I live in Seattle. And it's hard to live here and not feel "it." Mind you, I'm stubborn as hell, I held out a long time, but... they wore me down. And by "they," I mean Pete Carroll.
The Seattle Seahawks are the defending world champions and owners of a 9-4 record. They have seen firsthand the distinct challenges of what it takes to repeat, and why the NFL hasn't seen a back-to-back champ since New England a decade ago.

"Do I think I'll be gone after this season?" Lynch told NFL.com on Sunday. "I don't know, man. The Seahawks, their front office gets in the media; they talk a lot. I don't talk too much. I just play the game."

The Falcons' defensive priority is going to have to be shutting down the Seahawks' read-option plays. The Seahawks' offense is normally a fairly good unit with some very good pieces, but is nearly unstoppable when able to successfully sprinkle in a spattering of zone reads.
The Seattle Seahawks have a deadly home field advantage that causes earthquakes.
I don't know if Brian Banks is going to end up in a Seahawks uniform. The jury, as they say, is still out and he's trying out with other teams. But I do know this. I'm extremely proud of my Seahawks, Coach Carroll and most of all, Brian Banks.
Lane Kiffin was once seen as an earnest and bright young coach. He is handsome and well spoken -- the perfect guy to send into a recruit's home. His lineage, thanks to legendary father Monte Kiffin and the famed "Tampa 2" defense, is pristine. Yet, Lane Kiffin has not won.
