Don't be surprised if DeSean Jackson, who has four career punt return touchdowns, breaks one Thursday night. The Seahawks have allowed five punt returns TDs since the beginning of the 2008 season, the third-most in the league in that time, behind only the Vikings (7) and Panthers (6). 

Here are those five PR TDs allowed by Seattle:

 Date  Team  Player   Yds.  
 Sept. 7, 2008  Bills  Roscoe Parrish 63
 Nov. 1, 2009  Cowboys       Patrick Crayton     82
 Oct. 17, 2010  Bears  Devin Hester 89
 Sept. 11, 2011      49ers  Ted Ginn 55
 Oct. 30, 2011  Bengals  Brandon Tate 56

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
