Opinion: Exposed once again, Seahawks might not have what takes to overcome cracks in foundation

  Opinion: Exposed once again, Seahawks might not have what takes to overcome cracks in foundation The Seahawks once looked like a potential No. 1 seed in the NFC, but another loss Sunday reinforced that Pete Carroll's team could be in trouble.Seattle’s defeat by the NFC West rival Rams — in a contest more lopsided than the score suggested — represented the continuation of a downward trend and quite possibly the exposure of the Seahawks’ truest form.

Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew will miss Sunday’ s game against the Texans. In a bit of a surprise, Marrone said it will be rookie quarterback Jake Luton , not veteran backup Mike Glennon Luton , who threw 28 touchdown passes and only three interceptions at Oregon State last season

Glennon gives the Jaguars an experienced backup heading into the opener against Indianapolis on Sunday. Rookie sixth-round draft pick Jake Luton beat out Glennon for the backup spot, but the veteran might be a better option, if needed, to fill in for starter Gardner Minshew early in the season.

The Jacksonville Jaguars plan to start Mike Glennon over Jake Luton for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, head coach Doug Marrone announced Wednesday, per ESPN's Michael DiRocco.

Luton started the last three games - all losses - in place of the injured Gardner Minshew. The rookie passer had his worst game so far in last Sunday's 27-3 defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers, throwing four interceptions and zero touchdowns.

Minshew is apparently nearing his return from a thumb injury. He could be active against the Browns but only in a backup role, as Marrone said he isn't comfortable with reinserting his starter without a full week of practice, per Brent Martineau of CBS47.

Glennon hasn't played this season and last started for the Chicago Bears in 2017.

The 30-year-old veteran has thrown for 5,163 yards and 36 touchdowns against 20 interceptions across 29 combined appearances (22 starts) for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Bears, Arizona Cardinals, and then-Oakland Raiders.

One year ago, Baker Mayfield and the Browns couldn't fulfill the hype. This year, Cleveland looks like it belongs among AFC contenders.Sure, it’s 2020. So many strange things have happened.
