It was amazing what the Seahawks did last year . The team brought QB Matt Flynn to lead the attack , but had the courage to play the third round first year as a starter Russell Wilson , after an excellent preseason. The figures show that coach Pete Carroll was more than safe bet : a body of fairly average receivers , Wilson threw 3,118 yards, ran for 489, scored 30 touchdowns ( 26 passing and four terrestrial ) and had only 10 interceptions . thought and all other equipment the child dismissed as too low ...
What he did in the playoffs was even more impressive , the increasing production at the time of the decision. As they say in football parlance , a player " clutch" . Besides driving against the Redskins upset the house Duel Wild Card Wilson starred in one of the best games in the history of the playoffs against the Atlanta Falcons : The Seahawks scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter and spent the advantage to 30 seconds left . Even with a field goal in the final moments , was a memorable performance .

The tendency is to repeat the good results despite the same goals of middle of last year. If he can stay healthy , WR Sidney Rice is the best choice , followed by teammate wide receiver Golden Tate and tight end Zach Miller . The franchise has grown Percy Harvin dynamics in a bold return to the Minnesota Vikings , but the player underwent hip surgery and should return to the field in December alone .
Injury that affects the game running so well because Harvin was the team principal returns after the departure of Leon Washington. For a system of attack that ran 55 % of the time last year, the field position is critical. But nothing to worry much, since Seattle has Marshawn "Beast " Lynch and promising Christine Michael and Robert Turbin load the pitch. Fundamental part in the scheme of fashion, " read option " , Lynch ran impressive 1,590 yards and scored 11 touchdowns , averaging five yards per breathtaking loaded. The defenses knew he was going to run, and still could not stop it.
Numbers even more impressive when you look at the average offensive line , which should be the same for 2013 . LT Russell Okung and center Max Unger are good, but you need to reduce the penalties . The guards JRSweezy Paul McQuistan and also the son of Brazilian RT Breno Giacomini complete the range , all three are pretty average.
The Seahawks ' defense deserves special attention in the paper is the best in the NFL. Why? Simple , get a group of defense was the best in performance and 2,012 points yard fourth best performance and add three of the top free agents on the market. Virtually things change a little, a few bruises and suspensions disrupt the start of the season. Healthy and in the field , this defense has everything to bring the NFL.
The most significant improvement was at fever pitch , the team brought to market ED Cliff Avril , former Lions and Michael Bennett , former Buccaneers. Both were leaders of their teams in sacks, 18.5 total count . Along with Chris Clemons and Red Bryant , form the group of the most talented defensive ends in the league. must wait their turn on the field, putting too much pressure on the opposing quarterback on descents , they can all be in training camp " sub package " Pete Carroll. But as said , the bruises may hinder early, Avril fight Clemons muscle injury and back of a disruption in the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee , are both doubtful for the first game against the Carolina Panthers.
Who did not play in the first week is the DT Jordan Hill , freshman elected in the third round to improve the interior of a line that produced an alarming average of 4.5 yards per carry last year. while recovering from a biceps injury , Josh McDaniels , former Dolhpins to do twice the good Brandon Mebane . Another significant drop in the first four games will be Bruce Irvin, who in his first season last year scored eight sacks as DE. Upon returning from suspension for substance use , moved to OLB and will make a great trio with Bobby Wagner and KJ Wright .
The best pass rusher secondary assist talented enough to dominate again airstrikes in 2013 . The arrival of veteran Antoine Winfield playing nickel thicken to a group that already was spectacular last season. Winfield covering the slot with Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman at the tips is the best trio of cornerbacks in the NFL. The security situation also needs no comment , Kam Chancellor is very good against the run game and Earl Thomas is quietly one of the three positions in the league today.
BSN Sports blog prediction: The best performance in the playoffs last year showed that the Seattle Seahawks have the potential to go far in 2013 . With a healthy defense and dual Wilson / Lynch commanding the attack , the team has everything to fight the strong San Francisco 49ers for the NFC West title . Be a champion of the division or the wild card , the Seahawks should qualify for the postseason and is the favorite to represent the conference in the Super Bowl in New York. I expect no less than 11 victories Seattle.
