In Today’s Links: Should the Seattle Seahawks bench Geno for real tho?; How did Jamal Adams look in his first full game back in over a year?; the proverbial ‘Hawks mailbag; and much, much more. Our team’s performance has inspired loads of uneasiness and questions, and some of them may be answered this Sunday afternoon against the University of Phoenix Cardinals (a scrappy lot, indeed!). The season moves forward. Potential temps and exaggerates. Possibilities promise endless rewards and riches. Reality will present a very clear and defined answer in the form of either a playoff berth or a reserve seat on a comfortable coach cushion.
