Quick hitters: Kiffin, Sarkisian linked

They're only opinions, but at least they're all mine:

• Lane Kiffin would never say it, but you know he desperately wants to win this game against Washington on Saturday. Last thing he needs is to be 0-3 against his good buddy Steve Sarkisian.

• Sark and Kiffin, who were co-offensive coordinators under Pete Carroll, always will be compared because of their similar career arcs. Kind of like Carroll and Jim Harbaugh. Ooops, sorry about that, Pete.
