Why this game is intriguing: None of the reasons to watch this game include finding out about Tim Tebow's magical new and growing role. Safe to say, if that was going to save the Jets' season, it would've been unveiled already. Whether No. 15 takes six snaps or eight isn't that interesting to me. What about the battle between two much-debated pass-rushers, first-round draft picks who are often the subject of comparison? OK, I'm into that. Seattle's Bruce Irvin (the 15th overall pick in April) and Gang Green's Quinton Coples (the 16th) will be measured against each other throughout their careers, and this is their first head-to-head battle in the unfriendly confines of CenturyLink Field. Really, the reason to check out Jets-Seahawks is to see whether the Jets should be talking about 2012 or 2013. Coming off a bye, Jets coach Rex Ryansaid this about his team earlier this week: "We're not sniffing the playoffs." A loss will make that a fact.
