Doug Baldwin was about to board the charter bus last Friday when he got word Seattle had traded Percy Harvin.

Two days later, he sat in a St. Louis locker room after one of the best games in his career answering questions about whether he was involved in a preseason scuffle with Harvin.

Baldwin and the Seahawks are ready to put the Harvin conversation in the past. But coupled with losing two straight games for the first time since the 2011 season, the Seahawks have lost the appearance of being stable.

Baldwin said Wednesday that despite the commotion and the loss to St. Louis, the mood around the locker room is good heading into Sunday's game at Carolina.
