Seattle Seahawks 2011 Record:  7-9 PPG For: 20.1 (23rd) PPG Against:  19.7 (7th) 2012 Cap Number:  $111,742,430 Draft Position:  #12 Overall Pick Let me be up front with you, Seahawks fans. I hate your team. Not the franchise, not the city of Seattle; just the collection of players that currently comprises your team. I do not understand how they managed to win 7 games with Tarvaris Freaking Jackson at QB, I do not understand how Marshawn Lynch suddenly turned into the second coming of Earl Campbell, and I do not understand how a group of no-name defensive players ended up as the league’s 7th ranked scoring defense. Sorry, I just don’t get it. Going into 2011, I had Seattle pegged as a prime contender in the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes. In fact, after the incredibly weird Tarvaris Jackson signing, I accused them of intentionally tanking the season for a shot at Luck. Even after their surprising season, part of me still wonders whether or not there was some validity in that thought. Nevertheless, I stand before you a humbled man. I certainly still have some reservations about the team, but they are far closer to having a contender than I originally thought. Heck, if they could land themselves a real QB, who knows what could happen?!
