Can Hawks make triumphant return atop NFC West?

Published on May 17, 2010 by     

The Seahawks will continue their OTAs this morning, which will be open to the media for the first time today. I’ll have a full report after practice.

Count Sport Illustrated’s Peter King as a Pete Carroll believer. King predicts the Seattle Seahawks will return atop the NFC West in 2010, edging out San Francisco and Arizona to win the NFC West title for the first time in three seasons.

This seems like a bit of a stretch, since the Seahawks have only won nine games over the last two years, and Carroll is still in the midst of revamping the team’s roster. But Arizona appears to have taken a step back with the retirement of Kurt Warner, and the 49ers have yet to prove they can win consistently with Alex Smith at quarterback.

King:

“I don’t love the division, so it’s logical to give Turnaround Team of the Year to Pete Carroll and the Seahawks. ‘I know one thing we will do,’’ he said to me a month ago. ‘We will increase competition at every position on the roster.’ Charlie Whitehurst, Leon Washington, LenDale White (laugh if you must, but he’ll be a factor because Carroll will know how to press his buttons) and a slew of other role players will see to that. I say Matt Hasselbeck has one more sound year in him, and he’ll have weapons enough to edge the 49ers and Cards for the division.”

Adam Schein of Fox Sports believes new additions LenDale White and Leon Washington will thrive in the Northwest.

Ben Malcolmson of Seahawks.com poses three questions to Seahawks running back coach Sherman Smith.

Despite all of the offseason changes, according to Vic Carucci of the NFL Network Arizona head coach Ken Whisenhunt is bullish on his team’s chances to once again win the NFC West.

And, of course, what would the start of your day be without a look at the NFL power rankings. Seattle is ranked No. 24 overall, according to this USA Today poll.
