NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Seattle Seahawks by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (13)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 11) - Holding breath on cornerbacks' appeals.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 15) - Their struggles on the road could cost them a wild card spot.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 14)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 14) - Can' win away from home (5-0 at home and just 1-5 on the road).
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 14) - A double dose of bad news for the Seahawks: They lose to the Dolphins, and face the possibility of losing their starting cornerbacks to suspensions.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 14) - Rookie QB Russell Wilson can't wait to get home. He has thrown all eight of his interceptions and suffered all five of his defeats on the road. Unfortunately, the Seahawks are back on the road Sunday at Chicago.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 12) - The Seahawks are practically unbeatable at home, but one of these days they're going to have to win on the road.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 13) - Two stout defenses will keep forcing punts at Soldier Field.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 13) - The road woes continue and they travel to Chicago this week. Unless the Seahawks win at least one road game and all of their remaining home games they may come up short.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 13) - Pete Carroll is going to petition the NFL to play all his team's games in Seattle.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 12) - The Seahawks can't be taken for real until learning to win consistently on the road. A 24-21 loss at Miami was a major setback.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 14) - If they lose Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman for four games, they may send several opposing receivers to the Pro Bowl.
