The headline is a play on those overly dramatic TV news updates. The Seahawks might not be facing a crisis just yet, but their cornerbacks haven't picked off a pass in a regular-season game since the final game of last season. Jimmy Williams did the honors against Green Bay on Jan. 1, 2006, a span of 304 days.
We have to go all the way back to a Nov. 6, 2005, game at Arizona to find the last game that one of Seattle's current starting corners -- Kelly Herndon and Marcus Trufant -- picked off a pass in a regular-season game. That's a span of 360 days. Herndon and Trufant both had interceptions in that game against the Cardinals. They need interceptions against Oakland on Monday night to avoid going longer than a full calendar year without a regular-season interception.
Interceptions are not the only measure of a cornerback. Seattle has only five interceptions overall this season, but Indianapolis and Denver don't have more. It's not a crisis. But ex-Hawk Andre Dyson has three for the New York Jets. And with Seattle looking for a spark on defense, a few turnovers would certainly help.
