Seahawks win fuels QB questions

With Tarvaris Jackson hurting and Charlie Whitehurst closing out Sunday's win, more questions are raised in Seattle. For the first four weeks of this season, the question was whether Whitehurst could spark Seattle's offense. When he entered the game Sunday, however, the challenge was to keep everything together. ... For anyone already convinced he would be an improvement over Jackson, the performance was validation that Seattle is starting the wrong quarterback. Whitehurst completed 11 of 19 passes for 149 yards and had no turnovers. But on a closer look, it appears Whitehurst wasn't quite as comfortable pushing the tempo as Jackson, and his touchdown throw didn't have a very high degree of difficulty. (Seattle Times) Comment

K-Rod open to Mets return

Frankie Rodriguez would rather be closing than setting up in Milwaukee, which doesn't mean he's unhappy with the Brewers. Still, he hinted Sunday he could see himself closing again in Queens, although the Mets' financial situation makes that unlikely. "Who knows, in the future I could be wearing a Mets uniform," he said. "I don't have no hard feelings for nobody. They did what they had to do. They need to unload a lot of money and I was making too much money right now. But you never know what's going to happen." K-Rod was shipped out of New York hours after the All-Star Game, ending a tenure with the Mets that featured an assault last year of his girlfriend's father at Citi Field.

Melo planning 'epic exhibition'

Carmelo Anthony believes he, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and some friends can bring the stars out for an exhibition in the Big Apple. Nothing is set in stone, but Anthony believes he, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and friends will stage a big exhibition in the Big Apple. "We're going to keep giving back," Anthony said. On his Twitter account [Sunday], Anthony started banging the drums for his Big Apple charity-fest. "Working on an epic exhibition charity game in NYC," he wrote. "Showtime. I'm comin' home." ... Anthony said he wants to keep the barnstorming tour going. Nobody appreciates these exhibitions more than Anthony. It's clear how much he loves basketball, how much he loves being in the gym.
