"Turnover Thursday" At Seahawks Practice

By Jim McCoy Thu 30th January SportsSeattle SeahawksSuper Bowl
The Seattle Seahawks were focused on turnovers - creating them on defense and not making them on offense - at Super Bowl practice Thursday. It was "Turnover Thursday" for Pete Carroll's team, an approach that has worked well for the Seahawks this season. Seattle's stingy defense led the NFL with 39 takeaways, a fact Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are well aware of. Quarterback Russell Wilson prefers to call the 90-minute session "No-Turnover Thursday" for the offense, which doesn't want to give the Broncos any extra opportunities with fumbles or interceptions. "Turnover Thursday" followed "Competition Wednesday," a game-like practice session in which the Seahawks run a live scrimmage that includes a play clock.
