead of Tuesday with the game this week on a Monday instead of Sunday. The Seahawks will be back Thursday for what would be a usual Wednesday-type practice, etc. After this day off, though, starts a pretty hard grind for the next couple weeks as a Monday night game on the east coast means a quick turnaround the following week to get ready for the home game against Dallas. So the players better take advantage of this one.

On to the 10. …

1. Here’s our recap on the news of Tuesday, specifically some of Luke Willson’s thoughts on taking over as the starting tight end for as long as Zach Miller is out. Pete Carroll said Monday the team expects to replace Miller in-house. So unless something changes, this is going to fall on Willson and Cooper Helfet (and maybe in a punch, Garry Gilliam) to get the job done with Miller out.

2. Seahawks.com caught up with Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin to talk about their experience at Husky Stadium Saturday as Stanford beat UW.

3. The Seahawks remain the favorite to win the Super Bowl according to Bovada’s odds at 4-1, shorter odds than last week’s 15-4. Russell Wilson is 10-1 to win the NFL MVP award — the favorite is Peyton Manning at 4-1.

4. The Washington Post notes that Washington does not have a history of great prime time success, unlike Seattle. Here’s more on Washington’s 4-14 record in prime time games since 2000.

5. Washington OLB Brian Orapko is playing through a sprained left middle finger. And ESPN assesses the play of Washington QB Kirk Cousins, who threw four interceptions last Thursday against the Giants.

6. A reminder that Washington might well have hired Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell as its coach last year had the Seahawks not been in the midst of a Super Bowl run.

7. Here’s one vote for Philip Rivers as the NFL MPV so far, which I pass along in part to note again that the loss to San Diego may look a little more excusable with each passing day.

8. FormerĀ  Seahawk Brandon Browner has served his suspension and ready now to make his New England Patriots debut:

9. If you missed any of the E:60 on Sherman, here’s a snippet:

10. And to reiterate Seattle’s recent Prime Time success:
