As good as the Seahawks were in 2012 – which was good enough to win 11 games during the regular season and then the franchise’s first road playoff game since 1983 – they’re poised to be even better in 2013.Says who? Pat Kirwan, a longtime NFL scout and personnel man who’s now an NFL Insider for CBSSports.com. In his latest offering for the website, Kirwan lists five teams that are “in the best position to dominate” as the power teams in 2013.Sitting at No. 1 is the Seahawks. Says Kirwan: “The Seahawks won 11 games in 2012, return 20 starters and found their franchise QB in Russell Wilson. They also have close to $18 million in salary cap space. There are 15 significant players with five or less years of experience and they have eight draft picks. Seattle did lose its defensive coordinator to the Jaguars, but Pete Carroll is a defensive-minded coach. This team is in a great situation to start extending solid young players on their roster. GM John Schneider is an aggressive deal maker, and a few trades could bring the Seahawks even more draft picks or players to one of the youngest teams in the NFL.”Kirwan’s formula for making the list includes having “the personnel, money and infrastructure in place.” And rounding out his five power teams are the NFC West-rival 49ers, Patriots, Packers and Broncos.The Seahawks beat each of those teams in 2012 – the Broncos in Denver during the preseason, and then the Packers, Patriots and 49ers during the regular season.
