It’s December so the Seahawks must be starting to get hot.

The Seahawks, who defeated the favored Eagles at home last week, believe they’re just hitting their stride based on their recent history playing games at this time of year, during which they’re 20-5 since 2012 in regular-season games during the months of December and January.

Their .800 winning percentage ranks first in the NFL in that span, according to ESPN. It’s way up from their winning percentage in September, October and November since 2012 (.664), but that ranks third-best in the league.

“If you tape a defensive coach’s signaling in the plays, and you compare it to the action of the field, you can quickly discover that when they flap their arms like a seagull, they’re in a blitz,” he said. “The basic formations are pretty easy to decipher with just a quarter of the action taped.”

Walsh did not return The Post’s call for comment, but in 2008 he told “Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel” that the team’s intent was clear.

“Coach Belichick’s explanation for having misinterpreted the rules, to me, that really didn’t sound like taking responsibility for what we had done, especially considering the great lengths that we had gone through to hide what we were doing.”

Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA. The Giants should attack their offensive-line issues aggressively, but picking this high in this draft, a quarterback should be priority No. 1 if the right one is on the board.

We don’t think the haters hate Tebow himself. He’s a try-hard quarterback who led Denver on a memorable playoff run before he fizzled out in New York and New England. He does and says all the right things. The haters hate the Tebow hype, which started in college with “The Speech.” Tebow’s strong beliefs in God have also drawn out both sides. He has done nothing wrong, but perhaps no quarterback with nine career wins as a starter (including playoffs) has driven so many headlines with so much criticism behind it.

Newton might have been more hated at Auburn. There’s been a carry-over into the NFL, especially in 2015. Newton’s end-zone celebration — or “dabbin'” — caught fire after a prolonged dance against the Titans. Newton then bolted early from a Super Bowl press conference, which created another fire-storm. He celebrates every first-down run, and that drives the old-school crowd crazy. The 2015 NFL MVP promises to be a lightning rod for both sides for years to come.

“I thought I was in [the end zone]. But obviously I wasn’t,” Cooper said, “that was just a mistake on my part. I didn’t think anyone was close to me. I slowed down and the guy made a great play.”

Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier, who continues to recover from a serious spinal injury suffered Dec. 4, and his father told ESPN on Thursday that he is showing some improvement that is encouraging and the family continues to rely on its deep faith.

We’re taking it one day at a time, Vernon Shazier said in an interview with the network. We do not know what tomorrow holds. It’s a [daily] journey we don’t know. But I know God is getting the message.

Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery Justin Patton Youth jersey Dec. 6 in Pittsburgh, after being transferred by medivac helicopter from Cincinnati, where he was injured in the Steelers’ game against the Bengals.

And when injured Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston repeatedly was shown on the sidelines, neither Harlan nor Rich Gannon mentioned that Winston wasn’t too injured, last week, to ignite the brawl that led to Evans’ suspension.

So this game, a 15-10 slog 锟斤拷 with 13 punts and 14 penalties 锟斤拷 was pre-afflicted by the misconduct of professionals.

Next, CBS took us to the close of regulation between the Jaguars and a team now known as the Los Angeles Chargers, also played to a half-empty stadium. CBS arrived with 1:33 left in regulation 锟斤拷 just in time to witness the game won, then lost, then headed to overtime, not on acts of football, but on acts of misconduct: an end-zone taunting penalty on the Jags, an unnecessary roughness call against the Chargers. What else is new?

Next, on FOX, Giants-49ers played to an empty house. The game’s first two plays led to flags, one for misconduct, a late hit.

The veteran is not alone. The frustration with the league prioritizing TV cash over players’ health has been a familiar refrain this season as players continue to suffer significant injuries during the Thursday night games.

Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin, after Richard Sherman was lost to a torn ACL, said: This [expletive] should be illegal, It is not OK. It’s not OK. You can quote me on that.

