Skills Analysis Notes
The Seahawks should be good off the edge which should help generate some turnovers but the middle of their defense looks weak and their cornerback skill is questionable at this point.

Overall Coaching / School Analysis
Carrol has really saved his reputation with the job he's done in Seattle. We'll see how he does without the horses he used to have.

Analysis
Seattle still has enough veteran leadership to be considered a dangerous team. Unexpected stability along the offensive line will really help them remain competitive but I question the middle of their defense and their skill positions.
Last season, did the team
meet your expectations?

Expectations/ Outlook
I think a healthy 49ers team and Rams team are both better than Seattle which likely leaves them on the outside of the playoffs looking in.
