Wednesday morning Seahawks notes and links: Has defense found itself?

The Seahawks will be back to work today preparing for Sunday’s visit from the New York Giants.

They’ll do so feeling as if the defense is back to its old self, as Jayson Jenks explains in this story for the Wednesday paper.

The story includes a chart with a breakdown of Seattle’s defensive numbers for this season, notably that Seattle is fourth in the NFL in total defense (304.9) and rushing defense (83).

It didn’t hurt that Seattle on Sunday played an  Oakland team on pace to average the least amount of rushing yards per game in the NFL since 1946. 

But the Seahawks at least made the Raiders even more ineffectual with the run than they had been.

Today’s activities at the VMAC include Pete Carroll’s weekly press conference. So we’ll have coverage of that and lots of other stuff later on the blog.

For now, a few more links. …
