Seattle just signed an interior DLineman from Miami, Tony McDaniel, that sacked Wilson last year. If having Harvin gives the Hawks one more scoring drive that would put thier scoring output at an average of 40 pts if they can match what they did in that last half of last season. McDaniel is a force in the middle that can push a big Offensive L Gaurd right back into a QB. He's also a monster against the run. The arms race in the NFC West is getting serious indeed, If the Seahawks even START to get complacent this year all they have to do is think back to the trip to WASH and the next week to a Saturday mourning game in Atlanta to get right for every regular season game at home or away. We don't have the luxury of SF's schedule this year. The players and coaches surely know this better than we fans. With Avril, Bennett and now McDaniel the DLine is clearly better than last season. We may lose to SF in the Bay Game but I honestly, at least on paper, and obviously before the draft don't see a loss to anyone but the single one to SF this season. With SF's schedule they may well run the table except in Seattle. I've said it before but the evidence keeps piling up...Sea 15-1 SF 15-1. I wonder how the NFL will pick the NFC West champ if we split and have the same wins against like opponents? Crazy!!!! LOL
