Gary Mihoces of USA Today pens an early season preview of the Seattle Seahawks.
Mihoces predicts that linebacker Aaron Curry will be a big boost for the Seahawks defensively.
Mihoces also breaks down each position for the Seahawks and has this to say in a capsule overview of Seattle’s 2009 season.
No team was hit harder by injuries last season. After winning the NFC West title for four consecutive years, the Seahawks went 4-12 during Holmgren’s final season. If Hasselbeck can stay healthy, that will be a start. But there are many lingering injury question marks. An 8-8 finish would be a return to respectability for a team in transition.
Pat Kirwan of NFL.com ranks the Seahawks 15th overall in his league power rankings, which I think is about right.
