2010.He said he feels hes playing consistent

Since their Super Bowl XLVIII victory in New Jersey last season, the Seahawks roster has remained largely unchained. The offensive line has just one new starter – rookie right tackle Justin Britt – and the linebackers, cornerbacks and safeties all have the same core players. The Seahawks are not entirely without change since last February, however, and enter Super Bowl XLIX with an overhauled defensive line and a receiving corps that took significant losses over the year. The wide receiver changes have been discussed and dissected throughout the year for the Seahawks, who let starter Golden Tate walk to the Detroit Lions in free agency and traded Percy Harvin during the season. These changes forced Doug Baldwin to become the feature wide receiver of the offence and promoted Jermain Kearse to a starter. Baldwin fell just of Tates 2013 numbers this season, while Kearse had a significant drop off from Baldwins production. Yet, where these changes are felt for the Seahawks, are on special teams. When healthy, Harvin represents one of the significant kick return threat, as evidenced by his 87-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in Super Bowl XLVIII. Against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship, Baldwin averaged 19.3 yards per kickoff return with a fumble and punt returner Bryan Walters averaged just seven yards. Often overshadowed by the losses of Tate and Harvin, are changes Seattle made to create a smaller and more athletic defensive line. The Seahawks lost starting defensive ends Chris Clemons and Red Bryant in free agency to the Jacksonville Jaguars and placed defensive tackles Brandon Mebane and Jordan Hill on injured reserve during the season. Tony McDaniel then remained as the teams lone holdover from their Super Bowl-winning front four. The transition from Clemons to Michael Bennett was a relatively simple one; replacing one edge rusher with another. But replacing Bryant with Cliff Avril at defensive end represented a significant change in philosophy for the base defence of the Seahawks - trading a 323-pound run stuffer with a 260-pound pass rusher. Though the Seahawks already employed multiple fronts to feature pass rushers, the change in their base package clearly didnt hurt the unit, who once again ranked first in total defence and, surprisingly, improved from seventh against the run to third. The defence did, however, drop from 43 sacks in 2013 to 36 this year. In more minor changes for the Seahawks, K.J. Wright will start in this years Super Bowl over last years MVP Malcolm Smith. Smith started the NFC Championship game and Super Bowl last year in place of Wright, who was battling a foot injury. On the offensive line, Britt has taken over at right tackle for Breno Giacomini, who joined the New York Jets in free agency. The Seahawks once again kept 10 offensive lineman on the active roster this season, but focused on keeping more interior linemen after keeping six offensive tackles last year (of those, only Paul McQuistan was listed a guard/tackle). Alvin Bailey started for Britt against the Packers in the Conference Championship, but the rookie is expected to start against the Patriots despite a knee injury. An injury to Zach Miller allowed Luke Willson to take over at starting tight end this season. Willson had four catches on four targets against the Carolina Panthers in the Divisional Round and has become a significant contributor in the offence. Finally, with Michael Robinson retiring after the 2014 Super Bowl win and Derek Coleman injured, the Seahawks will start former defensive lineman Will Tukuafu at fullback on Sunday. Tukuafu - 6-4, 293-pounds - is a punishing run blocker head-on, but struggles with lateral movement. The Seahawks strongest unit from 2013, the secondary or Legion of Boom, remains unchanged at the starting positions, though Earl Thomas (shoulder) and Richard Sherman (elbow) are battling injuries this year.

The Packers, Lions and Bears were a combined 35-15 and as long as Jay Cutler can say healthy, all three could make the playoffs in 2012.BEIJING, China - Top-ranked Novak Djokovic reached his fifth China Open final and improved his spotless record at the tournament to 23-0 with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Andy Murray on Saturday.In the womens draw, Maria Sharapova overcame eight double-faults, including four as she served for the match, to defeat Ana Ivanovic 6-0, 6-4. She will take on Petra Kvitova in the final after the Czech player beat Samantha Stosur 6-3, 5-7, 6-2.It was Djokovics third win over Murray this year and came just weeks after the Serb knocked him out of the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open in a hard-fought, 3 1/2-hour match.Saturdays semifinal didnt quite reach the same level of quality — the two combined for 43 unforced errors and only 26 winners — but Djokovic proved the steadier player at the key moments and saved four of five break points he faced in the second set.It was a two-set victory today, but still it felt like I had to work hard to win the points, he said.Hell play third-seeded Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic in the final. Berdych won 6-4, 6-1 over Martin Klizan, the qualifier who upset Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals.Overall, Djokovic is on a 24-match winning streak in China, having also won the Shanghai Masters in 2012 and 2013. He has not lost in China since being beaten by Roger Federer in the semifinals in Shanghai in 2010.He said he feels hes playing consistent tennis again after an up-and-down summer that saw him win his seventh Grand Slam title at Wimbledon and marry his long-time girlfriend, Jelena Ristic, then lose early at Cincinnati and Toronto.I just wasnt myself on the court. I wasnt really prepared emotionally to go back and compete again after Wimbledon and a very exhausting summer, everything that happened in my professional and private life, he said. Im glad that Im back in the form that I would like to be in, especially in these courts wwhere I still havent lost ever since I played this tournament.ddddddddddddDespite the loss, Murray was also pleased with how hes been playing in Asia this month. The 11th-ranked Scot accepted wild cards to play in Shenzhen and Beijing to try to improve his ranking and qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals in London.He won the title in Shenzhen last week and reached the semifinals in Beijing, playing eight matches in 10 days.Its been a couple good weeks for me, he said. I got a lot of matches, some momentum. Obviously, I would have liked to have done a little bit better here. But I lost to the No. 1 player in the world. Theres no disgrace in that.On the womens side, Sharapova needed four match points — and a little luck — to close out her win over Ivanovic.With Sharapova serving for the match at 5-4, the two played a nerve-wracking, 10-minute game featuring four double-faults and several wasted match and break points.Ivanovic finally thought she got the break on her fourth chance when Sharapovas backhand went wide, but the Russian challenged the call and the ball was shown to have caught the line by a fraction. Sharapova hit an ace to set up her fourth match point and won it on an Ivanovic error.Definitely got tricky in the end, Sharapova said. I didnt just give her a serve where she could attack because against me shes always played well when she has been behind because shes free and loose.The third-seeded Kvitova will be going for her second title in as many weeks. She captured the inaugural Wuhan Open title last week, and will be going for her fourth of the season on Sunday in Beijing.If she wins, shell also leapfrog Simona Halep to move to No. 2 in the rankings.Im quite tired already. A lot of matches in Wuhan and here, she said. Im looking forward to go to Europe. So Im glad the final match is the last one here, then I can go.
