AP Pro32 comments about Seahawks
NEW YORK -- Comments on the Seattle Seahawks by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (11)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 10) -- Petitioning NFL for 16-game home schedule.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 13) -- A physical defense and a physical running game makes a good combo.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 12)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 11) -- Dominant at home (5-0) but not so good on the road (1-4).
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 11) -- Another fine showing for rookie Russell Wilson, who schools Mark Sanchez in a convincing Seahawks win to keep divisional race tight.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 12) -- Thankfully, this is the final weekend of NFL byes. The Seahawks, Giants, Titans and Vikings all have Week 11 off.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 10) -- Psssst, this just in: Russell Wilson is having a pretty good year, too.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 11) -- They can beat anyone at home, and lose to anyone on the road.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 9) -- At home they are world beaters and Russell Wilson has the magic. Now they go out on the road and must respond. The Seahawks play fast, physical and take no prisoners.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 10) -- Seattle is a good football team. The defense is suffocating. Rookie QB Russell Wilson is as good as there is at home and about as bad as there is on the road. He needs to play like he's at home all the time for them to win consistently.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 11) -- At 5-0, the Seahawks may be the NFL's best home team. The next step is transferring that mojo to the road, where Seattle is 1-4.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 12) -- They are 6-4, but winless in the NFC West and 4-4 in the NFC -- which is not a good scenario for their postseason chances.
