I asked the Seahawks' defensive coordinator about what he's looking at for the game at Minnesota.
"The number one thing is organization and everybody making the right calls, the right substitutions, everything's organized and guys aren't at a loss for anything. They know exactly what to do and where to go. Sideline procedure. It all starts with those things. Then I'm looking for guys that are going to it. See how physical they can play the game."
Q: Is this where the roster spot competition starts for real?
A: "Sure. Sure. It's the first real go kind of thing. I want to see how players function out on the field by themselves when they don't have coaches reminding them about this and that before the snap. They've got to get their own juice going and their intensity and they've got to pull together and do that."

I really, really want to see Payne get some preseason action - hope those ribs can heal up in time.
