My thought on the Seahawks even before the season began was that I didn’t understand the preseason hype being bestowed upon Seattle. Many publications had them easily winning the NFC West and possibly advancing far into the playoffs.
I just didn’t see how they improved so much from a really bad 2008. Sure, they have some strong individual contributors such as LB Lofa Tatupu and a promising rookie in Aaron Curry. But their lines and quarterback are aging and the specialty positions aren’t that great.
Sure, Qwest Field is always a difficult place to play, but I just don’t see how the Bears lose this game.
What do you think?
