In the spirit of Thanksgiving, it seems like a good time to take stock of what Seahawks fans can be thankful for this season.

Which of the Seahawks’ three big returning players is most important?

On Wednesday’s edition of 710 ESPN Seattle’s Danny and Gallant, Danny O’Neil and guest host Michael Bumpus went through a few things they wanted to give thanks about regarding the 7-3 Seahawks.

Here’s what they had to say.

Danny O’Neil: Russell Wilson has the keys to the kitchen

“I’m thankful that Pete Carroll listened to reason and decided to let the Seahawks’ offense open things up a little bit earlier in games. It’s been the strategic shift that I think Pete Carroll has made a very rational choice about what his team’s strength is, the way it should play, and it doesn’t necessarily conform to the way he’d prefer games to be played. They’ve got a better shot trying to build bigger leads early in games by letting their quarterback throw the ball early and often.”

Michael Bumpus: No jealousy among the Seahawks’ receivers

“I am thankful for the humbleness in this wide receiver room, because it’s easy to look at DK Metcalf and say this young man is coming in, he’s taking snaps, he’s taking shine, but I don’t feel that. You’ve got Tyler Lockett, one of the most mature young men I’ve ever met. You’ve got David Moore, who understands his role. Everyone’s like, look, OK, it’s going to DK or Lockett on any given day. DK’s gonna get more love just because he’s bigger, faster and stronger and, but it seems like there’s some ‘Kumbaya’ going on in that room, and that is essential if you want to throw the ball like we talked about and get big leads.”

Danny: The dysfunction of the Cincinnati Bengals

“The Bengals didn’t just trade Carlos Dunlap to the Seahawks for a fifth-round pick, but they took back B.J. Finney. They took back a guy who wasn’t playing here at all to provide Carlos Dunlap, who honestly right now I think is having a huge impact, and I’m really excited about the role he’s going to play. He could turn out to be one of the most important additions for this team if its able to make a playoff run because he looks like he fits great.”
