A Saturday morning primer as we prepare for tonight's game against Chicago.
Frank Hughes of the TNT writes that Charlie Frye is ready to take advantage of his opportunity in tonight's game against Chicago.
Never miss a local story.
Aaron Fentress of the Oregonian says a focus of tonight's game for the Seahawks will be the play of the team's young receivers with Bobby Engram and Deion Branch injured.
Matt Hasselbeck practiced on Thursday but likely will not play in tonight's game. But he should be ready to go next week.
While half the teams in the NFL are scrambling to fill shaky quarterback situations, that's not the case for Seattle, writes Scott Johnson of the Everett Herald.
An complete overview of the Seahawks provided by ESPN's Mike Sando can be found here.
Even though it's preseason, some Chicago players are concerned about false starts heading into Qwest Field. The Bears had four false start penalties in a game last season at Qwest.

San Francisco 49ers
With the 49ers hosting the Green Bay Packers tonight, Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat revisits the Alex Smith-Aaron Rodgers debate, discussing what San Francisco executives were thinking leading up to the 2005 draft, with the 49ers holding the No. 1 overall draft pick.
Dan Brown of the San Jose Mercury News goes one step further, hinting Rodgers may have been the better pick.
And Rodgers talks about his draft situation and other subjects in this interview with Scott Burrows of the Sacramento Bee.
Brown also brought a stopwatch to practice and timed how long it took for the San Francisco quarterback to get rid of the ball, with some interesting results.
Kurt Warner gets the chance to show what he can do in the competition at quarterback between Warner and Matt Leinart.
