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.
