Saturday morning links and notes: J.R. Sweezy on the rise

In a season of more turbulence than expected, one consistent bright spot for the Seahawks has been the play of guard J.R. Sweezy, who by all accounts is becoming the player the Seahawks hoped he’d be when drafting him in 2012 and converting him to the offensive line.

Jayson Jenks wrote about Sweezy for the Saturday paper, including this quote from offensive line coach Tom Cable:

“It’s my opinion, but I think J.R. Sweezy is as good as anybody in football at what he’s doing right now.”

Also in our paper today is this wrapup of the injury news.

And in other news. ….

— There’s a report out that the Seahawks contacted Randy Moss after trading Percy Harvin. The Seahawks are known for liking to kick lots of tires, so who knows?

— I did my own version of a Five Questions, Five Answers on the Seahawks for NJ.com.

— NJ.com’s Jordan Raanan, in Seattle already, talked to Richard Sherman a bit yesterday about his lack of illegal contact penalties.

— In what’s not much of a surprise, New York’s leading rusher, Rashaad Jennings, reportedly isn’t making the trip to Seattle, He had already been listed as doubtful.

— More on the Giants’ injuries. And here.

— Lindy’s picks the Seahawks 30-23.

— The New York Daily News with a preview.

— Newsday on the “alarming” margin of defeat for the Giants.

Assessing the Giants’ “Worry Meter.”

— The Giants are using “special noise” to prepare.

And expect a Seattle personnel move later today to get Jeremy Lane back on the 53-man roster.
