Seahawks need to improve the agility of their linebackers. Without that, they are going to get eaten up for the intermediate pass ALL DAY! San Francisco and Atlanta have the SAME problem, though between those 3 teams, my money's on San Francisco...and that's BEFORE Colin Kaepernick!

Seahawks have the most lethal secondary...see how tall and physical they are? Seahawks are going to have to rely on them heavily next year...watch Seattle have the lowest percentage of 3rd downs converted against their defence next year!

Green Bay and the Giant's need to retool, Falcon's may still be good...but, i think 49er's and Seahawks will be the two best NFC teams.....Sahawks could very well be the next Superbowl winner.....

Seahawks have too many problems where their linebackers are concerned, and their offensive line also is struggling...they will be second to San Francisco...Seattle is NOT winning a Super Bowl. Sorry to tell you this, Go Blue Forever...

I don't know about that. Seattle only has a few holes at linebacker which they could fill before the season. Being a 49er die hard Seattle worries more than any other team. Russel Wilson with another year under his belt is nothing I want to see. My thought on the secondary is how will the corners perform when the PED's they were taking are completely out of their training and games. But we will see anything can happen I'm football. Good teams can drop out of nowhere

You right...the holes at the linebacker positions in Seattle can be easily filled...just like they could be for San Francisco and Atlanta!

For Russel Wilson to have another breakout season, his offensive line has to be retooled! Russel Wilson can run, though, as was shown by Robert Griffin III, YOU CAN'T RUN FOREVER! Also, Russel Wilson is an undersized quarterback at 5'10", and it is going to be HARD for him to even get off passes against defensive tackles that dwarf him by at least an average of 8", and there will be times where Russel Wilson is going to have to resort to passing from the pocket. Russel Wilson has the same endemic issue as Drew Brees does, and Drew Brees is 6'! Also, look at Drew Brees' offensive line, when New Orleans won the Super Bowl...THAT is what Seattle needs in order to have a chance to be competitive in the playoffs, much less make the playoffs, The_Solution!

Now...if Seattle's secondary were on PED's last season, this can only spell DISASTER for Seattle come next season. Seattle's secondary was very tall and physical...however, if any of that was reliant on PED's, and now, the secondary has to stay away from the juice, then you will see A LOT of tapering off, a drop in speed, physicality and agility. Not a pretty picture, ESPECIALLY when it seemed as if Seattle were a few tweaks from making it all the way up to the AFC Championship game!
