The Seattle Seahawks have the bonus of playing in a weak NFC West, so that should catapult them to another division crown without much problem.
One of those problems, though, could be protecting quarterback Russell Wilson.
Seattle’s offensive line was a mess last season, and only a handful of NFL Draft moves provide reinforcements.
But the Seahawks rode a bad O-line to a 10-5-1 record a year ago. As long as Wilson stays healthy, Seattle’s offense should be in good shape.
Especially if wide receiver Paul Richardson has a good season.
Yet the bread and butter of the Seahawks’ prospects for a playoff push remain with the defense.
This side of the ball will have to have a lot to do with any trip to the Super Bowl this season, and it’s the reason why the Seahawks remain a top-10 team in our NFL power rankings before preseason.
