Clare Farnsworth of seahawks.com says the team will leave for Chicago on Friday, a day earlier than the team has traveled to previous road games this season. Pete Carroll's appreciation for the challenges of 10 a.m. PT kickoffs will only grow. Fortunately for Seattle, the team will not have another early game until Week 16. Previous Seattle coaches have tried leaving Friday to better acclimate to the time difference. They've tried leaving Saturday as if reluctant to acknowledge any additional challenges. There's just no way around the fact that a 10 a.m. PT kickoff means waking up for a game at 5 in the morning.
