An offensive lineman... or three: Russell Wilson has been sacked on 9.4 percent of his dropbacks, the second-highest rate in the NFL, according to ESPN Stats & Information. And Marshawn Lynch has averaged just 1.60 yards before contact (48th of 51 players). At 5-5, the Seattle Seahawks will try to go on a late-season run and sneak into the playoffs. But if they come up short, one of the primary reasons will be because the offensive line has taken so long to come together.
Wrist watches all around: They need something to remind them that football games last a full 60 minutes. The Seahawks have squandered fourth-quarter leads in all five of their losses this season. Only three teams -- Seattle, New England and Carolina -- have held fourth-quarter leads in every game. The Patriots and Panthers are undefeated. The Seahawks are .500.
A time machine: Granted, this is the gift that probably would benefit every team, but the Seahawks would be able to change a number of decisions and outcomes. Maybe they'd be able to find a way to convince safety Kam Chancellor not to hold out for the first two games of the season (both losses). Maybe they'd come up with a different solution at right cornerback, where Cary Williams was benched last week. And maybe they'd decide that trading for Jimmy Graham (one red zone TD) might not be worth weakening their offensive line. -- Sheil Kapadia
