Is Kearse Seattle's new deep threat?

Everyone knows how good Seattle's defense is, and that showed last week when the Seahawks limited Cam Newton to a career-low 163 yards of offense. If there's a question right now with Pete Carroll's team, it's the offense; specifically, its under-manned receiving corps that won't get Percy Harvin (hip) back until Week 7 at the earliest.

One of the keys to look for this week vs. rival San Francisco and in the first few months of the season is the play of Jermaine Kearse, a rangy second-year receiver who could ease the loss of Harvin and take some of the pressure off of Sidney Rice and his troublesome knee.
