  1. Yes, Seattle is slowly climbing the defensive rankings. The one stat that impresses me the most is seventh in turnovers, while at the same time, only 24th in sacks per pass attempt.

    Can you imagine if they had another pass-rush threat outside of Chris Clemons? The secondary is very young, very active, and already starting to make big plays. Start forcing more rushed passes, the turnovers will only increase.

    QB is obviously at the top of Seattle’s “need” list, but if all the QB talent is gone when they pick in April, don’t be shocked if they take a pass-rushing DE/LB.

    I bet the Vikes would rather have a pick per game and be winning. That stat really doesn’t say much
    Umm, he’s saying they haven’t made any interceptions on defense in 8 games, not that they haven’t thrown any. In fact they have thrown 13 picks and made only 6 on the year. A negative turnover ratio is actually a highly relevant stat.

  3. Finding a player to emulate Tim Tebow on the scout team isn’t easy.

    Just have any right handed quarterback throw left handed. That should emulate the throwing motion and accuracy.

  4. “Giants S Antrel Rolle is begging for quarterbacks to throw at him.”

    I’m begging for him to shut the hell up and play football. Offense wins games, defense wins championships, talking wins headlines.
