If the old adage, “Defense wins Championships” holds any bit of truth, then the Seattle Seahawks must be on cloud nine, heading into the Super Bowl. Seattle boasts the league’s number one defense both in terms of total yardage and points allowed. If there is one defense this season that has a chance at stopping the Denver Broncos offense, this would be it.
Prior to Week 1 of this year’s NFL season there was much speculation as to the success of the powerhouse that is the NFC west. Many predictors even believed the NFC West to send 3 teams to the playoffs (SEA, SF, STL). While that might have been somewhat of a bold prediction, understanding the strength of this division is not something to be taken lightly.
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin announced via Twitter on Tuesday night that he will undergo hip surgery.
The Seattle Seahawks announced they have signed quarterback Brady Quinn as the team’s back up starter to Russell Wilson.
This division was pathetic last season, but we aren’t here to talk too much about 2009. The Cardinals won the division last year, and look to be the front runners for taking the title in 2010 as well. The 49ers will probably be able to provide the most competition of any other team in this division, but again, top to bottom this is the worst division in the NFL. Let’s continue looking deeper to find out if there is a silver lining anywhere in this great cloud of the NFC West.
