I get that SEA is a very good team based off last season's play but where i the heck does anyone see us losing more than 3 to 4 games which means that SEA has to go 8-0 in SEA and at least .500 on the road to wrest this division from the back to back champion 49ers. I believe we will be much better on ST and defense this year and with Kap at QB so will we on offense. We won with the target on our backs last season and will enter this season stronger now let us see SEA do the same. If they do, they get all the props from me though I will still hate them as a division rival

The seahawks are good yes but why are they automatically better than us? and this years superbowl champs?? they went on a dominating streak last year but so did other teams they beat a crippled RG3 Redskins team they had a hell of comeback against the Falcons but let Ryan go down the field like in 3 plays the niners at least kept them from scoring points when it counted and played a hell of a game against the Ravens yes Seattle will be good this season we all know that but there getting carried away with all this hype.

The general consensus is that the Super Bowl losing team rarely comes back strong the next year. I think the '72 Doplhins were the only team to return to the SB and win it.
It's just people's opinion, which is fine.
Yup. This team is different. We are ahead of the curve.

who cares? let the NFL.com writers and ESPN guys say what they think. We believe they are wrong. I see a 13-3 team here. Not 10-6. I think it's our time to grab the 1st seed in NFC.
If we get that #1 seed, then I don't see us losing our "last" home game in Candlestick. The fans will be so fired up with the playoff implications and could make a huge difference in helping us advance. More confidence in this years team in having a winning division record than the last two seasons, not sure why.

Seahawks winning percentage in 10:00 AM games over the last ten years: .34

Teams the Seahawks play at 10:00 AM this year: Panthers, Colts, Texans, Giants, Falcons
Home games of note; Niners, Saints, Vikings, Rams
Bottom line: do the math. The Seahawks would have to play out of their minds all season to get to 12-4 or 13-3. I don't see it. I see them fading a bit.
They also cut Lynch's lead blocker this weekend too. Their OL is ok, but I don't see Lynch having another 1,500+ yard season (although I have been wrong before), especially if they start having issues at TE. You can only run angry for so long before it takes its toll on you if your protection becomes suspect.
The Seahawks are going to be going against defenses that are no slouch either: SF x 2, STL x 2, Texans to name a few.
Preseason or not, when your first-team OL lets Green Bay (of all defenses) sack Wilson 4 times, that's not saying much for your pass protection.
