If Seattle still had Matt Hasselbeck, most would be calling for an NFC West repeat with pro bowlers Sidney Rice and Zach Miller acquired during the off season to complement pro bowl running back Marshawn Lynch.
But this is what happens when you
smoke too much and go out and acquire Tarvaris Jackson and immediately install him as your starting quarterback… And your other option is Charlie Whitehurst.
Just like last season, the Seahawks are in the bottom tier of the power rankings, I recall last years original placement being 28th.
Maybe a season from now the 12th Man will be giddy that they will have first dibs on the best quarterback prospect of an era while the rest of the league sits there pissed off with envy.
I have had someone e-mail me and say, if the Seahawks aren’t going to the Super Bowl, does 2011 really matter in the long run if you can obtain Andrew Luck out of it?
That question, well, it’s tough to answer.