Bills lineman Richie Incognito: These Thursday night games 锟斤拷 they suck. They throw a wrench in our schedule. It’s absolutely ridiculous that we have to do this. As physical as this game is, as much work and preparation that goes into this, to force us to play games in four-day weeks is completely unfair. And it’s [expletive].

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger: It’s miserable, it’s terrible. They need to get rid of this game I think. Just play on Mondays and Sundays. It’s so Brad Hand Jersey tough on the guys. You’re beat up, you’re banged up.

The Giants’ mercurial wide receiver was on the red carpet before the NFL Honors show Saturday night in Minneapolis and was asked his thoughts on his current contract situation.

We have to get the players in the building, and certainly as we go through the offseason here, we just continually talk about what’s right and how we’re going to do business, Shurmur said. We really just have to set the standards and the guidelines. It’s more than just saying, ‘Follow the rules.’ It needs to be relationship-driven.

With the new coach seemingly in his corner and favorite quarterback Eli Manning returning, Beckham certainly looks set up for success and said as much when asked if he thinks he will fit well in the former Vikings offensive coordinator’s schemes.

That seems pretty obvious, Beckham said. Watching what [the Vikings] do and just putting myself in that situation, I know that I’d be doing some pretty good things for our team.

Not even 24 hours after Papa John’s released its quarterly report, showing its lowest stock value in eight months, Schnatter’s net worth dropped by $70 million, Forbes reported. Womens Vincent Valentine Jersey On the same day, the 55-year-old founder blasted the NFL for its poor leadership, a somewhat indirect shot at commissioner Roger Goodell, with whom Schnatter inked a sponsorship deal in 2010.

LeSean McCoy Mens Jersey Jumping to conclusions didn’t reflect well on Papa John’s when Pizza Hut emerged Thursday with a positive sales report and an opposite take on the anthem protests.

We’re not seeing any impact from any of that on our business, Yum Brands CEO Greg Creed 锟斤拷 who owns Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and KFC 锟斤拷 said on a conference call.

While Papa John’s did not meet analysts’ expectations with a 1 percent rise in sales, Pizza Hut, the official sponsor of the NCAA, exceeded forecasts and credited sporting events with benefiting its business.

As the facts and figures were circulating this week, Papa John’s doubled down on social media, firing out their own jabs for all the criticisms pouring in.

This was always going to be a small class for the Cardinal, but it was important that coaches get some quality bodies along the defensive line.

The staff thinks it did that by signing three ESPN 300 defensive linemen in December. Getting Andres Fox and Tobe Umerah out of the southeast was a plus, too. — Aschoff

Forget replacing Kerryon Johnson and Kamryn Pettway for a moment. Gus Malzahn has never failed to produce a 1,000-yard rusher, after all. Focus instead on the receivers, where the Tigers desperately need a difference-maker.

New coach Josh Heupel believes in making the offensive line a priority when taking over a program, so it makes sense that UCF signed six linemen, including the two junior college transfers he was able to bring in shortly after getting hired. UCF loses two stalwarts on the offensive line in Aaron Evans and Chavis Dickey, and replacing them will be a top spring priority. — Adelsonchargers_047

Jason Kasdorf Limited Jersey Not since John Madden burst on to the scene with Pat Summerall nearly four decades ago has a new NFL color analyst been so lauded by fans, critics and TV competitors alike.

The unsung hero behind Romo’s meteoric rise has been Nantz, who has been equal parts coach, mentor and friend to the TV novice. But during a media call Tuesday to discuss the game, the veteran sportscaster gave all the credit to his rookie partner. In fact, Nantz said he realized Romo’s TV potential the first time they sat down to tape a practice game eight months ago, at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York. To Nantz, Romo’s overnight success is no surprise at all.

Everything we do is going to be geared towards winning and being physical, Vrabel said in a statement announcing the hire. We want to prepare our players so they know what to do, which will allow them to play fast and aggressive.
