Setting the scene from CenturyLink Field

Greetings from the press box at CenturyLink Field, where we’re about 90 minutes from kickoff of the Seahawks-Packers “Monday Night Football” game.

Fans are slowly filing into their seats while players from each team warm up on the field. There’s quite a bit going on down there.

Through a pair of binoculars I just saw Seahawks coach Pete Carroll engage in what looked like a light-hearted conversation with former NFL quarterbacks Steve Young and Trent Dilfer, part of the ESPN crew covering the game. Those three then lobbed passes from the 20-yard line, trying to hit the goal post.

Carroll seems relaxed as usual.

The ESPN crew is set up in the northwest corner of the field. The NFL Network is stationed on the opposite end of the stadium.

Some Packers are warming up on the east end of the field. I haven’t spotted receiver Greg Jennings, who was supposed to be a game-time decision because of a groin injury, but we just got word that he is active.

I’ll post the inactives shortly.
