Seahawks morning links and notes — Marshawn Lynch: Good samaritan, and more

The Seahawks will be back on the field at the VMAC this morning to prepare for what may be their most critical game of the season against the Arizona Cardinals, a contest in which they remain a 6.5-point favorite, a spread that hasn’t really mode since being posted Sunday.

And they’ll do so riding a nice wave of publicity for a story that originated on the Facebook page of Seahawks fan Jason Lynch, recounting how Marshawn Lynch (no relation), Ricardo Lockette and a camera man returned his wallet on Tuesday during their visit to Marysville-Pilchuck High School. A nice start to the week. …

Jayson Jenks takes a look at Seattle’s passing game that includes these numbers comparing this year’s passing game to last year’s:

13 Touchdown passes in 10 games. Wilson threw 26 TD passes in each of his first two seasons.

90.8 Passer rating. Wilson’s passer ratings were at least 100 each of his first two seasons.

191.8 Seahawks passing yards per game. Last season Seattle averaged 219.3.
