Note: This is an abbreviated edition of our morning look around the division. We hit on several other items in a Tuesday night version.

Clare Farnsworth of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer examines Seneca Wallace's development into a starting-caliber quarterback. Wallace has gone 183 pass attempts without an interception, breaking Matt Hasselbeck's franchise record (159).

John Morgan of Field Gulls blows up predraft misconceptions about Seahawks tight end John Carlson. As Mike Holmgren pointed out in May: "If you didn't watch him play and you saw that time at the combine, you would think he was a small tackle. He is not that. ... He can catch and he can block."

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the Rams are freezing most ticket prices, a reflection of a tougher economy and the team's on-field struggles.

Bill Coats of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says Rams linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa is healthier and more productive after reducing his weight to 220 pounds.

Steve Korte of the Belleville News-Democrat says Rams defensive tackle La'Roi Glover, 34, hasn't made a decision on retirement. Glover is playing despite a torn meniscus. Coach Jim Haslett: "He is the hardest working guy that I have been around."
