Friday round-up: Pete Carroll’s Top 5 most significant wins

On the Seahawks #12Tour, Doug Baldwin and Red Bryant surprise David Libby of the United States Army at his home in honoring his service and sacrifice as a Wounded Warrior.

Good morning, and here’s what’s “out there” for today, Friday, July 12, about your Seattle Seahawks:

Danny O’Neil of 710Sports.com ranks the Top 5 most significant wins under head coach Pete Carroll. O’Neil’s No. 1 ranked win under Carroll may not be one that your mind would immediately gravitate toward, as he picks the Seahawks’ 22-17 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on November 13, 2011 – Carroll’s second season with the club.

On that game, O’Neil writes:  “The significance is apparent only in retrospect. Seattle was 10-16 under Carroll entering this game, including the playoffs. Lynch had rushed for 100 yards in only two of those games and the Seahawks had a total of 19 rushing touchdowns. The Seahawks are 17-9 in all games since, Lynch has rushed for more than 100 yards in 16 games and the Seahawks have 29 rushing touchdowns. Seattle may not have taken off until Wilson was put under center, but the sign of the turnaround can be traced to the midway point of Carroll’s second season.”

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times continues his countdown to training camp blog, answering the question – who will win the Seahawks backup quarterback job?

Speaking of backup quarterbacks, NFL.com Around the League writer Marc Sessler ranks the NFL’s backup quarterbacks, and Seahawks backup Brady Quinn comes in at No. 18.

Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune joined Sports Radio 950 KJR AM’s Ian Furness to talk about the Seahawks defense and which players need to step up come training camp at the end of July:

Former NFL quarterback and Tacoma, Wash. native Jon Kitna joined 710 AM ESPN Seattle’s “Brock and Danny” to talk about quarterback Russell Wilson’s development, as well as Wilson’s No. 12 ranking in ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski’s ranking of the League’s 32 quarterbacks:

Here at Seahawks.com, Clare Farnsworth throws it back to strong safety Jeron Johnson’s time as a middle linebacker at Dominguez High School in Compton, Calif.

Along with team partner Alaska Airlines, Wilson led a pledge for 605 urban youth to stay in school and accomplish their goals. We also have photos from the event here.
